Introducing… Bloom: A Journal by BeautyBeyondBones Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that the scared, sick, hopeless little girl at inpatient would tell her story one day.

Taking Iceland by Storm

Hállo from Iceland! I have officially fallen in love… …With the Nordic way of life. I’m currently in the back seat of super nice SUV rental car, listening to the Hamilton soundtrack on blast, driving for five hours in landscape that is what I imagine the surface of the moon looks like. This particular topographyContinue reading Taking Iceland by Storm


When you’re reading this, I’m going to be going through security at the airport. Because… I’M GOING TO ICELAND!!  I know, I know. Iceland is like, the place that everyone and their brother has been going in the last year. It has literally exploded in touristy popularity. So yeah, I’m jumping on the Nordic bandwagon and hitting theContinue reading ICELAND BOUND

Retinas Burning — Eclipse 2K17

What did the moon bring to the beach on August 21? Sunblock hehehe So who saw the eclipse?? In true Caralyn fashion, I….didn’t. I waited until two hours before to realize that I had to have special glasses to safely look at it, and the low key hypochondriac in me freaked out that I for sureContinue reading Retinas Burning — Eclipse 2K17

I was asked by numerous readers to write about Saturday’s Charlottesville terrorism, and truthfully, I’m sick to my stomach thinking about the grosslyContinue reading Charlottesville Wake Up Call

And most nights, an unexpected celebrity comedian will swing by to “work out” a bit. Case in point, the last time my friend went, both Chris Rock and DaveContinue reading Tension at the Comedy Cellar

Dancing in Spanish Harlem

So yesterday was my birthday 🙂 And I’ll tell you what…if there’s one thing I took away from the day, aside from how special friends and loved ones are, it’s how infinitely beautiful and diverse the culture is in NYC. Indulge me for a moment. Yesterday was one of those days that literally goes on forever.Continue reading Dancing in Spanish Harlem

God vs. Aliens

I’ve been really puzzled by a recent theme here lately. No, not our culture’s questionable obsession with unicorns, or the fact that our White House is turning over faster than a round of tequila shots on Cinco de Mayo. I’m confused about society’s recent preoccupation with….aliens. And if you think that was out of leftContinue reading God vs. Aliens
