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...

I feel like I’m repeating myself, but I can’t believe I’m on Week 12 now – the time has flown! I’m actually finding it a lot harder now, really having to push myself further to go to new places in search of triangles. Around the 50 mark I had a lot of ideas and places that I knew I could visit for triangles but now it’s becoming a proper challenge to post something new and exciting. 80 odd...

Wow, week Eleven – I had to google how to spell eleven, oh dear! Ha After the excitement of last week’s feature in The 100 Day Project’s newsletter, this week has been quite chilled for a change. I’m still debating what I’m going to do when the challenge is finished, but for now I’ll continue to enjoy triangles: 71 – Working in a railway arch has it’s advantages, one being that when the sun is shining...

So this week Instagram made some changes to their layout – the new simplicity looks great, but they’ve removed the header meaning that I now have to make a weekly roundup montage rather than just screenshot the generated one – boo! In terms of #The100DayProject, Week 10 has been the best yet because something really amazing happened! So every Monday there is a #The100DayProject newsletter which features inspiration from #The100DayProject feed and top picks from some...

I can’t believe that it’s June. Summer has officially arrived… and so has my hayfever! It’s been amazing weather this week, but unfortunately I’ve not really been outside to enjoy it because I was ill with a fever Wednesday to Friday. Burning up and being stuck inside when it’s beautiful weather outside is one of the worst things. Luckily I was feeling much better for the weekend so the triangle hunt continued. The show must go...

I feel like I say it every week, but this week really has been a bit of a busy week. I had something planned for almost every evening, which of course is a great excuse to find more triangles. I’m basically half way through now and still enjoying every day (although I keep losing count!), so here’s to passing over into the second half! Days 43 to 49: 43 – A blast from the past – who...

Summer is finally here in week 6 and it’s been hard not to post a blue sky everyday! The weather has been lovely and that makes my triangle hunt even easier. I’m noticing a handful of people that are liking my #100daysoftriangles every single day which is really lovely – it really motivates me to keep searching or the best triangles London has to offer 🙂 36 – I spotted this cool light feature hidden away...

Week 5 takes me to and past a third of the way through #the100dayproject – time flies when you’re having fun! I’m pretty impressed that I have managed to keep going this long actually. Also I’ve kind of set myself an unwritten rule that I won’t post anything other than #100daysoftriangles until I’ve reached the big 100 on 14th July, which is proving hard but I don’t want to mess my feed up do I?...

Week four of #100daysoftriangles has been the busiest yet, with one photo proving very popular. Usually my Instagrams are averaging between 30-40 likes, but this week my phone has been buzzing non-stop with notifications even 3 days after I had posted it. I haven’t worked out where the unexpected popularity came from, but I’m pretty amazed by the 305 likes! Eeeek! All of the triangle love 🙂 So, over a quarter of the way now...

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...

Following on from the valentines trip to Borough Market, Jack, Lucy & I visited the XXX exhibition at Jealous Gallery in Shoreditch. Also known as Triple X, the space was quite small but bursting with passion thanks to the collection of ‘love/anti-love themed’ pieces by artists and designers. I loved the simplicity of ‘Today We Are Going To Learn The Alphabet’ by Mobstr – very striking. Jack recognised the distinctive style of these David Shillinglaw pieces from Moniker Art Fair back in November 2014. I love...

Sometimes we get a bit too wrapped up in our screens – phones, tablets, computers. I love technology but sometimes we need to step back and experience the real world again. Regular readers will know that I’m all for real life books and printed things (you can’t smell or feel the texture of a page through a screen!) and I love getting old fashioned post too so when Tim Easley sent me an envelope I...

With my triangle radar on alert ALL THE TIME I have been spotting people around London with an amazing bag for a while but hadn’t managed to find out where it was from. I was in Selfridges the other week when the triangle radar flagged up again: I had finally found the bags! Designed by Issey Miyake, the collection stems from the idea of “shapes made by chance”, which are innovative shapes that transform according to...
