February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 24

By Lindsey | February 24, 2012

I’ve kind of been dreading this photo. How do I make it creative? Why did the person who came up with this list really want to see all these bathrooms cabinets? Should I move the toilet paper?

At any rate, here it is. That little dish there is for the pure acetone next to it, which I use to clean up my manicures. I was going to hide it because it looks weird, but you know what… I forgot to.

As a bonus, you can see my Christmas towel. Yes, it’s February. But it still dries hands year-round.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 18

By Lindsey | February 24, 2012

With “drink,” I wanted to get all fancy and show off a colourful drink in a fun glass, but let’s be real here– I just drink Diet Pepsi all day. Aspartame makes me stronger!

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 17

By Lindsey | February 24, 2012

I enjoy when the numbers on a clock are all the same– which is why I was happy when I passed the spare bedroom with my camera in hand and saw it was 3:32. Didn’t have to wait long at all. This clock is pretty spectacular, too. It’s a gift from a friend and it keeps the correct time. I just had to put in my timezone, and it already knows what time it is. What sorcery!

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 16

By Lindsey | February 24, 2012

“Something new” is today’s theme, and the above key and bunny necklace is indeed new– I just purchased it off eBay with some certificates I had. It’s on a really long chain (we’re talking belly-button territory here), so I’ll probably have to get a new chain for it before I wear it. We’ll see.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 15

By Lindsey | February 23, 2012

Here’s a fun fact: I hate cell phones. HATE. I can’t deal with them, I can’t deal with people on them, I just can’t with cell phones. There’s nothing more infuriating to me than someone playing with their phone. The worst is standing in line at a fast food place or coffee shop when the person in front of you can’t be bothered to put their phone down as they place their order. How rude can you get?

More than that, I can’t use cell phones very well. I’ve only just figured out texting and I don’t do it that often. My husband has a fancy android phone and whenever I try to make a call I end up playing with his sound and deleting emails. I want a phone. I want to pick up said phone and dial. I don’t want to play around with apps and Angry Birds and trying to find where the keypad is.

So yes, my phone is elderly.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 14

How appropriate– “heart” for Valentine’s Day. I’ve always wanted a heart-shaped ring, and my husband (boyfriend at the time) bought one for me for a birthday… or maybe it was Valentine’s day? Christmas? Man, am I ever in trouble when he reads this.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 13

By Lindsey | February 23, 2012

I didn’t set out for it to be, but there’s a lot of blue in our spare bedroom, so I thought it would make for some good “blue” photos. Above is a couple vases in the room, and below is the bedding. It’s not the most attractive blue plaid bedding in the world, but that blanket is super cozy and warm!

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 12

By Lindsey | February 23, 2012

My house has three closets, and the main bedroom closet is the least embarrassing of the three. Here we have my husband’s clothes on top, mine on the bottom (I like wearing dark colours, if you couldn’t tell), some of my shoes on a rack to the right, and the bottom… well, that’s just a mess of shoes, both mine and my husband’s.

My office closet still has unpacked boxes from when we moved in almost two years ago. I also have some dresses hanging in there, along with some other crap that just gets piled into it. The boxes have been shifting a lot and I’m afraid I’ll have a giant mess in there pretty soon, but I’m not motivated enough to do anything about it. A house isn’t a home unless it has at least one extremely unorganized closet… right?

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 23

This is my regular everyday pair of ratty-looking shoes. Yes, they’re old and gross…

Here’s a bonus photo of my favourite pair of heels. I’m not very good at walking in heels and I’m not exactly a shoe person. I’ve had these for years (excuse the dirtyness, but like I said– I wear these) and I still get compliments every time I wear them.

February Photo a Day Challenge: Day 10

By Lindsey | February 15, 2012

Yes, I’m behind on posting. Thank you for noticing! I’ll be catching up over the weekend I’m sure. Until then, here’s a photo of my mug. The theme from February 10 was “self portrait”. I feel weird taking these. I grabbed my Sonic the Hedgehog beanie plush thing that sits on my desk so I wouldn’t look as awkward.

Bonus: in the background you can see my Le Chat Noir poster (one of my favourite works) as well as my art easel, currently awaiting me to paint something on a blank canvas.
