Modern day dating can be a right pain in the arse.

If you're sick of swiping through endless shirtless selfies and grainy snaps that could pass for mugshots on Tinder, then you're not alone.

Which is why one woman decided to take matters of her love life into her own – magical – hands.

Kate Goth, from Devon, is not your average 30-year-old woman – she also identifies a s a witch. 

Which, it turns out, comes in handy when she's looking for a fella.

She said, ''I had suffered a few heartbreaks and so wrote down in my journal that I was off men for good. I would only accept a man whose charm and wit were the equal of my imagined vision of actor Tom Hiddleston.''

Personally I'd go for Adam Driver but whatever you're into.

BECAUSE GUESS WHAT – yep, she match with her very own Tom Hiddleston two weeks later.

She said, ''Adam worked in a furniture warehouse and was living 25 miles away in Tavistock.''

But the use of her magical abilities didn't end there, oh no. 

So Kate, determined to get together with Adam, headed into the woods to use her magical abilities to bring them closer.

She said, ''I went to this tree in the woods just outside Totnes, where I often go to perform magic rituals. I began by casting a protection spell around me and then placed down on the ground some bread and herbs as an offering along with three coins.''

Each coin represented a desire – abundance in fortune, happiness for her friends and family and abundance in love.

And it worked. 

Kate said, ''A week later Adam was made redundant from his job in Tavistock and came over to live with me in Totnes. I later told him what I had done and he was a little shocked – but that was back in May 2018 and we joke about it now!''

Right, pass us the spell book and expect to see us with a Timothee Chalamet look-a-like ASAP.


The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been one of the most successful Netflix shows of 2018, and for good reason.

The show is a darker take on one of our old 1990s faves, Sabrina the Teenage Witch; a coming of age story about a seemingly normal adolescent girl with a horror-themed secret.

Netflix' take on the series has expanded the layers of witchcraft, introducing the occult, bloodlust and evil forces inherent in the human world. Sounds like our kind of vibe, doesn't it?

Kiernan Shipka totally cast her spell on the audience as Sabrina Spellman, and our new internet boyfriend Chance Perdomo had quite an effect as her cousin, Ambrose.

When we left Sabrina at the end of part one, she was forced to make her decision regarding the border between the human world and the world of witchcraft, with powerful results.

We already knew that season two was in the works, as ordered the series as a two-part deal. Thank the Gods for that.

Luckily for us, we don't have to wait long for season two to hit our screens, the trailer has been released and our gal Sabrina is most-definitely dark witch material.

Sporting her new icy blonde hair and cheeky grin, she's undoubtedly up to mischief. 

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 airs on April 5th on Netflix. Get ready, witches.



Halloween is only a few weeks away and as per usual we’re already fretting about our costumes. 

You could go as one of the Marvel superheroes or perhaps your favourite singer like Taylor Swift or Britney Spears- does anyone have a snake we can get a lend of?

Some of us will spend weeks, if not months, getting our costumes ready. We search Etsy for the perfect Halloween accessories, we scour through charity shops looking for costumes, we look to Instagram for Halloween makeup inspiration.

Then there’s the group of people who always seem to forget about Halloween until the day before when the shop shelves are bare and there isn’t a single witches hat or cowboy costume in sight.

Luckily, we’ve conjured up a list of 5 Halloween costumes you can literally make with a black bin bag.

1: The classic witch

Back in the day, every second kid on my road donned a black bin bag for Halloween. It was the go-to costume for parents who completely forgot about dress up day at school. We may not be in primary school anymore but this classic costume will never let you down.

All you need to do is cut out holes for your arms and head and maybe add a belt to give yourself some shape. Grab a witches hat and you’re sorted.

2: A bat

Simply cut bat wing shapes out of a black bag. Wear your favourite little black dress and secure the wings to the underside of your arm and the side of your body. It’ll look like you’re flying when you move your arms up and down. You can even make bat ears by cutting two triangles out of the bin bag and securing them onto a black Alice band.

3: Maleficent

Maleficent is one of our favourite Disney villains. Angelina Jolie brought the iconic Disney character to life in the live-action movie and you can mimic her iconic costume by simply using a few bin bags. To make the famous Maleficent horns all you’ll need is some newspaper, a headband and some sellotape. Twist the newspaper into cone-like shapes and place them onto the headband. Cover them both in bin bags and hey presto- you’re a Disney villain.

4: Cheerleader

Ready? Okay! We’ve all daydreamed about becoming a cheerleader. We blame the millions of times we watched Bring It On for this. Put a spooky twist on the American- sweetheart costume by making black pom-poms out of bin bags.  See the below tutorial on how to make the perfect pom poms and channel that team spirit.

5: Skeleton

It’s a stereotypical costume, but it works so well with the perfect face paint. All you need is a black bag and masking tape. Simply cut a hole at the top of the black bag for the head and one on either side for the arms. Lay the bag down flat and shape out the bones of the skeleton using the masking tape. Focus on creating an incredible makeup look like the one below and you’ll be bound to win the costume of the year.

Netflix has confirmed the release date for upcoming series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The Riverdale spin-off is set for release on October 26, just in time for the spookiest time of year- Halloween.

The first season of the thrilling show will feature ten episodes.

The spellbinding series will follow the life of young with Sabrina as she grapples with her newly discovered powers.

The dark coming-of-age tale will see Sabrina adapt to life as half-human and half-witch.

The new series will be a lot darker than the original show. It has taken major inspiration from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics rather than the original TV show.

Kiernan Shipka has been confirmed to play Sabrina, with Wonder Woman star Lucy Davis set to star as Aunt Hilda.

Taking on the role as Sabrina’s aunt Zelda is Homeland actress Miranda Otto.

However, the beloved aunts will be extremely different to the Helda and Zelda we know and love.
According to Variety, Zelda Spellman will be a stern and strict aunt to Sabrina. She believes that there is no greater honour than serving the Dark Lord.

Zelda is extremely protective of her young niece being described as the most disciplined member of the family.

Former Disney Channel star Ross Lynch will star as Harvey Kinkle, who has been described as, “the prince charming of this dark fairy tale.”

Netflix has ordered two seasons of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

We cannot wait to tune into the spooky series.



Meryl Streep is awesome, and she rocks every role. She even managed to make Mamma Mia watchable, which definitely deserves some props.

That’s why we can’t wait to see her play a witch in Disney’s Into the Woods this coming January. She’ll be starring alongside Johnny Depp and Emily Blunt – so this is guaranteed to be really, really good.

Check out the trailer!
