A Coat for all Seasons

blog_beauty1Even though the chilly weather might be starting to fade, a warm, cozy, highly fashionable lightweight coat should always be within reach. Here’s our new favorite: The Elin Coat in “eggplant,” by Juleselin is a one-of-a-kind find. With ruffles, buttons, pockets, a hood, and slightly puffed upper sleeves, this jacket is a stand-alone garment. The color is rich and deep, and the cut is flattering on all body types. Created by Julia Burnbaum, a local designer of California, “the collection is made of organic cotton, bamboo and recycled fabrics,” says the oakandco.com website where the item is currently being sold. (It's also being sold at Saffron and Genevieve in the Oak & Co pop up shop.) Paired with skinny jeans and Greenbees boots, you’ll have an outfit that will catch anyone’s eye. Stroll through the farmer’s market in your new look, take a day trip to the city and watch as passersby give you the once, twice, three times over as they admire your style. Trust us, this is one fine investment, for one fine day.

 


The Elin Coat by Juleselin is $328 and sells at oakandco.com or at Saffron and Genevieve, 901B Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz, saffronandgenevieve.com, 462-4506.

Good Times Holiday Giving

Giving Where It Helps

 

Giving Thanks: The Thought-Form of Solution

We are in the time and under the influence of Sagittarius, sign of the wanderer, good food, good music, and the joy (Jupiter as ruler) that occurs from giving to others while simultaneously giving thanks from our hearts. Having the Thanksgiving holiday during the month of Sag is not a mistake. No other sign understands joy (an aspect of the Soul) as Sag (except Pisces when not in despair). “Sag is a beam of directed and focused light. The beam reveals a greater light ahead, illuminating the Way to the center of the Light,” emitting the Ray of Joyfulness. Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude; in the form of prayers, thoughts, feelings, wishes, hopes and greetings. Gratitude is something we still need to learn. Gratitude creates goodwill. Together, gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution” for humanity and our world’s problems. Gratitude and goodwill are the prerequisites for the reappearance of the Christ, the Aquarian World Teacher. In Ancient Wisdom texts it is written, “being grateful is the hallmark of one who is enlightened.” Gratitude comes from the Soul—the characteristics of which are love and wisdom (Ray 2). Gratitude is scientifically and occultly (mental, not emotional) a releasing agent. Gratitude liberates us and everything around us. Also a service to others, gratitude is deeply scientific in nature, releasing us from the past and laying open our future path leading to the new culture and civilization, the new laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarian, the Age of Friendship and Equality. The Hierarchy lays much emphasis upon gratitude. Let us be grateful this year and this season together. And so now the days of light illuminating the darkness begin (December’s festivals and feast days). Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I am grateful for all of you, my readers.

What charities would you like to see people support this season?

Big Basin Vineyards

I was just in the process of purchasing a bottle of Big Basin’s 2012 Homestead in Vinocruz when Matt Ryan walked into the store. Ryan manages the tasting room, sales and the mailing list at Big Basin, and, considering the popularity of their wines, he’s a very busy man.
