{The Fall Edit #1} The Vegan Leather Jacket

You can’t have fall without a biker jacket and since mine was starting to fall apart and peel, I decided to pick up another one from H&M. It also didn’t hurt to use a 15% off coupon I held on to from recycling my clothes I was getting rid of previously. (FYI: if you didn’t know, H&M has an awesome Garment Collecting Program where customers get rewarded with 15% vouchers when they donate their items to use on a later purchase.) 

However if the ones at H&M don’t peak your interest, some other shops to find some good ones are: Zara, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and more shown above. On the other hand, if you don’t mind wearing real leather, try Wilson’s Leather online or in an outlet mall near you to score a good deal, but if you wanna talk about the leather jacket of my dreams, definitely check out Boda Skins. They carry super stylish leather jackets with customization options that are surely top notch.

Let’s be real for a second, when it comes to eating on the go, there’s not a ton of healthy options to choose from. You might be able to find a salad here or there, but what happens when you want more variety? This is where Bryn + Dane's break the borders. Born in Horsham, PA,  Bryn + Dane’s mission has been to provide healthy fast food to everyone while doing good in the process.

I was invited to taste test some of their top items on the menu and let me tell you, everything was a hit. I would definitely recommend trying the “Bryn Mac”, a plant based wrap (also available in gluten free) that gives you the flavor of Big Mac but in a much healthier version.  If you’re into smoothie bowls, get excited, because there are tons of delicious options to choose from. Not only arethey Instagram-worthy, but you can create your own and pack it with one of four unique bases, proteins, fresh fruits and a drizzle! My favorite happens to be the Superman made with blue spirulina.

I was able to attend to the VIP opening of Bryn + Dane’s newest location in Center City, Philadelphia (Now Open) and the design aesthetic remains the same. Clean, fresh, and innovative. When you arrive, you’ll be able to browse the menu and customize your options on their touch screens. Then take a number and prepare your taste buds.

If you look around you’ll see bright vibrant murals, fresh greenery, and a little bit of the future. You might notice a shipping container at the pickup window at their Center City location that offers you a glimpse of B+D’s Giving Containers set to open in Uganda, Africa later this year with more to come in the future. So not only will Bryn + Dane be providing healthy food locally but also worldwide. Inspired by the Tom’s method, for every meal purchased, a meal will be provided for free!
