Although I have a lot to write about concerning fashion in fitness, I wanted to write something different. I could have written about my shirt that I wore to class with my face on it (my friends made it for me, give me a break!) or the way my sneakers smell like the basement of Hampshire DC, but God came down on me during Rosh Hashana and said, “Eliza, I bless your new year with Mizz Fit.” And I said, “God, Amen.”
Mizz Fit, which is, “your guide to radiant style and a strong life,” has given me SO MUCH to write about! Halle-fricken-lujah. I read and read and read and with each article and photo I thought, wow this is unreal. MizzFit.com is not just a blog, but has a philosophy, fashion tips, and a killer leader of it all. The fitness philosophy for Mizz Fit is “Style Up 2 Shape Up.” This method includes using your inner fashionista to keep you motivated and excited about working out. On a serious note, this philosophy is incredibly valid and I unconsciously live by it every day. With each shirt I cut up or new sports bra I buy, I constantly search for style within it. I even wrote an article about this people! Refer back to the NAPPYTABS article where I talk about, “if you look good, you feel good”. This site is real stuff for real people looking for great fashion guidance in the fitness word.
I then decided to be big and bad and e-mail whoever Mizz Fit may be. I basically confessed my love and thought that maybe one day, just one day, they would respond…such a hopeless romantic. Within a day, Bianca, the Founder and Editor of Mizz Fit, contacted me and this was not some automatic e-mail system. She was so sweet and kind enough to respond. We even chit chatted on the phone and she gave me wonderful inspirational advice. When it was the day to call her, my hairdresser just put foils in my hair and they stayed in until the phone call was done because I was NOT missing it…lets just say, my hair almost fell out because Bianca and I talked for about an hour! As I listened to her tell me she studied at Cornell I thought…oh so she is stupid. Duh. And then I went back and browsed pictures of her and saw that luscious brown hair, beautiful smile, and killer body she has and thought…wow dumb and ugly, rough life. HA, as if… since her work is pure and handled with love, Bianca is in fact living proof of what she preaches; she is educated, intelligent, beautiful, and inspiring.
I think what drew me toward MizzFit.com was the goal and mission of the website. Fashion in fitness is what I write about (primarily) for this blog and Mizz Fit is just that, but to another level. Mizz Fit has been featured on The Today Show, Her Campus, U.S. Weekly, she is working on a fitness-based reality show, and you can even watch Bianca style Kat Deluna. I encourage all of you to check out MizzFit.com because this is a site relatable to everyone that gives valuable and fun information!
