so long, summer.

Drink of choice
After reading IFB's article on how the compulsive use of instagram can hinder the motivation to blog or consistency in doing so, I was like... OMG TOTES. So many outfits, outings, and musings of mine have gone unblogged this summer because once I conveniently upload them to instagram, they soon after feel like yesterday's news and nothing worth rehashing on the internet. This weekend marks the end of my summer, and this fall I want to try to turn over a new leaf. Pun absolutely posi-tootly intended. Social media is an awesome wing man for a blog or website, but a douchey friend, instead of supporting your efforts, it ends up stealing the show. So over the past couple of days, I've gone back through my Valencia filtered snippets of summer 2012 and curated the pictures that woulda coulda shoulda been elaborated on as blog posts. But, even though I didn't document it the way I wanted to, this season was so so good to me. No complaints at all, y'all.
