A Tour of the Washington DC Monuments & Memorials

DC Monuments & Memorials Washington Monument

I took a short trip to Washington, D.C. this weekend for a housewarming. So I made it my business to head to the National Mall and see the Monuments & Memorials while there. The last time that I remember visiting the capital was as a child and I didn’t get to see all of the monuments. I’ve also been dying to visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial so I was super excited. I made sure to get a few shots of myself at each one, although finding me in a few is almost as hard as finding Waldo lol. Let’s start with the Washington Monument.

It was amazing standing at the Reflecting Pool where so many before me stood to listen to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have A Dream” Speech.

But it was even more amazing to stand where Dr. King stood while giving the famous speech.

Besides the Housewarming and visiting the monuments, I ate at a few nice restaurants and just chilled out.

It’s always nice to get away, no matter how short.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
