feel good friday

Teen Vogue has made a girl dreams come true. The Make-A-Wish Foundation hooked up with Teen Vogue to make this 19-year-old brain cancer survivors dream of becoming a high fashion model a reality. After the shoot, she and her sister were allowed to take home all the dresses and accessories. When Teen Vogue talked to her post-photo shoot they discovered she decided to donate some of the garments to a charity that helps underprivileged girls in need of prom dresses! What a wonderful story!

This weeks swoonsday eye candy is John Krasinski, but you may know him best as 'Jim Halpert.' This former intern for 'The Late Show with Conan O'Brien' has that goofy, loveable charisma--both on and off 'The Office.' If you're having a difficult week, and need a boost getting to the weekend, I hope this helps!
