“Coming from a half Puerto Rican,& Italian background her childhood was filled with culture, vibrancy, and a deeply ingrained passion for food......

W

thanks to the coaxing of a late night infomercial.

With a half Puerto Rican, half Italian background, Almodovar’s childhood was filled with culture, vibrancy and a deeply ingrained passion for food that began in Staten Island, New York. By age three, Almodovar was kneading and molding meatballs alongside her grandmother for family meals. At age16, she landed her first restaurant job at Gustaro’s Ale House in Atlanta, Georgia.

Throughout her career, Almodovar has methodically mastered every position in the kitchen. Her culinary experience ranges from working as a line cook at Big Bear’s Brewing Company in Coral Springs, Florida to executive chef at Jeff ’s Beach House in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In 2011, with enough courage and tenacity to strike out on her own, Almodovar purchased a 24’ food truck and founded “Palate Party”, a fresh, mobile food café that utilizes locally sourced ingredients. Palate Party was the first female-owned, non-dessert food truck in South Florida and it’s the only truck with a custom stage built on top for live entertainment, dancing and musical performances.

In 2008 Almodovar took to the high seas and managed the kitchen of a 172’ yacht, Lady Windridge. Realizing that she missed the “heat” in the kitchen, Almodovar parted ways with the yacht charter in 2009 so that she could pursue new endeavors. She

Almodovar and her wife Faiza LaRiviere, whom she married on 11-11-11, manage the restaurant on wheels which splits it’s time between catering gigs and dominating the local food truck circle scene. Catch them weekly at Arts Park at Young Circle in Hollywood or online at www.palateparty.com.

Since then, Almodovar’s path to the kitchen has made many twists and turns. The beauty school drop-out pursued nursing and cosmetology before officially coasting into cuisine professionally

18

worked at several respectable South Florida restaurants including The Forge and Danny Devito's Devito South Beach before obtaining an Executive Sous Chef position at the Royal Palm Hotel.

Whether she is catering for celebrities such as mega producer Timbaland, actor John Corbett, Gym Class Heroes Travie McCoy and DJ Irie or hosting viewing parties of her own shot to stardom on FOX’s Hell’s Kitchen, Robyn Almodovar is out to ensure there is a party in the mouth every time.

In 2005, she graduated from the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta and relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to begin her apprenticeship as banquet cook at The Hyatt Regency Pier 66, a Four Diamond Hotel.

There are many different collections of Scentsy warmers to accommodate an taste or décor. The Art Deco collection is modern with art deco-era designs and high gloss reactive glaze finishes. The Imperial Collection is reminiscent of royal coats of arms with its raised medallions and scalloped design. The Cascade Collection blends with a more nature or organic design. The Classic Collection is very simple with its soft square shape and matte finish. This collection would go with any décor. The Miracle Collection is a modern version of the cross and has been very popular.

Scentsy Favorite - Best-selling fragrances can be found in the Scentsy Favorites Collection. 1.

Fabulous Lifestyle Your daily destination for fashion has arrived in Cooper City, Fl. After 6 years of owning the successful Splurge Clothier women's store in Pembroke Pines there was a personal need to sell it in January 2008. After 4 years of not working and regretting the sale of her store everyday, Cheri Villegas decided to open Fabulous Lifestyle Clothier + Home in March 2012. Cheri attends apparel shows in New York, Vegas, California, and Miami throughout the year to bring her customers beautiful merchandise that you wont see everywhere else. Small quantities are brought in of each piece to move merchandise faster. “With the economy change I have learned the hard way that there is a need to change to items with a lower price point without sacrificing quality. I want my customers to feel comfortable and look amazing in whatever they choose to buy. Everyday pieces are a priority when I am attending a apparel show, The target customer is in her 20's - 50's and I wouldn't sell them anything I wouldn't wear myself ” says Cheri. Denim lines such as Citizens of Humanity, Black Orchid, Siwy, & Ravin are a staple at the store. Novelty t shirts from Wildfox and Rebell Yell are a must. Loungewear such as Peace Love World is a favorite be-

cause of the pure comfort. Mystique Sandals are a Italian leather sandal adorned with Swarovski crystals and no one buys just one pair. Dayna Decker is our candle and body line that flys out the door and its a perfect gift. Our Jewelry is hand picked from New York, and California. “There are alot of new emerging designers from Miami that I can't wait to bring in for Spring 2013.”, Cheri says. Candy Woolley handbags and accessories are my favorite. Candy personally designs her one of a kind handbags out of leather and amazing skins such as python, ostrich, & alligator. Candy's designs have been carried on the red carpet by celebs such as Kourtney Kardashian, Daisy Fuentes, and Whitney Port. Stop by and enjoy markdowns up to 50% off.

