7 Great Phantom Menace Era Adventures

Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace is still a lightning rod of controversy for fans, even 20 years after its release (the film celebrates that anniversary this Sunday). And though The Last Jedi seems to be taking its place as the preeminent controversial Star Wars movie, the fact is, love it or hate it, The Phantom Menace rebirthed the galaxy far, far away for a new generation.

But even if you fall into the camp that doesn’t particularly enjoy Episode I, there are still some stories from the early Prequel era of Star Wars, ~30 BBY (Before Battle of Yavin) to be specific, that are incredible and simply wouldn’t exist without the characters, locales, or themes of The Phantom Menace.

Adventures in Caffeine: How Much Is Too Much?

cups of coffee

Here’s kind of a weird question for today: what is your relationship like with caffeine? Have you found that you needed to back away from caffeine as you got older — or are you still drinking coffee and more at your usual levels? I’ve been pondering whether I need to back away from caffeine, so I’m curious…

For my $ .02, I’ve long known that if I drink a lot of caffeine after noon things do not go well — I kind of feel like I can cartwheels. (Spoiler alert: I can not do cartwheels. I can handle lesser amounts of caffeine in the afternoons, though, like black tea or Diet Coke.) But recently I realized that my afternoons are way more productive than my mornings — and wondered if perhaps this is because I always drink coffee first thing in the morning. So I’ve been trying to ween myself off caffeine, cutting back from two big cups in the morning to just half a cup some mornings. I’ve tried tea a few times as well, both as a “second cup” as well as my only cup. Thus far I’m surprised how little effect it has — I definitely don’t NEED a ton of coffee in the morning, but I prefer the taste of coffee to breakfast tea. In my mind I see a ton of benefit from those first few sips of coffee — clearing away the cobwebs! setting my intentions! starting my day! — but anything I drink after that is mere habit, comfort, or taste. (But I’m definitely not a snob about coffee — I kind of prefer my Folgers.)

{related: the best teas}

How about you, ladies — what’s your preferred source of caffeine, and do you have a routine for caffeine? Do you view caffeine like a medicine (man do I need a boost right now!) or any other food (I enjoy a cappuccino after dinner if the restaurant is known for them!)?

Where to experience the ultimate safari adventures


Imagine waking up to the sound of a lion, or looking across the plains while you eat breakfast, to see a giraffe eating her own breakfast from the trees. Seeing animals roam around or even hunt right in front of you is something that is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and a safari is usually on most people’s’ bucket lists! So, if you want to see the wild in action, where is best?

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

When you imagine a safari, what you are likely picturing are the endless plains of the Serengeti National Park. It is the site of the start of the annual great migration where over two million wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle travel from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara between May and December, and if you time your trip to experience this, you won’t regret it! You may also be lucky enough to spot lions, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, crocodiles, baboons, and a whole lot more. No wonder this is the most popular safari destination in the world.

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

Kruger National Park, South Africa

If you want to get up close and personal with the Big Five (elephants, lions, rhino, leopard, and buffalo) then Kruger National Park is a pretty good option! There are so many options to tailor your safari perfectly to what you want, for example, you could stay in a tent for an authentic experience, or upgrade to a luxury lodge for a more romantic trip. You can choose a jeep, walking, boat or even hot air balloon safari or one tailored to children and families.

Chobe National Park, Botswana

One really popular option for Chobe National Park is a photographic safari, where your guide is also a professional photographer and who will teach you the tips and tricks to capturing the best photographs of these incredible animals such as zebras, buffalo, elephants, lions, and endangered African painted dogs. There are some fantastic bird species in Chobe, so alongside your game drives, be sure to check the skies too!

Chobe National Park, Botswana

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

Set across over 1,500 square kilometers, the Masai Mara National Reserve is a fantastic place to visit for a safari adventure. Over 40% of Africa’s larger mammals live here, from lions and leopards to elephants and zebra. Not to mention, of course, the incredible Great Migration which ends up here. If you visit in the dry season, between June and October, you are likely to catch some of the migration before it heads back to the Serengeti National Park, as well as a whole host of other incredible animals.

A safari will be an incredible experience that you will never forget. It’s so unpredictable, and you never know what you are going to see – photographs just won’t do it justice. Whichever park you choose, all you really need is a knowledgeable guide to get the most out of it. Although a lot of parks will let you do a safari on your own, it’s better (and safer!) to go with a reputable guide. So, get booking! But beware: they can be quite addictive…

Outdoor adventures to enjoy across America


We don’t want to toot our own horn, but America is one of the best places in the world when it comes to outdoor adventures. There are so many different environments, from beaches to mountain tops, lakes to volcanos, and everything in between and with each place comes something new to see and do. Whether you are a seasoned outdoor explorer or someone who is usually a couch potato but wants to try something new, there is something for everyone! Here are what we think are the best outdoor adventures to enjoy across America.

