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…

October and the cool fall breeze is making me happy-giddy! And I have got fun, family, food and festivals on my mind all of this month.

Sparkle #198: Fourth of July Sparkler Photography

The Fourth of July weekend is just round the corner, and if you have not planned a mini getaway, then chances are you are having a nice summer party at home! If you plan to spend your weekend chilling with family and friends, then it might be a good idea to look up game and food DIYs online. One super fun activity you can plan for the evening is “writing with sparklers”. Fireworks are a Fourth of July staple, and taking photographs when people are writing with sparklers is an engaging activity bound to interest both kids and adults. You have probably…

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…
