You’re beautiful as you are. But it you’re like me, a sugar addict and a chronic comfort eater or just looking to get to a healthier weight and healthier body, here are some tips that are helping for me!
Enchant your water bottle! Encourage it not only to physically and mentally cleanse your body, but also to help give you strength to resist unhealthy food and instead crave all those lovely veggies and healthy alternatives.
Thank your deities or the universe for the food you eat, and ask them to help your body use it to the best of its ability.
Grow your own veggies! Things like herbs, tomatoes, broad beans, salad leaves, purple sprouting broccoli are all pretty easy for beginners with encouraging results! Gardening is extremely relaxing and an excellent way to meditate and ground yourself and connect with the earth. Garden witchcraft is a wonderful area to investigate. You then know exactly where the food you’re eating has come from and think of all the magicky goodness you will have infused it with during the growing process!
As with any food magic, look at the magical associations and correspondences of the herbs and spices that you’re using. Your bolognese has bay leaves, garlic, rosemary, thyme, sage and salt in it? Looks like you’ve got yourself a purification spell! Your salad has tomato, apple, avocado, basil, chilli peppers, beets? Is that a love spell you’ve created? 99% of magic and being a witch in general is intent. You’d be amazed how many cohesive spells you create with your food. All you need to add is a dash of magical intent.
Sigils! Always a versatile choice. You can create any you want, be it for willpower and motivation, appreciation, energy, exercise, good sleep, nutrient absorption. And you can draw them in your meals in sauce, or etch it into your spatula, store in your cook books, or keep in your utensil drawer, your refrigerator, on your water bottle. The possibility are endless.
I hope these may be of help to someone else out there. It’s important to stay positive when it comes to diet or, as I know only too well, it can be easy to slip into unhealthy or even dangerous habits. I’m rooting for you! And you really are beautiful just as you are :)
Bucky: May I have one of your fries? Tony: Of course. Can I have a bite of your burger? Bucky: Absolutely not. Clint: Some perfect couple. He won’t even share his food with him. Bucky: It has avocado on it. He’s allergic to avocado.
b/c im still working on content for them, here are some vancouver crowd headcanons, most of which are carried on from the captions on this post:
punk rock. absolutely punk rock.
the reason why there’s now a rule forbidding ‘unnatural and/or lurid colouring of hair’ circa 2014 in the aglionby rulebook.
he exclusively listens to alt-j, glass animals, and got7.
he takes all three sciences (chem, bio, phys) as well as both calculus and statistics, because he hates himself.
the angriest of petitioners. wrote a scathing letter to headmaster child protesting the limit on subjects, and as a result is currently the only aglionby student who takes fourteen (fourteen!) subjects.
buys gourmet sushi from across the aglionby dorms to feed his cat. she doesn’t appreciate it, he says, but is personally offended when one of the others suggests they just buy her normal cat food.
he mans the official vancrewver instagram, and under him, over 80% of it is selfies of himself. occasionally, there’s a shot of the defaced aglionby billboard with henry cheng on it, or a picture of cialina with sicksteve’s personal instagram tagged in the caption, but it’s mostly selfies. ryang’s selfie game is pretty strong. litchfield house was renovated with wall-length windows to give him good selfie lighting.
along with chengtwo, ryang’s closest to henry.
definitely the angriest and most slouching of the crew, to the point that he’s gained a spot in the hall of fame at nino’s for simply the Worst Of The Worst At Aglionby.
champions the swim and lacrosse teams, and gets up at ungodly hours in the morning to train.
he’s on pretty good terms with the mountain view kids. (tj takes joyrides on his motorcycle, confirmed)
the friend who somehow convinces you to do shit you’d never consider sober, and who gets you to drink enough to gain advanced perception of the shadow people in your peripheral vision.
ryang’s a truly renowned drunk who made koh buy him alcohol before he could legally do so himself. sicksteve has a scrapbook of him doing dumb shit at parties. they pass it around every break to remind him to chill out a little.
he broke his lacrosse stick over another student’s (tad! carruthers!) head for calling him a ch!nk, and was not at all sorry for the fallout.
there used to be a video on youtube of him doing shots at a party, and then proceeding to fistfight jiang, but it was taken down upon a teacher’s request. it’s been archived on the instagram page, though, and can be found between a picture of him and leesquared posing next to headmaster child’s porsche, and a video of rutherford doing his homework in the shower.
has little to no interest in advertising himself as a modest student, but has restricted himself to indulge only occasionally in his considered-radical political beliefs.
