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 Many Meanings of Meow

All of us are familiar with a cat's meow.  It's on kids toys that distinguish the types of animal sounds, we've heard it from our own cats, cats at a friend's house, or even on internet cat videos.  But fun fact: cat's only really meow at humans, not at each other.  Meows are the cat's [...]

Finding the Right Pet: Parrot Edition

Here's a very not-so-well-kept secret: I'm a bird person.  I adore dogs and like cats and bunnies just fine, but in truth I'm a bird person.  From their gorgeous coloration to their intelligence to their very natures, I love birds.  Particularly smaller breeds like budgies and lovebirds, but any time there's any kind of parrot [...]

Weekly Top Three 5.19.17

A clever idea I ran across this week is a water bottle that doubles as a pet dish.  The Gulpy Jr Water Dispenser has a lid that lines up with the bottles side and has a convenient belt clip for when you're not using it, but when Spot needs a drink the lid flips down into [...]

Finding the Right Pet: Dog Edition

Most of us classify ourselves as 'cat' people or 'dog' people, and there's a good reason for that.  Cats and dogs have distinct personalities that are very lovable.  They're affectionate, loving, and provide us with a source of companionship that we just can't imitate in human interaction.  But they are a big responsibility.  Even if [...]
