Lovely Lex

blog_beauty2-1We’ve got a crush. On a bag. A purse. A carryall. Whatever you want to call it. It’s so pretty it makes us blush. Meet the Couture Pleated Purse by Lex Designs. We’ve written about its designer, Alexis Meschi, in the past, and gushed about her impressive frocks, but this time around, we’re smitten with her trio of cream, blue, and pink purses. The Couture Pleated Purse is priced at $240—but for a hand-made, stunning design, what else do you expect? We’re talking gorgeous here. Clearly, we’re obsessed. The roomy bag is four-inches deep, 13-inches tall and 19-inches wide. We’ve seen it in person and our favorite is the pale pink, with its rows of pleats and origami style flower attached to it. In any color, this originally designed bag goes with any outfit. Dress up jeans and a T-shirt, take it with you for a spirited shopping trip to the city, or use it to spruce up your evening attire. This bag is for the fashionista who clearly has something to say (and plenty of stuff to carry).

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.

Fortino Winery’s Intriguing Charbono
