My Friday Favs: 1st Edition

Goooood morning, guys! I thought this morning I would do something a little different and start a fun post that will go up weekly! I’m calling it My Friday Favs BUT am open to other suggestions! Basically, I want it to be a quick read about some of my favorite/ most exciting things from each week or just life in general. It’ll rotate and be slightly different from week to week but will include some good stuff! So.. HERE. WE. GO! 1. Fav thing I’ve done recently This last year has been my year of tennis. This August marks one year of playing tennis and my only regret is that I didn’t start playing it sooner! Nevertheless, I have been to tennis tournaments in the past, but I wasn’t playing tennis then so they were fun but just an activity and that’s about it. SO, when the Western and Southern…

Reservation Destination: Fork & Barrel, Louisville, Kentucky, USA

Hey, you guys! Wanted to get this post up before I head to Napa this weekend to spend time with the fam! This was a really exciting post to write (& a little different than I’ve done before) so I hope you guys enjoy it! And I hope everyone is having a killer week! It’s almost FRIYAY! I’m what you would probably call a novice foodie. I’d like to consider myself a true foodie (I’ll get there eventually I think! ? ), but I’m not the best at explaining why certain foods are so good. I pretty much am like.. YES THIS IS GOOD! ? Or, I’m more like.. Ehh I’ve had better ? But I do absolutely love trying new restaurants and foods. In fact it’s one of my favorite things to do. I think it’s such a fun experience all the way around- from the ambiance to the decor…

The Best Carry On Bags for Traveling

Goooood afternoon, guys! Ok, I am slightly obsessed with bags (any bags at all, I don’t discriminate). Therefore it can sometimes be difficult to actually pick which carry on to take with me when I’m flying. With SO many options of bags out there, it can be overwhelming to narrow down and choose a good one. There are three things I typically look for in a good carry on bag (please note: these are requirements for me when choosing a carry on when I’m also checking a suitcase; if I’m only taking a carry on with me, then the bag and the packing list would be much different): Does it zip all the way closed? This is a MUST for me when choosing a carry on bag because I can’t be worrying about things falling out and rolling around the plane during flight. PLUS, let’s not forget about pick pockets!…

9 Reasons You Should Definitely Not Play Tennis

1. It will affect your stress level Does adulting have you stressed out? Tennis is a great outlet for stress, agitation, or any pent up energy. Running around, being active, laughing and hitting the crap out of some balls is sure to be a cure. You’re sold already, aren’t you? Never underestimate the power of physical activity for decreasing stress, increasing your mood and causing you to be HAPPY! 2. It will force you to meet new people and make new friends If you don’t want friends and connections, then stay away from tennis. Through tennis, you will be introduced to so many new people, who you may have otherwise not met, leading to new friendships and relationships. And, I’m pretty sure that us humans, as social beings, gain satisfaction and fulfillment from our relationships, which in turn leads to happiness. Seeing a trend here, yet?? 3. It will have…
