The Gift of La Magie { GIVEAWAY }

188 The Gift of La Magie { GIVEAWAY } - 2Okay, giveaway # 2, here we come! This one applies to everyone who wants to enter – in the country (if you are overseas and want to enter, and have a friend here in the country who can collect your goodie for you – then by all means, enter away!). But I’m counting my cookies before they come out of the oven! This giveaway is themed after my favourite show of the moment, Charmed; I’ve been re-watching all the seasons. (Contains a bit of magic, aye!)

What’s in the Box?

1. The Gypsy Necklace from Rosecraft by Roanna Fernandes (giggle-giggle, yeah, that’s me!). (This is a necklace holding a gypsy charm that I’ve created. There are a few more of the same variety, which I hope to sell – at some point.)

2. Message in a Bottle – A delicate vial (that looks a lot like a potion bottle) I bought at Al-Zamil Stores when I was in The Kingdom, a month before the last; of course, I’ll be adding a personal touch for that Charmed effect. (If you’re into that sort of thing!)

3. A Pointing Crystal Necklace from Lune by Sreesha Shetty. (Far by, my favourite! Ordered an amethyst crystal+quartz necklace from Sreesha Shetty for which this magical giveaway would have been incomplete without! Especially this ONE, that’s somewhat similar to the one they use on Charmed when scrying for magical beings, or witches.

4. Rustic wooden jewellery tray from Dhoop – An old-fashioned, wooden container shaped like the stump of a tree (well, somewhat); I’ve painted the containing hollow with matte gold for a magical effect. Would this be something that interests you?


The rules are simple! This giveaway is for Indian residents, only. International giveaways, commencing soon.

1. Comment below saying why you would want to win this (THIS ISN’T OPTIONAL, SADLY! Well, d-uh.), and tell me your current favourite supernatural/witchcraft-ish book/magazine/movie/show of the moment (this part is optional!). Okay, so my comments are moderated – don’t fret if you don’t see yours published immediately! (And please don’t forget to add your e-mail address in the details box so I have yours saved on my system; I’ll need it to get in touch.)

2. For brownie points – feel free (well, not really, hahaha!)  to ‘Like’ my page on Facebook, and follow me on Twitter! :-)

What happens after?

I’ll choose ONE winner in exactly two weeks, from now – save the date – June 24 is when this contest comes to an end! As soon as I announce the winner – which will either be on my Facebook or Twitter page (and through an e-mail, perhaps) –  please write back to me with your postal address and phone number right away. I’ll mail the package across then, immediately through speed post!

The “Fourth Year of Festivities” is yours for taking! Giveaway-gift-makin’. Good luck!

Something Wicca This Way Comes

183 Something Wicca This Way Comes

Last week, when I was at the Forever 21 store at Oberoi Mall – I spotted this gem! Literally. It was the last piece left, and in fact, this necklace was draped over a mannequin… I think I just got lucky! It reminds me of the scrying crystal that Prue, Piper, Phoebe (and Paige) used to use (to look for each other) on the TV show, Charmed. Because I started watching the show again right from the beginning, very recently, I feel even more taken with magical myths and protective charm jewellery of all kinds… This is another one I’ve added to my personal collection.

Do you like such pieces, too? I would then recommend that you check out Accessorize, Etsy, Lune (one of my very favourites) and Promod (They are very underrated especially when it comes to jewellery, I ♥ what they curate+stock!) for similar pieces. Look for some crystal+quartz type jewellery at Forever 21, too in a few weeks from now. I know that there will be variations, if not an identical pendant. Good luck!

For the uninitiated (and those of you who aren’t that big on Charmed, or haven’t watched the series at all), the interwebz defines scrying as the practice of looking into a translucent ball or other materials with the belief that things can be seen, such as spiritual visions, and less often for purposes of divination or fortune-telling. The most common media used are reflective, translucent, or luminescent substances such as crystals, stones, glass, mirrors, water, fire, or smoke.

The Enchanted Typewriter

181 The Enchanted Typewriter

Do you like reading these posts? Do they help you discover typefaces you’ve never heard of, before? I’m thinking if I should do two more posts like these, and then discontinue the series thereafter. So… Yes, do tell me! How are you? I’ve been in a bit of a mess, in my head, generally. And I’m trying to make decisions, but I suck at those. I thought I would evade all this overall bad energy for a bit, and write here, instead. :-)

Ooh, and if you’re wondering… What’s with the post’s title? Um, so I’ve been watching a lot of Charmed lately. Racile (she’s my little sister) got me hooked on to the series when I was in The Kingdom for a mini-Easter break (the past two weeks). There’s a giveaway to watch out for, that’s somewhat related to my mentioning of the Charmed series so yes, if you’re into that kind of thing – you must keep reading! I’ll be posting about it, much sooner than you think. Okay, bye now, and yes, I hope you like the ones I’ve picked out for The Typeface Series, this week.
