Huffington Post - 10 days
It looks like Miranda Kerr and her fiancé Evan Spiegel are sticking to sexy Snapchats.  The model insinuated that she and her betrothed are waiting to have sex until after the wedding in a recent interview with UK paper The Times. It all came out during an exchange about methods of birth control, after Kerr admitted that she wasn’t using protection. When the interviewer asked whether or not she was planning to have another baby, the model explained: “Not yet. Not until after we get married. My partner is very traditional.” “We can’t... I mean we’re just... waiting,” she continued.  The apparent decision to wait is reminiscent of another celebrity couple, singer Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who didn’t have sex until their wedding night.  Spiegel and Kerr were first reported to be dating in 2015 and made their red carpet debut in February 2016. Just a few months later, the two announced their engagement in July, using a Snapchat filter of course ...

Grief and the Loss of a Child: We Live To Love
Huffington Post - 4 months
Adversity is something all of us experience in our lives. We can all relate to those tough times. When a child dies, the pain and devastation of loss can feel desolating. And as we go through the cycles of grief, denial can shield us against the full impact of the loss. To anyone who has ever experienced the loss of a child, my heart goes out to you. Losing a child is the most devastating event a human being can go through. A mother bereaved over the loss of her son asked for my council recently. I felt her heartache. I, too, lost a stepdaughter to a drug overdose. Having gone through painstaking years of grief, I knew I had to face the question that had been haunting me. How do we ever recover from such a tragic loss? When we lose someone we love, we embrace those around us with greater awareness and gratitude. When we share our story, we reach out to those who too are suffering from isolation by empathizing and connecting and saying out loud, "I know how you feel." Sharing ...

Get Over the Gossip: A Response to Brad and Angelina's Divorce
Huffington Post - 5 months
Once, the idea of Brangelina was everything. I believed they were the perfect couple. The concept was like an empty canvas I could paint. I was filled with hope; I was excited. And over the course of ten years, I followed the two lovers that I considered to be soul mates. I felt totally in touch. But after their relationship ended, it floored me. For a decade Pitt and Jolie have been depicted as Hollywood's golden couple. The premise is almost commercial, like whitewash or sweeteners. Today's lingo regarding Hollywood's famed love mates is wrong. The mania we direct towards these celebrities is off the screen and bigger than life. We make believe they share our pain, values, and hopes. Their characters become our heroes, and their words our mantras. As we watch Brad and Angelina sift through a slaughterhouse of hype, it's easy to get lost in our assumptions. You think. 'I understand them; I know what they're going through.'

Huffington Post - 6 months
Now that the world has seen Orlando Bloom’s manhood, Miranda Kerr has finally spoken about the infamous nude photos.  During an interview on Australian radio program “The Kyle and Jackie O Show,” the model, who was married to Bloom from 2010 to 2013, revealed that her ex gave her a heads up about the pics.  “Oh, my God ― he texted me and he was like, ‘Um, I’m really embarrassed. Some photos are coming out. Just thought I should let you know,’” Kerr, 33, said. The photos of Bloom surfaced online earlier this month while he was vacationing with his new girlfriend, Katy Perry. As a result, the internet went nuts.  “I was like, ‘Hmm ... right, what were you thinking? Seriously, what were you thinking?’” she said of her response, before jokingly adding that she would send Bloom one of her new Bonds swimsuits for future outings.  You can listen to the interview below (it starts around 1:05). -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington ...

The year was 2014. The setting was Ibiza, Spain. The culprits were Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber.

I'm not religious, I'm spiritual. And praying is something my grandmother taught me as well. To pray and be grateful, have gratitude, is a big thing for me." She later told Into The Gloss: I like to pray and I like to meditate. Doing just three minutes of prayer and a minimum of five minutes meditation twice a day sets the tone—like an arrow so that you're hitting your target. When I pray I always thank Mother Nature for all the beauty in the world; it's about having an attitude of gratitude. And then I pray to Christ to say, 'Thank you for this day and my family and my health,' and now that I'm older I've added, 'Please illuminate me. Please open my heart chakra. Open my aperture and uplift my consciousness so that I can be the best version of myself.'

Her family moved to Brisbane to allow Kerr and her brother to experience city life. She graduated from All Hallows' School in 2000. Kerr studied nutrition and health psychology before pursuing modelling.
