THE SCENT OF LOVE AN OUTDOOR SOIREE PALM DESERT GETAWAY THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS


Š2016 Porsche Cars North America, Inc. Porsche recommends seat belt usage and observance of all traffic laws at all times.

The status quo, lapped again. A near seven-decade disdain for the expected continues with the new Panamera. Redesigned inside and out, it breathes new life into classic Porsche design cues. More powerful, more advanced, and more luxuriously appointed, the new Panamera is not just a new car, but a new benchmark. Porsche. There is no substitute.

Language of Love

FEBRUARY 2017

L

ove is probably one of the most powerful words in our vocabulary - and the most powerful emotion! It is so broad - so all encompassing yet has so many meanings. Love for family, friends, your passions and interests, your soulmate and, of course, love for community.  

I'll never forget the first time I came to Del Mar and experienced our breathtaking coastline views, the relaxed community beach vibe...We are truly blessed to be able live, work and play here! To this day, I still experience that strong feeling soaking in a sunset or just walking along Powerhouse Park.  I am also loving the great growth in Carmel Valley with so many families that are proud to call the area home, world-class schools, great community-minded businesses and access to the best of San Diego in our backyard. Recently, while enjoying dinner with friends in town at The Brigantine, and one of my favorite local views, we got to talking about how we express love differently.  We had a very sparked and fun conversation on a book I read many years ago - The Five Love Languages. If you haven't read it or haven't done so in a while, I recommend it. Its power is in the simplicity of understanding how each of us expresses and receives love from others. The original book was intended for couples but since it was published, there have been many offshoots and the concept does apply to other relationships across all areas of your life. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we can all share love and joy more freely with those that are most important to us in our lives? What do you love about our community - share with us on social media...we'd LOVE to hear from you!

grance experience. This parfumerie is where scent meets science, and where the right blend of essential oils has the power to

conjure up powerful feelings of love, evoke cherished memories, and flood the mind with treasured experiences. It’s part high-tech science lab, part spa-quality pampering. Fragrance-making is a science, after all. But instead of plush robes, guests wear lab coats as trained “noses” (the industry’s term for olfactory experts) share their artistry and knowledge during the creative composition process. Using beakers as their brushes, and a perfume organ—brimming with more than 300 oils—as their palette, guests are free to mix and match until they create the perfect perfume or cologne. They even christen their scent with a personalized name, and each hand-crafted fragrance is presented in a personally labeled, 55 mL glass bottle, complete with a velvet keepsake pouch. Tijon offers several fragrance creation experiences, each of which can be fully customized based on individual tastes and preferences. Like a high-end cooking class or wine-tasting experience, guests can experiment for several hours, or let Tijon surprise them with a tailor-made scent. The choice is theirs! Here are a few of the more popular options: 24

Del Mar Lifestyle | February 2017


To celebrate their aromatic creations, guests conclude each session with a flute of fine champagne and a savory madeleine (as in authentic French cookies—no imitations). All fragrance recipes are safely stored in Tijon’s database and can be easily reordered. Love, after all, is meant to last forever! For those in search of other unique, fragrance-themed Valentine’s Day gifts, Tijon also offers a custom line of handcrafted products, including body lotions, scented candles, fragrance necklaces, perfume atomizer writing pens, scented drawer liners and more. Gifts may be purchased online or in the boutique during normal business hours. “At Tijon, we are all about the experience,” says Jovan Van Drielle, President & CEO. “We celebrate the uniqueness of every client, creating an experience as distinctive and special as they are.” Tijon.com •

FRAGRANCE IN A FLASH: Tijon’s “noses” interview you, analyze

your scent preferences and body chemistry, and create a custom scent in less than an hour. (Available Monday – Friday, walk-ins welcome—no lab coats required; $75 per person) •

MIX & MATCH CLASS: Don a lab coat and break out the beakers.

