Yacht Magic: An insider’s guide to getting the most out of the Miami International...

Since not everyone has the same taste in boats, Miami has not one but two boat shows taking place the same weekend. If you’re being picky, you could say it actually has three shows, each at a separate location. From trailerable runabouts to magnificent superyachts, plus a flotilla of sailboats, this weekend truly has something for everyone. To make it even better, these shows also feature stunning collections of food, clothing, accessories, art, music and endless photo opps for the entire family.

Insider Talk

Real estate moguls often have personalities as large as the projects they invest in and the developments they produce. The following are their thought-provoking, insightful and occasionally humorous outspoken words.

Automotive Artistry

Once every year, the grounds of Boca Raton Resort & Club showcase an unrivaled collection of the world’s rarest, finest and most exotic cars. This year’s event, hosted by Jay Leno, is a must-attend for car and motorcycle aficionados.

Dancing Feet

Ever wonder just who is dancing on the side of the InterContinental Miami? Each year, the hotel hosts a Skyline Dancers competition and this year they took it to social media where people all over the world could submit video auditions for their chance to win a spot on the side of the building for the calendar year.

Iron It Out

Without adequate iron — essential for the production of hemoglobin, which helps your red blood cells distribute oxygen to your body — anemia can develop. Iron deficiency is one of the most common ailments of our time. The following are signs that your iron count might not be where it needs to be.

Perfect Bed

Haven’t had a great night’s sleep in a long time? Well, neither have I...until now. I feel like I want to shout and tell the world about a new mattress that was delivered to my home just a few weeks ago that has allowed me to sleep like a baby ever since.

Sophisticated Inspiration

Fueled by the passion of Fine Art Photographer Laurie Lynn Stark and her daughter, Jesse Jo, Chrome Hearts’ Design District location is home to both emerging and established artists and designers handpicked to create pieces exclusively for the space.

Outstanding Selection

Watches reveal our personality, but you need more than one. For example, the Rolex President worn in the office doesn’t represent your weekend persona. Yachtsmen might choose a Rolex Submariner while sportscar types strap on a Rolex Daytona.

The creative eye behind some of South Florida’s most beautiful commercial photography belongs to award-winning photographer Mike Butler. A gentle soul with a keen sense of beauty, he captures moments in all their glory.

Skip This, Gift That

Dudes, listen up: Shopping for a Valentine’s Day gift can be overwhelming. So many flowers, so many chocolates, so many forced romantic dinners and so little direction.

Wedded Bliss

Life with my wife is full of surprises. From the moment I proposed to her at a crowded McDonald’s in India during a rare hail-filled summer sandstorm and lunar eclipse on a day that is the same forward and backward an hour before our flight back home, I knew our life together would be anything but ordinary.

For the better part of a century, the Old-Fashioned has been starring in cocktails around America and abroad. This year, take it into the future with a little extra kick.

Drinks On You

We’ve all evolved our bar tastes at one point or another throughout our lives. The Jäger Bombs downed in college or the Happy Hour rail drinks ordered during the first couple of years in the workforce to save a little cash just don’t cut it anymore. Or maybe they do. Either way, it’s OK.

Mind Your Manners

Nobody wants to take on the role of Etiquette Police at the table — but just because no one’s saying anything when a fine dining faux pas makes polite stomachs turn, doesn’t mean that everyone isn’t wishing someone had taught the perpetrator some manners.

Hearth, Home & Biochemistry

The place you call home has a direct affect on your quality of life. The reason this is so is simple is because our surroundings dictate how life unfolds.

Mystery, Mint Tea & Marrakech
