While the world has succumbed to many hardships in recent months, there is plenty we can do on a personal level to boost our appreciation for the beautiful world around us. Here are 5 ways you can be more mindful, happy, and fulfilled this June.
Spring is a season swathed in myth and legend, from the earliest years of human existence, stories have been told to narrativize the earth’s natural cycle of life. Spring first stirs in March and stretches into late June. The sun’s rays open sealed flower buds and draw blossom from bare tree branches. From lambs to chicks, all manner of small creatures are born into a world waking up.
Easter is coming and chocolate eggs are definitely the most classic present we give each other on this occasion. A crunchy and gluttonous shell that encloses an unexpected surprise! So why not personalize the surprise with a precious gift for a loved one?
Between the end of March and the beginning of April, cherry blossoming reaches its peak. It is a breathtaking sight: hundreds of trees bloom together, wearing themselves with a cloud of pale corollas. An ethereal veil of rare beauty destined to last only for a few days and then fall to the ground in a lovely pinkish-white rain.
Every year I can't wait to take the winter greyness off my back by wearing something shiny and colorful. And shop windows become full of temptation when you're hungry for color. Why not take a look at the fashion trend of the new season and find out what will look best on you? I've already peeked and there's something for everyone! A little spoiler? Orange will rule in all its shades!
Red, yellow, orange, pink, green, blue, purple! The arrival of spring is celebrated in India with one of the most scenic and cheerful festivals in the world. It’s Holi, the Festival of Colors, Spring and Love. This event is so loved that is spreading over the world year after year!
It embodies the desire to do and to live, to go out and see friends, to meet the people you care for and to celebrate love! It is the fresh energy of new beginnings, the joyful enthusiasm of youth, the beauty of white clothes that are dyed with all the colors of a crazy and happy carnival.
