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.

And while you’re at it, you’ve got two chances to win this week. Beauty 360 on Mission Street in Santa Cruz is also giving away a free facial and a free skincare product. The new company is similar to Sephora, and is attached to blog_beauty2-1CVS. They offer an array of beauty services and some popular skincare lines like Mario Badescu and Cosmedix. Beauty 360, 1700 Mission St., Santa Cruz.

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!

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
