An Autumnal Wall Accessory With Photowall*

Sunday, 27 September 2020

 *This post contains a gifted item*

As Autumn is officially upon us this week, I couldn't wait to get the Autumnal decorations plastered around my room. So when Photowall got in touch and kindly offered to gift me one of their products, my mind wondered to one thing, and one thing only.. Autumn. 

It was so hard to try and narrow down which print to choose as the Photowall website is filled with numerous gorgeous prints, for all tastes and for all spaces. Wallpapers, canvas prints, posters, framed prints, wall murals, you name it and I'm more than sure you can find it on Photowall. I opted for this simple, yet perfectly Autumnal pinecone canvas print

My print arrived within 2 days of ordering and was received beautifully packaged with instructions and all the items needed to easily assemble the canvas ready for hanging. I have never really been good with flat packed furniture or items and following instructions to assemble them. With that being said, within 10 minutes, the canvas was assembled. I can assure you, that if I can do it, then I am more than sure, anyone else will be able to do it too haha. The canvas itself is made from 100% cotton, is UV resistant and doesn't fade in sunlight, meaning it can be hung anywhere and will remain just as beautiful over time, as it did when it arrived. Amazing. All canvas prints are custom made to order, meaning that waste is minimised, and makes each order that much more special. 

I opted for propping the canvas up on the top of my ladder shelves for now - but I love that I can eventually hang it else where when the season changes. I don't have any wall hangings in my room other than 1 photo frame, but now having this canvas print, I can't wait to finally get redecorating (at some point) and add more prints to the walls. 

Not only do Photowall offer the above, there is also a feature to be able to create your own posters, wallpapers, canvas prints and more, which is such a lovely touch. You can even edit a print that is currently listed on their website, to make it the perfect fit for your space. What a great way to be able to personalise your walls.

Are you decorating for Autumn?

What To Watch For A Little Pick Me Up

Sunday, 13 September 2020

Now that nights are slowly getting darker earlier, it does seem more apparent that there is a running theme of needing a little pick me up. Going to work in the dark and getting home in the dark can leave you feeling a little bit deflated. Whether you're in need of some self care or a little pick me up, I thought to compile a short list of films that always cheer me up. So grab a cup of tea, snuggle up on the sofa, under all of the blankets/throws that you can find, light some autumnal candles and stick on one of the below.

Love, Rosie
Possibly my favourite film. If not, it's up there in the top 5. I love the story line of this film and how it elapses over time. You can't but help getting caught up in the relationship/friendship of Rosie and Alex. This is one of those films that makes you warm inside, and makes you think that everything does fall into place when it is meant too. It follows Alex and Rosie, who are best mates from school, throughout their lives into college and work. However, things aren't as simple as they should be for 2 friends, when one moves to Boston for college.

Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging
No question that this film was going to be on my list. One that I have watched a hundred times over and still never end up getting bored of. If anything, the more that it gets watched, the better that it is. If you didn't know what this film is about (where have you been!?), Georgia is longing to get to know Robbie, a new guy in town, who she learns has just moved to Eastbourne from London. Georgia tries many things to get realised by Robbie. Do they work? What gets in her way? I guess you'll have to watch to find out.

Another film I have seen countless times. It's become a running joke in my family, that I love pugs. There is something ridiculously cute and endearing about their little mischievous personalities and their adorable faces. So there is no reason why this film wouldn't be on this list. I love the humour in this film too and there are a few actors that you may recognise. Sarah inherits Patrick when her grandma sadly passes away. She is due to start a new job teaching and she has no idea how she is going to balance her new lifestyle and a dog. 

Harry Potter
Espeically now that Autumn is around the corner, these are great films to get stuck into. Any of the collection is good to put on and switch off too. I don't feel that Harry Potter needs a brief description, as I would like to think that you have all seen the films..

What films do you watch when you need a little pick me up?
