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.

Sparkle #193: Business Advice from TV Shows

Happy Monday folks! I looked at the calendar today and realized it’s almost June – the middle of the year. I cannot believe the pace at which this year is moving. I feel like I am always playing catch-up with both my personal and professional to-do list. There’s always so much to be done, and so little time… Thinking about life, time and my lengthy list of things to do always brings my spirits down. So to cheer up my Monday, I thought of seeking advice from some of my favorite people in the world – TV show characters! A while back, I wrote a post…

Sparkle #163: Travel with the Holiday Magazine

I recently came across some illustrated covers for the Holiday Magazine, and was curious to know more about their content and readership. The Holiday Magazine was first published in the US between 1946 – 1977, and it introduced a new and exciting glamour and lifestyle travel format for it’s readers.
