Sparkle #171: Daily Inspiration Jar DIYs

January is a month for new promises, fresh starts and inspiration to be a better “you” in the new year. But as the months roll by and we get caught in the hustle and bustle of daily life, we forget these reminders / resolutions and quickly fall into our old habits which are so tough to break. So this month, while I am still feeling motivated for the year ahead, I decided to create some reminders which would help me stay grateful and inspired to make a positive start every day of the new year (and not just in January!). You must be wondering what I am talking about? Well…

Sparkle #165: Christmas Tree Decoration Themes

I like coming up with a theme for decorating my Christmas tree every year. It is no fun to pile on all the ornaments in a random fashion on the tree. A themed Christmas tree on the other hand is so much more interesting to put together. I feel it looks and photographs better too! Pinterest is my biggest source of inspiration for Christmas tree decor ideas. Some interesting themes which caught my eye recently are pictured below. Which one of these should I pick for decorating my tree this year? Vote for your favorite using comments below. (PS – I…
