I’m so humbled that you want to know more about me and my blog. First of all, thanks for being here.
I’m Scarlet – not my real name though, my real name is Daniele-, thirty-something years old. Born on February 20th in Brazil. I am a proud “mother” of a lovely German Spitz called Misty & a stray Ginger Cat called Sunny. I’ve lived in Brazil for 19 years and moved to the Netherlands in 2004. I’m currently living in a tiny village in Denmark “in the middle of nowhere” with my boyfriend. Here is a picture of Sunny & Mist:
I started this blog as a way to share a bit about my life with bipolar disorder, and anxiety but also everything from games (I love playing all kinds of games such as Elder Scrolls Online, Apex Legends, and horror games like Ghost Watchers, Phasmophobia, Dying Light, Resident Evil Series…), movies and music to food, fashion, beauty, home decor, and witchcraft. Yes, I’m a witch.
Since I was a little girl, I knew I was different. I have a strong connection with nature – trees, and plants are my companions. I consider myself a “Green Witch”. Being a green witch is really just an umbrella term for the kind of witchcraft I do. In my world, labels are interchangeable. Green witchcraft is a story of herbs, gemstones, plant allies, and flower fairies! ♥
At the heart of everything I do, I love working with herbs and plants! Crafting herbal spells and herbal spell remedies brings me a sense of calm, peace, and belonging. I spent many years hiding who I was for fear of judgment and ridicule from peers and loved ones. My practice was private and, admittedly, secretive. I studied and conjured when no one was watching or around. Then I turned 25…and something happened. Something changed in me. I came out of the broom closet. My life was transformed by my desire to live my truth and be my true magical self. And I’ve never looked back since!
A story as old as time, I’ve been practicing Eclectic Witchcraft (more focused on Green & Kitchen witchcraft) for nearly two decades! You might enjoy my journey into witchcraft to learn how to begin your journey as a witch. What I love about witchcraft (besides everything!) is that it’s always fun and interesting and there’s always more to learn!
Connecting with nature is more than a walk through the woods. It’s about being conscious of seasonal changes, becoming attuned to the plants around us, and relearning the natural language we’ve forgotten through our modern lives.
Speaking of more to learn, did you know that this blog has been blessed? I put a blessing on this blog so that it brings charms, blessings, and secret surprises to whoever encounters it and stops by for a read!
I hope to provide you with a foundation to rewild yourself by aligning with the cycles of the seasons and to help you in discovering the energies of the seasonal cycles.
Writing, Content Creation & Gaming
When I was a kid we didn’t even have the internet yet. It wasn’t until my early high school years (2001-ish) that the internet came into mainstream existence, and I started building my first (terrible) website using my father’s education (he was a teacher and had a Ph.D. in math and physics) website as a host, the name was “Planet Teen” which consisted mostly on news about boy bands ( I used to love Backstreet Boys lol) and fashion trends. Later in 2004, I purchased my own domain+web hosting and created a weblog called “DannyKitty(dot)com” which consisted of a bunch of pixel gifs, blogging about my daily life, sharing movies or series I’ve watched, passion for cute stuff like Hello Kitty (that’s why the name Danny Kitty lol) and other silly stuff. My blog was quite “famous” in Brazil for some years until I decided to end the blog due to personal reasons. Also, YouTube became “popular” and there was a lot of immigration from having a written blog to making videos and being a YouTuber, and I never ever felt comfortable making videos. I don’t really like seeing myself on camera. Writing is natural for me, I love writing.
There are many things that bring joy to my life, but I feel that playing video games is one of my biggest passion. Besides the part where games can help us distress from our daily life and help add excitement, I find that some games teach us important lessons in life. Don’t believe me? You can read some articles online like this one: “Top 3 Life Lessons We Can Learn From Video Games – Forbes”
First of all, games urge us to strive and persevere. In computer games, there is always the objective of achieving a certain level of greatness in the virtual world. To achieve that we have to play hard, put in the effort, and lots of time before being able to attend that level of superiority.
The first video game I played on a computer was a game called “Lode Runner” (you can play it here), then The Sims, Need for Speed, and Tomb Raider… Then I got my first console, a Sega Master System ^_^ which I had to share with my little brother so we could play Super Mario, Mortal Kombat, and Alex Kidd…So many good memories ♥.
Now in my thirties, I own a gaming computer with the latest tech that I can afford (you can see my gaming setup here).

I don’t care when people say I’m not that young anymore to play games (How old do you think the people that make the game you love playing are?)… I will continue to slay dragons, explore the universe, hunt for mythological artifacts and places, save the planet (sometimes the galaxy or universe too) from some extravagant threat, build and conquer empires, travel through time, defy Gods and Demons, go way out of my way to save some princess I don’t even know, or barely know, kill zombies… or you could say play video games until they pry my cold dead “old” hands off the keyboard! ❤️

Frequently Asked Questions
Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff, is one of the most powerful characters in all of the Marvel comics. As she’s able to wield what’s referred to as chaos magic, she has the ability to alter the very fabric of reality to suit her needs.