No experience required! Introductory 1.5-hour class offers three opportunities to mix and match oils to create the perfect perfume or cologne. Your favorite fragrance will go home with you— though you may decide you love them all. (Available Monday – Friday, reservations highly recommended; $125 per person) •

FRAGRANCE 101 CLASS: This 2.5-hour class allows you to dive

more deeply into the art of fragrance creation. Session includes an unlimited number of beakers with ample opportunity to experiment. (Available Monday – Friday, reservations required; $195 per person) •

PRIVATE PARTIES: Are you looking to celebrate an engagement

or host a bridal shower? Custom “his and her” fragrances make extra-special wedding favors. Birthdays, corporate team-building events, and even children’s parties can also be arranged. (Call for more information and availability)

This award winning San Diego-based full service home remodeling company specializes in these services and has perfected the remodeling process to ensure clients receive the highest quality service from beginning to end. ARTICLE RUKSANA HUSSAIN

No contention then that Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling has been voted Best Home Remodeler, Best Contractor, Best Kitchen and Bath Remodeler and Best Local Construction Company by the San Diego Union Tribune from 2010 to 2014, and once again honored as ‘San Diego’s Best’ by Union Tribune Best reader’s poll in 2016! That’s thousands of satisfied customers in San Diego since Sergei and Elena Kaminskiy established the company in March 2005. Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling is founded on a commitment to exceptional craftsmanship. They implement the latest design trends, assure project completion on time and on budget, and their professional designers work with you every step of the way. Here, clients are guaranteed upfront, honest and detailed contracts and a state-of-the-art Client Management System that allows you to sign in and view your weekly schedule, project files, material lists and tasks for the entire design team. “Our team is everything! We consider each other family and we also treat our clients as family,” says Operations Manager Kimberly Villa. “We aren’t the biggest remodeling firm in San Diego. We don’t want to be. We want to stay small enough that we can continue to give our clients the time and attention they deserve and expect when choosing to work with a boutique design build firm, as well as be able to focus on each employee’s personal and professional growth. So our goal isn’t to be the biggest, just the best!” Staff here walks you through every phase of your remodeling project.

other San Diego home remodeling companies. This includes in-home consultation, design, design and build presentation, shopping trips, plans and permits, starting the remodel, project in construction, and completion of remodel. The company is also heavily involved in the local community and supports several organizations through the year. Staff regularly donates materials to Habitat for Humanity and Rebuilding Together. In September 2016, they were site captains of the San Elijo State Beach clean up site for ‘I Love a Clean San Diego”. They were also overall financial sponsors of the countrywide event. During the holiday season, they collected gifts for Promises2Kids. Staff, friends, office neighbors all donated toys and other gifts that were then distributed to foster children throughout San Diego. Sergei and Elena have a 501 (c)(3) that operates completely separate from Kaminskiy Design and Remodeling. As Sergei explains, “There are things we do as a company to help others, but I need to have my own personal charitable work. It keeps me grounded and humble.” KaminskiyHomeRemodeling.com

T

he language of flowers or floriography has been practiced for ages and recognized throughout different cultures in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. However, during the Victorian era, flowers were often used to send clandestine messages to their recipient. This veiled language allowed feelings to be expressed without uttering words. 

Lisianthus Delicate and dainty, this flower can be mistaken for a tulip or poppy and certain varieties resemble roses and peonies. The lisianthus is a flower of appreciation and admiration but can also be given to represent charisma and gratitude.

Iris

Found both in floral shops and in gardens, the iris is the national flower of France and its likeness is signified in the fluer de lis symbol. Generally revered as a regal flower, it also has connotations of faith, wisdom and hope.

Gerbera Daisy Whimsical and happy are two words to describe this flower since they come in many colors, mostly cheerful and bright. The ideal flower for children, young adults and also the young-at-heart, the gerbera daisy symbolizes purity and innocence.

Water & Woods (CON TI N U ED)

Ranunculus Simultaneously whimsical and romantic because of the delicate layers of petals, each stem displays multiple blossoms. This flower has found a current popularity with bridal bouquets and is the flower of choice to give to someone you believe is charming.

Tulip Elegant and elusive because of the short period that they are available, tulips have different meanings based on the hue of their petals. Feeling the need to apologize? The white tulip is the perfect way to ask for forgiveness.

Rose

Popularized by poets, most notably Shakespeare, the exquisite rose is both delicate and resilient, but always timeless with classic appeal. Perhaps this is because of the many colors and varieties, each with their own meaning. Both graceful and elegant, the pink rose can be given to represent a burgeoning love.

