The Weekly Witch Review #5 : Harry Potter And The Escape From Gringotts, Vintage Vixon, Spirit Weavers, LA Witch & More!

TGiF Witches...

Welcome to the latest edition of "The Weekly Witch Review", a kickass guide to all things new & exciting (or at least new & exciting to me) on the wonderfully wacky world wide web...

My name is Joanna DeVoe, and I am a tea-o-holic. Therefore, I was extremely relieved to see two of my favorite brands, Numi and Traditional Medicinals (which you can find at Target of all places!) getting the nontoxic seal of approval from the Food Babe.

As a crazy cat lady, it is impossible for me to NOT share this with you... Kickass Cat Rescues Child From Dog Attack. You've seen it right? Most everyone has. I know. I know. But- like I said- I am a crazy cat lady & this cat happens to be from my hometown.

Do you remember when I interviewed the impossibly awesome bohemian goddess Vix Brearley of Vintage Vixon? That was so much FUN, and that's because Vix is FUN, like truly, madly deeply groovy from top to toe. It probably won't surprise you that her home is just the same...

Just stumbled upon this lil' love note to life Sarah Durham Wilson wrote back in March. It's a rambling mishmash of goodness about her haunted stay in a Salem hotel, sweet doggie gratitude, "How sweet the hound that saved a witch like me...", and other stuff. So many delicious nuggets of wisdom here...  

"That Adele song always infuriates me. It’s not 'never mind I’ll find someone like you.' 
It’s 'nevermind, I’ll find what I sought in you, in me'..." 

(video) This made my heart smile & is sooo worth sitting through a 30 second commercial for. Grandmothers as bridesmaids! Too sweet.

Am I a witch? YES. And- do I reside in Los Angeles, California? Why YES I do. Therefore, I am pretty sure I need one of these. Giving me Rrriot Grrrl flashbacks...

Do I really have to travel to Florida to experience Harry Potter and The Escape from Gringotts ride??? I am Hollywood adjacent for cryin' out loud. Come to Hollywood, Harry... Come to LA!

Many a Biz Witch tries to open her own crafty shop online... & fails. There are many reasons for this, including issues with marketing, branding, originality, patience, persistence and photography. Photography matters! Big time. Your goods may be good, VERY good, but who would know it by the cheesy, ill-lit pics you've hastily tossed up on your Etsy page? If this is ringing a bell with you, you might want to check out 10 Things You're Doing Wrong With Your Craft Photography.

Gala Darling on How To Create Your Own Full Moon Ritual.

The 2nd Annual Spirit Weavers Gathering in Joshua Tree has sold out, dang it. I mean- good for them, good for the whole institution of female empowerment & soul sistar retreats, but bummer for those who wanted to go & weren't able to get in on time. The good news is that tickets to the House Of Flowers, which immediately follows, with Sweet Medicine Nation are still available.

Regarding Graham Hancock's Magicians Of The Gods tour 2014... Yay!

Love this recipe for Silky Rose Face & Body Lotion.

R.i.P. Morning Glory Zell 1948 - 2014...

“This is the stranger-than-fiction story of two soul mates who rejected the status quo and embraced higher ideals . . . and had a whole lot of fun while they were at it.”
