All About my Washington D.C Trip

my trip 01.20.19

Hi Guys! It’s Anaais,

I just came back a couple of days ago from my trip to the east coast, I went to Washington D.C for the first time, and had the experience of my life! Definitely a trip to remember. Where to begin….. It was a 6 hour flight from Los Angeles to D.C longest flight I’ve ever taken but it was totally worth it though. When I landed in D.C it was so cold, the weather in January in the east coast was out of this world for me, take in mind I’m a California girl, I’m used to it being sunny and warm most of the time. I was definitely not expecting it to be that COLD but other than that everything was beautiful.

If your thinking about going to Washington D.C or just want to know about my D.C trip and places I recommend to stay at, visit, eat and take Instagram worthy pictures then keep on reading.

WHERE I STAYED AT:

exterior

There is always a first time for everything right? In my case it was my first time staying at a hotel. The hotel I stayed at is called Embassy Suites Hotel by Hilton. The hotel had complimentary perks that included cooked-to-order breakfast, and evening receptions with snacks and drinks. There were also an indoor pool, a hot tub and a fitness room. The suites are located in a really nice place near the city center where you can go shopping, sightseeing,and eat at restaurants nearby.

My hospitality there was great, welcoming and cozy. The room was clean, it had a flat-screen T.V in the living room and bedroom. The room also included a coffee maker a mini-fridge and microwave. The bathroom and the bedroom were big and always clean. Overall a 10/10.

PLACES I ATE AT:

. Corner Cafe:  Located close to D.C’s Union Station. Here they sell overpriced but delicious Coffee, Salads, Sandwiches and Hot Chocolate.(8/10)

. Five Guys: Located at 0.3 miles from the White House,Five guys is like the In-N-Out of the east coast. Here you can custom make your own burger or hot-dog, fries and milk shakes.(10/10)

. Vapiano: Italian Restaurant located in D.C’s Chinatown. Here you can make your own pastas,decided what sauce and meat you want and they also custom make pizzas and salads.(10/10)

. Finn & Porters: This restaurant is located inside the Embassy Suites Hotel. They sell Steak, Sea-Food and Sushi. This Restaurant is more on the pricier side because its a’la carte. The appetizers  and food were really good. (9/10)

PLACES I VISITED:

With the government shutdown that is going on right now, most of the Historical Museums were closed. So the options were limited, but with some research you can still manage to have some fun and explore around D.C. Here are some of the place I went to and totally encourage you to check out and take some Insta-Worthy pictures.

U.S Botanic Garden:  (Free) The U.S. Botanic Garden is dedicated to demonstrating the aesthetic, cultural, economic, therapeutic and ecological importance of plants to the well-being of humankind. There is plants from all over the U.S.

. White House:  I think we all know about the white house but here is some background info. The White House is the official residence and workplace of the President of the United States.

. U.S Capitol: The U.S Capitol is a monument, a working office building, and one of the most recognizable symbols of representative democracy in the world

. Georgetown University:Georgetown University is a private research school in the beautiful neighborhood of Georgetown. The architecture and history behind it is also amazing and a great place to take outfit pictures.

. Touch-Stone Gallery:Touch-Stone Gallery is a 5 minute walk from the Hotel. It’s a nice and small gallery with incredible art. Fun Fact: I was a part of a mosaic art portrait made by the amazing artist : Jason Mecier and is the reason why I went to D.C explore my story at: https://whatwearemadeof.us

Overall, my trip to Washington D.C was an incredible experience. It’s was one of those trips that I will always remember because of the memories I created. I can officially cross this off my travel bucket list.

Now the question is….. where will my next destination be ??

XOXO,

Anaais 🙂

 

3 Tips on how to stay organized in High-School

Hey guys It’s Anaais 🙂

Today’s blog post is dedicated to; HOW TO STAY ORGANIZED IN HIGH SCHOOL. Hope you enjoy my tips, and leave me feedback in the comment section :

If your in high school, you’ve probably got a lot on your plate right now! You might feel overwhelmed trying to balance school work, friends, family, and extracurricular activities. You’re not alone, I feel this way right now !. Luckily, there are several steps you can take to make it easier to organize your (School) life.

TIP #1: Start by choosing some tools like a planner or app that will keep track of your schedule. ( I’m a planning FREAK! I prefer writing things down, but others prefer having a digital planner on their phone. Whatever works best for you. Planning is a life changer! )Related image

TIP #2: Make a to-do list for each day. When you have a lot of tasks to do, it can be easy to forget 1 or 2 of them. Instead of stressing out because you forgot to do something, write down a list of things you need to do each day. You could either make your lists at the beginning of the week or each night before you go to bed. Your list might look something like this:Image result for school to do list

TIP #3: Schedule even small activities. You can manage to do all the things you want to do if you make your calendar really detailed. It might seem unnecessary, but you can save a lot of unnecessary stress if you set aside time for even the smallest tasks. You might not think of these as scheduled activities, but you should mark out time for them even if they just take a few minutes. As a bonus, you’ll get great satisfaction from crossing lots of things off your list each day! Some short tasks you might list include:

  • Setting out your clothes for the next day.
  • Packing your lunch.    (I do this every night, and it saves me a lot of time in the morning. I can sometimes even sleep 30 mins more if I prep everything in the night)

I hope this was helpful, let me know in the comments down below. If ya’ll want more school related posts like these I would be happy to do some 🙂

 

XOXO,

DIY “Vest with Iron-on Patches”

www.glamourbyanaaisblog.wordpress.com (1)

 

Hey Guys! It’s Anaais.

Welcome back to my blog. I decided to incorporate more DIY fashion, that is affordable but also super cute. So here is a modification of this “jean-jacket” that I transformed into a vest with cute iron-on patches. If you want to learn how to do this really easy and cute vest, then follow along :

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  1.  A new or used jean jacket.
  2. Iron-on patches (I got mine on Amazon, for an affordable price.)
  3. A pair of Fabric Scissors.
  4. Iron Machine.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut the sleeves off the jean jacket, cut close to the edge. Image result for diy cut sleeves off jean jacket
  2. (This is optional) If you don’t want to have a raw edge, you can use pinking shears to prevent it from fraying.Image result for fraying jean fabric
  3.  (This has a few steps to it) Step 1: Set your iron machine to 350 degrees. Step 2: Place your applique patch in position you want and place a cloth over top. Step 3: Press the iron down for 20 seconds.

And that it ! Super easy right? I would like to know if you end up trying this DIY, let me know in the comments.

XOXO,

Anaais 🙂
