Sisters play tourist in their own hometown - and love it

Jeta, Ebony and Onyx/a> (Left to right) Jeta, Ebony and Onyx, the very feminine brains behind the travel blog Global Lipstick and the new Web series "Trapped in Philly"[/caption] Take three world-traveling sisters and turn them loose in a city they've never visited, and you get all sorts of interesting and unusual insights on world cultures, people and places. Ebony, Onyx and Jeta have been sharing theirs with the world through their travel blog Global Lipstick for some time now. But what happens when that city they've never visited is the one they call home? The world is about to find out in an entertaining seven-part Web video series called "Trapped in Philly." As Onyx explained at a launch party for the series, many Philadelphians - themselves included - have lived here for years yet never taken the time to explore the city the way a visitor might. "We grew up in Chester County, in Coatesville, which is not too far from Philly," she said. "We've been to Philly numerous times, obviously, but we always traveled. We're avid travelers. We've been out of the country, we've been to a lot of different countries, but we never really explored Philadelphia." She and her sisters have traveled all over Europe, visited several Latin American countries and been to just about every one of the 50 states, but they never really took a good look at their own home town. So they decided they would do just that. And they discovered a fun and interesting place to visit in the process. "It was awesome. We had a great time. We were reluctant at first, which is why we called the series 'Trapped in Philly'. But it turns out that it wasn't really being trapped at all," Onyx said. In addition to exploring the usual tourist destinations, the Global Lipstick sisters go deep into the city's neighborhoods to check out places to go and things to do that locals as well as travelers enjoy. In one episode, the girls pay a call on Federal Donuts, where they discover a vegetarian making fried chicken; in another, local publicist and Philly Loves Fun blogger Kory Aversa takes them on a tour of some of his favorite haunts in Old City and Queen Village. Seven episodes in all have been produced. The first episode will debut this Thursday, June 5, on YouTube and on Global Lipstick. It's a fresh, fun and sassy take on the city, one that both outsiders and lifelong residents will appreciate. Photo by the author
