Berger Blanc Suisse

dogs are gentle, very intelligent and learn easily. They are loyal to their family and may be wary around strangers, but are not to show shy or fearful behavior. The Berger Blanc Suisse breed derived from decades of evolution to a distinct breed type from the German Shepherd Dog. The Berger Blanc Suisse are suited for a variety of services to man from search and rescue to medical alert to therapy. The character of the Berger Blanc Suisse is gentler and mellower than that of the working lines of German Shepherd Dog, but are still very protective of their people.

Pastor Blanco Suizo

la raza es serena, pero cuando la situación lo exige sus instintos protectores lo pondrán alerta y listo para servir. Con aquellos que conoce es abierto y amigable y con los extraños puede ser un poco distante. Disfruta corriendo, jugando a rastrear o cualquier otra actividad con su familia humana. Es alegre, vivaz, inteligente y fácil de entrenar con buena disposición para pruebas de agility. Es un perro de trabajo con capacidad de adaptarse e integrarse a todo tipo de situaciones sociales.

Белая Швейцарская Овчарка

– в сущности, немецкая овчарка, но белого цвета. Будучи менее агрессивной, эта собака может быть идеальным компаньоном, мягким, послушным, легко обучаемым по разнообразным программам. Из них получаются великолепные собаки-спасатели, терапевты, поводыри, они успешно справляются с розыскной службой. Белая овчарка может быть хорошей семейной собакой, она обладает физическим здоровьем, неприхотлива и вынослива. Она отличается долголетием и сохраняет активность и работоспособность вплоть до преклонного возраста. Собака очень общительная. Cпособность потрясающе бесшумно перемещаться, даёт ощущение родства с полярным волком.

Glamour and Pet

was born in a European country of Latvia. After spending a fabulous childhood in capital city Riga, within a pet loving and creative family environment, I left for Russia to study at the Saint Petersburg University of Veterinary. 6 years later my love for pets pushed me further; I established my first Animal Hospital with the newest technologies in Latvia and continued to run it for 15 years. I have a big passion for pets, glamour and finding a way to put them together. Outside my hospital work hours I used to organize TV Fashion Dog Shows in Europe with a charity incentive, to help abandoned pets. My saying has always been:

‘Not every home should have a pet, but every pet must have a home.’

There are many ways to approach happiness, one of them being contact with pets. The opportunity to help pets grants me a sense of happiness, and sharing this feeling of joy is the mission of Glamour and Pet – it is a way for me to tell the story about how I see the world full of love. The pleasure that my work brings to people is my most important guideline and a genuine source of inspiration for me. ‘Glamour and Pet’ is a magazine that promises to be as a bottle of sparkling champagne, rich with passion and energy!

In my shows I would demonstrate the latest trends in fashion designer clothing, such as Roberto Cavalli, D&G and others, as well as exquisite jewelry. International celebrities, artists and singers from many countries would participate in my shows with their lovely pets. This way we erased geographical and political borders, as love to pets would unite everyone. That is how the brand of Glamour and Pet was born. 5 years ago I fell in love with the city of Miami and found many new friends here. I started working in an animal hospital, and with a group of pet lovers It’s all about the good life! we established the magazine of Glamour and Pet. We will be organizing special Glamour and Pet charity events in near future. You are very welcome Chief Editor, to participate in my Glamour and Pets club! Esther M. Veitnere www.glamourandpets.com

‘I think in volumes, I imagine in colours, I design in lights.’


