Five Days of Fabulous: OUR FINAL DAY!!!

It’s the FIFTH and final day of Five Days of Fabulous!

As excited as I am about today, I’m also a little bummed too…because hello?  It’s over!  Sheaffer and I LOVE planning this week for our readers and hate to see it go.    If you don’t read Sheaffer’s blog on the regular, let me tell you a little about my sweet friend…

Here we are in Mexico with our other besties.  We clean up nice, but we also love…

…to hang out in our pajamas too 🙂 .

This is Sheaffer and her sweet family…

I know what you’re thinking…PUPPIES!!!!!  Yes!  They even have their own Instagram account.  Aren’t they precious?!

Sheaffer has been one of my besties for almost 10 years now.  She is one of my FAVORITE people in the whole world.  If you don’t know her, you should hop over to her blog at Sheaffer Told Me To and see what she’s all about!  Sheaffer started her blog back in 2012 after some encouragement from me and our other girlfriends, and we’re so glad she did!  She highlights the latest trends (that work for us regular ladies!), she shares items that she loves (she calls the ones that she loves the most MUST HAVES), and she is the best at letting us all know a good sale. Whether you love to shop, hate to shop, or just don’t have enough time to shop…..Sheaffer will have you looking cute when you walk out the door, and she will make it SO easy.  And she’s not one of those bloggers that wears super expensive clothes or never wears the same thing twice!  She will show you TONS of different ways to wear affordable pieces over and over again.  And if you are a Bachelor fan she also does Bachelor Recaps that will have you ROLLING.  She started doing the recaps after Sean’s season, and she never stopped!  THEY ARE HILARIOUS!
Sheaffer is married to her high school sweetheart Chris, has a 9 year old son named Carter, and this year they added 2 Golden Retriever puppies to the mix!  You can even follow Buddy and Charlie on their cute instagram account at @ourgoldenpups!  Here is a pic of us together just days after we had our babies…
…Kensington and Carter are only five days a part 🙂 .
So, if you’re not a regular reader, tune in to her every day on her blog, plus find her here too…
Follow her on Instagram HERE.
Follow her on Facebook HERE.
Follow her on Pinterest HERE.

Okay, let’s recap our week…

On Day TWO, we gave away…a pair of our favorite pajamas and the BEST slippers to one lucky winner and her two friends.

On Day THREE, we gave away…our favorite blardigans and Ugg boots to one lucky winner and her two friends.

Now, today, I have a BIG post!  First, we’re giving away our last prize (and it’s good!!) and then, it’s part two of my Nordstrom holiday beauty partnership, and I’m posting hair tutorials.  (Insert me being very nervous about this!! Hahahaha!)  First up, today’s prize.



…here you go…

You will win a $1000 NORDSTROM gift card for yourself and a second one to gift!!!!

One winner, $2000 in  Nordstrom gift cards!!

Friends, someone is going to win this!!!  And the only way to make it you is to enter the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post!!  You also need to tell your friend to enter too!!  You girls could be the big winners on Monday!!!  Sheaffer and I are sponsoring this giveaway because we truly LOVE you guys, and we want to share what we love with the readers we love!!  You make it so much fun for us to sponsor posts like this!!!  GOOD LUCK, FRIENDS!!

Whew!  How do I top that?  I can’t.  No way 🙂 .  I am going to step out of my comfort zone a bit and do something a little different…hair tutorials 🙂 .  When Nordstrom asked me to partner with them this month on a beauty post, I immediately thought about the requests I receive for me to do a hair tutorial.  I have never done one before for the following reasons:

1. I feel silly pretending like I’m any sort of authority on hair.

2. I have no idea how to make a video.

3. I’m 99.9% sure I will look dumb.

4. I have no idea how to upload a video onto my blog.

5. Who cares about my hair?

That being said, when I mentioned my idea to Sheaffer, she totally encouraged me to do it.  Her exact words were like “make a homemade video, who cares?” …so, that’s what I’ve done.  I’ve made several.  I did one about how I sleep in my “wet bun” (I’ve blogged about this for years, but now, you can finally see me do it…and seriously, forgive the way I look…I am literally about to go to bed in this video), I made one about how I style my hair the next morning after I wake up from my wet bun, I made a video about why I love my T3 curling wand so much and then another one about the way I throw my hair up.

They are all so lame and homemade…please understand that I know this 😉 .

If I talk about a product in the video, I’ll put it in a little graphic/widget/thing below the video so that it’s easy for you to find (just use the arrows to scroll and you’ll see every product/outfit that’s in the video and you can click on the image).

