D-ZYN CORNER Written by Carol Townsend, A.S.I.D. Interior Designer
Welcome to February 2018! Love is in the air, and new colors are out in the stores. Your first step on the road to your dream home was deciding in which fabulous high-rise tower you wanted to live…now what? Making that space say, “This is why I chose this home!” The latest unique furniture pieces are arriving from market. Your unique style may be in the very next store you happen to stop by and do a browsing run. Browsing is a fun project. You can put on your comfortable walking shoes, take pictures on your “pad” and then go have some fun. First, make a quick walk through the store. Then, go back and see which items caught your attention. Was it an area rug with bold beautiful colors? A large accessory piece that would fit just perfect in that one space you have been wondering about. Watch those great spring advertisements on TV, get some ideas from what their designers are throwing at you. Color, is your eye being caught by deeper tones? Are you being uplifted by softer colors? Are they in the cool or warmer tints? Is it too much for
you? Then you are not having fun. Make this an enjoyable outing, not just something you “have to” do. I have a new client who has just jumped from a smaller unit in another tower, to a much larger unit. The style is just not “their style,” but I advised them, take their time, get a feeling for the spaces they have, then start making dream lists. You don’t have to accomplish your total design project in a weekend. They have wonderful spaces, and have unique tastes. Right now, they are surrounded by an abundance of wood tones, when they are contemporary in their style. Painting those walls with a lovely taupe white will make an immediate impact on their visual senses. People who are cool color people, should not think about dark, earthy tones for their home. Now understand this when I mention cool versus warm colors. 95% of all customers decorate in warmer colors. And someone who normally dresses in blues, purples etc. would get very tired of dark blue or purple on their walls, but there is an artistic way to bring those cool colors in and be able to change them when you are tired of them. www.HighRiseLife.com
StageThis Interior Design There is a very wonderful store in Las Vegas, called Design’s by Simmons. They have great one of a kind furniture and accessory pieces that you will not see anywhere else. It is worth the trip to go and visit. It’s a designer’s heaven when it comes to decorating. They have transformed over the past year from carrying vignettes to displaying “open box” goods, and one of a kind pieces marked below online prices from high-end brands and unique imported goods from Italy. They have a huge selection from contemporary to traditional to choose from to meet your design needs. They also carry great area rugs, which can be ordered in larger sizes, if necessary. Paint the floor with a wonderful area rug and move up from there. Now find a neutral sofa, loveseat, sectional for your main space. Again go toward the cooler shades; you can add color and razzle dazzle with throws and pillows. I love changing my pillows with the different seasons, so a neutral seating area lets me have fun with my accessories. Lighting is important as well. Add details of your favorites, then make sure the bulbs are a cool white. Again, Design’s by Simmons has some one of a kind lighting pieces as well.
What better way to start the holidays by sharing the joy of giving at your Valentines event? Think of your friends and their wonderful personalities, then go find that perfect gift for them. Share the joy of your new home with family and friends. Listen to their comments about what they love about your new space, so you can formulate your design plans for 2018. Take pictures of your surroundings out that beautiful patio looking out onto the world. I have suggested we copy one of my client’s panoramic pictures onto a very large canvas and hang that on her massive living room wall. It will remind them of the day she took the picture, and bring the colors of our desert sky into her home. Love the adventure you are on, don’t let stress step in your path… have a friend who understands your plan, look at your photos from the magazines you have taken apart and go for it!

