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…

Color Me Crazy: Holi Happiness

Today is Holi – the festival of colors, love, laughter and merrymaking. The Holi festival marks the end of winter and is a great way to welcome spring. Holi is probably one of the most chilled out Indian festivals ever – all you are expected to do on the day is put color on your family and friends (kind of like paintball), eat, drink and just have fun! Holi is a celebration of love, friendship and happiness. The fun and frolic in the air, faces drenched in color, people soaking wet, music, dance and togetherness – I love everything about this festival! On…

Sparkle #182: Rainbow Recipes for a Lucky Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day people! I hope the luck of the Irish blesses us all today and forever! I am a strong believer of living by intention, so the more you think about all the luck you already have in your life, the more you will have of it in the days to come. Today I feel blessed and lucky to have a great supportive family, a fantastic job at a company I love, and a healthy body which sportingly puts up with all challenges it is subjected to! What are the most lucky parts of your life? Take a moment to reflect and be thankful for them…

Happy Women’s Day Ladies!

Being a woman is a blessing which should be celebrated everyday, not just on 8 March! But since we got a day to ourselves, let’s take some time today and remember to: Be kind to ourselves and stop feeling guilty: we don’t have to have it all together all the time (although I know we love to). Take care of our health and happiness: strong, fit, healthy and happy women raise happy families. Take care of yourself first and the rest will follow. Stay strong and be brave: don’t be afraid to say no when required and don’t think twice before asking for what you deserve.…
