New York City from the JW Marriott Essex House - Win a 2-night stay!

⬆️ ⬆️ WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE ⬆️ ⬆️ New Yorkers don't get to experience their city as a tourist very often. Life goes by very fast here and you're constantly rushing somewhere, hopping in and out of subways, cabs, Ubers, Lyfts, Vias and whatever else is next as far as our ever growing transportation options. It sounds crazy, but the energy and pulse of New York City can make you take the city itself for granted. They say you can always tell the difference between a real New Yorker and a tourist because the locals never look up. We're too fixated on where we have to be next that we don't appreciate our skyscrapers and landmarks. Well...this New Yorker (me!) decided it was time to change that. I planned an Uptown Manhattan stay-cation and checked into a room with a view at the JW Marriot Essex House right across the street from Central Park. My stay-cation that you're reading about can be your next vacation simply be entering the sweepstakes contest at the...

Quarterly Unboxing + #MIZ12 Spoilers

#MIZ12 is shipping out in just a few days and I'm sharing SPOILERS! As you might already know, the theme of the box is GYMSETTER. I blogged about why I chose this theme and announced the Golden Ticket prize that comes with it RIGHT HERE! I honestly can't wait to see who wins. I hope it's YOU! Because then I get to meet you! We also decided to add some smaller Golden Ticket prizes to the pot. Heard of Fleeps? They're funky flip flps with an ankle-wrap closure that you can customize with color. Have you ever lost a flip flop while wearing it--as in, it flew backwards off your foot? It happens to me all the time when I'm walking fast or rushing somewhere. This won't happen in Fleeps because of the ankle-wrap but the true draw is how cute they are! Before I get into #MIZ12 Quarterly Box spoilers, I want to share this unboxing for #MIZ11. I like to give people who aren't subscribed yet a look at what goes into my Quarterly Boxes and how I put them together. There's meaning...

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...

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...

Spring 'Lean with my New Quarterly Box

My newest Style Up 2 Shape Up Quarterly Box is ready to ship out! It's called SPRING 'LEAN AND DECLUTTER YOUR FIT ROUTINE and it's set to be delivered around May 20th. To tell you more about the box (tagged #MIZ11), I've decided to answer questions sent to me by Quarterly Co and Mizzfit readers. 1. What's the theme for #MIZ11?  Can you explain why you chose this? Spring is always that time where we clean out and clear away the dust and clutter in our lives. I recently cleaned out my clothes and shoe closet and ended up throwing a bunch of stuff away and donating the rest. Afterwards I felt lighter, more focused and organized. Have you ever thought about Spring cleaning your fitness routine too? I'll admit, I didn't start until the last year or two when I realized I was accumulating too much stuff. I have a chest full of fitness gear and equiptment in my apartment, and OMG, the things I found inside of it had me rolling on the ground. Like, cheesy fitness dvd's that...
