Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) is a community art center and gallery that provides the public with access to Isaiah Zagar’s unique mosaic murals. 

It’s located on South street which is along my commute to work everyday. I’m so fortunate to work in a city with so much to offer and I want to take advantage of it no matter how touristy it may be. 

Visit Philly! 


Must Have Bow Wedges

Just sharing another PreppyTeppy find. I found the perfect wedges with a cute bow on the back. It comes in three different colors- black, white, and pink.  Believe it or not but they’re from Target! 

I bought both white and pink. The white one was too bridal like for me so I returned them. They are true to size but a little narrow in the front.
