Give Your Dog A Treat This Halloween With Stewart Pet Freeze Dried Liver Treats #DogTreats #Halloween #Review #StewartPet


Stewart Pet brand pet food products have a proud 40 year tradition of providing USA produced, nutritionally superior food and treats. Stewart is a company committed to providing wholesome, all natural, human grade ingredients manufactured in ways that maintain the natural uniqueness and integrity of what nature provides.


When I got the chance to try out the Stewart Pet Pro-Treat Freeze Dried Liver Treats of course I couldn’t resist.  My dog, Venus, has an aversion to most dog treats (I don’t know why…she’s weird) so I was interested to see how these went over with her.  Venus was going bananas for these after just one bite.  As soon as she sees this container now she knows what it is and she starts doing her little happy prance until she gets one…and she’s a 90 lb dog so it’s a hilarious sight to see her dance for her Stewart Pet liver treats.

The Stewart Pet Pro-Treat Freeze Dried Liver Treats are made in the USA without additives or preservatives in a USDA inspection facility. These treats maintain the aroma, full-flavor and nutritional value of 100% raw liver.  Fresh, conveniently freeze dried and diced into reward size treats, Pro-Treat is an excellent reward and training tool. All natural Pro-Treat has been the preferred choice of trainers for over 40 years due to its convenience and palatability.  Stewart Pet treats contain only one ingredient and are perfect for dogs with allergies or those who are on limited ingredient diets.

Knowing what goes into my body AND my furbaby’s body is very important to me, and Stewart Pet has made it easy for me to trust that what I’m feeding my dog is good for her.

Find Adorable Costumes Available From Great Pretenders #Review

img_logo (1).png

Great Pretenders has TONS of costumes that will be sure to delight this Halloween.  Pick a costume that’s all put together or mix and match some of your child’s favorite items to create a new look all their own.


My daughter had a really hard time deciding on what she wanted, but she finally decided to mix and match some of her favorite items available from Great Pretenders to create a fairy costume that she is SO pleased with.  After deciding she wanted to be a fairy, my daughter created her own costume pairing together the Sequins Fairy Dress, Whimsy Wonder Wings, and Pink Ribbon Tiara.


The Sequins Fairy Dress is guaranteed to grab your attention.  Featuring a fully sequined (and elastic) top, the empire waist extends to a soft tricot skirt and is also fully lined (because fairies deserve nothing less!).  The empire waist allows for size flexibility, and the soft tricot skirt is comfortable and graceful. This dress is fully machine washable so your daughter can enjoy wearing it again and again without worrying about getting it a little dirty.  Pair it with the Whimsy Wonder Wings (which are a MUST-HAVE for any fairy outfit) and the Pink Ribbon Tiara and you’ve got one of the cutest custom Halloween costumes you could possibly find anywhere.  My princess looks beautiful in her costume and she can’t wait to go trick-or-treating knowing there will be nobody else out there with a costume just like hers.

#MagicTown Pettiskirt #Review



Magic Town is at it again with another adorable item!  This Magic Town Pettiskirt is available in a few different designs, but this one was my little girl’s favorite.  It is made of polyester and nylon and is just absolutely adorable!  This skirt is availabe in one size (6-12) but if your little one is slightly smaller than that a few safety pins will work.  That’s what I did so that my daughter could get more use out of it and wear it longer.


You can see that my daughter is absolutely in love with this little pettiskirt.  She couldn’t wait to put it on as soon as she saw what I pulled out of the package.  The waistband is covered for maximum comfort and super stretchy to fit a wide range of sizes.  This is a great item for playing dressup, or using as part of a costume.  My daughter has asked me if we can buy a few things to go along with this to be a princess rock star for Halloween this year.  You daughter can wear this pettiskirt all year round.  During the colder months just slip on a pair of leggings underneath and you’ve got a whole new and unique look that will make your daughter feel confident expressing herself.

Magic Town never disappoints, I can’t wait to add to my daughter’s Magic Town collection.

Sleeping Beauty Costume Review


I know many of my readers already know the obsession my little girl has with dress-up and anything frilly.  One of her favorite things lately is anything and everything princess, but particularly Princess Aurora, or Princess Rerora as my 3 year old calls her.  She reminds me very much of myself, a little girl in love with the fairytale life of a princess.  But then again, what little girl doesn’t love princesses right?

Costume1  Costume2

Costume Discounters has an incredibly large selection of costumes, not just for girls.  There is something for everyone whether you’re 1 or 100.  They also sell this adorable Sleeping Beauty costume that I got for my little one.  I do have to admit, it was a super hard decision to make.  Roughly ninety percent of what I saw on the website, I knew would be a hit with my daughter.  I’m really glad I decided the Sleeping Beauty costume would be the best choice.  She loves the princess dress, and I love the quality of the costume.  Most costumes I can find locally are made extremely cheaply, but this one is made to withstand some wear.  (Make sure you Like CD on Facebook for all the latest and greatest!)

Costume4  Costume3

I’m sure you can tell by these pictures, she is one little happy girl.  The costume did fit slightly larger than I expected, but I’m honestly really pleased that is the case.  She is sooooo in love with her costume and I can’t seem to keep it off of her.  Since it is a little big she will be able to wear it longer, and I’ll get to see the gorgeous smile 🙂 .
