Sparkle #203: Hey 2017 – Let’s Do This!

Happy 2017 to all you happy, shiny people! There’s something about 2017 that’s got me all excited and optimistic – this year feels like it’s going to be magical. Or maybe this is just the hope that kicks in with the start of a new year talking. 365 days, 52 weeks and 12 splendid months which we can fill with fresh moments and new stories. So let’s go all out this year and make lots of magical memories. Every year in January, I do a post on new year resolutions (2015, 2016) or share printables (2015, 2016) which could help us plan better for the year ahead.…

Hello 2016!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2016 brings us many shiny, happy, bright and beautiful moments. I am grateful for 2015, it gave me some spectacular memories. Somehow, when I look back and reflect, I can only remember the things which went well, or the learning’s from what didn’t work out. So 2015 will always be special – for all the traveling, meeting kind strangers, spontaneous decisions, train rides, playing tourist in my own city, evenings out with friends, discovering Spotify and Zumba, re-discovering Yoga, for Google, for my old team (and the new one), participating in a leadership program, mixing cocktails, shooting a movie, juice cleanses and my blog! Time flew really quickly…

Diwali: A Time for Lights, Color, Sparkle & New Beginnings!

Hello my lovelies, are you excited about November? This month has started on a high and festive note for those in India as people across the country get together to celebrate the biggest festival of the year – Diwali. Diwali, also known as the “festival of lights”, is one of the most awaited festivals in the country. It is also the most auspicious, as it marks the beginning of a new calendar year. There are several mythological tales associated with Diwali, but the most popular one centers around the mythical King Rama. It marks the return of King Rama after his victory over the evil king Ravana and to welcome him back…

2015: My Year To Shine

2014 was a roller-coaster of an year. There were some superb highs – rich travel experiences, my experiments with photography, fun times at destination weddings and lots of new learning’s at work. The lows were lessons disguised as pain – forcing me to ponder about what I should focus on in the future. I also stuck to several of my resolutions -went paperless and got super organized (yay Evernote!), started financial planning/saving (which in turn funded my travels in 2014), de-cluttered my storage shelves and got clicked like crazy – I no longer feel I am not photogenic! This in turn makes me think,…
