Sizzlin' September

There are so many great events in and around the city this September that I thought I would do a roundup so you can either check them out yourself or meet me there! I'll be out and about at quite a few and would love to see some friendly faces, whether we're old friends or just meeting one another!

Thursday September 14th, FenwaYoga

will you join me? Calling all Yogi's to join us for FenwaYoga at Fenway Park on September 14. The class is for ages 16 and up and will be led by experts from CorePower Yoga. Your ticket package includes a ticket for the 1:35pm Red Sox vs. A's game and admission to the post-game Yoga Class held on the field warning track. A portion of every ticket package will benefit the Red Sox Foundation, so it's feel good in a couple of different ways!

Thursday September 14th, Meet the Maker at Follain: Kjaer Weis

Join Follain for a night of thoughtful conversation with Tara Foley and Kirsten Kjaer Weis. Kirsten will speak about her most recent launch - the lip pencils, and the inspiration and the connection between art and beauty. Following the panel Kirsten will host a makeup tutorial and answer all your beauty questions and provide you with tips and tricks on how to achieve a Signature KW Makeup Look. Tickets are $10 to reserve your seat, redeemable in-store.

Trillfit brings to the Boston-area a first-of-its-kind Hip-Hop Fitness Festival on September 16th at University Park Commons in Cambridge. Aptly called Trillfest, this one-day, outdoor festival will feature fitness sessions, DJs, food trucks, lawn games, a wellness market, and a meditation session, followed by a concert series. This is an event that I SO wish that I could go to. It seems like such a fun, fit and interesting day!

On Sunday, September 17th, Practice Positivity with Elissa Garza of Style Wire and me of Prim & Propah at an interactive styling event at Athleta on Newbury St. Elissa will style outfits from Athleta's beautiful fall collection and help you fill out your fall wardrobe with items that empower you to be your best self. Shopped till you dropped? Take moment to reset and craft a DIY Affirmation card with Amanda, so that you leave feeling as good as you look. Enjoy sips, an exclusive 25% discount off of all regular-price items for attendees of this event - and a raffle for an Athleta gift card.

Wednesday September 20th, Ladies Lounge with JUGs

My girls over at JUGs and in conjunction with General Assembly are killin' it with their Ladies Lounge series. This month is focusing on inviting Boston's top health and wellness coaches to get us on track for Fall. We may not be in High School anymore, but as adults, the Fall still represents a proverbial new beginning after a season of relaxation and indulgence (a second New Year, if you will)- making it a great time to refocus on health goals. But between all of the different schools of thought on dieting, advice from blogs, and the countless gyms all over Boston, it can be difficult to navigate what we should really be doing to get healthy - so difficult, in fact, that more and more people are making a living out of guiding us through it all. Meet Boston's health coaches. They'll give you some health inspiration, motivation and share their stories about how they're making careers of being trusted wellness gurus.

Friday September 22nd World Rhino Day with American Rhino

During the month of September, American Rhino will hold a number of events at both their stores at MarketStreet in Lynnfield and the new location on Newbury Street. Additionally, there will be a special grand opening event, which coincides with World Rhino Day at the Newbury Street location on September 22. Fun activities are planned for kids at MarketStreet throughout the day, starting with story time and crafts inside the store at 10am. American Rhino will be on "The Green" from 4 pm - 6 pm, where they'll be playing games such as corn hole and spikeball. Get in on some face painting, pin the horn on the rhino, a "face in the hole" photo-booth area, and a photo scavenger hunt. In honor of World Rhino Day, both locations will be donating 20 percent of net profits, doubling the traditional amount, to the American Rhino Foundation on behalf of their customers.

Thursday September 28th, BostonTalks with WGBH and JUGS

Connect with WGBH, JUGS, local leaders, stories, trends and each other at BostonTalks. This September, it’s all about coming together. Hear from three speakers who are doing just that with their careers. Go behind the blue paint with Lyle Blaker of Blue Man Group, and hear how he connects with his audience without saying a word. Matt Peterson of MIT studies how our brains make connections that allow us to know and understand others instantly through facial recognition. The Farmer’s Daughter restaurant owner and Chef Chandra Gouldrup uses farm to table cooking to bring together flavors and connect people over delicious food.

Weekends through October 22nd, King Richard's Faire

We've been to King Richard's Faire a few times but this the year where we know that we will truly have a blast because the Propah Preschoolah is primed for a fun day like this. He is fun loving and won't know what hit him. We'll partake in turkey legs, jousts, tiger shows, games, shopping and more. If you have a weekend free from now until October 22nd, head down to Carver, MA for a super fun day with the King and his subjects!

So what are you doing this month?
