Examples of sparkly in a Sentence

  1. Pam Dawber:

    Somehow he had that magic. If you put it on paper you would be appalled, but somehow he had this guileless little thing that he would do – those sparkly eyes. He’d look at you, really playful, like a puppy, all of a sudden. And then he’d grab your t--s and then run away. And somehow he could get away with it. It was the '70s, after all.

  2. Kristen Bell:

    My immediate reaction is always to answer with words like' strong' and' brave' and' powerful,' but if I'm being honest, to me, being a woman is not about being brave or being strong or being powerful. It's not about being anything specific, it's just about giving yourself permission to be the things that you already are, which seems very easy, but it is not. Because women have been conditioned to fit into boxes ; usually tiny, pretty, sparkly boxes with bows on the them.

  5. Pippa Middleton:

    Ironically, family friends of the Middletons say that everyone always thought that the sparkly Pippa rather than the quieter and less glossy Kate would be the one most likely to make a spectacular marriage.