IN THE YOUNG ATHLETE Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) ruptures remain one of the most devastating injuries to the young competitive athlete. The ACL is the major supporting ligament within the knee joint providing stability to the knee during running, cutting and twisting sports. Though a traumatic collision with another athlete can cause a rupture to the ACL, a sudden alteration in speed and/or change in direction can also predispose an athlete to this injury. The athlete will often describe a loud popping sensation within the knee joint and experience severe pain, swelling and weakness combined with an inability to ambulate. Diagnosis is usually made by obtaining a proper history of injury and by performing a thorough clinical examination of the involved knee. X-rays and MRIs are extremely beneficial during this evaluation and will often help rule-out concomitant injuries to the adjacent ligaments, menisci and/or cartilage. The goal of treatment is to return the athlete back to his or her prior level of activity, including competitive sports. Rarely, One

may consider conservative/non-operative treatment for those patients that are extremely sedentary and inactive in athletics. In this incidence, treatment may include rehabilitation, bracing and restriction to certain activities.

For those individuals who are competitive athletes and participate in high-demand twisting sports, surgical ACL reconstruction is the treatment of choice. Over the last several years, I have seen numerous patients with surgical failures from prior ACL reconstructions that have been referred to my oďŹƒce for further consultation and revision surgery. Having performed over 1,700 Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstructions and over 200 revision surgical procedures, I remain convinced that this procedure is extremely technical and should be treated with stateof-the-art surgical technique and attention to detail. Though re-injury may be a common cause of failure subsequent to ACL reconstruction, technique related failures are

commonly seen and can often occur from improper graft selection, tunnel placement, graft tensioning, or methods of fixation. Timing of surgery and proper postoperative instructions, including return to athletics, also play a significant role in prevention of re-injury. In concordance with the literature barring any anatomical or growth related considerations, I prefer to utilize bone-patella tendon-bone autograft for the young, high-demand athlete. Treatment of an Anterior Cruciate Ligament rupture continues to be a challenging problem for the high school, collegiate and community athletes. It is imperative that young individuals (and parents) understand the importance of pursuing treatment by an experienced surgeon, preferably with a subspecialty interest in knee ligament reconstruction. Failure to do so may predispose an athlete to additional surgery and prevent return to sports in a timely manner.

WILL, THERE’S A WAY! Creating an effective Estate Plan is of the most important and responsible actions you can take during their lifetime. A Will allows you to make decisions on how you want to provide for your spouse, children, family members, charitable organizations or even for your pets, after your death. With the proper estate plan in place, your wishes are known and you can have the confidence of your wishes will be carried through during a time of deep grief and sorrow for your family. It can also ease the emotional and financial burden that may be otherwise on your loved ones during difficult times. Although everyone’s situation may be different, many effective estate plans can be achieved by implementing three actions.

Creating a Will A Will is the important first step in creating a solid Estate Plan. A Will is a legal document in which you are able to specify how you would like your assets to be distributed (including both Real Property and Personal Property) after you are gone. Upon your death, it is filed in the Probate Court in the county in which you resided and the Court then supervises the distribution of your assets. If you die without a Will (in44

FLAIR MAGAZINE

testate), the State of Florida will determine how your assets get divided and a Judge will decide who will handle the administration of your estate. There is a common misconception that Wills are just for older people! On the contrary, if you have young children, you need to have a Will in place to designate the guardian of your choice to care for them in the event of your demise, if the other parent is also not available. If you don’t appoint someone, the Court will! Isn’t that a choice YOU should make?

