the hip for 20 reps, holding the position for 10 seconds at the end of the 20 reps. Repeat these steps on the left side to give the body control and firmness. Good exercise must be complemented by good eating. It is recommended to eat four to six meals a day to increase a person’s metabolic rate. These meals should be split into three main courses with an additional two or three snacks throughout the day to keep the body going. Foods to keep in mind include protein, vegetables and healthy fats. Good sources of protein include salmon, chicken breast, beef and yogurt. Protein burns calories and boosts the metabolism.

Achieve a Happy, Healthy Summer Body By Kelly Lamano Read More at StyleToMe.com

> This summer, men and women alike should get ready to be in the best shape of their lives through some motivation, healthy eating and great ab workouts. Surprisingly, yoga is a great core workout that improves flexibility and strength. It is not just about contorting the body into crazy positions or chanting ommm. Yoga can improve breathing patterns, muscles and posture, working every part of the body. A great ab builder that also strengthens hip flexors, spine and shoulders is Boat Pose. To achieve this pose, begin seated on the floor with legs extended in front. Press the hands behind the hips into the floor. Slightly lean back, lifting through the chest. Bend at the knees, lifting feet off the floor. Make sure the thighs are at a 45-degree angle from the ground, then slowly straighten the legs. Place the arms out in front so that the palms are facing each other and that they are parallel to the floor. Hold the pose for as long as possible, but don’t strain the body if it is feeling uncomfortable or weak.To intensify the workout, lift the arms overhead. If yoga doesn’t feel right, then try the Hip-up, or side plank. This is a great ab exercise that stabilizes the spine and keeps the core engaged. Lying on the floor with the right side of the body firmly planted, prop the body up using the right forearm. Be sure to raise the hips and extend the left arm perpendicular to the floor. Lower the right hip, then raise it so that it is in line with the body. It is recommended to lower and raise

Feeling hungry or tempted by that two-scoop sundae? Keep in mind saturated fat slows down the body and gives it less energy. Instead, try consuming a healthy snack such as avocados, walnuts and trail mix. These give the body essential fats, known as polyunsaturated and monounsaturated, to burn fat and satisfy hunger. Consuming vegetables is another good choice. Try to include some in the three main meals for the day to get your boost of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Of course, drinking water is the most important thing to keep in mind. Drinking cold water has been proven to increase metabolism since the body has to work harder to warm up the water, keeping the body hydrated and active. To wrap up the complete workout and diet, be sure to get plenty of cardiovascular exercise. According to Men’s Health, the “55” workout is a great booster for aerobic training and muscle build. Begin the workout with one body-weight squat, followed by 10 pushups. Rest the body for 30 seconds, then complete two squats and nine pushups.Working up to 10 squats and down to 1 pushup, this gives the body 55 reps at the end of the exercise, strengthening the muscles. Keep a goal sheet or weekly list of things to achieve to be held accountable. It is important to remain motivated and on track to have a happy and healthy body that will say “Thank you!” in the end. <

Amazing Sights & Culinary Delights Through British Columbia and Alberta

By Robert Francis Read more at: StyleToMe.com

“The Rocky Mountaineer has been recognized by National Geographic as one of the ‘World’s Greatest Trips’ and I would agree.”

> Located between the Pacific Ocean and the coastal mountains, the City of Vancouver (pop approx 2 million) basks in the mild climate nature has provided. During the summer months the temperature rarely raises above the 70s °F and in the winter months the highs average in the 40s °F. The sophistication and the cosmopolitan vibes of Vancouver are refreshing and beautiful. Vancouver has everything a large city can offer from top-of-the-line entertainment, cuisine for the most discriminating palates, shopping, unique neighborhoods and multicultural festivals. For the sportsperson there are no limits.

STYLETOME.COM

All of this is rolled up in an atmosphere of friendliness and respect for the environment. “Vancouver will be the greenest city in the world by 2020” – Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson. THE FAIRMONT PACIFIC RIM HOTEL

Located in the heart of the historic port district, this hotel has unobstructed views of the North Shore Mountains and Harbor. The guestrooms have naturally inspired materials, comfortably furnished, copiously appointed including ultra modern technology. In the bathroom there was a Japanese Standing Soak tub and a spacious shower.

Widescreen TVs were in both bedroom and bath. What you would expect of a worldclass hotel and more. My accommodations were just the relaxation I needed after a long day of traveling. They were impeccable. There was soft music playing and time for a nap. Guests can experience three different dining areas within the hotel; there is the Lobby Lounge with nightly live music, the Giovane Café and Wine Bar and the ORU restaurant. The Lobby Lounge, popular among locals and guests alike, features up and coming talent and established performers. The Raw


TRAVEL ‘N STYLE

Bar led by Master Sushi Chef Taka is an appetizing complement serving up all kinds of fresh seafood and delicate sashimi. I can’t leave the Lobby Lounge without mentioning that at the center stage is a Fazioli piano. Known as the Ferrari in the world of pianos. Shipped from Italy, it is the best and most costly in the world. I listened to a pianist playing this superb piano, each note rang out with such clarity and distinct tones, and it mesmerized my senses. Giovane Café and Wine Bar – A daytime favorite for signature coffee and lunch. In the morning it serves up breakfast goodies (decadent sweet pastries and other treats.) In the afternoon, cakes and tarts that’ll melt in your mouth and if that wasn’t enough to beckon you in, the aroma of freshly baked bread most certainly will. In the evening, I had the pleasure of joining in on a wine seminar hosted by Sommelier, Jill Spoor and Executive Chef Darren Brown who perfectly paired wonderful regional cuisine with various Italian wines. On day 2 of my journey, off to the ORU restaurant, which serves up a varied breakfast buffet. I ordered the coconut and banana pancakes which I almost finished. The portion was HUGE but oh, so good! There are excellent water views all around this eatery. Later that same day, I had a much-needed facial at the Willow Stream Spa in the hotel. It made me so relaxed I almost fell asleep. By far the best facial I’ve had in a very long time! In the evening our party headed over to Vancouver’s popular Thai restaurant, Maenam. Chef Angus An created the perfect balance of flavors using recipes and techniques authentic to Royal Thai traditions. The spices danced on my tongue. A 4 Star presentation made for a delightful taste of Asia. THE FAIRMONT WATERFRONT HOTEL

This hotel connects by covered walkway to the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Center, the cruise ship terminal and SkyTrain. It is central to sightseeing and shopping. I loved their 50 foot heated swimming pool. The rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, opening onto panoramic views of the harbor, the mountains or the skyline. They were spacious, lavishly appointed with distinctive amenities. Also, there’s a stunning

rooftop organic garden with bee hives, the former used by the chef for various dishes and the latter with menu items like honeythemed tea and honey larger ale. The honey was refreshing and not as sweet as I thought it would be.

The Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel

Executive Chef Dana Hauser of the Herons West Coast Kitchen and Bar invited myself and my fellow travelers to her kitchen where she demonstrated how to cook various items such as scallops, salmon and other snacks and how to present them. Each item had its own texture and mouthwatering tastes. Also: Lifestyle Cuisine Plus offers great meals for guests with specific diet dependent conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and also macrobiotic, raw and vegan diets.These menus are available for all meeting and event destinations of the Fairmont Hotels around the world. ALL ABOARD THE ROCKY MOUNTAINEER

The next day I boarded the Rocky Mountaineer in Vancouver to Kamloops. The Mountaineer was spotless with a lower and top deck.The employees were attentive and polite. As soon as we pulled out of Vancouver, there was a line of people waving good-bye. This waving hello/good-bye was exhibited all along the train’s route, be it train employees, people in the towns or maintenance people working along the line. Of course we happily waived back. Out came the cameras and devises to record the magnificent wilderness and ruggedness of British Columbia. KAMLOOPS

A major economic hub in British Columbia, Kamloops is a historic rail city of approx 85,000 people.The distance from Vancouver to Kamloops is about 285 miles. I checkedin at the Hotel Five540Forty, referred to as “Kamloops best address.” A comfortable hotel with all the amenities, and centrally located within walking distance of shops, galleries and business offices. And a casino about 20-feet from the main entrance.

