Get Fit(ted) with Fleet Feet Sports!

For me, getting to the gym is always a process. Usually, it goes something like:

Step 1. Thinking about going to the gym.

Step 2. Remembering that Jennifer Lawrence quote about how she prefers the couch to a workout.



Step 3. Remembering that I am neither Jennifer Lawrence's age nor blessed with her build.

Step 4. Putting together workout clothes at the last minute.

Step 5. Pulling and tugging at ill-fitting leggings and jog bras the entire time I'm on the treadmill.




Now, there's probably not a lot I can do about the whole "not being J-Law" thing. The old sports bras, however, I can (and probably need to) change. And, right here in Louisville, there's something I can do about it this weekend.

All day (10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.) Saturday February 15, Fleet Feet Sports is hosting a Valentine's Day Bra Fit Fest. They're offering bra fittings and apparel specials along with champagne and chocolates!


If you bring in a gently used bra to donate to Free The Girls: Fight Human Trafficking and receive 20% off a new bra. You can learn more about the Bra Fit Fest on its Facebook event page.

The HerKentucky Valentine's Day Wish List

Valentine's Day is tomorrow, and we've been shopping a lot! This week, we've given you our Valentine's Day Wish Lists for guys and for t-shirt lovers. Today, here are a few great, Kentucky-made pieces for the woman on your shopping list, or some great ways to treat yourself!

W & M Custom Jewelry Silver Tulip Earrings

I went out to dinner with a dear friend the other night, and I found myself looking at her earrings repeatedly. Finally, I just came out with "Those are W & M, right?"  Well, of course they were! These delicate silver flowers go with anything, and make a great gift!


Louisville Stoneware Garden Boot Birdhouse
This gorgeous piece combines so many of my very favorite things: Wellies, Louisville Stoneware, and Kentucky-based celebrity gardener Jon Carloftis. It would be a fantastic keepsake for a Stoneware collector or garden lover!

Elva Fields Luck Abounds Necklace

I just cannot stop staring at this necklace. How perfect is it for a day at the track, a Derby party or, you know, anywhere?  Another thoughtfully-constructed, vintage-inspired piece from Kentucky's own Elva Fields jewelry.

A Bourbon Women Membership

If you really love her, say it with bourbon. Membership in the Bourbon Women association is a great opportunity for professional networking, and a unique chance to learn all about Kentucky's signature spirit.

Kentucky Cutting Board


This cutting board from Two Chicks & Co is a great way to display your Bluegrass pride! Wouldn't this make the most darling cheese tray ever?

This is the week of HerKentucky Valentine's Day wish lists. Monday, we showed you a few items the guy on your list is sure to love. Tomorrow, we'll share our top pics for women. Today's list previews gifts any Kentuckian is sure to love: t-shirts.  I mean, who doesn't love t-shirts? You can wear them. You can sleep in 'em. You can even make a quilt out of them. Here are a few great ones that proudly display your love of the Commonwealth.

Louisville Love Letter from Why Louisville

"Dear Louisville, I Love You."  Perfect. Available at whylouisville.com or at the Why Louisville stores.


Y'ALL from Kentucky for Kentucky

Great for all of us who can't even try to disguise our accents. Available at Kentucky for Kentucky.


"I Wanna Go Home" from Sundy Best
My hometown's favorite band. This shirt is awesome, even if you haven't yet fallen in love with Sundy Best's down-home rock.


The Crafty Tee from River City Craft Wear

What a great nod to local craft beers! Get it here.


Welcome to Lex Vegas from Etsy Seller Bifftees
I think there's an argument to be made that what happens in Lex Vegas definitely doesn't stay in Lex Vegas. Still, this t-shirt is great.


Keeneland Dress Code from Southern Proper 

I love these! The perennial prep retailer Southern Proper has teamed with the Keeneland Gift Shop for these adorable shirts that bring you his and her "Dress Codes" for the track.
