31 day challenge!

I saw this really cool idea for a 31 day challenge on Selina's blog The Flying Saucer. Okay well technically it's a fashion blogger challenge, and I'm not one of those, (I'm not sure what kind of blogger I am but we'll go with personal blogger for the time being yes?), but I still want to do it, or at least attempt. I love things like this but never really follow through.

Anyways my goal is to do as many of them as I can, and it might just be a photo a day on Instagram (username is lisamello) and I'll round them up here maybe every week, rather than post every day since that doesn't seem that likely to be honest. 

So here is the list of challenges.

1st. Your wardrobe
2nd. You have the most...
3rd. Something you're wearing for the first time
4th. Your favourite print
5th. Your best bargain

6th. Something out of your comfort zone but you love it
7th. A special occassion outfit
8th. Something you forget you have but love
9th. The item at the top of your wishlist
10th. Cute tights
11th. Your spring essential
12th. The outfit you've had the best times in
13th. Your lazy day at home with style (in front of your housemates/bf/visitor) outfit
14th. The item that was hardest to hunt down/buy
15th. Nail art/your favourite polish and your nail varnish collection 
16th. A customised item
17th. Something you wear when it's sunny
18th. Your brightest lipstick
19th. An article of clothing/jewellery that instantly makes you feel great
20th. Shoes you love but hardly wear
21st. Something that is your favourite brand
22nd. A piece of clothing or jewelry that was a gift
23rd. Something from your favourite store
24th. The item that brings all the boys to the yard
25th. A totally YOU outfit
26th. What's in your bag
27th. Inspired by your style icon
28th. Something everyone has now
29th. Face of the day
30th. Pretty hair
31st. The thing you're obsessed with at the moment!

I didn't manage to do it yesterday since I was going to do it after work, but then I stayed on till just after midnight and by the time I came home I was too tired so I've done the first two today. The photo at the top is of my wardrobe, which was the first day. It's got drawers on the bottom which are broken and empty, and only fits about a third of my clothes into it. I have an out of date Chinese calender I got for free on one door since its pretty and its easy to find out someones Chinese sign if I so wish. But I should probably change it soon. I also have some china ballerina slippers which you can barely see that I've had since I was about 8, which were given to me by my nana.

Above is a picture of inside my wardrobe, and I've already mentioned it holds about a third of my clothes, maybe even less! I need a bigger wardrobe or less clothes. It's mainly dresses hanging up, and I got that fabric compartment hanger thing from Ikea, it has mainly tops or jumpers in it which I hardly ever wear. At the bottom of the wardrobe I have a tesco bag full of shoes, and its really hard to take a picture of my wardrobe as there's a wall right behind me. I store the rest of my clothes in those mutli draw storage things, my mums wardrobe, suitcases, back of my door, a chair and of course on my floordrobe.  Looking at the above picture I really need to sort my clothes out, since I haven't worn half of those in over a year!

For day two, which is today, it was 'You have the most...' and I decided I have the most tights! This is a full drawer full of tights and I have more in various places too. I hardly wear these tights, I usually stick to black tights or leggings and I can't resist buying pretty tights! I used to keep them all neat but then I don't know what happened, I'm messy!! This is also something that needs to be sorted out. I should have tidied up beforehand but then I might never do this challenge, my bedrooms a crazy tiny room full of stuff!
Anyway I won't be doing this every day but I'll do a few days in one go or weekly roundups, but I will be taking pictures every day on my Instagram. If you feel like doing it too, join in, better late than never :)
