Sometimes brunching out just isn’t an option.

Most Sunday mornings I’d rather stay in bed, turn on a Die Hard marathon, and pay bills from my phone; Pants optional. Ain’t no shame in my Sunday morning game: I don’t have to make reservations, deal with crowded patios, or over served friends. First world problems. Instead, I crack open a few eggs, toss some berries in a bowl, and make my new favorite iced coffee with Lavazza.

I knew I wanted to put a spin on this week’s chocolatey cold coffee choice but it didn’t hit me until Lavazza sent me these ice pop makers. Bailey’s ice cubes, anyone!?

Little did I know, Bailey’s doesn’t freeze. Bartending fail 101. Even so, the cooled creamer did exactly what I’d hoped it would do – I just didn’t have those awesome frozen ice cube in coffee pictures to show for it!

Any tips for my next iced coffee creation? I’m thinking cookie butter cubes

To say that I’ve been living in this little black dress is the understatement of the century. It’s made by LUSH, my absolute favorite, and is comfier than your boyfriend’s oversized tee. Whether I’m in it for drinks down at the wharf or dressing up for a girls’ night at the Embassy Row restaurant, this LBD is a super comfy option that’s easy to accessorize.

What are some of your staple accessories you pair up with your LBD to take over the night?

One of the best parts about living in DC is that you can break away to almost any type of getaway in under a few hours. Whether you’re looking for a casual weekend at the beach, a cozy time in the mountains, or you’d rather party in Manhattan or South Beach, each destination is just a few hours away. While I love a good getaway every now and again, sometimes it’s just not an option. With work, Wendell, and busy schedules, vacation is a luxury I’m not able to enjoy right now which is why I choose to treat myself to a little staycation whenever I can. The newly renovated Embassy Row Hotel is my go to spot since it’s in the heart of Dupont, right off the circle, and has a killer rooftop pool/bar situation. The rooms are clean and the hallways are quiet which is the most important thing to me when I stay in a hotel. Room rates are super reasonable too, which makes this staycation spot a no brainer. Check it out for yourself and let me know if you end up treating yourself to a sweet staycation!
