CALIA by Carrie Underwood Coming Next Spring!

There’s no turning down the lights on Carrie Underwood’s bright stardom because she just beat Beyonce to the punch of launching her own fitness line. The trend in activewear these days seems to be famous musicians starting their own fit collection. Makes perfect sense to me! I can only imagine how much these super stars have to workout to look so incredible, and a true diva likes to do things her own way. On Wednesday, December 10th 2014 in New York City, I listened to Carrie Underwood talk about what inspired her to launch her CALIA by Carrie Underwood collection with DICK’S Sporting Goods where it will be exclusively available for purchase starting March 2015.  She had needs—just like all women do—and she felt like many brands of fitness clothing weren’t being designed with the feminine fit and accents that women want to see when they look in the mirror. The collection is soft, feminine and versatile. The boldest print is a dark wild...

Fit 'n Fancy Holiday Gifts + GIVEAWAY!

Are you last minute holiday shopping? Here's my go-to gift list if you're looking to win the best gifter award. The first 6 are larger presents that require wrapping, the last 6 are stocking stuffers that pack a big bite for being so small. I'm giving away 3 of the stocking stuffers so make sure to enter the GIVEAWAY at the end. Harley Pasternak's Power Blender + 5 Pounds Book - A gift for him or her (blender $250 / book $19) Harley Pasternak is Hollywood's exercises & nutrition guru who has become a huge celebrity himself. His blender and latest book came out of his own need to slim down for TV and press appearances. The blender and book duo make a nice gift for someone on a mission to lose weight in the healthiest way in 2015. What I love about this blender is that it's pretty close to a Vitamix for half the price. It blends, crushes, emulsifies, chops, purées, liquifies whole fruits and veggies, ice, frozen fruit & nuts. It also prepares hot foods,...

Recap of My Life, 2014 Year End

So this is a recap on the last 2 months of my life. I figured why not turn the lens around and show you what's going on in my life. I enjoy narrating through pictures so here goes... 1. I launched an incredible Mizzfit sock line with Pointe Studio because I love barre fitness like a crackhead. The response has been amazing and no one has thrown their sweaty socks at me yet. They're grippy on the bottom so if you don't do barre, you can also just wear them at home instead of scratching up your nice wood floors with heels. They make great stocking stuffers too. 2. I spoke at iHeart Radio's Lifestyle Health & Wellness Expo in Brooklyn, NY. I'll be at the next one in Harlem, too, on January 29th of 2015. I was honored to speak alongside someone I quite admire: Miss Jenna Wolfe (health & fitness correspondent of the Today Show). I convinced her to meet with me and give me career advice so I will keep you filled in on how that goes. My advice to you...

Work Out With Me At Exceed NYC FREE!

I've teamed up with Exceed Physical Culture to offer a FREE WORKOUT at their newest studio in Tribeca, NYC. The reason I'm doing this is because after doing 2 workouts at Exceed earlier this year, I was like "this is so hard, I can't come back by myself...I need my fit crew!" So I'm calling all of you out of the woodwork to come help me sweat before Christmas and the New Year. I miss my New Balance Girls' Night Out events so much and it's hard not to see all of your amazing faces and physiques every month. So this is a way for us to get together yet again in NYC and to experience one of my new favorite high intensity interval training studios in a quaint part of Manhattan. There will be gift bags, water and towels for you so just bring your game face and stylish activewear. I'm also proposing we grab a bite to eat afterwards (if you have time) somewhere in the neighborhood that's fast/healthy. I will have that info for you closer to the day of the event. This is a...

When I'm Not Wearing Workout Clothes...

When I'm not wearing workout clothes I like to DRESS UP! But I operate on a consistenly busy schedule and time is of the essence, so unlike meticulous fashion bloggers I don't have much time to put together elaborate outfits (even though I salivate over them). For me, fitness fashion comes easy because it's my passion. I can throw a great fitness look together in no time. Like this one... For non-sweaty occasions though, it's a different story. I find myself standing in front of my closet for hours with my finger hanging out the side of my mouth. Duuuuuuh. What to wear??? Keep It Simple Stupid has become my strategy for success. I don't overly acccessorize or layer, and I like for everything to come off as easily as it went on. Is that weird? I like outfits that move as much as I like to move. Like bottoms that flow, poof out and blow in the wind. Pieces like this are flirty, feminine and playful, which is my style when I dress up. I nearly died when I found this...

How To Use A Lip Crayon, Even For Fitness!

During this past New York Fashion Week 2014, I was invited to Style Coalition's beautiful influencer event at their loft in the Meatpacking District (right around the corner from Mizzfit headquarters). The Influencer Lounge was lavishly set up for Style Coalition's bloggers and vloggers to primp, enjoy a cocktail and rest their sore feet in between fashion shows. I got a gel manicure, had some champagne and made a huge discovery! While getting a makeup touch-up, I was introduced to Burt's Bees new line of lip crayons. Umm, I had no idea Burt's had expanded their product line so much so I was excited to get the scoop and sample it! I must admit, lip crayons were a little foreign to me even though I already owned one (thanks to Michelle Phan's Ipsy Glam Bag). I just didn't know how to use it correctly. So, I let the makeup artist at Style Coalition do her thing (as I meticulously watched her so I could reproduce the effect later)...and now, of course, I'm...
