A Trip to Georgetown & Dry Bar Love

Recently, my boyfriend and I took a trip to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The trees were not all in bloom, but the ones that were, were gorgeous! Of course, we can't visit DC without stopping into Georgetown for lunch and shopping. Our first stop was the Old Glory BBQ restaurant off of M Street. They have delicious "All-American" food, not to mention the best corn muffins you'll ever taste. Obviously, the next adventure was shopping, or in my case, "window shopping". Georgetown is a mostly high-end shopping district...be prepared to bring lots of money if you intend on buying anything. If you know me, you know what happened next....guilty! I practically ran to Sprinkles Cupcakes and enjoyed every last minute of my milk chocolate cupcake. I know Georgetown is famous for Georgetown Cupcakes, however, Sprinkles is better (Shh)....and there aren't any lines! After a long day, I made my boyfriend walk 20 minutes up a hill on what happened to be the hottest day in April...just so I could experience the Dry Bar....what a brat! (I fed him don't worry!) Let's just say, the walk was defiantly worth it! I have seriously contemplated driving 40 minutes every day just to receive the dry bar experience. First off, the salon itself is to die for, the buttercup yellow and grey theme is so chic. One of the walls is covered in a tufted fabric wall, while on the other side there is a framed chalkboard menu of all the different blowouts. The concept of a salon with just blowouts is genius and the slogan..peace.love and blowouts..I mean it just really couldn't be more adorable. As soon as I sat down at the "bar", I was offered something to drink, including complimentary mimosas..HELLO! I scanned through the drybar menu and chose the southern comfort, big hair and lots of volume. I sat back, drank my mimosa, charged my iphone in the wall charger set up at my station and read a magazine. I just really don't think I could have been more relaxed, I felt like a princess! In the end, my hair looked fabulous and it was defiantly worth the $40!
