Farewell to Obsessive Beauty, hello to The Penny Rose
As you may have noticed, Obsessive Beauty has been on a hiatus for the last few months. That’s because we’ve been working hard to transition the blog to the web. While Obsessive Beauty will still remain live on the Good Times’ website, this will be our swan song. We say goodbye to its home here at GT and welcome its new incarnation at thepennyrose.com.
We hope you’ll check out the re-vamped blog. The Penny Rose will cover more topics, reach a wider audience, and incorporate the talents of a handful of writers. While this new blog will continue to remain the only fashion/beauty/design media outlet in Santa Cruz County, we’ll now be adding on coverage from San Francisco and New York. The new editorial has been inspired by a 2011 Atlantic magazine article which cited these as being three of the top five artistic cities in America. At thepennyrose.com, daily posts will follow the adventures of a New York fashion insider, a San Francisco hipster reporter at large, Santa Cruz journalists, an eco-beauty junkie, a fitness buff and an international traveler. Most of all, it’s a place to be inspired and discover beautiful things. We hope you will join us. Some upcoming blogs will include a New York beauty balm disaster, a “shop around” Santa Cruz feature, a look at some eco-beauty products, exquisite soap from Bonny Doon, the opening of Stripe for Men in Santa Cruz, where to shop and how to find beautiful things in our beachside town, and much more. Check it out at thepennyrose.com.
