Cute, Creative, And Cool: Little Free Libraries

This morning I came across something so adorable and inspiring, it had to be shared. It also involves reading, and the bookworm in me got really excited. Little Free Library is a free book exchange carried on through hundreds of cute, tiny libraries nationwide. I love the idea of book exchange. While Kindles and other tablet devices are making reading convenient (and green!), I still love the romance of used books, particularly when they are shared. You can learn more about where to find one of these charming exchanges near you, or even better how to start your own, by visiting the Little Free Library website. (BoingBoing)

Anthony Bourdain’s “Layover” in Philadelphia: Where Would You Send Him?

We heard Anthony Bourdain is in Philadelphia to shoot scenes for his new show The Layover, and being fans of his, we were so excited by the news! I love his show No Reservations and its off-the-beaten-path approach to food and visiting places that most people would never discover while traveling. The concept behind The Layover is showing viewers what to do in a city during only a brief period of time. I’m so curious as to where he’s going in Philly! For those of you who are in or familiar with the area, where do you think he should go? Read More

BLDG 25 Blog Makeover!

Welcome to day 1 of the new BLDG 25 Blog! We’re featuring a new design and new content, which has been a thrill for us to create and now launch. We had so much fun concepting and building our new BLDG 25 Blog home. As the days pass, you’ll notice new content areas, we’ll introduce new faces, and will have an array of inspiring guests and contributors to participate in all the fun. The excitement in BLDG 25 is palpable.

One of the first of many additions is Free People Weekly Horoscopes! Tracy Allen, our contributing astrologer, will share astrological blueprints, insightful reflections, and tidbits of wisdom week after week to “amplify our personal myths”, as she thoughtfully puts it. We’re also expanding all content areas, and introducing some new ones, including Beauty, Décor, and Features which will come to you daily, weekly, as often as you can read it really.

The BLDG 25 Blog has always been a place to share the magic of Free People, which in essence, is simply exploring the lives and loves of Free People girls.

A special thanks to our awesome Graphic Design team, who brilliantly came up with the new layout, the blog team and contributors, who conjured up so much new exciting content that we thought our readers would enjoy, and the sweat and focus of our Web team in making all our visions become a reality.

We hope you love it – let us know what you think and leave a comment below :)
