About Fashion:

I love fashion in all its glorious forms and expressions – The clothes, fabrics, colors, shopping, magazines, models, accessories, bags & luggage, glossy advertisements, runway shows… To quote the fabulous Mr. Ford:

Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time, and that’s what excites me.”

About Food:

I love to eat and I love food. Sometimes I cook, sometimes I eat out, and sometimes I consume nothing but chips for days at a time.

True story.

I dislike titles when it comes to eating habits as they inherently place limitations on what you can or should consume. I believe that you need to feed your desires and give in to your cravings, at least a little, to truly enjoy yourself.

Who can be glowing and happy if they’re hangry?

About Fitness:

Determining your ideal fitness regime is an exercise – Pun intended – In trial and error. As a former athlete with injuries in my past it has been an arduous journey to discover what works best for me.

Using a trainer is often a useful tool, especially for beginners, and trying interesting and fun new workouts like kickboxing, martial arts, SCUBA diving, yoga, CrossFit, cycling, or jogging can help you decide what works best for you.

I’m a bit of a dabbler when it comes to fitness, and love trying new things, but these days my weekly routine includes circuit training, walking, yoga, Pilates & running.

About MCLV:

My goal each morning is to live my life with passion and joy, and to fill my days with the things that I love. When you sit at a desk or in a classroom for hours a day it’s easy to fall into a rut – You’re exhausted, stressed, and effort becomes a truly foreign concept.

MCLV was created to not only motivate me to continue doing the things that interest, stimulate, and exhilarate me, but to share them with you and inspire you to do the same.

Team MCLV:

The MCLV team is composed of writer Caity, hair & make-up artist Klaudia {Klaudia Mayer – MakeUp & Photography} and photographer Jennymay {J.Villarete Photography}.
