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…

Melt-Proof Makeup Picks


One thing Ken and I have really noticed here in Texas is the heat! I've lived in other parts of the state...more southern, where the temps are high, but the humidity is much lower. Just north of Dallas, however, we are dealing with a bit higher temps than we're used to, as well as just about the same amount of humidity as we had in Oklahoma. And the sun is just so darn bright. I've had to switch up may makeup routine this summer to include some more melt-proof products.

In this kind of weather, I find it's best to stop fighting it and just go for more natural coverage for everyday, like a CC Cream. If I need more coverage, however, I'll layer the CC Cream underneath a long-lasting matte foundation. For a melt-proof foundation and powder, I absolutely LOVE the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless line. I've been using it for years, and ever since I first tried it, I've used nothing else when it comes to powder.


On the lips, however, I've set aside my favorite Maybelline lipsticks for months now. I had the pleasure of sampling the new Lancome Matte Lip Shakers, courtesy of Influenster and Lancome, and I am so pleased with the product. It's a liquid lipstick that functions more like a lip stain. It's very buildable, the finish is matte but velvety soft, and the color really does last all day long. Once it dries, it is completely smudge proof. It does dry the lips a little bit after continued use, but not nearly as much as the other long-lasting lip colors I've tried, so it's definitely worth the price! For a more glossy finish, try the Lancome Juicy Lip Shaker.

For the eyes, I used to be a big fan of the new kohl liners, but here they just melt off in no time. For a warm-weather eyeliner that will last all day long, no matter how humid it gets, a liquid liner is just the thing! I use the NYC liquid liner in black, though it can be a bit tricky to apply if I'm in a hurry. I wouldn't mind investing in a great felt-tip liquid liner.

What are some of your favorite makeup products for summer. Let me know in the comments below!

  2. I definitely agree, when it's extremely hot and humid, the last thing you want to feel is heavy pounds of makeup on your face! I've never used that foundation before, but I've used that same line for concealer and love it! As for the lip shakers, I'm glad you love them, they're just too cute and I like the color selection, I have to give them a try! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead, beautiful!
