In the two months since her boyfriend Cory Monteith (Finn) passed away suddenly, Glee’s Lea Michele (Rachel) has been wearing her tiny silver “Cory” necklace almost everywhere she goes. We’ve seen it plenty of times in photos, and now, the memorial necklace has made another appearance.

On September 19, photographers caught up with Lea as the Glee star stepped out in Beverly Hills for a trip to the salon in preparation for the 2013 Emmys. Lea gave a huge grin as she stepped into a car after getting her hair done.

The 27-year-old wore sunglasses, a grey and blue plaid shirt, and her “Cory” necklace in that familiar spot around her neck close to her heart.

Though these past months have, we imagine, been horribly difficult for Lea, her Glee co-star Naya Rivera (Santana) recently said she “can’t believe how strong” Lea has been throughout everything.

The same morning as her salon photos were taken, Lea kept up her positive attitude by posting an encouraging message on Twitter. “Rise and shine,” she wrote, followed by a little sunshine emoji. Lea then linked to a photo that said, “Keep your head up. Keep your heart strong.”

Words to live by in any situation, but they ring particularly true in Lea’s current situation. We’re glad to see her staying so upbeat and positive throughout it all.
