Bonnie, a new monthly lifestyle magazine for women, makes its debut in Sacramento on Jan. 2, publisher Shawn Crary said Wednesday.
Named after Crary's mother, Bonnie magazine is aimed at women in the 25-to-55 age bracket and will include profiles of "inspiring" women in the Sacramento business and political world, as well as stories on fashion, culture and beauty tips.
"Our mission is to be sophisticated without being snobby, bohemian without being grungy," said Crary, a graphic designer who's worked for corporate and weekly newspapers in the Bay Area.
The inaugural issue includes a profile of three local women who've faced life challenges, as well as a story on wardrobe malfunctions among Hollywood celebrities.
It will be distributed free at coffee shops, salons and doctors' offices from Loomis to Davis, as well as on magazine racks in Sacramento's downtown and midtown areas.
Crary, owner of the Big Monkey Group publishing firm in Stockton, already publishes five other Central Valley community magazines in Stockton, Lodi, Manteca and Lathrop. Bonnie will be printed by Dome Printing in Sacramento.
