Serenity at Spa Bleu: The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift

Local Savannah Mom Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, shares a review of Spa Bleu, a local spa, a perfect gift for Mother's Day

Last year for Mother’s Day, I told my sweet husband that what I wanted more than anything, was a day of pampering. He asked me where he should book the appointment and I knew right away that I wanted to go to Spa Blue.

Nestled off the corner of Broughton Street in Savannah, GA is the home of my favorite spa in the city. A short elevator ride to the second floor and I am immediately at peace. A calm, quiet atmosphere just washes my stress away, and I am immediately relaxed, if only for a few hours.

While my husband did get me a package for Mother’s Day last year, a series of unfortunate events, and the ever busy schedule of a Mom, caused me to have to continually reschedule my appointment. I was finally able to visit on my Thanksgiving Break last year, hence the Christmas decor, and it was exactly what I needed to de-stress over my break. The reason I am writing this post now is because I cannot imagine a better gift to give the mom’s in your life than a spa package. Whether they have a day job or stay home, the job of a mother never ends. There is always a dish to be washed, a lunch to be packed, laundry to be folded or a nose to be wiped. We give hugs, wipe tears, kiss boo-boos, and finally drag ourselves to bed well after the rest of the house. We deserve a day of pampering! I am not complaining. I love my life as a Mom, but it is nice to take a step back and focus on myself, if only for a few hours.

Honestly though, a spa package is a good gift for the Mom in your life on any occasion. Whether it is for Christmas, birthday, or just because, I encourage you to spoil the ladies in your life! I can promise that they will thank you!

Now that you have the perfect gift in mind, let’s get back to my spa of choice. I love Spa Bleu because it is a locally owned business that takes cares of all of your pampering needs. They are always offering some sort of special package and that is exactly what my husband took advantage of last Mother’s Day. My package included an hour massage, a facial and a pedicure. I was able to have a few hours to myself to just enjoy my services and finally relax. Besides the service that I mentioned, they also offer manicures, body wraps and scrubs, waxing, spray tanning, hair and makeup. They also have a variety of products available for purchase so you can continue your treatments even after your services have ended.

All of the staff that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting has been super helpful and knowledgeable. The took the time to talk to me, let me know about the services I would be receiving, and address any concerns that I had. I have almost always gone home with samples of products to try and I have always left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

For Mother’s Day this year, Spa Bleu is offering two packages. The first is the Mommy Dearest package. This is a 2 hour treatment package that mom is sure to enjoy. Mommy Dearest will have her choice between a one hour Swedish Relaxation Massage or Organic Skin Specific Facial. This delightful package also includes her choice of Organic Aromatherapy AND a Spa Pedicure. Mom is welcome to spend as long as she likes in the relaxation lounge after her treatments and enjoy some tea or coffee. Includes a fresh flower and spa treats!

The next package is the Mom & Me. I love this package because it is treat that you can enjoy with your Mom.  The base package allows you to relax together and spend some quality time with Mom! Both of you will receive Customized Massages with your choice of Organic Aromatherapy. You will be together the entire time. After your massage, you are welcome to take your time together in the relaxation lounge. It also includes fresh flowers and spa treats! With this package you also have the option of adding Organic Skin Specific Facials, Organic Dead Sea Salt Scrubs and a Light Lunch & Tea Service, for an additional charge.

Spa Bleu is also proud to offer a variety of products from many local businesses. You can shop products from the Savannah Bee Company, Little Barn Apothecary, Morgan Taylor, Mable Rose Candles and Votivo. Any of these options would be a perfect additional gift to add with Mom’s spa treatments!

Whether you are hoping to treat a special Mom in your life, looking for gift ideas for yourself, or just looking to treat yourself to a little pampering, I strongly encourage you to consider Spa Bleu. From the atmosphere, to the people, to the services, I enjoyed every aspect of my visit and will definitely be back. I think I may even ask the Hubs for another day of pampering this Mother’s Day. I could really use a little rest and relaxation and I know that Spa Bleu will take care of all of needs.

The Grove: A New Savannah Staple

Savannah Mom Blogger, Being Mrs. Fowler, visits new Savannah restaurant and nightlife hot spot, The Grove

One of my favorite things about Savannah is all of the yummy, local cuisine. We have a lot of truly amazing restaurants that feature unique dishes, friendly atmospheres, and some great views of the city. Our newest addition, The Grove, is no exception and is already making waves in our little community.