All of these products came straight from my cabinet…I didn’t order a single one for the making of these videos, and they all can be found at Nordstrom, because I really do love going there and talking to the stylists/makeup artists/brow bar consultants/skincare consultants/fragrance experts and more.  These people in store KNOW WHAT THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT and make it so easy to figure out which products I need and how to apply them correctly.  They are the beauty experts, and if you have any questions, you should head there for their expertise!

Alright, here we go…

VIDEO #1: The Wet Bun

VIDEO #2: Why I love my T3

VIDEO #3: The morning after/how I style

VIDEO #4: My lazy hair

Here are two still shots of my hair after I was done…

As Ashby would say, “I have my curlies”. 🙂

There you go… 🙂 .  You can find my dress HERE.

For those of you who want more info, in the videos, I referenced these posts…

My favorite makeup is HERE.

P.M. Routine

My nighttime skincare routine is HERE.

The Laura Mercier lip gloss in Golden Peach HERE.

And then just for grins, here are a few other key brands I love from Nordstrom’s beauty department from trusted brands like Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Lancome, La Mer and Jo Malone

I’m also hooked on this polish in Beauty Marked this holiday season because not only is it the perfect red, but it stays on so much longer than my other polishes do…

Isn’t it pretty?  This was me yesterday…

red polish and turtleneck for the win!  Then, I added a jacket

…and hit the road (and by road, I mean the drive to preschool 😉 ). My jacket comes in 7 different colors.  I’m having a moment with turtlenecks these days.  I’ve already shown you the one I’m wearing in these above pics…

And then, I also bought it in their green berry color too…

…plus, I showed you this one earlier this week…

I’m in love with the turtleneck 🙂 .

Okay, the winner of today’s HUGE prize (a $1000 Nordstrom gift card for you and another one to gift!) is going to be announced on Monday!!  I will also be talking about some of my favorite gift ideas for the men in your life next week too (in case you need a few!) as well as my favorite accessories from Nordstrom, so stay tuned!  I’m so happy they partnered with me today on beauty!  If you’re looking for me as you enter the giveaway today, find me…

    I think your hair looks great! 🙂 Much better than mine, at least – mine is always a mess because I don’t bother styling it, haha!

  • Jennifer Hampton December 1, 2017 at 5:02 am

    I love love love that you did videos!!!!! I have been saying for years I wish you did some vlogs! Off to go make my tired mom hair not look so tired!

  • Laura December 1, 2017 at 5:15 am

    The videos were great and you should do them more often!! I love the shine spray- great idea for clean or second day hair. 🤞🏻 For the giveaway! 😊

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams December 1, 2017 at 5:23 am

    Ah love the videos Shay! I like how simple you keep your hair routine. I loved all the pics of you and Sheaffer this week too! Have a great weekend!
    Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams

  • Myka December 1, 2017 at 5:27 am

    OMG Shay ,I love the videos! You should definitely consider doing more videos! $1000 is just what I need right now, awesome giveaway!

  • Sheaffer Sims December 1, 2017 at 5:32 am

    Awww! Thank you so much for the sweet introduction! So thankful to be friends, and so grateful to have you in my life!!!! Oh, and I’m OBSESSED with the videos.

  • Elspeth Mizner December 1, 2017 at 5:34 am

    What a great giveaway! Love the videos! You should do them more often!

  • Melissa December 1, 2017 at 5:38 am

    Thank you for posting the videos/tutorials. They are great and you did awesome. A couple of questions, what brand is your pony tail holder and what size did you get in the jacket? Thanks.

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 6:01 am

      I bought the jacket in xsmall and I use regular old goodie rubber bands!

  • Cher Rezac December 1, 2017 at 5:43 am

    So much fun!!

  • Narci Dreffs December 1, 2017 at 5:44 am

    Oh, my goodness!! I LOVE thise videos, friend!! You are completely precious in them! And, what a fun giveaway!! Happy Friday!!

  • Holly Breton @ Pink Lady December 1, 2017 at 5:46 am

    So fun! Sad it is the last day but have enjoyed all of your great pics together!

  • Sarah Shaneyfelt December 1, 2017 at 5:54 am

    I love the videos you did! Even though you give step by step directions, sometimes it’s hard to visualize so the videos helped tremendously! Happy Friday!