Фаваз Груози

И

мя Фаваза Груози, его основателя, в 1993 году уже было на слуху: личность творческая, он обладал даром воплощать в жизнь смелые идеи в поисках красоты и совершенства. Его уникальные экстравагантные ювелирные украшения быстро завоевали сердца именитых клиентов по всему миру; нередко их характерное сияние можно было заметить на премьерах и торжественных церемониях. Тогда, 22 года назад, Фаваз Груози раскрыл секрет великолепия черных бриллиантов и вернул им почетное место в ювелирных коллекциях. Так он стал одним из самых оригинальных дизайнеров своего поколения. Его смелые и яркие решения сделали бренд de GRISOGONO знаменитым и вывели на лидирующие позиции в мире роскоши. Неутомимый творческий гений мастера, страсть к драгоценным камням и материалам помогали ему расширять границы возможного, отходить от клише, рисковать, для того чтобы заслужить признание ювелирных экспертов.

В 2000 году de GRISOGONO заявил о себе как о производителе часов Не ограничиваясь лишь дизайном, Фаваз Груози постоянно занят поиском инновационных решений, которые стали бы новым словом в часовом деле. Смелые формы, не противоречащие функциональным характеристикам, оригинальные часовые усложнения, игра с эстетическими кодами, раскрывающая искусство измерения времени, вот лишь некоторые из отличительных особенностей de GRISOGONO. Мастер в своем неутомимом стремлении к совершенству и идеальным формам удивляет ценителей неординарными дизайнерскими находками. Квинтэссенцией его роскошных ювелирных часов являются оригинальный стиль, харизматичный характер и удивительные часовые функции. Линейку бренда также составляют модели с усложнениями и уникальными калибрами, которые позволяют отображать время и другие параметры нестандартными способами.

Fawaz Gruosi E

n 1993, Fawaz Gruosi fundó de GRISOGONO. Este reputado esteta del diseño, con un don especial para la concepción de ideas audaces, ya estaba inmerso en una incesante búsqueda de la belleza y la excelencia. Con la creación de joyas llamativas y extravagantes, inmediatamente atrajo a una clientela internacional de prestigio y sus relucientes piezas pasaron a adornar a las celebridades en presentaciones y ceremonias de entrega de premios. Más de 22 años después de convertir el diamante negro en una de las piedras estrella de la joyería internacional, Fawaz Gruosi está considerado uno de los talentos creativos más influyentes de su generación. Sus diseños emblemáticos y atrevidos han situado a de GRISOGONO entre las firmas más ilustres del universo del lujo contemporáneo. Gracias a su intensa creatividad, impulsada por su pasión por las piedras preciosas y los materiales exquisitos, Fawaz Gruosi ha derribado barreras, ha roto los códigos del diseño y no ha temido en arriesgarse para conseguir que sus creaciones brillen literalmente entre la reputada élite de la alta joyería. Sus creaciones, a la vez que osadas e ingeniosas, respetan fielmente las tradiciones de la joyería.

de GRISOGONO también se ha forjado un nombre en el mundo de la relojería Más allá del trazo formal, Fawaz Gruosi ha propiciado siempre la innovación, decidido a brindar una nueva vida a la herencia relojera. El diseño de formas audaces que destacan las funciones, el desarrollo de complicaciones originales y el juego con los códigos estéticos para exaltar el arte de medir el tiempo: estas son solo algunas de las características esenciales de de GRISOGONO.

14


In 1993, Fawaz Gruosi founded de GRISOGONO with two associates based on the rue du Rhône in Geneva, offering customers exclusive works of art and precious jewellery. The first challenge for the new business was to find a name, the right name in Italian. One of his partners mentioned his mother had originally been the Marquise de GRISOGONO. It sounded powerful, mysterious and aristocratic, perfect for the luxury and exclusivity they were planning.

timeless elegance

Then, a few years later in 1995, Fawaz Gruosi took the reins and acquired the sole control of de GRISOGONO to branch out on his own, to follow his own ideas, his personal vision for a new generation of precious jewellery. He loved and understood the jewellery world, so rich in tradition, yet bound by conventions, so often out of step with a fast-changing world. He took huge risks, embarking on a capitalintensive business on a shoe-string. What he did have, however, was a single-minded, driven passion for jewels and gemstones, an affinity with design, and a total dedication to perfection and innovation. He saw the potential of jewellery to be an exciting, relevant part of women’s lives. He saw too the creative possibilities of the gemstones that so captivated him, even, or especially those that had been neglected, or disregarded through rigid rules and classifications. That is how he started the opening chapter for de GRISOGONO and almost immediate success that would give him strength and self-confidence. Since then, Fawaz Gruosi’s unique approach has been proven time and time again, resulting in ground-breaking styles, ideas and approaches that have since been emulated and admired. This has resulted in 22 years of ‘disruptive creations’, namely the art of continually coming up with something unexpected, appealing, original and new.

