“a photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.”

this sweet photograph of the marvelous brigitte bardot with a real life bambi makes me smile on the grayest of days. we’re so used to seeing the sultry, bombshell images of one of my favorite french gals. so for me, this tender moment {seen above} shines brighter than the others and is truly one of my favorite inspirational images.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment, it made my day, I’m so glad you like my blog! Loving yours am now following. Especially like your header.

    This photo of Brigitee Bardot is so beautiful, captures a completely different side of her. There are so many things of inspiration surrounding us, but there’s nothing better than being surrounded by friends outside laughing under the sun!

    She is so beautiful! There’s something ethereal about that first photo. And Scarlett Johansson is my current day fave! I’m on the curvy side as well so I love how she dresses her body.

  8. Audrey, Jackie and Jane (Birkin) take the cake for me when it comes to inspiration. I love the shoot with Audrey and the deer, too!
