30 day beauty challenge: day 13

I hope your weekend is going well! I am still crazy busy, trying to get everything done! While I try to do that, here is today's beauty challenge: Photo of your fashion/style icon.


To me, Audrey Hepburn is perfection. She embodies everything I strive to be, and so many qualities I admire. Not only was she jaw-droppingly beautiful, she posessed so much class, grace, and elegance.  There are so many reasons why Audrey has left a lasting impression: Her style was classic and chic; Her films were dynamic; She had a kind and giving heart.


Here are a few of my favourite Audrey quotes:

"Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others."

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

“You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.” 

“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles” 

“Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn't help if your ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up.” 

And here is my other style icon, Victoria Beckham, as Audrey:


Who is your style icon?

  3. Who doesn't like Audrey? Honestly, I seriously don't have a style icon, or a movie star that I thrived to be like. I kinda just do me, I dress the way I want, yogas and vnecks. I'm not fancy, just like to be comfortable. But I guess I do try to be like Audrey when I dress up. Simple dresses, and not wearing mile high heels.

  4. my twin adores here! She basically have every single picture frame ever to be sold in her room. Audrey Hepburn is an amazing icon, and I am glad when people admire her rather than the druggies, I mean actresses, of today. I heard so much of her and her charity power, to bad she left us too soon. Great post.

  13. I know these times are crazy and I hope you do get everything you need done and I know you will ;) I would have to say that my style icons would have to be first, Diana Ross then Janet Jackson, I do love Victoria Beckham and I know this is silly but I do idolize Kim Kardashian.
