Meet Manu

Blog_OB1birdtThere’s nothing quite like sliding on the perfect T-shirt. And that’s where Manuka Sanyal and her line of T-shirts, pajamas, lingerie, slips, camisoles, robes and panties come in. The local designer behind the line, Manu, has been gaining quite a following in Santa Cruz and beyond with her soft, exquisite, perfectly fitted garments.

Blog_OB5panty4Even a simple white T-shirt hugs your body perfectly, is sweet against your skin, is scooped just the right amount, and hits your body at a length that’s complimentary to any body type. And that’s just the T-shirts.

The pajamas, panties, and more have the same effect. Made from luxurious high-end organic fabrics and lace imported from France, the Manu line has even gathered followers like actress Olivia Wilde of the television show, House.

Blog_OB6Roden_smThis Labor Day weekend, from Saturday to Monday, her wares will be on sale at Twist, a boutique at 1364 Pacific Avenue in Downtown Santa Cruz; the store opens at 11 a.m. A variety of Manu items will be on sale at significant savings, with prices from $10-$150. So, don’t get your panties in a bunch—there will be plenty of cozy things for you to discover, including … new panties.

The Manu sale will be this Labor Day Weekend at Twist, 1364 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz; the store opens at 11 a.m. For more information, visit manukasanyal.com.

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
