How to celebrate your dog's birthday | Rascal turns 3 today! 🐶🎂

January 01, 2022 0 Comments

Hello everyone, Happy New Year!

Today, the 1st of January is Rascal's third birthday! For those of you who do not know, Rascal is my stubborn Maltipoo. He is my first dog, and to be honest, I never thought I'd be one of those pet guardians that celebrate their dog's birthday. But, since Rascal is a New Year's pup, and my family and I always celebrate at home, we don't pass the opportunity to also celebrate his birthday. My father's birthday is on the 30th of December, so it's a three-day celebration at our house! My dad is Rascal's favourite person; it might have something to do with the fact that they are both Capricorns!

Birthdays are celebrated to make someone feel extra special on the anniversary of their birth. Dogs don't get it, so any birthday celebration is only for our amusement. Our dogs are part of the family, so when it comes to their birthday we want to make it special. There are plenty of fun and easy ways to make your dog’s birthday unforgettable. Here are some ideas:

Host a birthday party.

Invite some of your friends and family over, along with their furry friends. Make sure the dogs get along before inviting them to the party.

Let your dog pick out a gift.

If you are getting your dog an extra special present for their birthday, try letting them pick it out themselves.

Make a dog-friendly cake or treats.

You can show your dog some extra love on their birthday by making them a special treat. You can find plenty of recipes on the internet.

Prepare a homemade meal for your dog.

Rascal is a very picky eater but, he devours every meal I cook for him! Most dogs will prefer a home-cooked meal over kibble or wet food any day.

Explore a new trail with your dog.

You can make your walk extra special on their birthday by taking them somewhere brand new. Explore a new hiking trail together or take your dog to a new park.

Pamper and spoil your dog.

Spoil your dogs and give them some extra love and attention on their birthday. Give them a nice homemade meal, an extra-long walk, a new toy, a relaxing massage, and extra cuddles.

On his birthday Rascal gets some presents, a homemade meal, a long walk and lots of cuddles! 

How do you celebrate your dog’s birthday?

Turning 35!

May 26, 2020 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

Next Saturday I'll turn 35!  Most people don't consider 35 a milestone birthday but, think about it; just like that, you are halfway to 70!  Additionally, you're closer to your 40s than your 20s.  So I believe that that makes 35 a milestone birthday, especially for us women.  Many women freak out at the idea of turning thirty-five, personally, I believe that age is nothing but a number and that you are only as old as you feel, as cliché as it may sound

35 birthday cake candles

I remember publishing a post titled: Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Birthday confetti on my birthday a few years ago, now I went back to see when that was, and I realised that it was seven years ago!  Wow - 7 years!  Fun fact: Back then I used to sign my post with my screenname; Euphrasie85, because for some reason I didn't want to "reveal my identity" 😂, what was I thinking.  This also means that 5 years have already gone by since my #GoldenBirthday.  Where did the time go?  

I started this blog when I was just 25 years old, to talk about acne and share my DIY recipes and home remedies.  Yes, that's right; this year Cosette's Beauty Pantry is turning 10; double digits.  I guess, in a way, this blog is also hitting a milestone this year.  Since lately I've been writing fewer DIY beauty posts, and more fashion and lifestyle posts, I thought about changing the blog's name, but somehow that didn't feel right.  

If you have any thoughts or suggestions about renaming the blog, let me know in the comment section below!  P.S. What do you think about the new template?

Have an awesome day!

1.  Birthday cards with a heartfelt handwritten message inside 🎂

2.  Homemade vegan treats 🍰 🍫 🍬

3.  Mystery books 📚 

4.  A travel hula hoop 🎁

5.  Shoes that won't hurt my feet and cause blisters (size 36) 👠 👡

6.  A little pom pom (aka a Pomeranian male puppy)! 🐶 🐾 

7.  Meeting someone special 💘 💑 💕

What's number one on your wishlist?

I'm officially 30 years old! #GoldenBirthday

May 31, 2015 0 Comments
 Hello everyone!

I'm officially 30 years old!  Yesterday I celebrated my Golden Birthday, 30 on the 30th!  In case you did not know; a person's Golden or Grand Birthday (also referred to as their "Lucky Birthday", "Champagne Birthday", or "Star Birthday"), occurs when they turn the age of their birth day

Turning 30 feel a little strange.  Half of me feels like I’ve been past my twenty's for a few years now and half of me wonders if I’m really old enough to be THIRTY years old!  This also means that, I  have to update my online profiles from "in my late 20's" to "in my 30's".

I'm looking forward to this new phase in my life.  Thanks to all those who made my birthday so special!  I also want to wish a very happy birthday to all my fellow, eternally youthful, Geminis!

Have a magnificent day!

It's my birthday (and I'll blog if I want to)

May 30, 2014 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today is my 29th birthday!  I have never been one to make a big deal out of it, but I am realising that I need to celebrate getting older, and enjoy each moment because we are not promised tomorrow.  So today, there’s no new DIY beauty recipe or tutorial.  Instead, I am chilling and enjoying turning 29!  

Instead of my usual devil's food birthday cake, this year I had birthday brownies!  If you didn't know; I'm a certified chocoholic! ;)

Don't forget to follow me to get the latest updates and sneak peeks!  On my Facebook page you can currently find sneak peeks of 4 product reviews that will be posted in mid-June.

My birthday wishlist

May 28, 2014 0 Comments
Hello everyone! 

I just realised that my 29th birthday  is only two days away!  I'm not a big fan of birthdays but still, what would a birthday be without a wish list?  I don't really need anything but here's a list of little things I'd like to get for my birthday. 

OPI Little Bits of Neon Set
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa
NYX The Curve Felt Tip Eye Liner
NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil
An Infuser Glass Teapot (I love loose leaf teas)
NYX Butter Gloss Set Enchanted Kiss
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

What do you think?  What should I get myself for my b-day?

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Birthday confetti

May 30, 2013 3 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today is my 28th birthday and this is a special NOTD post! (tutorial below J)

These are the perfect nails for your birthday or any fun spring/summer event.


I started with a coat of white polish, the white will make the bright colours on top of it pop!  Then I used a dotting tool/head of a bobby pin dipped in the polish to create the confetti.  I used neon pink, orange and orange glitter.  To create some contrast and add some sparkle, I finished with a gold glitter top coat.

I love the end result!  I hope you like it too.