Slimdown Secrets of Food & Fitness Superstars Written by Merilee Kern
For most of us mere mortals, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen can be tough. Those who really struggle with weight loss and maintaining healthy lifestyle choices can feel a lot like Sisyphus, the mythological Greek figure eternally doomed to push a giant boulder up a hill over and over only to see it roll to the bottom again and again. Even with the best of intentions and even if you do achieve your weight and fitness goals, progress can all-too-easily slip back down that proverbial hill just like Sisyphus’s burdensome boulder. The ensuing disappointment can be enough to prompt even the strong-willed to head to the emotional dark side and devour a pint (or two) of chunky monkey. The reality is, willpower alone isn't enough to sustain healthy habits and maintain fitness over the long-term. Unless you base your diet, exercise and other lifestyle choices on correct, factual information from credible sources, backsliding remains an ever-present threat. Sadly, the health and fitness information superhighway is strewn with myths and misinformation. Incorporating faulty ideas into your diet and exercise routine is like stepping in a huge pothole. You go forward in good faith only to find your progress sidetracked at best, severely derailed, or completely obliterated at worst. In my quest to help health-seekers keep their “body boulder” at the top of that hill, I've sought out advice from health, food and fitness industry field experts. These are pros who have been around the block or two and, in many cases, have literally written the book. Their insight and advice runs the gamut, including what food choices to make for a healthy lifestyle and how to effectively multitask your exercise regimen. When I asked them for their best slimdown secrets, this is what the food and fitness pros had to say: "Restrict calories without hunger. This means balancing protein to carbohydrate at every meal. If you do it correctly you will not be hungry for five hours after a meal." --Dr. Barry Sears, ZoneDiet.com "After a long day, cooking is the last thing on my mind. My new obsession is meal delivery services. It’s a great way to guarantee veggies at your doorstep for every meal. Growing fresh herbs and tomatoes on my kitchen windowsill also keeps me connected to the food I eat." --Padma Lakshmi, Top Chef "Get fit with fiber. Dietary fiber does more than contribute to what we delicately refer to as ‘regularity’—it also aids in digestion and can play a role in preventing heart disease and colon cancer, among other conditions. Fiber is also an effective tool for weight management: it fills you up quickly despite being very low in calories, slows digestion and keeps blood sugar on a level plane, which maintains normal insulin levels associated with a healthy weight. Aim for at least 10 grams of fiber with each meal (and 5 grams with each snack)." --Harley Pasternak, HarleyPasternak.com "Skip the bread basket and the olive oil usually served in fancy restaurant as soon as you sit down. This represents about 400 calories of oil and white bread at each sitting on average. 15 meals with bread and oil and it is 2 pounds of extra fat on your body (indeed, you need to eat 7,000 extra calories on average to gain 2 pounds of fat). Do like the French, only eat one slice of bread with your meal. Don't stuff yourself before the good food is put on the table." --Valerie Orsoni, LeBootCamp
"Maintain your exercise routine and change it up even when living a fast paced lifestyle, traveling or on set! Take the time to experience new gyms, exciting workouts and taking your workout outdoors while traveling. This will keep you motivated and refreshed in your workout goals. Consider wearing a Fitbit and tracking your food intake on My Fitness Pal to stay on target as well. Get out of your comfort zone — try a barre, Flywheel, Boot Camp, or Yoga class in the local area." --Stacy Goldberg, SavorFull.com "There are tons of fad diets out there that promise results, but what these diets don’t disclose is the extreme calorie deprivation and lack of substantial nutritional components. Cutting too many calories makes your body think that you are too lean and slows down your metabolism and holds up the fat burning process to conserve energy. Every individual's body is different in what to consume and how much to consume." --Steve Saunders, PowerTrainSports "Always cook with cast iron. It’s the oldest pan in the book, but there’s a reason for it. Cast iron allows you to cook with less oil and helps the meat cook at an even temperature. You’ll never have to worry about the pan releasing any unhealthy toxins, like nonstick." --Chef Chris Kydes, The Flaming Greek "As a co-host, I’ve learned that cooking with someone in the kitchen promotes more than just good food. It demonstrates positivity in a relationship because you are both cooking for the greater good (meaning each other). It also creates a camaraderie in the kitchen. If one is trying to change themselves, either eating better, losing weight, cooking together helps achieve that." --Kami, Co-Host, The Flaming Greek "Add heart healthy cocoa flavanols to your diet. Cocoa flavanols are powerful phytonutrients that are scientifically proven to help promote a healthy heart by supporting healthy blood flow. CocoaVia is a cocoa extract supplement that delivers a high concentration of cocoa flavanols. It can be consumed either before or after exercise and scientific studies demonstrate that within a few hours of consuming a product with cocoa flavanols, the cocoa flavanols enter the body and start to help support your cardiovascular system. Add this product to yogurt, oatmeal, coffee or your morning smoothie. It’s a delicious way to support your heart health." -- Harley Pasternak, HarleyPasternak.com “When time is of the essence opt for compound, multijoint exercises – squats with shoulder press, walking lunge with bicep curl. This will give you more bang for your buck by engaging more muscles and burning more calories.” --Ray Grayson, Mr. Shut Up And Train "You need only cut 100 calories per day, on average, to lose 10 pounds in a year. So be mindful of everything. Cut just one tablespoon of olive oil per day and you’ll lose an average of 12 pounds in a year. Cut calories where you won’t even miss them." --Devin Alexander, Celebrity Chef While these experts cover a breadth of territory, what's most notable is the overwhelming message that eating a healthy diet and making smart choices about fitness doesn't have to be complex. Small choices made consistently each and every day is what’s needed if you want to lose weight, get fit and stay healthy. You certainly don’t need to feel deprived…and may enjoy the process.

