Sleeping Beauty (2014) - review and spoilers

Hello! We all know the story of Sleeping Beauty, so there isn't much to spoil you with. Perhaps the only spoilers I could give are related to how did the Evil Witch trick the princess into touching the spindle. But that would take away from the magic of the story, wouldn't it? I will spoil you by saying that this movie seems to have been quite poorly received, and you can't really find a Wikipedia page about it. Wait, what? But everything has a Wiki page... well, my dear reader, if you find the Wiki page for this particular movie, I will have to come back and change this part - until then... This...

made at home - sewing book review

Hello! If you read my blog over at Obscure Journey, you'd already know i started sewing or making clothes and not only. Of course, i needed [and wanted] a few books to guide me on how to make certain items and not only. below you can see a part of the collection of books i had at some time in 2019/2020. I gave away a few of these books, as i'm not interested in ALL the possible crafts that use needles and thread or yarn. "made at home - a guide for simple sewing" is a book by Lisa Stickley, intended for those who just start sewing. The book is full of step-by-step instructions on how to make a...

Elderflower tea

Hello there! What do you prefer to drink, out of these 2 choices: tea or coffee? Well, personally, i like coffee more than tea, but i won't refuse a cup of nice warm and flavorful tea. Spoiler alert: this kind of tea is not what i'll present you with this time around. In this entry, i'll talk about tea made from elderflowers. yes, you read that right! Elderflower goes by the scientific name of , and in Romania tea is made out of it. This tea is part of the natural remedies people would use when something bothers them. According to this page, this tea is used to treat the first symptoms...

Hi everyone! This entry is a bit different because i won't be reviewing anything in particular. Instead, i want to present you with most of the court cards from 2 old playing card decks. The decks and better said the cards were found in an apartment belonging to my partner's great-aunt (? i think this was the relationship). Said aunt is no longer with us, as i related more in this blog post. I don't have many things to say about the cards i found and took photos of, specifically to share with everyone here. Enjoy the images! I'm sharing these images because i'm wondering why did they stop printing...

NOPE (2022) - review, spoilers

Hello, everyone! I just watched the new movie NOPE. i'm speechless. This movie is .... oh, gosh! Short backstory of WHY we decided to watch it Steven Yeun plays in it. He was made famous by the now infamous The Walking Dead show and the grotesque way JD Morgan's character (Negan) killed Steven's character, named Glenn. I used the pronouns "we" and "I" because I'm referring to my partner and I. However, we watched the movie separately, for no particular reason. As usual, I'll share the poster and then some spoilers [hopefully not too many] will follow, as well as its official trailer after that....

Shadowscapes Tarot - Knight of Wands

Shadowscapes Tarot - Knight of Wands

Hello, my lovelies! It is time to have a look at a new tarot card, the Knight of Wands from the Shadowscapes Tarot deck. First things first: What do we see? The main color of the card is yellow. Other colors are green, and some purple in the lower right corner. We see a male figure riding a mythical lion with 2 horns. These horns look like those of the gazelles. The lion is male, and we know this because of his large mane. The mythical lion is the one standing out more than the knight. The rider wears shiny armor and holds a very long and thin spear. Both the lion and the rider look away from us,...

Il Bisbetico Domato (1980) movie impressions and spoilers

What was that, you say? Il Bisbetico Domato can be translated into either one of these: The Taming of the Shrew or The Taming of the Scoundrel Here we are again, talking about a foreign movie. This time we have an Italian movie from 1980, if the title wasn't enough of a hint. I'm not particularly sure which is the correct translation of the Italian title. However, The Taming of the Scoundrel makes more sense when you watch the movie. I'll say this movie is more of a romantic comedy, and you can read a bit more about it on its English Wikipedia page, from where I borrowed the picture seen below....

Hello, all!! Back in July 2015, we found this cream-cheese spread in the supermarket. Besides the well-known Philadelphia cream cheese, we didn't have many options in this department, so this was sort of a novelty. These days, we have many more to choose from, and i can't even recall if this specific product can still be found or not. This means, i sadly can't retake photos, so i have to use the old ones with the old marking on them. unless i edit them and make them look stolen. 😑 Remember my first food review? Well, it wasn't food, it was a delicious black tea.. and this thing right here is basically...

Halloween (2018) - review, spoilers

Hey readers! This entry is a bit different. Together with A, i went to see the latest installment of the Halloween franchise. I thought I could post a review of the movie too, just like I used to. However, there's a twist to this review: A wrote it, and not me. This will be obvious as you continue reading the entry. I will put her words in orange as she mixes spoilers with her thoughts on the movie. If you wonder what I thought of the movie, my answer is simple: i pretty much agree with everything she says. I liked it, and i can't say there was something particularly disturbing... maybe the beginning...

Shadowscapes Tarot – Seven of Cups

Shadowscapes Tarot – Seven of Cups

Hello again for another divination guide session. Or something like that. Some cards are easier to interpret compared to others. The Seven of Cups in the Shadowscapes Tarot deck is one of the easy ones. Or is it? What do we see? In the Shadowscapes deck, the Seven of Cups is mostly blue in color. There is also a bit of white and a bit of golden/yellow. Almost in the middle, we see a couple standing on a cliff. The cliff seems to be trailing off into a faraway mountain cliff. This mountain has a castle on it. There is a closer mountain with another castle at its top. The female figure looks up to...
