It’s the day after Thanksgiving and I’m still at home, relaxing in my pajamas. I refuse to battle the Black Friday crowds because I really don’t do crowds and shopping online is much more fun anyways! I’m ready to start decorating for Christmas! I always rely on good ole’ Pinterest for ideas and inspiration. I was so excited that Better Homes and Gardens invited me back this year to their Everything Holidays Pinning Party! It’s going on ALL DAY, November 28th, on Pinterest.

I had the pleasure of attending a couple of these pinning parties last year as well as being featured in the Better Homes and Gardens holiday gift guide! Today, myself and many other talented bloggers will be pinning our favorite holiday ideas including recipes, decorating ideas, crafts, and much more!

My current dog leash has so many attachments hanging from it that’s it’s starting to look like one of those key chains from the 80’s. When I’m out on a walk with Chuy, there are certain things I need like poop bags, treats, a light, and even a travel bowl! I wanted to share a new product I discovered called the Flexi Vario Leash that’s helping me stay organized on dog walks.

How to Stay Organized on Dog Walks by

There is definitely a great divide among dog owners when it comes to retractable leashes. Personally, we’ve used one since Chuy was a puppy and have never had any issues. I find retractable leashes easier to use, more convenient, and overall I just prefer them. I recently had the chance to review the Flexi Vario leash and I’m in love!

Overall, it has a sleek and chic look to it. I can carry a light, poop bags, and treats without my leash looking tacky and weighed down. Plus, it fits nicely in my hand due to the soft grip material. What I love the most is how this leash can be customized to your needs with different belts and accessories. The teal color goes perfectly with Chuy’s Winter Wonderland sweater!


I ordered my Vario Tape Leash in a size small and the color teal. I also added the following accessories:

  • LED Lighting System
  • Multi Box

The LED Lighting System has two different lights; one is like a flash light and the other is a red caution light to let others know you’re on the road.  You attach it to the side of the leash with Velcro. The Multi Box is a handy storage attachment for treats or poop bags that snaps right under the bottom of the leash.


The Flexi Vario is great is you can easily control your dog on a retractable leash and want a way to stay organized on dog walks. What type of leash do you use? Would you try this one?
