The one with the cherry blossoms.

I mentioned in my Soft Spring Makeup video that I was heading into the city with my friend Karin to see the cherry blossoms. A brutal winter plus a few especially windy days did seem to take their toll on the blossoms this year, but we were able to find some pretty trees. It was a nice change to tote my camera around just for fun - that's definitely something I want to do more of this summer. Hope you enjoy the pictures of the blossoms!

  2. this makes me miss DC so much! thanks for sharing!

  3. Amazing! I can't imagine how good it smelled, too. :)

  4. Those are so pretty! I see you got the Joyous Health book. I pre-ordered it after watching your weight loss/beautifying foods video. I am so excited to read through it and change the way I eat!

  5. Lovely photos! Sounds like a perfect time for a walk outside :)

  6. I was there two weeks ago, the cherry blossoms were all gone by then, I was so sad! Your pictures are beautiful, though, now I wish even more that I could've seen them!

  7. Hi Ashley! Those photos are beautiful. I sent you an email earlier, but can you let me know what kind of camera and lens you use / recommend? Thanks!


    1. Hi Julie! I use a Canon Rebel T5i. For these pictures I was switching between a Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens and a macro lens for the close up shots. : )

    2. Which Macro lens? They really were beautiful!

  8. love these photos! it always makes me so happy when you post, a love a glimpse into my home (virginia, d.c.) along with your awesome make-up tips.

  9. Gorgeous shots Ashley! Visiting the cherry blossoms in bloom is definitely on my bucket list of things to do. We might actually go next Spring and I'm so excited about it!
