Visit us at one of our Litecraft shops and stores.

The lights we choose can create the moods / atmosphere we need in our homes such as....

Romantic: to create this mood you need softer lighting, with warm and soft colours. Try candle light or lamps/lights with dimmers to create an intimate and relaxing feel.

Lively and cheerful: to create this mood you need the room to be brightly lit, with plenty of lamps, spotlights and a variety of other lights on. Warmer colours tend to create a more cheerful vibe, such as orange, red and yellow.

Morning and night time: here you will want to create a mood that embraces the half asleep-half awakeness you are feeling. This also requires soft lighting, though not as soft as a romantic mood might, again dimmer switches are perfect here as you can gradually increase or decrease the light to ease you into the waking up/going to sleep process.

Accent lighting: this is perfect if you want to draw attention to a specific part of your room or things within your room, furthermore it adds dimension and is very welcoming to guests.

Eleganza Floor Lamp

The picture above shows the Eleganza floor standing lighting we have been reviewing over the last few weeks and shows how effective lighting can be.

The Eleganza lighting range from king of affordable luxury, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, allows you to illuminate your room in sumptuous fashion.

The antique brass base of the Eleganza floor lamp is embellished with stunning mercury glass detailing for a gorgeous crackled look that reflects the light beautifully. The lamp is finished with a cream pleated shade for true elegance and style.

More Floor Lamps can be found over on this link ----> Floor Lamps

We your item arrives, you will find it to have very good packaging and even polystyrene blocks to give it that extra protection,also came in excellent timing so no worries on waiting for weeks and weeks for your light to come.

Assembling Eleganza floor lamp was one of ease took only a few minutes, which was perfect and no messing about figuring out what is what!
Have to say I did try a few places to see which room the lamp would be best in, went with the living-room first and it did look good and also placing the floor lamp in our conservatory and yes it set the room alight for us in our house.

What struck me from this light is the grand elegance with it's shear glistering embellished glass crackled effect from the neck of the lamp,its golden brass tones are sure to put a touch of luxurious feel to your room.

You can tell it's a well put together robust floor lamp and did you know that lighting can make a room look bigger,well yes it can as if you have a dark corner of your room, placing a lighting such a floor standing lighting has the effect to open up a room and even draw the eye upwards especially if it's a tall floor lamp.

We at Precious Little Worlds have been given a great opportunity to join up with the amazing OrganycUK to bring you some fantastic reviews and a Giveaway too......

First of all lets take a look about OrganycUK

All our products are 100% certified organic cotton cleaned with oxygen peroxide (natural occurring disinfectant), with Hypoallergenic composition: no perfumes, no colouring, no synthetic materials, no SAP (Super Absorbent Powders). Organyc products are naturally soft and breathable to help prevent skin irritations, rashes and redness. They have high absorbency due to the natural prorperties of cotton fibres. The feminine care range are completely biodegradable and compostable: wrapping and back-sheet pads layer are made of Mater-Bi(R), a bio-polymer film deriving from corn starch.

We have been given a wonderful selection from the their Organic Beauty Range which included....

Organyc biodegradable Organic Cotton Wool Pads have only one ingredient,100% organic cotton. The superior quality of the organic cotton is clear from the soft touch of the multi-purpose pads. Whether using for removing your make-up or for general use the handy organic cotton wool pads will feel soft against your skin. Organyc products are vegan and completely biodegradable, in fact theseorganic cotton wool pads are also certified by eco-cert. The quality of this product is further highlighted by the ethical farming involved in the cultivation of theOrganyc organic cotton pads as well as supporting the environment.

If you are like me and very much into make-up what better way to it off then using these super soft Organic Cotton pads. It may sound odd I know but never have I felt such softness from cotton pads before,this is very important to me as I have very sensitive skin.

