I've spent all my free time for the past two weeks watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed. My best friend is Netflix and I’m dating a jar of Nutella. There’s something about that period of time between summer and autumn that’s always made me lazy. And fantastical themes have always been an obsession. At 11 I was waiting for my Hogwarts letter (Ravenclaw all the way) and at 21 I’m waiting to become the next Supreme on AHS:Coven. Although I really shouldn't at this stage, part of me will always believe in magic, the supernatural. The notion that there’s a whole different world out there just hiding behind the corner does something special to the imagination. 

That’s why black flows through everything I wear, the mystery is irresistible.
 I've been heavily inspired by the “Amish trend” that’s been making the rounds for the past year. A big black hat and hair lock (no it’s not real, yes it’s a bit weird) necklace add to the strangeness of the outfit. And I took photos at Regent Crescent because it’s where I’d be living in my magical world with my black cat and stack of dusty books. I know I’ll never have a wand or be able to read people’s minds, but when you think about it, everything is magic in a way. Why don’t trees talk? How do animals have instincts? Why are humans self aware? All unexplainable questions whose answers lie at the edge of our consciousness. And isn't that magic in the most literal sense, something we know is there, but is just out of reach.
