Find the enchantment in your everyday - inspirations and a wishlist to surround yourself with magic

Have you ever dreamt, as a child, of having magical powers? Of preparing potions reading the ingredients on dusty tomes, or reciting complicated spells from fragile parchments? Of surrounding yourself of scented candles and crystals, and forming magic circles? Of observing the stars movements and the moon phases from a tall stone tower, with the only company of a cat or an owl?

 

I have. My imagination has always been fed with wonderful enchanted books - above all, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, His Dark Materials, The Mists of Avalon - with cartoon as The Sword in the Stone, and tv series like Charmed and Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I used to read and watch and meanwhile I dreamt (and also used to write!) of living similar adventures and of having magical powers, that obviously I would use for helping other people.

 

Growing up, that kind of image never abandoned me and influenced my adult self and my work: see all my lunar and Nature inspirations in my jewellery, my love and wonder for our Earth, and the strong belief that, when women gather in sisterhood (and in general, all human beings regardless of the genre), can do big and amazing things.

 

 

 

For this reason I wanted to create a list of inspirations, illustrations and artisanal products for those people who, like me, always try to find a bit of magic in the everyday life, and want to surround themselves with them.

 

This post is just the Part 1: the list is too long for just one post!

 

Lady Viktoria

 

 

 

The illustrations of Lady Viktoria, @Ladytor on Instagram, telling stories of apprentice witches, magical potions, enchanted forests, fairies, old legends and mermaids. I love all of them!

Amulets, ornaments and talismans must be in the list: moons, hands and leaves and all the sky to wear… obviously by PetiteFraise :)

My jewellery is available in my online shop, but if you want some custom piece, you can write me a message!

Dreamy Moons

 

 

Dreamy Moonsillustrations are inspired by universe and its power, by “the galaxies swirling in our souls and stardust that runs through our veins. By us. By Nature. By the connection between every living thing. By endless love within us”.
Together with her illustrations, I also love her lunar calendars, as postcards or posters.

Cera una Bolla

 

 

The famous vegetal and natural candles by Marika and Sara of Cera una Bolla, the parfums for the environment, the incense sticks and the palo santo wood: joy for eyes and nose! They’re wonderful for adorning your “nest”, their scents bring magic and a relaxing mood. I love the “Ebanonero” scent, it’s perfect for Autumn afternoons, but I can’t wait to try some other ones!

I sew so I don't kill people

 

 

 

 

Marianna of I sew so I don't kill people makes beautiful bags and pouches -they seem to be comfortable and practical as well!- with waxed and hand printed fabrics: the prints are inspired by the moon and the nature, and I can’t wait to buy something for myself!

For today it’s all, but before closing this post I’d like to add a couple of things.

First, follow on Instagram the hashtag #theverydaygoddess, created by the amazing Giada @goddessinspired, and use it for celebrating that spark of magic that we can find in our days, if only we allow ourselves to see it. :)

 

Last, if you have Pinterest, you can follow my board called “Magic and Spells” with magical and enchanted inspirations, find it here!

 

See you soon with a new post!
