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…

My Makeup Picks for Spring


I have a few new favorites for Spring when it comes to makeup. Like most of you have, I assume, Ken and I have spent the new year replenishing some things we needed and buying a few brand new things. Out with the old, in with the new, as they say. We got things like clothes, yoga gear for him, and makeup for me.

I grabbed a few new Maybelline lipsticks, some new pink nail polish, and the Maybelline Master Blush Color and Highlight Kit.






The nail polish is Sinful Colors nail polish in 24/7 Pink. It's a bit more neon than I thought it was going to be, but I still loved how it turned out. It's the kind of pink that will be great through summer as well.

The beautiful creamy blush pictured above is the e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Blush in "Rose Royalty." Upon first glance, I thought, how can this be "bare," because it goes on very colorfully and isn't very glossy once you get though that shiny top layer. But after I applied it and blended it in, the color does look very natural and subtle. It isn't great for creating a dewy look, but it does have a more creamy and soft finish than a powder blush. I would call it matte cream blush. It's perfect for a soft, natural spring look.

For anything from a quick errand to a romantic date with Ken, I've been using the new Maybelline blush palette for a quick, pretty spring look. The colors are so beautiful. I use the highlight color on my eyes, along with the mauve shade. I apply a quick base coat of the shimmery highlighter over my lids, then I swipe the mauve over my cheeks and over my eyes (just underneath the brow bone to the outer corners), and I'm ready to go.

The two new lipsticks I got weren't typical spring shades. Maybelline fans are all about the new Nudes collection this season. But after I saw the colors in person, I just couldn't see them looking good on me (I have a very olive complexion). The shades I picked were "Crazy for Coffee" and "Plum Paradise." Crazy for Coffee is such a great neutral for darker skin tones. It is my new favorite shade of all of my lipsticks (which is saying a lot). Plum Paradise is a very pretty shade as well. It's very wearable for daytime, but it's pretty enough for date night too.

What are some of your favorite makeup products or colors for spring? Let me know in the comments below!:)
