Nowadays it seems you can have anything delivered to you without having to get up from the couch or put any clothes on -- except maybe to answer the door.

Pizza? Check. Arepas stuffed with chicken and avocado salad? Check. Booze? Check. Your own personal Swedish massage therapist? Check.

Taking care of that last one is Zeel Massage on Demand, which promises to deliver a massage therapist to your apartment within the hour of you booking the massage through their handy app that alleviates the need for any kind of in person transaction. Hello, technology.

Categories: Lifestyle

Traffic on Biscayne Boulevard was horrendous this weekend, and with good reason. Oprah Winfrey, AKA God Herself, was in town to speak at the American Airlines Arena. Most graciously, she let a hoard of women and some gay men in on her secrets to a successful and fulfilling life, and if anyone knows how to achieve success and fulfillment, it's Oprah.

For the mindful individual, it was a lot of sage advice you may have heard before, but sage advice nonetheless. More than anything, Oprah's Live The Life You Want Weekend is a chance to see and hear the wondrous Winfrey in the flesh. Even we, in all our cynical glory, were moved by the mogul's comforting mix of wit, wisdom, and realness.

As it turns out, Oprah is that amazing. We totally get it.

Great news, gals: Miami is one of the nation's sugar daddy capitals. In a new study published by dating site Seeking Arrangement, Miami comes in at number 28 of 30 national cities that are the best spots to find that forever financier love.

We're actually a little surprised the Magic City didn't rank higher -- though this city is full of bros living at home and those spending all their income on car payments. Atlanta, it turns out, is the sugar daddy mecca, with the highest ratio of 19.84 sugar daddies per 1,000 males.

Every week there's an arbitrary new ranking released by some dubious website or publication: Miami ranks last in number of Ivy Leaguers, first in number of Brazilian butt lifts. It's great fodder, but how does Miami stack up when it comes to the stuff that actually matters?

Last night at the Bakehouse Art Complex, the Miami Foundation revealed the findings of a new report outlining how Miami is doing in eight key areas: arts & culture, civic engagement, economy, education, environment & public spaces, health & safety, housing & affordability, and transportation. There was lots to talk about.

With all the fuss about what goes into our bodies, it's easy to forget about what goes on them. Given that our skin is the largest organ (and arguably the most sensitive), it's just as important to read the labels on beauty products as it is on foodstuffs.

Luckily, green beauty is everywhere. New companies offering good-for-you cosmetic products are popping up all the time and come October 3, you can check out some of these local brands at Miami's first Green Beauty Night Out.
