This week’s installment of “Real Beauty” is especially special because it comes directly from the winner of last year’s Girlfriend Getaway Sweepstakes. Check out what this real MyChelle fan had to say when she was asked to describe “real beauty”:

“Beauty is what we’re made of and it seeps out into our faces, personality and actions. Beauty is friends that are there for you even during the most unimaginable dark times in your life. Beauty is when you haven’t seen or talked to a friend in ages, and you pick right back up where you left off. Beauty is what I am graced by when I am in the presence of these incredible women.” ~ Kathie Bloom
