> Dear Readers, Recent indications finally point to things beginning to improve for our beloved city and the world as a whole. After a very brisk beginning, weather-wise, the warming sunshine has finally arrived, bringing with it the climate each of us is accustomed to here in sunny Florida. Also, the unprecedented stock market gains over the past year have given much cause for celebration, evidenced by the healthy influx of tourists patronizing our retail businesses and bringing much needed revenue to our fair city. Now, we need to see our local economy pick up and the best news here would be to know that the credit markets have begun to relax and financing for operational and new job growth continues to strengthen.

Celebrity Yo-Yo Dieters By:Varinia Pereira Read more at: StyleToMe.com

Kirstie Alley

> Kirstie Alley is on the top of the list. At the height of her acting career, she was the hot and sexy woman who wooed the heart of many of Hollywood’s leading men. It seems the last ten years have been a diet war. In 2004, she decided to try and get it under control and signed on as the spokeswoman for Jenny Craig. For two years she followed the plan and lost seventy-five pounds, displaying her new figure on Oprah and inspiring millions of women. Unfortunately in 2009 she was at her all-time heaviest and vowed to lose 70 pounds again. To chronicle her latest venture to lose weight, A&E is following her and documenting every food choice, exercise and battle of the bulge. The series, “Kirstie Alley’s Big Life” is on Sundays at 10 p.m.

Oprah

Speaking of Oprah, this billionaire is another celeb famous for the Yo-Yo diet. Her battle of the bulge began in the 80s, 1988 to be exact, when she wheeled a cartload of all the fat she lost and showed off her new svelte figure in a tiny pair of Calvin Klein jeans. Over the next 11 years, Oprah’s weight went up and down while she went from one fad diet to another – she even tried hard-core exercising and finished numerous marathons. However in 2007 she revealed that a thyroid disorder had caused her weight gain. In 2009 she opened up to readers in “O Magazine” about her endless struggle with weight and she confesses she is back to 200 pounds and says, “I’m mad at myself.”

Jessica Simpson

Janet Jackson

Brtney Spears

Jessica Simpson has always been a curvier singer, known for her sexy attributes. But controversy over her figure erupted when photos surfaced of Jessica in ‘mom’ jeans looking much larger than she did when she was a size 2 and wore daisy dukes in Dukes of Hazzard. She has been between a size 2 and size 12; depending on the various diet or fitness regimes she is on. Jessica has been seen recently looking fit and firm again and ready for her next endeavors due to a simple plan of daily exercise.

Janet Jackson was known in the 90s for her rock hard six-pack abs and muscular dancer’s body, but she has struggled to maintain her signature look. When she first hit the music scene, she was a wide-eyed and chubby-cheeked young girl, but when her video came out for “Love Will Never Do Without You,” she looked hot. In recent years she put on about 70 pounds for a movie role that fell through and then lost the weight again, proclaiming that the secret to her trademark abs was simply eating less and exercising.

The last Yo-Yo dieter is known for her love of junk food. She can be seen slyly pulling through the McDonald’s drive-thru or carrying a bag of Cheetos from the local 7-11. Who doesn’t love a little junk food though? Britney Spears began her career at the vulnerable age of 15. From that time, she has been scrutinized for her body’s ups and downs. Going from a young and naturally thin girl, to being a super hot and toned young woman, and then gaining and losing depending on her life struggles. Everyone saw her struggle with weight when a noticeably chubbier Britney donned a belly-baring outfit for her performance at the MTV Music Awards in 2007. In 2010 Britney got back onto her treadmill, hired a personal trainer and has been seen looking as toned and fabulous as ever. <

The Hot & Not So Hot Celeb Bods By: Leah Dieter Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Break out that bikini and tanning lotion! Summer is officially on its way and there are some seriously hot celebs who we very much look forward to seeing bare it all (well, almost anyway) this summer at the beach. These celebs have some of the hottest, most idolized bodies in the world and no one, not even Jack Frost, can cool them down. Don’t get me wrong, these celebrities work hard for their beautiful bods; we’re just very, very thankful that we get to admire the fruit of their labors. Of course, not every single celeb is heartbreakingly gorgeous; there are those select few that have obviously let themselves go. So, for your viewing pleasure and of course, displeasure, here are some of the best, and worst, celebrity beach bodies.

Best : )

<<

Jessica Biel This hottie, formerly best known as Mary, the oldest daughter of Reverend Camden on the WB’s hit show, “7th Heaven”, rose to the status of a sex icon in a matter of years.Today Biel has one of the most admired bodies in Hollywood. She was named sexiest woman alive in 2005 by Esquire Magazine, and was number 11 on Maxim’s Top 100 for 2009.

<<

styletome.com

<<

Mario Lopez This former “Saved by the Bell” hunk has been stealing the hearts of millions of women all around the world for years. If his amazingly chiseled physique doesn’t make you swoon, take a look at that lusciously thick hair, or his adorable dimples...pretty much every aspect of Mario screams HOT!

Jessica Alba A beautiful Cali-born actress, Jessica Alba is the fantasy of many men.After her breakout role as Max Guevara on Fox’s Dark Angel, Alba has been near unstoppable. She’s appeared in countless movies, been on Maxim’s Hot 100 list multiple times, and is currently the newest face of Revlon. Jessica and her husband, Cash Warren, were married in May of 2008 and gave birth to their baby girl, Honor Marie, a month later. I think it’s safe to say that motherhood never looked better.

