January Photos

I’m starting yet another series! You guys know how much I love taking photos of things, and they stack up. Not all make it onto the blog, but a lot do. So at the end of each month, I’ll be gathering my favourite photos from the month and dumping them here!

Get ready for a lot of photos!


We had a few day trips this month. Out to Percy Scenic Reserve for a picnic and to see the lighthouse at Cape Palliser.


I shared two new baking posts this month! Both from the Nerdy Nummies recipe book! I made Star Constellation Cookies and Smart Cookies!


This group of photos is for those random photos I’ve taken for the blog, or just in everyday life.


As you can see, I like to take a lot of selfies. Mostly to show how I’m experimenting with makeup. It’s always a fun part of my day! I’ve noticed that I now have a go-to selfie pose. Eyes down and head slightly tilted. Never would have noticed until I looked at all these photos in a row.

Most of these are taken with my DSLR, but a few are from my phone. I always enjoy taking photos more with my DSLR now. The photos always seem to have much more detail.

What did you take photos of this past month?

Also, just a reminder to feel free to leave me any questions which I’ll answer in my Q’n’A when I reach my next milestone! 🙂

Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. Lovely range photos Xx

    1. Thank you! 🙂

  2. I think this is great Angela. I love photos :):) They tell such great stories all on their own. I’d love to see photos with no captions, and try to figure out where, and what the story behind them are, then see how close I was to the right answer :):)

    1. Thanks Margaret! I love photos too! I’m very much a visual person, and also like trying to figure out the story behind a photo 😀

      1. Well, maybe you’ll throw some up and let us guess. :):) See who gets it right, or close to right, or who was most creative :):) But then again, we might be the only 2 who likes guessing what the pictures story is. And since they are your pictures, obviously you’d know, and I’d be the only one having fun LOL

  3. Beautiful photos, Angela. Thank you for sharing them.

    1. Thank you so much Diana 🙂

    1. Thank you! I love the recipes I’ve tried this month! They were so much fun ?

  6. I love this, such a nice way to share your recent pics ? these are great & I’ve definitely been using my new camera for pics too. the phone doesn’t really compare after you’ve used a better camera!

    1. Thanks Jamie! The quality really is so much more amazing with a camera! Especially when you want to do edits, it’s a lot easier with a photo captured with a camera than on your phone ?

      Thanks Chanelle 😀

  11. You don’t know how much I’m dying to build one of my puzzles but little munchkin has tiny hands that lose anything he grabs ?
    Loving all these shots though! I’ve been wanting to do something similar, like a monthly portfolio because I’ve been practicing photographing things often too ?

    1. Hehe, one day you’ll be able to do another puzzle I hope!