Go with the Gut 7 Foods to Eat for Better Skin,Hair, and Mood Written by Dr. Christopher Calapai D.O. All symptoms of the body from thin, dull hair, and sallow skin, to acne breakouts, body aches and sluggish energy all point to the gut. Gut health is incredibly important making mindful eating an essential part of longevity and anti-aging. If you want to feel vibrant and maintain a youthful appearance up to 15 years younger than your actual age, start weaving these key foods into your diet.
Garlic: When we have an overgrowth of candida in the gut we experience things like acne breakouts, bloating, and constipation. Garlic mitigates all of this because it kills candida. Garlic also aids in digestion and immunity. Garlic also has antiinflammatory properties making it ideal for joint aches. Allicin, which serves as an anti-aging, antifungal benefit to garlic aids in smoothing skin and preventing acne and other skin conditions.
Ground Flaxseed: Responsible for helping food to travel effortlessly and smoothly through the GI tract, flaxseed keeps us regular. Flaxseed also contains cancer fighters called lignans which also ward off heart disease. Flaxseed helps to minimize rashes, skin flare ups and irritation. When you consume flaxseed, your skin becomes more even toned and less sensitive.
Apple Cider Vinegar: One of the best ways to address any digestive issues is to combine a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water or in tea and drink it before a meal. It helps your body to break down food. It helps with to prevent indigestion and stomach issues after eating. Anytime you can aid the digestive process youâ€™ll notice glowing skin and a youthful radiance.
Celery & Celery Juice:
Another anti-inflammatory and cancer fighter celery also lower blood pressure and rids us of sugar cravings (and sugar makes the skin sallow and leads to breakouts). The natural salts in celery juice maintain a healthy gut ph. The common recommendation is to drink 16 ounces on an empty stomach and improvements to digestion and physical appearance will be evident within 10 days.
Kimchi is delicious and sauerkraut or pickled vegetables can make for a nice topping to a salad or mid-day snack. These fermented foods are packed with good bacteria which balances the microbiome, which is the anchor for our health and immunity.
Another “prebiotic” fiber that keeps the gut healthy and balanced is asparagus. You can add garlic to it and broil it in the oven offering a 1 -2 punch of gut friendly foods in one delicious side dish. It’s important to note that people who suffer from stomach pain may not do well with prebiotics in larger amounts. If the gut is already inflamed these foods can cause a flare up.
High in fiber, cauliflower helps the gut maintain healthy microbes. This is important because when microbes or gut flora are out of order a whole slew of symptoms become evident. These include digestive issues, depression or anxiety, and skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

How toTell a Skincare Hero From a Zero Written by Dr. Margarita Lolis, M.D.
When it comes to skincare do you really get what you pay for? From the newest ingredients to the latest in-office procedures we connected with Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Margarita Lolis based in Northern New Jersey with her insights on how to tell a skincare zero from a hero. Here’s what is certain; there are no firming or tightening products whose results can duplicate what you derive from in office procedures such as dermal fillers, Botox, lasers, or cosmetic surgery. Dr. Lolis explains that while there are anti- aging products or ingredients that do perform significantly better than others and can make a profound difference in the skin’s appearance while others are simply “false hope in a jar.” Why don’t most products work the way they claim? Almost without exception, when you buy a product claiming to tighten skin, its effects, if any, are due to ingredients such as film-forming agents. Just like the name states, film-forming agents form a film on the skin, and that can make the skin “feel” tighter. The effect is temporary, and you won’t see noticeable lifting of sagging skin, but the sensation is often enough to convince women that the product is working. Dr. Lolis stresses that, “Skin just feeling tighter is different from making a real change for the better in the tone or laxity of your skin. Using what really works will get you closer to the results you want.”