New Retro W S01 The New Retro Lady is a watch born in the 21st century and rooted in the 1950s. A source of inspiration for fashionistas, first ladies, princesses, actresses and quintessential Women, the New Retro Lady is destined to become a byword for timeless elegance.

TONDO TOURBILLON GIOIELLO The first de GRISOGONO tourbillon, a sparkling, technical creation The brand offers its first ever interpretation of the highly sophisticated tourbillon complication, and does so in a model dedicated to women. The diamond-swathed Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello houses an exclusive new in-house developed and assembled de GRISOGONO mechanical movement, fitted with an offcentred tourbillon at 8 o’clock. The collection takes the form of a trilogy comprising models set with black, brown or white diamonds. These boldly designed timepieces, stemming from advanced research, reflect the inimitable contemporary baroque style cultivated by de GRISOGONO – a perfect blend of exceptional technical mastery and jewellery artistry. The Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello illustrates the brand’s ever-growing mastery of the art of time measurement. This model introduces the first ever in-house mechanical hand-wound movement equipped with a tourbillon, unusually positioned at 8 o’clock. The tourbillon is an extreme horological complication that serves to compensate for the effects of gravity when a timepiece is in vertical positions, in order to optimise its precision. Created in 1801 by Abraham-Louis Breguet for a pocket watch, this delicate and complex mechanism has consistently inspired watchmakers in search of perfection. 16


Por primera vez la marca interpreta el tourbillon, una gran complicación, y lo hace en una pieza dedicada especialmente a las mujeres. Drapeado de diamantes, el Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello alberga un nuevo movimiento mecánico exclusivo de de GRISOGONO, dotado de un tourbillon excéntrico situado a la altura de las 8h, desarrollado y ensamblado en interno. La colección se revela como una trilogía compuesta por realizaciones decoradas con diamantes negros, marrones o blancos. Este garde-temps de diseño audaz, fruto de importantes desarrollos, refleja el más puro estilo barroco contemporáneo de de GRISOGONO. La unión de la técnica de excepción y el arte de la Alta Joyería.

El Tondo Tourbillon Gioiello ilustra el creciente dominio de la Casa en el Arte de la medición del tiempo. de GRISOGONO firma aquí su primer movimiento mecánico de cuerda manual dotado de un tourbillon, situado de manera inédita a la altura de las 8h. El tourbillon, complicación relojera extrema, permite compensar los efectos de la gravedad en las posiciones verticales con el fin de optimizar la precisión del guardatiempos. Creado en 1801 por Abraham Louis Breguet para un reloj de bolsillo, este delicado y complejo mecanismo inspira desde entonces a todos los relojeros en busca de la perfección. 17


S

witzerland’s capital of art and culture Nestling in the heart of Europe in the three countries corner where Switzerland, Germany and France meet, Basel is a pocket-sized metropolis that combines proverbial Swiss quality with a multicultural population. This makes the city unmistakably openminded, happy and innovative. The city sparkles with all kinds of culture. Nearly 40 museums with their long-established collections and spectacular special exhibitions are the foundation of Basel’s reputation as a city of art and museums. In 1471 Kaiser Friedrich III conferred upon Basel the privilege of being allowed to conduct trade fairs and exhibitions ‘for all eternity’. Since that time, the city has grown into one of the leading trade fair and congress centres in Switzerland. In addition to its central location and first-class transport connections, Basel also offers superb infrastructure and numerous options for framework programmes to support your event. The city’s congress centre is not located somewhere on the fringe of the city, but rather right in its heart - a fact that is appreciated by trade fair participants and visitors alike. All this attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to events such as Art Basel, the largest art fair in the world, or Baselworld, world trade fair for watches and jewellery, and many other diverse events.

