Last week, I celebrated my 31st birthday! As you may imagine, for a planner like me, I thought trying to avoid all activities & celebrate my DOB in isolation would be, well, quite sad. But I had the best day!Continue Reading…
It’s the Tuesday after Labor Day (a hard day, some may say) and I’m in a bathing suit on PhillyMag.com.
Be Well Philly asked to share my story in their new Transformation series. The series used to document the stories of people’s weight loss journeys, but they’re transitioning it to body love & acceptance, something I’m obviously all about.
I did the interview last week over the phone, and was thrilled to be able to (hopefully!) influence the next generation of Philly body positive “influencers.”Continue Reading…
Long time, no chat, my friends! I’ve been having a tough time getting my thoughts down into the blog lately, but tonight I had a surge of #feelings, so I knew it was time to check back in. I wanted to share all the things that have me feeling happy and fortunate and overall just plain good lately. And trust me, there are a LOT of updates, so you’re gonna want to keep reading. 😉 Enjoy! xx
In the land of grammin, it’s so easy to have your feed overrun by posts you passively scroll by on the search for something you connect with. I follow QUITE a few of Philly peeps over on my Instagram, but I always look forward to posts from some specific accounts. My favorite Instagrammers wisely use bio.fm to make sure transitioning between their different social media profiles is very seamless. Today, I wanted to share with you 5 of my faaavorite Philly Instagram accounts (all run by amazing women, of course!) that always get me to double tap. They all have so many followers, which is what everyone wants! You guys should consider using instagram tags in your posts in order to get more likes and followers, maybe one day you’ll be on my top 5 favorite accounts!
Did I miss one of your favs? Let me know in the comments below which grammers you love! xx
Happy New Year! I hope you all had the perfect Eve, followed by the best Day you could have had in the 15 degree weather Philadelphia provided us with. My plans of an Eagles tailgate and spending the entire day at the Mummers Parade were quickly shattered, but I still was v lucky to spend my days surrounded by my best buddies and so many carbohydrates.
As we embrace 2018 and I continue into my 6th year blogging about my little Philadelphia life, I thought I’d share five posts that I, truthfully, am really proud of. There are posts that just poured out onto the page, and others I spent a whole lot of time on. Posts that have sentiments that mean a lot to me, and others that are about pizza. Whether you’re new to Her Philly or have been reading all along, check out why these five posts mean so much to me, and let me know which speaks to you the most.
December is a big month for this blog. Every December, I celebrate a Her Philly birthday, but this year, it’s a big one: Five. Years. Five years of sharing my love for this city, and getting so much of it back from all of you, who love it just as much. Five years of adventures and experiences and friendships formed and dates documented. In all the ways I can’t believe it’s been five years, at the same time, it feels like it’s always been a part of me.
Happy 2017, my Philly ladies! This month is speeding on by, and thankfully, this winter seems to be going a little better for me than I was anticipating. Instead of letting the winter blues get me down again this year, I decided it was time to make some #upgrades, ones that directly and totally benefitted one person alone: me! With a little help from my friend Vitamin D (in the form of baby yellow pills), and a few changes, I’m excited to share what I’m working on this month and beyond . . .
So I’m a little late, but I couldn’t let the month go by without mention. So here she is, the 4th DOB (month) of my little Her Philly beeb.
Much like most of the world, 2016 was not a 12 month period I’d put on the “best years of my life” list. But I am growing as a human, and with that, watching my interests and habits change (which I suppose is normal as a woman gets closer and closer to 30 than she is to 20), and I’m, so far, okay with that.
Happy weekend, ladies! I hope you’ve been enjoying a little more frequency in my posting since I’ve been back. I’m trying really hard to stick with it, and that’s why I knew, despite the fact that this week has been non-freakin-stop for me, I had to get this post out with all of the exciting things that have hit my inbox (and my life). So grab a LaCroix on this chilly (#yesssss) Saturday afternoon, buckle up, and let’s get into it!