THE HEROES 1. Sunscreen Dr. Lolis says, “Sunscreen of an SPF 30 or above is the best antiaging cream you can use. It prevents skin cancer as well as UVA rays that cause loss of collagen and wrinkles in the skin especially when reapplied every 2 hours. My favorite base sunscreens have titanium or zinc oxide in them as active ingredients.” 2. Retinoids & Glycolic Acid “Retinoids are the go-to option to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and help boost collagen production,” says Dr. Lolis.” She adds, “Over the counter retinols are good, Neutrogena makes a good one, or prescriptions such as Retin- A.” Glycolic acid also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and helps fade pigmentary damage from the sun. “I often have patients alternate nights with retinoid and glycolic,” says Dr. Lolis. 3. Vitamin C Vitamin C is a great antioxidant which reduces free radical damage and is great for anti-aging and helps
brighten the skin. Dr. Lolis often recommends it in the morning, underneath sunblock, or at night if patients are too sensitive to tolerate retinoids and glycolic acid. 4. Ceramides Ceramides are a type of lipid found in the membrane of cells. Dr. Lolis states that, “They help hold skin cells together, forming a protective layer that plumps the skin and retains moisture. Ceramide levels decrease as we age which leads to loss of hydration, less skin turnover and dryer, more damaged skin. Replenishing the skin’s ceramide levels will help restore moisture and fortify the skin’s natural barrier, helping skin look and feel younger.” Lolis recommends using a moisturizer containing ceramide moisturizer for your whole body daily. 5. Hydroquinone Hydroquinone works to even out sun spots, blotches, and mottled skin. A little hydroquinone goes a long way. “It’s the most effective ingredient for bleaching skin,” says Dr. Lolis. Hydroquinone fades hyperpigmentation by blocking the enzyme that triggers melanin production in the skin. 6. Green Tea Extract Green tea extract is loaded with nutrients called polyphenols, which have been shown to fight free radicals. Studies have found that ingredients in green tea can reduce sun damage and may protect against skin cancer when applied topically. Dr. Lolis offers that, “Using green tea extract under sunscreen can provide an extra dose of protection. Polyphenols in creams and lotions may help slow signs of aging, reduce sagging skin and decrease wrinkles.”
THE ZEROES Most of anti-aging creams are still based on moisturizers such as mineral oil. Wrinkles look worse when they are dry, so any kind of moisturizer helps, but its only temporary and doesn’t address the root cause of the wrinkles such as collagen loss, free radical damage, sun damage and environmental factors. Don’t be fooled by the antiaging labels. Unless there is an actual “active ingredient” such as retinol, the benefit is just moisture but nothing else. 1. B Vitamins Many forms of vitamin B (like B12) can only be absorbed in the small intestine, so no matter how much is loaded into your moisturizer or serum, it’s not going to make a www.HighRiseLife.com
difference. “Vitamins like niacin can influence the skin’s texture and color, but your skin can’t absorb them,” Dr. Lolis explains. If you really want to tap into the power of vitamin B to improve your skin’s glow and appearance, stick to eating leafy greens like spinach, asparagus, beans, and peas. 2. Caffeine Much like a Starbucks latte for your brain, caffeine in skin creams can give a boost to your skin, too; until it wears off. “Caffeine can temporarily reduce puffiness, especially around your eyes,” explains Dr. Lolis. “But don’t expect permanent results.” 3. Botanical Extracts These are ingredients extracted from plants (flowers, roots, stems, trees, etc.) used in skin care for everything from healing blemishes to reducing fine wrinkles. They have been used for centuries and have anecdotal purposes in many cultures. Botanical extracts need to remain on your skin to work. Dr. Lolis explains that, “In cleansers, there is simply not enough contact time on your skin for any true antiaging benefit to take place. Another issue is that most botanical extracts are water soluble, which means that the moment you wet your skin and begin to wash your face, they’re watered down losing efficacy. 4. Collagen and Elastin “Collagen and elastin in skin-care products can serve as good water-binding agents, but they cannot fuse with your skin’s natural supply of these supportive elements,” explains Dr. Lolis. “In most cases, the collagen molecule is too large to penetrate the skin,” she adds. It’s very important to do your research because there’s a lot of packaging and a lot of hype. The best thing to do is visit your dermatologist and aesthetician who can develop a skin care regimen that works to address your skin concerns based on skin type. About the expert: Dr. Margarita Lolis, M.D. is a board-certified cosmetic, medical dermatologist and a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon with over 20 years of experience. In her practice, she addresses common skin concerns such as acne prevention and treatment in both teens and adults, sun-damage, skin discoloration, wrinkles, changes to skin texture and loss of volume. On the medical side, she is a trusted expert in melanoma and over-all skin health. Dr. Lolis prides herself in honoring facial symmetry to deliver a natural look to her clients. She always recommends a healthy skin care regimen plus lifestyle habits that are aligned with her holistic approach to beauty.

