THE ORIGINAL SAVVY SASSY MOM
Andrea Fellman is originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, but moved to Los Angeles to attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. After graduating from FIDM, working on a few small independent films and an internship with SONY Pictures, she fell in love, got married and her dream of becoming a stylist while dressing the stars soon turned into dressing two toddlers. Prior to having kids, she also managed a high-end kids boutique in Santa Monica where she immersed herself in the kid industry and help celebrities shop for their kids. Then after becoming a stay at home mom, she craved a creative outlet. Her husband, the tech-savvy one, encouraged her to start a blog.
Andrea wanted to take her knowledge of the children’s industry and share it online with other moms looking for great products and stylish clothing for their children, which was just the beginning of Savvy Sassy Moms. She also wanted the site to help moms not forget who they are in the midst of chaos and not lose their own personal style to motherhood. Andrea always knew other moms should contribute to the blog, which is why Savvy Sassy Moms is plural… it was never supposed to only be about her, but a variety of moms. The website now has 8 contributors and has since grown into a premier online destination for all things fashionable and fun for moms, babies and kids.
Andrea and her family moved from Los Angeles to Costa Rica in 2013 to pursue a dream of living abroad. You can keep up with their journey and how she juggles it all over at WanderLustLiving.com. They were featured on the HGTV hit show House Hunters International this past summer. She is also co-hosting the ROAR Retreat this September, a social media retreat for professional bloggers.
Andrea believes that you can have everything you want in life, if you’re willing to work for it.