The Fairmont Waterfront Hotel

That evening the Tera Restaurant peaked my interest a few blocks from Hotel Five540Forty, owned by a local couple David and Andrea Tombs. I indulged in four courses, which were perfectly paired with Canadian wines. Fresh local fare from the

salad to the halibut and lamb were indeed indicative of the fine local cuisine to be had. Before we board the Rocky Mountaineer again, let me write a few words about the finest food I have had aboard any conveyance, be it ship, plane or other trains. Kudos to Chefs Frederic Couton and Jean Pierre Guerin. The wild BC sockeye salmon, the west coast chicken breast and on and on, all great dishes. My fellow passengers agreed. Thank you for your culinary expertise. The Rocky Mountaineer has been recognized by National Geographic as one of the “World’s Greatest Trips” and I would agree. ALL ABOARD THE ROCKY MOUNTAINEER TO BANFF

The distance between Kamloops to Banff is 309 miles. We continued to the Canadian Rockies and the city of Banff, Alberta. Passed Craigellachie where the last spike was driven completing the Canadian Pacific Railway. Before crossing into Banff National Park, the train travels through the Spiral Tunnels. An 8-mile stretch of railway that had a dangerous 4.4 percent grade but that was cut to 2.2 percent grade through the use of a maze of these tunnels.

Hot springs, a marvelous selection of amenities, unbelievable views can all be found in Banff and Lake Louise in the National Park.

ing the trip. I whole-heartedly endorse this trip to the magnificent Provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.

Once checked in to the Rimrock Resort Hotel, I found an unbelievable view from the large picture window of my room.

A FINAL SALUTE TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINEER

I journeyed on to “Discover Banff and Wildlife Tour, ” courtesy of Banff Lake Louise Tourism. Many breathtaking sites; you could see the glaciers snow melting and filling up the rivers, deer gracefully moving about and many camera opportunities. Great exercise too. The Coyote Deli and Grill was calling my name just in time for lunch after all that exercise! We devoured our lunch and soon headed off to the Banff Avenue Brew Pub where we enjoyed a pint of beer and toured their mini brewery. I had a Banff Avenue Blonde Ale. A smooth Kolsch style ale. Their flagship brew is Head Smashed IPA (India Pale Ale) and they have many other offerings from stout to pilsner.

Since leaving Vancouver on this trip, I have seen Black Bears, Big Horn Sheep, Elk, Caribou, Bald Eagles, Ospreys and Canadian Geese. Thought you would like to know that seeing them in their natural habitat was a very uplifting experience.

Later that evening my friends and I had dinner at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. We had a tasty assortment of hors d’oeuvres, pungent cheeses, and some bubbly in the Upper Rundel Lounge followed by a main course at the Bow Valley Grill. I had a tender, tasty halibut paired with a fine Canadian wine. We then traveled to the Walhause where we indulged in chocolate fondue need I say more? I must say the chefs outdid themselves.

Banff National Park is the FINEST alpine adventure the world has to offer. Nature at its apex. The very highlight of this journey.

I enjoyed every moment, every smile, every bite and every conversation I had with the out of country tourist I encountered dur-

The Rocky Mountaineer is not just pieces of iron and steel, nuts and bolts, molded into a powerful engine. It is the symbol of the Canadian pioneer spirit that is opening the heart of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. As the Rocky Mountaineer thunders across these Provinces, prosperity and progress follow. The natural order of the environment is respected, a miracle in itself. Everybody wins. Now the miracle continues with the new route of the Rocky Mountaineer that begins or ends in Seattle with stops in Vancouver, British Columbia, Banff and Jasper, Alberta. This route will start in August 2013. It is called the Coastal Passage.

Introducing the All New Mercedes-Benz S-Class > With the three engineering priorities “Intelligent Drive,” “Efficient Technology” and “Essence of Luxury”, the new S-Class extends the boundaries of technology on many levels. The S-Class is not just a technological spearhead for Mercedes-Benz but for automotive development as a whole. As with every generation before it, the customers expect the new S-Class to set standards across the board to retain its accolade as “the best automobile in the world.” Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars: “Rather than being about safety or aesthetics, power or efficiency, comfort or dynamism, our aspirations were ‘the best or nothing’ in every respect. No other car stands for the MercedesBenz brand promise more than the S-Class.” Perfection to the last detail results in “The Essence of Luxury.” This pursuit of the best is particularly noticeable in the interior: whether it is the seats or the air conditioning, the controls or the design, the infotainment or the comfort and safety in the rear – new ideas, their painstaking realisation, and highest perceived quality underpin the high standards that the engineers have set for the Mercedes-Benz flagship model – and for themselves. The same applies to safety. What started with PRE-SAFE® ten years ago and continued with DISTRONIC PLUS has now resulted in a new dimension of motoring: comfort and safety are merged into one. Mercedes-Benz refers to this as “Intelligent Drive.” A whole host of new systems makes the new S-Class even more comfortable and even safer. The S-Class is so efficient that it almost sounds utopian: within ten years MercedesBenz, by realising “Efficient Technology,” has almost halved fuel consumption in the 150 kW output category to 4.4 litres per 100 kilometres, for example, while the drag coefficient of the new S-Class (cd=0.24) clearly undercuts the previous model’s figure and sets a new benchmark in this segment. The

S 300 BlueTEC HYBRID is set to go even lower still with a cd figure of 0.23 thanks to additional aerodynamic optimisation measures. Furthermore, the new model is the world’s first car to dispense entirely with light bulbs in favour of LEDs, pointing the way ahead once again. Design: a modern sense of status and sensual shapes People all over the world can recognise a Mercedes-Benz straight away. The classic Mercedes face runs like a golden thread through the brand’s history. “The sophisticated design of the S-Class has always been an expression of luxury and automotive grandeur of its era. And our new S-Class continues this tradition. With its classic architecture and flowing silhouette, it is a modern embodiment of sensual clarity. The design draws a line from the sophisticated, progressive design idiom to the classic elegance of our 1930s cars – intelligence that speaks to the emotions. Stylish sportiness and sensual forms in synthesis with timeless clarity and effortless superiority make the S-Class a true design icon,” says design chief Gorden Wagener. To underline the effortless superiority of the new S-Class, and its ambition to lead, the radiator grille is now larger, upright and distinctly three-dimensional in design. With its long bonnet, the flowing, domed roof line and the gently slanting rear end, the new SClass has classic saloon proportions. The size and space have been fashioned in such

a way that the S-Class appears prestigious, and the powerful roof line is also in keeping with the car’s sporty coupé-style intentions. A character line descending discreetly from front to rear – the brand’s hallmark “Dropping Line” – elegantly structures the side wall and generates additional dynamism even when the car is at a standstill. The subtly created convex-concave effect of the entire flank gives rise to an extremely powerful and elongated car body that demonstrates both excitement and calm. The pronounced shoulder above the rear wheel adds further emphasis to the car’s athletic character. The positively exaggerated surfaces and lines of the side wall on the new S-Class generate excitement as they flow into the rear end. As well as being elegant, the slightly slanting form has aerodynamic advantages. Horizontal lines running from the boot lid to the bumper emphasise the car’s width when viewed from the rear. The hallmark signature of the Mercedes-Benz designers can also be seen in the rear windscreen, which cuts into the C-pillars. The upper area of the glass is rounded, lending it a coupé-like character. The real highlights are the new-style tail lights which are completely encased by the car body and, thanks to this solitarily integrated styling and meticulously crafted inner workings, complete the design right down to the last detail. <

