Budget Savvy Diva

So if you a fan of Budget Savvy Diva on Facebook ( and if you are not why not join in on the fun ๐Ÿ™‚ ) you would of know that I had some pretty BIG news to tell y’all. Everyone should already know that I grew up on everything Disney so it surprised no one when I decided to work there while I was in college. It was some of the best years of my life though I LOVE running Budget Savvy Diva there will always be a part of me that wishes I still worked there. Months ago I was able to connect with Disney once again by being able to go to screening of films like African Cats and more recently going to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides plus being able to get all the information on up coming productions ๐Ÿ™‚

So you can understand how excited when I refreshed my email and saw the words – “Disney and Dreamworks Invite You…” Mr. Savvy can attest to how excited I got – and of course I was in the middle of cooking dinner ( sorry about burning the chicken again ๐Ÿ™ ).

So here is what I am invited to – in the middle of next month a couple of weeks after I move to Phoenix, AZย  – I will be boarding a airplane and flying back to Los Angeles and staying at a hotel in the heart of Hollywood a mere 4 minutes to my home I am living at now. I am part of 20 bloggers who were selected to get the most exclusive sneak peek to all the new Disney and Dreamworks projects over the course of 4 days.Beyond the things I get to do below I will get exclusive access to Disney headquartersย  – and much much more ๐Ÿ™‚

I will be heading to a fun filled press day for Winnie the Pooh

I LOVE Winnie the Pooh ๐Ÿ™‚ Cannot wait to tell y’all about it !

I will be one of the first to see Dreamworks – The Help

And the most exciting part is

Not only do I get to attend a press junket for Cars 2 – with John Lasseter, Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Emily Mortimer, etc.

I will also be attending the red carpet premier for Cars 2 and perhaps the after party as wellย  !!! Time to go clothes shopping!!


So this is the part where YOU my reader can get involved.

Budget Savvy Diva is looking for questions to ask the stars of Cars 2 – Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Emily Mortimer. Also questions to ask John Lasseter – if you have any please email them at [email protected] – there will be voting later on.


Also help DRESS the Budget Savvy Diva

I am in need for some fashion advice – I am planning on wearing dresses – especially to the red carpet premier so any fashion tips are appreciated. I am more of a hourglass figure but short 5’2 ๐Ÿ™‚

PLUS Budget Savvy Diva has paired up with Kas from Southern Bella’s Ways To Save to do Disney themed giveaways while we are on the trip

Here is a little sneak peek on what prizes you can win ๐Ÿ™‚

Disclaimer: I received an all expense paid trip from Disney but the thoughts and reviews are my own ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congratulations! What a testament to all the hard work you have put in to Budget Savvy Diva. You deserve it and I hope you have a blast. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

    Ya know.. the “stars” borrow gowns and jewelry for events all the time. Given that you know the area, you should contact a local boutique/small designer shop and explain what you are doing. You are invited to the red carpet, you are one of only 20 bloggers invited, you will be writing about the event and the clothes and that you have 10K+ followers- yada yada yada. They may bite on the hook and dress you up! alternatively (for red carpet night) google formal gown rental and you’ll find sites that rent for the night the same way as guys rent a tuxedo!

  • Shana

    You deserve it! You speak very highly of Disney all the time, they know where their “bread is buttered!” Congratulations and Enjoy!!!

  • Monica Lightfoot

    That is wonderful!! So excited for you! As much as you do for everyone on here, you deserve a trip!

  • Tonja

    Sooooo, happy for you!! ;-)…. So, have you gotten them to let your BSD partner, Mr. Savvy go yet?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Amanda

    FANTASTIC!!! I use to work for Disney too (in my College Years, and some after before I moved back to my hometown) I think of it often and would LOVE to go back. How did you get reconnected – was it through the connections that you made prior or a reunion site or something like that???

    BTW – THIS weekend my old roomates from Vista Way (in Florida) are visiting!! It’s been 8 years since we had been at Disney together!!!

    Congrats, and I can’t wait to read your blogs about your trip!

