iDeal of Sweden- Review

Recently I have collaborated with iDeal of Sweden and tried out one of their phone cases.  It’s safe to say I’m OBSESSED. They have a variety of beautiful designs, from prints to leather.

As a lover of all things green and botanical, I chose the Monstera Jungle Case for my iPhone 7 Plus. The case itself clips on really easily and the detail is beautiful.

These phone cases are the most glam I have ever seen!

Here is the reality of trying to take photos with a dog present.
We got a Puppy- Amber!!

We got a Puppy- Amber!!

Today was a super long day, but totally worth it! We got a puppy! Our family of five (including Jim, our 10 year old Border Terrier) grew to six with Amber.

As I write this I’m in bed, having listened to her bark for 51 minutes straight (and counting!). It’s honestly heart breaking. She was one of ten golden doodle puppies and naturally she’s missing her Mumma and sisters. My room is right above the kitchen and she is piercingly loud. For a little Afro ball she sure makes one hell of a racket!

So we have known about picking Amber up for some time now and we were SO EXCITED. And she certainly didn’t disappoint. We picked her up at 11 this morning, after leaving home at 7 am, and met 2 of her sisters who were super cute! If I could I’d have honestly taken all three home. The breeder did however have 5 of their own and just from looking at the size of them… having more than one would be a nightmare!! We then brought her home and introduced her to Jim.

*moment to celebrate… its been silent for a whole minute! Hopefully she’s fallen to sleep!! Eeek!*

Jim absolutely loved her. It was so interesting to watch as we really weren’t sure how Jim would react. Part of the reason we got Amber was to keep Jim company. Being 10 years old, going on 11, with my younger sister being 14 and everyone being out of the house more, we wanted him to have a companion. Golden doodles are meant to be brilliant companion dogs and are great with all ages- so, despite being considerably bigger than Jim, she was perfect.

Jim has (what we call) “Little Dog Syndrome” whereby he gets agitated by other dogs on walks, most of the time because he feels threatened.

Well today he was (just about!) the bigger dog, and she was totally aware of the pecking order. She copied everything he did, from eating grass (and greatly disliking it and ultimately spitting it out) to weeing up the washing line… a great habit inherited from Jim.

They did laps of the garden all afternoon and it was so interesting watching them interact. She has, what I think is, a bum that could give Kim Kardashian a run for her money and a strut sassier than Beyoncé. She sort of wiggles her bum, and often when she runs it looks as though it’s catching up with her- which is adorable!

Toys-wise: we bought several toys for her specifically, but she’s far more interested in Jim’s toys and vice versa. She is equally interested in people’s feet as she is a fluffy toy and has nibbled toes once or twice this evening.

Amber also appears to have some sort of infatuation with the herb plant pot outside the backdoor. In particular the Rosemary. Likewise she has taken on the Acer tree a couple of times.

She’s unbelievably clumsy, her feet seem too big for her body and for some reason she seems to walk into EVERYTHING. She is a typical clumsy puppy, with a little extra sass and a bundle of character.

She’s perfect!

*update: she’s wailing again and every now and then Jim gives a low grumble as if to say ‘send help’… it’s gonna be a long night!*

Deadlines, Burritos and Pina Colada

Deadlines, Burritos and Pina Colada

16th May 2016

Last week was a mash up of emotions!

  • Handed in two massive pieces of coursework. There is no denying it felt amazing. I feel as if I am finally getting the hang of this whole writing essays thing.
  • Officially finished all my lectures and seminars in my first year at University and I am beyond thrilled. Though, I still have an exam to revise for and a webpage to make.
  • Watched ‘Marley and Me’.
  • Beat my record distance on the treadmill at the gym and went every day last week with my friend Hannah. Plus I have even started doing the mini exercise routines by Lucy Wyndham-Read in between revision- they’re so quick and intense, I love them!
  • Managed to throw my favourite Disney mug in the bath, resulting in the mug smashing and creating a chip in the tub- white nail varnish was my only hope. Got angry. Tried to tidy the mess in an angry mood- got porcelain stuck in my finger. Cried. Phoned Hannah. Went for coffee.
  • As someone with majorly outdated music taste, I have recently been loving the Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack. I now know the words to Escape (the Pina Colada Song) backwards- seriously, why wasn’t I born in the 70’s or 80’s?
  • Tried my first Burrito at the Food Fair at University!
  • Spent 4 hours in the Library, later discovering the books are in no way useful.
  • Booked a holiday for next summer!
  • Had 3 coffee dates in one week… oops.
  • Went to the cinema to see Bad Neighbors 2- was in hysterics the entire time.
  • Took my dog for a walk, broke up two fights between my dog and some devil cats, and wrestled my dog away from a fight with a husky.
  • Watched the trailer for ‘Me Before You’ on repeat.

Bring on next week!
