Hey Philadelphia lovers!
For 2014, I want to focus more on the city where I live – Philadelphia – and I’m starting off by hosting a huge giveaway for Valentines’ Day with Femme & Fortune, a Philly-based online magazine with awesome curated content.
We’ve partnered with some of the best businesses in the Midtown Village neighborhood of Philly to put together an all-inclusive Date Night package for one lucky lucky couple to win. Here’s a quick peek into how the date will go:[dropcap style=”1″ size=”5″]1[/dropcap]You & your lover will be picked up by an Uber car, and driven to Andre Richard Salon to get glam for your big night. Andre Richard’s Salon has won Best Salon, #1 Hair Color, Best Stylist For “Him”, Best Salon from Philadelphia Magazines G Philly, and accolades from Philly Style, Vogue, and Lucky magazines – so believe me, you’ll both be in good hands! [dropcap style=”1″ size=”5″]2[/dropcap]After you’re all pampered & primped & looking gorgeous, we’ll head over to Bella Turka‘s new home on 13th street. You’ll have a $100 budget to browse & pick the perfect piece (or pieces) of jewelry to remember the day. Koray Avci & his wife travel the world hand-picking exotic pieces to bring back, and they’re happy to share the story behind any particular item. [dropcap style=”1″ size=”5″]3[/dropcap]Now that you’re gorgeous AND sporting some new jewels, it’s just a short walk to Vintage Wine Bar & Bistro for a specially curated dinner, accompanied by a tasting flight of wine. Vintage’s management team know a thing or two about wine, and have put together a selection that will have your taste buds singing. [dropcap style=”1″ size=”5″]4[/dropcap]I’ll escort you through each step (while still giving you plenty of together time), and take photos of everything for a recap here on my blog. Once I’ve edited everything, I’ll provide a link for you to download the best shots of your special day. Melissa Alam, co-founder of Femme & Fortune, will also interview you for a feature on FemmeAndFortune.com! [dropcap style=”1″ size=”5″]5[/dropcap]When you’ve stuffed your bellies full of delicious food & drink, the night is yours to celebrate however you want! Doesn’t matter if you feel like dancing like there’s no tomorrow, or heading home for a night cap – Uber is there to make sure you get home safely.
