Gee, Pack’s the Place for Pup Pics

Gee, Pack's the Place for Pup Pics

Image sharing is all the rage these days.  So when I found a site that combines fun photo edits and my love for my Chug dog Bohzie, I was all in.  Enter Pack.  Pack is the ultimate social media platform for dog lovers.  Users upload fun moments and elegant portraits to their breed specific “Pack” page, and they can then add cute word graphics.  The image above is one that I posted during a Thanksgiving image contest, and it is by far one of my favorites.

With Pack, you can even link to your Instagram account to do automatic pup postings when you use #(your dog’s name)!  They’re still a relatively new social channel, so they are making great little enhancements like this all the time.  Pack is all about celebrating those little magic moments with your special furry friend – and that’s what makes it such a unique channel that is worth barking about.


Gee, It’s Time To Be A Summer Child

24 May

The summer season is upon us. The time of warm nights, pleasure reading, those reliable flip flops, and carefree spirit. Year after year, summer evokes a sense of youthful bliss. No matter how old I get, I never want to lose touch with this summer spirit.

I have always loved summer fashion. As a little girl, I relished in the sweet and vibrant styles of the warm summer months: the free flowing “twirly skirts,” the pretty girl “babin’ suits,” and of course the sparkly pink jelly sandals. Oh yes, summer fashion was certainly a treat.

Just because I’ve grown up a bit, in both size and style, doesn’t mean I can’t still have fun with my summer wardrobe. I still love frilly bathing suits, though I prefer the two piece nowadays. The example on the right is a clutch Target purchase…proving fun summer suits don’t have to cost a fortune.

Summer is also a good season to bring out the vibrant, flashy colors that tend to hibernate during the winter months. The pages of Vogue and InStyle are filled with bright colors like marigold and cobalt blue.

Summer is definitely not a “no frills” season. Embrace your inner child, and let some playful energy into your wardrobe. But please, skip the pink jellies.
