A Year in Instagram 2015

Perhaps a tad late in sharing this, but it’s still January, so I think I can get away with it.

I still managed to sneak in a couple of holidays, a few outings and lots of eating and I’ll continue to do so in 2016.Continue reading

You can also add cool masks, borders and frames. So at a few touches of the buttons and a couple of minutes editing, you can have some really great photos as a result!Continue reading
