It’s been some time since I’ve given you a solid life update. I wanted to start this new series, “Life Lately” to share all of the fun events I get to go to. I feel like we spend so much time talking about our outfits, and what we’re buying, what we’re loving, what you should buy etc., that we forget to share what’s going on behind all the clothes.
Furla Blogger Brunch
Life lately has been really exciting and jam packed with super fun events, if you follow me on Snap (@ashleyzeal) or on Instastories (@twopeasinaprada), you get to see a lot of these happenings. But there are so many of you who don’t – so my goal in 2017 is to be better about sharing my life here on the blog too!
Last week Furla invited us to an incredible blogger brunch. My friend, Erika (of Whiskey and Lace) and I decided to take advantage of the morning event in Union Square and to do a festive photoshoot with Joe Charles and the beautiful Christmas tree. It was so calm & peaceful with no one there. And the photos turned out ah-mazing.
From there, we headed to the brunch where we got to catch up with all of our blogger babes. The event was amazing, and Furla totally spoiled us. Their new location in Union Square is gorgeous, so if you’re out Christmas shopping downtown, definitely stop in!

Got to come home with all these bags! The one on the bottom is for Emily!
Burritt Room Influencer Dinner
Emily Martin of Emily Martin Events & Communications aka the Jet Setting Fashionista, invited me to the most incredible dinner event last Tuesday! It was at Charlie Palmer’s Burritt Room, located inside the Mystic Hotel. It was an incredible four-course meal, but really seven because the snacks were courses, too! We had everything from pork butt and venison, to caviar and foie gras ice cream. It was a meal I will never forget!
I finally got to meet my girl crush, Daisy Barringer, who I’ve been following for the past 6 years! There were so many amazing blogger babes at the dinner, and I seriously laughed until I cried. It was awesome to see all the food bloggers in action — I finally got some behind the scenes tips on how they take all their gorgeous photos (hint: it involves a selfie ring light!!).
Other notable events:
One of my favorite blogger babes, Sassy Red Lipstick, had her 25th birthday party at Sugarfina on Union Street. I had never been in the store before, and it was like heaven! It’s Instagram paradise in there, with gorgeous paper flowers on the wall and shelves and shelves of gorgeous treats! It was the perfect venue for the perfect girl — they were serving her favorite Sugar Lips gummies all night! The gift bags were provided by H20 Beauty – and I can’t wait to try out all my goodies.
On Friday, I ventured out to the East Bay to see my friend Katie and attend the Aurora Organic tans holiday party. We both got amazing spray tans! I didn’t realize how pale I was, until I saw how much better I looked with a tan. First resolution of 2017: keep up with tans!
Is anyone else obsessed with This is Us? I was sick in bed all day yesterday and binge watched 6 episodes and am now all caught up. Cried during every single one of course!
Looks like a great blogger event! I wish we had more events like this in Philly.
And yes, I’m obsessssssed with This is Us. I pretty much know that every Tuesday I’m going to be crying in bed.
