I've been totally slacking at making these Instagram photos posts so I thought I would put my pictures from the last month or so into one post!

Just a little about my life, my college course is going really well! I can't wait to pass it and find a job in the beauty industry. I recently passed 2 practical assessments which was really motivating to finish this course. It's funny how waxing someone's leg can be so fun haha! 
You also may notice that I don't post as much as I used to when I started blogging. The main reason is rubbish winter lighting! Whenever I try and take pictures for posts, they always come out looking dark or weird looking. I know I should invest in a day light bulb, but I haven't got round to it. Do you have any tips about photographing in bad lighting?

  12. Do you ever try editing your photos? It's really easy on a sitelike anymaking as you don't even have to have an account, and you just play with the saturation/contrast/brightness etc. I find itmakes a huge difference, although it won't do the job if there was no light at all when you took the picture. Thanks for the day bulb idea, hadn't thought of that!

    1. Yeah, most of my photos are edited :) It's just I don't like to over-edit photos, so if the picture doesn't come out in the right lighting in the first place, I usually don't bother using it! xx
