Clare-Without-An-I


Late last year I (when I say "I" I mean my boyfriend) put up a wall mural in our bedroom, a wall mural is basically wallpaper if you're like me and didn't know that before.

The mural itself is from Photowall, they are "a Swedish company with a passion for design and quality. Their wall murals and canvas prints are environmentally friendly, fire-retardant in accordance with Swedish standards and do not fade in sunlight. All motifs are selected with care."

As you can see from the photos the murals are pretty damn cool, I went with the image "In November Light". I've always liked the idea of making the bedroom forest themed because I just love walks through the woods and being in the great outdoors but there are 100's of images to chose from, it was a tough decision!

This has made me question the difference between a forest and the woods...some googling for after this post perhaps?

Anyway so it's all explained on their website but you measure up and enter the dimensions on the image you want and order it, that's about it really but if you don't have the equipment at home don't forget to order the little pack they provide!

And if you're like me and forget the paste...don't haha!

The mural itself comes nice and compact in one big roll where each strip numbered so you just cut off the strips, paste the wall and chuck it on the wall...in order of course... 

Simples!? Haha don't worry full instructions are provided!

I don't think I could have done this by myself purely because of the size of the strips and i'm quite short, but it was still pretty easy enough, the only thing me and my other half found tricky was lining up each strip but just take your time and it'll be fine.

Now the mural is up I love it, absolutely love it! It's now the stand out room in the house and it just makes it feel so cosy, I was worried it might make the room a little darker or feel small but it doesn't at all, it just looks amazing.

The only thing I do want to point out which isn't really a negative point but still worth mentioning is the quality of the image didn't seem that great when up close on the roll and I was worried it wouldn't look that good but thankfully when it was up and all together it looks great! So if you get one of these ad think this, don't worry, it'll look fine!

New Year! New me!!

Not!

Happy New Year to all 2 of my readers’ haha! I want to share with you my 2017 in photos.

I've been on some amazing holidays and day trips, I've ran loads of events including my first half marathon! I have also had some shitty times like losing both my bunnies Misty and Marley, this was probably my all time low of the year!

But with this happening I've been blessed with a lovely little lady bun called Bella who I rescued from a local rescue who I now volunteer for.

After losing Misty and Marley I had a bit of a mid life crisis and got my first tattoo and since that one I have had another 3. 

Recently I have started yoga, registered as a blood donor and gave my first pint, so loads happened this year! And obviously I can't forget that it was last year in Feb I went vegan! 

So even though I don't really believe in New Year’s resolutions, I’m more of a "if you want to do it just do it kind of person" I do have some things I want to improve on...such as posting to my blog more often lol!

I also want to stick at yoga and really progress with it! I am looking forward to posting again in a year and telling you how much I’ve improved!

I also want to read more and drink more water! Very simple things but things I suck at sticking too!

So here is my 2017 in pictures....
