Hot stuff celebrities love



Butter London — recently seen on “Good Morning America” — sure is smooth. And we’re not talking food here. For spring, introduce your nails to the Starkers collection (nudes, get it?). For the upcoming summer line, inspiration came from weather South Floridians know well: glittery, coppery chocolate (Bit Faker); rosy gold like a sunset (Marbs); and a cool, oceany blue, appropriately called Poole. At GBS The Beauty Store.


Love adult beverages but hate the guilt? Miami Cocktail Company is getting known for its low-cal, ready to serve drinks sans carbs and sugar. First up are Piña Colada and Old Time Sweet Tea, which scream glam picnic with their old-school bottles. While they don’t contain sodium, additives or preservatives, either, these babies have bite, containing 15 percent premium alcohol but only 37 calories per serving. $14.99; www.miamicocktail.com, Vintage Liquors.


If you don’t have a trip for Spring Break coming up, escape with one of your senses: smell. Thymes’ Temple Tree Jasmine collection is meant to transport you to an exotic Asian garden. The flowery packaging is so delicate and gorgeous, you’ll want to reuse it as stationery. Try the soap, bubble bath, bath salts, cologne, home fragrance mist, candle, and, for your poor typing digits, a drenching hand lotion. $5-$33 at www.thymes.com


Celebrities have no time for such mundane activities as taking their daily vitamins. Favored by stars of “Twilight,” “Glee” and “The Voice,” alternaVites come in powder form and provide the same benefits of a multi without having to swallow a pill. The little packets, full of immune-system boosters, can be poured on yogurts and smoothies or right on the tongue for a quick health infusion. They have a kids’ version too. At Tunie’s in Coral Springs. www.alternavites.com


Addicted to food that’s salty sweet? So is Katy Perry. The I Kissed A Girl singer helped bring about the taste of a speciality popchips flavor called Katy’s Kettle Corn. She based the recipe on her favorite childhood snack and also designed the glittery hot and pink bag. What’s nice for those seeking to look decent during bikini season: Katy’s Kettle Corn has half the fat of fried chips and none of the phony flavors or colors. The gluten-free guiltless pleasure has only 130 calories per one oz. serving (about 16 chips) but no preservatives, trans or saturated fats .
