▲ January on Instagram ▲

Hellooooo lover(s). That was meant to sound like Carrie from Sex & the City, but you can't really understand tone online. Anyway, that's beside the point. Remember how it was New Year's Eve just like 2 days ago? Well, now it's February. Did I sleep through all of January or what? Did you catch the Superbowl? Patriots won if you hadn't heard. This month's Instagram recap seems to focus on nature. Boy was she beautiful. Do you follow me on Instagram? It's kind of weird if you don't. :]

  6. That sunset is BE-U-TEE-FUL! It is strange that February is here and ready to party. I'm excited cause that means Mardi Gras is around the corner and I get to consume my weight in king cake and hurricanes.

  15. Why yes, I must definitely follow you on instagram!

    Lovely photos and also, I totally agree with you. Where did January go? I kind of hibernated to be honest, with freezing temperatures I stayed home almost every weekend, only going out because of work during the week. haha

    Really looking forward for my mid-winter holidays in a couple of days though! Woop!

    Happy February Carmen!
