Sparkle #143: A Not So Scary Halloween Party

Love Halloween but don’t like to celebrate it the scary or spooky way? Then head over to Disney for Mickey’s ‘not-so-scary’ Halloween Party! Every year, the famous theme park in Florida, Orlando holds a Halloween festival during the months of September and October which includes special events, themed decor, fireworks, parades and plenty of fun opportunities to trick or treat! Anything associated with Disney can hardly be scary, and this event is no different. Since the theme park caters to family audiences, the Halloween events are more focused on fun and games and less inclined towards scary activities. The event is ticketed and…

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 #123: Last few days at the Beach

Summer is quickly making way for fall, and while I cannot wait for the air to get cooler and the days to get shorter, I will definitely miss one thing about summer – the lovely, lazy, long days spent at the beach! The world is filled with beaches – some beautiful, some exotic and some rather unusual. The following 6 unique beaches have been on top of my travel list for a while now. There are plenty of beautiful beaches to explore, and if you click on the links at the end of the post, you will be taken to guides which list out some other spectacular…

Sparkle #119: Chocolate Around the World

Would you travel for Chocolate? I know I would! Science says chocolate is a definite happiness booster, and I couldn’t agree more! It easily fits in with most menus or cuisines, is available in a variety of forms and flavors and often tops the list of comforting, indulgent and stress busting foods. There are plenty of shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants across the world which celebrate chocolate in all it’s glory. Whatever your next destination, be sure to look up ‘chocolate’ and I am sure you will find at least one novel chocolate cafe in that place which you would want to try during your trip. These chocolate shops across…
