Every week, our Instagram roundups bring you our favorite photos from the accounts we follow.

Is it just us, or has 2014 really been flying by? This week, we’re taking a step back and finding that little piece of personal paradise to give ourselves a bit of a breather. Whether it’s relaxing by the poolside, exploring the vast dessert, or snacking on novelty foods, it’s time for us to stop and smell the flowers – at least vicariously through Instagram.
