Christmas Tree for the Year 2015

2015 has been one crazy year! It has been full of both highs and lows, warm surprises, much awaited trips and some wonderful new beginnings. Of course, the most special thing about 2015 has been my blog – I am so glad I finally took out time to start this sparkly space. To celebrate all the madness which was 2015, I decided to decorate this year’s tree with a bunch of whimsical ornaments. Last year, I had a gold and white themed tree, but this year I wanted to use lots of curios to make a big, bright and multi colored tree. I also wanted to add one quirky element to the…

Secret Santa Fun!

Secret Santa at work is always so much fun! I have a wonderful time thinking up surprises and gifts for my co-workers. I love decorating their desk, bringing goodies and planning what to get them for Christmas. This year, I was a little stumped because I had to play Secret Santa for a boy! It’s easier when it’s a girl, you just need to put up ornaments and lights and it will make her happy. But for a boy, I wasn’t sure what sort of decor or surprise would bring a smile to his face. Thankfully with a little help from his…

Sparkle #167: Winter Wonderland in London

London lights up like magic during December, it seems the city brings out it’s best for Christmas. One of my favorite attractions in London during this time is Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park – a Christmas fair which is open during the months of November to January. Winter Wonderland is a spectacular themed destination which opens up for the public every year in London. The best part is that entry to the wonderland is absolutely free, you only have to pay for the attractions or rides you choose to indulge in. Apart from all the rides, they also have a bunch of themed cafes, restaurants, Christmas markets, street…

Sparkle #166: Vintage Holiday Cards

Happy Monday folks! It’s almost Christmas, and I cannot wait until the holiday season officially kicks in sometime next week. With less than 10 days to go for Christmas, I have been obsessed with finding the perfect holiday cards which I can share with my loved ones. I think I am strongly leaning towards vintage themed holiday cards this season. Just browsing through some of these cards makes me feel so warm and happy inside. They remind me of a simpler, nicer time and a Christmas spent with family, friends, love and gratitude. These vintage cards reinforce the values of the holiday, and help us focus on all the wonderful…
