Love & Luck in 2019

Read my post title again. Sounds too generic? But in reality, I actually put a lot of thought into this. Read on to know how. Last week the world celebrated the Chinese New Year, and the coming week is when everyone will be busy with Valentine’s Day preparations (you can love it or hate it, but you can’t ignore it!). Given that I am just getting back to my writing routine, I missed the bus on writing a New Year’s post, and am delayed getting my annual Valentine’s post out (check out previous V-Day posts below). So I decided to…

Sparkle #204: Spring has Sprung!

Hello beautiful people, are you ready for spring? I know I am! Today is the Spring Equinox, which marks the beginning of spring across the world. Today is one of the only two days in the year when the day and night are equal in length and perfectly in balance! Coincidentally, today is also the International Day of Happiness and the start of the Persian New Year. Which in my mind is kind of perfect, because how can one feel anything but happy on a balmy spring day in March? I am always on the lookout for special rituals that one can create to…

All is Merry, All is Bright!

Hello lovely people, are you ready for the holidays? I know I am! 2016 has been one crazy year (I have a feeling I say that for every year), and I am glad it is coming to an end. This year just disappeared in front of my eyes! Stay tuned for my year end post to find out exactly what I was up to in these past 12 months, and then we can mutually decide if it was just busy or productive. 😉 I am so happy for December – I feel like it is one of the best months of the year. Things get…

Sparkle #202: Count your Blessings!

Hello happy, shiny folks! How has November been for you so far? I cannot believe 2016 is coming to a close, this year seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye! As the Thanksgiving weekend dawns upon us, I cannot help but feel reflective and grateful for the past year. There are always two sides to any situation, and happy people tend to look on the bright side. 2016 has been a rocky ride for sure, but today when I look back, I only want to count my blessings and forget the rest. So instead of feeling sad that I didn’t…

Sparkle #201: Bright Lights on my Mind!

October and the cool fall breeze is making me happy-giddy! And I have got fun, family, food and festivals on my mind all of this month. Since the festival of lights is just round the corner, I have been browsing a whole lot of decor and lighting ideas on Pinterest. I love bright lights, they are the easiest way to glam up your home for the holiday season. There are so many ways to add some sparkle and shine to your decor – candles, string lights, lamps, neon signs or just about anything else that twinkles! Below are 46 inspiring ideas to get you…
