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!

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

Winter Skincare Tips for Youthful, Hydrated Skin!

Hola amigitos! I'm back with some winter skincare tips that I shared recently on a morning show. Today seemed like the perfect day to write this blog because it's the coldest day of the year here in New York City. It's the type of cold that makes your throat dry just with one inhalation of the air outside. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Your face can take quite a beating in this weather. Here are my tips for the following skin issues that I think we can all relate to in the stark wintertime. And if you can't bother to read, no worries, just scroll for my video below which covers everything!

Dry Flaky Skin: What can you do?

I recommend investing in a good moisturizer that has ingredients known for infusing your skin with hydration. For example, I am a big fan of Cetaphil with Hyaluronic Acid. This is a newer range that Cetaphil came out with last year. The Hyaluronic Acid is the secret weapon as it both locks in moisture and plumps the skin. It comes in a Daytime...

I’m with ATKINS! Fitness alone isn’t keeping me in shape.

I have so much to share. In 3 weeks, I’m celebrating a big birthday. I’ll refrain from sharing the number because candidly I don’t feel my age. Google it if you must, but all that matters is that I’m alive and survived the NY Marathon this year. 2018 has been an epic year for me both personally and with work. I grew as a host entering the home shopping market and doubled my income through Mizzfit LLC. I’ve traveled the world, written about luxurious resorts and wellness spas, and made new friends with whom I plunged into the Caribbean Ocean. Let’s just say it’s been a good year.

While all these fantastic events have been playing out in my life, I started to notice some changes physically. I’ll admit to decades of being that fitness girl who eats whatever she wants. I’ve always exercised daily and trained hard to avoid having to diet or watch what I eat. This approach worked for me for a long time. But it’s not working anymore. My metabolism is changing. Give...

The Grind is Never-ending. Here's What Fuels Me...

It’s the day after Christmas. You know what that’s like. You’re basically throwing out all the torn wrapping paper, running the last load of dishes used to host your guests and thinking about the next few days ahead before the New Year.

It’s A LOT. There’s so much excitement around the holidays and leading up to Christmas that we forget about everything post-holidays. Especially the act of getting our life back in order and stabilized. Is there even time for goal setting? I did a little of that myself in early December but really need to finish my list. It has to be more than just a mental list. If you don’t write it down (or type it out), well…you know how that goes.

I find that gaining my balance post-holidays starts with establishing my morning routine for the year. Believe it or not, there was a time when I didn’t make my own coffee or my bed. I was a mess. I would throw all my sheets and pillows on top of my bed in a pile and just pick up my coffee...

Finish What You Start: How ‘Bout That For Your 2019 Resolution?

Here's a different approach to your 2019 New Year's resolutions... Let me begin by saying I’ve always been a runner. I blog about it a lot. But this blog post is about something different, and I’m just going to use running as an example.

Sometimes in life we say we’re going to do something and we begin going through the motions of completing the act but never quite get to the finish. I’m not blaming you here (even though I know you're guilty of it), I blame myself. It frustrates me that I set goals and flake out on myself. So in 2017, after running enough races to qualify for the 2018 New York Marathon, I decided that I wasn’t going to flake. I registered for the marathon. It was a done deal.

Did I want to run a marathon? Not particuar.ly I’ve run so many already. Also, I know what it does to your body, feet and most of all, your social schedule. When you have to wake up for a Saturday morning race that begins lining up at 7.15am, you’re SOL for grabbing...

Healthy Mediterranean Salad + DIY Tahini Dressing Recipe

GO TAHINI with me! There are so many reasons why so...of course, I’m going to list them out for you :)

First, tahini is a savory, lemony and delicious dressing that you’ve tasted before but maybe had no clue how to recreate…and guess what, it’s SO EASY! You can make this dressing at home to pour over your salads that you take to work or that you order out from restaurants. When I make it, I like to make enough to last me the week because I always eat a hearty salad for lunch and a small one at dinner. I try to avoid luscious dressings that cancel out the fact that I've eaten a healthy salad. A light yet creamy tahini dressing, in my opinion, is the wise way to go.

2nd, Tahini is made from a fine sesame paste, and for this recipe I will be using only the best from Mighty Sesame Co.  Sesame seeds are packed with vitamins and minerals that are good for you, like calcium, magnesium, vitamin E and healthy fats.

3rd, unlike other pre-made dressings (which might...

Ultra Fit Fest: The King of Fitness Festivals

The craziest thing happened! I was invited to Scottsdale Arizona for a fitness festival called Ultra Fit Fest put on by Michelob Ultra. I've never partnered or worked with a beer brand before so I was a bit hesitant at first to accept. But I'm so glad I did because it was honestly one of the most fun media trips I've ever been on.

Michelob Ultra invited me on this trip, all expenses paid, and all they asked of me was to share my favorite parts of the festival with all my followers on social media. If you follow me on instagram, you probably saw me working out like crazy in back-to-back fitness classes. And then, chilling by the pool in the hot Arizona sun by the afternoon. It was literally over 100 degrees every day! If you didn't catch all of that on Insta, well, now you know exactly what this trip entailed...

Actually, it was a lot more entertaining than how I just described it. But to me, the non-stop fitness offerings and pool were the highlights, and I was a happy...

Destination Happiness with Swisse at Wanderlust 108

I attended Wanderlust 108 in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park with Swisse Wellness to check out their charming installation called Destination Happiness. If you’ve never heard of Swisse before, they are a premium vitamin and supplement brand founded in Melbourne, Australia that has quickly launched across the globe.

Their entire philosophy centers around “health & happiness”, which the company shortens to call H&H in terms of everything they do. So it only makes sense that their village at Wanderlust 108 was called Destination Happiness.  Here are a couple of shots of me hanging out with Swisse very early in the morning before all the Wanderlust Festival activities were in full swing.

You can’t see it in this picture, but to my right there was a braiding station and then to my left there was a massage booth. Both of these were awesome perks for Wanderlust 108 attendees who planned to run and do yoga during the festival.

I won’t lie, it...
