Sparkle #150: Buddhist Prayers for Peace

Happy Monday folks! We are soon going to enter the most wonderful time of the year, but my mind is still restless with the events of the last few days. How does one stay positive and peaceful during times of distress? I find that chanting really calms me down, and so for today’s post, I wanted to share some of my favorite chants and prayers with you, hoping they will help you find peace and positivism in the days to come.

Sparkle #114: Healthy Living Illustrations

Happy Monday lovelies! This week on the blog we are celebrating illustration art, which means I will be sharing some of my favorite illustrations from different categories with you through the week.

Illustration art accompanies some form of text and is used to provide a visual aid to whatever you are reading.

Sparkle #16: Yoga vs Pilates

Hello people, can you believe it is the last week of January already? Someone once told me, time flies when you are spending it well. I can say this is true for me right now – putting together all these posts on a daily basis does make me happy! So here’s to more sparkle and cheer in the coming days. Coming back to my Inspired Monday’s post, today I particularly felt the need for some fitness inspiration. Thanks to this rainy, cold and gloomy weather, I have been inconsistent with both my workout and diet this month. I hope to get back on track as the weather starts clearing…
