Beauty Is ...

My daughters and I are huge fans of Audrey Hepburn. I am working on scrapbook albums for each of them and found this poem about beauty that Audrey wrote when she was asked to share her "beauty tips" and am currently working on pages that incorporate it. This poem was read at her funeral.

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;

one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

What a clear vision of beauty she had! Have any "beauty tips" you would like to share? I would love to hear them!

  1. There is a book you must get. It is called "What would Audrey do?" I gave it as a gift to a dear friend of mine. I thought it was a great concept because I love Audrey also. She adored the gift, of course!
