Many of you may not know her, but her name is Talia. She was 13 years old and a true inspiration to me. She was a fellow You Tuber who put out makeup and beauty tutorials. What made Talia so special was that in the midst of wanting to share beauty advice and make others girls feel pretty, Talia was struggling to live.
She was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and yesterday she went to be with the angels in heaven. She was a sweet angel here on earth and will be missed by so many people. To give you an idea, Tali had over 800,000 subscribers on Youtube alone and she has only been doing this since 2011.
Cover Girl cosmetics made her their honorary spokesperson. This little angel was amazing. I wish I could have met you Tali. May you rest in peace.
Some of you may be thinking, why would I talk about this here. Well besides the fact that I wanted to honor her life in some way, Talia represents to me what life is all about. Its the idea of taking whatever cards you are dealt and make the most of your life. Try to inspire and help others in some small way if you can.

Today’s outfit was inspired by the color of soft pink. To me, its angelic and peaceful and so this is why I thought it would be a good fit for today.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. If you get a chance, please say a prayer for Talia’s family. May they be comforted at this difficult time.
Big Hugs and Thanks for Reading!