A Living Will A Living Will is a legal document that a person uses to make known his or her wishes regarding life prolonging medical treatments. If your doctors determined that you have a terminal end stage condition and/ or are in a persistent vegetative state and there is no reasonable medical probability of your recovery from that state, how would you be taken care of ? Would you like to be maintained alive artificially? Or, would you like to die naturally? Shouldn’t that be YOUR choice?Remember the Terri Schaivo case? It was a bitter legal battle that lasted for 7 years. Terri was diagnosed by her doctors as being in a persistent vegetative state.

At issue was whether Terri’s husband had the right to terminate life support for his wife, against the wishes of her parents. Shouldn’t your loved ones be protected from making such a heart-wrenching decision, which may even place loved ones at odds with one another? A Living Will allows you to make those choices before you are unable to!

Designation of Surrogate A Designation of Health Care Surrogate allows you to choose someone to make important health care decisions for you, in the event that you are unable to. A health care surrogate has no authority to act until such time as the attending physician has determined the principal (YOU) lack the capacity to make informed health care decisions. Wouldn’t YOU want to decide who is going to make decisions about your medical treatment if you cannot? Hence, having a proper estate plan is paramount for adults of all ages and walks of life. When your wishes are known, they can be met after you are gone. A valid Will must adhere to Florida state law, must be clear and unambiguous, and is something that should be drafted with the assistance of an experienced attorney. Let the Montes & Lidsky Law Firm help you protect and provide for the ones you love after you are gone! We are located at 16351 Miramar Parkway, Miramar, Florida 33027 and can be reached at 954.417.6100.

Choosing a Weight Loss Program

Lipotropics: what, where & why

HCG Diet

Lipotropic Injections

It’s all over the media these days – obesity has reached epidemic proportions, posing a serious threat to the health, longevity, and quality of life of Americans nationwide. Since introducing our weight-loss protocols six years ago, Danik has seen literally hundreds of clients come through the door desperately seeking a magic bullet. Over 90% have left delighted with their weight-loss results via our HCG and Lipotropics programs. Those results can be directly attributed to the fact that Danik uses only pharmaceutical-grade HCG prescribed by our medical director, Dr. Hal Bass. This is important to know because the FDA is currently cracking down on the over-the-counter sale of HCG. In fact, the following government warning has been issued: “HCG is not approved for OTC sale for any purpose.” Taking public safety even further, the FDA and FTC are now aggressively issuing warnings to select drug companies apprising management that they are “selling illegal, over-the-counter HCG weight-loss drugs that have not been approved by the FDA and that make unsupported claims.”

HCG Fact and Fiction The HCG Diet is the most revolutionary weight-loss protocol available today. It’s also

46

FLAIR MAGAZINE

the safest, fastest, and easiest to stick with when administered properly under a doctor’s care. HCG is a natural hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. Its effectiveness in helping the body burn its own fat for energy was discovered by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, an endocrinologist whose groundbreaking work related to the physiology of weight loss can be read in his manuscript, Pounds and Inches. What he found was that pharmaceutically produced HCG - in combination with a very low calorie diet - promotes weight loss in three ways: 1) The hormone speeds up metabolism to burn calories fast, thereby eliminating fatigue; 2) HCG acts as an appetite suppressant, so dieters don’t suffer from hunger; and 3) The hormone promotes the burning of stored fat for energy, therefore aiding in overall weight loss as well as the elimination of localized, hard-to-lose fat . Danik offers five different 30-day HCG programs that include hormone taken by injection or sublingually, customizing our treatment plans to meet each patient’s special needs and weight-loss goals based on body type, lifestyle, overall health, and dietary restrictions. The results can be amazing – up to one pound a day or more.