How to Get a Nose Job onYour Lunch Break Written by Dr. Deepak Raj Dugar Nose jobs are one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. But not every form of rhinoplasty is as involved – or as permanent – as you might guess. In fact, one type of nose job happens so quickly – in just 10 minutes – that you practically could do it over your lunch break before heading back to the office. Instead of surgery, this nose job involves an injection – and it’s an option that’s gaining in popularity, according to a recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. “Some people don’t want to go under the knife and they aren’t after significant and permanent changes to their nose,” says Dr. Deepak Raj Dugar. A world-renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. “Instead, they are looking for subtle, temporary results.” Dugar specializes in the Scarless Nose (closed rhinoplasty) surgical technique, but he also performs many non-surgical procedures for the face and body, such as the 10-minute nose job that uses injections of hyaluronic-acidbased fillers. “These fillers are often used for lip and facial enhancement, but also can be used on your nose,” Dugar says. For anyone considering non-surgical (liquid) rhinoplasty, Dugar says there are a few things to keep in mind: • Fillers will only mask a bump and hide asymmetries. This procedure does not make your nose smaller or give you an overall
different shape. You’ll need surgical rhinoplasty to achieve that. “But you can fill around a bump to create an illusion of a straighter nose,” Dugar says. “Be aware, though, that using filler adds volume to the nose, so if your concern is that your nose is too big or crooked you would not be a good candidate.” On the other hand, this does help correct a droopy nose by lifting the tip slightly. • Choose your injector carefully. When it comes to the nose, technique is everything, Dugar says. Some areas of the nose should be off limits to the injections, he says, such as the alar rims, the bony sidewalls, and the glabella (the skin and underlying bone between the eyebrows, just above the nose). There can be serious consequences, he says, so you should carefully research the procedure and the person who will be doing it. • Do you want a temporary or permanent fix? This non-surgical approach has a relatively short shelf life to it, so don’t go into the procedure expecting to change your nose forever, Dugar says. The longevity of fillers can range from six to 12 months, but sometimes can stretch into as long as two years. In contrast, a surgical rhinoplasty is a permanent fix to your problem. “If you want to make changes to your nose, or any facial feature, you should weigh the pros and cons of a permanent solution vs. a temporary solution,” Dugar says. “You need to decide what it is you are really after and then determine if the procedure you’re considering will accomplish that.”

I first met Patti back in 2011, when she became my mentor and introduced me to the matchmaking industry. We’ve kept in touch throughout the years and she’s always kept a fresh outlook on dating and relationship trends. For High Rise Life February issue, I wanted to offer readers content that encompasses everything that my job and the month of February represents: love and helping more people find it. We’re focusing in on the world of online dating and where it’s headed in the future. Are people completely over it? Has there been more success with finding love online throughout the years? According to a 2015 study conducted by eHarmony, a record of 40 percent of people online date. With a percentage like that, there’s a steady chance that people will continue to seek love through dating apps. Regardless of if you’re seeking love virtually or working with a matchmaker, quality photos are necessary. I always encourage my single friends to take the time and get some professional, good photos of themselves taken. This just shows that you’re serious and willing to put your best self out there when searching for a partner. You’ll thank us later. Here are Patti’s answers about the future of finding love online this Valentine’s season. Q: What are some online dating trends that you think will emerge in 2018?
vegan, dog lover, runner, hiker - anything that holds your interest, there will be a site or online community where you can meet other singles. However, the problem with the community has been lack of presentation. People don’t put much effort into their photos or write anything in their profile to let the user know who they are, then they complain that they can’t get a date. In the old days of the online digital community, we had profiles with statistics on height, location, income, etc. Millennials don’t really give it much thought, though the average online consumer is 46; as we age we want much more information about who we are dating, and we don’t want to go to Instagram or Facebook to find out. We demand they give us that information up front or we won’t pop on to that community anymore. I’m horrified by men's pictures on their online profiles. Men just don’t care - some of their images look like mugshots, but women are taking pride in their appearance not only with Botox and a stunning wardrobe, though they're following the Kardashian system and taking beautiful selfies. I think people need to become better photographers or take a professional shot to get ahead of the curve. I also believe matchmakers will not go away. I think they are in a time of reestablishing their brand because high-end wealthy singles often get overwhelmed by sitting online and going through a thousand photos a day and not getting anywhere. Matchmakers will begin creating their own individual maps with their own databases to cater to their highend clientele.
