shape up 70’s styleJust like everyone else we know, we here at Trixie’s are working hard to improve our bodies along with our hair, nails & skin.  You know our philosophy — taking care of your outside reflects the work you do on the inside — and we see everyday how a great haircut or a new nail color can change  your whole outlook. 

With this in mind, we thought it might be fun to take a look through our collection of vintage beauty books over the next few weeks to see what pearls of wisdom they might offer.

Here in Family Circle’s classic How to Stay Pretty and Trim, they suggest a jumprope workout to “Jump into shape in 4 easy steps.”  If you desperately need to add this workout to your repertoire, stop by and we’ll copy the instructions for you. (Thanks to Leanne for the great book!)

In addition to jump roping for fitness, you might consider joining us for shamrock runthe 30th Annual Shamrock Run being held downtown on Sunday, March 16th at 8:00 am.  There are some motivated friends of Trixie’s who are all set to run, walk, crawl or gasp their way through the 8k, so we thought it might be fun to organize Team Trixie’s.  We promise to go out for beers as soon as everyone makes it across the finish line and I’ll work on some Trixie’s tshirts for us in the meantime.  If we go as a group, the entry fee is a little less and besides, we need all the motivation we can get!  Let us know if you’re interested, and we’ll get it together.  Comment here on the blog to give us your thoughts!
