About the speaker
Read our Urban Outfitters interview and join us this Friday for an experience!
Fashion, art, poetry, life….
Our names are Tea and Ziggy, short forms of our actual first names, Timisha and Xiomara. We always go by the shorthand versions because our given names are difficult for people to spell and even harder for them to pronounce!
Our grass-roots movement is known as kinsoul. “Kin” refers to the idea that we are all one tribe, one family, and one human unit, and the “soul” portion of the name speaks for the truest inner form of every human - their most creative and passionate being. The idea behind kinsoul is to inspire, lead, and cultivate other spiritually-inclined creatives to follow their passions and live life to the fullest extent of their dreams. We intend to turn our own passions of art, design, and writing, and our family ideals of plant-based eating and home-educating into a sustainable and inspirational platform that will inspire others to follow their truest paths in life while creating a community of conscious souls and spiritual humanitarians.
The Arts + Entertainment District is a dynamic urban residential neighborhood connecting the Wynwood Arts District and Design District to downtown Miami. Due to the recent explosive growth in these bordering districts, The Arts + Entertainment District has enjoyed a renaissance in its residential, culinary, entertainment and nightlife offerings. The centerpiece of the District is CANVAS, a new art-inspired condominium offering a “bohemian luxe” lifestyle immersed in the local art scene and surrounded by hip restaurants, speakeasy-inspired bars and world-class performance venues.
Rising 37 stories, the CANVAS condominium tower, developed by NR Investments, is on track for completion in Q1 of next year, with its topping off slated for this August. Located at the crossroads of two of Miami’s most dynamic, creative neighborhoods – Wynwood and the Arts + Entertainment District – the building boasts a modern design with artist-crafted interiors and views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, the City skyline, and exceptional, unobstructed sunset views. Featuring one- and two-bedroom units as well as studio apartments, CANVAS offers a “bohemian luxe” lifestyle immersed in the local art scene and surrounded by gourmet restaurants, speakeasy-inspired bars and world-class performance venues. Amenities include sunrise and sunset pool decks, a serene indoor/outdoor yoga garden, a state-of-the-art gym, a glass-enclosed racquetball court, Zen spa/sauna treatment rooms, and a multimedia screening and theater facility. A Metromover stop is steps from CANVAS, as are recreational facilities and major thoroughfares, including I-95, I-395 and I-195. Prices for residences in the art and design-inspired dwelling range from $300,000 to $580,000, with sizes encompassing 620 sq. ft. to 1,110 sq. ft. Sales at CANVAS are being brokered by Fortune International Realty.

Vice City Bean opened in 2016 in Miami’s Arts & Entertainment District. Our vision was to create a neighborhood coffee bar where people could gather or stop by and grab a really good cup of coffee, served by really nice people. Its that simple.
We’re located on the NE corner of the Filling Station Lofts building. Come by and say hello.
My oldest son Luke was 18 months and he was not talking. He had a speech delay and I started researching about diets that would help him develop his speech. I came across the Gluten Free Casein Free Diet. Luke had an allergy to dairy since birth, but I didn’t know much about anything gluten free.
When I started searching for places to make the cake (gluten free and dairy free) for him, nobody at the time knew what I was talking about. I knew there was a necessity in having a local bakery/baker that could provide this. So I called my grandmother and she gave me some cake recipes that I transformed into vegan and/or gluten free recipes. I went online and looked for a domain and www.bunniecakes.com was available (I don’t know how I came up with that name but I thought it sounded cute).
