[Washington, DC] Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken - Maple Bacon and PB&J Doughnut

Today's post is about Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken in Washington, DC.

Or, it's just about the doughnuts portion of Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken is a tiny shop on G Street NW between 13th and 14th Street in Washington, DC. Despite its size, and the almost constant line when I went, I had a very pleasant experience.

My friend and I each got a doughnut and a Blood Orange San Pellegrino. She got the PB&J doughnut, which is a strawberry filled doughnut with peanut butter icing (including peanut pieces). The highlight for my friend was how fluffy it was because the propensity of filled doughnuts toward heaviness. Additionally, although filled, it was still a ring.

I got the Maple Bacon doughnut, which is a plain doughnut maple icing and bacon pieces. My doughnut was also fluffy, which speaks to their consistently good doughnuts. My favorite part was the combination of flavors and textures. The light doughnut paired with the bacon, and the savory bacon with the maple icing. Also, the icing was not overly-sweet, so it did not overwhelm the bacon.

They also offer fried chicken, sandwiches, and various sides along with around eight doughnut choices. We didn't try the other food, but I will definitely go back!

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
