Wall Tour !

Hello There !

A few months back I did a tag and as part of it I mentioned the massive collage I have on the wall next to my bed and how I used it to keep me smiling on tough days ! The whole Idea for my wall was based around something Carrie Hope Fletcher said :

" Things haven't always been this bad, therefore they won't always be this bad. "

So I made my wall as a reminder of the times that made me smile and bits of motivation ! A few people in the comments asked to see more of my wall so today I decided to do a wall tour for you before I have to take it down to move house at some point next  year !


Here are just of a few of my favourite bits ! I broke them down into sections to make it easier for both of us !

The Carrie Stuff :


1. Carries Face ! I've told you many times how much I love Carrie Hope Fletcher and everything she stands for, this woman is such an inspiration to me . So as you can imagine I was quite excited when my boyfriend got me a signed poster of her for my birthday ... I screamed so loud I had to go downstairs to reassure my mum I wasn't being murdered !
2. The original sign of the hopefuls that one of my friends drew me :)
3. Last December Carrie was on the final arena tour of War of The Worlds and my lovely dad took me to see it and I may or may not of cried. I mean I was only nine meters away from Carrie AND I had chocolate ice cream ... anyone would've got overwhelmed hehe .
4. Yes this is another of her signed posters with lyrics from one of her songs called " Running Through Rivers" On and her own illustrations :)

The Boyfriend Stuff :


5. About one and a half years a go now, I went with my boyfriends family to the Harry Potter Studios in London . They were amazing ! We drank butter bear and saw the amazing set and I bought a toy pygmy puff in the shop !
6. Here's some ice skating tickets from our 2 year anniversary and tickets for a film we went to see , I keep all our cinema tickets somewhere on my wall :) There's also a tag from one present he bought me that he wrote one of our favourite song quotes on .
7.Our Lets Go list hasn't been updated in a while we made it to remind us of all the things we want to do together like get matching Christmas pyjamas and go strawberry picking ... because were cool like that haha .
8. A friend that I don't really know any more drew this of me and my boyfriend in our teddies in a science class one time ... it's not the most accurate ( I don't and never have had green hair hehe ) but I do love it and its right next to my bed .

Little Reminders of Stuff :



9, 10, 11. Love, Live, Laugh. I found these really cute cut out letters for 40p each so put them together to make these words the features of my wall :)
12. I love Doctor Who and when I saw this article about the 12th Doctor ( Peter Capaldi ) making a video to comfort a young boy who had lost his grandma and it was really heart-warming to see his act of compassion so I wanted to remember it to help me remember that kindness is always necessary. I'll link to the video here !

Stuff to Keep Me Going :


13. A letter my best friend wrote me to read when I'm feeling down, I keep this by my bed where I can always get to it . My best friend is honestly the most caring, sensitive, kind young woman I have ever met and I don't know what I'd do without her.
14 and 15. I have a few little phrases and quotes on scraps of paper around my wall like " You are not in this alone" and "Life isn't about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself " .
16. When I was about 12 I got cast as the lead in our schools musical Olivia and it was a massive boost for my confidence and one of the few times I've actually got the chance to perform in front of an audience. Musical Theatre is such a big part of my life and I'm happiest when I'm singing so I always keep the programme from that performance to remind me of how happy I was then :)

I really hope you enjoyed seeing a few of the bits and bobs I keep to help me stay motivated and inspired around my world map . I use the map to remind me when stuffs going wrong that there's a lot more than just that in the world !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  3. I love these things! I have something very similar all around my room. I have an entire wall filled with photos of me and my friends, another wall covered in a world map and three corkboards with old movie tickets, concert tickets, my entrance ticket to the Empire State and just small things like that. It really does brighten my day to see these!

  5. This just makes me so happy to see!!! Okay so you and your boyfriend are so extremely cute beyond words! I really adore the letter to open for when you're feeling down that is such the perfect idea and it warms my heart to know you have such a special and wonderful friend who is just as beautiful and incredible as you Marianne! I checked out Carrie Hope Fletcher and can I say WOMAN CRUSH!!! She is such a gorgeous down to earth soul, I can totally see why you love her! Really loved seeing this and what a beautiful part of your room to have and see everyday! <3

  7. Oh my goodness I am in love with your wall! <3 Every bit of it! Can I just come and take it home with me?

    That's such a sweet article you found about Peter Capaldi. :) I'm such a Doctor Who fan and this made my day.
    All the boyfriend stuff is so cute, too! He seems like such a gentleman haha
    I actually have a friend who loves quotes like these and she spent about two days writing down all the quotes she liked and organising them on her closet door. It sounds weird but it looks soo good! She used all these different colours and shapes and together they look amazing! <3

    1. Awww that's so sweet of you ! That really made me smile ... but if I did let you take my wall.. well I'd have to knock in down and then I think my mum might notice the lack of wall and be little distressed... and so would I as if my wall disappeared I could just roll out of bed onto the stairs haha :)

      I'm a massive doctor who fan ! It's nice to have a fellow whovian reading the blog :) It's one of my favourite things that's doctor who related and I had to keep it to remind myself that random acts of kindness do matter ! My boyfriends a really sweetie, I don't know what I'd do without him :) Oh my gosh, that must look so so awesome ! I actually have something like that on the back of my bedroom door at my dads :)
