Monthly DLA-instagram review - August & September

As you have probably noticed (and as I have mentioned earlier) my posting frequency has slowed down a bit during the last months.

And I happily agreed. As mentioned - it has now been around 8 months since I ordered the shirts. I think now is good time to take closer look at the process and results.
