#2014Blogger Challenge: Photo Challenge

In keeping with my April goal to take more blog pictures, this time the #2014BloggerChallenge was a 'photo an hour' post. I love reading these posts on other blogs and it was the perfect way to encourage me to take more photos.

This post is a little bit late because I was going for afternoon tea at the Dorchester (very posh London hotel for those who may not have heard of it) for my friend B's birthday on Saturday, and I thought that would make for a good post as I hadn't been doing anything very exciting where I could take photos in recent weeks. So with apologies for the delay, here's what my Saturday looked like...

8 AM: Deciding what colour to paint my nails (plus the lovely flowers I got from work as a 'thank you'!)

9 AM: Walking into Blackheath to pick up a parcel...

10 AM: ...and here's what was in it!

11 AM: Coffee and magazines whilst waiting for my hair to dry.

12 PM: Deciding what to wear! (I went with the grey floral dress in the end.)

1 PM: Catching up on my (very neglected!) Bloglovin reading list whilst getting ready.

2 PM: Pretty new floral buttons on my spring coat.

3 PM: Outside the Dorchester!

4 PM: Mmmm, afternoon tea...

Annoyingly my phone ran out of battery after leaving the hotel, so I didn't manage to take any photos of our trek through the West End to a cocktail bar, but I really enjoyed doing this challenge - it gave me the opportunity to get a bit more confident with my photography and I liked the idea of sharing a day from my life. I'm definitely going to do this type of post again more in the future!

Have you ever done a 'photo an hour' post? If so leave me a link in the comments, I'd love to see it!


  1. Your afternoon tea looks delicious. I really need to do a photo an hour post but I'll be lucky if I manage to get more than 3 photos. I'll have to set a load of reminders on my phone to help my sieve like memory along.

    1. Thank you! It was really lovely, not cheap but definitely worth it for a one-off special occasion. I had to set reminders as well to make sure I took the pictures on time!

  2. This seems like such a fab idea :) Thanks for sharing. Your bag is gorgeous too! :)