  • polly peterson December 1, 2017 at 5:55 am

    Thanks for the hair videos! I am always looking for ways to make my hair look super cute! Question–do you find that the all the different hair fragrances smell good together? I know individually they smell great, but I find if I use more than one “fragranced” product, sometimes the smells together are less than appealing–or even kinda sickening! Maybe I am using the wrong stuff!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 6:01 am

      I think they all compliment each other quite nicely!

  • Jacklyn December 1, 2017 at 6:07 am

    LOVE the hair tutorials and don’t think you need to worry about fancier videos at all! The content is great and so helpful to see how you are using all the products. I’ve always stayed away from the moroccan oil, worried it would make my hair feel oily, but seeing how you use it daily I’m going to give it a try!

  • Megan December 1, 2017 at 6:10 am

    Great job on the videos! I’m currently trying to break up with my wash-every-day hair routine and embrace 2nd day hair.

  • Margie December 1, 2017 at 6:32 am

    Shay!! I absolutely LOVE your videos!! So so fun to watch you in action! Thank you for sharing your tips 💕

  • Nicole December 1, 2017 at 6:34 am

    Which turtleneck is your fave?? If you could only get one? 😉

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 6:46 am

      Oh gosh! That’s so hard!!! I think I would say the gray!

  • sydnee December 1, 2017 at 6:35 am

    Love the turtleneck sweaters! All the colors are so tempting!

  • Mandy December 1, 2017 at 6:35 am

    Love the videos, you did a great job! You should make them more often, seriously! And thank you for introducing Schaeffer to us, you are a sweet sweet friend Shay!

  • Erika Slaughter December 1, 2017 at 6:38 am

    You did such a good job on the videos!! I’m impressed! And whoa!!! Going out with a BANG on Friday!!

    • Candice December 4, 2017 at 12:55 am

      Hey erika! Where is your outfit from in the pic from Mexico?? Love it!

  • Nikki December 1, 2017 at 6:40 am

    so your hair is (with no product and no styling) straight? I ask cause mine is, and I had no idea yours was, so I’m wondering if this will work for me.

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 6:46 am

      It might work for you???

  • Tammy December 1, 2017 at 6:45 am

    Wonderful videos !!! Great job ! Love love this amazing giveaway !

  • Rechelle December 1, 2017 at 6:56 am

    LOVE the videos! You did an AMAZING job and they were so helpful, thanks Shay! It’s been such a fun week reading along with you ladies 🙂

  • Jillian December 1, 2017 at 7:08 am

    Ah, those videos were great! I also love how short and simple they were, I feel like some hair tutorials are forever long and require handstands and cartwheels just to get your hair to curl. Haha your tutorials are much more realistic, and easy for someone like me who has trouble getting out of bed, but wants to look nice for work. I do have a question, on the nights you do not wash your hair do you still sleep with in a bun? Or how do you do it so you don’t wake up with frizzy hair? I guess that is something the leave in conditioner helps with. Thanks! Also, thank you for that awesome giveaway!

  • Kelly Westbrook December 1, 2017 at 7:18 am

    Love your blog! You are so beautiful!! Thanks for doing the giveaway days, it’s so nice!! Just wanted to recommend Too Faced- Better than Sex mascara. I like it a little more than the Haute and Naughty. Not sure if you can get it at Nordstrom’s or not, but I do get it at Ulta.

  • Maura December 1, 2017 at 7:23 am

    Omg the videos are awesome !! Although, if I “bunned” my shot at night, it would FOR SURE not look as good as yours 😂 Have you tried the new no mark hair elastic craze? I’m obsessed!

    • Melissa December 1, 2017 at 12:50 pm

      I’m obsessed, too! Thank God someone invented those as I couldn’t rock a scrunchie or anything at night. Shay’s bf, Ericka, posted about the traceless hair rings so I bet she has seen them. If I slept with a regular ponytail holder, I would have the biggest crease (ugly line) in my hair.

  • Sheila Brewer December 1, 2017 at 7:26 am

    What a true inspiration you are in helping other women…sales, style, recipes, Family.

  • Joyce December 1, 2017 at 7:27 am

    Great job on the videos! Thanks for sharing! Love all your tips!

  • Kelly Sites December 1, 2017 at 7:35 am

    You’ve opened a can of worms…now we are all going to need more videos. I LOVED the progressive hair video. That was super creative and well done (and fun). How about a video closet tour. I don’t think you have shown us your closet, since you re-did it? Thanks for a great week of prizes.

  • Whitney Pegram December 1, 2017 at 7:48 am

    I am so glad you finally did a hair tutorial!! Beautiful, girl! Happy Friday!

