Juniper on the Water -Mediterranean Style Brunch Bursting with Flavor!



Sunday Brunch

There are so many options to choose from in Miami for Sunday Brunch that it can be discouraging to venture out into unknown territory. When I was invited to brunch at Juniper On The Water, located on the beautiful Hallandale Beach intra-coastal and offering a seafood driven New American- Mediterranean menu aimed to please the palate, with a warm & welcoming ambiance – I was intrigued and had to go see what all the fuss was about!

Whether you are looking for a night of romance on the water, a casual brunch with your special someone, friends or family or a venue for special events, Juniper On The Water aims to please and they don’t disappoint.

Mediterranean food has grown in popularity as more people like myself look to improve the quality of the food they consume. Mediterranean style cooking also uses healthy ingredients and still manages to burst with flavor. My husband and I delighted in a few options from the brunch menu that I highly recommend. First, we ordered some cocktails, of-course. I had the RASBERRY CAIPIRINHA , followed by a STRAWBERRY MOJITO and the hubby had a Café Americano and an ARNOLD PALMER.

The brunch menu is so enticing we didn’t know what scrumptious items to choose from so we did the only sensible thing and ordered waaaayyyy too much… 😉 We shared the FRESH FRUIT PLATE served with Greek yogurt and honey. I ordered the LOBSTER ROLL including Fresh Main lobster, mayonnaise, siracha, celery, cilantro with a side of truffle fries. My husband enjoyed the MAHI TACOS with grilled Mahi on a corn tortilla with fresh tomato, Poblano peppers, red onions and ancho chili aioli.

For dessert we shared the decadent Orange cream and mixed berries FRENCH TOAST. And, the perfect way to top off the brunch experience was with two BELLINIS while we gazed upon the glistening water in full relaxation.

 Just in time for summer, Rodriguez and the experts at John Frieda® talk #FrizzFreeHairGoals and the tricks to achieve them – with plenty of shortcuts along the way.

John Frieda® Hair Care invented the frizz-fighting category with Frizz Ease®, the game-changing hair smoother. Gina Rodriguez happens to be really gifted at taming her own naturally wavy, frizz-prone hair. So they’ve teamed up for a new movement – the #FrizzFreeHairGoals campaign – designed to teach women everything they need to know about styling any curl, wave or ringlet.

Rodriguez will appear in a series of engaging how-to videos(like the one below) posted on John Frieda’s social channels. In each one, the popular young actress tosses vanity out the window, talking openly about her biggest hair issue—frizz—and demonstrating easy ways to achieve the most beautiful, flattering styles of the moment.

“I’ve been a devotee of John Frieda® Frizz Ease® for years,” says Rodriguez. “Since my hair’s naturally wavy, I’ve spent more than my fair share of time fighting frizz. Frizz Ease® is the only thing that can help tame frizz and leave my hair looking smooth, so this partnership feels like a natural fit. I’m excited to have the chance to show women that they don’t have to suffer from frizzy hair forever — there’s a better way to style.” 

Featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes hairstyling tutorials with Rodriguez and John Frieda® International Creative Consultant Harry Josh, the new videos show viewers how to tame their waves and ringlets, add polish to fuzzy textures and nail the latest, coolest hair looks. Bonus: In a revealing Q&A, Rodriguez will divulge how she’s upped her own frizz-fighting game (thanks to John Frieda® Frizz Ease®) and how her naturally wavy hair, which she views as part of her Puerto Rican-American identity, can be a beautiful thing.

Get Selfie-Ready Brows

Get Selfie-Ready Brows like Rimmel London‘s newest brand ambassador  Cara Delevingne! Ok, let’s face it, we may never look like the British model and actress, known for her trendsetting beauty but with the help of  Rimmel London products and expert tips from Spruce & Bond Brow Specialist, Matt Shakik we can put our best brows forward!



TIP 1) Create the shape that’s right for you!

You want to accentuate the features of your face when you shape your brows. There is no same stencil for everyone when shaping your brows, since every face is different and asymmetrical. Use your natural arches to define your unique eye shape to give them a lift.

TIP 2) Use the correct tools like Rimmel London’s BROW THIS WAY EYEBROW SCULPTING KIT


Using a powder or pencil helps you to create the fullness your brows lack due to little hair growth. You can create what would normally be brow hairs if they grew in that area. Never use a magnifying mirror, as it causes you to only see one brow at a time and not both together which creates a better match.

TIP 3) Avoid Over-Plucking and Waxing!

Do not jeopardize the structure or thickness by removing hairs that might in time give you a fuller and more complete brow. Don’t take out hairs on one side to match it up to the other if it means making the brow thinner. When it comes to an end goal with your brows give them time and let them go, it might be torture but it will be well worth the wait. Tweezing is always the best option as it allows you to remove individual hairs to achieve the best shape.

TIP 4) Choose a Color that Looks Natural as in Rimmel London’s BROW THIS WAY EYEBROW GEL


You want the color to match well enough to look natural, yet you want it to be distinct enough to contrast a little. People normally try to match their hair color, but our brows naturally look darker because they’re surrounded by paler skin.
