I have NO idea how tomorrow is the beginning of March. HOW HOW HOW? February was full of lots of new adventures, several great books, really cold weather just about everywhere, and way too much time spent looking up YouTube videos.
Here’s a little recap of this February with our most popular Instagram posts. (Are you on Instagram? Find us @ReadingGals, @thatsostelle, and @magan; we’d love to get to know you better, too!)
SHOPPING LIST MUSTS
Magan’s Pick: Liar’s Inc.
Estelle’s Pick: Girl Before a Mirror
We both HIGHLY recommend: I’ll Meet You There
WHAT TO CLICK
- Check out the posts that were written for Dive Into Diversity this month such as this great post about Rosa Parks or this post where Genevieve points out the diversity in Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless (loved that book!). Also: Don’t forget to link up your DID posts so we can check them out!
- I became more than a little obsessed with watching makeup videos on YouTube and love Makeup by Tiffany D. (Bronzer, anyone? Even my husband has noticed how pasty this winter has made me.)
- In the spirit of the #Loveathon / #LoveathonRAK, spread some love to your friends by showing them how much you care with one (or multiple) of these fourteen ways.
