Blog: Just Throw It In The Bag!

Well folks, it's mid-August! This time of the year means many things for many different people. Maybe you're gearing up for the upcoming school year; your head all full of the quadratic formula and what you'll wear on the first day. Maybe you're planning your final trip of the season; an excursion through Europe or a road trip along the east coast. Or maybe you're just planning to spend the rest of the blazing hot season in your air conditioned bedroom (which, by the way, we totally understand). Luckily, we can help you with 2 out of 3 of those possibilities! 

Whether you're a student or your loved one is, you know that a backpack is a major part of getting an education. With how heavy books are and how long students are expected to carry them, a comfortable backpack is a necessity. But we figured...why can't it be comfortable AND trendy? That's why we decided to start carrying a new brand of the most visually appealing backpacks we've seen in a long time. Check some of them out them out below! 

This bag also comes in a version that features blues and browns

These bags are super pigmented; similar bags in-store come in shades of blue

Not only are they great for school, but they're also perfect for your next backpacking adventure. In these knapsacks, you could easily carry your laptop, a couple pieces of literature, a notebook, pens, pencils, personal items, any chargers you may need, and a light change of clothes. Nothing quite like traveling light in style!

In addition, if your loved one is an athlete, you can't send them off to school without a gym bag! These extremely lightweight bags even fold up into themselves, so you can essentially carry a large gym bag in your backpack and have it take up a tiny amount of space. 

Stop in to Hello World before you set out on your next adventure! Or if you need some time away from your television and A/C.

Believe it or not, before I started working at Hello World, I didn't give a second thought to the idea of planters. I've always just assumed you dug your hole and the plant went into the ground and you cared for it accordingly. Similarly, I thought if a plant came in a pot...that's how it would and should stay. But I've seen the error of my ways!

Now I know that just like you may deserve a new pair of pants, your plant deserves a new pot! And planting can be even more fun with a super cute planter to put your earth babies in. Check out what we have in store below:

Let us help you get your indoor or outdoor gardening on!

Blog: Beach Day? In The Bag!

Blog: Beach Day? In The Bag!

A few months ago, my blog posts spoke heavily about getting ready for and anticipating the warm weather. Hopefully you took it seriously, because the warm weather is here! Today's high in Philadelphia is 86 degrees. Eighty-six! 

What that means is it's beach weather. It's time to grab your sunscreen, towels, portable phone charger, Wawa hoagie, and a flask that's totally not filled with anything they don't allow at the beach and head down the shore. Once you've got all the essentials, you'll need somewhere to put it all! 

As per usual, Hello World has got you covered. You may or may not know that we have a sale going on right now. If you frequent this blog, the store, or our Instagram account, you're already hip to that! 

Obviously, this is great news. The even better news? ALL of our beach bags are 50% off! Take a look at what we've got in store for you:

They're all so cute AND convenient! Pop on in during our sale to check them out.

As I type this, I realize there could not have been a better day to get a shipment of sunglasses in here at Hello World. The sun is shining, the trees are all in bloom, and everyone in Philadelphia is experiencing only a slight windburn. The combination of sun and wind, however, does allow us to get excited for the warm weather that is to come!

 

Sure, we've had sunglasses in the past. But these are special...because they're so, so cute. Whether you're someone that likes the most on trend glasses, someone who loves to add their color pop with their shades, or someone that stays faithful to a classic wayfarer, we've got them all here for you. 

 

Check them out in their unnatural habitat: 

(Their natural habitat is your face, btw)

Come on in and try on a pair! Or two...or three? As you can see here, I got a bit too excited:

Blog: Hello Spring!

Hey all you Hello World shoppers! Long time no blog!

A few years ago, you were all treated to the delightful blogging of Hannah Cooley. Hannah has since moved on and now I, Sabrina Iglesias, will be regularly blogging from the Hello World account. 

Now let's move forward...spring has sprung! Or at least, it's trying to. We've had a few days of warmth, a few days of cold, and even some snow. If you're from the Philadelphia area, you know how typical that is for us. That being said, a bit of snow doesn't mean that you can't be in the spring spirit! 

We all know what the spring spirit is, right? Pastels, florals, hats, umbrellas, cross-body bags...good news is that we've got all of those things here at Hello World. Right now, though, I'd like to focus on one of our most popular items: the spring scarf

Let us take a look at just a few of the super cute spring scarves we have in the store:

                     Looking for a scarf with an animal on it? We've got you. What about a scarf that reminds you of a dreary spring day in England? Check that scarf with the sheep on it. A simple floral that will go with any outfit? We couldn't let you down like that! We've got plenty. 

Stop on in and grab the scarf that fits your personality. Oh, and one last thing, they start at the killer price of $19.00
