The holidays are quickly approaching and whether it s true or not everyone seems nicer kinder and even less likely to cut you off on I-95. This holiday season marks several firsts for me. My husband and I are celebrating our first Christmas in Fort Lauderdale and our first time hosting both sides of our families for Christmas dinner in our new home. I m looking forward to all the many ways to ring in the season including one of the coolest events in the country the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade This year the uber-talented Nick Cannon is the grand marshal of the parade and our December cover story. Cannon holds many titles TV Host actor comedian musician but he s truly excited about his gig as grand marshal. I can tell you his smile lights up a room and his passion and enthusiasm for his work is contagious. We ll show you what s ahead for the star in 2016 his favorite holiday memories and what he has in store for spectators on the banks of the New River. (Oh and be sure to check out Cannon s custom blinged-out shoes. He has a big shoe fetish ) Have a happy and safe holiday season. The A-List Angela s top lusts and musts this month Bangle all the way this holiday season with my fave Miami-based jewelry company Taudrey.

For more information visit outh Florida particularly Boca is a breeding ground for competitive women moms. Some of it is healthy competition some of it is downright ridiculous. I will be the first to admit that I have a competitive side and I think a little healthy competition is good for the soul but with things like Pictionary and three-legged races NOT with other women. So this mompetition thing is completely foreign territory to me. I first noticed it when my child was in preschool and the gifted testing began (oy the gifted testing). Some moms were totally open about it while others were more likely to divulge graphic details of their Brazilian bikini wax than admit they were testing their child. Some wouldn t even share who they were using or what schools they were considering. And don t even get me started on applying for the lottery schools. Mompetitiveness made its way into other areas too where you had your child s birthday party what extracurricular activities your child was involved in what you ate for lunch or didn t eat and what bag you are carrying. I was always caught a little off guard because I fully resign from this kind of competitiveness. I m the chick who buys her Lululemon from the discount section and pairs a Jennifer Haley bag with flip-flops from Target. And I like to eat. Like a lot. So I have a proposition for the ladies maybe even something to add to your New Year s resolution list (before drink less wine and after engage in more exercise) Let s squash the mompetition. Instead let s rally as individual awesome fine-just-as-weare mamas And as I channel Tom Cruise via Jerry Maguire (before his crazy Oprah couch-jumping incident) I ask Who s coming with me 24 DECEMBER 2015 LMGFL.COM Tantalizing Savings My little secret shhhhh...

Giorgio Bulgari (the great-grandson of Sotirio Bulgari who founded the iconic Bulgari fashion house) recently took over as creative director of his aunt s jewelry company Marina B and launched his first collection. Marina broke away from the Bulgari family in the 1970s and started her own jewelry company. After much success and having her jewelry being worn by celebs such as Sophia Loren Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor she retired and sold her business in the 90s. Now after all these years a Bulgari is back at the helm. Giorgio s first collection Triangoli which means triangles in Italian is inspired by an archival piece a choker that Marina made in the late 70s. The triangle is something that has always intrigued me Giorgio says. It s a timeless shape. I wanted that to be the first theme I redeveloped. Giorgio hopes this new line will attract a new younger audience. The collection features 20 pieces all handcrafted in Italy using 18-karat yellow gold and pav diamonds. Prices range from 1 400 to 42 000. The collection is sold at Neiman Marcus in Fort Lauderdale Miami and Boca Raton. 18-karat yellow gold and pav diamond chandelier earrings 24 800 38 8 DECEMBER 2015 LMGFL.COM THIS WINTER FEEL FREE TO GO AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE CARIBBEAN 7 - N I G H T S F RO M MEDITERRANEAN 7 - N I G H T S F RO M ENJOY THE SPECTACULAR VIEWS FROM AN MSC CRUISE KIDS SAIL FREE 11 AND UNDER Sail away in European style to some of the most beautiful destinations in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

