Louis Vuitton

Re-Opening Celebration

> A night of class, style, and entertainment are only a few words to describe the Louis Vuitton re-opening cocktail reception held at the upscale and lavish Mall at Millenia, in Orlando. Located on the 2nd floor next to Neiman Marcus, and previously undergoing a renovation for expansion has undeniably resulted in a Louis Vuitton utopia, where just about any of its desirable products can be found. Excitement filled the air at the start of the evening as the VIP’s entered through the doors of the newly expanded Louis Vuitton store, which now spans from 3,511 to 5,040 square feet of pure bliss. The re-opening event brought together hundreds of guests who share the same niche for French fashion, BETA, and the Orlando Magic. NBA superstars, Dwight Howard, Matt Barnes and Vince Carter made guest appearances to benefit Orlando’s BETA center, a private nonprofit organization to provide children and parents with the knowledge and support needed for strong and healthy families.

The energetic staff prepared for the evening, serving light, appetizing hors d’oeuvres with crisp Champagne and refreshing white wine. It wasn’t long before the crowds of people filled the newly spacious store, browsing through the shelves of the season’s exquisite collection of shoes, handbags, and jewelry. As the DJ blared his upbeat tunes to set the mood for purchasing frenzy and mingling, the crowd didn’t waste any time before making their way to the register. For women, the store has a display of beautifully designed hats, gloves, and shoes from stylish pumps to metallic leather sandals, travel luggage and of course–handbags! Men also have a selection of wallets, watches, and loafers from calf to patent leather. With all the finest products, it’s no surprise that Louis Vuitton has been a worldwide leader in ‘luxury’ since 1854. Engaging in a little shopping themselves, the Orlando Magic stars freely meandered through the store picking out shoes and

watches to purchase while taking the time to interact with their fans. Showing their utmost concern in the benefit to BETA, Dwight Howard and Matt Barnes did their part in contributing to the organization and the publicity of the re-opening of the newly expanded Louis Vuitton store. While women stood at the glass counters picking out handbags to purchase and trying on sunglasses the men gathered around the Magic players to exchange a few words and share a few laughs. There is no question as to why this event turned out to be a great success. It is without a doubt that everyone left with a smile on his or her face and a warm heart as the guests thoroughly enjoyed the world of designer luxury for a good cause. The expansion of Louis Vuitton will be benefiting to the consumers who appreciate designer fashion, luxury travel, and all the elegance that Louis Vuitton holds in every single product.<

Realtor of the Month

Toni Parks, Realtor Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Toni is an Orlando native who has lived here all her life, and remembers when Orlando only had 3 apartment complexes and many dirt roads. She has fond memories of her graduation party at the Angebilt hotel. She started in real estate 22 years ago, with luxury homes being her area of expertise. Her success has earned her special international designation from The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and the Million Dollar Guild, which recognizes achievement in the upper tier residential market. With the Institute’s marketing partners, she has access to global websites, distinctive marketing tools, a variety of premier publications, as well as a network of real estate professionals to whom she can promote your property. She believes that exceptional properties call for exceptional efforts. Unlike some agents who are only concerned with the next sale, Toni supports her clients long after the transaction has closed. “They feel free to call me when they are looking for that special restaurant, a new wealth manager, a summer camp for the kids. If I don’t have an answer I’ll find it.”

Toni Parks,Realtor, CDPE, ILHM, Million Dollar Guild Realty Executives Seminole

She feels that each home has a personality that will fit a certain person, and she loves to make that match. However, she wants that home to also be the best investment possible. “It is my job to educate the buyer about the area they are interested in as to direction this neighborhood is heading so their investment is as secure as possible in this economy. I have put a team together, my mortgage broker, my 1031 exchange expert and title company, that I am confident give 5 star service to all my clients. I select only the best vendors to serve my clients.”

Despite all the negatives, residential real estate markets in most major cities and municipalities are beginning to thrive once again.

styletome.com

â&#x20AC;?


Real Estate

> It seems like the time is right to get back into the residential real estate market, and it sure helps if you have some cash to put down and have a job with steady income. There’s a statistic out there that talks about Florida being one of the top five states having the best chance of experiencing economic recovery (the others being Utah, Colorado, Arizona and South Dakota). Our economic recovery prospects are becoming stronger than they have been in the past couple of years. Duly noted, we see lots of former homeowners who have lost their homes thru short sales and foreclosure, moving back in with family members in order to gain shelter. Looking at it in a positive perspective – if there is one – is the indirect re-emergence of family unity, which perhaps is what our country needs to get back on the right path.

Despite all the negatives, residential real estate markets in most major cities and municipalities are beginning to thrive once again. First, we had the Home Buyer Tax Credit, which although since expired, was responsible for thousands who were on the cusp of qualifying for mortgages to bridge the requirement gap and purchase their ‘dream’ home or to buy a house of their own. The approximately one million recipients of the tax credit not only allowed participants to put some money back into the housing market, but at the same time helped stabilize home prices, keeping others from going ‘underwater’ on their mortgages and possibly into foreclosure. The next boost to home sales came from investors with plenty of money, who ‘swooped’ down and grabbed (and continue to do so) properties for a fraction of their true worth. Many of these buyer’s are timely,

Money Pits

Hidden Gems

Signs of water in the basement:

Out-dated kitchens:

A sign of a water leakage in the basement is not something to take lightly. Repairs could cost up to $20,000 or more, depending on the extent of the damage and you would have to excavate around the entire house to find the water problem to fix.

An out-dated kitchen is one of the easiest things to fix in a home. By using a small sum of money, you can easily transform an old, musty kitchen into an open and bright area.

Water in the basement is very easy to spot. All you need to do is look for water rings on the wall and floor. Also, pay attention to damage to storage items in the basement. Termites:

Termites, especially in Florida, are a homeowner’s or potential buyer’s worst fear.Termites, along with carpenter ants, can eat through floorboards, walls, and severely damage a home’s foundational structure to the point of it being irreparable. Asbestos:

If you find asbestos in a home you are interested in purchasing, especially the airborne asbestos, treatment could cost $20,000 or more. Asbestos in a home can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

Some simple ways to update a kitchen are to replace surface appliances, refinish the countertops, and replace cabinet doors, instead of the entire cabinetry. Old bathrooms:

Is a grungy bathroom a deal-breaker for you when searching for a new home? It shouldn’t be, because the bathroom is very inexpensive to fix. Nowadays, you can find reasonably priced appliances to replace fixtures in the bathroom online and at stores like IKEA.

::

opportunistic individuals, who sense the opportunity to get a piece of the “American Dream”, are moving in and engaging in a bargain-hunting buying spree… perhaps it’s time to get back in the game! The National Association of Realtors predicts the creation of an additional one million jobs through the second half of this year and another two million in 2011. Sales statistics are strengthening and that’s a good sign of money coming back into the housing market. On NBC’s The Today Show, co-anchor Meredith Vieira interviewed real estate and business mogul, Barbara Corcoran, to find out what to watch for when house-hunting in today’s market.

The price of a total landscape re-do of a home today can range from $1,000 to $8,000, depending on what services you want done to the property. Quality landscaping not only gives a home curb appeal, but also increases its value by 10%. A good real estate agent can guide you through the hurdles of today’s real estate market. They can navigate and help you buy your first home, dream home, or investment property. So, next time you are on the prowl for a killer deal in today’s housing market, keep these items in mind and you’ll be sure to find a property that is a diamond in the rough! <

Also, bathroom flooring can be totally replaced for as little as $500, depending on what type of flooring you choose. Poor landscaping:

A house that only needs the landscaping fixed is a great deal. Poor landscaping is found fairly often with short sale and/or foreclosure properties.

