Christmas Gift for Dogs ~ Clothing, toys and accessories feat. Pet Magasin




Christmas gift for your furry baby? Don't worry I got you cover :)  
For some of you who don't know, we have a dog for a quite some while. 
A little Story of our Jingles :) Yes his name is Jingles and he was born on Christmas day :)  We got him Summer 2016. We actually adopt him. The family that he was with could not keep him, so one of my good friend told us about him. To be honest we did want a dog for while. we tried to adopt Shitz Shu before Jingles, but that dog was not a good match for us. So when my friend told us about Jingles I was a little septic. Do we really need a dog?  After talking we decided to give it a try and since I picked up Jingles he stayed with us. He is the most lovable dog! he will lick you to death, he will always stand on his back legs to greet you! He is amazing! When I was sick he would sleep with me all day. talk about the love! 
He is a part of our small family. We do consider him as a son. 
And as a part of our family he will be getting Xmas presents!

Here is few ides on what I will be getting him and what can you get to you puppy. Hahaha Jingles will turn 4 yrs on 25th but I still call him my baby puppy :)



First are sweaters :) I love putting clothing on him. He is tiny and winters in NYC are pretty cold. The best deals on sweaters I found at CVS. They have this Christmas stand with Christmas clothing  and toys for dogs. I bought him one sweater last year and I loved it. It fitted perfectly and it was really adorable. This year I knew I need to get more! Plus they are really affordable! $6.99 a piece! I don't think you get cheaper then that. Even at Marshall's dog sweaters are like $10+.





The first day that I went I found only one sweater in medium size. Ughhh... After talking with CVS workers, they said they will be getting more soon. They gave me a date when the new delivery truck is in town and I made sure to go next day. And Yes I score two more sweaters and PJ, plus 25% off !






 I also decided to pick up a toy that was hanging on the side of the display. It was really cute and I bet Jingles will love it. I will be picking him up more toys form Dollar tree as well :)



Second and third gifts ideas are grooming tools and new leash.
I was so excited to get this set. It was send to me by Pet Magasin and BrandBacker.
I was send 3 brush set, nail clippers and a leash.



Lets talk about the brush set first. So it comes with three brushes: Double Sided Brush, Long tooth Undercoat Rake and De-matting Comb.


The brushes are amazing. They are very well made and look more expensive they they actually are.  The undercoat rake is a life save to any one who have a dog that sheds a lot.  My Jingles sheds a lot. Hi hair is everywhere. Ughh. When i received this set that was the first brush I tried on him and he loved it. And I noticed that after brushing him good with that brush, the shedding stop.  This brush is prefect for all size dogs and furs :)



 The second brush that I pulled and used was the double sided one. I had one from a Dollar Tree before but to be honest this one is so much better. Quality wise  of course :) Again Jingles love this brush. I used it along with the rake one. My daughter actually prefers this one and she loves brushing Jingles hair (Yorkies have a hair right not fur?)  and Jinx he will beg for more! The only brush I did not yet used it the de-matting comb. Hopefully I will soon :)



Now lets talk about something that I was excited, a new leash. When we got Jingles, the previous owners gave us his old leash. We continue use it, but its is old and when I was looking to purchase a new leash I wow they are pricey! Not easy to find good and affordable leash. But don't worry Pet Magasin got you covered! The leash that they send over is now on sale! $11 and amazing!
It is 13 ft retractable tape leash. It gives a dog a freedom  to walk around. It have a comfortable, non-slip rubberized handle. and then it have the button that lets me control the leash length.  This is what sold me on this. On my previous leash I had it too, but I guess it was broken coz I had to hold it. this one with one click, you decided how long you will let you puppy walk.
I like that it is lightweight and my daughter can take Jingles for a walk with no problems. She does love that click button too hahaha!






As for Jingles I dont know if he even care that he got a new leash, he is just happy to be outside hahah :) Also this leash comes with a poop bag holder. Here I am a little on the fence. I like it and I don't. The design is cute, but it take few minutes for me to get the bag out of it. and second it somehow slides off. I dunno why. It looks like it is secured but it slides off for now reason. I think I might put back my old poop bag holder on the new leash. Well see how it goes. Overall I am really pleased with it.



