Handmade Disney Keychain Review #BAYAREACUSTOMZZ

Links to this post
Ora recently had her 19th birthday and I thought the best present would be for her to get her driver's license. The cost was the same as what I paid for Taylee's birthday present so I thought it was fair. I took Ora out to practice in the area that was set up prior to her test the next day, plus we arrived early the day of her test so she could practice more. She did such a great job! She has been driving my new car lately and I even had her drive my truck in case she were to ever have to and she did a really great job driving it as well. She will be getting her own car soon so she will need a keychain for her keys Recently we were given the opportunity to review a Handmade Disney Keychain.



This keychain was made by the same company that made Bandit's dog tag by the same custom accessories Boutique which is #BAYAREACUSTOMZ. This Handmade Minnie Mouse keychain is incredibly cute! The keychains are very stylish and made from quality materials so that your keychain will last. They are completely clear keychains, but you get to customize them with the options that are available. You can get a Mickey or Minnie keychain with or without glitter and the colors currently available are gold, silver, pink, purple, red, orange, green, blue, and if you choose Minnie you choose 2 colors if you wish so you can customize the bow a different color than the headband. 


If you decide you would rather not have glitter and you just want a colored keychain you can choose from black, gold, silver, red, green, blue, magenta, and again if you choose Minnie you can choose 2 colors if you wish so that you can customize her bow with a different color than the headband. 



I let Ora choose hers and she had the keychain all in a glittery red. The glitter really shows up and it is a very pretty red color, and she just loves it! We recommend the Homemade Disney Minnie Mouse Keychain, they will make a great gift. If you are wanting something a little different they do also have customizable letter keychains as well.

Buddy's Oven-Baked Crunchy Dog Biscuits Review

Links to this post
We have 3 fur babies, but one of them just isn't a big fan of dog biscuits. Harley is a Boston Terrier and she turns her nose up at every dog biscuit I offer her that the other dogs eat. In order to treat her I have always had to end up giving Harley a slice of cheese or some sort of other people food like a small piece of meat. Recently we were given the opportunity to give our dogs Buddy's Oven-Baked Biscuits to review them. 


These healthy crunchy dog treats are made with 4 simple ingredients and there is no added corn, soy, yeast, salt, fillers, artificial flavors or additives. They are crunchy and in a shape of a gingerbread man and they are made with natural peanut butter they are also made in the USA. 



I started feeding the dogs other the Buddy's Biscuits and Harley acted like she wanted one when I went to get the slice of cheese. I opened the cheese and started to feed it to her and she was staring at the Buddy's Biscuits box on the counter. She just acted like she didn't want the cheese. I actually spoke out loud, "Yeah Right"! Then, I said, "You're not going to eat these" while I picked up the box. The other dogs were sitting there and I fed them another one while I let her sniff one. She usually sniffs dog treats or biscuits and turns her nose up and walks toward the refrigerator knowing full well she's going to get people food. Initially I didn't offer her one because I didn't think she was even going to be interested in them. 



Harley wanted the dog biscuit so I gave it to her I figured she was going to drop it and either walk away or wait for the slice of cheese I had like she always does. This isn't what happened at all! I was so excited because she ended up eating the whole thing (I did break it up for her to eat it).  Don't judge me but I fed her 3 the first day because she actually ate the first one and I was so excited that she liked them.


I always felt bad that the other dogs were getting a dog treat and she wasn't eating the same thing. I honestly thought one that one of reasons she wouldn't eat them was because of her being old and maybe they hurt her teeth to chew but I've broken others before and she wouldn't eat them. Then I wondered if she just liked the people food better and knew she would get it instead.



Harley really surprised me this time that she actually ate the dog biscuits and she seemed to really enjoy them. Bandit and Honeybunn really liked them too and we will be buying more! I absolutely love that there are only 4 ingredients and they are all natural so I know what they are eating and they are made in the USA, and we highly recommend them.