Very recently another option has been approved for people with less severe cases of obesity the intra-gastric balloon. This is a non-surgical procedure in which a balloon is inserted into the stomach via an endoscopy under light anesthesia. The balloon is removed in a similar way after six months and nutritional counseling continues for one year. To be a candidate Ideal candidates for bariatric surgery have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or higher as well as a weight-related condition such as diabetes sleep apnea high blood pressure or heart disease. Patients who have a BMI of 40 or higher can have the surgery even if they do not have any co-existing conditions. Additionally for consideration of the intragastric balloon candidates would have a BMI of 30-35. Getting started At Cleveland Clinic Florida patients who inquire about bariatric surgery are asked to attend one of our free seminars usually offered twice a week so they can learn about the procedures and start to discuss insurance issues. After that they come back for an individual appointment at which a complete physical is done as well as consultation to discuss which procedure is best for them. Patients also attend a physician-directed nutrition class. The next step is to await clearance from their insurance company which may have additional requirements such as losing weight on a supervised diet prior. This can take 3 to 12 months. approval to proceed from their primary care physician and any specialists they may be seeing such as cardiologist or a diabetes specialist. Success Overall our patients lose about 70 percent following surgery. The intra-gastric balloon leads to a 25-30% of excess weight loss. Many see dramatic improvements in their other health problems as well. Patients who continue to follow the nutritional plan and come for annual follow up appointments as recommended usually keep the weight off for life. For people who need to lose weight but have been unsuccessful with diet and exercise there are procedures known as bariatric surgery that can help. Types of bariatric surgery There are three main types of bariatric surgery. All are done laparoscopically (minimally invasive) and only require the patient to be in the hospital for one day. Most patients do very well with these procedures and can return to work in about 2 weeks. The procedure with the longest track record is gastric bypass in which a small pouch is created restricting food intake and bypassing a segment of the small intestine. This limits the amount of food intake and its absorption. Another option is to have a gastric sleeve in which only the size of the stomach is limited. This option requires patients to follow dietary changes more closely.

Actor. Comedian. DJ. Rapper. Nick Cannon holds almost too many titles to count and that s just how he likes it. The busy star who hosts shows such as America s Got Talent and Wild N Out can now add one more title that until recently he probably never knew existed grand marshal of the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade. When the boats sail down Fort Lauderdale s New River on Dec. 12 boasting a fairy-tale theme filled with dragons and gingerbread houses Cannon will lead the way. He follows last year s grand marshal rapper Flo Rida who sang and danced his way down the river Cannon says he ready to top Flo s performance. I should DJ the whole time DJ and rap and get the crowd hyped Cannon says during Lifestyle s photo shoot in October. When I quickly explain to him that one of the grand marshal s jobs is to wave to spectators on shore the energetic star immediately started practicing. I ll probably dance with my wave a little bit fingers side-to-side sway a couple of points at the crowd he says with his trademark bright smile. The 35-year-old who was married to Mariah Carey 44 DECEMBER 2015 LMGFL.COM for six years and with whom he has 4-year-old twins will have no problem entertaining the crowd at the annual family-oriented event. Cannon started building a name as a multifaceted entertainer when he was just a teenager and shows no signs of slowing down. In addition to hosting TV shows doing stand-up comedy and DJing around the country Cannon has turned his attention to directing. He just completed his second film (in which he also starred) called King of the Dancehall which is based on the underground dancehall community in Kingston Jamaica and is slated for release in 2016. Cannon is also starring in Spike Lee s latest film called ChiRaq which looks at inner-city violence in Chicago and is inspired by the Greek comedy Lysistrata. And when it comes to music like most creative types Cannon says nighttime is when he does his best work in the studio. I love those hours from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. I ve done some of my most creative stuff at those hours he says. Obviously being a father those are the quiet hours when everyone else is asleep. You can connect and really listen in to your soul. It all may sound like a lot but for Cannon showbiz is about being a well-rounded entertainer. He says he grew up watching and studying old Hollywood stars with his grandmother who helped raise him. People always say You do so many different things or You have so many different jobs but I focus in on the entertainers of yesteryear Cannon says. When you think about people like Sammy Davis Jr. Bob Hope Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra... they did everything. They were great singers dancers and comedians and I feel like that s kind of what entertainment is all about. I try to be the best entertainer I can possibly be as well as an entrepreneur and businessman. I m an entrepretainer. Cannon also admits his churchgoing upbringing (his father was an associate pastor) helped too. Growing up in the church and a household full of outgoing personalities and preachers it was always a constant show he reminisces. I was always fighting for attention... to sing dance crack jokes or preach sermons. When I asked if there is anything the young star still wants to accomplish Well now that I m the Winterfest Boat Parade grand marshal I can check that off the bucket list he says with a laugh. I can t wait to experience riding the boat for the first time. Holidays with St. Nick What s your favorite holiday memory Waking up Christmas morning and still being excited about the whimsical aspect of it but still being old enough to understand the true meaning. You know those midnight church services getting to open one present on Christmas Eve and then waking up and opening them all by 6 a.m. Would you tear open a gift or carefully unwrap it Rip it to shreds.

