Modern Map Art was so kind to send me a Lexington map for my home. Maps never go out of style and are on trend right now, and I had already planned on getting a map at some point and framing it. About a month ago, I moved into a new home, so I figured it would be the perfect opportunity. It was fate! I knew I wanted to hang it on the wall either in my office or living room, along with my other Kentucky decor and prints.
Whew! Things have been a whirlwind lately. We bought a house and a brand new truck all within the span of two weeks. In addition to all of that, we are in the process of giving our kitchen a makeover. More to come on that later, but now, I want to tell you about this amazing foot scrub from AJ Apothecary. I promise you that you’ll want to take notice to this product. We are in the midst of flip flop weather, so let those toes free!!
If you haven’t heard of AJ Apothecary before, let me tell you about this lovely company. AJ Apothecary is located right here in the Bluegrass State, and all of the products are natural. There are products for mothers, bath time, your body, and your face. These products are all made with high quality, safe, and natural ingredients. In addition to all of that, the products are non-toxic and cruelty free. How great is that? There are also no synthetic fragrances, artificial colors, parabens, phtalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, PEG, or other harmful chemicals in any of the products.

Some people may not know this, but I wear glasses and contacts. Actually, I’ve worn glasses since the third grade and contacts since the sixth grade (I’ll be 31 years old at the end of April). My eyesight is horrible (around -9.00 in both eyes for contacts and around -10.25 and -10.50 for glasses. I always chuckle when people with something like a -3.00 say they have bad eyes. They honestly have no clue!)
Growing up, I always hated wearing glasses, because they were considered “nerdy,” and especially since mine were super thick. It didn’t matter if I paid extra to have the thinnest lenses possible, it was still noticeable. It’s actually because back when I was a child, I wasn’t told that certain frames just don’t look good with thick lenses and can actually cause distortion and even make the lenses look thicker (more on that later!). Throughout the years, people would always ask to try my glasses on, because they wanted to see what it looked like through them. Eventually, I would just roll my eyes and flat out say, no! because it’s incredibly rude.
I always thought that glasses can look so cute and be such a cool “accessory.” I hadn’t got any new glasses in about six years. I had been meaning to get a new pair, especially since I don’t want to wear my contacts all the time. I spend a lot of my time working from home teaching.
My friend, Tiffany at Bright on a Budget told me about J. Galt Eyewear (She’s also a fellow Eastern Kentuckian and we also went to college together at Pikeville College, now known as UPIKE – the University of Pikeville). She has a similar prescription and has worn glasses and contacts about the same length as me, so I figured J. Galt Eyewear would be a perfect place to go to.
Things have been crazy around here (I’ll mention more about it next week, and NO, I’m not pregnant haha!). But I do have some good news… I’m a brand ambassador for AJ Apothecary!

Today, I’ve brought to you even more awesome Kentucky gifts for that Kentuckian and/or bourbon lover in your life. Not only have I included t-shirts and sweatshirts, but I’ve included gifts that you can experience with someone, such as tickets to the Lexington Opera House. As always, all the gifts featured are local.
