A Day In My Life: Heart Lattes & Museum Visits (iPhone Edition)

(The pictures in the post were taken with my iPhone because my camera battery was dead. I apologize for the quality and I promise the next post will have better quality photos! Hope you enjoy regardless xx)

Saturday morning my mother and I woke up early to go pick my brother up from the Philadelphia airport. Despite driving through Philly every now and then, I've never actually had the chance to explore the area. The three of us decided to go to The Franklin Institute, which is a museum close to Logan Square. The area is sublime. I can imagine myself living there when I'm older. 

As you enter the museum there's an elegant chandelier welcoming you. 

The museum is named after Benjamin Franklin, so it's expected there would be a statue of him before you make your way into the main area of the museum. 
We bought tickets for two different movies being played. One was called Kenya Animal Kingdom, which was in 3D. Now for anyone who wears glasses like I do, you'll understand why 3D is your enemy! Have you ever tried layering a pair of glasses over another pair? It's not comfortable haha! 

The other movie which was in the IMAX theater was called Born To Be Wild, which was my favorite of the two! It was about 40 minutes long and it was a very heartwarming film narrated by Morgan Freeman.  

In between the two showings we went to grab brunch. We found ourselves at Le Pain QuotidienI ordered an organic split pea soup. The smell alone made my mouth water. The moment the soup hit my taste buds, I was in in love. 

I also ordered a latte. The heart was a cute touch. 
The food was rather expensive because of all the organic products, but the meal was delicious. I was broke yet satisfied haha! 

We also came across this impressive wall. I was tempted to stop and have an impromptu photo shoot, using the wall as my background. We had to leave so I was out of luck. Next time I'm in Philadelphia I'll be sure to revisit this wall. 

To end the day we went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy. This was my second time seeing this movie, but I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. All in all, it was a delightful day.

Hope y'all have a great week! 
Bisous, Dee

  3. Museum food is always so expensive! But I guess it's worth it because all the stuff there is gorgeous...I just went to the museum a few days ago and have a photo diary post up of it too! :)
