Monday Muse: Marilyn Monroe

Lately, my Monday Muse posts have been about fashion and beauty favourites so today I wanted to feature someone who truly inspires me and has done for a very long time. The breathtakingly beautiful, inside and out, Marilyn Monroe.

Marilyn Monroe to me was such a sensitive, fascinating woman with such a poetic soul. She will be forever loved as a visible icon of beauty and glamour is with her white blonde hair, sleepy-lidded eyes, and a dazzling smile that appears both seductive and carefree. But it truly is some of her words I look on so fondly, and I really hope you love and find comfort in some of these quotes as much as I do.

Today marks the 52nd anniversary of the death of the iconic Marilyn Monroe. Though no longer with us, Marilyn continues to both be a muse and the quintessential archetype of beauty to so many. May she forever rest in peace.

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

"A woman knows by intuition, or instinct, what is best for herself."

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soulmate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”
