A Day In The Life: Practical Magic

I love Practical Magic. I must have been 13 when it came out. I was at the perfect age for it to become a cult classic in my life. I watch it every year when the leaves start to change colors.

Something about the many different characters of strong women, and how their shared heritage play a part in who they have become and the situations they have found themselves in. And, each woman deals with their tendency to be outcasts. It is all fascinating, and at 13 it completely blew my mind!

Not to mention the gorgeous setting of Washington San Juan Islands, a gorgeous Victorian mansion and great acting from all the characters (At 13 the acting was great.) The movie was based on the bestselling novel by Alice Hoffman. It is still a winning combination  - One of my goals in life is to have a home like the one they have in the movie.

So here's our day in the life of Practical Magic:

a day in the life in Practical Magic: what to wear and what to do (in no particular order) …

one. Throw on your favorite wool hat to keep the sun out of your eyes while you solve your mystery   

two. Grab your trusty notebook and journal to keep your thoughts in order. Just don't leave it lying around where the federal agent will find it.   

three. Turn on 'Coconut' and repeat while you toss back a few Tequila's  

four. You'll need somewhere to put your stuff when you're on the run 

five. shoes to handle any situation: running, driving across the state, looking fine while potentially meeting your soul mate  

six. Grab your latest apocrathy concoction to relieve your stressed out skin - trying to keep your sister's abusive, ghostly Ex from haunting you can cause anxiety

seven. It is probably best to keep your eye on the time - you have a midnight curfew afterall
