Mindful Musings || A Catch-up, Christmas Is Coming


Hey there, Wilde souls. It's been a little while since I've written on here - how have we all been?

For me, the last few months have been a rather chaotic mix of amazing, terrifying and completely inspiring, all at once. I've been through a lot of rather personal life moments - from a change in friendships, to a roller-coaster in terms of my own body and mind (more to come on that later this month). I've almost finished my first semester at university and I'm so proud of the projects I'm working on for that and elsewhere, too.


But in amongst all of the madness, Halloween came in and slipped away from me - something I was insanely upset about (I was only briefly able to celebrate Samhain, I intended to write a blog post but it was all too late by the time I had a moment to sit and gather my thoughts) - and now Christmas is coming, too. 


Oh where the Craft would take me (UK)

Finding myself more immersed in my Wiccan studies as of late, I've been fascinated in learning about influential places, sites and grounds that hold a connection for Witches alike. Keeping it to the UK, this list is just a couple of the places I've noticed and become somewhat drawn to - A bucket list for my spiritual travels.

1. Stonehenge.

Getting the really obvious one out of the way first: Stonehenge is a famous heritage site and with wiccans, druids, travellers and the like gathering at almost every Sabbat, it's fairly common knowledge as one of the most iconic spiritual grounds in the UK. Built up of towering stones, origins entirely unknown (though many have speculated), the monument is one of the most visit places in the UK for witches to enjoy the solstice celebrations and moon phases.

If you read the post My Colour Is My Confidence or you've been around my social media a while, you'll know that I've always been fond of vibrant hair. From ombré, streaks, dip-dye or a full head of colour - I've had almost all of them.

Over the last few months (maybe 6-9 months or so), I've been leaving my roots to grow out and only dying the bottom section of my hair with colour. This was due to the awful build up of dead, frizzy hair and the absolute state I'd let it get in to from the years of damage and constant dying. It really, really needed some time to recoup and regrow from fresh.

My colour is my confidence



I think everyone will agree, confidence is kind of a big deal and frankly it's something that we all need to find for ourselves at some point (or various points) in our lives. For me, confidence is that feeling where you're incredibly happy within yourself, where positivity simply radiates and you're knowingly strong and reassured in yourself.

But it's more than just the good-vibe. It's that feeling deep inside you. I've been trying to think of a perfect way to describe it and I've been asking people what do you feel when you feel confident, but it's almost indescribable.

What even is confidence?
Where does it come from?
What does it feel like?

Twenty-five before 25




It has been just over a week since my birthday which, this year, I turned 23.

This year, I spent it away from home, with Levi - in Newquay! The whole thing was a surprise trip and having dreamt of visiting the south coast for years, was a perfect way to spend my birthday. A lot of beach walks, beautiful sunsets and quirky little towns to explore. We spent a good majority of the time with our feet in the sand and heads in the rock-pools or caves, it was stunning.