<<

26

Matthew McConaughey A notorious stud and ladies man, Matthew McConaughey easily has one of the best looking bodies in Hollywood. Could it be his ripped pecs, defined abs or bulging arms that make women everywhere go crazy? Or could it be his oh-so-subtle sexy Texas accent? Definitely all of the above!

Gisele Bündchen After rocking the Victoria’s Secret runway for seven years, this Brazilian bombshell has chosen to settle down with hubby Tom Brady and their baby, Benjamin. Even after giving birth to baby Ben, Gisele still has one of the most gorgeous bodies on earth.

Worst : (

<<

<< Carrot Top From funny to frightening…that’s the only way to describe Carrot Top. Known for his quirky red hair and hilarious antics, this funny man seems to be playing a joke on us all, only this time, it involves his body. The bulging muscles and taut face, hmm… I wonder what he’s been up to? What ever it is, instead of looking better, he looks straight up freaky.

<<

Nicole Richie If there were an award for thinnest celebrity, Nicole Richie would be the top contender. It seems as if we’ve watched her waste away over the course of the past few years and quite frankly, it’s disturbing. Someone needs to tell her that although skin is in, bones aren’t, and she needs to put some weight on.

Kevin “K-Fed” Federline Remember that buff, attractive guy Britney Spears married, had two kids with, and then divorced? Yeah, this is him! It’s hard to believe that K-Fed has transformed into this severely overweight man right before our eyes. Perhaps it was his complete abomination of a music career that sent him off the deep end…who knows. The one thing we do know is that K-Fed certainly put on more than he can chew.

<<

<<

Keira Knightley This “Pirates of the Caribbean” star looks as if she’s been stranded on the ship for a little too long. Though she has always been on the slender side, Keira has dwindled down to just skin and bones. We can only hope that she’ll eat a few cheeseburgers while here in the States to put some meat on, but until then, enjoy your view of a literal walking skeleton.

Kim Cattrall “Sex in the City”... maybe ... But there certainly is no sex on the beach happening for Kim Cattrall. Her dimpled body and the oh-so-unflattering bathing suit combine to make this star look quite unappealing. Maybe Kim should stick to her character’s cityslicker wardrobe and let the bathing suits go back into the closet for a while.<

A New Kind of Living Well Dr. Deborah Harding takes healthy living to a new level with her state-of-the-art techniques and innovative treatment plans.

By: Holly V. Kapherr Read more at: StyleToMe.com

styletome.com

> With striking features and stunning figure, it’s no surprise that Dr. Deborah Harding specializes in anti-aging medicine. Her long blonde hair, bright eyes and fantastic wardrobe belie her actual age—which we won’t divulge—but suffice to say, Dr. Harding practices what she preaches.

natural aging process. “We’re not talking creams and injections here, we’re talking about internal medicine,” says Dr. Harding, though she is also licensed in those treatments as well. “That’s just the icing on the cake. My focus is what we can do on the inside to slow the aging process.”

Dr. Harding’s 25-plus years of experience have given her a chance to reevaluate how to practice medicine and how to prevent – not just diagnose – those ailments that age us. She then began working on cutting edge treatments to literally slow down the body’s

She started her practice as an internist and then moved on to studying sleep. “No one was really into sleep at that point, and I really found that our brains are more metabolically active than when we’re awake. Our brains are defragging and our bodies are

healing themselves while we sleep,” she remarks. “Our bodies secrete the most hormones while we sleep. That’s what fixes the things in our body that might be out of sorts. People who secrete normal amounts of hormones live 5-10 years longer, according to many medical studies.” Thus, Dr. Harding says, if a person has a hard time sleeping, it follows that their body would have a harder time repairing itself because less hormones would be released, leading to the kinds of ailments related to aging. “No one else is doing this in the area at the moment. Our practice is really setting the bar for anti-aging medicine in Central Florida,” says Dr. Harding. Advances in technology in the past ten years have helped Dr. Harding in her practice by providing her with new and innovative techniques to treat her patients based on factors critical to their health and the aging process. “This is not just about living longer, either. It’s about living longer well,” she says. Her real passion goes much deeper—far underneath the skin. “I want to make a real and lasting difference in my patients’ lives, and we practice medicine that will do just that from the inside out,” says Dr. Harding. She explains that in the DNA sequence, there are certain areas that determine a person’s true age. Simply, the theories behind her treatments are that if she can pinpoint the reasons why someone’s body reacts in a certain way as they age (diabetes, heart disease, dementia and other age-related ailments), she can fix those particular problems and, in essence, reverse the aging process.

When a new patient comes to Dr. Harding’s practice, he or she spends a half-day or full day undergoing a series of evaluations—a total body evaluation. Some of the things she measures: bone density, body mass composition, antioxidant levels, metabolism and comprehensive blood work that measures things like insulin and high levels of homocysteine—the amino acid related to higher instance of heart disease and stroke—among others. “We also measure a resting metabolic rate. This helps determine how many calories someone can eat and still lose weight. Most of our patients need to lose a few pounds,” says Dr. Harding. “According to many studies,” she adds, “the number one thing that slows the aging process is caloric restriction. Not just eating less, though, eating fewer calories and more nutrients.”

