Screw Romance this Valentine's Day.

That's right, I said Screw Romance.  So there. Here is a quote that sums up my feelings this year: “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”  ― Antoine de Saint-Exupery, the Little Prince Valentine's Day has some pretty dark roots.  According to NPR, it started with the Romans involving sacrificing animals, beating women to make them more fertile and some other offensive acts (click the link to read more if you are interested).  With a few executions and a few centuries, it has morphed into the Hallmark tradition it is today.Here's the thing.  You don't need romance in your life...

Friends for the holidays!

We all have a BFF.  Someone that just gets us, who has seen us at our worst and at our best. Yoshi-Bella has a BFF, and great news!  Sleepovers every day for the next 10 days!! Yoshi-Bella (my dog) and her BFF Harlee (a Basset Hound) hang out with each other when the rest of the family goes on vacation.

AARCS Jail and Bail Event

My first real show!  Tomorrow Yoshi-Bella is thrilled to have a booth to support Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society at their Jail and Bail event, and we are looking forward to joining in the fun and meet the celebrities.  This is an even more personal event, since we got Yoshi-Bella (the dog, not the company) from this organization!  It all started here with a rambunctious puppy needing a home.  We will be at the event ( for details) from 10am-6pm with AMAZING, SHOW ONLY deals.  Necklaces for $10!  If you are wondering what Yoshi-Bella is about then come and see us and support a good cause.  10% of sales (after expenses) from this event will go directly back to AARCS....

Summer Heat

It was a hot summer here in Calgary, and Yoshi-Bella likes to relax in the shade.  It is hard to believe that school starts tomorrow. Highlights of our summer included a family camping trip, and without too many bugs Yoshi-Bella was happy!  She got stung by a wasp last year and now any buzzing insect sends her to her kennel inside the trailer.  What do you do to relax?  I did not want to bring a ton of jewelry camping so I brought my cou-cou ca-choo fashionista necklace and a dainty band with about 12 different medallions.  I felt like I had switched up my look without lugging (and potentially losing!) a bunch of my jewelry.  Now that fall is...
