June Favorites

MUSIC:
The latest episode of Post Punk Party I love discovering new bands; A Projection was my top pick out of the bunch.


Depeche Mode is my favorite band, so I was already aware that Martin L. Gore is a huge fan of The Mission. However, somehow I missed the release of this collaboration because I've been spending more time away from Facebook. Anyway, I'm playing catch up and the entire album is really great.
The Mission is one of those bands that I like but for some reason I forget that I actually have them in my collection. Need to mix it up more, I guess.






BOOKS:


A fun cozy series I've just started. Halloween, magick, and a murder mystery.

I'm also reading and working through Living Earth Devotional.
As a pagan, I'm supposed to be all in tune with nature and stuff, but honestly? The older I get, the more it seems that summertime just drains me of energy and I don't feel connected spiritually at all. Each day of the year has a page with a prayer, craft, recipe, or even ideas on how to reduce your carbon footprint. I like it because it's not a spellbook and doesn't rehash Wicca 101 material for the millionth time. It follows with the themes of the seasons and how you can align with them psychologically and spiritually. The traditional Wiccan sabbats are mentioned, but it really focuses on connecting with your local landscape and spirits rather than a God/dess or a pre-set festival structure that may not be in tune with what is happening in your climate.


RANDOMNESS:
I've been watching a lot of documentaries and youtube channels about veganism. While I have mixed feelings about committing to it, there is a part of me that is just beyond disgusted with the way animals are treated, and horrified about the crap that is being injected into the meat we are being sold. I'd like to at least try to limit my consumption to 2-3 times a week, and maybe even get meat from local farms if possible. For sure, I will be definitely making the switch to vegan self-care items and cosmetics. Anyway, I made these fries and holy shit they are amazing!!






Can't wait for Midnight, Texas to air! So far, I've really enjoyed this book series by Charlaine Harris. Looks like this will be more action packed since the books have that slow, southern vibe that might not translate as well to TV. Hopefully, it doesn't disappoint.

  1. I've been vegan nearly a year. Feel free to take the journey slowly, work on cutting things down and finding substitutes and not being too hard on yourself when you stuff up. Some vegans can be rude and very "my way or the highway", but most of us are just in it for the animals. <3

    1. Thanks for the supportive comment <3 Right now, I'm only eating meat 2-3 times per week and so far, it's not as hard as I thought it would be. Hopefully by next year I will be 100% cruelty free!
