These quotes by Audrey Hepburn speak to Saucy and she wanted to share them with you in a House of Dior, Hepburn inspired photo shoot...

"If I'm honest, I have to tell you I still read fairy tales and I like them best of all."

"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!"

"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 and I believe in miracles."

"The best thing in life is to hold on to each other."

"Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you."

"I've been lucky. Opportunities don't often come along.
So, when they do, you have to grab them."

"Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it."

"I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it is the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person."

"You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you
are by the earrings he gives you."

"I decided very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it."

"The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows."

"Paris is always a good idea."

"Its that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. this was the whole ethic by which I was brought up: others matter more than you do, so don't fuss dear; get on with it."

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

"Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes... people as they come. The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future."

"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."

"When you have nobody you can make a cup of tea for, when nobody needs you,
that's when I think life is over."

"Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering - because you can't take it in all at once."

"I'm an introvert...I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky."

"I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel."

"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."

"As a matter of fact, I feel rather like expressing myself right now."

"I tried always to do better: saw always a little further. It tried to stretch myself."

Reader, do the words or the style of an icon speak to you? Who is it, and what did they say or do to inspire you to live your best life?

These are beautiful! I must say, the words in the Bible have lived on for thousands of years and speak volumes to me. Those are the ones I focus on -- but I do like the ones you posted here! AH was a beautiful lady, that is for sure! Great job, Saucy!

Stunning these girls are! Lurve the photo of the young lady above the words ... introvert. Sooo classic!

The words I trust are from God himself in the bible.

I loved this post :) Audrey is definitely my role model in life. I'm currently working towards my goal of watching every single movie she was ever in.

Beautiful photos!

What a fun photo shoot. Perfect day, awesome models, terrific props, and gorgeous photography skills, Saucy!!

So sorry to read about the mean girls, too. Loopy is adorable, and I'm so glad others have her back.

Also LOVE that choc/blue bracelet. Some lucky mother is going to be over the top happy!
