PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Dear Readers, Hope, love and gratitude have the power to bring us back to some semblance of normality in our lives, and that power lies within our hearts. It seems we are over the hill with this devastating pandemic that has taken so many… We can begin to transform this broken world around us by nurturing a spirit of positivity and thankfulness within ourselves and the first step is simply realizing the everyday joys of life, eg., laughter, a smile, show of kindness to someone you don’t even know… Even with rising prices everywhere, it shall come down again. We just need to hold on, reach out and help our neighbors that are less fortunate and we can weather any storm that may come. In the midst of the struggles and uncertainty, there is hope in knowing that we are still here and that we are in this together. In the most critical of times, there is still love and happiness, and, we shall overcome. The art of Excellence and the Essence of Luxury consists of creating an immersive and irreplaceable luxury experience, to getaway from the humdrum of life and into a dreamlike existence. This is what we present to you with each and every issue of Style Magazines. As we continue to live life in this year of challenges, I encourage you who are so blessed to be able to afford the luxury lifestyle to take a moment to cultivate a heart of gratitude. What a gift to enjoy the beautiful things in life, such as purchasing luxury real estate in prime areas, or having almost everything you desire delivered right to your front door. Most of all, the lifestyle of luxury offers us the opportunity to use our resources to help those in need. In a world where many are not as fortunate as us, the ability to donate to charities, provide for others, and even lend a helping hand is a true blessing. Yes, there is still so much life that is just waiting to be enjoyed. May we all get back to our senses, find gratefulness and see that we will always be better off when we decide to come together and to act as one community, one nation! Together, let’s embrace hope, live in love, and grow in gratitude. Have a blessed and unforgettable summer!

CITY NEWS

By Riesa Pascal Break out your sunglasses and sunscreen because summertime is upon us! But before you put this magazine down and jump in that refreshing pool, be sure you check out some of Orlando’s best events throughout the month of June. Here are the highlights, just in case you missed it! When the sun goes down, the night fires up at SeaWorld’s Electric Ocean. Park guests are staying late all summer to immerse themselves in exotic worlds of light and music and experience their favorite SeaWorld attractions in a whole new way. The fun continues for select days until September 5th, giving us all an opportunity to join playful, glowing sea creatures and worldclass DJs for a family-friendly dance party beneath the waves. Attendees end the night with the all-new Ignite 360, a fireworks and fountains spectacular that brings the brilliance of the sea to the sky above. Bite30 returned to Orlando last month to highlight the best local restaurants and chefs driving Central Florida’s culinary scene! During the month of June, participating restaurants offered special prix fixe menus that offered multi-course dinners at a set price of $33. Diners got the opportunity to try multiple dishes on the restaurant’s menu for about the cost of a single entree, and restaurants got to showcase their specialty dishes to the new customers attracted by their Bite30 menu. Bite30 ends on July 10th so don’t forget to take advantage of this opportunity to restauranthop through the City Beautiful, experience delicious food, service and ambiance of the restaurants you really should know about. On June 16th, Arts Fellowship Orlando, the newest arm of The Collaborative Orlando, invited visitors to join them at Dr. Phillips Center for And It Was Good: Showcase Gallery for Arts Fellowship Orlando. Attendees experienced a night of inspiration as they journeyed through the intersection of art and faith as a diverse 2022 cohort (singer/songwriter, creative writer, visual artist, classical composer, and carpenter) presented the original works they’ve cultivated over the course of their fellowship. In addition, guest appearances were made by celebrated Orlando Poet Laureate Shawn Welcome, Orlando’s premier choreographer Dawn Branch, award-winning filmmaker James Spradlin and Broadway veterans Stephen and Juliette Trafton. The inaugural showcase was a full evening of unconventional expressions of faith that equally excited and inspired all in attendance.