Незабываемая встреча

‘Ангелы’

Зима все активнее вступала в свои права. С неба шел мягкий белый снег, укрывая Землю пушистым белым одеялом. На душе становилось легко и светло. При лунном сиянии всё вокруг казалось таинственным и загадочным. С приходом зимы начинается волшебство! Дома накрыт праздничный стол, где все смешалось — как будто всё пережитое в этом году, горькое и сладкое! Зимняя природа погружена в сладкий сон, но заснежённая дорожка парка влекла меня, обещая чудеса. И вот я уже в парке, вокруг тишина и благодать, изредка нарушаемая лишь хрустом ветки. Люблю вышагивать по мягкому и пушистому снегу. Красотища-то какая! Белое безмолвие. Но тут из далека, тишину неожиданно разрывает звук дыхания... И я замираю в восторге от увиденного! Ко мне на встречу уверенно приближается белоснежный волк ангельской красоты. Так вот он какой ‘Ангел’! Я уже готова было поверить в чудо... Но вдалеке раздался голос : ‘Эдельвейс - ко мне’. Я довольствовалось увиденным и жадно провожала его глазами. Я еще долго завороженно смотрелa ему вслед. Какой это был замечательный вечер! Я открылa для себя это чувство праздника! Чувcтво, что у меня есть все чтобы быть счастливой!

Белые собаки - защитники и целители Белые собаки, это защитники и целители нашей жизни - братья наши меньшие, которые обладают огромным магическим потенциалом! Больше чем мы можем себе представить. Собака чисто белой масти отличается тем, что она трансформирует любую энергетику в белую, положительную. Такую собаку можно заводить абсолютно всем без исключения, а в некоторых случаях даже необходимо. Это настоящий природный целитель. Встреча с белыми собаками, особенно крупными – такая же большая редкость, как встреча с белым котом. Белые собаки указывают на помощь со стороны ‘светлых сил’.

Также я очень люблю снимать портрет лошади, стараясь уловить характер и индивидуальность каждой модели. Бывает, в одном только лошадином взгляде отражается так много, и поймать этот миг – для меня большая удача.

our choice of cosmetic surgeon will be a choice you live with for years, if not your entire life. A successful procedure will make you feel more like yourself and give you greater confidence for years to come. On the other hand, ending up in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon increases your chances of having poor results which leads to additional costs, time, and heartache.

Board Certification Many people think they can depend on state medical boards to ensure that surgeons are qualified to perform the procedures they advertise, but that fact is that the government does not require a surgeon to be specifically trained in the procedures they offer. This problem is most acute in the area of cosmetic surgery, as many doctors with general surgery or other medical training hop on the cosmetic surgery bandwagon in pursuit of greater profits.

Experience In the Procedure You Want You now know the importance of specialization and board certification in cosmetic surgery, but cosmetic surgeons can have subspecialties within this field. This is because each

46


area of cosmetic surgery requires different skills: you can imagine how operating on a nose with bone and cartilage would be quite different from operating on a breast. So to find the right doctor, first you need to choose a board certified cosmetic surgeon. Second, be sure the cosmetic surgeon has plenty of experience in the specific procedure you plan to have. We all know that what one person finds beautiful may be unattractive to another. This is why it is so important to find a cosmetic surgeon that shares your aesthetic sensibility. For this reason, you can’t just trust a friend’s recommendation of a surgeon, or solely depend on the cosmetic surgeon’s experience. You’ll need to look carefully at the results for each surgeon you interview.