Linder says transforming a space into an unforgettable party setting be it your home or an empty airport hangar is all about color. For example gray is trending to be a hot color for the 2016 season he says. Using a light neutral as a base really makes whatever color you choose pop. The trick is choosing a neutral that won t take away from your theme and doesn t clash. Think black white and beige. Linder also stresses that lighting is crucial. Be sure to ask your design team what type of lighting they plan on using ahead of time so you can adjust your colors properly. For example a yellow-themed party with red lighting is going to take on more of a burnt-orange color than the yellow you originally chose in standard light. Extra Tip Some of the trending colors for the 2016 season include tangerine seafoam turquoise and dark mint. LMGFL.COM DECEMBER 2015 55 56 DECEMBER 2015 LMGFL.COM Go to the best. CODE Life2 70 years.

SOLOMON OCEAN The boisterous atmosphere of the newly renovated 3030 Ocean restaurant makes for some adjustments but once settled in the only thing to focus on is Executive Chef Adrienne Grenier s adventurous new menu. The Chopped champion who previously worked under former 3030 Ocean executive chefs Paula DaSilva and Dean James Max was appointed to the restaurant following its extensive three-month renovation. Although the restaurant had Executive Chef Adrienne Grenier reopened just four days prior to my visit the wait staff was up to speed and more than knowledgeable in explaining the new menu. For my appetizer two selections from the raw bar arrived the Wahoo Sashimi and the Ahi Tuna Poke (pronounced poh-kay meaning chunk in Hawaiian). The poke was served in a bowl over crushed ice with pieces of tuna avocado sambal sauce and macademia nuts which added a nice crunch to the soft fish. What would become the most intriguing ingredient of the evening was part of the sashimi dish. When Grenier came from the kitchen to greet my table I had to ask her the secret of the small squirts of black wasabi-like paste decorating the plate. Grenier said she creates the unusual condiment (black garlic) by putting whole bulbs of garlic in a rice cooker and leaving them to ferment over the course of three weeks. The paste has a sweet almost soy-like flavor. Two dishes from the starters menu arrived next the Squid Ink Linguini with peekytoe crab served with pickled jalapenos breadcrumb toppings and uni butter (a bit rich best to be shared in small portions) and the Charred Octopus meaty and cooked to perfection on top of a bed of arugula. An almond puree for decoration on each side of the plate became a delectable sauce for dipping pieces of octopus. Grenier presented a free-range pork chop for my main dish. Locally sourced from Palmetto Creek Farms the 12-ounce chop was basted in a smoky hickory rub with roasted Brussels sprouts and a tangy mustard sauce for complement. A dessert tasting followed from 3030 s pastry chef Huma Nagi. There were three small offerings of sorbet and a crispy vanilla bean meringue but it was the todie-for chocolate budino cake a silky cross between cake and pudding that left me longing for more. Simple yet adventurous there s no doubt that each dish on the ever-changing menu is thoughtfully created. Grenier is a chef that expects you to eat with your eyes first. But don t wait to dig in. The dishes are meant to be savored in every way. 3030 Ocean at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa 3030 Holiday Drive 954.765.3030 64 DECEMBER 2015 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM DECEMBER 2015 65 66 DECEMBER 2015 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM DECEMBER 2015 67 OBSTETRICS GYNECOLOGY MENOPAUSE ADOLESCENT GYNECOLOGY Committed to deliver PERSONALIZED care with respect concern & understanding at Every Stage on your life.
