Win It and Wear It?—Dec. 16

Blog_obsessivebDear Readers, With you in mind, we’ve been hosting Win It and Wear It contests for the last few months, but lately, it seems that interest in the contests has waned, so we wanted to get some feedback from you. Would you like to see the contests continue? If so, what were some of your favorite things that we gave away that you’d like to see come back? An August Mae ring? Jewelry from Stripe? Accessories from Idle Hands and Wallflower Boutique? Leather from Nuala or a T-shirt from Lex Designs? Beauty products and a free facial from Beauty 360 in Santa Cruz? Lingerie by Manu? What other stores would you like to see us partner with to bring freebies to our readers? Give us your feedback and if it seems like you, the readers, are still interested, then we’ll pick the contests back up.

Thanks for reading, Christa and Leslie

Please bring these back! I so look forward to them and have found new designers and shops because of it! I adore Stripe and t-shirts from Lex. There are so many independents in Santa Cruz Co that could benefit from the publicity. Some faves include Pacific Trading Co, Saffron and Genevieve, Stripe, Rouge, Warmth Company, Outside In...the list could go on and on!

Thank you for the blog, I'm an avid follower!

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so it’s time to be thinking about the wine you’re going to serve with that special dinner, be it turkey, ham, a roast, or something vegetarian or vegan.
