Woo with Bamboo @Gaiam dog bowls

Pocky can’t wait to dig into tonight’s pre-dinner snack, served in her new green bamboo dog bowl by Gaiam.  But she knows the drill- first tricks, then treats.  “Sit!”  “Paw!”  “Lay down!”  “Roll over!”  “Good girl!”  OK, now for the toughest trick of all…

"Stay, Pocky! Stay!"
“Stay, Pocky! Stay!”

The temptation to chow down is killing her.  What’s worse is that Momo can’t read- it clearly says “DOG” on the bowl.

Momo wants in on the bamboo action too!
Momo wants in on the bamboo action too!

After patiently waiting, the time has come.  “Go ahead and eat, Pocky.  You’ve earned it!”


Pocky’s bowl is by Gaiam, the creators of pet & earth-friendly pet products.  This one was made from recycled bamboo fiber and rice husk.  It’s lead and cadmium free, FDA approved, SGS certified and made in the good ol’ US of A.   It’s big enough to fit 24 oz of goodness for your pup.

Holidays Are Upon Us — @chloeandisabel Have the Shiny Stocking Stuffers You Need!

Chloe + Isabel is one of my favorite accessories lines because not only do they create pieces that inspire (and everyone wants!), but they’ve set up a wonderful merchandizing platform that allows gals to work towards their goals, one piece of jewelry at a time. Gals who sign up to become Chloe + Isabel merchandisers make 30% commission on personal sales, can earn unlimited free jewelry, shop the collection for themselves at 30 – 50% off, and even create their own personalized boutiques. It’s a fab way to kickstart your career!


Last week I was lucky enough to visit Chloe + Isabel’s Spring 2014 Jewelry Collection in their showroom in downtown Manhattan. And if there’s one word to describe this new line from Chloe + Isabel, it has to be “amazing.” These new pieces are inspired by many elements and feature everything from vintage designs and marine-inspired colors to bold metals and flashy stones.

Here’s a few pics of the Spring collection:

estate vintage

Estate Vintage Collection: Necklace ($128) — wear this necklace as a dazzling layered piece or clip off the other two strands for a more simple look.

Spiraling Waves Collection (my fave!): Necklace ($168) — How can you resist a piece like this? Incredible colors that come together with vintage-inspired embellishments.

bold metals

Metals Collection: Necklace ($148) — This one is completely customizable and allows you to wear it in so many different ways!

Chloe + Isabel also had great holiday gift ideas:

And I went home with these little cuties — Chloe + Isabel’s “Be Mine” sterling mismatched studs ($35). I love them!

Delicious Snacking: @PomWonderful

It’s Pomegranate season! POM Arils are in season from October – February so make sure you pick some up at your grocery store. Even with all the Youtube videos on how to remove Pomegranates easily, it is still not easy as to pick up a cup of Pom Poms!  You can eat these or make them into a smoothie like I did along with a banana!  The cups are resealable for easy snacking and can double as a cute hat for your dog 🙂

POM POMs Fresh Arils are available at grocery stores in the fresh fruit department
