Georgetown

Near the beginning of summer I went to Georgetown with my friend, Bria. She came to visit and we had a grand ole time in Georgetown. I honestly love Georgetown and if you are ever in DC you must pay a visit to Georgetown, living in a townhouse there would honestly be a dream. It's a great place to just wander around, either through shops or just exploring the neighborhood.
Anyways, I thought I would share some of our adventures from the day!


We got there around noon and decided we better eat lunch! We stumbled across this cute little place called Kafe Leopold and decided to give it a go. We split an appetizer of crostini and then we both ordered a trio of tea sandwiches for our meal.

After eating we explored the city! We started off with walking down M Street and did some browsing in all of the shops, like Paper-Source, Urban Outfitters, Madewell, Jack Wills, and of course Anthropologie and J. Crew! Neither of us bought anything but it was just fun to browse! Then we wandered down by the canal and made our way up to the neighborhood!


We stumbled across the cutest mint green moped while we were looking for a lunch place!


I of course had to take her to Georgetown Cupcakes, as she has never been before! We both got a lavender earl grey teacake and a peanut butter fudge! I had been wanting to try the lavender earl grey teacake for ages, and was super excited that I finally went in May when they had it! It was delicious and I am actually obsessed. We then went to enjoy our cakes by the canal. We both considered eating them in the shop for the sole reason that we could've taken perfect Instagram pictures on the marble tables they had in there. But in the end we decided the canal would be a more enjoyable location.


We actually spent a good amount of time wandering up and down the canal because it is so pretty!!




Can I please live here?!


Both of us were in major need of a coffee fix so we stopped by Baked & Wired to satisfy that. That was my first time at Baked & Wired, I've been dying to go. I am super pumped to go back and sample one of their cupcakes, as I've heard multiple times that they are better than Georgetown Cupcakes!


We then wandered up into the neighborhood for a bit! Um, I must live here!

So I had one small "goal" for the day and that was to get a new profile picture for Facebook, as I've had the same one for over a year. Facebook profile pictures are always a struggle as I usually hate the majority of pictures taken of me and I am not the least bit comfortable in front of a camera. But here are my favorite pictures from the little shoot.
