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…

Six Steps to Kissable Lips

1. Exfoliate. Just like with your skin, your lips should be exfoliated at least once a week before moisturizing. Use a dab of olive oil and sugar to gently scrub your lips then rub off with a damp towel. You can also use a toothbrush and petroleum jelly. If you're in a rush, you can also use just the damp towel.

2. Moisturize from the inside out. Avoid junk food and fill up on water.

3. Moisturize on a daily basis. Use unscented lip balm several times a day, especially before bedtime. Try to use lip balms made with less preservatives and chemicals and go for ones made with beeswax and natural oils like coconut, almond or sunflower. I love Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm.

4. Plump your lips. If you weren't blessed with plump, full lips you can prime them with a collagen lip plumper. I wouldn't use this everyday as it isn't all-natural, but definitely swipe some on underneath your lipstick before a big date.

5. Don't cake on lipstick. Guys do not want to kiss that. Go for a lip stain or lip pencil and coat it with gloss or lip balm.

6. Pick normal colors. Seriously! I mean it. I don't care what is trendy. If you're going out with your girlfriends, wear whatever you want. But if you are going on a date, for the love of God, do not wear lipstick that is bright orange, bubblegum pink or glittery...especially not glittery!

  1. Some really good info here. Don't you hate it when lipstick is really caked on, or the color just isn't right for that person?
