You know how your hometown has that one historic hotel that your parents tell you stories about every time you pass by? That's the Peabody. It's a beautiful and historic hotel in downtown Memphis. It has been a landmark in the Memphis community for a very long time and continues to be a centerpiece of the city.
Marriott is my jam. Their properties don't try to be anything they're not. Courtyard, Fairfield, Spring Hill, town place. And residence inn all have great identities and are fantastic values. If you're a hotel point addict, only make Marriott your brand if you can save up for a "fly and stay" deal. Look it up.
My mom used to stay at Sofitel when she was working for the UN. The one in DC is one of the nicer hotels I've ever stayed in. SUCH good food (breakfast is unreal), amazing beds, great service and usually a great location. If you can afford it, it's worth the price tag.
Let me start by saying I'm not a vodka drinker. I really don't love the stuff. That being said, Tito's is the only kind I'll drink anymore. Smooth, easy, just like a good vodka should be. If you're a heathen who drinks the grain...go Tito's.
H&M is the best fashion forward and affordable clothing store out there. If you're looking for form-fitting, modern cut, affordable clothes, this is the spot. I am particularly fond of the swim trunks, t-shirts, and shoes here. Give it a shot.
Pure leaf unsweetened is my go to - gas station or convenience store - iced tea buy. It's really hard to find unsweetened iced tea on the road and this one is my savior. Great flavor, great packaging, it has it all.
Sam Smith's Nut Brown ale is an absolute delight. All of their beers are beautiful to look at and nicely packaged. This one in particular has a nice deep, dark, almost creamy taste to it. It's a great beer for sipping or having with a meal. It will hold up to big flavors like steak, or stand alone as a centerpiece drink.
No sponge that I have ever used matches Scotch-Brite in cleaning ability and overall quality. They just seemed to be made of better materials. The yellow side is soft enough for any surface and the green side is tough enough for any cleaning project.
Swiffer wet mopping cloths have been an incredible find as someone with a hardwood (or laminate) floor. Buying the pads is a bit pricey, but the convenience is worth it. They clean extremely well, they smell great, and when you're done you just throw it away! No wet mop to dry and let mold, just a trashed pad!
