What to get a LIBRA for her BIRTHDAY September 23 – October 22

Some of the most popular women are born under the sign of Libra. Both gracious and fair, Libra is a loving sign that prioritises the needs of others above all else. Libra’s symbol, The Scales gives a natural sense of right and wrong with emphasis on justice and honesty. Ruled by Venus, such women are simply beautiful on both the outside and the inside, exuding harmony, elegance and equality.

What We Love About Libra

A strong sense of moral principles combined with a graceful, utterly charming temperament makes them popular with almost everyone.

Why Libra Drives Us Nuts

Weighing up the balance on The Scales, Libra tends to see both sides of every situation so they have trouble making up their minds up and coming to a firm decision.

Libra Advice 

Take some time out from pleasing others to please yourself and fulfil your own needs every so often.

Libra Celebrities
Gwen Stefani, Kim Kardashian, Dakota Johnson, Margaret Thatcher, Gwyneth Paltrow, Serina Williams, Kate Winslet, Avril Lavigne, Susan Sarandon, Sharon Osbourne, Bella Hadid, Maddie Ziegler and Olivia Newton-John.



Libra's Tarot Card: Justice
The Tarot card of Libra is Justice which embodies truth, morals, fairness and human rights. Libra knows that actions always have consequences in the form of karma and seek to promote a harmonious balance.

Libra's Symbol: The Scales
The Scales is interestingly, the only inanimate symbol of the zodiac. Another interesting fact is that with regards to weights and measures, the abbreviation for a pound of weight is ‘lb’ taken from the abbreviation of ‘libra’ which in turn, is the latin word for scales (balance).

Libra's Ruling Planet: Venus
Libra’s sensual powers of persuasion and charm are given to her by Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Our Libra lady prizes one-on-one relationships and she shines with grace, charm and beauty.


Libra's Ruling House: 7th House of Relationships
The 7th House of Relationships, ruled by Libra, brings romance. Libra women can empathise fully with their partner (in work or relationships), understanding their needs, feelings and desires.

Libra's Element: Air
Air brings intellect and clarity. As well as seeking justice and equilibrium, Libra women draw peace and light from Air’s element, surrounding themselves with a calming energy.

Libra's Colours: Pink & Light Blue
The lovely soft pastel colours of pink and blue reflect the airy, calming nature of Libra. Pink fluffy clouds in a pale blue sky with a gentle breeze symbolise Libra’s balanced approach to life and sweet, likeable personality.

Libra's Quality: Cardinal
The Autumn Equinox occurs in September each year, marking the end of summer and the beginning of Autumn. It’s the moment when the sun illuminates the northern and southern hemispheres equally, making night and day equal. It is no coincidence that the sign of balance is found here.

Born On The Libra Cusp
If you were born on the Virgo-Libra Cusp, from September 19 to September 25, you were born on the Cusp of Beauty. You are a vision of perfection, balance and grace; a beautiful individual both inside and out! You have been blessed with both wit and charm which, when used correctly can be powerfully persuasive. You have the grounded determination of an Earth sign (Virgo) and the charisma and social ease of an Air sign (Libra). You have high standards and always try to carry yourself in an elegant fashion. Family, friends and people you meet will be genuinely bewitched by your kind words and gentle heart. New clothes, makeup and accessories will make you feel fulfilled.

If you’re born on the Libra-Scorpio cusp, from Octob
er 20 to October 26, known as The Cusp of Drama, your intellect and ambition might go into overdrive. You are both determined and critical, the ultimate drama queen and seductress, influenced by two very powerful, intense planets; Venus, the planet of love and beauty combined with Pluto, the dark mysterious planet known for its depth and passion. Other people are usually captivated by your edge of dark beauty. Your intelligence and observance lead you to quickly assess right from wrong, sometimes leaving others to catch up. You are all about truth and equality, loathing lies and dishonesty. You are extremely competent and have no problem expressing your opinions. You have charm and magnetism combined with an empathetic nature that gives you control over most situations. You're an intensely caring individual who is blessed with bewitching qualities.

Birthstones: Sapphire (September), Opal (October).

Alternative Birthstones: Tourmaline, Peridot, Lapis Lazuli, Agate.

How To Remove Mould From Leather Handbags and Bags

Mould on leather it not unusual to see. It normally occurs when the leather gets damp and is then stored in an airless environment for a certain length of time. Your leather handbag or bag may get splashes of rain during an outing and then be tucked at the back of your cupboard until the next time you come to use it. What you’ll see is a whitish pattern on the surface of the leather. It’s what we in the trade call bloom.


 

Light bloom can easily be removed with a soft cloth, clean water and some leather cleaner.

1. Remove surface mould with a damp cloth.
2. Clean the leather with leather cleaner or very mild soap.
3. Place outside in direct sunlight for 20 minutes each side.
4. Allow to dry thoroughly in a warm room.