There are Many Ways to Use HECMs The financial benefits of HECMs and the resulting tax-free proceeds are plentiful. You can use a portion of the loan to pay off an existing mortgage and increase your monthly cash flow. You can also supplement your monthly income for a set number of years or for as long as you live in your home. You can also use your HECM to purchase a new home without monthly payments and add additional cash to your savings.

ASK THE EXPERT:

5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

02 03 04 05

WHEN CONSIDERING A REVERSE MORTGAGE

It is now an ideal time to obtain an Home Equity Conversion Mortgage as current mortgage interest rates are remarkably low. This credit line continues to grow every year, which significantly increases your future borrowing power.

R

everse mortgage loans, also known as Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECMs), are not just for those who didn’t sufficiently

plan for retirement. In fact, it is wise to take out a reverse mortgage if you are at least 62-years-old, especially if you don’t necessarily need the money. William (Bill) Smith, Sr., a Reverse Mortgage Specialist and General Manager of Reverse Mortgage West, a California reverse mortgage broker, shares five HECM facts you need to know:

There is Never a Better Time Than Now Initial set-up fees for reverse mortgage loans have dropped considerably since 2011. It is now an ideal time to obtain an HECM as current mortgage interest rates are remarkably low. The lower the rates, the more you can borrow against your home equity. However, interest rates are never stagnant. If they rise in 5-10 years, you won’t be able to borrow nearly as much on your home.

HECM Benefits Any Retiree You can borrow as early as age 62 and take the mortgage in the form of a credit line rather than all-out cash. You can also borrow against the credit line at any time but you don’t have to take the money now. More importantly, this credit line continues to grow every year, which significantly increases your future borrowing power.

It is Not Like Your Typical Loan With HECMs, you don’t have to make monthly payments like you would with a regular loan. The mortgage doesn’t come due until you leave your home permanently. When the house is finally sold, the proceeds first go toward repaying what you borrowed and the accumulated interest. Money that is left over goes directly to you or your heirs. If the house sells for less than the loan amount, the Federal Housing Administration, which insures HECMs, covers the lender’s loss.

HECMs Provide Protection HECMs enable you to provide for unfunded long-term care by setting up a reverse mortgage line of credit. Additionally, the 2013 Reverse Mortgage Stabilization Act enables the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to assess whether potential borrowers are financially eligible or not. This prevents you from using too much equity prematurely and allows spouses under the age of 62 to stay in the house on the occasion of their partner’s passing. WSmithReverse.com  42

couples see eye-to-eye on how to secure their family’s current and future financial needs.

n Valentine’s Day, most men think their wives want flowers, chocolate and romance. Well, of course they do – especially the

chocolate! But women also desire intimacy with their partners…and Marriage is not only a sexual and emotional commitment, but also a financial one. Conflicts over money can make couples feel resentful, angry or ashamed, which pushes them apart. Discussing and resolving money issues can increase the level of trust and intimacy in a relationship. When you and your partner can have open, honest, and un-judged discussions about your financial beliefs, fears, behaviors, and goals, you have achieved financial intimacy. Here are three signs that indicate a lack of financial intimacy in your marriage:

1.

KEEPING SECRETS. Do you buy clothes or electronics and

hide them from your partner or lie about the cost because you want to avoid an argument? 2.

CONTROLLING FINANCES. Do you openly discuss and share

equally in the responsibility and accountability for most decisions on how money is earned, saved and spent? 3.

PLANNING FOR THE UNEXPECTED. Have you discussed with

your spouse what would happen if one of you lost a job? How would you adapt spending habits to address loss of income?

If you or your spouse feels left in the dark answering these ques-

In a 2015 survey of married couples, Fidelity Investments found that 43 percent didn’t know how much their partner makes annually. When asked how much they will need to save to maintain their current lifestyle in retirement, nearly half of the couples said they have “no idea”, and 47 percent were in disagreement about the

Legendary playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America) displays his brilliance in this wildly inventive tour de force, which celebrates the magic and illusory nature of theatre. Using crackling, contemporary language and sheer artistry, Kushner creates his most joyfully theatrical play: a wildly entertaining tale of passion, regret, love and magic.