Mark Dean MAINGATE Real Estate Inc Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Mark Dean is a native Floridian, bronzed on the beaches of Pensacola. He put down the classical piano, so to speak, at 14 and picked up a guitar “because it was easier to meet girls being on the front of the stage.” Mark was always a class clown in his advanced classes, and transformed being the voice of the morning announcements at high school into a dream career. After attending Florida State for mass communications, Mark spent the next 15 plus years as a radio announcer, radio station program director and operations manager, and general manager of several businesses. He left radio in 1996, and moved to Orlando to become General Manager of an entertainment production company and a premier DJ on stage at Universal Studios and Disney.

227 Westmoor Bend Orlando $124,000

6425 Cartmel Lane Reserve at Lake Butler Sound $615,000 Pending

6706 Thorhill Circle Lakes of Windermere Ashton Woods model home $359,126

In 2002, Mark moved into the Town of Windermere, where he experienced the need for a different kind of real estate company. So he molded a new concept and founded MAINGATE Real Estate. He is not only the founder and president, but the Broker/ Owner also. So what does a single, successful, former entertainer, entrepreneur do in his “spare” time? Mark just completed a 2 year term as Chairman of the Town of Windermere’s Downtown Business District Committee, volunteers as audio engineer for local churches and events, enjoys riding his custom Harley, and loves playing with (anybody’s) dogs. His favorite charities include United Cerebral Palsy, Russel Home for Atypical Children, Florida Baptist Children’s Home, and the Orlando Humane Society. What is the most fun you have ever had? “That would be a toss up between being on the radio every day, or the once in a lifetime thrill of flying with the Blue Angels.” So how does all of this varied experience translate into what you do now? “Well, I’m not a salesperson. I am a business person. But I’m not in the real estate business, just the people business. It has been said that if Monk and McGuyver had a love child, that would be me. Obsessive but creative and can fix anything. I will do whatever it takes to make sure that everyone is smiling before I leave the room.”

Mark Dean MarkDean@MAINGATE.com 407-701-0428 MAINGATE Real Estate Inc 7600 Dr Phillips Blvd, Suite 8 Orlando, FL 32819

What’s next? “I am happy to announce that MAINGATE is opening a new real estate office in Dr. Phillips, next door to my favorite restaurants. I’m also dabbling back in radio with a new national radio show called Deal Me In America. Other than that, you can probably find me enjoying dinner and a glass of wine at various popular Sand Lake Restaurants. Would you like to join me?”<

> “When it comes to Real Estate, having a well-established strategy covers only part of every Realtor’s successful approach. The key lies in listening to my clients’ needs and building a mutually trusting relationship with them”, says Jan Walker, Parkland International Realty’s co-owner and luxury realty expert. Jan has been effectively serving the Central Florida housing market — including the Winter Park, Maitland and College Park areas — for over 20 years. It is her extensive Real Estate knowledge and true customer interest that made her worthy of a place in the Orlando Magazine 2010 Real Estate Hot 100 list — where the best real estate professionals in Central Florida receive annual recognition for their real estate skills and outstanding work. Jan believes that to be a truly effective Top Producer, she must not only be a good sales person, but a great problem solver. When it comes to matching a buyer with the ‘perfect home’ more often than not, it’s the little things that can make or break a deal. Knowing what special amenities to feature in marketing a home successfully has distinguished Jan throughout her career. Jan’s high-end realty success has been the result of her dedication to clients and their vision. She not only knows the nuances of marketing, she excels at the analysis of price and value. Jan works closely with clients to understand their specific needs and keep them informed throughout the buying or selling process, giving them the guidance and information that they want and need, versus manipulation.

> Ahh… beautiful Panama City Beach! With more and more of the “spring breakers” being dispersed to other parts of the country, this ‘hotspot’ stretching over 27 miles of white-sanded beaches bordering clear, emerald green waters, boasts 300 days of sunshine annually and is definitely becoming the destination getaway for families and romantics at heart and is favored by travelers seeking an affordable beach vacation with year-round offerings. Addressing another concern, the recent disastrous oil spill has barely affected this enclave of Gulf front spas, resorts, parks and restaurants; it’s unfortunate that media hype has frightened off some of the tourist trade but the fact remains that this area has not experienced any appreciable oil contamination. While we were there we did not see one smidgen of oil anywhere. With this in mind, now might be an opportune time for visitors to book and take advantage of some very nice pricing opportunities being offered to lure the tourist trade back. Even more attractive is the ease with which tourists can now reach this paradise, as the travel infrastructure has matured handsomely in the past few months. The new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) debuted in May of this year and is the first new major airport constructed in the U.S. in more than a decade. It’s a 15 minute scenic drive of towering pines en-route to ‘PCB’ and is served by Southwest and Delta Airlines, both offering convenient daily flights to key U.S. Destinations, including cities serving as international gateways. From Orlando, we previously had to connect thru Atlanta but now are blessed with direct, non-stop flights from (MCO) to ‘PCB’ in about an hour’s flight time, via Southwest. There’s a lot to see and do in Bay County, from the Panama City beaches to Walton County’s beautiful Watercolor Resort on the Emerald Coast. We began our summer getaway at the Legacy by the Sea Resort, Panama City Beach, the newest of 3 By The Sea Resorts. The 14-story Legacy boasts an airy lobby where guests can enjoy stunning views of the gulf with their free continental breakfast. Other amenities include gulffront rooms with private balconies and fully equipped kitchens. A heated gulf front pool and whirlpool, a laundry facility, a guest computer station and a gulf view fitness center. We opted for the penthouse, which had 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, with the master bedroom having a large Jacuzzi in the room itself. It also includes a comfortable living room, full kitchen, and a wrap around balcony – all with a view of the gulf. A great place to hang out with friends!

Saltwater Grill Serving hand-cut, hickory grilled, succulent filet mignon, rib eye, top sirloin, New York strip and fresh Maine lobsters, Saltwater Grill has quickly become the “in” place to dine on Panama City Beach.Where brewing vats once resided in the center of the former restaurant,The Panama City Brewery, extensive work has been done to this interior space to create the breathtaking 25,000 Gallon Saltwater Aquarium. Another transformation to the Saltwater Grill has been the addition of Panama City Beach’s only Piano Bar, which has become a favorite with locals and tourists alike. www.saltwatergrillpcb.com Pick up a picnic lunch from Liza’s Kitchen, and head on over to St. Andrews State Park. One of the most popular outdoor recreation spots in Florida, St. Andrews State Recreation Area is characterized by rolling, white sand dunes separated by low swales of pinewoods and marshes. The 1,260-acre area, located on the peninsula, has more than 1.5 miles of beach on the Gulf of Mexico and the Grand Lagoon. Outdoor enthusiasts can find hiking along scenic trails, camping along the shore, unparalleled fishing, kayaking tours, off-road cycling, diving and more. Take the shuttle boat to Shell Island, a pristine barrier island situated just across the ship’s channel from the mainland, a 700-acre undeveloped island that provides a peaceful spot to relax in nature.The shuttle runs every hour on the hour and departs from the main boating dock in St. Andrews State Park.