CELEBRITY SOUP

Celebrity Baby Newcomers of 2013! By Riesa Pascal

> On May 30th, Channing Tatum, star of Magic Mike and the newly released White House Down, became a first time father to a healthy baby girl named Everly. Shakira, Drew Barrymore, Beverly Mitchell, Megan Fox and several other brand new mommies all got the chance to celebrate their first Mother’s Day this past May. Meanwhile, a pregnancy announcement in June by Jennifer Love Hewitt means her turn is coming up next year. With celebrity children, babies and pregnancies all over the news, it’s only fitting that we take a moment to look at some of the biggest celebrity baby newcomers of 2013. Kim Kardashian, 32 | Kanye West, 36 On June 15th, Baby KimYe officially entered the world! In late December, the entertainment world exploded with the announcement of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy with Kanye West. The tabloids wasted no time in fighting over who would get rights to the first photos of the baby and in January, the couple reportedly turned down a $3 million offer they received. One can only guess at the other outrageous offers that await the power couple now! Since their announcement, Kim’s preggo pics have taken over the web and they haven’t exactly been the most flattering. Photos of a very pregnant Kim in overly tight dresses and heels that can hardly contain her swollen feet show that some celebs don’t understand the difference between trash and class when it comes to maternity wear. In early June, the baby’s gender was revealed to be a girl during the season premier of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and earlier that same day, Kris Jenner hosted a lavish Beverly Hills baby shower for the first time mommy-to-be. Kanye is scheduled to go on tour in just a few months and TMZ has revealed that mommy and baby are already making plans to join daddy on the tour. Allegedly, Kim has even begun given orders to arrange for cribs and soundproof hotel rooms at every stop. The couple claims they want to raise their daughter out of the public eye and say they have no intentions of incorporating her into the reality TV world.

Kate Middleton, 31 | Prince William, 31 Ever the classy lady, Kate Middleton – the Duchess of Cambridge and seemingly 2013’s favorite pregnant celeb – first announced her pregnancy in early December. A gender has yet to be revealed though rumors speculate both ways. Since the announcement, Middleton has been a class act when it comes to appropriate pregnancy attire and behavior. The first time mommy’s pregnancy has been far from a pleasant experience however. The Duchess is reportedly suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a rare but extreme form of morning sickness. In addition to the illness, the joy of pregnancy was tainted early on for new parents Kate and Will due to the highly publicized suicide of a hospital nurse who unknowingly helped Australian DJs prank the hospitalized royal. This tragedy only goes to show how much media all over the world is obsessed with the Royal Family and their soon-to-be new addition. Kate and Will’s little bundle of joy is due mid-July although as Middleton has said, “apparently babies have their own agenda.”


Jessica Simpson, 32 | Eric Johnson, 33 Less than a year after giving birth to their first child, daughter Maxwell, Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson announced they were expecting again this past December. Jessica’s first pregnancy provoked a firestorm of hate comments about her weight gain that relentlessly dominated the tabloids. Not one to be stepped on, Simpson got back on her feet and worked her butt off to slim down after Maxwell was born. Her success was highly publicized in several Weight Watchers commercials that she starred in alongside Jennifer Hudson. However, a second pregnancy and the accompanying weight gain no doubt means having to lose the extra weight for a second time. In May, Simpson appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show and accidentally revealed to the world that she was expecting a boy during a string of candid comments addressing her experience with morning sickness. “I didn’t know a wiener could make me sick!” The singer said before bringing her hand to her mouth in shock. Simpson – who had previously refused to reveal the gender of her baby – laughed off the slip of the tongue, saying “Well I guess I just told the world that I’m having a boy!” The couple is expecting their baby boy to arrive any day now.

Halle Berry, 46 | Oliver Martinez, 47 On April 5th, Halle Berry revealed that she is expecting her first child with fiancé Olivier Martinez. Berry – who is already the proud mommy of a beautiful 5-year-old daughter named Nahla – is looking forward to adding a boy to the family. The pregnancy announcement came as quite a shock to the celebrity world that rarely sees women having children past their 30s. Berry, who will be turning 47 this summer, joins a small, but growing list of celebs who are embracing pregnancy and parenthood in their 40s. Mariah Carey, Tina Fey, Selma Hayek and Uma Thurman are just a few celebrity moms who gave birth over the age of 40. Regardless of Berry’s age, pregnancy looks wonderful on her as red carpet photos of her glowing complexion and bright smile have shown us. Berry’s due date is reportedly sometime in October.

Fergie, 38 | Josh Duhamel, 40 Black-Eyed-Peas singer and first time mommy, Fergie, may be famous for singing about her “lady lumps,” but now it’s all about the baby bumps! After weeks of speculation, Fergie officially announced that she and husband Josh Duhamel were expecting with the help of a creative Twitter post. “Josh & Me & BABY makes three!!! #mylovelybabybump,” she posted on February 18th, along with a shopped photo of her and Duhamel as toddlers. The couple’s baby boy is reportedly due to arrive in October.

“Black-Eyed-Peas singer and first time mommy, Fergie, may be famous for singing about her “lady lumps,” but now it’s all about the baby bumps!”

Summertime Fun with Pets > Summertime is synonymous with “Beach Time!” So this year, why not take your pet with you to the beach or park? Here are some quick tips to help your pets have as much fun as possible this summer. Not many people know this, but not all dogs know how to swim. I have a beagle that sinks like a stone. So before you pitch your pooch into the pool, make sure you follow these easy safety rules. • Check with your Veterinarian to make sure that your pet is healthy enough for some potentially rough surf, waves, or doggie paddling. By Jake White Executive Vice President & General Manager SPCA of Central Florida

• Be careful if your pet has a short nose or difficulty breathing.

Read more at: StyleToMe.com

• Long floppy ears are cute, but dry them well on the inside so they don’t get infected.

JET SKI

• Large chested dogs may have a denser body mass and they may not float very well. • Get your pet accustomed to water, before you try the ocean or a lake. Start with a kiddie pool or shallow water. • Keep them on a leash while they learn. It is easier for lifesaving. • Play in the water with your pet. You both will have fun. • Life vests are an option for pets that have a difficult time swimming. Don’t worry; they won’t be embarrassed in front of other dogs. • Don’t force your pet to do anything that they are afraid of. Reduce the trauma, and increase the fun. • If at a lake, make sure they don’t drink too

there still are great opportunities for your pet to play outside. Pick any direction and you can find a pet friendly park near you.

• Be careful in lakes for venomous snakes.

• If your dog chases birds, make sure they don’t swim too far for that seagull.

SOUTH - Mill Slough Dog Park in Kissimmee

• Don’t forget to leash your pet and cleanup as needed.

EAST - Downey Dog Park on East Colonial not far from UCF

Whether you like to watch sunrises or sunsets, you can have a great day at the beach with your furry best friend. A simple Google search found these gems in the Central Florida area. Please make sure that you follow the beach rules and you will have a great time.

WEST - Barnett Dog Park near the Central Florida Fair Grounds

• Atlantic side - Smyrna Dunes Park located in New Smyrna Beach • Gulf Side - Fort DeSoto Park located in Tierra Verde, at the end of St. Petersburg If you or your pet doesn’t enjoy the beach,

CENTRAL - Fleet Peeples Dog Park near Baldwin Park I know that there are some people that do take their cats outside to pet friendly parks. Although dogs usually dominate the parks, at times you can spot a feline amongst the canines. But if your cat is a founding member of their majority, you will need some mostly indoor activities.

