    Model and fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs hasn't had it easy these past few months. On Dec. 3, she was in a horrific plane propeller accident and lost her left arm and eventually her left eye.

    But as E! News' Giuliana Rancic said, Lauren's strength in the face of adversity has already made her "an inspiration" to so many. We continue to wish her well.
