You just have to try to live in the moment.”  “I’m not good, but I’m working on it,” she adds. “You just have to let it go and not be hard on yourself.”   Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk Share a PDA-Filled Vacation  At the same time, Shayk wants women to realize what you see online is not always what you get.  “I feel like with Instagram and stuff, you always feel like you see a perfect picture,” she says. “For me, I almost always post a picture of my work.
