Do You Know The Five Signs Of Pet Wellness? #WellnessPet #PetSmart

This post is sponsored by Wellness and the BlogPawsTM Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share the availability of Wellness Products at PetSmart, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Neither Wellness nor PetSmart is responsible for the content of this article.

You guys. YOU. GUYS. Lucy is a year old!!! Can you believe it?!?! I seriously cannot even comprehend that my little tiny puppy baby is one year old! It's so crazy to me! This past year has flown by. She has grown so much, and in some ways, it feels like we just brought her home, but in other ways, I can't imagine a time in our lives when we didn't have her here with us. She has changed so much in the past year! 

I've changed in the past year too. I mean, I have had pets before, you know, random dogs and cats that had somehow found their way into my life, who I cleaned up after and stepped over. But now, I am a REAL doggy mom. She is my baby, and I have become a REAL pet owner this time around. I find myself worrying about her just like one of the kids. I spent countless hours teaching her to use the bathroom outside, and I have researched just about anything you can think of, from the best pet beds, to hip problems in German Shepherds, to "I think my dog hates me". (Not even kidding guys.)

When it comes to my babies (furry or not), wellness is the most important thing. That's why we are so excited to be feeding Lucy  Wellness® Complete Health™ dog food for the next three months. I'm so excited to really be able to focus on her health needs, and in my opinion, that starts with better nutrition. I feel like now that we are out of that "let's survive until tomorrow" puppy stage, that now we can really get down to making sure that she is the healthiest doggy that she can be! 

It was so much fun to check out all the great Wellness products that PetSmart has to choose from! According to Wellness, there are five important signs of wellness to pay attention to when it comes to your pet. Those signs are: 

Skin + Coat

Digestive Health

Eyes, Teeth + Gums



When you have a young dog like Lucy, I think it's really important to pay close attention to the five signs of wellness, because we are really setting the stage for the rest of her life, and starting her on a good path to keep her strong and healthy for as long as possible. That's why I love feeding her Wellness Complete dog food. Wellness Complete features high quality ingredients that are a great source of protein, to provide all dogs with better nutrition. Here's what Wellness Complete does to provide the five signs of wellness to all of their furry customers!

Skin & Coat: Essential vitamins and minerals as well as guaranteed levels of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, support your dog’s skin, coat and health.
Energy: A balanced blend of high-quality proteins, grain-free carbohydrates and select fats provide the energy your dog needs to thrive.
Digestive Health: A combination of healthy fiber, chicory root extract and probiotics help support healthy digestion.
Eyes, Teeth & Gums: Guaranteed levels of Vitamin A help support healthy eyes while calcium and phosphorous help support healthy teeth and gums.
Immunity: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables and nutritional supplements such as Vitamin E help support a healthy immune system.

When it comes to skin and coat, I feel like this is an especially important area for a German Shepherd. She is really prone to shedding and dry skin, so having a food with a good supply of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids is especially important.Digestive Health is also really important when it comes to wellness in your pet. While Lucy is still a very young dog, that doesn't meant that I am not concerned about her digestive health. I feel really lucky that we haven't had any digestive issues so far with her, even though she has (and continues to!) eat anything and everything in sight! (Most recently, her attention has turned to any and all remote controls... more on that later!) Healthy eyes, teeth and gums? Come on, those are some of the most important things when it comes to animals, so I'm glad that Wellness takes this into consideration. As far as energy goes, we have a definite high energy pup on our hands! Keeping her energy levels high is a very important thing to me. Finally, when it comes to immunity, I don't think there is really anything more important for your pet. They have to have a healthy immune system so that they can combat whatever life throws at them!

If you are not certain that your dog food is providing your dog with the five signs of wellness, you might want to consider making the switch just like we did. When you feed your dog Wellness Complete, you can see the signs of true pet health and well being for yourself! To find a PetSmart location near you, click here!

#HolidayGiftGuide: Fiskars PowerGear2 Lopper!

You guys, I am about to share a product with y'all that has been LIFE CHANGING for us in our home improvement journey! As some of you know, we recently paid off our little fixer upper house out in the sticks, and while we are pretty sure we are going to be upgrading houses in the future, we are for sure going to be on this little spot of land for the rest of forever. That being said, we have SO much work to do around here. Probably the biggest hurdle that we have to tackle is our overgrown fence line. There are random overgrown trees EVERYWHERE, taking over our property and just making things look super gross. We have probably 100 feet of fence line to tackle and get ahold of, so we were very nervous as to whether or not we could handle the job! 

