This week, we're stretching, we're running, we're partying, and we're getting free clean makeovers. Yay!
Run, Lulu, Run!
On Friday, August 18th, head over to Proxy for the Bay Area launch of Lululemon's Test Truck—a chic mini-gym on wheels where shoppers can hop on a treadmill to test-run Lulu gear before they buy—as part of the brand's new More Than Miles campaign. With a DJ and drinks, it'll be a party. Then, watch for the truck to roll up at more locations across the Bay Area through September 1st. // Free to attend; 4-8pm, Aug. 18 at Proxy, 432 Octavia St. (Hayes Valley), facebook.com/events

If you spend enough time eating clean and training dirty, it's easy to forget what makeup even is. Thankfully, Portland's Alima Beauty is sending in their team to give us all free, 20-minute clean beauty makeovers at Credo this Saturday. All products are free of phthalates, sulfates, parabens, synthetic dyes, and all those other nasties that can lurk in big cosmetics brands. Go ahead, get ready for date night. // 11am to 2pm, Aug. 19 at Credo, 2136 Fillmore St. (Pacific Heights), credobeauty.com; register for free at eventbrite.com.
