In their own words

posh properties

BY Beverly Mandell PA, lUxury Real ESTATE

Broker AssociATE

In 2017, I joined Posh Properties because its boutique agency experience

was in line with what I strive to provide for my clients. My background

for 29 years has been that of sales and marketing of new

products to physicians and their staff in the Pharmaceutical/Biotech

industry, while repeatedly winning sales awards for top performance. My

skills have translated into getting seller’s properties sold for top dollar,

and for buyers I have fiercely negotiated on their behalf to get them the

best deal. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, I have lived in various cities in

the nation, making Boynton Beach my home for the past 14 years. I am

enthusiastic about the growth in Boynton Beach, especially the burgeoning

Marina District in Boynton Beach with its upscale residences, restaurants,

shops and plans for the future! In addition, I also enjoy working

with buyers and sellers in Active Adult Communities as each one has its

own unique setting. I have developed many lifelong friendships from past

clients. They know they can count on me to be an excellent resource, not

only during the transaction but even after that day when we meet at the

closing table.

BY Todd Kaplan


am Todd Kaplan and I started fitness training in 1998 to help control

my acute asthma condition and improve my muscle tone to help my

breathing. Within a year my asthma had improved, and I was hooked

on fitness to look and feel better. The gym in Rockland County where I

trained needed someone to show new members the best way to improve

their workout and I took on that role. I did this for a further 2 years.

After eight years of training in New York I decided to relocate to Florida

for the warm climate and to follow my dream to be a fulltime fitness

instructor. I worked at LA Fitness for a year and then decided it was time

to train clients on my own. I have been doing this for the past 12 years

in south Florida. I want to make people aware of the benefits of having

an experienced private personal trainer they can work ‘one on one’ with

at their own pace, to improve their well-being. My schedule has limited

openings but please contact me and take advantage of my Limited Time

Offer good through April 30. Pay for One Half Hour Session-Get One at

Delray Under $50

Now that Delray Beach is a rising star in the art, culture and social scene,

it might seem a little difficult to find affordable activities, shops or

restaurants. I am here to prove you wrong. Delray Beach

offers a mix of high-end boutiques with laid-back

restaurants, and events for the whole family or

nightclubs for night owls. Here is what you can do

in Delray Beach in April for $50 or less.

Let’s get physical, physical. I want to get physical… Fact. But

please just don’t make me go to a gym. April is Physical Wellness

Month and if you’re looking for something fun to add to

your normal routine, or looking for something to kick start your

efforts, you have officially found it. The good people at Deck 84 and

PurLife Fitness Center invite you to join them for their Rise and

Grind series where they nicely trick you into working out at Veterans

Park by the Intracoastal. You’ll be privy to fresh air, highly

knowledgeable trainers and the prettiest backdrop in all the land,

which will all add to your workout enjoyment. To top it off, you’re invited

to head to Deck 84 after your workout where

you can enjoy 20 percent off your brunch bill

so you can indulge in some healthy (or not)

brunch calories. The cost is free so all you

need to do is bring yourself and some

water, and your brunch-hungry pals.

You are asked to check in at Deck 84

at 9am and the hour-long class will

wrap up at 10:30am. Sweat out last

weekend’s brunch and enjoy this

weekend’s Bloody Marys, huevos

rancheros and salmon eggs

benedict. Deck 84 is located at

840 E. Atlantic Ave. Visit www. or call (561)

264-8118 for more information.

If you love shopping, walking,

people watching and

sun, you’re in for a real treat.

April is Straw Hat Month and it’s

the perfect time to head downtown

for a casual stroll with

thousands of your local community

members. The 57th

Annual Delray Affair is the

largest arts and craft festival

in the Southeast United States

and boasts more than 600 vendors

28 | April 2019 |

featuring hand-crafts arts

and crafts, fine arts and

great food. Last year, artists

and crafters from 30

states and 12 counties exhibited

at the Delray Affair,

so it’s safe to say that

this is not your average

show. The event is held

from the Intracoastal to

Northwest Second Avenue,

so there’s tons to see, purchase or get your creative juices

flowing. The Affair has won numerous awards for its eclectic mixture

of fine art, great crafts and unique products from around the

world. So, head downtown and show your straw hat some love.

The Delray Affair is held Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13

from 10am to 6pm and Sunday, April 14 from 10am to 5pm.

Visit for more information.

Dimly lit lounge, velvet booths and

martinis we don’t have. But what

we do have is still nice and engaging.

April is Jazz Appreciation Month and

while there isn’t an actual jazz club in Delray,

we do have great musical acts that come

out of the Delray Beach Playhouse. For a few days in

April, they’re featuring Showtune: A Celebration of the

Words and Music of Jerry Herman. It’s safe to say that no

composer on Broadway has given audiences more pleasure

in the past 60 years than Jerry Herman. From his earliest

review in Greenwich Village in 1954 to the recent recordbreaking

revival of Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler, Jerry

Herman has kept American audiences smiling, swaying

and singing along. His first show Milk and Honey was successful,

but his second Hello, Dolly! was a phenomenon,

becoming the longest-running musical of its time. Later,

Jerry had comparable successes with Mame and La Cage

Aux Folles. They promise that if you love Broadway musicals,

you will love Jerry Herman’s show tunes! Tickets are


$30 and you can catch this great show from April 4 through 7

with 2pm and 8pm showtimes. The Delray Beach Playhouse

is located at 950 N.W. Ninth St. Visit

for more information and to purchase tickets.

Regardless if you call it queso, liquid gold, good-a gouda

or just cheese, we all know and love it for the way it

makes our burgers, pizzas, sandwiches and salads

taste. April is National Grilled Cheese Month and is the perfect

time to forget about your waistline and go all in with mouth

wide open. Thankfully for us there are a few restaurants on

the Ave that have an exceptional grilled cheese, so you don’t

have to try your hand at perfecting it at home. First stop is

Brule Bistro for their Beef Cheek Grilled Cheese with horseradish

aioli, Belton Farm white cheddar, grilled red onion, tomato

and multigrain bread for $13. Hello flavor! Continue to

Over the Bridge Café for their super savory Short Rib Grilled

Cheese with slow-cooked braised short rib, aged cheddar

cheese, American cheese and caramelized onions for $12. If

you want something totally different, take a bite of The New

Vegan’s Grilled Cheese No Cheese Sandwich that’s made with

melted dairy-free cheese and tomato for $12. Whatever your

guilty cheesy pleasure, you’re sure to get a mouth full with

these options. Savor the flavor and try them all. Cheese is the

new avocado, right? Visit

for complete restaurant information.

Poetry, foetry, did someone catch that moetry? Okay,

not quite, but it technically rhymes so it counts. April

is National Poetry Month and it is a fantastic time to

break out the old pen and paper and put your thoughts into

print. If you are a novice and need some coaching, or you

are a veteran looking for a spotlight, Dada has you covered.

They host a Poetry Slam the first Tuesday of every month

and everyone is invited. If you want to hang out in the crowd

and enjoy some liquid courage before you face the mic, that’s

all great. If you want to go all in and see how the audience

likes your poetical adaptation of Jurassic Park, that’s all

good, too. It’s a safe zone where you can do whatever you’d

like (almost) in the name of poetry. It’s free to participate

and there’s even a cash prize and gift certificates awarded.

The event begins at 10pm and is hosted by Chunky, and DJ

D Smooth handles the music, so get out there and let your

voice be heard. Dada is located at 52 N. Swinton Ave. Visit for more information.

The Best of Enemies is based on a true story and centers on the unlikely

relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil

rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who

reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation

of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged

summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change

Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.

Pet Sematary is based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King.

Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating

with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children

from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground

hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy

strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow),

setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable

evil with horrific consequences.

Shazam! We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic

to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one

word ‘SHAZAM!’ this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the

adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard.

Still a kid at heart - inside a ripped, godlike body - Shazam revels in this

adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers:

have fun with them!

April 12

After follows Tessa (Langford), a dedicated student, dutiful daughter

and loyal girlfriend to her high school sweetheart, as she enters her

first semester in college. Armed with grand ambitions for her future, her

guarded world opens when she meets the dark and mysterious Hardin

Scott (Tiffin), a magnetic, brooding rebel who makes her question all

she thought she knew about herself and what she wants out of life.

Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. Based on the novels by Mike Mignola,

this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero

(David Harbour) called to the English countryside to battle a trio

of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla

Jovovich), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past

betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the

human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering

the end of the world.

