Paw-sitively Fabulous: We're Gonna Be Royals

This weekend marked the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton in Manhattan, right in the LHBW neighborhood of the Upper East Side. After a call from one of my besties and my mother encouraging us to see if we could catch a glimpse of Britain's most popular royals, Holly and I donned our Barbour coats and Burberry scarves and braved the dipping temperatures to join fellow New Yorkers outside the Carlyle Hotel to await the arrival of Kate & Wills.

Though we didn't actually see the royals (the crowd was too dense), we did catch a glimpse of their motorcade and experience the excitement from the crowd. Though temps were low (27!), spirits were high, and people were singing a mixture of songs they felt the visiting rulers would enjoy, which seemed to really just be an endless loop of Christmas classics people don't know the words too mixed with a few selections from The Sound of Music (are the Duke and Duchess fans???).

In the end, we came hold with cold toes but warm hearts--it was such a classic New York moment, and we're glad we took part! Especially Holly, who was interviewed by a British news station for being the only pup waiting!

Speaking of royal treatment, we are obsessing over BaubleBar's new paw-sitively Princess worthy collar selection. As a long time fan of BaubleBar's fashionable pieces and Manhattan same day delivery options, I will certainly be tempted to add one of these sparkling Baubles to Holly's Holly-day wardrobe. Below are some of my top picks from the collection, as well as the Human pieces I would pair them with for a sparkling matching ensemble worthy of tea with the Princess herself!

Until Next Time, Darlings!


  1. Love those Baublebar collars! Some of my favorite pieces have been Baublebar cuffs.

  2. How exciting! And the collars are too cute.

  3. Fun! Love baublebar, I need to start shopping there again!

  4. I'd have loved being there for that. I didn't realize Baublebar had collars!
