Win It and Wear It—Nov. 3

blog_beauty_rosenecklaceIn last week’s Win It and Wear It contest, Baylily won a free facial with Beauty 360 Santa Cruz, and Maria G. won a free ring from August Mae. Up next are a T-shirt from Idle Hands and a necklace from its next-door neighbor Wallflower Boutique. The side-by-side stores offer a collection of unique clothing and accessories. Wallflower specializes in the hippie chic look, while Idle Hands makes a nod to Western-inspired wares. The T-shirt here says it all: “I Don’t Wanna Play House.” And for those obsessed with all things floral, there’s a lovely  “red celluloid rose” necklace up for grabs. All you have to do is leave a comment here at this blog and tell us about something that you’re obsessed with. Deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 9, and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, Nov. 10.

I'm obsessed with beauty. I see it all around me. It's a design in nature, in food, in people and what people wear. I love nature inspired creations. In food and in what people wear.

Hey all! Just moved here from sc as a natural chef student! I love wallflower and idle hands:) I wear my wallflower beanie at school sometimes in lieu of my chef's hat. Definitely could use some more merchandise to show off!

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
