Women’s Philanthropy Board to Host Women’s Self-Care Workshop Featuring Say Yes to the Dress Star: Atlanta Lori Allen
Body of the review
The Women’s Philanthropy Board, or WPB, will host “Say Yes to You”, a winter lunch and workshop for women on Wednesday January 26 from 11:30 am to 6 pm at the Auburn University Hotel and Center Dixon conference. Saying yes to yourself, in other words taking care of yourself, is not going back to aging. It’s about learning how simple changes in daily routines can help women feel and feel better. Self-care gives women the confidence, strength and energy to fulfill the myriad of roles they have in society.
The lunch will feature Lori Allen, star of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta and author of Say Yes to What’s Next: How to Age with Elegance and Class without Never Losing Your Beauty and Sass. Workshop sessions will feature experts in personal care, including nutrition, sleep, exercise, skin, hair, and fashion.
Allen is one of the world’s leading experts in bridal sewing with his boutique Bridals by Lori considered one of the best wedding salons in North America. In 2012, Allen made the courageous decision to share his personal battle with breast cancer in the TLC special Say Yes to the Cure: Lori’s Fight. She was recently named to the Forbes 2021 list of “50 out of 50” influential women.
The workshop portion of the day’s events will run from 1:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and will focus on taking care of your interior and exterior, especially as you get older. Workshop panel experts include: Donna Burnett (nutrition), Dawn Schueller (exercise), Bridget Wingo (sleep), Amy Camp (skin and makeup), Linda Arnold (hair) and Brook Slezak and Laura Kirkpatrick (fashion) .
