A Post about a Pool Party

Happy Monday everyone! So far my summer has been going so well and it’s only the beginning. I’ve already been to the beach and I’m fully enjoying the rooftops that D.C. has to offer.

Yesterday I went to this really fun pool party that was also on a rooftop….that’s like the best of both worlds for me! It was extremely hot and pretty crowded, but it was a pre 4th of July party. I wish I would have gotten more pictures of the party but I was having way too much fun.

Of course, I brought along my little red bag that my mom gave to me from her PopSugar Box (see: A post about the Beach) and my handy dandy Instax camera. I think I’ll be documenting the majority of my summer with this baby.

So the rooftop pool party was at the Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel in D.C. The event is called SiP and Dip and they have this event almost every Sunday in the summertime. I could most definitely go again to get better pictures.

The cost to get in was $20 for general admission and $200 for a table. I went with general admission since I was probably going to be in the pool the majority of the time anyway. The rail drinks were a bit expensive, but if you’re a beer drinker then it’s your lucky day.

The day was just so much fun and I think it’s really important to unwind in your life. Being by the pool and relaxing and being around friends was just so nice for a Sunday afternoon. I wanted to talk about more local things in my area especially since I’m just diving in this summer! Thanks for reading as always.

A Post About the Beach

Yesterday, I made my way to the beach, which is why I did not post. I’m here today though! I wanted to share some pictures with you guys and talk about my grand ‘ol time at Ocean City.

Now, Ocean City isn’t my first beach of choice, but that didn’t stop it from still being a beach! I LOVE the water and being near it, so I was extremely happy!

These were me and my friend’s beach “essentials” – the quotations because the Instax cameras were completely unnecessary, but made the experience that much better.

My mom got this really cool bag in her PopSugar Box and decided to lend it to me for the day. The bag is by Stephanie Johnson and apparently, she makes other really cool bags as well. The bag was perfect for the beach because it doesn’t get sandy or wet! Also, it’s super cute!

Obviously, I had to take pictures with the Instax camera, hence why I brought it along with me. I was a little nervous about the pictures developing because of how bright it was outside, but most of the pictures turned out so well!

And of course, I had to speak about my swimsuit that I got from CupShe. I ordered it last month for my Miami trip. It is a super cute swimsuit, but it does not fit in my slow fashion parameters whatsoever. The bottoms are slightly too big, however, I didn’t get in the water because it was FREEZING!

Overall, the trip was really fun and wasn’t too bad of a drive at all. I hope to go at least one more time this Summer. I’ll be sure to take even more pictures if I do go and post them on another blog post as well as my Instagram!

So yes I know that I’ve abandoned you guys once again, but I’ve been thoroughly enjoying myself in the beautiful city of Miami. I had an amazing time there, which I’m sure if you follow me on Instagram you can see for yourself. I thought I would just come on here and just briefly talk about my time in Miami along with some pictures! Read till the end if you’re participating in my giveaway.

I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures of my outfits because I spent so much time in my swimsuit either by the pool or on the beach. I think it’s safe to say that Florida has some of the best beaches, but I’m no expert of course.

When in Miami you just have to drink no matter what time it is. When it’s 10 AM the only acceptable drink to drink is a mimosa even though the price is hiked ALL the way up.

The hotel I stayed in was called the Standard and it was everything but standard. The pool is located right by the bay on Venetian Island. I’m almost embarrassed to say that I spent copious amounts of time by the pool instead of the beach.

So you guys know I’m a self-proclaimed foodie and found this place on South Beach called Naked Taco. I can honestly say…BEST. TACOS. EVER! I had the chicken and mango salsa tacos which I’m going to have to remake at home because – YES! I also couldn’t leave Miami without getting my hands on a Miami Vice (strawberry daiquiri mixed with a pina colada.)

IMG_5851On my last full day, I had breakfast by the pool and that was just amazing! This is the prettiest and tastiest Huevos Rancheros I have ever had! I’m not a huge fan of avocados, but I ate these without even thinking about it.

So I’m sure you can tell that I LOVED Miami and I will be going back at some point. I think it’s a good place to do a weekend trip with friends to just get away. I will say I am happy to be back in the D.C. area because this is home to me now.

If you’re in my giveaway or want to participate in my giveaway, remember that it ends tomorrow and the winner will be announced Monday, June 5th, 2017. Good luck!
