More than 10,000 yellow rubber ducks will take over CityPlace as part of the annual Ducky Derby benefitting Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches on March 8. Community members are invited to “adopt-a-duck” to support the cause, and the “parents” of ducks plucked from the pack will receive prizes – the grand prize totaling $5,000 (duckrace.com/aaf-lakeworth).
Fragrances and finds
Scents of lavender and fresh cotton greet guests as they enter Fine Linens on Gallery Square South in Tequesta. The quaint boutique, brightened by natural light, showcases two bed displays with attractive sheets, comforters and toppings that tempt customers to climb in. Tall shelves along the store perimeter play host to linens, wall décor, furniture, light fixtures, bathrobes, candles and more.

As I write this, I am surrounded by boxes, lost in a sea of bubble wrap and masking tape. My final architectural plan is still taped to the hallway wall, with additional notes and changes inked in red marker, even after six months of contemplation and more than a dozen iterations. Folders of design photos ripped from magazines lay amongst the clutter and dozens of idea books have been created on Pinterest and Houzz.
Life is so busy these days. It’s definitely easier to stay in touch with friends through social media, but for those special people in your life, replenishing the relationship with a face-to-face connection is a must. But it can be difficult to find a place and time with no distractions.
For an instant remedy, take time to indulge in a “girls’ day out,” or as I have coined it, “GDO.”
Take advantage of nutritional consultations prior to the cleanse.
Eat light, vegan foods before and after your cleanse to ease in and out of the cleanse. Avoid gluten and processed foods.
Only choose organic food and juices, otherwise you will be putting toxins and pesticides back into your body.
If you are very hungry, have a green apple or a handful of organic hemp seeds. Remember you are doing this cleanse because you love your body, so listen to it.