Hot air balloon in Albuquerque

Seeing the world from the sky is pretty incredible whatever way you do it, but the most relaxing (And arguably romantic!) is via a hot air balloon. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in October is a fantastic time to go as you will be surrounded by the unusual sight of hundreds of other balloons, but even if you head up on a different day, you’ll find a tranquil yet exciting experience unlike any other.

Go diving in the Florida Keys

From one extream to the other, head under the sea to explore some amazingly unique attractions, such as abandoned shipwrecks and stunning coral reefs. The best time to do a diving expedition is between April and July as you will miss the hurricane season peak and the water will be warm. Head out with a guide to make the most of the experience.

Hike around the Pacific Northwest’s National Parks

Every National Park is worth a visit, especially if you are a fan of the great outdoors, however, some of the best and superlative are based in the Pacific Northwest so if you want to hit a few in one trip, then this is the area to head to! Crater Lake National Park in Oregon boasts the deepest lake in the US, whereas North Cascades National Park is home to stunning untouched wilderness.

Camp along the Pacific Coast Highway

The PCH is a fantastic road trip where the terrain seems to change constantly, and there’s always something to see or do. The best way to really enjoy this wonder is to camp along the way, stopping off to explore places such as Malibu, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, and LA. Beach campsites are cheap, but the memories will be priceless!

Hit the slopes in Colorado

If you want to spend some time cruising down some varied terrain, on a snowboard or skis, there is nowhere better in the US than Colorado. With stunning views, a range of slopes ideal from beginners to experts and resorts to suit all budgets, Colorado is the place to be if you’re looking for some snow adventure.

If this post doesn’t get your itching to go on an adventure, then there is something wrong with you! You don’t have to be super sporty to try some of these adventures; all you need is an adventurous spirit and some enthusiasm. So, what are you waiting for?!

Here’s how to copy Sabrina Spellman’s goth berry lip on <em>Chilling Adventures of Sabrina</em>

With season two of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina officially available now—have we lost you to a Netflix binge yet?—we’re pumped for not only brand-new episodes of satanic witchery, but for even more drool-worthy makeup looks, too.

The show’s head makeup artist, Candice Stafford-Bridge, recently spoke to Allure and dished on Sabrina’s now-signature look. Specifically, the dark lipstick that’s become her go-to.

Since Sabrina joined the Church of Night, we’ve seen her in a dark berry matte lip, which Stafford-Bridge explained is Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour in Very Prive. The $ 90 lipstick (yup) is the only dramatic part of Kiernan Shipka‘s look on the show, an intentional move on the makeup team’s part. “She can raise the dead, but I wanted to be true to a 16-year-old high school girl and make her makeup believable,” Stafford-Bridge told Allure.

If shelling out $ 90 for a lipstick sounds less than magical to you, shop four dupes for Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour in “Very Prive” below.

Real Witches Judge the Witch Culture of ‘The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’

If you’re watching The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina on Netflix, you’ll know that it’s a very funny, occasionally petrifying, ultra-progressive, extremely emotional TV drama. Well, that’s what we think. But what do actual witches think about the way their culture is represented in the show? We pulled together a coven of witches to tell us what’s what…

Please introduce yourselves and explain your relationship to witchcraft and the occult…

“My name is Tania Ahsan. I’ve been a practising witch for 25 years and was previously the editor of Prediction magazine, a now-defunct occult magazine. I write the witchcraft column for Kindred Spirit magazine.”

“My name is Evelyn Hollow, I was raised with a mixed background of Celtic Pagan beliefs & Mediterranean Roma blood. As an adult, I obtained a Master’s degree in Psychological Research specialising in Paranormal Psychology. I have been an academic of the occult for more than six years and was a lecturer of Psychology for the last few of those years.”

“And my name is Anna McKerrow. I’m a fiction writer and eclectic Pagan witch. My work is always about witchcraft, and I’m passionate about representing modern, contemporary witches in realistic and thoughtful ways.”

So the new Sabrina, let’s start with what you think the show did well… and what it didn’t.

