▲ February on Instagram ▲

Oh, Instagram you're probably my favorite social media platform. People can share their most exciting moments, their most mundane moments, or just any moment in general. My Instagram style changed over time; now I focus on some selfies (it's acceptable on Insta!), some nature shots, some food, just a well-balanced range of what I see when I see it. Do you follow me on Instagram yet?!!? :]

That said, this February on Instagram I did quite a bit of exploring -- both with friends & my boyfriend. I tried new drinks such as the Starbucks Twix Frappuccino which is off the menu; you'll have to ask if they can make it. It was pretty good, but my boyfriend & I couldn't finish this  massive sugar-ridden drink. I put it in the freezer & saved it for another day. Was still good!

I found some cool graffiti, saw some dazzling sunsets, & had a wonderful month in general. How about you? The California skies were particularly lovely this month. Due to "winter," we had more clouds than usual. This is a bonus if you're anything like me & enjoy taking photos of the bewitching earth.

Every day is only as exciting as you make it. My amazing friend, Andrea (the one pictured in "West coast babes") & I try to meet up every Tuesday & usually some fantastic story or photo comes out of it. Every time. Maybe it's just us. Maybe it's our personalities. Maybe it's just how the world works, but we love it & it makes for some great conversation starters.

Do you have any daily, weekly, or monthly rituals that you look forward to? What's one goal you'd like to achieve in March? Oh, & tell me which photo is your favorite!! :]

  3. I like facebook the most as well. It just seems like a more positive place than facebook. I like looking at life's little moments.

  5. A Twix Frappuccino sounds like a hit or miss but I'll take your word for it & maybe give it a try next time I venture over to Starbucks. Jack Daniels however i'm already on board with!