Not ready to make that commitment? Danik offers a less rigid but similarly effective alternative – Lipotropic Injections – which require no restricted diet and just one shot weekly, administered by Danik’s medical staff. The term “lipotropic” literally means “fat loving.” Thus, lipotropic compounds are substances that stimulate the metabolism of lipids (fat) that would otherwise accumulate in the liver. The liver plays a critical role in metabolism, aiding in the digestion, storage and distribution of nutrients, as well as the elimination of metabolic toxins. If your liver is fatty, it can’t function properly and your metabolism slows down. This impedes weight loss. However, that impediment can be eliminated via Lipotropic Injections. Lipotropic nutrients aid the liver in its metabolic functions, which include the processing of fat, carbohydrates, and toxic protein by-products. Danik’s lipotropic cocktail is an all-natural compound of B-12 and other vitamins, plus minerals, and lipotropic agents. The treatment regimen involves just one shot per week administered at Danik, and the cocktail speeds up metabolism sufficiently to generate an average weight loss of one to three pounds per week. Lipotropic Injections can safely be used for up to 52 weeks to achieve well-paced, permanent weight reduction. These fat-burning injections can be used in conjunction with Danik’s HCG Diet to lose more weight even faster, particularly if you have 35lbs or more to take off. Danik MedSpa & Cosmetic Surgery is a full-service medical spa & cosmetic surgery center offering South Florida’s most complete range of aesthetic, weight-loss and wellness treatments. 11278 Pines Boulevard, Pembroke Pines, FL. 954.432.4343.

r o c e D THE

Wedding Reception Table Decoration Idea #1 The basic table decoration for weddings is to first the cover the table(s) with white tablecloth. You can then layer this plain, crisp white tablecloth with tulle or lace to give the table a more elegant look. You can also choose a dierent colored table linen for the table. But white tablecloth is the best choice since it allows you to decorate it with other colorful pieces of decorations. Once you have laid the tablecloth, you can proceed with other wedding decorations. Wedding Reception Table Decoration Idea #2 Table runners are essential items for decorating a table. Instead of fabrics that have predictable patterns, you can create your own unique and color coordinated table runners. For this just purchase rolls of wrapping paper in a pleasing pattern that matches the rest of the decor of your wedding reception. Cut the wrapping paper according to the size of the table and then glue satin ribbon all around the edges. This makes great table decorations for wedding receptions and the best thing is that you can create your own patterns on plain paper by spray painting it in a color of your choice. Wedding Reception Table Decoration Idea #3 Another great table decorating ideas for weddings is to use confetti in a color that matches your wedding theme and decor. You can choose from flower petals, paper confetti or crystals. These should ideally be scattered randomly on the table. Make sure that you don't use too much confetti as you need space for placing the dinner plates for your guests. You can use a mixture of rose petals and crystal confetti to lightly scatter around the table. Using confetti is one of the best ideas for wedding reception table decorations. Wedding Reception Table Decoration Idea #4 The most important element in table decorations for weddings is the wedding centerpiece. You can opt for either floral or non floral centerpieces for your wedding reception. Floral centerpieces for weddings can be made with a variety of flowers like calla lilies, roses, gladiolus, peonies, daisies and chrysanthemums. If you are on a budget, then you can use clusters of flower-filled cafe au lait bowls. These cafe au lait bowls can be found at kitchen and home supply stores or any thrift shop. Another great wedding centerpiece idea is to twist some twines in the shape of a nest and place some peonies on it. You can also use fruits and vegetables placed in a basket as non floral wedding centerpieces. Candles in two or three dierent colors also make great table decorating ideas for a wedding. Make sure that whatever table decorations you choose for your wedding , it matches the theme of your wedding. The basic things like table linen, napkins, and place cards should also be elegant and beautiful. A wedding reception can be made stunning and gorgeous, with great table decorations.

Gee Beauty promises that the entire bridal party will be glowing to complement the bride on her big day. Gee’s signature “Beauty Calls” even bring the beauty straight to you, offering on-site, group appointments. FOR THE BACHELORETTE PARTY: If Vegas is a little played out and you’re looking for something more relaxing (or, you need some R&R after a Miami night out), look no further than a bachelorette party at Gee Beauty. Champagne and a facial? Yes, please! Let the Gee girls take care of the party planning for you. All you have to do is relax and be pampered.

Gee offers a full range of cosmetics from brushes, powders and lipsticks in a variety of shades so you can be fully armed while vacationing with your new hubby.

