▲ December on Instagram ▲

Oh Instagram, how I have learned to love thee this month. I'm really coming into my element on Instagram & I feel like I've got my groove. These are some of my favorite photos from this month -- portraying where I've been, what I've done, & pretty much what I've drank. I went on a trip to Los Angeles with the boyfriend. We tried some good food.  I had some good times with good homies. We tested out new brew & generally had a pretty fantastic time. Plus, I must say I made sure to utilize the most of the Christmas spirit.  Now on to 2015. Whoa. ❅❅❅

Christmas decorations in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles after the rain.


A "Joe-rita" from Indian Joe Brewery. Basically beer with citrus & a salt rim. 

Friends<3

Fresh squeezed orange juice & the Christmas tree (& chipped nail polish).

We watched Troop Beverly Hills that night. :D

Christmas brews & see through shoes.

Style post!

How was your December? What's something you've learned this year? Please feel free to share your experiences. :]

  13. I love all of your Instagrams, but my favorite is the picture of Little Tokyo. It's one of my favorite places in L.A. and, if you haven't already, you should definitely check out the coffee shop in that picture, Cafe Dulce. They have amazing coffee and donuts!

  22. Ooo that "Joe-rita" looks so refreshing and delicious! It's summer here and that looks like the perfect summer beverage...might have to recreate that at home!
    I appreciate your chipped nails because they're real (and I happen to take photos like that all the time haha) and love your outfit in the last photo!
