The Love List: May 2015

Hello beautiful people! I've missed you. I took a much needed break from the blog last month to turn #STARSANDCARDS into a free e-book (when you sign up for the monthly forecast!) and recalibrate before a few very exciting launches in June. You're going to love them, I promise.

In the meantime, this exquisite handmade mala from Jen Cintrón has kept me energized. It's full of good vibes from the Scorpio full moon, and it smells amazing from all the anointing oils. I'm already plotting my second one!

When I'm writing for you, this is my view. I love this photo, because it's like a little snapshot of everything I love. There's classics and Romantic poetry on the bottom shelf, metaphysical books on top, my creativity candle, rosemary picked on Halloween, a shell that I use as an incense holder, a pendulum, and a sugar jar.
