Martha Dominguez, a Miami fashion blogger, is a 30 something gal that grew up in Indiana and made her way to crazy Miami Beach back in 1999. She met a boy name Ivo, they fell in love, got married in Paris (but of course!) and began working on her blog back in 2008.
In 2013, she began her latest role as a mom to little Mia. She’s also got two crazy long haired chihuahuas that drive her beyond crazy but they’re ridiculously cute so she can’t hate them. She loves classic styles, good blow outs, manicured nails, bold red wines, every genre of music (yes, every…okay, she hates heavy metal but other than that she’s into it), the French culture especially the language, reading a good book (although that’s become rare since Mia’s arrival), traveling, lunching with good friends, long bike rides, documentaries, learning, stationery, vintage jewelry, fresh cut flowers, a clean house, freshly pressed sheets, silks and cottons, sparkly things, laughter and Miami. She really loves Miami.
PS…below is the actual blog entry she wrote in 2008…the very first thing ever posted. It will be kept up for memory’s sake
February 27th, 2008
Wow…I must say, it feels good to have a place of my own…for my words. I have a fabulous apartment, a reliable car, amazing shoes…all the necessities in life, except I never had a home for my words.
And now, here it is. It’s just little old me, my crazy and sometimes rambling thoughts and my constant hunger for knowledge…okay, who am I kidding.
Not knowledge, just good old fashioned artery clogging gossip.
This little place we like to called SOBE has got more layers than a homemade lasagna.
The people, the big fish in small pond syndrome, the air kisses and botox smiles…it’s all here.
Love it or leave it, I chose to love it and deal with it.
It’s not all superficial, after all…we do now have a Performing Arts center over the bridge and through the woods. That’s gotta count for something, right? I mean, we’re cultured people, damn it!
Of course, we still wonder why Johnny Depp wasn’t on the Playbill for the performance of Sweeny Todd, but we’re making progress.
I hope to be here (with you…all three of you, Mom that means you too) more often than not. I need to have a garage sale on that space that is my mind and what better place to sell my schlock than here.
I got useless information and hypocritical opinions that need to be heard.