::

Use the moist warm summer air to grow catnip. It can grow outside or inside in a pot. Once fully grown, it makes for a nice diversion for your cat. Since this is Florida, please keep in mind that your pet will need extra protection from the heat and dehydration. In addition, Florida has some fairly wicked spiders, snakes, scorpions… Just be careful that Fido or Fluffy isn’t playing with the wrong type of ball… python. If you want a new pet to play with either at the beach, park or in the comfort of your own home, visit the SPCA of Central Florida. They have many different breeds, colors, and ages. One is sure to fit your lifestyle perfectly. www.OrlandoPets.org.<

SPOTLIGHT ON THE LAW

WHEN AGE MEANS NOTHING & EVERYTHING - BY MARK L. HORWITZ > Last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spotlight on the Law described how a 20-year old male would receive a minimum 15 years in federal prison for having sex with a 17-year old and posting sexual pictures on the internet with consent of the 17-year old. The fact that the woman posted pictures on adult websites, and represented herself as being 18 years old, would make no difference to the case.

The jury will be told that the law is violated if the sexual partner was under 18. The fact that the defendant thought the woman was 18 and appeared to be in her early 20â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, would make no difference. The judge will tell the jury that the government does not have to prove that the defendant knew the woman was under 18.

will tell the jury that punishment is for the judge to decide later. Unfortunately, that is not correct. The judge does not decide the sentence because the law requires at least a 15 year imprisonment. There is no alternative, no chance of probation, nor any other outcome except at least 15 years in a federal prison. This may be hard for anyone to believe especially parents of a 20-year old who had sex with a 17-year old and posted pictures on the internet. The law applies to both men and women.<

What the jury will not be told is that if convicted, the young man will be sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in prison. The court

> Sun worshippers, it’s time to wake up! Skin cancer is a terrifying reality, and it’s becoming all too common. According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, a person’s risk for melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, doubles if they have had five or more sunburns. Roasting for hours in the sun is a giant price to pay for a darker skin complexion, but thankfully, we have found safe ways to get that sought after glowing skin, risk-free. 1. LIVE, EAT, AND BREATHE SUNSCREEN A tan is your body’s response to injury caused by the sun, but moderate and safe exposure to the sun can be healthy, as it provides necessary vitamin D. Contrary to popular belief, sunscreen can still get you some color, it just offers you protection at the same time. With that being said, not all sunscreen is created equal. The most important ingredient in sunscreen is zinc oxide, so look for products high in this compound to get the best protection. PRO-TIP: Be sure that your sunscreen is no more than a year old and has not been stored in high heat.This could cause the ingredients to break down.

2. RETIRE THE TANNING BEDS

have been sweating. The key is to get a little color, not sunburned!

According to the CDC, people who begin tanning younger than age 35 have a 75% higher risk of melanoma.That statistic alone should scare away whoever is still actually using these ultraviolet coffins.

PRO-TIP: Set alarms on your phone to easily keep track of time and to remind you when to reapply.

There are endless self-tanners on the market and the fear of leaving you looking like a Cheeto could scare anyone away from using them, but some are really worth the money. If you’re looking for a budget friendly option, Jergens® Natural Glow creates a tan without leaving you smelling like you’ve doused yourself in product. If you’re willing to splurge a bit, St. Tropez® Self Tan Bronzing Lotion provides an easy application, virtually streak-free.

A British study is now saying that golden tans are possible without lotions or salon visits, and it’s as easy as listening to your mother’s age old advice: Eat your veggies! Foods like spinach, carrots, plums, and tomatoes are filled with antioxidants known as carotenoids, which cause pigments to peek through your skin and give you a healthy glow that simulates a tan.

PRO-TIP: If you’re going to get a spray tan, be sure to exfoliate your skin the night before.This will get rid of all your dead skins cells and allow your spray tan to last longer.

4. STUFF YOUR FACE

Pro-tip: The study says that to get these results, you’ll need two months of a produce-heavy diet to see results, so be patient. Worst-case scenario, you lose a couple pounds from eating all those extra vegetables and get a vitamin boost! HA! <

3. CHECK YOUR WATCH It’s easy to get caught up in reading the latest issue of Orlando Style on the beach and lose track of the time, but knowing how long you’ve been exposed to the sun is vital. Doctors recommend that you reapply sunscreen every two hours, and more frequently if you’ve been in the water or

TRAVEL ‘N STYLE

My Palm Beach Getaway

By Charnel Wright

> I love a challenge. So, with a suitcase full of clothes and a heart packed tight with dogged determination, I am taking a journey down the super-highway of self-discovery – or in this case – Florida’s Turnpike. Like King Arthur, I am on the hunt for my own personal Holy Grail of sorts, the answer to a question that has eluded me for a lifetime. Can a mere mortal enter Florida society without the benefit of good breeding and loads of money? I headed two and a half hours south of Orlando to find out. I hit the ground running like a CIA operative on a mission. My assignment: to infiltrate the sphere of affluence, high living and opulence that the surrounding areas of the Palm Beaches have to offer. Omphoy Ocean Resort

Of course, any attempt at an endeavor such as becoming Palm Beach society’s new queen, requires rigorous preparation (or in my case, some serious cramming on the drive down). Here’s my list: One, remind myself over and over again to keep an ear out for last names like, Trump and du Pont. Two, if I see any said Palm Beach VIP’s, photos are a must and three, play it cool. All are factors that I began putting into practice almost immediately after arriving on Sunday afternoon where an event representing the first rung on my ladder of ascension toward Palm Beach queendom is Sunday Brunch at International Polo Club in Wellington, FL. My first stop at the private members club and the official home to the Palm Beach Polo Season is the Champagne Brunch which begins on the veranda at the stunning new Grand Pavilion. I’m reveling in all the luxurious niceties of the delectable cuisine at the lavish gourmet brunch stations. After all, I need all the nourishment I can get to keep my energy up for the Polo match that will soon follow. Although, Donald Trump is nowhere in sight, watching world-class Polo players including Aldolfo Camiaso and Nacho Figueras while hobnobbing with the area’s social elite and fashionable polo fans was priceless.

The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club

Next on the itinerary of places to see and be seen on the golden isle of Palm Beach is my resort destination for the next two days, the new Omphoy Ocean Resort on Ocean Blvd. where upon entering, to my utter delight I first spot a Picasso sketch on the wall, one of many works of art peppered throughout. As soon as I walk in I can feel the calming effect of the Zen atmosphere that puts the “om” in Omphoy.The resort spa, like no other in Palm Beach, is an eclectic mix of mind, body and soul as the spa’s “healers”—as they are affectionately called—are made up of a team of eastern medicine specialists who’s treatments send me to a place so Zen it borders on a near out-of-body experience! The spa calls its practices, Integrated Medicine. However, I like to call it nothing short of “om”-azing or how about “om”-tastic, too much? To start, resident massage therapist, Julie introduces me to a unique aromatherapy massage using a Body Bliss Tension Dissolver. My body is now truly in bliss as the nagging tension on the left side of my neck has dissolved completely. The massage was followed by a microdermabrasion facial leaving my skin taught and tight. After re-energizing my face, the esthetician switched hats and in true Omphoy fashion, brought on the Zen by giving me an energizing Reiki treatment. An acupuncture session topped off my day of pure Heaven in a spa package. Om! Feeling grounded, refreshed and present, my mind and body are now satisfied. Now, time to do the same for my stomach with dinner at Malcom’s at the Omphoy. The restaurant formally owned by celebrated chef, Michelle Bernstein, is a modern twist on classic cuisine. I was greeted right away by the visually pleasing

