ALM (Mayastar) Hippie Heaven Days | Chihuahuas & Cats | Gatsby 

Today in a #picsart collage. Reading on my #barlowtyrie #sunlounger in a #sunny #garden. My #Chihuahua pals with me #Gatsby soundtrack. #Reading. #henna #redhead #preraphaelite style (teal floor length cotton skirt, deep blue tunic and a rust colour baggy top for when it cools down). #nomakeup #nomakeupselfie #lushcosmetics tinted lip balm #cremedelamer complexion. #pandora #charmbracelet. #channeling no 19. Big #sunglasses & many bottles of #evian #springwater. Oh…cat too hot and she’s in the outdoor kennel till it cools down.

Toffee has fitted in really well. 

In the colder weather I need to bring my other outdoorsy cat in for a whole (nuisance neighbour feeds “strays” so outdoor cats stop coming home, foxes come round more and so do all kinds of vermin – she’s been told before not to feed my cat but public nuisance really. He has had been ill 3 times on whatever she feeds him but easier to bring him in during the colder weather and get him acclimatised again). 

I may get another chi then too. Both my cats and dogs live with each other and play together…except Charlie is ten now and Toffee and the cats play more so another chi would make the pack complete…that’s the plan. 
Sorting out crazy nuisance people who insist on feeding other people’s cats is a huge problem if you Google it. It means outdoor cats often render themselves stray…and the answer is to make your cat an indoor one. No one can stop them doing it. Well…surely, leaving food outside in a public place is littering? Apparently a cat of mine that went missing…presumed dead…over ten years ago, my dad found while looking for Fledge last year. She had been feeding him and he had lived as a stray that whole time! Apparently that’s not theft though).

Will find some way to sort that out…but for now, reading and chilling…

It’s totally #hippie heaven ♡

Update Mayastar & Maya Magickal | Spells | Reversals | Justice | Lunar Magick | Planetary Rulers | Rebalancing Energy | Eliminating Karmic Bonds | Morality | Manipulation & Abuse | Dance | Choreography | Full Moon

Today’s face of thunder #nomakeupselfie…

When u find out you been played…and realise sometimes #magick is the only way to break a negative karmic bond with someone who doesn’t have #selfawareness or #principles.

“You can’t reason with the unreasonable.”

But you def don’t want them messing with your energy and skewing your balance.

So tonight, my #pms combined with the #fullmoon and influences of Jupiter, I think working #Nataraj Dance of Destruction Reversal Ritual (focused on invoking justice – it’s a good #spell for tweaking in that way), would be the best fit! Plus I have a new choreographed version for tweaking the Nataraj Working for Justice and not a simple reversal as the two are so often requested together. So, tonight will be the first casting of the new one…a bit exciting to see how it will work. If it doesn’t “flow” I think perhaps it would be a good choreographical addition to the #Valkyrie working.  But feel the reversal element is essential to a a Justice By Right spell. I may end up doing a new spell for this option ultimately so watch this space! Xx

Still spaces for any spells/rituals Friday, Saturday – http://www.mayamagickal.net

Sorry office admin side is a bit behind. All attunements etc up to date and certificates being processed  Today’s face of thunder #nomakeupselfie…

Born This Way | Song of the Day | Lady Gaga Lyrics

image

Woke up early & #singing in bed under my #fairylights in my #bohemian #hippie heaven #boudoir…till the alarm goes (and I hit the studio and work everything out while I #workout!)

#SongOfTheDay #lyricsoftheday from #LadyGaga #BornThisWay ♡

“My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir

“There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are”
She said, “‘Cause he made you perfect, babe”
“So hold your head up girl and you’ll go far,
Listen to me when I say”

I’m beautiful in my way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way
Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way”

Mineral Magic Make Up Review | Part 1

image

#nomakeupselfie ??? Not exacty.

As a non make up wearer (tint my eyebrows & eyelashes and wear tinted lipbalm), the only make up I use on occasions is a little gold eyeshadow, copper liner, brown mascara and a lip stain. As far as base goes??? Mineral powders for a light all over airbrish look, a light reflecting powder finish (from #CremedelaMer). If I have under eye shadows I use #toucheeclat (#ysl).

If I need cheek colour I use a baby pink stain (like #posietint by #benefit).

And nowadays I use #wunderbrow to give better definition.

