FURRY TAG

FURRY TAG | 2018



Hello! As many of you know I have a dog called GusGus and as I freatured him A LOT on my social media ( instagram, youtube, twitter), I thought I would be nice if you could know a bit more about him. I have answered a few general questions so here they come!

What kind of pet is and what breed?
Well, as most of you know, my pet is a male dog called GusGus ( yes, like the Cinderella's lovely fatty mouse). He is a pug even though it doesn't seem so, I will explain; His dad is a pedigree pug but his mummy is a pug x chihuahua, for that reason his face is not 100% as puggy as it could be which I am very happy with as the vet said he won't have respiratory problems as pug sometimes have!


Since when do you have him and when did you get him?
My furry baby came to me the 17th of November 2016, he was given to me by now the one who is my ex boyfriend for Christmas and my birthday all together. I do not like to say he was a present as I feel presents are objects and I am that kind of person who things that dogs are much more than that how to call them present... Like if they were objects or something!!
He was introduced to me the day I flown back from Spain to the UK, so he was wating for his new mummy at the airport!!! I remember he was soooo tinny and I cried of happiness all the way back home ( about 1 hour or so..).




How old is GusGus?
Right now, GusGus has 1 year old and 3 months! His birthday is the 24th of September and obsviously, we had a party just for him to celebrate wher ehe got tons of presents and even a whole cacke (dog friendly) for himself!



Does GusGus have something special?
I think all dogs have something special, in GusGus case are their weird funny faces that he puts most of the time and his tongue out ALL day long, even when he sleeps!!! And yes, I have touched it when he puts it out for a long time and it gets a bit dry so I put some drops of water until he puts it back in (for 1 minute if that....). A part form those, GusGus has been like a therapy dog for me as when I have struggled he has felt I wasn't being myself and cuddled and kissed me until I stopped crying. He also sleeps every night next to me and pushes me to the edge of the bed... Thanks Gus! 


What do you do with him of your free time?
I love to spend time with GusGus! I know that dogs don't live the same amount of time as us, for that reason, every day I try to spend with him as many time as possible. Our favourite thing to do when I have a day off is go on long walkies on the park and get him some extra treats (Yes, he is spoiled rotten). I also like to take pictures of both of us and play chasse with him, as it is the only exercice I do and time to time is nice to practice it with someone, especially if is your dog! 

What nicknames does GusGus has?
Oh dear... Allright I will put some over here but I call him lots of names bless him.. I always call him Gus or GusGus but I also call him sweet pea; Gasgui (no idea why); my lovely; silly sausage; fat boy; among others. The good thing is that he understands what I am saying ( he is quitle clever).



What GusGus means to you?
I struggle A LOT answering this question as I always cry just thinking about it ( I am a very emotional person). GusGus for me means my whole world, he is my most loved member of the family and I am just so lucky and happy to have him in my life! And I don't want to say more because I am already crying... 


I hope you all enjoyed knowing a bit more about my lovely furry baby!
Let me know that you like the most about your pets (all kind of pet) on the comments! 




I love you all xx

ASK FOR HELP

ASK FOR HELP | 2018




Recently, I have had a painful memory coming back to me again, and as I am very impulsive my reaction would have been horrible if it wasn’t because I decided to control myself. I tried really, really, hard and I am proud to say that I made it!
It hasn’t been easy tough, to put you in situation, I have found a photo of my ex with the girl she cheated on me for the last year or so of our relationship. I know it might seem a very stupid thing, but I really struggled with this situation for a long time.

SO, HOW I HAVE DONE IT?

First of all, I have calmed down as there was no point to get dramatic at all and to be honest, he is not worth.
To calm down myself, I take few deep breaths as I felt I was getting a bit anxious.
Once I had my normal conditions back (sort of), I decided to text two friends as I needed to explain myself, and is one of the best things I have ever done. So, my advice would be to don’t keep those kinds of things for yourself even if they are stupid or simple as with the time, you will be paying your accumulate thoughts and frustration with someone who doesn’t deserve it.  
Finally, I decided to entertain myself a little bit, so I decided to read some new bloggers and watch some YouTube. 


HOW I AM IN A WHILE?

Is still not easy even after few hours later but I kept thinking and I just realized that I am stronger than this situation so I just have to embrace it as good as I can and just keep going with what I do.

Even though I don’t have too many friends, the ones I have are amazing plus the blogger community always is there to give you a hand no matter what.
I am a very lonely person and I though I would struggle more but I gave it a shot at socializing more and I feel happier than ever now!


ADVICE:

It doesn’t matter how you feel when those kinds of things happen, you just have to know that you are not alone and the most important bit, WITH help, or asking to someone you will be able to get through even that it seems you cannot survive anymore, or that you don’t want to ask for help as you struggle socializing. Everyone can get through, yes, it might take more or less time, but you will get through.

If you are feeling a bit down, just comment so we can help.

HOW TO SAVE MONEY SHOPPING

HOW TO SAVE money SHOPPING | 2018




How to Save at our shopping is one of the main goals at most families or people who lives alone (like me). Sometimes we buy more than we need, or we usually forget things that are super important! For that reason, I wanted to share with you some tips that I use when is shopping time.

1-     Always make a list of what we need: This will help us to don't buy innecessary items.

2-     Never go shopping with an empty stomach: One thing that I have learned with the time is that if you are hungry while shopping, the chane to buy an innecessary product to make your hunger dissapear will be very high.

3-     Go through the store following a logical pattern: Is easier when we go shopping to follow a pattern as it will allow us to memorise better where the products that we need are and that way, we will avoid to go to the whole shop.

4-      Always check the prices based on the unit price: This is very imporant, specially when the items or food are son sales or special offers like 3x2.

5-     Try other cheaper brands: Even we preffer to buy renamed brands when we can, is very good to try the cheapest brands as they are affiliate to the renamed ones, so at the end, the product is the same it jsut changes the name.

6-     Check the ticket of the purchase after paying: Always check your ticket as you might have some discounts or you could have been charged more than you should due to an offer which was not in the counter system.

7-      Make only one purchase a week: This vary a lot, depends on the family size and how much we eat. Me, personally, I preferr to shop once a week as I have all my menus scheduled so I can buy all the ingridients I need for the whole week. That way, it will save me time and money to go to the super and buy things I don't need.

8-     Set a purchase goal: I usually set a goal to don't spend more than a certain amount of money, so if one week I pay a bit more, the next one I will try to reduce it to make sure I don't spend more than I wanted to.

9-     Think about carrying plastic bags: As we all know, now we have to pay for plastic bags so in order to save a bit more, we should bring our own bags from home.

10-    Buy without children: When we buy without children, we will be avoiding the unnecessary items that children ramdomly pick up and which are very expensive.



 With these tips, and if it was of the people who are going to buy fast and without looking too much, you can save in a very significant way every week. If you want to share more advice, do not hesitate to participate by commenting!