Over my Spring Break I called up my sweet friend Amy Darley of the YouTube channel Team Darley to see if she wanted to join me for lunch. She had been eager to try it out as well so we met on a Thursday for lunch with an open mind and empty bellies. We were immediately blown away by the building. It is striking and modern with crisp white, black pops, and lots of doors and windows. On nice days you can find all of the doors open making the atmosphere even more inviting. One of the first things that you are sure to notice is the tiled floor. It has quickly become one of the most Instagrammed spots in Savannah and it is easy to see why. It pulls you into the building and just encourages you to pull up a seat and stay for a while.

When we visited they were still operating on an abbreviated menu. We quickly made our choices and then sat back to enjoy the ambiance and architecture. We both knew that we wanted to get the Honey Drizzled Fries. It with just the right amount of sweetness mixed with a hint of jalapeno, creating the perfect glaze on a salty and crisp french fry. I could have probably eaten my weight in them! For my meal I got the Savannah Salad. It was light, refreshing and made complete by the tastiest candied pecans. Truly a southern staple. Amy selected The Grove Burger and she said that it was so good. We both cleaned our plates, a sure sign that the food was delicious!

Now that the full menu is complete, I personally cannot wait to head back and taste the Low Country Kale, Forsyth Fried Okra, and the Veggie Burger!

After we finished our meal, we took a tour of the building. The restaurant consists of three stories. The first flour was the main dining room where we ate. There is a large bar area in the main dining room, but there is also a second bar area off the side of the restaurant. This bar area has large doors that are opened up to City Market on nice days. There is also outdoor seating so you can enjoy your meal while taking in the hustle and bustle of City Market. The second floor was a space that was available to use for meeting and parties. It housed large, comfy chairs, a bar area, and a large table with plenty of seating. The final floor was the rooftop bar and it is definitely the shining star of the entire restaurant. Large doors are opened out onto the deck with a perfect view overlooking City Market. There is a bar, comfy couch style seating and high-top tables. This is sure to become one of the busiest spots for Savannah night life and I cannot wait to head up there for Date Night and drinks with my husband in the very near future.

The Grove truly is the perfect addition to our charming little town. It is located in a central location and has something to meet all the needs of its guests. Whether you are dining with your family (I brought Vivi with me!), hanging out with girlfriends, or just enjoying a Date Night, The Grove is the perfect place to enjoy a great meal in the perfect atmosphere. If you are local, be sure to stop in and check it out, and if you are a visiting then you definitely need to add it to your to-do list! Either way, be sure to tell them that Being Mrs. Fowler sent you! I promise that you will not be disappointed!

Impeccably Chic: Hanging out at The Impeccable Pig

IMG_4525

In the heart of downtown Savannah, nestled among the Oak Trees and Spanish Moss, on the ever busy Broughton Street, just down from H&M, you can find one of the cutest little boutiques, The Impeccable Pig. This little company was started by a mother and daughter team out of Texas and now boasts 21 stores throughout the Southeast, as well as a very successful online presence.

LuLu Off the Shoulder Crop Top

I have to be honest. I only started shopping with them in the last year but once I stepped foot inside, I was hooked. It is a small store so it feels homey and welcoming. The staff is cheerful and inviting, and the adorable clothes and great price points keep you coming back for more. After a lot of chatting back and forth with the store manager, Taylor, we were finally able to put together a Blogger’s Night Out to celebrate the fabulous ladies of Savannah. This Thursday, March 29th, from 6-8pm, join us for a night of sweets and sales. Come shop all of the cute, new spring arrivals for 20% off and enjoy a selection of snacks while you shop. The best part is that I will be there all night to help you pick out outfits, put together pieces and just socialize. I am so excited to meet with all of the fabulous ladies of Savannah and I know it is going to be a great night!

To get you excited for the event, I have put together some outfits with some of my favorite pieces from the store. I will link all of the items that I am able to their online boutique so that if you are not local you can still shop all of the amazing items! This is only a very small sampling of what is available in-store and on their website so I strongly encourage you to check them out. Everything is so cute and girlie with great details. The pieces are well made and all of them are at great price points. They have the best accessories, perfect for completing any look!

2017: A Year in Review

Wow! 2017 was definitely one for the books! As I think back on this year, I can’t help but be proud of all that I accomplished! I had so many great opportunities, collaborated with some amazing companies and really built my brand. I grew so much as a person and really learned a lot about who I was and what I wanted for my life. I just wanted to share a few amazing highlights with you!

