Book review: Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw

Just before I started my A Levels I watched my first Audrey Hepburn film and I was instantly hooked. I devoured every film, bought every biography, posters adorned my walls and, eventually, I began to write about her life and career - first for my Film Studies essays and later for a couple of websites… Continue reading Book review: Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw

My perfect day out

My bestie left the most incredible link on my Facebook timeline the other day. Regular readers of this blog will know that I'm a massive Audrey Hepburn fan (see previous posts here) - I've got dozens of books, every DVD, posters, prints, I've been to a photography exhibition... She really was the most fabulous woman… Continue reading My perfect day out

Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn tote bag from the National Portrait Gallery

I'm gutted that I can't make the Audrey Hepburn exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery (day trips on the train to London are virtually impossible when you've got a three-month old) and have been perusing the online shop on their website to make up for it. I love the quote on this tote bag -… Continue reading Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn tote bag from the National Portrait Gallery

Jenson has been super-colicy (more on that in another post) and it's been hard to stay up to date with the blogosphere. Speaking of which, I still haven't read the latest issue of Blogosphere! Here… Continue reading Follow Friday #17

Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn print from B&Q

We went out for a big walk yesterday (I'm loving my post-cesarean milestones!) and called into B&Q - Luke is customising my old shitty laptop case for me and we needed some spray paint. It's rude not to browse the awesome prints and canvases, even though we're running out of wall space, and I fell… Continue reading Item of the day: Audrey Hepburn print from B&Q

Item of the day: To Audrey With Love

I'm a massive Audrey Hepburn fan - I think she's one of the most fabulous people to have ever graced this planet - and I have pretty much every book and DVD going featuring/about her. But not this. To Audrey With Love is a new beauty to be treasured! It's a hardcover book, featuring 150… Continue reading Item of the day: To Audrey With Love
