Spend with Cincinnati: Flora Lee Naturals

Happy Self-Care Sunday, friends! If you’re looking for new products to try, check out @floraleenaturals, a handmade, plant-based skincare line with a skincare studio on Gilbert Ave where you can buy products, get a steam facial, attend a DIY mask-making class and more! The company was launched in 2017 by Nia, a midwest native who grew up with her grandmother Flora. Inspired by a desire to live a more natural, holistic lifestyle and her love of skincare, Nia launched this handmade, plant-based skincare brand. You can find it in local spas like @sprucenailshop (when they re-open) or online at Oh! And head to their IG page for a great DIY hand sanitizer tutorial. ?? 

Spend with Cincinnati: Quidwell

Looking for ways to stay active while you’re stuck at home? Check out this awesome new “Sweat and Support” initiative from our friends at @quidwell (an aggregator of all the amazing fitness and wellness resources we have in town)! Stay strong, Cincy! We’ve got this! ? 
Repost from @quidwell

At Quidwell we are here to connect women in the community to the plentiful, local health and wellness businesses.
That connection is even more important right now as we all hunker down into quarantine. We know that many of our favorite studios and instructors will be hurting financially during this time. And we also know that women in Greater Cincinnati will need help supporting their mental and physical health from afar.
In an effort to continue to connect, and help support these two demographics we value so much, we’re creating an online series: The Sweat and Support Series.
Every day we’ll feature a different instructor or studio on our IGTV, Facebook, and Youtube channel leading a 30-minute at-home workout. If you enjoy this series and would like to support these small local businesses, we have also created a GoFundMe page where you can donate. These donations will be divided between all participating parties.
The series starts tomorrow! Tune in bright and early (or anytime tomorrow as they will be available whenever it’s most convenient for you) on Facebook and IGTV for a chance to sweat with one of our local talented fitness instructors!

Spend with Cincinnati: Hey Michelle

With bars and dine-in restaurants closed, our friend over at @heymichelle1 developed a really great (and growing!) list of where you can grab carry-out/curbside pick-up around town! Also keep in mind that, while delivery services like @ubereatsare super helpful, they also charge the retailer up to 30%, so carry-out/pick-up is the best way to keep those $ with the restaurants you love so dearly! And tip generously if you’re able! ?? •

Spend with Cincinnati: Jeff Ruby’s

Feigning a Freddie? Missing your mignon? @jeffrubyculinary just launched a new online Curbside Take Out portal where you can easily place orders for pickup from their entire menu. Check it out at Oh, and former server talking here… If you’re able, tip GENEROUSLY if you chose to pick up instead of dine in because service staff are bearing a huge brunt of this. Most restaurants offer carry out and even delivery options so keep that in mind if you’re opting to have dinner at home more often over the next few weeks to avoid the crowds. Also, think about hopping on your favorite restaurants’ websites to order extra gift certificates to use later. Remember to order from them DIRECTLY if you can so they benefit immediately and don’t have to share profit with a third party! Any other suggestions for how we can help support local restaurants?
