Take it outside

Running bare foot in the sand is one of the best leg toning exercises there is, and most of the models in Miami Beach take full advantage of the beach to run, play volleyball, swim, and let’s be honest – to ogle each other – which is all part of the fun.  Miami Beach has a steady stream of runners along the sand and the boardwalk every morning, with people exercising before heading off to work.  Others stretch it out in the downward dog position at sunrise along the shore.  Exercising outdoors gives your body a more balanced workout, connects you with the environment around you and disconnects you from the virtual world, not to mention artificial lighting and forced air in the gym. We surely get enough of that in the winter.  Even if all you do is go for a walk, get outdoors and feel the air on your limbs, quiet your mind and ready yourself for the day.  Make it a good one.

Spring Break at the beach


Spring break is all about boho style and sun-kissed beauty. There is nothing like wind and salty air for perfect beach hair, sandy beaches for exfoliating your feet, and lots of natural vitamin D to bring you back to your senses after a long winter.  Happy first day of Spring!

Sweet! A little slice of Paris arrives on Miami Beach, opening soon on Lincoln Road Mall; resistance is futile.

I can’t resist Laduree macarons and neither should you,  with their sophisticated flavors and     colors that can match any mood – or outfit.  Miami Beach is the next lucky recipient of a small Laduree boutique, which means a little bit of Paris, under the sun.

Online ordering is also coming soon to www.ladureeus.com
