Finding Fido

I love my job but what I love even more is giving back to organizations that do amazing, selfless work in this world.

Currently, I joined the Z Living Entertainment social media campaign promoting their new T.V. shows. One show on Z Living is called Finding Fido and about giving dogs a chance in finding a forever home. Working this campaign gave me the opportunity to nominate an outstanding animal shelter for a grant. I nominated Wonder Dog Rescue in San Francisco which… Continue Reading

My Resolutions: Guyd For 2017

Take time to stop and smell the roses.

This year I am going to try a few new things. I am going to stick with these promises to myself because that is what resolutions are – aren’t they? I better or I am going to be really upset with myself. Plus, I will have no one to blame but me. 1. Make appointments in my calendar for “ME” time. Seriously. I have two “meetings” a week labeled in my calendar as “Zumba” and at least one titled “Golf Lesson”. I work hard and these “meetings” help with my sanity. The only way I can consistently attend them is… Continue Reading

How To Find The Best Online Dating Site

Thank you to Sara Altschule for this post and the information about how to find the best online dating site. It can be confusing with so many options. Right? Well, let Sara break it down for you. Take it away…… You rarely ever hear someone say, “I love dating! It’s so easy!” And if you did, you’d probably want to give one big eye roll in their direction. Dating isn’t easy at all.

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.

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

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
