Erika Boom is not only a fitness enthusiast but also a mom (to 3-year-old Oliver). The Coral Gables resident who opened Belly-n-Kicks prenatal workout studio in 1993, has entered the apparel biz. The Fit Mama line is stretchy, colorful and way cuter than most maternity stuff you see out there. So hold onto it even after the bambino comes out. There are things for dads, too. www.belly-n-kicks.com

Time to think about dear old mom: Mother’s Day is May 11 and here’s an quick and easy idea from Tory Burch Beauty: the limited edition Tory Burch Eau de Parfum Rollerball, a purse size version of the designer’s signature fragrance. Fifty percent of the price ($25) will be donated to the Tory Burch Foundation, the designer’s nonprofit that supports the economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs and their families in the U.S. At Tory Burch stores, www.toryburch.com


2014 is turning out to be ombre’s year. The low-maintenance trend, a French term for shade or shadow, features darker hues at the roots with gradual lightening at the ends. The edgy hair style has been spotted on celebs from Chanel Iman and Sarah Hyland to Mr. Bruce Jenner (granted, maybe not the best example). Plenty of beauty brands are helping you test out the look at home, like L’oreal Paris, which just came out with a DIY kit, the Superior Preference Ombré Touch.

Talk about a multitasker. Nars Cosmetics has brightened the season with some nifty Matte Mutiples, color for your cheeks, eyes, lips and even body. Didn’t get to take a spring break to the Bahamas? Look in your makeup drawer for a quick getaway. We like the flattering to almost everyone shade: Exumas, for a perfectly sunkissed look. $39; www.narscosmetics.com, counters


Newly opened Orange Blossom, 2000 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, is not your run of the mill, flashy SoBe spot. The cool little restaurant was thought up by nightlife guru Tatanka Guerrero of Favela Beach at Wall fame, who was influenced by The Orange Blossom Special, the 19th century luxury passenger train that connected New York to Miami and the subject of a favored Johnny Cash song. Try the signature mint julep type cocktail then dive into Florida black grouper to be truly transported.