50 Ocean

TRAVEL ‘N STYLE

beachfront ocean view provided by ceiling to floor windows spanning the entire width of the restaurant. For my first cocktail, when in Rome do what Romans do, right? I ordered the Malcom’s Palm Beach Cosmo. I swilled down the white beverage along with the unique story about its origin.Apparently, a group of ladies who often dined here for lunch are credited with inventing the atypically colored beverage. Back when the restaurant served a signature ruby red cosmo, one of the women in the party would often accidentally spill the drink on her clothing. So, the ladies came up with a “white” cosmo recipe using white cranberry juice instead. Delish…and so was the first course. The earthy dish is one the restaurant is known for, yam ravioli cooked with vanilla, maple, pine nuts, sage, granola and pomegranate. Butter poached Maine Lobster and Coral Orzo pasta with truffle on the base tops off the main course and the evening. My stomach, appreciates you greatly, Malcom’s at the Omphoy! On my third day of trying to work my way up Palm Beach’s social ladder, I leave the Omphoy taking a twenty minute drive to quaint, yet bustling Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach where the restaurant, 75 Main caught my eye. Anyone familiar with the establishment’s longstanding northeast sister restaurant of the same name in the Hamptons knows the brand is an area mainstay in fine dining and celebrity culture on Long Island. Now, the new spot here in Florida is a nice addition to an area voted most fun small town in America. 75 Main Delray brings the same legendary elements as its counterpart, from James Beard Award winning chefs to notable celebrity sightings like Leonardo DiCaprio. I chose an outside table for lunch mainly because the peoplewatching on Atlantic Avenue is a huge plus. The Turkish cuisine adds an exotic flavor the area has not seen before. Ordering the Wasabi Icelandic Tuna with ham, dates, blue cheese and arugula, drizzled with honey, I have now discovered what is my favorite lunch dish in Delray Beach, hands down! In a feverish search to crown a winner for favorite dinner in Delray, I find myself at 50 Ocean on Ocean Blvd. Walking in close to 10pm, the atmosphere has Boston written all over it. Boston Celtics and Red Sox memorabilia adorn the walls. I’m getting a sentimental feel reminiscent of the beloved hangout depicted on the longtime running television series, Cheers. Any minute now,

I almost expect to hear someone shouting out, “Norm”! However, what really shout out at me are the diverse flavors in each dish I try. Glass Smoked Confit Duck, Asian Braised Short Ribs and Beef Carpaccio, just to name a few of the standouts. No meal is complete without ordering the house’s signature drink, Spiked Agave Lemonade. For favorite dinner, the winner is…Glass Smoked Confit Duck. Now you know what to ask for when you visit 50 Ocean. Day four brought me to West Palm. West Palm Beach and its more ballyhooed neighbor, Palm Beach, have long been locked in a symbiotic—if occasionally antagonistic— relationship. Whereas Palm Beach prides itself on privacy and discretion; its neighbor, thanks to a billion-dollar boomtown period, is proud to flaunt its monuments of commerce. One such monument, the new restaurant Pampas Grille on Okeechobee Blvd. where I learned first-hand, the menu is as diverse as the Brazilian culture. Pampas Grill is THE ultra-modern Brazilian steak house or Churrascaria. Although, the top sirloin (Alcatra) and pork sausage (A de Porco)— are my favorites on the menu--I can’t hold back from tasting each element on the seemingly never-ending parade of meats. The real surprise here is even a vegetarian (Vegan or not) can leave with a full belly.The restaurant has a lengthy list of any and every side dish you could ask for and even prepares made-to-order vegetarian meals. Do not be surprised when visiting The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club on Australian Avenue in Palm Beach, at any given time you happen to run into a myriad of high profile privacy seeking celebrities and politicians alike. Inside the historic landmark hotel’s Frédéric Fekkai Salon, you spot Oscar Award Winning Actress, Queen Latifah getting a quick blow out from one of the world-class coiffeurs. I’m told Hollywood talent just left the resort two days before I arrived. Or while walking the hallways of the tranquil 80-room vacation retreat, you find yourself waiving a quick, hello to President Bill Clinton.The former commander-n-chief, staying at the posh spot just a month before. Perhaps, while dining at the hotel’s five-star Café Boulud, legendary actor, Robert Duval is quietly enjoying a book at the table next to you. All of the above along with a plethora of other famous guests often call the ultra-private retreat their sanctuary while passing through the area.

::

My two-day stay at the luxurious boutique resort is rather fitting for the culmination of this amazing journey through Palm Beach paradise. The destination has a 24hour concierge service to help fulfill guests’ wishes. I’m bowled over with anticipation for dinner at Café Boulud. Starting with a white cosmo which to my surprise it has a unique twist. Within my martini glass sits a perfectly round ball of ice with an Orchid frozen in the middle. I quick make a mental note to try and figure out how it was done as I would love to use the same technique for entertaining at home. The Potatoes Latke Amuse Bouche came next, followed by Roasted Baby Beet salad, made with horseradish-beet purée, and mâché smoked duck breast. The smokiness of the duck breast really makes the dish irresistibly palate-pleasing. Main course: Tournedos “Rossini”- Pan Roasted Filet Mignon and Seared Foie Gras with Supergreen Spinach, Pommes Purée, and Black Truffle Beef. Now, this is what food should always taste like! I decided to retreat to my suite but ordered dessert to be delivered to the room. To my astonishment, dessert was already delivered and waiting for me when I returned to my suite. Speaking of suite, mine is a one bedroom but the resort also offers studios, as well as two and three bedroom dwellings. The meticulously restored suites, designed with irresistible charm, luxurious fabrics and mahogany millwork. The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club makes it hard to leave but easy to promise to plan a return visit. Between the impeccable service all surrounded by lushly landscaped courtyards fit for a queen, the close proximity to ocean beaches and shopping on nearby Worth Street are also a plus. The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club is the epitome of comfortable luxury and quintessential Palm Beach. It makes it hard to leave but easy to make plans for a return visit and not just to this resort but every enjoyable place I have been throughout the trip. I may not be leaving as Palm Beach society’s new queen, as first intended but I sure felt like one! < For more information please visit: www.MyPalmBeachSummer.com www.PalmBeachFL.com

CITY NEWS

In Case You Missed It Style Events, News & Gossip from Around the City By Michelle Collins Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Summer is officially in full swing, and so was Tampa’s social calendar during the month of June.Tampa locals attended events from heartwarming charity events to concerts with major names plastered on the tickets. The bay was full of opportunities to get summer heated up right from the start!

shared the stage with special guest Jerrod Carmichael, an up-and-coming, stand-up comedian from Los Angeles. The show was one of the last nights of the tour, but that didn’t stop this duo from having the crowd doubled over with cramps from laughing so hard throughout the whole show.

Tampa is always known to come together to support an amazing cause, and this month was no exception. Tampa hosted the Yoga Gives To St. Jude Kids event at Yogani Studios, Inc. This year, 24 of the best yoga studios in the country participated in the event on June 15th. The event is a one-ofa-kind, 12-hour fundraiser for the children of the St. Jude Children’s Research hospital. The pediatric cancer research center treats children fighting cancer and other deadly diseases through advanced research and exceptional care.

