Real Beauty Moment: Dating Someone Who’s Facing Death


I was dating someone who passed away from Cancer. I was there with him from the day he was diagnosed to the day he passed away, so that was a big deal for me. I learned a lot about medical conditions, I learned a lot about self love and about real love. I’ve learned a lot from my experience and I wouldn’t have it any other way.


Beyond Perfection

Perfection is non-existent. I think people strive for it way too much. I feel as if the media and social media nowadays create it, but it doesn’t really exist. That’s always been a thing for me because I know what I look like when I take all this [makeup] off in the middle of the night. I guess some people think that people “wake up like this” but they really don’t.
