How did you get into modeling and can you share both a good and a bad experience from modeling? (Mirielys Perez) I am most passionate about helping others.

From Waking up to going to bed, Can you give us a play by play of a typical day for you? (Mirielys Perez) A typical day for me would be: Up by 6am with the baby, feed him spend time with him, by 7am I am eating a healthy breakfast and checking emails (while the baby plays in the bouncer) getting ready, 7:45 getting my gym bag and the baby bag ready. Out of the house to drop off baby and be at the gym by 10am - Be out of the gym by 11am. Home, Shower, work on whatever I may have going on that day.

Especially when people see a photo and assume what they want. Does that bother you that people may think less of someone because of the clothes they have on? Do you think women should be mindful of the image that they are portraying? (Mirielys Perez) I think that yes, I think women should be mindful of their image, but also know that they don’t have to spend more to look good. You can’t even tell what type of clothes someone has on sometimes. I think its less about brands and more how you fit in clothes, I mean I found a sale where dresses where for $5.99 each and I got a whole bunch and everyone has complimented them in my photo shoot and have no idea I spent $40 something on Five dresses. It’s also how you wear it and how confident you are in it! (SISS) What is your favorite Food? What is your favorite book? When do you feel the sexiest? What was the craziest or riskiest thing that you ever did in your life? (Mirielys Perez) I love Sushi, but I don’t have it as often as id like because of my goals to get back into my pre baby body, My favorite book has got to be the 48 Laws of Power and The Host, I feel the sexiest right after I shave my legs (I know its weird), The craziest thing I have done in my life is probably got my tongue pierced the same day I sky dived when I was 19. (SISS) Who in this world right now is a definition of greatness and why? (Mirielys Perez) Right now I think there are so many great people trying to do right by our communities and our world that I can’t just choose one. (SISS) How much is fitness important to you and your career? How many times per week do you workout? Can you tell us more about foreverfearlessmag.com ? (Mirielys Perez) Visuapex sounds like a great service, how is this going for you? Fitness is definitely a priority in my life it keeps me sane and goal oriented. If it wasn’t for fitness I don’t know where I would be today. I workout 5-6 times a week depending on how busy my schedule is. Foreverfearlessmag is a beauty and fashion blog that I created so long ago that I am now starting to revisit as a hobby and potential money maker. Visuapex is my main “bad” its how I put food on the table, my bread and butte its what I love to do which is to create which in turn helps me with all my other businesses and ideas!
