I have been obsessed with getting some Hunter boots. Deeply obsessed but if I got them I wouldn’t be able to buy actual things I need. Besides, I live in southern California. I don’t need them…but then again…
And let’s not even get into Tom Ford lipsticks.
I am grateful to be live and well. I’m grateful for the amazing parents God has blessed me with and the rest of my awesome family and friends. I am grateful to be sharing my life with the most extraordinary guy and his family who have always been great to me.
Today was amazing. And food coma.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! And remember, be grateful every day of your life and count your blessings.
Mollie is turning 6 weeks tomorrow! Time really does fly.
I wanted to share all the things I’ve gotten her so far
I walked into Target and saw they had dog toys in their $1 section! So I obviously had to get some for Mollie. Doesn’t get cheaper than that!
You can never go wrong with little tennis balls. I will definitely be teaching her how to fetch!
I went to Petsmart with boyfriend and we ended up getting her this stuff. I’m actually contemplating going to exchange the hair brush. It may not be right for her coat/hair.
You have no idea how in love I am with her bowl! I understand that most of the stuff I got is Martha Stewart but I want my pup to be Classy. Not glammed out hot pink ratchet pup. Just saying…
I have also gotten her a bed (not pictured) and it’s grey. I thought that having a girl dog would mean lots of pink but I think I’ve gotten all of the pink I can handle.
We still need to get her more stuff but we’ll be getting that later.
3 more weeks and she’s coming home with me!
I’ve been doing the No Poo Method for 2 almost 3 weeks now. I’m finally over the transition period. Buh bye oily hair! I will not miss you.
Pretty much washed my hair with baking soda for 2 weeks and just recently I started using this shampoo bar. Mud and Clay by Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve. I absolutely love it! My hair is so nice now. Well, I actually need a trim which I will get soon but other than that it feels nice and healthy. I’ve been applying coconut oil to the tips just to soften them up a bit.
The last time I dyed my hair was around April and I honestly think that was the last time for a very long time.
I’m very happy with my hair and I’m very happy slowly giving up things that can be harmful for my health in the long haul.
I went shopping at Whole Foods and ended up getting 4 items. Toothpaste, lip balm, coconut oil and a Vitamin E soap.
I’m absolutely loving every single item.
Made this recently. Really easy DIY
What You Need:
- Mason Jar
- Mini Christmas tree (got mine at Michael’s)
- Cotton balls
Opened Mason Jar, ripped cotton balls and placed them on lit. Carefully centered the little Christmas tree then I just got the glitter and sprinkled a little bit inside the jar. Turned and shook it up and closed the jar. Voila. Simple, easy and cute.

So yesterday I decided to try the No Poo Method. The No Poo Method is a method where you discard your regular shampoo and conditioner and instead wash your hair with baking soda and use apple cider vinegar as conditioner. The only downside to this method is the transitioning period which I’m obviously going through. My hair has always been really oily and it’s really oily at the moment. It’s so bad that I’m going to have to wear it in a bun to work. But I like the idea of the No Poo Method. No more crazy chemicals from my regular shampoo. And it saves me money. Last time I bought my shampoo and conditioner I spent a little over $60 so yes, also good for the wallet.
Well, it’s day 2. All I have to say is…I hate you oily hair. But I will not give up.
Today I bought my dogs treats.
It was my first time trying Zuke’s Jerky Naturals in Beef. Well, they passed the test. My dogs love them!
Only thing, I cut em into smaller pieces. I guess it depends on the size of your dog. You can use them as training treats. I was looking at training treats and none of them really convinced me. I liked these because they’re grain free and made in the USA.
I also like to keep my treats in glass jars. They seem to look classy-er to me that way.

This is my dog, Laxsie. He’s 13 (14 in April). He’s a Brazilian Terrier.
I was 10 years old when we got him. I didn’t really know any better when it came to anything actually. Of coarse he wasn’t my first dog but I was still quite clueless when it came to nutrition and even training.
My mom has always shopped at Petsmart. When you’re clueless about the kind of food you should be getting and you’re on a budget you end up getting the cheaper unhealthy dog food. Which results in poor health eventually. Hence, tumors. 3 of them. Now I know better. I feed him Zignature dog food. Sure it’s a bit pricey and can only be found in smaller pet shops but if you look at the ingredients and everything it stands for, its darn worth it.
So having learned my lesson I made a vow that from now on I will feed my dogs good dog food. Grain free. And now that I will be getting a new puppy, I take you on my adventure.
Having a dog isn’t just about having a dog. There’s their nutrition; knowing if they’re allergic to something. I have seen many cases where people complain about their dogs scratching themselves or licking their paws and still refuse to spend more than $20 on dog food. It’s not about you. It’s not about your budget. If you can’t afford a dog then you shouldn’t probably have one. For everyone’s sake. Training; you can’t just let your dog bark all day or all night long. If it has social anxiety you have to treat it. Many of these behaviors can be altered. You’ve seen the Dog Whisperer. It’s not about the dog, it’s about who’s training the dog. You have to work on that. I can go on and on but you get the point. It’s a challenge being a dog owner. A pet owner in general. So you must ask yourself, am I ready?
