Floating Acorn Cap Candle

These candles are a wonderful way to add a subtle incandescent light to an autumnal altar or table centerpiece, or float upon a pond or other body of water for a Samhain, Mabon or other fall ritual.

I made the candles pictured by simply removing the wicks from white tea-lights, (keeping the wax and setting it aside) and cutting each in half - making two candles per each tea light.

I made a simple double-boiler by thoroughly cleaning out, and removing the label from, an empty tin can, and holding it still in a pot of simmering water to melt the wax down.

Wearing thick gardening gloves for protection, I carefully poured wax into the empty acorn caps, filling them just below the rim of the cap, then sticking in the wicks, holding them still for a moment until the wax cools enough for the wicks to stand on their own.


Calming/Positivity bottle charm!

Ingredients: Rosemary, jasmine, bay leaf, rain water

1. Layer the rosemary (mental clarity), jasmine (peace and happiness), and bay leaf (protection against negativity) in your bottle charm while visualizing your intent.
2. Add a drop of rainwater (energy).
3. Seal the bottle (wax optional).
4. I wear the charm on a necklace to keep it close to my heart so I can best absorb its energy, but you can simply carry it or meditate with it - whatever works best for you!

wow on top of the General bullshit that was going on in 2015 there was also appropriated white art hoe culture that firmly believed that the highest form of enlightenment was being thin, white, and shopping at muji while everyone else was like deeply convinced that waxing, wearing makeup, and basically looking like a white person who happened to be Not White was peak feminism

October Nights, Autumn 2014

Left hand (top), L—›R (from thumb):

  • Custom multichrome by PrettyJelly on Etsy; named Riften. Overlaid with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black.
  • Dragonspell by ALIQUIDLaquer on Etsy. Overlaid with Sinful Colors Cloud 9.
  • Essie Bouncer, It’s Me!, overlaid with Sinful Colors Hottie, a dab of Chunky Holo Black, and topped with Wet n’ Wild Kaleidoscope for extra holo shine.
  • L'Oreal Lilac Coolers to Cloud 9 gradient. Overlaid with a bit of Max Factor Fantasy Fire on the purple end.
  • Bouncer, It’s Me! overlaid with Chunky Holo Black and Fantasy Fire.

Right Hand, L—›R (from pinkie):

  • L'Oreal Lilac Coolers, Zoya Miley, Sinful Colors Cloud 9.
  • Sinful Colors Hottie with a dab of Kleancolor Chunky Copper, overlaid with Wet n’ Wild Kaleidoscope.
  • Riften overlaid with Chunky Holo Black.
  • Lilac Coolers overlaid with Chunky Copper, Chunky Holo Black, and Fantasy Fire.
  • OPI Just Spotted the Lizard overlaid with Dragonspell and Chunky Copper; fades to Hottie.

I couldn’t decide what to do, so I DID IT ALL.


  • The real Chunky Holo Black is incredible, especially for a $3-$4 polish; it’s ridiculous.
  • I was worried about Riften upon seeing it flat on my palette, but it’s awesome on the nail. Berry-amber shift (like Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Amber Ruby) with a subtle golden green on the edges. Makes me miss running around with my sword and spells in the Autumn Forest. Highly recommend PrettyJelly; she’s great.
  • L'Oreal Lilac Coolers is pretty and layers well.
  • Dragonspell by ALIQUIDLaquer. Beautiful & unique.

Most Disappointing:

  • Essie’s Bouncer, It’s Me!. I wanted an electric blue jelly and since Essie is so popular I expected good quality. But the application is streaky and uneven, and it dries to a finish that looks like cheap blue candle wax. Not one to wear without a topcoat, for sure.

every time someone says that “unlike other Kingsman agents, Merlin wears cosy cute old-fashioned sweaters” I just sit here like

it’s literally called military sweater


those shoulder patches are originally there because it’s a wear area

it’s a wear area because you carry backpacks and shoulder firearms.
