Misty Days of Witchcraft

  Hello lovelies! Halloween is this Friday! I must admit, I am beyond ecstatic. Lately, I've been dressing very Halloween-y. My inspiration this year has come from watching season three of American Horror Story, titled Coven. In this season, there is a particular witch named Misty Day played by the AMAZING Lily Rabe. Lily Rabe did an amazing job playing Sister Mary Eunice in season two's Asylum as well. Misty Day is a huge Stevie Nicks fan, and she spends the majority of her on-screen time twirling around in shawls, listening to Fleetwood Mac. In other words, she's perfect! Just take a look at first Stevie, and then Misty.

And now Misty!

  They're both such lovely women, you can't help but love them! Because of them, lately I've been wearing a lot of floral print, shawls, and black lace. I also have this amazing skeleton hand hair clip from this Etsy if you'd like to check out some of their work. It's wonderful.
  Alright, I didn't have much to say other than Halloween! So enjoy some SpoOoOoky pictures and this Spotify Halloween playlist! At the bottom are a list of Misty Day-inspired songs as well. Enjoy Halloween, lovelies!

Keep Calm & Play Animal Crossing

  I've had a very troubling past few weeks, I hope all of you have been doing well. I've been drinking way more than I should be, and in doing so, I've been incredibly cranky during my sober moments. I've also been abusing amphetamines and opiates, and it took watching Walk the Line (the Johnny Cash movie) to get me to realize how drug abuse can really hurt my friends. Although I'm not going quite cold turkey, I'm going to try to limit my drug and alcohol use for the time being in order to keep happier and healthier.
  Last night, I found out some troubling news about my boyfriend, which caused me to end things with him. I feel incredibly hurt and betrayed, and I was very tempted to drink my feelings away. I stayed sober for the evening, which was probably the best decision I could have made. I feel maybe I'll only drink for fun now, not to numb my problems. I've also very recently quit smoking cigarettes, which made my life hell. It does not make you look cool. It does not take the stress away. It only adds further stress into your life by becoming addicted to a literal cancer stick. I'm so glad I've had the courage to knock such bad habits, and I encourage all of you facing the same troubles I am to kick them, too.
  On a lighter note, I've been kind of obsessed with the Animal Crossing soundtrack. I found some great 8Tracks playlists (1, 2) featuring Animal Crossing songs, so I highly recommend you check them out. You can check out my latest Tumblr project though, the CalmingCorner, where I've posted both of them. It's a new idea of mine to create a "safe place" type Tumblr where people going through panic attacks, crying sessions, or general fits of anxiety or anger can go to calm down. There aren't many posts right now, but I hope to post more when I get home from school in order to help those in need.

  That was a lot of pictures, I know, but they were pretty, so shh. I've been going toward this light pink/blue pale vibe lately, and a lot of these pictures totally follow it. I love it, don't hate! (haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate...)  I don't really know how to close this post, so just... enjoy your weekend, lovelies!