  • Kaley December 1, 2017 at 7:48 am

    i looove those videos, they’re so helpful!

  • Vivian G December 1, 2017 at 7:53 am

    I’ve left my hair in a bun overnight before and the next morning it has this funky smell. I do have a lot of hair. Has this happen to you?

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 8:05 am

      This has not happened to me.

  • Elizabeth December 1, 2017 at 8:00 am

    Loved your videos. Now I want to try your hair routine. I have very straight hair. Would love volume. Thank you so much.

  • Laura December 1, 2017 at 8:02 am

    Best Post EVER!!! I love seeing what other people use for products. Now I have to go shopping 🙂

  • Angelique December 1, 2017 at 8:03 am

    This week has been fabulous! Thank you for the giveaways that are out of this world and for all of your beauty tips. 🙂

  • Alexis deZayas December 1, 2017 at 8:05 am

    What a fun giveaway!! I have been dying to know how you do your cute pony so I can’t wait to watch those videos! Thanks for sharing!

  • Jessie December 1, 2017 at 8:06 am

    Great job in your videos! They were really informative and quick! They’re the perfect combo. You have great hair! Happy December, Shay!

  • Ashlee December 1, 2017 at 8:16 am

    I loved watching your videos! I feel like I got to know you more and also felt like I could hopefully figure out how to do my hair the same way.

    Question? When reposting your image for the contest, do I just screenshot a still image from your post and then post it to my account? Also, does it matter if I have a private account? Will you still see that I tagged both of you?

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 9:50 am

      Yes! That’s all okay!!

  • Raquel Whatley December 1, 2017 at 8:18 am

    This was so much fun! Thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone. Love that you share your beauty tips with us like we are your girlfriends. You’re the bomb Shay! God bless..

  • Amanda Elmendorf December 1, 2017 at 8:34 am

    Love the hair videos!!! You should totally do more 🙂 Also, I have done all of the requirements to enter but for some reason every time I try to re-pin on Pinterest it says “Whoops! We couldn’t find that page. How about these instead?”

  • Angie December 1, 2017 at 8:38 am

    You should totally do tutorials more often 😉 Happy Friday, Shay! ♥

  • Anna December 1, 2017 at 8:42 am

    Love the videos! Question I have always wondered about gel polish: do you also apply a gel base coat or top coat? Or would just a regular base/top coat work? Thanks and Happy December!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 9:50 am

      I do a base coat, two coats of gel polish and a top coat. 🙂

  • Kaelyn December 1, 2017 at 8:46 am

    This week has been so much fun! Love love love the hair tutorials! I’ve always wondered how you get those beachy waves. Thanks Shay!

  • Melanie Smith December 1, 2017 at 8:59 am

    Love the hair video! I have shorter naturally curly hair! May try the wand to help control it! Thank you for letting us into to your family & home life every day. You have the sweetest kids! Found you thru Sean & his “Bachelor” days!
    Awesome giveaways this week!! 🎄❤️

  • Sue K. December 1, 2017 at 9:03 am

    These videos are to die for! Thanks for sharing. I am crossing my fingers that you’ll do more. Take that little list up above and cross out numbers 1-5. You’ve got NOTHING to worry about. 🙂

  • Courtney December 1, 2017 at 9:07 am

    LOVE the videos! Thank you so much for providing the products and how you use them, super helpful! And what an awesome giveaway. 🙂

  • Jordan G December 1, 2017 at 9:10 am

    Do you have a link for the booties you’re wearing with the turtle neck and suede jacket?! They look so cute!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 9:50 am

      They’re Rag & Bone from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale!

  • Annie Fasone December 1, 2017 at 9:21 am

  • Jaclyn December 1, 2017 at 9:25 am

    Thanks for doing a video! Way easier to follow along with video! Thanks!!

  • Natalie Buie December 1, 2017 at 9:28 am

    Can you list all of the product names you used today?

  • Leah Crouse December 1, 2017 at 9:33 am

    Thank you, this is so helpful!💗

  • Lauren Chitwood December 1, 2017 at 9:40 am

    Okay, SO ADORABLE!!! LOVE THE VIDEOS! I know it is weird to take videos of yourself sometimes but this gave an amazing touch to your blog!! You’re amazing!! 🙂 Also- Is your bathroom wallpapered? Where did you find that amazingness?

