I met Theresa Longo in the L’Oreal TIFF lounge (my TIFF post). Not only was she super-friendly and sweet, she’s a beauty queen/model/actress AND fitness expert! As I’m perpetually nosy about other people’s beauty secrets and fashion loves – I asked Theresa if I could feature her in my first “5 Pretty Things” post – hope you enjoy reading her answers!

1) What face wash and moisturizer do you use?
I use Proactiv 3 step Face Wash … and I use Vivier Skin C&E Peptides for Moisturizer
2) What foundation, concealer, blush & mascara do you use?
I use L’Oreal True Match Sand Beige Foundation, YSL Touche Eclat Concealer, – I skip Blush and use Benefit “They’re Real” Mascara or L’Oreal’s Voluminous Power Collagen Mascara
3) What is your favorite bag? Either one you own or a wishlist one – would love to see a pic.
My Favorite Bag is an Italian Made Leather “Bagghy” Bag … It is big enough to travel with and the pattern is completely unique! Attached is a photo of the bag.
4) What do you do to stay healthy? How often do you work out/Any special diet you follow?
I work out often. Every couple days I target different muscle groups. I switch it up between arms, abs, and legs. I have an excellent boxing coach who I work with on a consistent basis. I began boxing at BEL Boxing and have kept it up over the last few years. I practice a vegan diet. I take a ton of supplements, including Vega All in One Nutritional Shake every morning at breakfast. I take multiple vitamins daily and I never drink alcohol or refined sugar. To stay lean I avoid eating bread at all costs. You can check out work out tips on my blog 😉
5) Share something interesting about your ancestry/heritage…Can you tell I’m a huge “Who Do You Think You Are” fan?
I have an Italian background with my Dad’s side of the family originating from Sicily. I was crowned Miss Italy North America in 2011-12, and I learned to speak conversational Italian before departing for Italy to compete for the crown in the World Finals of Miss Italy of the world. It was an incredible experience I will never forget. It was an honor for me to learn more about my heritage while representing North America on the world stage.
I love how unique Theresa’s favorite bag is! And her workout & diet routine is so inspirational and impressive…if only I could cut out refined sugar completely from my diet!!! Thanks for answering my questions Theresa 🙂
