Why You Should Own A Dog

It just adds a little extra to my day because of the love I feel coming from her...They are just so freaking cute. Need I say more?

Why You Should Own A Dog

As a proud owner of a beautiful chihuahua I want to share with you some reasons I believe you should own a Dog.

1. Endless Cuddles

They will cuddle you until you just can’t anymore. My little one likes to jump on my bed or the sofa when i’m there and likes to rub her head on my arm or my stomach. It just adds a little extra to my day because of the love I feel coming from her.

2. Companion at all times

I mean at ALL times. They follow you everywhere around the house. Unless my little one is sleeping you better believe she is right behind me all over the house. Not only that but she is there when I don't have anyone to comfort me. If i’m upset she instantly knows and will try her be to comfort me.

3. Prepares you for responsibility

Having a dog is not a thing that should be taken lightly. It is a great responsibility and although some people don’t like the comparison it can be like having a child. You have to feed them and make sure they always have water. And also make sure they get outside on time to use the restroom or pick up the little potty pads. Not only is it physical things like grooming but also emotional. You need to have time to be with them and show them love and play with them or just simply sit there a scratch their belly. O and let’s not forget about the little whining in the middle of the night sometimes.

4. More exercise

You will get more exercise! You can take them out for a walk or run. You can also just play around the house. They will always have a great time running after you.

5. Protection at all times

Your dog will always make sure you know someone has arrived. Literally every person that has stepped on our property has been announced by her. So you will definitely know if there is an intruder.

6. Happiness

I believe you will be happier and so do most scientist. It is said dogs can help reduce stress and relieve anxiety !

7. They’re just cute

They are just so freaking cute. Need I say more?

Although there are multiple reasons you should own a dog you should always remember they require time and love. If you don’t think you will have time to play or just cuddle please don’t get a one.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
