Someone please phone Floyd Mayweather, I am coming for his spot! I am totally kidding but guess what everyone. . . I officially started boxing this past Saturday and let me tell you, I am beyond excited.
Let me introduce my wonderful trainer Joshua ” Iron Boy ” Gonzalez. He has been boxing pretty much his entire life and is going pro soon, so you know I am honored to be learning from him. It was only our first day of training and he told me I was a faster learner (which of course made me happy). He trains me at up in the boogie down Bronx at the Willis Avenue Boxing Gym. They host a bunch of boxing events and its honestly an awesome place. If you want to get into boxing and you’re from NYC, I strongly encourage you to sign up at this gym.
Why did I choose pink gloves and hand wraps you ask? With every purchase of pink gloves/hand wraps Everlast donates money to breast cancer research. Green is my favorite color but trust me it wasn’t a hard choice.
If I do something, I put my all into it. I do not plan on fighting in the ring but you never know, plans can change. For now I will just be doing boxing training. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it. I cannot wait to show you guys my new skills.

I’m happy to let my readers know that I have officially done my first commercial. The commercial was for a lovely spa located in lower Manhattan called La Casa Day Spa. I go to La Casa Day Spa for colonics and the owner thought it would be a good idea for me to let everyone know how I feel about this great place.
If you don’t know who, what, where, when about this spa, I suggest you head to the website here. Trust me, you would love the calming atmosphere and the lovely staff. There are some spas that don’t really teach about health and wellness and focus more on just taking your money but La Casa Day Spa is not like that at all. Since I have been going there I have learned so many new things that are helping me on my journey to becoming the healthiest me I can be. Even the wonderful woman who performs the colonic therapy on me, Cher, is a two time cancer survivor. I thought that was just amazing!
Like I said before, I go specifically for colonics. . . However there are many other options to choose from. For those of you who do not know what a colonic is, you can read about it on their website here. Colonics have definitely helped my body and especially my flat stomach. I suggest you all go to La Casa Spa and cleanse your bodies.
Posing for pictures on my New York rooftop brings me great joy. . . But do you know what else does? Fitness and Fashion. So far most of you know the fitness side of me but not too many people know how I feel about fashion, clothing etc.
First off. . .
I dress however I want. There may be some trends I throw into an outfit here and there but there is no one out there who dresses just like me. My clothes make me feel better. When I look nice, I feel nice. Working with different brands from many different parts of the world has really helped me expand my style. That’s why I try to tag all the brands I wear so maybe other people can get some inspiration too. For example, in the pictures above, my crop tank and visor are from SyberGurl.
I’m no fashion icon nor do I stay on top of what celebrities wear. . . But that’s probably because half of the time I’m in some nike fitness gear handling business.
I don’t always keep up with celeb fashion but when I do , my two favorite people to look to are Angela Simmons & Rihanna ( when she is fully clothed ).
