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.

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!

The Meaning of ‘LIFE’

With a new documentary film about his work, and huge exhibits on both coasts, acclaimed Santa Cruz nature photographer Frans Lanting is having a landmark year. But his crusade for conservation doesn’t leave much time for looking back

 

Seasons of Opportunity

Everything in our world has a specific time (a season) in which to accomplish a specific work—a “season” that begins (opportunity) and ends (time’s up). I can feel the season is changing. The leaves turning colors, the air cooler, sunbeams casting shadows in different places. It feels like a seasonal change has begun in the northern hemisphere. Christmas is in four months, and 2015 is swiftly speeding by. Soon it will be autumn and time for the many Festivals of Light. Each season offers new opportunities. Then the season ends and new seasons take its place. Humanity, too, is given “seasons” of opportunity. We are in one of those opportunities now, to bring something new (Uranus) into our world, especially in the United States. Times of opportunity can be seen in the astrology chart. In the U.S. chart, Uranus (change) joins Chiron (wound/healing). This symbolizes a need to heal the wounds of humanity. Uranus offers new archetypes, new ways of doing things. The Uranus/Chiron (Aries/Pisces) message is, “The people of the U.S. are suffering. New actions are needed to bring healing and well-being to humanity. So the U.S. can fulfill its spiritual task of standing within the light and leading humanity within and toward the light.” Thursday, Aquarius Moon, Mercury enters Libra. The message, “To bring forth the new order in the world, begin with acts of Goodwill.” Goodwill produces right relations with everyone and everything. The result is a world of progressive well-being and peacefulness (which is neither passive nor the opposite of war). Saturday is the full moon, the solar light of Virgo streaming into the Earth. Our waiting now begins, for the birth of new light at winter solstice. The mother (hiding the light of the soul, the holy child), identifying the feminine principle, says, “I am the mother and the child. I, God (Father), I Matter (Mother), We are One.”

Comanche Cellars

Michael Simons, owner and winemaker of Comanche Cellars, once had a trusted steed called Comanche, which was part of his paper route and his rodeo circuit, from the tender age of 10. In memory of this beautiful horse, he named his winery Comanche, and Comanche’s shoes grace the label of each handcrafted bottle.
