How to Collaborate With Brands on Muses

Hey Loves!

Muses is such a beneficial app to both new and established bloggers. Muses provides opportunities for bloggers to collaborate directly with brands. Direct collaboration takes the guesswork out of trying to find a PR Contact because the collaboration representative selects the influencers that reflect their current project.  If you’re new to the blogging world, it’s so easy to become overwhelmed with information, but I’m here to tell you a few tips that help make my blogging days so much easier!


First, think about why you started blogging in the first place. I started blogging because I was always asked by friends and family for style advice. After a while, I started brainstorming ideas about how I could share styles and make a difference in the lives of others. Essentially, I wanted to create a fashion centered content with a message that focused on empowering and inspiring women to be comfortable in their own skin, and that is how SavedClassyandChic was born.


Second, do your research. Before pitching to a brand, research the company to see if the brand fits your niche. If your blog incorporates several niches, be sure the collaboration would provide beneficial content to your readers. Is this collaboration something your readers would be interested in knowing more about? Is this a product that you believe in? It’s important to know that it’s perfectly alright  to politely decline collaborations that don’t fit your brand. Don’t sacrifice the integrity of your brand by backing a company that you don’t believe in their products.

Third, Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If a brand wants you to create content for them, ask as many questions as possible. You want to be able to create the best possible content. It’s important you and the brand are transparent with your expectations.

Fourth, Be yourself. At the end of the day, people will love you for being true to who you are. Your style, your content, the major details of your blog should be a representation of who you are. Don’t worry about what others are doing and your tribe will come!


Last, but certainly not least, always strive to make your content better every day. One of the goals I set for myself as a blogger is to keep moving forward. I look at my content from day one and all of my content looks so different now.  I believe it’s important to continue working hard and developing your craft. Hard work always pays off, loves! Happy Monday!

I am so excited to be reviewing an awesome jewelry subscription box called @rocksbox. If you haven’t tried a @rocksbox subscription.. You are missing out! I recently received my subscription through a fun collaboration with @kristieholmesly! After filling out a thorough survey about my likes and dislikes when it comes to jewelry, I was then able to preview my box before it was mailed. I had the option to switch any pieces I didn’t want to receive. Each box comes with 3 pieces. I received: A tiered necklace, a gold cuff, and rose gold studded earrings. The subscription fee is usually $21.00, but if you use my code,”savedclassyandchicxoxo’ to receive your free month’s subscription. When your jewelry arrives, you simply purchase what you love and return what you don’t. Remember, with my code-your first month is free! It’s awesome to pay it forward and pass along the love for such a wonderful service! Happy Monday, loves! #aprilflowers #styled #rocksbox #subscriptionboxes #classy #chic #aboutalook #instagood #verilymoment #thedulcetlife #everygirl #southernbelle #floraldresses #styledbyanitaford #savedclassyandchic #muses @muses @rocksbox @kristieholmesly #wishlist


I’m currently sitting here relaxing and catching up on episodes of the show, A Different World. How many of you remember this show? I loved how they incorporated real life and humor in every episode. And, let’s face it, Dwayne Wayne’s glasses were everything! Whitley was my fashion icon. Her character was such a classic southern belle! I’m all about creating my own classy, trendy, confident style. When you find colors and trends that you look good in.. Wear them! Why fit in when you were born to stand out! Happy Sunday, loves!

Nordstrom Sale-More versatile pieces that I love! ♥️

Hey Loves!
I’m sure you’ve noticed many bloggers are posting about the Nordstrom sale because it’s a sale that happens in July & a lot of the Fall items are on a pretty good sale. There are a few ways bloggers chose to advertise the sale and all approaches are great. You will see many bloggers who went in the store and purchased items for the sale to host try-on sessions. A lot of my readers have been asking if I purchased items for the sale. I didn’t purchase any items beforehand to host a try-on session. I chose to link items that I already have or want to incorporate in my own fall and winter wardrobe. I may visit the store when public access starts in order to show you all some of the pieces that I linked that I don’t have.

One of the things that I want to be clear about with this sale is that I’m not linking over priced items that I wouldn’t purchase myself. Many of my readers are looking for investment pieces or pieces that can be worn many different ways. I want to deliver those items to you and show you how to style them. Every blogger that is with a blogger organization makes a small commission for items we link and we appreciate those who choose to shop items that we style. So, if you shop with our links, you are supporting us and we appreciate your support. But, please don’t feel pressured to buy anything if you’re not needing any new items. I want to show ladies how to incorporate budget friendly pieces and look like a million bucks! I appreciate those who have been so awesome in supporting my journey and know that I am thankful for all of you! I’m sharing more of my favorites from the Nordstrom sale. I’m linking items that are versatile, classy and chic.