They come in at a price of £2.39 for 70 pads per pack "yes" its a little higher then your standard range but for me I like to know what is in my beauty items and that its going to work well for me, and that you are supporting the environment.
What is also good is that they don't fall apart and rip like other cotton pads do as they are very durable,they are double sided and are embossed which allows you do get a deep clean with a ultimate extra soft touch.

Highly recommend these Organic Cotton Pads.     

These Organyc biodegradable organic cotton buds are fully certified by eco cert. This ensures the production of the organic cotton buds works in harmony with the environment to support biodiversity. Furthermore the organic cotton is grown without artificial pesticides and supports ethical farming and in turn local farming communities. The Organyc organic cotton buds are soft to the touch and will care for you and your family’s needs in a natural and organic way. With the only ingredient being 100% organic cotton these cotton buds ensure optimum quality that you can use every day. 

Cotton buds have been around for so many years I remember them back in my childhood too as they have so many uses...

Personally I don't tent to use cotton buds for ears what I use mine for the little mistakes we make on our make-up as they come in handy and not only that perfect for nail polish runs too.

You can even apply eyeshadow with them and if you love the smokey eyes then simply rub the pud on the upper lids,also outlining your lips or even using them for smudges.
They are so good if you have any spots as you can dab tea tree oil on to them the list goes on. Price range you are looking at £2.49 for 200 per pack which is good as they have so many uses to them and always come in handy.

Photography Course With Shaw Academy


Hello all,

Sorry if you have not see many posts from me in the last month I ended up in A&E on a IV drip due to my chronic Migraines, but I am back and ready to go to tell you what other things I have been up to.

So I enrolled on my first ever Photography course with +Shaw Academy and "yes" have say was a little scared as was not sure what to expect or if I would get the hang of it, but had nothing to loose.

What is it all about......

Photography is a wonderful form of expression and communication. Whether you want to tell a story, sell a product or just show how beautiful a certain place you visited is, photography plays an essential role in fulfilling your creative vision. Photography is a magnificent art form allowing the avid student to draw with light in the most imaginative of forms. Photographers have quite literally brought light to the world and opened our eyes to the imagery from the furthest corners of our planet. The course offers you the opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge and capture those images you have always dreamed of.

Your Tailored Live Online Diploma in Photography

The frustration for budding photographers and even experienced photographers is fulfilling their creative potential due to lack of technical knowledge and understanding of how to take full advantage of their camera. We take students who are stuck on fully automatic and give them the knowledge and skills to make that transition to fully manual shooting. The course provides you with a set of skills to fully utilize the functionality of your camera and help you expand your creative potential. The course also gives you fundamental knowledge about photography so that you have a solid understanding of the subject you are passionate about.
Live Interactive Classes

This course consists of 10 core lessons, building up your Photography knowledge step by step with directly applicable skills and knowledge necessary to produce photographic work. All lessons are presented online live, twice weekly, in a structured manner in order to allow you to learn efficiently. The live aspect of our delivery allows for interactive learning and the questions and answers session will deal effectively with all of your questions to ensure that you are fully understanding of all of the information provided.

Study when or where you please whilst also having full tutor support throughout your journey.

Qualified tutors will support you during each step of your educational journey. In addition to live presentation, all lessons can be accessed 24/7 post their release date so that you can truly learn at your own convenience. This means that even if you can’t attend a live session online, you can catch up on the lesson in your own time. Study when or where you please whilst also having full tutor support throughout your journey, making mastering and implementing this beneficial knowledge easier than ever.

Lesson 1: What is Photography?

