So how does one celebrate this special anniversary? I will admire these lovely old happy photos, learn from Marilyn's witty and wonderful words of wisdom (such as: “Ever noticed how 'What the hell' is always the right answer?”) and perhaps treat myself to one of these limited edition framed photos from Sonic Editions (fabulous gifts!).
Then later I will go see 'My Week with Marilyn' in the cinema, have a few glasses of wine and probably end up coming home tipsy (wearing a brand new red lipstick that I'll only wear once), thinking it's a brilliant idea getting peroxide curls and a tattoed beauty spot.
So, as you understand, I fully and completely dedicate this day to the beautiful blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe. That's the least thing I can do considering the lovely cake she made back in the fifties for the future celebration of Beauty-boks' first anniversary! ;)

“It's not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on.” -M.M.
Now this birthday song was unfortunately, unlike the cake, not dedicated to Beauty-boks, but what the hell ;)
