AELLA Duster Jacket + $100 Gift Card Giveaway

I was dying for a duster jacket so when I spotted AELLA Collection's Convertible Duster, I knew I had to have it! I've worn it every day since getting it and have been stopped on the street by people way more fashionable than me to compliment me on it, so I figured I'd blog about it and see what you guys think. It's literally the most perfect jacket for spring weather, keeping me warm on chilly overcast days but cool enough on sunny days. It literally flows as you walk, doesn't wrinkle and couldn't be more convenient for travel. I took it with me to Hawaii--it saved my life in the cold airports and plane but also came in handy on windy beach nights. I'm just going to cut to the chase because this is really exciting! I'm giving away a $100 shopping card for AELLA, towards the purchase of my beloved duster jacket or anything else that catches your eye from the collection. AELLA makes clothing for women who are going places. Their collection is designed for the empowered...

How To Treat Pregnancy Pain

I've never been pregnant but these ladies are! Meet my 2 friends: Kristin McGee and Nadia Murdock. They're both fitness experts, like me! But they've got a leg up (or maybe a belly up?) on me when it comes to the baby game as they're both very close to their due dates. Watch the video above. Give the image of Kristin & Nadia a click! Watch it HERE too! In my interview with Kristin and Nadia, I ask how they're able to maintain their fitness routines. Honestly, it seems hard to me (even as a fitness fanatic). I imagine myself wanting to veg out in front of the TV all day. The idea of carrying around all that weight in your tummy seems like a workout in and of itself. Kristin and Nadia go on to share that there's lots of sensitivity affecting your growing belly and other parts of your body, too. Kristin and Nadia use Topricin pain relief creams. It's came as no surprise to me as Topricin is a health industry favorite for its all-natural, non-irritating products. I...

Yoga in a Salt Room. Win This Experience!

I tried yoga in a salt therapy room and loved it! Watch the video above by clicking the "Is Salt Healthy Or Not?" image. You can win the experience I had by reading this post and leaving a comment at the bottom. I'm picking 3-5 winners by November 1st, 2016. Unique workouts are my thing, but doing yoga in a room covered in salt from floor to ceiling was definitely a first for me. I had no idea how it was going to play out until Ellen Patrick explained that we would be doing traditional poses on a thick layer of Pink Himalayan salt at a pace that's much slower and less balanced than we're used to. It would take extra focus and lots of deep breathing, but once we surrendered to the salt and it's uneven surface, we would be in a state of relaxation like no other. All I can say is that I have an entirely new view of SALT! For years I thought salt was my enemy. I had no idea that it could help alleviate my eczema, regulate my sleep schedule, clear up my congestion and just...

Summer Backpack Giveaway!

I'm always on-the-go. Whether I'm running around the city, filming videos or traveling for work, I'm on my feet. And don't get me wrong, that's how I like it. But I have this problem where I carry around heavy shoulder bags and they end up giving me the worst pains that shoot up into my neck. So naturally I'm excited when I find a cute bag that works for my lifestyle and doesn't weigh me down. Keep reading for an amazing GIVEAWAY! This Kestrel Backpack caught my eye about a month ago and I knew I needed it for summer. It's sophisticated yet casual because the top flap and straps are made from a beautiful tanned leather while the rest of the bag is a coated canvas. At first I didn't think it would be safe in the rain but after getting caught in a few springtime drizzles, I can say this bag holds up...leather and all! I love that it's a chic backpack with a square body because I can fit my laptop inside for when I set up office at a coffee shop on a beautiful...

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...

Chef Robert Irvine Didn't Bite My Head Off!

Chef Robert Irvine is a really sweet guy even though he can come off as quite tough on his Food Network shows. I was so honored to interview him about his new book Fit Fuel and shift into fitness because I've been a fan of his for years and an avid watched of every Impossible show he's done. What I didn't capture in this interview is how much he adores his wife Gail Kim who is a professional wrestler and fitness lover. She's clearly a major inspiration to him. During the interview, Gail called him and you better believe he picked up his phone to take the call. So right in the middle of our interview, I got to see this "softy" side of him.  I could've cared less that we had to backtrack a bit and start the question over because I was overjoyed to see that a fitness woman melts Chef's heart. Please watch my interview with the Food Network's popular host and chef, Robert Irvine, and enter to win an autographed copy of his new Fit Fuel book by leaving a comment below or on...

Why You Should Always Ask Yourself #WhereToNow?

I went on a gorgeous road trip in a 2015 Ford Escape with Tri-State Ford to celebrate the “Where To Now” sweepstakes. I made some amazing stops—this one was my favorite—and had a lot of time to think along the way. I kept thinking about how unexpected my life path has been. I’ve worked really hard to get where I am, but if you had asked me years ago whether I’d be in the driver’s seat of my own business and reporting on women’s health, I’d think you were nuts. Life is unpredictable and you could end up anywhere. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look ahead a little and put your dreams into play. If there’s one thing I know it’s that... adventure, opportunity, love and fulfillment don’t just come knockin’ at your door. You have to go out and find them. You essentially have to ask yourself what’s next in my life…what road will I take and where do I hope it will lead me? If you’re not asking yourself these questions, how are you ever going to...

A Hidden Gem on my #WhereToNow Road Trip

I’m not one of those fitness girls that doesn’t eat. Healthy, yummy food is how I reward myself. On my road trip to fit with Tri-State Ford, I’m finding great places to nosh post-workout. I’m venturing to hidden gems in my 2015 Ford Escape to celebrate Tri-State Ford’s “Where To Now?” adventure and sweepstakes! Being on the road over the summer and fall has been magnificent. I’ve logged a lot of ME-time in my Ford Escape on my way to run in the woods HERE and to find balance HERE. Now, I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with a friend. The scenic route is a must as I think about all the things I have to catch my friend, RJ, up on. She and I are both self-made, independent women. So we talk about everything from relationships to business. We’re all about empowering each other. It’s easy to get lost in thought when you’re driving, which is why I’m relieved to have the 2015 Ford Escape’s SYNC 3 easy-to-use navigation system to keep...