On June 23rd at The Abbey, Orlando had the opportunity to experience one of the largest pop-up live music & arts movements to hit North America over the past decade. Of course I’m talking about the Pancakes & Booze Art Show celebrating their 10th year of serving free pancakes and introducing attendees to some of the nation’s leading emerging talents! The LA based event originated in 2009 and has since popped up more than 500 times in 35+ cities around Europe & North America. It was an innovative reimagining of the art show concept. A welcoming vibe for up-and-coming artists and musicians to strut their stuff in a free verse, anything goes environment. Batter sizzled, beer foamed and painted canvases lined the walls from floor to ceiling as more than 75 local artists strutted their stuff at Orlando’s decidedly unstuffy, no-wineand-cheese, no-pretentions Underground Pop-Up Art Show. On June 25th, visitors to Central Florida Zoo experienced the sights and sounds of the Zoo at night during an exciting nocturnal adventure: Night Hike at the Zoo! The evening began in the Discovery Center with up-close animal encounters. Fascinating nightlife came to light as attendees ventured into the Zoo for a guided flashlight tour and explored the Zoo after hours and after dark. The unique, late-night program was ideal for families and proved to be a hit with the attendees. From June 25th-June 26th, Harry Potter enthusiasts had two opportunities to experience their favorite movie transformed with the music of a live symphony orchestra in the Harry Potter™ Film Concert Series. For the first time ever, audiences could rediscover the magic of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix™ while the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra performed Nicholas Hooper’s unforgettable score and Harry Potter™ soared across the big screen of the Walt Disney Theater at Dr. Phillips Center in highdefinition. It was a whole new way to experience the film—as year five begins with new faces, old foes and the biggest battle yet. From the creator of Sofas & Suds comes the next form of a device racing and drink chasing event. The first annual Sanford Karts & Kegs debuted on June 26th and was an all-day celebration of Sanfords Golf Cart culture combined with its Craft Beer love affair. It was a blast for spectators and participants alike as teams representing local businesses competed for glory in two different categories. Naturally, some opted to conquer the skills challenge/ obstacle course for the win while others went for the crown of “Crowd Favorite.” No matter where they placed, fun was had by all!

YOUR SCALP NEEDS LOVE TOO We all hear about exfoliating your face and body, but what about your scalp? Taking care of your hair and taking care of your scalp are two different things. The skin on your scalp is just like the skin on any other part of your body, so just like any solid skin care routine, that means exfoliating regularly. Keeping the scalp incredibly clean is going to help the hair you have now, it’s going to help the hair grow thicker and fuller, and most importantly it’s going to help that future hair grow thicker and fuller. A clean scalp is one of the most important things you can do to ensure you have healthy growing hair.

PROTECT YOUR FACE FROM FLORIDA’S

SUN You thought you knew, but you really don’t!

Putting on sunscreens seems to be a no brainer. We live in Florida and July and August are the hottest months of the year and a lot us surprisingly don’t use sunscreen. Or,if we are, we aren’t using as much as we should.

It may seem “extra” but it has to be done if you want to protect the sensitive skin on our face. First, you want to put the skin-nourishing creams/ingredients. After is when you go in with the SPF, and lastly, your makeup.

If we want to preserve the health and youth of our skin we need to be applying sunscreen daily (not just on the beach). But specifically, on our face. That’s the money maker after all right?

Final thing to remember, when it comes to sunscreen, the SPF factors are not additive. If you’re wearing an SPF of 30 on top of makeup with SPF 30, you’re not wearing SPF 60. So look at whichever product has the highest SPF, and go by that number for an accurate idea of how much protection you’re wearing.

For the ladies (and gents) “but what if I were make up, is that enough” It can be! If you use enough. According to Cybele Fishman, MD, a New York City-based dermatologist. “Liquid makeup can be as effective as regular SPF, if you put enough on,” she says. “Powder would need to be caked on thickly for it to provide as good of coverage, but most women wouldn’t want to put it on that heavily.” There are make up brands that have sunscreen mixed in the foundation. However foundation on its own, especially living in Florida isn’t enough to stay protected.

36

| STYLETOME.COM

For liquid, serums, and sprays, if you’re using a chemical sunscreen (one that has a filter like avobenzone, octocrylene, homosalate, or octinoxate), the order should be SPF, moisturizer, makeup. If you’re using a physical sunscreen (one that has a filter like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide) your order should be moisturizers, SPF, makeup. The amount of sunscreen should be about a quarter size dollop. Moral of the story, Don’t leave your house without applying your sunscreen!

HEALTH & BEAUTY

It is Summer in Orlando and the heat IS on (in more ways than one), and though we may be mid-way through the summer, we are at the peak of summer-time sunshine. Which means, it’s time to glow! But of course, in the best way possible with the right kind of protection under the sun! Which brings us to protecting the skin. Ultraviolet (UV) protection is key when protecting your skin from various forms of UV radiation linked to aging, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer. Dermatologists urge individuals, regardless of the amount exposed to UV rays, to shield their skin. It is recommended when shopping for sunscreen, to look for one that contains at least an SPF of 30. With so many options of sunscreen in the market, it can be overwhelming to decide, especially since the formulas vary. The two primary types being mineral vs. chemical SPF. The good news for you? We narrowed down some of our top picks so that you need not look further! Here’s our top summer choices of sunscreen, keeping in mind everything from ingredients to an overall feel!

