These Matching Pool Floats for You and Your Dog Take Summer to a Whole New Level!

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Living in South Florida, I really didn’t think I could get very excited about a new pool or beach accessory because I thought I’d seen them all (giant rainbow unicorn swans, I’m looking at you), but then came the launch of this Funboy x Bark collaboration and I have found new #LifeGoals!

Funboy is the creator of some of the hottest and most Instagram-worthy pool floats around now you AND your dog can live the luxe life, with your choice of matching luxury white yachts or pink retro convertible floats for the pool or beach.

These are a new offering over at the BarkShop and are sure to sell out quickly. I’d received the press release only a few days ago and already the buzz across the web has reached epic proportion, being featured by People, Mashable, PopSugar, Bustle and more.

In addition to the cool-factor, these floats are also designed with your dog in minds. They are made of thick and sturdy puncture resistant plastic and hold up to 70lbs. The matching human float holds up to 250lbs with room for two.

 

One of our favorite things about the dog floats is the reinforced compartment for treats or toys. The human version has two cup holders and a spot for your cooler, sunscreen and more.

 

 

Rae Dunn Pet Bowls and Treat Jars

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

If you are on Pinterest or Instagram, you might have noticed that you can’t go a day without spotting ceramic bowls, tableware and home goods by Rae Dunn. Personally I’m obsessed, especially since discovering the line of Rae Dunn ceramic pet bowls and accessories from Magenta. Super CUTE and no wonder Rae Dunn has developed such a cult following!

Since it’s possible you might not have heard about her work yet, I just thought I’d pop up a quick note to let you know about it. While part of the fun is the hunt (many fans scour stores like HomeGoods, TJMaxx, Ross and Marshalls to find her stuff) you can also find Rae Dunn on ebay and one of my favorite sites, Amazon.

Rae Dunn is a California native and resides in the San Francisco, Bay Area. Her inspiration comes from the earth, and she finds beauty in simple shapes, natural forms and found objects. Her utilitarian approach to designing ceramics is strongly based on the Japanese aesthetic of wabi sabi: the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. Each bowl is hand crafted and hand painted so each bowl is unique and can have slight imperfections.

Since Rae Dunn pieces sell out quickly and are each produced in limited quantities, I won’t post individual links to each item. You can see currently available Rae Dunn Pet Bowls and Accessories HERE. You’ll find popular pet items for dogs and cats including food & water bowls plus treat jars and more.

I’ve put together a pin-able collage below if you’d like to pin the image to your Pinterest Board to bookmark this post, save for holiday gift ideas, or share this post with a loved one to let them know what YOU and your fur kids want this holiday season!

Being a grownup got you down? You’re never too old for a new lunchbox or a great set of colored pencils! In fact, when I spotted this Llama Lunchbox, I knew it would be perfect for holding all of my coloring and drawing supplies.

This book of 101 Instant Sticky Happy Notes can be used in your kiddos lunchbox, your spouses laptop bag, your co-workers cubicle or anywhere you and yours need a mini message of happiness. I got these in my January PopSugar Must Have Box and have been sticking them all over the place!

Winter is cold and flu season and that means lots of hand-washing to keep the germs away! Add some cuteness to your bathroom or kitchen counter with this adorable Bunny Ring Holder. It’s got a padded base and comes in other animal shapes and colors, too.