When using leather cleaner, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and test a small inconspicuous area before treating the whole bag, to make sure there is no reaction or adverse effects.

Mould spores do not like sunlight; the ultraviolet radiaton kills them thus preventing mould from flourishing and colonising.

DO NOT leave leather products in direct sunlight for longer periods of time as this will fade the colour dye in the leather.

DO NOT use detergent, bleach or any other harmful substance.

If the bloom is fairly substantial, you can use an anti-bacterial cleanser spray. Choose one that is safe to use in kitchens where food is prepared; it should be non-bleach, no taint, unperfumed. This targets the mould spores quite efficiently and stops them coming back. Anti-bacterial cleaner sprays can be found in most supermarkets.

1. Do a spot test and allow the leather to dry completely before treating the whole surface.
2. Spray the surface liberally, then immediately massage gently into the leather with a soft dry cloth.
3. Place outside in direct sunlight for 20 minutes each side.
4. Allow the leather to dry completely in a warm room inside your home.

This will not work for suede or nubuck which require the expertise of a professional leather cleaner.

Chill and take a breath; no body is perfect after-all.

Virgo celebrities
Beyonce, Jimmy Fallon, Blake Lively, Tim Burton, Keanu Reeves, Michael Jackson, Michelle Williams, Prince Harry, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Chris Pine, Pink, Cameron Diaz.


Virgo's Tarot Card: The Hermit
The Tarot card of Virgo is The Hermit; he finds comfort in solitude, using quiet time alone to mull over events and seek the answers needed from within. The Hermit chooses carefully when and with whom he might share personal words and feelings with. Balancing daily life with a smattering of spirituality is important to the Virgo woman.

Virgo's Symbol: The Virgin
Pure and perfect, the Virgin is acutely aware of flaws and is naturally mindful of what is right and wrong. Do not be deceived by her innocence, she has a fierce loyalty and humble servitude to those she loves, almost to the point of being a martyr to herself.

Virgo's Ruling Planet: Mercury
Mercury is the planet that influences information which makes Virgo a valuable source of information and ideas. This, combined with the observant and analytical aspects of Virgo, makes her extremely skilful and knowledgeable. Thus, Mercury rules the intelligent yet witty sign of Virgo.

Virgo's Ruling House: 6th House of Routine
The 6th house represents daily habits, structure and planning. There is an interest in health benefits, a focus on work and a desire for personal growth. This house is all about regimes and patterns.

Virgo's Element: Earth
Virgo is a practical sign that is acutely aware of her surrounding world. Passion comes to the fore when something is wrong or out of place. There is a sense of frustration if imbalances cannot be fixed. Just as one season follows another, the cycle of the universe is strong in the Earth element and reflected in Virgo’s role as the maiden of the annual harvest. 

 

Virgo's Colour: Green and Brown
Shades of green and brown are natural colours connected to Mother Nature, from the fresh plants of Springtime to the mellow hues of Autumn leaves. Green emphasises personal growth. Brown symbolises stability. Shades of these colours are lucky for Virgo Women.

Virgo’s Quality: Mutable
Virgo is the last zodiac sign of Summer; the warm days are getting shorter and the winter is approaching. Virgo uses its Mutable energy to sweep the season to a close. Virgo’s love of structure and planning help prepare for the change of seasons.

Born on the Virgo Cusp
If you're born about three days before or after the Sun changes signs, you're ‘on the cusp’ and you might find that you possess personality traits from your neighbouring sign.

If you were born on the Leo-Virgo Cusp, from August 19 to August 25, you are a natural leader with a vision for the world and the ability to command a room. You were born on the Cusp of Exposure, and with the right balance, you are destined for success! You have the passion and intensity of a Fire sign (Leo) and the patience and durability of an Earth sign (Virgo). This gives you the ability to be a determined individual with the tenacity to follow through with projects and goals.

The Best Birthday Gifts For The Leo Man – 23 July to 22 August


It’s easy to choose birthday gifts for a man once you know his zodiac sign as it gives a clue to his personality and traits.

Leather Backpacks for Men by Ashwood

The charming Leo man is ruled by the Sun, the brightest object in the sky and the centre of the solar system. Both warm and affectionate, the Leo man loves to be the centre of attention. He adores everything life has to offer and he has a playful sense of humour. He is very romantic and takes relationships seriously. Travel is an adventure with the journey being as exciting as the destination.

Leo’s symbol is the lion and just like the King of the Jungle, he is a leader amongst men; confident yet loyal and steadfast. He is trustworthy and reliable which attracts other people into his orbit. The benevolent king is also well known for his generosity. 

Natural Tanned Leather Goods by Ashwood

The lion can have a stubborn streak but he makes up for this by being fun to be around. Vibrant and unique, full of passion and intensity, the sparks can certainly be ignited within the realms of this fire driven sign.

