Glamour Rites

So I've been crying and whinging endlessly to anyone who will listen about being old and fat and no fun.  But at the end of the day, I'm a do'er.  I can't just roll around in the muck endlessly, I need to change things.  I've been trying to change things using boring, non magical means such as Pinterest boards to figure out where I'm going, not eating like my twenty year old self, going to the gym and changing my wardrobe.

But still.  There was inertia.  Then I read my PEH's soon to be seminal work, Sigils Reboot.  And I started thinking.  And planning.  I thought I would have done this rite like two weeks ago but shit kept happening.  So instead I spent my Good Friday (which I happened to have off and was both a Friday and a Full Moon) avoiding my family and practicing witchcraft.  Like you do.

You can't do a Glamour Rite without Beauty

NIIIICE. Your altars fill me with jealousy and joy, as I have plans now to refresh my shit and step up my altar game, hahaha.

Grey goose PEAR MARTINIS? I have got to try making those!

And the altars look fantasic and beautiful. Unfortunately nice altars like that aren't happening in my world! I'm all "do the work and pack up"!

@ Elle - That's what I did! That's not a permanant altar, that's our working altar :)
