Orange County, California (PRWEB) September 10, 2008
As kids are back in school and the holidays approach, women throughout the Orange County region can take a quick break from their hectic, overscheduled lives to relax with their girlfriends at the ultimate day out for women - the Head to Toe Women's Expo! Set for October 10, 11 and 12, 2008 at the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa, more than 10,000 members of the "girlfriend brigade" are expected to attend the ultimate weekend for women.
Presented by Ralph's Grocery, the Head to Toe Women's Expo returns to Orange County giving mothers, daughters, and girlfriends a chance to reconnect during a weekend of shopping, pampering, makeovers, inspirational speakers and more. Attendees can stroll through a village of apparel, jewelry, handbags, accessories, wine, gourmet foods, and home décor. Guests enjoy the affordability and accessibility to fashion finds from nearly 200 local and regional entrepreneurs and businesses. Expo apparel will even be featured in two Mardi-Gras inspired Fashion Shows during the weekend.
New this year to the Orange County Head to Toe Women's Expo is the appearance by Constance Ramos, color specialist and host of HGTV's Color Correction - which airs nationally Friday evenings at 9 p.m. In Color Correction, Ramos bails out homeowners with a particular color disaster, one room at a time. Ramos, who was also one of the original members of the design team on the popular Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, will share her home makeover tips so you too can avert color disasters and will answer audience questions to common color dilemmas in a presentation slated for Saturday, October 11 at 2 p.m. There will also be a drawing for one lucky guest to win a color and design consultation with Ramos at the Head to Toe Women's Expo.
With an emphasis on health, happiness, style and a balanced life, the Head to Toe Women's Expo offers something for every woman. Also new this year is inspirational lifestyle presentations by regional authors and experts. Executive coach and author Saundra Pelletier will present "The Battle of Balance: How to Get More Out of Life." Women will learn how to "never confuse motion with action" and to win the battle of balance they so desperately crave. Claudia Johnson from EXCLAMATIONS! Gifts arrives in time to share the art of creative gift baskets. Gardening guru Tiger Palafox from Mission Hills Nursery in San Diego share tips and trends on how to develop fragrance in your garden and bring those sweet smells into your home.
For culinary aficionados, Chef Sean An of SLOWFISH in Huntington Beach will present the latest in Asian cuisine prepared by a slow cooking method, an extremely healthy and progressive way to prepare food. Chef Michelle Della Penna, founder of Fork in the Road Foods, is also scheduled to appear, providing a fresh take on how good and sustainable, organic cooking can be at home. Plus, on Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Ralphs Grocery will present the Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Party where guests can sip and savor the best tastes for the holiday season. The demonstrations and samplings are always a crowd favorite.
Gauging from the enthusiastic feedback from last year's expo, the upcoming Head to Toe Women's Expo anticipates being a smashing success. The show originates in San Diego, where the idea for a comprehensive show was hatched five years ago by Debbie Adelman and Rosemarie Gibson of Wiz Marketing. Many Orange County residents attend the San Diego Head to Toe Women's Expo since its inception. So, due to the demand, they decided to give Orange County their own Head to Toe Women's Expo. The show aims to make the most of every moment for busy women who juggle family, career and everyday obligations. The Head to Toe Women's Expo truly is the ultimate day out for Orange County women.
