My boyfriend and I went to the beach quite a few times during my visit to New York. The weather was just too perfect to be spending it indoors! And of course, I never forgot to pack the most important beach necessity, sunscreen! But not just any sunscreen, the Glossier Invisible Shield. This is a total game-changer because it's not like other sunscreens on the market. Most sunscreens are thick, feel heavy on the skin, and leave a rather unattractive white cast after applying. But with the Invisible Shield, it's just that, invisible! It glides on clear and feels lightweight which is perfect for those hot and humid summer days. It also has an SPF of 35, so it's not too much but not too little! Also just like any other sunscreen, make sure to reapply when needed or just about every few hours.
Peep the Glossier gang in the latest issue of Domino Magazine. Thanks Briana for introducing this magazine to me, I had to pick it up as soon as I saw her post this on her Instagram! You can pick this magazine up at your local bookstore or news stand.
My boyfriend loved using the Invisible Shield! So that's another great thing about the Invisible Shield, it's not only for us girls, but our adorable boyfriends/significant others too! It kept us both from getting sun damaged and let us have plenty of safe sun!

Don't forget that sunscreen shouldn't just be applied when the sun is out, but all year round! Sun exposure is one of the main causes for pre-mature aging, and we definitely don't want any of that! So step up your skincare game and be sure to protect your skin and wear sunscreen. You can get the Invisible Shield over on the Glossier Website or at the Showroom out in SoHo.

Also for all your Canadian Glossier fans, the wait is finally over and Glossier is now shipping internationally to Canada! Be sure to subscribe to their emailing list and follow them on Instagram to hear where they'll be shipping out to next. Lastly, use my coupon code for 10% off your first order!

Anthony and I have been talking about taking a day trip to Philly for quite some time now. We almost didn't go. But fortunately we managed to make it work and had so much fun! I can see Philadelphia as a possible candidate of somewhere I see myself possibly living. The vibe it gave off was almost like a hybrid between Nashville and New York put together. It wasn't quiet as fast-paced as New York, yet still had the same liveliness. However at the same time it was also a bit more laid back like Nashville.

The first place we went to, of course, was a donut shop, Dottie's Donuts. We heard about this place through Instagram and had to check it out, especially because they are a vegan donut shop! Their donuts were enormous yet light and fluffy. I had the matcha-lemon and Anthony had the cherry almond. Both were so yummy!
Look at that hamstring muscle. Unf.

We arrived to Philly early in the day (like 9 am early) so not a lot of places were open just yet. So we decided to walk around a do a little sight-seeing. The Rocky Steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art was our first stop. If you watched my June Vlog, you'd see me Naruto running some of the steps lol. We didn't actually go inside the museum though. But not too far from the Rocky Steps was the Rodin Museum.

Welcomed by "The Thinker"

We started to get hungry and were on the hunt to find Hip City Veg. It took probably about 40 minutes just to find a parking spot. I was starting to get hangry and it didn't help that it was possibly one of the hottest days in Philly, and we all know I don't do well in the heat. But it was all worth it after we got our food. Anthony ordered the Zip Burger and I ordered the Philly Steak. Both were mouth-watering. If I had to only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be Hip City's Philly Steak. Yes. It was that good. Don't forget the sweet potato fries and sriracha aioli.  Mouth-watering.

The heat was really starting to get to me, and made me not want to do anything but complain and whine. But as we were walking around we stumbled across this giant water fountain that people were swimming in. This fountain was Heaven-Sent I tell you, because it just made the hot weather more tolerable. We were both wishing we had brought an extra pair of clothes so we could swim around, but we managed to cool off just by dipping our feet in.

We couldn't really think of much else to do, and yet we still had the whole day ahead of us! To kill some time and until we thought of something else to do, we walked across the street to the Free Library. Then we walked to a frozen yogurt place near by to beat the heat. Then after almost deciding to go home from not being able to think of anything else to do, The Magic Gardens popped into my head! I don't know how I forgot about this place when it was on my list of places I wanted to visit!





The Magic Gardens is not your typical botanical garden. It's a array of murals created by different bits and pieces of what we would deem "trash." The artist behind the Magic Gardens is Isaiah Zagar and it took him about 8 years to finish. Even the Obamas donated some tiles to Zagar for him to incorporate into his work.

This was the last stop on our Philly trip and I don't think there could've been a better way to end it. I'm so happy that Anthony seemed to enjoy it more than I expected! Couldn't have asked for a more adventurous day with my favorite person to have adventures with :)

The Glossier Showroom was at the tip-top of my list of places I wanted to visit and with my recent trip to New York, it came true! The showroom is the only physical store where you can purchase and try out Glossier products in person. They currently don't have any other showroom or stores, but do have the occasional pop-up shops in New York and California. (waiting for them to pop up in Nashville lol)  Here are some photos I snapped while stopping by the showroom.

When you first walk in, one of the first things you see is their newest release, the Balm dotcom in Birthday Cake.
Throughout the showroom there were cute little sayings on the mirrors, like this one that says "You Look Good."

 Have safe sun this summer with the Glossier Invisible Shield! 


 I thought it was so neat that when you want to place a purchase, you go up to one of the workers in the cute, pink jumpsuits (which I unfortunately did not get a photo of) and they fill out a form that looks similar to a prescription! You simply just tell them what you would like to buy, they fill it out, and then walk up to the register to purchase your goodies :)
Visiting the Glossier showroom was so much fun! I loved how bright and pink the room was, seriously a room full of aesthetics. And being able to try out all the Glossier products that I've been eyeing basically made me feel like a kid in a candy store. If you're ever in the SoHo area and want to check out the showroom, just look for the Glossier banners outside! Overall, a fun experience and super happy with what I bought <3
