Whether or not you’ve paid a visit to good ol’ Philadelphia, you probably are aware of the fact that it’s a historic town. Don’t let the iconic sites fool you though, Philly is very much a city on par with trend! We rounded up some of our favorite bloggers and tastemakers from the city and can’t wait to introduce you to them. Learn something new, get inspired and enjoy reading and fantasizing (about those cheesesteaks!) and this city.

The Whiskey Gypsy


Jessica Smith of The Whiskey Gypsy will show you a side of Philadelphia that will have you scrambling to book a visit. Whether she’s updating you on the best places to pop into while in Philly or showing off her awesome style, you’ll definitely find yourself envious of the coolness that she emits. She certainly knows how to spot aesthetically inspiring decor and can have you drooling over her photos and descriptions of cocktails that she’s oh so happily tried out for us.

Rosemary & Thyme


One look at Rosemary & Thyme and you’ll understand why we absolutely adore Kristie Janczyk. Her blog is a place of escape, she describes it as “A sanctuary from the flurry and unrest that has settled upon modern days. A place where small gatherings and food from scratch is more important than deadlines and over-committed schedules.” We quite like the sound of that! Besides her postive vibes in general, her styling skills are simply perfect. Follow along with her projects and be inspired to enjoy the things in life that are most important to you!

Minck Co.


We love perusing the internet and finding new designers and makers to learn about. Ashley Curran of Minck Co. helps us out by showcasing these people on her excellently curated blog. Take a peek and discover someone or something new. We promise you’ll be very pleased with your findings, especially during her monthly roundups of “This & That” where she showcases the products that have caught her eye recently!

Streets & Stripes


Chaucee Stillman of Streets and Stripes will definitely leave you feeling a bit envious. Whether it’s her homemade ginger beer (pictured in the photo above), her adorable pup or her visits to some of the most beautiful places—we’re sure you’re going to binge read all of her posts in one sitting! Trust us when we say you’ll learn about some local digs in Philadelphia and new recipes to try out, this blog is the one stop place for all things beautiful and creative.

    I’m a little biased, but the Be Net Worthy site is worth checking out. It’s a personal finance blog based in the Philly burbs – just started a month ago!
