Welcome to Fabulous in Fayette!

Welcome to my blog, Fabulous in Fayette! For those who don’t know (which I’m sure most of you do, if you are reading this), it refers to the county that Lexington, Kentucky is located in.

My name is Whitney, and I originally grew up in Appalachia, but I moved to Lexington in 2008 after I graduated from college. I’ve always wanted to move to Lexington, and also enjoyed spending time here, so I became a permanent resident. I love seeing how Lexington has grown and expanded, and essentially exploded with so many local businesses and so many events for everyone to take part in.

I used to blog consistently for about six years, but about a year and a half ago, I just stopped. If you had asked me when I started all of those years ago, if I would always be blogging, the answer would be yes. That wasn’t the case though. However, over a year ago, I became interested and inspired by all of the new restaurants and local businesses popping up. I wanted to be involved with it all and fully immerse myself into Lexington, since it was ever changing, instead of staying back in my comfort zone and what I had always known.

I had been planning on starting this blog for quite some time, but it was just more of a fleeting idea than a full-fledged plan. I have so many friends that are always asking me how I find out about events, restaurants, grand openings, etc, and I see some people out there complaining how there is nothing to do (It is actually the exact opposite!), so I figured that I would share the fabulousness that Lexington has to offer.

    What a great idea for a blog! I’ve only been to Lexington once and it was super cool!

      Thanks so much!! I love it here! It definitely has changed over the past years, but for the better! Lexington has so much to offer, and not to mention to see and to do.

      Thanks so much! It feels good to be back!! I had my old blog for six years, but shut it down completely 1.5 years ago, because I didn’t want to do it anymore.

      I love it here too! It has changed so much over the past four years, and I can’t wait to see the changes that happen in the future. It’s become a real foodie city, which I love, because I love food haha!

    Great blog concept, I love how you’re focusing local! People always complain where I live too. But we also have a lot going on no one seems to know about! Looking forward to reading more! XOXO

      Thanks so much!! I hate seeing people complain (but then again, for some people that’s just their thing!) There’s so much to do that it would be impossible to do it all. You just gotta get out there and explore and be social on social media (which is where I find just about everything out!)
