Good morning all! These past three weeks have been such a doozy for me – dealing with my brother-in-law being sick, then dying, and then his funeral; this week I’ve been sick (and my kiddos too!). Sometimes it’s hard for me to stay positive when I feel stressed out because then I get anxiety and I get depressed. Then I don’t feel inspired or connected to blogging, which makes me anxious and depressed and oh it’s a sh!tty cycle!
One thing that always helps ease my anxiety and depression is cuddling with my cats. If you’ve seen my instagram, you’ve seen the two new kittens that my husband brought home. Now, I grumble when it comes to adding new ones to the family, mainly because the responsibility for feeding and caring for them falls to me (yay! ), but these two kittens and my older cat really do brighten up my life.
I realize that I’m rambling here, but I really do have a point! I know how much my pets help me in my life, and I know how other people take comfort from their pets. For the month of October – Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, one of my favorite indie polish makers, ALIQUID Lacquer, has created a limited edition charity polish, Puppy Love. Let’s take a look at Puppy Love, and I’ll fill you in on the details!
The reason that Alison created Puppy Love was because of their dog, Trudy. “You might know that the lovely lady on our polish labels is Trudy, our five-year-old rescue pit bull mix. Trudy is such an irreplaceable part of our lives that we can barely remember life before her!”
My pictures really don’t do this polish justice! It is a bit more green toned than I could capture, my camera likes to turn polishes more blue than they are. LOL!
Puppy Love retails for $11 (full size bottles only). We will donate $5 from each purchase to the ASPCA! We’re aiming to collect $250, but we can only do it with your help!
I really hope that you purchase a bottle of Puppy Love to help ALIQUID Lacquer make their goal, and I hope you spread the word with your polish friends and/or friends with pets. You can purchase Puppy Love by clicking here. Be sure you follow ALIQUID Lacquer on Facebook, and instagram to keep up with how they’re doing and other upcoming announcements.
I’d love to know how you deal with stress and anxiety. Do you have a pet that helps you out? To me, one of the best feelings in the world is laying down with a kitty that’s purring.