(ryang is a marxist.) (if you imply in any way that his beliefs reflect stalinist ideals, he will deck you.)
his instagram handle is unironically ryang.gosling, and has been since he was twelve.
he plans to go into law after aglionby, and has big plans for, in his words, revamping the justice system. the other boys relentlessly take the piss out of him for it.
in general, he’s not a fan of gansey, or who he perceives gansey to be, and he definitely isn’t a fan of ronan. he’s pretty fond of blue, though, and definitely dyes her hair to match her name when they get home from venezuela.
I've started to see Argan Oil pop up in a lot of facial care items in stores near me. I've always associated Argan Oil with hair care, not face care but I know that certain oils like rosehip are great for the skin. Do you recommend Argan Oil for the face? If so, what types of skin- dry, oily, normal? And what products are best? Should I look for face washes or serums or moisturizers with Argan Oil? Thank you so much for your help and time. I appreciate it greatly
Hi! Great question,
Argan oil is a more universal oil which is why it became more popular in the first place. You can use it as multi purpose oil on your hair, skin, body so you won’t need a bunch of products. It’s definitely safe for the skin and has good stuff like vitamin E which is great for skin health and fatty acids. These properties make it better for dry skin because it’s very nourishing. Rose hip oil is a little less moisturizing (but still moisturizing of course) and more anti aging and repairing because it has vitamin C & A making it great for sun damage, fine lines, oiler skin, dark spots, etc. It’s a silky, lightweight oil while Argan Oil feels more like a traditional oil while still absorbing quickly. Because of these properties those who are acne prone and have oily skin, dark spots tend to love Rose Hip oil.
Rose Hip oil is better for damaged skin, anti aging, dark spots, acne, mild dryness.
Argan oil is better for dry skin, flaking skin, hydration, dewiness, mature skin, dry hair, dry body patches.
Don’t be scared to mix oils, too. I have a few facial oils that are just a blend of oils like rose hip, avocado, sea buckthorn, etc. If you feel Rose Hip oil isnt giving you super dewy, plump skin then add a few drops of Argan, too :)
The Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil is super purifying and detoxifying to me, my skin feels like it can breathe better the next day… if that makes sense. It’s not a super hydrating oil but my skin feels clean and really soft the next morning. This is great when my skin is feeling congested.
The Jurlique Skin Balancing Oil is a simple, do it all moisturizing oil. It has rose hip, avocado, jojoba, shea butter, etc. It’s an easy to use oil that isn’t too heavy and is an added level of moisture. I use this and moisturizer when my skin is feeling dry or dull as a boost to my night time routine.
Drabble + Mark Lee + Face masks = the Pride of My Life
you sure this is a good idea?” Mark asked.
hummed, continuing to apply the homemade mask to his face. It was light green
from mashed avocado and speckled with little brown flakes because of the
cinnamon sprinkled in. Mark, groaned, complaining about how cold it was.
“Yes, I’m sure this is a good idea.
This will help with your skin, remember? Cinnamon helps with acne.”
“And the Avocado?
“It has good things in it like
minerals and moisture. Your skin will feel nice and soft after, I promise.”
“Huh,” Mark mused. He stuck his tongue
out and licked a bit off the side of his mouth when you looked away, scraping
up the last bit of the mixture. He coughed, immediately regretting his poor
“Holy crap- that tastes awful!”
“Why did you eat it?” You laughed, “Mark!”
“I don’t know! I assumed it would
be that bad, it’s just avocado-”
Mark licked his lips, “You know, the
after-taste isn’t so bad.”
“Oh, really?” Mark scooted across
the floor towards you, “Come’er, give me a kiss.”
“I’m afraid my response is hell no,”
he grabbed you and pecked your lips anyway, getting his mask all over your own
face. You squeaked, struggling to get away from your green-faced boyfriend as
he cackled at your reaction.
some people???? buy lots of vegetables??? to cope????
Haha that feeling when you are dissociating and buy 10€ worth of veggies because you wanna cook only to get home and realise you forgot an ingredient for each dish you wanted to make and therefore you can’t do jack shit, am i right?
