30 Things I Wish My Dog Could Actually Understand

30 Things I Wish My Dog Could Actually Understand

Oh my god, did you seriously just eat that? Ew.

I don't think I'll ever be capable of loving anyone more than I love my dog. It's an obsession that I'm not afraid to share. Spending time with my precious pride and joy that I call my canine friend, I continuously think, "What if you could understand me when I talk to you?" What would I say? What would I continue to say to you that I already tell you already? You might not understand me, my pup, but if you could, boy would you get an ear full.

1. Do you know how much I love you? Like I REALLY love you.

2. Please, just look when I'm trying to take a selfie with you. It's really not that hard.

3. I'll only be gone for two hours, I swear I'll come back soon. Stop looking at me like that.

4. You just ate, how are you STILL hungry?

5. Why don't you like to cuddle? I don't understand.

6. I think you're the prettiest/cutest thing I've ever seen. Do you know that?

7. Oh my god, did you seriously just eat that? Ew.


9. No, this is chocolate. You can't have that.

10. It's 3 a.m., now you want to play?

11. It's raining and I have no pants on. Hurry up and go to the bathroom before the neighbors see me.

12. I wish you could talk back to me.

13. I wonder what your voice would sound like.

14. Never die, okay. EVER.

15. Alright, pretend you didn't just see me do that.

16. I'm not drinking alone if you're home, right?

17. I wish I could text you when I'm not at home with you.

18. Ugh, you know I would give you more food, but you'll get fat.

19. Can you go back to being a puppy for just like fifteen minutes? You were so cute.

20. Why do you hate the mailman? I thought that was something you only see in the movies?

21. I'm not cheating on you. I pet that dog for 2 minutes, but I'm home now.

22. I can never have enough pictures of you.

23. That's the TV, stop barking.

24. Can I just take you with me to work?

25. I can't wait to dress you up in outfits that you hate.

26. I literally don't deserve you.

27. What was your nightmare about?

28. How do you shed SO much? I don't understand how you still have hair left on your body.

29. Alright, stop making me think that someone's in the house. What are you barking at?

30. You're like my best friend, you know that.

Just Because I Check My Boyfriend's Location Every Hour Doesn't Make Me A 'Psycho Girlfriend'

No, checking his location every hour does not make me psycho.

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for a few months now. He has come up with describing my actions sometimes as “psycho girlfriend.” As much as this bothered me at first I started to realize there is nothing wrong with my “psycho” actions.

I don’t monitor who my boyfriend hangs out with and I don’t care who he texts, I trust him, but I do watch other things he does.

I probably check his location about once an hour, maybe more if he isn’t texting me back.

This isn’t some way for me to find out if he is with another girl, it’s so I can ensure he isn’t dead in a ditch somewhere. If he was on Snapchat five minutes ago but hasn’t texted me back in 45 minutes, yeah I’ll call him out on it but I'm not actually mad. If he is with friends and not answering me, it’s cool. I just want to be able to make sure I know where he is and that he is alive on a regular basis.

I make him keep his read receipts on for me.

I don’t care if he leaves me on read, I just need to know he is seeing what I’m saying. Half the time, I text him random facts or thoughts I have throughout my day, those don’t always need a response back. However, I do want to know he is acknowledging me through reading my texts.

Yes, from time to time I will spam him and make him respond to my messages so we can make plans or I can know what he is doing with his day but it’s not like I plan out his every move for him or care if he is getting drunk with the boys on a Wednesday, not my issue.

I don’t ask for all of his time or anything. I know he is a busy person. All I ask for him to text me back on a regular basis (once an hour to be exact), for him to allow for me to know where he is at all times and to get one night a week with him.

I don’t plan to show up where he is or anything, I simply just like to know information and get a weekly time with him. I don’t care if I only see him that one night a week, I just want one night with a movie or dinner or snuggles so I can get my boyfriend time.

The rest of the time he is his own person, and I couldn’t really care less about what he does in that time.

8 Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands To Fill Your Makeup Bag

8 of the best makeup brands to shop cruelty free.

