Our Company

The PaintYourLife Studio was established with the clear objective of creating custom art. Our studio offers high quality handmade paintings, Prints on Canvas, and graphic design services. Most of our clients buy our Artworks to decorate their homes and offices in their own unique style, while other customers use our products as gifts for their loved ones.
How did it all start? In 2006 we began our studio employing several talented portrait painters who crafted handmade oil paintings according to customers’ photos. The mission of the owners was and is, to make quality art available to everyone, a masterpiece of their own choosing at an affordable price. Within a few months, the demand grew and as such, we employed more talented artists. We learned that many of our customers were purchasing our custom paintings as gifts for their friends and families. They were telling us, “I’m fed up with ordinary gifts like flowers, chocolates, scarves, and such. We want something special…something unique… a gift our loved ones will never forget!”
In 2008, we expanded our studio and established a new line of products. the new line included custom prints on canvas, unique PopArt editing by professional graphic designer and also oil reproductions of famous artists .
What makes our studio stand out among the others is our commitment to customer care. We give the same personal attention to every customer and for every order. Each order is inspected by one of our artists and also by our customer service members. Our team is always listening to our customer’s needs beginning with pre-order questions to after order concerns. It is our goal to ensure that every customer goes away with a piece of art that they will enjoy for a lifetime. Throughout the process, our customers are kept up to date with the status of their order. We use the latest techniques and the best materials to ensure a top quality finished product. At heart we are artists so we care about quality and details.
 Paint Your Life

If you're tired of taking photos and never doing a thing with them,Paint Your Life is the answer.

This company allows you to transform you every day pictures into a work of art not just with canvas prints they do offer a more modern feel if that what you are looking for with their Pop Art collection that gives your pictures a modern twist.

We got to review one of the canvas prints on a 11"x14" gallery-wraped (1.5" deep) over a wooden frame.

Value around £53

The website is very easy to navigate simply clicking onto the desired location which for our was the photos to canvas section.

All you need to do is pick the size you are wanting plus if you would liked your pictured wrapped around the wooden frame or you can have a split canvas / collage ect.

Upload your chosen picture you will get a email asking for your approval to go ahead or if you would like to edit your image.



Arrival of the canvas did take a little longer then other places I have used before but when it came the canvas was very well packed,inside it came bubble wrapped to protect the picture in transit.

I checked all around the canvas and have to say very happy with the work even the wooden frame was good quality.



        

Eye-catching image quality as some you can find very pixelated that was not the case with this one as it was fine and smooth with rich colours.

The National Wedding Show Manchester 2015


 the national wedding show

The biggest, best, and most established wedding shows in the UK


We have been busy this weekend with our first visit to the wedding show over in Manchester very exciting time as I am a bride to be myself this May!
















Have to say I was not sure what to expect as its our first wedding show experience,taking around 1 hour & half to get to the show I hoped to find inspiration for my own wedding and to help you if your planning your big day.

On arrival you are given a bag that contains a show guide plus other leaflets to guide you round the event,as we came in a little later then the opening time we headed to the Wedding Catwalk.


WATCH THE LATEST BRIDAL TRENDS COME TO LIFE

The National Wedding Show Catwalk, styled by our friends at Wedding Magazine, is our flagship feature and showcases a selection of dresses from top designers to highstreet names. The catwalk will inspire you with all the ideas you need to achieve your ‘wedding day look’, pairing beautiful dresses with on-trend hair, makeup and accessory ideas. As well as bridalwear the catwalk features the latest bridesmaid dresses, grooms wear, flower girl, page boy and mother of the bride outfits, making it a must–see experience for the entire wedding party!  




Wow oh wow I was amazed by the catwalk show as so many different wedding dresses but not only they even had the latest wedding trends for your bridesmaids,mother of the bride outfits.

One of my favourite wedding designers is Alfred Angelo and my heart skipped a beat when I saw from the corner of my eye the Disney fairytale collection,as my wedding is Frozen enchanted themed. 







More from the Alfred Angelo collection!

        
What I also loved about the catwalk they even had the more affordable clothing if you are on a budget like we are,such as Debenhams showing their wedding range.

