Lisa Marie Latino and Aspiring Beauty Blogger Carissa Abraham

Lisa Marie Latino had 1010 WINS radio traffic reporter and aspiring beauty blogger Carissa Abraham in the #HipNJ studio to talk about her incredible radio career and newly realized love of everything skincare. Carissa dishes out the reality check everyone needs to hear about keeping skin healthy and maintaining a youthful glow!

Before Carissa began her passionate skincare journey, she first cultivated her successful radio career. She started out as a DJ during her undergrad years at Seton Hall where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Broadcasting. She went on to land a job with the iHeartMedia, Inc. subsidiary Total Traffic & Weather Network. Her connections here helped her land a job as a substitute traffic reporter and an eventual full-time spot at Z100, New York’s #1 Hit Music Station.

Carissa’s impressive professional career is just one aspect of her resume. She is using her personal love of skincare to start a beauty blog focusing on maintenance and makeup. Her passion began when she noticed her own skin in need of some TLC. She used home remedies and facial mask treatments at first but eventually sought the help of a licensed aesthetician.

After receiving microdermabrasion treatments, Carissa realized how important it is to devote funds to treating bad skin. “Your skin is an investment” she says, “and it’s probably the best investment I’ve ever made!”. Carissa endorses starting treatments early and using quality makeup, like vegan and cruelty-free brands, to maintain fresh results.

See Carissa demo her homemade hair mask made from shea butter and coconut oil. The mask will keep your hair healthy through the dry, unforgiving winter months. It’s so important that you keep your hair clean and toxin-free any time of the year!

New Jersey March Madness Teams

It’s March Madness time again, and #HipNJ is getting you zoned in on the action!

The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) tournament allows the 68 best men’s Division 1 college basketball teams to contend for a National Championship, and two of those representatives hail from the Garden State! Here’s the 4-1-1 on everything you need to know about Seton Hall University and Princeton University.

Seton Hall University

Seton Hall Pirates

Seton Hall Pirates

This year marks the 11th NCAA tournament appearance for the Seton Hall Pirates.

Last year the Pirates were upset in the first round by the Gonzaga Bulldogs. This year, the ninth seeded Pirates are looking to make an upset of their own against the number eight seeded Arkansas Razorbacks. The Pirates were three points short of upsetting the number one overall seeded Villanova Wildcats in the Big East Conference finals.

The Pirates are led by their 6-10, 240 pound forward Angel Delgado. This is Delgado’s third season with the Pirates. Delgado currently is the nation’s best rebounder, averaging 13.1 rebounds per game.

Seton Hall’s best tournament run was in 1989, where they made it all the way to the national championship game. Their overall tournament record is 15 wins and 10 losses.

Princeton University

Princeton Tigers

Princeton Tigers

The Princeton Tigers are no stranger to the NCAA tournament, with this year marking their 25th appearance in the tournament.

This is the Tigers’ first appearance in March Madness since 2011. This year’s Tigers went undefeated within the Ivy League Conference, posting a 14-0 record against conference opponents. The Tigers finished the regular season with 23-6 overall record, making them a 12th seed in this year’s tournament. The Tigers will be looking to upset the fifth seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

The Tigers are currently on a 19 game win streak, including a conference championship. The Tigers have been one of the superior defensive teams all season; they are currently ranked 10th in fewest points allowed per game. The Tigers will have a tough matchup against the more experienced Fighting Irish, but have a good opportunity to cause an upset.

Princeton was able to make it to the Final Four in 1965. Their overall tournament record is 13 wins and 28 losses.

Here’s hoping for a Garden State championship! Follow our bracket and make one of your own  here.
