The Penny Rose is a style portal created by writer and actor Christa Martin. Blending my journalism background, styling experience, and fashionable outlook, I pen magazine-like content that focuses on indie fashion and beauty brands. My journalism work has appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens,, Design*Sponge, and I've had hundreds of articles published in regional newspapers and magazines. Learn more at
