Co'Coon Body's Holiday Bazaar Extravaganza benefiting Strong Women Strong Girls of Miami
Sazoneros: In honor of Miami Beats and Sazon's one year anniversary, I officially hosted my first event this week! On Wednesday, December 8th, Co'Coon Body presented a special event at Blue Martini Brickell to celebrate the holidays. Co'Coon Body's Holiday Bazaar Extravaganza showcased the newest trends in shapewear while providing shoppers with an incredible holiday celebration [a special thank you to the Co'Coon Body models from A Concept Fashion Group (pictured above) who struck a pose for MBS]. Throughout the evening, guests purchased their favorite holiday goodies from vendors like Elite Fitness Connection, Robbie Lip Gloss, Cocoa Couture Miami, TAudrey, Razzledazzle Barbershop and Mizmi Label by Danittza Zimic [to name a few]. Blue Martini also treated everyone to delicious hors d' oeuvres and two complimentary drinks. I'm really happy that many of my friends came out to support this event [like my beautiful friend Melissa Exposito- pictured above] because part of the proceeds were donated to Strong Women Strong Girls of Miami. This is a nationally recognized mentoring program which strives to raise the aspirations and self-esteem of elementary school girls.
Lindsay Hyde, President and Founder of Strong Women Strong Girls, started this mentoring organization ten years ago as a freshman in college. Today, SWSG has impacted over 1,100 lives including girls, college women, and professional women. They have exceeded 60 program sites in three cities across America and they've partnered with over 200 supporters [individuals, foundations and corporations alike]. Talk about an empowering social movement of young girls and women! Become a part of the movement by signing up for their newsletter or making a contribution at www.swsg.org.