Little is another new age swap comedy, like Big or 13 Going on 30,

about a woman who wakes up as her 13-year-old self again. She’s given

the chance to relive her younger self, at a point in her life when the pressures

of adulthood become too much for her to bear. Of course, she’s going

to learn some lessons along the way. Regina Hall and Marsai Martin

both star as Jordan Sanders.

Missing Link The story introduces us to Mr. Link, a big furry creature,

and the man who is out to prove his existence: the charismatic Sir

Lionel Frost, who ends up befriending him. Featuring the voices of Hugh

Jackman, Zoe Saldana, Zach Galifianakis, Timothy Olyphant, David Walliams,

Emma Thompson, Matt Lucas, Ching Valdes-Aran, Stephen Fry,

and Amrita Acharia.

Breakthrough is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s

unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s

adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost.

But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires

those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in

the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer

DeVon Franklin.

Penguins Disneynature’s all-new feature film Penguins is a comingof-age

story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions

of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable

nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him,

especially considering he’s targeted by everything from killer whales to

leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.

April 19

The Curse of La Llorona In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking

the night -- and the children. Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled

mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own

small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their

only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned

priest and the mysticism he practices keeping evil at bay, on the fringes

where fear and faith collide.

I Want You Back

by Lorelei James

Released April 2nd

New York Times bestselling author Lorelei

James kicks-off her Want You Series

with a Lund family cousin hot enough to

melt the ice and mend a broken heart.

Former NHL star Jaxson Lund has returned

to the Twin Cities, but he’s at loose

ends, unsure if he belongs at Lund Industries,

or where he stands with Lucy, his exgirlfriend

and mother of his daughter, Mimi.

Despite the signs she’d like to leave him in

the penalty box, the attraction burning between

them reinforces his determination to

prove that he deserves a second chance.

Lucy Quade is in a good place with a

steady job, a nice apartment, and a well-adjusted

daughter, which is why she’s hesitant

when Jax insists on co-parenting. It’s not

that Lucy doesn’t trust Jax...she’s just unconvinced

he can handle multiple responsibilities

when he’s been singularly focused on

playing hockey. But when issues arise with

Mimi, Lucy’s shocked at how levelheaded

and paternal he acts, giving her a glimpse

of the Jax she used to know, the sexy, sweet

man she fell for years ago.

Once Lucy lets her guard down, Jax goes

all in to show her how good they are together,

but will their past remain too large

an obstacle to ever overcome?

When We Left Cuba

by Chanel Cleeton

Released April 9th

In 1960s Florida, a young Cuban exile will

risk her life--and heart--to take back her

country in this exhilarating historical novel

from the author of Next Year in Havana.

Beautiful. Daring. Deadly.

The Cuban Revolution took everything

from sugar heiress Beatriz Perez--her family,

her people, her country. Recruited by the

CIA to infiltrate Fidel Castro’s inner circle

and pulled into the dangerous world of espionage,

Beatriz is consumed by her quest

for revenge and her desire to reclaim the life

she lost.

As the Cold War swells like a hurricane

over the shores of the Florida Strait, Beatriz

52 | April 2019 |

is caught between the clash of Cuban American

politics and the perils of a forbidden

affair with a powerful man driven by ambitions

of his own. When the ever-changing

tides of history threaten everything she has

fought for, she must make a choice between

her past and future--but the wrong move

could cost Beatriz everything--not just the

island she loves, but also the man who has

stolen her heart...

The Book of Dreams

by Nina George

Released April 9th

Henri Skinner is a hardened ex-war reporter

on the run from his past. On

his way to see his son, Sam, for the first

time in years, Henri steps into the road

without looking and collides with oncoming

traffic. He is rushed to a nearby hospital

where he floats, comatose, between

dreams, reliving the fairytales of his childhood

and the secrets that made him run

away in the first place.

After the accident, Sam—a thirteen-year

old synesthete with an IQ of 144 and an

appetite for science fiction—waits by his

father’s bedside every day. There he meets

Eddie Tomlin, a woman forced to confront

her love for Henri after all these years, and

twelve-year old Madelyn Zeidler, a coma

patient like Henri and the sole survivor of

a traffic accident that killed her family. As

these four very different individuals fight—

for hope, for patience, for life—they are

bound together inextricably, facing the ravages

of loss and first love side by side.

A revelatory, urgently human story that

examines what we consider serious and

painful alongside light and whimsy, The Book

of Dreams is a tender meditation on memory,

liminality, and empathy, asking with grace

and gravitas what we will truly find meaningful

in our lives once we are gone.

Before She Was


by Heather Gudenkauf

Released April 16th

gripping thriller about three young girlfriends,

a dark obsession and a chilling


crime that shakes up a quiet Iowa town,

from the New York Times bestselling author

of The Weight of Silence.

For twelve-year-old Cora Landry and her

friends Violet and Jordyn, it was supposed

to be an ordinary sleepover—movies and

Ouija and talking about boys. But when they

decide to sneak out to go to the abandoned

rail yard on the outskirts of town, little do

they know that their innocent games will

have dangerous consequences.

Later that night, Cora Landry is discovered

on the tracks, bloody and clinging to

life, her friends nowhere to be found. Soon

their small rural town is thrust into a maelstrom.

Who would want to hurt a young girl

like Cora—and why? In an investigation that

leaves no stone unturned, everyone is a suspect

and no one can be trusted—not even

those closest to Cora.

Before She Was Found is a timely and gripping

thriller about friendship and betrayal,

about the power of social pressure and the

price of needing to fit in. It is about the great

lengths a parent will go to protect their child

and keep them safe—even if that means

burying the truth, no matter the cost.

The Concours d’Elegance is an annual Charity fête that

always amazes guests and philanthropists. In its 13th

year it is still as viable and exciting as it was the first year.

They outdid themselves this year by raising over $10 million

for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. The

celebrity guest at this years’ event was “car guy” and

world-class comedian Jay Leno. And, he didn’t just show up for

his stand-up routine (where he said that buying an iPhone 10

would only be necessary if you were going to do a colonoscopy)

he attended every event.

The 3-day extravaganza started with a Hangar Party at the

Boca Raton Airport. It was there that beautiful people and luxury

vehicles co-mingled joyfully. There was finger food, libations

of all persuasion, private jets and the first Rolls-Royce SUV.

Saturday evening was the Gala Dinner with live auction and a

hilarious ride on the Leno laughter train. The room was beautiful,

and the generosity of guests and sponsors was awe-inspiring.

There were also auto seminars for the rabid car enthusiast

(Leno being one – he has 186 cars and 163 motorcycles).

Sunday was one of the most extensive exhibitions of antique

and rare cars. The search for Leno’s favorite for his “Big Dog Garage

Award” went to a 1937 Bugatti 57S Coupe and a 1933 IsottaFraschIni

Tipo 8A.

Best in class went to everyone who donated to this wonderful

cause for children.

health & beauty | pain relief

By Dr. Safranski


It’s everywhere! Whether you’d like to believe it or not it is

happening in your body right now, what are you doing to help prevent

it? Inflammation is a broad term, but it is an actual condition

contributing to your overall health. In fact, there are different types

of inflammation, and we will touch on them in a second.


more pressing issue is why inflammation stays around in

your body for so long. Is it because you’ve done the same

repetitive movements too much? Is it because you keep reinjuring

yourself? Is it your diet? The answers to all of the questions

is yes! It is because we live in a state of repetitiveness. We

don’t take care of ourselves and we don’t eat the proper nutritional

content to give our body what it needs to survive on a cellular level.

Just like when you sprain your ankle and it swells up and you get

acute inflammation.

Swelling occurs to help repair the injury, blood is rushed to the

area to heal the injury. However, if the swelling continues and it

is there too long, that can become problematic. Treating this with

the R.I.C.E. method (Rest Ice Compression Elevation) and even laser

therapy can help reduce swelling. Chronic inflammation can

be counterproductive to the healing process, so intervention is

needed. With chronic inflammation, Laser therapy is also a great

option. The lasers’ healing properties are great for arthritic joints

and chronic injuries that you just can’t get to heal.

Inflammation happens even at the cellular level, and just like

the acute and chronic swelling in the joints, cellular inflammation

can lead to injury as well. At a cellular level, free radicals are a

normal by product of cellular metabolism, and they are a natural

and necessary part of our body metabolism, but just like anything

else, too much is bad. Free radicals are minimized by proper nutrition

and supplementation. If there are too many free radicals in

our system, that can lead to systemic inflammation which can lead

to cellular damage which can alter cellular DNA.

