Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

This post was written a few months back while visiting Los Angeles (I got out for good this time because I served two full sentences there and have not looked back since) and I have been so busy that I did not get around to sharing then but am making time right now! This is an important post and describes the difference between a celebrity and influencer in snarky terms, of course. Ahh Hollywood. You never cease to provide me with ample amounts of snarky material to address on this here blog. I love you for that (and just that)…. Continue Reading

Throw a Pet Pawty With Evite Invitations & Win The #PawtyPeople Contest

Throw a Pet Pawty With Evite Invitations & Win The #PawtyPeople Contest

OMG! Be forewarned, this is one of the cutest things you will read all day! Evite just launched a new Pet Party Themed category with invitations and correspondence cards. How cute is that? I can’t get enough of the options on the Evite site. Seriously? Where does one start? I wanted to throw a football pawty for Teddy since he is named after Teddy Bruschi (the football player, of course) and they had the cutest Evite on the site. Look! LOVE! Touchdown! But, the problem is there are no football games on right now and I want to throw Teddy… Continue Reading

My Top Dog Teddy Brewski Digs TopDogDinners

My Top Dog Teddy Brewski Digs TopDogDinners

You all know Teddy Brewski is my child, I mean dog (same thing) so I am super picky about everything I feed him. I watch what I eat so shouldn’t I be concerned with what my fluffy, four-legged best friend puts in his belly? He is already Internet famous so I need to keep up his athletic figure to ensure he is happy, healthy and enjoying every second of his fame and living up to Teddy Bruschi football player status. Plus, recently I discovered that small dog breeds are prone to lipid deposits on the eyes, which means they can… Continue Reading

Bye-Bye Fine Lines: Win $305 Of Derma MD Exclusive Beauty Products

Happy Wednesday people! I am back and obeying doctor’s orders spending only 20 minutes on and off the computer at a time. This is challenging for sure but you only get one set of eyes and you better bet that I am going to do everything I can to protect them! If you don’t know, I had a little accident and have been out of commission for the past two weeks. But, during that time away from the computer I have been able to test, try and fall in love with a beauty and cosmetic brand called Derma MD. The… Continue Reading

Putting The Eye Back In MelanysGuydlines: Dr. Stephen Cohen Of Doctor My Eyes

Putting The Eye Back In MelanysGuydlines: Dr. Stephen Cohen Of Doctor My Eyes

Happy Friday! I know it has been a few weeks since I have written a post. This is the longest time since starting my blog that I haven’t posted and it feels a little weird and a little eye opening (pun intended). I had an accident on my way to the Blogpaws conference two weeks ago. I was rushing because I am always totally over-committed and stabbed myself in my left eye with a round bristle brush. It hurt. Badly. I was and am mad at myself that I created this injury and tried to shake it off the best… Continue Reading

Give Dogs A Voice When They Can’t Speak For Themselves: Stop The Yulin Dog Meat Festival And Slaughter of Dogs in Asia

Give Dogs A Voice When They Can’t Speak For Themselves: Stop The Yulin Dog Meat Festival And The Slaughter of Dogs in Asia

I just received this PSA and I thought it was so important to share with all of you. Please share to spread the word and be a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves. These images from the Yulin Dog Meat Festival are horrifying but if sharing this torture can help in any way than it needs to be seen! Please help stop the violence! Stop the Torture. STOP! I don’t normally do this but this is too important and I must share. I am on my way to Blogpaws this week and thought this needed to be shared… Continue Reading

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

Another year. Another Birthday. But, this year is going to be the best yet because I have been reciting my mantra and putting these things into place. It is one thing to say them and it is another thing to actually do what you say. So, for my Birthday this year: – I am not doing anything I don’t actually want to do. – I am not feeling obligated to anyone. – I am only doing what makes me happy. So, if you missed it here is the mantra…… Sound like a plan? I do have a little wish though…. Continue Reading

Melany’s Mantra: Repeat, Rinse And Repeat

Melany's Mantra

Every morning I swear to repeat this mantra. I am going to print it out and hang on my mirror. It is the summer and I want to take some time for myself while still being able to do the things I WANT to do. This means not feeling obligated to do things others think I SHOULD be doing. Here we go. Cue the chanting music and theme lighting. Add a candle and throw in some incense but please spare me the Nag Champa. I think I left that scent back in San Francisco on Haight Street when I was… Continue Reading

You Can Learn A Lot From A Dog

You can learn a lot from a dog!

Yes, you can learn a lot from a dog. I learn from Teddy Brewski every day. I mean, I learned last night that dogs will eat everything (even asparagus) if the opportunity arises. I will let you know how that goes. But what I really want to share with all of you people is this. As I walk Teddy Brewski and watch him walk his favorite walk every day and he always takes time to smell the roses. He also let’s someone else (me) deal with all of the “garbage”. I have decided to let go of a lot of… Continue Reading
