"I believe in pink.
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.
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
I believe in miracles."

- Audrey Hepburn

An artist-inspired banner of Audrey Hepburn flutters in the air high above the design district's walkway reminding any who care to notice that style - one's own personal style - is timeless. I noticed the banner and the message and smiled. I have also noticed that Audrey Hepburn's style was not something that was simply black and white but included so many shades of color and delight. We are each like that - our style is signature... and timeless... a living miracle, if you ask me...

I was just thinking of "Roman Summer" - one of Audrey's marvelous performances...such fun, such flair and an unlikely love story which didn't have the fairy tale ending. She shone throughout I would hope we each can as we enjoy BEing who we are - stylish!

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
