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."

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?

    This year's Miami Spice could use a phone book just to list the restaurants taking part, more than a hundred. Which means filling up on three courses for only $39 bucks. And at some places, that means saving a whole lot of money.
