when you were just a star
someone hung every hope
they ever had from your limbs
so if you ever feel inferior
ever start to doubt
or brilliance just remember:
you have constellations lining
the cathedral walls of your chest
a moon for a heart, and the sunlight
pouring through your skin
you are a symphony of stardust
and you were born to shine.
– Tyler Kent White
Celestial Style. A dreamy mix of golden glitter and silver sparkles; shine brightly with angelic feathered wings. Moon and star embellished lace. Hair adorned with jewels shimmering under the moonlight.
This look is inspired by my recent trip to a little seaside town which I visit every summer. It was nighttime and I stepped out onto the balcony and looked up at breathtakingly beautiful sky above me. It was such a clear night and I had never seen so many stars, each one like a sparkling diamond sprawled across the dark velvet sky.
It reminded me that we so easily forget our connection to the cosmos. After all, we are all made of stardust. As poetic as it sounds, scientifically speaking every element on Earth (including us) was formed at the heart of a star. Next time you are gazing at the setting sun and the stars begin to glisten in the sky – remember to never give up on your dreams, because you were born to shine!
