Follow House of Harvey on Instagram

Hey y’all,

My apologies for not posting this past week….or into this next week.  I am off on an adventure and timing has been a bit tricky.

So while I am away, I hope you’ll follow along on Instagram  (@HouseofHarvey) where I’ll definitely be posting some fun pics, past and present, for the next couple of weeks.  I’ll be popping into the blog to say howdy and share some fun shoots we did too, so stay tuned!



P.S. Are you and your pups frolicking in the grass now that summer is here? GO DO IT!!!

Tiki Time | House of Harvey

It’s tiki time!!! We are celebrating a lot of things here at our House as of late, so we decided to have a tiki party.

Is there a more fun theme for a festive outdoor fiesta? We think not!  In the end, Harvey was a little pooped out, so he decided to ‘tiki’ a nap….it had to be done.

Taking time off | House of Harvey

It’s time to take a break.  I decided a while back (after this post actually) to take more time to take time off.  It’s so important to your sanity and your wellbeing to stop what you are doing from time to time and really focus on the art of relaxation.  And while my “time off” is not necessarily a traditional version, I will be taking a few days here and there away from the blog to collect my thoughts and generate some new ideas.

In a world of “go go go” and “the next big thing”, it is easy to get sucked into the whirlwind of life.  But we mustn’t forget that the best, most innovative ideas come from a refreshed and relaxed mind. It’s just a fact.

So as I go on an adventure for the next month, I hope you bear with me, sit tight and maybe even tag along for the ride.  (More to come on these adventures soon enough!) It’s going to be interesting to say the least.

I hope it is a thought full weekend for y’all!

Shar Pei | House of Harvey

It was about time we tackle an obvious favorite breed, the Shar Pei.  Yes, Harvey happens to be part Shar Pei (part unknown terrier), but my love of this ever-so-wrinkled breed began long ago.

I’ve always had an affinity for wrinkles, both of the canine and human variety, and what more adorably wrinkled creature is there than the Shar Pei?

FUN FACT: Shar Pei’s lose their wrinkles as they age.  They are the true fountain of youth, on four legs. I know my Sharperrier is keeping me young, at least.

Beach Favorites | House of Harvey

Although I live about 30 minutes from the coast (and such a beautiful one at that), it shocks me how little time I’ve dedicated to lounging on and enjoying the amazing beaches of SoCal.  This summer, I plan to change that.

In order to fully embrace this new, beachy lifestyle, we’re gonna need some swag…right?  Here are a couple of items on the wishlist.
