Whenever you like dark things people often associate you with ill intentions. Don’t let that nonsense get to you. A wise witch knows shadows only come from light. As long as you aren’t harming anyone, continue your ways. Be careful of how you use your intentions. What you speak into the world, what you wish, what you think, and what you do are all forms of energy. Think about what energy you’re creating within and outside of yourself. It’s okay and normal to be unbalanced often but being aware of when that happens will be the key to your self mastery.

Rose Priestess

This hoodie/dress was purchased a few years ago and I don’t believe I will ever part with it. Whenever I wear it, it makes me feel powerful than majority of the garments in my wardrobe. Its black velvet, embroidered with roses, has exaggerated bell sleeves, and has a red satin lining. This dress persuades me into feeling as if I could be the leader of a coven. Perhaps, maybe one day I will be! I encourage every person out there to find clothes that make you feel this powerful as soon as you put them on. Who knows what you will accomplish while wearing them.

Love & Light,

Raven

Just Like Heaven Festival 2019

Twitter Friends

Hey Guys! Just thought I’d share a couple of photos from yesterday! Going to this festival brought back some teenage memories and it was so much fun. I didn’t know this festival was actually happening until the universe threw it in my face. I met a girl on twitter the day before who was going. Although it was sold out, I somehow managed to get on a waitlist for refund tickets. I was lucky enough to get a ticket within a day! I also v-logged my experience but its definitely not the best vlog. Lol! Towards the end of the festival I was having too much fun to keep filming. Nonetheless I’m gonna put what I do have up on my youtube channel, so you can get a taste of how fun it was!

Hopeless Romantic

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and as much as many people can’t stand capitalist holidays, I have to say it’s one of my favorites! The reason it’s one of my ultimate faves is because I’m quite the hopeless romantic. I love giving and recieving love. Whenever I was a young girl, my dad would always be sure to gift my sisters and I Valentine’s Day presents. It was never anything over dramatic or too extravagant but he made sure that we all had a present. He never explained why, but I’d come home from school and there’d be an assorted chocolate box and flowers waiting for me on my bed. I didn’t grow to relate Valentine’s Day with feelings of loneliness and dread like some do because of him.

Anti Valentine’s Day

In fact, I believe that the trend of Anti Valentine’s day supporters has become increasingly popular and I find it incredibly sad. If you don’t like to receive love, you’re lying to yourself! I believe people grow bitter if not shown or given love consistently throughout their lives. I’ve been there.. I know. However, I’m not saying everyone should LOVE this holiday but instead we should view it as a national day to love ourselves and one another. At the age of 16, I remember promising myself each year I would do something special but for me! I started a tradition where I would get all dolled up and go out for dinner either with friends or just myself. To this day at 25, I still do it every year. Self love is not something you can have without practicing it. Take the time for yourself and love a little! Celebrate your successes of making it this far in life regardless of what’s currently going wrong. You are experiencing. You are living. It’s time to enjoy it!

This outfit is something I’d definitely wear while going out on Valentine’s Day! I hope it gives someone inspiration to do something nice for themselves or for someone else.

With love,

Raven

Outfit Moods

Life is too short not to express yourself. If I want to go full glam to get a cup of coffee with a friend, then so be it. When you feel good, you look good. Remember that last sentence.. in that exact order! There are days where minimal effort is my mood and I can’t be bothered to think about a makeup brush let alone a lewk. Sooo with that being said, I never really know what makeup or outfit I’m wearing until I’ve tried it on and it feels right. Issa vibe, you know? You gotta feel it in your soul.

Wig vs. Extensions

In other news, did you notice I’ve changed my hair yet again? Hello! My name’s Raven and I actually work for the CIA. Lol.. just kidding! 😉 Most of the time people are curious whether my ‘latest’ hair is a wig or extensions and at this point I definitely don’t mind sharing the details. Ask away! I’ll give you the 411 sis. This time around, the blonde hair in the photos is a sew in! Can you believe it? I’m not wearing a wig?! Whaaaat? Lol.

Towards the ending of 2018, I started to gravitate more towards netural/natural hair colors. Majority of my 2018 hair colors were extremely bright, colorful, and way out of my comfort zone. It was time to retreat.. just a bit slightly with hair color. I’ve only ever been blonde once and it was for less than two weeks, but I enjoyed feeling like Barbie. Soo, Barbie has returned and is livinggggg for this hair!

It’s absolutely wild how differently people can treat you based off your hair color! For example, when I had pink hair a few said my hair was cute and that I looked magical. People seemed to think I was younger than I actually was and didn’t seem as hesitant to talk to me about my hair. Whenever I have black hair, people hardly compliment the hair and tell me I come off intimidating. Although I don’t ask for any of these opinions, feedback is a very interesting thing to receive about yourself. As long as you don’t take anything personal, it’s fine to hear it. Without the feedback, I woudn’t know which wig to wear when I don’t feel like talking to people tbh! :p I hope you’re having a good start to 2019. More things coming soon!

With love,

Raven

Bag – O Ring Patent Black Backpack

Hello! Hope you’ve had a good holiday! I’ve been holding onto this outfit of the day for awhile and wow I’m happy to finally share it. If you’re familiar with my style, this look may be a tad out of my norm. What do you think of it? Lazy Oafs collab with Daria seems to be based around the main characters personal style but with a new modernized look. I’m definitely living for this collection. There are so many different ways to style an oversized t-shirt but with this look I wanted to add a bit of edge by paring it with chunky boots. I felt comfortable but also flossy with this fit. More natural hair and outfit of the days on the way!
