5 Quick and Easy Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Christmas was here and gone and so was January! I cannot believe it’s almost time for Valentine’s Day. If you haven’t bought your loved one a gift yet that is ok. If you aren’t buying for someone else, but want to get something new for yourself that is also ok!

Scroll down to see 5 quick and easy gifts for Valentine’s Day.



Silk Underwear because who doesn’t want to be comfortable in bed? ($40) Tani

MH40 Headphones because music is important and to enjoy music you need great sound! ($399) Master & Dynamic

Chuck II Coated Leather High Top because old or dirty shoes are not ok and John Varvatos is a legend as are Converse so these shoes are basically needed in every guy’s wardrobe. ($150) John Varvatos x Converse

Custom Live Pixel Phone Case because mass produced phone cases are very 2014 ($40+ ) Google Live Cases

Rose 2016 because it’s a great bottle served chilled and it’s from one of my favorite vineyards. ($17/bottle) Wolffer Estate Wineyard

Why You Should Go To Academy Ball 160

Philadelphia’s best white-tie gala of the year is happening again on January 28. I was so disappointed when it was canceled last year because of Winter Storm Jonas especially because the concert was to feature the Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor Martin Short. So you can imagine how excited I am that he’ll be performing this year!


The theme of this year’s event is Philadelphia’s Golden Heritage, and it’s the Academy of Music’s 160th Anniversary. I so enjoy this evening of great performances, food and drink with amazing company. How fun that after the performance at the Academy, gala-goers will promenade down the Avenue of the Arts to an elegant dinner and Ball at Hyatt at the Bellevue? Ahh, such glamour!


As a member of the Young Friends committee for the the event, I’m grateful I had the opportunity to work with the other three people you see pictured here, who are also members of the committee, Stacey, Matrin, and Alison. I’m excited I can finally share with you these images we captured during a photoshoot inside the absolutely stunning Academy of Music. For the shoot, the ladies wore dresses from Bedazzled Boutique in Newtown Square and jewelry from REALM, and I wore tails provided by Henry A. Davidsen. For the Ball, Martin will wear his own custom tails.




If you’ve never had the fortune of walking through its halls and ballrooms, please make it a priority to get yourself there! I promise you’ll be blown away… But then, with these photos, you don’t really have to take my word for it, do you?

Buy tickets to the Academy of Music.