The Live Nation Amphitheatre at The Florida State Fairgrounds hosted numerous artists, making it by far the hottest place to be all month long. Country music made its mark in Tampa not only when Rascal Flatts performed with The Band Perry at the venue, but also when Brad Paisley and Chris Young took the stage there at the end of the month. Guests were able to finally pull out their cowboy boots from the back of their closets and throw back a few cold ones during these summer night shows. I know I can’t be the only one that hopes Tampa keeps reeling in these chart-topping performers from the country music industry!

On June 27th, Comedy Central’s funny man, Daniel Tosh rolled into town for his June Gloom Tour at the Carol Morsani Hall. Tosh is the host of Comedy Central’s Tosh.0, which features commentary on video clips, society, and celebrities. The show currently airs on Tuesday nights at 10pm ET/PT. Tosh

The biggest music party Tampa saw this month is when Pitbull and Ke$ha shared the stage on June 28th, with a night full of high energy and bass dropping jams.Wheth-

er you were watching from the amphitheatre seating or posted up in the lawn area, guests got the same experience with both artists making the venue feel more like a hot nightclub than a concert setting. Sequin-clad Ke$ha opened the show and entertained everyone with flashy costumes, drag queen dancers, and random inflatable items floating around the stage. She performed radio-hits such as “Tik-Tok” and “Blah Blah Blah,” but also surprised guests with a performance of an unreleased track entitled, “Machine Gun Love.” Miami native, Pitbull rocked the stage next with songs dedicated to luxurious liquor and his traveling of the globe. His seventh studio album, Global Warming, was released in November 2012 and featured collaborations with popular names like Shakira and Christina Aguilera. The tunes were flowing even faster than the drinks, and Pitbull’s “Don’t Stop The Party” was definitely the anthem by the end of the night for all concert guests, including myself! < Know of a Not-To-Be Missed Event?

Summer Is Here Finally! Barfly’s Guide On How To Be The Life Of Your Beach Party.

> Summer is upon us and that means one thing for a lot of us. It’s time for you to pack up the coolers and head to the beach!! There are our usual basics we all like to bring to the beach whether it is a day trip or a weekend getaway. We all have the towels, clothes, sunglasses and our favorite book or tunes packed up and ready to go. The big question is what to pack in our cooler to fill up our glasses while soaking of the sun this summer? Let the Barfly try to steer you in a couple of directions so you and your friends can be the envy of the beachgoers around you.

By Travis Joiner Read more at: StyleToMe.com

STYLETOME.COM

Let’s talk equipment first. If you want to entertain a large group of friends or just a few here are some things I think should make the list. A mixing tin like the Cobbler Shaker is nice because it is a three-piece shaker that has the strainer built in and a top to close it up for shaking. A jigger is good if

you are making drinks following any recipes you have either followed or better yet, created yourself.This will allow you to measure out precisely the ounces needed to make that special summer cocktail. A nice utility knife is nice to have because who doesn’t like a nice piece of cut fruit or twist to add to their favorite boat drink. A plastic cutting mat rather than a cutting board is perfect for the beach as well, especially if you have a flat topped cooler. I also like to have at least one plastic squeeze bottle for bringing my favorite infused simple syrup or fruit juice that might only come in a glass bottle (Got to keep that glass off the beach.) Plastic glasses have a tendency to help if you want to actually enjoy your favorite recipe so I definitely recommend those. There are other things that each of us might bring depending on what we are planning, I for one also like a muddler for macerating watermelon for my Cucumber & Watermelon Vodka Cooler.


COCKTAIL HOUR

These bar tools will ensure you have the start you need to be the most popular group on the beach. The second thing I look at is what mixers, fruits and veggies or syrups deserve a trip to our beach party. The juices are usually the core of any good drink to have beachside. Usually the core consists of orange, pineapple, grapefruit or cranberry juice. Think outside the box a little and you can surprise some people. I love to bring coconut water and ginger beer to the show because they make great options for summertime cocktails. The basics in the fruit realm are needed so pack up the lemons, limes and oranges and throw in some pineapple and grapefruits too. Mint, cucumber, basil and olives are on the checklist on the herb and veggie side for me as well. Cucumber is always nice because it has a cool, fresh flavor that is nice to have on our hot sunny summer days. Simple syrups are an easy way to pack in some sweetness as well as bring some flavor to the party. I like to use two parts water to one part sugar and bring to a boil to make my simple syrup. I also am a fan of infusing flavors by adding such things as mint, ginger or even tea leaves to the boil. Now letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about the life of the party.What liquors are making the trip? We all have our favorites to bring so I am going to just mention a few of my favorites based on the drinks I want to make while I have the sand between my toes. My first drink that screams Florida

::

summers is a Dark and Stormy. This consists of dark rum and ginger beer, Goslings Black Seal Rum is the go-to and they are now making ginger beer as well. When it comes to tequila the classic sipper seaside is your Margarita, with salt please, that has been a staple for years. I like to add a splash of o.j. to mine to round out all those flavors in the glass. When it comes to the brown spirits, most of them will end up staying home. Bourbon can be an exception because it can be a good friend of juice as well as other mixers. Rum can take on both white and dark varieties so why not pack both. I like to play with light rum by adding equal parts coconut water and pineapple juice together. Add a splash of my homemade ginger infused simple syrup and my favorite light rum and we have my Ocean Breeze Cocktail. The steps above are a loose guideline to follow so feel free to play around with what you need to have the perfect beach party. Some tools are essential as are the juices. Your favorite bottles of beach friendly liquors are your choice but you cannot go wrong with those above. I am looking forward to getting my friends together and heading out to our favorite beach for a little fun in the sun. See you out there until the sun set on another great Florida summer. <

Remember - Florida’s seatbelt law was a secondary offense when it was first signed into law, but has now been made a primary offense. There’s a likelihood that the “no texting and driving” law will eventually become a primary offense. Right now, the new statute will be very hard to enforce and is pretty toothless, not having much of a real bite. However, the new statute has more of an impact for the message it sends than any actual punitive measures.

Texting & Driving: FL Says U Can W8 By Mark NeJame Contributor Vanessa Braeley, Associate Attorney with NeJame Law Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> You’ve seen the commercials - a blank screen with the words “where u a” followed by a devastated mother telling a story about how her child died while sending this simple text message. It’s not worth it - It Can Wait. This is the message the country is conveying to drivers nationwide. Cell phone companies, parents of victims, politicians and lobbyists abound are supporting legislation that bans “texting and driving” and Florida just joined the fight. On May 28, 2013, Governor Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 52, which makes it illegal to text, email or instant message on any portable device while driving. Specifically, the Bill states: “A person may not operate a motor vehicle while manually typing or entering multiple letters, numbers, symbols, or other characters into a wireless communications device or while sending or reading data in such a device for the purpose of nonvoice interpersonal communication, including, but not limited to, communication methods known as texting, e-mailing, and instant messaging.As used in this section, the term “wireless communications device” means any handheld device used or capable of being used in a handheld manner, that is designed or

STYLETOME.COM

The new legislation takes effect on October 1, 2013, so you have a little while to get used to the idea. Most are guilty of doing it – to some of us, checking our smartphone is such a habit we may not even realize we’re doing it. So put down those handsets and adjust while you still have time. Here are a few tips that may help: • Remember phone calls? Start talking again! Take advantage of speakerphone, headsets and Bluetooth. • Using voice-to-text programs like Siri may still put you at risk of violating the law - the Bill specifically bans reading data for the purpose of nonpersonal communication. (And we all know Siritexts need a good proofread before sending...) •Turn your text and email alerts on silent before you get behind the wheel; you won’t be tempted to check incoming messages until you get out of your car. This may be a good time to implement going hands-free altogether. States like California have long-since banned the use of handheld devices while driving, and other states appear to be following suit. So phones down and eyes on the road, Florida, because it can always wait. For full text of the Bill, go to http://laws. flrules.org/files/Ch_2013_058.pdf <

