How I Started My Subscription Box Business

This blog post has been sitting in my blogging queue for a few months now and has even accidentally posted a few times, ooops! The truth is that I was so busy working on my current Quarterly Box #MIZ15, which ships out at the end of this week, that I kept putting off writing this. I started the blog post 3 months ago. Shame on me. Bad blogger, bad! The subscription box that I curate for Quarterly Co is inspired by my lifestyle and love for fitness. It is my passion project and a top priority for me. Until it's under wraps and finalized, sometimes I don't have a second to breathe. It's imperative that the finished product is just the way I imagined it (or way better) before it ships out to women across the world. With that said, I can comfortably share that curating a subscription mailing or what we call a "subbox" for short, is a lot of work. But it's also a whole lot of fun too! If you're juggling different jobs or a few operations within your business (like me), it...

My 2 Weeks in Maui

I went to Mau with Joe! AKA my instagram husband. I go to Hawaii every year in the spring and I make a point of going to a different island each year. I guess you could say I'm a tad obsessed but it's impossible not to be once you visit Hawaii for the first time (no matter which island you land on). You will fall in love with the island culture and aloha spirit, especially if you're stimulated by nature, beaches, water sports, the BEST food and super chill people.

Don't Want To Look Frozen? This Filler Is For You!

A lot of people are scared of getting dermal fillers in their face and I don't blame them. We've seen enough celebrities who look frozen with very little movement in their forehead and mouth areas. Additionally, I've had a lot of friends tell me they hated their results after dabbling in fillers. They felt like they looked "different" afterwards. There were certain things about the way they charicteristically moved their face that were now gone. While I have to say I've never experienced this problem myself, I can totally understand how this would be extremely frustrating. I talk for a living so it would bug me if mobility in my face was limited or not believable. But at the same time, I want to look great for my age so when I feel I need a little help or plumping, I turn to injectables. I heard whisperings about a new type of filler to combat the frozen face look. I was eager to learn about it and then in perfect timing I got invited to this event by Galderma! The...

Cellfina Banished My Dimples: Watch me get treated!

It takes guts to post your bare ass on the internet. The "before" picture is definitely where my vulnerability lies. My mission has always been to offer up the best advice I could possibly give and to provide my readers with honest feedback on everything I try. So here it is: my experience receiving the much talked about Cellfina treatment. Viewer discretion is advised as I do show parts of the actual procedure. Don't worry, nothing is bloody or disgusting, or anything like that! But, I know some people are sensitive when it comes to needles. I know I am! Watch the video below... Cellfina is intended for long-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thigh areas of women. I only had my butt treated because there was no dimpling on my thighs. I do have some wavy cellulite-ish lines on my back thighs but I'm hoping to get that treated with laser later on. A lot of people have asked me 1) how much Cellfina costs and 2) what kind of pain level is...

Spicy Avocado Tostada Recipe

I love avocados! Whether it’s the main dish, a side dish or just a topping, I’m ALL IN. I can’t say no to Avocados From Mexico’s Haas avocados. I grew up on them. My family is from Honduras, which is a hop-skip-step away from Mexico Lindo. We borrow a lot of cultural activities and cooking styles from Mexico that have become ingrained in my foodie palate, and which I’ll never kick! ** This campaign has received compensation from Collective Bias, Inc. and it's advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #VidaAguacate #EchaleLoMejor #CollectiveBias ** When I sat down to come up with a fast and easy recipe that’s mouth-watering, I knew I wanted it to include Avocados From Mexico because they’re so incredibly nutritious. Any health coach will tell you to indulge and eat them as part of a balanced diet, because avocados don’t require unhealthy additives to taste good.. The beauty of an avocado is you could literally eat it on its own and it tastes amazing! As long...

LED Light Therapy: Look Younger, Better!

