Diamond Days

blog_beauty1Scandinavian designer, Lotta Jansdotter, has done it again with her new(ish) line of purses, totes, and small pencil bags. This one is our favorite. With cascading lines of mustard yellow colored diamonds, it’s made out of linen, with an inner pocket and leather straps. Sized 13-inches by 14-inches, it has plenty of room to work as a day bag for your trek around the city. It’s stylish, innovative, and offers a design and color that will genuinely go with anything. If you haven’t discovered Jansdotter yet, now’s the time—her website, Jansdotter.com offers a series of original products created by this writer and artist, who, interestingly enough, years ago attended Cabrillo College. Jansdotter is a sweetheart, and an inspiration. Her books teach crafters how to make their own projects. If you’re ever in Brooklyn, you have to stop by her studio/store to pick up fabric scrap bags, stationary and much more. Each time I’ve been there (three times so far), I have plunked down a nice chunk of cash and came out with a load of fun new things and projects to start working on.

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.
