4 Faves – Version 30.0

Posted by lori . 4 Comments



I keep CLR on-hand for dissolving tough calcium and lime deposits and surface rust stains.  It’s effective, and CLR has earned the EPA’s DfE (Design for the Environment) designation which means that it contains only those ingredients that pose the least concern to human health and environmental affects.  Keep in mind though, CLR is corrosive, so make sure you read the instructions and use it only as directed.

Rubit! Clip

I wanted a fun and functional way to move Freedom, Casper and Nikki’s dog tags from collar to collar (Greyhounds have a thing about fabulously fashionable collars).  The Rubit! Clip filled the bill for me.  It comes in a variety of sizes (my houndies sport the medium size) and colors.  You can even get them with a little bling (rhinestones).


I found these on vacation when I needed a pair of shoes for walking on the beach.  I picked up a pair of Crocs and fell in love.  They’re cute, super lightweight, comfortable and easy to clean.  I’ll be checking out the Crocs brand a little more closely in the future.

Thin Styling Iron

Yet another vacation find!  My styling iron was on its last leg, and I was tired of getting burned using a regular-size styling iron on my short hair.  The thinner plates are perfect.  This one is from Zoë.  Aren’t the polka dots adorable…that’s a bonus.

    ok im a HUGE fan of CLR – I have to use it alot for the shower around our house.

    Now the dog tag…. I looked into those but im so scared that it would come unclipped and fall off – Fred and Haylie love to wrestle and play pretty rough. Whats your take on that?

    Oh that flat iron is cute!!

      Hi Kari,

      The clip on the Rubit! Clip is VERY secure. I liked it for that very reason. In fact, sometimes when I’m switching it to a new collar, I don’t like it for that reason :).

    I love CLR, too! How did I manage without that stuff?

    I LOVE those Rubit clips! I haven’t seen the bling ones yet, but now I MUST hunt them down! We used little brass clips before, but I like the Rubits better. To answer Kari’s question, I’ve used them for over a year and they’ve been fine for the Greyhounds and the GSD, and I don’t worry about them coming off at all!

    You didn’t find out about Crocs until now?! Oh, Lori!

    You’ve seen my hair, no sort of ironing whatsoever will ever tame it. I have Hermoine Granger hair, and I accept that.

      I KNOW, how did I miss Crocs! At least I’m “with it” now.

      You have beautiful hair, but I know what you mean. I have to do a post about my hair. My hair is very curly and I’ve fought it my entire life.