PURSES

Function Over Beauty By: Ro Martinez

> It is not unusual for women to have hectic schedules and go from daycare to work, and then off to the grocery store and a dinner date all in the same day. Having a purse that can perform a variety of functions is a way of simplifying our daily routine. While a glitzy bag is attractive, what really matters to women is functionality. If a bag simply looks good but cannot hold all of our valued possessions, then it is no bargain. No one wants to carry a cute purse plus a tote bag for the items that do not fit, such as baby wipes, reading glasses or hand sanitizer. As moms, businesswomen or students we must rely on our purses to hold everything we need throughout the day. Match the Role with the Right Purse MOM Ask any mom and she will tell you 24 hours is simply not enough to do the things she needs to accomplish in one day. Some work outside the home and take care of aging parents, making the equation even more complicated. Purses must double as diaper bags and do triple duty as overnight and laptop bags. A good structured bag with compartments is as important as quality. Moms need bags with pockets on the outside as well to keep track of their keys, cell phones or other oftenused items. BUSINESS WOMAN As a businesswoman, I know the importance of being organized. My bag has to be large enough to carry my files, laptop or iPad and anything I may need to keep track of my meetings. Large is not the only criteria; the bag must also be padded to protect my electronics and have a comfortable adjustable strap for business trips. On my list of requirements is that the bag be attractive and not too heavy to carry. STUDENT Young people and the not so young who have returned to school need a purse or backpack that fills many roles and must be roomy enough to carry books, electronic equipment, note pads, pens and pencils, calculators and the list goes on. My son had a teacher who graded the students on organization and she performed regular checks on the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bags. The more organized the student was, the better they fared in her class and in my opinion later on in life. The proper bag can help you stay organized if it has compartments that are easy to reach. Since students are rough on their bags, durability is one factor to consider as well as style. TRAVELER Since I find myself traveling on a regular basis for both business and pleasure, I have tried many types of bags. I currently use a black diaper bag with interior and ex-

terior compartments as my travel bag of choice. The bag makes finding my passport and reading glasses a snap. Before you make a purchase, consider everything that must go in your travel bag: wallet, passport, reading material, lightweight sweater, snack and more. Other bag options are a duffel bag, tote bag or backpack. Your travel bag does not have to match the rest of your luggage, have fun while keeping function foremost in mind.

to find it. It is usually my cell phone, as it rings and I’m searching franticly to try and find it. This can be a thing of the past.”

DATE

“Personally, through much trial and error, I have found the purses that work the best are medium-sized to large structured ones that are able to stand up on their own. Two to three sewn-in pockets or additional smaller matching coin purses are perfect for keeping

When going on a date, you may choose a bag that is stylish and more fashion forward than any other bag. This is the only time you do not need to worry about compartments and the size since you will carry just a few items like a lipstick, powder, cell phone and keys. You will also need your license, credit card and a few dollars for tipping the valet. Beaded purses lend themselves beautifully to these occasions and are my favorite.

Enjoy your quest for the perfect purse and if you cannot decide between one and the other, why not get both? Some of us collect shoes, others purses!< What busy women are saying about their purses:

::

all my various necessities close by and easily accessible.” Ashely Strobe, Bussiness Woman “Larger bags continue to serve as double duty. No longer do women need to carry a purse and an additional bag to hold our laptop or Ipad. They have become a fashionable trend in every color, which allows us to go from work to a night out in the town. Because of the heavier load we are housing in our bags, designers are creating a stitch that is stronger and attaching sturdier straps. We can honestly say that our electronics have become as important to us as our makeup bag.” Sandra D, Fashion Stylist.

FASHION Fashion means different things to different people. But one thing is for sure, a fashionista who loves a good bag will put an entire outfit together around her purse. What is of interest to them is that their purses have style, color and stand out. My bag is big because of everything that must go in it, not the other way around. Larger bags need to have compartments to help with organization. “Imagine the amount of stress this alleviates,” shared Lindsay Nici, a busy mom. “No longer digging into your purse searching for that one item you want or that toy your child has to have to play with. If you are like me, you are constantly looking for something and can never seem

BON APPETIT

Kickin’ It Floridian Style By Kelly Lamano Read more at StyleToMe.com

> Be a true Floridian and take a short afternoon drive out to the city of Dunedin for the 4th Annual Dunedin Orange Festival. The festival includes plenty of music, food and fun activities for all ages. The small coastal city of Dunedin is the home of the Toronto Blue Jays’ spring training sessions, and is known for its orange groves and citrus packing. Artist Steven Spathelf and resident Marsha Goins were inspired one day in downtown Dunedin and decided to paint oranges around the downtown area as a public art display at five in the morning on April 13 of 2009 to see how the community would react. Thank goodness that Steven and Marsha received a remarkably positive and excited response! On July 3, 2010, the First Annual Dunedin Orange Festival took place with the help of the Historical Museum and the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce.

The food selection ranges from fresh seafood dishes, deli sandwiches to Mexican fajitas and barbeque. The food vendors compete in the first half of the festival in the “Mojo Cook Off.” Attendees of the festival are the judges who determine the winner of the cook off. They may purchase a taste ticket for $10 each and vote on the most tasty selection. Last year’s champion, Sea Sea Riders, is known for serving what is considered to be the tastiest seafood on the Gulf Coast. It’s no surprise the restaurant won the crowd over with entrees such as the Mahi Key West and the Sea Sea Saute. The Mahi Key West is coated in lime tequila cilantro butter that will melt in anyone’s mouth with mango habanero chili salsa. The Sea Sea Saute contains Gulf shrimp topped with fresh herb-lemon butter. The shrimp is bathed in white wine Kalamata olives, olive oil, feta and sun-dried tomatoes, all served on top of linguini for the perfect combination. DELICIOUS DISHES

Since then, the annual festival has thrived on its local food vendors, live music, parade, silent auction and an Orange Queen Pageant. MOJO COOK OFF

Just like any festival, the food at the Orange Festival is one of the most important aspects to keep people coming back for more.

Other competitors include Broadway Deli, Café Honeymoon, Casa Tina Mexican, Living Room, Kelly’s, Dunedin Brewery, Flanagan’s Irish Pub, Dunedin Smokehouse and Pinehurst Pub. Homemade sauce is the pride of many of these vendors. Broadway Deli offers a fresh


BON APPETIT

selection of cooked or cold food, such as barbeque, burgers, hot dogs and sandwiches. Two popular items are the Deli’s Cubans and French dip sandwiches. The Cubans contain layers of sweet ham, Genoa salami, roast pork and Swiss cheese for the perfect combination. The French dip sandwiches, better known as the Broadway Dip, include tender London broil roast beef with horseradish cheddar cheese and green onions. Each fresh sandwich at Broadway Deli is served with chips and a pickle spear to make it an appetizing lunch or early dinner. If sandwiches aren’t a favorite, Casa Tina Mexican provides quality Mexican cuisine from fajitas to enchiladas, all served with rice and beans.

::

Another solid, satisfying choice is barbeque. The Dunedin Smokehouse offers quality barbeque, serving food with freshly made barbeque sauce. The Smokehouse has a fine selection of homemade sauces, including Ancho Barbeque, Mango Mustard, North Carolina, Creole Butter, Spicy Ancho Barbeque and Habanero Hot. The Habanero Hot is considered to be quite spicy as its menu warns with two skull symbols, “Don’t say we didn’t warn you!” ORANGE FEST AFTER DARK Once the Mojo Cook Off winner has been announced, Orange Fest After Dark kicks off. Live music in the park, vendors and sunset at the Marina are just a few things to look forward to after 4 p.m.

