Spirit of Equinox Magic Spell Candles

It's been a long time since I've done a witchy haul! I was hoping my next haul would be much bigger than this but unfortunately I had to prioritise. I had planned to buy myself a whole bunch of candles, cloth and maybe even some new tarot cards for my altar but this time, all I could buy was a few candles. So, lets have a look shall we?

Stocks & Shares | A Complete Beginners Guide

If you’re looking for a new way to make money - whether that’s to cover the rising costs of living or you’re considering an entire new career path, you may want to get involved with stocks and shares. This can be a daunting topic to branch into, with many of us finding ourselves thinking up images of Wall Street and stressed business people, it’s actually surprisingly accessible. My partner Josh even has some shares in Rolls Royce! Here are a few steps that can help you to get into the market.

Weekly Budget Recap | 5th-11th September

This is it now, time to get serious! Spending over £300 in three days shook me to my core and really made me want to get my act together more than ever before. I decided to move £1,000 into my savings account (not including it in my savings goal) and then I challenged myself to "live" on the £723.55 I had left in my current account for the rest of the month, obviously aiming to have the majority of it left.

This one is a little bit different as I've only done three days this time! I was going to do Friday-Friday but I think Monday-Sunday works much better. So this is just a short but shocking recap this time.

Mabon & How to Celebrate

Mabon is the autumn equinox! My favourite kind of equinox. This year Mabon starts on Wednesday 21st September and ends on Thursday September 29th. That's a lot of time to celebrate! Mabon is a celebration of balance. The days and nights are now equal again and it's time to give thanks for what the summer has brought us. It's also time to let go of anything you may be clinging on to.

Weekly Budget Recap | 26th August - 1st September

I started doing a weekly budget round up (for the most part) in July, and it really opened my eyes to how much I spend in a week! It really disgusted me to be honest, so hopefully I can control my spending better this month!

September Budget

So, I completely forgot to actually keep track of my spending last month - oops! All I know is that I paid my bills, paid for Charlie's school stuff for September and treated myself to new bras I needed desperately needed from Shein. My cash budgeting didn't go so great as I automatically used my card a few times. But the good news is I have some cash left over!

August Recap & September Goals

August has actually been such a great month for me! It begun with me being on a beautiful holiday in Devon, I've had tons of time to myself, I got a pay rise, I've been exercising more. I also started binge watching House again and I've been loving a regular dose of Hugh Laurie. Don't get me wrong, I've definitely still had some difficult moments this month, but overall - not too shabby!
