Wanted to kick off the holiday season with a gift guide for our cats and dogs AND for cat and dog pet lovers. Let’s be honest, all us pet parents love to spoil our fur babies so why not get a head start. Also, can we talk about HOW…

Happy Monday friends! Excited to finally be diving hard into some new knits. I LOVE sweater dresses and this one is going to be a staple this Winter. When it comes to finding a perfect sweater dress, I don’t like ones that are too…
