So I made a new friend here in Philadelphia, and he likes to go by @EricSmithRocks! Social Media Manager for a small publishing company in Old City called Quirk Books and co-founder of the oh-so-awesome Geekadelphia, Eric is a fellow creative and Philly go-getter! We met for the first time to have a casual happy hour at King’s Oak (their sweet potato fries are to die for!!), followed by some browsing at vintage store Jinx, and ending with a mini-photoshoot in the Piazza. Overall, it’s been great connecting with Eric and I hope to learn A LOT from his Jedi ways.
I had some free time today and decided to take a few photos around one of my favorite Philly neighborhoods, Northern Liberties! Enjoy the photos below, but more importantly, enjoy the beautiful spring weather!
Just got word that Chestnut Street’s West Elm will be hosting a pop-up Etsy event next Saturday! Local Philadelphia Etsy sellers were chosen by founder of Design Milk Jamie Derringer to showcase their goodies to the public! The event will be this Saturday, March 9 from 1pm – 6pm at the 13th and Chestnut location, and vendors Federal Donuts and La Colombe Coffee will be feeding the crowds. Check out the participating Etsy-sellers below to take a sneak peak at which items will be up for sale. Find any favorites? Let me know in the comments below!

I randomly found a blog this summer called “Philly Love Notes” and saw that the blogger accepted posts on local Philadelphians and their favorite spots around the city. Being a soccer lover, I had to write about the beautiful turfs at UPenn! My post just went live, so check it out and give Emma (the cool Philly Love Notes blogger) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