Now the nail clipper. It look awesome, but not for Jingles. I have no idea how to clip dog nails. I get it done at the grooming place. I am simply scared :( what if I cut him or something. Also I see this is fit for a medium to large dogs. My Jingles is small so I don't know It might not be for him. I might give it away as a gift to someone with a bigger dog.

Here are the links where you can find the mentioned products:
Nail Clippers - $7.87
Brush Set ~ $13.88
Leash ~ $10.99

The last gift you can give to your dog are treats! Oh my Jingles loves them. I buy my at Rite Aid (Bacon Strips) and Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree carries a lot of nice dog treats :)



Random Trip ~ Chinatown, Lincoln Center and Central Park ~ NYC lifestyle




Saturday was supposed to be a quick Dentist visit in Chinatown and then we were supposed to go home. But. We don't go out often these days. I work full time and weekends are my cleaning and relaxing day. I rarely go out. But since we were already int he city, so why not? After our dentist appt in Chinatown we jumped in F train on East BWAY station and took uptown to Rockefeller CTR and transfer to D. Then we took it two stops to Columbus Circle and then 1 train to 66th Street Lincoln Ctr. Hahaha! confusing right? I bet if you not form around here it might be. We went all the way to 66th street to visit my sister in law who works at Garment Garage, small supermarket with very yummy foods. Its right across the street form Juliard, cant missed it. If you around in the area def check it out. They have the best Hungarian Mushroom Soup! it smells and tastes almost like the one my mom and my grandma makes!oh men I missed that soup! with Christmas around corner is miss it even more. But long story make it short. After we ate and hang out with Snow, we went to take few pics at Lincoln Center :) Nice place but outside not much to do. After we were supposed to walk down to Columbus Circle and take train home , but with Central Park right in front of us we decided to take a short walk in the park. It was cold and gloomy. But we did had lots of fun.
Here is full load of pictures! enjoy !

Kevyn Aucoin The Neo-Trio Palette ~ Holiday 2017 ~ Swatches and Review

*pr sample*


Where should I start? Hahaha! Guys I love this palette! I wanted it ever since I saw the preview of it on IG. Yes I know I am always broke coz of IG.

Anyways let me state that this palette was send to me by Kevyn Aucoin and Octoly. I been part of Octoly Influencers since the it launched in US. So that will be a what two years already? Correct me if I'm wrong.


It made my day when Kevyn Aucoin accepted me to this campaign. I love love love his products. 
The Neo-Trio palette is everything you need to create a full face look. 
The three mini palettes are magnetized and can be pulled apart. Which is so cool! Plus they are mini and that means travel friendly! 


This cute little set includes:
* Neo-Setting Powder ~ as the name suggest is it supposed to be a setting powder/ But as I swatched it, for me it look more of a highlight. There is beautiful sheen to it. So I say you can use it as a all over the face powder and it will give you beautiful dewy finish. But than again, I have an oily skin so I don't want my face to glow and let it be seen from space. I use it as a highlight. Its very subtle and perfect for every day. So with that said this do not work for me as a all over face powder, I prefer it as a highlight.

* Neo-Limelight in Ibiza ~ I been drawn to it from the first look. I love purple hues especially when it comes to highlights. This looks stunning on the cheekbones! It features iridescent trio of ombre colors from pale gold, cool pink and beautiful lilac.  It have gorgeous sheen with very minimal  shimmer that gives beautiful glowy effect without being too much. This might be my favorite palette of all three :) I need to get a full sized palette of this shade :) 

* Neo-Bronzer in Capri ~ I do prefer Capri over Sienna :) Don't get me wrong I still really like Sienna, its just Capri is more on a cooler side and well more me :). I have a light complexion and I think it suits me more. Just as Neo-Limelight it features three ombre shades: pale gold, pinky-peachy in the middle and gorgeous broznze. The shades can be worn alone or can be mixed together for a sun kissed look. It has great silky smooth texture and blends really beautifully. The blush and the highlight are so pretty. With the brozner I have to go light handed tho. but it does watm my skin and all three shades looks simply stunning. 


Overall I am really happy with this palette. First off you get to try three Kevyn's products in price of one. Talk about a great deal. Second the formulation is amazing. Silky smooth, great pigmentation, blends and applies like a dream :) 
This can also make a great Christmas gift for a makeup lover :) 


BTW did you guys see the new Electropop Pro shadow palette? OMG the colors are life! I need it my collection :) And so far I been hearing all great reviews so yes!
