Gift Guide for the Dog Lover

I'm so excited to bring you guys today's holiday gift guide. This one is for all of the #dogmoms out there (and #dogdads). My husband and I have a German Shepherd named Emma (who is currently in a time out for pooping inside...again), but just like our other kids, we still love her. We'd also really love it if she'd quit going potty inside, but that is beside the point. The point is there is no shame in spoiling your sweet fur baby, especially during the holidays!! And while some of these gifts are items for your dog, some are great gift ideas for the dog lover in your life too.


The Dogist 2018 Wall Calendar by Elias Weiss Friedman author of The Dogist, for example, is the perfect Christmas gift for someone who loves dogs.



These super cute Christmas Plaid Dog Collars by Mr. Bow Tie Boutique would be the perfect holiday gift for doggies and dog owners alike! Whether you have family holiday photos coming up, or you simply want your furry friend to look festive for those…

10 Crafty Ways to Recycle Your Magazines

 I have fashion magazines, health magazines, decorating magazines, cooking magazines. If there was an AA for magazine readers, I'd be in it. And I would never make it a whole month sober.

But as a self-proclaimed green girl, I can't very well throw all of these away. And even recycling isn't 100% green. Not all of the items recycled actually get put into new products. And even then, recycled products are rarely made from 100% recycled materials. It's always best to reuse if you can.

Lucky for me, crafters have reached leaps and bounds in the last few years of the rapidly growing green trend. There are all kinds of crafty ways to remake your trash into treasures. Boutiques and etsy shops are popping up everywhere with upcycled and repurposed goods. On the downside, some of those items are very expensive.

So, what's a green and cheap girl with piles and piles of magazines to do? Get crafty, of course. Here are the best tutorials from around the web on how you can give new life to an old magazine.

  1. Recycling helps the earth because it could save animals, it could save birds, puppies and all kinds of them. A lot of the animals that recycling helps to save are the ocean animals. There are a lot of animals in the ocean that mistake trash for food. They're eating things that we could be recycling. Check out this video: http://youtu.be/-H51E2gwXwc

  2. It's always a good practice to recycle magazines and other materials so we can help our environment. We need to preserve mother nature to prevent floods and other disasters. I usually use biodegradable plastic bags when shopping.
