RAHEL SOLOMON

Rahel Solomon, who grew up in West Phil­a­del­phia and Up­per Darby, as­sumed coan­chor­ing du­ties this year at CBS3’S Eye­wit­ness News This Morn­ing and Eye­wit­ness News at Noon. Not bad for some­one who started in the biz only six years ago as a pro­duc­tion as­sis­tant for NBC10. Solomon moved to the United States from the Su­dan with her fam­ily when she was 3 years old. The Arch­bishop Pren­der­gast High alum, who edited the school’s news­pa­per in Drexel Hill, got a fi­nance de­gree from St. John’s Univer­sity be­fore switch­ing her ca­reer track to jour­nal­ism. Af­ter earn­ing a mas­ter’s de­gree from North­west­ern’s world­class pro­gram, Solomon learned the ropes in Charleston, South Carolina; West Vir­ginia; and Den­ver be­fore re­turn­ing to her home­town. Her week­days be­gin at 1am to be ready for her 4:30am broad­cast. Rise and shine in­deed. 1 “Kenra Vol­ume Spray is my go-to at work.” $18, ULTA BEAUTY, 1619 WAL­NUT ST.; CHLOE.COM 2 “I use Der­ma­log­ica Daily Su­per­fo­liant. The ex­fo­lia­tor is in a pow­der form, so the bot­tle lasts years. I use this with my Clar­isonic brush, and it gives my skin a nice glow.” $58, BLUEMERCURY, 1707 WAL­NUT ST., BLUEMERCURY.COM 3 “The folks at Phil­a­del­phia Run­ner helped me find the New Bal­ance 860V7 Re­flec­tion with Poi­son­berry & Pig­ment. There’s great sup­port, so I’m pro­tected when I’m run­ning, and I also love the col­ors.” $124.99, 1601 SANSOM ST., PHILADELPHIARUNNER.COM 4 “I stud­ied abroad with a class­mate who wore Chloé re­li­giously, so the scent re­minds me of France to this day.” 4.2 FL.

ELLYN GOLDER SAFT

Bub­bly, fun, friendly fash­ion jour­nal­ist Ellyn Golder Saft is pas­sion­ate about clothes and takes de­light in dis­pens­ing her wis­dom and tips on how we can all look bet­ter and have fun do­ing it. Dig into Saft’s Fash­ion at 50-ish blog, her ar­ti­cles or syn­di­cated col­umns (in In­side, the Jew­ish Ex­po­nent or Main Line Life/main Line Times and 38 more area week­lies) for her prac­ti­cal tips on how to make sense of all the trends—and learn to “al­ways throw on more jew­elry,” she says. 1 “One of my fa­vorite face serums is Lan­come’s Advanced Genifique—i use face cream over the serum for smooth, glow­ing skin un­der my foun­da­tion.” 1 FL. OZ. FOR $78, MACY’S, 1300 MAR­KET ST.; LAN­COME- USA.COM 2 “First coat: Essie’s Bal­let Slip­pers; sec­ond coat: Essie’s Muchi, Muchi; then a third coat of Bal­let Slip­pers. It’s like a nail-pol­ish sand­wich!” $9, ULTA BEAUTY, 1619 WAL­NUT ST.; ESSIE.COM 3 “I am not a gym girl. I ex­er­cise with Mary He­len Bow­ers’ Bal­let Beau­ti­ful DVDS or stream them on­line.” BALLETBEAUTIFUL.COM 4 “I’m to­tally ad­dicted to Laura Mercier’s Crème Brûlée Crème Body Wash. It elim­i­nates that ‘tight’ feel­ing when your skin is dry. The spicy smell gen­er­ates loads of com­pli­ments.”

BRAN­DON M. MOR­RI­SON Bran­don M. Mor­ri­son, the chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer with Cen­ter City’s PRDC Prop­er­ties, is com­mit­ted to change. He de­scribes his com­pany’s mis­sion as striv­ing to “pre­serve, re­store and trans­form un­der­uti­lized (and of­ten his­toric) real es­tate into vi­brant res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial com­mu­ni­ties that sup­port the sus­tain­abil­ity of broader com­mu­ni­ties.” When he’s not at the of­fice, the Philly­based busi­ness­man serves on the Anti-defama­tion League’s ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee and co-chaired the WALK Against Hate for the last four years. He also sits on the board of Girls, Inc.—a non­profit pro­mot­ing girl power through ser­vice and ad­vo­cacy—and serves as a men­tor with Phil­a­del­phia Fu­tures. 1 “My kitchen is al­ways stocked with Maranatha al­mond but­ter. I main­tain a dis­ci­plined nu­tri­tional plan of qual­ity foods con­sumed across core macronu­tri­ents—pro­teins, fats and com­plex car­bo­hy­drates.” $7.29, WHOLE FOODS, 929 SOUTH ST., WHOLEFOODS.COM 2 “Tom Ford’s To­bacco Vanille cologne is the scent that fits my chem­istry just right—not too bold nor too sub­tle.” 1.7 FL. OZ. FOR $230, NEIMAN MAR­CUS, KING OF PRUS­SIA MALL; TOMFORD.COM 3 “Reuzel Po­made is a trust­wor­thy prod­uct that holds my hair in place from dawn to dusk and gives it a fin­ish­ing shine. It smells good, too.” FROM $7, REUZELPOMADE.COM 4 “When it’s time to recharge, I go for a whole-body cryother­apy ses­sion at Or­ange Cryo Well­ness.”

Af­ter work, CBS3‘S Rahel Solomon hits the ground run­ning to train for fall’s top marathons in Phil­a­del­phia.
