2015 - A Year in Instax

A Year In Review

2015 has been a wonderful and fulfilling year, complete with new beginnings, huge life transitions, and multiple moments of existential crises. After digging through my blog archive, I realized that I never did a 2014 recap! (I did however do recap posts for 2012 and 2013.) I'd like to share with you some of my ups and downs, and how I've changed over the past year.


January: A Mixtape

Baby, don't you wish we could press pause, freeze frame...

The days are long, dark, and cold. Although January is the start of a new year, a start of something new, I'd rather sit at home wrapped in blankets.

I've decided to put together little monthly mixtapes. The idea was inspired by one of my favourite blogs, Bramble and Thorn - I urge you to visit her blog, the photography is absolutely gorgeous.

Please enjoy this collection of songs - laid back, chilled out dreary January vibes.

Clear Skin with Neutrogena - Oil-Free & Pink Grapefruit Solutions Review!

Here we are... a very cold and grey 2016! We were doing so well - I truly believe we were going to get through winter with the 10C+ temperatures unscathed... Although we seem to have avoided the 4-foot snow piles (for now), the weather is still harsh against my sensitive skin.
