7 Steps to Manifest Anything

I'm gonna level with ya - I may call myself a practicing witch, but I haven't had all that much time for any sort of "practicing" that isn't the rehearsing of a stressful work phone call. That being said, there are some things in my world that are going kind of topsy-turvy right now and so I'm calling up all the powers of the universe to help me manifest an optimal outcome.

While I don't remember exactly where I first came across this 7-step process, it is one that stuck with me that I keep coming back to:

1. Clarity - really flesh out what you want
2. Dump limiting beliefs and blocks
3. Ask the universe - but don't beg
4. Take action - daily steps to take
5. Acknowledge what you receive
6. Keep your mind positive
7. Repeat as needed....

And for good reason! These seven, simple steps work for just about anything you want to manifest in your life.

But let's use my situation as an example.

The boy and I had been talking about moving out of our slumlord rental since about the moment we really settled in and since our lease is up at the end of June, we had started looking for options - I was even considering renting a house or a duplex!

So step one was to really flesh out what I wanted in our future rental. There were a couple of things I was willing to compromise on (like switching back to coin-op laundry) and other things I was not (like needing a dishwasher and air-con in the unit). I wanted something that was closer to my workplace or at the very least in a nicer neighborhood than the one we'd accidentally holed up in.

I really thought we'd need two solid incomes to make anything like that work, but then suddenly the boy lost his job and I had to seriously reevaluate what I was capable of affording. So maybe a $1,200 a month duplex was out of the question. That didn't mean I couldn't find what I wanted in a standard apartment complex, right? So there's step two - dumping some of my mental blocks and letting go of limits.

The third step was probably the easiest for me, asking the universe for help. Sometimes that's as simple as breathing your desire to get some good hits before cracking open Craigslist or whispering a fervent prayer for available units before running a search on I didn't beg - no one likes a whiner. But simply letting the powers that be know that you're open to their energies can take quite a weight off your own shoulders.

But that does't mean you can give up! You still have to put the work in. For me, it was diligently scouring apartment openings near my workplace and cranking out phone calls to set up showings. We got quite a few set up and we went to see some of these units. None of that would have happened if I hadn't taken the necessary actions in response to my plea for help and whatever deities that were listening.

Step five is to acknowledge what you get out of the process. While none of the units we looked at where quite in our price range, time frame, or preferences, it was important to remind ourselves that now we were armed with way more knowledge about the rental process and availability in the area than we had been.

And yeah, three out of five showings were total busts - but staying positive is absolutely crucial at this stage. I could let myself get discouraged and just give up on finding anything good. I could just grumble and slack off and end up settling for something sub-par. But I choose not to. I'm choosing to look forward to the next showing tomorrow and keep my hopes up that this will be the one. I've got a good feeling about it anyways, and if that's not staying positive I don't know what is....

The last step - you can always go back up to the last step you left off on and try again. Or maybe you have to start over from scratch. But as you do, you'll get better and better at this manifesting thing. Because you'll have had the practice needed to really clarify what you want and how you want to get it and you'll know what works and what doesn't.

Magic or not, the confidence gained from employing this manifesting process is golden.

My Skin Care Routine - Late Summer/Early Autumn

As we slide into August I've started to take stock of my current skin concerns and the routines or products that are either working for me...or aren't. As the weather begins to cool just slightly and that nasty humidity drops off, I start to focus a little more on moisturizing and less on SPF mania (thought that never truly goes away....)

I have combination skin, so I tend to be oily in some areas and fairly dry in others - and these differences seem so much more apparent and exacerbated during the hot summer months. Now that I feel my skin needs are more streamlined, here is my current skincare routine:

Morning I'm not a morning person, so I've whittled my morning skincare routine down into something I can in between brushing my teeth and getting the coffee pot going. I start with a quick sweep of my face using micellar water on a cotton pad, followed with dabbing a few drops of the Primer Water into my skin. I roll the eye serum on while watching coffee drop and then…

OOTD: Lime Green Popsicle

So I got a hair cut! These photos were actually taken the morning before that happened and looking back, I can see how frizzy and nasty those split ends were. Here's the issue though - I'm not in love with the cut I have. Sure, the split ends are gone and it looks sleeker, but I'm just not *happy* with it.

I went into Fantastic Sams after work on Friday and maybe it's because they were closing up shortly after my scheduled cut, but I felt like my hair stylist was rushing a bit - she barely even wet the back of my hair to trim it let alone the front. I wanted a sharp line - shorter in the back and longer layers in front - an angled lob if you will. 

Is that what I got? Nope!

I got home and the boy was like "Did they even cut your hair?"

And here's the thing: I'm a very non-confrontational person in real life. On the internet, I fire back at all the trolls, no holds barred. In person, I tend to be reserved. And let's face it, it's almost imposs…

BIRCHBOX July 2018 Unboxing + Review

When the concept of beauty subscriptions first crossed into my awareness, I was honestly torn between Birchbox and Ipsy - there were pros and cons for both. At the time, I was looking to beef up my makeup stash so I initially settled on Ipsy and that was a good run while it lasted (I'll be getting my last bag with them in August) but then they had their anti-trans snafu during Pride Month and I couldn't, in good conscience, stick with 'em.

So a couple of coworkers tell me how much they like Birchbox and that I should give it a go if I'm more into hair and skincare products these days. Which I am. So here we are:
