Oscar Needs Your Help: Hartz Frisky Frolic Doy Toy

Somehow during our move the UK, Oscar's favourite toy was misplaced, lost, stolen, I dunno....disappeared into the black hole.  I felt horrible, but I figured that he would get over it and that I was being silly and overprotective for feeling guilty about losing his favourite toy as a puppy.

It wasn't until this morning that the guilt returned. DH was playing a video he filmed of Oscar when we were back in Miami and Oscar ran into the room and started to claw at the computer screen, because he heard the toy.  We use to call it Mr. Squeaky as Oscar squeaked it night and day.  It was amazing to see how Oscar reacted to the sound of his baby toy, and it totally broke my heart.

I have emailed a few friends, contacted US ebay sellers in hopes of finding this toy.  If anyone can help me get Oscar's childhood toy, I will be eternally grateful and will even send you a beauty box full of goodies for your troubles!

I purchased this toy at Walgreens in Miami, but I know that Hartz is sold all over the US.

THANK YOU GUYS!!! And I promise to video Oscar frolicking around with his toy if he ever gets his claws on one again xx

March Wishlist

I realised I haven't done one of these posts in so long.  Ok, Ok, I haven't done a proper post at all in so long lol but I am going to attempt to do more regular posts as soon as this month is over - Pinky Swear :p x

So March is a funny month for me as at the end of this month, the wonderful government is going to take over £1000 from me and in return I get to stay in this lovely country indefinitely :)  So all my hard earned money is going to that and not fun stuff for me to show you all.  Once that is paid off, I am putting a deposit onto the cruise that I have been dying to go on for next year, so I need to be realistic about my money situation and not splurge. Having said that - A Girl Can Dream! And trust me...this girl dreams BIG - REAL BIG :)

I'll start with my first lemming of the month.


£17, found here on Asos

I still remember how amazing my lashes were when I last went to the JinnyLash studio. Now I'm hoping I can recreate that with these strip lashes :)

£6, found here on Selfridges

I've been looking for another eyebrow pen for a bit more a dramatic look. I love my Suqqu one but it is for natural un-noticable eyebrows imo.

£2.90, Found on Ebay 
Please check seller's feedback prior to bidding :)

So that is my tiny new wishlist. Please share with me your current lemmings x

EU bans animal testing 2013!

What's up gang! Oh my goodness, time really flies. I haven't been able to post in such a long time. Work has been my only focus these days, but I knew I had to return to the blogging world to fill you all in on the amazing new legislation effective from March 11th!

Animal testing has been banned in the EU for a while now; however, companies were finding loop holes because the former law only banned finished products on animals.  It did not cover ingredients, so companies were testing ingredients on products abroad and importing them in.  However, with the new law they will not be able to do that!  I am so happy I am almost speechless.  This has been such a battle for many, including the company that I work for, and to have this actually passed is such a joyous occasion for not only myself but the millions of animals that will no longer have to suffer for our vanity.

You can read more HERE

Beauty products brings joy to so many women out there, but there is no need to bring suffering to animals for that, especially when so many companies out there produce fabulous products without testing it on helpless animals.

So I hope you are all happy to hear about this news, I know I'm thrilled!