Anna: “I’ve read so much comment about the new Sabrina show from other witches. I think most of us are enjoying it for what it is: a fun TV drama. If you want to talk about realism… well, someone walking in the woods chanting to themselves or meditating or even a group ritual isn’t going to fit this kind of high-action, stylised TV format. Witches and those following alternative, broadly Pagan/polytheistic or pantheistic beliefs often tend to be philosophical about the inaccurate ways that they and their spiritual beliefs are depicted in fiction, partly because the stereotypes are so pervasive, partly because of an attitude that runs ‘whatever — allows me to stay under the radar’ and, I would say, a mindfulness of the still-recent repeal in the UK of the witchcraft laws in the 1950s.”


Sabrina

Tania: “There are Satanic witches but it is only one type of witchcraft. A far larger sect of witchcraft is Wicca, the way devised by Gerald Gardner in the 1960s. But I’m not surprised that they decided to go with the Satanic type. This seems to be a bit of a wet dream for the Bible Belt and is the antithesis of the feminist witchcraft that is currently seeing a huge revival. The idea that a woman can only have power when she is an evil cannibalistic Satan-worshipping minx is one that has been put about to keep women down. It breeds fear of witchcraft and the occult. The salt baths to cleanse energetically is pretty accurate though and some witches work with animal guides. Although I don’t think they call them ‘familiars’ as this is again something that is rooted in the literature of a tradition that persecutes and wilfully misunderstands us.”

Evelyn: “I think it’s an improvement on the original series. I liked the original series, but it was more about the pitfalls of being a weird teenage girl than it was about witchcraft. I think this one is one of the better paranormal horror shows to come out in recent years. I also applaud its use of diverse casting and inclusion of important narratives that intersect race, gender, and socioeconomics.”


Sabrina-Spellman
Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman in the series.

Anna:Sabrina is good in my view because there has been a reasonable amount of research done in the detail; cleansing bad energy/curses with salt, the fact that worship takes place outside in nature, the reference to the historic, inherited trauma of the witch trials and how that still affects women now. How we still feel and fear that punishment for standing in our power. I believe they have witch and occultist consultants for the show, which is a good thing. I also like that Sabrina practices magic in ‘ordinary’ ways too – forming a support group for the girls at her school, doing things in her world that makes change in positive ways. Magic is the changing of one’s experience of the world in a beneficial way. Witches know — or should know — that writing good CVs, voting and earning money are all necessary and effective things as well as journeying, meditating, chanting and being in nature.”

What would be your main criticism of the show?

Evelyn: “Perhaps the Hollywood glamourizing of witchcraft as high-drama rituals involving getting naked and spilling blood in the woods under a full moon. Everyday rites are more small moments of ritual crafted in order to create spaces that have positive effects on our mental health and restore feelings of control to our lives.”


Sabrina-still

Anna: “For me, the main problem is the Beast as Sabrina’s witch family’s deity or spiritual leader. Now, that is not to say that there aren’t witches who might work with the Lucifer energy and do what is called ‘shadow work’, which is absolutely nothing to do with the schlocky Hammer Horror devil stuff we’ve all been brought up on. Shadow work is the absolutely necessary healing and recognition of our full selves by loving all that we are; the balance of ourselves as perfectly imperfect beings. The ‘Beast’ is, as witches see it, also not a problem — that’s Aleister Crowley’s naming of the sexual life force of humanity; the horns of the wild horned gods of nature. The main problem with these terms and representations is the Christian duality of light/good and dark/bad that lies under them. This duality is at odds with a witch’s worldview, which tends more to the holistic and embraces the dark as a necessary complement to the light.”

Tania: “I think it is actually quite racist. Why is good always white or light? Why is evil always dark or black? The fact is there is no easy dualism in the way that it is described. The reason it has played out this way is that monotheism needs to find a way to suppress the Paganism that went before so the Horned God, the representation of the male divine, was co-opted as the image of the Devil and witches were all meant to be butt-kissing this goat-legged fallen angel. They absolutely hate that instead women might have freedom and power and so they have to attribute it to a male overlord. Yeah, good luck with that.”

Can you think of any other areas of pop culture where witchcraft has been covered well?

Tania: “Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comics had a character called Thessaly who I felt was an accurate depiction of a witch. She played by rules that weren’t those that we attribute to either a hero or a villain, again she moved beyond the duality and basically just did what worked and made her way in the world in the manner she wanted. She was also depicted as a very plain-looking bespectacled woman who was quiet and watchful. She definitely did not wear a Grand Puba cape and put up a website with many different colours and fonts and a predilection for writing IN CAPITALS. Another top description is Gandalf in Lord of the Rings; he feels fear and goes through a journey in which he faces his greatest fear and emerges stronger and better. Of course, his hair is all white afterwards so the trope of white being right is still there, but props to him for facing his demon.”


the-craft-girls-walking-with-lightning and sparks
The Craft.

