Happy Friday! I feel like this week flew by thanks to the Monday holiday. I am finally getting a haircut and smoothing treatment this afternoon and I can’t wait to feel like I have healthy hair again. I’m trying a new salon (thanks to all your recs on Instagram stories last week!) and will be sure to report back!
This week’s rose was a happy hour date with my friend Jen from The Fashion Magpie. She is such a kindred spirit and a total role model for me — she’s an insanely talented writer (seriously, she is in a league of her own!) and has amazing style, an adorable family, and the warmest heart. Do check out her blog if you have a moment this weekend — you will not be disappointed! We went to the Ribbon on the Upper West Side and it was the perfect cozy spot for a glass of champs or two.
This week’s thorn is that our cockapoo Rory has been dealing with food allergies and we’re still struggling to get to the bottom of what’s causing them. We switched his dog food from chicken/rice to salmon/potato (as dog food flavors and occasionally the actual foods if we happen to be eating one or the other) a few weeks ago and I’m not convinced it’s relieved his symptoms (general itchiness and frequent ear infections). We’re trying a food elimination diet recommended by our vet and so it’s time to move on to the next protein /grain sources on the list… but I really just want him to feel better already! It really doesn’t affect his playful disposition at all but I know he’d be so much more comfortable if we could solve this once and for all. If you’ve been through something similar with your pup, I’d love to hear from you!
