I turned 26 today which means that the mandatory tradition of taking a birthday took place this afternoon. The paper flowers (26 of them – can you tell I’m trying to stick to the theme?) took a hella long time to make but so worth the time and my barely opened AM eyes. I took a staged photo of myself the day I turned 23 and have kept to this little tradition of mine since then.

I lied. No film Fridays today. Instead I leave you with a photo that was taken on a weekend trip I had with a few friends. One of my friends snapped this photo of me while I was trying to work out how to effortlessly drape the shawl over my shoulder in a field of tea leaves. 


Without fail, Hocus Pocus always makes its annual appearance on the Disney channel every year. I remember watching it before and sometimes after coming home from trick or treating from when I was a kid. This is definitely another Disney classic that not accompanied kids from the late 80s and early 90s. 

It’s been three hundred years
Right down to the day
Now the witch is back
And there’s hell to pay

I put a spell on you
And now you’re mine!

I haven’t seen this movie in years. And I honestly can’t think of a better way to relive the innocence of youth by watching it on this Hallows’ eve!
