BATH FAVORITES

Bath Favorites | House of Harvey

To me, there is nothing better than a bubble-filled tub, a glass of vino and a good book/episode of Veep (loving this show!!!) to end a hectic week.

So to continue our week of clean, I thought I’d round up some fun bath products for both me and the pup.  Mr. Harvey WILL be getting a bathrobe of his own.  You can count on it!

P.S. How fantastic is that shower head that doubles as a radio?! Dreams really do come true!

Bath Time | House of Harve

There’s nothing better than a good spring cleaning…right? This may not exactly be the kind of cleaning you have in mind, but for Mr. Harvey, it means getting some tub time outdoors in the amazing weather.

As a part Shar Pei mix, Harvey has an obvious  hatred  of water.  (He’s also a born and bred Angeleno, after all – resisting the rain at all costs.) So needless to say, bath time can be a struggle at times…until I found a foolproof solution: bath time + play time = best time!

The team at Dogtails generously sent us a sample of their new shampoo, so I decided to give it a whirl. I have a feeling Mr. Harvey thinks is tastes as delicious as it smells.

Appetizing or not, the Harvmeister couldn’t resist a taste.

THOUGHT FULL FRIDAY 14 // ANOTHER YEAR

May 3, 2013

On my birthday | House of Harvey

Today is my birthday.

I’m 29 in human years (ancient in dog years).

While I might have written a post about the fear that comes with aging, or about all that I’ve learned in the past year, I’ve decided to keep it simple and real. Real simple.

I’m grateful. I’m blessed. And I’m ready for anything.

So here’s to the magical, terrifying, and eye opening events that are surely in store for me during year 29.  May I come out stronger, wiser, happier, and just a little older.

Thanks for joining along on the ride.  It truly means the world to me.

The future looks bright.

Cheers,

Steph

 

CAMPING FAVORITES

May 1, 2013

Since shows like Survivor Man and Man vs. Wild have been on the air, I’ve been daydreaming of living out similar adventurous scenarios (obviously much more tame).  In my version of “adventure,” I get to bring along some amazing gear into the treacherous wilderness. A vintage plaid vest and tin mug are essential to my survival!

So in honor of our outdoorsy theme this week, I’ve rounded up just a few of my favorite camping items.

Summer is quickly approaching and I have camping on the brain. (Full disclosure: I’ve never been legitimate camping before.)

Yes, I’ve spent my time in backyard tents roasting marshmallows over the BBQ, but I’ve never ventured into the great outdoors, to sleep under the stars and pee in the woods. It sounds like magic!

I truly hope I get the chance/make the time to pack up my gear, my pup and some friends for a rugged camping experience. Whether it’s on the beach, in the dessert, or on a mountain top, I just need to soak up some nature this summer.

And if you can’t tell by these pictures, I think Mr. Harvey is ready for some adventure of his own!

Side note: I’d been looking for a rugged travel backpack for a good long while, but could only find ones I liked for the big bucks (my wallet won’t allow for such luxury at this time). And then, BOOM, an impromptu trip to TJ Maxx landed me with this $50 beauty. Don’t you love when that happens?
