I believe in manicures.  I believe in overdressing.  I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick.  I believe in pink.  I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.  I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.  I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.   I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.  I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn
