“The way you carry yourself is influenced by the way you feel inside. You must feel attractive to be attractive.” –Marilyn Monroe. [L.A. Times interview, 1956.]

Of course, another great genuine quote from Marilyn herself! She is photographed while at her NBC Radio appearance, 1952.

“I will be sensitive as I am–without being ashamed of it." 

One of my favourite quotes, if you couldn’t tell ;D! Made this tonight with yet another REAL genuine quote by Marilyn herself! (It’s in her book, Fragments.) Marilyn is photographed by Milton H. Greene, 1955.

“The one thing a person wants in life, is usually something basic that money can’t buy.” –Marilyn Monroe. [Marilyn: Her Life in Her Own Words by George Barris.]

Another genuine quote by Marilyn herself! Photo is by Milton H. Greene, 1956, and is designed by yours truly~ 

For all Breast Cancer survivours. For those who are suffering with it now. And for those who lost their battle. Stay Strong. 

I know I don’t blog very many serious posts, but this past month we found out that the best grandma a girl could ask for has breast cancer. She’s a huge fan of Melissa Etheridge, who I found out is also a survivour, and we went to her concert in Columbus, Ohio this past Friday. I was lucky enough to snap this photo of her (we were so close!) and when I saw it, I had to make this–not only for my awesome ninja grandma, but for everyone. So stay strong! You can win the battle.
