Hi, hello, and welcome to our very first 'From the Founders' post!

 

Just in case we haven't met yet, allow us to introduce ourselves - we're Laura and Maggie, co-founders of OXB.

Each month, we'll be popping up here (and, in your inbox, too - should you want to sign up for our newsletter) to share a whole host of fun, including a few of the links and things that the two of us have been lovin' lately, as well as some updates on the latest and greatest from Team OXB. Consider it a friendly virtually hello from us to you!

As always, thanks for reading and for being a fan of OXB. We're pretty happy you're here.

xo, Laura + Maggie

 

  

LINKS + THINGS WE'RE LOVING RIGHT NOW

goDEEP Collagen Protein Power

It's been HOT in Denver, and smoothies have been a staple of our summer diet. Our key ingredient in each of our blended bevvies is a scoop of collagen-boosted protein power from goDEEP, a black female-owned company we're big time fans of.

Girlfriend Collective 

It may come as no surprise, but our whole team's wardrobe is mostly athleisure these days. We crush on a lot of brands, and one that we're currently giving high fives is Girlfriend Collective, which offers sustainable, ethically made activewear in sizes XXS-6XL.

Third Culture Bakery Matcha 

It's official - we're addicted to matcha, all thanks to Third Culture Bakery, a Bay Area-based bakery that recently planted its roots down the street from our studio in Denver's RiNo neighborhood. These bright-colored caffeine boosts are the best way to start our day (and we always add in one of their signature Mochi Muffins® to boot).

 

OXB NEWS

Introducing OUR EXERCISE STORE!

That's right, y'all - it's OXB IRL. Now open in Denver, our new brick-and-mortar shop is the best place around to shop all things sweatproof (we may bejust a bit biased) in Mile High. Swing by if you're local, or plan a visit on your next Colorado trip. Follow us on Insta and learn/see more here.

 

Check us out on the Velvet's Edge with Kelly Henderson Podcast!

We recently made a guest appearance on the podcast to chat with Kelsey about OXB (obviously), the ups and downs of running your own business, and our tips n' tricks for working with your friends. Give it a listen here.

 

 

OXB GIVES BACK

In June, we celebrated pride, love, and the LGBTQI+ community all month long, and thanks to YOUR support, we donated 5% of all purchases - aka a total of $3,802.35 - to ACLU, True Colors United, It Gets Better, and Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

 

JULY'S OXB ALL STAR

Our Exercise Chain
This summer, we've got major heart eyes for this incredibly versatile convertible 3-in-1 chain. No matter how you sport it - be it a necklace, bracelet, or anklet - Our Exercise Chain looks good whether you're doing cardio bursts at the gym or drinking cocktails on the patio.

 

 

WE'RE CURRENTLY STOKED ABOUT...

THE OLYMPICS!
The countdown to the Summer Olympics in Tokyo is ON and we are here.for.it. We've had the Olympic trials on repeat, and are staying glued to the TV and the Team USA Insta to watch these top-notch athletes make their way closer to gold, silver, and bronze.
