Fashion of Philly: Weekend Edition

Super Bowl 50 Style

Shop the Look

It's the weekend and not just any weekend, but SUPERBOWL Weekend! Even though the Eagles aren't playing, it's still exciting to watch the game, the halftime performance and of course, the commercials. Surprisingly, I've been noticing a lot of them already posted on twitter and other social media sites, which kinda spoils it. I'd rather watch them during the game since it's more exciting that way. Do you plan on watching the game?

On the other hand, if you could care less about watching the big game, here's a few other things that might peak your interest!

A Visit to Indulgence Cupcakery

The weather this was weekend was much better then last weekend's blizzard, so I was ready to get out and enjoy it. One thing I want to accomplish this year is exploring more of the local scene. Find amazing restaurants, plan exciting day trips and enjoy what's in my backyard. While I was snowed in last week, I searched for nearby places featured on the channel. South Jersey doesn't have as much as Philadelphia, of course, but I did find a few hidden gems. My first stop, Indulgence Cupcakery in Haddonfield, NJ.

Skincare from Farmhouse Fresh

I love a good facial mask and right now I'm loving my Farmhouse Fresh Pudding A Peel Tapioca + Rice Active Fruit Glycol Mask! It sounds like a mouth full to say, but all you need to know is that it does amazing things to your face. As you already know, I'm all about using skincare with natural ingredients and this mask is 97% natural. This Power Pudding contains a fine mixture of honey, coconut milk, green tea, and honeysuckle extracts and smells good enough to eat! Crazy thing is I don't even like tapioca or rice pudding, but I love this mask. It gets rid of dead skin cells that may start piling up during the winter time, while moisturizing and soothing your skin after battling the harsh winter air.
