On March 30th, wellness social community for women of color OMNoire brought together a tribe of powerful women in Atlanta for the first stop of their multi-city “Live Well. Be Well” tour with Tropicana Essentials Probiotics.
The event, which was held at The Beauty Place, centered around teaching attendees the importance of maintaining a healthy gut and prioritizing probiotics education. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. They are called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy and can be found in some foods, like yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, pickled cucumber, and miso. Doctors often suggest them to help with digestive problems.
Upon arriving, guests were able to sip on refreshing Tropicana Essentials Probiotics flavors, including Pineapple Mango, Strawberry Mango, and Mango Lemonade. Signature drinks were also made with Tropicana juices: the Live Well. Be Well and Welcome To The A.
Tasty bites were also on deck at the event. The Healer's Pantry provided catered food for the afternoon. While DJ LaBonita served a piping hot soundtrack for the event, the menu included a crisp kale salad, rich vegan chocolate pudding, and a tomato and watermelon gazpacho made with Tropicana Juices Watermelon drink.
The ladies were also treated to a bit of pampering throughout the event. celebrity makeup artists and skincare specialist Ariane Turner led a DIY clay mask station. Manis and massages were also made available.
After indulging in a bit of self-care and various sips and bites, guests were able to listen in on an inspirational conversation on wellness. The panel was moderated by OMNoire Founder Christina Rice and featured Beyond Her's Brandi Harvey, PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT founder Aeshia DeVore Branch and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Marisa Moore. To conclude the tour stop, guests left home with OMNoire gift bags filled with product from Dr. Miracle's, Eden BodyWorks, PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT key chains, Tropicana coupons and more.