So, what dietary changes can we make daily to help with all

of these types of inflammation? Again, anything in excess is bad.

Steer clear of dairy, milk and cheeses, complex carbohydrates, refined

sugars. Increase green leafy vegetable intake and decrease

red meat intake. Make sure your water intake is sufficient (half

your body weight in ounces at minimum) and getting proper supplementation

for your body. Find a provider who knows how to

measure you the carotenoids in your skin. Carotenoids measure

your free radicals, so this is an accurate way to assess this. This is

a great indicator for cellular inflammation and a great beginning

point for your diet and well-being.

Facial Rejuvenation

for the Savvy

IPL, Intense Pulsed Light, is the gold standard for photofacial-rejuvenation.

This FDA-cleared and patented technology

provides dramatic results for conditions that result simply from

living. These include age spots, sun-induced freckles, redness of

rosacea, acne scarring and other discolorations and blemishes.

Using the principle called selective photothermolysis, IPL

treatments target different pigment types called “chromophores”

in the skin. They selectively absorb the light energy

as heat and then yield the desired response. These optimally targeted

wavelengths of light clear vascular and pigmented lesions by

the dozens from the face, hands, neck and décolleté. Pigmented

lesions undergo a mild peeling and disappear within two or three

days, while the vascular lesions blanch and then resolve within 10

to 14 days. The process is painless, takes about 20 minutes and

involves no serious downtime, thus, the savvy patient can return

to their busy life with little interruption and no questions asked.

Why choose IPL over other treatment options? Laser resurfacing

and deep chemical peels often send patients into hiding, as they

wait for redness, swelling and peeling to subside. Microdermabrasion

addresses skin irregularities, but is not effective against all

complexion problems including redness, flushing and broken capillaries.

Face lifts and other surgical procedures are far too invasive

for younger patients and for “baby boomers” that simply want to

revitalize their appearance without time lost in recovery.

60 | April 2019 |

Photo Rejuvenation or PhotoFacial is the most popular anti-aging

treatments available today. This revolutionary breakthrough requires

a series of non-invasive anti aging skin care treatments that improve

or completely eliminate virtually all of these of skin conditions:

• Hyperpigmentation

• Sun Damage

• Broken Capillaries

• Spider Veins

• Age Spots

• Freckles

• Mild Acne Scars

• Rosacea and Redness

• Skin Discolorations

Spring Clean Up!

The hot weather is here, and bathing suit season is upon us.

If you haven’t shed that extra layer yet, now is the time! I’m

sure most of you are familiar with the layer I’m talking about.

That “layer” from the holidays that you swore would be off in

time for summer. It’s never too late to get that body in gear!

Here are some tips to kick-start your spring and have you

feeling ready for that summer wardrobe!

The first and most component of shedding that unwanted

layer is nutrition. Keeping a daily food log of exactly everything

that you are consuming is highly recommended…

the good the bad and the ugly! This will help you easily

pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. Be brutally

honest and make sure to write it ALL down!

Next, try your best to eliminate processed foods

from your diet and stick to 70-80% homemade

prepared meals (yes,…you can do it!). Food

prep is 100% essential in helping you reach

your goals! These meals should consist of

lean proteins, healthy fats, complex carbohydrates,

fruit and of course lots of veggies.

Having healthy food on hand at all times is

a game changer. The other

nutrition component is

water! Your body won’t

burn fat if it is dehydrated.

It’s such a simple

thing many people

don’t do. Drinking

proper amounts of

water will also help

to keep you feeling

full, help flush out

toxins and help decrease


The second component is weight lifting. It

has to be done…period. Weight lifting is essential

to fat burning and your metabolism.

The more muscle you have, the more calories

your body will burn at rest. Ladies, I

promise you will NOT get bulky from lifting

more than five pounds. I compare

weight training to a sculptor taking a

piece of round clay molding it in to a nice

shapely figured. That’s what real work

does to your body. It gives your body the

“shape” most are looking to achieve and

62 | April 2019 |

that will not happen without picking up some sizable weights! I

know a lot of people who think cardio alone will do this and that is

the farthest thing from the truth. Although cardio has its time and

place (more about that next) resistance training is essential.

You should aim to get in 4-5 sessions a week, lasting no

longer than 60 minutes.

The last component is performing the right type of

cardio. High Intensity Interval Training also known

as HIIT is the fastest and most effective way to

decrease your body fat and show off all the resistance

training that you’ve been doing. The

best thing about this type of cardio is that

you don’t need more than 20-30 minutes

per day. The days of super long and slow

cardio sessions are OVER! HIIT will keep

your body burning calories for hours after

your actual session. This type of training

involves alternating between intense

bouts of exercise followed by low intensity

exercise. If you’re a beginner, you

may want to start with a 1:1 work ratio.

One minute on, one minute off. HIIT can

be performed anywhere…. outside using

sprints or stairs, on the treadmill, at

the beach etc. Depending on what your

goals are and what your body fat is, aim

to perform HIIT cardio 2-3 times per

week. If you’re performing it correctly,

that’s all you’ll need.

Take these 3 components of

eating clean (do that food prep!)

weight training, and proper cardio

and you’ll be summer ready in no

time. There’s no better way to welcome

the summer heat than with a

healthy, more confident you.

A New Mini-Mall

By Diane Feen | Photos by melissa korman

The Big Apple Shopping Bazaar has always held a certain allure to

shoppers in Delray Beach. And why not? They have boutiques and

businesses that sell the most diverse collection of products – from card

games to wigs, shoes, fine jewelry, prescription eyewear and more.

For the past 30 years it’s been a landmark shopping experience.

But the new reincarnation of this 35,000-square-footshopping

Mecca has retail shops, a café, a tailor, hair salon

and an inspiring new retail concept.

The former flea market is now a state-of-the-art Mini-Mall. This

exciting new concept is the brainchild of Chad L. Ruggiere, a marketing

maven who has scaled the heights of corporate marketing

and branding.

His vision is now being implemented – and the sweep and scope

is ambitious. The Big Apple Shopping Bazaar is being transformed

into“The Big Apple Jewelry Exchange, Shopping Bazaar and Salon

& Spa Suites.”

“We have transformed this popular shopping destination into Delray

Beach’s first Mini-Mall. This 35,000-square-foot retail destination

will house a new Jewelry Exchange and Salon & Spa, as well as

the existing array of over 65 one-of-a-kind specialty shops. Delray

Beach’s Mini-Mall has over 300 parking spaces and a beautiful Disney-esque

interior reminiscent of the streets of New York,” said VP of

Business Development and Marketing,Ruggiere.

With large malls facing the decline of merchants and customers,

this new Mini-Mall offers the beauty of diversity with the intimacy of

a smaller slice of retail wizardry. There will be 50 jewelry showrooms

at one end of the Mini-Mall and a Salon & Spa Suite at the other end.

But there is another retail component that makes this more state

of the art, than state of mind. That’s because they are taking each

retailer – or vendor – into their diverse marketing umbrella. There is

an on-premises IT department (Information Technology) as well as a

Sales and Marketing Department to make sure retailers and vendors

get a steady flow of new business.

“We don’t just give you the keys and say good luck,” said Ruggiere.

“We are helping each merchant build and market their brand

through social media with content, postings and videos. We are also

designing and creating websites and landing pages to drive traffic

online and directly into each storefront within the Big Apple.”

That’s only part of the good news. All new tenants will get their

first three months’ rent free when they sign a lease, and everyone

will get marketing and branding expertise from Ruggiere and their

marketing department and IT experts.

The depth and breadth of this new concept – that will include

an upscale food court with beer and wine – will include fashion

64 | April 2019 |

shows, special events, seminars and lectures. The East side of the

Mini-Mall will have aestheticians and services such as permanent

make-up, massage and hair salons at affordable prices.

“We are targeting all demographics for this new retail shopping

concept. We are still going to be affordable and appealing to our existing

clientele and offer designer and high-end merchandise at a discount,”

said Ruggiere.

Ruggiere has an impressive track record of success and knowledge

in marketing and branding. He was trained in the pharmaceutical

industry with Fortune 500 companies and went on to launch (and

brand) well-known pharmaceutical products. He grew up in Boca

Raton, earned a full scholarship to play college sports and had two

pro offers(Chicago Bears and Montreal Expos). But after injuring his

rotator cuff, he could no longer play sports.

