Definition of a Diva?

A woman who takes pride in her daily existence and an avid pursuit for perfection in everything she does. This diva often longs to think of herself as strong, passionate, unfaltering, together and invincible. Beauty, inner and outer confidence and the ability to do it all, whether it’s being a full time working woman or a stay-at-home mom.

this is real diva life
