First off, mypuppy already LOVES his Dogswell Breathies Chicken Minis. By "love" I mean he'll give up his full size chicken jerky treat for ONE little round mini treat. Maybe he's spoiled in being able to just chew and eat instead of breaking a piece off to eat, but nevertheless he loves it!
More recently I found Dogswell's new product line called Veggie Life. There are various flavors like Sweet Potato fries/chews, Chicken & Banana, Chicken & Apple, and the one I bought which is Chicken & Sweet Potato (mypuppy doesn't eat bananas and apples too much...more of a meat eater like his mommy). Let me just say, once I opened the bag and sniffed the goods I was hungry! It smelled sweet and potato like. Okay, I just described sweet potato, but it does smell terrific. Nothing dog like about the scent! I was tempted to take a bite and see what mypuppy was getting...but I didn't. I would definitely recommend this product to anybody who loves to spoil their puppy and who have picky eaters!
I'm a big fan of Dogswell due to their great processing in their Natural Cage-Free Chicken through a vigorous process to make sure it's always approved US FDA tests. All their products are actually good for your puppy. Their Vitality line has flaxseed and vitamins for overall well-being. Their Breathies line (mypuppy's favorite!) contains mint and parsely to freshen breath while your puppy enjoys his treat. The Happy Hips and Happy Heart lines can be used on any dog at any age as it helps by adding glucosamine and lower sodium to the line. There's also Mellow Mutt which contains natural herbs like chamomile to help calm a fussy puppy. As for Veggie Life it's $7.99 for a 5oz bag, but well worth every penny if mypuppy will eat it!
mypuppyandi definitely give this 4 paws up!

Oh mascara, how you save me from my small eyes looking tired and dull. I've been dying to try a blue mascara lately. As you can see from my CL talk I have a thing for BLUE at the moment. The blue of this YSL mascara is so electric! (let's go back to dreamland and imagine the blue Loub's with this blue YSL mascara. HAWT!) Black mascara already helps lift those eyes and make them stand out. As for blue mascara it will do the same, but make the eyes POP. At the same time I think blue mascara (and eyeliner!) is exotic and casual chic. This YSL Luxurious Mascara comes in Black, Blue, Brown, Burgandy, Violet, and Green! Each only $26.50.
Many people have their own way of applying mascara. Depending on what look you are trying to get it should be applied a bit differently.
This is my regime:
- Curl eyelashes! (She Uemura is my best friend) Start at the lid of the eyes (not too much so you don't pinc yourself!) and slowly crimp again towards the middle of the lashes and then move out the the end of the lashes for the most natural look.
- Take your mascara and start again at the lid of the lashes and wiggle the mascara up through your lashes. Keep doing it until you got all the lashes especially the ones on the inner and outter corner of your lids. Those can get tricky.
- Optional - Some people like to take the mascara and go over it from the top down to coat the top side of the lashes. I find this makes my eye lashes droop a bit from carrying the thickness of the mascara, but it totally depends on the type of mascara you using.
- Lastly, double check that all your lashes are not clumpy (if they are, use your finger to gently pull out the clumps) and individually separated (this helps a lot with a great mascara).
- Go out in the world and be the fab chick you are!

I must say my mom raised a daughter with terrific taste at an early age. I remember being no older than 8 years old and being in the perfume store with my mom. The salespeople would always come over to me and say "how cute" and blah blah (i've realized they didn't mean it, it was only a sales pitch) and sometimes the manager would give me a bottle of nail polish or a lipstick to take home. Why are they so nice to me you say? Well, for one, they know my mom would do anything to make her little girl happy. Another reason may be her little girl has exquisite (aka expensive) taste. I still remember being 8 years old and smelling Joy by Jean Patou and being enchanted by the notes of jasmine and other sweet floral scents. This was my favorite fragrance at that time and I HAD to have it. Back then, a bottle was $100. That was a lot then! I stared at the bottle and even took a few whiffs of the scent lingering on the spray nozzle, but I never used it because I loved it so much. The sad part is, I come home one day and realize my bottle is missing. My mom tells me she had a friend visit and gave her the perfume as a gift. I was devastated! Yes, the scent was THAT good. I was looking for a fragrance and it came into mind after all these years.
Jean Patou's fragrances have all natural ingredients. In fact, the Jean Patou house has a field of Jasmines and Roses (can you imagine the scent in that area?!) in South of France. The company was acquired by Proctor and Gamble in 2001, but I believe they are sticking with 1920's methods of perfumery. A 1oz bottle is now going for $400, but keep in mind this is parfum which is concentrated and more oil based than alcohol based. In other words, it lasts longer and the scent is a little more unique.
Take a sniff and tell me if you feel the same way as I did and still do.

