Originally from England, actress (Once Upon a Time, Burn Notice) and philanthropist Gabrielle Anwar now calls Miami home. She’s discovered a plethora of places that keep her lifestyle effortlessly chill:
The Dog Groomer
“Luisito at Lovely Pets Grooming Salon is not only a groomer — he will deliver dog food, treats on the side, and he’ll remind me when to do flea medications. It’s like having a dog nanny.” 3098 Fuller Street, Suite 10, Coconut Grove; 305-476-8980; lovelypetsgroomingsalon.com.
“The Make-A-Wish Foundation is so important to my husband, [Shareef Malnik], and I’ve become very emotionally attached to the concept of healing these children while they’re suffering such horrific twists of fate.” 954-967-9474; sfla.wish.org.
“We use the EzFill gas app. Shareef said, ‘Go to bed, and when you wake up, your car will be filled.’ I thought that was quite brilliant. It’s like the gas fairy!” 305-791-1169; ezfillapp.com.
“I explored cocktails that had a tequila base and discovered the Paloma. It’s basically just tequila, grapefruit juice and a little agave sweetener. It’s become my go-to drink at The Forge.” 432 West 41st Street, Miami Beach; 305-538-8533; theforge.com.
“We’re hearing so many good things about Vitamin C. No BS’s Vitamin C+E Serum is amazing, and I will just rub it on my face throughout the day.” livenobs.com.
“If you want the extremes of very female-friendly Krav Maga and Gyrotonics, there’s only one place to go: Rinaldi Performance. Owner Melanie is a veteran of adoring women, of supporting women, of giving them tremendous amounts of strength.” 2753 Southwest 27th Avenue, Miami; 786-423-8314; rinaldiperformance.com.
“I can fill my whole wardrobe from At Ease, which is very unusual for me, to go to a store and be able to pull an entire outfit. I love cashmere, I love cotton, I love natural silk; fabrics that are easy to wear.” 5844 Sunset Drive, South Miami; 305-662-1022; ateaseonsunset.com.
“Gleam Hair Studio feels like stepping into a popular, humming salon in Paris. Not only due to Carole Hakoun’s effortless Parisian charm. One steps out feeling just a little more chic, a little more confident, a little more, well, French.” 7287 Southwest 57th Avenue, South Miami; 305-667-7008; gleamhairstudio.com.