Emotional Connection You’re going to be spending quite a bit of time with your cosmetic surgeon both before and after surgery. Plus, surgery is a big deal, and there can be curves in the path to your new look. You need to feel very comfortable with your cosmetic surgeon and their support team.

Safety & the Operating Facility Your safety during surgery depends in large part on the anesthetist and the operating facility. Accredited operating rooms include key life support systems just in case something goes wrong.

Customer Service Throughout the process of improving your appearance, you want to be sure you are being served and treated well. Some of that will be obvious a few minutes after you walk in the door of cosmetic surgeon’s office.

‘Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well’ 47


SECRETS The history of chocolate starts with the first chocolate being drunk rather than eaten. The chocolate residue found in an ancient Maya pot suggests that Mayans were drinking chocolate 2,600 years ago, which is the earliest record of cacao use. The Aztecs associated chocolate with Xochiquetzal, the goddess of fertility, believing that cacao seeds originated in paradise and would bless anyone who ate them with spiritual wisdom, energy and enhanced sexual powers. The Aztecs discovered that roasting and grinding cocoa seeds made a nourishing paste that could be dissolved in water. In the New World, chocolate was consumed in a bitter and spicy drink called xocoatl, pronounced ‘shockohwattel’ often seasoned with vanilla, chilli pepper, and achiote, which we know today as annatto. Xocoatl was believed to fight fatigue, a belief that is probably attributable to the theobromine content. Chocolate was an important luxury good throughout pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, cocoa beans were often used as currency and only the highest levels of Aztec society could partake of this sacred beverage and chocolate continued to be a privilege of the elite until the early 1700’s. Chocolate has aphrodisiac properties - the Aztecs forbade women to eat it for this very reason. This legend still persists today, with ongoing speculation that chocolate reproduces the feelings of being in love, possibly through the presence of the stimulant PEA phenylethylamine, which boosts energy levels and increases serotonin in the brain, triggering sensations of pleasure. The more widely acknowledged belief is that chocolate makes people feel good because of the sensual pleasure it delivers - which explains much more succinctly our enduring love for this wonderful substance. Chocolate stirs up the emotions like no other food. Since it’s discovery, we have used it to express our feelings, soothe our bodies and minds and celebrate a wide array of social occasions.

Scientists ascribe the aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate, if any, to two chemicals it contains. One, tryptophan, is a building block of serotonin, a brain chemical involved in sexual arousal. The other, phenylethylamine, a stimulant related to amphetamine, is released in the brain when people fall in love.

Erected in 1939, The Carlyle remains an iconic Art Deco landmark of a greatly celebrated bygone era. A distinguished architectural statement of her time, The Carlyle Hotel was not only a magnificent example of the fanciful optimism in design and architecture occurring simultaneously with the tragedy of World War II, but a timeless product from the famed Art Deco architectural masters, Kiehnel and Elliott. The faรงade of the modern-day Carlyle remains virtually unchanged from the original, constructed over sixty-six years ago. One of the most iconic locales on Ocean Drive in South Beach, instantly recognizable, the Carlyle is one of the most sought after settings for photo shoots, televised programming, Hollywood, and independent, film making. Providing solace for a range of sensibilities, from sophisticated jet setter to entrepreneurial freethinkers, the Carlyle has established itself, as the cornerstone property for all that is grand in the new South Beach.

Carlyle has been featured in such films as : Bad Boys 2 2003, Random Hearts 1999, Pronto 1997, The Birdcage 1996, and Scarface 1983 56

Although green iguanas are not native to Florida, they are thriving in the warm South Florida climate. Iguanas are typically not aggressive, but they will defend themselves against pets and against people who try to catch or corner them. Iguanas can bite, scratch, or strike with their powerful tails. Since they are mostly herbivorous - plant eating, iguanas are probably here to stay. As with all wildlife, iguanas are protected by anticruelty laws, and inhumane treatment of them is punishable by law.
