the orangery in london is my favorite place in the world – it overlooks kensington palace. they serve afternoon tea and have the best cucumber sandwiches i have ever tasted! i love photography, traveling, cooking, painting… i like making stuff. on a typical day off i’ll wake up and go to the corner diner for breakfast. then go to reading terminal and buy fresh fruit and then walk around philly and head to the park or water. i probably would end the night with dinner with some friends. i have some bizarre taste in music – i like ALL kinds. taylor swift, phil collins, edward sharpe, mariah carey, wendy rene are some of my favorites. the people i work with inspire me on a daily basis – seeing what these girls wear to work is inspiration enough!
my greatest loves are my fiancé, family, friends and my cat. i’m a huge phillies fan and seeing them win the world series a couple of years ago was incredible! i also love spending time with friends and traveling. i recently went to seattle and dublin for the first time, which was amazing – but my favorite place in the world is definitely ocean city, NJ! i spend as many weekends there as i can. being on or near the beach is so relaxing and peaceful. i mostly listen to classic rock and some of my favorite bands are U2, the rolling stones, tom petty, the black crowes and radiohead. i’m a member of the world wildlife fund, and protecting the environment has always been one of the most important causes to me. the work this organization does to preserve nature and protect endangered species around the world is really inspiring to me!
my greatest loves are my yorkie, art, traveling, swings, anything vintage, and all my nieces and nephews. i also love to bake and am always looking for new things to try – dessert is my weakness! on weekends i love to go out and explore the suburbs of philadelphia looking for new places to eat, shop, or just to take a nice walk. at night you will most likely find me downtown philadelphia at a bar where my boyfriend is DJ-ing having drinks with friends!
i love yoga! my other hobbies are gardening and raising chickens. on a typical day off, i take my daughter to ballet class, garden all day and then have people over for food, wine and fun. my home is my favorite place in the world!
i like quirky girl singers…right now i like she & him…but i always like the cure.
as mentioned, our may catalog features real girls who work for free people. this month on the blog we’ll be profiling these lovely ladies and learning more about their life and style… starting with our web merchandiser!
i am inspired daily by the people i surround myself with. i have some very special people in my life, whether they are best friends, family members or work acquaintances, they’re all here for a reason.
i LOVE to travel… the pure, clean, crisp air of the colorado mountains gives me a feeling i can’t describe. a close second would have to be the redwood national forest in california- a magical place for sure! i also love going out to eat and trying new restaurants, and cooking. i’m just starting to teach myself, so i started a cooking club dinner night with my girlfriends. some of my favorite things are live music, dancing at concerts with friends, pilates, riding my bike and hikes with my new pup… and flipping through fashion mags, which thankfully has become part of my job! on a typical day off i sleep in with my dog, cat and boyfriend – yes,all in one bed – make banana pancakes and take a walk to the farmer’s market, then maybe stroll around the city with a girlfriend, checking out shops and getting manicures. then out to see a show with some friends at night or dinner with my boyfriend!
i love lots of kinds of music – everything from biggie smalls to hank williams jr. some of my all-time favorites: the disco biscuits (i have followed them on tour for the past 10 years… so yeah, i guess i like them) phish- they changed my life, grateful dead, pink floyd, radiohead, muse, zeppelin, the doors, jay z, beck, nirvana…
and some newer favorites: phoenix, gorillaz, MGMT, hot chip, passion pit