We recently got the chance to review the Fiskars PowerGear2 Lopper, and I am in love. This one little product has made our yard work SO much easier. I am a lopping pro at this point, and I am going to tell you guys everything I love about this product! First of all, these products from Fiskars have revolutionary PowerGear technology, which helps to maximize leverage and more than 3x the cutting power with every single cut. We have several pair of old junky loppers around the house that we had been trying to use to clear out our fence line, but after I got my hands on these bad boys from Fiskars, I really can tell the difference. These loppers can cut through things that our other ones can't even touch! 

I'm telling you guys, I have cut through probably hundreds of branches with these loppers so far, and our blades are still sharp, and everything is working just as well as it did on day one! We have a ton of pine trees as well that we are cutting down, and the protective coating on these loppers have helped to repel the yucky sap and keep them from gumming up. 
I'm telling you guys, these are just a super cool product, and I know that we are going to get years and years of use out of them. I'm a girl, and not a very strong one, and I am really able to kick ass with these! I am not getting tired, I'm not wearing myself out, and I don't even have any blisters! 
Seriously, you guys, look at this branch. It's like 2 and a half inches thick, and I am cutting ones just like this all day long with no issues. I love these things, and I am so impressed with the job they have been doing. Some reviews that I have read have had some complaints about having to have the handles pulled all the way apart in order to chop big branches, but we haven't run into this problem at all. These loppers have done an amazing job with any task that we have challenged them with! 

As you can see, the loppers make a very smooth cut, every time, which is great! I am really impressed with their ability to stand up to any test that we have put them through. I am sure that there are bigger products like this on the market, but for what we are doing around the house, these are completely perfect for us, and at $48.99, the price is right! 
We still have so much work to do around the house, but these loppers from Fiskars are really making it a much easier task than we originally thought it would be. Make sure to follow Fiskars on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Youtube to stay updated with their latest products, tips and tools to help you with any job!

Cut Back On Chemicals With Molly's Sud's Laundry Powder!

Today I am really excited to share a great product for you guys that is safe for all people (even the littlest ones) and the planet as well! Molly's Suds is a great company with a little bit of a sad history. Here's a little more about them: 

About Molly’s Suds

The company came about in a very unexpected way. Founder Monica Leonard’s daughter, Molly was born in 2005, but she never took a breath. As a pediatric nurse and mother to three other healthy children, this was a tragedy and shock. Seeking a cause, Leonard uncovered disturbing facts about chemicals approved for use yet untested for safety by the U.S. government. The decision was made to create Laundry Powder and other household products that are safe for people and the environment. Molly’s little footprints are on the company’s website and packaging to remind customers that Molly’s Suds products are safe for even the tiniest family member.
Molly's Suds laundry powder is safe for both people and the planet. I LOVE the fact that Molly's Suds detergent is comprised of only FIVE Earth-derived ingredients. I also loved the fact that it is very long lasting. You only use one tablespoon per load, which makes the powder last even longer. I hate when I buy a huge thing of laundry soap, and I feel like it's gone in no time flat. My sample from Molly's Suds is lasting longer than any of my other detergent. 

With Molly's Suds, you are getting a product with no chemicals, no toxins, no carcinogens, no fillers, and no GMO's. I love that I can get laundry that is really clean and smells amazing, without having to use harsh chemicals, etc. I'm going to be completely honest when I tell you guys that up until the last few months, I haven't given much thought to chemicals around the house, but now, after starting to do my research about these sorts of things, I am really starting to think about the products that I bring into my house and around my kids. I am really working on making my house more environmentally friendly and a little bit safer for my family. 

Molly's Suds really is a great product, with a great backstory, and it really works amazingly well! They are even coming out with a liquid variety in the next few weeks, and I'm sure it's going to be just as good as the original. If you are trying to get rid of harsh and potentially dangerous chemicals around your house, I suggest giving Molly's Suds a try. Make sure to join them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and pinterest to keep up to date with the latest news and happenings!

Step Up Your Shower Routine With Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer!

Okay guys, we are going to tell you about something today that is going to revolutionize the way that you shower. How about skipping that awkward waiting to dry off before you put on lotion part of your shower routine and switching things up a little? Let me introduce you to Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. This is a lotion like no lotion you have seen before. This lotion is something that is actually activated by wet skin, and you use it right after stepping out of the shower. 
This may sound crazy, but hear me out. After you shower, your skin is wet, and your pores are already open. What better time for moisture to seep into your skin and get you moisturized? This lotion is a game changer, especially now that we are going into fall/winter, and dry, parched skin is definitely going to be "a thing". It doesn't make your skin feel oily or greasy, which is the biggest thing for me when it comes to moisturizers. It really does moisturize, it does a great job and lasts all day. I love, love, love that it cuts one step out of my routine and lets me lotion up straight after the shower. With dry skin season coming up, I am going to be prepared this time around thanks to the folks at Curel! 

Don't forget to visit Curel on Instagram and Facebook to find out what amazing products they are going to come out with next!