::

One of the reasons she left traditional medicine was because she was tired of telling people bad news. The wonderful thing about Dr. Deborah Harding’s practice is that now she gets to tell people the good news. She comments, “I love telling people that these ailments are preventable, that we can help them live a healthier, better life.” Dr. Harding is a great role model: an athlete, an intellectual and a beautiful woman. Her life is the model of what she preaches—better living through better health.<

According to many studies, the number one thing that slows the aging process is caloric

restriction. Not just eating less, though, eating fewer calories and more nutrients.

Dr. Harding not only measures her patients for ‘normal’ levels of important vitamins, organic compounds and body composition, she works to have her patients reach ‘optimal’ levels of health. “If a patient is deficient in vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium and lowers the risk of cancer, we’ll suggest that they receive shots or other treatments to reach optimal levels of vitamin D.” “These tests and evaluations help us to help our patients protect their DNA. We help them protect the thing that makes their bodies function correctly,” says Dr. Harding. “We measure things in the practice every day where we look at a person from every aspect we can to try and figure out what we can do to protect their body from the negative effects of aging.”

Stay Cool (And Fit) In The Pool By: Leah Dieter Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Looking for an energetic way to exercise during the hot summer months but don’t want to be stuck inside a stuffy gym? Take it to the pool! Exercising in the pool provides you with the benefits of a difficult workout due to the water’s natural resistance, while simultaneously keeping your body cooled down. Pool exercises are also terrific for people with arthritis and other joint issues, because it’s not as harsh on your body as high impact exercises such as running or jogging on hard surfaces, lifting weights and high impact aerobics. The pool is also versatile; you can use it to do cardio exercises, and/or resistance training to tone your muscles. For a nice cardio warm-up, try swimming laps for a few minutes. If you’re not completely comfortable with doing laps, try walking or running in place in shoulder deep water for at least twenty minutes. For a simple glute workout…kick, kick, kick! You can hold onto the side of the pool or use a kickboard; either way, get those legs moving! An exercise that works both the glutes and hips is a simple squat. While holding onto the edge of the pool, arms

styletome.com

fully extended in front of you, slowly bend your legs until you are in a sitting position. Make sure you keep your knees from going over your toes and keep your back nice and straight. Then raise yourself up slowly to a standing position, and repeat. Start with one set of 15 repetitions and work yourself up to 2, then 3 sets when you feel your body is no longer being challenged. For a triple threat workout, which works your back, shoulders, and arms, try doing pull-ups on the side of the pool. Grasp the side and lower your body as far as possible while keeping your knees bent. Then pull yourself back up again, and repeat. Again, start with one set of 15 repetitions and work yourself up to 2, then 3 sets when you feel your body is no longer being challenged. The most important things to keep in mind while doing these exercises are to be consistent and have good form. Always keep your back straight and abs taut to ensure the best, and safest, result-oriented workout. And most importantly…have fun! <

Fringe Benefits

Deep Side Ponytail

> Getting bangs is a quick way to update your ‘do, but remember that maintaining your new fringe takes time and money. Bangs need to be trimmed every two to three weeks, depending on their shape. Mini bangs, for example, will need more frequent trimmings while long, layered bangs allow for more time between visits to your favorite salon. Curly haired girls aren’t immune to the allure of bangs, nor should they be. The key is to sport long, angled bangs with those curly locks. Then, use a blow dryer and a round brush to lengthen bangs without flattening them out. And for those who want to get bangs but can’t bear to commit, try Warren Tricomi’s Instant Bangs, clip in bang extensions made of 100% human hair and available in 14 shades (although bangs can also be customized by your colorist to perfectly match your hair hue). Get ‘em for $250 at WarrenTricomi.com. Deep Side Ponytails

2010’s Hairstyles By: Carolyn Brundage Read more at: StyleToMe.com

If your go-to hairstyle happens to be your only style, you’ll love this easy to replicate ‘do from celebrity stylist Sam Brocato. Brocato created messy yet modern side ponytails for the NIMA Fall 2010 NYFW show, and gave me step by step instructions for making the model-perfect hair seen on the runway a reality. First Brocato and his crew used large barrel curling irons to curl hair in sections. Next, they created a chic hair knot and set it with Brocato’s Moveable Hold Hair Spray ($12.95 at local salons.) “The hair knot was achieved by pulling the hair from the back of the right ear diagonally across to the left nape where it was put in a small elastic for control,” explained Brocato.

“From a deep right side part, the entire front left section of the hair was draped over the left ear and into the back nape area where it was wrapped around the first pony tail beginning to create the folded look to the shape. Finally, the hair that was left out in front of the right ear was brushed back creating a very close flat effect. This remaining hair was put into the pony tail and bobby pinned in place for the final effect,” said Brocato. Wild Child

At NYFW, the models at Tibi and Tracy Reese wore wild, untamed bedhead ‘dos that boasted ringlets, waves and the like. If you’ve got natural curly hair, the look is easy to achieve: just finger comb hair and allow curls to air dry. It’s essential to use a high-quality styling product, such as Moroccan Oil Intense Curl Cream (available at local salons). This curl cream defines curls while setting your style of choice; enhancing shine and hydrating traditionally dry curly locks. But even those with pin straight hair can get the look without a perm in sight. Start by applying mousse to damp hair; I like Brocato’s Swell Volume Full Body Gel Mousse. Next, to attain volume at the root, allow hair to air dry while pinned on top of your head and then, using two different sized curling irons, curl the hair in sections, randomly alternating curling irons to create curls of different widths throughout the hair. The final look is carefree and confident, an of-the-moment style for women willing to put in the time to go beyond the typical daily ‘dos. After all, looking like you just rolled out of bed takes a lot of work! <

