I believe in me!

A friendly reminder to believe in yourself!

Hi!!! How’s everyone feeling right now after that big major moon??? I heard it was intense for a lot of people — myself very much included! Sometimes I get caught up in the intensity of life and stress and I forget something really important. So here I am writing this to remind myself, and you. It is a gift to be on this earth with the ability to create. Every day is an opportunity to create! The act of living is an act of creation! In case you forgot, you are the artist, you are the magician, and your magical creation is the life you live every day!

We are lucky to be able to do anything at all. Just having the ability to contribute love and beauty to the world is a gift. You are creating just by being. And anything else you do on top of that is bonus points!

So believe in yourself, believe in your ability to be the artist of your life and know in your heart you are doing the best you can every day.

Say it with me: I BELIEVE IN ME!

Bewitch your hair! (with Lunar Tides hair color)

What’s up witches?!? We all know we’re magical on the inside, but don’t you want to be magical on the outside too? I’m obsessed with testing out all kinds of pretty pink colors on my unicorn mane, so naturally I was stoked when I found out about Lunar Tides Hair Color. This Seattle-based creative color line is cruelty-free and vegan, and as of right now they have 34 shades to choose from – pretty impressive! I’ve seen them all over Instagram so when they sent me a few shades to try, I was over the moon!

The shades I decided to test out were Smokey Mauve, Lychee Pink, and Petal Pink. I started off trying to do the DIY thing, but let’s be real here — coloring your own hair is messy and kind of stressful (no one has eyes in the back of their head ok?!?). Luckily my amazingly talented hair stylist friend Wes Pine was around to save the day! He helped me melt the colors into each other, rinse them out (with a little Olaplex love too!), and get everything styled and looking fabulous! Watch our process to see our favorite tools, our best tips for maintaining unicorn color, and of course to have a magical time!

Where do we go now? This post-solstice journal meditation will carry you out of the darkness and into the light

The darkest times are over, really: December 21st brought us the longest night of the year, also known as the winter solstice, and with it, the year’s longest visible full moon. To see the culmination of our darkest nights meet the bright glow of our fully illuminated moon was a powerful reminder that just as the sky can move from shadows into light, so can our consciousness. It is no new school of thought to view the end of the year as a time to shed what is no longer serving us, and direct our focus where it is truly needed. But this isn’t just a time to make a new year’s resolution and call it a day (or night); it is a time to reflect inward on what truly matters to you, and how you can move forward with intent to better align your life with your soul’s purpose. This journal meditation will assist you in processing what you have been through, so you can learn from it and decide where to go from here.

give yourself a fresh start

Spiritual pep talk time! Logging into this blog just now felt like busting open a REALLY creaky door in the middle of the night, probably waking up a roommate. (Am I still welcome here?!?) I’m ashamed to say I nearly abandoned this magical place!
I have a confession to make. I’m not a witch for a living (although I hope someday to cast a spell that pays the bills). I have a full time day job and a dog just like you. For a time I really just let my life get in the way of, uh, well, my life. Has this ever happened to you?
