The Best Dog Bed

Benji weighs a little under 7 pounds and is in a small taupe

Original Calming Shag Vegan Fur Donut Cuddler Cat & Dog Bed

During our recent staycation at the new Four Seasons, Embarcadero Benji finally got the restful sleep he deserves after he was introduced to the Luxury Shag Donut Self-Heating pet bed the hotel provided.

Now, Benji has never really been a big fan of a dog bed. He has consistently slept with me in my bed for the past eight years, so when he REALLY took a liking to this bed I was very surprised. He loved this bed so much, he opted to sleep in the bed alone on the floor verses with me in the luxurious Four Seasons bed!

The next morning I flipped over the bed, found the label, and ordered it!

The round design creates a protective atmosphere, while the bolstered edge gives additional orthopedic support and serves as a paw-sitively purr-fect headrest. Unique insulation layer radiates warmth from your pet’s own body heat.

It’s machine washable, dryer-safe and comes in a soft faux-shag material that will keep your pal warm, cozy and comforted.

How the product was invented

The bed’s inventor, Shohreh Samani, was working in the textiles business when she noticed her Pomeranian sleeping on a pile of fluffy fabric samples she was considering for one of her decorative pillow designs.

“It was an ah-ha moment,” Samani said. “I interviewed vets and trainers, who told me for a pet to get a good night’s sleep, which is crucial to their health and wellbeing, that it was important they felt a sense of shelter and security.”

So Samani set out to design a bed that was reminiscent of a mother’s fur coat. “I wanted it to have deep crevices along with walls to support the head and neck,” she said. “It also had to be malleable enough to cater to the two primary sleeping styles of dogs and cats: curling and sprawling.”

Key Benefits

  • Soft faux shag fur keeps your furry friend warm and cozy on cold nights, while the water-resistant nylon bottom keeps your floors safe in case of an accident.
  • The extra filling provides relief from joint and muscle pain, while round-shape is paw-sitively purr-fect for pets who like to curl up and snuggle.
  • Raised edges are perfect for burrowing, offer additional orthopedic support, and serve as a comfortable headrest.
  • Orthopedic dog and cat bed is machine washable and dryer-safe for every pet parent’s convenience.

SHOES I know.

Is it a boot, a shoe, or a high top,

regardless of how you classify them, the Forsake Patch Hiking Boots are a must-have for any hiker.

.Looking for the best biking boots for beginners?

Buy these boots.

These boots went straight from the box to my suitcase to the trail and did not need to be broken in at ALL.

I wore them on my very FIRST hike (that just happened to be 21+ miles) and can not believe just how comfortable they are.

How to prevent hiking blisters?

Buy these boots.

Combine the Forsake Patch boots with the Darn Tough socks and you will be good-to-go.

Where they shine is in water resistance, weight, durability, comfort, and support <- do you really need anything else when you are shopping for a hiking boot?

Why You Need a Fringe Jacket This Fall

Why You Need A Fringe Jacket This Fall

The fringe trend has been all over the catwalks since last year. Nearly every designer added fringe to their collections, whether on jackets, dresses, or handbags. Fringe and cowboy boots were a big trend and are still popular this fall. We’ve seen the Wild West theme not only during Fashion Week and on Instagram but also in the streets <- insert me swaying around Jackson Hole all week in my vintage suede jacket.

The most obvious way to wear fringe is on a suede jacket, paired with jeans and cowboy boots ->

Watch Toy Story 3 if you need some inspiration for your western look.

But you can find fringe jackets in the most varied styles and materials; leather, denim, wool, embellished with studs or logos, you name it <- and I’ve linked them all below.

Second-hand shops are excellent places to get vintage and previously-owned designer jackets.

I snagged my jacket at Womenfolk Jackson Hole -> a collection of timeless, quality vintage and designer consignment clothing sourced and curated in Jackon Hole, Wyoming. If you come to Jackson Hole, this shop is a MUST!

Linking and answering all your Gucci Black GG Tights + CHLOÉ Betty rubber boots questions at the end of this post

The last time I wore a fringe denim jacket was for Outside Lands 2016, and THANK GOD it is still hanging in my closet! This jacket was impossible to find the summer of 2016 and by some act of God, my mom got her hands on an xs the week before my birthday and Outside Lands… I wonder if it still fits?!

And now look at us, here we are. It’s time to shop for outerwear, I’m was already fringe obsessed, but my trip to Wyoming made me want to scream it from the Tetons. I guess that’s mostly because it is a huge part of the street style here and everyone is making it look so cool and appealing.

If you invest in any of the current options — I’m particularly fond of this Stella McCartney splurge, Topshop’s ecru faux fringe dream, and the Danielle Bernstein x Macy’s, Faux-Suede Fringe Jacket, — you’ll be really making a statement. So much so that the rest of your outfit accouterments will barely require any attention at all. I see no better reason to hop on the bandwagon.

