    We have so much in common! Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe are also my beauty and fashion icons. I also consider makeup as a hobby, I look forward to it every day! I’m also super indecisive, obsessed with vanilla and PLL and the Devil Wears Prada. My sister and I watch that every time she comes home, we have probably watched about 50 times, we laugh our heads off at the gag reel! I also really love photography, I might be getting my dad’s old polaroid from when they were new, he was a really good photographer! xoxo
