 .. So make sure you come visit me there!

Cher, “The Goddess of Pop”, is an incredibly talented woman. She has had an amazing career as a recording artist, record producer, actress, television star, and director. She has won a gazillion awards and is undeniably a total superstar! Here’s little baby Cher.. well no, but here’s Cher as a young woman… <3

"I'm insecure about everything, because... I'm never going to look in the mirror and see this blond, blue-eyed girl. That is my idea of what I'd like to look like."

"I've always taken risks, and never worried what the world might really think of me."

"If you really want something you can figure out how to make it happen."

"If you are going to wait for someone to encourage you to do something, you just better give it up."

"I don't know what keeps me down to earth, but it sure isn't ironing. I send mine out."

"Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great."

"A girl can wait for the right man to come along but in the meantime that still doesn't mean she can't have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones."

"Living your life the way you want to live it is the most important thing, so if you have to pay small prices along the way, it's not important."

“I wouldn't give myself any advice, because advice is kind of bullshit. Take a deep breath and don't take any of it too seriously.”

"I don't need a man. But I'm happier with one. I like to have someone I can touch and squeeze and kiss. But I don't fold up and die if I don't have a man around."

"For better or worse, I never plan my life. I focus on today. I love spontaneity. That is what has put me in some strange and wonderful places in my life."

"Men should be like Kleenex, soft, strong and disposable."

“Don’t take your toys inside just because it’s raining.”

Have a lovely day, and remember cher-ing is caring ;-)

Sharon Tate

Today I want to share with you the beautiful Sharon Tate and some of her thoughts on life.
Enjoy!

 “I really think that if you live for today, tomorrow takes care of itself.”

“I’m one of those mad, irrational characters who simply loves men. I love them because they’re men. Women, …I don’t like to compete against them or play games. It’s a waste of time.”

“I read that I’m supposed to be Hollywood’s new sex symbol, that Marty has groomed me as Marilyn Monroe’s replacement. I think I’m the most unsexy thing that ever was. I’m open for everything of course, but I’m certainly not aware of being sexy.”

“I’m happier when I’m working. I don’t have time to think much that way.”

“It’s just as difficult to be pretty as it is to be homely. People take you
from the surface level, but they’ll see an unattractive girl and think she
must have something else.”

 “They said they had a plan for me. They would train me and prepare me. I was immediately put into training-like a race horse. I had a job to stay the way I was. They told me ‘Cream your face, Sharon….Put on more eyeliner, Sharon…Stick out your boobs, Sharon.”

 “What I want out of life is happiness. I don’t want money. I get $350 a week. I drive a Buick Riviera. I have all the clothes I want. I like myself. I’m glad I’m me. I’d like to have a baby.”

“I really think that if you live for today, tomorrow takes care of itself.”

“I’m just me. If I am sexy, it’s just something I do naturally, like picking up a knife and fork to eat. I think people who try to be sexy are the most unsexy people in the world.”

“If you just take it down to bare facts, the reason for living is the reason you make it. I mean the brain was made to create.”

“My definition of love is being full. Complete. It makes everything lighter. Beauty is something you see. Love is something you feel.”

“When I love, I love hard.”

“I’m very unpredictable. Very, very impulsive. Extremely. Absolutely!
Sometimes I don’t know what I want to do from one day to the next. I can’t
enjoy anything premeditated; I just do it as I feel it. But whatever I do is
motivated by honesty.”

Have a lovely Monday vintage lovers!

Brigitte Bardot

Brigitte Bardot.. the French model, singer, actress, and animal activist. She was a major sex symbol of the 60s and rightly so!
She recorded 80 songs and starred in 47 films by her retirement in 1973.
Here is the beautiful woman and some of what she had to say..

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

Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.

Fame had brought me so much unhappiness.

I really wanted to die at certain periods in my life. Death was like love, a romantic escape. I took pills because I didn’t want to throw myself off my balcony and know people would photograph me lying dead below.

I have been very happy, very rich, very beautiful, much adulated, very famous and very unhappy.

I have no private life at all. I am a hunted woman. I can’t take a step without being questioned and surrounded.

I absolutely loathe luxury. It is the one thing I cannot stand.

I am all right when I work. I am not superficial and I am not ungrateful.

Do you have to have a reason for loving?

I don’t think when I make love.

It is better to be unfaithful than to be faithful without wanting to be.

I leave before being left. I decide.

It is sad to grow old but nice to ripen.

I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.

The myth of Bardot is finished, but Brigitte is me.

Thanks all! Have a lovely day!

american graffiti

American Graffiti” is a 1973 film set in the Summer of ’62 (although many of the cars and songs were released post-1962) about the last night before leaving for college. My boyfriend and I watched this movie last night to lighten the mood after watching Gus Van Sant’sElephant” (a story based on the Columbine High School massacre), which was incredibly made but hard to watch. George Lucas‘ “American Graffiti” did the trick alright!

Here are some photos and memorable quotes from the film.

“Hey, what do you say, Curt? Last night in town… you guys gonna have a little bash before you leave?”

“Hey… zit makeup.”

“You think I care if you go off? You think I’m gonna crack up or something? Boy, are you conceited!”

“That’s bitchin’ tuck and roll! You know, I really love the feel of tuck and roll upholstery.”

Shhh. Listen, listen! Look at it this way. Now, you got three choices. One, you chicken out and in that case I let Ants tie you to the car and drag you around a little bit and you don’t want that. Right?”
No.”
Two, you foul up and Holstein hears you and, well uh… you don’t want that, right?”
No, I don’t.”
Three, you are successful and you join the Pharaohs with a car coat and a blood initiation and all that, huh?”

What’s your name?”
My name? Mud, if anybody sees you.”

“Girls don’t pay – guys pay!”

“Let’s catch ’em at the light. Jump out and flatten their tires.”

“Hey, you know a guy around here with a piss yellow deuce coupe, supposed to be hot stuff?”

“Man, I can’t keep track of all you punks runnin’ ’round here backwards.”

“You know, what, Terry. I had a pretty good time tonight”

“Get your bugaloos out baby! The Wolfman is everywhere.”

I can’t wait to check out the sequel, “More American Graffiti“.