LOOK FABULOUS By George H. Pope, MD, FACS

AQcZ^b`O

The buzz in beauty circles is all about Sculptra, a great new product just approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Sculptra offers a brand new approach to anti-aging and is capturing unprecedented media attention. My patients love this new weapon in the anti-aging battle, because it targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging. The results arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t instant, but they last longer than anything currently on the market. It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly and can last for up to two years or more. Sculptra is an injectable, but not a filler. It is injected into areas of the face that need extra volume, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very different product than ones that have been on the market until now. It works by replacing lost collagen. This resulting reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow-to-deep facial wrinkles and folds that have depleted over time. The collagen beneath the skin is a key element that provides volume and gives shape to your face. At about age 30, collagen begins to break down, leaving wrinkles, lines and folds that worsen with time. SculptraAesthetic contains poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA. It has been used for many years in dissolvable stitches and medical implants, so it will not harm your body. Most patients have a series of three injection sessions over a few months.The time between injection sessions gives the product enough time to work so your treatments can be fine-tuned.

Visit our Web site, www.orlandoplasticsurgerycenter.com, to see dramatic before and after patients taken over the course of 20 months. E-mail your questions to drpope@orlanodorlandoplasticsurgerycenter.com or call 407.857.6261 for more information. 3872 Oakwater Circle at S. Orange Avenue Look your best with the latest cosmetic procedures and products. This issue: SculptraAesthetic, the new age of anti-age. Dr. George Pope is a board certified plastic surgeon in Orlando

> Koenigsegg celebrate 15 years of making dream cars, by unleashing their latest jewel - the Koenigsegg Agera. A new supercar aimed to take the Koenigsegg experience to the next level, both on the road and the track. Agera, the Swedish verb “to act”, has been chosen as the name for Koenigsegg’s latest super creation, as it symbolizes the Koenigsegg philosophy well. Koenigsegg is always striving forward, seeking challenges beyond limitations. The new supercar Agera is an outcome of that creative process and its functions respond very well to the given name. The Koenigsegg Agera is a testament to time. The original shape and concept of the Koenigsegg CC, created 15 years ago, is still valid, fresh and highly competitive today.The Agera stays true to the original philosophy, shape and size of the original CC. At the same time, it looks, feels and performs like something belonging to the future, with all new content. Thanks to optimized breathing and Twin Turbo, power is now 910 hp, running on regular gas. Torque is maximum 1100 nm and is reached at 5100 rpm.There is over 1000 nm of torque available from 2680 to 6100 rpm. The Agera also features the latest in brake technology, incorporating an adjustable ABS system, 392x36 and 380x34 ventilated and drilled ceramic discs, for unparalleled braking performance and zero fade regardless of track or road condition. The new traction control is the fastest reacting in the industry, with auto adapt func-

tionality for different road conditions and driving styles as well as several manual settings. Koenigsegg has also developed a new type of interior illumination, which is the world’s frst in the car industry - Ghost light. The illumination shines through the billet aluminium buttons and surfaces by way of invisible nanotubes, creating excellent visibility of the symbols, as well as a very clean and stylish appearance, framed by an all-new carbon fibre centre console and tunnel assembly. Furthermore, the driver can easily select the information he wants displayed in front of him, on the all new multi-info cluster combined with the upgraded infotainment display, ranging from basic functionality, to G force meter, power meters, Sat-nav, music, lap-timer or compasses - to best suit the current driving conditions, be it highway cruising, touring country roads, city navigation or serious track driving. Furthermore the interior features the new Agera stitching and seams, which gives a beautiful fluidity to the interior. All in all, the Agera is created to maintain Koenigsegg’s position as one of the most engaging and top performing cars on the road, on the track, and on the planet. Still, maintaining the largest luggage space in the industry and the novel Koenigsegg doors and detachable/stowable hardtop, that really makes all Koenigsegg cars stand out. <

Fiji Islands of the South Pacific Laucala Island Report: Private Island Luxury Enhancing What Nature Created By: Cathleen K. Bode Images courtesy of: Klaus Lorke Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> A pearl is created by three unique elements coming together to produce a beautiful jewel: nature, time and an expert human hand. The private Laucala Island Resort is that luxurious pearl, set amid a lush tropical coconut plantation. The man-made structures create a seamless transition to feel at one with nature. Each luxurious villa is designed to take full advantage of the best elements of the island. From a breathtaking 360 degree view from the Hilltop Villa to the naturally carved rock pool in the Overwater Villa, painstaking efforts were considered to not only take full advantage of what nature has provided, but to enhance it. Based on traditional Fijian building techniques, the resort utilizes local donga, mahogany, Fijian vesi timber, thatch and stone to create sculptural forms that enhance the space that they create. The result is a flawless transition between the untouched beauty of the island, and the luxurious private villas, lounges and restaurants. Using nature as a guide, many aspects of the villas have taken full advantage of natural rock formations to create the most unusual settings. Dining areas have been transformed from magical locations formed by nature to innovative spaces of true wonderment. All villas have private pools surrounded with generous landscaping. Wooden decks, rocks

