Happy Halloween!


Or Happy Samhain to any of my fellow witches! Today is easily the best holiday all year long. Unfortunately, here on the US east coast, everything is covered in snow. :/ We got a terrible snowstorm Saturday night and the power went out on my college campus for a few hours. A bunch of towns around where I am have lost power and still don't have it back yet. Some places are not suppose to get their power back for a few days yet. I'm not exactly thrilled about this. Autumn seems nonexistent and on my favourite holiday I have to look at snow. I do not like snow or winter -it's cold and wet at the same time which is a terrible combination of things. So instead of appreciating the colours of fall and crunching leaves under my boots I'm dodging slush puddles and looking out on a sea of white. 

On a bit of a happier note though I am suppose to sleep over my best friend's apartment tonight so we can stay up and do witchy things in celebration of Samhain and in honour of the dead. I really wanted to make sugar skulls but I don't have the money to order the molds for them. 

Well, I suppose that's it for now. I hope you all are having a great Halloween!

Tumblr Tuesday #1!

Good day beautiful readers! Today is my very first Tumblr Tuesday post! Hurrah! -throws confetti in the air-
:D

Anyways, here's what I have found on Tumblr recently that has stuck with me. Enjoy!



Isn't that last one so adorable? I love cats! And bunnies! <3
Hope everyone is having a lovely week so far. And if you're not, you should be because Halloween is fast approaching, easily the best holiday of the year! So get costumes ready and stuff your face with candy if you need cheering up. Ciao!

Getting Back on Track


Hello lovely readers! This is me today, in case you were wondering. I was bored and decided some fiddling with my crappy webcam was in order while wishing I had a nice camera to take photos with. Quick story: I had a pretty nice digital camera that my mother got me for Christmas awhile back but after about 6 months it mysteriously went missing and I have not been able to find it since. I tore apart my room several times trying to locate it but no luck. It was quite sad.
But anyways, because I don't have a nice camera (anymore) I am stuck using my phone or webcam. So I apologize for the poor quality. I'm hoping a nicer picture-taking device comes into my life again soon.

Anyways, the name of this entry is called Getting Back on Track for a reason! Not because I think I have been slacking on this blog -I haven't even had it for that long. It more refers to life in general. I am a college student, and as students are wont to do, I have become really lazy lately. And I haaaaate being lazy. But today I got up, went to class and am determined to not just sit around all day like I did yesterday and the day before. Actually I am quite excited because I am suppose to go stargazing tonight with some friends which will be a nice change from just looking at the inside of my dorm room all night. Not that I don't like my room, because I do. It's very homey and I have an awesome roommate

On another note, one pertaining to this blog, I was thinking about doing themes for different days. I wouldn't be able to post something every single day, but I was thinking it would be nice to, on particular days, post things specific types of entries. I know a lot of people do this, including Hipporacle which is one of my favourite blogs on the web. I don't want to copycat anyone of course, that is not my intention. But I was thinking that of this as a general structure: 
Spiritual Sundays where I will take the time to discuss witchy or just plain spiritual type things. I might share a spell or meditation with you or just ramble on about one of my favourite deities.
Musical Mondays where I share some of the music I've been listening to; bands, songs, videos, the like.
Tumblr Tuesdays would give me a chance to share some awesome things I have found via Tumblr in the past week or so as well as post some blogs on there that I think are worth checking out.
Wordy Wednesdays would be a day where I would post a piece of my own writing, whether that be poetry, a piece from my novel or just random pieces.
Thoughtful Thursdays where I make a post about something that is on my mind and discuss it at length a little bit. This could be controversial topics or just ramblings about anything.
Food Fridays would give me a chance to share something like a recipe, a restaurant experience or anything related to food that other people might find interesting.
And lastly Stylish Saturdays where I might post my outfit for the day, any cool fashion-related things I find online or even one of my latest thrift store finds.
Thoughts? Opinions? Again, I wouldn't be able to do every one of these every week but I thought it would be a nice thing to do every now and then and it might help to give my blog some consistency. Otherwise I might just end up all over the place on here and I want to try to avoid doing that. I am scatterbrained enough as it is.

The Oh-So-Exciting First Post!

It is indeed time; this blog has been sitting here untouched for a few weeks and I decided it was about time that I finally grace the page with an actual post. I was going to sooner but I got frustrated with the site because it won't let me upload a profile photo. The problem has still not been resolved, unfortunately, but I give up trying at this point. So we'll just pretend there is a lovely photo of my face.

Anyways, hello to all of you reading this! If that is anyone at all. I suppose I can do this properly and introduce myself. Some of you probably know me from tumblr as ladyunlaced -I've had a blog on that site for almost a year and a half now and have gained quite a few followers in that time whom are all lovely! So if you know me from there you also probably know that I am a college student, 21 years young,  studying English Literature and that I have a wide taste in things like books, music, movies, television, etc. I am a huge Harry Potter nerd a dedicated Plague Rat. I am also a solitary eclectic witch. Oh yes, a witch indeed! I am self-taught and have been studying different pagan and witch traditions since I was about 13 years old. I do not identify with any particular path, instead choosing to create my own. 

I am also a writer. Everybody is these days, aren't they? :) But really, I am. I am an aspiring urban fantasy novelist who also dabbles in poetry and a few short stories. The poetry is pretty terrible but I am quite proud of the rest of it. I have been writing since I was very little and I honestly can't imagine doing anything else with my life. And, of course, with my love of writing comes my love of reading. I am an avid reader! I own tons of books and am perfectly content to just get lost in them all day. There is not much I love more in the world than books paired with a hot cup of coffee or tea.

So that's me in a nutshell essentially. I have recently decided to try my hand at "real" blogging rather than just spamming my tumblr incessantly -hence this blog's creation. No worries, my tumblr is not going anywhere! I love it far too much. However, I will be trying to keep this page updated with some more personal things. Expect: random bits about my life, some witchy stuff I may choose to share, scraps of my writing, posts where I rant on about my opinions, and probably random picture updates and maybe even a video every now and then! Really this is just a personal page with no real rhyme or reason. I don't have a theme or a real goal for this blog other than to share my life with people. So I would hugely appreciate any readers. Thanks for stopping by!
