Fabulous In Fayette Turns Four!

May 26, 2020

May 16, 2020 marked four years since I launched Fabulous in Fayette! It seriously feels like yesterday I began this site to pay tribute to all the things I love in Lexington and Kentucky. I want to thank everyone who follows me and that enjoys my content. Every like, share, or comment really means a lot! Like I mentioned in previous blogaversary posts (by the way, I hate that word, but that’s what ‘they’ call it), I’m no stranger to blogging. Fabulous In Fayette may have just turned four, but I’ve been blogging for eleven years. When starting Fabulous In…

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With Beef Taco Bowls and Strawberry Margaritas

May 5, 2020

Since it’s Cinco de Mayo, and also Taco Tuesday, I figured I would share one of my favorite Mexican recipes that I make at home. My husband and I actually are going to have it again tonight. This is probably one of my top five favorite dishes that we have for dinner. I’m a huge fan of rice. Some people may think rice is boring, but it doesn’t have to be!

When it comes to cooking, I much prefer making my own sauces from scratch, instead of buying a jar from the grocery store shelves. Obviously, buying a jar will be a time saver compared to making your sauce. However, making your own sauce is so much…

12 Ways to Support Local Businesses During the Coronavirus Pandemic

April 15, 2020

I never planned going as long as I have before writing a new post. Time got away from me. I usually do “Things to Do in Lexington, Kentucky: The Week Of…” on Thursdays, but as this pandemic was escalating, I realized there was no way I could keep up with what businesses were open and which weren’t. As we all know in the weeks following, businesses began to temporarily close. When logging into WordPress to write this post, I was shocked to see that I hadn’t posted anything since mid-February. I actually had quite a few posts planned (plus, some…

In 2008, I left my life in Appalachia behind, and have been living in Lexington ever since. I'm a Proud Kentuckian and am in love with my city of Lexington.
