In between fixing up rich people and tending to her own boyfriend, Patti Stanger focuses on herself. The formerly frumpy Millionaire Matchmaker has been tweeting her “obsession” for USANA Health Sciences’ new, gluten-free brownie protein snacks. The Fudge Delite bars are filling, high in protein, low in calories, and more importantly, stave off the sweet tooth. Box of 14 is $32.95 at www.usana.com
There were other things to look at besides all the hardbodies at Sweat USA expo over the weekend in Miami Beach. Visitors wanted to see the brightly colored iSport Freedom wireless headphones by Monster. They’re already a hit with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who grooves with the water- resistant, anti-microbial ear cushions and sweet sound. $249 at BestBuy, Target and Amazon. www.monsterproducts.com
While we barely get “fall” in South Florida, we can pretend we’ve changed seasons by surrounding ourselves with all things pumpkin. From a spicy latte at your local Starbucks to the Jack-O-Lantern grinning on your lawn. You can even get into the spirit with your beauty products. Celebrity favorite June Jacobs has what ails our subtropically parched skin: the Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque packs a powerful punch to stimulate cell turnover, helping improve tone and texture. The added olfactory bonus doesn’t hurt.
