Soul Body’s Thrive Wellness Series

Wellness Workshops

catch of the day fish (2)True health and wellness takes work from a variety of angles. We all known the pitfalls of hitting the gym hard but following it up with a decadent triple-mocha-something-or-other; or hoping that simply eating a sugar-fat-carb-everything-free diet will magically transform us into chiseled, marathon-running super humans. Sadly, it doesn’t quite work like that. Anyone who really knows health (and believe us, the women behind Soul Body do), knows that you’ve got to combine diet, exercise, and even self care for the total package of feeling and looking great. And as we dive into fall (and yes, that is what’s happening, though the weather might not seem like it) Soul Body is offering the perfect workshop series for developing a total-body approach to health.

Harbor East’s Summer Sidewalk Sale, Sunday August 10

Harbor East Summer Sidewalk Sale

catch of the day fish (2)So, normally all we need to hear is “Harbor East Sidewalk Sale” and we’re there. No questions asked, because we already know that Harbor East is the spot for some of the city’s best shopping accompanied by its most beautiful views. So a sale where we get to stroll through the neighborhood perusing our favorite shops while soaking up some perfect summer weather is a no-brainer. But this particular sale is being called Harbor East’s “juiciest” yet. And that’s not just because of the complimentary snowballs (yes, there really will be complimentary snowballs). In addition to your free snowball, you may also end up sporting a pair of Harbor East sunglasses—given away free to anyone who enters to win a $400 gift card package. So just to recap: worst case scenario is that you end up with a cool pair of free sunglasses, a snowball, and a dreamy day of amazing shopping with awesome deals. Best case scenario is all of that plus winning a $400 gift card. Hmm. Read More →
