Seven Miami Beach and Key West restaurants named the best in the entire United States



Seven Miami Beach and Key West restaurants should be preening right about now, because they’ve been named some of the best restaurants in the country.

Tripadvisor has announced its 2021 Travelers’ Choice Restaurants Awards, for which diners rate restaurants in eight categories: Fine Dining, Everyday Dining and Quick Bites, plus new categories Hottest New Restaurants, Picture-Perfect Restaurants, Best Vegan Spots, Best Brunch Spots and Date Night.

First There Was OnlyFans, and Then There Was Instagram




In true Faceb…Meta fashion, OnlyFans key feature is being cherry-picked in a move to bring creator subscriptions to Instagram.

If you have it, Meta wants it too. First was Snapchat’s stories before TikToks was transformed into reels, and how could we forget Facebook’s dreaded marketplace? It was only a matter of time before IG introduced its own subscription service, given the immense revenue opportunities afforded to creators on OnlyFans.

Looking through the details of the announcement, the subscription service, which is first being implemented in the US via select creators, will follow a model bearing the most similarities to Patreon.

🎉 Subscriptions 🎉

Subscriptions allow creators to monetize and become closer to their followers through exclusive experiences:

– Subscriber Lives

– Subscriber Stories

– Subscriber Badges

We hope to add more creators to this test in the coming months. More to come. ✌🏼

Once the service is made available to them, creators will be able to add a subscription button to their profiles and set a monthly cost of their choosing.

In a bid to offer a more intimate form of engagement on the platform, those that subscribe will receive access to exclusive lives, stories, and badges.

This model has been utilized via Patreon by podcasters and Youtubers for quite some time, allowing creators to offer different tiers of rewards, including exclusive content, previews, and access to Discord servers.

Though this model is nothing particularly new, it’ll provide influencers and creators on the platform the opportunity for a new revenue stream. Taking into consideration how much the current algorithm favors paid sponsorships and marketplace content can affect potential engagement-based revenue opportunities, this is a big win for the platform’s users.

There’s no indication as to when these features will roll out globally, and in the meantime, remain in the testing stages for a handful of US users.

The question is – which app’s core function will Meta come for next?

No-One Pairs Shirts and Hoodies Like A$AP Rocky, But We’re Gonna Try




Imagine it’s 2015. A$AP Rocky has just performed with 21 Pilots at the VMA awards wearing a Gosha Rubchinsky tracksuit layered under a plaid shirt — an outfit that all of Instagram agrees is fire.

Since that mid-2010s style moment, wearing a flannel shirt and a hoodie has transcended from being a weird styling choice to one that we wouldn’t think twice about doing. And Rocky has continued to show us how it’s done.

Worn in the music video for Tony Tone and L$D, at the launch event for his Guess Originals collaboration, or while doing some charity work, it has kind of become one of his style trademarks. And his latest masterclass in matching a flannel shirt with a hoodie came from a date night with Rihanna.

For his latest pairing, the A$AP Mob frontman opted for a hoodie from one of his favorite designers, Raf Simons. The green hoodie comes from one of the Belgian designer’s most lauded shows, his FW2001 collection dubbed “riot riot riot”. Yeah, the show where the infamous camo bomber jacket came from.

Partially hiding this Raf grail was a blue, red, and yellow flannel shirt that was layered on top of it. Of course, any outfit that includes a flannel shirt is likely to warrant a Kurt Cobain comparison and the ripped wide-leg jeans that Rocky opted for only added a further grunge element.

The early 2010s are set for a comeback this year as a development of the Y2K trend that has been rife in fashion and it looks like Rocky is joining us in reminiscing over the era that he introduced us to pairing hoodies and flannel shirts. Could we even go as far as saying this latest look is a little bit indie sleaze?

While none of us are ever going to rock a flannel shirt and hoodie as well as the A$AP Mob frontman, we are going to give it a go with the combinations below.