You know what they say – when one door closes another one

opens. And that’s what happened to Ruggiere. “My takeaway from

sports is the understanding of teamwork for success. I’m a team guy

and that is what we are building at the Big Apple. We want all our

merchants to know they will be part of our team (or family) and we

will work hard to bring them success.

Joel Cohen of Eyewear Bazaar is already experiencing that success.

The eyewear boutique is center front in the Big Apple and is a

destination for many shoppers. Cohen’s family style retail niche offers

customers a vast selection of eyewear and a supportive environment.

“This is a great location. We have built relationships here and

our customers are like family. We are excited about going away from

the flea market mentality and becoming more jewelry minded. We

are selling more designer frames at a 30 to 50% discount.”

At Ms. Opal’s Wigs business is booming. The chairs are full, and

the selection of upscale designer wigs is flourishing. “We are getting

more inventory and adding combination human and synthetic hair

wigs of a much higher grade. We also have a great selection of fun

wigs,” said Ms. Opal.

The Big Apple Management team is looking for new merchants to

come into their retail realm and experience this new Mini-Mall shopping

concept that will include a Jewelry Exchange and Salon & Spa Suites.

They not only welcome new merchants (and customers) but they will

embrace your retail model with IT expertise and marketing support.

“Everyone talks about online shopping, but it’s only about 9.6%

of actual retail business. People still want to shop the old way – to

touch, taste and smell merchandise. I’m from the old school of business

that includes customer service and getting what you want in the

size you want it,” adds Ruggiere.

Part of this new wave of sophistication and upscale offerings

comes new shops that will offer you just about everything you need.

You want a new kitchen? Check out MKD Décor – Master Kitchen Décor

– that has elegant high-quality kitchens, bathrooms, closets, offices

and other residential and commercial interiors.

Another new boutique – that has a Hollywood chic decor – is Rey

De Flor. They sell natural wax and soy candles with designer fragrances

and perfumes.

The Big Apple Shopping Bazaar is entering its most encompassing

and ambitious retail expansion in 32 years.

Join them in this exciting venture – either as a vendor or a shopper.

You’ll be glad you did.

Passionate About Helping Clients

Cynthia M. Pyfrom is more than your typical family law attorney.

Her passion for listening and thoughtfully guiding her clients through one

of the most difficult times in their life is apparent as soon as you meet her.

66 | April 2019 |

In fact, her law firm, Cynthia M. Pyfrom, P.A. was founded in 2014 on

the belief that everyone deserves honest and straightforward legal

representation. President and Owner, Cynthia Pyfrom, Esq., has a

passion for family law that is evidenced by her numerous years of experience

as a paralegal and ultimate decision to attend law school in order

to make a personal impact in her community.

Cynthia M. Pyfrom, P.A. provides high quality legal representation in

Matrimonial and Family Law matters, including but not limited to dissolution

of marriage, child support, timesharing, equitable distribution

of property, modifications, enforcement, contempt, pre and post nuptial

agreements, paternity and alimony. Since these matters can sometimes

be a financial burden on the parties involved, Cynthia M. Pyfrom,

P.A. provides competitive rates along with reasonable retainer fees.

Family law matters can evoke high emotions and stress on those

involved. Cynthia M. Pyfrom, P.A. understands the sensitive nature

of these family law matters and works hard to ensure her clients are

walked through the process with step-by-step legal advice and personal


The local attorney has a wealth of expertise in the legal field. She

started working as a law receptionist in 1997 and later became a


“I fell in love with family law when I first started working in that

field in 2005. Ultimately, I decided to go to law school and become an

attorney myself. I worked full time at a family law office and attended

law school at Nova Southeastern University in the Evening Program,”

said Pyfrom.

Besides her experience in law, Pyfrom incorporates counseling into

her practice.

“I was originally going to be a high school teacher and took a lot of

psychology classes during my undergraduate studies. When I fell into

family law in 2005, I loved it because it mixed law and psychology. I

genuinely enjoy being able to help my clients through one of the most

difficult experiences of their life,” said Pyfrom, adding, “It’s rewarding

helping people. Many of my clients come into my office and they are in

a bad place in their life. When the case is over, I want to make sure they

are in a much better place. I enjoy helping people and that’s what I feel

like I’m doing in family law.”

The attorney believes the practice is unique because of her

extensive legal background and her personal experiences in

life, which give her a distinctive perspective. Cynthia M. Pyfrom,

P.A. is a boutique law firm. Cynthia is the sole attorney

and she specializes in personalized attention to each of her

clients. She is always accessible to answer her client’s questions

regarding their case, and she deals with clients on a

to other attorneys in the area and Cynthia’s experience in the

legal field. She also gives back to the community, is an assistant

Association for Women Lawyers and is also a founding member

of The Susan Greenberg Family Law American Inn of Court

of the Palm Beaches.

“What sets us apart is that I know the ins and outs of practicing

law without having a large law firm. I provide individual

attention to each of my clients. I am also divorced and a child

of divorce so I understand what my clients are going through.

My goal is to help them get to the other side of this experience

as quickly as possible so they can move on with their lives,”

said Pyfrom, adding, “I built my practice on being honest and

transparent. I don’t make promises or guarantee an outcome. I

give the full picture to the client in order for the client to make

an educated decision that is best for that specific situation. It

is not always information that the client may want to hear, but

my job is to be transparent and forthcoming so the client has

all of the information necessary to make a decision.”

Pyfrom thinks her firm has been so successful because of

the small boutique service.

“My ultimate goal of the firm is to provide a unique service

to the community that helps me stand out in a field that is inundated

with attorneys. I get to know each of my clients, as

family law can be the most intimate area of law. I believe what

makes a good family law attorney is their legal and life experience

as well as their background. The ability to be empathetic

with a client in family law, letting them know that you truly

care, is vitally important.”

exciting 10 days of world class

tennis with a “one for the record

strong challenge from Ken and Neal Skupski of Great Britain. The

round-robin matches delivered four amateurs who faced off in

the Pro Am Championship. The amateurs enjoyed a once in a

lifetime opportunity of playing on stadium court in front of a live

audience, with ball kids, chair umpire and Hawkeye electronic

line-calling, as if they were pros themselves. Mrs. Jane Williams

and Mr. Jeremy Jeffery won the final match, narrowly defeating

Ms. Teri Swift and Mr. Bynum Hunter.

Total Kitchen, Bath

and Home Remodeling

The Allied Team

If you are looking to

transform your kitchen,

bath or entire home, Allied

Kitchen & Bath is the answer.

For 35 years, Allied Kitchen & Bath has provided the finest

kitchen, bath and home remodeling services to their clients.

Allied Home Improvement Inc. was founded in 1984 by

brothers Bill and Joe Feinberg. As a licensed residential general

contracting firm, Allied Home Improvement quickly became one

of South Florida’s premier remodelers by doing custom work

with highly personalized service. Renamed Allied Kitchen &

Bath in 1985, still at its current location in the Fort Lauderdale

area; now, with a second luxury showroom in Oakland Park, the

company’s growth continues.

“Our company is all about being honest. You can never go

wrong when you have good ethics. Some of our products we

have been selling for 35 years and we are the company that pays

it forward,” said owner Bill Feinberg. “If you want to remodel

your home you need to come to us; you can trust us. Hands down

we are the best remodeling company in South Florida.”

It’s easy to see why Allied Kitchen & Bath has been so successful.

The family owned and operated business has many of the

same employees since day one. The company started in 1984

with three duplexes by four brothers, then expanded to a commercial

building in 1986 and 10 years ago to the building it is

today. “We are proud of our Allied Team of 65 talented people,”

said Bill Feinberg.

A large sign outside the showroom has inspirational messages

that change weekly such as: ‘Trust what you feel, not what

you hear.’ The moment you walk through the doors, the grand

staircase welcomes customers. There is a kitchen showroom,

which has been open for many charitable events to help raise

money for local charities such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward

County. There is also a bath showroom with a wide array of

unique bathroom designs. Upstairs is home to the design room

and has many decorative hardware pieces, such as Swarovski

Crystal door knobs, similar to a jewelry store. The staff is always

on hand to greet customers with a warm welcome and are very

knowledgeable about home remodeling. They also answer their

phones and keep clients updated on the progress of their remodeling


The staff at Allied Kitchen & Bath deals with clients fairly and

honestly with the objective of always making customer service

and satisfaction top priority. They also strive to create a positive

work environment that yields employee satisfaction and a positive

vibe within the showroom which is felt by customers.