styletome.com

and daybeds create a tropical outdoor living paradise with the pool as a focal point. Gardens and villas are illuminated at night by the traditional ceremonial lighting of the Tiki torches. Utilizing the latest in technology, there are flat panel TV’s, surround sound and entertainment iPod stations. A complete bar setup with daily canapés throughout the day, including a health bar featuring island fruit juices and freshly pressed coconut milk are a standard amenity and inclusive throughout all villas. Indoor and outdoor bathrooms are generously sized with multiple tubs and showers. Each villa provides an open-air massage pavilion and a complete outdoor dining service area. Spacious dressing rooms and varied lighting options throughout the villas allow guests to create the perfect environment for every mood. • Plantation Villas are located within the old plantation with private beaches. • Sea Grass villas are located in the tropical jungle with the sea grass bay. • Plateau Villas are situated on the Nawi hill overlooking the ocean. Peninsula Residence offers total privacy and is nestled into the headland with an uninterrupted ocean view. Babylonian style hanging walkways lead you to your relaxation and

dining rooms. Arrive by sea or land; this residence is equipped with its own boat landing. A secluded private beach with a single palm is set in the peninsula cove. The pool has been naturally carved over time into volcanic rock. Overwater Residence captures the sounds of the soothing ocean, built out over the sea where you can watch the tides come and go. Swim out from your private deck or stay back and admire the colorful coral surrounding you. You can literally feel the rhythm of the South Pacific beneath while floating on a daybed. Hilltop Residence is a resort within itself with a main residence and two guest villas. All are secluded at the highest point of Laucala lending itself to a sweeping 360-degree view over the turquoise waters and showcasing uninterrupted sunrise and sunset vistas. The natural beauty of the island’s pristine beaches, lush coconut groves, jungle peaks and rocky coves, exotic flora and fauna, make Laucala Island an extraordinary resort The vision to develop the creative use of landscape, incorporating style, luxury and privacy, bring Laucala to an environmentally seductive peak: the perfect example of imagination and nature working together.

Talk or Not? Should a Person Arrested for a Crime Tell Their Side of the Story to Law Enforcement? By: Mark NeJame Contributor: Rajan Joshi Read more at: StyleToMe.com

styletome.com

> Often, a person arrested for a crime feels compelled to explain what they did or did not do to the law enforcement officers that are arresting them. This compulsion is usually based on a mistaken belief that if they cooperate they may receive a more lenient sentence or may not be charged all together. Other times it is because the person arrested is not aware that they have the right to refuse to talk to the law enforcement officers. The old saying that the “truth will set you free” could not be further from the truth most times when a person speaks to law enforcement officers about a crime they are suspected of. There are many times law enforcement officers do arrest people based on extremely weak evidence that is otherwise insufficient to convict the person at trial. By speaking, the police hope that they will obtain a confession, obtain information they otherwise couldn’t obtain or seek inconsistencies with the statement when compared to others.

The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees the right against self-incrimination to every person that is arrested. This specifically means that a person arrested has the absolute right not to talk to law enforcement officers about the crime they are suspected of. In fact, law enforcement officers are required to inform every person they arrest of this right by reading them their Miranda Warnings, prior to questioning them. The Miranda Warnings also require the law enforcement officers to inform a person arrested that they have the right to talk to a lawyer before being questioned and have a lawyer present during any questioning. If a person invokes their right to remain silent, all questioning must cease. Similarly, if one invokes their right to an attorney, all questioning must cease. The fact that someone chooses to remain silent or requests an attorney before speaking cannot be used or brought up against the person in Court.

It is not unheard of for an innocent person arrested to confess to a crime they did not commit due to pressure from the law enforcement officers during an interview. The law also allows law enforcement to use tricks or deception, within reason, in order to obtain a confession. Also, people make mistakes out of simple nervousness when speaking with the police. They may make a good faith error when giving facts and then be perceived as lying. Police are just human and they may simply misunderstand or be confused as to the story they receive and jump to the wrong conclusion. The list is ongoing as to why one rarely benefits by speaking without an attorney to the police.

Any person arrested or suspected of committing a crime should talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney prior to deciding whether to talk to law enforcement. Most times, an attorney would advice a client not to speak to law enforcement if they are arrested. However, each situation is different and there may be times that speaking to law enforcement officers with an attorney present may ensure that criminal charges are not filed.<

