Last week I ventured out to Perkasie Pa to Down to Earth Café. A great restaurant which had amazing character and amazing breakfast and lunch dishes. We were at the café for a wedding brunch so we had a whole spread of breakfast foods like home-fries, delicious waffles, fresh fruit and homemade muffins. They also had a full smoothie bar and pastry counter. I plan on going back for their lunch and dinner specials, and they have live music on Fridays. If you are looking for a great place to go for a great breakfast lunch or dinner I highly recommend The Down to Earth Café.
This restaurant never disappoints, another wonderful experience at Fogo de Chao in King of Prussia. This past week I had the pleasure of dining with Fogo for the second time and I absolutely loved their new summer items they added to their menu. Some of the items they have added to their salad bar are the watermelon feta salad & the tomato mozzarella salad. There is also a couple new cocktails that we tried, the Watermelon Fresca and the Grapefruit Elderflower Spritzer both of them non alcoholic. The usual selection of different meats was always a treat especially when one of the managers came over and recommended that we should add the chimichurri sauce to the different meats. We also tried the new grilled pork belly with fresh pineapple. It was unbelievable along with the grilled Brazilian cheese that was drizzled with spicy honey sauce. Then finally was desert, which we had the papaya cream with dark raspberry liquor which we were told helped break down the digestion of the different meats we had. If you get the chance stop by your nearest Fogo de Chao restaurant and try these new menu items out, I promise you will not be disappointed.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of eating at Terrain Café in Devon Pa on Lancaster Ave. At terrain their main focus is fresh vegetables, meats and dairy that are brought right from farm to table. The décor for the restaurant was amazing with beautiful hardwood tables and wicker chairs amazing ferns hanging from the ceiling.
For the first course they had great selection of hand crafted muddled cocktails and a great list of different wines from around the area. Then the delicious bread that was brought out in these cute clay pots with olive oil butter.
The next course was our entrée which I ordered the flank steak frites with avocado butter. The steak was cooked to perfection along with the fries. Then came the desert which we ordered the triple berry buttermilk cake with olive oil ice cream. I highly recommended this place, the service was very nice and friendly. And try to come a couple minutes early and check out the terrain green house and their wonderful gift shop.
The shot heard around the NBA! The 76ers have fallen to the Toronto Raptors 92-90 in their seven game series. Kawhi Leonard scored the Raptors game winning shot with just 4 seconds left in the game. The Sixers fought hard all game to keep the game close but in the end they fell short and a couple of questions need to be answered in the off season. One of the questions is will the Sixers head coach Brett Brown be back for his 8th NBA season. After having another second round playoff elimination. Another question is will Jimmy Butler or Tobias Harris be back for another season after only signing with the 76ers with one year deals. These questions and more will have to be answered in order for the Sixers to hopefully advance to NBA finals and bring another championship to the city of Philadelphia.
Are you tired of looking for an extra electric plug around the house for all your devices? And all of the surge protectors in your house never seem to have enough room for the different shaped plugs?

It would make a great mothers day gift for the mothers that want to have a hair curler, blow dryer, hair straightener and their cell phone all going at once! Once you try this product out, you are never going back to those ugly and annoying surge protectors ever again.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of dining at the best Brazilian steakhouse in Philadelphia Fogo de Chão. We absolutely loved everything about this place, the decor the food and especially the service. We were first greeted by the restaurant manager Martin who had a bootle of their signature red wine Eulila. Our next course was the incredible salad and antiposto bar which had a great assortment of meats, cheeses, salads and sides.
Next came the wide variety of meats, that’s when the real experience came in. At least 6-7 different types of meats including filet mignon, lamb, sausage and chicken. With every type of meat came a different server to hand cut each piece.
Then to finish it all up our server suggested the coconut crème brûlée and trese loaches cake which was absolutely delicious. Overall it was a very enjoyable dining experience and I hope to go back soon.
Last weekend I finally saw one of my favorite Divas, Mariah Carey, in concert! The tickets were part of my birthday present from my father, who accompanied me, though I think he has had a secret crush on her for years. I have been a Mariah fan of her since her first album, when I was only a kid! I remember growing up with the songs “Honey” and “You will always be my baby.” We also went because of the nostalgia, since it was a part of my growing up in the 90’s.
I was unsure what to expect. I was half afraid it would be a night of lip-syncing and glitter. Thankfully, all my expectations where wildly exceeded! Mariah’s live vocals and energy filled the Hard Rock venue in Atlantic City like a flood! Her passion to deliver for her fans, as well as her gratitude, was so personal and professional! She did all of her top hits and also music from her new album, Caution, in the most gorgeous outfits (she did four quick changes). Not only was Mariah a top notch performer, she also had elaborate male dancers and a complete band! Everyone at the show was delighted by her special on stage guests, her children, Monroe & Moroccan, who were absolutely the cutest!
I am just so thrilled to have seen such a legend and cannot wait to do it again!
I am, in no way, a fan of super hero movies. When I was a kid, my dad made me go and sometimes the snack bar was the best part. Usually, the action and the fast-moving plotline produces a thrill that can keep me in my seat, but no matter what you say, the fierce Halley Barry will always be Storm and the great Patrick Stewart, Dr. Charles Xavier. However, the new Captain Marvel movie recreated that childhood passion and thrill that I once had gotten from only the best super hero movies. She was brave, funny, and smart! She was also completely clothed and didn’t use sex to create a distraction from a weak plot. She’s a great role model for all women. She spoke her mind and listened to her heart, regardless of what people thought about that. She didn’t let others’ opinions inhibit her, she believed and trusted in herself. I think everyone could use a little Captain Marvel in their life. It is a KICK BUTT chick flick!
Guess who baccck!! That’s right “DJax” aka Desean Jackson is back where it all started.. Philadelphia! Desean just signed a one year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. He will be joining a great core group of wide receivers already on the roster which include Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor. Desean is the kind of deep threat the Eagles need on the roster to make a playoff run at the 2020 season. I can’t wait to see what other big moves the Eagles make in next couple week to help improve roster. #philadelphiaeagles #flyeaglesfly
My first event was slowed down by snow. But I didn't let it stop us! We had such an amazing Galentines Girls Night! I can't thank everyone enough, we had such great group of dynamic women. The venue P.J. Whelihan,s in oaks was very accommodating and was a amazing private space for our event! They also have one of my personal favorite dishes loaded nachos! I would definitely suggest trying there's. I also really enjoyed hearing everyone's passion for professional success and cannot wait to see what the year has in store!
Hi there, My name is Jasmine and I'm a wife and dog mom. From the suburbs to the city, I love the city of Philadelphia and everything it has to offer! I've always had a passion for makeup, style, and firmly believe leopard print and pink are neutrals. Make that - neutrals you should wear daily. Except on Sundays. Sundays are for Eagles Green!