BEST FOR THE FACE: ELTAMD UV CLEAR BROAD-SPECTRUM SPF 46 | CATEGORY: MINERAL This gentle yet strong oil-free vegan sunscreen is power-packed with niacinamide (vitamin B3), hyaluronic acid and lactic acid - all ingredients that are amazing for healthy-looking skin. In addition, it is super light and can be worn easily under makeup without feeling cakey or clogged. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, or suffer from hyperpigmentation and rosacea, this sunscreen is especially great for you! But overall, the key ingredients are beneficial for all skin types. Other active ingredients include: 9.0% Zinc Oxide, 7.5% Octinoxate. SUPERGOOP! UNSEEN SUNSCREEN SPF 40 | CATEGORY: CHEMICAL Another weightless pick is the Supergoop! Unseen which contains frankincense - a natural ingredient that helps strengthen your skin and provides simultaneous soothing, as well as a complex derived from meadowfoam seed.

Raspberry Seed Oil, Buriti Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, and Prickly Pear Extract), other ingredients include: Safflower Olesomes, and Neroli Flower Extract, which helps rebalance and hydrate the skin in a calming manner. Just like Supergoop’s Unseen, It also contains: Avobenzone 1.75%, Homosalate 5.0%, Octisalate 2.0%, Octocrylene 5.0% BARE REPUBLIC MINERAL SUNSCREEN GEL-LOTION SPF 30 BARE delivers on this fragrance-free vegan light-weight overall body sunscreen. The formula is free of parabens and non-GMO. Though the sunscreen is on the lighter side of SPF, it contains great ingredients such as rose oil and calendula oil which help to soothe the skin. The sunscreen is also rich in antioxidants containing raspberry, grape and carrot seed oils. Other primary active ingredient: Titanium Dioxide BEST FOR THE LIPS: SUN BUM MINERAL SPF 30 LIP BALM

This sunscreen goes on invisible with a velvety finish and is great for all skin types - however, if you are on oily end, this sunscreen is especially great for you! Other active ingredients include: Avobenzone, 3%, Homosalate 8%, Istusakate 5%, Octocrylene 4%.

You’ve probably heard of the name Sun Bum before, but if you haven’t tried their lip balm sunscreen, it may be time to consider. The best-seller balm includes soothing ingredients like Vitamin E and Shea Butter with the active ingredient being Zinc Oxide 8%.

BEST FOR THE BODY:

COOLA CLASSIC LIPLUX ORGANIC HYDRATING LIP OIL SUNSCREEN SPF 30

COOLA CLASSIC BODY ORGANIC SUNSCREEN LOTION SPF 50 Coola is no stranger to the skin game, and their sunscreen is no exception! This SPF 50 sunscreen is fragrance-free and formulated as a lightweight SPF protector that utilizes olesome technology to optimize efficacy. Key ingredients include their Plant Protection mix (Red

Coola has made it back on our list with this rich SPF lip oil! Not only does it provide sun protection, it adds a bit of shine too with key ingredients such as: Camellia and Jojoba oils and Vitamin E. The flower extracts work great together to provide lasting moisture. Other ingredients include: Avobenzone 3.0%, Homosalate 4.0%, Octisalate 4.0%, Octocrylene 10.0%.

ABOUT FACE GETTING THAT RUNWAY GLOW By Autumn Barker

With fall comes the end of hurricane season and the start of pumpkin spice lattes, football, and hopefully, sweater weather! After a long summer spent in the sun by the pool and/or beach, it’s time to give your skin a little attention. Time to put away that tanning oil and bring out the moisturizers!

| STYLETOME.COM


HEALTH & BEAUTY

The fall runways feature fresh, dewy complexions with minimal makeup, but after months in the Florida sun it may seem a bit daunting to step out with a naked face. These tried and true skin care tips are sure to give you a clean, glowing complexion even Cate Blanchett would be proud of. As you begin switching up your closet and pulling out your fall wardrobe, you should also be switching up your skincare routine. While summertime requires astringent based facial cleansers to keep pores clear of the oil and sweat that the Florida heat and humidity is sure to bring out, your fall cleanser should be more moisturizing. Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser, Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea, and Fresh Soy Face Cleanser are great face washes that will thoroughly cleanse you without stripping your skin of essential moisture.

