Yes, Please!

Some of you may already know, I am an Audrey Hepburn fanatic. There are lots of us out there. When I was younger, my grandma told me I was going to grow up and be like Audrey Hepburn. So I thought, she meant I was going to be a famous movie star. But my grandma meant, I was going to be skinny and she was right, but I didn't find out until later...I thought she had extremely high hopes for me.

The first time I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's, I was 13 and staying with my grandparents for two weeks. The only channel that my grandmother ever watched was Turner Classic Movies. If it was black and white, she was watching it. I remember thinking how cool Holly Golightly was, but I didn't really understand that she was a call girl. And I loved that her couch was a bathtub cut in half and her cat was named Cat.

So my obsession began and the collecting of movies followed. 
WARNING: massive amounts of Audrey goodness below!

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

 Well, Amazon being the genius website it is recommended this gem to me.

So it's on my Christmas list now.

Top 5 Audrey Hepburn movies

1. Breakfast at Tiffany's- It's a classic.
2. Funny Face- singing, dancing, fashion, and Paris!
3. How to Steal a Million- Audrey the art thief.
4. Roman Holiday- hello, vespa!
5. Wait Until Dark- it's a thriller!
Do you have a favorite Audrey Hepburn movie? Or classic flick?
