Fall Staples at Zappos.com

Fall Staples

Sponsored by Zappos. Y’all, it’s officially fall! Also known as my favorite time of the year. Even though the weather may not feel like it at the moment. But as the weather continues to cool down the first the things I reach for in my closet are jeans and flannels. It’s essentially my tried and true fall outfit of choice. Because as much as I love shorts I’m more than happy to break out my AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans once the weather officially cools down. Recently I stocked up on some new gear from Zappos just in time in the cooler weather that’s to come, including these new jeans. And it’s safe to say that I’m looking forward to tackling the coming season in these guys. They’re the perfect wash to wear with just about everything from flannels, like today, to something a little dressier. And this new t-shirt from AG Adriano Goldschmied will be the perfect layering piece for under all my favorite shirts this fall. Now what are you waiting for? Make your way over to Zappos.com to start shopping and get ready for the cooler weather that’s headed your way soon.

McAlisters Game Day Entertaining Spread

Game Day Entertaining

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by McAlisters Deli + The Blog Societies, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Well, I’ve been on the road quite a bit lately, and it’s actually about to get a lot more crazy. I’ll be traveling to Tennessee, Virginia, and the Dominican Republic over the next couple of weeks. Travel is definitely a perk of the job, but it can be draining. At least my trip to the Dominican is going to be an actual vacation. My first vacation in years. Color me excited! But when I am home, which is usually the weekends, I spend as much time with my friends as possible. Meaning that this time of year we’re either watching a game at someone’s place or a favorite bar. For those days that we actually make it down to the field my new apartment is the perfect rendezvous point as I’m the closest to campus. We all know that I love to cook. But with my limited time at home lately the last thing I want to be doing is cooking. Enter McAlisters. They’re the perfect solution for quick and easy game day entertaining without sacrificing any…

Where To Eat in Louisville: Levee at the River House

Louisville Eats: Levee

 Well, we had brief (very brief) fall like weather for a minute, and I was incredibly excited about it. We’re back in the 80’s and 90’s this week and for the foreseeable future. So while I’m a tad bummed that my flannels will have to stay in my closet for a bit longer that is a bright side. That means that patio season is here to stay for a while longer. And if you know me at all, you know that my friends and I are taking full advantage of this.  Our latest favorite haunt? Levee at the River House. They are situated perfectly on the Ohio River with a massive outdoor patio and killer view. Not to mention out of this world weekly specials on both delicious food AND stiff drinks. Like $5 flatbreads and $4 well drinks on Thursdays or $4 individuals sliders and tacos with draft beer specials on Sundays. What’s not to love? The sangria is also to die for (see some snaps below), and it pairs perfectly with their fresh oysters.  And if the food and drink specials weren’t enough to convince you they’re also home to some of the best live music in town…

3 Tips for Dating Post Breakup

3 Tips for Dating Post Breakup

I’m participating in the #SchickTransformation campaign, sponsored by Schick Hydro® at Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own. Well, I’m officially almost 2 months single. Most of that time has been spent settling into my new home, focusing on healing, and spending time with friends. I’ve been on a few dates over the last few weeks, but my heart isn’t really in it, yet. At first I beat myself up about that, but over time I’m realizing that’s ok. It’s ok to take my time. Taking my time to focus on rebuilding the parts of me my last relationship tore apart. If you find yourself in the same boat, it’s also ok to take your time. Take as much time as you need and/or want. Healing and focusing on self-love is paramount at this junction, and I think a lot of people forget that post-breakup. When you are ready to get back into dating those months/weeks of self-love will be worth it. They’ll allow you to refocus on what’s important to you. Meaning that you’ll be the best possible version of yourself for the next person you date. Which is why I’m teaming up with Schick Hydro to share…
