Hey! I wanted take the time in this first blog post to introduce myself and tell you why I wanted to start a blog. Over the past couple years, I have become obsessed with looking at blogs every chance I get. From fashion to fitness, I started to follow so many and love them all! Once I really started to notice how often I was looking at them, I asked myself why can’t I do this? My main worry was always what other people might think if I did. I finally came to a realization and decided that I shouldn’t care about what they think! This is what I am passionate about and I’m finally taking the first step to do it for myself. SO HERE GOES NOTHING! I FINALLY DID IT and I couldn’t be happier. 

First off, let me introduce myself and tell you a little more about me. My name is Savanna, which is where the idea for Sweet & Savvy came from. My friends have always called me Savvy as a nickname, so it kind of stuck and made sense to include it in my blog name. I am from North Myrtle Beach, SC and graduated from the University of South Carolina a couple years ago. After living at the beach my whole life and coming back after college, I realized that the job opportunities were pretty limited and I wanted to move somewhere with more potential and possibilities. I had visited my sister many times in Charlotte, NC over the past 4 years, and fell in love with the city, so I finally decided to make the big move with my boyfriend Patrick! I have been in Charlotte for about 3 months now and absolutely LOVE everything about it (besides the fact that most of my family is 3 hours away), but it’s a very quick trip home. I recently got hired to be an associate wedding planner at Love & Honey Weddings here in Charlotte, so I will be wedding planning by day and blogging by night. 

What you can expect to see from me?
I follow hundreds of bloggers and always find myself liking so many of their Instagram pics and clicking on their liketoknow profiles to see where they get their cute clothes from. After doing this a ton, I kept noticing that everything I was seeing was WAY overpriced for my right out of college/starting a new career budget (which I’m sure a lot of you can relate to). So my mission became to share with you how I shop within a reasonable budget and still keep up with the latest fashions without breaking the bank. I learned most of this from my fashionable and deal finding momma!! Every time I, my mom and sister (my best friends) are together there’s a good chance you will find us in a mall or outlets. Trust me, it never fails, but it’s our hobby and our bonding time :). We literally have become trained professionals at finding all kinds of deals & rarely ever pay full price for anything! I cannot wait to share with you our budget friendly finds!

In addition to my fashion posts, you can also expect to see some fitness stuff. Everything from recipes, workouts, and my experience with being an online Beachbody fitness coach. It has really opened my eyes to how much more we can learn about our bodies and the importance of having a healthy diet. My current workout program is the 21 Day Fix mixed with Insanity Max 30, and of course I drink LOTS of Shakeology. So expect to see recipes and how you can make extra money by simply working out and drinking Shakeology every day! It’s simple, but so rewarding and I am excited to share this opportunity with you! 

So that’s a little bit about me and what you can expect to see in my blog. I hope you LOVE it and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram too so you won’t miss my posts!
