week in instagram | 2012 finale

I’ve been MIA for a few days because I’m getting my chillax on in Byron Bay!

We’ve been eating, laughing, drinking, sunbaking, eating, drinking, shopping, watching Harley entertain us & walking on the beach.

It’s been divine!

Thanks to my fave app (Instagram) here’s what I’ve been up to in pictures (there’s a few so bare with me)…
