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!

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
