I finished the month of September cleaning up and organizing all my DVDs, including my beloved little collection of Audrey Hepburn movies! Then, once I’m also in my vacations of college, I was wondering in making an Audrey Marathon, watching all these movies that I have here by a chronological order… What do you think about it? 😀
Below, there is a cute picture of the collection that I took earlier and a list of the original titles of the movies, once most of mine are in Portuguese! Hope you like! ❤

After some hectic months, I’m finally having some days off this week, especially on this weekend. So what’s better than a hot popcorn, a warm blanket and some classic movies to (re)watch? Then, once I was missing so much in these days my favorite person at all, Audrey Hepburn, I’m re-watching (on a marathon, of course!) some of her movies from 60’s…
The chosen was: “Charade” (1963), a Stanley Donen movie, also starred by Cary Grant; “Paris when it sizzles” (1963), also starred by William Holden, this movie had such special participation of Marlene Dietrich, Mel Ferrer (Audrey’s first husband) and Tony Curtis; and “Two for the road” (1967), another Stanley Donen movie, this time co-starred by Albert Finney. Here we go!!
To celebrate the arrival of Summer last week in some places (and warming us here in Brazil who are in Winter), I’m going to post in the next weeks a series of pictures of our adorable stars at beach! Starting by this cute photo of Audrey Hepburn! Hope you enjoy.
Good morning! Have a great week! 😉

Happy Birthday to the lovely and unforgettable Audrey Hepburn! ❤
(04 May 1929 – 20 January 1993)
Like I said yesterday, the another book which I bought (and I was anxiously waiting for it) is about my favorite actress Audrey Hepburn. I already said here before how she is important for me, cause she inspires me to be a better person each day and I believe she was a great and incredible being human (or even a big and lovely soul here in Earth).
Then, who’s better that her son to talk about her and to tell us a little about how she was in her private life? This book is exactly this: a mix of her biography, writing by her eldest son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, where he also wrote his memories about her as his mom. In this adorable book we can see some personal materials about Audrey H., like family photographs, letters, documents and other special things, which every fan would love to see.
Oh, the book title is “Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit” (2005), and I have to confess that when I bought it, I did know it was a very special book, however when I got it in my hands I almost cry (really!), cause it’s very beautiful and sensitive, we can see that it was wrote with much love, respect, care and soul (if you can understand me).
Below I just add some photos of the front and back cover, and one internal picture. And to finish this post I only want to say Thank You Mr. Sean H. Ferrer, for this magical gift to all people who admires your Mom! I don’t even have words (in English or Portuguese) to express what I want to say, only love ❤
