Happy birthday, dear Audrey!

2 Comments

If you didn’t already know, today is Audrey Hepburn’s birthday! If she was still with us she would have been 82 years old today, but you know what? Audrey is still very much with us. Her influence is as strong as ever, she’s as popular as ever, and everyone still wants to be her.

To celebrate the fairest lady’s birthday, WatchMojo put together a video tutorial on how to get Audrey’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s look in makeup:

So if you would like to celebrate Audrey’s birthday but don’t quite know what to do, why not give yourself a little makeover and pop in one of her films? To make it extra Audrey, indulge with a piece of chocolate, Audrey’s favourite treat. Remember a lovely person by making yourself feel beautiful.

Special thanks to Stephanie for sharing this link with us.

Finally, after much deliberation (and some sweet agony), my lovely assistant and I have chosen the three lucky people to win a free copy of Just Being Audrey. So check your email!

If you weren’t selected in this contest … please don’t take it personally, or think anything badly about your entry. They were all good, and they were all taken to heart and thought over carefully. It was extremely difficult to just choose three out of so many quality entries, and if I had the funds, I would definitely have sent every single one of you a book. Rest assured, if I ever win the lottery, I will split the funds between you lovely people and UNICEF. 🙂

But fear not, because there will always be more contests! Thank you again to every single person who entered and shared such wonderful memories and thoughts, and please know that all of you touched our hearts with your letters. Audrey has the best fans.

Special thanks again and again to Kath for all of her help during this contest.

apologies for the delay

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.

Just a quick note to say that the contest has now closed, and thank each and every one of you who entered! I haven’t read all of the letters yet, but based on what I have read, this won’t be an easy decision. So many entries were just fantastic, I really really wish I could afford to send every single one of you a book!

Winners will be announced shortly. Thanks again for entering!

Just Being Audrey giveaway contest!

Comments Off on Just Being Audrey giveaway contest!

You’ve waited long enough, now here it is: I will be giving away three (3) copies of the gorgeous children’s picture book Just Being Audrey. Highly acclaimed and already deeply loved, this book is short and sweet and beautifully written. Designed for children but accessible to all, the book gives a lovely summary of Audrey’s life, from la petite ballerina in Holland to the trendsetting Hollywood icon to the UNICEF ambassador, all illustrated with divine full color (and often full page) drawings.

Just Being Audrey arrives!

2 Comments

I’ve received quite a response from you readers, so now I must have a contest giving away a few copies of this book or you’ll never forgive me. 🙂 The book was just released today though, so be patient as I get things in order!

I also wanted to tell you that if you are on Facebook, the Just Being Audrey page is giving away an autographed copy of the book. All you have to do is leave a comment on the status asking what your favourite Audrey film is and you are entered to win! Their contest runs until Friday, so if you’re interested, go here. Once their contest has ended and the winner announced I think I will start up my contest. I think giving away 3 copies ought to be good.

Oh, and just to clarify: my contests are always open world-wide, not just to US residents. If you can receive packages then you can enter.

Hello everyone! I hope you are all happy and well in this new year. My apologies for falling behind on the news a bit, it’s been busy, but I have a peace offering.

Next week the sweetest children’s book is coming out, Just Being Audrey. I’m sure some of you have already heard about it, but if not, just look at how darling it is. I love the illustrations so much, don’t you? If you do, click here to go to the illustrator’s blog and see a few more pictures from the book, which she was kind enough to share from her advance copy of the book.

No comment on Emma Thompson’s ignorance

34 Comments

I found this late last night and wanted to sleep on my anger before sharing with you. As I’ve discussed with you before, Emma Thompson has penned the screenplay for the new adaptation of My Fair Lady, which has been in pre-production for a couple of years now. Nothing is moving forward, and while out promoting her new Nanny McPhee film I suppose Emma wanted to remind everyone that she has a film waiting to be made, and the best way to get attention would be to slag on Audrey. Yes, Emma Thompson trash talks Audrey Hepburn.
