February is here, the perfect month to look at everything with rose tinted glasses. Thanks to valentines day, there’s a whole lot of love in the air and I can’t help but smile at all the mushiness. While we are on the topic of love, let’s take a moment and talk about self love and how it is the key to living a happier life. Being totally and completely in love with yourself is essential to having healthier relationships.

Sparkle #154: Thanksgiving Wishes & Quotes

Happy Monday folks! November is coming to an end, and this week is perhaps one of the most blessed weeks of the year. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because it focuses on two very important aspects of our life – family and gratitude. Each year, the Thanksgiving week brings with it a whole lot of abundance and happiness. It is a time to focus on the gifts we have, a time to be thankful for our blessings, and a time to make these blessings count in our lives.

Trip of a Lifetime: Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh: Part 1

Hello wonderful people and happy Sunday! I woke up feeling real good this morning. It could be because it’s Sunday, or because we have amazing (rainy) weather, or simply because today is the anniversary of my maiden trip to Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh in 2013. If I call Paris my teenage crush, then Kashmir is definitely my first love! I undoubtedly have the travel bug, I fall in love with places in an instant. I was 8 years old when I first discovered the beauty of Kashmir while participating in an art project. It was on my travel list for a long time before I finally got the chance to…
