Says Sarah:

I love procrastinating, any time, any where. When I should be working, when I said I’d meet friends 20 minutes ago, when I need to start getting out of bed, and when I should be sleeping. I use instagram to find trends, to stay informed, to explore new places, and of course, to laugh. Here are some of my favorites that keep me nice and distracted.
