Boxing day!

I love this orange and lemon print dress by Emily and Fin. It took me ages to get hold of it, if you guys remember my dress story. I’m glad I finally got it!

I have a question for you tech heads out there. I am having trouble getting good quality pictures lately with my DSLR. I have a Nikon D3100, the first photo was taken with the same lens as the other photos, but they are not great quality at all. I don’t know what to doooooo. This is a new problem! What settings do you guys use to take your photos on? 

Ok, technical issues aside, boxing day happened and my brothers came to my parents house to have a bit of food and drink.
I made my family watch the Shaytards Christmas Special. They were not impressed.
Brothers! There is one brother missing, he lives in Oz now so we haven’t seen him in about 8 years :/
Me and brothers.
My cute face niece!

Star in my parents window. Ignore the spot on my lip. It has been causing me major distress over the past few days.

Tell me of your boxing day
Also answer my question about the camera issue because it’s stressful for meeeeee.

    Well, I have a D3000 and I love using the manual setting. It’s the setting with the little M on the rotary dial on the top of your camera. After you set it to that, look down the back side of your camera, next to where you can view pictures, there should be a button at the bottom with a magnifying glass with a + symbol in the middle of it. Press it and this will take you to your settings. From there you can change the white balance, ISO, pictures quality, point of focus, and a lot of other things that I haven’t even tried yet! I hope this helps a little. Also, if you’re having trouble with blurriness, make certain your camera is set on Auto Focus. There’s a little switch on your camera lens. It should say M or A. Make sure it’s set to A. Your dress is really pretty, by the way. I hope you had a great Christmas!

    That dress is magical and so pretty on you. The black tights helped toned down the colors of the print in a really lovely way. You look very cute.

    Now on the camera issue, i would love to help you out not because i am pro but because i started with a DSLR and i had no idea what i was doing, but with time, i learned and still learning from my mistakes. Lots of practice and you be a pro in no time. Well, this is my email:

    Hey girl! Thanks for your sweet comment. You & your housemate are funny!

    Your answer to your folks’s debate is: Yes! That is my REAL hair. 100%. No extensions. To be honest, I wouldn’t be able to keep my head straight if I added any extensions because my hair is already heavy as it is!

    I’ve always had lots of hair–don’t really do anything different/have any secrets about it! I think it just runs in my family 🙂

    Anyway, take care! and thanks again for dropping by!

  • Reply Jezz Dallas December 29, 2013 at 5:28 am

    Definitely check your focus,,,maybe you need to manually adjust as some tend to automatically re-adjust…also go to settings and look at your ISO…might help with the lighting…I know those tech issues really can take the joy out of blogging. In any way, I hope you had a great couple fo days!

    Hi Corrine,
    Love the citrus and refreshing feeling this dress gives!
    I think you could check the focus of the camera. Instead of autofocus, you could try to us manual focus, focusing on the spot that you want to stand and then set it on the timer.


    • Reply Corinne January 19, 2014 at 6:19 pm

      Thanks, I’ll give it a gi and see if it helps!

  • Reply Amanda Val December 29, 2013 at 8:05 am

    You look so gorgeous! And I love my family, but I wish I had brothers. I guess that’s why I have a few male friends to compensate for that. Check whether you’re on automatic focus or manual. I don’t have the same camera you do, but you may have accidentally set it to manual and then the camera just doesn’t focus for you. x