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

We all got to celebrate in February during Harbor Nights Romantico, which was held at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando. Locals and tourists were decked out and looked tres chic! Sampling gourmet delicacies including food from BICE RISTORANTE and enjoying complimentary hand-rolled cigars and live jazz. March kept us on our toes - kicking off with Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer welcoming Allie Braswell as the new CEO of the Metropolitan Orlando Urban League. Tastings - A Wine Experience located in the heart of downtown, hosted the event along with the Downtown Development Board. And just down the road from Tastings, the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center housed the innovative and highly acclaimed Russian National Orchestra in what was a phenomenal and inspiring performance. Pianist phenomenon, Yuja Wang, joined the RNO and added a layer of perfection and “fearless imagination.” The event was organized by the non-profit organization the Festival of Orchestras. Orlando Fashion emerged at the 2010 Ms./ Mrs. Corporate America Pageant held at the Orange County Convention Center’s Linda Chapin Theater. Jorge Cruz, from Gucci of Mall at Millenia, co-hosted this year’s pageant. Celebrity judges such as Mablean Emphraim from Divorce Court and VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club was present as well as Orlando’s very own NFL NY Giants player Darcy Johnson. Winner of BET’s Sunday Best Y’Anna Crawley performed a riveting solo that captivated all guests. Robb & Stucky Interiors and Neiman Marcus hosted an event where we got to see the unveiling of their newest trend-setting Showcase Rooms, which combine today’s fashion “energy” with the unparalleled style of Robb & Stucky. Remember that show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy? The once star from that show, Thom Filicia, continues to share his fashion wisdom as the host of Style Network’s Dress My Nest and was part of the festivities as the celebrity guest designer who shared his raw vision and

And who could afford to miss the Art of Fashion event held at Neiman Marcus–this storewide event celebrated the remarkable visions and breathtaking designs at the forefront of modern fashion. Representatives from David Meister and Robert Graham were on hand to show off the latest with an informal but ‘hot’ fashion show! We were also treated to the bronzing bar, eyelash and color bar, fragrance bar, hand massages and an impressive Bvlgari Trunk Show, while nibbling and imbibing on some great cuisine and wines from the area’s top restaurants. And for you fashionistas out there, you might have learned about some new trends during the 48th Annual Morning Star School Auxiliary Fashion Show, gala luncheon and silent auction held at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, but in case you missed it, you’re in luck. The Prime Outlets of Orlando teamed up with celebrity fashion guru James Aguiar with Spring Essentials and host of the award winning shows Full Frontal Fashion and Style Court to find out the top five trends of the new season.Aguiar suggests sticking with ravishing ruffles, neutral colors, peek-a-boo pieces, a great spring satchel and short skirts that are right above the knee–keeping you flirty, fun and totally in style. And at Prime Outlets, you can find just the look at an affordable price. Oh Yes–ALOHA FRIDAY! It was time to celebrate the end of the work week and welcome the weekend! We put on our favorite Hawaiian dress/shirt and got ready to party. We enjoyed great food from the resort restaurants, including Emeril’s Tchoup Chop, plus tropical drinks, beer, wine and live music by Skyline 407, performing funk, dance, R&B, classic rock and beach and island favorites! So, if you’re busy schedule allows for you to attend a few of Orlando’s great events this month, do it in style! < Know of a not-to-be-missed event? Do Tell!

Similar to the Pomerol region of Bordeaux, Oak Knoll is indigenously akin in its profile as a district with its soil composition, microclimate, as well as its rural, rustic qualities. Merlot based wines of Pomerol have historically challenged the first growths of Bordeaux, a forbearer to Oak Knoll’s future.

Blackbird Vineyards Read more at: StyleToMe.com

Perched to seize the day as Oak Knoll’s foremost Merlot is Blackbird Vineyards, located in the heart of the Oak Knoll District. Since 1999, this former walnut orchard, first planted with 5717 vines two years earlier, has quietly provided fruit to many of Napa’s finest winemakers, for whom it has yielded astonishing reviews and stellar scores. Purchased by entrepreneur Michael Polenske in 2003, who recognized its potential, Blackbird Vineyards is now an ultra premium label in its own right. (Fittingly, ‘merlot’ is French patois for ‘little blackbird.’) As artisans, the Blackbird team’s goal is to create beautifully handcrafted wines that embody the best of what the Oak Knoll terroir has to offer. As Michael Polenske puts it, “Our promise is to offer a wine that represents our personal integrity and to maximize the natural advantage we have with a vineyard of truly unique character.”

Try one of these excellent wines: 2007 ILLUSTRATION NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED WINE $90 The 2007 Illustration reveals a dense nose of plum, cherry, and mulberry with hints of iris, mint and tobacco weaved throughout. Elegant flavors of red currant, coffee, licorice and tobacco deliver on the palate, offering soft texture, velvety tannins, with great complexity and length. Illustration is optimal to drink after decanting or can be laid down to develop further with time in the bottle. 2007 ARISE NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED WINE $50 The 2007 Arise reflects an aromatic nose of rhubarb, cherry, and wild raspberries.The approachable, yet dense palate is dominated by red fruits, plum, and enticing smokysavory notes. An inviting wine in its youth, Arise offers fine-grained tannins combined with impressive structure and balance. Drinking well upon release, Arise will also age beautifully with time in the cellar. 2007 PARAMOUR NAPA VALLEY PROPRIETARY RED WINE $90 The 2007 Paramour presents a generous nose of juicy, sour cherry, blueberry, tobacco and cedar. On the expressive palate, dark fruit characters meld with notes of chocolate and subtle mint. This wine offers great texture, soft tannins, and impressive balance which carry on to the polished, lingering finish. Paramour is ideal for drinking beyond the next decade.<

Taverna Opa Here’s To Life!

