If you’ve been dying to spend the Lululemon gift card you got for Christmas, looks like you’ll be able to do it in-store sometime soon. Lululemon announced on Facebook that they’ll be temporarily relocating the Walnut Street store to 1422 Walnut Street, where Kenneth Cole (which closed at the end of January) used to be. The temporary location is just a hop, skip and a throw from their 1527 Walnut Street location, which has been closed for the past few weeks after the store’s roof unexpectedly collapsed.

8 People You Almost Always See in a Philly Yoga Class

I think it’s safe to say the whole yoga-studio-filled-with-tea-drinking-hippies stereotype is a thing of the past. Now, thanks to an endless supply of yoga studios around the city, just about everyone has dipped their toes into the practice.

If you go to enough yoga classes, you start to notice some patterns, a few people you can pretty much count on always seeing when you hit the studio: the Lululemon addict, the skylight hog, the wide-eyed newbie. We decided to test our theory by hitting studios all over Philly and documenting the yogi types we saw over and over again.

Don’t get us wrong: We love each and every one of these people — they’re what keeps the yoga soup so darn interesting. But because chances are you’ve been at least one (if not all) of these people at some point in your yoga life, we thought it was high time to celebrate each and every one of them here on Be Well Philly. Namaste.

Taste Test: Our First Reactions to Coconut Milk at Starbucks

Remember a few weeks ago, when we told you guys that coconut milk would be coming to Philly Starbucks locations this month? Well, yesterday morning, moments after putting in my Starbucks order, I realized: It was the day to modify my order to include coconut milk! But it was too late. I face-palmed and went on with my life, my usual soy chai in hand. But this morning I was more with it, I ordered a coconut milk chai latte.

Before I’d tasted the coconut milk chai, I ran into a coworker on the elevator on my way up to the office. Turned out, she — being a lover of all things coconut — had also made a pit-stop at Starbucks solely to get her hands on a coconut-milk latte. We decided to reconvene and discuss after we’d both taken a few sips. A couple of minutes later, another coworker told me she was drinking a Starbucks’ coconut-milk latte, too, so of course I asked her what she thought. Below, a collection of all three of our first reactions.  Read more »
