Being born with a huge passion for dancing and singing in my blood, I've never stopped myself from getting up to the stage to perform whenever I have a chance. My first singing performance was when I was at six years old. My mom bought me a very expensive sequin dress just for that occasion. She wanted me to be the star of the night. Since then, I've become addicted to everything sparkling: the LED light, the sequin balls, and the shiny dance costumes. I'm so obsessed with the kaleidoscopic crystals that I even used nearly 3000 pieces of Swarovski crystals to decorate my dance costume. I filmed the entire process in this video "How to make a dance costume from a simple leotard" in case you want to watch. I know; it sounds insane, but the amount of happiness that the glittery costume brings to me every time I look at it, it's worth it. 

Fast forward 20 years later, a small little girl has now become a big girl in a small world. She still loves dancing, but hardly has the opportunities to perform like she used to. She has a bigger stage to play with now: the stage of life. But, no matter how old she gets, her love for all the glittery, shiny things and her passion will always remain the same. 

If life doesn't give you a stage to perform, create one for yourself. Just like how I stayed at home on Saturday night, set up the gold glitter curtain as the backdrop, and used the camera self-timer to finish this photo shoot of my outfit by myself at 2am.

 The hall way instantly became a runway, and I felt like I was center stage in my neon sleeves cropped top, ruffle skirt and bad-ass gladiator booties.