I think the online dating industry is going to become even more popular with niche sites. For example, if you are a
Q: What is some online dating advice you would offer women? Because we live in such a dangerous time, as in the Craigslist Killer, it’s important to use apps such as Spokeo and Intelius to perform background checks. Not just before you meet them though before entering a serious relationship. I don’t think catfishing is the biggest problem anymore. People take words at face value and that’s dangerous. I tell my girls to use the apps to check them out. You can always use Facebook, check his business website, look at Instagram, everything. Every Instagram tells a story. One other thing I recommend is taking a car service such as Uber or Lyft to protect yourself because sometimes dates go wrong and you need to get out of there fast. Always meet in a public place, make sure your friends know where you are. Q: What is some advice you would give men who online date? For men, it’s a different story: always offer to pick up the woman, though, again, she will probably meet you in a public place and drive herself on the first date. The biggest problem with men is that once they start chatting online they don’t ask for the girl's number right away. So, I always tell them you can ask for their number as well as give your own (assuming you are comfortable). Don’t hesitate, make a date. Women loathe texting and chatting back and forth. Women cannot fall in love unless they hear your voice - it’s biologically impossible. They do not get invested as they fall in love between the ears. So, if you don’t call, you are screwed. She will go MIA and ghost you unless you take the time to pick up the phone rather than text her all the time. Q: For my successful and single friends, where do you recommend they find their next date? A lot of people refuse to get out of the house and believe online dating is the only way. That should only be 25 percent of your search. You still need to mix it up by attending social events, charity events, going to private clubs and then 6th degree it with friends. Go to opposite-sex parties. Go with your male friends to the gym if you are a woman and vice versa. If you don’t like someone, but think they are a good match, pay it forward and give a referral. If you fix up a friend, have them set you up. Keep 6th degree’ing it and everything will pan out. It’s the law of averages and all it takes is one. Q: How can I help my friend find a good match? To be a good matchmaker the secret is to give the person what they really want. And that doesn’t mean only friends and family. It could

Photo by Mark Rutherford be a stranger. Figuring out their type is key, then start fixing them up. Don’t get involved once you fix them up - let it ride. Once they thank you and take you to dinner you’ll know they are dating. It can be anyone from your Doctor to Lawyer to a co-worker to a friend. Look up and look around; there’s someone for everyone. Q: How do I get back into dating after getting out of a long-term relationship? The hardest part about getting back into dating after a long-term relationship is to be open. Don’t try to recreate the ex in the new guy or girl because you'll be looking for a needle in a haystack. The first line of defense is to stay productive. Dopamine and endorphins make the body feel relaxed and will help you feel confident; you might even lose a few pounds in the process. The next step would be to tell
friends and family you are open to meeting new people. I'd also suggest going to social events and lastly, getting online. Start picking out who you are interested in, give a like, and let men or women pick you. Open your social circle and get away from the same people you always hang out with because that'll only lead you to a dead end. Make new friends and they will lead you to the one.

12 Haute European Destinations to Visit in 2018
Written by Ingrid Levin
Since, we all survived the bitter arctic conditions, fires, mudslides, or hurricanes why not treat yourself and book a trip to one of these 12 Haute Destinations to visit in 2018 for some well-deserved vitamin D, rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Porto Cervo, Sardinia
Rated as one of my top three destinations to travel in the summer, its romantic in every way. Try the freshly peach blended Bellini at Cala di Volpe hotel. The lunch scene at the hotel is Vogue in 3D. As you eat, you will witness good-looking men and women with their sun-kissed Mediterranean tan followed by a sea of yachts.
This marvelous Spanish island is known for more than just clubbing. It can be deliciously romantic. For day-time lounge by the pool while you relax and sip on a Sangria with Cava be sure to stay at Destino, or Ibiza Gran Hotel. Both places offer soothing deep house sounds that will melt your troubles away.
St. Tropez, France Pure glamour, natural beauty, excellent dining experiences as well as nightlife tops this place on the list of European places to visit. Everyone is so friendly and hospitable. As you walk along the velvet white sandy beaches be sure to visit Bagatelle St. Tropez or Club 55.
Mykonos, Greece This dreamy cosmopolitan island on the Aegean Sea offers a variety of activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, or Jet Skiing. If you prefer a hedonistic moment and dance the night away be sure to check out Cavo Paradiso, which hosts the biggest international DJâ€™s while you see the sun come up. Another smaller hip spot is Guzel bar and lounge. www.HighRiseLife.com
Located in the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is charming with the limestone streets and baroque buildings. It has been the setting for King’s Landing in the HBO show Game of Thrones. No visit to Dubrovnik would be complete without a walk around the spectacular city walls, the finest in the world and the city’s central claim to fame. From the top, the view over the old town and the shimmering Adriatic is sublime.
Sveti Stefan, Montenegro
Located on the stunning Bay of Naples and only accessible by ferry (private yacht, or helicopter), Capri’s streets offer panoramic views straight out of a postcard. Its exclusive unspoiled island gives you an opportunity to refresh your state of mind. To get the real feel for this place, I recommend renting a villa through Airbnb. However, if you really want a taste of luxury, stay at the 5-star Capri Tiberio Palace Hotel.
