In my opinion, it makes sense to go sporty in the Fall and Winter months because it’s so darn cold outside and just easier to get around when you’re not dealing with the hassle of heels. Lately, I’ve been sporting 4 looks inspired by a few key pieces that I got from adidas. Sometimes adding just a few things to your wardrobe can really spruce up what you’ve already got.
There have been more scorching hot days this Summer of 2019 than I can count! And I believe I read in the news that this past May and July had some of the hottest days in history. That's why I had to do THIS BEAUTY REPORT on WGN TV Chicago Midday News.
I say it in the video below, which I hope you'll watch [ JUST CLICK IT ] but I'll say it again here: WHERE THERE'S A WILL FOR BEAUTY THERE'S ALWAYS A WAY! These are my tips for the worst beauty blunders of summer.
Problem #1: Your hair is prone to frizz.
Listen, I feel you on this one because I've spent a lifetime coping. My best solution, and it's one that works really well, is GKHair's THE BEST TREATMENT. It smoothes, hydrates and conditions your hair for the entire summer, making it frizz-free and easy to style. I get this treatment done at my salon in New York City called Gemini 14 Salon (ask for Christian Sanchez) and I won't lie, it's expensive: $400!!! But it's worth it to me in every way as...
These are my Ocean-safe Sunscreen Tips + info on the adidas Oceans Run in NYC.
Look at me! All decked out for summer fitness and spending oodles of time in the sun! The funny part about that last sentence is that I’m terrified of the sun even though I love how good it can feel on the skin. I leanred in my late 20’s and early 30’s that the sun can destroy your skin, and how easily one can contract skin cancer. So I don’t play that game anymore of going out in the sun without any sunscreen. Nope! The big news, when it comes to sunscreens, is that the FDA is reevaluating the safety of every single chemical sunscreen agent until November of 2019.
Already, many sunscreen brands and products using chemical ingredients have started to change their labels or discontinue certain lines. While many changes are still happening and we won’t get the FDA’s final results until November, what we do know is that MINERAL SUNSCREENS have been found to be the safest for both human...
As a #CafeBusteloPartner I’m thrilled announce that Café Bustelo has launched its El Café del Futuro Scholarship once again in partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU).
If you’re a college-bound student or graduate student of Latino descent please KEEP READING because this year Café Bustelo is giving away a total of $100,000 in scholarship funds to 20 deserving Latino students. That could be YOU!
Watch my 1-minute video below to hear what it’s all about!
All twenty students selected will receive $5,000 each to go towards their college or graduate school tuition and educational expenses. To enter, you must meet the requirements of the scholarship (which I will link to below) and write a compelling essay about your Latino heritage, family and the community in which you grew up.
How have they impacted your desire and motivation to obtain a college degree? Additionally, you’ll need to thoughtfully describe what you...
What a cool day, right? It’s OUR day but also a day to celebrate all the historic achievements of the women before our time. If someone were to ask me who I’d be celebrating today it would be Harriet Tubman, Frida Kahlo and Maya Angelou. All 3 women are icons who inspire me and whose life stories make me want to be a legend myself.
When I started Mizzfit.com over 10 years ago, my mission was to help motivate women to exercise and find a way to balance an active lifestyle with everything else they were doing. It started as a mere idea and became my passion, my mission and ultimately my career! A lot has evolved since the creation of this blog and expanded beyond this catchy url, but what has remained strong is my desire to LIFT WOMEN UP.
I hope the image that you see above make sense now :) I'm holding one of my best friends, Michelle Thomas, who I've known for years and actually met in a tabata fitness class. Michelle is like a sister to me. She’s someone I really...
Are you surprised that I've gone and tried yet another controversial skincare treatment? Don't be. This is what I do...
It's called the "Vampire Facial" because some skincare practioners go to the extreme of making your face all bloody, but it really doesn't have to be that way and I'm glad mine was NOT. The real name for this rejuvenating facial treatment is Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy with Microneedling. I went to Youth Corridor for it, and sat down with Dr. Gerald Imber before and after my treatment to understand it better.
WATCH MY VIDEO BELOW TO SEE!
I will admit that my initial interest stemmed from watching Kim Kardashian receive it. She has the most beautiful skin and the best access to skincare trends, so how could I not be intrigued by it? As you can see from my video above, the Vampire Facial I got was very different than hers. It was a lot less dramatic. Still slightly painful but nothing I couldn't handle.
