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.

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 ...

Nine to Fido: 10 Careers Working With Dogs

Stylish-dog-walker.jpg

Come tomorrow morning there will be little escape from the fact that the Christmas holidays are officially O.V.E.R!

This time last year I was balking at the prospect of returning to work. I’d fallen out of love with my job and ultimately my career, was desperate for change and longed to spend more time on Barkarama and with Basil. Fast forward to the second half of the year, I finally made the leap, got busy creating Barkarama 2.0, enjoyed more hours with B-Boy and signed up as an Independent Stylist for jewellery brand Stella & Dot. Money has been tight but I don’t regret my decision for a second and thankfully I have a very supportive boyfriend. Enjoyment aside, it’s been a great opportunity to re-evaluate my professional path and give me the head-space I so needed.

Perhaps, like me, the Christmas break has left you questioning your current career too? Maybe it’s always been your dream to work with dogs? It’s never too late to make a change so here are ten careers working with dogs to help inspire you to switch from the Nine to Five to the Nine to Fido …
