Philly Fitness: ClassPass Now in Session

Wednesday, December 17, 2014



Excited to start my first class...heading to Lithe Barre in Rittenhouse Square, bright and early! Get your New Years Resolution started early.  Geared towards you spinners, yogis, pilate princesses and kickboxing queens.  ClassPass is now available to the City of Brotherly Love.  For $99/month, you will get unlimited classes to used at studios in the network.  You can take as many classes as you like during your subscription, and can visit the same studio for up to 3 times per cycle.

I'm pretty psyched to try out some classes I've had the nerve to check out! Muay Tai? You only live once right?  Other classes include (and not limited to) various Yoga styles and infusions, Barre, Cycle, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Aloha Dance, Yoga for Kids and Parents, Pilates, Kickboxing, Ariel and Hot Yoga....the list goes on.  You can search by area, studio, schedule or activity.

Philly Jewelry Designer: Lizidalena

Tuesday, December 16, 2014


These designs are by local designer, Liz Higgins.  You can tell Miss Higgins was born and raised on jewelers row, with her Philly inspired designs, coined Lizidalena.  I'm in love with the Lightening Rod Pendant, now on display at the AIGA Philly Pop Up Shop, 72 N. 2nd Street.  You can also pick up her LOVE inspired rings, cufflinks and charms on her Etsy shop here Lizidalena and at Philadelphia Independents. 

Collage Art by Beth Hoeckel

Tuesday, December 9, 2014





I obviously have a thang for collages, I'm addicted to these layered and crafted prints by Baltimore's own Beth Hoeckel.  Seriously, retro cool artwork with 60's & 70's polaroid-style shots.  Now I wanna dig up my parents old school slides for a good ole' nostalgic family bashing & laughing session:)

Wanderlust: English Lakes, Rogue Territory and Lifestyle Photography

Monday, November 17, 2014

I'm having severe Wanderlust.  Check out at these beautiful shots taken by John Parminter  of England's Lake District & the Scottish Highlands.  I'm a sucker for lifestyle/fashion photography and Noah Sahady hit the nail on the head with his "Explore" book.  I came across his site via Rogue Territory, a men's brand focused on handcrafted denim made here in the US.  There pant and jacket collection for F/W 2014 is pure quality and they did an amazing layout for Collective Quarterly  Magazine.  RGT is sold locally in Totem on 535 South Street.  They are a pretty badass menswear store and stock brands such as Filson, Steven Allen, Danner Boots, and Raleigh Denim. Now, I'm itching to grab my backpack, throw on my hiking boots and gear-up for a new adventure...

Northeast Outlets: Philadelphia Mills


I haven't been to Philadelphia Mills in a few years, and to be perfectly honest...I am not a big "mall shopper".   The previously named Franklin Mills, has been revamped and rebranded as the Philadelphia Mills by Simon Malls.  From the newly opened outlet shops to the friendly sales associates, it's unfortunate that I don't live in the Northeast to shop here more often.  I did a little shopping in the Express outlet, very excited to find the perfect pair of Boyfriend jeans for only $40!  For all you fashionistas, the BCBG Max Azria dress selection--->amazing.  Other great shops include Neiman Marcus Last Call, Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off 5th, H&M, Ann Taylor LOFT and Banana Republic.
Complete store list here.
