Shop my closet

Thankfifi- Tictail - shop my wardrobe-6

One thing’s for sure – I have too many clothes (and dogs) – both weaknesses of mine.  It’s a good problem and obviously came in handy for starting the blog… but, when your clothing rail breaks (not even when you’re touching it, just under the weight, literally all on its own…) and your shoe line-up has developed a second row, you know it’s time…

So say hello to my shop!  I’ll be adding to it whenever I get the time so please do check it out here if you’re in the market for some bargains or just fancy a nosey – I’ve popped a few images of some of the goodies below.  Spoiler alert : none of the dogs are for sale, I’m hanging onto them.x

Mini-breaking

Thankfifi- Weekend mini break style in Boden wax jacket red leather weekend bag-3

It’s been rather lovely to enjoy a couple of mini-breaks this year already (here and here, wow Scotland!) and I will openly confess that I pretty much wore the exact same outfit both times… if it ain’t broke right?

One night requires nothing more than what you see, the trusty UGG Adirondacks, a great sweatshirt, scarf (currently coveting this one), this gorgeous new Feather & Stone piece and maybe a top for dinner (I’ve still got this Asos sale steal on constant rotation).  C’est tout.

With 2 weeks until baby Tux can hit the ground running I’m plotting where to go next – dog friendly, close to Glasgow suggestions welcome!

Same/same but different

Thankfifi- Topshop blanket cape & a Finnish Lapphund puppy-4

This weeks daily dressing has pretty much been a case of whatever was close to hand, starting with the stripes… because that’s always a good idea.  When there’s big dog needing walks and little dog needing lots of attention and then that work thang in the mix – well, life feels pretty busy.  So variations on this have been on rotation and the blanket cape seems to be getting a lot of airtime (perhaps my love for capes was reignited by watching the Burberry show?  Or perhaps my love for capes never really waned).

And now?  Weekend and puppy love to the max.  Have a good one!x

Introducing Tux & the best kind of exercise

Thankfifi- Pedigree Tracks app-2

Say hello to Tux!  On Saturday we brought home MrK’s little brother (or his great nephew in fact) and the past few days have been one giant puddle of melted hearts.  He’s soft and fluffy and he smells like puppy – you know those weird people that cuddle their dogs real close and just inhale dog… yep, that’s me.  If you’re a dog person then you know exactly what I mean (heck, you do it too) and if you’re not a dog person then you’re thinking I’m a crazy dog lady right about now… ok, I’ll give you that one.

So when Pedigree sent over this hamper it seemed only logical to get one of those cute ‘puppies in baskets’ shots.  Boy was that fun.  Tux wanted to eat the hamper, jump out the hamper, hide in the hamper and bark at the hamper.

You see, the folks over at Pedigree have been doing some research and found that almost half of UK dogs are overweight and, you guys, that makes me so sad.  It’s like seeing overweight children, they don’t know any better and it’s our job to take care of them.  We are a nation of dog lovers so don’t make excuses about the weather or being busy, these little guys love us with all their hearts and it’s our duty to keep them healthy and happy.  What’s even better are all the healthy body and mind benefits that dog walking brings us too – even on a busy day MrK still covers 5 miles and that’s one heck of a free workout for me too.  Win win.

So Pedigree have developed a handy app to help keep us right – Pedigree Tracks.  You enter all the data for your dog and start tracking what you get up to with him, hitting start and stop for everything from indoor play time (there’s a lot of that going on right now – Tux has big love for MrK) to off lead walks.  Throughout the day you can check how you’re doing until you reach the 100% target of daily recommended exercise.  Or, in our case, 150% of the daily recommended exercise… ‘ensure your dog is getting enough rest’ – yep, he’s good – this might be why MrK is such a good, lazy boy in the house!

Honestly I never really doubted that MrK was getting enough exercise, we LOVE to walk.  But let’s all download the app (it’s free!), even just to double check and give ourselves a pat of the back.

And now I’m off for more puppy cuddles… can you blame me?

Checking out

Thankfifi - LFW Topshop checks & Hallhuber fringing-3-2

Well I have to confess that it feels a little funny seeing all the shots from London Fashion Week rolling in and not being a part of it this season (except vicariously through Look magazine, thanks guys!)… but you know I have my reasons and I’ll have a special introduction to make soon enough.

But if I were there, then I figure I’d be wearing this; no brainer with her fuzzy, neon checks.  Except, right now, I’ve got other fuzzies to be dealing with.x
