daisy new nb treats

Natural Balance introduced 15 new treats this month, and as a brand ambassador, Daisy got to sample several of the varieties. We’re super excited to give you the inside scoop AND share a coupon with you so that you and your lucky dog can try them, too!

L.I.T. Immunity Support Jerky

L.I.T. stands for “Limited Ingredient Treats” and are especially good for dogs like Daisy who have lots of food sensitivities and tummy issues. Salmon is her favorite, but they also come in Duck and Chicken formulas. They are grain-free, and contain antioxidant vitamins C & E to help support a healthy immune system.

L.I.T Hip & Joint Jerky Treats

Also available in Duck, Chicken or Salmon, this version of Natural Balance Jerky Treats is made especially to help promote healthy hips and joints. Made with Glucosamine and Chondroitin, these treats are great for active dogs as well as older dogs.

L.I.T. Jumpin’ Stix & Mini Jumpin’ Stix for Dogs

Stix treats

These were the first treats we opened and tried when we received our samples and Daisy is TOTALLY in LOVE with the Venison & Sweet Potato formula! These come in both full-size sticks as well as mini sticks and are super easy to break into little pieces, which I like to do with all of the semi-moist treats to make them last longer and to use as training treats.

Mini Rewards Dog Treats 5 Calories or Less

Mini Rewards

And speaking of little training treats…these new mini-rewards are the perfect size to use during training sessions or any time you want to reward your dog for good behavior. They are great for keeping in your pocket on a walk, or to put in an interactive treat toy. Each treat is 5 calories or less, and are super yummy according to Daisy (lamb and duck are her favorites). I love that they contain no corn, wheat, artificial flavors or colors.

Check Out My New Eyeglasses from Firmoo (And WIN A Pair For Yourself!)

new glasses

A few weeks ago, a company called Firmoo asked if I’d like to try out their service and offered me a coupon code for a free pair of glasses in exchange for my honest opinion about them. I usually wear contact lenses but have been needing to get a new pair of prescription glasses so the timing was perfect! I was also pretty curious about the whole process because I’d never ordered glasses online before.

The first thing I noticed was how GREAT the prices are! There are loads of really nice styles under $30, and Firmoo frequently has FREE Frames promos and coupon codes to help keep your total cost low. Even if you don’t need prescription glasses, you can order just about any pair with tinting and have some awesome sunglasses! Visit Firmoo HERE to see what free frames or other offers are going on now.

Firmoo has some great tools to help online shoppers select the right size, style, shape and colors. I knew I wanted something with plastic frames in a bit of an oval shape. I’ve got glasses that are very square, so I thought it would be fun to get something different.

Summer fun is in full-swing and the last thing anyone wants to think about is pet safety…but it’s more important than ever to be informed and prepared. Nearly one-in-five lost pets goes missing after being scared by fireworks or other loud noises, so this new pet safety app from ASPCA is particularly timely for the July 4th holiday and summer storms that are commonplace this time of year!

This Pet Safety App features:

  • A personalized missing pet recovery kit, including step-by-step instructions on how to search for a lost animal in a variety of circumstances. This kit was developed by ASPCA pet care experts and based on the latest field research.
  • The ability to build a lost pet digital flyer that can be shared instantly on social media channels.
  • Access critical advice – even if there’s no data connectivity – on ensuring pet’s safety before, during, and after a major storm or disaster.
  • Store and manage pet’s health records.
  • Timely, relevant updates from the ASPCA about the latest in pet news and animal welfare.
  • Built-in ASPCA Twitter and Instagram feeds.

Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry from Sitara Collections ~ Review + Giveaway

Sitara handcrafted jewelry

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it so it’s time to start thinking about getting Mom something special! Sitara Collections recently invited me to review their work on my blog, and sent me a few lovely pieces from their handcrafted artisan jewelry collection. One lucky reader is also going to WIN something to keep for themselves or give as a gift!

Sitara Collections is an online boutique specializing in handcrafted, artisan jewelry, home decor, gifts and fashion items that you won’t find anywhere else. All the items they sell are handmade and the company supports fair labor practices to ensure that all their artisans are fairly paid for their beautiful work.

Although my photos don’t do either piece justice, they’ll still give you a great idea of what you can expect if you order something for yourself or to give as a gift. Each item arrives with a gold gift box and beautiful drawstring jewelry pouch. You or your recipient also receive a card explaining where the jewelry was handcrafted, and about it being fairly traded. Because the sale of Sitara Collections pieces helps support women artisans in locations such as India and Latin America, it’s a really nice idea for a Mother’s Day gift; give your mom something special and help other women support their families, too!

I love these earrings!

Aren’t these earrings gorgeous?!? When I saw them online, I just knew I had to have them! The color is more vibrant than my photos portray. These Pear-Shaped Gemstone Drop Earrings come in Smoky Quartz, Green Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Chalcedony, Garnet, Green Onyx and Black Onyx. The ones I’m wearing are the Chalcedony and I love them because they look as great with a ponytail, t-shirt and jeans as they do with a sundress and sandals.

stacked bracelets

I also love this beautiful Carnelian Om Bracelet. It looks gorgeous on its own but I have several other silver bracelets from Mexico, Thailand and India and love wearing them all stacked together. This one adds just the right pop of color! Sitara Collections has a really nice assortment of bracelets, so whether you like to mix your metals and gemstones or keep it simple, you’ll find some amazing arm candy to match your style.

In addition to the handcrafted jewelry, you’ll also find lovely home accents and textiles, handbags, hair accessories and wraps plus Ayurvedic health and beauty products and even stuff for kids and babies. Each time I’ve shopped the site, I’ve noticed that they offer a discount code for your first order, so be sure to keep an eye out in their Shop, or sign up for their newsletter. Right now, the offer is 15% OFF with Sitara Collections promo code SAVE15 at checkout. You can also visit them on Facebook for more photos and other offers.

livefree dog food

Since LiveFree is a relatively new dog food, I thought I’d give you a little more info on what it’s all about, and why Dogswell added this new line to their offerings. (This post is sponsored by Dogswell. We only present info, products and promotions that we feel will be of value and interest to our readers.)

LiveFree is a holistic line of ultra-low glycemic food for dogs available at independent pet retailers across the United States. It’s free of grains and potatoes, which are common high glycemic fillers, and high in animal protein sources to align with a dog’s natural diet.

What does “ultra-low glycemic” mean?  It means that the specially designed recipe helps prevent spikes in blood sugar levels and supports slower digestion and sustained energy for proper absorption and healthy weight. For dog food, a glycemic rating under 55 is considered “low”. LiveFree’s dry dog food recipes range from 9-11 and their canned dog foods range from 3.5-3.5

glycemic info

Concerned about your dog’s digestive health? LiveFree dry food recipes includes natural DigestiBits, a proprietary blend of pumpkin, eggs, prebiotics, probiotics and 11 antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies to deliver digestive fiber.

What’s NOT in it? There is no corn, wheat, grain, soy, gluten, tapioca, BHA/BHT, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

LiveFree also has added nutrition for your dog’s overall holistic health including antioxidants to support immunity plus vitamins and chelated minerals for better nutrient absorption. You’ll be happy to know that LiveFree is made in the USA.

If you have specific questions about your dog’s nutritional needs, digestive concerns, blood sugar or anything else, chat with your veterinarian for medical advice and dietary recommendations. You can visit the Dogswell website for nutritional info, including ingredients and calories.

Be sure to snag this printable coupon for $3 OFF LiveFree Dog Food.  And don’t forget to enter to WIN LiveFree Dog Food for the life of YOUR dog!