Since 1967, Capt. Anderson’s has innovated many of the Gulf Coast’s classic dishes (our favorites–Fresh Crab Fingers sautéed in seasoned butter, Fresh Gulf Shrimp and Jumbo Lump Crab Meat au Gratin, Greek-style open hearth charcoal broiled fish and the certified Angus Beef Steaks were phenomenal!) and has won the loyalty of millions of customers and

on Scenic Highway 30A between the Grayton Beach State Park and Seaside. friends. It is a local tradition to dine early and watch the fishing fleets unload their catch. Capt. Anderson’s restaurant is one of those rare “family” restaurants that not only survives, but also strengthens and improves through the years. Run by the second generation of four Patronis brothers, serving 1,500 to 2,000 guests each evening (closed on Sundays) is in and of itself difficult to comprehend, so we were quite impressed with their business model, suffice it to say. Seating is an experience in itself, as our ‘tour guide’ traversed us thru a series of dining rooms until we found our spot. If you’re wondering about reservations, forget it...they couldn’t possibly schedule anything with the kind of activity that goes on there– –we almost felt as if we were in a Disney World theme park! This place packs ‘em in from February thru October, and then shuts down after season during the months from November thru January, giving themselves and their employees a much-needed breather to rest and enjoy their families. www.captainandersons.com Boatyard Restaurant GM Konrad Jochum sat with us in the warm night’s air and joined us for a drink. Most of the dining is held ‘al fresco’ and no one seemed to mind the heat, which was in the 90’s! This restaurant is adjacent to Capt. Anderson’s, serves around 700 per night and is accessible by both land and sea. Known for the amazing view and lounge-like environment, Boatyard offers mouthwatering fish tacos, oysters cracked straight from the ice display, and sushi by the restaurant’s gourmet chef. www.boatyardclub.com

Pier Park Nothing is complete without a little shopping. A 1.1 million square foot shopping experience with over a dozen restaurants, Pier Park is located in the heart of Panama City Beach. Opened in February 2008, Pier Park is the first of its kind within the destination. Its distinct architecture achieves a warm, beachlike atmosphere that is enjoyed by hundreds of thousands each year. Revered by many as “Downtown Panama City Beach,” Pier Park plays host to many large-scale community events each year and has become one of the most defining features of the region. www.visitpanamacitybeach.com/do/pierpark Serenity Spa- Bay Point Marriott Golf Resort & Spa For me, I could not resist some winding down time. The name says it all! Absolutely gorgeous surroundings and oh, so serene! Serenity at Bay Point is the regions premier full service spa & salon. This 12,000 square foot state of the art facility offers you tranquility, rejuvenation, balance, and peace. Afterward, stop by the Kingfish Restaurant & Sushi Bar and indulge in some lite fare; they also serve Sunday brunch made to order. www.marriottbaypoint.com Our final stop was at WaterColor Inn & Resort. WaterColor Inn & Resort is located in the heart of WaterColor, along the pristine beaches of south Walton County overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and directly

On the property you’ll find 62-rooms that feature balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.There is an adult’s only pool outside the main lobby and there is a family friendly pool with an informal beachside grille restaurant & ice cream parlor. This popular beach resort is well known as Northwest Florida’s Only Four Diamond AAA Hotel. For guests with families or who just prefer more of a single family home style getaway, there are a number of cozy, unique vacation cottages complete with gourmet kitchens to rent. You can’t beat the sugar white sand and emerald green waters, or the hiking trails throughout the property. WaterColor also provides free tennis, a fitness club, bikes, kidz camp, canoeing and Yolo Boarding on Western Lake for guests. There are movie nights and bonfires along with the Seaside Repertory Theatre featuring “The Fisherman and His Wife” a must see for kids of all ages.

Shopping is also available on the property at Old Florida Outfitters, Barefoot Princess & Island Clothiers, Wine World at WaterColor (also a restaurant), and Blue Giraffe. “Fish Out of Water” was one of my favorite restaurants, which is on the resort property and offers a delicious selection of organic and locally grown food with a menu featuring the chef’s daily favorites. The fresh oysters were the best I ever had! There is a lot to do and see along the 30-A area both on and off the WaterColor property.You won’t be disappointed!

Danielle Bisutti

In Orlando helping kids in modeling and musical theatre By: Dana Damato Photography: Dimitry Loiseau/ DimitryL.com Hair & Make-up:ValerieNoble.com Wardrobe Styling: Dimitry Loiseau Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Ambitious, stylish, and beautiful are just a few words to describe TV star, Danielle Bisutti. Appearing in over 15 television series, being an accomplished singer/songwriter, and recently releasing a movie, Danielle is no stranger to the entertainment industry. Taking a break from her hectic schedule, Danielle enjoyed a crisp glass of chardonnay while flipping through Orlando Style Magazine at Orlando’s exquisite Il Mulino’s Restaurant at The Walt Disney World Swan Resort. Q: What event are you in town for? A: I am here for The, (pronounced tay), which is week-long acting school. It doesn’t just apply to actors; it also applies to children with interests in modeling and musical theatre. It’s a great opportunity for children who live throughout the United States, who don’t live in New York or Los Angeles, to get exposed to industry professionals. They do a showcase in front of case managers from LA and New York and the kids get to be seen. Q: So what is your role in this event? A: I am here as a celebrity special guest. I’m hosting the events and I also get to teach the kids about the importance of listening in a scene and how to break down a scene. I am also sharing my own personal journey as an actress. Q: What TV shows are you in right now? A: Right now I play Amanda Cantwell on the Nickelodeon show True Jackson VP we have about 5 more episodes and we are on Saturday nights at 8:30pm.

styletome.com

Q: What is your character like? A: Amanda Cantwell is a high-power working mom. I do want to add that my stylist only dresses me in Karen Millen. She is a British designer and she is phenomenal! Her cuts support and enhance the female form like no other cut I have ever worn. Every stitching and every detail makes you feel so feminine, sexy, and powerful. Her dresses are made from high-end top of the line materials. If you are one of those women who work an 8-hour day and then go out to happy hour after and don’t have time to change, you can wear that dress. Just freshen up your make up, change your accessories and your good to go. Q:With all of the negative publicity towards Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and other young artists in pop culture, how do you feel about being seen as a role model for the younger crowd? A: It’s a shame what happens to these child stars. The people around them use them. There is a lot of pressure in this industry and that can really mess with your self-esteem. I enjoy being in this position and I actually feel like I’m a role model. I am not perfect and my background is Christian. I hold my morals and values close to my heart. I think parents should expose their children to other forms of pop culture. Give them a book or let them watch classic movies. Q: How about the pressures for young models? A: They need to understand that print is a lot of airbrush these days and hours of hair and make up. I work out extensively at the

gym and I eat healthy. You don’t need to be anorexic to be beautiful. Q: What advice would you give to young models that are in the position to try to look perfect? A: I always tell them that there is nobody else on the planet that is exactly like you.You are here for a very specific purpose, which is defining, and discovering who you are, what your strengths are, and what your beauty is. If there is something you don’t physically like, if you feel like you’re overweight, look at what you are eating. Go to the gym and be healthy. It’s about having a healthy balanced lifestyle. I try to tell all my young fans to take care of themselves and their heart first. That is where the real beauty is. Q: It is important to portray that image, what do you think is the most effective way to give that message out to them? A: Being authentic, I have to practice what I preach. How I am, how I present myself, and encouraging them to keep discovering their strengths. Q: A lot of our readers are working moms and women in high power professions, any last words for them? A: I have so much respect for the working mom’s. They are the ones who help make the world go round. My heart goes out to them. If I wasn’t playing them on TV, I would be one in real life! <