Goodwill Week

Throughout 2017, I really built a partnership with my local Goodwill. I think that it is so important to shop small. What makes Goodwill even better is that the money goes right back into the community. Not only this, but they provide jobs and resources to the community to help find jobs, teach business skills, and even dress for an interview. While I was able to work with them on many different things, one of my favorite things that I was able to do was dress Renee LaSalle for an entire week. Renee was an anchor at one of our local news stations on the show The Bridge. Every day on air she wore a different outfit picked out by me from Goodwill. I was even an air with her the first day of Goodwill Week to help kick off all of the fun and bring awareness to such an amazing week. We also hosted a Kendra Gives Back party at our local Kendra Scott! Here is a look back on some of the photos from that week:

BeYOUtiful Girls Event with Goody’s 

Another amazing event that I was able to be a part of was the BeYOUtiful Girls Event with my local Goody’s, a part of the Stage Stores family. A few weeks before the event I hosted a round of giveaways to get people excited and raise awareness for the event. On the day of the event, I was able to give a beauty demonstration on my everyday makeup routine and share my personal style with all attendees. The best part about this event was that a portion of all proceeds went to Safe Shelter, a local shelter that helps women who have been victim of domestic violence. I was also able to connect with two other amazing bloggers, City Peach and Awed by Monica, who I have stayed in touch with a now consider a friend. Here are a few photos from that fun event:

Marley Lilly

Another amazing opportunity that I was blessed with this year was the chance to work with Marley Lilly. As a true Southern girl, I firmly believe that everything looks better with a monogram. As a long-time shopper of this adorable brand, I was thrilled when they reached out to me to collaborate. They truly are the sweetest company and allow you to style their products to fit your personality. At Christmas, I was even able to do a Marley Lilly Gift Guide, where I was able to share my favorite items, perfect for gifting! I was even able to give a few of them as gifts! Be sure to check out both blog posts, my gift guide and some fall favorites, that I wrote in collaboration with Marley Lilly and check out a few of my favorite products from our collabs:

Fashion at your PACE

I was beyond excited when a local lighting company, Pace Lighting, reached out to me with an idea to host a shopping event hosted by yours truly. Working together, we were able to get many local Savannah businesses on board to set up pop-up shops and allow people to shop, be pampered and enjoy good food and even better company. At this event we were also able to do some good and a portion of all proceeds were donated to Safe Shelter. I loved seeing all of our hard work come together to support such an amazing cause. It was so nice to not only support local Savannah businesses, but also support and amazing organization that is doing so much good in our community. You can check out some photos from the event by checking out Spotted by Savannah Now. Here are a few of my favorite photos that I was able to snap that night:

Savannah Influencers

I can’t close out 2017 without talking about my love for a little group called Savannah Influencers. If you have been following my blog for a while, you know just how special this group of ladies has become to me. With 2017 being our first full year in existence, we have accomplished more than we ever thought possible. Our main focus this year was Safe Shelter so everything that we did, whether it was individual projects or a group effort, was focused on giving back to this amazing organization. We had community yoga nights and a spin class with The HUB, my event with Pace Lighting and a huge event that just took place called Savannah Influencers Night Out, all to raise money for Safe Shelter. But besides all of the good, what I love most is the love and support we had for one another. When women come together and truly lift one another up, magic happens. I can’t imagine my life without any of these spectacular ladies and I am so excited see what 2018 has in store for us all. Here is a look back on some of my favorite memories of the year:

It is safe to say that 2017 was one for the books. I cannot believe all of the opportunities that I have been given. It is crazy to think that my little blog has become what it is today. None of this would be possible without each and every one of my beautiful readers. You all are my Why and the reason why I keep on pushing through, even if it gets hard. I am so thankful for you taking part in this journey with me. I am so excited for 2018! I know that it is going to be an amazing year and I hope you will continue to tune in for the ride!

Best of Savannah Gift Guide

Christmas truly is the most magical time of the year and here in Savannah, we definitely know how to do it right. From fully decorated river boats adorned with Santa, to completely edible Gingerbread displays, this is one time of the year where Savannah can do no wrong. And amidst the moss covered oaks and a hint of salt air, nestled along our perfect squares and busy streets, you can find some of the cutest shops, perfect for all of your gift giving needs.

I have compiled a list of some of my absolute favorite shops in Savannah. Each one adds its own charm and whimsy to our beautiful city and offers shoppers more than just products. They offer an experience. I encourage you to check out these amazing small businesses and find something perfect to finish off everyone on your list!

Goorin Brothers Hat Shop

Nestled in on the bustling street of Broughton, you can find Goorin Brother’s Hat Shop. I have to admit that this store was a very recent find for me. While shopping at a few of my favorite stores on the same block, I couldn’t help but notice a display of gorgeous hats in the window. Recently, I have come to love wearing hats. I feel like they add something special to any outfit and are truly the perfect fall accessory. They can also put off washing your hair by a day or two and that is amazing for this super busy Mom!

