The Weekly Witch Review #6 : Scarlet Imprint Books, The Bohemian Collective, Daughter Of The Sun, Kandee Johnson's Maleficent Makeup Tutorial & 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...


Do you know of Scarlet Imprint books? If you adore magick and beautifully crafted reading material, you should! You might also want to check out this interview with the all-kinds-of-interesting publishers behind these deliciously esoteric tomes.

DiY Awesomeness : Love these Star-Shaped Lotion Bars by Jennifer Hay.

I get such a kick out of Krista Gassib's bright pink hair & her fierce commitment to rocking live-out-loud style each & every day.


Wild Freedom Is My Golden Fleece.

The new issue of Witches & Pagans magazine is dedicated to The Elemental Magick Of Earth & looks especially cool. I just ordered a paper copy (shipping is FREE in the US), but it's also available in a digital format. I see a few back issues I may have to pick up as well.

Do you remember when I told you that I am a crazy cat lady? I hope you took that warning seriously, because I now must share with you this snaggle-toothed puss rocking out to his human's guitar. I could watch this Bubba all day...

File This One Under WTF :  The Pentagon lays out it's official strategy for dealing with a Zombie Apocalypse.

Some people can be so weird about naked bodies. They're all about a pop star in a g-string & pasties bumping & grinding like a stripper, but a mother nursing her child? Put it away!!! Facebook actually removed this photo from my feed & gave me a warning when I posted it last year, so it doesn't surprise me at all, sadly, that some bozo reported it's kickass creatrix Amy of Daughter of The Sun's instagram account & had the whole thing taken down! Grrrrr... Thankfully, it has been put back up, and, if you're not following Daughter Of The Sun on Instagram, I highly suggest doing so now- if only to prove a point. Or- you could just do it for the super groovy pics.


Stephanie Perkinson of The Bohemian Collective presents this visually inspiring reminder to Create Space For Ritual.

Astrologer Kelley Rosano asks, "Will you walk away from yourself to follow another?", and offers other soul-stirring contemplations in her thoughtful report on the upcoming New Moon in Gemini.

Feng Shui For The Outdoors? Of course! Why didn't I think of that? THANKS for the link, LorriePage.

WiTCHY VLOG OF THE WEEK : Kandee Johnson's Maleficent makeup tutorial is totally awesome. Can't wait till the movie gets here! Only one more week...

  1. As you know, many people, especially the US, look at breasts as more sexual than a source of feeding babies. I think even mothers themselves helped to create this mentality by bottle feeding their young more instead of breast feeding. I bet most women bottle feed more due to them fearing their breasts may get more out-of-shape by breastfeeding, they find it inconvenient, maybe uncomfortable/embarrassing if needing to feed babies in public, etc. Some women pump their breast milk out to put in bottles to feed their babies. And older children--like 2-4 if seen being breast fed, looks offensive like pedophilia to some people...so no wonder it can seem more normal/common to feed babies via the bottle, and offensive to some seeing a mother breast feed.

    Good for you for posting the beautiful, cool photo!

    1. Good points! I love to see women bringing it back to nature & think that the internet has allowed us to express ourselves & connect with each other on these issues in a way that is truly awesome :O)

  2. I just now listened to your Church Of Rock & Roll podcast and I really enjoyed it!

    Wow--I thought my family's religion were strict; I grew up a Jehovah's Witness but I could still listen to any music as long as it wasn't any type of "satanic" music....Then at 17 (almost 18), I left the JW religion and became a Born-Again Christian, listening to a lot of Christian Rock too (but still any kind of music). Then later I found that that type of religion wasn't really for me (although I still look to Jesus as a perfect role model), and then I became Pagan (Wiccan Witch--Goddess and God duality belief (not trinity)). I pretty much stopped listening to Christian Rock but I still listen to Amy Grant--ESPECIALLY her Christmas albums, which I play more than any Christmas music during the holidays.

    I also agree with you about being at a concert and how people singing together is really awesome and endearing!

    I still go to a church--Unitarian Universalist--which is about as liberal church as you can find! I love it: Pagans, Christians, Buddhists, Humanists, etc. all together in worship under one roof. It's a pretty large church organization too--congregations covering the globe. Where I go to there's awesome music from the choir which is one of the reasons I go...such wonderful music.

    I bought some musical instruments last year from online and you have inspired me to get them out this week and start using them in my personal worship/meditation. I bought a Woven Straw Caxixi Rattle, a Shekere, and a Ghana Double Gonkogwe Bell with Stick Black. They are all easy to use and I really want to use them in a beautiful way during my meditation or spell work.

    Anyway, thanks so much for the podcast--YOU ROCK, GIRL!! =)

    1. THANK YOU, Lorrie!!! Your church looks awesome- we have a similar one here that I like well enough, but it is about an hour a way- each way. There are others too- I should explore closer to my home- I think that, when you grow up in church, a part of that culture stays with you. And- I agree about Jesus! Jesus is just alright by me...

      It brings a big goofy smile to my face to imagine you rocking out with those instruments you bought... and I don't even know what a shekere is!!! MUCH LOVE :O)
