5 Of The Best Coffee Shops In Louisville, Kentucky
Shelby Arnett

Over the past few years, my love for iced coffee has increasingly grown. I would now call myself a coffee fanatic, but I embrace the name with pride due to the belief that each cup of coffee you have should taste like the best one yet. Though Starbucks is always a reliant coffee franchise to visit, I have expanded my coffee shop experiences since the moment I could drive. Each coffee shop I've stepped into has carried its own unique atmosphere, as well as incredible coffee to go along with it. I even carve time out of my daily schedule just to get a daily dose of lattes in my system. It makes me feel good and ready to take on the day, but even more so, it tastes even better. If you've found yourself stuck on where to find some of the best coffee in Louisville, Kentucky, you've come to the right spot.

Safai Coffee

Shelby Arnett

Safai, located on Bardstown Road in the Highlands, is as well known for its coffee as its crepes. The perfect mix of sweet and savory, Safai offers a plethora of local coffee and espresso drinks, as well as soda drinks, such as Purple Rain. Safai is by far my favorite coffee shop in Louisville, and they even have a "pet" squirrel that they feed right outside the window!

Please & Thank You

Shelby Arnett

Please & Thank You is not only a local coffee shop, but it also serves as a bakery with its warm -- and lightly salted -- chocolate chip cookies. All of the Please & Thank You locations are well known for is old-fashioned juke boxes or turntables that play a range of tunes to fit your liking.

Heine Brothers' Coffee

Shelby Arnett

I wish I had started drinking Heine Brothers' coffee much earlier than I did, because their organic and fair trade coffee is to die for! The coffee shop is a Louisville original, and they offer both paper and plastic straws (save the sea turtles!) to accommodate all of their customers and promote a healthy environment. Heine Brothers' is well known for its dedication to fair trade and treating others with dignity and respect, making for an overall positive atmosphere.

Sunergos Coffee

Shelby Arnett

I just recently tried an iced latte from Sunergos, and I was thoroughly fulfilled with the mix of sweetness and coffee. There are multiple locations throughout the Louisville area, each one varying in its structure and seating arrangements. Their original location on Preston Street even keeps up with its training lab where baristas receive their training!

Quills Coffee

Shelby Arnett

Quills serves freshly brewed coffee on a weekly basis and even ships bags of coffee to your home! Coffee enthusiasts from Louisville and Indianapolis, and even people across the country, enjoy the goodness of Quills coffee and espresso.

My discovery of these coffee shops in Louisville has exposed me to a range of different areas that I have never seen before. I find myself making the trip across town just for an iced vanilla latte. Each of the coffee shops listed above has a specific mission, and that is to serve its customers well while roasting the best coffee possible. Whether you love coffee or despise it, I highly suggest you check these places just for the experience, or even if you're craving a sweet treat (like a crepe or chocolate cookie!). You may surprise yourself in your discovery. Enjoy the coffee journey!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.
