Baking Banana Bread in Lockdown

Hi there, and hope you are having a great week! I am continuing with my lockdown alphabet series posts and this week I am covering the letter B for “Baking” and “Banana Bread”!  So tell me honestly, did you bake banana bread or anything else during the lockdown? I am not much of a baker (or cook!) but my mother and sister have had a ball baking goodies for us in the kitchen through this entire lockdown period! What started with banana bread, cakes, brownies, and other sugary treats quickly transitioned to more serious experiments around garlic bread, pizza and…

The Best Work From Home Wear: Athleisure

Hello there and welcome to my first post in the lockdown alphabet series. As mentioned before, over the next couple of weeks, I will be doing a series of posts on all things that made me happy or optimistic during this lockdown. And to keep things fun, I am following an alphabetical order!  I am kicking this off with A for “Athleisure”, a clothing trend I am so grateful I rediscovered during this lockdown! And a trend that helps keep Work From Home (WFH) attire comfortable, yet stylish. How, you ask? Well let me explain.  What is Atheleisure?  Athelesiure is…

Sparkle #204: Spring has Sprung!

Hello beautiful people, are you ready for spring? I know I am! Today is the Spring Equinox, which marks the beginning of spring across the world. Today is one of the only two days in the year when the day and night are equal in length and perfectly in balance! Coincidentally, today is also the International Day of Happiness and the start of the Persian New Year. Which in my mind is kind of perfect, because how can one feel anything but happy on a balmy spring day in March? I am always on the lookout for special rituals that one can create to…