While Goorin is not a local business, they are part of a very small chain of  hat stores that carry hats for men, women and children. They have numerous hats to choose from and they even boast a line that is made right here is the U.S. The inside is quaint and instantly reminds you of an antique shop. I loved being able to try on all of the hats in their large mirrors. The hats come in different widths so you can be sure that you are getting a hat that will fit your head!

This little shop is perfect for that hard to shop for person on your list. With a wide array of hats, you are sure to meet everyone’s needs! Not local to Savannah? No problem! They have a full inventory available on their website so that you can get a perfect hat wherever it is that you may live. I encourage you to check out all of their options and find something that is perfect suited to your style.

Nourish

If you pass outside of Nourish on Broughton Street, you can’t help but notice the amazing smell of lavender, honey, and other amazing scents. What you are smelling is a full line of homemade bath products that are made locally, right here in Savannah. Not only are they locally made but they are also all natural. I think it is so important to know what is in the products that you are using and at Nourish you never have to worry about their ingredients.

In store they have a full line of bath bombs, soaps, shower gels and lotions. With a wide variety of scents you are sure to find something for everyone on your list. While I love the bath bombs, my personal favorite is the line of baby products. I don’t want anything harsh or fake on my little girls delicate skin and I love that products from Nourish are free from chemicals. Besides their locally made products, they also sell a variety of other natural bath accessories so they really have everything to meet all of your essential needs. While they have a few locations to shop locally in Savannah, they also sell all of their products online if you are not local. I encourage you to check them out and order yourself a bath bomb, or six!

fab’rik

Also on Brought Street, you can find one of my absolute favorite clothing stores, fab’rik. While fab’rik is technically not a local small business, they are a small chain of franchise boutiques throughout the south. While there are other locations, the majority of them are sprinkled throughout the South East corner of the United States. Since it is a franchise, I love that you are still supporting a family instead of a large corporation. Fab’rik boasts a variety of clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories, all priced at less than $100. The one exception to this would be their assortment of high quality jeans and Spanx leggings.

At our store, the girls are super nice and very helpful. They almost always have a special and have a large clearance section so that you can always find a good deal. The pieces in store are unique and unlike other items in similar boutiques. I love the fit of the clothes and that I can always look my best without breaking the bank. While the main location is on Broughton Street, they can frequently be found at different events hosting a pop-up boutique, making their items even easier to acquire. Since fab’rik is a chain of stores, they have all of their items available to shop on their website so that you can order a gift for all of the ladies on your list without ever having to leave home.

RMC Boutique

Another adorable clothing boutique that I love to shop is RMC Boutique. Owned and operated by my good friend Rosa, RMC is a true small business that supports people right here in our community. What started as a hobby, became a passion and career for Rosa. She quickly outgrew her original location on Broughton Street and built RMC into the amazing boutique that it is today. Located at the end of Bay Street, RMC is sure to carry something for everyone on your list.

This time of year, my favorite thing that RMC carries is a variety of comfy leggings and cozy oversized sweaters. I also love the I can walk in and find something for any event that I may be attending. I have found birthday outfits, outfits for a night out and even outfits to wear to blogger events. I love that my money is supporting a friend who is putting money right back into our community. Besides the amazing clothing options, RMC is also the only business in Savannah that has a license to sell Kendra Scott, other than the Kendra Scott located on Broughton. This is actually where I was able to buy my very first Kendra Scott piece and start my love for this designer. RMC also has a license to sell Loren Hope, Savannah Bee Company, and does embroidery in house. It really is a one-stop-shop for all of your gift-giving needs. If you are not local, you can shop everything online at their website that is updated daily!

Savannah’s Candy Kitchen

What is a gift guide without something to satisfy your sweet tooth? On the beautiful, historic waterfront of River Street you can find Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. As soon as you approach the store, you are instantly hit with the smells of chocolate, caramel and popcorn. With an expansive store, laying out across four different rooms, you can literally find every candy imaginable. They are also always giving out free samples so you can taste away until you find the exact sweet to satisfy your craving.

Upon entering, you can see employees hard at work scooping homemade ice cream, popping homemade caramel corn, and coating apple and rice krispies with chocolate, caramel and other yummy toppings. Crossing into the next room, you find workers pulling taffy in all flavors with a large assortment of tins to fill with this sweet treat. The next room is my personal favorite because that is where you can find all of the pralines, candy apples, chocolate coated marshmallows, candied nuts, and so much more. You can always get a taste of pralines in this room and they also have a variety of baskets already wrapped up, perfect for gifting. The last room is lined with every bulk candy imaginable. They have huge barrels of sweets and a wall of nostalgia candy that is sure to satisfy everyone.

