Norwegian Encore is Here and She is Gorgeous #NorwegianEncore @CruiseNorwegian


Last month The 169,116 Gross Ton Norwegian Encore made its debut in NYC and we got a first peek, along with other media, influencers, travel agents, company executives and VIP guests. A Breakaway Plus Class Ship, the last of the four being built in this class, her sister ships are Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Joy, and Norwegian Bliss.

This ship is modern, with contemporary decor, super high -tech features and surpasses amenities found at top notch land based resorts. Even the most discerning traveler will be truly satisfied with the gracious accommodations, plethora of dining options and first rate entertainment.


Aqua Park

Go-Kart Raceway

Laser Tag

The activities are endless and are good for every age group. The aqua park offers thrilling rides, never before offered at sea. There is a little kids section that mimics the big park. Laser tag is played on a course where players have the option to shoot at the go-karts as they whisk by.

The most fun was was had on the go-kart track. The longest go -kart track at sea, the bi-level coarse allows guests to drive 30mph, with the winner posted at the end of the race. The Galaxy Pavillion has awesome virtual reality games, rides, and an escape room.


Along with dozens of unique bars and lounges the ship offers broadway entertainment that is on par with shows on Broadway. We saw the fantastic Choir of Man and the award winning Kinky Boots during our time onboard. The sprawling casino has the latest games for the most exciting gaming possibilities at sea !

Le Bistro

Le Bistro

Seafood Buffet


Dining is a huge part of cruising. With 27 dining venues on board there is something for everyone. The included main restaurants and buffets offer top quality cuisine with themed days and nights.

The seafood buffet was an outrageous smorgasbord of lobster, crab, raw bar and every other variety of seafood to fulfill any seafood lover’s fantasy. The specialty restaurants like Like Le Bistro and Onda at Scarpetta, an outpost of NYC critically acclaimed Italian Restaurant, run by the world famous LDV Hospitality, offer an elevated dining experience onboard.



The Encore has a vast variety of accommodations to choose from. Single travelers can enjoy their solo quarters, with no double occupancy supplement. Whether guests choose the most economical inside stateroom or the lavish Haven suite, the decor is elegant and understated, with soothing nautical colors and modern amenities like USB charging stations and flat screen smart tv’s.



 The Haven  is the ultimate cruising experience. A mega yacht experience within the walls of a huge dynamic cruise ship. Luxe suites, a private all-weather pool with retractable roof, private restaurant, bar and butler services. Open the gates and all the activities await and when privacy and peace are desired, enter the keyed Haven area on the top decks for exclusivity.


Norwegian Encore offers 7 day cruises to The Eastern Caribbean until April 2020. She will then move to NYC on April 22nd for Bermuda, Canada, and New England Itineraries. She will move back to Miami in December 2020 and offer Western Caribbean itineraries through April 2021. Book Here:

Moon Palace Jamaica: All- Inclusive Luxury in Ocho Rios #MoonPalaceJamaica #ThePalaceLife

Moon Palace Jamaica is a luxury all-inclusive family resort located 90 minutes away from Montego Bay airport. With nonstop and direct flights from many US cities the easy to get to vacation destination makes a visit of any length possible.

Located on a white sandy beach, in the heart of Ocho Rios, the property has over 700 rooms ranging from deluxe resort view rooms to oceanfront palatial Presidential Suites with private pools.

There are 4 pools on the property with covered loungers and cabana beds. One of the pools has a waterslide, basketball nets and is deemed the activities and kids pool. The other pools are quieter with friendly bar service all day long. Our server remembered our favorite cocktails from day 1!

Kayaks, hobie cats, and water bikes are included for fun daytime activities and with a $1500 resort credit per 7 night stay guests can enjoy a sunset cruise, snorkeling excursion, swimming with the dolphins, a spa service, a romantic dinner on the beach, or an excursion to neighboring Dunn’s River Falls.

