Naked And Not Afraid

I could spend an eternity wanting more…never satisfied with what I’ve got. Or, I could be happy with the skin on my back and the beautiful things I have in my life at this very moment. I could be happy with my dreams, whether or not they manifest. I could be happy with everything that makes me, Me, even if other people criticize. I could be proud of where I stand and how I choose to live…without the things I’ve been brainwashed to think should happen…or the things I’ve been told are a part of every successful woman’s life. I’ve always wanted more. Who doesn’t? But I’ve hit a point on this journey, despite my insatiable career ambition, where I feel OK with what is. Stripped down to nothing, I’m proud of my spider veins, perma tan lines and the stretch marks on my ass.  It’s a huge relief to bare it all..to unload my insecurities, my fears and personal failures. I’m not trying to be a model or get a ton of likes on Instagram, I’m just...

Hydration Tips for Health & Glowing Skin

I'm 35 years old and what makes me a strikingly different person than my 20-year-old self is that I care a lot more about my health. With the exception of an ocassional late night Insomnia Cookies order, I take waaaaaay better care of myself now. God, if I could go back and undo all the terrible things I did to my body and skin in my 20's I'd be in a time machine in a heartbeat! And I'd smack myself silly before getting into all those damn tanning beds! If I had only known to do what works for me now. Oh well, stupid 20-year-old self, good thing you no longer run the show! One of my best pieces of advice for women in their 30's is to always stay hydrated. It really doesn't matter the time of year or season, we need water for our bodies to function effectively, to lubricate our joints, revitalize our skin and have good poops. There are more reasons but these are my favorites. In fact, I'm going to share 5 hydration tips with you that never fail me. But since I like to tell...

How To Use A Lip Crayon, Even For Fitness!

During this past New York Fashion Week 2014, I was invited to Style Coalition's beautiful influencer event at their loft in the Meatpacking District (right around the corner from Mizzfit headquarters). The Influencer Lounge was lavishly set up for Style Coalition's bloggers and vloggers to primp, enjoy a cocktail and rest their sore feet in between fashion shows. I got a gel manicure, had some champagne and made a huge discovery! While getting a makeup touch-up, I was introduced to Burt's Bees new line of lip crayons. Umm, I had no idea Burt's had expanded their product line so much so I was excited to get the scoop and sample it! I must admit, lip crayons were a little foreign to me even though I already owned one (thanks to Michelle Phan's Ipsy Glam Bag). I just didn't know how to use it correctly. So, I let the makeup artist at Style Coalition do her thing (as I meticulously watched her so I could reproduce the effect later)...and now, of course, I'm...

Shocking Health Tips on Skincare to Vajayjays!

Boy, have I got some great info to share with ya! These health topics are HOT and in no way normal, which is why I like 'em and can't wait to hear your thoughts. So be sure to comment on what you like, dislike or just can't imagine doing (in the comments section at the end). Before I start, full disclosure... I've tried and tested the skincare tips ONLY. The rest, I'm very open to but have not yet tried only because the treatments were not made available to me. For the record, I did ask. But since all these topics are trending, I feel it's my duty to spread the word. As a human guinea pig (which I commonly call myself), I'm pretty much game to try anything. So you never know what I'll stick into my feet or up my vajayjay tomorrow! That was meant to be a joke...kind of. Hope you laughed. Watch the video above (click the image) or keep reading for more detailed info than I was able to provide in 4-minutes on the Great Day St. Louis show. I promise you it's worth the...

Need A Push? Advice? This Box Will Empower You!

This is the box I would've given myself in 2007 when I was really lost. Both lost inside myself and career-wise. I'm really excited to share it with my subscribers and newcomers because it's packed with advice and actions that I found during my course of self-discovery and re-invention. Box #MIZ04 is READY TO GO! If you didn't already know, I have a Fitness Fashion Trend Box with Quarterly Co. And I'm pretty stoked right now because Box #MIZ04 is in production after 2 months of designing and perfecting it. For this upcoming box, I wanted to share how I got my big idea to create Mizzfit.com and leave the corporate world behind. I'm sure a lot of you have found yourself in a slump before or maybe you're in one now. Whether it's health/fitness or career related, I understand and want to share what worked for me so we can get you moving in a new, forward direction! The theme of #MIZ04 is Work Out Your Passion. Expect to find not only fitness goodies in...
