The Camera Within You

Hello everyone.  Recently I started a Tumblr called 'PhotographyBegins' you can check it out here: for my photography.
 I started this site for everyone and anyone who loved photography or had a creative side. 
  For Christmas I received an amazing camera that allows me to take wonderful HD pictures (and videos).  
 What really got me into photography was my godmother.  She is really into photography and even has her own site + calenders! (you can check her inspiring photography site here:  Her photos are really amazing and she has an eye for interesting photos.  Now I have become more visual, and instead of seeing just a tree or leaves on the ground, I see thousands of opportunities for different photographs. 
 There are always scenes to be snapped or strange rare pics to be taken.

In the UK there is an award scheme called the Duke Of Edinburgh Award (D of E). The scheme looks great on your CV, and its also a great personal development program. You can search it on google if you dont know what I'm talking about!  For my D of E, I have chosen photography to be a skill I develop.  So this gives me an extra excuse to take photos instead of doing homework! Joking.....
   Here are just a few of the photos I have taken in the last couple of weeks.  Let me know if you would like more information about anything I have discussed today.
 Happy snapping beauty bloggers! (or photo bloggers)

When Life gives you Lemons, You make LUSH Face Cream?

Recently I have been putting the LUSH 'Enzymion Moisturizer' to the test.  So I have really bad oily skin, and I mean BAD!  1 Hour after my foundations on and I already have the blotting tissues out.  Nothing has worked on my poor little oil ball, so I've been on a hunt for a face cream the will matte my face.... and keep it matte.  Well I have come across a lil' angel sent from above!  LUSH Cosmetics do THE best Cream/Moisturizer that will tip all your other face cream lark.  This Face Moisturizer is infused with tons of Lemons. Lemon products are meant to work wonders on oily skins (not raw real lemons though!). Let me include a little segment from the LUSH website on the little magical product. ''Brightening moisturizer to make oily skin matte and dull skin radiant. Enzymion is for oily skin. Does yours reflect light a couple of hours after cleansing? Do you long to look smooth and matte? Enzymion goes straight for those oils and makes them disappear.''  I put my full trust in the product.  It sells for £13.50 for a 45g jar.  I wouldn't recommend this for sensitive skin types. Its very powerful and full of Lime Oil, Tangerine Oil, Freshly Juiced Papaya and Freshly Juiced Lemons (loads on lemon infusion!).  Use this no more than 4 times a week.  I get eczma around my eyes and I'm prone to breakouts and usingthis moisturizer more than 4 times a week is too over powering.  Get a sample from your store and try it out before purchasing a full pot.  TIPS! : Apply a little all over your face.  Exclude the gentle eye area. DO NOT USE if you have sensitive skin or if you have very bad acne.
  Have any questions? Leave them below.  Want to watch me on youtube? Search PrincessMAC96.

and remember, Beauty comes in all forms not just size 6.
*not saying size 6 isn't beautiful! :)*

 Orange/Coral Lips
Pastel Shades
Florel Shirts and Skirts
Bandana's (sported by me^)
Bold Lips (Reds, Purples - just statement colours)
Statement Jewelry

Here is a really pretty Florel dress. Its perfect for the spring, and it has elastic to sinch you in at the waist.  The pretty, light pink Florel pattern on the cream background is very flattering for this Spring.

This very bright yellow dress from Forever21 is just perfect to add colour to your wordrobe. You will certainly turn heads wearing this bold dress!

Floral is in this Summer so invest is a couple of Floral print tees. Wear them with shorts or jeans, and you will look bang on trend.

Coral/Orange Lips are so on trend this Summer. So go down to the drugstore and pick up a few shades.

The beautiful Taylor Swift sporting a lovely bold red lip. Reds look amazing on pale skin tones.
Check out Michelle Phan's video on how to pick the perfect Red Shade for your skin colour.

 Bold big Jewelry is still on trend.  Go down to your local charity shop and find some Vintage pieces, Vintage is coming back into style.  Get some fabric and tie it around your head. Bandana's are back and are so cool for Spring and Summer.

MAC Quite Cute Collection!

I'ts Officially Spring! I'm loving the sunny weather here, I took this photo in the evening! I'ts still light and sunny at 6.00pm!

MAC Quite Cute Collection.
So the collection came out in my MAC Store today and I loved the nail paints and one of the lipsticks which I bought.  I thought the collection was not the best.  MAC could have added cute designs the the packaging and brought out some eyeshadows with this Pastel Colour collection.
Here is a photo of the Nail Pain in 'Ice Cream Cake'!  Its more pink than the photo shows. Its more like a Bubble gum pink/barbie pink. But oh well you get the idea :)
  I love the lipstick, 'Play Time' Its a beautiful Purple/Pink. I LOVE it!

Watch my YouTube Video! ^
Overall I love the 2 goodies I got from the collection, and I will definatley be wearing them this upcoming Summer!
