Best Dressed


The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is the fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. This year’s theme is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

Here are my picks for this year’s “best dressed” list.
Naomi Campbell in Cavalli Couture
Rahel McAdams in Valentino
Poppy Delevinge in Marchesa
Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace
Lilliana Vazquez in Pamella Roland

These ladies look incredible! Can’t wait to see what fashions next year’s red carpet.

You Can iFLY


In case you haven’t heard, iFLY, the world’s largest Indoor Skydiving operation, is now
open and delivering the dream of flight to adventure seekers in the Philadelphia area. iFLY is located in King of Prussia, adjacent to the mall, it is the newest facility and the company’s 20th tunnel in the U.S.

Each iFLY indoor skydiving facility is a marvel of advanced engineering that replicates the experience of skydiving. To prepare for their flight, customers complete a training class guided by one of iFLY’s flight and safety instructors. After training is complete, they are outfitted with flight gear, including goggles, helmet and flight suit, and then – with their instructor at their side – enter the flight chamber and are supported by a cushion of air.

Every flight package includes training, flight gear and flight time with an International Bodyflight Association-certified instructor. The IBA has established the Gold Standard for training and safety standards for Indoor Skydiving Instructors; iFLY instructors meet or exceed IBA standards.

For more information about iFLY’s flight packages, prices and to book your flight time at iFLY King of Prussia, please visit:

iFLY // 290 Goddard Boulevard // King of Prussia, PA 19406

This new exhilarating experience is perfect for the thrill seeker in you. I flew and loved it! (The pic in this feature is me with my instructor, Casey)

Antiques & Art

Summer of 14 (1)(1)

The Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show is this weekend, April 15-17 at The Navy Yard.

The weekend’s programming features: designer Ellie Cullman, consistently recognized by “Architectural Digest” on its AD 100 top designers list; Johanna McBrien, Editor-in-Chief of “Antiques & Fine Art” magazine and; Nancy Moses, award- winning author of Lost in the Museum: Hidden Treasures and the Stories they Tell; and Alexandra Kirtley, Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Curator of American Decorative Arts.

In addition to the designers, curators and authors sharing their stories, there is also a special loan exhibit, “Secret Treasures,” that is filled with unique objects from dealers’ personal collections. Many of the collectibles have seldom been exhibited publicly.

Long regarded as one of the best Shows of its kind in the country, this year’s event also features 58 dealers specializing in a wide range of periods and styles – offering a selection of furniture, fine and decorative arts, silver, textiles, porcelain and jewelry from the 17th through the mid-20th centuries. More contemporary art is being infused into the mix of antiques as well, which is a change from years past.

Grand Lux Brunch


A few weeks ago I was invited to brunch at Grand Lux Cafe. My experience was delightful!

The Weekend Brunch menu is a fun mix of American, French, Mexican fare and everything else in between. The menu also includes a few thirst quenching cocktails like a classic Mimosa, Strawberry Bellini, Spicy Mary and more.

My meal was exceptional that started with Breakfast Beignets, soft pillowy balls of fried dough covered in powdered sugar served with cinnamon sugar, vanilla whisky creme anglaise and raspberry preserves. This was washed down with a Fresh Strawberry Bellini, strawberry puree, Prosecco and Cointreau. Cheers!

The entrees arrived and they tasted as good as they looked. First up was the Biscuits and Gravy with Eggs, warm buttermilk biscuits and sunny side up eggs smothered with house made sausage gravy, served over crispy crushed potatoes. This dish is incredible. Every item from the biscuits, sausage gravy, eggs (cooked to order) and potatoes were perfectly seasoned. Then came the Fried Chicken and Waffles, a golden fluffy waffle sprinkled with powdered sugar, topped with crispy fried chicken strips, toasted fresh pecans and pecan honey butter sauce. This entree is the best balance of sweet and savory.

In case you did not know, Waffle Day is Friday, March 25. In honor of this special day, be sure to visit a Grand Lux Cafe near you and order the Fried Chicken and Waffles. (Waffle Day began in Sweden as Våffeldagen, actually due to confusion between the Swedish “vårfrudagen” meaning “Our Lady’s Day” which falls on the same date. The day historically marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated by the eating of many waffles.) Happy Spring and Happy Eating!
