Sparkle #163: Travel with the Holiday Magazine

I recently came across some illustrated covers for the Holiday Magazine, and was curious to know more about their content and readership. The Holiday Magazine was first published in the US between 1946 – 1977, and it introduced a new and exciting glamour and lifestyle travel format for it’s readers. What set the magazine apart from it’s contemporaries was it’s strong aesthetic sense, a fun and creative layout, stellar photography and brilliant writing. An art house in Paris relaunched the magazine in 2014. They started with the essence of the first version, but also added trends from the current century to make it more…

Sparkle #159: Illustrated Travel Calendars

For me, 2015 was full of travel – both big and small. There is not a single thing I would change about any of my trips, except for wishing that they continue in 2016 and beyond! Discovering new places, people and cultures is fascinating as well as enriching. It nourishes the soul, opens your mind and puts a big picture perspective on everything. If like me, you are also bitten by the wanderlust bug, then you would have started thinking about your travel wishlist for 2016. If you need some inspiration or just want to ensure you stay on track with your plans for the next year, then check…

Sparkle #139: Minimalist Travel Tattoos

I don’t think I will ever get a tattoo – it seems too permanent! What if I don’t like what I got a couple of years down the line? I also have super sensitive skin with a low pain threshold, so the idea of getting a tattoo is not too appealing. But whenever I come across an interesting tattoo on someone else, I do get swayed by the idea for a bit. Like when I saw these charming minimalist travel tattoos below, I wanted to get one for myself too! I particularly like #8 and #10, which one do you like best? (Image Credits: Image 1,…

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…
