I decided this month to do Fatmumslim’s photo a day challenge, which you can find here. There were a couple days that I had to double up because of random issues, but for the most part I’ve been able to keep up the photo a day schedule. Since I don’t want to bog down a single post with 30 pictures, I figured that I’d break the month up into three 10-day segments to make loading easier. some photos are definitely better than others, but I am liking the challenge of interpreting my daily assignment and trying to be creative.
Day 2: colour. Since I already shot crayons the first day, I had to do something a little less obvious for day 2. I chose this colorful eyeshadow palette from Coastal Scents because, as a beauty blogger, I have a real appreciation for the rainbow of colors a makeup palette can provide.
Day 6: a favorite thing. The weather has gotten pretty cold here, so I have been wearing these fuzzy slipper booties every day to keep my feet warm and toasty. My sister gave them to me for Christmas last year and I love them.
Day 7: reflection. I had absolutely no inspiration this day, and I looked like crap, so I didn’t want to take a picture of me. Luckily my husband was working from home that day and allowed me to interrupt him so that I could finish my assignment. I gave him a ridiculously over-the-top pink and black flowery mirror that I received in a Dollar Store craft swap, and snapped a picture of him reflecting on his reflection.
Day 8: something you do every day. We get organic fruit and vegetables delivered to us, and we recently increased our order to once a week. Because of this, we have (what seems like) a never-ending supply of apples. So lately I literally have been eating an apple a day.
Day 9: small. I took a shot of some star confetti that I have in my craft stash. The lighting this day was not the best, but that’s what happens when you try to take a picture every day. Cloudy days happen.
Day 10: can’t (won’t) live without. One thing that I refuse to live without anymore are cats. I’m not quite a crazy cat lady (yet), but I have decided that cats improve the quality of my life. I had a couple when I was growing up, but after they eventually died, I didn’t have any cats for several years. I missed having kitties, and wanted them, but our apartment was too small. I got these two beauties four years ago, when we moved to NC. The years that I did not have cats were not as fun as the years that I did have them. So for the rest of my life, I will have feline friends living with me. (I had to take two photos because they refuse to be in a picture together.)
That’s it for my first ten days. I am doing well on my second set, and will post them sometime late next week (hopefully).