Evelyn:The Craft is one of the better displays of young women developing their path via witchcraft. The kind of spirit invocation and binding practices they use are relatively common in covens.”

Anna: “I always enjoy The Wicker Man, to be honest – apart from the grisly end, it’s quite nice to imagine what a free-spirited Pagan island might look like! And I liked Willow Rosenberg as a witch in Buffy because she learns to be a Wiccan witch. It’s very ’90s but she’s a normal girl, she’s a lesbian, she studies, she gets things wrong, she’s part of online witch groups. It went quite supernatural with the witch storyline in the end but the beginning was good. Oh, and Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon is a hugely popular book among witches because, though it’s fantasy and set in the King Arthur myth, it was one of the first — and still very few — fiction works to celebrate the empowerment of the goddess on Morgan, the witch character. It shows her route to power, her learning her witchcraft as a priestess of the moon and her adoration of the goddess.”

Thank you for your time! Before we go, tell our readers anything you’d like to plug…

Anna: “Thank you! My current book Daughter of Light and Shadows is available on Amazon…”

Tania: “My insta is @Tania_The_Witch and my website is taniaahsan.co.uk — there’s an e-book of candle spells on there isf you fancy having a go yourself!”

Evelyn: “I’m a resident author on a publication called Esoterica Zine, which may be of interest to anyone interested in the obscure. In fact, the next issue to be released is themed around witchcraft! Issues can be accessed at https://gumroad.com/esotericazine Other than that my Twitter, @_EvelynHollow is the best place to find me!”

41 Spooky ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Details You Probably Missed

WARNING: This articles contains spoilers for the first season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Proceed at your own risk, witches.

If you know what’s good for you, you’ve binged all of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and are ravenous for more. Even though it’ll probably be a while until we get more episodes, we have some delicious morsels to tide you over.

Back in September, we got to visit everyone’s favorite Greendale witch up on set in Vancouver and chat with all the brilliant creative minds behind the show — from cast members to behind-the-scenes crew. Here’s everything we learned, and everywhere you can literally find the devil in the details.

Look Out For Horror All the Horror Movie References

1. The doors in Father Blackwood’s office are the same design as the iconic doors from the 1977 horror movie Suspiria.

2. The Spellman Family’s living room ceiling is also a nod to Suspiria.


Suspiria Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
The Spellman’s ceiling and ‘Suspiria.’

3. All of the artwork in the Academy on Unseen Arts was supplied by horror icon Clive Barker. Over 150 of his pieces are on display throughout the show.

4. Father Blackwood has a table and stools in his office that, when pushed together, form the same shape as the Hellraiser box.


Hellraiser Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Father Blackwood’s office and ‘Hellraiser.’

The Crew Used Real Magic On Set

5. When someone on the set of Chilling Adventures sneezes, everyone says “Hail Satan” instead of “bless you.”

6. The crew cast real protection spells around the set. If you look closely at the Spellman house, you might spot a real German protection spell engraved on the wall and a protection spell on the floor.


Spells Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Spell engravings from the set.

7. Sabrina’s signature color is red — it signifies power, femininity, and fierceness. Production designer Lisa Soper did a tarot card reading for every character in the show to determine their signature color palette, and for Sabrina, she drew the Magician card.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
The Magician tarot card and Sabrina Spellman.

Pay Attention to the Colors

8. The witch world is associated with brighter colors throughout the show, and humans are associated with more muted and mundane colors.

9. There are small touches of red throughout the show that are meant to guide Sabrina on her journey.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Touches of red guide Sabrina.

10. The juxtaposition of Sabrina in her red clothing and the surrounding green woods of Greendale is also a subtle nod to Alfred Hitchcock’s use of the two colors.

11. Hilda and Zelda’s shared bedroom colors mirror their personalities: Zelda’s side is purple (symbolizing her fight to uphold the Church of Night’s established structure and rules), and Hilda’s side is green (symbolizing her progressive nature and ability to let things grow and flourish).

The Spellman House is a Work of Art

12. The shoes on the wall outside of Zelda and Hilda’s room all belong to Zelda. Every time Zelda casts a hex on someone, she binds the magic to a shoe and places it on the wall for safe keeping. As long as the shoe remains there, the person remains hexed.


Zelda Chilling Adventures of Sabrina hexed shoes
Zelda's hexed shoe wall.

