#HaveFunBeSilly Colour Lovers February Instagram Challenge

#HaveFunBeSilly Colour Lovers February Instagram Challenge

For me, January was very lacking in motivation and inspiration so I decided to set myself a photo challenge for February to add a little extra fun, silliness and colour into my day and into yours! Then I thought it would be awesome if you guys would do it along with me so we can support and push each other to keep it up! Are you up for it?

I’ve created the #HaveFunBeSilly colour lovers February Instagram challenge with a prompt for each day in February – it’s a short month so you only have to keep it up for 28 days, haha, but of course please feel free to dip in and out as you feel and you can follow along on the #HaveFunBeSilly hashtag to chat to old friends and make new ones and introduce a whole heap of fun and colour to your Instagram feeds.

What do I do?

// Post the graphic to your Instagram to let your friends know you’re taking part in the challenge and encourage them to join you. (‘Right click, save as’ or ‘ctrl click, save image as’ to download the image or press and hold over the image on an iPhone)
// Post a picture each day in February that follows the prompt. It’s all about interpretation so if you feel your photo is inspired by the prompt then it is! Anything goes (except rudeness, racism, pornography and all that bad stuff!).
// Make sure you add the #HaveFunBeSilly hashtag on every photo you share that relates to the challenge so we can all have a peek into your life and become pals!

You can also follow me @onetenzeroseven for a reminder to post every day and if you find yourself stuck for ideas, just pop along to the hashtag and see what other people are posting or comment on my Instagram and I’ll do my best to help you!

I can’t wait to add more colour to February with you guys joining me on the colour lovers February Instagram challenge!
Loves x xx

What are you listening to?

The Shins. You know them?


You gotta hear this one song. It’ll change your life. I swear.

– Garden State

Did anyone else fall in love with The Shins after watching Garden State? I was going through a really bad time when it came out and the whole ‘screaming into the abyss’ thing was so relatable, it hurt. I used to listen to The Shins on my long commute into my retail job when all my friends were going away to University and I was just lost and still living at home. Music was my escapism.

Fast forward to last September and I got a message from a friend that he was in the country playing with The Shins at the Village Underground in London so I jumped on a train to catch up over dinner and he got me tickets for the show. The coolest part, though, was that he also got me a photo pass so I could take in my DSLR!!

I was really nervous taking photos and I did get pulled up by the security staff during the support act for using my camera, but I had a quick word with a big scary dude during the break and showed him my pass and he sort-of apologised. It was really fun taking proper photos at the gig, but really really hard too. When I took a photography course a couple of years ago my tutor was an ex-gig photographer and even he told me how difficult it is – such a fun challenge for my rusty photography skills though!

I don’t think I could do gig photography professionally or be bothered to go through the stress of trying to sell my photos, but I’d love to do it again as a bit of a hobby and get some of my photos printed up for our walls at home. The first and third photos are my favourites!

The gig was amazing and the Village Underground is one of the coolest gig venues I’ve ever been to with huge tunnels in an old coal store beneath an old railway viaduct in Shoreditch. The venue is topped with a bunch of old London Underground trains that now house a creative community working alongside each other.

The funny thing is listening to The Shins really did change my life – or did my life change while I was listening to The Shins? Either way, it got me through some really dark times! Looking back I don’t even seem like the same person I was then and I love moments like these that really solidify how far you’ve come. I wish I could go back and tell myself, on one of those depressing journeys to work, that future me was actually kind of kick-ass. Hah!┬áLoves x xx
