80s Barre and Bubbles Recap + GIVEAWAY

May 4, 2016
love you more too north dallas blogger plano lifestyle blogger husband blogger birthday in Dallas Barre Code Plano

I cannot believe the 80s Barre and Bubbles bash is over.  Since I found out I was selected as a MOVEMEANT ambassador, I have been planning this.  Around 25 women showed up to sweat and treat themselves (and several others that could not attend showed their support by donating online).  Together, we raised $540 that went straight to MOVEMEANT for them to use to encourage girls around the country to find activities that get them moving.

Girls from all over the DFW metroplex showed up in their 80s best to sweat it out to their favorite 80s tunes.  Julie, owner and instructor at The Barre Code Plano, led us in a fun brawl/barre code mixed routine.  Even with my boot, I burned over 300 calories.

Lyfe Kitchen provided quinoa crunch bowl samples and an edamame hummus platter and Vegan Noms provided delicious mini vegan cupcakes.  Everyone was so crazy about the delicious, healthy snacks, there were no leftovers!

Each girl left with a door prize (sports bra, water bottle, tote bag, or pen) donated by MOVEMEANT and swag bag filled with freebies, coupons, and discount codes from the sponsors.  Lorna Jane also donated “Active Living” bracelets to complete the swag bags.
