The Hallotober Tag 2020

Ooh, the Hallotober Tag! This is right up my street! There's nothing better than a Halloween themed post, is there? Thank you to Anne at Rooting Branches for tagging me!

Wicca is a Journey

 As I was writing my Samhain post, I kind of realised that my Wicca/Wheel of the Year posts barely even scratch the surface of the history and the meanings behind the Sabbats. I did have a little wobble, and worried that other witches may read my post and think "ugh, what a poser!" However, there is a reason behind the way I've written my posts.

October, I'm in Love

October is my absolute favourite month of the year. Not just because it's my birthday month, but it helps! There's just something about October that makes me happy.

Samhain & Ways to Celebrate

Ooh I haven't written one of these for a while! Oops! Seems only fitting that I start again with Samhain. Samhain is known as the witch's New Year. The Wheel of the Year has turned full circle and it's time to celebrate! We celebrate everything we have achieved this year, and we get to celebrate with our ancestors. Everyone knows the veil to the other world lifts at Halloween!

Diary Entry #8

A few weeks ago I decided to get us all out on our bikes for a quick evening ride. Josh had bought Charlie a balance bike, as the scooter was a no-go and he doesn't pedal his trike! I fancied attempting another go on my bike so off we went.

5 Tips for Better Sleep with Kalms | AD

I have been struggling to sleep lately. Honestly, I have always struggled to sleep. I am a chronic night owl and it's very rare for me to get to sleep at a reasonable time. But then if I do sleep early/well, I struggle to get to sleep the following night. It's a seemingly never-ending cycle. I've also noticed that the more stressed I am, the harder it is for me to sleep.

In fact, after about a week of stress-induced sleepless nights, I decided to get some Kalms Nights.  I have used Kalms Days in previous years, whenever I was feeling stressed, or anxious and they helped so much. Myself and my Mum prefer more "natural/traditional" medicines where we can, and we are huge fans of the Kalms range.

A Good Girls Guide to Murder | Book Review

"Real men wear floral when trespassing."

A Good Girls Guide to Murder was actually bought for me during early lockdown, and I can't believe it's taken me this long to pick it up! I decided to take this book on holiday with me. I wasn't sure how much time I was actually going to get to read but I figured it was worth a try.

I managed to squeeze in a chapter before bed on the first night, and although I wasn't "hooked" on it, I was definitely intrigued by it! I didn't reread the synopsis before starting it, so I couldn't really remember what to expect.

My October TBR

I only read one book throughout the whole of September and it's really made me want to read more this month! I have selected three books to attempt to get through throughout October, and I'm really excited for one of them in particular.

Hello October!

It's my birthday month! I turn 25 this October, how terrifying is that?! Where on earth has my life gone, and where the hell is it going?!

I'm starting the month fresh, I insisted on having a decluttering session last Sunday, so I'm now a few bags lighter of stuff. It's amazing how much better you feel after a good declutter and shift around. There's still plenty to sort out though, so maybe I can get another one in before my birthday!