  • Kathy L December 1, 2017 at 9:49 am

    The videos turned out great, and this post was full of fun things I just love to hear about! This week has been so exciting and WOW are you and Sheaffer ending it with a BANG!! My goodness someone is going to be having a fabulous time shopping with a friend at Nordstrom! 🙂

  • teleana davis December 1, 2017 at 9:51 am

    What a great week of giveaways. I am going to miss seeing the fun videos of you and @shaeffertoldmeto on instagram. 🙂

  • Mary December 1, 2017 at 9:58 am

    Where did you purchase the round beaded stretch bracelets that you’re wearing in the last picture with the grey turtleneck? You’re wearing a few of them. Are they a set?

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 1:37 pm

      I bought them on our town square at a store called Primp 🙂 .

  • Roshunda Nance December 1, 2017 at 9:58 am

    Love this post❤️💕

  • Chelsea December 1, 2017 at 9:59 am

    You just rocked my world! You know how you read someone’s words and you make up this voice that you think is theres based on how they look and speak and then you hear them in real life and it is not at all what you imagined. Well that just happened! And now somehow I think I know you, like you invited me over to watch you do your hair:) The videos were great!

    • emelie December 1, 2017 at 10:55 pm

      Ok! I am so glad I found your comment. I know this is silly but, I was scrolling through the comments just to see if someone thought the same thing as me. I have followed Shay for a couple of years and I feel like just more recently she has gotten more popular and been on shows like the Today show. The first time I heard voice I like did a double take and my jaw dropped. Not, because she sounded bad just because it is NOT AT ALL what I thought she would sound like. It still gets me every time I hear her!

  • Meg December 1, 2017 at 10:10 am

    Love everything about this post and love the videos ♥️🎄

  • Anna Taylor | Nutritionalist December 1, 2017 at 10:15 am

    I love the videos! I agree with the others that you would make some great Vlogs. I am grateful for this giveaway, thanks for making it for us. I could really use the gift card, it has been an extremely rough year for me and my son. We live in McKinney as well! It is inspiring to see your updates, family stories, and fun career. Thank you for sharing with us, being a great friend and mom!

  • Natalie Brouse December 1, 2017 at 10:22 am

    Hi Shay, what suede booties are you wearing with that jacket? Thanks!

    • Natalie Brouse December 1, 2017 at 10:23 am

      nevermind! I noticed someone else asked also! thanks!

  • Keisha Dawson December 1, 2017 at 10:39 am

    You girls are so incredibly generous, and your videos turned out great! Love your hair!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick December 1, 2017 at 10:54 am

    My internet connection failed as soon as I hit send for my first reply so if this is reply #2, whoopsie. 😉 Love your videos though! So cute! And you always have great hair. I’m a fan of the wet bun too but if I go to sleep with it wet, it stays in a bun the next day. My hair does not fluff out all pretty like yours when I take it down! Happy Friday!! That Inspired Chick

  • Amy Getz December 1, 2017 at 10:56 am

    Shay – I LOVED this . . . and HATED it too. Know why? I just bought every product you suggested except the shampoo! I love the idea of washing my hair at night – what a time saver and has never occurred to me before so THANK YOU! Love your blog and can’t wait to check it out every day!

  • Angela Ellingson December 1, 2017 at 11:00 am

    I was moving too fast and didn’t get my Pinterest pinning link in for you, so here it is just in case: . 😉 LOVED your video tutorials!!!!!! Thank you for doing that! Now I just need to win the Nordstrom gift cards to purchase all the things. lol I also wanted to thank you for the recommendation for The Wonder of the Greatest Gift. We did December 1st as a family together this morning and we all loved it! This will be such a special few minutes in our day each day till Christmas! Happy Friday!

  • Cecile December 1, 2017 at 11:19 am

    Thanks for sharing your tips with us!

  • Ashala J December 1, 2017 at 11:25 am

    Great videos! Love to see the hair products you are using. I must say I’m most impressed and would love to learn your secret to keeping your kids out of the bathroom while you get ready. Amiright?

  • Carrie December 1, 2017 at 11:26 am

    Great job on the videos! You makes me feel like I can do it.
    If I won the giveaway I would need you to shop with me.(kinda kidding) I don’t feel comfortable shopping in person in the store. The sales associates don’t seem to want to help people who have a certain profile.

  • faith m heimbrodt December 1, 2017 at 11:33 am

    I think you did great on your videos! I like the lazy hair the best!

