Sparkle #188: The Magical World of Rune Guneriussen

I recently stumbled upon the surreal art of artist Rune Guneriussen and can’t take my eyes off his dreamy installations. Rune uses everyday objects to create stories in the natural landscape of his hometown, Norway. These complex and time consuming installations are painstakingly created by hand, and the end result is installation art which looks like a magical painting. What I really like about his creations is the balance between real life and fantasy. The locations and structure of his installations has a mystical feel to them, making you escape into a fairy tale of your own. But the use of common objects immediately brings you back to reality. His…

Color Me Crazy: Holi Happiness

Today is Holi – the festival of colors, love, laughter and merrymaking. The Holi festival marks the end of winter and is a great way to welcome spring. Holi is probably one of the most chilled out Indian festivals ever – all you are expected to do on the day is put color on your family and friends (kind of like paintball), eat, drink and just have fun! Holi is a celebration of love, friendship and happiness. The fun and frolic in the air, faces drenched in color, people soaking wet, music, dance and togetherness – I love everything about this festival! On…

Sparkle #176: Make your Monday Happy!

Happy Monday folks! I am not feeling very happy or excited this morning and could do with some sunshine to brighten things up. The year has started on a crazy note, a new job means lots of learning and hence most of my time is currently being consumed at the workplace. I admit that I have been neglecting the blog, my diet, my Yoga and I am also feeling guilty for not staying on track with my resolutions for the year. In short, my life is currently chaotic and chaos always makes me feel uneasy. I wanted to do a valentines post this week, but since I am…

Sparkle #174: Rose Quartz & Serenity Mood Board

Pantone recently released it’s colors for 2016, and I am delighted! Rose quartz and serenity make for a light and airy combination which can not only exist by itself, but also easily mix with other colors to create eye catching palettes. That sounds believable, doesn’t it? I mean, how can a dash of pink and blue not work at creating magic? This is probably the first time Pantone released two shades as their colors of the year. Their website states that the two colors together symbolize balance, compassion and relaxation – expressions very relevant to the times we are living in. While Marsala, their color for 2015, denoted energy and action, these colors call out for…

Sparkle #172: Inspirational Phone Wallpapers

Happy Monday folks! Are you charged up for the week ahead or are you still dealing with Monday morning blues? It’s still January, so you are probably motivated enough to stay on track with your resolutions for 2016. I just published mine and I know I am feeling inspired for the week ahead. But what do you do in a few weeks or months from now, when the initial enthusiasm dies and the monotony of daily life takes over? One simple way to ensure your motivation levels are high everyday is to have a creative phone wallpaper. I like to use inspirational quotes or phrases which resonate with my goals…
