Located in the heart of the Bluegrass State, Lexington is known for many things — bourbon, horses and basketball being three of the main attractions — but what you may not know is that it's also home to some superb coffee shops. As both a Kentucky native and a coffee house enthusiast, allow me to present you with five coffee shops that will draw you to my fine city.

Coffee Times Coffee House

Coffee Times has been a Lexington institution since 1983. They roast their beans on-site and make the best London fog I've ever had. Additionally, Coffee Times offers locally baked goods from scones to cakes, and their quiche is incredible. And any visit to Coffee Times would be incomplete without a browse of their unique retail collection.

North Lime Coffee & Donuts

North Lime has two locations in Lexington, and both of them offer delectable varieties of doughnuts and espresso drinks. If that's not enough to grab you, Alton Brown reportedly enjoyed his selection at North Lime.

Common Grounds Coffee House

Common Grounds is a beloved spot near the University of Kentucky's campus. It's a popular spot for sipping an excellent brew and enjoying a delicious breakfast. No list of Lexington coffee shops would be complete without it.

Daily Offerings Coffee Roastery

One of the newer entries on this list, Daily Offerings, also known as the Roastery at 529, is located in downtown Lexington. Daily Offerings has incredible coffee and the tastiest gluten-free baked goods in Lexington. Also, they hold a worship service known as #LexDoCoffee.

A Cup of Common Wealth

Known for its unique pay-it-forward system, A Cup of Common Wealth is a refreshing presence on the Lexington coffee scene. Be sure to check out their seasonal specialty, Brewshine: cold-brew coffee steeped with chips from bourbon barrels. It's truly incomparable to anything else I've had the pleasure of trying.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
