Have I told you lately how much I love my iPhone? I’m not about to divorce my husband over it (although his lack of iPhone does make him ever so slightly less sparkly in my eyes. Heh.) but I love this stupid piece of technology so much it’s not even funny. Heck, I hardly even use it as a PHONE if I was being honest. I think my most favourite app right now is Instagram (which I have mentioned a few times on here). I’ve been using this free app for over a year and I have enjoyed every second of it. It’s pretty much the sole way I take photos with my phone now. Last month I noticed a few people on IG posting photos for a January Photo a Day challenge. I only clued in towards the end of the month, so I didn’t participate, but I was more than excited to find out that the blogger who hosted the January challenge – FatMumSlim – was doing one again for February!
I present to you the first half of my February photos, based on this challenge. (photos link to the IG original with caption.)

This used to be our anti-valentine tradition. I love Grumpy Bear. #febphotoaday 14. #heart
There you have it. Must admit that having a theme for the day greatly increases my ability to provide a photo a day. I know I tried to do 365 days of photos a few years ago and it didn’t work out, but having the ease of a camera on my phone AND a theme for the day makes this so much easier.
If you have an iPhone, get yourself Instagram and join in the fun! Tag all your photos with #FebPhotoADay and see what others are doing. I’m no professional photographer but it doesn’t matter. Be creative! Have fun!
Other apps that I used to edit/tag the photos are PicFrame, Frametastic (to make collages) and Labelbox (to label them, duh!). These are also free (I rarely pay for apps unless I am 100% certain I will get my money’s worth!). It’s just a fun way to interact and get that creative need fulfilled.
I realize many of you may have already seen these on facebook or twitter and yes, this is a cop-out of a blog post… but Internet, I have been SO BUSY! I have no free time anymore! Ugh! So I wanted to post something. You’ll have to just accept this and hope that I can find time to entertain you with something more exciting soon.
