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…

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.…

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…

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…

Sparkle #200: Colorful Buildings I Want To Visit

Color always makes me happy!  I go crazy with the camera when I spot a multicolored building during my travels. There are many wonderfully constructed, artistic, multi-hued buildings around the world – a testament to the amazing talent of creative artists everywhere. For today’s post, I thought I would share pictures of 30 odd colorful buildings which really caught my attention while browsing the web. You will be delighted and mesmerized by the gorgeous colors, beautiful designs and the interesting ideas which led to the creation of these masterpieces. Each building has a story behind how it came to be – some were built with the concept of color and art…
