Mr Fox: The Positive Impact A Therapy Dog Makes On The World

There is something truly special about the bond between a person and their dog.  Dogs are man’s best friend for a reason.  Dogs are loyal, compassionate and love unconditionally.  There are so many amazing stories out there about dogs enriching the lives of so many people.  At the end of the day our pets become a significant part of our family.  I am delighted to share with you a little bit about my good friend Alicia Proud’s adorable dog Mr. Fox.  Fox is an incredibly sweet dog that makes a positive impact in the lives of everyone he encounters.  Fox has been trained as a therapy dog and helps provide emotional support for those in need.   Q&A with Alicia Proud, Meet Mr. Fox. Is Mr. Fox a rescue?  Please, tell us a bit more about Mr. Fox.  AP: Yes Foxy is a rescue, we popped into the Cayman Islands Humane Society shortly after arriving home from getting married in 2017 and I saw this little feeble pup in the quarantine section not doing so good. …

Masquerade, Masquerade!

  Who doesn’t love a Masquerade Ball?  A night filled with mystery, intrigue and enchantment.  On October 11th, The Cayman Islands Humane Society held their first “Tops & Tails Masquerade Ball.”  It was an honor to be a part of the CIHS Fundraising Committee, together we created a spectacular event to benefit the cats and dogs at the shelter.   I met some of the most amazing people, and everyone was so lovely to work with.  A great team effort! As part of the CIHS Fundraising Committee, my best friend Michelle, and I volunteered to help with decorations.  We make an amazing creative team and had a blast working all hours of the night making these decorations. Our Masquerade Inspirations & Decorations The Teasers As a means of promoting the event, I came up with a series of promotional teasers to add to the element of intrigue about the event. Teasers Gallery   Setting The Stage Michelle came up with the fantastic idea to put together a montage of masquerade scenes and make our very own …

Birthday Girl Wishes xo

    Hello everyone!  I hope you all are having a beautiful day!  The weekend was crazy beautiful from a Masquerade Ball (will soon have a post on that with the behind the scenes of making the decorations) and then a pre-birthday party in 1920’s fashion. For me it’s the end of a beautiful era my roaring twenties are officially over.  Last night I celebrated the end of my twenties in true roaring twenties fashion (flapper girl costumes included) with a Gatsby themed party with some of the most amazing people I know! Thanks for the memories! Pink Champagne and Red Velvet Cupcakes was the way to end the night, and also makes a spectacular Birthday Breakfast. Now it is time to embrace and celebrate a new decade.  As far as I am concerned age is just a number and we are as old as we feel.  In the wise words of one of my favorite writers: “We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.” – George Bernard …