Gucci Black GG Tights – run slightly big | I own them in a medium and large and prefer the medium

CHLOÉ Betty Rubber Boots – fits true to size, take your normal size | Only available in full sizes, go up to the nearest whole size if you take a half size

The $38 Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag I Can’t Stop Wearing

Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag

Katwalksf wearing the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag in San Francisco

If you follow me over on Instagram you know that this bag is HIGHLY featured in my daily mirror selfie #OOTDs. I even call it my pandemic bag! Why? Because it’s all I’ve been wearing for the last six months! It coordinates well with my sweatsuit lifestyle and it holds all the essentials: phone, wallet, keys, mask, and hand sanitizer.

I have also pretty much-eliminated all bags in my wardrobe that are not hands free and can not be easily worn when out in public. I find that by wearing the belt bag out I am touching less when I am out and having to wipe down less when I get home! I usually wear it around my waist, but if you are feeling extra trendy you can easily wear it across your chest as a crossbody.

This bag as been a top seller for me and for Lululemon for a REASON! It is light, easy to wear, functional, and very well priced for Lululemon.

Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag Details

Pricey Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without

At the ripe old age of 34, I’ve found myself with a medicine cabinet full of pricey beauty products that I adore.

There’s only one real way to determine if pricey products are worth the cost ->


and ALL of these products have proven their worth to me.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

As a natural brunette with bleach blonde hair, the health of my hair is a top priority…after I’ve damaged it with ALL the bleach!

The Dyson Hair Dryer dries my hair incredibly fast (10 minutes total compared to 30+ minutes with other dryers), and it’s by far my favorite hair tool. It dries my hair extremely smooth without sacrificing volume and doesn’t create any flyaways or frizz whatsoever.

The Body Essentials

save $20 when you buy all three from Nécessaire


TBH it is annoying how much I like this collection of body care.

Do I still love my under $5 Trader Joe’s body wash?


But let me tell you,

I had no idea as to what I was missing out on until I started to use these products!

My skin has never felt softer, especially after a ton of travel and outdoor adventures.

BKR Glass Water Bottle

Water is the key to enhancing your beauty and to prolonging your youthful look. Consuming an adequate amount of water every day gives you fresh, soft, and glowing skin ->

It helps maintain the optimal body temperature, keeping the skin moist.

It hydrates and replenishes the skin tissues leading to an increase in the skin’s elasticity.

This helps delay the signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark circles, or fine lines

So I bought myself a fancy glass water bottle and haven’t look back since!

The best hair professionals in the world all swear by Olaplex because it works like nothing else to strengthen hair from the inside out. This allows impossible transformations to take place without damaging the hair irreparably.
As a bleached blonde, these beauty products are a MUST for me.

Donna Karan | 3-Pc. Cashmere Mist Deodorant Set

Donna Karen Cashmere Mist

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant Is the U.S.’s Best-Selling Prestige Body Product

Yep, you read that right.

This deodorant outsells all the other fancy-schmancy products you can get for your body. In fact, New Beauty reports a bottle of Donna Karan’s super-luxe deodorant is sold every two minutes in the United States.

And I FINALLY snagged it after seeing SEVERAL people share their love for it on social media.

Well, the reviews were right. This product is a SERIOUS game changer…even if it is $29.


When it comes to your skin, you can never be too young to start taking care of it (and investing in it).

Rather than fighting your way back to clearer and younger-looking skin, taking a preventative approach by starting early will not only delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it will also put your skin in the best possible position to defend itself against pollution, the sun and other environmental aggressors that can age your skin prematurely.

As our skin changes with age, so should our skincare routine -> and it’s time to invest in SkinCeuticals.

Why do you need to invest in medical-grade skincare?

Investing in medical-grade at-home skincare WILL significantly improve existing skin issues while slowing the skin aging process and protecting against future damage. This means you will be less likely to need aggressive (and pricier) treatments to deal with skin issues in the future.

If you are going to start with any pricey beauty products make it the LHA Cleanser Gel. This is my go-to pricey cleanser for a REASON and it is an easy introduction to the (very expensive) brand.

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash, Pricey Beauty Products, Aesop Hand Sanitizer,

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash

At $10 per 1.7 fluid ounces—this hand sanitizer is expensive for the category but reasonable for the brand.

We are all living in 2020 COVID times so Aesop’s Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash seems like a necessary extravagance, no?

 The oils in the rinse-free hand wash (Mandarin orange, cedarwood, and lavender to name a few) subtly overpower any purell alcoholic scent, reminiscent of a doctor’s office.

This hand sanitizer leaves hands noticeably soft, smooth, and fresh feeling.

I’ve yet to hand it over to a friend and have them NOT remark on how marvelous it is!

Like the Donna Karen deodorant, this product sells out quickly…so snag it ASAP.
