Geo’s Table is committed to uplifting and supporting others as they bring to life their passions. Table Talks will be a regular feature that highlights a creative, entrepreneur or mover-and-shaker who is making an impact in the Philadelphia community (and beyond), with hopes of connecting them to others who can help push their vision forward.
ABOUT E.M. RICCHINI
Fashion and lifestyle blogger at larkandlace.com, freelance writer and on-air personality at MyNewPhilly.com, the lovely E.M. Ricchini is a born-and-raised Philly girl who is making a quite the unique and positive impression on the community.
When I met E.M. Ricchini at a recent tasting event, I was instantly drawn to her cool and coy demeanor and impeccable sense of style. Her natural knack for giving urban street style a flawlessly modern upgrade fueled me to strike up an initial conversation, which ended in an invite out for drinks a few weeks later.
As a creative E.M. has navigated the media world with curiosity ; first attending art school, and going on to work for heavy hitters like Fox 29 and Philly Voice. Through trials and tribulations, and with an eagerness for adventure, she’s continued to land on her feet.
All of which made for a very dynamic and fulfilling conversation.
The Setting: Los Cantinas Dos Segundos, 2nd Street | Prickly Pear Margaritas (Virgin for her)
Topic 1: Iceland – The beauty of Iceland, and her privately chic (and epic) wedding ceremony on the shores of Reynisfjara.
Topic 2: Blogging Philosophy – Her blogging philosophy is simple she likes her writing to “come naturally and treats [her] blog as a journal…”
Topic 3: The Vegan Life – Leading a straight edge and vegan life, E.M. is able to add veganistic flare to many classic dishes. One of her favorite dishes includes a recipe for black bean brownies that she promises are to die for (and I believe her!)

E.M. plans to continue evolving as a writer and is open to freelance opportunities. She is also in charge of brand management and creative direction for one of Philly’s hottest new startups, GoBabl. The imprint she’s made on the Philadelphia community is apparent, and as she continues sharing her art and thoughts with the world her following will surely continue to grow.
Both being avid supporters of Philly’s ever expanding blogging community, this was a meeting of the minds that ended in great success! We ended with the promise of a collaboration that will grace our blogs soon!
