How to Make Models Feel Comfortable Before a Fashion Photo Shoot

When working with models in order to produce some great product images that will help your product sell, it’s important that the model feels comfortable, at ease and relaxed – if not, this will show in the photographs. Working with models can often be a challenge if you’re not used to it, and models without masses of experience are often prone to feeling more uncomfortable than those who’ve gotten used to doing it day in, day out. If you’re thinking of employing some models to show off your fashion pieces, we’ve got some great tips on how to ensure that they feel more comfortable during the shoot. 

Relax Yourself
If you are nervous or uptight, the model is likely to pick up on this, and mirror your behaviour. Acting relaxed and comfortable around your model is going to make them feel more at ease around you, which is why it is so important. Have confidence when speaking to models – at the end of the day, they’re just another human being doing their job – and they’re more likely to be comfortable as well. A friendly smile and chat can often go a long way when it comes to ensuring that a model is comfortable around you and at ease during the shoot.

Spreading The Cost Of Christmas Shopping Using A Catalogue

The festive season is just around the corner, and although it can be a time of fun and celebration, it can also be a huge financial headache. Paying for the cost of Christmas can really mount up, with expenses for food, decorations and treats, not to mention gifts and party clothing.

Hi~ Last month I got a beautiful package from JORD. I was asked to pick the best design from their collection (in my opinion) for me to try out. How cool is that?!

I'm not used to wearing other fashion accessories other than watches! Take off my bracelets and necklaces, but not my watch! XD

So I selected this very sophisticated looking watch with rose gold plate. It's lovely! Let's have a photo unboxing, shall we? :)

How's the packaging?
I got the package like this. It was placed in a small box. I have to pick it up from the post office though. I was expecting it to be delivered directly on my door step as it was sent through express delivery. Maybe it's just because of our post office etc.

It was packaged in this beautiful carved WOODEN box and the products was covered with layers of bubble wrap! They really know how to package a beautiful product. 

What's inside the box?
The watch itself is wrapped around a little textile pillow.

They also included cards for instructions on how you can set up this beautiful wood watch, warranty cards, extra links/extensions and a cleaning cloth.

It was neat, I'm telling you!

How about the sizing?
Oh before they sent out the package, they make sure that it was in your size.

So usually they send you a printable ruler where you can measure your wrist and then you can send the actual size of your wrist for a perfect fit! This saves you time, money and effort to go to your jewellers. Awesome, right?

What's my verdict?
I have been wearing this watch everyday since I got it.

I got like 3 compliments of this watch on the first day I wore it! Yay!

Everyone is asking where I got it and I even have to show them the website. haha.

They were so curious if it's really made from wood that I have to remove it and turns out they wanted to try it on. LOL.

Plus, it's not even hard to match with my style/clothing.

I'm super happy with this watch and will continue to wear it.

So if you're looking for the perfect gift this Christmas, you should definitely check out this site. They have tons of designs to choose from!

They are handmade and truly on-of-a-kind!

By the way, this style is from their Sidney series in maple and rose gold.

Note: The product was sent for a review.

Goodies from the Mail~ Rucy's Vanity, Sampleroom, BDJ Review

I finally have the time to write a blog post again. XD

This time I'll be sharing some of the things I got from the mail recently.

I wasn't really expecting these beauty products, but I'm so glad Sampleroom, BDJ and Rucy's Vanity sent them out for me to try.

Let me start with Rucy's Vanity. They are the only Korean cosmetic brand that offers high-quality cosmetic in a more reasonable price for Filipinas.
They sent me their long-lasting, waterproof liquid eyeliner with deep black pigmentation that lasts the whole day without smudging!

I'm very impressed with it that I switched to this and kept my Etude House liquid eyeliner in the cabinet. XD

It is only sold for P160.00 online. Very affordable for its size which is 7ml.
Then I also received this Gleamy Lavish waterproof mascara which is sweat resistant, water-proof and naturally coats each lash making it appear longer~!

Before and after photos with Gleamy Lavish waterproof mascara. I swear this made my lashes look 2x longer than the usual. :D

Plus it is only sold for P180.00!

The last item from Rucy's Vanity is this Auto Eyebrow pencil.

It is available in 3 shades: black, gray and brown. I have the brown one.

Before I was using an eyebrow pencil from Etude House, which is quite expensive compared to this one which is unbelievably P80.00 only!

The quality is really good. I like the sleek black packaging.

Everything is really good so far. I checked their website and saw that they are selling Eye makeup sets with FREE mirror which is really pretty and very affordable in my opinion.

You can purchase it here: "Eye makeup set w/ FREE mirror" Promo is valid until September 16, 2015 only. So you better hurry :)

Okay! Next would be my loot from BDJ.

I got 2 products after updating my account on their site. Cool, right?!

I'm currently using a body wash from Dove and so far I am liking it. I might try this Olay Deep moisture body wash next month and let you know if it is better. :)

The other one is Olay Total effects day cream with spf15. I will surely bring this little one everyday with me because the packaging is soooo cute!

The last 2 products from the mail were 2 boxes of Palmolive Naturals Flawless Clean from Sampleroom. I haven't tried this one yet, but it smells soooo good!

Alright, that's all for today!

Have you tried any product from this post yet?

Hi~! I'm finally back to blogging. I've been working really hard on my new sticker business and doesn't enough time to make blog posts recently.

I'm still working full time as a graphic artist in a company and create cute stickers at home during the night. So I'm still figuring out my schedule. >.<

I only get a maximum 5 hours of sleep, I know it's not good for my health. But I'm actually considering on focusing on my business instead, but I'm still undecided. What can you suggest?

So anyway, today I'll be doing a mini giveaway sponsored by my own ETSY shop called KeenaPrints.

I draw them freehand using my drawing tablets and make these cute precut stickers for planners. I'm really happy with what I'm doing especially when people post their planners using my kawaii stickers!

I've sold 2,000+ sticker sheets already in 3 months and I'm very proud of it! *happy kid* I hope you check it out. You might find something that you like!

Here are some of my best sellers on etsy~

As a way of thanking all of you,
I'll be giving away 20 stickers sheets to 2 lucky winners.
10 sheets per person. :D

Good luck everyone!
