Monthly Instagram Update & Happy New Year from Vietnam…!

Monthly Instagram Update & Happy New Year from Vietnam…!

It’s the last day of the year, and while I’m eagerly looking forward to ringing in the New Year in a few hours, with the midnight firecrackers that Ho Chi Minh City is so acclaimed for lighting up the sky above me, I can’t help but pause to reminisce and reflect on the year that has just flown by!

2015 was such a lovely year for me in so many ways. I have already highlighted some of My Favourite Things from the past year in a previous post, but if I was to be completely honest, the year’s biggest disappointment for me has been on the blogging front. I fell back in many ways. I haven’t been able to post half as often as I would like as life in the real world took over. But this is one thing I am most certainly looking at rectifying in the coming year!

But let’s wrap up the current year shall we, before we can look forward? So here’s a quick look at the past couple of months, flashed back through Instagram.

2015… and a Few of my Favourite Things…!

For this month’s #BlogAlong, the monthly link-up party hosted by Shruti, Pooja and I, we thought it would be fun to look back at the year that was…!

2015 has been a great year for me, in so many ways…! A year of family celebrations, of personal discoveries & professional achievements; and of many beautiful memories. So, as we begin the countdown to the end of 2015 and before we begin looking towards what 2016 may bring; here’s a quick look back at some of my favourite things from this past year.

Monthly Instagram Update – October 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – October 2015

October – one of my favourite months in the year, and always the busiest!!!
This year, also the reason why things have been so utterly silent and forlorn here at Life On My Plate!

Monthly Instagram Update – September 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – September 2015

Clearly, I am seriously behind in my blogging updates!
The highlight for me in the month of September was our family holiday to Russia. I’ve already taken you through some of the best things about the trip in my Russia through Instagram post, but there was a bit more to the month as well!

So here’s a quick look at the month of September, flashed back through Instagram.

Monthly Instagram Update – August 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – August 2015

August became the second month in 2015 without any travel materializing. The only consolation I had was the wee bit of travel planning I’ve been doing for my upcoming trip. My itchy feet have been acting up like no body’s business, and I can’t wait till Friday! But more on that in just a little bit!

Here’s a quick look at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

Monthly Instagram Update – July 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – July 2015

26 Days…!
It’s been 26 days since my last post; the longest I have ever gone, in my over two years of blogging, without something new coming out on LifeOnMyPlate!

Definitely not something I am proud of!

But with some disturbances and disruptions in life this past month, and some new travel planning that is turning out to be way more complicated than I had anticipated, penning down a post was the last thing on my mind. But more on that later…!

So while I head off to try and get my Blogging mojo back, here’s a quick look at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

Monthly Instagram Update – June 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – June 2015

June was a bit of a mixed bag for me…
There was a lot going on off the blog this past month: a hectic work schedule over the past so-many months culminated in a promotion that I was very glad for; and all the celebrations that came along with it were very welcome!
There was certain good news to be had on the Blog as well, but more on that in just a little bit!

But while there was ample cause to rejoice last month, June also became the first month in over a year that I did not travel outside of Delhi AT ALL. No work trip, no quick weekend getaway, nothing! So the #Take12Trips in 2015 challenge took a small hit. Luckily, I’ve got a few trips planned in the months to come, so I’m not beating myself up too much over it!

But here’s a quick look back at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

I’ve been having a particularly rough time dealing with the Delhi summer this year!
The city feels like a furnace, and more than 5 seconds spent outdoors feels like my skin might be set ablaze any moment!

Needless to say, I’ve been hiding indoors and avoiding stepping outside of home / office as much as possible. June is turning out to be quite an uneventful month.

But before that, here’s a quick look back at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

Monthly Instagram Update – April 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – April 2015

“The bad news is that time flies…
The good news is that you’re the pilot…!”

Just thought I’d start the latest flashback post with a little quote I read recently that resonated with me deeply.

Monthly Instagram Update – March 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – March 2015

We’re almost at the end of April, and I still haven’t found the time for the Monthly Instagram Roundup from March! My procrastination skills never cease to amaze me…!

At the beginning of each month I tell myself that I need to get my blogging act together! And yet, in the blink of an eye, the month seems to have whizzed right on by. Pfft… Something must be done!

But before that, here’s a quick look back at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.
