3 Reasons Why Practical Magic is the Best Fall Movie Ever.

Even though Fall is nearly over, we couldn’t help but post about one of our favorite things about Fall – Practical Magic. We ended up watching a movie called Practical Magic starring Sandra Bullock & Nicole Kidman a few weeks ago and it quickly became our favorite Fall movie. We are obsessed.

Here are 3 reasons why Practical Magic is the greatest Fall movie ever:

1. THE HAIR.

Oh. my. gosh.
If you are looking for hair inspiration, look no further – you have to watch this movie.
I was literally mesmerized by Nicole Kidman’s hair during the whole movie.
Both Sandra Bullock & Nicole Kidman’s hair are super long, shiny and gorgeous and my mom and I couldn’t stop making comments about their hair! Serious hair envy.

Now I can’t stop thinking about dying my hair a light red colour.. (one day. it’s gonna happen).

2. THE HOUSE

It’s worth it to watch this movie just for the house & decor alone. By far the best movie house ever! The book & movie take place in New England but due to bad weather & financial reasons they built and filmed the house in San Juan Park, Washington. The entire house was a specially built architectural shell (the house had no actual rooms on the inside), and was built on a platform. All the interior scenes of the house were shot on sets in LA and the house was taken down after filming. (so sad!)

I loved everything about the grand white Victorian house in the movie but my favorite part was by far the kitchen. This is my dream kitchen. Get ready to swoon…

3. MIDNIGHT MARGARITAS!

Enough said.

Practical Magic is all about love, family, & girl power combined with the magicalness of potions, spells and all things witches. It’s a fun, feel-good movie that represents positivity and sisterhood & is perfect to watch during the Fall. Grab your best girlfriends, pour some margaritas & get into the Fall spirit with Practical Magic!

I loved the movie so much that I painted a little picture of Sandra Bullock’s character ‘Sally Owens‘, & the Amas Veritas (True Love) Spell. I found this cute print on etsy, and decided to paint my own version to put on my bookshelf. The original print/painting is by etsy user: woodwings, which you can see here.

To conclude this post, I leave you with one of my favorite scenes from Practical Magic..
“Hang On To Your Husbands, Girls!”

Oh, how I wish I were a witch…
