October Calendars

It seemed last month that the calendars went down pretty well so I have made a few more for October. 

There are once again two different sizes one of which is ideal for a desktop and the other can be printed and pinned on a wall. 

I have also created a phone background which can be used also. It's a floral number with the hope it brightens up the gloomy October days. 

If you click on the image it will open up a larger version and then right click and save as. You are then free to use it on which ever computer or screen you like. 

The next version is ideal if you wish to print it out and put in on the wall or notice board. You can follow the same instructions above. This will be ok to print out at size A3 or below. 

For the phone background you can save it on your computer and transfer it across of simply save it on the mobile device. 

You are FREE to use these for personal use and not for resell. All I ask is you follow my accounts on social media as a little thank you. 

September Instagram Themes

Before the Summer arrived I had been coming up with a theme each week for people to use on Instagram. Then things got busy and it slowly slipped my mind and I stopped doing this. 

What better time to start than at the beginning of the month? The difference this time is I will announce all the themes for the month in one go. I will still collate my favourite photos from the week but at least everyone will know the themes in advance. 

Here are the themes for September so tag away the photos that fit the theme and I will look forward to seeing them. 

September Calendars

I thought for September I'd try something a little bit different. I've created a couple of calendars for you to download and use. 

There is two different sizes available. The first is a simple one for your computer screen. 

If you click on the image it'll open up a larger version and then right click and save as... you are then free to us it on which ever computer or screen you like. 

The next version is ideal if you wish to print it out and put in on the wall or notice board. You can follow the same instructions above. This will be ok to print out at size A3 or below. 

You are FREE to use these for personal use and not for resell. All I ask is you follow my accounts on social media as a little thank you. 

Instagram Theme - #PhotalifeB_W

I confess last week's Instagram theme of #PhotalifeFUN was picked because we knew we'd be at Disney so it seemed the perfect week to use it. 

My personal favourite photo from the week is of course from Disney and it's this one as it signalled the start of our adventure. 

I loved seeing other peoples take on the FUN theme and these are my favourites from the week. 

This week's theme is Black & White so please tag your photos with #PhotalifeB_W and I look forward to seeing what people come up with. 

Instagram Theme - #PhotalifeFUN

The theme for last week was #PhotalifeNATURE which I enjoyed as lots of my photos generally feature this theme. 

My favourite photo of my own was this one. 

There was lots of beautiful photos this week and I'm really grateful to everyone that joins in and I hope people enjoy it. 

These are my favourites from this past week. 

I'm hoping for blue skies this #bankholidayweekend! Do you have any plans?

Now it's time to announce the theme for this week and I've gone for something a little different and it's #PhotalifeFUN. Tag your Instagram photos that fit that theme. 

Instagram Theme - #PhotalifeSEASIDE

Tick tock the weeks fly past, the theme for last week was #PhotalifeREFLECTION which was a tricky theme but there's no point being boring and plain. 

My own favourite photo was this one from Pells Pool. 

Now time to pick my favourite photos from the people who joined in over on Instagram. 

Seriously incredible scenes from earlier today at Sheffield Park Gardens. 😍🌳

Righty time for this week's theme and it's #PhotalifeSEASIDE, to join in just tag your photos that fit the theme. 

Thank you to everyone that joins in. 

Instagram Theme - #PhotalifeREFLECTION

Ah what a beautiful week, the weather has been amazing and it's felt like Summer. The theme last week was #PhotalifeWALK and the photos were amazing this week and it was so difficult to pick my favourites. My favourite photo from the theme was this one. 

The photos that I've picked this week are from people that may not have been picked before, the idea is to try and introduce you to new accounts to follow. 

This mornings walk was leading us up high to the church at #breedononthehill What a wonderful path we had to spur us on #photalifewalk

The theme for this week has been picked by Laura and it's #PhotalifeREFLECTION so pop over and join in by adding the tag to your photos. 

Instagram Theme - #PhotalifeWALK

The theme for last week was #PhotalifeGreen and it was interesting to see what people came up with. There was some stunning natural photographs and it was difficult to pick my favourites. The favourite photo of mine was this one from the weekend. 

And now it's time to select four other photos that I enjoyed from the people who joined in. 

And another #minibeast 🐝 #bee #flowers #nature #bug #insect #photalifegreen #savethebees

Righty time for this week's theme which is going to be #PhotalifeWALK, something a little bit different but what's the point in being the same and safe. 

Instagram Theme - #PhotalifeSIGNS

Last week's theme was #PhotalifeCOUNTRY and it was good to see people out and about. The weather wasn't brilliant with us but we still managed a few photos that seemed to fit the theme. 

My personal favourite photo was this one from up on Ashdown Forest. 

Now time for my favourite ones of people that joined in. 

The #peakdistrict really is #perfect for #walking #instapic #photooftheday #photalifecountry

The theme I've picked for this week is #PhotalifeSIGNS, make of this what you want. It can be signs of Spring, road signs or anything else that comes to mind. 

Instagram Theme - #PhotalifeCOUNTRY

I am enjoying coming up with a theme every week on Instagram and last week may have been my favourite so far. The theme was #PhotalifeCOLOUR and it was so good to see so many colourful photos across Instagram. 

It was so difficult to pick my favourite photos so showcase I really could have picked them all. This is my favourite photo that I linked up with this week. 

Now for the selection of photos that I enjoyed the most. Sorry if I didn't pick yours but they were all amazing. 

The flowers at @waddesdonmanor_nt were just beautiful to look at today #colours #ntchallenge #photalifecolour

This week's theme is #PhotalifeCOUNTRY, over the next few weeks I want to take the themes out of peoples comfort zones and see what we can all create.
