Fall Decor at My Sister’s House in Virginia

I am very lucky to have two extremely creative sisters in my life. The elder one is the queen of innovative DIYs and decor while the younger one’s talent lies in baking goods of all kinds – from the healthy to the sinful. Somehow, winter and the festive season brings out the best in both of them. This weekend, my little sister made this amazing coffee cake which perfectly complimented my morning mocha. And my elder sister welcomed Fall and Halloween with quirky owl and pumpkin themed decor. My sister has really upped her DIY game over the past one year. What I love about her decor is that…

Sparkle #141: Clean Eating Cookie Recipe

This week is turning out to be one of those weeks when all you want is the weekend, FRIENDS re-runs on TV and chocolate! Actually, make that lots of chocolate! Any other day and I would have reached out for a decadent slice of chocolate cake. But I have been watching my diet for the last two weeks and don’t want to go off track by binge eating due to work stress. So I turned to the internet to look for healthy dessert recipes which would be delicious and easy to make, thus satisfying my craving for something sweet without adding any feelings of guilt. To my delight, I discovered…

Sparkle #135: Amazing Waffles at Virginia Beach

I have mentioned a couple of times how much I love fall and winter. I am also equally fond of spring! However, I don’t like the hot season much. But the one thing I do love about summer is the beach. If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that I had a fabulous beach vacation at Virginia Beach in May this year. It was the perfect weekend getaway with my wonderful sister, brother in law and amazing niece. My super smart niece has her own blog and she even wrote a post about our trip here! I know I have promised you…

Sparkle #134: Top Overnight Oatmeal Recipes

Update: I made the Mocha overnight oats recipe for my breakfast the day after this post and am so excited to tell you all that it tastes exactly like dessert! The tweaks I made – I added cold coffee (instant coffee powder and honey added to cold milk), dark chocolate powder, walnuts, chia seeds and flax seeds to my oats and let them stay overnight. I topped them with some dark chocolate chips in the morning and started my day with an indulgent yet healthy breakfast! They taste really good, and are super quick and easy to make. Definitely try this recipe when you can!   Happy Monday everyone! How has October started…

Sparkle #133: Starbucks Fall Frappuccino

Coffee is to fall what lemonade is to summer! And if that coffee is coming from Starbucks, I might just end up having more than one cup! I am a huge Starbucks fan girl, so I was super excited to discover this website – Starbucks Secret Menu online. This website features a collection of Starbucks recipes concocted by fans and coffee connoisseurs from around the world. This is not an official menu, but the recipes are so well thought through, that you might just mistake it for the real stuff! The recipe which caught my eye recently is the Starbucks Fall Mashup Frappuccino. A fantastic…
