The Buzz: Helping Those in Need

Helping Those in Need

It’s been another splendid week here at, and as always, for that, I am eternally grateful. However, as blessed as we are, I also spent much of my week reflecting on the devastating hurricane, Florence, that is headed towards the United States and what people must be going through as they prepare to evacuate their homes.

Can you even imagine?

So today, I decided it was time to take action! Instead of simply watching the devastating destruction play out on my television screen, I’ve decided to be proactive and to help as much as I can, even from Chicago! Want to get involved? I found this resource to be a great way to start.

Helping Those in Need

Don’t think you have much money to give? Darlings, any amount helps! I think people forget that sometimes… but even $5 can make the world of difference to those families (and pets) stuck in a shelter or for task forces down in the heart of it all bringing supplies to those in need.

Even if you don’t have any money to spare, that is also perfectly fine. Donating your time is another beautiful way to show you care. I know this community of strong, powerful women are some of the most caring people out there. So let’s show the world just how true that is!

How will you step up and do your part?

How Did You Get Your Name?

When I asked for your help naming our little pup, you did not disappoint! Thank you all so much for taking the time to help my ultimate concierge and me welcome our new pooch home!

However, it didn’t take long for the name we originally chose to weigh heavily on my mind. If you’ve ever named a pet, you probably know what a big decision it can be! But after much deliberation, and a few names already, we have decided on one that we are so very happy with! Want to know what it is? Read the story!
