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.

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
