TRENDING LIFESTYLE Buzz Around Town We are seeing more and more that our future is heav- ily rooted in technology and electricity. The automotive business is no different. Victory of Miami has an excit- ing new toy on their showroom floor called the GEM Electric Car. The GEM Electric Car is a low-speed vehicle capable of speeds up to 25 m.p.h. It is street legal on roads with posted speed limits of 35 m.p.h. or less. It has a range of about 35 miles when fully charged and a cargo capacity ranging from 330-1,100 lbs. It certainly has enough power for popping down the street to visit friends, doing a quick grocery store run, or even head¬ ing over to the beach. Go Auto Electric has been around since 2007 and specializes in the sales and service of GEM Electric Cars. In 2011, they received the Polaris North Amer¬ ican dealer of the year award for their sales volume and service excellence. This service plus the care and commitment of the Victory of Miami team means you will be in great hands with this purchase. Victory of Miami is an authorized GEM dealer.

It seemed almost goofy, but upon investigation Sniff Pet Candles has convincing research about how our furry loved ones interrupt the world and how they can benefit from their sense of smell. Dogs rely on their sense of smell much the way humans rely on eyesight. To gain some perspective, consider this: Humans have approximately 5 million scent- detecting receptors while dogs can have over 50 times that, based on their breed. For example, dachshunds stand strong at 125 million, beagles sniff at 225 million, and topping the chart at 300 million is the bloodhound breed. This line of candles has the perfect blend of essential oils to offer emotional bal- ance and calming energy for your pooch. The "Splendor in the Grass" scent was designed to resemble a breath of fresh air for those city dogs who can't always get out for a stroll. With lavender as its base, which is known to reduce stress, it is combined with amber and earthly notes of vetiver, and anchored with sandal- wood. The result is a relaxed dog who is ready to drift off to dreamland. The best part is that these candles smell just as delicious to pet owners, so you can enjoy the scent along with your pup. $38 for the 11-ounce candle. Available at sniffpetcandles.com A portion of the proceeds are donated to animal rescue organizations across the U.S., including the Pets Trust in Miami and Miami Pets Alive. 96 J A N U A R Y / F E B R U A R Y 2013 S O U T H F L O R I D A L U X U R Y G U I D E .
