Our Marilyn Monroe is a fan site dedicated to the life and films of… Well, you guessed it!
I’m Laura, and I originally started Our Marilyn Monroe in 2011 as a Tumblr and Instagram page, eventually stopping in 2015 due to work, personal commitments and travelling. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to kick start my hobby in Marilyn research 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.
My other interests include travel, film, music, true crime and writing. I like to think I have a dark and sarcastic sense of humour but I’m a (reasonably) nice person.
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 finally, 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.
