We’ve been fans of Lauren Priori’s ever since she opened her custom and antique jewelry studio, L. Priori Jewelry, in Rittenhouse this time last year. We were fans, too, of the collaborative collection she did with local bridal stylist Lauren Hartman of Trousseau Style—and so it comes as no surprise that we’re sitting here drooling over her latest sparkly efforts, as well.
Until now, Philly-born startup LashBee—the brainchild of Wharton graduates Anjali Bhatia and Erin Soletski—had been offering their eyelash-extension and -treatment services inside other Philly salons and spas, such as About Face Skincare.

If you’ve ever been to an event at Terrain, the Glen Mills home and gardening center by Philly-based URBN, you know what a delightful way it is to spend an afternoon or evening.

The approach is called the “design thinking” philosophy.

Ask the Expert: Is There a Way to Look Skilled During Our First Dance Without Taking a Ton of Lessons?
Question: We’re interested in looking somewhat skilled and doing more than swaying for our first dance—but not in eight weeks of ballroom lessons or a carefully choreographed routine. Is there some sort of in-between we can sign up for?
As you have probably uttered to yourself more than once as you and your to-be have puzzled over where to take your post-nuptial getaway, this Zika thing has been a real bummer when it comes to planning a trip of a lifetime in a far-flung destination.
