Limited edition art for a good cause

1 Comment 16 June 2011

I’m well aware of the fact that you all love the illustrations for Just Being Audrey by now. How could you not love Julia Denos’s adorable drawings of a rosy-cheeked Audrey? Well, if you own the book but would like something more, maybe something worth framing or sending off to friends, Julia has just opened a shop with limited edition prints, both of illustrations from the book and never before seen drawings, plus a darling set of greeting cards. The prints are $50-150, while the note cards are more affordable at $25, but with all of these, proceeds go to the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund. Isn’t that great? You get something you love, you support an artist, and children in need are helped as well. Everybody wins.

Everyone loves Audrey Hepburn, and if they don’t, it’s only because they haven’t met her yet.

the ultimate Mother’s Day gifts

No Comments 16 April 2008

I just got a little catalogue in the mail from UNICEF, and it’s encouraging their members to buy one of their Inspired Gifts for your mum this Mother’s Day (May 11th). I think it’s actually a very sweet idea, seeing that the holiday is just a made up Hallmark holiday anyway, and could you give the woman who gave you life* anything better than the chance to touch other childrens lives?

Gifts that give back

No Comments 11 December 2007

If you haven’t already started, I know you’re already at least looking for gifts to start buying for your friends and family for the upcoming holidays. While there are literally billions of things you could get someone that would be a great gift, how about a little something that keeps on giving? More and more, companies are making products that are not only pretty and useful, but they’re made by people in need with the proceeds going to help them, or a product is sold through a charity with the purchase price going towards a certain goal the charity has in mind. Newsday.com has a great article up talking about some of these double-giving presents you might want to consider.

Audrey Hepburn sewing patterns: Fall 2007

4 Comments 13 October 2007

It seems I’ve been remiss in my duties again. A lot of women have been searching for Audrey Hepburn, Holly Golightly, or Breakfast at Tiffany’s sewing patterns so they can make their own costumes for Halloween (or everyday life, because Audrey Hepburn is year-round!), and I just left you to your own devices. I’ve felt guilty, though, and all day yesterday I scoured the Internet for suitable patterns to make you dream Audrey costume. Be prepared and take notes, because there’s a lot here! I’m also going to make this a regular theme, updating once a season for any new patterns, so check back once in a while for new goodies.

More Holly Golightly/Audrey Hepburn costume tips

No Comments 03 October 2007

If you missed it the first time around, here’s part one of the costume tips. I’ve found even more great items to put together a really fantastic Audrey Hepburn or Holly Golightly costume, so keep reading!

1. Opera gloves. How could you forget opera gloves? If you’d really like to look classy, try to find some above the elbow length gloves, which make for a more formal, elegant look. I’ve found some beautiful satin gloves in a vast array of colours, so you can do black for Holly Golightly or white/cream for a Princess Ann or Eliza Doolittle look.

How to be Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly for Halloween

5 Comments 24 September 2007

It’s that time of year again … Halloween! And I’ve noticed that a lot of people have been searching for an Audrey Hepburn costume, so here’s everything you need all in one convenient post. Since most women tend to do Holly Golightly as an easily recognizable Audrey costume, most of these tips are Breakfast at Tiffany’s oriented. The film was recently voted the most stylish film of all time, so it’s hard to go wrong as Holly Golightly!

the after-Christmas clean up

No Comments 26 December 2006

Well, I hope everyone had a good holiday, or is currently having a great holiday with Boxing Day or Kwanzaa! It’s nice to just sit back and relax for a bit, isn’t it? And eat too much, of course. 😉 I also hope you had a good, Audrey-filled holiday! But if you didn’t get a certain thing you wanted, don’t worry. Amazon always has low prices and ships pretty fast, so your after the holiday goodies can still get to you before the post-holiday blues really set in. Personally, I didn’t get a calendar, so I’m off to find one today. How could you not have an Audrey calendar when there’s so many to choose from?

Since it’s that time of year (and since this is the only news coming in), here’s two little shopping tips.

Are you planning on getting anyone Audrey Style this year, or even maybe buying it for yourself? It may cost a little more than Amazon’s markdowns, but you can actually buy the book from UNICEF! It’s in the For Adults section, or you can just go straight here. You can even throw in Sean’s An Elegant Spirit, which is also available through the charity. If you’re going to be buying some Audrey gifts anyway, it might as well help out someone in need and brighten two lives at once. 🙂 Found through this article.