Leo men are very expressive and sometimes dramatic! The better he feels, the better everyone around him feels. He has a happy, extravagant and luxury-loving nature which compels others to treat him like royalty.

Luggage and Leather Goods for Men by Ashwood

Lucky Colours include Gold, Orange and Red.

Why These Are The Best Birthday Gifts for Leo Women July 23 – August 22

Women born in the sign of Leo are utterly charming, full of fun and delightfully flirtatious. Ruled by the hot fiery sun, the magnificent lion is the life and soul of any party. Leo’s have a heart of gold and a generous nature. Women born under the sign of the King of the Jungle often exude an air of royalty and make courageous leaders. For the Leo business woman, high quality leather briefcases, satchels and work bags make great gifts for her.

Canterbury Satchel by Catwalk Collection Handbags

Leo's Symbol: The Lion
The zodiac sign for Leo is, of course, the brave and mighty Lion. Its glyph appears as the head and tail of a Lion, which also represents the Greek letter “lambda,” the first letter in the word “Leon,” meaning Lion. The Lion is well known for its strength and bravery as it rules over the jungle as one of the most powerful animals.

What we love about Leo
Leo women have a big heart and a warm spirit. Their love of laughter makes them a joy to be around. Other people gravitate towards Leo to absorb some of their joie de vivre.

Why Leo drives us nuts
Leo's can be very dramatic! They also love to be the centre of attention. Birthdays are the perfect excuse to pamper her with a luxury gift such as a leather wash bag to take on holidays or to adorn her bathroom at home.

Leather Wash Bags by Catwalk Collection Handbags

Leo advice
Remember to pay attention to the feelings of those around you. Leo’s are very good at expressing themselves but should encourage others to do so, too.

Leo Celebrities
Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Lopez, Mick Jagger, Arnold Schwarzenegger, J.K. Rowling, Chris Hemsworth, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mila Kunis, Madonna, Charlize Theron, Ben Affleck, Halle Berry, and Robert De Niro.

Leo's Tarot Card: Strength
In most Tarot decks, a lion features prominently on the card of Strength, nature in its most primal form.  This is not just physical strength, but also strength of heart, mind, and soul. Leo’s must learn to balance brute force and powerful roar with compassion, generosity, and love.

Leo's Ruling Planet: The Sun
Leo the Lion shines in any gathering, exuding sparkling personality, warmth and charm. Bright and blazing, the sun is the closest star to Earth; the most powerful influence our solar system. It demands our attention, just like Leo.

Leo's Ruling House: 5th House of Pleasure
As the fifth sign of the zodiac, kind-hearted Leo rules over the 5th House of Pleasure. This gives Leo women a sense of playfulness and exuberant energy. Leo’s are all about fun, creativity, and expression. Leo’s cheeky flirtatious nature adds to a rich romantic life with all the rewards love holds. Therefore, a lush leather crossbody bag would make an ideal gift for the fun loving Leo girlfriend, fiancee or wife.

Leather Crossbody Bags by Catwalk Collection Handbags

Leo’s Element: Fire
The element of Fire ignites Leo’s desires for life and action. Leo’s energy radiates warmth and love. Bold expression, brave choices and powerful confidence all come from fanning the flames of the fire.

Leo's Colours: Gold, Purple and Orange.
Glistening with royalty and class, gold has always been a symbol of power and prestige; it’s the perfect lucky colour for the King of the Jungle. When caught in the light, gold will shimmer and shine brightly, just like Leo’s flamboyant, attention loving side. Purple is another good colour for Leo women; it symbolises luxury, wisdom and spirituality. Orange matches Leo’s zest for life; it has the energy of red combined with the happiness of yellow. Handbags, purses and accessories in any of these colours would make great birthday presents for a special Leo woman.

Leather Purses by Catwalk Collection Handbags

Leo's Quality: Fixed
In the brilliant light of mid-summer sun, Leo lets its practical side surface, demonstrating endurance and an unwavering self-confidence to carry everyone through the longest and hottest days of year, whilst remaining optimistic for the future.

Born on the Leo Cusp
If you're born about three days before or after the Sun changes signs, you're ‘on the cusp’ and you might find that you possess personality traits from your neighbouring sign.

If you were born on the Cancer-Leo cusp, between July 19 and July 25 you were born on the Cusp of Oscillation. The sensitive, emotionally charged Cancer ruled by the moon and water crosses zodiac paths with the brave, proud Leo the lion as ruled by the fiery sun. As a powerfully influential person with contrasting energies from both the sun and the moon, you have the potential to be a compassionate lover and a compelling leader.

If you were born on the Leo-Virgo Cusp, from August 19 to August 25, you are a natural leader with a vision for the world and the ability to command a room. You were born on the Cusp of Exposure, and with the right balance, you are destined for success! You have the passion and intensity of a Fire sign (Leo) and the patience and durability of an Earth sign (Virgo). This gives you the ability to be a determined individual with the tenacity to follow through with projects and goals.
