What are some of your favorite summer activities?

Karissa: This summer has definitely been different with Charlie around. Honestly, not doing many activities besides walks around the neighborhood and trips to Target/the mall. Normally, I love getting out and kayaking or spending time on patios with a drink or two!


Sam: If I was a more fun twenty year old I would be downtown much more at all the beautiful rooftop bars but it is tough for us to go downtown on a weekend after doing adult activities like yardwork all Saturday. We love to rollerblade our neighborhood after dinner or spend the weekend boating on one of the smaller lakes in northern Columbus area or kayak one of the rivers in Hocking Hills. We have tried several paddle board places around Columbus as well but our favorite was Project 908 and kayaking Scioto by the Columbus Zoo. 


Best hiking spots in columbus? Looking to find somewhere to walk my dog that is more fun than a paved trail. 

Sam: My favorite dog friendly place is Hoover Reservoir;  not the main paved paths but all the woodland paths that break off the frisbee golf trail and go down to the water north of the dam. I also love Highbanks, but the dog friendly trails are not that good for hiking. Another small place that is great and dog friendly is Char Mar nature preserve in Sunbury area. 


Karissa: Honestly, I'm not much of a hiker. But, I second all the places Sam mentioned! Hoover and Char Mar are my favorites!


Amazon seems to be trending for clothing purchases, what are some quality items you have bought from Amazon and loved?

Sam: The above pictured dress has been by far my best Amazon buy and I'm sure you are all sick of seeing it by now but I can't stop wearing it. The trick for buying on Amazon is finding clothing you have already seen on another person, whether a fellow blogger or an amazon fashion specialist like @colettaprime. The dress I love above looks completely different online than in person but I saw this on another blogger's Amazon haul. 


Karissa: I haven't purchased many clothing items from Amazon because I'm super picky about the way things fit and usually Amazon reviews are alllll over the map. I do own and love these leggings- they're true to size!
