April Instagram Roundup!


So as it turns out writing your February Instagram Roundup at the end of March doesn't give your March Roundup much of a chance.  But the past is in the past (#letitgo) and so we must focus on the now - which just so happens to be the end of April aka the PERFECT time to do an April Instagram Roundup #win

Quick note before we dive in - expect to see lots of new and exciting things happening around these sparkly parts.  And very soon, lots of awesomeness is in the works!

February Instagram Roundup - February Favorites


Well if this post doesn't showcase my procrastination then I don't know what does - oops!  Ah, such is life.  I wanted to start a new series on the blog here - monthly Instagram roundups!  Sound good?  Lemme know what you think.  I want to do this monthly for two reasons:
1) so you can get a recap of everything I'm loving this month and
2) it will be a great thing to look back on to remember my life!

There's quite a few posts here so grab yo' self a snack and get to scrolling!

7 Shopping Tips for Tall Girls

Being a girl is so hard sometimes, am I right?  

I could write a whole post on that alone but right now I'm talking about height.  Short girls wish they were taller and tall girls wish they were shorter.  Both ends of the spectrum come with their challenges, but being 5'9" I'm here to help out my above average height friends today.

Oh Instagram... sometimes I think back to the simpler days of posting whatever was going on in my life with whatever dull lighting was available and getting excited when my likes turned from names to a number.  Who can relate?
