project 365

 As I don't really do resolutions, I thought I'd do something else instead. Inspired and encouraged by the amazing Kaylah I decided to try my hand at the Project 365. Having had my wee Canon now for almost a year, I still haven't gotten around to properly learning to use all the different settings (haven't even read all through the manual, haha!). So with this project, hopefully, I'll get more use of my camera, learn to take better photos and possibly get more comfortable taking photos in public both just of random things and of myself. I can't promise I'll have something interesting to photograph every day, but so far I have actually remembered to take photos every day, and I'm really happy about that:-) Although, I've mostly remembered about this lil' project only when it's already gotten dark and the lighting definitely hasn't been the best, but you can't have everything in life, eh.

 001 Wee Laura playing with fire. I've actually used up all my candles in a couple of weeks and need to get some new nice-scented ones!

 002 The fanciest Christmas hot chocolate with a candy cane (ha ha). One of the only things I miss from living with le mother is her making me hot chocolates and one of the only food things I miss from Finland is hot chocolate. I just thinks it tastes better over there, or maybe it's the fact that my mum makes it..

 003 Don't actually know if I like this one. It's just a lil' street in Headingley.

 004 Breakfast of the day; porridge with dried blueberries. It doesn't look or sound that special, but it's good. Trust me.

 005 Took some make-up photos, some of which I haven't gotten around to posting yet! But you can see my MAC post here.

 006 I actually took the photos of products on a different day than the one I was wearing them. You can still see my MAC post here.

 007 I had a really exciting day of returning uni books, did a little sales browsing without any massively interesting finds and took a picture of the Parkinson building. My uni is quite pretty.

 008 Taking full advantage of my housemate's Angel collection. I love Buffy (as you might know), but have never seen Angel before this. I'm now about to start season three and I am beyond excited. I thought a series fully focused on him might ruin the dark, mysterious and broody Angel for me which is why I had been a bit hesitant of watching it in the past, but I was so wrong. I'm loving it pretty much as much as Buffy.

009 I've also really been into Matlock lately. I used to watch him with my grandpa when I was little and I just love Ben so much. I do love my old(ish) TV series.

 010 A rainy day spent inside doing uni work. At least my Moomin notebook is pretty!

011 Yet another walk to and from uni, this time to borrow some more books. Because, really, what else would one do on a Sunday afternoon?

That's pretty much what the start of the year has been like for me so far. Not too exciting, but quite enjoyable nonetheless. I'll possibly make this into a weekly thing, so you all get to see what I get up to (or how little I get up to, ha!). Later, lovelies!

These are all lovely! Such a great idea too, since I have a camera that I barely know how to use, I should take note! I had oatmeal with blueberries yesterday, lol. It is a great breakfast!

Lady parisienne - thank you, thank you, chick! x

Georgia said...

Great idea for an alternative to resolutions!

Laura said...