By: Cathleen K. Bode & Dana Damato Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> ‘Dimmed lighting, the rising sound and beat of music, a belly dancer making her entrance into the dining room casually sashaying with a display of torches aflame’; it’s now 7:00 p.m. and the entertainment is just beginning at ‘Taverna Opa’. This authentic Greek restaurant offers nothing short of an exquisite night on the town filled with delicious food, remarkable entertainment and nonstop fun. Located on Orlando’s famous strip, International Drive, this spot will intrigue you from the moment you walk in the door. From the detailed old world décor to the upbeat mix of Greek and contemporary music, the spirited atmosphere will make you feel like celebrating, with great food and a long list

of Greek wines. Although its emphasis is on having fun, ‘Taverna Opa’ selections are prepared from traditional Greek recipes; every single dish is authentic, of the highest quality and served in plentiful portions. We began our evening with a traditional appetizer, Saganaki, a Greek cheese, uniquely displayed tableside with a server’s shout of “Opa” followed by an exciting pyrotechnic flaming presentation accompanied by the aromatic pleasures of heated Metaxa brandy being wafted about. Soon thereafter, we were devouring entrée platters of Chicken and Beef Tenderloin Kabobs marinated with garlic and fresh herbs, along with similarly seasoned Lamb Chops.

OPA! The Best ‘Fun’ Restaurant In Town! - Orlando Style Magazine-

As we dined, the atmosphere became slightly subdued and the lighting slowly dimmed. A dancer sways through the crowd clapping to the music, encouraging the audience to follow along. From her costume to her dances, she portrays Greek tradition as she mounts a sturdy “ready to dance-on” table, gathers the attention of the guests and randomly selects a few to follow her lead. The smiles become laughter and grow louder as the energetic staff tosses hundreds if not thousands of napkins through the air with shrieks of “Opa” being sounded. Following dinner, we were served the signature dessert, Opa Ekmek, a delicious concoction of Kantafli shredded phyllo dough, walnuts, custard cream and whipped top-

ping as well as the universally known Baklava. Simultaneous with the sinful ‘inhalation’ of these ‘goodies’, the energy of the room begins to pulsate as the music blares, servers pull willing guests out of their chairs forming an enormous circle and everyone participates in the traditional Greek dance known as “Zorba”. The room energy continues to rise as napkins are thrown aloft and everyone shouting “Opa”!

“’Opa’, meaning to celebrate life—and celebrate we did!” OPAORLANDO.COM 407-351-8660

This true, culturally authentic restaurant will leave you with a unique and memorable experience. G.M. Vassilis Coumbaros reminded us “Opa is not only about business. It is about outstanding Greek food and ethnic entertainment that is fun for all ages, families and friends”!<

Over 300 People Attend Inaugural Auction Event Held by Baterbys Art Auction Gallery at New Facility in Delray Beach, FL More than 300 eager bidders packed the new Baterbys Art Auction Gallery facility on Jog Road to participate in an inaugural auction event. People poured in from across Delray and the Palm Beach areas to vie for original and reproduction works of art by some of the most recognizable names in 20th century fine art. Artists like Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, Yaacov Agam, Elena Bond, Peter Max and Ken Kee-

ley were represented at the sale. Bidders were favorably impressed with the high level of sophistication the gallery brought to the area. Some even appeared taken aback that a gallery of this caliber would be situated in a town like Delray, which is nicely positioned but unassuming. The Delray opening (held at what Baterbys is calling the Palm Beach County Gallery) came a week before a live and

Officers from Baterbys, as well as local dignitaries, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the event.

Internet auction held at the Baterbys main auction gallery, located at 9101 International Drive in Orlando, Fla. Many of

the same artists were offered at that event, too. For more information, please log on to www.baterbys.com.

characters and their children who may or may not have the power to destroy the universe. Like any great story, the concept has two central characters that are faced with tragedy and triumph. “Basically Coheed and Cambria play like an Adam and Eve to this crazy science fiction world that we are putting together. It is kind of like The Bible meets Romeo and Juliet meets Star Trek,” Sanchez said in an interview with “Thrasher Mag.” Their first commercially successful songs “A Favor House Atlantic” and “Blood Red Summer” off of their 2003 album, paved

> Coheed and Cambria may look like every other rock band out there with the long shaggy hair and cool rock style, but they are so much more. For those who are not yet fans of this progressive rock foursome, they are a new breed of band whose talent doesn’t rely solely on smooth vocals and catchy rock tunes, they tell an epic tale through their lyrics. Lead vocalist and guitarist Claudio Sanchez not only has a penchant for singing, but is also a bestselling author of The Armory Wars. This epic tale tells of the doomed marriage of two characters, Coheed and Cambria. The band’s music follows the story of the main

the way for the band to become stars and tell their epic tale through music. In 2005, they released the first installment of a two-part conclusion to their sci-fi storyline. The album rose all the way to number seven on Billboard’s Top 200, and solidified Coheed and Cambria’s place in the mainstream music scene. The band started off with a limited audience offering a musical style of post-hardcore rock, but their most successful album, “Good Apollo Volume One” has a progressive rock sound that appeals to a much wider audience. Their unique sound and epic storytelling has really given Coheed and Cambria an edge over other rock bands. Influenced by British music of the late 60s and early 70s as part of an attempt to gain more artistic credibility, they push the boundaries of normal verse and incorporate subtle elements of world music, classical and jazz. Coheed and Cambria really embody the progressive rock vision especially with their storytelling ability and overarching themes present in their albums. Sanchez has said in numerous interviews that he is envious of bands from his father’s era like Queen, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. But instead of copying their sound, Coheed and Cambria has managed to encapsulate a unique and moving sound of their own, with a powerful story behind it. Blame it on George Lucas for the obsession with sagas in the entertainment industry, or blame it on Hollywood’s recent fascination with origin stories, but Coheed and Cambria’s fans don’t mind. The new installation of the Coheed and Cambria saga is an origin story. Every good story has a beginning, middle and end, and since their last album concluded the story, their new album will tell of its beginnings. “Year of the Black Rainbow” is set to release this month on April 13 and a deluxe edition is available for pre-order that features a novel written by Vocalist/Guitarist Claudio Sanchez and bestselling author Peter David. For a taste of the new album, the first single, “The Broken,” is streaming on the band’s Web site. For even more of this epic band, you can see them perform on their first headline tour in over two years, at House of Blues in Orlando on April 24. <

