Doggie Essentials

We recently became parents to two wonderful puppies, Gandalf and Dumbledore. They are only 1 month old and are currently being weaned and we cannot wait to have them! They are the cutest Chihuahuas and we couldn’t be more in love with the 2 little munchkins.

And like all new parents we have started prepping :) I have created a pinterest board (found here) which includes training tips, homemade treat recipes and other puppy essentials. Here are some of the things I am currently lusting after :)

Month #2


Where on earth did January go?

It is day nine of February and a lot has happened. I started a new job last week and I love the people I work with, I am still working on my morning routine (time to wake up in order to eat a decent breakfast). Thankfully its downtown which means I take the train to work and I can read. I am not a fan of driving during rush hour so this is a dream come true.

Working in a corporate office is interesting. I have a cubicle and it’s lacking personality, also the lighting it’s less than ideal.  So to bring life into my little space I plan to bring a small lamp to improve the lighting and some baby succulents along with some of my favorite items (picture frames, pretty notepads, etc). I’m sure it’s going to take me sometime to make it look and feel just right.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