Madeira, Portugal Madeira, Portugal ensures every European comfort with almost every tropical luxury. One of the most scenic is Levada do Caldeirao Verde, which meanders four miles past leafy glades and plunging ocean views before emerging into a clearing sprinkled by a 300-foot (91 meters) waterfall. Look down from above the clouds at Pico do Arieiro, Madiera’s third-largest peak. Madeira also produces Madeira, a fortified wine, so have a glass and enjoy the sunset.
Sveti Stefan is a fortified island village connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, its photogenic jumble of 15th-century stone villas overlooking an excellent pink-sand beach and tempting turquoise waters. The island was nationalized in the 1950s and is now part of – and owned by – the luxurious Aman resort, meaning it’s off-limits to all but paying guests. Have a drink at Hotel Adrovic and watch the breathtaking sunset.
Ashford Castle, Cong, Ireland Ever wanted to feel and live like a Royal, family member? Then visit Cong, Ireland to get the full experience by staying at Ashford Castle, an actual Medieval castle formerly owned by the Guinness family (known for their beer), that has now been transformed into a 5-star hotel. A regular host to royalty, dignitaries, and celebs, it was even voted one of the best hotels in the world for celebrity sightings by Travel + Leisure.
Lake Como, Italy Surrounded by elegant old villas—and the scenic towns surrounding the lake are exquisite. The best place to stay is Casa Ville de Este. Rent a boat and take a tour around the lake. Then stop by Harry’s Bar and Restaurant for a refreshing Bellini.
Monaco, France The sexy French Riviera is not just a host of Formula 1, but it offers an opportunity to gamble, or cruise across the Mediterranean. Monaco is the second smallest country in the world, but it makes up for its size in glamour.
Zurich, Switzerland Not just for bankers and Hedgies it also has some of the most important artworks in the world. They are displayed in the Kunsthaus and the Rietberg Museum. Spend a day shopping on Bahnhofstrasse, one of the world’s most expensive and exclusive shopping areas or go swimming with the swans on the clear Lake Zurich, while surrounded by stunning views of the Swiss Alps.

Tallest Building in Western US to be Built by 100% Minority Groupâ€™s $1.2B Development After Unanimous Selection by LA City Council Angels Landing Partners LLC, a 100% minority-owned team comprised of the Peebles Corporation, MacFarlane Partners, and Claridge Properties, has been selected by the City Council of the City of Los Angeles, California to manage development of the coveted Angels Landing Site, and will build the tallest building in the Western US as part of the plan.
“Our team is inspired by the great opportunity to transform the Los Angeles skyline with our iconic building, enhance residential life downtown, and forever change how large buildings are built in Los Angeles by ensuring that all residents and businesses receive equal access to career and business opportunities. We look forward to working with the City of Los Angeles and their team, Council member Jose Huizar and the Chief Legislative Analyst, Oscar Lxco,” said Don Peebles, Chairman and CEO of the Peebles Corporation. Following a unanimous approval from the City of Los Angeles Economic Development Committee, the full City Council approved the approach by the team to develop the 2.24acre site at Fourth and Hill Streets. The estimated budget, including acquisition, is $1.2 billion with a construction phase expected to run for 41 months with completion due in late 2024. “We join our partners in thanking the City of Los Angeles for their support of our team and our plan,” said Victor MacFarlane, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of MacFarlane Partners. “Having invested in properties in downtown Los Angeles for the past 15 years, we are firm believers in DTLA and enjoy a valuable working relationship with Councilmember Jose Huizar. Angels Landing gives us an exciting opportunity to broaden the transformational work we are doing nearby in developing the Park Fifth residential project and supporting the Pershing Square Renew effort.” Ricardo Pagan of Claridge Properties commented on the award, “We are honored and thank the city of Los Angeles, council member Jose Huizar, the CLAs office and the selection committee for supporting and entrusting us with the future of Angels Landing. We will remain committed to bringing forward a world class asset to the city and provide opportunity and growth for Angelenos. Today’s vote marks an important day in the future growth of this city, our team is grateful for being a big part of it.”
The winning plan aims to increase pedestrian flow and activity, engage the public, and activate the site and surrounding neighborhood. The proposed transit-oriented development will provide a better experience for Pershing Square Metro Station commuters as well as pedestrians by increasing accessibility to the site—currently, one of the major issues affecting the difficult hill-like structure. In addition to building two towers, one of which will be the tallest residential building in the Western US standing at 1,000 feet, the master plan for the mixed-used development will deliver approximately: Two Hotels operated by SBE (192-key SLS hotel; 289-key Mondrian hotel) 425 apartments, including affordable housing units 250 condominiums Nearly 45,000 SF of restaurant and retail space An elementary charter school serving K through Grade 5 +50,000 SF of publicly accessible open space, including a 25,000 SF central outdoor gathering space for year-round events called “Angels Terrace” A mini food hall which will incorporate local businesses The design team is led by Handel Architects and OLIN, two global design firms recognized for their excellence and distinguished projects. Handel which will oversee the design, recently completed one of the most critically-acclaimed high rises in Los Angeles, Ten Thousand Santa Monica. OLIN, best known for The Plaza at Santa Monica and ONE Beverly Hills, will handle the landscaping.

