Hello, hello! I have a feeling that you guys are going to love today’s post. Stay tuned to the end for a GIVEAWAY!
If you’ve been following along with me over on Instagram, then you know that I had the opportunity to have a fun little staycation here in the City of Sisterly Love with some of my blogger girls!
We stayed at the Sonesta right in the heart of Center City, and it could not have been a more perfect experience. First of all, the entire hotel is gorgeous! It’s got such a fun, retro yet hip feel to it. The best part? We got dinner at Ruth’s Chris steakhouse which is located right in the lobby. So, no, we didn’t have to walk outside in the freezing cold!
So, Thursday night I packed up my bag (this cute, mongrammed one might I add) and was off for a night full of laughs, wine and food! MUCH NEEDED.
I met the girls (Deepika, Ashlee, Allison, Sarah and Erica – check out all of their blogs by clicking their names) at the Presidential Suite – um, yes… We stayed in the Presidential Suite! How amazing. As soon as I arrived, the girls were already getting their makeup done by Cheekadee Makeup (btw, how cute is that name?!)
This was the first time that I had ever had my makeup done and it was so much fun (and relaxing). Anyways, Cheekadee Makeup is an on-site makeup service. You can set up an appointment with them and they’ll come out to wherever you are – at home, in the city at a hotel, anywhere! All of the girls loved their makeup so much!
After we got our makeup done, we headed downstairs to Ruth’s Chris… and let me just say – we had no idea about the amazingness we were in for.
First of all, the service at Ruths Chris in Philly was impeccable – I mean, we literally felt like we were princesses! They sat us down at a round table next to the fire place, it was so cozy and cute!
All of the staff were beyond amazing! The manager sent over the most insane seafood tower complete with: lobster, crab and shrimp! Then he sent us an entire tray of oysters.
But let me just say, the steak was TO DIE FOR. We also go the Lobster Mac&Cheese, which was probably the most delicious thing that I have ever eaten!
I mean seriously, our entire table was covered with food – what MORE could you ask for?! The brussel sprouts had bacon bits in them which made them oh, so tasty!
Before we knew it, we had been sitting at the table for 2.5 hours! LOL, so at around 11:30 we headed back up to our room.
We spent another two hours just talking, it was so refreshing and FUN to have a “slumber party”. I haven’t had one of those since I was a kid (I mean, unless you count college? Because that’s just basically one big slumber party).
SO, if you want an opportunity for you and your gal pals to live like princesses for a night (LOL) then DO NOT miss out on entering this giveaway. You’ll be able to have the same exact experience that we did!
Between the entire stay at the Sonesta, getting our makeup done and then having the most amazing meal at Ruth’s Chris – the entire night was honestly a dream!