Many people leave exfoliating out of their skincare routine, but it is a key factor to achieving that enviable runway glow. Chances are that the summer spent outdoors and in the sun has left your skin feeling rough and looking dull due to the buildup of dead skin cells and clogged pores. Exfoliating several times a week will remove any dead skin and keep skin feeling soft and looking radiant. Be sure to be gentle when exfoliating – while exfoliating has many amazing benefits, it can also damage

After spending your time pampering your face, take a moment to show your lips a little TLC. While most of us are religious about our skincare regimens, we often neglect our lips. It’s important to use a lip scrub every couple of days to remove dead cells that cause chapping and keep lips soft and smooth. Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant and Lush Mint Julips are both made from natural ingredients and are sure to give you soft, kissable lips. Be sure to apply a rich lip balm, like Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment or Korres Lip Butter after exfoliating to lock in moisture and promote surface rejuvenation.

WITH TIME AND DEDICATION ON YOUR PART YOU TOO CAN HAVE RADIANT SKIN THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE GLOW OF A RUNWAY MODEL.

After a summer spent slathering on sunscreen, your pores are probably in need of some extra deep cleaning. Using a clay mask a few times a week will clear out clogged pores leaving skin feeling smoother and looking brighter. Try First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay or Tarte Amazonian Clay Double Detox Exfoliating Facial Mask for deep cleansing that will leave your skin feeling refreshed. If you prefer single-use masks, check out Sephora Collection’s line which offers eight different fiber masks made to target specific issues. The Sephora Collection Rose Mask is a great choice for fall because it is enriched with rose extract and provides intense moisture for dry and dull skin.

your skin cells if you scrub too harshly. Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish and Murad Pore Reform Skin Smoothing Polish are two products that will gently exfoliate without drying or irritating your skin. After exfoliating, apply a rich moisturizer to keep skin elastic and well hydrated. In the fall your skin needs more emollient creams to help it retain moisture and keep wrinkles at bay. Créme de la Mer original moisturizing cream and La Prairie Cellular Time Release Moisturizer are two rich moisturizers that will provide you with maximum moisture-retention to promote soft and luminous skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If you tend towards very dry skin try using Argan oil, which is packed full of vitamin E and essentially fatty acids that nourish and hydrate skin. Josie Maran offers several products made from 100 percent pure Argan oil that are ideal for both your face and body.

Finally, don’t forget your sunscreen. Even if it’s cloudy out the sun’s rays can still burn your skin. Protecting your skin will help prevent skin cancer, dark spots, wrinkles, and is the most important step in your skincare routine. Fortunately, there are some great products, like Fresh Peony Brightening UV Shield SPF 50+ and Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisture SPF 47, that will provide you with sun protection without a greasy finish. Unfortunately, there’s no quick and easy way to immediately have luminous skin. But with a bit of time and dedication on your part you too can have radiant skin that will give you the glow of a runway model.

CELEBRITIES WHO CHOOSE TO LIVE A

FRUGAL LIFE Not every famous person feels the need to flaunt their extraordinary wealth. By Riesa Pascal

CELEBRITY SOUP

While boasting a lavish lifestyle has become almost synonymous with being a celebrity in Hollywood, there are some stars who prefer to go against the grain and instead choose to live a more modest and humble life. From extreme money management to shameless coupon cutting, here are several frugal celebs who you aren’t queuing up to flaunt their excess on “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.”

