Happy Birthday!

3 Comments 04 May 2012

Audrey inspired Sweet Sixteen Birthday Cake It’s Audrey Day again! Yes, it’s Audrey Hepburn’s 83rd birthday today, and while she is not with us physically, her spirit is as strong as ever. She still influences millions of people with her grace, style, class, and humanitarian works, and it’s still as heartwarming to hear about her influences now as it was when I first started this old thing 9 years ago.

I thought it would be a nice celebration to share what others are saying and doing in honor of Audrey.

apologies for the delay

No Comments 19 April 2011

Hello, I just wanted to check in with you all and assure you that no, I have not forgotten the contest! I know I had said that the three winners would be announced shortly but I really hadn’t expected so many astounding entries. To be completely honest with you, I needed an assistant to help me narrow down the results and we’re still having trouble getting it down to just three! Your entries were so touching and wonderful, all of them, that it is agony to try and cut it down. If I had the funds, rest assured that all of you would be getting a book! As it is, we are aiming to have the final three chosen in the coming week. I know you hate waiting, but know that it’s because your entries were all so wonderful and that we are taking every single letter to heart.

website down

No Comments 13 May 2009

Hi all, just wanted to let you know that yes, I do know that the website is down right now and apparently has been for quite a while. I’ve been using GoDaddy for years and lately they’ve just been screwing up left and right, not contacting me when the site is down or they have a problem, so once I get back to the States and things get settled I’m going to get a new host company and be done with them forever.

So if you’re ever considering getting your own website, don’t ever use GoDaddy. I’ll even pay you to not use them.*

Other than that, the trip has been fantastic. Just saw the Mona Lisa and Winged Victory today at the Louvre. 🙂

*Okay, maybe not, because I’m not rich. But don’t use them. They’re rubbish.

Mel Ferrer, Audrey Hepburn’s first husband, has died

No Comments 03 June 2008

The news hasn’t been up long, but actor Mel Ferrer died yesterday (Monday, June 2nd) at his home near Santa Barbara. He was 90.

Mel was Audrey’s first husband, and he and Audrey had one child together, son Sean Hepburn Ferrer, who now runs The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund with his half brother Luca Dotti. You can read a little more about Mel in the few articles up so far [here and here], and I’ll keep checking back to see if any more news comes up.

Target loves Audrey!

No Comments 05 May 2008

Living in Southern California (again) means having to drive, lots of freeways, and access to Target stores again. I’ve been going a lot lately hey, I need things and they have them and I always see at least one Audrey portrait hanging in the art section. Today I went to a different Target, because variety is the spice of life, and found this cute tote!

Hello, 2008

No Comments 10 January 2008

Hi all, I hope you had a good start to 2008? I wish I could say I was just taking a little holiday break between the last post and now, but unfortunately I was without Internet from Boxing Day until a few days into this year, and my computer was also in the shop. 🙁 While all of my files seem to be intact, I lost all of my programs, so I don’t have my website building programs back yet. I didn’t even have Word, and that came with the computer! So it’s a big mess behind the scenes here, but at least Internet’s back. I’ll catch you all up with all the good Audrey news, and it’ll [almost] be like nothing happened. Thanks for being so patient and enduring the mess.

At long last, here are the three lucky ladies who will receive fabulous Audrey Hepburn prizes for entering the costume contest. Before I announce them, though, I’d like to say thank you again to all of the beauties who took the time and effort to put together such great costumes and show the world how much they admire dear Audrey. And now, without further ado:

Happy Thanksgiving!

No Comments 23 November 2007

To all who celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a good holiday.

Also, thank you all for your infinite patience. Updates may be a little spotty for another week, since I decided to head south to visit my family at the last minute, so I’m away from home for a while. But I’ll try my best to make updates as often as possible!

I’ll also hold off on announcing the contest winners until I get back, since I can’t ship the goodies until then, but I promise I will make it worth the while of all of the contest entrants.

Thank you again for your understanding and patience!

apologies

No Comments 16 November 2007

Hi everyone. I’m sorry I didn’t get to talk about the contest winners yesterday like I promised, but my mum was in a very nasty car wreck yesterday morning, and obviously that threw me off my game a bit. I didn’t even get around to drawing names from a hat. Mum will be okay, just some awful bruises and four stitches and a totaled car. So tomorrow afternoon I’ll post the winners and we should be all caught up.

Thank you for your understanding!

Deborah Kerr, 1921-2007

No Comments 18 October 2007

Actress Deborah Kerr died Tuesday at the age of 86, according to her agent. I know she never directly worked with Audrey Hepburn, but I feel that she is definitely worth remembering because she was in the same class of actors as Audrey and they did end up having quite a lot in common, actually. Deborah was a refined European woman known for her poise and modesty, like Audrey. They were both dubbed by Marni Nixon, Deborah in The King and I, and Audrey in My Fair Lady. Both women dreamed of being ballerinas and looked up to dancer Margot Fonteyn as their idol as children, and both grew too tall to ever become prima ballerinas. The two were even pitted against each other at the Oscars in 1954, Deborah being nominated for her career-altering performance in From Here to Eternity, and Audrey for her breakthrough performance in Roman Holiday. Audrey won, as we all know, but there were obviously no hard feelings when Deborah went to meet Audrey backstage during the run of Ondine (above left). If you would like to learn more about Deborah Kerr, the L.A. Times wrote a beautiful three-page memorial to her, which you can read here.
