we heart weekly – 8.27.11

gold tip manicures and maple bacon doughnuts, ain’t life grand?

Real simple Photo of the Week this go round. The loves of my life – my four dogs. From left: Ted; Boston Terrier, Charlie; German Pointer, Mabel; Boston Terrier (she’s deaf too, the lil’ sausage) and Lou Lou: Pit Bull. What a lovely bunch, aren’t they?

Here’s some other lovable things from this week…

• Speaking of animals, we’re sad to say we’re not participating in this year’s Race for the Rescues. Our schedule just wouldn’t allow it. But we still can’t think of a better thing to do with any spare cash then sending it to this cause (ten animal organizations and countless animals will reap the benefits). And the good news? We’ve got something really exciting in the works for early next year with the same folks. Do-gooders and beauty-lovers, stay tuned.

• I’m borderline insane obsessed with this manicure from Lyndar the Merciless (which I learned about from the fabulous my lips but better). A grey nude combined with a cascading gold tip? Love. I will not rest until I recreate this.

• Am I weird or does Tomato Lemonade sound kind of delicious? Delish reports that the maker recommends adding a shot or two of rye whiskey to make the tomatoey drink “reminiscent of a wonderfully tipsy deli sandwich.” You don’t have to twist my arm!

• It’s just about LA County Fair time (Sept. 3 – Oct.2) and you KNOW I’m excited. There’s already some buzz about this year’s must-have treats. For me, it’s all about the Maple Bacon Doughnut. Mmm…Maple Bacon Doughnut.

Finally, for all of our friends on the East Coast – stay safe! What’s the haps this weekend, chiquitas?

      Hey Jeni –
      Thanks for your comment! Yeah, Mabel’s unique for sure. Did you know that dogs with entirely white heads have a strong chance of being deaf? Something about the lack of pigment equates to deafness. Odd, huh?

    @stef – Sorry to hear you are not participating at the Race for the Rescues this year. However, time is one thing we can not create more of and when you are over scheduled there is nothing that can be done. Ironically, I just got back from a Great Dane Rescue fund raiser this afternoon. Duke (my Great Dane) and I are just exhausted from meeting many new friends (animal and human).
