Cone Day

Cone Day

When the holiday season is approaching the Pine Forest, everybody gets into a jolly mood. But they do things a bit differently here. For example: when it’s time to decorate, Pine Foresters don’t chop down trees and put them up in their living rooms. Oh no, they instead decorate the trees that grow around town.

One day while cruising through Instagram we stumbled upon a great-looking profile called Bunch of Boys and it’s creator Agata Kmuk.

Agata is a self-confessed coffee and chocolate fanatic, who has a talent for sewing (she says she’s learned it all from YouTube). She’s originally from Poland and has relocated to Cork, Ireland, where she now spends most of her time with—you guessed it—a bunch of boys.