By offering the highest quality products and materials, excellence

in workmanship, and design creativity, in tandem with

forward-thinking and a focus on family and safety, Allied turns

remodeling dreams into realities.

72 | April 2019 |

Allied Kitchen & Bath continues to grow and expand. They are

installing many outdoor kitchens and continue to bring in new

and modern products such as the Austria ST-One quartz island

and countertops for the kitchen. They also collaborate with designers,

builders, and architects and let them use the showroom.

The owners are always keeping their clients and charitable

causes at the forefront. They have raised a lot of money for charities

and host many events at their locations.

“I was always involved in philanthropy. When my father

passed away, it became more personal and I became more involved

in charities, as the Chair for the Leukemia & Lymphoma

Society and raising money for local charities,” said Feinberg.

Allied Kitchen & Bath has remodeled entire homes, baths and

kitchens throughout Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade

Counties. They have many repeat customers, and clients referring

their family and friends.

“It’s about building relationships. We have many repeat customers.

We have many great reviews. It’s very important to us

that the client walks away happy,” said Feinberg. “If you’re looking

to remodel, this is the company to come to. You can trust

your home to our experienced staff.”

Customers praise Allied Kitchen & Bath for their excellent customer

service and quality work.

“We just had our master bathroom remodeled by Allied Kitchen

and Bath and could not be happier with the result, and the entire

process! Our designer, Lewis Reif, was incredibly attentive,

David, Rob, Bill and Joe Feinberg

courteous and knowledgeable. Our Project Manager, Bob, and

Site Manager, George, both did excellent jobs and exceeded our

expectations. The project was very well organized and everyone

on the Allied team communicated with us constantly. Unlike our

past experiences with contractors, the guys showed up regularly,

on time, and stayed until all the work planned for that day

was done. They stayed within budget and completed the project

within the expected time frame. Our bathroom turned out to be

stunning! We are recommending them to all of our friends and

look forward to having them do our guest bath next year,” said a

happy customer.

“My husband and I used Allied Kitchen and Bath to remodel

our master bathroom. The designer was Lewis Reif. Lewis was

a pleasure with whom to work. He was patient and professional

and guided us well. All of their workmen were professional and

courteous. They respected and took good care of our home. We

love our new bathroom and highly recommend Allied Kitchen &

Bath,” said another happy customer.

Antica Sartoria

Unique Collections to Delray Beach

By diane feen | Photos by melissa korman

The long flowing skirts and pastel dresses found only in

Italy by famous clothing designer Giacomo Cinque can also

exclusively be found at Antica Sartoria in Delray Beach.

Antica Sartoria is a unique boutique located in the heart of Delray

Beach. The colorful style of clothing found in the picturesque

town of Positano, Italy can be found in the local boutique.

Each year, Giacomo designs an entire new collection. Many of the

clothes are like a work of art and described as a Boho chic style and

casual beach chic for women of all ages. Growing more in the market

and distributing the product all over the world, Antica Sartoria

is successful thanks to the job of masterful craftsmen from different

countries, while preserving the spirit and the expression of the

original fashion of “Positanese.”

“This designer only makes so many of each piece. When you shop

here what you are looking at is original, and you can’t get them anywhere

else,” said owner Renee Schaefer. “To me, he is an artist. The

color, the detail and beadwork on his clothing is magnificent.”

The boutique carries a casual beachy style and Boho chic attire,

which you can wear from the beach to dinner on the Avenue.

Their affordable pricing and fashionable line sells quickly and they

change their merchandise every few weeks. Other top sellers are

their one-piece bathing suits, earrings, necklaces, scarves, beach

bags and hats. Antica Sartoria has everything from everyday wear

to beach chic to statement pieces. They are a boutique in style but

not in prices. Affordable is the goal with pricing ranging from $9.99

to a custom piece at $299.

“We don’t want to be a boutique where you see the same thing for

6 months. Our prices can fit everyone’s budget,” she said.

As soon as you walk through the doors of the Delray Beach boutique,

you will be greeted by friendly staff and stunning beach style

clothing. The “feel good” vibe continues with the bright colored accessories,

handmade sandals and clothing. The local store takes you all

the way to Italy complete with Italian music and décor. The store even

has a fun line of accessories, handbags, children’s clothing and more!

Owners Renee Schaefer, Curtis Sigretto, and Wayne Jenkins

wanted to bring the style of Italian clothing to the Avenue. This is

the fourth Antica Sartoria boutique in Florida and has been in operation

since last year. The other locations are in Downtown at the

Gardens at Palm Beach Gardens, Key West on Duval Street, and in

Naples at the Mercato.

Renee and her husband Curtis first discovered an Antica Sartoria

boutique when they visited Positano, Italy in 2016.

“We felt that the boutique had Florida written all over it,” said Renee.

The couple loved the store so much that they went to the showroom

and spoke with the designer, Giacomo Cinque, and his business

partner, Riccardo Ruggiti. Four months later, they opened the

first Antica Sartoria in the U.S. and have exclusive rights.

“Since we opened our first store, we haven’t stopped. It’s the

same store in Italy. We have Italian music, and the exact shopping

74 | April 2019 |

ags and even the same hangers. A lot of our customers that

come into our store have been to the one in Italy,” she said.

“When customers come in, they just stand there. Everything is

so breathtaking. They love the store. It’s like eye candy without

the calories. Everything is so bright and beautiful.”

The shopping experience offers personalized service. The

staff help each client choose just the right outfit for any occasion.

You won’t find someone else wearing the same outfit on

the Avenue or at the beach.

“Everything you see here is from one designer. When you

try on the clothes, you will love the way you feel in them. When

you leave the store, you will feel relaxed and have a good experience

here. It is a completely different shopping experience

than the basic store,” said Renee.

“We only stock so many of each piece that you will not see someone

else wearing it on Atlantic Avenue,” said Renee. “We offer a

boutique atmosphere. We are very hands-on. When our customers

leave, they always say they had so much fun shopping here.”

Getting Results

By Diane Feen

Keeping fit is everyone’s dream. The perfect

body, the healthiest muscle mass and the least

amount of fat is something to strive toward.

to quantify and qualify what your body needs for optimal fitness

with maximum results.

Their InBody 570 is a 45 second test that swiftly measures fat,

muscle mass and body water levels. It is also used to determine

how a specific diet or exercise will affect your body composition.

“We start by testing - we test and retest to measure improvement

in the body. Sometimes an exercise program can be too intense,

and you might be losing muscle. We also take into consideration

stress factors that produce Cortisol that negatively affect

your body,” said Black.

In order to make sure your workout is in sync with your fitness

and health goals your trainer will ask questions to determine what

type of workout you need. They will ask about your personal life

and stress level in your home and work environment. “We ask these

questions to make sure we don’t over stress the clients. We want to

make sure the physical and mental components are in sync. It helps

us to keep clients more accountable to insure they get enough rest

and proper nutrition,” said Black.

But when you’re working out – do you know if you’re really

achieving this goal?

That seems to be a question that should be on everyone’s

mind. Getting in shape is one thing, but doing it correctly is just

as important. “When losing weight it’s important to lose the right

weight – you don’t want to lose muscle - you want to lose fat,” said

David Black, Personal Training Manager of Purlife Fitness Center.

In order to get the right results – and the proper exercise regimen

- you need a personal trainer to create an exercise program

specifically for you. One size does not fit all for sure. Especially if

you want to get maximum results from your workout.

“Having a personal trainer benefits everyone. If you’re just

starting your fitness journey it’s essential to have professional

guidance to ensure proper techniques to make sure you don’t get

injured, and to guarantee you get the results you want. For the

seasoned veteran, a personal trainer helps keep things interesting

with new modalities to spice up what could become a monotonous

fitness routine,” said Black.

That’s why Purlife has a staff of expertly trained (and certified)

personal trainers in Delray and Boca to make sure your exercise

journey is perfect. They also have state-of-the-art assessment tools

76 | April 2019 |

Though it has been said that nutrition is important, Black stresses

that this sage-like wisdom is part of keeping fit and healthy. “You

don’t want to deprive yourself of calories. If you only eat one meal a

day you don’t get enough food and your body wants to store fat. You

also need nutrients,so you don’t rely on unhealthy snacks.”

