For me the month of May represents new beginnings. In May of 2005 I moved from Raleigh North Carolina to Miami for a job at WSVN-TV. During my decade there I covered it all--life and style celebrities medical beauty breakthroughs investigations and breaking news stories. I fell in love with everything our beautiful area has to offer and eventually met and fell in love with my husband David. We recently moved north to Fort Lauderdale and in our free time you ll see us boating or paddling the waterways sampling new restaurants and taking in cultural events. I m always on the hunt for anything fun fabulous and fashionable that s totally South Florida. Now I m excited to begin a new chapter and career as EditorIn-Chief of Lifestyle. This month s issue centers on power women and moms who are making a difference. We chose Adrienne Bosh wife of Miami Heat player Chris Bosh as our cover story because of her commitment to family philanthropy and a sparkling new business venture. Bosh is not just another basketball wife and you ll see why she is a big boss with a big heart. Plus no matter how young or old you are the glamour gal may inspire you to go out and buy a tutu I embraced her girly-style and wore one for our interview We also take you on a shopping trip with another talented woman stylist-to-the-stars Elysze Held who now holds the unique title of Couture Concierge at the stunning Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour. Whether you re a lady who lunches or a man who needs some help in the fashion department she can help and you don t have to check-in to the hotel to use her services. You ll also meet a Fort Lauderdale couple thinking outside the box with a monthly delivery for foodies. And we didn t forget mom--our team handpicked the hottest gifts for every type of mom If you see me around town be sure to say hello. And please send story ideas or suggestions of people you want to see on our cover.

More Cleveland Clinic Florida Radiation Oncologist than 400 000 patients are diagnosed with cancer of the tongue and tonsils worldwide each year. These types of cancers can affect a number of body parts including oral or nasal cavities the sinuses voice box throat salivary glands lymph nodes tonsils and tongue. The good news is that most head and neck cancers are very preventable as a high percentage is tied to tobacco use. You can reduce your risk by not using tobacco products such as cigarettes cigars and chewing tobacco. Alcohol use is also a contributing factor so it is important to consume in moderation. Over recent years there has been a growing number in cases of tongue and tonsil cancer associated with the human papilloma virus (HPV). Therefore we recommend vaccinating boys and girls typically between the ages of 9 and 14 with the HPV vaccine. Vaccination to protect against HPV infection involves a series of three shots.

It s not every day I get to show up to work wearing a tutu but when you re interviewing the glamorous and ultra-feminine Adrienne Bosh it s not only acceptable it s appreciated. I love it she gushes as I do a quick twirl and we hug hello at Icebox Cafe in Miami. In case you don t go to Heat games or haven t ever caught a glimpse of Adrienne on TV the basketball wife and socialite is known for being decked out in tutus hair bows and even sequin gowns. The petite brunette admits she s taken heat in the past for being overly-glam at games and unashamedly has her own social media hashtag TeamOverdressed. Not that she has to explain anything but the proud mom credits her young daughters for giving her a new sense of fashion freedom. My little girls brought that joy back to me when I was playing dress up with them. I was like Why am I not wearing tutus more often I love this. I feel like I could take on the world she says. WHO S THE BOSH Don t mistake her tutu for weakness. Bosh is a boss and her family is the center of her attention. Adrienne and Chris married four years ago this spring and when I asked her about a small heart tattooed on her tiny wrist she told me the couple has matching tattoos as a reminder of their love. The 30-yearold wife brags that her husband is great at doing all the little things like ordering her favorite cocktail and leaving little love notes. She even framed one of his special notes and proudly displays it on her bedside table. As you can imagine it was a scary time for the tight-knit family when Chris suddenly suffered a pulmonary embolism earlier this year and was forced to sit out for the season. Adrienne says it was a great reminder that life can BOSH Her power suit A tailored pencil skirt or girly tutu. Her super power Living life unapologetically as wife of Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh mother of three philanthropist LMGFL.COM MAY 2015 35 I WANT TO GO TO THE ROOT OF THE TREE AND FOR ME THAT ROOT IS THE WOMAN. change in a minute. Especially with the scare that I just had with my husband Mother s Day is just knowing that my family is OK and they are healthy and they are happy. That is a gift. Adrienne has a full house. She is step-mom to Trinity 6 while she and Chris have two children together Jackson 3 and daughter Dylan 1. The young mom beams as she talks about the threesome and having more Bosh babies. I would love to have more. They are their own crew they take care of each other she says. Like most moms Adrienne believes she is the glue that keeps them all together from packing for away games to making sure every family moment is documented with pictures. She is quick to point out that she couldn t do it all without Chris. A woman is ten times the woman she is when she is loved by a supportive partner. I could not be half of the woman I am today if I did not have this amazing husband. He has empowered me to be the woman I am to our family. A HEART OF GOLD Adrienne isn t just super mom to her Bosh bunch she s big on giving back to other families in the South Florida community. The power couple runs their own nonprofit organization called Team Tomorrow which focuses on children and families in need. But Adrienne has her own personal passion encouraging women and bringing them together. I want to go to the root of the tree and for me that root is the woman she says. Back in May 2013 Adrienne created the First Annual Today I Can Mother s Day Brunch where she treated expectant and new mothers to a morning of pampering and gifts. It s now an annual event where she focuses on ways to help mothers even if it s just giving them a much-needed break for the day or bringing them together with other inspiring women. While the scheduled events are important this down-to-earth lady seems to love the unscripted type of charity. She performs Random Acts of Kindness where she ll do whatever tugs at her heart that particular day. She recalls a time when she was watching the late news and saw needy people standing in line 36 MAY 2015 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM MAY 2015 37 to get vouchers for a Thanksgiving meal. She says she jumped out of bed and brought over gift cards snacks and water to the crowd. Our interview took an emotional turn as she described meeting a man whose kids were sleeping in the car while he waited in the long line at one o clock in the morning just to get a voucher to feed his family. Just to see that Adrienne pauses as tears fill her eyes You can sometimes forget how rough it can be. SPARKLE AND SHINE DARLING As if she isn t busy enough Bosh is also now an entrepreneur. As a lover of all things fabulous and a reputation for throwing elaborate theme parties she is opening a new boutique caf event space in Miami Beach called Sparkle and Shine Darling. The idea came to her after a surprise trip to Paris where her girlfriends coordinated a vintage tea party with beautiful treasures they had brought from home. Her new venture will give ladies a place to escape with their friends buy a sparkly gift or throw a memorable soir e. She didn t want to give away too much but she excitedly blurted out There are glitter floors So with a husband three kids charity work and a new business how does she balance it all I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as a perfect balance. For me the balance is knowing where your priority is each day and being okay with knowing you can t necessarily do 110 percent in every area every day Adrienne says.