We've all heard of LED Lights and seen them as part of Christmas decorations and blinking signage. But did you know LED lights, originally developed by NASA, are doing lots of good in the beauty and health worlds? I'm so excited to bring you this report because this technology offers a relatively inexpensive way to look younger and get fitter. My favorite items are the anti-aging wands and mask but seriously all of them are wonderful and work well. Check out the video below... LED Lights are essentially wavelengths of colored light energy and each color does something different. Some colors are more therapeutic than others. The research is fun to do and I had a blast testing many devices on myself but I have to be honest and say I wish I could've tested even more colors and gadgets. If you happen to know of ones I don't mention here, please let me know in the comments section.  The LED light products you'll read about here are all under $100 and exceptionally easy to...

How I Treated My Frown Lines!

Yup, you may have never noticed but I had frown lines, and you better believe I had them taken care of and continue to do so. I won’t play coy with you and pretend like I’m above it because my looks matter to me. I always want to look my best for my self-esteem and for all the Instagram pictures I take! Just kidding! It’s not something I do for social media although I like looking good for my followers...who doesn’t? It comes from a desire to look as youthful as I feel. I’ve always been an energetic, on-the-go type of person, even during my advertising days when I used to write and art direct TV commercials. That’s actually when my frown lines started to appear, around 29 years old. At the time, I was working very long hours. Sometimes until 4am! I was working for the best advertising agency in the world so there was no other option than giving 500%.  I was definitely stressed and my work hours were aging me. Staring into a computer screen designing...

Fast Recipes For A Healthier Morning

I was a guest of CocoaVia® brand at the 2017 Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards. I'm also a sponsored CocoaVia® brand influencer, but all opinions and advice you’re about to read are 100% my own.* I have two simple recipes to share with you in this post but let me back up a bit and give you some context on why they’re both health related. You have to read about my night at the Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards! It was a large gathering of amazing and energetic people who love health! Do a hashtag search for #REDDRESSAWARDS on Twitter and Instagram to see my posts from the night! Some of my favorite celebrities in the media were in attendance and also hosted. I was most excited for Hoda Kotb, who I once did a Today Show segment with, but still can’t bring myself to watch (let’s just say it was at the very beginning of my career and I was a novice). Tamron Hall, Joy Bauer and a bunch of other successful women in the news and within the health world were also...

Mizzfit at the Woman's Day Red Dress Awards

I attended the 2017 Woman’s Day Red Dress Awards to join the fight against heart disease as a guest of CocoaVia® brand. I'm a sponsored CocoaVia® brand influencer, but all opinions are my own*. What an event! I truly did not expect the evening to be as spectacular as it was—it completely blew me away! Upon entering the Jazz at Lincoln Center atrium right above Columbus Circle, I was enveloped in a soft red glow and a room full of happy people buzzing around. It was a fantastic sight, with wait staff lined up to hand you a drink. Everyone (with their phones in camera mode) was drawn to the gargantuan heart “centerpiece” pumping good vibes through the room. I grabbed a drink (red bubbly to match the event’s color theme) and sashayed around during the cocktail hour in my red dress, matching every single woman in attendance. Not only is it so much fun, but it’s truly an honor to attend events like this one. Empowering women to better health...

Running Safety: What Every Runner Should Know And Do

This topic is an important one, especially in light of the deaths of Karina Vetrano and Vanessa Marcotte, which both really affected me as an avid outdoor runner. Karina's death was just too close to home. Her body was found along a Howard Beach path she ran down often. And finally, just a few days ago, her murderer/rapist was caught and charged. Vanessa Marcotte's death, while it didn't happen in New York City proper (her body was found in Massachusetts where she was jogging while visting her mother), was still a major reality check for me because she worked at Google, a mere block away from where I used to live here in NYC. For months, every time I walked past the Google building, all I could think about was her untimely death. What a tragedy in both cases. These attacks from 2016 prove that we need to be a lot more cautious than ever. If you're a runner, be safe out there, but also keep an eye out for your fellow brother and sister runners too. We need to look out for each...
