I’ve had this post saved in my drafts for ages (you can tell because look, it’s the old-style vsco screenshots!) but found myself too caught up in #The100DayProject to finish it. Now that I’ve posted all 100 days and #100DaysofGraphique is done and dusted, I thought it was time to get this one ticked off my never-ending to-do list. One step at a time, hey? You might have seen this kind of post from other...

AND BREATHE. #100DaysofGraphique is complete! High five Some days I would think to myself; ‘This is hard, so why am I doing this?’ and this smug feeling is definitely the answer. 100 posts and 12,030 likes later (yes I just went through all 100 photos and added them all up) the project is finished! It’s a mix of emotions; pride, relief and sadness. Sure, I’m really proud of finishing again but let me tell you...

74 days ago I began my second year of #The100DayProject, choosing to attempt #100DaysofGraphique after a pretty successful #100DaysofTriangles project in 2015. I would say that if you follow me on Instagram you would definitely remember, but with the algorithm who knows if I show up in your feed anymore!? But anyway, although I’ve not really been shouting about it and giving you guys regular updates on my blog (last year I did weekly round ups!)...

As I mentioned in my last post… #The100DayProject is back for 2016! If you don’t remember, in 2015 I challenged myself with #100DaysofTriangles and it went quite well, (if I do say so myself) so no pressure for this year to go well then! After a lot of discussion on Twitter, for 2016 I have decided on #100DaysofGraphique: What can you expect? The unexpected.  I actually am not sure myself, yet. My initial thoughts are graphic...

Some of you might remember that last year I challenged myself with #The100DayProject? For 100 days I posted a photo featuring a triangle to my Instagram account, with weekly round ups on the blog too; #100daysoftriangles was probably the biggest challenge I’ve ever set myself. But I’m so glad that I did… I’ve managed to keep my blog running for 7 years now, but other than that I’ve never really stuck at anything for a...

Last week I gave you 21 24 amazing Creative Instagrammers that would guarantee endless scrolling & fill your Instafeed with inspiration. This week I’m looking a bit deeper into Instagram: hashtags. #. Hashtag. What is a hashtag? It’s a descriptive word which can be used to group and collect other similar pieces of information. You’ve probably come across Hashtags on Twitter, Facebook and TV – most events/programmes have one. Hashtags are a great way for searching/ directing...

Following on from my creative Blogger and Youtuber recommendations… Hands up if you love Instagram? Me too guys, me too. I spend way too many hours scrolling through inspirational imagery – I don’t know why but there’s something quite addictive about Instagram. Some people post fluffy bunnies, some post cars. Some feeds have a look and feel – a theme, and others are… a selfie-loving, filter-overloaded mess. I’ll admit, it is a bit sad that Instagram isn’t so...

After a positive start in week one, at the end of week 2 I am already feeling the pressure/finding it hard to photograph triangles in beautiful ways. Sure, there are lots of triangles that I walk past but making them ‘Instagram worthy’ is a whole different story. However I love a challenge and am spurred on by your support – I’ve had people sending me ‘I saw this & thought of you’ messages this week...

So I think that the first week of #the100dayproject has gone quite well. Luckily I’ve been quite busy going places/doing things which makes it a lot easier to find interesting triangles, but I’m having to train myself to be on the look out constantly. If you’re looking, you can discover lots of triangles in our daily lives, and I want the project to have a good balance of triangles that I create and find! 01...

It’s a last minute decision, but I am joining #the100dayproject – tipped over the edge by Sophie from The private life of a girl. Created by Elle Luna, #the100dayproject is a challenge running via instagram encouraging people to make/create/draw/do something for 100 days straight and share it. Read all about it on The Great Discontent – including reasoning, instructions and inspiration. Today, Monday 6th April, is day #1 (I’m cutting it fine) and day #100 will be...

So you’re looking for inspiration but where do you start to look? Well, chances are that your 1st stop is probably google, but how many other people have googled the same thing as you? Plenty. Which makes it hard to find something a little bit special and ‘out there’ – you want to find something different and exciting, right? Also, as great as Google is, the success of your search depends on the wording you...

After a lovely Valentines weekend at home in the Fens, I headed back to London with a bunch of gorgeous roses and a smile: Just when I thought I had sussed most of the area around the studio out, I stumble across a secret garden in the middle of the city: I bet this is amazing in the summer, especially for a few cocktails after work! Southwark, the tube closest to the studio, gets brownie...

If you follow me on twitter you might have noticed that I’ve become a total hipster and jumped on the instagram bandwagon. I’ve joined the 21st century and have ‘swapped’ my blackberry for an apple (hence the post title).                I’ve had my iphone for about 3 weeks now and I love it. It’s been a busy few weeks  – I’ve been exploring Lincoln, Sheffield, Manchester and London and instagramming anything...
