March in Pictures Photo Challenge #marchinpictures #photography

That’s another week completed of my March in Pictures Challenge! How did you get on? I’ve loved seeing everyone’s pictures on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and thanks for tagging me in. If you want to take a look just follow the hashtag #marchinpictures. There’s still plenty of topics left for you to get involved.

12th March – Technology: I wouldn’t get very far as a writer without my computer! It’s my favourite bit of tech.


13th March – Day: Here’s a picture of me on International Women’s Day in my role as bell monitor for the Socially Shared Business Support Network café conversations event. I take my role very seriously!


14th March – Night: A beautiful sunset over Lake Garda from the pier in Sirmione


15th March – Red: I’m thoroughly enjoying my gluten-free diet at the moment and adding bright red berries to my GF pancake makes me very happy 🙂


16th March – Circles: As part of my recent personal development coaching my lovely coach recommended that I find something to do that will help me switch off. I love my adult colouring books and not only did it help chill me out, it also contains lots of circles


17th March – Landscape: This picture was taken at Devil’s Den in Arkansas and has to be my favourite landscape of all.



Want to join in for the next few weeks? Here are the topics we’ve got left.

March in Pictures Photo Challenge Week 1 #photography #marchinpictures

How did you get on with the photo challenge this week? I’ve had great fun seeking out some of my favourite things to complete the first few days. Huge thanks to everyone who has joined in on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and for tagging me in. I loved seeing your pictures.

1st March – Selfie with a Smile: I was fortunate to be running a networking session for Socially Shared in Stratford on the 1st March so I had plenty of willing victims volunteers to join me for my selfie with a smile.

2nd March – Favourite Meal: I’m currently on an elimination diet for an autoimmune disease so I’m discovering new recipes to try that are gluten, wheat, egg, and dairy free but still delicious. This one has to be my new favourite Friday night supper (Goan Chicken Curry and Cauliflower Rice).

3rd March – Favourite Place: There’s only one place I could share for this photograph – Kenilworth Castle!


4th March – Favourite People: Family means the world to me and making memories with my kids is time well spent – especially on a snow day!

5th March – Favourite Outfit: I haven’t bought any new clothes for ages as I’d put loads of weight on. However, the plus side of being on the elimination diet is weight loss so I decided to treat myself. Spotted this gorgeous dress in Long Tall Sally and couldn’t resist it. It’s also something out of the ordinary for me as I tend to live in black clothes and my Timberland boots! (Thanks to my daughter for the photo shoot and to Luna for the photo bomb!!)

March in Pictures #Photography Challenge #marchinpictures

What does happiness mean to you? For a long time I thought it was something I needed to obtain, but after many years of self-work and personal development, I realised that happiness came from within.

With this awareness, I tried to discover ways to enhance those feelings of joy and contentment in everyday life. I guess this is why I enjoy taking part in challenges so much as they push me out of my comfort zone and help me to live in the moment.

In January I shared my Daily Tasks to Improve Your Life series, and in February I shared a Self-Improvement Challenge. March is a month where we start to think about warmer weather and spring cleaning. We witness the marvel of new beginnings in the shoots unfurling from the ground. The days are lighter and longer, and people start to smile more as they soak up the spring sunshine.

A few years ago I took part in the 100 Happy Days Challenge on Instagram. It’s a wonderful way of noticing what’s going on around you and learning to live in the moment. The rules are simple: share one photograph every day for 100 days that makes you happy and add the #100HappyDays hashtag.

For March I wanted to embrace this challenge but offer up some structure. With the 100 Happy Days Challenge, you are in charge of what you post, and there were a few days when I took a random picture of the cat or the TV because I hadn’t done anything worth remembering.

I thought it might be a fun task to follow a plan. So, below you’ll find a month’s worth of photography topics.

The challenge is this: take a picture every day on the appropriate topic and either share it on your Facebook page, Twitter feed, Instagram account, or blog. Add the hashtag #marchinpictures (MARCH IN PICTURES). Feel free to tag me in on any of my platforms or add your images in the comments on each of my weekly blog posts.

Have fun with this challenge and remember to stay in the moment. Let your creativity shine!