After the catwalk show we headed to some stalls to see if any good ideas for our wedding,did see some outstanding bouquets from Silk Blooms Artificial Wedding Flowers 



We are the largest silk wedding flowers company in the UK.  We catered for over 7,500 weddings last year worldwide including Kole Toure of Manchester City and Liverpool FC fame. We have some impressive clients like Estee Lauder, Juicy Couture, Calvin Klein and many others.  We specialise in premium quality, artificial wedding flowers and we can colour match flowers to any shade of any colour.
Since our humble beginnings as a home based company, we've grown exponentially. We have several full time staff from florists and IT to colour matching and manufacture. We can create flowers that you just can't get elsewhere.
We're really proud of our success and we owe these accomplishments to our specialism in premium quality, artificial flowers which we can colour match to any Pantone.  With over 5,000 innovative and unique wedding products we have probably the biggest choice of bouquets on the net! The whole internet is our catalogue though. We can replicate floral designs from a picture and it's this phenomenal service, one which you just don't find anywhere else, that's earned us such a fantastic reputation.

Goodie bags from the wedding show-


Everyone loves a good freebie when attending a show and this one came up very good with some well known brands. Have to say loving the Essie nail polishes :)

Have been disappointed from some aspects of the show as they did not have any wedding cakes to test and had one bad experience with one stall dissing our wedding as we our getting our cake from a high-street big brand. Will not be naming the stall but the man was very rude I quote "GET READY TO GRIT YOUR TEETH THEN" !!!!!!!! . Me and my partner was in shock he was shacking his head so I said I think its time for us to go.

I know small companies need supporting but they are not going to get anywhere with the speaking to customers like it. The whole point of the show that I wanted to capture is if you have a budget even coming to wedding shows you can find good spots at a show not everyone has the money to lavish out.


Back on a positive note Confetti had a very creative stand and one hell of amazing lady who was so friendly and bubbly made us feel so welcome.

Round up-

If you wanted to buy your wedding dress this was sure the show for this as they show offered so many stalls for you to try on dresses do have to say for me was a little too many wedding dress stands but I guess I come to that conclusion as I already have mine bought.

Was not what I expected the show to be it was a lot more should I say to hire items then more to get them on the day if you are like me I like to buy on the day.

Could of been more cakes to look at and try and did not see any that you could sample.

Catwalk show was the most amazing experience for me & my hubby to be.

Food was good always pricey but that's what you get at all shows.

 Some how I thought would be for example rows of wedding favours and you could get them on the day but that was not the case.

Beauty looks- If you wanted items and looks for hair & make-up you could get lots of ideas and items,most of the stalls we went to you could try them on.

Wedding Theatre- Had lots of advice to give to brides to be plus make-up tips

Microbiome Plus+ GI Probiotic Review + Giveaway


Disclaimer- Precious Little Worlds have been sent out some items from Microbime Plus range for free in exchange for our honest opinion for the purpose of our blog, to report back to you the viewers our findings.




Microbiome Plus+ GI - Ultimate Probiotic and Prebiotic Supplement Clinically Proven and Developed by Doctors - Best for Digestive and Intestinal Health - Boost Immune and Helps Weight Loss - Advanced Probiotic and Prebiotic Combination for Women and Men - Probiotic L. reuteri NCIMB 30242 and Prebiotic scFOS - Allergy Safe - 1 Month Supply





  • MOST ADVANCED PRE & PROBIOTIC COMBINATION - 600mg of PREBIOTIC scFOS (Short-chain fructo oligosaccharides) combined with 3.5 Billion CFU of New Advanced ProBiotic L. reuteri NCIMB 30242 combine to provide a Synbiotic formulation that has been shown in clinical trials to help support normal inflammatory response in addition to supporting digestive health.
  • LOSE WEIGHT - Weight-loss research suggests that healthy microflora in the gut can speed your metabolism and support fat loss. Fatburning is more than just an exercise routine. For healthy weight loss, give your body the probiotic support it needs.
  • IMPROVE & MAINTAIN HEALTH - Your gut is home to 80% of your immune system, where good bacteria (probiotics) battle with bad bacteria to prevent disease and relieve allergies, bloating, gas, and constipation. Probiotics replenish disease-fighting bacteria and help maintain digestive functions and immune health by controlling candida and yeast overgrowth.
  • SUPPORT MOOD & BOOST ENERGY - Poor nutrient absorption can leave you short on essential vitamins and minerals. Fatigue, irritability, and a lack of motivation are signs of nutrient deficiency. Probiotics develop a healthy microenvironment in the digestive system and gastrointestinal tract that optimizes nutrient absorption, giving you the positive energy and happy feelings to be your vibrant self.



I myself have been taking the supplements as part of my new health kick-start to be healthy and to feel more positive about my body!


Its been a good few weeks now using the system I have not seen a huge difference yet but that might come with time I have noticed I am not as bloated as this was a big problem for me. 

Going on to the future I keep on using them some more to see if it has more of an impact.

Sure is worth ago as not had any side effects or any problems.
