Trespass Kitsy Softshell Jacket: Review

When Trespass asked me to review their Women’s Kitsy Softshell Jacket, I knew the perfect place to put it through it’s paces. During the winter, the British coast is one of my favourite places to be.

And so many of those are soppy staffies like Bubbles. So if you can manage to find an extra gift, do spare a thought for the dogs at your local shelter and drop a gift off for them. Many shelters also have an Amazon gift list so you can buy something that will be sent to them directly. Here are my 5 gift ideas for dogs. 1. A…
