D A I S I E S

Products used: Miss Sporty Black Nail Polish, Rio Yellow & White Nail Art Polishes and Dotting tool.

Daisies seem to be a big thing right now. I keep seeing them on a lot of clothing and that reminded me of this nail art that I saw a while ago and have been wanting to try for ages. I think it went okay for a first attempt, even though it smudged a little. I'm not a fan of black nails so I didn't do it on my own nails instead I used my nail display wheel.

I painted the nail black first, took about 3 coats to get it thick enough, then i poured a little of the yellow and white polish into a pot (seperated) and used the dotting tool to make the circles. I've had dotting tools for a while now, I got 5 for 99p from eBay and they actually work really well, you just dip them into the polish and simply make dots.

Product Spotlight: Olive Oil Heat Protector

ORS Olive Oil Heat Protection Hair Serum

I'm not usually one to share hair products on my blog mainly because there aren't that many that I use but I have been looking to get this product for ages and after finally purchasing it, it will forever be in my life.
A long while back, I asked a girl that I followed on tumblr (can't find her page anymore), who had the loveliest long hair, for some tips on how she kept her hair in good condition and this is a product she recommended to me. Now, I never use heat protectors which is bad but I am glad I got round to purchasing this. I used it in my hair yesterday when straightening it and I seriously don't know what I was doing without it before. It straightened my hair so much nicer and left it feeling soft and moisturised. I'm trying to use heat protecter now because I want my hair to grow a bit more before I cut the ends. This product I highly recommend for girls with afro type hair as it is quite oily. It smells like olive oil and only cost me £3.99 which is worth it for how it leaves my hair afterwards.

Occasionally I Take Shots

Shot by Me | Styling & Model - @taylahelaine | Makeup - @doyinrosemua

Something I haven't done for a while on my blog is share my photography work.
In case you don't know I currently study Fashion Styling & Photography and studied Photography previously at ALevels. It is a extreme love, occasional hate interest of mine. I've wanted to be a fashion photographer for a while now but have been put off by uni projects and lack of motivation. However, my friend contacted me the other day and asked if I wanted to shoot some photos for her styling portfolio. I decided to push myself and go for it, especially as I'm supposed to remaining in touch with my creative side this holidays (which has failed miserably) and I need to update my photography portfolio. I have to say this is probably some of my best work yet and I am very proud of it. My friend styled & modelled it and her friend did the makeup, which she taught herself from watching YouTube!! Then I took the shots, there were so many to edit so I had to choose my favourites. I picked out some for this post but I'm planning to make some form of online portfolio of my work altogether, so watch this space for that.
Hope you like them.
