As I tend to do, I’ve fallen a bit behind on my blogging. But, as promised, here is the winner of my highly prestigious and lucrative design contest: Gaius Benbow, who incidentally is the recent fiance of my good friend and Little Me, Big You blogger, Nadia Payan. Conflict of interest you say!? Not if he was the ONLY one to submit a legitimate entry. Thanks a lot internets.
Do you consider yourself somewhat of an artist? Do you enjoy ethnic food that has been mutated and watered down to suit your blunt American palate? Do you have trouble feeding yourself on a regular basis? Well my friend, this opportunity is for you. The Suit in Sneakers needs a logo. Not just The Suit blog, but The Suit me, which is why I’m holding an open design competition. Anybody from the interwebs can throw their hat in the ring for the grand prize of dinner for two at a local family eatery of your choosing. The only restriction is that you choose a place with crazy crap on the walls, as those tend to be more affordable then say, a place that doesn’t have crazy crap on the walls.
Part of the campaign for the much anticipated Ford Fiesta is the Fiesta Movement, which involves 100 “agents” performing special missions and then posting content about them online. Miami has its very own Fiesta agent in popular local blogger Maria from Sex and the Beach. She recently completed her second Fiesta mission; a geocaching adventure that took her through some of South Florida’s most scenic yet relatively undiscovered locales. Hit the jump for the video.
The countdown has begun. On September 28th I set sail from San Diego to Isla Guadalupe, a remote island off of Mexico with one of the highest seasonal concentrations of GREAT WHITE SHARKS on the planet. Yes, I will be in the water with them. And yes, the water may become slightly warmer when I lay eyes on my first shark.
Laura Martinez from Mi Blog es Tu Blog never disappoints in posting the most ridiculous Hispanic news from the furthest corners of the interwebs. Today she posted a video from the cutting edge journalists at NBC’s Today show about the “emerging” Hispanic market. I laughed, I cried, I shook my head in disbelief. See the video below.
I was browsing through the New Times’ Best of Miami 2009 issue, when I came across an interesting category: Best Local Girl Makes Good. The award went to a Debbie Attias, a former rapper who is now biking across the country to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund. A worthy feat no doubt, but I recently learned of a Miami girl who’s ‘made good’ on a much larger stage. Dr. Mireya Mayor is an anthropologist and one of the star explorers in the History Channel’s new series Expedition Africa.
