Sparkle #205: Jazz It Up!

“If music be the food of love, play on.” ~ William Shakespeare Is there anyone on this planet who doesn’t identify with the power of music? Music is an art form which deeply touches your mind, heart and soul. Irrespective of genre and artist preferences, everybody has songs they turn to when they want to express a feeling, calm their minds or just relax and take a break! There are songs for memories both happy and sad, songs which can lift your spirits or put you in a thoughtful mood and songs which can describe your situation even when words fail. Music is a powerful medium that connects people and…

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 #84: Remembering Holly Golightly

I love Breakfast at Tiffany’s! And I absolutely adore Audrey Hepburn’s character in the movie. Hepburn gave us an extremely lovable heroine in Holly Golightly – young, spirited, naive and a tad bit eccentric. Her portrayal of  the flighty young New York socialite landed her an Academy Award nomination and is by far considered her most challenging and memorable role. The movie is also popular for it’s iconic fashion and style statements as well as some tremendously unforgettable dialogues which still seem fresh and relevant in our times. I am a huge fan of Holly’s (or rather Audrey’s) sophisticated style in the movie. Remember the over-sized sunglasses and red lips? So for today’s…

Wednesday Sparkle #76: Remembering Bloo!

Does anyone remember this animated TV series called ‘Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends‘? The show was launched by Cartoon Network in 2004 and ended its run in 2009. I remember watching back to back episodes of this series during that time. It was one of the most funny cartoons on air with endearing characters and crazy story lines! My favorite cartoon character from the show was the mischievous but lovable ‘Bloo’. Part of his charm lies in the fact that one can identify with his several real and believable characteristics. Bloo is clever, sarcastic, slightly narcissistic and full of energy. He is always up to…
