Bri's Weekly Top Three 9.1.17

Posted by Briana Graber on

Alright, it's finally time for my last top three article, and we've got a few interesting selections to look at today.  

For one, I worked with the brand Herbsmith for the first time this week.  Herbsmith is a brand that crosses traditional theories with modern research.  Their supplements are grounded in Chinese herbal remedies, their herbs picked from the best of their natural environments, and then tested right here in the USA before it's marketed to ensure their products work at their absolute peak.  One in particular I worked with was the Calm Shen, to help tame nervousness, anxiety, and destructive behaviors.  The fact that they post the breakdown of what each ingredient does on their website is both fascinating and helpful.  For instance "Angelica Tang Kuei (dang gui)...Tonifies the blood to nourish the heart without causing stress."

Then, with Halloween right around the corner in October already I enjoyed working with Up Country's Boo! Dog collar.  Up Country has a reputation for quality and the ghosts and pumpkins that dot this collar add just the right adorable touch to the upcoming spooky season.

And speaking of quality, I have yet to hear someone say something bad about fiesta ware quality, regardless of whether it fits their aesthetics.  For me?  I like the bold broad shapes and bright colors.  This pet bowl has a 7.25" diameter and holds 39.25 oz, or just shy of 5 cups for those who might have trouble visualizing amounts in ounces, like myself.  Fiesta ware holds up to the test of time and can make a statement in your kitchen or dining room.

Have a great week and stay safe.

The Question of Grains

One of the biggest movements in pet food the last few years has been a shift towards grain free products.  Treats, food, and even some chewable medicines now advertise themselves as grain free.  And all of it comes from a great place-wanting the best and healthiest lives for our pets.  Despite it's rising popularity, though, it's [...]

Autumn is just around the corner, and it's my favorite season of the year.  This ruffle dress made me so happy with the fall color scheme, and the orange flower just pops from the top of the skirt where it's nestled in the crinoline.  The perfect pick for a day out in the apple orchard or [...]

Puppy Talk

There's a certain voice we all have a tendency to use when a pet is around-dog or cat.  It's that same higher-pitched and coddling voice we use when talking to babies or really almost anything we consider cute.  The reaction is near automatic, as we can observe in many movies, where as soon as a [...]

Who doesn't love cheese?  Granted, I live in Wisconsin, where even my lactose intolerance is barely an excuse to not enjoy or eat cheese, but still.  Cheese is delicious, and dogs think so too.  Actually my two favorite dogs run to the kitchen as soon as they hear a cheese wrapper opening and catch a [...]

It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned Eye Envy, but their tear stain removal application powder (and really their whole tear stain removal set) is still an admirable product. It’s perfect for dogs with white or light fur and suffer from tear stains. It’s externally applied, so you don’t need to worry about starting your [...]

All cats, all the time.  Well, at least this week.  There was quite a few cat products and more than a handful caught my eye, though I tried to pare it down to a more manageable list for this week.First, even though it doesn't seem the most exciting, is a litter box.  Fact is, if [...]

Diverse Dogs and Familiar Felines

Even with cat breeds as distinctive as the sphynx, there's no solid argument that can be made that dog breeds are more diverse.  From coats to size to skeletal structure, there is a far wider range of traits displayed among dogs.  And it is a curious thing to wonder at.  After all, both domesticated cats [...]

The Third Largest Country of Dog Owners

Behind the US, which country would you peg next for owning the most dogs?  It might surprise you to find out that 2nd place goes to Brazil.  It might surprise you even more, however, to find out who isn't that far behind with 3rd place.  China.  I mean, yes they have the worlds largest population, more than [...]
