Icon Alert: Marilyn Monroe

marilyn monroe

Last weekend, I watched Michelle Williams portray the legendary Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn.  It was so wonderful to get an idea of how Marilyn's personal life really was.  Watching the movie made me realize that although she has passed many years ago, she is still extremely influential on present day Hollywood.  Songs have been written about her like Candle in the Wind by Elton John, & her songs are still featured in many movies like the Moulin Rouge or Burlesque.  Her influence on the world is amazing even after all these years, & it is safe to say that no matter how many years pass, she will still remain as one of America's most iconic women.

A Quote for Inspiration:

“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.”
