Our Marilyn Monroe is a fan site dedicated to the life and films of Marilyn Monroe!
A little about me! I’m Laura and I live in the UK with my husband, daughter and two German Shepherds.
I originally started OurMM in 2011 on Tumblr and Instagram. I can’t remember when I eventually stopped but it was around 2015.
Due to work, personal commitments and travelling (in 2015) I had less and less time to focus on Marilyn as a hobby. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, it occurred to me that I needed to take up a hobby again and thus Our Marilyn Monroe was reborn.
Previously, I had a modest collection of Marilyn books and items (around 40-50 books, dolls, figurines, vintage magazines merchandise and prints). Keeping things as simple and as minimal as possible, I now have a select number of biographies that I rely on for research and a large collection of magazines as well as a couple of vintage Marilyn items.
My other interests include travel, film (film noir, gangster, thriller, Classic Hollywood), music (including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Eagles, McFly, Halsey, Billie Eilish, Beatles, The Weeknd and more!), true crime (books, podcasts, documentaries, movies) and writing. I like to think I have a good sense of humour and that I’m a nice person. But be warned, insults and rudeness will not be tolerated here or on my social media so BE KIND.
I want to give a shout out to those who have helped me with research and given me a tonne of inspiration including my friends Jackie and Elisa from Marilyn Remembered Fan Club, Kelly from Silver Technicolour, Scott from The Marilyn Monroe Collection and April from Classic Blondes.
This website and my social media are purely for entertainment and research purposes. I can guarantee that I have tried my best in ensuring all evidence comes from credible sources. If there is an error, KINDLY and PRIVATELY let me know. We are all human after all!
