Dalgona Coffee For The Win

Hello everyone, are you excited to see what I am covering for the letter D in my lockdown alphabet series? This one should be easy to guess as it is probably the first lockdown trend that hit us in the year and most likely features on everybody’s list! If you guessed Dalgona Coffee, you are right!  Love it or hate it, you just cannot ignore Dalgona Coffee. This was one of the first trends that went viral on social media. And probably also the trend which became most infamous in India, as people across the country pointed out that this…

Baking Banana Bread in Lockdown

Hi there, and hope you are having a great week! I am continuing with my lockdown alphabet series posts and this week I am covering the letter B for “Baking” and “Banana Bread”!  So tell me honestly, did you bake banana bread or anything else during the lockdown? I am not much of a baker (or cook!) but my mother and sister have had a ball baking goodies for us in the kitchen through this entire lockdown period! What started with banana bread, cakes, brownies, and other sugary treats quickly transitioned to more serious experiments around garlic bread, pizza and…

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 #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 #184: Easter Traditions for a Fun Holiday

The last week of March is such a fabulous week. The weather starts clearing up, spring is round the corner and all around the world people are celebrating fun festivals like Holi or Easter! I read somewhere that Easter is a chocolate filled holiday. That, and the fact that it usually falls on a Sunday makes it such a happy festival to celebrate! There are so many Easter traditions out there – some which focus on the meaning of the day and others which are purely there for fun! I picked three of my favorite Easter traditions which you can start…
