RECAP: GIRL'S II WOMEN VISIT THE PALM BEACH OUTLETS

Girls II Women www.simplysassysstyle.com
Growing up in a single family home, I understand the struggles that exist every day for an underprivileged young person. The financial hardships and the day to day stress of being less fortunate are all too familiar. I thank God for placing the most amazing grandparents and mentors in my life. That old African proverb, "it takes a village", is so true.

When I think back on my past, I remember that we as a family always looked happy by the smiles on our faces. However, life was consistently very tough. It was a merry-go-round of bad memories due to recurring struggles...money struggles. It wasn't until I became a young adult and started to experience different and amazing things, that I realized life didn't have to be that hard, and that I can "CHOOSE MY OWN DESTINY"! Which is why I was extremely excited when Palm Beach Outlet's invited me to participate in a community event, where I would be discussing fashion blogging with several aspiring young ladies from the group called, "Girls II Women". GIIW "is a nonprofit organization, established in 1997, to help girls in undeserved neighborhoods in the Florida area to achieve their full personal and professional potential".
Upon arrival, we started our day at Saks by having breakfast, taking a tour of the fab store, teaching the girls about careers in retail, and how to put together interview outfit's. After we finished, we headed to BJ's Brewhouse, where we had a delicious lunch, and the guest speakers, including myself, provided the young ladies with a brief overview of how and why we chose our current profession. We also explained to them why education is so important, and to follow their passion. Last but not least we headed over to Jockey, where the girls learned about the proper bra fitting techniques, participated in a Q&A session and won super cool prizes, which included a $60.00 Jockey gift card. 
I had such a great time hanging with the awesome girls of GIIW! The entire experience was amazing and very informative! I am also really happy to have had the opportunity to partner with the PBO's for this event. 

Thanks again for a great opportunity!

HOW TO MAXIMIZE THE COMFORT AND STYLE OF A MAXI DRESS

Hello Sassy People:

I have always loved a really good maxi! The simplicity and versatility of the dress is just wonderful. While living in Michigan, I was very limited on when I could wear them due to the four seasons. However, since moving to Florida my options are limitless, and this style of dress has become my "go to" garment.

I am always on the go, so after breaking my ankle I have really worked to incorporate maximum comfort into my wardrobe, and the maxi has yet to fail me. There are specific places that I frequent regularly which require me to be super comfortable and look simply sassy. 

Hanging out at the movies is one of these places and a major highlight of my week. Because I usually see 2 or more movies during each visit, I have to ensure I maximize my comfort level. I sit for hours and may snack on popcorn and a soda, so I can not imagine wearing restricted clothing during this time. Same goes for a good restaurant. I participate in a lot of restaurant reviews, and need clothing that will give in the belly area while I am sampling all of the tasty foods. There is nothing worse than not being able to enjoy a good meal due to clothing restrictions! LOL! Another reason why I really like these dresses, are because the style makes it easy to alternate footwear. They look amazing with sneakers, sandals or wedges. While I am running in and out of the mall/department stores sneakers or a low sandal works great and keep my feet happy! :)  
That is why I am so happy to have learned about the amazing online company called, Tmart.com. They sell a variety of products, and their Tmart Dresses are simply gorgeous. The Women's Dress Bohenia Style V-neck  provides everything I am looking for in a maxi dress and is super cute. I have worn it a few times since receiving and I am very pleased!

To learn more about tmart.com you can also connect with them via FaceBook.

Thank you Tmart for the super cute dress! I really love it!

Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember To Always...
Stay Sassy!

HOW TO DRESS FOR STYLE AND COMFORT WHEN HANGING AT A FOOD FEST

STYLE AND COMFORT  www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:

Well guys I have been at it again, hanging out on the streets of South Florida having a blastttt! Last Sunday, one of my blogger buddies and I had a chance to attend the Miami International Foodie Fest. I so enjoyed her company, and I got a chance to have Chocolate covered bananas, which I absolutely love! My mouth is watering just thinking about them!!! #yummy! Chocolate covered bananas might not be a big deal to some of you, but to a Michigan girl they are everything!!!!

The event wasn't as big as I thought it would be, but as I stated above we had a really good time. There was a nice turn out and the weather was really nice, which was great, because before attending I had major concerns with what I would wear to the event.

See below for the things I took info consideration before heading out to a food fest!

