June Bookstagram Challenges (and what I got up to today)
#bookishthisorthat – hosted by:
With each daily prompt, you choose which of the two choices you prefer. So, let’s say the choice was between Game of Thrones and the Lord of the Rings, you choose which one is your favourite and create a photo using your choice (and FYI, as much as I love GoT, it would be LotR all the way!!)
#bookishsummertrinkets – hosted by:
This one’s pretty self-explanatory – you basically post a photo containing the prompt for that day which features the various trinkets/ props that bookstagrammers use to supplement their photos. This one sounded really different and fun so I couldn’t resist taking part (even though originally I was only going to do one challenge).
Day 6 of #bookishthisorthat: Rainbow / Black & White
I tend to prefer black and white overall. I can never seem to take a decent rainbow books photo (though I love looking at other bookstagrammers rainbow photos).
Day 6 of #bookishsummertrinkets: Porcelain/ Pottery
I’m not usually into these kind of figurines personally (though I have admired them from afar) but this #royaldoulton porcelain figure is the exception to the rule. It celebrates my birthday month (June) too so I think it is fitting to choose this as my ‘trinket’ today.
What Else I got up to Today
Working all day today so didn’t get up to much. I was super-excited to see one of my favourite shops Sparks Emporium was having a sale and I picked up a couple of pairs of earrings I’ve had my eye on for a while.
