Homes of Philadelphia

You know I have a weak spot for anything that throws Philadelphia some love. It can be a tough city, but at the end of the lease, you always renew.

Homes of Philadelphia is a visual portrayal of unique homes from the city of Philadelphia. Austin Hodges and Billy Cress, two prominent Philly Instagramers, met each other through the app and later became friends and then joined forces to self publish Homes of Philadelphia volumes 1 & 2 showcasing the stunning textures, colors and lines that defines classic Philly character.

Check out their BigCartel Shop where both volumes are sold ($35-$45).

London Bound

My packing list is getting longer and longer, and I'm facing mountains of laundry this weekend, but I'm so excited to head to London in just a few days! While over there with Skype I'll be hanging out with Sonya, the winner of the boyfriend jeans challenge, and Holly, a stylist extraordinaire while we shop the streets of London. Then after we've exhausted all of our back up credit cards, I'll be searching for the coolest places to photograph and calling on other Skype Moment Makers to photograph their cities and what makes them unique! Follow along with the  #SkypeCitySights hashtag and see what I'm up while I'm abroad over at my Instagram @streets_stripes, as well as Skype's Instagram.

Heading to London with #SkypeCitySights ... Where Should We Go?

It's just a mere 12 days until I board a plane bound for London, England. Have you ever been? Do you have any recommendations of places to go or things to do? We have a pretty packed schedule as it is, but I want to make sure we find the gems.

Elk Neck Camping

Camping down at Elk Neck turned out to be a great idea for the extended holiday weekend. I count only 20 bug bites as a success.