Comfy Shoes are a must - There is a lot of walking during a good food fest, so you always want to ensure you have on comfortable shoes/boots. I noticed several young ladies wearing 2 to 4 inch heels, and all I could think was "Ouch"! 

Cross-over Body Bag or Hand bag with decent length strap - You always want to have a super cool/cute bag with a decent strap attached. We never want to do clutches or bags that you have to fumble with. It makes for a very uncomfortable day and you do not want to spill anything on your super sassy garment.

Shades/Sunscreen - What can I say, it’s South Florida! So you don’t want to forget your shades or your sunscreen. The sun is extremely hot here in the land of the heat, so it is always wise to have on a pair of cool shades and SPF (30 or higher), no matter the skin color. I choose to wear my over-sized glasses this day, but I definitely had on sunscreen. I guess I was brave because it has been rather cool, so the sun didn't bother me at all! #thankgoodness! :)

Water or something cool to drink - I usually have a bottle of nice cold water with me but I decided to go with a nice cold smoothie instead. To top off the extremely tasty bananas, I also purchased a soothing smoothie made with; bananas, strawberries, mango, orange juice and ice! OMG! I was in heaven! LOL! It kept me cool the entire time I was there.

We are all individuals and most of us have completely different styles. However, the steps I have listed above are some of the basics to assist in ensuring comfort and remaining cool while enjoying a food fest on the streets/beaches of SoFlo.

50 SHADES OF GREY INSPIRED JUMPER - #TBT

fifty shades www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:

I don't know about you guys, but I am completely and urgently obsessed with the movie and now the trilogy, "Fifty Shades Of Grey"! I have now seen the movie twice and purchased Book 2 and 3. But please excuse me, because I have been on a 4 year hiatus from dating, so any chance I get to indulge in a sexy and heated romance I am there! LOL! I am laughing but I am sooooo serious! 

I purchased this jumper and wore it right before the weather started to get cool here in South Florida, and I never had a chance to complete this post. However, I thought it would be a perfect time, considering my crush on, "Fifty Shades Of Fu**ed Up", and it is TBT! :)

SoFlo FORD DRIVING SKILLS FOR LIFE RAISES AWARENESS - #DSFL 2015

Ford Driving Skills www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:

This past weekend, I had a chance to attend the Ford Driving Skills For Life Event at, Sun Life Stadium, in Miami Gardens, FL. While there, I met a Charlize Theron/Reese Witherspoon stunt double, learned several lifesaving techniques, had the opportunity to drive/spin out in a super cool Ford Mustang and also received a Certificate of Completion at the end of the training. It was truly an amazing day!!!!

Upon arrival, all participants (teens, other high risk drivers and parents) were given an overview of what to expect throughout the half day program, and were also introduced to the professional drivers that would be teaching the courses.
This FREE comprehensive program, allows participants to get behind the wheel and go through four of the Ford DSFL skill exercises: Hazard Recognition/Accident Avoidance, Vehicle Handling/Skid Control, Speed/Space Management and Impaired Driving/ Distracted Driving.

The Field Sobriety Test and Impaired Driving Simulation (hands-on and web-based), were a breeze before actually putting on the Fatal Vision Simulation Goggles; which is "a hands-on prevention tool that allows people to experience with a sober mind what it's like to be under the influence of alcohol." Once applying, each one of us struggled to maintain our equilibrium, balance, and reaction time. To be perfectly honest, this was a really eye-opening and tough experience! Performing the exercises with, then without the preventive tool really chances your perspective on driving under ANY influence!!!!!  #justsayno!!!!

After toughing it through the Impaired Driving activity we moved right into the Distracted Driving exercise. Most of us has either been the perpetrator or on the passenger side of a vehicle, in which someone is texting, attempting to make a call, applying makeup, eating, changing a CD etc. etc. However, as we are all aware the most dangerous is that darn cell phone. What is it about that little device that we won't put it down to LITERALLY save our lives???? We all know the consequences, but yet and STILL most won't and don't keep it out of sight and mind until destinations are reached. 

