November Photo-a-Day

Happy Friday, can I bombard you with some questions?

Are you on Instagram? Have you seen this monthly photo-a-day thing people are doing? Are you dreading the day Instagram goes out of style and you have to go back to taking ugly unfiltered pictures?

No? Just me on that last one?

Back to the photo-a-day thing. Every month, the author behind the Fat Mum Slim blog puts out the monthly challenge list and social media outlets are flooded with interpretations of the theme of the day. I’d never done it before but came across the November list and thought it’d be fun.

Turns out it was. I realized the pictures basically showed a roundup of my my life and the little things that maybe don’t get mentioned on the blog (or maybe things that already get mentioned too much…) and I had fun looking at everyone else’s interpretation of the theme.

Since I only shared the pictures on Instagram, I thought I’d shove them all into one post here, for your voyeuristic pleasure. And now I promise to stop talking already.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

  1. “Are you dreading the day Instagram goes out of style and you have to go back to taking ugly unfiltered pictures?”

    If and when it does, I’d be willing to bet that the Lomography crowd will still be soldiering on. You’ll have to reacquaint yourself with film and get in touch with your inner hipster, but Lomographers are the royalty of LoFi photography. Check ’em out here:

    The one downside to Lomography is that official Lomographic “tools” (e.g. cameras) are on the pricier side of things. If you want the quirky effects of a toy camera without the expense, you could get yourself a Holga:

    or go find a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye for $5 at a garage sale/flea market/antique shop/etc. and spend a few minutes flipping the lens on it:

    Congrats on the month long photo project!

  2. Is there anyone alive who doesn’t love Candy Cane Lane tea??!! Whoever thought that up must have a mansion on Sleepytime Drive!
    P.S. You and your sister look adorable in that holiday picture!

    • Thanks, Nikki. It’s hard to get my sister to cooperate and take a picture with me so I had to ask Joey to snap a candid one and I loved how it turned out. If only I always had someone waiting around to get good candid pictures of me πŸ˜›
