Happy Weekend!



This weekend I am shipping up to Boston with Scott to see my best friend, Kristin and get reacquainted with a city I love! I went to Boston back in 2008 and I absolutely adored the city. I loved walking around the big wide sidewalks, seeing the tall trees against huge brownstones, being so close to the water and of course the shopping. (Silly me didn’t think to bring a jacket at the end of September soooo thank you H&M for saving me).

Tonight we’re heading to the Cambridge neighborhood for some drinks after a taco and jalapeno sangria night. (YUM) Which will be very deserving for Scott because this is another road trip where he’s the only driver. (48 total hours of driving and counting this year…. best bf ever. One day I’ll learn how to drive stick shift!)

Happy Weekend!

500 daysHappy Weekend everyone! Nearly the end of July and Philadelphia has a ton of fun things to do all over the city. I am itching to get over to Spruce Street Harbor Park and the new beer garden at Independence Mall. I guess the excitement of a summer pop-up is that eventually its going to go away until the following year, so I need to get my act together and venture around town. If you have gone to either of these two locations, got any tips for me? I would love to get the inside scoop ;)

Also, just passed (over) 500 days with Scott! Of course, my brain went immediately to 500 Days of Summer and looking back at it,I can’t believe the movie came out five years ago.

I was studying abroad when the movie came out in Europe and I was so eager to see it back in the states. {The perfect indie movie gone mainstream.} I am also, a huge sucker for JGL (shocking, who isn’t these days) however, I really loved and identified with the main character Tom. Maybe it was because he was from Margate, NJ and I live outside of the shore town. Who knows…. Now looking back on it, I don’t feel that way anymore.

500 days together and many more!

  • You’re not going to recognize the new Coach ads.
  • Sad times for SNL cast members.
  • Tory Burch for Fitbit has arrived.
  • Calling all Orange is the New Black fans, see what the real Larry Smith had to say.

Here is the pin of the week! Connect with me on Pinterest and see all of my favorite pins.

Keep on HUMming


In May I was reading one of my favorite beauty blogs – Byride when I stumbled across the article “Why Sephora is Changing the Beauty Vitamin Game”. Intrigued, I decided to take a look at the article which talked about HUM Nutrition.

The way I got introduced to HUM personally was tweeting out the Byrdie article and saying “I wonder if the Red Carpet vitamins really work”. I got an email in my inbox shortly after from the (awesome) HUM PR team and a few weeks later I received my first pack of HUM Red Carpet. I have never tried hair, skin and nail vitamins before, I’m more of a multi-Vitamin & fish oil type of gal. So I was really curious to see how taking an additional targeted supplement would look like.

After the suggested 4-6 week time period, I was able to notice a difference in my skin and hair. My skin seemed to have a soft dewy glow (no makeup here) and I had chopped off 4” of my hair at the end of March so I knew the reason for my rapid hair growth had to be from HUM. Personally I like to keep my nails short and square so I didn’t see a major difference in length… yet. I just need to be adventurous and actually let me nails grow out.

So there you have it folks – HUM Nutrition’s Red Carpet gets an A in my book for beauty supplements. Curious to HUM along with me? Check out their website and take their short quiz on which bottle of HUM is right for you.

Happy Weekend!

5411fdd90981107aeb56cc87a9edca21Happy Weekend everyone! I’m going to assume that everyone has been looking forward to this since its the first full week back from the holidays. This weekend, hopefully Scott and I can pick back up on our new Sunday tradition bike ride so I can learn how to shift and pick up speed on our longer rides. Of course its the World Cup final {tear drop} and I hoping for an Argentina win!

What are you up to this weekend?

Rock Independence Day with Wear Liberty

Since its the week leading up to Independence Day in Philadelphia, I wanted to spotlight a local designer, Matt Eyer from the Wear Liberty. I always love a great graphic t-shirt so I reached to Matt to learn more about his brand and inspiration.

Matt told me that he has always been into graphic t-shirts, especially limited edition collections. He wanted to share his love for Philadelphia’s art and culture scene through graphic art and apparel. 2012 was the year that Wear Liberty really took off after participating at the annual Art Star Craft Bazaar for the first time.  From there Wear Liberty was sold at the 2nd Street Festival and the Punk Rock Flea Market. Now in the brand’s third year, Wear Liberty continues to participate and be sold at local Philadelphia events and has been written about on Philly.com and uwishunu.com.

To follow summer’s most sacred fashion rule “Sun’s out, guns out” I am really digging the tank tops and sunglasses from Wear Liberty. To learn more or stimulate the economy by buying a tank top head to wearliberty.net!

[See Jade Dine] New Menu at Hard Rock Cafe

What I love about Philadelphia is the food, obviously. There are so many independent restaurants, growing empires (STARR, Garces, 13th Street Philly, Vetri…) and of course the traditional national chains. This might be from growing up in Atlantic City and having die hard music loving parents, there was always something exciting about getting to go the Hard Rock Cafe on the boardwalk. I loved looking at the endless amount of musician photographs, apparel and instruments on the walls. Last week I was invited to the media preview of the brand new menu at Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia. It took 14 months for the new menu’s roll out, but every single item on the menu was revamped. Impressive!

First thing to come out was the brand new Rockin Wings. These delicious wings are a perfect matrimony between a dry rub and spicy buffalo sauce. I promise they are finger lickin good, my entire table had to get seconds.

For all of my veggie friends out there, never fear! Hard Rock Cafe just turned up the heat on the Fresh Vegetable Sandwich. They had me at balsamic glaze over portobello mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash, roasted red peppers and grilled asparagus.HRC Grilled Vegetable Sandwich


The brand new Fiesta Burger is competed in the annual Burger Brawl this year. I mean, let’s be real, anything with guacamole as a topping has to be a winner correct? The added pico de gallo on top added a fresh taste to this savory burger. Fries come on the side too FTW.HRC Fiesta Burger


Ah, finally the alcoholic milkshake! Chocolate, bacon, and Guinness all combined into one delicious adult beverage. Ironically my cousin has already tried this beverage treat at the HRC in Pittsburgh. Two thumbs up from the both of us.HRC Twisted Shout ShakeThere you have it folks! A few of my favorites from the brand new menu at Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia.

Happy Weekend!

LBP Sales GraphicIts the best weekend in June because its the start of the Wawa Welcome America Festival! If you didn’t already know, the 4th of July is kind of a big deal in Philly (birth place of the US of A). We love celebrating it so much that the Welcome America festival is seven days long and filled with FREE events to attend. Obviously, I would love for everyone to come tomorrow and attend the inaugural Liberty Block Party at {you guessed it} The Shops at Liberty Place! I promise great food, sweet shopping and lots of entertainment.
