TWOI Bites: West Reading Wine Walk

Listen y’all, if there are two things I love easily, it’s wine and walking! So when my Eventbrite suggested the West Reading Wine Walk, I was all aboard. I texted my sister Jay and told her to get ready to walk and wine the night way. The tickets were $10 each ($12 something after Eventbrite…

TWOI Bites: Queen City Family Restaurant

One thing to know about me is that I am a creature of habit. I have my favorite things, favorite places, favorite foods and I don’t mess around with those. One of those things, places, and foods can all be wrapped up in one: the diner. I got my love of diners from my dad….

TWOI Bites: La Bodega

Unless you live under a rock (sorry, Patrick), you’ve seen La Bodega all over your timeline. La Bodega is a new bodega located on 10th and Penn here in the city. It has hot and cold sandwiches, natural juices, shakes, and more. (Spoiler alert: it is an actual bodega) I’ve been wanting to go for…

WONDERLust – Chanticleer Gardens

I woke up this morning feeling restless. I didn’t want to stay in bed all day but I also didn’t know what to do. I also had a few stipulations when trying to figure out what to do because I’m currently on a “girl, get your life together” mission (aka stop spending money on bullshit.)…

The West Reading Fashion Show

Last night I had the honor to attend the West Reading Fashion Show. I’ll be honest and say that I had no idea what to expect. As a girl from Reading, I don’t spend too much time in West Reading. Everything I need is right here in my city. But as a lover of clothing…

The Wonder of Ivy Presents: Who to Watch in 2019

Last year I created The Wonder of Ivy’s “Who To Watch” list because I felt like I did not see myself or my peers represented in our community. Day in and day out I saw so many of us grinding in our lanes and felt that I needed to use my platform to elevate us…

All Eyes on You – Juan Zabala

Last year, I created the “Who to Watch” list, which spotlighted 16 creatives or entrepreneurs from Reading, PA. In honor of the new list approaching, I followed up with the 2018 class to see what they’ve done since we started watching them. How has your company/ brand/ you grown? I don’t know if my company…

All Eyes on You – Emmanuel  “Manz” Mezquita

Last year, I created the “Who to Watch” list, which spotlighted 16 creatives or entrepreneurs from Reading, PA. In honor of the new list approaching, I followed up with the 2018 class to see what they’ve done since we started watching them. How has your company/ brand/ you grown? My fan base has grown from…

The Ebony Luxe Collection Fashion Show

When I arrived to the Goggle Works, I knew this night was going to be unforgettable. I excitedly made my way to the fourth floor and as soon as I walked through the purple doors, I felt it. The room was buzzing. The room was set up with a main catwalk, and two smaller ones…

RDG Soul Speak’s 10 Songs to Help Bring You Into 2018

It’s 2018, y’all! Can you believe it? I certainly can’t! But believe it or not, a new year is upon us, which to some means “new year, new me.” While I don’t believe in a new me, I am definitely one of those people that chooses to see the new year as more than “just…