                                                                                                                                                                               Every minute of the day we are exposed to photography and visual imagery in some shape or form, whether it’s an advertising campaign in your local department store or simply looking at pictures of friends and family on a social networking site. This lesson explores photographic styles and how they are used as a form of communication. Photography enables you to convey a message or a story, sell a product, or to simply illustrate how beautiful a certain place you visited is. Therefore the way you shoot and what you capture determines what your photography communicates. Understanding the different styles will help you identify the subjects you like to shoot and enhance your own style.
Camera Types:

We will also dig into the various types of cameras currently available on the market and why you would use one over the other. This will help you with purchasing a camera best tailored for your needs, making shooting in various conditions and situations easier and more enjoyable.
Lesson 2: Demystifying Camera Functions:

Most cameras come with a huge range of menus and functions which can be quite daunting for the user to comprehend. In lessons 2, we will look at the common functions that appear on most cameras and demystify their use. Understanding these functions will expand your creative control and open up new possibilities for your pictures.
Lenses Types

The camera’s lens determines the quality and sharpness of your pictures and allows you to get closer or further away from the subject. We will explore the most frequently used lenses and when and where they are used. Picking the right lens for the scene you are capturing will ensure you get the best shot.
Lesson 3: Capturing the Light

As technology grows, cameras seem to become more complex by the day with user manuals getting bigger and bigger with each new model. In actual fact cameras are an extremely simple device. The process of capturing and recording light is a reasonably simple process and understanding this process will change the way you think about the complexity of the camera.

Understanding the concept of exposure is essential to developing your knowledge of light and will improve your ability to capture the scene the way you see it. We will also discuss different types of light and with the aid of some examples we will analysis various lighting conditions you might find yourself shooting in.
Lesson 4: Motion and Depth

Motion and Depth are essential to expanding the creative potential of your photography. Controlling and manipulating motion and depth in your images will allow you to add drama and sophistication to your images. Whether you want to freeze an athlete in action or blur the flow of a waterfall, controlling motion will expand your capabilities and allow you to explore new subjects. Lesson 4 explores the camera’s shutter and aperture and examines the role they play in harnessing this creative potential.
Lesson 5: Composition

Composition is one of the most fundamental elements in a photograph. Composition refers to the placement and relationship of elements within a picture. The arrangement of elements in a scene, the angle they are shot at, and the distance the photo is taken from, can completely change the final outcome of the photograph. They can ultimately determine the difference between a good and a bad picture. Understanding how to explore all of the compositional possibilities of the scene will greatly improve your ability to capture the best photographs.
Lesson 6: Advanced Composition

In this lesson we will delve deeper in to the subject of composition and look at techniques to guide the viewer’s eye into or around your image. Mastering advanced composition techniques will allow you take pictures that engage the viewer and hold their attention. We will also discuss visual consistency when creating a series of pictures.
Lesson 7: How Much Light is Enough?

The ability to capture the light the way you see or would like to see it, is essential to making great photographs that have drama, vivid colours and depth. To fully understand how much light you need to capture for a scene, you need a way of measuring how much light is there. Most cameras have a light meter to indicate whether you have too much, too little or just the right amount of light to capture the scene. Lesson 7 looks at the light meter and discusses how it can be used to understand your exposure even before you have taken the picture. Grasping how to read the light meter will help you avoid taking those pictures that are too bright or too dark.
Lesson 8: Manual Mode – The Relationship between Shutter Speed and Aperture.

This is one of the most fundamental topics in photography. The marriage of shutter and aperture in manual mode gives you the most creative control offered to you by the camera. Having an understanding of the relationship between the two, will allow you to expand the potential of your photography and make creative decisions that were not available to you before.
Lesson 9: The Colour of Light : White Balance

In this lesson we will look at the different colours of various light sources and how they can change the atmosphere and mood of your photographs. We will also discuss how to avoid and resolve colour issues within your pictures.

Focus is key for taking high quality photographs that are sharp and capture your vision. Lesson 9 discusses different various techniques and focusing modes available on most cameras. An understanding of focusing will help you keep the viewer engaged with the key subjects in your images.

Lesson 10: The Digital Image

What is a digital picture? Lesson 10 explores file format and how digital images are constructed. This gives you an insight into the file formats available on your camera which equips you with the knowledge to select the highest quality file format and image size that best suits your purpose. We will also look at some image editing software and the key differences between the most popular ones on the market. Imaging software can take your photography to the next level, transforming your pictures into works of art.
