My day in Philly Wonderland

Traveling to new sites and seeing new places is one of my passions in life. Whether it’s a new city/country/state/ anything!! A couple of weeks ago I went on a road trip with close friends of mine to Philly- first time ever!! YES! I was so excited, road trips are the best especially with good people and great music 🙂 Unfortunately, we did not have much time to explore (def. going back soon!!) but we did go to the Philadelphia Magic Gardens and I fell in love! Art is a huge passion of mine and this place was just amazing!! It was right on South Street, which is the tourist-y area of Philly but still a lot of fun. If you ever are in this area- go visit!

“Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) is a mosaicked visionary art environment, gallery, and community arts center that preserves, interprets, and provides access to Isaiah Zagar’s unique mosaic art environment and his public murals. The Magic Gardens site, Zagar’s largest artwork, includes a fully tiled indoor space and a massive outdoor mosaic sculpture garden that spans half a block on Philadelphia’s famous South Street. Inside, visitors can view folk art statues, bicycle wheels, colorful glass bottles, Zagar’s hand-made tiles, and thousands of glittering mirrors. The installation pays tribute to Zagar’s artistic influences, along with community and personal experiences.”

Army in Style

This season the military look is everywhere! From the combat boots, to the vintage flair jackets, camo pants, and even some army inspired accessories are coming from runways to stores. Combat boots have always been a staple  in my closet but this season I’m all about the jackets!! For men/women this style is just perfect. Over a chunky sweater, layer it with scarves, big earrings and jeans tucked in your boots- perfect Saturday brunch outfit if ya ask me.

*My hint– working in NYC I’ve found all the little gems and secrets and I’m sharing this one with my naturalista’s .. Google “ARMY STORES” around your hood.. These spots are wayyyy cheaper than those jackets you will find at high end stores. More authentic and vintage too 😉

Take a look at some of my inspiration for this post!

Hello October

Welcome October. Welcome the season change and the bright, fall colors. The new, sleek looks from the hair color change to the booties on our feet. Inspiration is everywhere around us in this month, leading us to everything that fall has to offer. This season I want to do more. New York City is absolutely beautiful with the leaves changing. On my list will be apple/pumpkin picking, Central Park picnics, boating, Brooklyn adventures, lots and lots of fall shopping, and trying anything pumpkin spiced! I’m embracing this new season with a new mindset and am constantly evolving. It’s newness that restores our soul and lifts us up. No matter what has brought you down, this season is here to bring us back up. Keep that in mind and our wings will soar. Happy October and welcome newness, Naturalista’s!
