It’s been a few weeks since a new Philly Finds, so this week’s edition is stacked. I recommend grabbing yourself your beverage of choice and a snack before diving in.
And before we get into the Philly Finds, I hope you don’t mind if I promo a few things:
- Thanks to everyone who recently signed up for my weekly pop culture newsletter! I hope you’ll also sign up if you haven’t already.
- An even BIGGER thank you to those who have purchased the Philly Italian slang poster! It has been really fun to see it being hung in homes. There is still time to place your order for the holidays! The posters come in either green or white and are 11×17.
- I recently began working with undergarments brand Parade, and will begin sharing more over on Instagram. If you’re looking for a holiday gift or for a lil something cute for yourself, you can use my link and code MILLIEPHANATIC for 20% off your first order.
Now onto the finds!
At 1735 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 lies a wellness paradise. It was my first time at a Heyday location, and I would describe it as a “facial factory” (I mean that in the best way possible). Instead of like a traditional spa, the experience is more like an informative consultation about your skin care routine, all while receiving a luxurious facial. If you can request her, Ashley M. was fantastic. I left feeling rejuvenated and with a brand new cleanser.
Perhaps I am the last person in Philly to go to 1 Tippling Place, the sexy cocktail bar on 20th and Chestnut. I imbibed with an Old Fashioned and one of the best dirty martinis I’ve ever had, chilled to perfection. It was cozy and intimate, the perfect place to go to on a chilly evening when you need to get out of the house.
FabScrap Philly Opening
The reigning sovereign of Philadelphia HerPhilly aka Emily invited me to be her date to the FabScrap Philly opening at the Bok Building. FabScrap is a Brooklyn-based non-profit which is a one-stop textile reuse and recycling resource (learn more from their Inquirer profile). The evening was spent admiring fashions made by Drexel students out of recycled materials, exploring their new space and catching up with Emily which is always the best. Congratulations FabScrap!
I was hoping to do a dedicated post to a Middle Child Clubhouse review, but life comes at ya fast! I did at least want to share more of what we got for dinner though:
And finally, behold this immaculate hoagie tray from Pagano’s which graced the Eagles tailgate I was at:
Wishing you all a very relaxing Thanksgiving break! <3
