    Lifestyle manager Amaris Jones said last night she learned her craft from one of the most demanding celebrity VIPs: P. Diddy.

    "I'm never bored," she said Thursday night."I always expect the unexpected."

    The manager-to-the-stars hosted an event at La Perla last night to raise money for the organization "Dress for Success," and she dished on what it's like to cater to Miami VIPs -- from finding a home to dropping rose petals from a helicopter to accommodating last-minute requests.

    "A half hour before kick off, a client called me and requested Super Bowl tickets on the first five rows," she said. 

    Amaris developed her chops as P. Diddy's estate manager before she decided to branch out on her own. She's now the CEO of Elite Home and Lifestyle Management. 

    "I was learning how celebrities work and how the show ran," she said. "He threw me in there. I just had to roll with the punches." 

    Now with offices in L.A. and NYC, Amaris says Miami will always be her home base. For more than six years she has made it her business to know the ins and outs of every aspect of the Magic City in order to keep her clients happy.

    "You have to know everyone in this city," Jones said. "I am familiar with all the boutique owners, grocery store owners, private jet companies, car service companies, you name it."