Celebrity Soup

Breaking the Illusion

Behind Celebrities’ Red-Carpet Looks By: Alicia Satchfield Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> We all have our favorite movie stars or music artists that we love to see perform on screen or on the stage. Though talent and drive is what got them to a position of fame, it can’t be denied that celebrities have been idolized and fawned over for decades. From Elvis and Marilyn Monroe to Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, fans have turned up by the thousands just to catch a glimpse of these glamorous stars. With this in mind, I think we all can agree there is a high amount of pressure on them to look a certain way when seen by the public eye. Understandably, celebrities guard their private life most tirelessly. For movie premieres and award shows, however, they are more than happy to smile for the fans and sign autographs, as it really should be a fun evening to celebrate the art of film and music with colleagues and fans. There is no such thing as one-stop shopping for celebrities when they prepare for a red carpet look. Some celebrities gravitate towards the same style of dress, even when

the design or color is varied. One such star is Keira Knightley, who more often than not wears a gown that accentuates her delicate neck and shoulders. Her one-shouldered plum ensemble showed off her curves at the Academy Awards. After spending much of her life as a model, it comes as no surprise that Heidi Klum shows up in a daring and gorgeous frock. Her red dress is an instant showstopper with its bright hue and fabulous collar. Young Country singing sensation Taylor Swift varies her red carpet looks from rock to princess. She’s a vision straight from a fairy tale in pale, silky gold. “Bootylicious” Beyonce is famous for showing off her great figure in dresses like a mermaid-style gown, which emphasizes the thighs and flares out at the calf. Reese Witherspoon is an actress that normally shoots for elegant looks on the red carpet, like the flowing midnight blue gown she wore to the Oscars. Now, of course it’s not only women that have to deal with the stress of dressing for

the big night! While the ladies must certainly consider jewelry, hair, and make-up, they normally aren’t concerned with how a suit is cut or what kind of tie to wear. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie always look stunning on the red carpet, with neither going for particularly extravagant or daring look. (Although Brad Pitt did wear an all white suit once!) Women have to think about the make-up in accordance with what their dress, hair, and jewelry look like. In this case, Angelina chose bold lips with little else to distract, a tactic used by many women courageous enough to wear red lipstick on the red carpet. As all women know, looking great for hours at a time is like fighting a losing battle. How do these stars maintain their flawless look for an entire evening? Believe it or not, hair is usually not washed the day of an event. The hair will actually be too clean and won’t hold a style as well or be as shiny if it hasn’t had a day to collect healthy oils. Numerous products are also used to prevent fly-aways

or limp curls. For the face, extra make-up is always at the ready to rid a shining face or dull lipstick. Eye drops are used to make the eyes look bright and alert instead of tired and red. Fashion tape is a must have for women to keep their dresses in place. Gowns with daring cuts need to be literally taped into place to prevent showing too much skin. Fortunately, celebs rarely have to do everything themselves. Fashion designers put together the entire outfit (with their approval, of course) and stick with them up to the evening of the event to prevent last minute emergencies. No matter how prepared, however, things do come up that require immediate attention. One fashion stylist exclaimed it took zipper lubricant and extreme shapewear to get an actress’ gown’s zippered up minutes before stepping onto the red carpet. Another stylist had a situation where a choker necklace was too small for the actress’ neck! The stylist had to literally create an extender that was covered by the actress’ long hair, allowing the choker to fit.

It’s important to remember that there is no set rule for winning over the red carpet. Some play it safe and look beautiful every time, while others forge their own path, taking risks and discovering new styles. Sometimes it pays off greatly (like Heidi Klum’s red number), and sometimes it doesn’t (Bjork’s infamous swan dress). Sometimes it is simply confusing, like most of Lady Gaga’s ensembles. Either way, it’s important to remember all the steps that go into looking fabulous for these events. We suggest packing extra fashion tape in that stylish clutch you’re bringing! <

Pretty Mess

She’s equal parts Hollywood glamour and S&M chic By: Cathleen K. Bode Photo By: Marco Bollinger Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> What does the intersection between fashion and music look like? It looks like stylista, pop princess, dance diva and No. 1 Billboard chart-topper Erika Jayne. Fashion is an integral part of Erika’s phenomenon – and success. She has been compared to Madonna trapped in the moment when she recorded the Erotica album, Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge or Gwen Stefani in a sultry burlesque act. These comparisons have something in common: they have a sultry, edgy feel that synergizes with a theatrical music aspect to make a larger-than-life, incredibly powerful fashion statement. She’s equal parts Hollywood glamour and S&M chic. Erika Jayne has returned to the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart with her single “Pretty Mess,” moving ahead of Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro” and the Black Eyed Peas’ “Rock That Body.” With her fourth single, “Pretty Mess” hitting No. 1 on the Billboard dance chart, Erika is one of only eight artists, including Everything But the Girl and Ce Ce Peniston, to ever achieve this distinction. This is a particularly impressive feat for the pop vocalist and songwriter. “They say good things come in threes, but I think I would have to disagree,” says ERIKA. The Atlanta-born, Los Angeles transplant’s three previous singles—“Stars,” “Roller Coaster” and “Give You Everything”—have also hit #1. “Pretty Mess” is the title track of her debut album out now on E1 Records and was written by Jayne and Peter Rafelson (Madonna, Britney Spears). The chart position was propelled by a stellar remix package by some of today’s most in-demand producers: Dave Aude, Tracy Young, DJ Escape & Johnny Vicious, Larry Tee, Bill Hamel, Klubjumpers, Peter Rafelson and Marshall Stack. The Pretty Mess video is co-directed by VMA-nominated choreographer and artistic director Mikey Minden (Pussy Cat Dolls, Girlicious, Paradiso Girls) and famed photographer Mike Ruiz.<

> Celebration, Florida proudly welcomes their newest Town Center merchant-Unique Boutique. With an incredible collection of fashion for men, women and teens, Unique Boutique is where fashion meets affordability. From handbags to jewelry, shoes to casual wear, owner Lisa Tariq handpicks items that make her store truly “unique”.

Lisa felt that designer merchandise was often cost prohibitive to the average woman shopping today, and now strives to provide her clientele with boutique-style inventory without the boutique-style price tags. Her items allow the customer to dress in stylish manner with clothing that will surely get noticed.

With a sales and marketing background, Lisa discovered Celebration on a trip to Florida with her family, and immediately fell in love with the town. Originally from the New York Metropolitan area, she was consumed with the world of fashion and how to integrate functional and stylish pieces into everyday life. When she noticed retail space available, and the need for an eclectic clothing store, she jumped on the chance.

The opinion of Unique Boutique from local residents and tourists alike has been overwhelmingly positive, and visitors can’t say enough about how “unique” the store is. Word is getting around town to the local residents that the boutique is a “must shop” destination in their very own community, and will soon be a premier shopping destination for the Orlando market. <

From the start, Lisa has made a point to only buy items for her customers that they can’t find at any other stores or shopping malls in the area. Though some brands and designers are not as well known, their style, comfort, and unique qualities give them a competitive edge over mass brands.

Relax & Unwind...

It’s Time To Live A Stress-Free Life

By: Rebecca Coe Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Here are six simple and easy techniques that will normalize your hormone levels and help you manage stress.

Stand in the sun and soak up natural vitamin D that will enhance your mood and give you a fresh dose of energy.

Take your frustration to the gym or to the streets. Running, walking, or lifting weights helps release stress from the body and boosts your mood. Yoga is another great exercise that has many health benefits, including flexibility, strength, and balance.

Last but not least, eat healthy! There are several stress-free foods that when incorporated into your daily meals, can aid in weight-loss and stress management.

