Welcome back to Philly Finds. I’m sorry it’s been almost a month since we’ve last met. <3
I began this post when I was down the shore for a week and am just completing it now, along with another post for the newsletter. This blog post began with:
“I come to you from the Jersey Shore, content after a day at the beach, followed by a glorious post-beach shower. There really is no better feeling, is there? I’m spending the week down the shore and am dedicating my time to equal parts relaxing and restoring, as well as for some final summer night outs.”
I wanted to keep that in because I still feel like I’m in that mindset, and am not quite ready to let it go yet.
Before the finds, let’s dig into some articles and housekeeping.
- Positive Publicity made it onto the Huffington Post! I was able to chat about dos and don’ts of visiting Philly, and was honored to participate in this article.
- Philly Mag dropped an article titled The Wild, Wild West of Philly’s Food Influencer Scene. It explores the ins-and-outs of how influencer partnerships come to be with restaurants, and for those who are both influencers or work in PR (or are just generally curious), it’s a good read.
WXPN’s XPoNential Music Festival Ticket Giveaway
I’m holding a giveaway over on Instagram for a pair of tickets to the XPoNential Music Festival, featuring artists such as The War on Drugs, Nathaniel Rateliff, Patti Smith, The Revivalists and more! The contest closes tomorrow, so still some time left to enter.
I’ve been using clothes subscription service Nuuly for three months now and am loving it. I would say of the 18 outfits I’ve received, there were only two that I didn’t love. The rest have been all winners. You can use my link here for $10 off your first month’s subscription
Now, onto ze finds!
“Hey Camille, do you want to meet some of the Real Housewives?”
This is a text I received from Whitney Ullman of The City Pulse. I couldn’t have typed out “UMMMMM YES” any more quickly. She was interviewing the ladies at their event at Live Casino, and I was lucky enough to join her. Afterwards, we dined at The Prime Rib and enjoyed tuna, crab, oysters and more. I need to write a whole blog post about this night alone.
Franklin and Whitman
I have to say, the Philly skincare scene is absolutely incredible right now. Two of these Philly-based companies happen to both be located in the. Bok Building – Franklin and Whitman and Sabbatical Beauty. A few weeks ago I attended an event at Franklin and Whitman and was able to see their space and test out there products. One of my favorite things about the company is that all of the products are named after Philly neighborhoods – i.e. Fitler Square Face Scrub, Washington Square Botanical Steam, Point Breeze Body Wash. Franklin and Whitman also donates a percentage of all sales to dog rescue organizations, and also every single ingredient they use is cruelty free and plant based.
The products I left with are:
- Hyaluronic Acid Serum
- Vitamin C Eye Serum
- Walnut Hill Face Serum (my favorite)
Ebbitt Room at the Virginia Hotel
While summer may be unofficially over, there is never a bad time to visit Cape May, NJ. The town is charming all year round, and in fact the holidays is one of my favorite times to visit Cape May. Should you find yourself there, make it a point to either dine or grab a drink at the Ebbitt Room at the Virginia Hotel. Their rooms are so warm and inviting, and it’s the perfect place to cozy up with a whiskey drink.
Talk soon! <3