Oh my...these shoes are TDF (to die for)! I'm a very simple girl. Since mypuppy chewed up my 3 pairs of black pumps I have been on a search for some new shoes. I don't know what it is about CL shoes...actually, I do...it's those darn red soles that make the shoe pop and the great design and fashion of the shoe. These pumps are timeless in the black. As for the blue...MY GOSH!...that electric blue is the new red! Imagine blue mascara, white button down blouse, some white slacks, and these awesome blue pumps. Wowsers.
These Christian Louboutin New Simple Pumps are $675 and available for pre-order at Saks.
If you watch Side Order of Life on Lifetime you will remember Vivy having cancer and splurging on these shoes. If you have that much to spend...all I have to say is "you only live once".

When I saw this Juicy Couture dog tag I had to laugh. It's so cute! I know my puppy would love one of these because he loves his daddy! Normally I would think $35 is too much for a dog tag, but this one is very much something to consider. I would get it engraved in the back and make sure to put daddy's number. If one day this comes into use (let's hope it never needs it!), the $35 is definitely worth it!
I am loving the Juicy Dog line this season! First off, it's been a bit cold in SoCal and I really think mypuppy needs a jacket! Especially a fashionable one to impress the lady pups out there. This Juicy pink parka (also comes in black for the studs) is $75 and will last all winter (that's about 3 months! If you calculate it's only about 83 cents a day. Not like I calculated or anything...) Isn't your puppy worth 83 cents a day? If your answer is YES, click HERE!
Another item I am really really loving is this harness set retailing at $95. It's great that they are creating harness sets in addition to their leash sets. Leashes are just so harsh on their little necks. These are great and very ergonomic (and couture) for our puppies. In addition, it's a better version of a regular harness you would buy. Since the style is more like a vest, it gives plenty of porportional support to comfortably fit your puppy. If you're still rationalizing on the price, if you take the leash off you can use the harness itself as a fasionable vest! Available at most stores that carry Juicy dog items.
Your puppy will thank you!

Oh my...I absolutely LOVE this Juicy lip gloss ring! Big chunky rings are definitely a must this year and this one tops the list. I love the bling factor to this ring. I love the white because it makes it less fancy and more fun. Oh yeah, I love the sparkly pinky lip gloss too! It's only $52 which is a great deal considering the price of a Juicy Couture jewelry item is already that much if not more. I think this will make a great present for a Juicy gal. Once you're done with the gloss in the ring you can always refill it with another lip gloss or lipstick (warm up your lipstick tube under the light or in the microwave for 5 seconds and mold into the ring OR take the remainder of your lip gloss tube and fill it up...don't overflow!...in the ring. VOILA!) $52 at Nordstrom!

I ADORE this Juicy Couture Fragrance set! If you haven't smelled the fragrance yet it's a flirty fruity scent. Great for both day and night. This set includes: Eau de Parfum with atomizer (1 oz.), travel-ready Royal Body Creme (3.4 oz.), Sumptuous Sugar Scrub (3.5 oz.) and a precious solid perfume compact. The thing I love most is the great box it comes in. This is something I can use as an addition to my jewelry box (i'm always running out of room!). It's very durable like all juicy packages. The perfume compact is so great for the purse. I love the all metal look because it gives it that mystery that keeps people wondering what's in that silver square? This is a $398 value that is only $150 at Nordstrom. Get it while it lasts since it's a Holiday item!

