[DC - Penn Quarter] Bakers & Baristas

Stumbled upon Bakers & Baristas in Penn Quarter before visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

We each got something different, which actually kind of matched our personalities - Cold Brew, Iced Tea, and a Flat White.

They actually messed up the order we wanted a large iced tea and a small cold brew, but they gave us the opposite. They ended up throwing away the large cold brew and the small iced tea and then correcting our order. We never even left the counter, so I think they could have technically just poured the cold brew into a small cup and discarded the remaining amount (if discarding is their SOP) and then just poured the iced tea into the large cup and the filled it, but I don't know their procedures.

Anyway, the cold brew was good. I've found that sometimes going to independent coffee shops and getting cold brew is a little hit and miss, but this was a hit. It got me properly caffeinated and wasn't too acidic.

The flat white was a hit. I didn't try any because...milk. It was reported that it was flavorful and wasn't too milky, just the perfect amount of espresso.

[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.
