How I Decide What to Put In My Boxes | The Bianca Jade Quarterly Box

I get this question a lot: How do you decide what to put in your subscription boxes?  Well, it's easy! I simply put the things I absolutely love inside each mailing. Buuuuuuuut, each individual item selected also has to be relevant to industry trends and achieving physical results. I test EVERYTHING on myself first, research the item profusely and determine whether it is something that will enhance the lives of my subscribers but also immediately win them over as they're opening the box. I want them to come to expect great surprises and not be able to contain their excitment and curiosity from the minute the box is delivered. So, even though it's easy...it's also very hard. It's the reason why my team takes 3 months to plan and design each mailing. Just figuring out the theme of the box can take a while, too, because I want to come up with something that will resonate with my subscribers. I realize that it's a box based on the things I personally love and use but I...

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...

Model Brad Welling Peaks In His 50's

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw pictures of model Brad Welling. He's strikingly handsome with silver hair and abs that put men half his age to shame. His modeling agency TRUE Model Management calls him their "unicorn", which I believe is the right word to describe him because he's an anomaly! Brad is 56 and what's even more compelling than his good looks is the fact that he didn't always look this way. In fact, up until just a few years ago, Brad was a skinny out-of-shape father coping with the stress of raising his newly adopted daughter all on his own. The best day of his life was becoming a dad but he lost so much weight as he took on the endless responsibilities of fatherhood. You can see that he looks older and gaunt in the face in the pictures above. Raising a child isn't easy as every parent knows but Brad didn't want to let go of his health and lose himself. The year after his daughter was born, he hit the gym and started working out with a trainer. Brad...

Last year's trends are yesterday's news. You've got to trade what's OUT for what's IN. Check out my updates on popular fitness trends and why you should be following them...because as I always say, they WILL motivate you to hit the gym and get in shape.

Tribal Tats are OUT Tribal Prints on Activewear are IN   Unless your under the age of 15 its time to toss out those Tribal Tats (y'know, those silver and gold temporary tattoos) and trade them in for some activewear  with tribal patterns from Teeki, which let you express yourself with all the fun symbolism of those temp tats but in a more funky, age appropriate way. I personally love the Phoenix Rising collection. Grippy Socks are OUT Grippy Shoes are IN   Grippy socks for...

Best Way To Wash Swimwear? Let's Ask The Laundress!

I just got back from a 2-week vacation to Kauaí where I had the adventure of my life! I hiked to secret beaches, jumped into the ocean off rocky cliffs, slid down mud trails, went stand up paddle boarding and pretty much lived in a bikini the entire time. My bikinis got sweaty, salty, muddy and very sandy. I rinsed them out with cold water at the end of each day, but when I returned back home to NYC I realized how bad they smelled. I mean...it made sense, I was literally hanging out in the jungle and ocean 24/7. I think a starfish even peed on me! So I'm posing a question to The Laundress, a glamorous detergent company I've been using for the past year. The Laundress was actually in my last #MIZ10 Quarterly Box and I trust them completely because they make the best eco-friendly laundry and fabric care. Here's my Ask The Laundress question... HOW DO I WASH MY SWEATY SWIMWEAR? I'm desperate to cleanse my stinky bikinis that reek of the outdoors and revive...

Mizzfit Fitness Gloves In Production!

I'm so excited to report that the strength training gloves I designed are officially in production. I teamed up with G-LOVES to do a special collaboration series, which includes boxing wraps too. Yay for cute boxing wraps, FINALLY! I'm dying with anticipation because... I really took the time to get the designs and colors right. The prints are inspired by my love for bananas, and the FACT that bananas are the official fruit of fitness. I mean, everyone knows that. And, there's no question that you should always GO BANANAS for your workout! Am I crazy for being so ridiculously excited about fitness gloves? Hmm, I don't think. Aside from being a major milestone in the world of fitness fitness there's actually more to this story. When I first trademarked MIZZFIT back in 2009, my dream was to create a fitness accessories collection. Last year I made Mizzfit barre socks with Pointe Studio and this year it's gloves and wraps with G-LOVES. I consider these big steps in the...

I'm sharing 3 fashion-based products that are worth investing in to inspire you to work out as summer leaves us.

I own more than a few duffel bags and this tote is a nice change allowing me combine 2 bags into 1. The metallic colors are...

Graffiti Leggings Giveaway + Big News

I'm giving away a killer pair of Graffiti Beasts leggings and announcing big news. Let's start with the leggings because I want you sweating in style STAT. Graffiti Beasts leggings feature the art of real street artists whose art can be seen on the streets of Lisbon, Barcelona, Milan, New York City and many more cities across the world. They are urban, colorful and you won't find them at stores like Lululemon. I discovered Graffiti Beasts on HauteAthletics.com, an online fitness fashion boutique that caters to a funkier gym-wear to street-wear demographic. I've talked a lot about Haute Athletics this summer and love that they carry stuff you won't find elsewhere. Go take a look! I like that Graffiti Beasts leggings are bad-ass and punk. Since there are women rockin' this style and attitude in their everyday clothing, clearly there should be activewear that expresses the same vibe! Check out Graffiti Beast leggings in my recent Qinetic Live fitness fashion...

Sunnies For Yogis + GIVEAWAY!

Yoga happens outside all the time, so why shouldn't there be sunnies for yogis? Don't yogis need protection from the sun, too? Of course they do! That's why I'm enamored by Vira Sun, "the original sunnies for yogis". I'm giving away 2 pairs of these babies, so make sure to keep reading through the end. I first saw a pair of Vira Suns on my yoga-instructor-friend, Lauren Imparato, during a yoga class in the middle of Times Square. She was wearing them with such ease, I wondered how they didn't slip off. I had to get myself a pair! Here they are, arriving to me in the mail! Yessssss! What do you think? I absolutely love these sunglasses! They have a wayfarer style (which is so classic that they're always IN) and they're made with polarized, UV400 protection lenses. Not only do they keep you from squinting but they'll save those precious eye corners of yours from sun damage. If you're 35 or older (not that I am...), this is EVERYTHING.  Vira Sun's...