Try rhythmic and deep breathing. If your breathing is rushed and you feel on the verge of hyperventilating, slow down your breathing. Close your eyes and take a deep breath; inhale for five seconds and then exhale slowly. Recognize how your body responds and naturally relaxes. Keep repeating the deep breathing, with your eyes closed, until you feel your breathing is back to normal. Listen to music. Select music that is calming and soothing to listen to and combine it with relaxation exercises. If you prefer, try listening to a specific audio relaxation CD, which combines music with instructions for relaxing. Make positive verbal affirmations that combat negative thoughts and emotions. You can also use post-it notes and place these affirmations on your desk at work or somewhere where you can constantly be reminded of them.

• Almonds, pistachios, and walnuts are three nuts that are rich in vitamins E and B, which help boost the body’s immune system. • Skim Milk: drinking warm milk will reduce muscle spasms and soothe tension. • Oatmeal: carbohydrates from the oatmeal help the brain produce a relaxing chemical called serotonin. • Oranges: vitamin C will reduce your blood pressure and return your cortisol levels to normal. • Salmon: omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon keep adrenaline at a normal level, regulate cortisol levels, and prevent heart disease. • Spinach: magnesium found in spinach prevents migraine headaches and the feeling of fatigue. <

>> Ask Dr. Lee

Q: Dr. Lee, what is your specialty? A:

My specialty is in periodontics, which is a dental specialty that specifically deals with gum related issues including dental implants. This specialty usually requires three years of training beyond dental school. My residency was completed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Dr. Christopher Lee Dr. Phillips Periodontics & Implants 7009 Dr. Phillips Blvd. Suite 200 Orlando, Florida 32819 407-248-2828 info@drphillipsperio.com www.drphillipsperio.com

styletome.com

Dental problems that may require treatment by a periodontist include gum disease, receding gums, replacing missing teeth with dental implants, and bone augmentation to prepare sites for dental implants. Most procedures can be performed under IV sedation, which is helpful for people with high dental anxiety.

Q: What can you tell patients with

gum problems about the course of treatment they should expect?

A: If a person has been diagnosed with gum problems, their dentist or dental hygienist may advise them to visit a periodontist. The first appointment at our office includes a comprehensive evaluation and consultation to tailor a treatment plan to the patient’s specific needs.

Q: Tell us the benefits of treating gum disease with LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure).

A:

LANAP is a new, minimally invasive surgical procedure in the treatment

of gum disease. Because of the small size of the laser tip, patients have less swelling and discomfort than traditional gum surgery. It can even be used with patients who are on blood thinners or have other underlying medical issues such as diabetes. The procedure is usually covered by most dental insurances so patients have less out of pocket expenses. Please contact the office so we can schedule your comprehensive evaluation.

> “Change the color of the front door, ” I said firmly. “Why and what color is better?” wondered my client. As a long time Feng Shui consultant I went on to explain and to offer some quick and easy suggestions to alleviate his love and money problems, two popular reasons people seek a Feng Shui consultation. Feng Shui has become increasingly popular in the West. It came from the Orient over twenty years ago. The basic premise is that the surroundings affect the overall quality of life, for good or ill.

Feng Shui

Ancient Success Secrets In Wind and Water By: Dikki-Jo Mullen, Astrologer and Feng Shui Consultant Read more at: StyleToMe.com

One popular story tells of a restaurant, which was failing.The Feng Shui consultant placed a red mat under the cash register after changing its angle, hung an octagonal clock on a wall opposite the door and installed a string of bells on a red cord near the door. Immediately the energy changed and the café became an overnight money maker and success. Some homes or business places seem to always generate failure and sadness while others thrive. The difference is in the chi or energy flow. Simply put it’s a matter of good and bad vibes. “A white front door is always a gateway to sorrow. Just watch the evening news. Most scenes of crime and other tragedies will show a dwelling with a white front door. The direction the front door faces is a factor, but red is always an auspicious choice. Also, a lonely single person will usually find love upon changing the color of the bed sheets. Peach or pink bed sheets (peach is preferable) will almost always draw a new relationship within twenty eight days. Fix the leaky faucet in the kitchen too. Dripping water represents your prosperity and strength dripping away. Place a mirror so that it reflects the food on the stove or at the dinner table. This will double the amount of food. That symbolizes a doubling of the money. ” “Let’s look at the Ba’gua indications, and I’ll install some cures for you. I have red ribbons, a bamboo flute and some sacred calligraphy. The West relates to children, so we want to look there, as well as at your love and money corners. I use the compass school of Feng Shui, so we’ll check the actual directions. This is a Lo Pan,” I added, as I

styletome.com

produced a special Feng Shui practitioner’s compass, with I-Ching trigrams and Chinese characters on it. The Feng Shui philosophy is originally from China, and used throughout the Far East. Feng Shui means literally “wind” and “water”. It’s a system for life enhancement which combines architecture, astrology, geomancy, mathematics, good taste and psychology in a powerful amalgam of science and religion. Inner harmony and fulfillment depend upon understanding the cosmic energies that surround us. The proper use of color, garden plants, furniture placement and other factors can be the key to promotion and longevity. The opposite can draw failure or even an early death. If the Chi, the name given to the energy flow, is bad, then your best efforts will be futile. Sometimes just changing one item can be enough to redirect bad Chi into good. First of all think of the universe as being composed of five astrological elements. There’s fire (Mars), earth (Saturn), wood (Jupiter), metal (Venus) and water (Mercury). These must all flow in harmony with the magnetic energy as shown by the compass points. Feng Shui has two basic truths. 1) Heaven rules Earth. 2) Both Earth and Heaven oversee all living things. Northern light is the most favorable for creative work. Try to have your work space lit by northern light. If that’s not possible, perhaps a mirror can be strategically placed to reflect northern light your way. Try to work always facing a front door so that active chi can bring in you its benefits. This assures progress. The Ba’gua diagram represents a sacred turtle shell. Legend tells us that a Chinese emperor once looked up at the sky, then down at the Earth. At that moment a turtle appeared with the secrets of the universe mapped on its shell. Those secrets became the sacred octagon of Feng Shui. Even today, after thousands of years, the sacred design is the framework used by Feng Shui practitioners. To begin, simply decide which area of life needs attention. Then make positive repairs or improvements in those areas. Feng Shui can be much more complex, but don’t be afraid to experiment using minor adjustments. After twenty eight days, one cycle of the Moon, try something else if there hasn’t been an improvement. Usually, though, employing Feng Shui will quickly bring results.

The Nine Basic Cures

LOOK FABULOUS Blepharoplasty

1. Mirrors, crystal balls, refracting light 2. Sounds, wind chimes, bells 3. Living objects such as aquariums and plants 4. Moving objects such as wind socks, whirly gigs, fountains 5. Heavy objects such as statues and stones 6. Electrically powered objects such as computers, televisions, stereos 7. Bamboo flutes 8. Colors (according to directions on the Lo Pan compass points) 9. Fragrances, incense and oils for aromatherapy 10. Mystical Cures and blessings. These include using rice, salt, coins, sacred calligraphy, nine lemons, powdered cinnabar and others. The Three Secret Reinforcements

1. Body Gestures - mudras, praying hands, yoga postures 2. Speech - say only positive words, sound travel and surrounds, impacting the environment. 3. Mind Secret - Power of positive thinking, your thoughts build the world you live in, so visualize good intentions. The mantra below is Sanskrit, an ancient energy language used in conjunction with Feng Shui. It can help you set correct speech, the second of the Three Secret Reinforcements, immediately. Chant it to release your karma. Old problems will be resolved and assistance will come when and where you most need it. Use Spanish vowel sounds and common English consonants. Repeated often it will have the effect of releasing you from blockages and from all that is holding you back. It dissolves your karma and lightens lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work load.

