Testing Out My New Nikon Camera And Comparing To The Iphone 5 Camera

Sorry i haven't posted a post on my blog for ages! I've just been involved with my school work recently, with going back and starting my GCSE'S and all. Of course I will try and post more regally, however, I'm behind in some course work and school work already! so, unfortunately my posts to my blog will be cutting down a little from three a week to maybe only one or so. I'm open to any blog posts requests, so, if you have any ideas on what I could post about, feel free to leave a little comment below. 

This blog post is going to be a little short and not very interesting, so, if you're not into photography, feel free to check back next week where ill be posting about something else!

Recently my dad brought me a new camera, because, I chose photography for one of my GCSE's. In this post I've been going around bristol and testing out my photography skills!

 (Excuse the tan and messy room!)

I'm pretty happy with some of the photos I took ... Especially the first photo, a close up of a flower, all photos I took were taken either on my iPhone 5 camera, or, a Nikon camera. These are all my own photos, I'm happy to let people use them for other purposes, however, It would be nice if you could send my a quick email letting me know you're going to use my photos :) my email is:

Oreo and Milk/Vanilla Ice-Cream

To make your oreo milkshake you need:

1) One glass or more for however many people you're making the milk-shake for.
2) One oreo pack
3) Cookie dough ice-cream or plain vanilla ice-cream 
4) one bottle of milk
5) one bowl for crushing the oreo's in
6) spoons for crushing the oreo and an extra spoon for getting the ice-cream out of the tub

The first step you need to do is put about half the package of oreos in the bowl 

Then start to crush them!

Keep crushing them!

Until they look around about the same size as they are in this picture! 

next add a few spoon falls of milk

And then next, add the cookie dough ice-cream

Now, you need to blend the oreo mixture a little bit!

I put in some ice cube's to make the milkshake a little cooler in temperature.

Then I crushed a little more oreo's, (about 4-5 or less) this time into bigger pieces to place on-top of the milkshake.

once you're happy that your milkshake is blended enough to your standers, you can start pouring it into the glass!

Try not to over fill the glass!

Next remember those bigger pieces of oreo's you crushed up earlier?

You can add them to the top of your milkshake!

Your milkshake should look a little like this!

And finally you can add some straws for decoration!

Poka-Dot Pastel Nail Tutorial

This post is another follow on to the nail tutorials I have been recently posting about. If you have been reading my past few blog posts, you will know about my bad habit of bitting my nails. I've only recently discovered that the crave for nail bitting goes away when my nails are painted and comes right back when there not painted, so, now I have to wear nail polish all the time! 

Tip: If you're going through the same habit of bitting your nails as I am, try and paint your nails and see if that stops the crave to bit them!

To achieve the look of poka-dot pastel nails you first of all, need to use two colours for an under coat, the first colour I used was a blue nail polish called "Uptown blue" super stay 7 days and is from the brand Maybelline

The second colour I used was a purple nail polish called "Surreal" super stay 7 days, again, this nail polish is from the brand Maybelline.

I painted each colour on alternative nails, so, the colour patten would goblue, purple and so on...

✮ The Purple nail polish is called "Surreal" ✮ The Blue nail polish is called "Uptown blue" 

Next, I painted the little pink dots on each nail, this can be done randomly and the dots can vary in size. I quite like the look of the dots varying in size instead of all looking the same size it gives a little edge and creativeness to the look. The nail polish colour I used was a pastel pink, I can't seem to find the brand name on the container, it must of rubbed off, but, I did find the same colour. Its another nail polish from the brand maybelline super stay 7 days.

Then I finished off the look with applying some clear shiny nail polish. I always finish off with a layer of clear nail polish for any look, I just like the look of shiny nails especially in the sun, when it glistens
