Reflective Spirit- Tiger Charm

 

Hello Goddesses! I thrust my handbag into my left hand, opening the taxi door with my right. The sounding horns bellowed merrily, surrounding me with the city sounds often identifying the early morning commuter rush. I sat within the taxi's familiar yellow cab as the door slammed with a noisy thud. Silence descended. “Where are you going lady?”, the driver asked me as we peeled away from the curb. I opened my luxury bag to peer in, hoping to find my client's address, which I had organized and placed in the soft gray suede pocket. I frantically toss aside my Ipad and wallet to gaze within, frantically looking to find the missing address. Relief surrounded me with the word ‘found’! My search was over, and as I sounded the bugle, “Let's go!”, I joyously gave him the address.

 

The Glamour-ist handbag is a designated place to keep her sacred objects, to venture forth each day to work or play. Often, the soft dense interiors are filled with necessary memorabilia to have “on hand” and hold her necessities. These purses' inner chambers contain pockets, zippers, with compartments, places to be filled. These sections I call caves, the symbolic metaphor for inner organization. The purses' outer designs are beautifully enhanced with symbols, colors, and designs resonating to others their luxurious mystique. This is her must have, The Glamour-ist “Alter” to carry on her way out the door.

 

My bag, as well as yours, is my Home on the go! It is a condominium, or if you prefer “your own prime real estate.” The physician, professional advisor or realtor travels with this infamous statement accessory, A.K.A “bag.” My gorgeous designer tote offers protection to my professional needs, just like the bags many doctors or sports figures carry. How often have you, the Glamour-ist, placed one bag into another to carry your sports gear, yoga changes as you head to the park, gym, or country club to look fresh and ready?

My High Priestess Jewelry- Backstory: The Handbag

I believe the handbag offers the Glamour-ist transition into the realm of sacred, magical, and the bonding experiences. When you first place your hand on the cursive purse handle, you become aware of what intuitively drew you, choosing this designer bag. Notice your handbag's interior offering the perfect place, what I call ‘ the power pouch’, to keep your phone, amulet or lipstick for the Glamour-ist within protected!

 

It's important the Glamour-ist chooses her handbag with intentions for the day to transport your tools with different handbags for different occasions. The size, color and fabric are your Spirit essentials to anchor your choices. A gentle reminder-- What you carry with you, in everyday life--wherever you go is your body's wise signal. Is your tote too large, a burden for you to carry? At noon, are you stressed out for lunch? I say, take a break! Let’s order you a healthy takeout lunch, to enjoy in the park relaxing with renewed energy. In the evening, do lessen the load by reducing the size of your handbag! Are you carrying too much to enjoy your evening out?

 

The Glamour-ist will choose her bag and take the handle, enjoying glamour and play, on the go. I say, lighten up, wear Glamour, Own Spirit, and Feel like a Million!

 

Handbag Facts- The Awakening of Designer Bags.

Samuel Parkinson wanted to treat his wife with a custom set of luggage. He noted her purse was too small and not sturdy enough to travel. He then created leather bags in various sizes for different occasions and uses. Mrs. Parkinson owned the very first “Designer Handbag”. These designs are said to have inspired the legendary Louis Vuitton 1857 and the young Guccio Gucci 1910. Today we still celebrate these designer bags!
