#RunStreakPHL, where folks are running at least a mile every day of February, is going strong, and one Philly runner is keeping track of their runs in the best way possible: With what I’ll call run drawings, made by documenting their runs on their fitness tracker. So far, the person behind @phillystory has spelled out Jawn, Run215, Run Philly, made a truly impressive stick figure running image, and more — all by routing their runs to create these masterpieces. Granted, a few of the words look like they were written by a drunk baby — but still! Read more »

Philadelphia makeup artist Tatiana Ward is best known as BeatFaceHoney, the moniker she’s been using for four years on Instagram, where she’s amassed over 430,000 followers. But those BeatFaceHoney followers were cut off from her Instagram feed for several days after her page was suspended by Instagram, and Ward says it’s all because of a post she made last week in support of Rose Hamid, the Muslim woman who was reportedly ejected from a Donald Trump rally in South Carolina after she stood in silent protest.

fall lead

Be Well Philly editor, Emily, has been saying for about two weeks now that she feels as though she’s been cheated out of fall. And she’s not alone. I’ve heard this complaint from a number of Philly friends who prefer fall’s cooler temps and call for layers to the spring-like weather of late.

So, if you’re one of these people who’s currently suffering from some sort of reverse seasonal depression, this one’s for you: Below, 14 Philly Instagram photos that prove fall in Philly has in fact arrived — you know, in case today’s 59-degrees-and-rainy weather didn’t already do the trick.

Our Favorite Instagrams From OutFest 2015

The City’s annual OutFest, a celebration of just about everything LGBTQ, rocked the Gayborhood almost all day Sunday. Besides from the vendors and plenty of music (and drink), there were a few sobering moments to the festivities: A new Philadelphia rainbow flag was unveiled at a ceremony at City Hall (see our coverage of that event here) and a special mural was dedicated to the late Gloria Casarez at 12th Street Gym.

However, the day was mostly uninhibited fun, and Instagram was the perfect place to get a taste of all of those who celebrated. We rounded up some of our favorite shots from yesterday’s festivities.

Philly Woman Instagrams Period Blood, World Freaks Out

If you are a woman living in 2015, chances are, you’ve scurried to the bathroom with a tampon or pad tucked up your shirt sleeve or in your back pocket or maybe even in your waistband — you know, if it’s summertime and you don’t have shirt sleeves and your back pocket is exposed to the world (i.e. your coworkers). Because periods aren’t supposed to be talked about and evidence of them is certainly not supposed to be seen. At least that’s how we’ve all been conditioned. But one Philly woman, Louelle Denor, a philosophy student at Temple, has taken to Instagram to counter this idea with a very bloody selfie capturing her face, a Softcup, and a hand covered in period blood.
