Army Green Vest + Favorite Podcasts

So, it happened. After months and months of hearing about the podcast train and never thinking I would hop on it, I finally did. Honestly, I was surprised I didn't get into them sooner! I always watch YouTube videos in my free time and would much rather have them playing in the background rather than music. I pretty much only listen to music in the car or at the gym, but there's only so much Justin Bieber you can listen to, am I right? So when my cousin first introduced me to my first podcast I was hooked. It was like listening to a YouTube video but I can do it in my car and not worry about getting distracted by a screen!

How I Edit My Instagram Photos

As much as I hate to admit it, but I spend way too much time on Instagram. I feel like I'm either always editing a photo, planning out my feed or just scrolling through it in general.
