The following is an actual conversation that I had with my father:

Daddy D: I heard you went to the cat cafe! Did you take your new camera?

Me: Yup!

Daddy: You should blog about it! Maybe they’ll give you free…

Me (interjecting): CATS!?!?

Daddy D: Um… I was going to say coffee.

And now you know how my brain works. You’re welcome.

For those of you that live under a rock (or not in DC. or not on the internets), there is a magical place just walking distance from my apartment in Georgetown where you can order in from Olivia Macaron and lounge around with cats. It is called Crumbs & Whiskers.

I am so #blessed to have a roommate that loves cats as much as I do and who let me take pictures of her all weekend.

For a small fee of $15 that goes directly back into the care and upkeep of the cats + building, you can spend some time with some really amazing cats with a ton of purrsonality. Most of them (all of them?) are available for adoption. All adoptions are handled through Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation. Adoptions are on a first come, first serve basis.

This little guy was hanging out by the treats, available for purchase if you want/ need to bribe the cats to hang out. Meghann and I did not.

As we nibbled on our macarons, we got to learn about each cat. Binx, above, kind of seems to be running the place, at least where treats are concerned. Topper likes to be up high where he can observe. Kippie is definitely a sassy madame… there were about 20 cats and I could likely tell you about all of them, but you should really go see them yourself!

The idea of having a cafe, albeit with a limited menu, where you can hang out with animals is awesome in and of itself, but the fact that the place actually contributes to finding these gorgeous creatures a home is just the catnip on the cake… or something.

Fluffball accidentally made me bleed while we were playing. But don’t you worry- I got her back by making her wear a festive hat.

Crumbs & Whiskers also has cool events such as Cat Yoga + kitten parties. Yes, they deliever kittens to you if you’re close enough. The kittens come with macarons. I’m not sure if I could even make this stuff up. The best way to stay in the loop is to either live with Meghann (seat’s taken. sorry) or follow along with them on all their social media: facebook/ twitter/ instagram.

I mean… does this not look like heaven? Let me know if you’ve been or if you’re planning to!

TGIF

I can’t believe June is halfway gone- where has this entire year been going!? Kendall will be home within 48 hours and I cannot wait until we are back in our little routine! Speaking of- so sorry my TGIFs have naht been happening. I’m the craziest I think I have ever been at work and my energy is zapped. I’ll try to be better because I love sharing links with you!

This week on The CaroLøve

Happy Father’s Day to all the papas out there! I’ll be going home to see mine on Sunday, but next year, I’m hoping that Brunch on the Baselines happens again because I would LOVE to take Daddy D! Thanks to Angelica for sharing!

Didya hear the news?!? Bubbles & Bloggers is now on Twitter! Check us out and connect with us there! We’ll be sharing member posts + fun updates!

If you’ve been following me since Little Bitty City One, you may remember that I had a couple of roommates and a catmate who I absolutely adored. Meghann is now taking in fosters and you can follow their adventures on kittersofgeorgetown!

Sophie of Rosé Media weighed in on First Lady Melania Trump’s Instagram- why it’s so bad and how to avoid the same mistakes.

On a serious note, you may have already heard about the local woman who was bitten by a snake in her own home. Christie is actually my manager for my yoga studio job, and not that anyone deserves to be bitten by a snake in their own home, but she really didn’t. Please keep her in your thoughts as she recovers.

Have a wonderful weekend! Have fun and make good choices!

Good morning and happy Friday (THE 13TH), loves! Is anyone else having a rough time staying focused? Maybe it’s the winter doldrums, but I’ve needed an extra coffee almost every day this week!

I can’t wait for my girls night tonight at Sax, and I’m heading to Mason Inn tomorrow night for their Back to the 80’s Costume Party featuring the Heirs of Hair. Having Mason walking distance from us is the best- we’re totally loving the neighborhood vibe!

This week on The CaroLøve:

Grace inspired me to ditch the drugstore moisturizer + go for essential oil instead. I honestly just went to Wholefoods and stood in the aisle and sniffed until one spoke to me, making sure that I was just buying an essential oil- no additional ingredients. I picked Cheer Up Buttercup because it smelled like sunshine to me, and was a combo of citrus oils. I’ve only been using it for about 24 hours, but so far, so good! The bottle I got for it isn’t really dispensing it well, but a couple drops instead of what I was using and my face feels soft, but not oily and smells wonderful. I’ll let you guys know in like a month if it’s done anything to my skin either way.

*EDIT* my former roommate told me that undiluted citrus oil can actually damage skin, and I should be mixing my essential oil with a moisturizing oil- like almond or grapeseed oil. I guess I was just too excited to try something all-natural for my skin and jumped in without the proper research.

Edit pt. 2: I was entirely too excited to start a new skincare routine and definitely just jumped into it. There wasn’t a whole lot of info on the bottle of oil I got- just basically that it was oil with no additives. Apparently, I should not have been using this on my skin AT. ALL. – so it’s a good thing Meghann caught me. I am immediately switching to something made for faces. Please consult a dermatologist for any drastic skincare changes, or at least do your research first. I’m so sorry.

Fellow cat-lady Dani rounded up some of the chicest kitty-cat pieces for your closet.

I’m not vegan nor will I ever be, but I think this is an interesting piece. Should vegans wear faux fur? I guess I never thought of a reason not to before. In the spirit of full disclosure, I don’t wear fur, mostly because I’m horribly allergic, but I do wear leather and eat meat. You make your choices, and I will make mine.

My coworker/ photog took and impromptu trip to Lancaster for NYE. Apparently, that is the place to be!

Ok, so I know I just about always think this, but the new collection from Kate Spade is everything. Dinosaurs? Hearts? Balloons? SOLD.

Is anyone else kind of really excited that these sneakers are back? My mom had a pair that she gave to me for a muddy field trip in 7th grade and I wish they hadn’t been destroyed. I might have to get us each a pair!

Have a great weekend!