  • Steph C December 1, 2017 at 11:37 am

  • Lisa Richardson December 1, 2017 at 11:57 am

    Well you girls are just the cutest “partners in crime” and I love these giveaways…maybe I’ll even win one of these days. Good for you getting out of your comfort zone and sharing the videos!!! Love it! Happy Dec. 1st, Shay!❤️🎄

  • Ashley December 1, 2017 at 11:58 am

    Ahhhh I’ve been waiting for the hair tutorials ever since you did your nighttime hair routine post months ago…I even put a post-it inside my medicine cabinet of the order of stuff before bed and when you wake up, lol!
    Question…I noticed you added a few products and removed some. Do you not use the Living Proof night cap product anymore? I’ve loved their stuff for a long time and just got their TBD styler cream (very good!). Just curious if you do any masks or things like that still. Thanks and love the hair! Thanks so much for posting!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 1:36 pm

      I ran out and tried something else! I still love that though!!

  • Kelly December 1, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    Well, these videos are just delightful! Such a fun week, I know it takes a little bit of time and energy and planning to put all of this together, well done:) Happy Friday, Shay!

  • Tricia Huffman December 1, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    Love, loved your videos! Your hair always looks great – definitely going to give your process and products a try! I have a confession to make . . . been reading your blog for a few years now and knowing you were from TX, I always expected you to have a heavy Texan drawl! Funny how the mind works right? Thank you for inspiring me daily with your posts and books!

  • Stacy December 1, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    Your videos were good! I have super curly hair, so it’s always fun to see what others use. 🙂

  • Tina December 1, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    So glad you finally did hair videos! I hope you do more videos moving forward!🙂 Question about the CC cream: How would you compare the coverage to a foundation or a tinted moisturizer? I love using tinted moisturizer, but need a little more coverage than they typically offer….but a lot of foundations just seem so thick and heavy. Would the CC be an in between option, in your opinion?

    Shay, you should not make excuses for your videos! 1. You do not look dumb 2. Everyone cares about the secret to your beach waves!! You’re videos were awesome and SO personable. It was fun to see you talk in a video after reading your words on the page for years! Amazing job!!!!

  • Kelly Chen December 1, 2017 at 9:25 pm

    Shay, you did great on your hair tutorials! Unfortunately, mine never looks like that the morning after. 🙁 And that oatmeal turtleneck sweater…too cute! I love it with the jacket. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  • Angela Banae Patterson December 3, 2017 at 9:57 am

    I love the hair tutorials!!!! You are the best, Shay!!! I have the T3 flat iron and it’s my absolute favorite! I think I need to try the T3 curling wand now!
    What boots are you wearing with the adorable gray sweater? I love them!

    Fantastic giveaway! Also, thanks for the hair videos! My hair is similar to yours and I simply do not have time to blow dry/straighten everyday. Fingers crossed your tips work and I can stop wearing a ponytail!

    Hey Shay!!!!! I love your tree that’s in your closet. Where did you get it from? I need!!!!!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 4, 2017 at 4:55 am

      Home Depot 🙂

  • Stephanie Anderson December 4, 2017 at 6:06 am

    Awesome job on the videos! You are too cute. My hair is super straight but I watched them all anyways and shared with my SIL since she and wavy hair. An idea for a blog is how you organize your closet. We are remodeling/expanding and I want to make sure I’m thinking of everything. As an engineer I am super OCD about my closet. Do you organized seasons, color? Etc…

    • Mix and Match Mama December 4, 2017 at 6:08 am

      I guess you would say that it’s organized by “type”. Shorts are together, pants together, sleeveless together, etc.

  • Kate December 4, 2017 at 9:47 pm

    Just a tip for using your wand. If you hold the handle of the wand up (like you did when curling your first side) when curling both sides of your hair you will get more uniform curls on both sides. Vs how you held the wand handle down when you curled the 2nd side which can tend to make a lump in your hair. Hope that makes sense and maybe helps you out a little. Thanks for the video. It’s nice to see how others do their beach waves.

  • Andrea December 6, 2017 at 9:25 pm

    love the videos!!!! can you please tell me exactly which caviar product that you use? thank you!!!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 7, 2017 at 4:56 am

      • Andrea December 7, 2017 at 10:44 am

        I’m Sorry!! I Didn’t realize there were more products listed besides the Moroccan Oil (didn’t notice the arrows) Thank you

  • Amy DeShazo December 7, 2017 at 12:06 pm

    Your videos are great! I have been doing my hair the same way and love it. I have a question – what do you do with your hair when you go to the gym? Do you leave it in the bun?