Not local to Savannah? No problem! You can order many of their yummy treats online! These yummy treats will be the perfect stocking stuffers for everyone on your list!

Cutter’s Point Coffee

For my final recommendation, I have to mention Cutter’s Point Coffee. Located on Skidaway Island on the Southside of Savannah, this is quaint little coffee shop that is perfect for catching up with friends, meeting after church, or studying for a big test. The rich aroma of coffee waifs through the air as you order a drink and get comfy in one of their chairs. They also have a convenient drive-thru window so you never even have to leave your car to get your caffeine.

My personal favorite treat to order from Cutter’s Point is their Chai Lattes. While I originally would drink them with Soy Milk, I have since changed to Almond Milk and the drink is just as yummy. Besides their coffee drinks, comforting teas, and delicious baked treats, they also sell ground coffee and coffee mugs. These items are perfect for office gifts, a hostess treat, or just something to keep at the house for all of your holiday guests. While you won’t be able to order an Iced Caramel Macchiato to be delivered to your house,  wouldn’t that be nice, you can check out their online shop to order ground coffee, K-Cups, mugs and gift cards!

Recently, I had the privilege of being invited to have lunch at the brand new restaurant Moss + Oak Savannah Eatery. Moss + Oak is the newest addition the newly renovated Hyatt Regency in Downtown Savannah, Georgia. The Hyatt was one of the first hotels to plant roots along the gorgeous Savannah River on Bay Street. It has been an institution in Savannah for as long as I can remember so I was excited to see that it was going through major renovations to keep up with the bustling economy.

While all of the guest rooms were renovated a few years ago, the restaurant, entrance, and lobby renovations are the newest, and in my opinion, most exciting projects for the Hyatt. I was eager to see all of the changes and try the cuisine at the highly talked about Moss + Oak. If visiting, you can gain access to the restaurant from Bay Street or from River Street. We entered from the main entrance on Bay Street.

Upon arriving, I was greeted by the friendliest host and wait staff. Everyone was eager to help me out and make sure that all of my needs were met. We quickly got a seat and were told about the specials. Accompanying me on my visit was my good friends Mary Elaine of Its Mary Elaine and Carrie of Magnolia Blossom Photography. We placed our drink and food orders and then went outside to check out patio. Our good friend Julia of Glitter and Juls was also enjoying the restaurant so she was able to join us outside to enjoy the view.

The patio boasts gorgeous views of the Savannah River with comfy lounge seating and fire pits. While sitting outside we had the privilege to meet and chat with head chef, James Morin. He was so nice and incredibly humble. With a little prying, we were able to get him to open up about the work that he has done for the restaurant. Having been on board from the beginning, he had a hand in so many details of Moss + Oak and it is evident when you talk to him. If you are lucky enough to get the chance to talk to him, you can see his eyes light up when he talks about his food. It is clear that he is passionate about his work. He created a menu that brings together so many different flavors to create the perfect eating experience. The sight of the food mixed with the smell and taste truly satiates all of your senses. When you combine that with the atmosphere of the restaurant, you get a truly unique dining experience.

We started our meal with the She Crab Soup and Fried Green Tomatoes.  Mary Elaine ordered the soup and she said it was super creamy with an amazing flavor. It is one of the most ordered things on the menu and she said it was easy to see why. We shared the Fried Green Tomatoes and I highly recommend that you order them when you visit. Hands down, these were the best Fried Green Tomatoes that I have ever eaten. So many amazing flavors in one dish. For our main course, Mary Elaine and Carrie both got the Burger with Sweet Potato Tots and I got Chicken and Waffles. My portion was very generous and was more than enough food. My meal featured flavors that I have never had in a Chicken and Waffles, making each bite even more enjoyable. I ate way more food than I care to admit because it was just that good. I literally could not stop eating. Mary Elaine and Carrie both enjoyed their burgers and tots and cleaned their plates!

I highly recommend Moss + Oak if you are local to Savannah or if you are visiting the area. One of the great things that Moss + Oak is currently offering is their Lunch Like a Local campaign. If you visit anytime during the lunch hour until September 30th, 2017 and show a valid Georgia ID they will give you 20% off your entree! As long as your ID is from the state of Georgia you will be able to receive the discount on your visit. This is truly an amazing deal for an even more amazing restaurant. I encourage you to check them out and take advantage of this amazing deal. I can assure you that you will be back again and again to enjoy the exquisite cuisine. They really do have something for everyone!unnamed
