Happy Galentine’s Day!


Back again, bby dollz! More love to share with y’all on this beautiful Valentines’ Day.

As a Kentucky blogger (more specifically, a Frankfort blogger) I really wanted to start highlighting some places around the Bluegrass that get a good deal of local love.

Kicking off this series with a feature from the cutest coffee club- The Amsden. The Amsden is actually one of the oldest buildings in downtown Versailles. Inside its beautifully restored walls, one can enjoy The Amsden Coffee Club, Gathered Mercantile, The Yoga Room, and the Amsden Bourbon Bar


This past weekend, my bestie girl, Savanna (check her out!) and I enjoyed the cutest Sunday at The Amsden’s Galentine’s Day Sip + Shop Event. Let me tell ya all about it.


But first, coffee! Or in my case, Valentine’s Hot Chocolate. My mouth is watering just thinking about this creamy goodness, complete with heart-shaped ‘mallows on top…ohmuhgawd! They also had a “Love You Latte” option, which looked equally as good. But ya girl is a child, so with the hot coco I went! AND the most delicious heart shaped donuts, but sometimes things just don’t last long enough for a photo op, y’know?! (*insert piggy emoji*)


After we got our drinks (and pics of our drinks, obviously) it was time to get in line for the Braid Bar! I have a low-key obsession with braids so once I sat down I basically gave her free reign and she gave me the most gorgeous fishtail!  If you weren’t in the mood to have your hair played with, they also had the most stunning MUA hosting a Makeup Bar! (pretty cute, right?!)


After our braids were beautifully set in place, we decided to check out the photo booth upstairs. Casey & Sara Pictures had the most adorable set up for the photo booth! Keep an eye on my Instagram, because those will be up soon! She was seriously so much fun to shoot with and even allowed Sav and I to sneak in a few of our own ideas. Down from the photo booth, you could also partake in a little yoga sesh before mixing and mingling downstairs.

After we harassed the photog for as many pics as we could squeeze out of her, we headed back downstairs to the merchant shop to look around. The Amsden is a true Kentucky gem, as its not only locally owned, but it also showcases local merchants, artists, candle makers, etc. Which means anything you buy from there will be lovingly made by a Kentuckian and will also be super original.

 Along with the very V-day inspired treats, the fun beauty bar, and photo booth- The Amsden also houses such a cute Bourbon Bar which also offered Valentine’s inspired cocktails. Yum! They truly thought of everything a girl could want in one day, y’all.

If you ever find yourself in Versailles, make sure you stop by and grab a coffee and look around a bit! And follow the Amsden on social to keep up with all of their cutie events!

 Talks soon babes