The thing is…I have tried a lot of powders. I have had compacts from YSL and CDLM that gave better coverage than some famous big brand ‘pure mineral’ foundations. I have had some that were so drying I got red patches. And one that seemed to irritate my eyes no matter how carefully I applied it. I have tried Lush’s version…but it’s a finishing powder not a foundation by any mean and it’s loose but in a tiny jar which makes it harder to use. CDLM loose powder and YSL are both v v fine and light and not at all drying.

So, the other day I saw #mineralmagic advertised. £10 on Amazon. A compact applied with a kabuki type brush. I applied a generous amount. Then I used a tissue to wipe away excess around the hairline and eyebrows and had a close look to see if it looked natural. It did.

This is supposed to have different coloured powders combined to neutralise redness or a sallowness. This seemed far fetched as a claim but the reviews are amazing.

I left it all night and had another close up…I could see areas where it had settled in small creases. You wouldn’t notice unless using a magnifying mirror and this is why I had used a large quantity…to see if as the night wore on, with no touch ups, it might coagulate a bit. It didn’t much. It could have been easily touched up because there was no concealer under it so a quick wipe with a tissue and reapplication would mean you didn’t end up with a pancake effect from layer upon layer.

As part of this experiment I am going to wear it in bed for a couple of days to really test whether it’s drying.

I mentioned Lush earlier. Other brands…Sheer cover dried my skin. Great coverage but was drying. Bare Escentuals was a lighter powder but didn’t have the light reflecting properties of sheer cover. It didn’t provide a one stop solution and I am far too lazy to spend time applying or reapplying make up.

So this is part one of my Mineral Magic review. My notes so far…

Colour is excellent
Colour density means no concealor needed
Stayed put & v minimal creasing over a day
Very matt finish at first but after an hour it looks more natural
Unlike some others I applied this liberally even close to my eyes and had no irritation
It’s very very cheap compared to other brands

So, now I will wipe excess with a tissue. Reapply. Wipe around my hairline and use a clean kabuki brush to remove any excess and check in, in a couple of days to let you know if it’s drying or causes spots or anything!  Xx

Personal Upd8 | Henna | Beauty Tips | Natural Skincare | Veganism | Make Up Free Selfies | Lush | Creme de la Mer

image

Bf away yesterday so had a loooong bath. So current personal beauty tips…

Henna & coconut oil perfect redhead with tidy roots. Tinted & tidied eyebrows. Tinted eyelashes. If you keep the basics covered & use quality moisturiser (Creme de la Mer & Oz Naturals Hyalauronic Acid serum), get lots of exercise…don’t drink or smoke, you can get away with #nomakeupselfie pix!

I think my plant based vegan diet makes a big difference. Using lush cosmetics yellow fun for washing & sympathy for the skin twice a day and I’m really soft all over. Happy days!

It is laziness & boho style that means I don’t have time for makeup except tinted lipbalm (hint of fuschia) – but it’s working pretty well!

Today I love… | Henna, Perfume, Creme de la Mer

image

I love…well! Tons of stuff 2dy. I love #CremedelaMer because it means #nomakeup #selfieoftheday pix are possible when I first get up of an afternoon (#nocturnal #nocturnalwonderland).

And I love…when my roots are freshly #Henna red & my hair is in #plaits, smelling of #Lush #AmericanCream conditioner (sooooo #vanilla!).

Trying to choose my #perfumeoftheday to compliment my hair…which is about to set free in a v #hippie, kinda #gothic but supremely #PreRaphaelite fuzz (according to #Elvis, v #KateBush)…and am torn between #AnnaSui #rockme, #thierrymugler #angel, #prada #candy or #marcjacobs #daisydream. Decisions decisions.

#Ootd will be teal #broderieanglaise v #victorian…marginally #goth…and wickedly #bohemian. Think…#VanessaIves (#PennyDreadful) as a #redhead and on ‘down day’..or a slightly more colourful #steampunk…always a total #princess of course!) ♡

And soundtrack today? Still flipping from #patienceandprudence (#ahsmurderhouse #tateandviolet) and #LanaDelRey #Honeymoon and #ultraviolence (#hipster #grunge #hiphop). So…a generally #kookie vibe that compliments my generally kookie vibe!

Happy days ♡ I’d better get myself into a #bubblebath & do some work ♡♡♡

Have a fabulous day!
