Combining Home Decor with Pet Furnishings // PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.
When you have as many pets as I do, it's hard to keep your house looking all prim and proper with home decor.  But if you can find a way to get pet furnishings to look like home decor, that's a MAJOR win!




 THIS is the way that I decorate in style and keep my babies hydrated! It's the PetSafe Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain! It's a stylish ceramic fountain that freshly filters and recirculates 70 ounces of free-flowing water for your pets.   The water is actually kept cleaner and fresher than it would be in a normal bowl.  The ceramix is more hygienic and it's easy to clean.  The upper and lower dishes provid 2 drink areas for pets and it's perfect for a multiple pet household where some furkids don't know how to take turns.  My dogs love it because the free-falling streams add oxygen and it makes the water fresher so they end up drinking more!




I love how this fountain is set up. It's so pretty!  But I love most of all that it needs a major need in  my babies! Did you know that your pet needs approximately one ounce of water per pound of body weight each day? Just like humans, if a pet is dehydrated it can lead to major health problems.  Water is so essential to a pet's overall health and well-being that you should always make sure it's fresh.  If you are like me and have a busy lifestyle, it's easier to have a product that does it for you which is why I'm so glad I have this fountain!

Is the Drinkwell Pagoda Fountain going on YOUR Christmas List this year?

The Leash That Does Everything

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.

With 4 dogs, it's no surprise that walking them can be a hastle so I need all the help I can get.  The flexi VARIO retractable leash is a miracle pet product!   It does so many things.  Allow me to explain...



It's SO lightweight which is a big deal for me because my hands are usually full of dog leashes, a cell phone, and keys half the time.  I love the sleek look and style and the large space for my hand to hold it. 
But it gets even better... it has accessories that attach conveniently to it like an LED lighting system and a MultiBox for treats or wastebags.  I decided to choose the blue color and a smaller size since I obviously have tiny dogs. 

The lighting system is awesome! It attaches with velcro and when you don't want to have it on the leash, you can put the plain plastic cap over the velcro. The light can either flash red so people see you are walking along the road or you can click the white part and it stays on like a flashlight. Perfect for nighttime walks and potty clean ups.  The MultiBox slides on underneath the handle in one snap.  It's great for holding the baggies and it's easy to grab one out of it!
I really loved walking Grace and taking advantage of the easy to move button to lock the leash. 

Look at how sleek and modern it looks!


Would you want a leash that does everything?

My Love of Frozen Meals on Atkins 40


So I have to say I never used to be a fan of frozen meals especially when dieting but Atkins has some amazing frozen meals!! There are more than 20 different meal options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Not only are they more convenient but they are delicious!

The Mexican-Style Chicken and Vegetables has such great flavor and it was very filling.
When I felt like I needed to have pizza since I was sooo tempted, I just enjoyed some Stone Fired Cheese Pizza.

Not only was it so quick to pop these in the microwave and make them, but they were really satisfying!

The Beef Merlot was also delicious and honestly, you can't even tell any of this is diet food. It tastes absolutely phenomenal so mentally it helped me get out of that rut where all I do is dwell on the fact that I have to eat certain healthier foods. Pizza is pizza to me!

When on Atkins 40 I have to make sure to drink lots of water but since I've been doing it for a while now it's not hard to get the recommended servings! Next week I'll talk more about Atkins on the go!

For more information check out: http://atkins.com.

Also, you'll find the Atkins Facebook Page has a lot of fun updates here: http://www.facebook.com/AtkinsDiet and so does their Twitter here: https://twitter.com/atkinsinsider
