When Things Get Messy with Your Fur Babies

Do you have a fur baby in your home? Sure they are adorable! And there is nothing like a sweet pup excitedly wagging their tail when you come home after a long day. But let’s be real! Things are not always so cutesy! Sometimes they can get downright messy! When things get messy with your fur babies not to worry! 

Whether your fur kids are puppies getting potty trained or ageing dogs you may find yourself having to clean up the occasional accident. Or if your dog has a medical issue things could be much worse than a small tinkle. 

Several years ago my Barkley was diagnosed with diabetes. I found out something was wrong when upon returning home from work there were puddles all over the house. Fast forward a few years and his diabetes is controlled by insulin and a very specific diet. However, there is still an issue with accidents. At least several times a month he will pee in his sleep. This can lead to loads and loads of laundering doggie beds and blankets. Now though thanks to Pet Magasin’s dog diapers accidents will be a thing of the past! When Things Get Messy with Your Fur Babies

Pet Magasin, a small company that specializes in all of your pet’s needs, has developed a line of diapers.

And while all of those things are helpful can we talk for a moment about how adorable these things are?! The pack of three came in a flamingo, cactus and duck print!  Continue reading When Things Get Messy with Your Fur Babies

Things I Learned While Experiencing Hurricane Harvey

It has been a little over a week since the Texas Gulf coast was hit by a real jerk named Harvey. First slamming onto land near Corpus Christi he then decided to hang out in Houston and its surrounding areas for a few days. Texans are a hospitable bunch but Harvey was not welcomed. Sleepless nights of watching your street turn into a river. Continuous news coverage of people in anguish after losing everything. Red Cross helicopters flying over your home on the way to carry out rescue missions. It has been a truly devastating situation. In any tragedy though lessons are learned. These are the things I learned while experiencing Hurricane Harvey.

Rejuvenate your Skin with the Perfect Cocktail

Having a good skincare routine is so important. Aging is inevitable but by taking proper steps to stay ahead of Father Time one can look younger much longer. I would never lie and tell any of you that I am the poster child of healthy eating and getting my proper nutrients. I am obsessed with sugar far more than broccoli. However, one thing that I have never skimped on is skincare products. The right lotions and potions can make such a huge difference in your skin. My latest find is Jan Marini’s C-ESTA Serum.  Rejuvenate your skin with the perfect cocktail!

You Can Have Good Hair in Texas

There are quite a few stereotypes about Texas girls. One of those is that we love big hair! While that stereotype is true try having hair up to the heavens in humid Houston weather.  It is not a feat for amateurs that is for sure! But you can have good hair in Texas! You just need a little help! 

Day after day I curl my hair before going out and about. Unfortunately, the moment I step outside it generally falls into a sad state leaving me left with the feeling that I did all of that work in vain. I have tried product after product to get my curls to stay. Most didn’t hold up to their promises. And then came Kenra into my life!
