Lisa's Likes - Summer Read

Spring’s arrival is just a reminder that summer is coming!   This is the time of the year that I revel in living and working on the Westside in Los Angeles.  It really doesn’t get much better than stepping out of The Studio (MDR) after a sweat-drenching total body workout and feeling the warm sun on my skin along with the cool ocean breeze that is literally steps away. Beach days in Venice are the best, especially on the weekend.  Admittedly, I am attached to my Blackberry and MacBook, but there is something to be said about curling up on the sand with a good, old book.  And Teacher Appreciation Week reminded me of one of my favorite teachers, Ms.Simon, who encouraged me to read The Alchemist.  This classic is one of those books I read over and over again.  Paulo Coelho’s fable is powerful, thought provoking and inspiring– I truly believe EVERYONE should read it.  This book is bursting with optimism and reminds us that we really can do anything we want to do.

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

As Coelho eloquently puts it, "It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting" and I wake up every morning with such a feeling of gratitude that my dream came true when The Studio (MDR) opened its doors.

So, fellow bookworms, what are you reading right now?

Lisa's Likes: Must Haves For Beauty From Day To Night

As a businesswoman who is always on the go, I am all about products that are fabulous and functional.  One of my favorite items (that takes me from my days at The Studio (MDR) to a night out in Venice) is Murad’s Energizing Pomegranate Lip Protector.  I love it because it’s glossy but not sticky and---it smells yummy!

This gloss "shines above" the rest because the pomegranate extract boosts the SPF 15 protection.  The Jojoba Ester and Shea Butter intensely hydrate my lips to keep them from drying out while restoring them with powerful antioxidants.  It also contains Salicylic Acid, which retexturizes my lips to make them soft and supple.

I am not alone in my love for this lip protector, it's been featured as the favorite gloss in magazines such as InStyle, Lucky, and People!

So that's it, my secret is out. A little mascara and Murad at 5am and I’m good to go to the studio!

What's your favorite beauty product for day and night? Comment below and let Lisa Hirsch know.

Lisa's Likes: Must Haves For Hair

It's been just over a year since I opened the doors to my baby, the fabulous little boutique fitness studio - The Studio (MDR).  While I knew entrepreneurship would be an exhilarating challenge (and far from what I was used to in the music/entertainment industry), you could say I also didn't know what I'd be in for. I truly love what I do and why I do it--to help my clients be happier and healthier. But I am constantly busy - even when I sleep; whether it's emails at 5:00 am, meetings for my studio expansion or excitedly connecting with new faces and names...I dream of The Studio (MDR) transforming people's bodies and putting smiles on their faces and guess what - it's happening! As a multitasking business owner, my clients and friends are always asking me what my daily must-haves are that help me maintain my high energy and keep me looking good.

One of my favorites is Moroccan Oil haircare. The earthy, exotic scent takes me away to a Moroccan bazaar while keeping my hair shiny and preventing those annoying fly aways that get in your eyes when working out.

I never really think of myself as a "product girl" but I guess I kinda em'! I'll share more of my must-haves in the weeks to come.
