Have You Tried These? You should.

Seriously.

These elastic hair ties are awesome. They won’t damage or break your hair, they won’t leave that horrible crease that just screams “ponytail!” They are basically magic.

Okay, maybe not magic. Exactly. But they are as close as a hair tie can get.

These things are quite popular lately. You can find them at your local gym, your yoga studio, even at trendy retail stores. Thing is, as awesome as they are, they can be really expensive. I’m not kidding. One particularly popular retail chain is selling them for over $2 a piece! A piece!

If you’re like me, you probably consider that to be a little ridiculous. I mean, they are really cute and everything, but they are hair ties after all. How many of these do you lose on a regular basis? Mine, no matter how hard I try to keep them hidden, inevitably become cat toys. So spending over $2 for one seems a little excessive to me.

That said, I’m excited to say that I am now offering these fantastic little accessories in my Etsy shop

Image

Here, you can purchase the ties for much lower prices. Don’t spend two bucks at the gym just because you forgot your boring old elastic band at home. Plan ahead! In my shop, you can currently purchase the ties in various color themes and three different quantities:

6 for $5.00, 13 for $10.00, and 27 for $20.00

Less than a dollar each. Even better? The more you buy, the cheaper they are!

So head on over and get some for yourself!

Happy Shopping!

Be Your Own Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I understand some of you out there may not be a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. Maybe you’re spending the day alone, or you’re on a diet and can’t stand to be around all the sugar and sweets, or maybe you simply hate the color pink. Well, I’m not going to gasp and tell you you’re crazy or chase you around like an overly cheery Cupid with a bow and arrow. However, I will say this one thing…

You’re looking at it all wrong.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers. It isn’t all about pink hearts and candy necklaces. Think of it more as a mini-vacation from reality. This is how I prefer to think of most holidays. Like Halloween. And St. Patrick’s Day. And my birthday. And most Fridays…

So even if you’re stuck at work all day, try to remember that you are also on your mini-vacation. Should you eat that extra piece of chocolate? Yeah! It’s Valentine’s Day! Should you buy that gorgeous purse you’ve had your eye on since Christmas? Why not? It’s Valentines Day! Should you really order another pink martini? Or three? Of course!

It’s Valentine’s Day!

So even if you think you’re not spending the day with anyone special, you are! You’re spending the day with you! And don’t you deserve to be spoiled this Valentine’s Day? I think so. Be your own Valentine.

That said, I hope you all have a wonderful day. Smile. Embrace the pink hearts and candy necklaces. And don’t count your calories. Seriously.

Savannah Renée

My Scarf Obsession

I love scarves.

And though I love them, I don’t believe I wear them quite often enough. My coworker, Courtney, wears these beautiful scarves nearly every day and it has awaken me to the idea that I have been neglecting mine.

Today I am wearing one given to me for Christmas by my fiancé, Alec. It is a sheer, sequin embellished scarf from Target (they have a pretty amazing selection of fashionable scarves there year-round… I love Target). I adore this scarf. Also, Alec is a great listener because I’m pretty sure I swooned over this scarf for weeks before Christmas, refusing to buy it for myself as I was adhering to my strict “no gifts for self after Thanksgiving” rule. So, as you can imagine, Christmas morning I was a happy girl.

You know another great place to find some lovely scarves? Etsy. Granted, Etsy is a great place to find pretty much anything vintage or handmade these days. I could, and have, spent many hours at a time on Etsy, just wandering around from shop to shop. In recent years, I have done a large amount of my Christmas shopping on the site as well. So easy.

Anyway, I was wandering around the shops this morning and added a few pretty things to my favorites list:


Here’s a lovely, ruffly number. It is from SenasShop and has the fantastic price of only $19.90.

Love it.


This hand painted beauty is from TeresaMare… in Greece! Isn’t it stunning?


I am in love with this color. Actually, it would almost perfectly match the walls in our living room.

This one is from JANNYSGIRL.


This one is actually text from Les Mis! Amazing, right? There are lots of similarly fantastic items in the storiarts shop.

And finally, I want this one so bad. What is it about Chevrons that does this to me?

This one is from MegansMenagerie.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed checking out these great scarves! Are you a scarf person? Describe your favorite one to me or share a link in the comments to your current obsession!

On a side note, I may not sell scarves, but I have other pretty items to adorn your neck! Check them out in my shop on Etsy and use the coupon code BLOG5 for 5% your purchase!

Featured Items from My Favorites Page!

I Just Couldn’t Wait…

So this morning I said to check back soon for a special feature post! Well, I was looking around on my Favorites page and decided I just couldn’t wait! My Favorites page on Etsy is full of great items and sellers and there were a few (or more) that I am excited to share with you!

First off, you have to check out the awesome rings from Brilynn! Brilynn is a husband and wife team – Brian and Lynn – that sells jewelry made with intricate glass beads. The beauty of these pieces just blows me away! Perhaps even more impressive is that Lynn makes these incredible glass beads herself, melting glass into flowers with a torch! This lovely pink and yellow ring is my personal favorite: il_430xN.75410748

Now, you may think I am slightly bias since Susan, the creative genius behind OhHiLucy, is my mother… but there is no denying that the critters in her shop are a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e! In this shop you can find cute little stuffies, intricately needle felted creations, bright birdy pins, and my favorite… awesome, bamboo stuffed, ecofelt keychains! This cute little owl is my (current) favorite!

Speaking of needle felted awesomeness… if you love llamas, you are going to adore tcllamas on Etsy! Donna of Twin Creek Llamas creates a variety of unique llama jewelry as well as some great needle felted llamas made with wool from her own llamas!!! How cool is that?! I really have nothing else to say about this great shop, as Lenny the Lazy Llama really speaks for himself:

I am a bit of a purse addict and when I found the Davie and Chiyo Etsy shop, I fell in love! If you are looking for a beautiful summer clutch to ad to your wardrobe, this is the place to come. The creators of this fabulous shop, Himi and Fumi, use elegant, often one-of-a-kind fabrics to produce some of the most beautiful purses I have ever seen. I have already favorited quite a few of these creations, but this one with a gorgeaous coral bow really stands out!

il_430xN.74601705Well, I hope you enjoy looking through these wonderful Etsy shops! Maybe you’ll find something you just have to have! I have so many favorites, you’ll probably be seeing more of them on here soon! Until then, happy shopping!

Other Recent Work

A Couple Custom Pieces

The other things I have been working on recently are custom pieces. I recently completed another custom eyeglass chain which will go up today as my first Savannah Renée Etsy shop custom listing! Here is a preview of the item!

Custom Listing

Another project I completed recently was actually one for myself! You know, I have to keep something every once in awhile! Actually, this item I made for myself as a sort-of test item. There isn’t anything like this in the Savannah Renée Etsy shop yet, but there should be soon! Introducing my first cocktail ring!

Cocktail Ring

This ring is extra large and extra shiny! Made with an adjustable silver plated ring base and 6mm Swarovski Crystals. I will be keeping this particular ring for myself, but you should expect to see rings in this same style in my shop soon!

Comments, as always, are more than welcome!

Happy Shopping!

Savannah Renée