SARAH JESSICA PARKER She may love high-end fashion and shop like a millionaire on the big screen, but Sarah Jessica Parker incredibly still dresses her children in hand-me-downs. Despite her net worth of $150 million, Parker has been vocal over the years about wanting to ensure that her three children don’t grow up spoiled or feeling entitled to her wealth. As a result, she’s been more than happy to recycle hand-me-downs from their older cousins and put them to good use in her little ones' wardrobes. JAY LENO After Jay Leno became the host of NBC's The Tonight Show in 1992, he decided that he would never touch his salary of $15 million annually. Throughout his career, Jay instead chose to live off his stand-up income of $10 million per year and put his other earnings into savings. It’s also worth noting that his peak The Tonight Show salary was $30 million per year, but Leno agreed to a 50% pay cut to help his staff get raises and keep their jobs—talk about a standup guy! SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR When it comes to saving dollars, coupons can be an absolute lifesaver and apparently Sarah Michelle Gellar would agree! Her net worth is around $20 million, but being a millionaire hasn’t made her too proud to clip coupons which add up to big savings over time. In order to avoid paying more bucks for her everyday purchases, Gellar will often use coupons at the grocery store or even the department store during her shopping trips. PAUL MCCARTNEY Just because you are loaded doesn’t mean you have an obligation to share that wealth with others! Even though he is one of the most famous rock stars of all time, Paul McCartney is well-known for his humble and frugal ways. Case in point? Despite his net worth of $1.2 billion, The Beatles frontman has no shame in asking guests to pay for their own drinks at a party. The frugality doesn’t end at just his friends either. His own daughter Stella had to buy clothes from second-hand shops as a child and even paid her own way through school. KRISTEN BELL Who’s to say you have to change your fashion tastes just because your income increases? After a successful Broadway career and an acclaimed role in Disney’s highest earning animated movie of all time, Kristen Bell has amassed a net worth of $40 million. Needless to say, the Frozen star could afford to wear any designer she wants on the red carpet, but she is surprisingly well-known for being a much more budget conscious shopper than her celebrity peers. For one event, Bell even donned a $45 dress from Target and she certainly didn’t have to sacrifice style for budget in order to do so! VINCENT KARTHEISER With a net worth of $6 million, you may be surprised to learn that Mad Men star Vincent Kartheiser lives an extremely modest lifestyle. Rather than invest his wealth into swanky sports cars, Kartheiser is a devoted bus and train user who prefers to take public transit everywhere. If that wasn’t impressive enough, get a load of this— Kartheiser also lives in a one-bedroom apartment in Hollywood and frequently donates gently used goods to charities as a way to recycle and give back. TYRA BANKS Even though she has a net worth of $90 million, Tyra Banks is the queen of penny pinching and has never been shy about doing so! From keeping the free shampoo and soaps left in her fancy hotel rooms to making DIY oil blotters from disposable toilet seat protectors, Banks is notorious for her frugality and speaks openly about her clever tips for how to stretch a dollar.

timeless expressions of good taste, beauty and luxurious perfection.

Rolls-Royce products enjoy an expansive lifetime, ultimately becoming timeless expressions of good taste, beauty and luxurious perfection. Phantom occupies a unique, pinnacle position in this regard, being revered for its timeless elegance. The eighth-generation of Phantom was presented in 2017. In creating the new expression, RollsRoyce designers and engineers have been guided by the requests of clients, who have implored Rolls-Royce not to make any major changes to an already iconic motor car. In answer to these client demands, only the lightest of design touches, embellishments, and adaptations have been incorporated. Indeed, it is not about what should be changed, but in fact, what should be preserved and protected. The most obvious and important feature to be retained is Phantom’s commanding presence. This has been further enhanced by a new polished horizontal line between the daytime running lights above the Pantheon Grille. This gives Phantom a new and assertive modernity, reflecting its driver-focused character. A subtle geometric change to the Pantheon Grille makes the ‘RR’ Badge of Honour and Spirit of Ecstasy mascot more prominent when viewed from the front. The grille itself is now illuminated, a feature debuted and popularised in Ghost. The headlights are graced with intricate laser-cut bezel starlights, creating a visual connection with the Starlight Headliner inside, and adding further surprise and delight to Phantom’s night-time presence. Phantom’s side profile retains Rolls-Royce’s signature short front and long rear overhang, long wheelbase and broad c-pillar, the latter giving greater privacy for occupants. The silhouette preserves the elegant key lines running from the Spirit of Ecstasy to the tapering rear tail. The ‘split-belt’ line begins at the front fender and curves gently towards the rear door, emphasising the car’s long dashto-axle proportions, before falling gently towards the lantern-like rear lamps. The heavily undercut ‘waft line’ creates a strong shadow, visually signalling the marque’s unequalled ‘Magic Carpet Ride’. The side profile is further enhanced with a suite of new wheels. A 3D, milled, stainless steel wheel with triangular facets is available to commission in a fully or part-polished finish. Alternatively, Phantom may be graced with a truly elegant disc wheel, recalling the romance of 1920’s Rolls-Royce

