Which, I suppose, Chef Romeo could be considered.

For the Love of Beer

For-the-Love-of-Beer-Header-REVISED

One of the greatest things going on in Miami lately is the burgeoning food and beer scene. It’s not a trend. It’s not a gimmick. What feels like an overdue movement for those of us who have grown up here has finally come to pass – we’re moving forward. We’re creating a scene. And that scene is here to stay, making quality craft beer and exciting gourmet the new standard around this city.

Tourist for a Day

Miami-Film-Month-Bus-Tour-The-Daily-Melt-Wynwood

There’s something to be said for seeing your city as a foreigner. More precisely, as a full-blown tourist from the second floor of a double-decker bus. I wore my best attempt at a kitschy ensemble and joined the rest of a very international group for a day of rediscovering my town. I’ve gotta admit, Miami; you’ve never looked better.

Vixen for a Day

Official Vixen Workout | Miami + Bubbles & Ink Blog CoverGirl Event

Saturday afternoon found me reminiscing on the blur that was my early twenties: I hunted for parking around South Beach for about twenty minutes, touched up my makeup in the car, and stood in line on Washington Avenue to get into the hottest party. This time, however, it was the Vixen Workout that was holding a line to rival that of any tourist trap on the beach. And the twerking was in full force, as expected. My early twenties may be a distant memory, but I was able to channel all my cheer/dance/club girl days to get through one of the most intense workouts I’ve had in a while. Read on for tips on how to survive your first Vixen experience.
