Witch Casket | Febuary

February's box is here and i'm in love with it, the theme this month is self love and i love that it's purple instead of pink. The first thing i noticed from this box when opening it was the super nice smell, which was coming from the Vander incense sticks.

I can't wait to use the self love ritual kit, everyone needs to love themselves as much as possible.

I'm only on my third box but i think i might have found a subscription box that has useful stuff for me. Unlike beauty boxes that have stuff i'd never use.

I love that every month i get a small crystal, i'm always wanting to buy more to add to my collection and this is a great way of doing it, this way i can discover crystals i would have never thought off.

The charms, rituals and spells are great as i'm new to those kinds of things and don't know much yet, so getting one every month from a practising witch is great and helps me learn new stuff. You may or may not believe in them but it's still nice to carry around the charms, last month's self mark charm/spell is still currently in my work bag as it was to reduce negative thoughts. I'll use the self love one when i'm not feeling my best and have a pamper day to go with it.

Witch Casket | January

 I signed up to Witch Casket which is a monthly subscription service. They sent you witchy items such as crystals, insense, tea, spells and charms. Sorry for these bad photos i totally forgot to take pictures of this one in january and these are all i had.

My favourite items from Januarys have to be the sugar skull spoon and the insense as it smelt divine, though i'm not sure what the smell was as i've used them up. I haven't used the beanie yet and even though it's super cute i might end up selling it because it isn't black :)

Febuarys casket will be up soon and will have better pictures and descriptions.

Two Cosy Winter Outfits

Some days I don't feel like putting yo much effort into getting dressed and just want something cosy and comfy to wear. This is mostly for days when I know I won't be out of the house for to long.
I've worn both of these outfits in winter and haven't been cold thanks to layering.

For this outfit i layers a long sleve top under the jumper to keep me warm. Thankfully it wasn't a super cold day so this kept me warm. Along with the scarf and leg warmers, i also had arm warmers under the jumper that you can just about see popping out. I've found that wearing arm warmers somehow always keeps me toasty warm. The tights i'm wearing are also ultra thick knitted ones that i always wear during winter and they keep me legs warm.

| Outfit: | Scarf - Gift | Jumper - H&M | Tights - Primark | Necklace - Killstar |

This outfit keeps me warmer than the last. I've layered a jumper under a hoodies cardigan, the day i wore this it was cold and it kept me warm enough. I've worn this combination quite a few times and one of them was in the middle of december. The tights once again and thick knitted ones which keep my legs toasty warm.

Iceland Planning

I've been thinking of going to Iceland since early last year. The idea of going to the blue lagoon and seeing the northern lights is drawing me to go. I'm planning on only going for around 4 days early next year. However i hate the cold and don't have a good enough winter coat. But this gives me the perfect excuse to buy a new one. I don't just want a coat that will be useful for Iceland but one i will wear again. I know i more than likely need a highly water proof one as it appears to rain a lot there from what I’ve gathered from research.

I thought i might need to take my snow boots, any excuse to wear them really as they keep my feet so toasty, but for the time of year i plan on going (Around March/April) it looks like my Dr Martins will do the trick, but this does mean i can splash out on cosy socks which i love. I've done some digging around on the internet to see what others suggest on wearing while there. I only plan on leaving the city to do the golden circle tour/geysers and the northern lights as it's only a short trip.

What i think i need; (Especially because I’m ALWAYS cold)
  •  Parka coat
  • Accessories, hat, scarf, gloves, thick socks
  • Extra thick tights to layer leggings over or thin tights under or thermal leggings. Leather look/feel leggings to combat the rain etc.
  • Thermal vest, because I’m always cold even in the summer.
  • Jumpers or cardigan
  • Boots

I plan on only taking a backpack for the trip and no suitcase so taking jumpers might not be a good idea as they take up a lot of space. However they might keep me warmer. It's always a good idea to have a spare anything just in case, so i might go in one jumper and pack another. I was thinking of taking a maxi skirt but i think it might be a bit impractical for most of the trip.

I plan on taking;
  •  2 pairs of tights
  •  2 leggings
  •  2 t-shirts
  •  1 cardigan or jumper
  •  6 pairs of socks, one for each day and a spare pair.

Iceland Planning

As for accessories I’ll have what i went in and depending on how much space is in my backpack i'll take an extra beanie and scarf just so it can look a bit different in photos. As it's me and I’ll more than likely only be wearing all black, i plan on adding colour to stand out against the scenery. I'll be doing this with shoes and accessories as i already have red dr martins that i plan on wearing as they're the hard leather ones and i already have a red scarf, which i think will be a good contrast against what i assume will be a mostly white background.

However it doesn't look like we'll be able to go in a few months, if not we'll be going early 2019 since we're mostly going for the northern lights. This year it looks to be just a cruise around some of Europe.

Hexbomb Hellfury | Review

Hexbomb Hellfury Review

So I finally got around to taking a bath with one of the hexbombs I have. This time I used Hellfury which made the water a blood red colour and smelt very nice as it's infused with cherry cupcake fragrant oil. The colour is very vibrant and stays that way, I forgot to empty the tub and when I remembered the colour was still the same.

It doesn't stain the tub. Which is great, as I used a lush black one the other day and that's left some stains. It was a very relaxing bath and the smell stayed for a very long time. As with most bath bombs it left my skin feeling soft too. I've got some more of their bathbombs to use and if they're like this one i'll also be in love.