  • susan

    How wonderful for you!! How in the world did you mange to do this? Can’t wait to read your reviews. Those look like some great movies to see with the kids. Have a blast!

  • Cathy

    First of all congrats! Second of all you are so beautiful you will look great in anything. So glad you were chosen for this. I have only followed you for a short time, but have really enjoyed your blog. I can’t wait to read your reviews my two granddaughters love Disney Movies and shows.

  • Heather Wampler Bryant

    Do either of you have any room in your luggage, I want to go too!! Congrats!! I want to know why Mater is such a flirt! As for John Lassitar pick his brain about how he came to make these wonderful movies!

  • Brittani Q

    Congrats! As far as dress… since you are shorter, I wouldn’t suggest anything below the knee, and wear some stiletto like heels (this will help you look taller). Plus, for your picture above, I would suggest a rich color (ruby red, emerald green, royal blue or purple, or even black) If you wear your hair up, keep the dress simple with jewlery that packs a punch. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ˜€

  • AJ

    AWESOME!!! Whatever you wear, you’ll look good. You always seem to look good…. at least in all your photos. Keep it simple. Don’t over do it. People can have the tendency to over do when excited. Maybe hair up or at least half up and curl rest. Can’t wait to see pics of the wonderful trip and adventure!

  • Laura Muzughi

    That is so deserved, it really couldn’t happen to a nicer person:) Hard working nicer person at that!

  • Ellen Hurteau

    That is wonderful, I have a friend who also always wanted to work at Disney………He has now been there over 20 years and is in management in Disney World……..He loves it and would never leave.

    Hello! I am a new follower on Facebook! I just recently went to a local high end salon (Z Salon in Louisville, KY) for a “Signature Look” Appointment. This was a consultation on hair, makeup, clothing, shoes, accessories – head to toe. I wanted to look more professional as a business owner.

    The book that they gave me that told me the “rules” of dressing for my body type was Stacy & Clinton (From TLC’S “What Not To Wear”) called Dress Your Best. This tells you what will flatter your body type best. I am 5’2″ with an hourglass figure as well and everything in my closet was prints & v-necks which for my body type (larger on top than on bottom) is no good. I used the rules I learned from the stylist & book and figured out what would look best on me. I highly recommend the book!

    At our height, we should be sure that any dress or skirt is at least 1″ above the knee and should wear pointy or square toe shoes if they are closed toe. Open toe it doesn’t matter. Also, to elongate the leg, be sure your shoes do not have a horizontal strap across them (they need to be a v or crisscross strap across foot if it has straps.

    Another excellent source for fashion is you can create an account and ask fellow “fashionistas” what to wear to any kind of event. Tell them where you are going, your body type & they will give you TONS of suggestions & photos! They will not know your “fashion rules” according to the book unless they are actual stylists so you can combine their suggestions with rules from the book to find the perfect look!

    I found a great semi-formal Calvin Klein dress at Macy’s for a charity event. Normally I just run to Dress Barn and grab what I think is cute but once I learned my fashion rules, I tried on 31 dresses before I made a choice. SO, it may be overwhelming but it’s SO worth it!!

    Congrats & good luck!

  • becci grant

    WOW! What an Awesome God we have! He has been so good to you!! Congrads! on everything that has came your way!! I wish you only the best on your new adventure!

  • dayna campbell

    That is really cool wow what an honor that is !! Good luck and tell your hubby there plenty of chicken in the world maybe, when you get back you can cook a marvulous dinner !!

  • Lisa

    As another fan of Pooh who is trying to live the “tao of Pooh’, I’m extremely excited for you and a bit jealous of you, but love you none the less…. Congrats! I think you need to look for a wrap dress in a Jewel tone like sapphire blue or a deep amethyst. Similar to what Kate Middleton wore when her engagement to Prince William was announced.

    I hope you have a wonderful time!

  • Angela Cruthirds

    We’re not worthy! Your better get a nice dress – let’s see if you can get a sample from a famous designer to show-off on the red carpet. Doesn’t that sound like the most budget savvy Idea EVER? It couldn’t have happened to a more worthy person – I hope you have the time of your life!