Parkland FL 33067 954.757.1119 LMGFL.COM MAY 2015 41 Concierge 42 MAY 2015 LMGFL.COM COU You don t have to check-in to the swanky Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour Miami to gain access to their newest lavish amenity. The ritzy resort just launched the Couture Concierge program and just like a hotel concierge can tell you where to eat or what to see their in-house concierge will guide you on where to shop and what to wear. They found the perfect person for the elite job in stylist-to-the-stars Elysze Held who says she can t wait to hand out her decades of fashion wisdom. Instead of having clients wander aimlessly in and out of stores I can target what stores fit their needs style and budget she says. Held known for her Bergdorf bob and trademark dark glasses has dressed many of South Florida s socialites and CEOs since the late 1980 s and she is a staple at New York Fashion Week. For years the sought-after stylist has refused to work exclusively with one hotel but when the Ritz came calling for her personal shopping services she admits she jumped at the chance. It s the Ritz-Carlton which symbolizes style and luxury so it was a no-brainer. Shopping In Style The new perk isn t just for jetsetters staying at the hotel. Held will assist anyone who dines drinks or has a spa appointment at the resort. And her clients aren t just the ladies who lunch . Men make up a big percentage of my clientele. I usually get their sizes likes and dislikes and then bring the clothes to them (at their homes or at the Ritz). Quite frequently I show up with my tailor she excitedly explains. She is on-call 24 7 and the respected stylist has enough pull with stores to arrange for them to open up early or stay late. She ll meet you for a one-on-one wardrobe consultation or she ll have the resort s private car service whisk you away on a shopping expedition. TURE LMGFL.COM MAY 2015 43 44 MAY 2015 LMGFL.COM I can help you find an impossible-to-find artistic piece a vintage treasure or score a great bargain. While the hotel is conveniently close to the high-end Bal Harbour shops Held is quick to point out that she will take clients anywhere from the Design District in Miami to Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. I can help you find an impossibleto-find artistic piece a vintage treasure or score a great bargain she promises. Held claims that she doesn t favor any particular store or brand and she refuses to take any kickbacks or gifts from stores so it s all about what s best for the client. Haute Happy Hour After you re done lunching and shopping with Held drop your bags at the Bistro Bal Harbour at the Ritz for their Haute Happy Hour. From 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. guests can sip on ten-dollar cocktails inspired by the latest trends from the runway. Held and the Bistro staff curated a cocktail collection of five drinks like the BB&H mojito inspired by Dolce & Gabbana s white and beige collection and the bright Masculine is Feminine cocktail made to match Viktor & Rolf s green collection. Like fashion drinks will change with the seasons. Just as fabulous as the fashionable libations are the coveted views of the Intracoastal Waterway from Bistro. After returning from a few hours of shopping with a client at Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour Held leans back and takes in the turquoise scenery from the terrace. You can t possibly feel like you ve had a frenzied shopping day when you end up here with this breathtaking view she says.

Pi on Grill located at The Terrace at Town Center in Boca Raton has created a new outdoor oasis perfect for leisurely and laid-back meals. The indoor bar now flows into an outside patio area which offers the perfect perch for guests to enjoy live entertainment in a friendly high-energy environment. Executive Chef Robert Del Giacco has created an intriguing menu that follows culinary trends while pairing new and interesting flavor profiles with classic favorites. Begin your meal with the crab fritters wrapped in a crispy nest filled with crab shrimp risotto and lobster-ginger sauce. These bites are tasty with no fillers. When it comes to greens the warm goat cheese salad with spiced pecans sun-dried cranberries and panko-crusted goat cheese is so good you may not want to share. Another pleasant surprise was the hearty chicken tortilla soup jampacked with chicken and topped with crunchy tortilla strips. For seafood with a twist consider the Asian Sea Bass. The slightly crispy bass with sherry soy broth sits nicely on top of fresh spinach seared veggies and sticky rice with a hint of mint. It s light and the mint adds just the right amount of flavor. If you re a carnivore there are two mouthwatering meat dishes to devour. The baby back ribs are slow-roasted and finished on the wood fire grill. They are basted with Pi on s housemade bbq sauce and served with shoestring fries. The smoky sweet meat falls off the bone. Another standout is the marinated skirt steak which is certified Angus beef soaked for 24-hours in a Hawaiian marinade with pineapple salsa and is accompanied by a delectable au gratin potato. I m a dessert girl at heart and I am always in search of the best bread pudding. Pi on Grill s chef has created a white chocolate bread pudding served with vanilla bean ice cream and raspberry compote. It is beyond heavenly and the moist dessert pairs perfectly with coffee. The pecan crusted key lime pie with fresh whipped cream is light and most importantly not too tart.
