Rainbow Rocks

The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls held their convention in Grand Rapids, MI this year and I was honored to be one of the guest speakers. The girls even hosted a Breakfast at Tiffany’s-theme lunch – complete with a string of pearls for each girl! It truly was an international event – girls […]

Testify, Nancy!

Nancy is leading a confident, stylish, Hepburn lifestyle. Go, Nancy! I’m 41 now, but as a child and teenager, jeans and sweat pants were for me! My mother always made me dress up to go out to eat or to the mall in the 70s and early 80s; it was the thing to do. When […]

Testify, Tiffany!

Tiffany was inspired to make Valentine’s Day “Love in My Life Awareness Day” – what a great idea! Love and hugs to you, Tiffany! For my “Hepburn moment” I changed my outlook on Valentine’s Day.  Instead of viewing it as Single’s Awareness Day, I decided to look at it as “Love in My Life Awareness Day.”  […]

Testify, Jaide!

Jaide from Australia was inspired to start her own blog and other great projects to promote self-esteem and confidence. Keep up the great work, Jaide! My name is Jaide, I’m 18, from Australia and am currently running a blog through the social network of tumblr. I was motivated to create my blog after being disturbed […]

Testify, Kelly!

Kelly wrote in about what it means to be a Hepburn in high school – which, let’s be honest, is not easy! Go Kelly! My name is Kelly. I am currently a high school senior in Massachusetts. I read your book, How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World, while I was a sophomore. […]


I hear so many stories about girls making a difference in the world, living the Hepburn lifestyle, and changing their own lives for the better…they are great stories and I wish you could hear them! So I decided to start opening up this blog to YOU, the readers. Email me with your personal Hepburn projects, […]


Just wanted to give a shout-out to Troy University. Several sororities teamed up to create a confidence-building organization in their local high school after reading the book, and guess what the club is called? The Hepburns! I love it! It’s so amazing to hear about girls taking initiative and getting out there and making a […]

We Bought a Zoo

The other day, I was casually telling a friend that I feel like I’m running a zoo. She laughed and said, “Oh, did you see the movie?” Clueless about any/all current entertainment selections, I said, “No? What movie?” Well, apparently there’s a movie out about buying a zoo, or moving into a zoo, or running […]

The Lizard

We recently returned from a two-week vacation and, in that time, it appears as though the Animal Kingdom got together and discussed our absence. Apparently it looked as though we were never coming back so they came to the conclusion to simply move in. Well, we did come back. And not two days after we […]

Let’s Hear It For The Boys

People are always asking me if I’m going to write a how-to-be-classy book for guys. The answer is probably not. Mostly because I’m not a guy. I’m constantly asking my husband, “why do guys do that?” or “what does it mean when boys say this?” or “how do you manage to make such a big […]
