This winter makes us all want to reach for all things pretty, counting down to putting a little spring in our step. What better way to make a splash than the Ted Baker London 'Atiri' Rain Boot (Women)?
And to put an extra touch to the arrival of spring, this Sweet Spring Floral Chintz Porcelain Teapot is a good reason to invite your girlfriends over for brunch.

And while that proved she had good taste, I knew we both were better off with her own. The folks at PupRWear were gracious enough to ship me a zebra print D&G Dorce and Garbaba Shoe Toy for review.
Functional and fashionable, it is a welcome addition to the "toys" Daddy brings home to her, which are comparable to me shopping in a big box store's shoe department. You get the picture. Even the squeak isn't as high-pitched as the others. And as PupRWear states, "Every girly pup needs a selection of heels, just like Mom's!"
But imagine my surprise when I unwrapped the package containing the shoe and found Zora's first "lingerie"; as in a Big Girl Panties and Bra Set! Think of it as La Perla for pooches!
Each piece is a squeak toy, and the paw print on both the satin-trimmed bra and panties is just doggone cute!
Make sure to visit PupRWear for gifts to spoil your fashionable furbaby with!

Sochi Olympics may be the top headlines now, but these jute-trimmed, 4 ¼" wedges encrusted with gold and silver studs will be the talk of the town this spring.

While the country braces for the polar vortex, I'm ignoring it by shopping in spring flowering bulb catalogs, sipping tea and pushing a Belize retirement to the top of my Bucket List - all while coloring my world in orchid-tinted glasses...
How pretty are the Jimmy Choo Greta suede sandals shown above? In the color of the year, the orchid ankle strap is the prettiest anticipation of Spring during our deep freeze.
Statement flats are ideal to put a little "spring" in your step, and no better way to do it than in Naya Women's Tempest Shoes (Jungle Orchid).

As I type this, my seven-month-old Min Pin is looking over my shoulder. Clearly she was an editor in her former life...
In the five months of raising Zora, we have watched her grow like a weed, drop puppy teeth, go through some kind of defiant, teenage daughter phase- all while magically enhancing our lives. But through these growing memories, what echoes most is her talent of offering silent and deadly gifts. Yes, the pup delivers the most amazing flatulence. Not to mention graphic carsickeness.
The gracious folks at California Tea House shipped me a sample of their Machu's Blend Herbal Dog Tea to review. Inspired by and named after their Great Dane dog, the herbal tea is a blend of Chamomile, Ginger Root, Fennel Seed, Skullcap and Calendula. Touted to enhance the skin and coat of dogs, as well as improve digestion from dry food and aid in the reduction of gas, it sounded just like my cup of tea!
Given the fact I have spent this holiday season baking all-natural doggie treats for her, the herbal tea compliments my beliefs in raising a holistic hound. I began the daily cuppa for her Christmas week, brewing 1/2 teaspoon and allowing to cool completely before serving. Consider it a gift for us...
After one week of her lapping it up, I am happy to report no more gas!!!!
But the diva in her still fills the air.

And in this holiday season, what's fancier than an apron tied and stilettos in the kitchen, as you go full Martha mincing, whisking and baking? Until your feet fail you and you surrender the heels...
That was me last week, so I'm head over heels about Fellow Stiletto Intellectual Lyn Butler shipping me her Still Standing Foot Spray for review.
The menthol-based spray is 100% organic with eco-distilled Arnica and Aloe, along with an ingredient called Ilex whose history stems from ancient Paraguay Indians' useage due to its anti-inflammatory benefits.
Do know what it's not; a miracle in a can. If you have blisters, cuts or ill-fitting shoes (translation: TOO SMALL), Still Standing should not be used. Having said that, Still Standing is either applied onto your bare feet or onto your stockings.
There is even a purse size to tote along to your New Years celebration. Think Spray, Dance the Night Away (repeat every 2-4 hours if needed)!
For me, I'm in the home stretch of holiday baking. But now I have happy feet as I make doggie bags full of cookies for the neighborhood pooches. Why? Because I have not had to lower my standards by wearing flats while frosting.
Now that's what you call tidings of comfort and joy!
