BIG NEWS: I'm Moving to Philadelphia!!!

And finally I am ready to let you all know my big news!!!! I will be permanently moving to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a little less than two weeks for my new job at Free People's home office! It really is a dream come true! This is going to be a major life change . . . being away from my family and loved ones, all the way on the other side of the country. It still hasn't hit me yet that this is all happening . . . and oh so fast! I don't start until May 9, but my sister and I already had a little tear fest going the other day in the car, stuck in traffic to be exact. I am going to miss my little baby sister the most of all. I love her so much. But no matter how many miles away we are from each other, we'll always be there for each other! She is the peanut butter to my jelly!

On the other side of the emotional spectrum, I am so so excited to be joining one of the most talented teams in fashion (not to mention one of my most favorite brands!). Ever since I picked up my first Free People catalog way back in 2006, I always dreamed of working for the brand . . . and now look at me! Crazy how things turn out, huh? I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. But I must say, I owe a lot of what I have accomplished so far to this blog. Without the dedication that I have given Color Me Nana so far, I wouldn't be where I am now or be having the amazing opportunities coming my way almost unexpectedly. You've all seen me explore different aspects of the fashion industry, from a writer for The Fashion Spot to the social media coordinator of Volcom Girls, and I feel like I've finally found my groove. So in turn, I must thank you all for supporting me and reading me little old bloggy blogster of a blog. I couldn't be able to do what I love without you all! And that really says a lot :)

I am still going to make sure to keep this blog up and running when I'm in Philly. I'd never leave you guys in the dark! I love you all too much! My head is in the sky right now, and I hope you all stick around to enjoy the ride with me as I jump into this new chapter of my life. So the fortune in my fortune cookie did happen to really ring true: "Your dream will come true when you least expect it"


As long as you follow your heart and never let go of your dreams, you'll find your rhythm eventually.
Now, are there any bloggers or readers in Philadelphia who can give me some tips about places in the city to live / things to do / places to see? Anyone want to be my official tour guide? haha. I've only spent one whole day last summer exploring Philadelphia, and though that's not enough to really get too know a place, I know that I will love calling this place my new home. And I'm only 2 hours away from NYC! GAH!

****

** Oh, and make sure to VOTE for my amazing little sister and fellow blogger Natalie to be MANGO's next It-Girl! She totally deserves it and is the epitome of MANGO's American girl! Details on how to vote are one her blog!

I saw your blog from another bloggers page and had to read your post, since I live in Philly :) congrats on your new job! Philly can be an interesting place to live, but fair warning that the summer here can be painfully humid since the city's in between 2 rivers, haha. There are plenty of things to do/places to go to get out of the heat though!

I live in Northern Delaware... so only about 20-30 min. away. I'm going to a concert tomorrow night in Philly actually at the Theatre of Living Arts. They have some other good music venues there too: The Electric Factory, Tracadero, Starlight Ballroom, First Unitarian Church (not religious stuff, they do cultural events to make extra money. this place is my favorite ) . I'd be a terrible Delawarean if I didn't say .. come shop here some time, ALL shopping is tax-free :) Beaches are nice too in DE and only about 2.5 hours from Philly. I like them much better than Jersey. They're no SoCal of course.. but still nice. Um, also check out restaurants in philly. There are ton of new ones. "Park" is one of my favorites for an outdoor lunch!
Good luck!!!

Congrats! It seems like they're such a great brand to work for, especially considering your style!

Seriously, can there be a Philly blogger meet up once you're living here? I live right outside of Philly, but I go there pretty frequently. I imagine I know far less than those who actually live in the city (though I am looking for a place myself!) but there's certainly several cool spots.

Good luck!

Congrats on your job...I am actually starting at one of their stores in Philly on Monday! This is a fun city, it's a big "small" city. Lots of fun neighborhoods with their own little vibes. I suggest a NFT(not for tourists) guidebook, I bought one when I moved to the city and it was really helpful.

There is a Chinatown so hopefully you can find some good boba!

Congrats, I am a huge fan of the blog!

Awww a little sad and intrigued I feel like you just started Volcom. I hope you do an interview about this seriously I want to know how it all changed so fast? Were you only suppose to be with Volcom for a short time or are you still going to write for them? Can't help it I'm curious.

Hi Dylana. I have been following your blog for ages and I live 5 minutes from Philly on the Jersey side. I am soooo excited for you to work with Free People, they are my favourite brand! If you need anything let me know! I don't have a blog yet but I want to start one someday. My e-mail is jananflythe@gmail.com if ever need someone to show you around. There are so many amazing places in Philly and in NJ you're going to really love it here! I even know of some (my little secret secret) super amazing and cheap thrift shops I can show you sometime.

Congrats on your move. I actually live in Philly and this is my first time visiting your blog! pretty funny. Congrats on your move. its a great small city close to new york (where i'm from) so you never feel far from "it all" and there's an amazing art scene here. You'll enjoy being around so many creative folks. it'll be great to have more big bloggers in the city. Best of luck to you! Love&LIght

Dylana my dear, so happy you got the job of your dreams! I actually interviewed for Free People a few months ago but haven't heard back from them, I am also a HUGE fan of their clothing and the lifestyle of the brand is truly unique! I wish you all the best in Philly and hey if they need a new addition call me, I would move to Philly in a heart beat!

Congrats and may this be a smooth and fun move for you!

Hugs & kisses from Rio!

Congrats on the job! I've lived in Northern Liberties for a little over 3 years. I spend a lot of time in Fishtown too, though. Let me know if you have any questions. It really varies on the neighborhood, but there are so many great places to eat, shop, hang out. I also got rid of my car about 2 years ago and have no problem getting around by bike, bus, subway or on foot.
