Sparkle #196: Creative Room Decor Ideas – Part 1

See Part 2 of this post here.  Hello everyone, how has your week been? Mine’s been crazy as always, and I am so excited the weekend is just around the corner. This weekend, I will be spending some time shopping online and offline for my lovely new room! If you have been following my blog, you would remember that around two months ago, I wrote an emotional post on how I am tearing down my work-space to build a new one. The good news is that work on the room is now complete, the carpenter and painter have done justice to the pictures…

Sparkle #195: Last Minute Father’s Day Ideas

Hello folks, how is June coming along for everyone? I am sure most of you are mad at me for not posting as often as I used to. But the last couple of weeks have been a little crazy for me and my family. My sister took ill, then I had to undergo a painful and long wisdom tooth extraction and now my brother is facing wisdom teeth issues of his own – definitely not party times for our family! Am not so sure about the wisdom, but these teeth are definitely bringing a lot of pain along with them. Here are some hilarious illustrations on how…

Sparkle #194: R.M. Drake and his Beautiful Poetry

If you are active on social media, then I am sure you must have stumbled upon the poetic brilliance of R.M. Drake. He is a literary success story from the digital age, as his works were first published and discovered on Instagram! Drake first started posting excerpts from his work on Instagram as an experiment, not realizing that they would go viral overnight. He soon acquired a massive fan following which included popular celebrities like the Kardashians and Ludacris. All of this led him to a global distribution deal which allowed him to sell his self-published works through top booksellers like Amazon. A compilation of his best poems and…

Sparkle #192: Incredible India!

India – the land of multiple sights, sounds and experiences. A country which belongs to both the rich and the poor, the old and the young alike. This is the same place where you will find something as enchanting as the Taj Mahal, and something as depressing as the polluted river Yamuna. People here can be extremely helpful and friendly, or they can be really good con artists who will not shy away from making an extra buck off a gullible tourist. Brimming with diverse but complementary cultures, India can be loud, exaggerated and overwhelming for anyone. But once you spend some time here, it becomes easy to spot a method to it’s madness,…
