Slo-Bowl is a Playful Feeder that Lets Your Pet Graze All Day
The “feeding-time frenzy” is a scenario dog owners know all too well: you fill the dog bowl with food and as you stand up to call your pooch, your furry companion is already there, scarfing down his chow. And there is NO WAY to tear him away until every last bite is gone.
As you can imagine, eating so quickly is not good for your dog—it can lead to tons of digestive issues and aid in overeating, all of which lead to an unfit Fido. But now you can prolong your dog’s feeding time thanks to Slo-Bowl, a food bowl that promotes natural eating habits by letting your dog forage for food in a playful way.
When you look down at a Slo-Bowl, it looks like a maze: small grooves twist and turn around the inside of the feeding bowl creating quite a modern design. But there’s more than aesthetics going on here: these ridges are the key to eliminating binge eating.
Think of it like an eating obstacle course, a playful challenge that not only slows your dogs chomping pace and allows for more incremental eating, but also engages your pooch in the process. Since dogs evolved from wolves, it’s no surprise they’d be up for a hunt. Slo-Bowl works for dogs of all sizes, and better yet, it’s Shar Pei-approved! Just check out the testimonial when you scroll down on their website. ;)
Slo-Bowl is made with high-quality, food-safe materials that are BPA and PVC-free. It comes in four designs and both bright and neutral colors, all which have a non-slip rubber base to hold the bowl in place when overeager eaters charge. They’re also top-shelf dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning extremely easy. The health-conscious concept is so appealing it begs the question, when will Slo-Bowl come out with a version for their owners? ;)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