THEIR ENGAGEMENT STORY! It was December 3rd 2012. James and Lauren spent the morning completing chores and purchased their first Christmas tree. Lauren left for a quick trip to the grocery store and when she returned home, James asked her to hang the lights on the tree. Lauren was surprised and thought the request was odd since James is a carpenter and should know how to do these things. As she started wrapping the lights around the tree, it wasn’t long before she spotted her sparkling engagement ring hanging on a single silver hook. Instantly Laurens hands begin to shake a tears fall from her eyes. She turned around and there was James on his knee, crying. James took Lauren’s hand and asked “will you be my wife?” Lauren’s answer…… “Yes!”

Engagement: July 8th 2011 Wedding: December 1st 2012 HOW DID YOU MEET? The couple met in family law class in law school at the University of Florida in the fall of 2007. They started as mere classmates/acquaintances for about a year until Kristine and her friends crossed paths with Mike and his friend out and about in Gainesville one evening. With a white lie boosting Mike's confidence, he managed to charm Kristine's number and plan a rendezvous at a future group outing. That group outing led to a first date at the Dragonfly (which is still the couple's favorite restaurant to this day). The rest, as they say, is history. ENGAGEMENT STORY: Mike and Kristine love to travel. Kristine had never been to Las Vegas, so they planned a trip to the hot new Vegas resort - The Aria. While there were plenty of public opportunities for a proposal, Mike knew Kristin would not like to share such a moment with a large crowd. So, armed with a shiny engagement ring, Mike chose there room with a beautiful Vegas view as the spot for the private big question. Kristin had no idea the proposal was coming and was completely surprised. After some initial shock and tears, Kristin said "Yes� and the couple shared a bottle of champagne and one of the most fun times of their lives.

WHAT ARE YOUR CAREERS? Mike is an in-house attorney with a large hospitality company in Orlando. Kristine is an attorney focusing in child welfare and dependancy law for the State of Florida. WHAT MADE YOUR WEDDING UNIQUE? Mike and Kristine wanted a smaller wedding, only including those closest to them. Mike often described it as, if you were invited, you would've been in the wedding party. We planned a Saturday brunch wedding, with appetizers and cocktails before the ceremony, with both bride and groom mingling with guests. The ceremony was brief, but meaningful, with guest standing, gathered around the couple. After the I do's brunch was served. A guest commented that the intimate setting of the wedding made him feel like he was really a part of the ceremony. As it ended up, things went perfectly, with beautiful weather, delicious food, wonderful music and amazing photos to remember the day! WHERE WAS THE HONEYMOON? Leaving a week after their wedding day, Kristine and Mike enjoyed there honeymoon in Oahu for an amazing 10 day adventure, visiting both Waikiki and the North Shore.

Mendocino County. Varietals including organically grown Mendocino Cabernet and Syrah are blended with a unique combination of organic juices including pomegranates, blueberries as well as Mediterranean blood oranges, acai berries and natural citrus essences. Starting with great taste and quality to match, Eppa Sangria was developed to appeal to wine drinkers on a variety of levels. Made from organic and natural ingredients, Eppa Sangria goes a step further catering to consumers looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle and drink something that is truly unique. Eppa is the first sangria on the market that is loaded with real luscious, ripe fruit juice, resulting in almost twice the antioxidants of red wine and fewer than 120 calories for a 5 ounce serving. “Being the first certified organic superfruit sangria, Eppa speaks to the way consumers live today,” says Gomez. “They are looking deeper into the organic category – both at home and when dining out. We understand eating to maintain a healthy lifestyle is as important to our audience as choosing foods that provide functional benefits.” Sangria generally signals fun and is social

by nature. Typically found on chic cocktail and brunch menus, sangria is viewed as a drink enjoyed by those who enjoy life. Having Eppa Sangria on hand makes it possible to indulge in the pleasures of delicious sangria without the added hassle of the numerous fresh ingredients sangria calls for. While most sangria recipes call for a variety of fruit, the fruits used to make Eppa Sangria are actually higher in functional benefits, making Eppa a convenient and delicious way to enhance any gathering – just chill, open and serve.

Eppa SuperFruit Sangria is quickly winning fans across the state and across the country. Eppa is already available at such fine retailers as ABC Wine & Spirits, Epicure Gourmet, Fresh Market and Whole Foods. Eppa Sangria is easy to spot on the shelf with distinctive award winning packaging and eye-catching graphics. The wine is 8.5% abv with a sug. retail price of $11.99 for a 750ml.