If you know me at all, you know I am a sucker for a good cruelty-free brand. And with the rise of vegan bloggers and YouTubers, it's not at all hard to find good suggestions.

Buying cruelty-free means that the brand you are buying doesn’t test their products or the products' ingredients on animals in any way. Some brands are also vegan, which means the products don’t contain any ingredients derived from animals. Although a brand may be cruelty-free, they might not be vegan. If that is important to you, make sure to check the ingredients list.

Here's a list of my favorite cruelty-free brands, ranked from saves to splurges.

1. ELF

We all remember the days of middle school, tagging along on drugstore runs to pick up milk, begging our moms for the cheapest makeup on the shelf. ELF prices really set the bar high (or low). ELF cosmetics has been with everyone through every stage of their lives.

ELF's vision is all about empowering and educating women! Elf is also a partner with PETA in the Caring Consumer Project and doesn't use ingredients derived from animals either.

Their products range from vibrant colorful eyeshadows to natural everyday palettes. There is something for everybody, so if you're in need of a matte or dewy setting spray, incredibly soft makeup brushes, or a pretty blush, ELF is the way to go.


Colourpop products range from super shock shadows to liquid lipsticks, highlighters, and even concealers. Colourpop began in 2014 and have since climbed the cosmetics ladder, becoming one of the most praised cosmetics brands out there.

Their "About Us" section states, "we test our products in the nicest way possible, leaving fur babies to be fur babies and experimenting on people instead (the people at ColourPop HQ to be exact!)."

Their dedication to developing all their products cruelty-free is just one of the many reasons to buy from them.

3. NYX Cosmetics

NYX has unbeatable prices for high-performing, super-pigmented makeup that comes in very extensive shade ranges. Their Total Control Drop Foundation is a must-try for gals looking for a versatile foundation, simply adjust the number of drops until you've reached the coverage you are feelin' today.

According to PETA, NYX has been committed to cruelty-free testing since 2010.

4. BH Cosmetics

Not only is BH Cosmetics extremely affordable, but it’s committed to being a high-performing, cruelty-free makeup brand.

"They are glam, affordable and all about color," according to Marisa Pieper, a Her Campus writer. "Their goal is to help customers express their individuality one bold, brilliant and beautiful color at a time."

They also have tons of collaborations with celebs like Ashley Tisdale and beauty bloggers, such as Carli Bybel and Shaaanxo.

5. Pixi by Petra

Pixi by Petra is a makeup and skincare brand developed with botanicals and beneficial ingredients. Pixi doesn't test on animals and they also aren't umbrellaed under other parties that test their products on animals.

Pixi is a little more expensive than your usual drugstore makeup brand, but it is still available at your local target. With Pixi, you get cute packaging, high-quality ingredients, and no animal testing. Serious score.

6. Milk Makeup

Milk Makeup serves up a new unique way of makeup. The range of products and color range make making a bold statement easy. From their iconic holographic highlighter to their cult favorite blur stick, every product is a must in your day to day makeup look. What is better than a brand that prides themselves on giving a truly unique and simple packaging look and cruelty-free products!

7. Tarte Cosmetics

Tarte products are already formulated free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sulfates, gluten, and synthetic fragrances, and they're also cruelty-free.

You know what this means? The cult classic, Tarte Shape Tape is 100% cruelty-free, good thing cause no one ever wants to give that up.

8. Kat Von D Beauty

Priding her company on being cruelty-free, with some products being vegan as well, Kat Von D has evolved into a company with a strong cult following. The Lock-It foundation is known for being so full coverage it'll even cover tattoos.

Kat says “We are bold, unapologetic, outspoken and different in our own way. We are artists, poets, and lovers. We are the outsiders and the insiders.”

On top of being cruelty-free, Kat Von D is working to become 100% vegan. Vegan products are currently listed as #VEGANALERT on their website. This list currently consists of an eyeshadow palette with 24 shades, perfume's, and brushes!

Each of these brands have tons of must-try products, all while refraining from animal testing. Yay for keeping animals safe and healthy!
