2014 Weekly Challenge #23: Gear Yourself up for Success

2014 Weekly Challenge #23:  Gear Yourself up for Success

Let's talk about your bra. Yes, you read it right - your bra.

We all know that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong sized bra (thank you Oprah for telling us!). But did you know you may not be wearing the right sports bra?

The very first sports bra was literally two jock straps sewn together. Thirty-some years later, technology has come a long way! Scientists have figured out (finally!) that a sports bra needs to do more than stop up and down movement, it needs to take care of side to side movement as well. Most bras stop only up and down movement, which could be part of the reason more than half of women suffer breast pain during exercise. The right bra, however, can eliminate this pain for about 80 percent of women.

Shop for Charity comes to Oakdale April 29 & 30

OAKDALE - On Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30, a unique event is coming to Oakdale. An opportunity to shop for quality brand name clothes at a huge discount, mingle with friends and to help out several local charities while doing so. All money raised for this event will stay in the community and will go to local non-profits.

This two day event will take place at 1484 East F Street. It's one you will not want to miss and will include: up to 5,000 designer clothes, shoes and accessories (for both women and men), as well as a special preview and purchase night, for those that want to be first to the racks.

San Francisco group "A Miner Miracle" will for the first time take this event outside of their own showroom and bring it to Oakdale.