motor cars. This disc wheel is produced in both polished stainless steel and black lacquer, perfectly encapsulating the sense of flight on land. Responding to Phantom clients who have previously requested a darkened chrome grille surround, black bonnet reins, windscreen surround and side frame finishers, these may now be commissioned. This aesthetic now enables Rolls-Royce to transform Phantom into the lightest of light or the darkest of dark appearances. Phantom’s sumptuous interior remains almost unaltered: the steering wheel has been made slightly thicker, providing a more connected and immediate point of contact for the owner-driver. Phantom and Phantom Extended have distinct characters of their own, representing two different seats of power. Phantom is now predominantly favoured by the ever-increasing number of clients wishing to be in the driving seat themselves. For those preferring to command the road from the rear seat, Phantom Extended offers the definitive super-luxurious chauffeur-driven experience. Now, Phantom includes the debut of ‘Rolls-Royce Connected’. This enables the owner to send an address directly to the motor car from Whispers, the RollsRoyce private-members’ Application, providing seamless navigation to an event, restaurant, dealership or even the Home of Rolls-Royce itself. ‘Rolls-Royce Connected’ also displays the motor car’s location, security status and current ‘health’ condition on Whispers; at the touch of a button, the owner can contact a preferred dealership for any servicing requirements or information about the car. As the marque’s pinnacle product, Phantom attracts an elite stratum of

Rolls-Royce clients. Established and successful, at the top of their field and often in the public eye, these are determined and demanding people. It is no coincidence that Phantom attracts the most ambitious and challenging Bespoke commissions ever undertaken by Rolls-Royce. The resulting creations − each an artistic masterpiece in its own right − illustrate a broader truth: since its inception, Phantom has always been whatever the client wants it to be; not only the ‘best car in the world’, but the best car for them and their world. Self-evidently, there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Phantom client. Spanning the ‘poles of luxury’, they may be everyounger or older, modern or traditional, self-made or from long-established wealth. Their commissions reflect a full spectrum of interests and influences. At one extreme, Phantom takes on a subversive, almost rebellious character – youthful, dynamic and daring. At the other, Phantom transforms into an ode to luxury grandeur and timelessness. The challenge of the RollsRoyce Bespoke Collective is to accommodate this vast expanse of client characteristics and desires in one pinnacle product. The eighthgeneration Phantom has thus been deliberately designed to offer a ‘blank canvas’ for Bespoke personalisation, capable of becoming whatever the client wishes it to be, and a true reflection of their individual style and character. Phantom’s great strength and appeal is that it allows clients to position themselves anywhere between these ‘poles of luxury’, defining luxury on their own terms. And wherever that point happens to lie, they have the assurance that Phantom itself is − technically, materially, aesthetically and dynamically − still the ‘best car in the world’.

A HEALTHY WAY OF EATING Supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), DASH ranks high on nutritious plans lists. Its acronym stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. Although the diet’s primary aim is to lower blood pressure and to improve blood lipid levels, DASH can have a positive effect on your waistline too. Unlike other diets that promise miracles and place restrictions on important food groups, DASH focuses on limiting daily sodium intake and adding more whole grains, fresh fruit and veggies to your plate. Six or fewer servings per day of lean meats are also allowed. In other words, you cut out the junk: Avoid processed foods (which are loaded with sodium) and limit refined sugars and saturated fats. Coronary heart disease and stroke are two of the leading causes of mortality in the United States. A typical American diet consists of 3,300 milligrams of sodium per day, and according to Harvard’s School of Public Health, 75 percent of the sodium comes from processed foods. Why is high salt intake so dangerous? Diets high in sodium increase blood pressure, which strains your heart. Eventually this can damage your blood vessels and organs. According to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, individuals who consume large amounts of sodium, and low amounts of potassium, have a higher risk of dying from a heart attack. But the good news is that by changing your dietary habits you can minimize your risk! DASH is a healthy way of eating because the plan is rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and protein. Moreover, DASH research showed that a diet plan containing 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day lowered blood pressure. And a plan containing only 1,500 mg had an even greater effect. So, who should try DASH? Individuals who have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease, African Americans, and adults aged 51 and older. According to the Mayo Clinic, the diet “is also in line with dietary recommendations to prevent osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.”

individuals. This is why it is highly recommended that you gradually increase your intake of fiber-rich foods. You should also chat with your physician about what sodium level is right for you. And, if your main goal is to lose weight quickly, aim for 1,600 calories per day. Of course, a healthy weight-loss plan should include exercise too. In a 2010 study, overweight participants with high blood pressure who exercised and followed the DASH diet plan, lost on average 19 pounds in 4 months. As always, consult with your physician about the right type of exercise for you and your goals. For more information on the DASH Diet Weight Loss Solution, visit dashdiet.org

DASH IS A HEALTHY WAY OF EATING BECAUSE THE PLAN IS RICH IN POTASSIUM, CALCIUM, MAGNESIUM, FIBER, AND PROTEIN.

