It’s time to unleash your creativity on the world around you! Next time you leave the house, try and capture a snapshot of the people or things you interact with along the way. Every person place or object you encounter has a story to tell. You could consider where and how you use your belongings outside of the home and how that context changes along with your surroundings. This week challenge yourself to take an impromptu photo and see how creative can you get with the book you read on your commute, your handbag or the coffee in your hand. Hit the road, keep it candid and share a scene from your daily life.
Ways to challenge yourself this week:
Think outside your house: the things you see and experience on the go
The essential things you take on the go: your reusable coffee cup or water bottle, a magazine or book, headphones and sunglasses
Document your morning coffee ritual
Perhaps your local coffee shop has a pretty floor, cool wall or beautiful aesthetic...take a candid photo
Shoot a looking down photo of your favourite handbag, on the go coffee or shoes
Stop and take a snap of that mural you love, perhaps a stop motion of you walking past
How to participate

Meet your Mentor: Kelly Williams
Our mentor this week certainly has a talent for the candid. As well as doing amazing flatlays, Kelly from @myscandistyle cleverly incorporates her active and ‘on the go’ lifestyle with her little fam bam. From holiday snaps, coffee dates and wall pics with her little man, Kelly shares those everyday moments that document her lifestyle. These add a human authenticity to Kelly’s Instagram that we can relate to and allows us a peek into her world. Read our interview with her and let’s peek into yours too!
So hit the road or footpath, keep it candid and share a scene from your daily life. Let’s get going!
