I think this kitty might be broken, haha!

Get in My Closet/Home Please : I could really use the Bye Bye Stress from Batty Baths // Simple black and white striped shirts are the best // Beautiful summer dress // Adorable hanging planters // This dress is my favorite! // I'm a sucker for polka dot flats // This fringe bag is pretty rocking // Classic Vans will always be my jam // I know some amazing mom's that would love this sweater // Overalls!!!
This weekend is going to be jam packed with frantically finishing up work, working on the Scamp, and hanging out with friends and family before we make our way back to the mountain. Ahhhh! I hope we can get everything done in time. Either way Bessy is leaps and bounds better than when we bought her last year, and I'm just so excited to get her on the road! What are you all up to this weekend?

Happy Birthday to the Cats!

Happy Birthday to the Cats! Chewy.com Review - littleladylittlecity.com
It's no secret that we love our cats, so it should be no surprise that we celebrate our cat's birthdays around here, haha. When Wigs and Sylvester's adorableness caught the eyes of the lovely people over at Chewy.com they contacted me about reviewing one of their cat products, The Honest Kitchen Treats Wishes. After taking a look I thought they sounded like the perfect treat to celebrate some birthdays! For the event I made birthday hats that I swear they loved wearing, and they feasted on some super yummy fish treats. I'm not going to lie, I think these might be some of the cutest pictures of that I've taken of these two little furballs, and Will doesn't look bad either, hehe. 
Happy Birthday to the Cats! Chewy.com Review - littleladylittlecity.com
What initially caught my eye with these treats is that they're 100% freeze dried haddock. Our two puff balls are all about fish in this house, so much so that Will can hardly have a tuna sandwich without drawing an audience that would be happy have whatever he couldn't eat. Another thing I like is that these treats can be given to both cats and dogs. Each piece is pretty large, so they might be geared a little more towards dogs, but you can easily break them into smaller pieces for cats too. Wigs and Sylvester both seemed to really like the treats, though they were a little confused about why it was so dry. Wigs would take a bite then look at me kind of confused before committing to chewing it up. So, to make it easier, I put the dehydrated treat under the faucet to add some moister and they gobbled the treats up! Looks like they prefer their fish to be wet, haha.

And because this review was for cat treats I had to ask the cats what they thought as well:

Wigs - "meooooow"  
Sylvester - *sniff sniff* "mew"

Glowing reviews all around! 

What kind of treats do you pets go bananas for?

Happy almost July 4th to all my American readers! I can hardly believe that we are already in July, where the heck has this year gone? Will and I have been glued to our computers these last couple of weeks, hence the cricket chirps on the blog this past week. We are hoping we can get enough work off our backs so we can finish up the Scamp just a little bit more before we get going. And I'm also hoping for a little time in the pool this weekend, with temperatures in the 100's it's basically the best place to be. What are you all up to this weekend?

What I'm Watching - Mr. Robot

What I'm Watching - Mr Robot on USA - littleladylittlecity.com
I'm such a sucker for a visually beautiful TV show or film, and USA Network's new show Mr. Robot is definitely that. I can forgive many for their failings so long as there's pretty cinematography or visual effects, but not all *cough* Jupiter Ascending *cough*. Thankfully, with this show, there's lots to enjoy visually, but that's not all.
What I'm Watching - Mr Robot on USA - littleladylittlecity.com
The show follows Elliot (Rami Malek), a loner cyber security specialist by day and a vigilante hacker by night. After meeting a mysterious man who Elliot refers to as Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), he learns he has a chance to go after a group of multinational CEO's who are involved in much more insidious business than his normal take downs.

The opening line of the show is "Hello Friend" and from that moment on we have an inside look into what Elliot is thinking and planning on doing. Malek's monotone and yet melodic voice sucks you in, really making you feel close, or at least invested in him pretty early on. The footage moves between a cool desaturated color pallet to bright and colorful one that illustrates how he sees the world vs. how he images things. It is very reminiscent of the use of color in Hannibal (RIP), and is something you don't often see on basic cable shows. This style paired with the hypnotic trance like (at times) soundtrack playing throughout the show had me shocked at how quickly the hour or so went by.

Don't get me wrong, I am loving this show so far (rest of the season don't fail me now), but there definitely are some stupid tropes that are hard to miss. A few good examples: 'X kind of mental disorder equals a kind of super power', in love with the best friend (maybe manic pixie, too early to tell) who makes you want to be a better person, an evil corporation out to ruin the world, and the use of real-world imagery/events to show the downfall of society. However, if the rest of the season looks and feels as good as the pilot, I'm inclined to overlook these faults.

I think in recent years the USA Network has been moving towards shows that are darker, like Rush, instead of lighter fare like Royal Pains. So far Mr. Robot is the network's biggest departure in this direction. However, those darker shows haven't done so well with the typical USA crowd, so fingers crossed Mr. Robot sticks around or at least catches the eyes over at Netflix if it doesn't win over audiences. It's already picked up for a second season, yay! So what do you think, are you going to give Mr. Robot a chance? 

The pilot episode is available on demand with a new episode tonight and every Wednesday 10/9C.

Can we all just take a second and admire the adorable illustration Will did for me and this blog series! I am so in love with it! Now if I could only get the cats to sit through a whole show/movie with me, haha!
