Happy Friday! It’s been a fun week, hasn’t it? Never have I ever had a party to celebrate Her Philly’s Birthday, but this year my BF & BFFs totally broke that tradition. I am a lucky lady. Anyway, today is the last day of Her Philly’s 3rd birthday celebrations, so I made sure it was a good one.
Prizes on prizes on prizes! I hope you’re all enjoying the birthday celebrations; I know I’m loving seeing those entries tick up and up! Today I have another amazing giveaway for you, and, yes, it may look familiar. You all loved this prize so much last year, I’ve brought it back for another year.
One prize down, three to go! I promised you that these prizes would be excellent ways to treat yourself this holiday season, and today’s prize does just that. It comes from one of my favorite gems in the city, and it’s a gift you’ll be able to savor for months & months to come!
This year’s Her Philly Birthday Giveaway week is here! My first prize is a little experience that will take you out to the Philly burbs, but I promise, it’s so worth it.
We are so lucky to live in such a great city filled with fabulous restaurants, talented chefs, and amazing food. But when it seems like you’ll never run out of places to eat, how can you prioritize where to stop first? Well (if the menu doesn’t get you first) when a restaurant starts to win awards (and lots of them), you might be on the right track.
There was once a time in my life (or many, many times) when I despised working out. Doing things I was not good at (ie: running) or that became boring (basically running again) made exercising way less than enjoyable to me. After many weeks of not feeling as fabulous/healthy as I thought I could, I needed to find something new . . . something that was fun, held me accountable, and was actually attainable with my busy schedule.
I started getting highlights in my hair when I was in middle school. I kept getting highlights until I was so blonde by the end of college, that it was out of control. After graduating, I decided to try and get these locks back to my natural color, only to eventually become bored again. My quest to spice up my hair led me to going ginger (but more maroon/burgundy/auburn . . . I just like saying ginger), and one place has been my go-to Philly salon of choice in order to correctly apply this strategic color choice. And now, you get to try them too.
Happy Tuesday, ladies! Let’s cut to the chase: you know I love the Eagles. Even though our Birds gave a bit of a disappointing performance against the Seahawks last weekend, we’re still 9-4 (and things are gonna be OK). If you believe, like I do, that one of the best ways to show support for our team is in green and white gear (with clever slogans, of course), today’s giveaway is for you.
IT’S. GIVEAWAY. TIME. You guys don’t even know – I love running these giveaways for you so much, I have been looking forward to this post for months. In case you’re new (welcome!), I’ve started a little tradition here on the blog: a week of giveaways featuring some of my favorite Philly things in honor of this little blog’s birthday. So, giveaway week is back, and you are going to loooove these prizes.
All giveaways will be run for one week each on a Rafflecopter widget. If you have any questions about how to enter, please get in touch. A quick note about entries: You can enter as many giveaways and with as many ways as you’d like. If you took my reader survey last week, you’ll still need to enter using the widget below (since I don’t know if you would love the prize on Day 4 and hate the prize on Day 2 – I want to make sure you get entered for the prize you’re interested in!). I’ll be revealing a new prize every day, now through Friday . . . so, on to the first one!
Doing fun things with your Philly girlfriends is pretty much the reason we’re all here, right? The Philadelphia Flower Show is legendary in this city (it was first held in 1829!), but in all my years around the Philadelphia area, I have yet to attend. As I get older, subsequently becoming more & more interested in adult things like the arts, culture, and what flowers are what, I knew attending this year’s event was on my list. (But really . . . watching all of the amazing/hysterical auditions for the Green Room host didn’t hurt either.)
In my research, there are two ways you can do the Flower Show – the general admission way, and the VIP “Girls Night Out” way. Girls Night Out is a special premiere ticket event taking place on (Thirsty) Thursday, March 6th. There will be shopping, massages, facials, blowouts, wine, and a photo booth. And, most importantly, plenty of Instagram-able moments.
You can buy your tickets for the Philadelphia Flower Show in advance online. I know, $50 is a hefty sum. But if you’re shelling out $32 for a general admission ticket, you might as well spring for the extra cost and secure yourself some beverages, beauty treatments, and giveaways, don’t you think?
Hope to see you all next week! xx
