I like to take some time to give some love to all the ANIMAL INSTAGRAMS I’ve discovered over the past year! (pssttttt….Sam also has her own insta-g @theSamStory)

My second love to dogs are rabbits and @BunnyMama adopts the cutest buns and gives great tips on how to care for rabbits. You can’t help, but fall in love with those chubby cheeks!

I live vicariously through the traveling duo of @Andrewknapp and his doggie Momo.  He makes his followers really think when he plays #findmomo, and I do enjoy this lil hide-n-seek game because it always surprises me how well he hides Momo!

Sam is a golden retriever if you can’t tell, so it comes as no surprise why I immediately fell in love with @AllAboutBrady. She captures her dog so beautifully and every picture makes my heart melt!

And the last one for this round is @emwng and her two doggies! She’s the first doggy insta-g I fell in love with. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up, go and look through her pictures (*Warning* they will give you an extreme adorability high)

If you want to see more Insta-g dogs and donate to a good cause, you can purchase the Dog Days 2015 calendar on Etsy. All the proceeds go back to the animals!

For now I’ll leave you with this outtake picture….I don’t know why I was making that face, but it makes me laugh!

Cozy Daze

Cozy Daze V2

With colder days ahead (because winter has not hit Houston yet), I am preparing for the hibernation. I’ve started stocking up on pajama pants, hot cocoa, a ton of holiday movies and some good books!

No one needs a tutorial on how to be cozy because that’s second nature to everyone. But what we do need help with sometimes is deciding on what tools we will need in order to achieve maximum coziness! So here are some of my cozy essentials for frigid winter days.

The most crucial part to my cozy day is having a fuzzy dog next to me while I relax (Sam also doubles as my foot warmer). If Sam refuses to let me warm my feet under her then I will most likely have warm lounging socks on because my extremities always freeze over first. If you find me sitting on the couch, you can bet I’m in my PJs like these ones from Aerie, bundled up with a soft throw. Depending on my mood you can find me enjoying Netflix or reading a feel good book. You can always bet I’ll have a cute mug filled with either coffee, tea or hot chocolate. When I wind down at night, I like to lay in my bed surrounded by a cloud of comforters (like the Parachute bedding) to keep me toasty while I catch up on my favorite Youtubers. And lastly, my cozy day is not complete without candles lit everywhere. Recently, I’ve been loving the scent of Christmas tree pine or a natural fireside scent. It makes the winter season come alive in my place!

Hope you’re having a happy festive holiday week so far!

It’s Love at First Sight

Here’s a midweek cheer up! Halfway through another week and it’s a busy one! This cute illustration by Kat is a somewhat accurate depiction of how much my rabbit loves Sam’s tail. He loves to put his face in her tail and Sam hates it and hates him. You can buy this print on Kat’s Society6 page and it also can come in a cushion, tote, blanket, and soooo much more! Buy here!

The Best is yet to Come

Best1This shirt says it all…..I believe that all our best has yet to come and that we’re still destined for happier things! If you’re having troubles in your life, just remember to not sweat the small stuff and know that your best days are right around the corner! (Or you can take the fast way and do some retail therapy because that always instantly cheers me up)
