it's growing on you

I really hate these, but I really love them too, here I am again, weird selfies, bad discription and way to many tags.

Hi I’m Savanna (she/her) and you’re all beautiful human beings! Come talk to me if you want, I’m an socially awkward potato, so don’t expect too much from me.

You need to slow down for you to realize and enjoy life’s simple pleasure. You don’t have to force yourself to smile, you’re not obliged to hide the scar you’ve been carrying around, you don’t have to face life alone, you’re not forced to forgive the people that have hurt you, it’s all okay, really. You can take your time and learn from it. Let the pain flow in you and grow with its every touch. In life, things will pass easily, you have to cherish every single moment, the good memories and the bad ones.

I really dislike well-kept gardens. When plants are constantly cut to unrealistic perfection it makes me sick because plants shouldn't have restrictions and when people (gardeners) keep cutting plants, they are disposing the waste into the trash and it isn't natural. When you leave plants untamed, you make it grow to its full potential - how wide and long it grows, its unique characteristics. Humans are so picky and don't give a shit about nature, only its aesthetic.

Please don’t take this rudely but that is such an odd pet-peeve! I’ve never really thought about it in the sense of it being unnatural but I do agree - especially when plants are in really neat shapes!? They look better a bit rugged and natural! I feel like I’ve learnt something about myself which is that I actually don’t like overly manicured gardens either :’-) xx

Hi ☺ I was wondering if you knew of any easy but long lasting spells for the protection of just one or two rooms? Also just wanted to say I love your blog! Its so sweet and light and its really helped me learn and grow! Thank you so much :D

Hey there! Thank you so much; you are so wonderful😍

I would recommend check out my Witch’s Black Salt Post for sure! The salt is cheap and easy to make, and a jar of it blessed with the intention of protection will do wonders for you!
You can use the black salt -or regular salt if you choose- in combination with my rendition of a homestead protection spell which I posted here.

Something else you may consider for long term effects would be a little bag or jar of dried herbs such as Rosemary, Bay, Black Pepper, Basil and Clove!

Both of these can be made small enough to conceal if you wish to remain inconspicuous. Much love to you!

Wonder Woman is getting a movie. Wonder Woman is getting an epic origin story. Wonder Woman is the main character in a massive blockbuster and she’s not going to be sidelined, shoved into a secondary position, or going to made to look like she’s weak or less than a male. She’s not going to put in a box, labeled romantic interest for no reason than to make her seem more feminine. The male in the story is secondary to her, and will never be made primary over her. Wonder Woman is directed by a woman, made to resonate with women, and not to be objectified by men. Fucking Wonder Woman is happening, and it’s amazing

Okay, so. I’m getting really tired of the idea that “true” Star Wars fans “know” that TFA was a terrible movie, that Jar Jar Abrams singlehandedly ruined the franchise, that Rogue One was everything TFA wasn’t or whatever. I’m honestly sick of it.

I grew up watching Star Wars. I can remember being in diapers and seeing Darth Vader on the TV screen, and I remember my parents taking me and my brother out of school early on opening day to see RotS. I loved Padmé, and Luke, and all the Skywalkers. I was a fan for years, and when Lucasfilm announced that they were sold to Disney and there would be new movies coming out, I was over the moon. More movies! Oh man! I wonder what they’ll do next! I was optimistic even when people on the Internet were screaming about how Disney would turn Star Wars into a musical cartoon. Having seen The Avengers and enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean series, I knew Star Wars was in good hands under the Mouse.

TFA came out, and when I saw it…it was even better than I hoped it would be. I was giddy and ecstatic over it all in a way I hadn’t been in a long time. In fact, I saw it a total of five times in the theater, a very rare thing for someone who sees most movies once in the theater and is okay with never watching them again. To this day, when I pop in my TFA Blu-ray, I enjoy it just as much as that first time at the movies. It’s just…a really great film to me. I love it a lot. And it’s so special, especially since it introduced two of my favorite characters to me. I think JJ Abrams did a great job with Episode VII, and the professional critics who made the movie sit at over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes would agree with that idea.

