February Photo A Day Challenge (Plus A Giveaway Prize for One Lucky Winner!)

Being single on Valentine's Day is never easy, especially with all of our non-single friends on social media flaunting their relationships in our face. When brainstorming what I wanted to write about during the month of February for Her Campus, I figured why not create something that will distract me and other girls like me from the fact that no one is buying us a box of chocolates this Valentine's Day.

I combined my need for a distraction with my love for Instagram and created a February Photo-A-Day Challenge, except it's like no photo challenge you've ever done before. I've tried others in the past but they always expect me to be a bit too creative, they're too redundant or after I while I just get bored.

My roommate and I put our brains together to come up with the funniest, one of a kind and never seen before daily challenges that will keep you from quitting before the candy hearts go on clearance. Nothing is ever much fun if you have to do it alone though, so I reached out to some of the bloggers from the Her Campus Blogger Network and a few girls have decided to take part in it as well! (Yay!)

Her Campus UC Riverside's Page
Along with me, (the mastermind), and Her Campus UC Riverside, the following blogs will be taking part in the photo a day challenge. I definitely recommend you check out their blogs, each have their own personal style and will be writing about the challenge along with HCUCR.
» Areeba from I Have A Messy Bun
» Dylan from Sartorial Spice

Her Campus Montclair will also be partnering up with Her Campus UCR thanks to Dylan who is the Social Media Director for that branch.

Besides this being tons of fun, for every photo you post with the hashtag #HCUCRVDAY, your chances of winning the $20 gift card will increase!

Below is the photo with every day's challenge. Typically with Instagram challenges like this you post this photo on the first day of the month along with that day's photo. This way your friends and followers know what the heck you are talking about and can participate too!

Follow me on Instagram @whenlifegivesyourubi to see what I'm posting!

After showing the challenges to a few people I realized that not all are self explanatory, so here are some explanations for some of the challenges that might not make immediate sense.
» Feb 1: If you had your own television show, what song would play during the opening credits?!
» Feb 7: Cant reach the remote? Snap a photo of it! Photograph the first world problems that you struggle with every day...
» Feb 9: MCM Black History Month Edition is just like every other Man Crush Monday except you must crush on someone who identifies as African American, it is Black History Month ya'll.
» Feb 10: Google this, trust me you'll be laughing in seconds!
» Feb 11: Pick an object you wouldn't mind spending the rest of your life with.
» Feb 18: If I am what I eat, then I'm a dinosaur chicken nugget. Rawr. Photograph the one food you wouldn't mind being made of.
» Feb 26: Same as February 9th, but this time it's Woman Crush Wednesday!
Every week Her Campus UCR will be posting a round up of their favorite photo submissions for that week, so the more creative you are the better chance you have of getting a shout out on our page! I too will be posting some of my favorite submissions on this page.

Make sure to tell all your friends about the February Photo-A-Day Challenge, don't forget to hashtag #HCUCRVDAY with your posts and good luck! I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!!
