I Went Sulfate Free for My Hair + How I Organize My Shower

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #FreeOfSulfates #CollectiveBias I recently had a treatment done to relax the natural frizziness in my hair that becomes a problem for me in the summer. My hair cooperates beautifully in the winter but it’s not a fan of humidity. The treatment I get done at my salon is great because it makes my hair smoother and more manageable to style. Most importantly, I can wear down in the hot weather without it turning into an uncontrollable frizzy mess. It has definitely cut my blow drying time in half too! My stylist informed me that the treatment required “upkeep”. In order to keep it active, I would have to make some changes to my daily routine, like going sulfate free with all my hair products. This was initially very frustrating because I already owned so many hair care products that I’d now have to replace but considering the treatment was costly ($400!!!) it only...

What happened to my eye??? #Chalazion

Hey guys, so last weekend I had the worst thing happen to my eye. For some reason the glands in my eyes decided to act up and stop working normally. The reason for this is still unknown but I'll get into that later. The backup created a huge "chalazion" on my eyelid (also called a hordeolum), which caused me so much pain and discomfort over the course of a week. The inflammation made it nearly impossible to open my eye and it was sore to the touch--like someone punched me in the eye socket. I could barely touch it with my fingertip without wanting to cry. I tried to wait it out because everyone was telling me I just had a stye. I totally appreciated receiving everyone's recommendations. I think the apple cider vinegar, boric acid and hot compress tips were all wonderful but my situation was too far gone for these remedies to heal. Plus, those hot compresses hurt so bad! I ended up at urgent care where I didn't get the right treatment but at least I got a few doctor...

Summer Body Revival #MIZ15

Let's talk about summer. Right...it's not officially here yet, but it's time to prep. I know you know what it feels like to try on that new bikini or pair of short shorts. Your body kind of rejects it, right? It's like the hottest summer essentials that every magazine is telling you to buy suddenly feel more unforgiving than necessary. But that's quickly fixed. It's just a matter of thinking ahead. There's a transition period we have to go through. If you embrace it, your skin won't seem as pale and you won't be as hesistant to show off your figure. Layers be gone! Trust me, I go through this every year myself and it's the reason I decided to tackle the problem with my newest Quarterly Box #MIZ15. I want every woman to love her summer body at the start of summer. I mean, why can't that be possible, right? Personally, I've made up my mind to feel INCREDIBLE from Day 1 and I'm inviting you to join me. I've chosen amazing products for the Mizzfit Box inspired by recent...

Cellfina Banished My Dimples: Watch me get treated!

It takes guts to post your bare ass on the internet. The "before" picture is definitely where my vulnerability lies. My mission has always been to offer up the best advice I could possibly give and to provide my readers with honest feedback on everything I try. So here it is: my experience receiving the much talked about Cellfina treatment. Viewer discretion is advised as I do show parts of the actual procedure. Don't worry, nothing is bloody or disgusting, or anything like that! But, I know some people are sensitive when it comes to needles. I know I am! Watch the video below... Cellfina is intended for long-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thigh areas of women. I only had my butt treated because there was no dimpling on my thighs. I do have some wavy cellulite-ish lines on my back thighs but I'm hoping to get that treated with laser later on. A lot of people have asked me 1) how much Cellfina costs and 2) what kind of pain level is...

Got workout soreness? Relief is here!

Exercising frequently and playing sports takes a toll on your body. There's always going to be soreness and injury. You really can't avoid it if you're passionate about fitness and like to push yourself hard. It happens to newbies, too. Especially when your body hasn't quite acclimated to routine training. Over the years, I've learned a lot of tricks and natural healing methods to help my muscles recover faster and get me back into the game. These are just a few... Cold & Hot Therapy - Make sure to ice areas of inflammation and swelling followed by soaking in a hot bath to relieve pain/soreness. Epsom Salt added to a hot bath is extremely soothing for your muscles. Or, any kind of high magnesium based salt. Essential oils (mixed correctly) can relax and calm tense areas. Homeopathic biomedicines like arnica, calendula and echinacea can be just as effective as over the counter pain relief pills and narcotic pain killers. And they're better for...
