instagram diaries: end of summer

Music festivals, beach trips, and spectacular sunsets signalling the end of summer. This is also one of those lazy posts where I group together some Instagram photos and parade it around as a real blog post. My bad.

1. Dancing in the rain to New Order at Future Music Festival. Definite life highlight.
2. Friendly Fires at Future. Funnest set. Even if I did get mud kicked on me.
3, 4. Nature putting on a show.
5. Making the most of the sunshine before the rain set in.
6. Golden Gaytime ice creams at the beach. An Aussie tradition.

      WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT. I think you need to get at least 134932 more to make up for a lifetime devoid of Golden Gaytimes.

    Music festivals are my favourite thing about summer and this year was definitely a great one. I'm already missing it so much! I saw New Order and Friendly Fires at Future Music too. Bernard actually mentioned that it rained in Brisbane the night before and how it was good to see some sun in Perth. :p Friendly Fires are definitely a lot of fun! I can't get enough of Ed's dance moves!

    Oh these are amazing! The New Order-one definitely LOOKS like a life highlight, dancing in the rain to such a band with all those people must be so fun.

    And I really(!) like photo 4 and 6. Definite a feel of summer, and I really like your nails in 6 too!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      Admittedly, at the time, the rain was a bit of a downer. But looking back now, it was amazing! hahaha. A good story to tell anyway!