Purlife Fitness also has the state-of-the-art Fit 3D Body Scan that

is nothing short of a miracle. It reads your bodies postural alignment,

shows imbalances in muscle symmetry and strength, flexibility

and joints. The Fit3D Body Scan allows you to visualize the

results of your workouts and see if changes are necessary.

“From losing weight to building muscle the 3D scans can tell

you how your body is changing with your fitness routine and will

help you see progress right before your eyes! The scan can be

repeated to compare your measurements and gauge where your

progress is being made.”

The goal of these assessment tools is to make sure you’re doing

the correct workout for your specific body. One of the most important

components of this personalized fitness journey at Purlife is

known as Functional Movement Screening – or FMS.

The FMS functional movement screen is done to identify weaknesses

and imbalances in your body. Then a plan is put into place

with cardio and strength training, rest and recovery and health and

nutrition counseling. FMS is a very definitive way of understanding

your bodies strengths and weaknesses and allows your trainer to

help you heal from previous injuries or weaknesses. “We can then

determine and prescribe a unique fitness protocol that will accelerate

you along a path to your new self.”

FMS also helps pinpoint and personalize a workout program to

get you active and healthy without injury or pain. Do you have a

knee problem, back pain or shoulder pain? Tightness in your hip?

FMS will help your trainer diagnose the problem and come up with

a solution that is viable and part of your exercise program at Purlife.

“Everyone should do the FMS Test to show what your body needs

and where the weaknesses are in order to strengthen and mobilize.

Now that people are sitting so much at their jobs they are often out

of balance because of their sedentary lifestyles,” said Black.

After the FMS Test your trainer will find out where your problems

are and what needs to be done to help you return to a life that

is vital and active – powerful and proactive.

You want to be able to pick up your baby - or a napkin that has

fallen on the floor. Being mobile and feeling strong is essential to a

well-rounded life and lifestyle. This goal is achieved by what Black

calls corrective exercises.

Purlife Fitness also has top of the line equipment for any type of

training. They have treadmills and machines from Precor and LifeFitness,

and a state of-the-art group fitness studio. They have free

weights and a strength area with an Olympic lifting style platform.

The reason for their popularity is that they get results. “I can’t believe

how my life has changed by switching to PurLife Fitness! My

favorite thing about it is the encouragement that you feel throughout

the center – not just from the trainers, but from fellow classmates

and gym goers – everyone is so friendly and supportive, and

it makes it a very motivating environment,” said member Jill Pavlov.

Purlife Fitness has one goal – and that is to make sure you live

and lead an active healthy life. It goes without saying that the right

exercise program can change your life – the folks at Purlife know

this. That’s why they’re waiting for your call.

Real Estate with the

Best of Intentions

By diane feen | Photos by melissa korman

Allyson Sullivan lives and breathes real estate. Her clients

call her world-class and her 18 years’ experience make her

a valuable asset in the Delray Beach real estate market.


have earned the respect of thousands of buyers and sellers

including Forbes-Listers, CEOs and professional athletes.

Whether you’re buying or selling your home, working with

me is engaging the services of one of Palm Beach’s finest Realtors,”

said Sullivan, who is so disciplined and introspective that she can’t

help but be totally present for all clients and transactions.

Sullivan has seen the renaissance of Delray Beach and has weathered

the ups, downs, hurricanes and hurdles with élan. She is savvy

when it comes to creating the perfect scenario for selling property

and is accommodating and understanding for all buyers and sellers

(near and far).

“Allyson Sullivan is the BEST! In a competitive Parkland market, Allyson

was able to sell our home for top dollar. Her use of traditional marketing

- along with out-of-the-box strategies - made our house stand

out among the multitude of homes on the market,” said Brandy Abshier.

Abshier continued with more glowing words about Sullivan’s

outstanding work ethic. “Allyson completely exceeded our expectations

and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I have given her

name to my friends and family, and I don’t do that unless I believe in

someone. If you are looking for someone that’s going to get the job

done than Allyson’s your girl!”

That comes as no surprise to many who know Sullivan. She believes

in the rules of Karma that begin with kindness and end with

knowing that what you do matters.

“I try to practice kindness even when the odds are stacked

against me. There are curveballs around every corner, but I always

try to do the right thing. I lead my career with the belief that the

universe is watching.”

Sullivan’s assessment of Karma is quite accurate. What goes around

usually does comes around – and in a competitive atmosphere like

real estate it’s important to know your boundaries and rules. That’s

why Sullivan goes to great lengths to protect her clients from any

negative experiences and works hard to make sure both buyer and

seller are happy. “In the real estate process, you want someone to

protect you and make the journey an enjoyable experience.”

She’s right. Making a sale is great, but follow-through and honesty

is key in any real estate transaction. You don’t have to take Sullivan’s

word for it though, there are others who will do it for her.

78 | April 2019 |

“I have had the privilege of working with Allyson in the

selling and the purchase of a townhome in downtown Delray

Beach. I was impressed by the professionalism, knowledge, and

hard work she brought to the experience. Allyson gently but

firmly convinced me to make relatively small, but highly significant

renovations, to my home. Allyson essentially facilitated

the quick sale of my home at a fair price, in a community where

multiple townhomes are for sale, and are not selling quickly. I

am aware that she has an excellent reputation locally, but I have

no doubt her “brand” will continue to take an even greater shine

over time,” said Chris Kye.

One of the reasons everyone has such faith in Sullivan’s work

ethic and her performance is because she exudes humbleness and

kindness but knows when and how to stand firm. “I am a kind

gentle person, but a firm negotiator. That’s part of the reason I

get top dollar for sellers on their homes. I’m also a good listener.”

You bet she is. Just ask client Brandy Abshier. “Allyson is a

tough negotiator. With her years of experience, exceptional

knowledge of Real Estate, and hours of research, Allyson was

able to get us a higher sales price than we expected. That was

a big win, especially when we watched the houses around us

close for significantly less than their asking price.”

So how does this wonder woman accomplish these goals?

First of all, she puts great importance on keeping herself engaged

and healthy. Sullivan is an avid distance runner and she

works out with trainer extraordinaire Ashley Sica. She also

has a time management system she created that keeps her on

her toes from the moment she wakes up every day.“I juggle

my career, my family and fun…with the greatest of ease. Those

close to me are amazed at how I do it ALL!”

Having a time management system helps Sullivan stay true

to her career in real estate and nourish her body, mind and

spirit. That in turn gives her on edge on the competition. And

it’s working. She successfully closed 58 transactions in 2018

and continues to garner excellent reviews from clients.

“Allyson treated the sale of my little Villa with all of the professionalism,

respect and enthusiasm she would for a much

larger sale. She was trustworthy and completely honest with me

throughout the process. If you are looking for a broker in Delray

nobody knows the market better,” said Tricia Feggoudakis.

How to be Calm in Your Heart

Life is Stress

I don’t know about you, but the heavy traffic and crowded restaurants

and crabby grocery shoppers have me at my limit. Yeah,

we love the “season” too, it brings in the people and revenue...but

please...go home already! Not really. Here’s another angle:

“Strive to be a non-anxious presence in an anxious system” my

coach had said during a wilderness hike in the high mountains of

California. “Families, corporate teams and community organizations

often develop fear, turbulence and dysfunction when anxious

and become less effective.” A “non-anxious presence” (coach, parent,

manager, guide, therapist) can bring welcome clarity and resilience.

On retreat, I learned to calm my thoughts and relax my body using

my breath awareness and exercises to release tension held in

my body. The result was an immediate increase in mental focus

and available energy. No experience since has more powerfully

changed my view of helping others. Lowering and strengthening

our basic “emotional set point” can bring calm and greater awareness

during stress and experiences of high emotion, especially sorrow,

frustration and anger.

The Lizard Brain

Being highly aware is a great habit. Constant “hyper-vigilance,”

not so much. Some of the primitive parts of our brains, like the

tiny, almond shaped amygdala, promote a constant state of readiness

below our awareness. Like other animals, we are hard wired

to maintain a state of alert, like a “force field” carried unconsciously

using energy wastefully. Research has shown that it can elevate

pulse and blood pressure, increase emotional sensitivity and cause

pervasive worry, including excessive rumination over past events.

No surprise that depression is so prevalent in our culture.

While these natural bodily reactions served us well when dinosaurs

threatened, they’ve remained a vestigial, “out of whack early

warning system” with nothing real to fear. Some people “medicate”

this discomforting “uptight-ness” with alcohol, drugs and caffeine,

even food...thereby shortening lives and reducing the quality of

experience. We can manage anxiety naturally with guidance and

practice. The benefits of regular, methodical slowing down and

increasing our sensory perceptions are many and can bring about

rapid feelings of strength, energy and enjoyment.