The dining is varied with so many options available. Momo serves up fresh sushi and traditional hibachi with entertainment during dinner. La Gondola serves contemporary Italian cuisine in a romantic setting. Pier 8 is an oceanfront restaurant serving fresh seafood daily with catch of the day specials. Buccaneers Reef is a casual buffet restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner with themed evenings. Our favorite spot for lunch daily was the Jerk Chicken bar. Located poolside and open daily from 1230 to 430, the menu was simple, fresh jerk chicken smothered in a spicy jerk sauce served with corn on the cob. We literally ate there 5 out of the 6 days we were there, highly recommended! There is also The Boulangerie, that is open 24/7 near the lobby serving sandwiches, desserts, coffees and more and of course room service.


There is nightly entertainment and we were lucky enough to see the Island famous Silverbirds Steel Orchestra, who have been performing at the finest resorts all over Jamaica for years. An hour of energy filled dancing and drum playing to the hottest tunes out now.

No vacation is complete without a visit to the spa, at least in our opinion. The AWE Spa is Jamaica’s largest spa with 23 treatment rooms. The service begins with a water journey that includes hydrotherapy pools, a cold plunge pool, a warm pool with jet massage and a steam room and sauna. Guests are advised to arrive an hour before their scheduled spa treatment to enjoy this complimentary, with a spa service, experience. There are many massage, facials, and body treatments available. We chose a deep tissue massage, as stressed out New Yorkers, this was much needed before our return to the concrete jungle. Our technician had super strong hands and was very experienced. Spa day was very much enjoyed.

To book your stay visit Moon Palace Jamaica or call 1-800- 987- 0984


Getting to Jamaica has never been easier with our favorite airline. JetBlue has several nonstop flights from the New York area with convenient connections from cities nationwide. Complimentary snacks & beverages including Dunkin Donuts coffee plus complimentary entertainment at every seat with free movies, shows, music and live TV when in coverage zones. WIFI is always free on Jetblue.

Fascia Yoga with Ashley Black, “The Cellulite Myth (It’s not Fat its Fascia)”.

Ashley Black is considered the pre-eminent authority on the topic of Fascia. Like beauty and wellness trends before this, ala cupping and cryotherapy, Fascia blasting is the newest trend with celebs and regular folk alike.

What is Fascia? Ashley says “Fascia is the connective tissue in our body and it’s job is to support and protect muscles and organs. When our bodies experience any kind of injury the fascia contracts and distorts to offer support which can be painful and can also cause the appearance of cellulite”.

Fascia Yoga is a different way to stretch your entire body beyond creating flexibility in the muscles and joints. This method stretches the long lines of Fascia that runs along our entire bodies. Ashley designed a line of yoga equipment and products so that individuals can practice this at home without the expense of a doctor or a physical therapist. The FasciaYoga Ball ($25) is different than a regular stability ball because the grip of the material on the person’s skin or clothing simulates the manual stretching technique of a physical therapist.

Ashley designed a line of products designed to massage the fascia to lessen the appearance of cellulite, reduce pain, improve blood flow and increase flexibility. FasciaBlaster Tools include the Fasciablaster ($89), Mini 1 & 2 ($65), Faceblaster ($65), Masterblaster ($124.99), Party Blaster ($89), Blaster Oil & After Cream ($30).

Ashley’s #1 best selling book “The Cellulite Myth, It’s not fat it’s Fascia” is available here

To use these devices for maximum benefit warm up by :

  • Do light cardio for a few minutes and take a hot shower, bath, or sauna,
  • Apply blaster oil on bare clean skin.
  • Choose device to use for the session and start rolling the device over the area using up and down and side to side motions
  • Time to Recover: Bruises, Soreness, and Swelling are normal.

Dr.Konstantin Vasyukevich: Advanced Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon Upper East Side NYC

