She was a small town girl with big city desires
who worked tirelessly to obtain her goals.
Writing, snapping, shooting, and editing;
her days on were plenty, and her days off,
Sometimes she would let fear get in her way –
The fear of failing,
But she knew that each failure was not the end of her story,
but the start of something incredible.
Each day she awoke
knowing more and more about who she was
and where she was going.
And each day she knew,
though it wasn’t always easy,
that something amazing was about to happen
if only she believed in
She was an odd girl, but not the kind of odd you hear about through gossip in the school cafeteria.
She enjoyed the simple things in life, whether it was the way the streets shine after it rains,
or the way her cat comes to cuddle with her in the same place every single night,
or the ways she could always watch the seasons change in her family’s backyard garden.
She took notice of the things that most of her peers ignored, and in that she found her own solace.
Sometimes, she thought, it’s good to be a little odd.
Benefit's Bling Brow Kit ($25, available online and at select Ulta stores) is something that I have been wanting to try out for a while now, and I finally got the perfect chance to give it a go for New Year's Eve. Filled with 52 Swarovski Elements crystals in two different colors, there is definitely plenty of sparkle packed into this little box to go around.
As you can see, you can truly place the crystals anywhere you want. I chose to start out with a simple design over and under my brows, but you can also go all-out and place the gems right on top of your eyebrows for a truly bedazzled look. Have fun and experiment with all of the unique patterns you can make!
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking to up their beauty routine in a fun and unexpected way. After all, who doesn't love to shine?! I am already looking forward to donning these beauties at the next music festival or themed party/event that I attend.
How do you wear your Benefit Bling? Be sure to share your photos with me in the comments below or tag me in them on Instagram or Twitter!
Happy New Year, everyone!
Over winter break I decided to create a new blog for myself to truly plant my foot into the world of lifestyle & entertainment journalism & blogging! This way not only can I share my own published content (like I currently do on my Tumblr), but I can also create and share new content with all of you in a variety of formats and blog in a more organized fashion on a regular basis!
On this blog you will see posts on a variety of topics ranging from fashion inspiration to DIY projects, as well as a collection of my own published work and class media projects. I can't wait to grow and learn with you all through this format in 2015, and I hope to be able to do great things with this blog and brand in the near future!
Sea Foam and Diamonds is all about the crazy and unexpected combinations I enjoy in life, between my love for cityscapes and insane nightlife to my desire for free and blissfully relaxing bohemian getaways. No matter what your own personal style is or what your views on life are, I believe that we can all use a little balance in life between the amazing things nature has to offer us and the vitality and successes given to us through the concrete jungle. This is where country gal meets city chic. This is Sea Foam and Diamonds.
I can't wait to go on this journey with all of you this year! Have a FANTASTIC 2015!