Peace is Every Step

Try it next time traffic grinds to a halt in front of you. With red

brake lights as your cue: Relax your hands and shoulders. Breathe

deeply. Be grateful for life. Notice the sky and trees. Remind yourself

that this will soon pass. Go about your journey more mindfully.

The late and great Albert Ellis of REBT Therapy fame suggested we

take an approach called ULA, or “Unconditional Life Acceptance.”

Whatever happens needn’t bother me (much).

The increased capacity for self-regulation of physical and emotional

states I’ve gained from practicing a few basic disciplines like

yoga and meditation has increased my strength, patience and my

ability to listen. The awareness has shaped my life and professional

practice profoundly. Our kinder, resilient, more generous “Buddha

nature” lies within us. I think of it as our “higher power.” We can

access this unique and life changing force with every breath and

every step.

If you’d like to be stronger, less anxious, more focused and more

in charge of your life, perhaps we can help.

Delray Dermatology + Cosmetic Center

BY Dr. francesca lewis, md, faad

Glowing Skin

It is the reason we as consumers

spend billions of dollars per year

on the cosmetic industry, all to

try and achieve “perfect” skin.


always tell my patients instead of spending thousands of dollars

per year on expensive department and drug store creams,

invest in a solid skin care regimen with a scientifically proven

background. The staples of such a regimen should include a vitamin

C, E, and Ferulic Acid serum in the morning, a zinc based SPF

moisturizer every day, and a retinol containing product at night

time to stimulate collagen and reveal glowing skin.

Beyond our medical grade skin care regimen, I am often asked what

other treatments are my go-tos for glowing, vibrant, healthy, sundamage

free skin. There are a few treatments I would recommend doing

with frequency such as Hydrafacial. A monthly Hydrafacial will remove

all of the built-up dirt and debris from the skin, hydrate, smooth

and restore the texture of the skin. It is well loved for leaving the skin

immediately glowing and clear.

Clear + Brilliant laser is another treatment that I recommend at

least four times per year to remove sun damage brown spots, as well

as help with fine lines and pore size. It is a mild resurfacing laser with

little to no downtime and is wonderful for patients starting to see

signs of aging and patients who have undergone deeper resurfacing

in the past to maintain results.

The newest treatment on the market is called Aquagold Fine Touch

Microchanneling. It combines the benefits of microneedling with

benefits on injectables. The device itself has gold plated microneedles

that allows the infusion of product into the skin. What we choose for

ingredients depends on patient concerns and skin type. However, the

most common ingredients we might choose include PRP, Botox, and

Juvederm. The Aquagold treatment is complimentary and does not

take the place of traditional Botox and Filler injections. PRP (Platelet

Rich Plasma) is obtained from spinning down the patient’s own

blood in a centrifuge to separate out the plasma portion with the

highest concentration of platelets and growth factors. This has been

demonstrated to stimulate collagen production long-term when introduced

back into

the skin. The Botox

is in a much smaller

concentration than

typical for injections to relax

muscles. With infusion into the top layers

of the skin, it has a slightly different purpose than traditional wrinklerelaxing

injections. It has been shown to tighten pore size and overall

firming of the skin, diminish redness from rosacea by creating constriction

of capillaries, and therefore improve skin tone. The very

small concentration of Juvederm Hyaluronic Acid filler introduced

into the mixture provides skin hydration, plumping, and diminishment

of fine lines. Addition of Vitamin B5 for plumping and Vitamin C

for brightening round out the mixture.

Because of the relatively short depth of penetration into the skin

(1mm) compared to traditional microneedling (2-3mm) the downtime

is significantly less. Usually most patients expect one day of pinkness.

The effects of the treatment can take approximately 2 weeks to

settle in. This is a treatment that could be repeated monthly or every

few months depending on the patients desired outcome. We love this

treatment for the glowing look to the skin it provides. Both the Clear

+ Brilliant laser two to three weeks before an event and the Aquagold

one to two weeks before an event are common go-tos among celebrities

to get their skin red carpet ready.

The next time you look in the mirror and think your skin looks dull

and tired, consider these treatments, just some of many in our armamentarium

to restore youth and vibrancy to the skin.

Aqua Man For A Cause

Maurice Goodbeer lives by an honorable

creed – that of forgiveness and fortitude.

Though these virtues are thrown around quite liberally in

our contemporary lexicon, Goodbeer (known as Maui) adheres

to them as the foundation for his life.

And, his life has not always been an easy one. “When I was 28-yearsold

my brother Melvyn W. Patterson III was brutally gunned down in

a California shopping mall by a 16-year-old gang member.”

That pivotal moment in Goodbeer’s life changed the trajectory of

his future. At the eulogy for his brother he made a decision to make

forgiveness the foundation of his life. “I made a promise at my brother’s

funeral that I would help youth in need. It all came to fruition in

my mind one day when I heard the sound of seagulls at the beach, but

not that of inner-city kids,” said the California native.

To understand this remarkable man you need to understand his

upbringing and role models. His grandfather was a reigning force in

his life and highlighted important virtues to show young Goodbeer

the way to an enlightened life.

“My grandfather taught me ‘never to lose my cool,’ and to be compassionate

and confident. He said you only lose your cool when you

lack confidence and feel insecure.”

Compassion is what led Goodbeer from a career in Banking in

Oklahoma to Miami, Florida. He originally came because he was told

that Florida was where all the ‘beautiful people lived.’

But the word beauty to Maui is not always an outer manifestation.

He finds beauty in his life’s work – which is a non-profit organization

called StreetWaves. He also finds beauty helping underprivileged

youth navigate the ocean while teaching them to surf, swim,

boat safely and connect to nature.

This altruistic venture is not purely for water sport enjoyment, it

has much wider and more encompassing ramifications. “We believe

the majesty of the Ocean (and the wisdom of the Wave) provides a

powerful opportunity and safe-haven for individual expression and

personal growth. This experience connects our kids to a fun experience

where they feel camaraderie, love and respect.”

Goodbeer is a walking embodiment of what he preaches, and what

he believes in. He values commitment and tries to instill this virtuous

sensibility in his students by way of the wave.

“It takes courage and commitment to paddle into a Wave you

don’t know the outcome of. This is a metaphor for life that develops

in young people as they grow into young men and women. We have

found that our regular beach clean-ups not only instill environmental

sensitivities, but also develops great character and stewardship.”

There is another component to this non-profit organization (that

operates from grants, donations and volunteers) - it’s the historical

nature. When you meet Goodbeer he will pull out a book called, “The

Golden Age of Swimming.”

The book clearly shows how African Americans were not taught

to swim and were excluded from pools and beaches throughout

the country.

Goodbeer’s eyes begin to moisten as he turns the pages, but he

quickly straightens up to talk about the meaningful work they are doing

at StreetWaves. “Although the children still experience prejudice

related to swimming and ocean activities, they’re becoming respected

for their ability to navigate the oceans waves and stewardship of

the beach and shoreline.”

When asked about the significance of this aquatic enrichment program,

the students are ecstatic. “StreetWaves has been life changing for

me – it’s helped me so much over the years. The more I swam and did

things I never thought possible to achieve, the more confident I became.

I learned so much words can’t describe it,” said Gatshby Estimable.

Maui and StreetWaves have others in awe of this profound ocean

activity. “I have worked with StreetWaves youth and watched their

focus and connection develop and deepen to the water – turning

into joy and exhilaration. It is magical. In the process they become

stronger swimmers, lovers of the ocean and connected to a vision of

a future life that includes surfing and taking care of our oceans,” said

Thaddeus Gamor, President of SWIMS Foundation and Engagement

Director for Diversity in Aquatics.

Taking care of people is something that comes natural to Goodbeer.

He sits at the Village Elders Table (in the Set) and shares his wisdom

and opinions. The meetings are a way for the Northwest and Southwest

residents to discuss issues with leaders, politicians and CRA members.

Goodbeer thrives on platforms that discuss ideas and transformation,

with the goal of optimistic and compassionate change. He also mentors

at the Watson Institute at Lynn University for social Entrepreneurship.

When you meet Goodbeer you realize you are in the presence of

someone quite extraordinary. He is firm and responsible, yet joyful

and mature. It’s almost as if light bounces off his exterior.

