Introducing Dari's Picks


I'm alway looking for cool pieces to add to my son's wardrobe, even though I feel like boys have very limited options compared to girls. (If you have a son, I'm sure you can agree.) However, if you look hard enough, I'm sure you can find some things to help break out their personal style and interest. That is why I would like to introduce to you, Dari's Picks, a curated collection of post with things my son, Darius thinks are cool, interesting, fun, etc. We won't just be covering fashion, but also toys, activities and a few more of his favorite things. If you have a darling little girl, don't worry, I won't be completely bias. I just hope you all enjoy this as much as I'm looking forward to it! I've been wanting to do something like this for a while now and I'm hoping it will be a source of information and inspiration to other moms out there. If you have anything in particular you would like to see featured tweet me @fashionofphilly or leave a comment below!

The Philadelphia Flower Show 2016



It has been a tradition in my family for as long as I can remember to visit The Philadelphia Flower Show! This year was no different, so I got together with my sister, mom and my son to check out this year's exhibit. The theme: Explore America: 100 Years of the National Park Service. The installations had reflected different National Parks from around the USA and a few were inspired from places around the globe. Usually the weather is still pretty chilly when The Flower Show comes around, but on the day we went, the city hit record highs! Still, it's always nice to get a preview of beautiful spring flowers. Here are just a few of the exhibits that caught my eye! Warning: Get ready for a picture overload!

Neutrogena Naturals Skincare Review

This post was sponsored by Neutrogena as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions (FTC) guidelines concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
Spring is here, well not officially, but the weather is finally starting to break and the sun is beginning to shine even brighter. With the change in weather sometimes come a change in our skincare. The ugly winter can take a toll on our face sometimes making it dry and dull. Neutrogena Naturals has the perfect remedy for your skin. Neutrogena Naturals is an amazing line of skincare products derived from natural ingredients. They're pure, safe, and effective meaning that they're made with no harsh chemicals, dyes, parabens, petrolatum, or phthalates. I'm a huge fan of products that incorporate natural ingredients especially when it comes to things used on my skin so adding Neutrogena Naturals to my skincare routine was easy to do.

Beauty Reviews: The Amuse Bouche Collection from Bite Beauty


If you follow @FashionofPhilly on Instagram, you may have seen me posting about the new Amuse Bouche collection from Bite! These colors are beautiful for spring and are super hydrating with long-lasting color pay off. As an Influenster member, I get to try out some amazing beauty products and this one, by far, is one of my favorites. The colors I received are: (from left to right) Gazpacho, Beetroot, and Pepper. Every shade packs intense color and has a yummy citrus scent that I'm sure you'll love. The color stays on all thru the day and night, so you can enjoy your date night and not constantly have to worry about touching up your lipstick. Check them out below and let me know which one is your favorite!

Weekend Adventures: The Pop Shop - Collingswood, NJ


To continue my quest to dine at places featured on the Food Network, we made a trip to The Pop Shop in Collingswood, NJ. It was featured on Throwdown with Bobby Flay and is famous for their grilled cheese sandwiches. They also have an amazing milkshake and malt selection for anyone with a sweet tooth. For my breakfast lovers, stop by anytime of the day and enjoy a monster sized breakfast menu.
