Save the Oceans with Me and adidas!

These are my Ocean-safe Sunscreen Tips + info on the adidas Oceans Run in NYC.

Look at me! All decked out for summer fitness and spending oodles of time in the sun! The funny part about that last sentence is that I’m terrified of the sun even though I love how good it can feel on the skin. I leanred in my late 20’s and early 30’s that the sun can destroy your skin, and how easily one can contract skin cancer. So I don’t play that game anymore of going out in the sun without any sunscreen. Nope! The big news, when it comes to sunscreens, is that the FDA is reevaluating the safety of every single chemical sunscreen agent until November of 2019.

Already, many sunscreen brands and products using chemical ingredients have started to change their labels or discontinue certain lines. While many changes are still happening and we won’t get the FDA’s final results until November, what we do know is that MINERAL SUNSCREENS have been found to be the safest for both human...

$5,000 College Scholarship for Students of Latino Descent

As a #CafeBusteloPartner I’m thrilled announce that Café Bustelo has launched its El Café del Futuro Scholarship once again in partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU).

If you’re a college-bound student or graduate student of Latino descent please KEEP READING because this year Café Bustelo is giving away a total of $100,000 in scholarship funds to 20 deserving Latino students. That could be YOU!

Watch my 1-minute video below to hear what it’s all about!

All twenty students selected will receive $5,000 each to go towards their college or graduate school tuition and educational expenses. To enter, you must meet the requirements of the scholarship (which I will link to below) and write a compelling essay about your Latino heritage, family and the community in which you grew up.

How have they impacted your desire and motivation to obtain a college degree? Additionally, you’ll need to thoughtfully describe what you...

Happy International Women’s Day 2019!

What a cool day, right? It’s OUR day but also a day to celebrate all the historic achievements of the women before our time. If someone were to ask me who I’d be celebrating today it would be Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo and Maya Angelou. All 3 women are icons who inspire me and whose life stories make me want to be a legend myself.

When I started Mizzfit.com over 10 years ago, my mission was to help motivate women to exercise and find a way to balance an active lifestyle with everything else they were doing. It started as a mere idea and became my passion, my mission and ultimately my career! A lot has evolved since the creation of this blog and expanded beyond this catchy url, but what has remained strong is my desire to LIFT WOMEN UP.

I hope the image that you see above make sense now :) I'm holding one of my best friends, Michelle Thomas, who I've known for years and actually met in a tabata fitness class. Michelle is like a sister to me. She’s someone I really...

Making it in NYC: Mentally & Physically

I officially moved to New York City when I was 24 years old. I already knew the city pretty well as I used to drive down into the city during my college years at Cornell University. Back then, a 5-hour drive seemed like nothing to experience an exciting weekend in the big city.  The summer before my junior year, I was accepted into a psychology internship at Cornell Weill Hospital and got to spend the entire summer living in the West Village and working hard at a job in line with my major.

Gosh, that was a long time ago! Here I am now, going on 15 years of living in this crazy city! Who knew I’d never leave? I fell in love with fast pace, forward thinking, urban lifestyle that’s unavoidable here. You either love it or you don’t and that’s what separates the “visitors” from the real New Yorkers. They say 7 years classifies you as a legit New Yorker. By that time, you’ve probably seen enough to either pack up your bags and leave or decide it’s home sweet...

Stylish Eyeglasses On The Cheap!

Tell me if you can relate? You go to the eye doctor. You browse their eyewear. You fall in love with a pair of frames that look amazing on you. You ask for the price. BOOM! It's $350! And the excuse for the price is always the same thing: "Well, they're DESIGNER." Honestly, most of the time, I've never even heard of the designer that makes the glasses. The brand name means nothing to me.

Maybe it's because I don't wear my glasses 24/7 as I'm mostly in contacts. I'm a part time eyeglasses wearer but I still value the look and feel of prescription eyewear on my face. I just don't believe in paying a crazy amount of money for 1 pair of glasses that I might get bored of within a few months. If you can relate, then you're going to appreciate my discovery.

Firmoo is an online optical store that I was lucky enough to find a the right time when I was in need of new glasses. Their deals are INCREDIBLE! I decided to test them out by uploading my prescription and browsing their frames...

New Career Move: Home Shopping!

One thing is certain, I feel like I don't blog enough! So many bloggers say that...I know...as it can be really hard to keep up. Especially when it comes to pouring your heart out (with the right words typed in a quiet place) as I'm about to do right now...

So here's the deal, things in my life over the past 10 years have changed so much! My business (Mizzfit LLC) has evolved in ways I never expected and much of the work I do are projects that have nothing to do with blogging. I will never abandon it though because it's how I got my start as an entrepreneur...and really, it's how the concept of "Mizzfit" began. On top of that, I just really like to write. I can't imagine not having a space to do that.

So, without digressing more, I have entered the world of home shopping. I must admit this has always been a dream of mine. For many of you, home shopping is a joke and it's something that probably never appealed to you. For others, well, it's how they shop! To be perfectly...

Peek Inside the Mizzfit Box for February!

Hiya! It's Feb 1st and we're just 15 days away from #MIZ18 shipping out! I'm immensely excited because this box was so easy to design. I knew exactly what I wanted to do from the start. Sometimes the boxes can take a while to design because there's so much involved when it comes to getting so many amazing brands and products on board. I love the process and love it even more when everything comes together without a hitch. So let's talk about this mailing...even though it's supposed to be a surprise ;)

Without getting myself into too much trouble with Quarterly, here's what I can reveal about #MIZ18. This box is called:

Holiday Shopping Event with Swarovski

I hosted a fabulous shopping event with Swarovski this month to share my favorite looks and styling tips with my friends and holiday shoppers. As you can see from the 2 pieces I’m wearing, I made sure to sparkle. The matching Tabloid necklace and cuff are my favorite pieces from Swarovski’s current collection. It tied my whole outfit together for an old Hollywood glamour look.

Our event took place at the Swarovski store at The Shops at Columbus Circle. It was amazing to have my friends, health & wellness community and followers through social media there to browse the collections, socialize and, of course, shop!

The holidays can get a little crazy with crowded and frantic shopping so it was nice to be able to host this event and curate pieces that would make excellent gifts for friends, family and that special someone.

We had plenty of bubbly and delicious bites for guests to enjoy.

Swarovski wouldn’t do it any other way!

These were some of...
