Level 99 Wren Trouser

blog_beauty11For a girl with a Kim Kardashian-sized rear end, finding a flattering pair of pants can be a struggle. But no longer. Recently, I took a jaunt down the street to my neighborhood store, Stripe (Stripedesigngroup.com), where I do a fair amount of shopping. The staff knows me quite well by now, to the point that I can walk in the door and they'll hit the racks, pulling out things they know I'll like. And every time, they're right. It's so impressive, that I swear they know my measurements—they know exactly what styles I'm drawn to, and precisely how something will fit my body. They also know that I have a lot of junk in my trunk, so to speak. (My words, not theirs.) So when I stopped by Stripe recently, the staff confidently pulled a pair of black pants off the rack and insisted that I try them on "just for fun." There was that knowing smile they had. And once I put on the Level 99 Wren Trousers ($88), I knew why they were smiling. Until that day, I had never found a pair of pants that fit my curves so carefully and attractively. Soft, with a linen feel, the pants are wide-leg to streamline curvy hips, and they have been exquisitely constructed to boost up the rear end. Perfect pants? Absolutely. I ended up buying two pairs—one in black, and one in khaki/brown. Sure, I spent a ton of money, but as any woman with curves knows, once you find a dreamy  pair of pants, you always buy two pairs.

The Level 99 Wren Trouser sells at Stripe, 107 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, Stripedesigngroup.com.

Good Times Holiday Giving

Giving Where It Helps

 

Giving Thanks: The Thought-Form of Solution

We are in the time and under the influence of Sagittarius, sign of the wanderer, good food, good music, and the joy (Jupiter as ruler) that occurs from giving to others while simultaneously giving thanks from our hearts. Having the Thanksgiving holiday during the month of Sag is not a mistake. No other sign understands joy (an aspect of the Soul) as Sag (except Pisces when not in despair). “Sag is a beam of directed and focused light. The beam reveals a greater light ahead, illuminating the Way to the center of the Light,” emitting the Ray of Joyfulness. Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude; in the form of prayers, thoughts, feelings, wishes, hopes and greetings. Gratitude is something we still need to learn. Gratitude creates goodwill. Together, gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution” for humanity and our world’s problems. Gratitude and goodwill are the prerequisites for the reappearance of the Christ, the Aquarian World Teacher. In Ancient Wisdom texts it is written, “being grateful is the hallmark of one who is enlightened.” Gratitude comes from the Soul—the characteristics of which are love and wisdom (Ray 2). Gratitude is scientifically and occultly (mental, not emotional) a releasing agent. Gratitude liberates us and everything around us. Also a service to others, gratitude is deeply scientific in nature, releasing us from the past and laying open our future path leading to the new culture and civilization, the new laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarian, the Age of Friendship and Equality. The Hierarchy lays much emphasis upon gratitude. Let us be grateful this year and this season together. And so now the days of light illuminating the darkness begin (December’s festivals and feast days). Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I am grateful for all of you, my readers.

Big Basin Vineyards

I was just in the process of purchasing a bottle of Big Basin’s 2012 Homestead in Vinocruz when Matt Ryan walked into the store. Ryan manages the tasting room, sales and the mailing list at Big Basin, and, considering the popularity of their wines, he’s a very busy man.
