A Sophisticated NYE with SaSy Wines



๐“๐“ฎ๐”€ ๐“จ๐“ฎ๐“ช๐“ปโ€™๐“ผ ๐“”๐“ฟ๐“ฎ is the time to celebrate our triumphs and blessings from one year to the next, and there is no better way than to indulge with a glass of SaSy Wines, donโ€™t you agree?

While I sit in glamour at the Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa this NYE I find myself empowered for the magic that awaits all of us when the clock strikes midnight.

While many cheer 2020 away, I feel blessed for this year and all of the challenges we as a society had to face and overcome. As we take a moment to reflect, we made it through a year that didnโ€™t leave any promise of hope. Despite the struggles we are still standing stronger, smarter and sassier than ever before. For each of us we have seen this year through a looking glass of a wide array of lens some optimistic and others pessimistic, despite how you have viewed it, we must understand this year was meant for us. At the end of it all, it has shown us more about our shadow sides, how to heal humanity, and what unconditional love is.

โ€œBeauty is the smile of a loving heart.โ€

The glamour of it all is we found our authentic self through the chaos and noise that was laid before us, we stood in that strength and more importantly found our power once again. Some had no choice to let go of what didnโ€™t serve them, while others appreciated the grandeur and luxury of another day.

Letโ€™s raise a glass to 2021 with love as nothing shines brighter than a pure heart.

Sophisticated in Wearable Masks

Despite our current reality, we are now consumed with the daily usage of wearing a face mask. Many will debate the level of protection they do provide, whatever your belief is we as a society must garnish ourselves with one – so it might as well be chic.

While searching for a new face mask I have found there are thousands to choose from with the selection only expanding everyday from patterns, protective levels and styles. I personal find Wearable Masksโ„ข a San Francisco based female, minority & disabled-veteran owned small business to be the brand I am proud to wear. Not to mention, they have donated 30,000 masks (since April) to non-profit organizations, hospitals & clinics, homeless shelters, churches and low income families.

When covid-19 hit, our opportunity to raise money through in person events was no longer viable and we wanted to find a new way to support the community which led us to a partnership with Wearable Masks. We are thankful to have found an incredible partner with Wearable Masks in the quality of the product and our aligned values.

Laurie Rockwell, of The League Sports

I have had many complex emotions regarding wearing a mask and at first I rebelled at the thought only because I felt it was a vow of silence. However, as time passes this new norm is not only a way to express our style and personality, it’s also safety that speaks loud. If you have an autoimmune disease or any other underlying health condition, it is essential you wear one while you are among others.

Today I am featuring Wearable Masksโ„ข Sophisticated design. This design doesnโ€™t need an introduction as itโ€™s burberry ambiance pairs perfectly with my vintage LC Mae’s Globetrotter trench coat, black beaded earrings, leather clutch and five inch pumps.

Stand proud while you protect your health and those around you in Wearable Masksโ„ข. For all masks sold on the fundraiser page with The League Sports, 100% of net profits to 2 charitable organizations will be donated (The Color of Change & The Rainbow World Fund). If you purchase one mask, another mask will be donated to a local organization in need. Additionally, for every TLSGold Standard” mask purchased they will match an additional $1 for $1 of the net proceeds.

Determination of the Bull

What does it mean to be determined? Some might say itโ€™s a leading factor in success others might say itโ€™s a way to reach your goals. Despite your perspective on determination one thing is certain, you M_1will always need to obtain a sense of self-determination because without it you would quit never past self-limiting beliefs or barriers.

While others have a slight sense of power to help motivate you to try harder, the truth is at the end of the day you need to be the one to have the determination, drive and dedication to keep moving forward and fighting for what you deserve.

Time and time again, it has been key for me to have strong will and determination despite what has occurred. We all have difficulties which is what makes life a learning lesson in more ways than one. Every one of us has that bull inside of us, even if thatโ€™s us being bull headed. Realize it or not a brick wall attitude is a positive strength. Why you might ask, persistence is a good attribute to have as well as being persistence and stubbornness .They are all close relative of perseverance a trait needed for success. Perhaps if everyone could be more determined like a bull, we all would be much more successful.F_1Sit Side 1F_2___________________________