By George H. Pope, MD, FACS Are you looking for a high impact facial cosmetic procedure with a quick recovery time? Every year, 100,000 men and women choose blepharoplasty, or eyelift, to improve the way they look. It makes sense to focus on your eyes: droopy eyelids can make you look older and more tired than you actually are. Blepharoplasty removes the excess fat, muscle, and skin from both upper and lower lids, giving a refreshed appearance, with a younger, ďŹ rmer eye area. Patients love the results and the easy recovery. We usually remove the sutures six days after surgery, and patients are typically ready to go back to work at that point, looking refreshed and youthful. Makeup can be worn two days after suture removal to cover any bruising that may occur. Blepharoplasty is a great investment, especially if your time and budget are limited. For even more impressive results, many combine the eyelift with the Pearl laser treatment, which reduces dark spots and sun damage; Botox injections which minimize crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feet; Obagiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Elastiderm cream to smooth out wrinkles around the eyes, and other medical grade skin products to ďŹ rm, tighten and rejuvenate the skin. This coordinated anti-aging strategy can take years off in just a few weeks. The Cutera Pearl laser treatment gently removes the top layer of skin and stimulates collagen growth, giving you have new, healthy, vibrant ski with fewer wrinkles for a healthier, more youthful appearance. So, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet need a full facelift, or if the time and budget just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right yet, consider blepharoplasty and some of the non-surgical treatments we have available to supplement it. I think you would be very pleased with the results.

If you would like to know more, or would like to schedule a consultation, please call my ofďŹ ce.We look forward to helping you achieve your dreams!

Dagger > It’s time to smile and have fun again! “Extreme” is back! The 2000 hp, 300 mph Dagger GT’s design objectives are to be the best-looking, fastest Supercar in the world. This Supercar is being specially designed, very deliberately and explicitly, to break all world records and to bring back the most popular class of race car: the unlimited class which has been regulated, restricted and compromised into extinction. Each Dagger GT will be carefully handmade by exceptional, enthusiastic craftsmen. Each car will be custom-made to the owner’s preferences and desires. You can order: one of three (3) hardcore racing models; a street-legal comfortable-riding sport model, or a softriding, luxurious GT-X model that looks and feels like a million-dollar car, but runs like a bat-out-of-hell. 5 production Daggers plan to be delivered in 2011. Each Dagger will be 49-state street-legal if desired by the buyer. The base MSRP of the Dagger GT-S or “Sport” model is $450,000 plus custom work, if requested. Deliveries are scheduled beginning in the first half of 2011. Production is very limited to maintain exceptional, over-the-top quality and fine craftsmanship.

Each Dagger GT is custom-made from 100% proven, guaranteed, off-the-shelf racing components and hand-built to the highest standards by experienced, exceptional supercar craftsmen. The car features an over-the-top big block, 2000 hp aluminum, twin turbo 572 multifuel racing engine, routinely built by Nelson Racing Engines. The engine is also “streetable.” A custom TranStar/Mendeola 6-speed transaxle geared to 308 mph is also featured.The transaxle is designed to withstand the 2000 foot-pounds of torque delivered by the engine.

What’s Missing From the Immigration Debate? Orlando Now/Business News By: Mark NeJame Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> What is missing from today’s immigration debate? A simple concept that should not be foreign to anyone’s human experience: empathy. A perfect example of this deficit is the cold debate surrounding the Dream Act, a bill composed of uncontroversial humanistic policies. Consider finding yourself in the following circumstance. Unable to find work to support you and your family, your parents decide to enter the United States without documents. You are three years old. Although you have no say in the matter, your parents make the conscious decision to violate the civil—until this very day, not yet criminal—laws of the United States. E.g., See 8 U.S.C. § 1325 You attend elementary school, learn to recite the pledge of allegiance, and sing the star spangled banner thousands of times before you reach high school. As a young adult, you are a model student. Despite difficult economic circumstances at home, due to your parent’s lack of work authorization, you earn a couple of B’s at worst but mostly A’s.You adopt American ideals of hard work and sacrifice as virtues that inevitably lead to prosperity. To you, these virtues are selffulfilling truths.You anxiously plan to pursue higher education, faithfully believing in the promise of these ideals. Your parent’s rent/mortgage payments are used to support at least part of your educational cost through local property taxes, and although they may not file any tax returns, they pay thousands of dollars into a social security insurance system of which they will never see a dime. This, perhaps, is a welldeserved penalty for their transgression. However, when you complete high school in the top third of your class, you discover

styletome.com

that the American promise of hard work and sacrifice does not apply to you. You are an undocumented non-citizen, or as others would view it, a less than human “illegal alien,” —except that, you’ve never viewed yourself this way. Instinctively, you’ve always considered yourself American. Most importantly, in the recesses of your mind you’ve always held Thomas Jefferson’s words dear to your heart. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Declaration of Independence, 1776 Thomas Jefferson This is your plight, along with many other young students who would benefit from the Dream Act. Despite some ill willed attempts to misrepresent the contents of the DREAM ACT, it is a humanist-bipartisan bill that would give a select group of welldeserving students the chance to earn legal status in the United States. The Dream Act would allow a limited residency for children who: •Came to the United States as a child (15 or under); •Are long-term U.S. residents (five years or more); •Have graduated (or will graduate) from high school or have obtained (or will obtain) a GED; •Will serve in the armed services or com plete at least two years in an institution of higher learning;

•Are persons of good moral character; •Are not disqualified from conditional per- manent residency based on any fraudu- lent, criminal activity, or immigration viola- tions, among other disqualifiers. Other provisions of the Dream Act limit use of taxpayers’ dollars by: •Retaining the State’s right to determine tuition for these children as state residents or non-residents. •Preserving limits on chain migration by maintaining limits on these children’s ability to petition family members. We, as constituents, may demand that our representatives pursue legitimate objectives of punishing adults for their own legal violations. We should even demand that they devise legitimate ways of deterring any further illegal migration. Nonetheless, punishing children who took no conscious part in any violation of our immigration laws serves no legitimate purpose. We should demand that our legislators allow our nation to seize upon the promises of America that is embodied in these children, and uphold the very ideals our nation was founded upon.< • The opinion of the author does not always reflect the opinion of Orlando Style Magazine

> How sure are you of your future? Do you know how long you will live? Do you have enough assets to maintain your lifestyle if you live to age 100? What will your health be like down the road? Years of experience have taught me the best thing I can do for my clients is to prepare them for the ‘uncertainty’ in life. I cannot predict how long you will live or how healthy you will be in life. And as much as I would like to, I cannot predict future market conditions. What I can do is help you make informed investment decisions taking into account your dreams and tolerance for risk. I’ll help you define your dream, develop your plan and track your progress over time. We will build a long-term relationship designed around your dreams. As a Senior Financial Advisor with more than 12 years of experience, I pride myself on creating an exceptional client service experience. Here are three ways I feel our office sets itself apart:

1. I have three licensed team members available to assist you with your investment and insurance needs. 2. We do not believe in voice mail –we strive to always be available.

3. We believe in and encourage life-long learning. This helps me provide high-quality advice in all areas of financial planning – increasing worth, protection needs, tax strategies, investment allocation, retirement strategies and estate planning. I am family oriented and consider my business my extended family. Alice and I have been married for 15 years and have an 11 year old son. Brandon and I share a love of soccer. Having a competitive edge has helped me become successful as an advisor. Tax laws are changing, and I expect taxes to increase. Are you in a high tax bracket? You may benefit from a Roth IRA conversion. It’s not too late to take advantage of the 2010 Roth conversion rules.

