Make your living room inviting with Photowall

Hello again ladies & gents

It’s been quite a while since I published a post and if you’ve read my ‘life lately’ post then you will know that my life is pretty hectic. If you missed it, I’m currently doing my masters in forensic psychology, working full time and learning to drive. Pretty full on I guess but I don’t do things in halves!

So here goes, a new post for you to feast your eyes on. Grab a cup of tea and your all set to read on.

Photo Wall “are a Swedish company with a passion for design and quality. Our wall murals and canvas prints are environmentally friendly, fire-retardant in accordance with Swedish standards and do not fade in sunlight. All our motifs are selected with care.”

With every purchase made through Photo Wall they support Vi Agroforestry and plant 5,000 trees a year around Lake Victoria, Eastern Africa to help fight poverty, improve the environment and combat climate change.

I was lucky to have the opportunity to have a custom canvas* made by Photo Wall, so I began on my hunt for the perfect picture! I flicked through hundreds of pictures and narrowed it down to a couple finally selecting one of my daughter, it’s simple.. yet beautiful.

I have to admit when the print arrived I was slightly confused as it came un-stretched but after reading the provided instructions it’s so easy to assemble.

Just lay your canvas print on a flat surface and position your wooden frames in place removing the 3M tape and fix them into place. Once you’ve positioned the four frames just fold them all into the canvas, bracket them into place with the screws provided and ta-da you’ve got yourself a stretched canvas!

I opted for a 43.31″ x 23.62″ sized canvas for my living room feature wall (£94)*, which is pretty big I must admit but I don’t think any other size would do it justice. Before receiving the canvas I was worrying over how the image quality would be slightly distorted due to the size of the canvas but Photo Wall exceeded my expectations, it’s incredible. So clean and crisp. Just perfect.

I honestly can not recommend Photo Wall enough if your looking for something new for your living room, a gift or just a memory. I’ve found myself wanting more of their products and eyeing up their wall murals for the bedroom because honestly there is some incredible prints.. you won’t be disappointed.

Scarlett’s First Birthday

 Just over a year ago I was in labour with my little girl which you can see the post here. My little lady baby was put into my arms and I became a mummy for the first time, I was so totally in love. Throughout that year we have watched her grow and achieve so many milestones.

I can’t get over how much babies learn, it is incredible how they develop into their own little person. She is so clever and has learnt so many skills throughout the year. Scarlett now can say words such as “mum”, “ma”, “mumma”, “dad”, “ada” “da”, “nana” and “yeah”, I really cannot express how amazing it is to hear your child say mum or dad for the first time, I was on the verge of tears.

She has also learnt so many other things such as to clap her hands and wave when you say “hi” and “bye” to her. Scarlett is also incredibly good at passing you things when you say “ta”.  Scarlett is now a confident crawler going from army crawling to crawling using her hands and knees, she always loves to walk by holding onto our hands as she is not completely confident yet, I don’t blame her it must be so scary learning to walk for the first time.

I was looking up how many teeth a child should have because I was absolutely clueless and there are 20 in total. Scarlett began teething around 5 months old, she is now 13 months and has 12 teeth, yes 12! they are literally coming through one after another with 4 through within a month.

So her first birthday was approaching and I had no idea what to do for it, because I have never done this before. I invited a couple of close friends who had kids to a small birthday party with a bit of food and of course CAKE!

The night before I was like a little kid at Christmas, I was probably more excited than she was. My partner started to make a 6 tier rainbow birthday cake for Scarlett at around 7pm taking a total of 5 hours from start to finish, but I must admit I was thoroughly impressed and it went down an absolute treat.

The day after, Scarlett’s first birthday typically she woke up at 6:30 as usual and we couldn’t resist going downstairs all excited to see her open her presents. She absolutely loved opening her presents but needed a little help to rip them open, she did get quite bored at the end so I had to open quite a few of them.

Visitors arrived, I was really nervous as I have never done a birthday party before, but there was plenty of balloons, food, music and cake so everyone was happy enough to just have a little dance and run around. Scarlett absolutely loved all the little kinds, and I can safely say she had a great day

I really couldn’t imagine life without her, it is like she has always been with us.sig2
