Special thank you to Kandice Henning, everyone at The Alive Center and all of the ladies who attended this fun night out. There was an opportunity to do some spring cleaning and refresh our wardrobes in the clothing swap. We had a great time in Chef Christy's cooking class and enjoyed the free samples and we learned all about organizing 101, clearing your energy, cleansing your gut, and then had fun working out in a Bollywood dance class. There was a beauty talk, a spring makeup lesson and demos from high-quality vendors that had items for purchase including non-toxic beauty products, essential oils and more.
