My passion and love for fashion and all things femme
started at a very young age. Of course young girls always have
someone to look up to growing up and for me (as silly as it may
sound) it was my grandmother! I’m telling you this woman was
the ultimate fashionista. So much in fact that I still have on at
least one piece of hers on everytime I leave the house. You’ll
come to notice that I have an endless passion for all things
vintage and now you’ll understand why!
My fashion sense and style was also heavily influenced
by the years of modeling I did in my teens growing up. I
frequented NYC and also travelled to Japan to pursue a career
in the industry. Although I eventually chose academia over
the glamour of the modeling industry the fashion tips and
advice that I took away from that industry are invaluable.
That brings me to where I am today! A recent graduate
of The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA, I
am currently working on my swimwear line “Lela Pearce” and
writing for my personal blog Blonde and Hound as well as
contributing as Fashion Editor for Viva Glam Magazine! I am
very excited and honored to be sharing my personal fashion
advice, tips, and picks with you through Viva Glam Magazine.
In the words of the infamous Coco Chanel, “Fashion fades,
only style remains the same”. I hope Viva Glam Magazine can
help encourage new looks and ideas for your personal style!
Beauty has always been a passion on mine, but it was not until recently, that this passion became a talent that I never knew I had. As a former teacher with a Masters degree in Education, I have always found teaching people to be one of the most rewarding things in life. I decided to utilize my two skills and passions of beauty and teaching, and started a YouTube channel, creating hair and make up tutorials, fashion and product hauls/reviews, and have built up quite a substantial following. As I continued to make progress with my YouTube channel, marketing and networking techniques, my mentor and good friend, Katarina, asked me to join Viva Glam as Head Beauty Editor. I feel honored to be part of such an amazing team of people, and look forward to sharing my love for beauty with the world.
Hi! I’m Marzia Prince AKA the Fit Chic. I have been building beautiful bodies for the past 10 years. My specialty is training women who model, pageant contestants, and bikini fitness competitors. I was a bikini fitness competitor myself for 4 years earning many titles. One of my proudest moments in my competing history was winning the 2007 Ms Bikini Universe title at 32 years old. It was my first competition against 122 beautiful women from all over the world. This moment told me age was really just a number and I could be fit at any age. Not only am I a certified fitness and nutrition expert, I am currently a professional fitness model myself and I have had the honor of gracing many fitness and bodybuilding magazines that include Fitness, Natural Muscle, Iron Man, Muscular Development, and many more. Through my many years of expertise, I have become a published writer to help educate women on all things health and fitness.

I've always had a huge passion for fashion and glamour, but sometimes felt both could cross an invisible line and become too "cheesy". I wanted to combine the two and create a GUIDE for women who want to become glamourous, smart and classy with a very feminine style. Working in Hollywood for a decade helped me understand what women,and men, find beautiful and attractive. More importantly it helped me gain perspective that everyone can be beautiful and attractive, regardless of what you look like. Ah the magic of Hollywood!
Yet, being a model and a beauty specialist were only two avenues of my expertise. With an exceptionally well developed three dimensional vision and a degree in Business, Marketing and Graphic Design, I was on my way to create the world I wanted to live in. Viva Glam Magazine is on a rise to become the one and only guide every woman will ever need. "Stay Beautiful!"

Hi! My name is Catherine Denise, at the risk of sounding a bit cheesy I am going to share a little of my obsession with you…
My love affair with food began as a very young child; my oldest and fondest memories consistently include food, family, and friends. As always, I credit my food obsession to growing up in the Philippines, my huge Nebraska family, but mostly the many influences from my beautiful, Filipino mother.
Around fifth grade my father was stationed to Las Vegas and there I was exposed to an entirely new cuisine, where my obsession with restaurants began. I have been known to spend every last dime I had on a meal and wholeheartedly believe that is how everyone should live!
I love all types of food, mostly healthy, but with a dash – or more – of the bad! No one can live without a little bad!
Food, to me, is comfort. It’s something that can bring a smile to your face and make your heart feel good. It’s something you share with a neighbor or gift to a new friend. It’s something you make for someone when you can’t find the words to say “I’m sorry” or “I am so in love with you.” Food is something that can heal a broken heart or help you celebrate success! It’s the one thing in this world that binds us all together and that we cannot live without.
To fuel my food obsession I own Last Minute Accessories, so be sure to visit www.lastminuteaccessories.com and keep me fed!
You might have seen me as the face of Stila, Clear Essence, Nars, Herbalife, Youthful Luster Skincare and Classified Cosmetics. I was a model with the Wilhelmina Agency in Los Angeles for several years. I’ve also been an actor for over a decade and learned a lot about beauty, skincare and fashion in the process. I've worked with everyone from "hairstylist to the stars" Chris McMillan to makeup legend Paul Starr. I’m asked by women, “Excuse me, what lotion do you use?” “What do you use on your hair? I’ve been stopped on elevators, in the mall, restaurants, you name it. And I’ve received emails from as far away as Japan and South America from complete strangers asking me about beauty tips. I’m not saying this to toot my own horn, but to illustrate the fact women ask me about skincare, makeup and fashion. A lot. I believe in every woman's ability to be beautiful. And what I’ve learned, I’d love to share with you.