SPICY SURPRISES A popular Mexican dish, mole poblano, has a rich mix of chocolate and chilies. It may be served with chicken or veggie enchiladas, giving guests a blend of sweet and spicy flavors. Casa Tina also offers seafood, such as the fish dish, pescado con papaya and basil sauce. The sauce, containing chilled white wine, is drizzled over a lightly pan-fried pecan crusted fish.

The festivities take place Saturday, July 6 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in Edgewater Waterfront Park. All proceeds from the festival benefit the Dunedin Historical Society and the Dunedin Chamber Foundation to inform and protect the community’s cultural heritage.

DON’T MISS THE BEAT

PINK

A Success Story of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

By Riesa Pascal Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> She has over 20 million facebook fans, a boast-worthy collection of unforgettable Billboard chart hits, and rocks bright pink hair in a way that no one else could ever pull off. She is currently on tour promoting The Truth About Love, her sixth studio album and the first to reach #1 in the United States. No doubt I’m talking about the talented artist born Alecia Beth Moore who you know better as the acclaimed and beloved bad girl, Pink. Depending how old you are, there are a variety of things that could come to mind when you think of this American singersongwriter. The first thing that comes to my mind is the fresh-faced, fluorescenthaired young girl who shocked the world with her powerful, sultry vocals in Lady Marmalade. If you’re a younger fan, your first memories of Pink might be her more recent hits such as “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” or “Try.” One of the great things about Pink is the fact that her music has successfully spanned across so many generations. From the middle and high schoolers of my day to those of 2013, Pink’s music can—and does—resonate deeply within all types of fans from the young pop enthusiast to the old rock-androll lovers and everything in between. Pink first burst onto the scene in 2000 with her solo album, Can’t Take Me Home.

DON’T MISS THE BEAT - Get

Gucci Mane Album:Trap House III

At the time she was coming fresh out of the failure of Choice, a signed female R&B group she had joined and recorded an album with, though that album was never released. Thankfully the disbandment of Choice never discouraged her funky, goget-them attitude and Pink continued to work hard towards reaching her goals and dreams. With the encouragement of Choice’s producer, L.A Reid—who also helped launch the careers of many other acclaimed artists such as Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey and Usher—Pink began to embrace her solo career. Can’t Take Me Home’s lead single “There You Go” became an instant success peaking at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, #6 in the United Kingdom and #2 in Australia. Her second single “Most Girls” did even better commercially than “There You Go” and her third single “You Make Me Sick” was yet another hit. However, we can’t continue to discuss Pink’s music career without delving into the collaborated hit song, which featured her vocals alongside three other powerhouse singers and arguably launched her rise to fame. This #1 hit from the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack has more than likely made its way into your iTunes and if you’re anything like me, possibly even a few karaoke parties as well. I’m talking about the

catchy, chart-topping soul-sisters anthem “Lady Marmalade.” The song was released in 2001 and the popular, sexy music video that followed no doubt played a part in the boosting of Pink’s career. The song earned Pink her first #1 hit and paved the way to a broader fan base and outreach for her music. It goes without saying that it’s truly an incredible feat for an artist to achieve such success within the incredibly short span of one year, but Pink was only just ‘getting the party started.’

DES GNSA E

“Get The Party Started” was the lead single off Pink’s second album Missunderztood and won Pink a top 5 spot in the US, several other countries, and a #1 spot in Australia. The album’s other singles “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” “Just Like A Pill” and “Family Portrait” were also radio chart and commercial successes. Between 2005-2009, Pink worked on a number of collabora-

tions, released her two studio albums “I’m Not Dead” and “Funhouse,” and married motocross racer Carey Hart. Although the two separated due to differences in 2008, they sought marriage counseling, reconciled in 2010 and remain happily married today with a 2-year-old daughter, Willow. In October of 2010, Pink released her first compilation CD. The album’s lead single “Raise Your Glass” was written to celebrate a decade since Pink debuted as a solo artist and also became her tenth #1 hit on the Billboard chart. The compilation album was appropriately titled Greatest Hits... So Far!!! as Pink has since shown us that she has many more hits up her sleeve. Pink’s sixth and latest studio album The Truth About Love was released in 2012 and currently has her on a successful world tour. Pink’s third single from the album “Just Give Me A Reason” features Fun’s lead singer,

Nate Ruess and became an international success. It topped charts all throughout America, Canada and Europe and peaked at top 5 in several other countries. “Just Give Me A Reason” became her fourth #1 hit on the Billboard charts with over 91 million YouTube hits and still sits at number one as I write this. Pink has had an undeniably incredible career and she continues to grow and amaze as she pursues her passion for music and exercises her singing-songwriting talent. We may not know what the future holds for Pink, but I look forward to seeing her reach decade #2 of her career, expanding her music to an entirely new generation of listeners, and all the while maintaining those killer pink highlights that we’ve all come to know and love.<

WET MY WHISTLE

Refreshing Summer Drinks Quench your thirst and beat the heat. By Rebecca Padgett Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> With summertime in Florida there comes the need for less clothes and more time by the pool. What better way to relax on a summer afternoon than with a cocktail in hand? We are all accustomed to the usual suspects with summer drinks such as margaritas and daiquiris. So, why not switch it up with a new fruity concoction. Go beyond the limits of the classic summer drink and enjoy a drink you can make in a snap. You can even pretend your very own cabana boy is hand delivering it to you. 1. GRAPEFRUIT MOJITO Make a twist on the classic summertime mojito by adding fresh grapefruit to it. Rubyred grapefruit are abundant here in Florida, but add a different taste than the citrus flavor a Florida orange would give. What you will need for this refreshing cocktail: 1 Ruby Red Grapefruit Sprigs of fresh mint Dash of agave nectar Rum Limejuice Sparkling water Begin by segmenting your grapefruit in sections into a bowl. Add the fresh mint and agave nectar into the bowl and muddle the ingredients together. Add this mixture into

STYLETOME.COM

a shaker with your desired amount of rum, limejuice and ice. Shake, pour, and enjoy!

Stir all ingredients together in a large pitcher and serve over ice. This pink drink is likely to impress even the manliest of men.

2. ZEN SANGRIA 4. ITSY BITSY BIKINI The ultimate drink to bring some relaxation into your life says it all in the name. This unique sangria takes on an Asian flare by being infused with green tea flavored vodka. 1 bottle of white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc 2 ½ cups of pomegranate juice 2 ½ cups of apricot nectar 2 ½ cups of pear nectar 1 cup of Charbay brand green-tea vodka Ice In a pitcher combine all liquids and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Serve over ice and add pear slices for garnish. 3. RASPBERRY BEER COCKTAIL Maybe you are the type that would rather sit back with a cold beer in your hand, but you are looking for a little twist.A raspberry beer cocktail might just do the trick. This unique creation contains: 1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries 4 bottles of Corona beer 1 container of frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate ½ cup of vodka

If you are trying to keep your body in prime condition this summer try the aptly titled, Itsy Bitsy Bikini.This drink contains less than 150 calories so you won’t have to feel guilty while sipping it poolside. 1 oz. X-Rated Fusion Liqueur 1 ½ oz. SKY Infusions Coconut Vodka 1 oz. diet lemon-lime soda 3 oz. light cranberry juice Shredded coconut Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, strain into a glass, and garnish with shredded coconut to your liking. With warm weather in the air and weekends spent by the pool or on a beach, a fruity and refreshing drink should be the only thing in your hand and on your mind. Whether you are battling the heat or a rough workweek these drinks are sure to help you sit back, relax and unwine, I mean unwind. <
