{ PACKING ESSENTIALS } PRESIDENT'S DAY WEEKEND GETAWAY...



I don't have the bandwidth to take a real vacation over President's Day this year, but I am heading to Philly for a night on Saturday—just to get away for a minute. As I've effused in the past, I loved Philadelphia because I fell in love there, and now I present tense love Philly because it's fun, historic, inexpensive and brimming with awesome bars and restaurants. It has a lot of the energy of New York on a smaller, scrappier scale. My girlfriend here in the city is from outside Philadelphia, so we'll get some quality time in the 'burbs with her family, as well as do some running around downtown.

The not-so-great news? The forecast looks like it's going to be absolutely freezing. A high of 21 degrees on Saturday will be brutal. However, I imagine that we'll take advantage of all the indoor activities available to us—like brunch. 

Since we're going for such a short time, I'm packing my Cuyana weekend bag with just a few necessities: my black Vince ankle boots for night and my Stan Smith sneakers for day (obviously), a cool/cozy sweatshirt from Bridge & Burn and the Rag Bone/Jean black skinnies I finally ordered for myself after hearing so many good things about them. Along with a warm wool coat, a beanie and big sunnies should help fight off the chill.

I also recently picked up this tiny matte black bucket bag (on sale!) and it will be the perfect little pouch to take me all over town day and night. (Shop more mini bags here, and bucket bags here.)

I'm also going to finally buckle down and read Modern Romance on the bus ride because Valentine's Day, amiright?

Are you traveling for the holiday weekend?

  3. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr.Ogudugu by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.Ogudugu. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.Ogudugu for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM.
