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 #195: Last Minute Father’s Day Ideas

Hello folks, how is June coming along for everyone? I am sure most of you are mad at me for not posting as often as I used to. But the last couple of weeks have been a little crazy for me and my family. My sister took ill, then I had to undergo a painful and long wisdom tooth¬†extraction and now my brother is¬†facing wisdom teeth¬†issues of his own – definitely not party times for our¬†family! Am not so sure about the wisdom, but these teeth are definitely¬†bringing¬†a lot of pain along with them.¬†Here are some hilarious illustrations on how…

Happy Mother’s Day

All mother’s are special¬†for their children, but I feel mine is just out of this world fantastic! She is crazy talented, incredibly patient and unbelievably loving. I would give her full¬†credit for ensuring that¬†me¬†and my sister grew up to be¬†independent, strong and beautiful¬†women. Her dreams helped shape our destinies, without her support we probably wouldn’t be where we are today. We are all guilty of taking our moms for granted, not making¬†enough time for¬†them, hurting them¬†unintentionally amongst¬†several other things. But a mother’s love towards us is unconditional and never changes. Today on Mother’s Day I want to dedicate this post…

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…
