AELLA Duster Jacket + $100 Gift Card Giveaway

I was dying for a duster jacket so when I spotted AELLA Collection's Convertible Duster, I knew I had to have it! I've worn it every day since getting it and have been stopped on the street by people way more fashionable than me to compliment me on it, so I figured I'd blog about it and see what you guys think. It's literally the most perfect jacket for spring weather, keeping me warm on chilly overcast days but cool enough on sunny days. It literally flows as you walk, doesn't wrinkle and couldn't be more convenient for travel. I took it with me to Hawaii--it saved my life in the cold airports and plane but also came in handy on windy beach nights. I'm just going to cut to the chase because this is really exciting! I'm giving away a $100 shopping card for AELLA, towards the purchase of my beloved duster jacket or anything else that catches your eye from the collection. AELLA makes clothing for women who are going places. Their collection is designed for the empowered...

Mizzfit at the Woman's Day Red Dress Awards

I attended the 2017 Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards to join the fight against heart disease as a guest of CocoaVia® brand. I'm a sponsored CocoaVia® brand influencer, but all opinions are my own*. What an event! I truly did not expect the evening to be as spectacular as it was—it completely blew me away! Upon entering the Jazz at Lincoln Center atrium right above Columbus Circle, I was enveloped in a soft red glow and a room full of happy people buzzing around. It was a fantastic sight, with wait staff lined up to hand you a drink. Everyone (with their phones in camera mode) was drawn to the gargantuan heart “centerpiece” pumping good vibes through the room. I grabbed a drink (red bubbly to match the event’s color theme) and sashayed around during the cocktail hour in my red dress, matching every single woman in attendance. Not only is it so much fun, but it’s truly an honor to attend events like this one. Empowering women to better health...

Most Comfortable Fall Styles

I recently appeared on CT Style to talk about fall fashion trends built for comfort. Watch the video above! We see pictures of celebrities and popular fashion bloggers in amazing outfits, strutting down the street, all the time. But are they really comfortable? Because most high end and experimental fashion is NOT. While I have die hard respect for the fashion world and 'fess up to wearing uncomfortable looks myself (in my quest to slay), it's just not fun being in a state of discomfort. Because even though you might look like a million bucks all you're really thinking about is changing the moment you get home. Or in my case, removing your heels under the table when you think no one is looking. I can't bear heels that pinch my toes! Every brand featured in the video above is one of my favorites for making pieces that feel good on your body. None of it is sponsored...just things I discovered on my own. When I moved to a new apartment recently, I re-assessed my wardrobe and...

New York City from the JW Marriott Essex House - Win a 2-night stay!

⬆️ ⬆️ WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE ⬆️ ⬆️ New Yorkers don't get to experience their city as a tourist very often. Life goes by very fast here and you're constantly rushing somewhere, hopping in and out of subways, cabs, Ubers, Lyfts, Vias and whatever else is next as far as our ever growing transportation options. It sounds crazy, but the energy and pulse of New York City can make you take the city itself for granted. They say you can always tell the difference between a real New Yorker and a tourist because the locals never look up. We're too fixated on where we have to be next that we don't appreciate our skyscrapers and landmarks. Well...this New Yorker (me!) decided it was time to change that. I planned an Uptown Manhattan stay-cation and checked into a room with a view at the JW Marriot Essex House right across the street from Central Park. My stay-cation that you're reading about can be your next vacation simply be entering the sweepstakes contest at the...

I personally love the Phoenix Rising collection. Grippy Socks are OUT Grippy Shoes are IN   Grippy socks for...

Summer Backpack Giveaway!

I'm always on-the-go. Whether I'm running around the city, filming videos or traveling for work, I'm on my feet. And don't get me wrong, that's how I like it. But I have this problem where I carry around heavy shoulder bags and they end up giving me the worst pains that shoot up into my neck. So naturally I'm excited when I find a cute bag that works for my lifestyle and doesn't weigh me down. Keep reading for an amazing GIVEAWAY! This Kestrel Backpack caught my eye about a month ago and I knew I needed it for summer. It's sophisticated yet casual because the top flap and straps are made from a beautiful tanned leather while the rest of the bag is a coated canvas. At first I didn't think it would be safe in the rain but after getting caught in a few springtime drizzles, I can say this bag holds up...leather and all! I love that it's a chic backpack with a square body because I can fit my laptop inside for when I set up office at a coffee shop on a beautiful...

My Road Trip with Ford

The Fall of 2015, I had the most amazing time road tripping throughout the Tri-State area with Ford Motors in a 2015 Ford Escape. We filmed all my fit adventures while on the road and gave away road trips and incredible lease deals to people who entered the #WhereToNow sweepstakes. The concept of the beautifully captured campaign was that an exciting adventure could be as close as your backyard. You don't have to travel far-away to experience something new, healthy and active. We often take for granted the wonderful parks and historical sights within the region we live in. These are great places to work out and find inspiration. So why not make a day trip of it? The #WhereToNow campaign is no longer viewable on YouTube or TV (my road trip was all over the news!) as it came to an end in December 2015. But please check out these 15-second mini-clips and let me know what you think. What kind of fit road trips have you been on lately and what tips do you have to share?...

What Is Waist Training? Is It Safe for Fitness?

You've heard good and bad things about waist training. You've also read my take on it before here. But I'm going back to the basics because this is something I feel strongly about (as a waist training fan) and I realize that many of you might have unanswered questions about the growing trend. What is waist training? Waist training is the process of reducing and correcting your waistline. It's an age old practice from Victorian times that has made a comeback--in a modern way--in recent years. There are all kinds of waist trainers. Like tons! I kid you not...there are waist trainers for wearing under your everyday clothing, for wearing over workout clothes and for wearing to look exceptionally sexy with lingerie. Whatever floats your boat! I'm personally an expert when it comes to waist trainers for shaping and firming your midsection ('cause you know how much I love fitness!) In the video above, you will see me talking about fitness/sport waist trainers that are...

The Juggling Act

My life is anything but normal. 8 years ago I left a career in corporate advertising to pursue my dream of reporting on health & fitness. I ended up creating a brand, launching Mizzfit.com and becoming an entrepreneur and TV host.  It’s crazy where your passion can take you if you let it. Mine landed me a huge campaign with Ford Motors! I refer to my life as a juggling act because there are so many facets of what I do that need to be in constant motion. I have what seems like a billion projects going on at once, and if I ignore one of them—well, you know what happens—the balls, the chainsaws and flaming sticks come toppling down on you and scatter. It’s risky business juggling a lot in your life, but for me personally, I live for the thrill! To keep everything afloat, balance is a necessity. I strive for it because as much as I love work, I want to make time for other things too. Like walking my dogs—a job in and of itself with how they tangle me...
