If there is one thing I get a little out of control with my spending, it’s gotta be eyewear. I just can’t get enough. Lately I’m going through a cat eye phase. I’m really digging the hollywood glamour of the look, and Mr. Harvey agrees (he’s been known to channel Elizabeth Taylor from time to time). Here are just a few styles catching my “cat” eye these days.

I don’t care what anyone says, what anyone claims, what anyone preaches, I’ve never met a Pit Bull I didn’t like. Yes, like with any breed (and race or creed for that matter), there are always the bad seeds. Those few in the majority that create a stigma for the others. But as an open minded human and equal opportunity dog-lover, I’ll never pass judgement on an entire breed based on the actions of the few.
The Pit Bull has gotten a bad rap in the past, and only in recent years have I noticed the launch of many campaigns (such as Tara Metzler’s PSA posters) to help educate the masses on the true nature of these smiley pups. (They really do smile at ya!) I hope that as the fight continues, more and more people realize the beauty behind this bully breed and open their hearts and homes. This one goes out to those playful Pitty pups.

Growler is not kidding when they claim to have “uber cool stuff for dog lovers.” Upon landing on their homepage, I was immediately sucked into their world of canine chic.
I am a particular fan of their current selection of pup portraits. As I’ve said in the past, dog photography is all about capturing the emotion behind the eyes, and this collection of Gerrard Gethings work does just that.

I think the Greyhound may be one of the most misunderstood breeds around. Yes they are slender in shape and petite in stature, but these guys pack a lot of personality in their tiny frames. I’ve often heard the Greyhounds come off snobby and elite (which is a crazy thought to begin with about a dog), but those Greyhounds I’ve come in contact with are anything but.
Here are a few fun products dedicated to the lovely hounds of grey…

Have you ever gotten stuck in a rut? Doing the same thing, day in and day out, not being able to get out?
I’ve been in that state of mind time and time again. I sit and spin, and often times, complain about my situation without any plausible solution on how to get out. And the next day I wake up, and start the same routine.
Then one day, I woke to a moment of inspiration. Instead of eating cereal, I made scrambled eggs. And instead of turning right on our morning walk, we turned left. And instead of heading straight to the computer after my shower, I headed to the balcony to drink my coffee in the sun.
It was a day to break my routine.
These simple changes didn’t necessarily rip me out of my rut, but they did adjust my mindset and allow me to start fresh that day.
It’s simple. Try it. Say no to the routine one day. Mix things up. See where it takes you.
I hope it’s a thought full weekend for everyone!
