How to style your Instagram photos

Recently on Instagram I began to share how I’m styling my photos and where the inspiration is coming from. I do not own a studio and expensive equipment, with a little imagination and creativity I made my own home studio in which I love to spend my time.


I have always admired bloggers with beautiful photos and one day I just decided that I would try and learn how to achieve that. I realized that not all people on this planet have their house decorated by Instagram standards and I decided to find a solution for all of my problems. I’ll give you some basic things that could inspire you or help you look a little differently in styling the environment where you’re taking pictures.

Most of the time, I follow the rule of thirds and I try not to “cut off” essential details from the photos. The object is in the middle, depending on the background and if it looks good that way. So if I have this clock in the focus, I do not want to cut out one part of the clock, I want to make sure the whole watch is in the focus. If the focus was on the lip balm next to it, then the part of the clock could freely be cut out to give the lip balm more attention. I love to make a visual frame on the photos, like with these petals. It seems to me that it gives the pictures some playfulness and spontaneity.

How I stopped buying cosmetics and clothes

I am a person who likes to try out different products, replace old products with new ones and ultimately – I would not have anything to write here if I don’t do that. In the past year I’ve been trying to be more moderate in buying everything, not just cosmetics and clothing. I do not want to accumulate products that never see the light of day and spend money on products that I do not get use of.

It happened to me a hundred times where I bought cotton pads because I thought I used it all and then I found that I had an unopened package at home. It started irritating me because I did not even get to know what I had in stock and then bought it accordingly. I could not go to the drugstore for one thing and not to come back with four more unnecessary things.

I started asking myself questions “Do I need this” or “when will I use this”. I started thinking rationally and making lists for everything I could buy. Really, who needs four white T-shirts that look the same? Do you really need that red nail polish you look at on the shelf at the store, and last time you wearing a red nail polish was ten years ago? You want to buy a black leather skirt, and you have never worn skirts and it is a great possibility that you will not even wear this one?

When you start thinking logically, you can save a lot of money. I always bought nail polishes before and I never used it. Buying would be justified by “so maybe I will need it one day”. Do not misunderstand me and think that I have a bunch of products packed in closets as some American YouTubers. Not nearly.

My struggle with dandruff

For years I have had no problems with dandruff, but in the last couple of months, it’s become a problem. It seems to me that dandruff has become a taboo topic and that people, especially girls, are avoiding to talk about. My fight with dandruff still lasts and I hope to help one of you with some of my tips.

About a year ago, I noticed the occurrence of dandruff. At that time I was recovering from a tonsillectomy and my immunity was very weak. I could not eat properly so I could not bring into my own organism healthy foods that contribute to healthy and shiny hair. My hair ruthlessly fallen out because of all the antibiotics I had and I believe that antibiotics are to blame for today’s condition.

That time I was lucky, I put henna on my hair and all of the problems disappeared from my scalp. Henna is an organic color, naturally purifies and strengthens the hair and strengthens the root of hair. My hair is rejuvenated after each use of the henna, it has a healthy shine and it grows faster. I put the henna on my hair about 2-3 times a year, I do not need to use it more often because I do not have gray hair. A month or two ago I put on the henna and I thought that would solve my problem with the dandruff again, but it did not.

At the time of the appearance of dandruff, I decided to reduce the amount of products to a minimum and thus eliminate the potential producers of dandruff. I can not say that a certain product is guilty of charge, but I can say that an often use of aggressive shampoos has contributed a lot. I managed to reduce the oil secretion, which is what anyone with oily hair wants, instead I have contributed to drying the scalp and causing the dandruff. I have to say that my hair despite everything is still in very good condition and it looks really nice. It grows very fast and looks healthy.
