In the Bag

blog_beauty1I was desperately in need for a new purse. My Anthropologie brown leather bag had finally died after two years. But it was going to take something special to replace it. And the most important feature—it couldn’t be too deep—you know the sort of bag where everything falls to the bottom and gets lost? That was the problem with my last bag. So, when I happened upon this clever and whimsical bag during a recent trip to New York, I knew I had it, “in the bag.” Created by a husband and wife artistic team who spearhead Brooklyn Industries (a very hip clothing and accessories store in Brooklyn and Manhattan), this bag is one of a kind. Well, at least as far as Santa Cruz or California goes. And besides the clouds and bird design, it is enormously functional. It features a large and wide pouch that is also shallow, so things can’t get lost. Two smaller pouches are on each side and attach with a magnetic closure. Inside are two roomy pockets, and hidden on the outside of the bag are two small side pockets. It’s colorful, original, and practical. Brooklynindustries.com, $68.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
