Through My Lens : Recently on Instagram

Downtown New York

I think this may have been one of my favorite December's ever and the gorgeously warm weather probably had something to do with it. I also feel like I posted more pics than usual last month on Instagram. Here are some of the highlights. There were alot more I wanted to share but I'm not big on image overload so to see the rest, check out my Instagram feed and of course you can also follow if you'd like. I've been doing mini reviews for food and beauty on there and it's something that I will be continuing and expanding on this year. Oh the winter weather arrived in NYC earlier this week.
