I have really been loving this summer. The sunshine makes me so happy. I don’t think I have done this season’s update post (see last summer), where I just get to talk about all of the fun and random things going on in my life . . . so here we are.
The Single Life
We all know I’m single (because it seems like I announce it every chance I get), but I don’t let that stop me from attending the things I want in the city. Last week, I posted a guest blog for Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia all about attending Diner en Blanc as a single woman. Check it.
As you may have seen on Twitter & Instagram, I just got back from Orlando. I was there for a social media conference (which I will be posting about!), and added on a few extra days of vacation with my family. We went to Disney World (obviously) and had some amazing dinners while we were there. Each of my family members asked if I’d be blogging about my trip, so . . . hi guys! I mean obviously I would be blogging and posting pictures from my trip. What’s the point in having social media platforms like Instagram if I can’t do this? I love nothing more than being able to share my experiences with people from all over the world, as after all, we are connected by Instagram. Although on saying that, I haven’t got as many users as I would like to view my posts. Funnily enough, my friend told me that you can look into getting free instagram followers from sites such as Socialfollow just before I left for my trip. But I didn’t get around into looking at it. I think I may definitely need to do this before deciding to post any more of my pictures. In the meantime though, let me share some of the highlights from my trip.
I took a few weeks off from Flywheel when I started my new job, but I am back and loving life. I just took my first Fly60 class with Nicole and I am very proud of myself. I made it through the class and scored over 300 points – holla! Thank you, Flywheel, for helping me enjoy working out. If any of you ever want to give Flywheel a try, your first class is free, and I’d love to go with you!
Geeks for the Win
Because I totally needed a new show to keep me occupied, and because I trust all things HBO, I started (and finished) Silicon Valley. It was slightly crude, but most of the jokes did not bother me that much. The episodes are quick, so if you’re interested in the tech world, check it out.
My Social Calendar
This month has been a fun one for events! I started off at The Not Wedding, which, despite being the only person there not planning a wedding, was still really cool to attend. It was held at Power Plant Productions (230 North 2nd Street) – I’m obsessed. Next was the Yelp 10 Year Anniversary Party, held at the Shops at Liberty Place (1625 Chestnut Street). There was a ton of great food and drinks there, but my favorites were definitely the cupcakes from Twelve Baskets. Later that week, I attended my first concert at Festival Pier for The Fray and Neon Trees. I loved the venue – I’ll definitely be back for more shows!
On one final note, thank you for continuing to read and spread the word about my blog. I have met so many of you lately and it is seriously still unreal to me that people like you enjoy reading Her Philly. I love ya all. Have a wonderful rest of your week! xx
