Shop for a ‘Paws': Barkarama’s Online Stella & Dot Charity Trunk Show

Charity_Trunk_Show.jpg 

At the beginning of 2014, I shared a personal goal of wanting to do at least two lots of fundraising this year to benefit my favourite kind of furry friend, as well as those, who need a dog to assist them though their daily lives. I already had one idea in mind at the time of posting, inspired by one of my business sidelines – working as an independent stylist for boutique accessories brand Stella & Dot – but I’ve been waiting for the right time to get it off the ground. 

April 1 saw the start of National Pet Month (ends May 5), an annual event promoting responsible pet ownership, helping pet charities across the UK to raise funds and recognising the love and companionship our pets provide. To celebrate, Basil and I are inviting you to shop our online Stella & Dot Charity Trunk Show on Wednesday 30 April, and in return I pledge to donate and equally share all of my earnings (25% of sales) between my chosen charities - Dogs Trust and Support Dogs.

A Dozen Reasons Why Basil is My Valentine

My-Furry-Valentine.jpg

Love it or hate it Valentine’s Day has arrived, and even if there’s no other significant other to share this romance-filled day, we’ve still got our dogs and they love us no matter what.

To quote my other half, “I’m a lucky girl” but not just for the reason he thinks - that I have him for my boyfriend - but because I have my utterly adorable Basil, who stole my heart the moment I clapped eyes on him. So in the absence of the dozen red roses I knew I wouldn’t get, here’s a dozen reasons why Basil Barkarama is my furry Valentine …

Give a Dog a Home: Battersea’s “Undateables”

Domino.jpg

I’m a huge fan of Channel 4’s Undateables programme so I'm LOVING this clever Valentine’s campaign from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, designed to highlight some of their loneliest dogs, who are in search of their perfect partner.

The home has identified its most undateable dogs, with the hope that their potential pup parents will see past their minor imperfections and give them a forever home to call their own. While the dog charity successfully re-homed thousands of dogs last year, it seems that some need an extra helping hand when it comes to meeting their perfect match ...
