2015 Bras with Flair on the Square

Women’s Health Expo Recap!

I had SO much fun at this past Saturday’s Women’s Health Expo at The Phoenix downtown! We had more than 600 RSVPs and they enjoyed free mammograms, tasty (and healthy!) treats, a crossover fitness fashion show, free physician seminars, and 40+ vendors to shop with and learn from!

From Tennis to Tea, Turn It On Fitness Crossover fashions have you covered.
From tennis to tea, Turn It On Fitness Crossover fashions have you covered.

Here are a few highlights of the event for me… of course, the fashion show was awesome. The clothing was by Turn It On Fitness, which I blogged about a couple months ago here and we wrote about here in Cincy Chic. The line was created by former Ben-Gal cheerleader Juetta West and was designed by Project Runway star (and Dayton native) Althea Harper. The idea is that it’s clothing that’s functional enough for the gym and fashionable enough for everywhere else! The models in the show came out in pairs – one styled with the “fitness” look, and one styled with the “fashion” look – and it really helped to show how you could easily transition each piece.

Then, I stopped by to see “My Health Coach Zach” (we recently wrote about him here in Cincy Chic) who gave me great advice about tweaks to make to my nutrition to increase my chances of getting pregnant… shortly after his coaching, I got preggo, just sayin’! 🙂 He and I chatted about some things we can do to get my husband feeling better from his RA symptoms, and he suggested a new type of test he offers that can test for any food allergies that you may have. My husband’s RA tends to flare whenever he has gluten, so Zach was thinking maybe some other allergies might be flaring him up too! Apparently, they just take your blood and test it that way, which sounds easy and painless enough. So, I’m going to look into getting him that food allergy test asap!

Then, I ran into the gals from Owl Be Sweatin’. We’ve written about them a couple times in Cincy Chic, and they’re good friends of a friend of mine, but I had never met them before or seen their headbands in person before. Holy cow do these headbands work well! They’re adjustable, non-slip headbands made in a variety of colors and patterns. Because you can adjust them to perfectly fit you, you don’t get those headband headaches. And they’re only $16! What a great concept! Definitely check them out!

They were telling me about their “revolution” classes that they do that are a unique twist to spinning classes. Dark room, upbeat music, incorporating choreographed movements with super effective isometrics.  I used to be a Spin instructor a few years ago and I was in the best shape of my life when I was doing it. So, post-baby I’m definitely going to have to go check that out!

Owl Be Sweatin’ Supports Milford Alumni Charity Soccer Event

On August 25th, K.C. and Mallory DeBra, owners of Owl Be Sweatin’, are honoring a great cause and celebrating the beautiful life of Connor Martin. Connor was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and fought long and hard for a year until he passed away on June 5.

The Milford community wants to come together to show local support of the Martin family and to raise awareness of this rare condition. Owl Be Sweatin’ is a corporate sponsor of the event and will have their adjustable headbands displayed and ready for purchase! A portion of the proceeds will go directly to the Martin Family. In honor of the Milford Family-both mom and dad being Milford High School Alumns- they are supporting the Milford Alumni Soccer Games that will take place at Milford High School.

Being athletes themselves, K.C. and Mallory are excited to provide headbands that ACTUALLY work! They have put their needs and ideas together to come up with a great adjustable headband with various patterns and colors for all ages! Mallory stated in a recent press release, “Our Customers are the reason we design our headbands and we are thrilled to provide them with headband solutions that K.C. and I have been seeking for years!” 

Milford Alumni Soccer Games Coordinator, Carissa Smith also added,“We are very excited about this year’s alumni games being hosted as a benefit for the Martin Family..We appreciate the generosity of the school, the soccer program, and the community for helping us pull this off. We look forward to the entire community joining together for a great day of soccer to support such a wonderful cause.”

The women’s game will begin at 3:00 p.m. followed by the men’s at 5:00 p.m. All the proceeds from the event including split the pot, games, food, company sponsorships, etc. will be donated to the Martin Family.

We hope to see everyone coming together August 25th to show support and help a local family in need!

Owl Be Sweatin’ Donating Proceeds to Girls on the Run in April

alt logo3A friend introduced me to the gal behind a cool new locally-owned business Owl Be Sweatin’. They design, produce and distribute athletic headbands for girls and women of all ages. Owl Be Sweatin’ headbands are adjustable for any head size and allows you to loosen it ’til your heart’s content (being able to adjust them prevents those awful headband headaches!).

For the entire month of April, Owl Be Sweatin’ will be donating $1 to charity for every headband they sell thanks to the team joining focus with the non-profit organization Girls on the Run.

You can choose from more than 60 patterns with the Owl Be Sweatin’ headbands developed by sister-in-laws K.C. and Mallory DeBra, Cincinnati natives. As former athletes, the ladies wanted to create a functional headband and created their own for their sand volleyball league. Soon, others started asking where they were getting the headbands and encouraged them to form Hoot and Holler Partnership in 2012.

Buy them as gifts or as a little treat for yourself as warmer weather makes it way in and you make your way out for afternoon jogs and workouts

These will be great for the GOTR 5k race on May 11!
