My puppy, Boba, just had his very first birthday party and me, being the extra dog mom that I am, had to whip up some homemade dog treats to serve at his puppy party! The treats were such a hit with all the pups, I had to share them with you guys to make at home for your own fur babies! Each recipe is super simple to make and only takes a few ingredients you may already have at home! Let me know what your pets think of these if you try them out at home! ENJOY!
Bacon Doggie Donuts
These were a huge hit with all the pups, and even the humans, too! I loved the way these turned out – they look like they took a good amount of time and effort, but in reality it was like a 20 minute snack.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- greek yogurt (for the topping)
- bacon bits (for the topping)
- Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
- spray donut baking pan with non-stick cooking spray
- mix all ingredients (besides the ones for the topping) into a medium mixing bowl
- press dough into the donut pan firmly
- bake for 14 minutes
- to make the topping, just spread greek yogurt on the donuts and sprinkle bacon bits
- freeze to let the toppings set
Chewy Cheddar Puppy Bites
These cheesy bread bites were another hit for all the dogs, I wish I had made more than just one batch because they gobbled these up so quickly! These only took about 15 minutes to put together, as well!
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup evaporated lowfat milk
- 1 large egg
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- mix all ingredients together until well combined
- spoon dough into silicone baking molds
- bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown
- remove from the oven and let cool before serving
Strawberry Banana Frosty Paws
These were my favorite! I thought they turned out the absolute cutest! Some dogs were obsessed with these and others didn’t care for them, however… All the humans at the party loved them! They taste like little smoothie bites, the perfect little summer treat for you and your pup! These were also the easiest to make!
- 1 banana
- 2 cups strawberries
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 1/2 cup greek lowfat yogurt
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- combine all ingredients into mixer
- blend until smooth
- pour into silicone baking molds
- freeze (I froze mine overnight!)
I am so excited to tell you guys that I received the awesome opportunity to travel to Punta Mita, Mexico for an exciting stay with Pur Cosmetics and Boxycharm! This week we will be celebrating upcoming launches and there are so many surprises in store! I’m going to take you along the trip with me here, and also on my Instagram @hailiebarber! Yesterday was our first day in paradise so I wanted to show you the room and all the goodies left for us by sponsors for the trip!
The room was insane – so many amazing goodies left for us! My face on the shower walls KILLED me, oh my gosh I was cracking up! There was also some new launches in the bathroom, including a new palette and two new brush sets! I cannot wait to play around and try everything out!
The above photo is my outfit for our first day and welcome dinner! The dress and bag are from Princess Polly and the shoes are Lola Shoetique!
After dinner we received some room drops of new goodies, including the new Pür x Boxycharm palette! We also have the March Boxycharm box, new Pür lip toppers, a blush palette, and an Impressions Vanity mirror! Thank you so much to both Pür and Boxycharm for the warm welcome – I am so excited to see what else is in store for us!
Since I get so much makeup in the mail weekly, it’s almost impossible to thoroughly review and talk about every single piece! I decided I wanted to do these weekly unboxing posts to show you guys all the new products coming out in the makeup world and if you want me to go back and do something more in depth about a certain product shown here, I can most certainly do so!
If you’re unfamiliar with the term PR – it has few meanings, but the one I’m referring to here is a press package that companies send to influencers to try out and show off their new products coming out! If you want to read more about how I grew my career in the beauty community to be able to receive these packages, I have a whole blog post here!
Tarte Cosmetics Color Splash Shade Shifting Lipstick. The same smooth and creamy Color Splash formula as their previous launches, this time in Metallics! I’m usually not a fan of metallic lipsticks, but these are so gorgeous and will look amazing this summer!
Kat Von D x Divine collection. This collection is EVERYTHING. From the packaging design, to the shades of the palette… I’m in love. I definitely want to create a look with both the palette and lipstick, so stay tuned for a tutorial in the future!
Buxom Va Va Plump shiny liquid lipstick. I’m a huge fan of Buxom glosses, they are an amazing formula with the perfect amount of shine, so I’m really excited to try these out! The shade range is perfect and covers all the bases! They seem super high pigment with just one swatch, but I’ll update you on application once I give them a try!
Touch in Sol Metallist palette. I couldn’t find this online yet, but it is an interesting palette! It feels super creamy, almost wet, when swatched. I wasn’t super impressed with the pigmentation when I swatched it, but it could perform totally different on the eyes and with a brush, so I’ll just have to test it out!
NARS Wanted collection. NARS launched two brand new Blush palettes and two sets of mini liquid lipsticks. I love both the lipsticks and blushes so much, so I cannot wait to try these out! The colors in this collection are gorgeous! Not available online yet, but I’ll update as soon as it’s out!
Becca x Sananas Parisian Lights highlighter. I’m not sure who Sanana is that Becca collaborated with, but this highlighter is beautiful and I love the press on it! It’s more a rose gold/champagne shade, which I love!
Smashbox SuperFan Mascara and Always On Liquid Liner. I’m really excited about the liquid liner!! I have lash extensions right now, but once I get them removed I’ll be trying this out with the mascara!
Butter London Stroke of WOW mascara!
New Eyeris Beauty 3d Faux Silk false lashes. I love Eyeris Beauty lashes so much, I cannot wait to wear these once I’m done with my lash extensions!
Butter London Glazen Blush. Apparently, brands saw Farsali do the whole ‘jelly’ makeup thing and decided to hop on that, Honestly, I don’t like the texture of these and find them to be messy and inconvenient. It’s a fun, new concept, though!
NARS new highlighting powders. These are phenomenal! They swatched super subtle, but I think they’re just pressed really hard. Applied with a blush these give the most gorgeous glow! These aren’t on sale yet, but I’ll update!
Sigma had such success with their Cult fav Wicked Gel Liner, they expanded the Wicked line into both pencil and liquid liner! I loved their gel liner, so I can’t wait to see how these perform! I also have a discount code: ‘HAILIE’ to save you 10%!
So that about wraps up this weeks mail! I hope you guys enjoyed seeing all the new in the makeup world, let me know if you want me to continue these unboxing posts!
Today I’m partnering up with EOS to talk about their newest lip balm! If your lips have been suffering from the dry, cold winter – fear no more. EOS has recently launched their new Crystal Lip Balm, a wax-free, weightless lip balm that soothes and hydrates lips, making them soft and healthy. I have partnered up with EOS in the past to talk about this product and have been using the Crystal for a few months now. I love how it feels on my lips so much! It glides on the lips like an oil and keeps my lips moisture throughout the day. It also doubles as a lip primer – great before apply lipstick!
EOS Crystal is formulated with avocado, shea, coconut, and other natural oils. It’s vegan, hypoallergenic, and paraben & petrolatum-free. I love how natural this lip balm is!
Crystal is available in both Vanilla Orchid and Hibiscus Peach. The one I have that is pictured is Vanilla Orchid – I’m a sucker for anything and everything vanilla! It’s available for $5.95 and you can find a store that carries Crystal here!
I also love the packaging of the Crystal! All of EOS lip balm’s are super chic looking and easy to pop in your bag, but the Crystal in particular is adorable! It has a slight shimmer to it when held in the light, and the actual product looks so cool – almost transparent! If you’ve been wanting to try out a new lip balm, I definitely recommend picking this one up and giving it a go!
