Believe it or not Alex, I will be in Philadelphia this weekend. PM me if you want to get in touch. If not, I hope you will have some fun in the City of Brotherly Love. Last time I flew, I had oxygen on board and it made all the difference. You might check into it. Have a GREAT vacation.

I live right outside of Philadelphia and unfortunately will be away during the days you will be visiting, but I welcome you to my city! We have a lot of fabulous restaurants and if the weather holds out you can dine outside. The shopping will be wonderful - lots of sales of summer clothing and the fall stuff is starting to come in now (ugh! I hate the winter!). I was in London in March and your English prices are almost double everything so you will find bargains everywhere. There are some lovely day spas in center city Philadelphia if you tire and need to be pampered as well. Enjoy and have a healthy and safe trip!

Hi Smurf!
It's very nice to meet you!
I'm back now,but I did have a lovely massage,and managed to have quite a shopping spree at the 'king of prussia mall'!The make up that I use which helps cover my red telangectasia in the UK it is £39 a jar,in the mall it was $24 (£12) so of course I bought a few..amazing!
Hope today is a good day for you!
much love
Alexandra
