A Quick Getaway: Washington, DC

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates, I try to update 4 or 5 times a week but since college is starting back up soon I've been busy getting ready for it. As for the quick getaway, one of my other hobbies besides makeup and fashion is traveling! I defiantly have wanderlust and I think it's thrilling to visit new places and see with your own eyes what the world has to offer. My friend and I decided to go on a road trip to DC on Sunday and we were out on the road by Monday. We both didn't go on vacation or do anything too exciting this summer so we thought it would be a nice way to end the summer and do something adventurous before we both head back to school. Plus this trip gave me a chance to use my camera and look like an official tourist haha.


The road trip was about 6-7 hours long from where I live and I gotta say, I'm so tired of driving! It was defiantly worth it so I'm not complaining, DC has some beautiful historic sites and at least I can cross it off the places that I wanted to visit. We drove through Pennsylvania and Maryland to get there and there was some great scenic routes that we passed by, making the long trip a lot more interesting.



We visited all the typical tourist spots like the Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol building, and the Washington monument and I gotta say although it was incredible to visit, the places were so crowded and parking was SO HARD TO FIND. I've been in a lot of tourist places before where traffic and parking is overwhelming, but this was the worst yet! I think the best part of the trip was visiting the White House, I was in complete awe because it's such an iconic place and even though you see it on tv all the time, it's different when you see it in person. I highly recommend everyone to go visit DC at least once in their lives! 

After sightseeing, we strolled through downtown DC (where people drive like maniacs and break every single road rule ever created!) and then later after some lunch at Shake Shack where the burgers were HEAVEN, we decided to go to Tyson's Corner mall for some much-needed shopping. What I love about DC is that it's right in between Virginia and Maryland so there are tons of places to visit after all the sight-seeing. Tyson's Corner is in Virgina and they have almost every store that you can think of and only 15 minutes away from DC so it's defiantly worth a look! Unfortunately, I didn't buy any makeup since we spent so much time trying on clothes and visiting different stores but I do have my eye on a few new things and will hopefully be reviewing them soon!

Overall, it was an amazing trip and made the summer a bit more memorable so my wanderlust cravings for now are satisfied. I think the worst part of every trip is knowing that it has to end soon and you have to go back to reality...oh well. Is anyone actually looking forward to going back to school? Haha.The only question I'm asking myself now is "Where should I go to next?"


Until next time lovelies,
