Lovely Leather

beauty_photo11We’ve blogged about Nuala leather products in the past, but recently, Obsessive Beauty had a glimpse at some of the gorgeous work that Terry McInerney has been creating as of late, and her new line of leather accessories has us drooling. McInerney, a local mom in Santa Cruz, has been cutting and sewing together a new batch of inspired purses, messenger bags and more. What particularly caught our eye are her new wallets ($55)—with simple studded hardware and pockets that will fit your debit card, driver’s license and much more; they come in black or a chestnut color and are vastly unique. Another captivating item of McInerney’s are her leather cuffs, which have a vintage broach embedded on them ($42)—they offer a splash of rough femininity to any outfit. McInerney is also responsible for the recent brouhaha over a certain leather cuff watch that she recently created. A chunky leather band wraps around your wrist, with a classic watch face attached to it. It fits in perfectly with the sturdy, military-inspired looks that were featured on the runways. Perfect for fall. (These can also be custom-ordered.) Visit etsy.com/shop/nualaleather to make an inquiry, or find Nuala leather on Facebook.

Joining the leather rush is a new scarf just out by local designer Alexis Meschi of Lex Designs ($48), which is made of a cozy black fabric, with a piece of leather as the focal point of the scarf. It’s a fresh take on the classic black scarf, and offers a pop of texture in your fall wardrobe.


All products (except the watches) are sold at Stripe, 107 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, 421-9252, stripedesigngroup.com. Learn more at madebylex.com, and etsy.com/shop/nualaleather, or search for Nuala leather on Facebook.

Week of Festivals: Full Moon, Lantern Festival, Purim, Holi

It is a week of many different festivals along with a full moon, all occurring simultaneously. Thursday Chinese New Year celebrations end with the Lantern Festival (at full moon). Thursday is also the Pisces Solar festival (full moon), Purim (Jewish Festival) and Holi (Hindu New Year Festival). Sunday, March 8, Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. The festival of Purim celebrates the freedom of the Hebrew people from the cruel Haman (a magistrate) seeking to destroy them. Esther, the Queen of Persia, who was secretly Jewish, saved her people from death. The sweet cookie hamentaschen celebrates this festival. Friday, March 6, is Holi, the Hindu Spring Festival celebrated after the March full moon. Bonfires are lit the night before, warding off evil. Holi, the Festival of Colors, is the most colorful festival in the world. It is also the Festival of Love—of Radha for Krishna (the blue-colored God). It is a spring festival with singing, dancing, carnivals, food and bhang, a drink made of cannabis leaves. Holi signifies good over evil, ridding oneself of past errors, ending conflicts through rapprochement (returning to each other). It is a day of forgiveness, including debts. Holi also marks the beginning of New Year. At the Pisces Solar festival we recite the seed thought, “We leave the Father’s home and, turning back, we save.” Great Teachers remain on Earth until all of humanity is enlightened. The New Group of World Servers is called to this task and sacrifice. Sacrifice (from the heart) is the first Law of the Soul, the heart of which is Love. This sacrifice saves the world.

Thomas Fogarty Winery

When looking for a bottle of something to have with dinner, Gewürztraminer 2012 is not the first wine to come to mind. Given the popularity of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir—to name but a few—Gewürztraminer sits low on the totem pole.
