Hey hi hello. Happy Halloween Eve! I’m wide awake (thank you Starbucks trip shot) and so ready to make hump day my bitch lover. I’m two days away from getting the keys to my new house and all that stress I was venting about before has been temporarily replaced with mounds of excitement. So in honor of Philadelphia becoming my family’s home again (13 years later), I’m going to blog about a few of my favorite Philadelphia inspired companies.
- Butter Shades. Although I’ve been stalking this site for a while, I finally ordered my first pair of Butters yesterday. SO hype. I got a pair of these bad boys. Not only are they adorable and super affordable, but they’re born and bred at Drexel. Even as a Hawk, I can’t hate on this.
- Shane Seery Photography. I met Shane a few years ago when he came to work for my event team at PW. When I first met him, I thought he was just this tall dweeb, talking about how much he loved the Flyers, his car, and his camera. But it’s been so awesome to see his all of his work get noticed across the city. His photos are on my walls, my parents’ walls, my boyfriend’s wall, and a few iPhones here and there. I can’t wait to fill my new walls with these pieces.
- Aphillyated. With Philly in its name, Aphillyated has some of the sweetest Philly apparel I’ve ever seen. I wish I could say that I have a favorite, but it’s really too hard for me to pick just one. I rocked my Ben Jammin tank to the Rock n Roll Half Marathon last year and got tons of comments. I mean, how can ya not, right?!
I may or may not have went on a little shopping spree yesterday for me/the manfriend/sister/everyone I know. Go and check out these awesome brands and stock up on some sweet Philly goodies (unless you’re one of the people above…then don’t because I may have surprise happies for you). Christmas presents have officially started to arrive at my house. OH happy day 🙂
