“Fragmented” was the word that came to mind for Veronika (@kutovakika) when describing her day-to-day life. “Thus, a picture of a puzzle,” she writes in her caption. “Every day might not be a dance on roses, but sometimes the puzzle comes together just right.” 🌹 #WHPmyeveryday

Lines from a poem by Australian poet Erin Hanson provide daily inspiration for Alessandra (@its_me_zazie) and her children: “And you ask, ‘What if I fall?’/ Oh, but my darling,/ What if you fly?” 🕊 #WHPmyeveryday

Every morning for the past five years, photographer Vineet Vohra (@vineet_vohra) visits the bus terminal to observe “different people, buses, changes of weather and changes of mood.” 🚌
Follow along to see more of our favorites from last weekend’s hashtag project, #WHPmyeveryday.

From the golden pellets of sprouted grain they feed their chickens to the ingredients that make it to their kitchen table for supper, nearly every bite of food Kirsten Bradley and her family eats is grown on the sustainable farm where they live in Victoria, Australia. “Homegrown food tends to be very delicious,” she says. Kirsten is part of Milkwood (@milkwood_permaculture), a school where people can learn how to build sustainable farm systems. Along with an extended community of educators, Milkwood offers courses on everything from natural beekeeping and mushroom cultivation to biointensive growing, an organic vegetable growing method designed to maximize harvest in small spaces.
Soon it’ll be growing season in Australia, so Kirsten's family is busy planting tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings and making sure the bees pollinate their fruit trees in hopes of a big summer bounty. And then? They wait. “Growing of food is not an instant process, and it needs patience and perseverance,” she says. “But watching people bloom out of consumerism into makers and doers is really quite beautiful.” #WorldFoodDay

Artist Coco Dávez’s (@cocodavez) “faceless faces” give pop culture icons a new feel. “I started with a portrait of Patti Smith. I was going to throw it away, but before doing that, I had so much paint left over that I did a brushstroke on the face to fill in all of that,” says the artist from Madrid of discovering her signature style. “A lightbulb went off.”
When she was 21, Coco went to live in London with the intention of studying photography, but painting still called to her. Her inspiration? “Artists from the 20th century like Jackson Pollock, Alexander Calder and David Hockney.”

Melissa Ben-Ishay transformed her passion into her livelihood — but it only happened after she came up against some tough times. “In the summer of 2008, I was fired from my job in advertising,” says the 33-year-old from New York City. “Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I went home and I baked four batches of cupcakes (s’more, peanut butter cup, cookie dough and tie-dye).” The very next day, her best friend’s sister shared the treats at the public relations agency where she worked, and the right connections were made. “The rest is history!” says Melissa, who is the president and chief product officer of @bakedbymelissa. The company currently has 13 retail locations in the US plus a nationwide shipping operation.
“There is no better way to learn than through experience and by surrounding yourself with people who have skills that you don’t,” says Melissa of her team. “The opportunity to collaborate with hardworking, passionate, like-minded people is the best part of my job.”
We’re celebrating #NationalDessertDay with the Baked by Melissa team! See more on our Instagram story now.

#Boomerang by @macro.girl
Today’s #BoomerangOfTheWeek is brought to you by Sofia Englund (@macro.girl) with the help of some ferrofluid, a liquid that becomes strongly magnetized in the presence of a magnetic field. She calls it her “weird stress ball” — but to be clear, that’s weird in a good way.
Add #BoomerangOfTheWeek to your next #Boomerang. Yours might show up here on @instagram.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmyeveryday
There’s beauty in the everyday. This week, the goal is to take photos and videos that capture moments from your daily life, as in this featured photo from @_nguan_. Here are a few tips to get you started:
As you go about your routine, note the shapes, shadows and colors you pass by. What details stand out when you pay attention?
Take portraits of the people you regularly spend time with, like your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Use your camera to explain a part of your daily life and culture to someone who lives on the other side of the world.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmyeveryday hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