Today is the last day of the Kiehl's Friends and Family 20% off. I am getting the Shampoo $16, Conditioner $16, and No Rinse Spritz $12 for my puppy. I find Kiehl's products to be very natural and never heavy in fragrance which I'm sure my puppy will appreciate. I'm excited about the No Rinse Spray. First off, it's CLEAR which is good since you are not using water to rinse. I think this will be great for in between bath clean up. Also, for those days his paws get gray! For 20%...it's the best time to give it a try!

Yuck. Black soap? That's almost like rubbing tar on your face you say? Well, it's not and if you've tried it you'll know it's not gross at all. This is Erno Laszlo's Sea Mud Soap...
Dr. Erno Laszlo was a Hungarian Dermatologist who created treatments that spread through word of mouth in 1939. He had such an extraordinary amount of clients he decided to open his first store on Fifth Ave in New York.
First off, I'll say this is the soap used by Audrey Hepburn. If she used this soap and looked the way she did, I can only HOPE by me using the soap I can look half as good as she did. This soap takes concentrated deep sea minerals which deep cleanses the skin. (If you'll recall, La Mer also uses concentrated formula from the sea with sea kelp...something good is in the sea! You don't see dolphins or whales with wrinkly skin do you?) If you like your skin feeling clean you'll like this soap. I'm sure it's great for oily skin since it purifies. I have normal skin and it doesn't dry out my skin at all. It seems a little pricey at $36 a bar, but don't underestimate how long this will last you. I would say a bottle of cleanser lasts 3-6 months. This should last you over 6 months (unless you put it in the shower and let it melt...don't do that). I must say...after this soap Erno Laszlo is my friend. Buy it here at Nordstrom

By now, you probably considered going with the black nail polish this last year. All the celebrities had black nail polish whether it was casual day out or fancy night out. Some celebrities like Paris Hilton and Hilary Duff are still rocking the look. Personally, I like darker polishes on my toes and neutral colors on my fingers. I just can't stand chipping polish! When I'm grubbing on my fried chicken I don't want to wonder if I'm eating some of that black polish into my system. As surprised as I am that this color lasted so long and is still lasting I can understand why. It's actually pretty darn cool! It's almost like an accessory where it revamps your look. You can wear sweats, but be like a rockstar wearing sweats.
My favorite is Chanel's LIMITED EDITION Black Satin is the most coveted color during this phase and is STILL in high demand. The US version is much more chic because it has a platinum shimmer in it. No, not glitter. It's a shimmer woven in the black. Makes it less punk, but still very edgy (main reason I chose Chanel's black over other brand's black). In addition to their own creation on black, Chanel's polishes seem to last longer on me (so I don't have to worry about it while eating my fried chicken!). It glides on smoothly and the color always looks great. I don't think I've bought a bad color yet. The Limited Edition Black Satin color is sold out in stores everywhere....BUT...
Having purchased WAY too many beauty items, I managed to score some of Chanel's Black Satin and have decided to make it available for mypuppyandi readers. If you are interested send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

Wondering why Maquillage doesn't sound familiar to you? Well, if you're from the states you wouldn't have heard of it because it's not sold here. Let me introduce you to this secret brand.
This is a branch of Shiseido (it's like their drugstore brand). I think their shadow palettes are quite impressive. They have everything you need to create a look without having to think which colors go where or which colors to blend. If you look at the first palette with the greens, it has the yellow for all over, the green for the lid, and the silver to illuminate the eye. The green on the bottom left hand corner is a gel form eyeliner! You can always play around with these, but if you're too lazy to coordinate...you don't have to. The second palette is the same concept. I LOVE that it has eyeliner. That's what sold it for me.
Another great product is this face powder. I love versatile palettes. It just makes sense to get something you can use with everything right? This palette is great because it has multiple colors to blend with many skin tones. Don't you hate it when you can't find that EXACT shade? I find I'm always a little to light or a little too dark. With this, you can kind of blend your own. Especially in the winter and summer months when you either drop or increase in a shade. This can be a great value in that it's usable all year long.
There are only a few online sites that offer this brand. One that I trust is SASA. They are a big cosmetics company in Asia. The site also has deals and promotions year round. Compared to Sephora, they offer 7 free samples and free shipping with every purchase of $75 or more.

