Best Breweries in Philly

After living in Charlotte and Denver, both craft brewery hubs, I came back to Philly in high hopes for that cool, brewery vibe. I mean can you think of a better way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon other than stopping by a brewery for some craft beers and good company?!

Favorite BYOBs in Philly

If you’re from Philly, you might be aware of the fact that many restaurants in the city consider themselves BYOB— meaning they don’t serve alcohol, so they encourage that you bring your own bottle of wine or beer. At first, I thought the concept was a little weird, but quickly got onboard because it is such an affordable way to dine out! If you can save on the drinks, then more money to spend on the meal, right?! At least that’s what the restaurant is banking on. Here I’m going to share some of my favorite BYOBs in Philadelphia by cuisine.

50 States Bucket List

I’ve done a ton of traveling over the past few years. I love visiting different cities, and finding out what makes them similar and what makes them unique.  There’s something really exciting and thrilling about exploring a new city from trying out local cuisine, learning about city’s history or famous people who lived there, to hearing peoples’ accents and learning about the way they live.  I decided to set a goal to visit all 50 states by the time I’m 30.

I’ve been wanting to get a weighted blanket for awhile.  I first heard of them about a year ago.

5 Things I Keep In My Purse At All Times

Why is your purse so big? LOL. This is something I get questioned a lot tbh. But actually, I do carry a large tote bag and it is truly a wonder my arm hasn’t fallen off.  I just love to carry a big bag because I love having things with me just in case.  You never know when you might need something, so may as well just have it with you. At least that’s the way I see it.  However, whenever I explain this to people, they’re like, “What could you possibly need?”  So for those that are curious, here are 5 things I keep in my purse at all times.