I’ve been using Scarlet Witch/Scarlet itchie (because without the “ie” wasn’t available lol) since years. I always loved how strong and badass Scarlet Witch is in the comic books and movies.
Moody Witch – A bit self-explanatory. Moody – I have Bipolar Disorder, so my mood constantly changes depending on various situations, triggers etc. So I created this blog to be my personal little space to write about whatever I like and also to “vent”, help others cope with their mental health as I cope with mine.
Yes! I have a brother. He is 3 years younger than me.
I speak Portuguese (I’m brazilian), English, Spanish, Dutch (lived in the Netherlands from 2004-2017 and I have a Dutch Nationality), currently learning Danish.
Im a tiny person. 160 cm = 5’2.99.
I have a few but asperges and artichoke are in the list. I also don’t like when people use raisins or anything, caramelized potatos and fruits in salad.
Oh dear, I have so many! Forgive me, you might find me a terrible human being, but I assure you I’m nice ◝(ᵔᵕᵔ)◜
So here we go:
Micro-management, loud chewing or drinking, being late, interrupting, talking during a movie, people talking to me while using headphones, poor driving etiquette, being stared at, people that says “No Offense” after saying something insulting (so rude!), the word “literally or like” used in every sentence, pessimism, being told to “Calm Down” (you don’t tell a latina to calm down!!), people that sneezes or cough without covering their mouth, nosey questions, bragging, having to repeat myself, bad grammar. So much more, I think I will make a post about this, might be fun to write it ˶ᵔ ᵕ ᵔ˶
Definitely a night owl!
Yes, I do!
Potamophobia – fear of rivers or running water.
Thalassophobia – persistent and intense fear of deep bodies of water such as the sea, oceans, or lakes.
Katsaridaphobia – fear of roaches. I can’t even see a picture of it. NOOO!!!
Chilopodophobia – fear of Centipedes. Same reason as roaches. Why so many legs? Why so creepy looking?
Acrophobia – fear of heights
I don’t like clowns and I don’t like staring at mirrors so much, It’s like something else is in there staring at me. If I look in the mirror for too long I start having “hallucinations” like my face distorting and turning into a “monster” or I see an unknown person, monsters… I try to avoid it, specially in the night.
I have six tattoos, biggest one is a wolf – right arm. There’s a picture of it on my Instagram.
Stop caring about what other people think.
Create boundaries. Be confident.
Live in the moment.
Don’t let anyone ever tell you your dreams are out of reach.
Celebrate your victories in life… even the small ones.
Don’t wait to learn from your own mistakes. Watch, listen, and learn from the mistakes of others.
Nobody ever made history by playing it safe. Be bold!
Yes. Wednesday Addams – The Addams Family ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Green Witches are aligned with plants, healing, natural energy, creativity, Mother Earth, and the universe.
From there, personally, being a Green Witch means having a powerful connection to forests, trees, stones, streams, storms, the four elements, and the spirit within every other being. A belief in the sacredness of all that exists within nature, from seashells and mountains to wrens, wolves and humans. And an appreciation and honouring of the cosmic energy that connects us all.
– As such I care about what I grow, eat, use and re-use.
– I do not harm, disturb or disrespect animals. I see them as my friends, companions, and as entitled to their life as I am to mine.
– I do not take what is already in its place of belonging.
– I study and work with the healing of herbs, nature, natural movement, the power within, and the power of connecting to the whole.
– My favourite place is deep in the forest or on any other path that is least travelled.
– And I love the magick, adventure, and discovery that is found as I go ever-deeper along the way.
No. This is a common misconception regarding all witches that has been largely promoted by the Christian church and today’s media. I don’t believe in the devil or any manifestation of evil. However, a small percentage of witches do, so it isn’t an invalid question.
I feel the earth breathe with life and the energy all objects, living and nonliving, vibrate with. I find I am awe-struck and humbled when I stare up at the night sky, take a walk in the woods, or watch my garden grow. I find my spirituality in the world around me and take deep comfort in science but I also believe in higher powers, including a god or goddess.
Study, Practice, Find a Coven (or not, you can also be a solitary witch)
Yes! Of course I do believe in God ♥
Know the Risks
Witchcraft isn’t just fun and games; perks like hexes and love spells can come with a price. The infamous Salem witch trials may seem far in the past, but the persecution of witches (or those suspected of witchcraft) continues today.
Choose your path
There’s no shortage of types of witchcraft, meaning there’s also no shortage of choices for an aspiring witch. Rather than get overwhelmed, get your bearings by having at least a basic understanding of witchcraft terms. Do your research. The internet and blogs are wonderful and there are a lot of interesting books about it.