The Upper East Side, particularly Park ave in the 70’s and 80’s is the Rodeo Drive of who’s who in the plastic surgery world. Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich, who looks way too young to have achieved what he has to date is smack in the middle with an art filled office located at 59 east 79th street. He is a double certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation.
As an assistant clinical professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, he is at the forefront of the massive changes and technology that has evolved in the world of plastic surgery in the last year or two.
Specializing in face lifts, gone are the days where the stereotype of a face lift involves a pulled up face that has no movement, a long and painful recovery, and an end result where everyone knows you had work done. The new era of facelifts has a much younger clientele coming in for preventive work, facelifts have a greater effect and longer lifespan on a younger client because skin is still rather tight and recovery is faster on a younger healthier patient. Chatting with Dr. Konstantin the funniest story he told was of a patient who after getting a facelift done, was questioned by a TSA worker at the airport while traveling because her new face was 15 years younger looking than her Passport. 
The modern facelift assisted by an endoscope, developed by Dr. Konstantin, allows clearer visualization of the surgical area and it’s furthest points so that it’s minimally invasive. According to Dr. Konstantin, just in this year alone, facelifts are starting to be performed under guided local and twilight anesthesia which eliminates a fear factor in patients and greatly reduces recovery time. Above are before and after pics where the skin is lifted, the neck is tightened, but the faces have a natural aesthetic just with the clock turned back 10 to 15 years.
Dr. Konstantin also performs brow lifts, eyelid surgery, neck lifts, rhinoplasty an non- invasive Botox, Dermal Fillers and Skin Resurfacing.

Holiday Gift Guide 2017








Dr. Andrew Jacono: Master of the “Natural” looking facelift.

  • 170320_DrJacono_s2_104-768x1024Walking into the swanky brand new office of Dr. Andrew Jacono, 630 Park Avenue, we noticed Damien Hurst art on the walls, a sleek elegant decor, a VIP waiting room, and walls strewn with plaques showcasing the philanthropic work Dr. Jacono does in third world countries as a volunteer surgeon with “Beyond our Borders” and “Healing the Children”, providing free surgery here and abroad for children needing reconstruction due to birth defects, trauma, or disease. 

    Dr. Jacono is a dual certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial plastic surgery in his Manhattan location. He is prominently know for The Natural Looking facelift, making patients look up to 15 years younger without that pulled skin effect we have all seen on actresses and socialites. Looking at before and after photos on his computer, the transformations are truly amazing. The results are you, only better, well you 15 years ago. Natural best is his motto.

    Over a timespan of 20 years Dr. Jacono developed and perfected the most advanced deep plane lift. The procedure lifts the cheeks, jowls, and neck line. The key to a youthful appearance is a strong jawline and lack of jowls, even more important than wrinkle free foreheads or eyes. Incisions are made under the muscle layer leaving skin intact, unlike in a standard facelift. This creates a natural looking appearance without any tightness.

    Dr. J knows that not every patient is ready or wants a surgical face lift. He offers several non-surgical options using Ultherapy to lift, strengthen, and tone the skin. The treatment is 30 to 60 minutes, lasts 2 to 3 months with no downtime. Sculptra, known as the liquid facelift, builds collagen in cheeks, across the jawline and under the eyes. the injections create a rested rejuvenated appearance. A firm believer in a natural looking appearance he customizes filler dosages where needed on the face to not create an over filled face. Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiuses, and laser treatments are performed as well depending on the needs and goals of the patient.

    During the consultation the Doc explains the expected results and expectations for every procedure. He is brutally honest so that patients understand that fillers/non-surgical options are great,but they will not heed the same result as a lift. He explains the advantages of pro-active treatments to prevent aging and how work on younger patients can have better and longer lasting results.

    Dr. Jacono’s 3rd book “The Face of The Future” gives a more in-depth insight into the most modern/ hi -tech current invasive and non-invasive procedures available to maintain a youthful appearance. The book can be purchased here:

Fashion and Tech have joined forces and created the perfect bag for style and function. The Elektronista is a clutch and a crossbody bag in one made of soft buttery leather with a detachable strap and a built in battery and cable for charging on the go. The 5000mAh battery can charge a phone or a tablet. 


Every girl knows that a purse can become a messy nightmare but this clutch has multiple compartments that can fit a 10 inch tablet, credit cards, wires, makeup, and whole lot more. Everything is neat and organized and your tech gear is safe.

The elegant exterior with zippered sides, quality hardware and an edgy design make this clutch seasonless  and worth the investment for years of wear. Priced at $269 it can seem a little pricey but the quality and design make it totally worth it as a staple in your wardrobe. It can seamlessly transform from a work bag to an evening clutch.

Knomo  of London was founded in 2004 with a mission to create accessories that are beautiful and stylish yet functional. Knomo bags are available on, Amazon, Macys, Nordstrom and more. #Ad