Rabbi Marc Labowitz explains Goodbeer this way. “Maui wants to

walk in love. I don’t know anyone who manifests this intention more.

He honors commitments with real service and fulfills them with lofty

ideals. He is a gentle spiritual warrior who comes from a line of people

who have chosen to do divine work.”

Though his journey to South Florida was motivated on the premise

of wanting to luxuriate among the beautiful people his journey is anything

but superficial. Goodbeer tells his story (and shares profound

wisdom) through speeches and presentations at youth centers, temples,

schools, universities and other venues.

But it is his understanding of human nature (and what needs to be

done for a harmonious world) that is most compelling and admirable.

“Ultimately forgiveness begins with compassion and the ability

to look beyond our fears, pain and prejudice to find empathy for the

other person’s story. When we take this high road, the outcomes are

healing and peaceful, invoking positive action.”

We agree.

Eat Like They Do In Italy

veal chop with porcini mushrooms and mashed potatoes

If you know a little about Italian

culture than you know food is

as sacred as the divine. It’s a

sacrosanct ritual between friends

and relatives that defines the

delicacy of a full happy life.

Italian Cheesecake

Such is the theory at Cena Cucina Italiana. This elegant authentic

Italian restaurant hails from its Italian roots and stays true

to its illustrious form. Though the restaurant has been in Delray

for a few years it is recently under new management.

This new team – made up of Italian restaurant superstars –

has put together a new menu and a new philosophy. “We have

updated our wine menu and brought in only the highest quality

fresh pasta, fish, meats and desserts. We treat everyone like an

honored guest, and we value their patronage,” said General Manager

Paolo Accarpio.

Accarpio knows a thing or two (maybe a dozen) about running

a successful restaurant. He opened DeVito’s restaurant in South

Beach and was general manager for Bice, and corporate general

manager for Bice USA. Their chef – Antonio Montella – is also a

master of Italian cooking.

If the candlelit tables, limestone textured walls and elegant

bronze chandeliers tell you one thing it’s that this restaurant is a

world away from the chaos and commotion of a big city. It almost

feels like you’re in Italy, where aged Parmesan/Reggiano cheese

hails from the rafters (aged 24 months) and the food is perfectly

prepared with tender reverence.

98 | april 2019 |

“We care about the quality and freshness of the food we serve

here. Our Osso Bucco is slow cooked for four hours in a wine reduction

sauce with celery, onions and carrots,” adds Accarpio.

And, if the crowd of people feasting on their food is any indication

of its newly minted excellence then its new incarnation is holding

true to its mission.

If you want proof talk to Betty Pappas, who came to Cena with

her friends,Nanette O’Neill and Linda Deblasio. “The salmon here

is excellent, and so is the service. This is my first time eating here

and I will come back.”

Linda had this to say: “My Branzino alla Griglia con Verdure was

fresh and grilled to perfection with grilled vegetables.” As for Nanette,

it was a perfect score. The attractive snowbird sat in front

of an empty plate. “You can see how much I loved the Dover Sole,

it was superb. It was moist with a lemon and caper sauce that was

unique and so tasty.”

The salmon entrée that Betty raved about is a favorite at Cena.

It’s pan-seared Atlantic Salmon in a mustard crust, served with

mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. If you’re a mashed potato

connoisseur Cena has some of the best of breed – they’re creamy

and luscious to the taste.

Another bright spot at this romantic enclave of Italian fare is

their homemade Fettuccine Bolognese. It’s outstanding – with

homemade fettuccine in a fresh meat ragout with beef and veal. The

flavors are delicate yet discerning with a tenderness yet a fierceness

of excellence. “We make over 15 pounds of fettuccine Bolognese

a day and we run out of it quite often,” said Accarpio.

You can see why - it’s spectacular. So is there special of the evening,

a 14-ounce center cut Veal Chop with homemade Porcini

mushroom glaze and homemade mashed potatoes.

Other favorites at Cena include the Veal Milanese con Arugula,

Cipolla de Tropea & Ciliegino. It’s a pounded Veal Chop, breaded

and fried with baby arugula, Tropea red onion and cherry tomatoes.

Also popular – the Ravioli di Ricotta e Spinaci con Crema de

Asparagi. This dish is made of fresh homemade Ravioli stuffed with

Ricotta cheese and spinach in an asparagus cream sauce.

Each evening brings a unique experience – in food choices (they

have wonderful specials each day), guests and wine selection. There

Plate Fried Calamari

Fettuccine Bolognese

is a beautiful wine cellar in full view that adds a classic Italian flair

to its intimate elegant surroundings. They also have an outdoor

patio that is romantic and refreshing with beautiful Bougainvillea

greenery and sliders that are gently pulled up to retain the fullness

and freshness of the outdoors.

The beautiful artwork on the wall blends into the essence of its

classic yet classy Italian roots. But it’s all perfectly planned for your

enjoyment. The restaurant is intimate, yet not small – classy without

pretension. It’s truly an angelic realm of Italian flavor and flair

without having to make any bold claims.

“I absolutely love this restaurant! The food is outstanding! Fresh

homemade pasta at Cena Cucina Italiana is such a treat! We ordered

the Fettuccine Bolognese and the Ravioli. Both dishes were

terrific. To finish our dining experience we ordered the Tiramisu,

which was divine!” said Kerri.

Dessert is something to savor at Cena Cucina. Their homemade

Italian Cheesecake is best of breed with a softness and flavor usually

not seen in this genre. But that’s what you get when the dessert

is homemade with loving hands. Also terrific is their homemade

chocolate souffle with chocolate sauce (and ice-cream if you ask).

According to management, “It’s not about fueling up, it’s about winding

down and enjoying the people you love most, over fresh, top quality,

expertly prepared meals and exquisite wines. If you’ve ever traveled to

Italy you understand that Cena isn’t just a meal, it’s an event!”

We couldn’t agree more.

So does local businesswoman, Christina. “Met friends at Cena for

dinner and the entire experience was fabulous! Yummy food, efficient

yet unhurried service, great selections on the wine list and a

leisurely, European paced where dinner IS the event and conversation

is encouraged by the atmosphere. Cena is a little gem...I highly

recommend it!”

What Happens To My Pet

After I Am Gone?

At some point in time, all pet owners and caretakers will be

faced with an inevitable end. How do we handle the passing

of a loved one? In some cases, it comes as a shock, most

feel grief and remorse, and over time we accept and begin to heal.

After all, life goes on for our surviving family.

When you pass, what will your pets experience? Will they know

you are gone? Will they feel grief and loss? How will they deal and

most importantly, is there a plan or even an idea of what needs to

be done? These concerns also apply to owners who can no longer

afford or have the capacity to care for a pet anymore.

We know through both wildlife and companion pet studies that

as a pack (dogs) or a pride (cats) animal, the loss of a member has

an immediate effect on all the surviving members. There is both

a physiological and a behavioral change which is visibly evident.

The degree to which it happens will be different for each member

and can be quite differing depending on the size of the pack and

the individual relationships.

In any pet home, YOU are the alpha animal, the leader meaning

your pets are as close as possible to YOU. Do your pets ever

guard and defend you and your family? Do your pets warn you of

dangers or challenges? Of course, they do. Those are some of the

reasons we love our pets.

It’s true that sometimes, passing is sudden and unexpected.

Many times, it is the result of long-term health issues. In any case,

we have a duty to prepare our pets for that inevitable day. There

are ways that we, as pet parents can prepare our pets to ease their


Some pets mourn and express the stress of losing their best

friend by a loss of appetite or not eating appropriately. As we often

discuss in this forum, an appropriate diet is very important to

maintaining a healthy, happy pet. If your pet has their own challenges,

many of which are caused by an inappropriate diet, the

stress of any radical change can make these challenges worsen.

Another classic symptom is lethargy. This can be caused by the

sadness of the loss, lack of energy from insufficient nutrients and

a lack of interaction with other members.

We need to plan as to where and with whom our pets will go

to before we are incapacitated or pass away. If possible, that plan

should include financial support as well. We need to educate the

new pet care provider with as much information and interaction

to assure the pet is bonded with their new family before this

event occurs. Your pet should also be well socialized as they will

be exposed to new members and may need to be removed from

the home where they were most familiar.

To put it simply, we already do this when it comes to our spouses

and children. This same concept should apply to our furry

family members who cannot verbally express their own understanding.

This means honoring our pets by observation of their

behavior and preferences. Please take the time and plan for your

surviving pets’ new future, they certainly deserve it.