What about shedding those extra pounds? Well, it’s no secret that eating more veggies (while avoiding saturated fats and refined sugars) can help you maintain a healthy weight. Nutrition expert Marla Heller, MS, RD, used the DASH research to develop a weight-loss plan that promises better health. During phase one, you cut out whole grains and fruit. During this 2-week, “low-carb transition phase,” you will immediately notice effects on the waistline. In the second phase you reintroduce fruit, starchy veggies, and whole grains into your diet. Take note that the DASH plan has more daily servings of fiber that can cause gastrointestinal discomfort in some

The Paloma is a refreshing, easy-to-make drink that combines tequila, lime juice and grapefruit soda/juice. Its origin story is uncertain, but most reports say its creation is in the 1950s. Blanco tequila is the traditional choice, but lightly aged reposado also makes a fine drink. In this case, it’s best to keep the añejo capped, as the well-aged expression’s oaky profile disrupts that clean, refreshing taste you want in a Paloma. In Mexico, Jarritos soda is a popular choice for adding the effervescent grapefruit note. This brand is relatively easy to find stateside, particularly in grocery stores that stock Mexican foods and ingredients. However, as bartenders continue to embrace fresh juice in their cocktails, it has become increasingly common to use

fresh grapefruit juice in place of the grapefruit soda. If you want to go that route, you can complement the juice with unflavored sparkling water to achieve the necessary bubbly effect. This combination yields a similar cocktail, so it’s worth the experiment. But grapefruit soda is the more traditional choice when making Palomas. Some people may also choose to rim the glass with salt, while others add a pinch of salt straight into the glass. This step isn’t necessary, but it does add a savory quality that melds beautifully with the earthy tequila and tart grapefruit. And it opens the possibility of using a spiced salt, like Tajín, for an extra seasoning kick. Because the Paloma is constructed right in the glass, you don’t need any bar tools to make it. Just add your ingredients to a highball glass with ice, and you’re ready to enjoy a refreshing cocktail.

101 GLASSWARE

We all walk into the bar and usually order our regular cocktail without thinking twice. No matter what your elixir of choice is you know what you drink and what it tastes like. What if I told you the glass that holds your spirit preference makes a difference to your experience? Would that make you pay attention to what vessel you sip from the next time you are at your favorite watering hole? I promise you will appreciate your bartender who knows what glass to use even more the next time you belly up to the bar. Most of us have a go to cocktail when we go out to a bar or restaurant. No matter where you are in the world your cocktail should conform to the glass in your hand. Vodka and soda is your choice; a rocks glass is placed in front of you without a second thought from you. A mojito is served in a tall glass with a straw and the ever-present mint and lime mingling together among the ice. A snifter gets pulled out after a dinner party for cognac and the like. But have you ever wondered why? There is a method to the madness that we would usually overlook. Most bars will serve a cocktail or liquor in a few glasses that should be found in all bars universally. You have the all-purpose rocks glass aka Old Fashioned or double Old Fashioned glass. There is also the Collins glass, snifter, martini and the list goes on.

I want to focus on the glassware you find most often in the bar, the rocks glass. Whether you realize it or not this glass helps accentuate the flavors that make you cherish the drink that sits in front of you. A single liquor drink on the rocks, with muddled fruit, bitters or a mixer is the classic drink that ends up in this style of glass. A usually short and wide brim allows you to take in the aromas and flavors that are mixed within. This style of glass affects both your taste and your sense of smell in a positive way. It is my favorite glass because it serves as the bartenders’ multi-tool behind the bar. If you want your whiskey neat this is the glass I would use to highlight the flavor and style of the spirit. The size and shape allows the spirit to open up and reveal the magic and hard work that went into creating something meant to please. The Old Fashioned cocktail is proof that this type of glass is the perfect choice so much that it is usually called an Old Fashioned glass. The classic Old Fashioned features not only your favorite whiskey but the addition of bitters, sugar and finished with a cherry and orange slice. Take a sip of one of these and you understand why it earned the right to have its moniker attached to a style of glassware. The whiskey and bitters open up and meld nicely on that first taste while the cherry and orange tickle your nose like a fruit filled feather floating up from

the glass. If this was in a Collins glass, tall and thin, it would lose something without question. It might seem like a little thing but these little nuances add up to build a great cocktail experience. Cocktails that contain a single liquor and mixer on the rocks are most often found in this type of glass as well. The same reasoning applies as the wide style of the glass allows the liquid within to become a harmonious blend that pleases our senses and usually ends up in the classic saying, “Bartender, hit me again.” One of the trends that is a perfect fit for the rocks glass is a large sphere of ice usually surrounded by bourbon or scotch. This glass allows the igloo size chunk of ice to slowly melt and let the chosen liquor in the rocks glass be the star. I would be willing to bet that most of us do not even give it a second thought when it comes to which type of glass ends up in front of us or why. No matter how you prefer your cocktail be sure to know there was some thought in choosing the right glassware to fit the drink. There really is a reason behind the many shapes and sizes of the glassware that is awaiting the next cocktail behind the bar. Of those choices the rocks glass reigns supreme because of its versatility and ability to deliver and delight your senses in more ways than one.

