Bridging the Gap Campaign!



Today is an exciting day with the launch of an unprecedented campaign, “Bridging the Gap,” where 100 Millennial and 100 Midlife Influencers are coming together to blur the boundaries as we believe we are stronger together!   With today’s launch of Bridging the Gap, we are stepping up to take part in an unprecedented campaign for social change.  As women from multiple and disparate demographics, we have much to offer one another and are encouraging Reciprocal Mentorship.  What exactly is Reciprocal Mentorship?  It’s a new and empowered way of bringing the generations together by each sharing their unique gifts with the other.  To learn more about the campaign click here.


Fashion Trends and Friends is so honored to be part of this campaign and to be partnered with our new millennial friend, Sabrina Howard, also known as Girl with the Hipster Glasses.

Meet Sabrina Howard!

Sabrina is a twenty-something, born and raised in Chicago and is currently earning a PhD in Los Angeles.  All three of us Fashion Trends and Friend girls hail from Chicago so we felt an instant kinship the minute we met Sabrina.  In fact she was back in Chicago visiting her family when we first spoke.

Over the past 5 years she has developed a passion for holistic wellness.  She is dedicated to figuring out how to live her best life through nutritious food, physical activity, and a positive mindset.

Sabrina began practicing yoga seriously in 2014 and in the summer of 2016 became a 200-hour certified yoga instructor.  While talking to Sabrina, we learned that her love of yoga wasn’t overnight.  Rather she grew to love it over time and it developed into a passion.  She doesn’t proclaim to be a fitness guru or a nutritionist/chef but she does appreciate a healthy lifestyle and thought it would be cool to have people tag along on her journey to live healthily and happily.  In fact if you are in Los Angeles and are interested in arranging a 1 to 1 yoga session, contact her at  She would love to connect with you and help build your practice.


As a young woman working hard to earn her PhD in Urban Studies and full-time blogger, this Millennial is showing the world how to live a healthy sustainable life!  Sabrina’s blog is filled valuable information on Health and Wellness, Recipes, Workouts and her other passion, Travel.  If you’d like to learn more about Sabrina check out all her social media.






Fashion Trends and Friends is grateful to be part of the Bridge the Gap Campaign. As Catherine GraceO, the founder of the campaign says, “Isn’t it time we came together to bridge every single gap? As a society, we’ve made substantial progress in letting go of many labels and divisions, yet when it comes to ageism, it doesn’t get talked about. We intend to change that together. There is energy and innovation in youth and wisdom and experience in midlife. Let’s share with one another and embrace both for the greater good.  Deep inside of every Midlife Woman, a Millennial exists and within every Millennial lies a future Midlifer. We invite you to join us as we show you that age is just a number while it’s your attitude about life that keeps  one young or makes one old. With the concept of Reciprocal Mentorship, we encourage these demographics to embrace one another and share their unique wisdom.”

A heartfelt thank you to the Sabrina Howard, the Girl with the Hipster Glasses. We are so honored to work with you on this campaign and hope to develop an ongoing relationship where we can help one another!  We are definitely #StrongerTogether!
