Georgia SPCA 5th Annual Fall Gala "An Evening in Paris"





Hi everyone, as you all know I'm a volunteer at Georgia SPCA and I'm helping them this year with their big fundraiser event. This year Georgia SPCA is putting on the dog at its fifth annual fundraiser, with a runway show of haute couture fashions for the well-dressed dog.

 On September 6, 2014, from 6 PM until 11 PM, the Georgia SPCA celebrates “An Evening in Paris” at the Gwinnett Center Ballroom, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth. The evening includes a silent auction, with music and dancing courtesy of DJ Mr. Christopher of Audiocake , and catering by Proof of the Pudding, but the climax of the evening might just be the dogs who will walk the catwalk to model designer fashions created by Linda Higgins of Classy Doggie Designs. 
 
Linda shows her couture canine fashions at fashion week events all over the country and is excited to be participating in “An Evening in Paris.” Linda’s fashions have been featured on the front cover of Chihuahua Connection and Pet Style magazines, in the movie Beverly Hills Chihuahua and can be found in boutiques all over the world. Linda’s design won the Best Dressed in Show award at the 2013 New York Pet Fashion Show.


This is one of our most important fundraisers of the year, “said Georgia SPCA Executive Director Jane Stewart. “We depend on proceeds from this event to help us rescue and find new homes for more than 1,200 abandoned, neglects and abused pets each year, and to provide low-cost vaccines and spay-neuter services to Georgia pet owners.”



Tickets for the event are $75 per person and can be purchased at the Georgia SPCA adoption center at 1175 Buford Hwy in Suwanee, or online at www.GeorgiaSPCA.org or Paris.GeorgiaSPCA.org. Business sponsorships are also available. For more information or to purchase a sponsorship for this event, contact Jane Lumbatis at 678-852-2952.

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*



When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 


I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
