    1. We can’t stop watching the new Star Wars movie!!! Gah, it’s so goodddd!!!
    2. Winston has been acting so weird. He is starving himself. Like he’ll only eat one meal a day and turn his head when we try to give him food all other times. We think it’s cause he doesn’t like his current dog food anymore and will force himself to eat it once a day cause he’s hungry…so needless to say, we’re looking to switch dog food brands.
    3. I’m officially back at Pure Barre. I can’t quit it. I left for a while and tried all these different workout studios and there just hasn’t been anything like Pure Barre for me. I went to my first class in over a year on Wednesday and I am sore all over! Feels so good though :)

    1. I am working on a redesign of my site. I’M designing it myself this time! I can’t wait for it to go up and for you to see what it looks like! It’s a lot cleaner, completely different, and I’m obsessed.
    2. I’ve been looking to try a new shampoo and conditioner and my friend Jenn told me about this one. I bought the two little sample sizes to make sure I liked them before I bought the full size versions. So far, I like this brand a lot! It doesn’t smell amazing or anything (but it doesn’t smell’s just not something that I’m like OMG IT SMELLS SO GOOD) but it makes my hair suuuuper soft and silky. I can’t stop touching my hair throughout the day :) it’s pretty pricey so I’m willing to keep searching…would love to hear your favs!

    We love the new Star Wars movie too!

    Is there a chance Winston is teething? I can’t remember how old he is. You could try putting a little water on his kibble to see if it helps soften it up a bit. I highly recommend Blue Buffalo dog food if you do decide to switch brands though. I have an extremely picky dog but she loves Blue Buffalo fish & sweet potato (and peanut butter sandwiches). Amazon has it subscribe & save!

    • Julie says:

      No, he’s not teething. He has all his adult teeth already (he’s 8 months). We started giving him chicken and rice because he started having stomach issues. We bought him Merrick for when he gets better so hopefully it’ll be better. We love Blue Buffalo stuff, though! We have a bunch of their treats and jerky :) thank you!!

  • Kimberly Fieldman says:

    Hey Julie! We use Merrick as well – we just switched from the puppy kibble to all ages Real duck & Sweet potato. My female french bulldog (who is also 8 months old) is loving it, and thankfully no stomach or allergy issues. We do go thru phases where she doesn’t want to eat, but she always comes back around after a couple of days. Best of luck with Winston!

    • Julie says:

      We switched him over to Merrick chicken, pea, and ancient grain or whatever that one is. I love that they say that since all their recipe bases are the same, you can switch them between all the different proteins without having to transition them! So far, Winston is eating the Merrick fine :) thanks again!

    I am totally in love with the Wella “Enrich” line for my hair. I use the formula for coarse hair and my hair has NEVER been so soft or had so much movement. It smells amazing, works like a dream, and will not break the bank. I’m not really so sure that shampoos vary much from one brand to another, but I am 100% sold on Wella Enrich conditioner and their moisturizing treatment.

    • Julie says:

      Oh darn, I was literally just at ulta! I’ll ask my hair stylist about Wella since she does stuff with them. Thank you!
