Instagram in February

Time to share my top photos from Instagram this month!

Makeup Selfie

jan 21

This was uploaded on February 1. I share a lot of selfies lately on Instagram, especially when I’m super proud of how I did my makeup that day. This day, I came up with a bronze/gold look. I will say though, my skin was going through some crazy issues that week.

Makeup Selfie with Glasses

feb 11 selfie

This was uploaded on February 4. This is also another selfie! My phone is seriously filled with these. I did keep my glasses on this time though. This time, I played around with a maroon/purple look. My two favourite combos are either dark pink/purple, or brown/gold. They’re just my go-to.

Tongariro Crossing

This was uploaded on February 9. This time last year, Rory and I did the Great Walk over Tongariro Crossing. It took almost 6 hours, and we went through so much changing scenery at that time. My personal favourite of the spot was Emerald Lakes, pictured above. If you want to see more pictures from this walk, I wrote a post about it here!

Chocolate Heart Cupcakes

This was uploaded on February 12. With Valentine’s around the corner, I wanted to do some baking. As always, I turned to my Nerdy Nummies cookbook, and used the chocolate cake recipe, turning it into cupcakes. They were so delicous, and actually were all gone by Valentine’s rolled around haha! I did a post about it here.

Hanging Out 

This was uploaded on February 13. This was a throwback to last September, when Rory and I went to a walk down by the river. I really like this one, it was a candid one Rory got of me laughing. Whenever I ask him to take a shot of me somewhere, he always takes a million, normally while saying something dumb to crack me up. He’s gotten some pretty cool shots of me like that haha! Plus, the scenery was really pretty.

I haven’t been posting on Instagram as much this month, I normally like to post everyday, but sometimes I just don’t know what to post. Or I forget, if it’s been a crazy busy day at work. I still love using it though! It’s a fun and visual way to see what you guys get up to!

What’s one of your favourite photos from Instagram lately?
