  1. You look lovely :) Btw, I can't imagine spending Christmas in summer weather (I am very used to central/eastern european climate, christmas trees in snow etc.), but I would love to go to a very warm place to spend the New Year's Eve there :)
    P.S: I saw you were reading the Complete Idiot's Guide to Wicca. I am completely new to the subject and I have plenty of books about it, but I don't know where to start anyway ;/ The more materials I gather, the less I know ;/ Any suggestions/titles you would recommend?

    1. I am very happy with the 'idiots' guide as a simple, easy to understand source. Definitely recommend. I also found The Enchanted Parlour video channel on YouTube really good. It can be confusing, there seem to be many styles and you have to find what ones work for you. I copy down what I think fits my style. Sometimes reading the basics then writing or saying your own spells work. Just remember the 13 rules and the Rede ( in the idiots guide or online) about doing what is spiritually good for you and not harming or controlling others. ( not that i think you would). Cassandra Eason also has so many books on different topics so you could choose one that suits you: faeries, night magic, etc. I also find positive oracle cards like Doreen Virtue's Goddess Guidance Catds inspiring. Hope this helps! :) i am stll just a learner too!

  2. Those fries! :-O
    I agree with you on Magic in the Moonlight's visual delights. Aunt Vanessa's home and garden were to die for.

  5. How do you like the Language of Flowers? I had to read an early draft when I applied at an agency and said the book "needed to cut the gratuitous breastfeeding scenes." I didn't get the job.

    1. The age difference was a bit iffy, but in the end you have to just enjoy movies for what they are, and it was funny and had wonderful sets!
