My Unicorn Horn Necklace and its Symbolism

 

This rose gold unicorn horn pendant necklace is so special to me. I'm often seen wearing it because it represents a lot of what I believe in as far as self-confidence, growth and our potential to be better humans every day of our lives. Yes, the unicorn is a fascinating mythical creature that captivates our imaginations but it's also symbolism for feminine energy and innocense. 

 

 

When we're little, we're told that unicorns are hard to find. They remain in hiding so no one can capture them. They're often spotted in forests and on green, rolling hills but they only reveal themselves to special people. They're impossible to catch because they don't want to be your pet. A unicorn is one-of-a-kind, loyal when it falls in love and known for inspiring wonder in the eyes of it's beholder. All of that is true...but it's merely symbolism for a woman who values herself, knows her worth and can envision her future independent of a...

I Was At Grumpy Cat's Birthday!

#FortunaForAll #CollectiveBias #Cbias

Yes, I was at Grumpy Cat's birthday party. I know, I'm way more of a dog person BUT Grumpy Cat is 1) pretty darn cute and 2) really famous. So how could I turn down the opportunity to chill with her as she rings in her 6th?

The party was a delight. We basically surrounded Grumpy, lovingly stared at her, took lots of pics and then ate all her cake. It was a lot of fun and I had my fortune told by a psychic who told me to be careful because I was likely to get pregnant. Hmmm, still no baby yet!

Grumpy is a curmudgeon down to the bone. Btw, her real name is Tardar Sauce. Grumpy Cat is just her stage name. You won't get a smile out of her no matter how hard you try. I mean...she didn't even blow out the candles on her cake and refused to have a slice. At one point, she closed her eyes to spare herself from the sight of all of us.

As a dog person, I pretty much expect all cats to act this way. They're just too good to...

How I Deal with Nor'easters and Stress

New York City is gearing up for its 3rd Nor'easter. Each time it hits, it's the day I'm supposed to travel for work. I've already had to reschedule two TV appearances this year on account of the first Nor'easter. But hey, weather is unpredictable and when it hits, it usually hits hard. There's nothing you can do about it. Unless of course, you're ME...you'll find something to do like STRESS! I was born a worry wort. It's a shame because stress is so bad for your health.

I should really take my own advice and just NOT stress out but that's hard for me to do. Over the years, I've tried a lot of supplements to help calm me down. There are some that work really well for me that contain Magnesium powder that you can mix with water. I like them fine but I'm not always in the mood to down a full glass of flavored magnesium water. Lately I've been turning to vitamins, which in my opinion are much easier to take. I get nutrients to help me calm down and feel more balanced.

At first,...

Clear + Brilliant Cures Melasma | See My Results!

I've fallen in love with the Clear + Brilliant permea laser treatment because it's helped to clear up my melasma and has improved the tone and texture of my facial skin. It's taken me 3 months to write this review because I had a series of treatments done and wanted to wait to see my results before blogging about whether it worked or not. I made a short video documenting my treatment and the visible changes in my skin. Also, there's a $200 Mizzfit reader gift code towards Clear + Brilliant or any other suitable laser treatment, so keep reading to get that :)

Watch the video below or link to it here: How I Got Rid of Melasma on My Face | My Clear + Brilliant Experience

I'll start off by telling you that around May 2017, my skin developed some pigment issues. I had brown patches and splotches of large freckles on my cheeks, around my lips and across my nose.

I never really had freckles before, other than the few that would appear on my nose in the summer. Family...

My Egg Freezing Experience and Fertility Story

Hi guys. This blog post is a personal one where I'm just going to open up about what I like to call my "fertility experiment". I know tons of women are going through what I recently experienced or maybe they're just beginning to think about it. Either way, I hope my story in some small way helps.

Let me start by saying that I never thought I'd be the girl (or rather woman) who would have to freeze her eggs. When I was younger, I always envisioned myself married with kids by my age (I won't divulge the number...sorry...but I am sure you can Google it). As I got into my 30's, my career became so freakin' important to me. I made it a priority. I promised myself I would succeed in what I loved to do before I'd even consider having a family.

Well, that time has finally arrived for me. I'm now at a place where I feel comfortable in my career and need to start evaluating what I want to do about having kids. I won't lie. I'm still very confused. If you read my 2018 New Year's...

Female Hair Loss | PRP to the Rescue!

I made this investigative health video because I noticed I was losing a lot more hair than normal in the shower. It scared me. No one likes the thought of losing their hair! I began to research the topic primarily to see what I could do to better nourish my hair and maintain the strands that weren't abandoning me. In the process of doing my research, I realized this was something I had to share with you.

Please watch the video below or link to it here: Women Hair Loss Stories | How PRP Naturally Stimulates Hair Growth

Female hair loss is a big problem. There are several kinds as you will find out from watching my video. No matter what the reason for the loss is, the effect on the individual is always the same. She is emotionally distressed and her self-image dramatically suffers.

I have dedicated myself to lifting women up and connecting them to solutions, but I have to be honest, I never expected to make this video. When I first heard about the PRP treatment and...

Power Through Your Period! #GetInMotion with Me!

I get the worst periods. We all do. It can be hell on earth some months, right? Especially when it hurts to move. But it’s actually common knowledge in the women's health world that if you maintain physical activity while you’re menstruating that you can actually alleviate cramps, bloating, aches and pains.

It all comes down to circulation, breathing fresh oxygenated air, drinking lots of water and getting your endorphins going. I like to equate it to working out while you’re going through heartbreak. At the beginning, you’re like “how could this possibly make my situation any better?” But once those beads of sweat start forming and you’re releasing toxins and somewhat forgetting about HIM (or her), exercise feels like the best idea you ever came up with!

Scorned lovers and periods need to be dealt with in the same way, because ultimately the pain will pass. You just have to get in motion to speed up the process! Pushing through your period is possible when...

Peek Inside the Mizzfit Box for February!

Hiya! It's Feb 1st and we're just 15 days away from #MIZ18 shipping out! I'm immensely excited because this box was so easy to design. I knew exactly what I wanted to do from the start. Sometimes the boxes can take a while to design because there's so much involved when it comes to getting so many amazing brands and products on board. I love the process and love it even more when everything comes together without a hitch. So let's talk about this mailing...even though it's supposed to be a surprise ;)

Without getting myself into too much trouble with Quarterly, here's what I can reveal about #MIZ18. This box is called:

2018 Healthy Resolutions and Glam Haircare Box.

It includes items that will help you check those resolutions boxes like 1) being healthier & losing weight and 2) living your life to the fullest and traveling more!  The other half of the box is focused on HAIR!

I get a lot of comments and questions about my hair from all of you who read my...

My 10 New Year Resolutions for 2018

It's January 30th and I've had a lot of time to think about my top 10 New Year's resolutions. I have a tradition of writing them down, framing the list and mounting it on a wall where I can see it every day. This tactic has definitely worked in the past but I'm over it. I can focus on my goals without the guilt trip. As you get older, there are less distractions in life that matter. Goals are easier to see. Agree or not?

My ten 2018 resolutions that follow come from the heart and from my ambitious desires to be my best, most successful self. I decided to do a countdown since #1 is definitely the most important and, of course, I want you to read the whole blog post. Sorry, is that mean?

Another thing... I work fast. Within the month of January, I completed some of these resolutions already. That's what the ✅ stands for.

#10. Meet Jane Fonda.

It's my dream to meet Jane Fonda. She's my QUEEN. She's beautiful, smart, unapologetic and has used her influence throughout...
