A year in grams. 

Since Christmas I’ve seen a lot of people share their ‘Instagram best nine’, a collage of their nine most liked Instagram posts of the year.

I flocked like a sheep to find mine but was disappointed to see that some of the things I consider highlights weren’t the things included in my ‘best nine’. And of course there are far more than nine!

So today I’m going to share the significant moments and highlights of 2015 through the magic of Instagram, as who doesn’t gram their best moments!

November

November was unarguably the best month of the year: I was on holiday, celebrated 20 years of life, and saw two amazing concerts in Auckland. It’s very hard to pick out the highlights!

What a way to start the day 🍳

And here we are: December 31st 2015, another year done and dusted. It’s been a very up and down kind of year, let’s hope 2016 is more smooth sailing.

Have a happy and safe new year.
