So basically, I wanted to really surprise Seán with his gift, and hear him yell ‘Toriko’, so I was like ‘oh I’ll ask him to close his eyes, yell Trico, and then ask him to open his eyes, and like BOOM! Trico.’ As soon as I asked him the words ‘close your eyes’, I knew it sounded really creepy (fuck), but he humoured me, and it was lots of fun. I’m really happy he likes it! 

This is that moment:


I hope derka-derk is happy in Ireland with @therealjacksepticeye!

(also I’m almost 27 so it’s fine that he called me a girl, you think I’m an adult yet, hell no)


(and can I just say that I love that Seán’s voice for Trico in the unboxing video is the same voice Felix gives Edgar his pug, LOL)

🌿Lammas Activities🌿

Lammas (also called Lughnasadh) is a sabbat from the Wheel of the Year that is celebrated on August 1st to mark the beginning of the harvest season

🌿 Bake! Cooking and sharing food is a great activity for any sabbat, and cooking bread, desserts, meat, and enjoying fruits and vegetables is a great way to celebrate Lammas!
🌿 Enjoy nature! Fall is coming next, so enjoy the fresh air while you can. Invite friends and family on a nature walk or picnic or you can go yourself and embrace the beauty that nature has to offer! Visit a lake, a park, go on a trail, or whatever you want to connect with nature!
🌿 Take care your plants! This is the beginning of the harvest season. Take extra care of your plants and maybe even give them a treat: new soil, a new pot, fresh water, or fertilizer. If it’s time to harvest some fruits or veggies, do so! 
🌿 Decorate your altar and/or home! Colors, plants, grains, wreaths, animal prints, and candles are some great ways to decorate your home and/or altar for Lammas!
🌿 Do some crafts! Making crafts is a great way to have fun on Lammas, especially if you’re celebrating with kids! Making corn dolls and corn wheels are a few of the many fun ways to celebrate! Plus, when spring rolls around, you can bury the corn doll or corn wheel in a new garden to help your plants grow.
🌿 Prosperity magic! Lammas is the ideal time to perform prosperity magic, so if you have any prosperity spells hidden in your grimoire or book of shadows, take those out and work some magic!
🌿 Work on your book of shadows or grimoire! A relaxing way to end the day would be to write a few pages in your book, whether you write in spells, information, or a journal entry.
🌿 Finish some projects! If you have some projects nearing an end, Lammas would be a great time to finish those or to make more progress if you can! Not every goal needs to be achieved, but dedicating your time and effort to finishing a few would be a great Lammas activity.
🌿 Make a bonfire! Invite friends and family to a bonfire! While you sit around the fire, share some of your bad or unnecessary habits and how you plan to change or get rid of those habits so you can have renewed strength. If you’re a secret witch, you can just light a candle in your room and privately journal your reflection!

Full Moon Attraction Spell Day 3: Worry Dolls

Listen we’re just going to skip day 2 because really all I did was drink @jennycalabro​‘s self love rose soy milk tea and do various gushy tarot spreads. Day 3 was really fun though! 

These are Worry Dolls (Muñeca quitapena) that my mother gave me: 

They’re about the size of my thumb nail, made of string, twigs, and paper, and the way they work is simple: you tell them your worries, and place them under your pillow. They’re supposed to take away that worry or fear during the night, so you can sleep soundly. They’re mostly for children, but I’m using them a bit differently here. Almost as poppets! 

Here’s what you do: 

Take two of the worry dolls, one that represents you and one that represents a partner. It doesn’t have to be a specific person, but if you have someone in mind, even better! Hold them both in your hand and whisper to them any fears, worries, or insecurities you have about relationships, love, intimacy, trust, vulnerability, etc. Really think about what personal blocks are keeping you from feeling like you can find the right person and be happy with them, or keeping you from being with someone you have found. What scares you about love? 

Then, tie the two worry dolls together like so: 

 Imagine that they are you and a partner, happy and free of those fears. 

Next, place them inside a jar, baggy, cup or bowl like so (I used a jar because God I love jars) : 

Then fill your container of choice, covering the worry dolls as much as possible, with: 
- rose petals 
- cinnamon 
- brown sugar 


Under these ingredients, the worry dolls lovingly work together to banish the fears and worries you told them about. When finished, it looked like this: 

Hang or place the container next to your bed, and let them do their thing! :)

I’ve been playing Dream Daddy, a dating game where you play as a dad trying to romance other dads. It’s not perfect, but it’s incredibly sweet and heartfelt, and it’s something I really like. Of course, I was itching to make dolls of the characters so here’s Amanda Ann, the main character’s daughter.

My base doll is the Fashionistas Style so Sweet doll, which happened to use ALL the parts I wanted for Amanda which was a petite body, a Mbili sculpt head and in the Tropic Tan skin tone. Her hair was slightly too dark, but I’m super lazy and it’s close enough for my tastes.

Surprisingly I already had matching hair for her bangs via my Endless Hair Kingdom doll, so I plugged in a thick row and styled it. I was gonna cut her ponytail shorter but the hair sticks up so I gotta make concessions with the medium.

Her bomber jacket is actually from an Action Figure female and I got this jacket over a decade ago so I’ve always held onto it cuz it means a lot to me but I never found the right doll. It’s fully lined with a working zipper so it looks a tad bulky, but it’s the closest item I have without making it myself. She’s wearing a thrifted tank top I painted over and MTM leggings cuz none of the jeans I had looked right. And her choker is from a Fashion Fever doll lol.

She’s not perfect by any means, but I’m really digging how well she came together considering it takes me months to even get a vaguely correct looking outfit together.