ORLANDO’S ELITE DOCTORS 2022

In prefacing this introduction, we’d like to offer an observation, which should be of interest to all. Regardless of medical school class rankings, graduates are all referred to as “DOCTOR.” With this revelation, we should all know that when choosing a physician, one must accept responsibility for adequately researching the doctor he or she is considering. Within our present day society, most licensed to practice medicine are truly miracle workers whether they are completely restructuring someone’s face or saving a life. As much as we realize that every physician is an asset to our

community, we also know that some have established themselves at the top of their profession and are considered special; these are the ‘elite,’ the very best of the best. When seeking perfection, we search for the professional who has made it his or her life goal to excel within a field of specialization through many years of study, dedication and determination, continually challenging themselves to advance their knowledge; these brilliant human beings not only save lives but also enrich their communities with a skill set second to none. Beyond this and in order to stay abreast of the latest, almost daily changing

medical advancements, the ‘elite’ undergo rigorous maintenance, updating through seminars, conferences and advanced studies to keep current with new technology and procedures. In adding our ‘Orlando’s Elite Doctors’ section with this issue, we present a group of physicians, all of whom are reputable, Board Certified in their areas of expertise, extremely well recognized within our community and chosen by their peers. Our objective is to initiate a continuing dialogue with our readers, with an aim toward personalizing some of the finest doctors available.

This technology can allow for the removal of hopeless teeth with the simultaneous placement of dental implants (tooth root replacements).An artificial full set of teeth can be made and attached to the dental implants, which provides an instant and permanent hold that eliminates the risk of looseness or slipping associated with traditional dentures. Sometimes this entire procedure can be performed in just a single day! These implant-supported teeth are designed to look, feel and function just like regular teeth. Treating your gum disease, receding gums and replacing your missing teeth has never been easier! In their spare time the doctors enjoy cooking, working out, outdoor activities, and spending time together with their sons Matteo and Rio and their french bulldog Maurice.

Ly T Nguyen, MD Eye Florida, Board-Certified Ophthalmologist

Photo by Kimberly Jefcoat

Patients who visit Dr. Ly Nguyen’s office say she is a wonderful doctor; some say she is one of the most skilled ophthalmologists serving the Kissimmee and Saint Cloud communities. Her eyes beam with gratitude when her patients tell her that she is a caring person who takes the time to listen and get to know them personally. Dr Nguyen says “I have seen tens of thousands of cases but each patient’s life story is unique, and I can still remember the details of most of my patients.” Looking back on her life, many signs point to her path in the field of ophthalmology. Growing up in the countryside in Vietnam, she developed night blindness due to malnutrition. While she was still in college at Brown University, her father developed cataracts at an earlier age due to the harsh sun as a longline fisherman. These personal experiences shape Dr. Nguyen’s passion and mission in helping her patients see better. As a board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Nguyen specializes in cataract, oculoplastic, and minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery. Her residency training at the University of Hawai’i School of Medicine and Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute at the University of Colorado has allowed Dr. Nguyen to bring her surgical expertise and aloha spirit to her private practice, Eye Florida. Her practice’s number one goal is on delivering exceptional personalized eye care for the whole family. When she is not operating or running her private practice, she is dedicated to giving back to her community. She contributes as Chief of Surgery at Orlando Health St. Cloud Hospital and as a previous member of the Board of Trustee for St. Cloud Regional Medical Center. She is a co-founding member of the An Bang Professional, a non-profit organization committed to providing financial assistance to promising high school graduates and underserved communities in the United States and aboard. She believes in sharing her time and knowledge to aspire the next generation of young professionals including medical students at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine. Many of her mentees have been selected to present research findings at prestigious academic conferences and some have gone on to pursue careers in medical research and ophthalmology. Dr. Nguyen’s one lifelong goal is to write a memoir about her family’s escape from Vietnam in the 1980s and their journey through Hong Kong’s refugee camp. “These memories are stories of where we came from. These are important lessons of hope, determination, success and giving back.” Reflecting on her life’s journey so far, she shares the words of Nelson Mandela: “There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
