Once Upon a Time

An ethereal crown of rubies, jewels, and diamonds sat atop the princess’s head. Her romantic, pouf shouldered dress complete with a form fitting corset and tulle skirt adorned her frame like a dream. The silk slippers she wore on her feet glittered in the sun as she made her to the magic well. She peered into the clear, deep waters and wished with all her might that her prince would soon come to carry her away on a majestic, white horse bridled with golden reigns; the two would ride off into the romantic sunset, gazing into each others eyes with a love so perfect there were no words, living happily ever after…


Being a princess is a dream every girl can relate to. Back to the time before our age required two digits, a plastic crown and a faux diamond ring was all we needed to feel special. Whether it was a favorite fairytale, the story lines we created for our dolls, or the magic wand and ruby, plastic heels we insisted on donning everywhere; being a vision of flawless royalty was inarguably the best part of being a young girl.


Now that we have traded perfect princes for Levi laden lads and stunning white stallions for automatic Audis, it seems as though the magic has been lost when in reality, one should feel like a princess every day! Transport back to the time where glitter and diamond shaped stickers were the only makeup we needed and tulle skirts were better than a pair of trousers any day. After all, life is what you make it, wouldn’t it be so much more fun to make it a fairytale?
