Win It and Wear It—Oct. 22

blog_beauty2-2Beyonce sang, “Put a ring on it,” and that’s exactly what followers of August Mae Designs are doing. These romantic, vintage-inspired rings, made of salvaged buttons, jewelry, and the treasures in your grandmother’s jewelry box, are quickly becoming a hit to those who discover this up-and-coming jewelry line. Bottom line: See it. Want it. Must have it. That’s the response we hear over and over when people discover a timeless August Mae ring. Created by designers Sarah York and Jan Reehm of Santa Cruz, you can see more of their work at Stripe, 107 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, or etsy.com/shop/augustmaedesigns.

This week in Obsessive Beauty’s “Win It and Wear It” contest, we are giving away one of August Mae’s gorgeous rings. Simply leave a comment here at this blog for a chance to win. Tell us about something that you’re obsessed with. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, Nov. 3.

Leather Cowgirl Boots
written by Baylily, October 27, 2010
I’m obsessed with..... cowgirl boots! When I put them on my feet, I feel like I can do anything, be anyone. I can mount a horse, scuff them up on the dance floor, or simply strut around the city streets open to possibility. My boots take a regular outfit on a regular day and add a sense of adventure ;).
pick me!

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