The Unveiling of Amway Center Marks a New Chapter in Orlando’s History By: Gary C. Sain President and CEO, Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau, Inc. Photo of Amway Center By: Fernando Medina, Orlando Magic Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Just three short years ago, Orlando was due for some big changes to its public arts and entertainment venues — not to mention its skyline. And on July 26, 2007, that’s exactly what residents were promised when the Orange County Commission approved a public building program that includes a new state-of-the-art events center, a new performing arts center and a renovation of the Citrus Bowl Stadium. An official groundbreaking celebration was held July 25, 2008, and on August 5, 2009 it was revealed that the new events center was to be named Amway Center. After much anticipation throughout Central Florida, construction on this massive undertaking is nearly complete, with a scheduled opening on October 10, 2010. Amway Center will be home to the Orlando Magic and will compete to host major national events, concerts and family shows. The City of Or-

Gary Sain

styletome.com

lando will operate the new events center, while the community will own the facility. The Magic have been major financial participants in the public-private partnership — contributing $50 million toward construction of the events center, $10 million toward the arts center, and $25 million toward construction of five community recreation centers. A large portion of the funding is derived from Orange County’s Tourist Development Tax which is levied on hotel stays. Heralded throughout the destination as an excellent stimulus both to local jobs and as a boon to Orlando’s economy, the facility is also filled with surprisingly modern features. In a historic move, Amway Center was designed and constructed to meet the certification criteria for an environmentally “green” building development standard. The design and construction focused on creating a sustainable site; providing water efficiency, optimizing energy and atmosphere protection, conserving materials and resources, monitoring indoor environmental quality and health, as well as selecting environmentally preferred operations and maintenance. These elements combine to create one of the most environmentally friendly, high performing professional arenas in the country.

To celebrate Central Florida’s moderate climate, the building will be filled with a variety of indoor-outdoor spaces. For instance, once guests enter the expansive, 80-foot-tall main lobby, they will be able to return to the outdoors via a spacious balcony overlooking Church Street. The arena was designed to respond to its distinct urban setting while revealing the activities occurring within. Bounded by Church Street, Hughey Avenue, South Street and Division Avenue, the arena’s primary entrance faces north to Church Street, creating a natural extension of the nearby downtown entertainment core.The Church Street entry will feature a large public entry plaza connecting the arena’s entry lobby. As Central Florida residents, we can take great pride in living in the family entertainment center of the world. The Amway Center will continue to build upon this reputation by offering us one of the finest venues ever built for the enjoyment of sports, concerts and other forms of live entertainment. The new arena is just one of many reasons why living in this great destination offers a quality of life that is truly unique and rewarding.<

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

> August is the hottest month of the year–and things are finally cooling down. But not so bad that we weren’t out and about. Life in Orlando is beautiful. We’re lucky to have all of this summer sun!

Neiman Marcus Event at WA Restaurant

In Case You Missed It News, Events + Gossip from around the city By: Alex Holland Read more at: StyleToMe.com

I was at the launch party for Maker’s 46. It’s the first new Maker’s Mark product in years. And the party was at the Grand Bohemian, no less. While I admit that I prefer wine to whiskey, I don’t mind a Mint Julep every now and then. And if Maker’s Mark released new whiskeys every month, well, I wouldn’t mind that either. Have you been to WA yet? If you love sushi like I do, you need to treat yourself. Neiman Marcus held a private reception featuring Guerlain products (one of my favorite skin care lines) at WA. It was a night of unforgettable beauties & Japanese fusion delights! When did ‘Wine Down Wednesdays’ become a thing? Regardless, we were busy enjoying the combination of fabulous wines and education during the ‘last Wednesday’ Wine Down at Spencer’s for Steaks and Chops at the Hilton Orlando. What a great event: a friendly sommelier, canapés, and halfprice wine! It’s happening again at the end of the month, so don’t miss it! The Holidays came early this year with a sneak peek at the Waldorf’s yuletide food and decor on the 29th of July. Did I mention yet that there were carolers! The Waldorf always does a fantastic job of matching style with luxury. We especially loved the gingerbread cake - and can’t wait to attend another dessert-laden event - in only a few months. Christmas is too much to happen only once a year.

styletome.com

Admit it, you love cooking shows - and you actually learned something fromRachel Ray. Well, at least, I did. But even if you can’t tell a spoon from a spatula, that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t want to learn! Cooking is fun! We were back at Spenser’s for Steaks and Chops on August 14th for their monthly cooking class. That’s two times a month at the Hilton Orlando. Maybe its time for me to do the right thing and get an apartment there. Tharoo & Co. hosted the arrival of the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster. I don’t know if you’ve heard much about the Tesla - but it’s a new car that promises zero emissions. The Roadster looks gorgeous, but we can’t wait to see what happens with the Model S. The S isn’t as sporty - its not sporty at all, in fact - but it just might change the way people drive. We’re tired of idling in traffic and polluting the environment––we need this stuff! It seemed like a lot of food and wine this month. Probably because it was. Can’t wait for next month when we do it again. Oh, and let me tell you something else - exciting stuff is happening at Orlando Style. Have you heard about Style TV yet? Stay tuned! Until next time! < Know of a not-to-be-missed event? Do Tell!

> Much like Julius Caesar’s militaries that were responsible for the spread of the Roman Empire, the salad bearing the historical political figure’s name spread a passion for food into the life of John O’Leary at the age of 15. Now the residing restaurant chef of Outlets at the Hilton Orlando, O’Leary, who credits the Caesar salad as inspiration, has become an epicurean emperor in his own right.

O’Leary is an internationally trained chef with culinary roots stemming from Chicago, West Virginia and The United Kingdom. He currently contributes to operations management at Spencer’s for Steaks and Chops and David’s Bar and Grill at the Hilton Orlando. “Like many of the top chefs at the Hilton Orlando, John has a vested interest in each menu item,” said Hilton Orlando General Manager Doug Gehret. “He spends a lot of time developing relationships with local farmers and makes sure each meal is customized whether it is being served to a party of one hundred or just a single patron.”

In his role at the Hilton Orlando, O’Leary monitors team performance, product quality and production flow. More than 85 percent of the food served at the Hilton Orlando is made on property, including jams, breads, granola and marmalades. O’Leary is also responsible for ensuring food preparation adheres to the high quality standards set by the hotel. Prior to his current position, O’Leary worked in several well-known kitchens. As a supervisor at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, he oversaw daily production and menu planning. Before returning to the States, O’Leary was the head chef at La Moinerie Hotel in Channel Islands, United Kingdom.

Capital Gains Bold, classic flavors at The Capital Grille leave eaters with a great taste in their mouths. By: Holly V. Kapherr Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> In the 70s and 80s, when the corporate “power lunch” was king, and companies charged their ribeyes to extravagant expense accounts to woo clients and college grad hotshots, the steakhouse reveled in its glory. Since then, the red leather banquettes and white linen service that marked the era of corporate boom has translated and mutated into understated, classic comfort food for a less certain economic time. What was once a splurge for payday is now a palate pleasure for any day of the week. The Capital Grille at Pointe Orlando is one of those classic spaces where you’d expect to see dimly lit wine cabinets filled with dusty, bold vintages and oversized portraits of who-knows-whom. The stained glass on the back of the banquettes speaks of Tiffany elegance from the early 1900s, though The Capital Grille at Pointe Orlando only opened its doors in 2006 – catering to patrons with an atmosphere of relaxed elegance and personalized service.

