Project 366: January

If you follow me over on instagram you may have noticed I’m doing Project 366 this year. Normally known as Project 365 (but this year is a leap year), Project 366 is where you share a photo online every day for a year.

I wanted to continue to improve my gram game this year and what better way to do it than to practice, practice, practice. It has been a challenge thinking of a new and interesting thing to post every day, particularly as I have been on holiday and spending a lot of time chilling at home.

Each month I am going to do a roundup of my Project 366 posts here on the blog, highlighting my favourite posts of the month, so here’s January!


I honestly can’t believe how fast this month has gone. It’s been equally busy and not: I’ve worked a reasonable amount whilst also having a lot of down time and two weekends away. Uni starts back in three weeks which is crazy given that I had a four month break. It’s definitely going to be hard to get back into the routine of study, but I’m honestly a little bored.


Sorry I’ve been so sporadic on the blogging front, I think I am going to try a one post a week schedule, aiming for quality and consistency over quantity. I will soon be juggling full time study, 20 hours work and two volunteer roles whilst still trying to have a social life; so unfortunately blogging has to take a back seat.


The biggest highlights of my month came at the start and end of the month. I made two mini getaways to stay with my friend Rachel at her bach in Takamatua, Banks Peninsula. I was there for New Year’s Eve as well as this past weekend to celebrate Rachel’s birthday.

Her family’s bach is the cutest little spot, close to Akaroa if you need the shops but also perfect for complete relaxation.

The bubbles were the best present and kept a group of 20 year olds very entertained.

Adventuring with my twinny up to Victoria Park to get photos for my Things to Do in Christchurch post. This photo also won me $100 phone credit so double win.

We had a week of rain so I entertained myself at the newly reopened Christchurch Art Gallery, more to come on that soon!

I’ve really enjoyed doing Project 366 so far, it’s awesome to look back and remind myself what I did every day.

Happy February everyone!
