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!

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…

Looking for Bright Spots in 2020!

Hello there and I do hope you are staying safe and (if it is possible for you) staying in.

Sparkle #202: Count your Blessings!

Hello happy, shiny folks! How has November been for you so far? I cannot believe 2016 is coming to a close, this year seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye! As the Thanksgiving weekend dawns upon us, I cannot help but feel reflective and grateful for the past year. There are always two sides to any situation, and happy people tend to look on the bright side. 2016 has been a rocky ride for sure, but today when I look back, I only want to count my blessings and forget the rest. So instead of feeling sad that I didn’t…
