Groom with Comptoir des Dogs

IMG_2481

Last week we received a couple of new products from the lovely Laure behind her new line, LILA LOVES IT at Comptoir Des Dogs. Laure’s grooming products are made from both natural oils and plant-based herbs.

We were the lucky recipients of both the Shampoo Sensitive and the Paw Care.

Both formulas are neutral in colour, mild in scent and come in easy to use containers with classic monochromatic label and natural packaging. I particularly like the paw care! It wasn’t until I began using it that I noticed the positive changes to Laffy’s paws. With ingredients such as apricot kernel and coconut oils, its obvious how those essential oils help balm and coat his pads. The waxy form softens easily on the fingertips and even helped coat my hands!

I’ve always selected a non-fragrant shampoo or natural solutions containing soothing oatmeal for sensitive skin. I was a bit apprehensive trying a new Shampoo without smelling it beforehand but this one passed the ‘non-parfume’ rule! It has a very mild scent and smells more natural than perfumery. Definately a plus for pups with a quirk for rubbing themselves over everything and everywhere just to remove the scent off from thier coat and skin. With ingredients such as avocado oil, chamomile and yarrow extract,  a lot goes a long way and I would recommend a tablespoon /if that/ for a french bulldog.

Welcome Home Lorelei

Hello Lovelies!

In general consensus. 

Are already following The Printable Concept on Instagram?

THE PRINTABLE CØNCEPT, Created by Julie who herself is an artist, graphic designer and the entrepreneur of this webshop whose digital pages are beautifully presented and go in-line with the prints both she and the carefully selected artists have created for a monochromatic & minimalist lover such as myself. I’ve been following Julie’s Instagram account for awhile and when I saw Lorelei, I fell in love with this print!

Lorelei, designed by artist Julie Groleau, is still looking for a permanent home in our flat, but knowing me, this sexy and thought provoking print will be moving around and around for years to come. Instagram will have to tell her story in pictures  but for now, she’s styled here…

Cotton Mouth?

Today I tried going back to my usual Florist in search of 4 cotton branches to help decorate our home for Fall. While headed that way I was thinking about all the things I could do with the buds and most especially how I would string a few along a thread of natural twine. Finally reaching my flora destination and grazing past the black plastic buckets, I didn’t see any. Well aware of how the shop displays their stock and not willing to wait in que to ask if they expected more any time soon, both my impatience and Laffy’s yanking tow, it was best we started out on a cotton branch hunt. Thirty minutes later and after walking by 6 other floral shops in our neighborhood, I had finally given up and decided that I’d happily live with the 2 that I already had. I made good use of these lovely branches, even snipped off a few buds so that I can share with you, some simply ways on how to style these fluffy white buds for your dining table. I’ll unravel the other styled images through out the home on my Instagram account at parisandpups.
