Meet my Australian Shepherd Puppy, Beau! ♡

Many of you have requested vlogs or more casual videos featuring my Australian Shepherd puppy Beau, so here is my first attempt! I generally avoid personal content, but Beau is such a sweetie that it's impossible to avoid sharing my love for him. I will admit it has been an intense three weeks with moving into my new place and training Beau, but it's all been worth the sleep deprivation!

Beau @ 8 weeks   +   Beau @ 11 weeks
Once he is done teething in the next several months, I plan to purchase a new coffee table and other furniture. For now, I am using a couple cheap pieces that can withstand a few licks and nips. Beau is such a fast learner and for the most part, eager to please, which has made his training and behavioral corrections a breeze! If any of you are interested in more Australian Shepherd basics (like coat colors, food, etc.) and clicker training, I'd be happy to show you in the future. Just let me know! Beau will be able to walk outside and venture onto public grass in four weeks, so I will be sure to film our adventures then. He is growing up SO fast that I wanted to share his puppy moments before it's too late!

Since I review so much makeup on a monthly basis, I am often asked which products are my absolute must-haves, what I cannot live without. This line-up does vary somewhat every 6 months, as I'm constantly experimenting to find the latest and greatest, but many of these items have been mainstays in my collection for a year (or years) now!
