Nanette lost her husband, an FDNY firefighter, two years ago after he was critically injured in a fire rescue mission. The strength she showed during our day together and has shown her two daughters is truly inspiring.
"It doesn’t get easier, but it gets better."
“This is a phenomenal thing to do for anyone, especially for someone like me,” Nanette told us. “It gives you something to look forward to when so much bad has happened in your life. It gives you a reason to smile.”
"No matter what curve balls life throws you, believe in yourself. Dig deep and turn lemons into lemonade."
Spending the day with Thelicia and her adorable son, Kobe (who we are now both honorary God Mothers to!), we witnessed the role that style and beauty played in helping her to deal with her illness and inspire confidence. “Having lupus, sometimes I have breakouts, I’ve lost some of my hair, I’ve lost weight and I’ve gained weight because of the medication. Being able to play with fashion and makeup has made my self-esteem stay steady,” she said. “Sometimes you are faced with not feeling like you look your best, and being able to put on a blouse or some lipstick can make you feel a little bit better.”