Nobu ResidencesToronto Wins Prestigious IIDA Global Excellence Award for its Acclaimed Presentation Gallery
The highly anticipated high-rise anchoring Canada's first Nobu Hotel and Nobu Restaurant was honored with a prestigious International Interior Design Association Award for its remarkable presentation gallery. The IIDA Global Excellence Awards honor and celebrate outstanding originality and excellence in the creation of international Interior Design/ Interior Architecture projects from around the globe. Venerable interior design firm Studio Munge, which envisioned the space and is overseeing the interior design for the integrated residences, hotel and restaurant, and principals from developer Madison Group were recognized for their vision during a ceremony that took place on January 20, 2018 in Paris, France. North America's first integrated Nobu Residences, Nobu Hotel and Nobu Restaurant was announced last summer at a media event in the presentation gallery attended by Nobu Hospitality founders, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Academy Award winner Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper. The gallery is a design marvel â€“ with the team electing to control the natural light to maintain the luxury brand's exclusivity and transporting visitors into a modern oasis representative of the Nobu lifestyle. The interplay between the ethereal living elements and the lack of natural light allows guests to absorb themselves in the tranquil atmosphere, evoking a desirable cadence for one's residential life. "Unlike most presentation centers, the Nobu Gallery is a completely immersive experience that allows visitors to suspend
outside influences," said Josh Zagdanski, Vice President, Hi-Rise, Madison Group. "When we first discussed concepts with the visionary team at Studio Munge, they understood that the Nobu lifestyle is not only the embodiment of sophisticated materials that will enhance the building, but that the space must capture a specific sensibility that people identify with. The Nobu Gallery is a very special environment and perfectly heightens that feeling. We are immensely proud that it is being recognized globally." Embodying the elements of a Japanese reflection pond, guests enter a long corridor by a symmetrical water feature. The many delicate streams of water flow downwards from the ceiling, gathering in a curved pool which is integrated into the jet-black stone floor. The rhythm of the water is a metronome of tranquility as guests emerge into the open space amongst interior walls shaped with blonde, vertical wood slats reminiscent of the Japanese Hinoki wood. Absent of all-natural light, the space transforms into an intimate succession of lounge seating illuminated by soft, ambient lighting. Oversized black and white portraits autographed by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert De Niro welcome guests into the model suite. A model kitchen and living room invite guests to experience the brand's offerings through elegant marble surfaces and refined modern furnishings while suspending the hustle and bustle of the cosmopolitan downtown experience outside the presentation gallery's boundaries.

2018 Real Estate Trends Real estate market is continuing the same pattern that began in 2017.

Annual Change (%) Nevada NV Nevada NV
Annual Change (%) California CA California CA
If we look at the average price per square foot in a single family market January 2016 it was $118, January 2017 $128 and January 2018 - $140. In December 2017, we had 1.6-month supply available. There is currently shortage of supply when we look at properties 250k and less. It is still the sellers market and they control the prices in lower price segments. If you are looking for a property within this price range, you should be ready to act fast and be ready to complete purchase within hours. The entire MLS has 6,141 homes for sale combining single family residential, condominium, and townhomes in every price range. Dollar volume of all sales in January 2016 was 8,444 billion, January 2017 it was 9,507 and December 2017 it was 11,261 billion.
2018, will continue with interest rates going up as our market gets stronger. Tax reform signed on January 2, 2018 suggests a possibility of migration from California to states with better taxation structure like Nevada. Our economy is definitely on the rise and interest rates will continue to climb. If you were thinking of purchasing the property now is still the right time. Make sure to get your finances right and look for a professional lender with extensive experience to get the best rates and service. All statistics are referenced from glvar.stats.showingtime.com

*The HPI is a broad measure of the movement of single-family house prices in the United States. The HPI is a weighted, repeat-sales index, meaning that it measures average price changes in repeat sales or refinancing on the same properties. This information is obtained by reviewing repeat mortgage transactions on single-family properties whose mortgages have been purchased or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac since January 1975.
