What it is:
Who would’ve thought that the nationally-acclaimed brand of cleansing, styling and restorative hair products actually started right here in South Florida? Perhaps most well-known for its Miracle Leave-In product, the brand also offers sulfate-free shampoo, silk conditioners, hair masks, several keratin products, hair spray, dry shampoo and more.
Why we’re obsessed:
To celebrate daylight saving time (my favorite time of year) we took our boat to a local outdoor restaurant and had dinner overlooking the water on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. With calamari, a crunchy tuna roll, a chilled glass of chardonnay and water views splayed in front of me, all of my senses were captivated and contented. So, while we may have lost an hour that beautiful weekend, we gained an hour of daylight, and what better way to spend it than dining al fresco. I indicated last month in our Home Issue that we take our outdoor living seriously.

Why is it that even the simplest things are never easy? Especially planning a girlfriend getaway, in spite of the fact it was just for one day and only three girls. Schedules of husbands, kids, parents and work had to be juggled just for one special day – time together at the spa, time for the three Rs: reconnection, relaxation and reflection.
Worth it? You bet. And what better venue to plan a girlfriend getaway than the Eau Spa, Palm Beach’s newest addition.
How she stays fit
“I try to find new and interesting ways to stay in shape so it doesn’t feel like work. I took up swing dancing last fall, which was so fun.”
Her favorite part of South Florida
“Most of the time, when I come to South Florida, it’s for a store appearance. So one of my favorite parts is definitely meeting the local customer and seeing what she’s wearing.”
