Stagecoach Inn: A Cozy Hudson Valley Retreat

Welcome to Stagecoach Inn! I hope you enjoy this review of mine as much as I enjoyed the 2 days I spent here at Stagecoach Inn in Goshen, New York. You're probably wondering, where on earth is Goshen? At least that was my first question when I heard about the little town. I've spent 17 years in New York state but had never heard of it. Goshen is a town nestled in the Hudson Valley region of many inns. It has a quiet and relaxed vibe but don't underestimate it because it's got a lot of history to it! Goshen is a wonderful place to retreat to in the coldest of winters or the warmest of summers! I personally loved it because it was a short drive from New York City for me to reach: a whopping 30 minutes without traffic. I was drawn to Stagecoach Inn on January 10th of 2019 because the holidays had just passed and the idea of going somewhere quiet, cozy and charming was a dream. I rented a car and before I knew it, I was driving into the curved driveway of 268 Main Street....

Winter Skincare Tips for Youthful, Hydrated Skin!

Hola amigitos! I'm back with some winter skincare tips that I shared recently on a morning show. Today seemed like the perfect day to write this blog because it's the coldest day of the year here in New York City. It's the type of cold that makes your throat dry just with one inhalation of the air outside. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Your face can take quite a beating in this weather. Here are my tips for the following skin issues that I think we can all relate to in the stark wintertime. And if you can't bother to read, no worries, just scroll for my video below which covers everything!

Dry Flaky Skin: What can you do?

I recommend investing in a good moisturizer that has ingredients known for infusing your skin with hydration. For example, I am a big fan of Cetaphil with Hyaluronic Acid. This is a newer range that Cetaphil came out with last year. The Hyaluronic Acid is the secret weapon as it both locks in moisture and plumps the skin. It comes in a Daytime...

Glitter and Shimmer Responsibly: Makeup Tips for Sparkle

What a year 2018 was! I brought it to a close by sharing my best makeup and beauty tips on various morning shows throughout the Midwest. Glitter, shimmer and glow looks are trending but how can you execute them in a way that doesn't make you look like a hot mess? Trust me, I've been there. Back in my teens (and probably early 20's) I used to swim in glitter, leaving trails of it behind me, especially on anyone's face I happened to kiss. We're going for something better now though: the elegant way to glitter, shimmer and glow!

So, I suited up in this sharp LAHIVE outfit to visit the set of Better Kansas City at KCTV to talk about glittery looks and application techniques. Thankfully, I had Miss Belinda Post as my host! I've done beauty segments with men before, which makes for funny moments but it's not as fulfilling as sharing your favorite makeup products with a gal pal.

I’m with ATKINS! Fitness alone isn’t keeping me in shape.

I have so much to share. In 3 weeks, I’m celebrating a big birthday. I’ll refrain from sharing the number because candidly I don’t feel my age. Google it if you must, but all that matters is that I’m alive and survived the NY Marathon this year. 2018 has been an epic year for me both personally and with work. I grew as a host entering the home shopping market and doubled my income through Mizzfit LLC. I’ve traveled the world, written about luxurious resorts and wellness spas, and made new friends with whom I plunged into the Caribbean Ocean. Let’s just say it’s been a good year.

While all these fantastic events have been playing out in my life, I started to notice some changes physically. I’ll admit to decades of being that fitness girl who eats whatever she wants. I’ve always exercised daily and trained hard to avoid having to diet or watch what I eat. This approach worked for me for a long time. But it’s not working anymore. My metabolism is changing. Give...

The Grind is Never-ending. Here's What Fuels Me...

It’s the day after Christmas. You know what that’s like. You’re basically throwing out all the torn wrapping paper, running the last load of dishes used to host your guests and thinking about the next few days ahead before the New Year.

It’s A LOT. There’s so much excitement around the holidays and leading up to Christmas that we forget about everything post-holidays. Especially the act of getting our life back in order and stabilized. Is there even time for goal setting? I did a little of that myself in early December but really need to finish my list. It has to be more than just a mental list. If you don’t write it down (or type it out), well…you know how that goes.

I find that gaining my balance post-holidays starts with establishing my morning routine for the year. Believe it or not, there was a time when I didn’t make my own coffee or my bed. I was a mess. I would throw all my sheets and pillows on top of my bed in a pile and just pick up my coffee...

Finish What You Start: How ‘Bout That For Your 2019 Resolution?

Here's a different approach to your 2019 New Year's resolutions... Let me begin by saying I’ve always been a runner. I blog about it a lot. But this blog post is about something different, and I’m just going to use running as an example.

Sometimes in life we say we’re going to do something and we begin going through the motions of completing the act but never quite get to the finish. I’m not blaming you here (even though I know you're guilty of it), I blame myself. It frustrates me that I set goals and flake out on myself. So in 2017, after running enough races to qualify for the 2018 New York Marathon, I decided that I wasn’t going to flake. I registered for the marathon. It was a done deal.

Did I want to run a marathon? Not particuar.ly I’ve run so many already. Also, I know what it does to your body, feet and most of all, your social schedule. When you have to wake up for a Saturday morning race that begins lining up at 7.15am, you’re SOL for grabbing...
