Wonders of PhotoWall's Wall Murals + COUPON

Hey Chics!

I am very excited about this post as I've never gotten to experience wall murals until now...

   River of dreams - Photowall

Into the wild - Photowall

In this article, I'll take you through the process of putting up the mural upon arrival to the final look.

I was contacted by PhotoWall to give my honest review of one of their canvases or wall murals (I chose the mural, of course, as I wanted to be EXTRA). PhotoWall is a Wall Mural, Photo Wall Paper, and Canvas company based in Sweden.

First off, ordering the mural was very easy. All I had to do was measure the wall of my choice, and give the dimensions online. Then, it gave me a price quote. From there, I was able to place my order and patiently await the mural's arrival.

I was very excited to get this in the mail, and it only took 2-3 Business Days to arrive! For some reason, I was under the impression that it was going to arrive in the giant tube with the dimensions I gave (boy, was I wrong)! It wasn't until George and I watched the installation video that I then realized they were printed in chunks (DUH)!

We then began prepping for the wall mural application. The video was very informative on how this was supposed to be applied, but I took a different approach: Since I live in an apartment, I wasn't sure if the wall mural adhesive was "Apartment Safe" for my walls. I wouldn't have really cared that much if my walls were strictly flat, but I have Stucco walls, and I didn't want to mess that up (Also, deposit DUH).

I'm sure the original process would have been SO MUCH faster, but I wanted to be cautious, and we didn't have ALL of the tools we needed at first. This project took us about 3 hours (with breaks in between). I also want to give my boyfriend, George, a HUGE shoutout for being the Real MVP and helping out with this project! After hours of doing this, VOILA! My blueberry wall was born!

I really love how it came out once we finished the mural! After a day or so of drying, it still looked great, but you could see the dried bubble spots where I used uneven amounts of adhesive (I didn't apply it evenly as instructed). Overall, I love the mural!

This was definitely a trial and error situation for me; and if I could start over and do the mural EXACTLY as instructed, I totally would because it would literally be PERFECT. I found that it does not take the paint off, and there are safe ways to remove the wall mural and adhesive without messing up your wall. Overall, I love this idea for home improvement/makeovers as it really brings a room to life! I will definitely order more from them again!

I definitely recommend PhotoWall for all of your Mural, Canvas needs as they provide gorgeous stock photos taken by their team, or you can send them your own custom photo for print! Definitely go check them out HERE and don't forget to use my coupon code MartikaBrianneCampaign2018 for 20% OFF your purchase!

Cleaning/Drying Your Makeup Brushes Will Never Be The Same Again...

Hey Chicsters!

Who hates cleaning makeup brushes? -I DO!

I can never fully get all of the makeup out of my brushes with both makeup brush cleaner and dish soap!!!!

And don't even get me started on the drying part...

I would attempt to towel dry my half-ass cleaned makeup brushes; and when they weren't dry enough to my liking, I'd blow dry them (which led to much shedding and burned bristles).

Trust me, when I say that I have tried everything! But obviously not EVERYTHING...

I have been introduced to a company called The Brush Bar that makes two ADORABLE contraptions: The Brush Board & The Brush Bar.

I was amazed by all of the different ways that I could clean and dry my brushes, and I couldn't wait to film my first impression of these beauties!

The Brush Board is the first makeup brush exfoliator with different grooves to thoroughly clean all types of makeup brushes!

 

The Brush Bar allows you to dry your makeup brushes without damaging or misshaping them! It also doubles as an organization tool!


 

Gotta have it!?

"Tired as a Mother" Wine Glass by KimHearts | Review

I came across this wine glass and thought it was the most fascinating thing! My first thoughts were: "GLITTER on a WINE GLASS!?!? There's no way!" I HAD to try this out for myself. I contacted Kim, the owner of KimHearts, and she sent me this beautiful wine glass in return for my honest review. So let's get to it, shall we?!

First Impression

First off, I love that the owner has a great personality and is an entrepreneur! She is loving wife and a mother of two! She works very hard making these "Shiny Things." She specializes in custom glasses like this one.

 
 

This one is particular has the saying: "Tired as a Mother" referring to a tired mommy needing her glass of wine after a long day with the kids, which is true! It's not easy being a mother (Trust me, I was not an easy child to raise, so thank you Mommy for putting up with my Sh*t)!! Obviously, being me, I originally thought it meant "Tired as a Mother F*****." That would be me though. Same thing. ANYWAYS...

I am in awe with how shiny it is... I mean, GLITTER!! Who doesn't like glitter? (If you don't UNSUBSCRIBE NOW). I am so glad Kim put a disclaimer to ONLY hand wash this thing because I would have totally thrown it in the dishwasher and destroyed it!

I do love that the glitter does not come off, which is KEY. Did I mention that you can get the glitter in different colors!?!? Yes. Yes, you can. I also thoroughly appreciate the fact that she customized it to me by putting my name on the back! I will always drink my wine out of this now. I shall call this my "Special Cup."

 
 

Final Thoughts

I really, really, really love this glass. It is cute, it has personality, and it is efficient. I recommend this wine glass if you're looking for something personalized that screams "YOU!" NOTE: These are handmade, so they will slightly vary. Also, it can take up to a week for shipping as they have to be made. So yeah, go CHECK IT OUT!! This particular wine glass can be found here. The link to her store can be found here

I hope you enjoyed this read as I enjoyed writing it while sipping from my "Special Cup." ;)
