you've got a good idea going, here's a few suggestions-
First of, instead of saying "like the stars" you could use a metaphor- Talk about them as if they WERE stars.
Second, AVOID CLICHĖS. I can't stress that enough. I used to use them all the time when I first wrote, so don't be discouraged, but things like "Sparkled like the stars" are way overused.
Maybe think about obscure things that sparkle, or even what sparkles about her?
Open your mind, it doesn't have to make sense to ANYONE but you two, and on you're not supposed to tell the meaning on the surface.