13. There’s a movie poster for Whatever Happened to Baby Jane in Ambrose’s room, which is a sardonic nod to his aunts.

14. If you look closely at Sabrina’s bedroom mirror, you’ll see pictures of Harvey as well as the Tarot cards for judgement (signifying that she’s having trouble deciding which path to take) and the Queen of Wands (signifying the decision to finally embrace her own power).

15. Sabrina’s dollhouse includes an exact replica of her bedroom.

The inside of Sabrina’s doll house.

16. There’s a super creepy monster watermark on the hallway wall that leads to the embalming room.



17. The Spellman House is designed to appear more normal in the front, and then get gradually more magical and witchy as you get further away from where Hilda, Zelda, and Ambrose meet clients.

18. Nature is a huge theme throughout the show, and is meant to symbolize rebirth and earth taking over.

19. If you look closely, you’ll notice that Hilda and Zelda share a chair in the Spellman Mortuary office.

Hilda and Zelda's shared chair.

20. The living room wallpaper is the Gibson Girl, Charles Dana Gibson’s feminine ideal from the 1800s.

21. The Spellman’s front door is modeled after the door from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel The House of Seven Gables — complete with the signature iron spikes, but updated and painted in Sabrina’s signature color.

22. Sabrina’s Dark Baptism was based on Goya’s famous “Witches’ Sabbath” painting, which hangs in the living room.

Sabrina's Dark Baptism and the Goya painting.

23. Everything in the Spellman House is built to be slightly off-kilter — from the walls to the staircase. It was a huge challenge for the crew to build.

24. Most of the paintings in the show are meant to reflect the theme of feminine strength, including “The Magic Circle” by John William Waterhouse hanging near the Spellman’s kitchen.

‘The Magic Circle’ by John William Waterhouse.

The Devil’s in the Details

25. Every object on Miss Wardwell’s fireplace is significant and has something to do with each episode — you can even see the Red Angel of Death.

26. Miss Wardwell has a specific doll for every single character in the show, and showrunner Roberto Augirre-Sacasa has a duplicate of every single one that’s been made.

Miss Wardwell's devilish dolls.

27. The crucifix over Miss Wardwell’s fireplace turns upside side once she becomes possessed by Madam Satan.

28. Zelda reads newspapers in different languages because she’s a brilliant badass.

Zelda's newspapers.

29. Susie’s room is full of nods to her gender identity and journey, including a quote from ‘Metamorphosis’ on her wall.

Susie's bedroom wall.

The Academy of Unseen Arts is Full of Surprises

30. All of the books in the Baxter High Library are real, but the books in the Academy of Unseen Arts are fake and built by hand.

31. The Academy was designed in the shape of a pentagram, and is meant to have an infinite number of hallways and rooms.

32. The big satan sculpture inside the Academy is modeled after Baphomet, the Church of Satan’s sigil.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Baphomet sculpture
The sculpture in the Academy of Unseen Arts.

33. The sculpture is made of foam and took three days to hand carve. It’s super light and you can pick it up pretty easily.

34. Father Blackwood has fully functional fireplaces on both sides of his desk to make it seem like he’s always surrounded by hellfire.

Father Blackwood Is A Lot Like…Meryl Streep?

35. Actor Richard Coyle based his portrayal of Father Blackwood on Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, as well as Paul Scofield in The Crucible and Charles Lawton in Spartacus. “There’s something clipped about all of those characters and they way they present themselves,” Coyle said. “And there’s something meticulous about Blackwood, and clean and reptilian and cold-blooded.”


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Father Blackwood
Meryl Streep in 'The Devil Wears Prada' and Father Blackwood.

36. Father Blackwood originally wore creepy false teeth, but Coyle said he “looked like Christopher Walken in Sleepy Hollow.”

37. According to actor Chance Perdomo, Ambrose’s style is equal parts “David Bowie and Jimmy Hendrix on a quiet day.”

38. Actor Michelle Gomez originally based her voice for Miss Wardwell on Maggie Smith, but was asked in her audition to try something else.

39. The prop heart Ambrose eats in Episode 5 was made of gelatin and corn syrup. Perdomo said it was “sticky and very chewy, sweet, both awesome and very unpleasant at the same time.”


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Ambrose heart
Ambrose eats his own yummy heart.

40. Actor Kiernan Shipka, like her on-screen character Sabrina, is super hard to scare. Shipka said, “That’s why I think I really like horror, because I feel like it’s almost testing me to a certain level.”

Try to Find the Secret Jughead Easter Egg

41. There’s a secret Jughead crown and message (“Jughead was here”) carved into the Fiction (R-V) bookshelf in the Baxter High Library. There’s also a piece of Aguirre-Sacasa’s old homework lying around somewhere in the library.
