Happy St. Paddy’s Day

Hey Savvy Readers!

I hope you all have on your green today! In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m wearing my “Kiss Me I’m Irish” tee that I picked up last year for a buck. And I made sure that the whole fam put on green too, even though we don’t have anything planned for today. I also tried something different, I’m rocking a  hot pink lip to go along my cute tee. Check it out…

Well I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend! And enjoy your St. Paddy’s Day! Until next time…

The Love VoxBox

Hey “Savvy Readers!”

I can’t remember how I stumbled upon Influenster but I love it. I joined the Influenster community back in December and have already received my first VoxBox. I’m sure you are wondering, “what in the world is Influenster and a VoxBox?” Well Influenster is a “Community of trendsetters invited to share their lifestyles and show their influence to qualify for personalized product shipments, special rewards and exclusive deals from the brands they love.” And a VoxBox is a box of personalized goodies sent to your doorstep in exchange for your feedback/review. And the best part is that most of the products are new. Now doesn’t that sound awesome? I thought it did and since I love trying out new products, I couldn’t resist signing up. And I am so happy that I did. Qualifying for a VoxBox is easy. Simply sign up to join the Influenster community here, unlock badges (quick surveys that tell Influenster who you are and what you like) and that’s it. Easy, right?

Well that is exactly what I did and I recently received my LoveVoxBox in the mail. I was super excited when I saw it on my doorstep and even more thrilled when I saw what was inside. Check out my LoveVoxBox goodies…

  • Nail Dress Ultimate Nail Fashion – If you read my previous post, Nailed It, then you already know that I super excited to try these out.

  • Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Chocolate Creamy Devotion Bar – This just sounds divine! YUM!

  • Gillette Venus & Olay Razor – I shave everyday (don’t judge me) so having a quality razor is a must. This one has five blades plus Olay moisture bars…can you say shaving bliss?

  • Stash Herbal Tea Sampler – I love tea hot or cold! Stash is caffeine free and made from 100% natural ingredients. *sip sip away*

  • Truvía® natural sweetener – And this pairs perfectly with my Stash tea.

I will be posting reviews on some of the products later on, so stay tuned. Are any of you members of the Influenster community? Or have you tried any of the products included in the LoveVoxBox? Please do tell! And if you are interested, you can connect with Influeneter on FaceBook, Twitter and Pintrest. Until next time…

Loving I’Me by J. Thomas

Hey “Savvy Readers!”

You all already know how much I love my I’Me by J. Thomas earrings! And you may even be tired of me talking about them but…I first discovered I’Me when I saw a fellow YouTuber rocking a pair of the I’Me earrings back in December (a few if not one week) before Christmas and I just had to have a pair (or two). I showed them to my hubby thinking that I would probably get them Valentine’s Day because of such short notice…Well to my surprise I did get my lovely earrings Christmas Day. After I opened my earrings, my hubby told about the awesome customer service that he received from I’Me and how impressed he was with the company. Of course, I immediately fell in love with my earrings and I rock them every chance I get. I am also saving my other pair for the summer (woohoo!). And I now have my eyes set on one of her fabulous shoulder pieces. But let me tell you, I’Me offers much more than just earrings and shoulder pieces…

“I’Me (pronounced I’m me) is chic, sophisticated and fashionable design to fit ALL SHAPES & SIZES!  Featuring unique pieces available for additional customization and style.” quoted from I’Me

Ms. J Thomas, the designer of I’Me, is a native of Montgomery, AL (my home town) and graduate of Alabama A&M University class of 2009. She believes “that designs should be made to compliment  a person’s size and shape.” And I love that about Ms. Thomas and her company. I’Me is offering up unique, customized, quality pieces and awesome customer service all at a reasonable price. This company is really doing “big things” and you don’t want to miss out.  And what makes me love, love, love I’Me even more is having the honor of being featured on her site in the “I Love Me Some I’Me” Valentine’s Day release, under the Small Convo Earrings tab. So while you are there checking me out (lol), please take a look around at all of the awesome designs I’Me by J. Thomas has to offer and let her know that The Savvy Housewife sent you….I promise you will not be disappointed!

Stay Savvy!

The Greatest Show on Earth

Hey “Savvy Readers!” It has been another great weekend for me and I hope all of you enjoyed yours as well. The fam and I had a blast (and a half) at the  Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus! And yes, especially if you’re a kid at heart like me, it is “The Greatest Show on Earth!” There were lions, tigers and clowns…OH MY! I found myself sitting there with my eyes glazed over just wishing I was a kid again. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the circus…


I always love the elephants!


We couldn't get everyone to look at the camera =)



  I hope you all had a great weekend too. There’s nothing like spending time with the ones you love! Have an awesome week y’all! =)

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Hey “Savvy Readers!” First let me state, that without Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and countless others like him, I am not sure what condition our nation would be in. Our country has overcome so many obstacles and yet we have so many more mountains to climb. So in honor of Dr. King I would like to share with you a few of my favorite quotes. Enjoy!


“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”


Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”


Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.


 Happy Birthday Dr. King!


Happy New Year!!!

Happy 2012 “Savvy Readers”! First let me apologize, I only managed to write three post last year, which isn’t much to brag about, in fact it is extremely disappointing. But this is a new year and I refuse to dwell on negative things. Instead I am setting my “eyes on the prize!” I’m not big on making New Year’s resolutions because as we all know they are broken within weeks and we end up back where we started. But for some reason I just feel excited about all that God has in store for me this year. So I have decided to set a few goals for myself this year, one of those is being more dedicated to this blog. I have also decided to venture into the wonderful world of…(drumroll, please) “YOUTUBE!” (But I will post more about that later.) Have any of you made New Year’s Resolutions or goals for this year? I would love to hear what you have planned…like I said I just know that God has some great things in store for 2012.

Here’s my theme song for 2012…”it’s my year because I claim it!” Enjoy!
