To be healthy, eat lots of fruits and vegetables. To be one of a kind, wear them. We caught up with a Miami designer at the InterContinental Hotel in Miami, where she showed us the fruits of her labor.

When life gives you lemons, make a fabulous necklace, dawling.

Liliana Salazar: "They are basically multiple necklaces layered on each other, and they have lemons and limes, and that's the design that you see. The earrings are also a full slice of a lemon or a lime."

Liliana Salazar makes accessories out of the best stuff nature has to offer.

Liliana Salazar: "I'm inspired by so many different things. It ranges from nature to being around my family. Just really good positive energy can inspire a thought."

Her line is called Artesanias

Liliana Salazar: "Artesanias is made by artesanos, so they're artisans that have years of experience in Colombia, and the craftsmanship that they have is one of a kind."

Don't get that twisted. Liliana gets all her ideas from the Magic City.

Liliana Salazar: "Miami is such a huge source of inspiration. It's always sexy, vibrant in color, and I feel like Miami just exudes that."

So from citrusy deliciousness...

Liliana Salazar: "All orange peels, so they are actually rolled and hand colored."

To people-say-its-a-veggie-but-it's-really-a-fruit tomatoes.

Liliana Salazar: "She is wearing tomatoes and kamajuru seed as well. The earrings are made out of seed pods that actually, when they dry, they curl up, and that is the natural effect that you see as is. And then they're deep dyed in an eco-friendly dye."

Go ahead and bite into some fresh kiwi while you wear it on your neck.

Liliana Salazar: "They are typically covered in resin, and that's what preserves the fruit."

And if your favorite fruit is pear...

Liliana Salazar: "The pears are specifically sliced extremely thin, so that way they're really lightweight."

Speaking of lightweight, take a look at this light purse.

Liliana Salazar: "The purse is made out of ' caña flecha.' That's actually a traditional material that is used to make the Colombian 'sombrero volteado.'"

All the accessories this girl is wearing come from a palm tree.

Liliana Salazar: "She's wearing a beautiful 'tagua' necktie, so it's adjustable so you can wear it as a choker as well as the length that you see that she's wearing. Her earrings are coconut."

Everything is comfy and won't make you go hungry, if you know what I mean.

Liliana Salazar: "My accessories are not expensive. That's actually the whole concept behind it: It's beautiful, wearable art and at affordable rates and prices, so that's hopefully something that anybody can afford."

    The Return of the Crop Top

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    When it comes to the movie "Hercules," the big man on screen and the bigwig behind the scenes have more than the movie in common. They share a love of the same hometown.

    You can work up a great big hunger when you're an action hero, especially if you're playing a guy who's half man, half god. Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson gets really hungry in his latest movie, "Hercules." Our So-Flo homeboy had to stay pretty jacked for the role. That meant watching his diet, but when it was finally time to let loose, he knew just where to go.

    Singing in public can sometimes be very embarrassing, which is why tequila was invented. Or you could go a bit more private. At our new favorite karaoke place, invite your friends and family, grab a few tequila shots and a mic, and suddenly become a superstar.