From my heart, I want to thank each and every one of you so very much, for all of the warm responses to my editors note in our March issue of our sweet Leon. - Cathleen K. Bode

styletome.com

> Dear Cathleen, I came upon your magazine quite by accident...I was looking for a table at Brio Winter Park near the bar for a quick bite before attending the Michael Buble concert and saw two women about to vacate their table. They had two copies of Orlando Style on their table and I commented to one of them that it looked quite interesting, so she gave me a copy. It wasn’t until this morning that I actually took some time to read through it. I saw your editorial/tribute to your sweet Leon. I should’ve known better than to read the piece once I saw his picture beneath angel’s wings, but what can I say...I’m a sucker for a great dog story.

I know how much you loved (and still love) your sweet boy and your decision to help him on the next leg of his journey was bitter sweet. I have had to make that decision too many times (multiple dogs and 1 horse). A part of me goes with every single one of them, but as you know, it is the ultimate act of kindness and love.

I was so moved by your tribute, as it brought back memories of all the wonderful 4-legged “children” I have lost over the years. You love them all, and there is always a palpable void in your heart when they leave. To this day, the memories of my beloved animals can trigger moments of deep sadness and tears even though it’s been years since their passing...I wish I could tell you that it gets better with time, but I just haven’t found that to be the case. I miss every single one of them today as much as the day I lost them.

Look for your sweet Leon in your day-today life...he’s there with you...you’ll catch glimpses of him...he’s just checking on you and letting you know that he’s OK.

There are those that believe animals are soulless, that when they die, that’s it. I am NOT of that belief. I hold on to the hope that when it’s my turn to go, the first loved ones I’ll see will be all my missing fourlegged companions.

Now, I have to re-apply my make-up because I’ve cried it all away while writing you this message. :o) Have a wonderful day (great magazine, by the way)! < - Stephanie Black

Go within and reflect upon the meaning and direction of your life. Visit an antique store and gaze into a vintage mirror. Your aura will appear and reveal the best colors to select for your spring wardrobe. Lucky days: 2, 14, 30

Venus glides into a grand trine in your cosmic element, the Earth. This is brilliant for landscape design. Your legendary green thumb is at work and you can create a garden of medicinal and culinary herbs, which will be beautiful as well as useful. Family members show greater warmth and enthusiasm for work around the house. Get together to make a stone pathway around the patio or build some rustic birdhouses. Lucky days: 5, 15, 23

Venus strolls through your sector of friendships. Throughout April you will realize how much others appreciate and enjoy your company. Plan a potluck picnic to celebrate spring. Use red and white-checkered tablecloths to suggest a nostalgic mood. Encourage guests to bring recipes to share. Assemble these into booklets as keepsakes. Surprise everyone by delivering the recipes by regular mail instead of on the ‘net. Lucky days: 1, 10, 21

A Sun-Mars aspect enhances and brightens your love of showmanship to a new level. You would enjoy attending a live drama presentation and mingling with the cast afterward. During free time consider volunteering at a community theater. Seek a set of comedy and tragedy or Mardi Gras masks to liven up your office. A gold charm with diamond accents worn on a chain to commemorate an important event is a treasured wardrobe accent. Lucky days: 3, 22, 29

Most of the month emphasizes upbeat grandparent and grandchild interactions. Share keepsakes, plan gatherings to honor the very old and entertain the very young. Your ruler, Mercury, goes retrograde on the 18th. A lost or misplaced object surfaces at just the right time. A long time friend remembers you with a fruit basket and a bottle of your favorite liqueur to enjoy during an impromptu visit to celebrate the spring holidays. Lucky days: 4, 16, 24

Floral Horoscopes By: Dikki Jo Mullen Read more at: StyleToMe.com

::

> The presence of flowers uplifts and commemorates memorable occasions. A bouquet brightens a dark and empty room. Flowers added to an altar, offered as a tribute or a gift express appreciation and honor. Blossoms have long been linked to the presence of higher and subtler realms. Angels, fairies and spiritual forces are attracted to the color, fragrance and life force emitted by flowers. Select the flower representing your zodiac sign. Try adding the blossoms related to your Moon sign or ascendant and then combine them with the birth sign flower of a loved one. Perhaps there is an astrological sign, which is weak in your own horoscope, but with qualities youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to develop. Place the related flower in a vase and observe the prompt changes that occur. The gentle sorcery of flowers is a beautiful and powerful way to combine the magic of plants with the celestial influences of the stars to favorably impact your world.