All participants went from excellent driving, without the device in hand, to weaving in and out of the double lines, almost hitting stop signs, and while taking a picture, I almost turned left when the sign clearly said to turn right! But I am sure you ALL can understand! I couldn't miss an opportunity to take a pic of this really awesome red mustang so that I could blast if on social media and get tons of likes!!!! #putthephonedown!!!!
Next, I took part in the Vehicle Handling exercise. This activity is great for learning how to recover your car if losing control in heavy rain or snow. We drove really fast in an oval while caster wheels under the car slightly lifted the rear of the vehicle and reduced the tire’s grip. This caused the back of the car to slide when least expected, and in return the driver had to regain control of the vehicle. This of course was my favorite part of the entire day! Although, I was initially very nervous, after a few times of going through the exercise I started to relax and enjoy the adrenaline rush. LOL!
If given the opportunity, I would recommend this program to be taken by EVERYONE, not only teens and high risk drivers!!!! As time goes on we all need to brush up on our driving skills. Trust me this is true damage control! You will get a first-hand experience of the risks we take every day while out on the road! You will walk away with a different outlook on your daily driving experience as well as life!!!!


More About Ford Driving Skills for Life – A Safe Driving Solution 

Ford Driving Skills for Life (Ford DSFL) was established in 2003 by Ford Motor Company Fund, the Governors Highway Safety Association, and a panel of safety experts to teach newly licensed teens the necessary skills for safe driving beyond what they learn in standard driver education programs.

The program is international in scope touching not only the United States but many areas around the world. The basic premise behind Ford Driving Skills for Life is to provide a step in the learning process, providing new skills and information not currently shared with newly licensed drivers in the basic driver education courses.

Training is conducted in both hands-on and web-based curriculum and the entire program is available at no cost. Training conducted under the Ford Driving Skills for Life program addresses both the inexperience factor as well as issues surrounding distracted driving. Results over the past ten years of this effort have been outstanding. For best results, we encourage both teens and parents to engage in the instruction together.

YOUNIQUE ALL NATURAL 3D FIBER LASH AND LIP GLOSS REVIEW

Hello Sassy Ladies:

We as women love "Feeling Beautiful, Looking Beautiful, Being Beautiful both inside and out", and it is obvious that most of us are on an insatiable quest to do so! I know from personal experience, that when I don't feel or look this way, it can and it has ruined my day week! LOL! 

Since I started blogging, I have become really good friends with several wonderful beauty bloggers, and while doing so, they have provided me with tons of great makeup tips; tips that have really made a noticeable difference. One, being the Younique brand. I haven't had the chance to use the entire line, but the ones that I have are worth discussing.
younique makeup www.simplysassysstyle.com
The products are natural based; all hypoallergenic, cruelty, paraben, carcinogen, and harmful chemical free. Which is great for those with problematic skin, such as myself. The items that I have had the pleasure of trying are the Lucrative Lip Gloss, and the forever trending, Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

The lip gloss is long lasting, glides on very smooth, moisturizes the lips wonderfully and looks great layered. I also love that is has a very faint, non-distracting smell, and that there is no taste. #veryimpressive!!!!
My lashes are not what I would consider to be naturally long, so I am always looking for a length/thickening enhancement. However, my search may be over!!! Since first trying, the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, it has become one of my "go to" products. It noticeably enhances and magnifies the appearance of my lashes. Although, I must admit, when I tried it for the first time I was a little apprehensive, due to the 4 step process. I normally don't like adding to many different products around my eye area, but to my surprise, it is non-intrusive, super easy to apply and very effective. 

Steps To Follow Below:
Step 1: Apply mascara of your choice (I use the Luka Waterproof Mascara).  
Step 2: Next, apply an even coat of the Transplanting Gel to the lashes.
Step 3: Then before Transplanting Gel has time to dry, quickly apply the Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. 
Step 4: Last but not least, seal the Natural Fibers with one more coat of the Transplanting Gel. NOTE: You can apply as many coats of 3D Fiber as desired.  

I absolutely love what I have seen of this line! It is simply amazing, and I would absolutely recommend it to all women!!! And as you can see above, I have a personal testament that IT REALLY WORKS!!!!! The Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes actually works miracles! LOL!!!

Have you ever used Younique products? If you have, what are your favorite(s)????

Watch AS Co-Founder of Younique, Melanie Huscroft, demonstrates the proper application of the 3D Fiber Lashes for amazing eyelashes.
The Younique Mission:
Younique's mission is to uplift, empower, validate, and ultimately build self-esteem in women around the world through high-quality products that encourage both inner and outer beauty and spiritual enlightenment while also providing opportunities for personal growth and financial reward.
