moving on

i wanted to share some exciting news which will probably explain my blog absence. we are moving to l.a.! a couple months ago i applied for a position as a wardrobe stylist with an l.a. staple called wasteland. we met, fell in love and the rest in history! ryan and i will be starting our drive across country one week from today. i have always loved l.a. since my first visit and look forward to so many things once we get settled. we were lucky enough to find a duplex in echo park with sweet little details and even a lemon tree in the yard.

on a side note, i know this blog started when i opened my little philadelphia vintage shop and then you watched my amazing endeavors with free people. all have been an amazing journey in my life that i have learned so much and had the pleasure to experience. i feel really lucky to have had both. at this point i'm not sure i'd like to continue with this blog, but am grateful to anyone who reads it or has ever taken the time to sit down and browse. in the future i may start a whole new blog about my new journeys, but time will tell. for now i am leaving you with the craigslist photos of our new california hacienda and a message we seem to forget... you are never too old to follow your dreams!

stay in touch:)
with love,

tasty discoveries

eating vegan in philadelphia has gotten a lot easier lately. with pure fare and vedge restaurants just recently opening i have been really loving all the tasty options. this past week i had the amazing experience of trying the veggie burger at hip city vedge!! it was amazing!! i went with some friends during my lunch break, we grabbed our burgers and headed over to rittenhouse square for lunch in the park. i can't wait to get another and even try their crispy chicken sandwich:) 

to my surprise i got this vegan treat at the famous franklin fountain ice cream parlor the other day. i stopped in with a friend and was surprised when i saw 3 dairy free ice creams on the menu. after talking to the nice people that worked there i found out they had lots vegan candies and toppings as well. I ended up getting the mint chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate syrup! such a great surprise!

i just wanted to share, since vegan foods in philadelphia had been urban legends in the past.