You’re not a “better” fan for hating TFA. You’re not “edgy” for trashing on JJ Abrams and claiming that anyone who enjoys the movie doesn’t “get” Star Wars. You can hate the movie all you want, of course; everyone has their own reasons for disliking what they dislike, and I’m not about to force you to like something you don’t. However, what I will tell you to do is to let go of this idea that “true” Star Wars fans only like certain Star Wars movies, that certain movies deserve to be disregarded while others should be placed on a pedestal if you want to keep your Official Star Wars Fan Badge™. Guess what? TFA exists! TFA is an official Star Wars movie! People who enjoy TFA…are real Star Wars fans!

Anyway, I love TFA, and I’m so, so excited to see what happens next in Episode VIII. It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan!

Also, I was trying to get back into writing with dialogue practice last night. All I got is Artorius doing his dumb bird metaphor with Sorey and Mikleo, and…



Artorius:
Why do you think birds fly?

Sorey: Well, that’s because all animals have to adapt to their environment to survive, right? And many birds are just built for flight – they have wings, streamlined bodies, feathers, and even hollow bones! These are all designs that naturally allow birds to soar high above in the skies.

Artorius: Uh–

Mikleo: Right. And it isn’t just for survival either; some birds are predators and flying helps them hunt prey more efficiently.

Artorius: No, that’s not what I mean–

Sorey: Yeah! It’s also sort of a misconception to say all birds can fly. They might look like they’re built for it, but some birds – like pengyons – can’t fly at all, but are good at catching prey in the water.

Mikleo: Indeed. So, I think the question we should be asking is: why do birds even have wings? What first made them evolve and develop these wings so that they could take flight or swim better in water?

Sorey: Birds are amazing, aren’t they Mikleo? I’d rather be a bat though. Bats can fly and use sonar to find their way in the dark – that’s like, double cool!

Mikleo: Of course you would. You’re the weird one here, after all.

Sorey: Hey, birds of a feather flock together….

Artorius: Can you two nerds stop ruining my metaphor already?

💖🥚Ostara Tips!🥚💖

Spring is finally upon us! Remember, even if you’re a busy witch, you can do simple things to celebrate today:

• Talk to your plants. Put a favorite little crystal or tumbling stone next to their roots! 🌷
• Take deep breaths while you’re outside. Even if it’s just while walking to your car for work - Visualize the fresh air as the new energy of Spring while you inhale, exhaling the built-up energy from season’s past. 🌬
• Charge your morning tea or coffee with a crystal, letting your beverage absorb its radiance and drinking up its energy. 🍵
• During your meals throughout the day (and try to eat lots of vegetables and fruits), be grateful for your food, that which you have access to from the Earth and its power to grow. If you have time, write a quick love letter to Nature. 🌍
• Celebrate through color! Wear pastel pinks, blues, greens, and creamy whites. ✨

  • Russ in Episode One: FOUL SPIRIT! WHY DO YOU TORMENT ME SO?! YOU TWIST AND CONTORT MY BODY TO TURN ME INTO A VESSEL OF EVIL!
  • Russ in Episode Three: Oh, hey Doug. How am I going to be possessed today?
I can’t believe this

I AM SO ASHAMED. I have been wondering why no one has been ordering “Bull” candles, because damn it’s a good scent combination. Then I look in my shop….and….I FORGOT TO LIST HIM AHHHHHH!! My apologies! Description:

BULL: Black sea, whiskey, leather, and vetiver combine to create this masculine and alluring scent worthy of The Iron Bull himself.

…Shehecheyanu, v'kiy'manu, v'higianu laz'man hazeh.

Mabel sang the last words of the blessing and held the bottom of the shamash over the first night’s candle to soften it. She then carefully pulled the sleeve of her sweater up before sticking the shamash back in place. She’d mentioned not wanting her recently-knitted sweater—a blue-and-white pattern decorated with candles and a dancing dreidel—to go up in flames, adding that she’d learned that lesson three Hanukkahs ago.

“Very nice, sweetie.” Stan smiled at her from his place on the couch.

“And now for the best part—presents!” Mabel grinned. “Mine are all upstairs, be right back!”

She hurried out the den and bolted for the stairs, nearly running into Soos on the way. Stan had noticed him hanging there while Mabel said the blessing, peeking his head in from the hall.

“Oop! Hi Soos!” Mabel chirped as she passed by, “…Aren’t you going to join us?”

“Is it okay if I do?” he asked. “I don’t wanna, y'know, intrude or anything.”

“Just get in here,” Stan called out in a gruff, annoyed voice. “We’ve already got a former Bunyanite and a guy who accidentally started his own religion sitting here. We can make room for a Catholic.”
