Muscle Relief

Exercise does the body good, but it can cause harm as well, leaving you feeling too achy to work out again too quickly after a workout. The Theragun Pro is ready to help ease your pains and get you back into action.

High Achievers

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest honor a girl can earn in Girl Scouts. This year, 16 girls from our community earned their Gold Award, and three are being nominated for national recognition.

Giving a rescue dog a home comes with a great sense of fulfillment, a feeling that becomes even stronger as you watch how they flourish when they are given the love and attention they deserve.

Onward!

As we say farewell to the summer that never was, I’m optimistic for a Fall that does NOT live up to its name.

Let the Sunshine In

Miami continued to showcase its resiliency to the world throughout the scorching hot summer months, confirming yet again that we are truly all in this together and brighter days are just on the horizon.

Sunny Days

From retail therapy to sports and museums to cruises, Miami is eager to get back into action — both virtually and IRL. We’ve always thought outside-the-box at the tip of The Sunshine State and this month is no different.

Braise On!

Slow-cooked, hearty, indulgent and oh-so-savory — braised short ribs are not only one of the quintessential American comfort staples, but a classic dish that’s trending again in the culinary world.

Summer Sippin’

Grab a bottle of lime cordial (or make your own!) and your favorite gin next time you’re hosting a BBQ and wait for everyone to praise you for your excellent mixologist skills — because when it comes to mixing up a Gimlet, you can’t go wrong.

Virtual World

With advances in technology and corporate attitudes increasingly accepting of telecommuting, more people will be working from home than ever. This year, what is being dubbed as “the world’s largest social experiment” in the first and second quarter has fast-tracked this trend toward digital connectivity, delivery of services and a new “business as usual.”

Island Dreaming

There is no shortage of watery adventures to be had in the BVI — year-round perfect weather, world-class accommodations, friendly locals and memories galore. What are you waiting for? The vacation of a lifetime awaits.

Aquatic Ecstasy

Sailing, live-aboard charters, regattas and poker runs. Unparalleled snorkeling and diving spectacular wrecks and reefs, kite and paddle festivals, and so much more. The breathtaking seabound adventures of the British Virgin Islands are ready to provide your next adventure.

Best Years

Senior dogs bring their own strong set of benefits and often assimilate into the family faster with their mature good manners and grateful attitude. Senior dogs need love and snuggles too!

Home Enrichment

A custom bar and a beautiful pantry are just as essential to the haute home as California Closets’ famous closet spaces. Both can now be created via “virtual design” consultations, or as in the case of the pantry, created for self-installation by way of the newly introduced The Everyday System.

Rapid Evolution

As we find ourselves well into the second half of 2020, a lot of us are demanding a do-over, to press the proverbial reset button and go back in time to the way things used to be.

Murray Ocular Oncology & Retina, a leader in retina specialty care, and its founder Dr. Timothy Murray, President of the American Society of Retina Specialists, provide heroic service with exemplary patient care practices.

Bright Outlook

While Miami takes pandemics seriously, we also bounce back in Magic City style. From April Fool’s Day to Easter and National Raisin Day on the 30th, the second month of spring — a term loosely used in always-summer South Florida — is packed with possibilities, opportunities and just plain fun.

The Joys Of Giving

Can money buy happiness? It surely can, if you’re giving it to a good cause. A National Institutes Of Health study found that when people give to charities, it activates regions of the brain associated with pleasure, social connection and trust, creating a “warm glow” effect. Scientists also believe that altruistic behavior releases endorphins in the brain, producing the positive feeling known as “helper’s high.”

Influencers and bloggers changed our lives in the last decade. They’ll be of even more importance in the years to come. Here are a few cool trends and corresponding bloggers to look out for this year.

Haute Hounds

Social media is a dog’s best friend. Most shelters focus their limited resources on caring for the pets.

Dream Realized

Slow Burn Theatre was born when Patrick Fitzwater and Matthew Korinko noticed a theatrical void in South Florida and made the commitment to fill it. Ten years later, they’re a key player in the local theatre scene.

Brush Strokes

Carla Fache’s paintings explore the frontiers of color, space, balance and matter. Different visual scenarios, occurring simultaneously in parallel realities, provide interconnecting timelines through her canvas as portals to new dimensions.

Grown-Up Behavior

Two-year old dogs are great. They’re already housetrained and some can even “sit,” “stay” and do tricks. You won’t have to deal with the “puppy phase” of biting, chewing, etc. Plus, you’ll be able to determine the dog’s personality and won’t have to wait to see what you get.
