Happy Samhain/ Halloween!!!

img_4631Tomorrow is a day for celebration. It’s the Pagan New Year, and just an all out fun ass day!

Halloween has been my favorite holiday since I was a child. With my birthday on the 29th, dressing up, and free candy, it’s hard not to absolutely adore!

Things to remember/ ways to celebrate Samhain:

  • Take a moment to remember the deceased in your family. The air between the dead and the living is thinnest on this day, so meditate and try to connect with those you love and miss.
  • Gather Autumnal findings and create an alter dedicated to this gorgeous day!
  • Use divination (tarot, pendulums, runes, etc.) for guidance on the year to come.
  • Reflect on the past year and celebrate yourself for progress. Even if the year way tough, you made it through! So celebrate 🙂
  • Dress up and get wicked!
  • Watch scary movies, or one’s about witches. The Craft is my personal favorite 🙂

However you choose to celebrate, do it safely and with intention. I adore you all, Happy Halloween, and stay witchy ( *)

 

Taking Vacations

Hello witches! This week I am on V A C A T I O N *****

My little sister graduated so we went to watch her walk the stage in Northern California, have road-tripped down to Vegas (where I am currently) and will be heading back to my home town of little old Los Angeles on Wednesday for a few days.

Currently, I am embracing the Nine of Pentacles by enjoying the fruits of my labor. I have been working my buns off and now it is time to enjoy some fun in the sun 🙂

The Three of Cups is all about celebration and community, and being around my family has all of my wishes fulfilled. It’s hard to live so far away from them, but it makes the time we have together so much more special.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer. Stay witchy ( *) !!

Welcome to the December installment of WitchCrafts! Because I am abroad, this tutorial is super easy, but that is also good news for you!

On my birthday in October, I made a bunch of drinks for my guests, including a super sparkly witches brew featuring the liqueur Viniq.


I wasn’t too impressed with the sweetness of the liqueur, so I went online to try to figure out how to make my own sparkly version for Christmas and New Years.

Well, it turns out you can buy pearl luster dust on Amazon and just use it in anything you want.


It’s literally so easy and you feel like a fairy princess.

So since a Christmas tradition of ours is to drink mimosas while we open presents, we got up somewhat early to go and find Prosecco and orange juice. Well, not realizing that this is Rome and Christmas is an incredibly important holiday, we came to find that every shop was closed. Seriously. Every single one.

Walking back to our Air BnB feeling a little disappointed, my sister had us turn down a small street that took us the easiest route back.

Well lo and behold, the only shop in miles that was open was on this block, and we were able to get Frizzante and a grapefruit to make makeshift- almost-mimosas to drink while we opened our presents! Then we dumped some luster dust in these bad bitches and let the festive feeling commence.


The most important part of this morning was being together and keeping a tradition alive. And we got a little Christmas miracle to help make this happen.

Happy Holidays witchies!  ( *)
