The Fabulous Marilyn Monroe...

"I don't want to make money. I just want to be wonderful."
Today would've been the fabulous Marilyn Monroe's 83rd birthday. For as long as I can remember I have always been completely obsessed with her. I collect any and all things relating to her and my little apartment is becoming a little bit of a Marilyn shrine but I can't help it. So of course when I got a fabulous blonde puppy I had to name her after one of my icons and that's where Maizey gets her middle name Monroe from (as if you hadn't guessed by now). Most people love her pictures because she is beautiful but I honestly love learning about her life as well. She was adored by so many but had a heartbreaking life. I do not believe there will be anyone that will captivate so many people for so long even after they pass away. It's a complete joke that anyone in Hollywood now will compare themselves to her... ahem Lindsay Lohan & Paris Hilton i'm talking to you!

Recently LIFE Magazine published some never-before-seen pictures that they just found the negatives to in their archives. They are of her at the young age of 24 just before she became hugely famous, they are lovely and I recommend you take a couple minutes out of your day to check them out.

"It's woman's spirit and mood a man has to stimulate in order to make sex interesting. The real lover is the man who can thrill you by touching your head or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space."
