    The Magic of Marie Laveau

    The Magic of Marie Laveau: An Honest Review The Magic of Marie Laveau is a book that I wish I had picked up a lot earlier than I actually did. In my own bias, I stubbornly let it sit on my shelf for a few weeks as I caught up on other books thinking, oh I’ll get there when I’m ready. As perhaps ignorant as it sounds, I don’t devote a whole lot of time towards reading books about voodoo/hoodoo and felt as though this book maybe wasn’t going to be for me. I was wrong. Every notion I had about this book before reading it was wrong, quite frankly.…

    $25 or LESS (last minute) Yule Gift Guide

    The gift giving season is upon us! Over recent weeks, I’ve posted quite a log about how I am disengaging with traditional gift giving and instead moving to handmade or small business oriented. In general, it’s seemed more and more each year that the focus on material things has made the focus on connection and celebration take the backseat during the christmas/yule season. That’s how this gift guide came to be! Celebrating the holidays shouldn’t mean going broke to afford gifts we can’t actually afford, nor should it mean continuing to give our money to large companies who are working their employees to the bone during this season just to…

    Backwoods Witchcraft ; A Review

    📚Book Review: Backwoods Witchcraft by @jake_richards13 📚 I’ve read this book no less than three times in the span of the two weeks I’ve had it and I’ve honestly wondered how I’m going to review it. Let me start by saying this: this book is not for everyone but it SURE AS HELL was for me. Why? I’m a folk witch, I live in the south, and this book felt like coming home. That said, this book is not for everyone -It’s not fluffy or “white” and it’s extremely Appalachian folk flavored. Folk witchcraft is a unique branch of witchcraft that changes not only from person to person but also changes from…

    Witchcraft Book Review Roundup – January 2019

    via GIPHY One of my absolute favorite past times is reading books. Old fashioned, printed, usually dusty books. The beauty of a good book is that you get transported into the world of it. A good author can make you feel and see and hear things that you would never have in your daily life. If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I do book and deck reviews about twice a month. What isn’t pictured on my instagram is ALL the books I read, and what I think about them. I read a TON of books, mostly on witchcraft and history and I’m usually pretty good on…