The holidays are around the corner and many of you will gather your loved ones in your own home or your friend's home. There are many ways to be agreat host/hostess and one of them is simply keep your house smelling delish. You've heard of air fresheners that spray, plug-in, light up, heat up, etc. Juicy Couture introduces Juicy Couture
Pebbles Of Couture Fragrance Rocks. I think this is a neat idea that instead of messy potpourri that crumbles into a billion little crushed pieces these are rocks that are quite easy to pick up if spilled. They are in a multitude of colors to match with any home decor. This will definitely be a conversation piece when guests ask "what is that great fragrance you have in here?" or "what do these couture rocks do?". If you're interested in getting one for yourself this season or gifting one as a gift or housegift visit Saks Fifth Avenue for Juicy Rocks priced at $45.

For those that aren't familiar with Nordie's Customer Appreciation Day...you basically get 10 points per dollar spent during this event. You have to have a Nordstrom card where you normally would get 2 points per dollar or 4 points on double points events, but now you get 10 points! You get a $20 Nordstrom Note when you reach 2000 points which means you only need to spend $200 on Customer Appreciation day to get $20 back! That's equivalent of about 10%. Yes, start pre-saling and open a nordies card if you don't already have one. Here's a secret...Customer Appreciation Day is November 28th! heard it at mypuppyandi first!

i've tried over and over again to explain why i REALLY need a closet for my puppy. i have one, why should he be deprived of one? one reason is because he needs to be able to see all his outfits in order to put them into use. you can't wear something you can't find! and if you can't wear it, you're technically wasting the money you spent on it. another reason is because he needs his own space (and i need mine!). most importantly, he needs it because he wants it. now, to add on to my list is that if i buy now i would get 6 free hangers! You can buy this one from G.W. Little (such a cute store!) Doggie Armoire $119

SUNBLOCK. SUNSCREEN. You know to use it when you're going to the beach or going swimming, but what about everyday use?? Unless you live in a cave without any windows, you need something to protect your skin. Let's start off understanding what sunblock is and what sunscreen is (you thought they were the same didn't you?!). Here's the simple version. Sunscreens contain chemicals that ABSORB the UV rays. Sunblock reflects the UV rays. Most people are more familiar with sunblock. That's the one that makes you look ghostly white. You need at least an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 15 which means you're protected out there for about 5 hours. Of course that depends on the weather as well. You can't expect to be protected in 98 degree weather and be protected with SPF 15!
Alright, now we have our facts straight let's get on with the products...
ME: My favorite is from Clarins and it's an SPF 40. What I love most about this product is that it's SO light. It feels silky on my skin. It doesn't leave any residue. It works as a great base for my makeup as well. I love it! It helps knowing I have SPF 40 no matter what the weather is like. Even when the sun is behind clouds, there are still UV rays shining at you so don't be fooled. Clarins is available at most department stores and sephora for $39! It's worth it if it'll save you money from spending more on correcting fine lines and wrinkles in the future! clarins sunblock
MY PUPPY: I use Chris Christensen's "Ice on Ice". This is a leave on conditioner that conditions, protects, and even better it has sunscreen! It doesn't really have a smell which is nice because I can use it daily without it being too overwhelming. My dog is white so this helps with helping keep him as white as possible and not turn into a baby golden retriever. My puppy likes the spray nozzle on this because it doesn't have a shooting spray, but it's more like a mist. He doesn't like the funny feeling of other spray nozzles, but he sits still for this one! Here's Chris' site...the combs are GREAT as well. ice on ice for $10!
