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...

How To Gift A Man

I've been known to give good gift. But shopping for men is hella hard. Especially when it's for one of the most important men in your life--your dad.  I have 1 rule when I give a present: it has to be healthy or inspire active living. That's what I'm known for so I stick to that. Tip #1  Develop a style or consistent approach to gift giving. Men don't like to be kept in the dark, because they know whatever you give them they'll have to top when it's time to shop for you. If you set a level of expectation, they will ALWAYS look forward to your gifts and rave about them in conversation. It feels good to see the presents I give people being used to move and explore. I knew this year for Father's Day I was going to give my dad a travel bag that would help him do this. Tip #2  Always include a card at the top of your gift. Men are often unaware of thoughts behind actions. Let him know why this gift is special and what he means to you. That way...

Most Stylish Fitness Tracker - Get 20% Off!

I've never fallen in love with a fitness tracker that could be worn as jewelry until I came across Mira. The tracker itself is a black shiny oval shaped piece that clips into a metal slip-on bracelet. The 2 pieces together are minimal and sleek in away that far out-styles FitBit, UP by Jawbone, Nike+ Fuelband and similar black band trackers. Additionally, Mira was designed exclusively for women. I won't say it's cheap because it's not. Mira retails for $169 online. But what you're paying for is great technology, an app that doesn't baffle you but inspires you and a piece of jewelry that looks good with anything you wear. The 2 metal bracelet finishes--Midnight Purple and Brushed Gold--blend exceptionally well with silver and gold tone jewelry. Most people won't even notice you're wearing a tracker because it looks like a fancy bangle. Here are a few more reasons I love my Mira: To activate the clock, all I have to do is press down on the black screen. The...

GoRoll: Gym Bag Overachiever

-- This is a guest post by Laura Diniwilk -- Hello, everyone!  My name is Laura and I am a first time Mizzfit guest contributor as well as a fitness enthusiast and beauty/lifestyle blogger.  Bianca gave me the opportunity to review GoRoll because I mentioned I was looking for a carryall to go from work to the yoga studio. The KarmaRu by GoRoll ($89) meets my needs and then some.  I am a sucker for multitasking products, and this product serves as a gym bag, yoga mat sling, purse, locker, masseuse, and stretching partner.  I have never seen a similar product with so many unique features before! The KarmaRu is large enough to hold everything I need for a post-work yoga session.  I roll up my yoga clothes, brush, hair tie, and water bottle in the bottom of the tube and stick my mat on top.  At first I was confused about this design because I didn’t want to lose the lid or have to carry my mat separately, but the smart folks at GoRoll...

Lotus Flower On Fleek

Lotus flower designs are constantly seen on yoga clothing and accessories and they always look the same. The flower is soft, subtle and BORING! adidas has taken the complete opposite approach and given the lotus flower a makeover. Actually, let's call it a RESURRECTION. The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport. The new Lotus Print collection by adidas Originals is urban, striking and feminine in a cool, unapologetic way. During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group. I had to smile and agree--can't help but love these pieces! The lotus flower in real life is exquisite. It 100% deserves a beautiful graphic representation. The reason yogis love this flower so much is because of its meaning and ties to Buddhism. The symbolism of the lotus is purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. In it's natural...
