TINSEL

TINSEL

Looking to get in the holiday spirit? Visit Tinsel! Tinsel is a pop-up holiday bar, featuring fun and festive decorations and drinks. This bar is Christmas themed, filled with ornaments, a ceiling lined with presents, and Santa’s throne.

All of their drinks are holiday themed, which is something I loved seeing! I tried the Holiday Sangria, which had white wine, cranberries, and orange. For more information on their drink menu and prices, check out this Philly Voice article.

And since I’m #extra, I had to dress up for the occasion with an ugly Christmas sweater! I couldn’t find an exact link to the one I was wearing, but I’ve linked a couple similar ones from Amazon Prime: here, here, and here.

Happy Holidays!

RACE STREET PIER

RACE STREET PIER

When I recently visited Race Street Pier, I just wanted to stand still for 10 minutes and take in the sight. It’s amazing that you can see this beautiful view, while still being in the heart of Philadelphia. Overlooking the DE River Waterfront, this pier is composed of several benches and small lawn spaces that allow for a perfect picnic- or even just a place to decompress from your hectic life.

Race Street Pier is also right next to Morgan’s pier, so you can easily grab food and drinks depending on when you visit. If you want more of a relaxing experience, you can participate in the free yoga sessions on Race Street Pier presented by Aetna. This is something that I just learned about, but it seems pretty awesome! For more information, click here.

I’ve driven back and forth on the Ben Franklin Bridge dozens of times, since my hometown in located in New Jersey. However, I definitely have a greater appreciation for this landmark since I’ve visited Race Street Pier. If you’re looking for a cool place to visit while in Philly, definitely move this to the top of your list!

SECRET SPOTS SURROUNDING THE ART MUSEUM

SECRET SPOTS SURROUNDING THE ART MUSEUM

The Philadelphia Art Museum is an iconic spot in the city. This museum is filled with amazing art, but it’s also surrounded by the world-famous Rocky Steps, different statues, and beautiful architecture. Overall, it’s an ideal place to visit whether you live in Philly or are traveling near the area. I can’t wait for the day I snag some photos inside of the Art Museum, but for today’s blog post I’m revealing the best photo spots located outside of the Art Museum.

1. Steps at the Back of the Museum

Philly’s Art Museum is well-known for the Rocky Steps, but I’ve found this area to be super crowded every time I’ve visited. If you want to snag a picture that incorporates the vibe of the Art Museum steps, without all of the tourist traffic, then stop by the set of steps located at the back of the museum!

2. Gazebo Overlooking Boathouse Row

I’ve seen a lot of people take pictures here, but can you blame them? This spot has such a beautiful view and is worth stopping to see.

3. Pathways Near the Schuylkill

For those of you who didn’t know, there are a ton of random pathways and trails surrounding the Art Museum. Let yourself wander and you’ll find some amazing sights to see. That’s what we did, and I’m in love with all of the photos we captured!

BEST MURALS IN FISHTOWN, PHILADELPHIA

BEST MURALS IN FISHTOWN, PHILADELPHIA

I LOVE mural art and I LOVE that Philly is flooded with it! Lately, I’ve been exploring Fishtown and I was so excited to discover that a lot of artists have left their mark in this part of Philadelphia. Mural art gives the city so much character, and it definitely makes walks around the city a little more interesting!

Looking to admire some cool murals, or snag some content for your Insta? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I began my journey to discover the best murals near Little Baby’s Ice Cream on 23rd and Frankford Ave. As I made my way towards 15th St and Frankford Ave, I kept my eyes peeled and found even more mural art. If you end up coming across any of these awesome paintings, I’d love for you to tag me on Instagram. Follow me here, if you don’t already!

IMG_0066Think bright. Think happy. Think cheerful. Think YELLOW! Yellow is such a fun and unique color that screams Summer and warmth. I know I’m not the only one who has seen yellow on display in almost every store I’ve walked into. If you’re afraid you can’t rock this vibrant color, don’t be! Just find the shade of yellow that looks the most flattering on your skin tone.