Executive Chef Matt Price

styletome.com

One of 41 acclaimed restaurants, The Capital Grille features classic steakhouse dishes

and room for over 200 guests. The restaurant includes three private dining rooms and a Chef’s Table, where guests can watch the adroit staff whiz around each other in a ballet of fresh ingredients, resulting in the production of one well-composed plate after another. With just a look around the main dining space it is immediately clear that wine is a major part of the business at The Capital Grille. Given honors by Wine Spectator for its extensive selection, The Capital Grille houses more than 325 Old and New World wines to pair for just about any preference and taste. Spanish 2008 Botani Muscat from the Malaga region pairs extremely well with the creamy freshness of a caprese-style tomato stack drizzled with 12-year aged Balsamic vinegar. The attentive staff will be more than willing to offer a taste of some of their favorites to pair, ensuring the most enjoyable experience possible. The menu at The Capital Grille at Pointe Orlando mainly sticks to the basics, but offers a twist on many favorite dishes. In-


dining ‘N style

fluences from Asia and Italy are forefront, including the porcini-rubbed yellowfin Ahi tuna, served with marinated cucumber and balsamic vinaigrette. The seared portion of fish, served thinly sliced is reminiscent of a chirashi preparation from Japan, while standing up nicely to Italian ingredients. This dish can start the night off right when served with classic Mumm Brut Prestige sparkling white wine from Napa Valley.

The chefs at Capital Grille know best, and the steak arrives at the perfect temperature alongside decadent a la carte sides like fresh creamed spinach and earthy lobster mac ‘n cheese with chunks of Maine lobster tails and claws folded into the smooth sauce. These rich dishes hold their own against the tannic 2004 La Hota Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley with cherry and leather forward notes and a super-long finish.

One of the favorites at The Capital Grille is a new take on fried calamari, a mainstay of most restaurants. The calamari is hand battered and served with spicy Italian cherry peppers and peperoncinis for heat and tang. The dish balances well with a 2007 Selbach Reisling from Mosel, Germany, to counterbalance the heat with mineral, herbaceous honey sweetness.

The Capital Grille at Pointe Orlando is an excellent addition to the International Drive area, a place where both locals and convention-goers can enjoy a delicious meal in style. Ordering dessert would be a fitting end to a quintessential steakhouse experience, and The Capital Grille has something for everyone.

A had-cut, dry-aged Kona coffee-crusted Filet Mignon served with rich shallot butter is best cooked medium-rare to medium to ensure best flavor and tenderness in the particularly lean steak. The aging process does wonders for the development of grandiose flavor in this steak.

Light and airy ricotta cheesecake is a crowdpleaser and dances lightly in the mouth with a fleeting lemon essence. Or choose a little whimsy and crack the caramel glass open on a classic crème brulée. For lovers of the chocolate-hazelnut combination, there are four layers of unbelievable nutty chocolate bliss. Chocoholics beware: the flourless chocolate espresso cake is to die for.

::

As The Capital Grille showcases its dinnerworthy wine selections, they have an equally impressive selection of dessert wines, liquors and cordials to suit dessert and coffee just as well. A wonderful all-around dessert wine is an Italian 2007 Nivole Moscato d’Asti by Michele Chiarlo. This wine is floral and brings out the depth of desserts beautifully. Executive Chef Matt Price, Sous Chef Angel Olivo and Managing Partner Randy Cook take great care to ensure that whether their guests are foodie illuminati with an eye for quality and technique or a family out for a special occasion, each dinner is an event to remember at The Capital Grille.

Jolly Rodger’s Treasure Found! Treasure Tavern By: Dana Damato Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Hosting a grand opening VIP celebration at its new location, 6400 Carrier Drive, Orlando’s finest dining attractions have just gotten better then ever. Treasure Tavern is located conveniently near Orlando’s fun spot, International Drive, and is a dining experience like no other. Owned and operated by Odien, Inc. the parent company of Pirate’s Dinner Adventure, Treasure Tavern offers an energetic evening of non-stop comedy, acrobats, live musical acts and a world class dining experience from appetizer to dessert. Unlike the ‘family’ friendly Pirate’s Dinner Adventure, Treasure Tavern is a dining experience with a twist of creative and outrageous ‘adult’ humor that will keep you laughing and engaged all night long.

The adult-only entry is presented for a crowd 18 years old and up for its mature comedy––and its assembled cast of characters, singers, dancers, and entertainers offers a memorable dining experience. As you wait for the show to begin, a famous Rum Girl will serve you a fruity and refreshing rum punch concoction. The Treasure Tavern appears like just that, a “Tavern of Treasure.” You will notice how the room resembles a bawdy cabaret experience with an interior décor of chandeliers, rum barrels, statues, paintings, and captain’s wheels. There is no doubt that the setting looks like a brothel in a showroom featuring tiered tables with leather seats accommodating about 240 guests. This unique experience is without a doubt a destination Orlando has never seen before. A jovial widowed Tavern owner, Gretta von Keagel, who leads us through the evening of food and fun, hosts the show. Made up of improv acts, a silent magician/comic, an acrobatic couple, a contortionist, and several more, the Treasure Tavern is a perfect place for a fun-filled evening without the “tourist” feel. The show is integrated with a delicious

three-course meal served on select china with gold-plated cutlery. The menu includes mixed greens, prime rib, mashed potatoes, asparagus topped with a delicious dessert of opera cake (a chocolate and coffee butter cream concoction). Vegetarian and fish entrees are also offered as an alternative choice. Being an Orlando native, I must confess that the cuisine at the Treasure Tavern was by far the best I have ever had in any of my previous dinner show experiences, kudos to the world-class chef from Brazil, Wania de Mattos. The show is best described as intimate, as the cast randomly selects guests from the crowd to participate in on and off-stage skits. The entire crowd involvement takes place throughout the evening as the cast engages them in clapping, singing, dancing and shouting. Shows will run five nights a week, with two shows on Friday and Saturday. “The reaction of the audience has been outstanding,” says Imre Baross, vice president & executive director of entertainment, for Treasure Tavern. “They are engaged and entertained and the reviews we have received have given us encouragement that Treasure Tavern will be a success.” <

What Exactly Are Zodiac Signs? By: Dikki-Jo Mullen, Astrologer Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> The familiar astrology or birth sign that nearly everyone the world over knows is really called The Sun Sign. It’s the Earth’s place in its annual journey circling around the Sun on the day of birth. When your birthday occurs the event is celebrated with candles, gifts and cake to bring good fortune to the new year to come. Astrologers call this the solar return and a special horoscope is prepared to analyze what the future holds. The Sun shows where you shine, the sense of identity. It offers a quick and easy overview of the essence of a person, Medium but in reality it is only the tip of the astrological iceberg of information. An individual 8 7 horoscope calculated for the month, day, 6 9 1 year, time and place of birth reveals much, 2 much more detail. If, 9for example, you 8are a 1 2 9 5 Taurus, yet feel different from a coworker 4 or friend who is also a Taurus, that‘s because 8 you probably have different 6Moon, Mercury, 1 7 Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and ascendant signs. 9 3or rising 7

Then there are the twelve houses of the zodiac which link to different areas of life. The aspects, the angles between the planets, show how the cosmic energies interact with each other in your life. Fixed stars, element balances, the asteroids and other factors add to the complexity of the whole picture. Please check the contributors’ page in the magazine for information about how to contact me if you would like to learn more. Residence, travel, spirituality, compatibility, career planning and numerous other important factors can be analyzed in a complete birth chart reading.

Below is an explanation of the basic traits of each Astrological Sun Sign, along with the Hard lucky day. The days of the week are named for the Sun, Moon and visible planets. The 8 1 5 2 celestial rulers of each birth sign determine 2 8 the lucky days. For example, as a Cancer, 4also called a Moonchild,3 my lucky 9day7is Monday 6 7 (or Moon Day).
