There are plenty of posts where bloggers discuss and poke fun at the staged Instagram photos, the ones of the perfectly organized desks and apartments, the ice cream cones that weren't devoured but looked nice with the sprinkles, the equally chic and awkward outfit shots in the cities. Life look so glamorous and put together when you scroll through some Instagram feeds and photos on Twitter...and there's nothing wrong with that!

Even through this past year, I've definitely noticed a shift in the way I do things. I stage pictures on social media, take pictures at inopportune times "just incase," and have on several occasions uttered the phrases "I'll have to blog about that!" or I am just too lazy to relay a story, I have been known to just tell people to read my blog.

"UGGs from the eighth grade & ill-fitting leggings from high school. "

"I cuddled with my Keurig when I got back to school today. " 

"The reality of a night routine. "
