The new season of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami” premieres this weekend, which means I’ll be sitting inside my cold NYC apartment suffering from serious location envy. But even if I — and you — can’t fit in a jaunt to the southern Florida hot spot, doesn’t mean we can’t take some style cues from the city for which I’m sure the world “sultry” was invented. Think bright colors and lots of white, sequins and cutouts, extreme lengths — maxi or mini — and sandals and wedges that can be paired with anything. Now, if only the weather would warm up around these parts… Keep reading »
New mom Kourtney Kardashian was spotted in Miami this week wearing a fabulous printed mini dress, retro sunglasses, and a pair of gold knee-high gladiator sandals. I’m totally feeling the wild choice of footwear, especially (or maybe only) for a day out in Miami, but they’re definitely a lot of look. What do you guys think? Are Kourtney’s sandals a perfectly bold style for a boldly stylish city, or just too much? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
What’s in a nose? A Miami plastic surgeon doesn’t want a big schnoz to get in the way of true love, so he’s decided to offer members of his local Orthodox Jewish community free or greatly reduced nose jobs in order to increase their chances at finding a mate.
Dr. Michael Salzhauer is an Orthodox Jew, and a father of five, so he feels it’s perfectly reasonable and respectable to offer the service to bad-nose-having members of his community. But others say it’s rather tacky and controversial.

Forbes just released their annual list of the most miserable cities in the U.S., and this year’s winner might come as a surprise: Miami, land of sunshine, palm trees, and white sand beaches. How did a city that once had a full song dedicated to it on “Big Willie Style” becoming the reigning metropolis of misery? Well, quite a few factors contributed to the decision: unemployment rates, violent crime, taxes, home prices, and commute times. And while the super-rich continue to party ’til the break of dawn, Miami’s working class struggles with serious issues such as a foreclosure crisis that has claimed 364,000 homes since 2008. Compelling evidence for sure, but it’s always hard to know how much stock to put into these kinds of lists. Any readers from Miami want to weigh in? [Forbes]

A study came out this week proving what anyone who’s ever lived in The Big Apple probably already guessed: Manhattan is the nation’s thinnest city. The study looked at body-mass indexes of folks all across the country, and determined that New Yorkers tended to be the slimmest. Still, 42 percent of Manhattanites are overweight or obese—but that’s not bad when you compare it to the national average of 67 percent. So why all the skinny minnies in New York City? Because New York is a hub for many weight-conscious industries, like modeling, acting, and media production. Also, because almost no one owns a car, people end up walking everywhere. Oh, and maybe people are trying to become the physical equivalent of skyscrapers? [New York Times] Keep reading »
Hey guys, did ya notice that lull in posts there for awhile? That’s because we took a little trip down to Miami and will be blogging from there the rest of the week (I know, life sucks SO MUCH sometimes). Forgive us if we’re not quite as prolific the next few days — we’ll still be blogging as usual, just with a few mojito-filled siesta breaks. Keep reading »
In the words of the great Will Smith, “Welcome to Miami…” where people really do party “all night on the beach ‘til the break of dawn.” As the sun gloriously beats down, the streets are lined with so many al fresco diners and strolling locals that you start to wonder if anyone actually works in this town. But really, how can they? With its tropical climate, gorgeous inhabitants, fiery cuisine and – Will would be amiss if we didn’t mention them – white-sand beaches, it’s no wonder why Miami clocks in as America’s sexiest city. So grab your sunscreen (extra SPF here!) and hang on while The Frisky shows you how to get a taste of the real Miami heat with these sizzlin’ South Florida hot spots.
