Girlfriend Fun Guide: Washington D.C.

1 2 3

Maybe it’s the government major I chose at Smith College…but trips to D.C. always deepen my gratitude to be an American. After all, what happens in those beautiful white landmark buildings have shaped this powerful country.

I always love touristy visits to landmarks like the Capitol and the Smithsonian…and to squeeze in some girl time with the ladies at D.C. Scout (one of our coolest local media partners) for some hotspot hunting. Check out my recent faves below and snap your tickets up now to celebrate the freedom a Girls Night Out brings—complimentary cocktails, the hautest fashions at hot prices, girlfriend bonding…and a limited time special ticket offer!

Spa:

DISCOVER: Bluemercury Georgetown, 3059 M St NW

EXPERIENCE: Hard to believe that Bluemercury has almost 30 locations across the US now and it all started with this original D.C. location. I got to meet founder Marla Malcolm Beck who’s literally the perfect combo of beauty and brains on my last trip to D.C. Marla personally selects what brands and products go into the locations.

What makes Bluemercury unique to other beauty locations like Sephora or Ulta are:

1. It’s a beauty shop and spa all in one—offering services like eyebrow waxing, facials and massages…and a product selection of 60 brands

2. They almost always have a makeup artist on-site from one of their featured cosmetic brands, offering a very boutiquey and intimate makeover experience…saving you a trip to large and crowded department stores

3. You know you’re getting an exceptionally curated beauty shopping selection by the owner and founder herself who is hands-down a serious beauty authority
