My Favorite Summer Fragrances That Smell Like Coconuts

Coconut is one of the top scents that immediately reminds you of a tropical vacation. Just the thought of coconuts bring me to my happy place; a beach with a piña colada in hand and the sound of the ocean waves hitting the sand on repeat in the background.

Unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to live the tropical life every day so on those days we are stuck at work and need a mental break, a little spritz of one of the coconut-infused fragrances below will instantly transport you back to a getaway island.

Celebrate Father’s Day At River Yacht Club

eb666e18f5eec217c844662cc1cf201d

River Yacht Club is a lifestyle destination that combines gastronomy, entertainment, maritime activities, retail and art into one special retreat for all urbanites. With limited options in waterfront lifestyle-oriented venues in Miami, River Yacht Club aims to enrich the local boating culture and set a significant tone for the future of the Miami River District.

River Yacht Club, the perfect waterfront destination to

celebrate the man in your life this Father’s Day!

Celebrating Life with my LOVE!

 

River Yacht Club (RYC) is a unique and visionary waterfront venture in the heart of the bourgeoning historic Miami River District. Featuring a fine dining restaurant, a stunning outdoor garden & lounge, marina and the first-ever Van Dutch Lounge perfect for brunch, lunch or dinner.

4b787125-9d21-4e45-9436-0059d4086316

“We would like to rewrite the local boating culture,” said Stephane Dupoux, the CEO of Dupoux Partners, the team behind concept and development. “Boaters have very few options for sophisticated experiences on the water.

Our aim is to be their lighthouse – one that brings elements of European lifestyle and Miami’s flavor while
respecting the heritage of this magical area on the river.”

To elevate an innovative and creative approach to the restaurant’s epicurean profile, River Yacht Club’s culinary ideology will revolve around its seasonally driven menus executed by a stellar roster of rotating, in-residence chefs. To commence the revolving chef concept, River Yacht Club commissioned Chef Michael Lewis, who formerly helmed the kitchens of Zuma and Jean Georges restaurants, to design the inaugural winter menu. The succeeding chef to begin his spring tenure as the next chef-in-residence is Australian born, award winning Chef Christopher Rendell. Rendell made his mark lending his talents to 2015 Michelin Guide recommended Flinders Lane, Manhattan, where he currently resides as co-owner & chef. Previous endeavors include Surf Lodge, Montauk and Public, NoLita as well as Mews and Whitehall in London. Additionally, he has been privileged to prepare numerous dinners for the James Beard House and received a stellar rating in the New York
Times.

“Drawing inspiration from the cuisines of Southeast Asia combined with my native Australian approach to no-fuss, bold cooking, the new spring menu at River Yacht Club will bring these ideas and flavors to life,” said Chef Rendell. “Using a wide array of the finest seafood and seasonal fruits and vegetables, the menu will highlight only the freshest ingredients in season this spring.”

Featuring a Crudo Kitchen, Grill and a Pastry Lab, the menu will meld European techniques with local fresh ingredients served family-style in a tableside presentation. Synergetic to its natural environment, the cuisine will lean heavily on the fruits of the sea and will be complemented by signature sides. A likeminded beverage program will support the effort to celebrate an ingredient-driven agenda that will work in harmony with the menu to create a memorable culinary experience. The stage for this inspired cuisine is a tropical waterfront oasis of leisure that suits its nautical roots. River Yacht Club’s modern design, which pays homage to land and sea, is seamlessly integrated into the restored
Mediterranean amphitheater-inspired courtyard that surrounds it. Simple, unexpected and sophisticated maritime touches throughout the venue preserve the boating culture that defines its DNA. The restaurant’s design features subtle maritime references including color palette, materials, ornamental details and other visual nods to the immediate environment.

1005x671.png

“The design strategy married elements of land and sea,” said Jackie Rodriguez, Dupoux Partners’ studio director. “We’ve created this unique environment by juxtaposing earthy tones and vegetation with nautical materials like copper and brass. To highlight venue’s historic nuances we’ve repurposed most of the elements we found here like pavers, raw iron gates and décor motifs.”

The landscape design is the work of internationally renowned landscape architect, Raymond Jungles, whose outdoor creations have restored nature’s balance to such landmarks as New World Symphony and Lincoln Road Mall.

“Our intent with this project was to create a natural habitat for the locals,” said Jungles.
“We see birds and humans interacting and enjoying nature. Through RYC we are advancing the landscape we have developed for the river.”

River Yacht Club has also partnered with VanDutch Yachts for the prestigious brand’s first-ever VanDutch Lounge. Located on the rooftop terrace, the lounge boasts exquisite mixology and unwinding options set against the backdrop of Miami’s most inspiring views. While the restaurant is open to public, River Yacht Club’s members are granted reservations and docking privileges plus access to club events. Additional amenities will include a concept store with an assortment of stylish merchandising as well as a transitional gallery featuring a wide range of visual arts curated by Alvaro Perez Miranda and sculptural art from Jean Pierre Botella (JPB) Art Gallery from Saint Tropez.

977x642

River Yacht Club, located at 401 SW 3rd Avenue Miami, FL 33130, serves lunch and dinner Wednesday to Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.

TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Reverse Wash System

TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Reverse Wash System is a game-changing regimen that gives your hair amazing body and bounce. Reverse your routine and say goodbye to stiff and crunchy volume.

When I first heard about Beauty-Full Volume, the only Reverse Wash System designed to give you a soft, touchable bounce – I was skeptical. I mean, it just didn’t make sense to me to use conditioner before shampoo, that is,  until I tried it and was blown away by the bounce that was left in my hair. You condition first, then shampoo- it’s that simple! I recommend that you use a wide barrel brush and high speed/heat blow dryer.

Also pay extra attention to the crown of your head for that Cindy Crawford side swept bump which is still as coveted today as it was in the 90’s.😉
