Bubble Bath Bliss

blog_beauty_roseswithbeesI’ve fallen in love—with my new bathtub. I recently moved to a new place and it has a bathtub. For the first time in more than 11 years, I now have unlimited access to taking baths, and this has been one of the best things that has happened to me as of late. To top things off, I needed the perfect bubble bath, and let me tell you, that was hard to find. You can pick up any generic, waxy, stinky brand at a local drugstore, but to settle into the finest bubbles and an aroma that will fill your home for hours, you have to do some searching. I did, and found my new obsession—Tokyo Milk Bubble Bath, No. 12. With the scent of “Citrus Zest, Rosewood, Mimosa, and Mandarin,” this is a bubble bath worth trying. I originally found it at Anthropologie at half price, but now the store no longer carries it. But lucky me, I found it locally in Santa Cruz at Saffron and Genevieve, retailing for around $25. You can also find it online at Tokyo-milk.com. Try it out. There’s nothing better, really, than settling into a bath, calming your mind, and enjoying the soothing smells of a luxurious bubble bath.


Find Tokyo Milk Bubble Bath, No. 12 at Saffron and Genevieve, 901B Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz, 462-4506, saffronandgenevieve.com.

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.
