New Series // Philly Faves – Pizza Brain

September 17, 2013

Philly Faves - Pizza Brain

Hey everyone, I’m going to start documenting a new series here on the blog called “Philly Faves.” I’m going to differentiate it from any other local highlight I may do on Femme & Fortune by including different photos and just different locations at times. First up is one of my fave pizza places – Pizza Brain, an “American pizza culture museum and pizzeria” located in the heart of Fishtown. I had a lovely date pour une this past Sunday as a means to relax and chill out. Also, Josh was on a gig so my usual partner-in-crime was busy haha. Either way, I had an awesome solo date at Pizza Brain where their “Wendy Wedgeworth” slice was to die for. This diva had sun-dried tomato, goat cheese, fresh arugula and so much more. Le sigh, it was an amazing experience. Enjoy it with me once again through some of my photos below!

Join Me For Banter & Beans!

July 11, 2013

Banter & Bean | Blog Bloom | Workshops for Creatives

Blog Bloom is my creative outlet to help others improve their digital skills. As part of that mission, I’ll be hosting the first “Banter & Beans” event this Saturday, July 13th from 1:00-2:00pm at Magpie! This will be a super casual event where you can come and network with other bloggers/entrepreneurs/artists and discuss certain topics that we’ll choose prior to the event. The first theme will be blogging and we plan on discussing include the following:

1 – How do I create an effective About Me page?
2 – What should be on my widget bar and why?
3 – What are some tips for reaching out to brands or other bloggers
4 – How do I utilize social media with my blog content?

We’ll definitely end up going off tangent and covering a bunch of other topics, but the more ideas and questions, the better our discussion! So swing on by this Saturday to 16th and South Street for some banter and bean with Blog Bloom! I’m excited for this little open forum to happen, and I’ll definitely keep you all posted on how it goes!

Joshua in Old City

June 6, 2013

From the looks of this blog, my boyfriend Joshua should be a blog model. I just get so awkward in front of the camera so I choose to shoot other people. Joshua loves the attention anyway! Below are some shots of us in Old City during a nice spring morning. We should probably start heading to some new parts of town soon…

Why Must You Be So Delicious Han Dynasty?

May 21, 2013

Growing up, my parents had a few very close friends. One of them (the lovely Sree Aunty) came to visit this past weekend and to celebrate, I took everyone out to some delicious Han Dynasty in Old City. Known for the authentic Szechuan cooking and spicy food, my parents and Sree Aunty loved it. They were astounded at how different and yummy the food was compared to “that other Chinese food.” We got a bunch of dished included the popular Dan Dan noodles, Beef and Tripe in Chili Oil, Cumin Lamb, Garlic Sauce Chicken and Dry Pepper Style Fish (aka Flounder).  My mouth is actually salivating right now. Anyway, the food is beyond delicious and I recommend it to everyone willing to try out some spicy and flavorful nomnoms. Check out the pics below (I like Joshua’s really awkward face with my family), and let me know next time you go to Han Dynasty!
