Friday Favorites: Wellies for TWO Giveaway!

Happy happy happy Friday, friends!

Okay…I don’t know about you, but we have Olympic fever over here.  If there is one consistent theme on my blog over the last 10½ years it is our love of all-things Olympic related.  We were so excited to watch last night and then cannot wait to see the opening ceremonies tonight.  Who else is obsessed?!  Andrew and I are those crazy people that you will find up at 3:30 in the morning cheering on some obscure sport that no one has really ever heard of…because we can’t get enough 🙂 .  Just for grins, here’s a throwback pic from when we took the kids (pre-Madeley) to the Olympic Museum

…look how little everyone is!  They get big SO FAST!!  So, if you are looking for us this weekend, we’re on the couch.

Okay, just like every Friday, I’m linking up with three of my besties, AndreaErika and Narci today and sharing my favorite things from this week.  Make sure you read this whole post, there’s a giveaway at the bottom!!!

Here’s hopin’ you have the best weekend! xo

So, Sheaffer bought me a bottle of this last week…

…because she said it was the greatest thing EVER, and I cannot stop using it…

…from avocado toast to scrambled eggs, I’m shaking it on everything.  For all of you Trader Joe’s peeps out there, grab you a bottle.  Stat.

Narci (who is my Stella & Dot rep) had on the cutest bracelets the other day and told me to get myself some too…

…and because I love bracelets and always listen to Narci, I did 🙂 .  Aren’t they cute?!  I love the colors in them!!  These will look so cute heading into summer too.  You can see them all HERE.

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to do more yoga (something I love!) and several of you told me to download this app…

…called Yogaglo and I did a few weeks ago AND LOVE IT!  I honestly have never loved a workout app more!!  Now, there is a monthly fee to use the app, but it’s amazing!  You can pick your classes (by length, type of yoga, instructor, level of difficulty, etc) and the workouts are so good!  I use it all the time and am completely smitten with it.  If you like this kind of thing, I think you’ll love this app.  Thank you to all of you who recommended it to me!!

I found these treatment pad things for your face that I think you guys will love!  I’ve used it now three times and am obsessed!  Back in the fall when I did my Skin Care post, I told you guys how much I love the brand Tula, and the mask is from there.  When I went to reorder face wash the other day, I ordered these too and am so happy I did!  Here’s how it works…

You buy a box that has 16 of these little packets inside.  Here’s a pic of the front of one packet and the back.  First, I wash my face…

…I always take my makeup off with the cleansing oil and then wash my face with this Tula face wash

…then you open a packet and remove this thing.  First, you rub the smooth side all over your face (it has a special serum on it), then you flip it over and scrub your face for a minute with the other side.  (Little bits of cotton will be on your face, but that’s perfectly fine!)  It’s freakish how much stuff this thing removes from your face.  Even after I cleanse and wash my face, this little pad thing removes a TON of leftover makeup and whatnot from my face.  After I’m done, I moisturize and my skin feels great.  This is the closest thing I’ve ever used to making me feel like I left the dermatologist’s office. It reallllly deep cleans.

So, it’s a new favorite of mine.  Three cheers for a clean face!  You can read my whole skin care post HERE.

Looking for something festive to do on Wednesday morning…

Valentine's Breakfast for Kids!

…we always have a little Valentine’s breakfast for my kiddos before they head to school.  To see my favorite red and pink breakfast recipes and cocoa, click HERE.

And wrapping up today, a fun giveaway!!

One of the most popular giveaways Sheaffer and I ever did was this one…

…it was a Valentine’s giveaway where we gave one winner and her friend each a pair of Wellies.  We were talking about that giveaway the other day and decided to resurrect it for this upcoming holiday 🙂 .  This time though, we’re making it an Instagram giveaway and there will be TWO winners each getting a pair of Wellies for themselves and one more pair to gift.  Here’s how it’s going to work:  Sheaffer and I will both put this graphic above on Instagram today around 6:00 AM CST.  You go to either (or both if you want more entries!) of our IG accounts and tag the person you would pick to win with you.  One random person will be picked from my Instagram and another from Sheaffer’s.  BOTH you and the person you tag have to follow each of us on Instagram in order to win.  The random entries will be picked and we’ll order you some Wellies!  (You pick glossy, matte, tall or short!)  Easy enough?  And the best part?  You can enter as many times as you want with multiple people.  You can enter once with your sister, once with your mama, once with your co-worker, etc.  You enter, we pick, you and your tagged person get Wellies.  Contest valid for US citizens only.

I have probably posted more about my Wellies than any other pair of shoes I own over the last ten years.  They are tried and true favorites of mine…

…they’re comfy, they keep my feet warm and of course, they keep my feet really dry too.

Here’s hoping you and someone you love win some Wellies too!  Head to our IG’s to enter to win!!!


Happy Friday!!  Enjoy the Olympics! xo

    I’m always trying to find face wash products that actually take all your makeup off and leave you with a clean face. Sounds like I have to try Tula! I’m an Olympic fan but seem to watch less during the winter games. Have a fabulous weekend!

    I love to watch the olymipcs!! There’s always something to watch on tv! Thanks for the giveaway! Happy Friday!

  • Nicole February 9, 2018 at 5:32 am

    How long do you usually work out at home and when? Do you mix yoga with cardio? Thanks!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 5:44 am

      It depends on what I do. I would say 45 minutes to an hour is my normal.

  • Erika Slaughter February 9, 2018 at 5:43 am

    I’m not sure what happened but after reading yesterday-I wasn’t convinced I need a dog BUT today I’m convinced I need those Tula scrubs! They look amazing!!

  • Narci Dreffs February 9, 2018 at 6:13 am

    Girl, I am loving those bracelets on you! We can’t wait for the opening ceremony tonight too! And, what a fun giveaway!!!! ❤️

    • liz February 9, 2018 at 12:29 pm

      Narci – can you please share the names of the bracelets from left to right? Thanks

  • Sheaffer Sims February 9, 2018 at 6:19 am

    Those face pad things look AMAZING. The Everything But The Bagel season is LEGIT. And now I want those bracelets.

  • Angelique February 9, 2018 at 6:20 am

    Oooohhhh, I need some wells! Yay! Heading to your IG now! 🙂

  • Erin February 9, 2018 at 6:33 am

    You should try the Chile lime seasoning from Trader Joe’s. So good!

  • Kami February 9, 2018 at 6:40 am

    Great giveaway! It dawned on me last night that your husband reminds me of Mike Fisher—has anyone else ever said this?! 😆

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 7:27 am

      I haven’t heard that, but I can kind of see it too!! Mike Fisher is so cute!!

      • Ariadna February 9, 2018 at 7:48 am

        Have you seen Shawn Johnson and her husband? They remind me of you and Andrew, specially her husband looks like you husband too! And I may be mistaken but I think her husband’s name is Andrew too! 🙂 Have a great weekend!

  • Dustie Day February 9, 2018 at 7:01 am

    Thanks so much for introducing me to Tula! Love it! Happy Friday 🙂

  • Taylor February 9, 2018 at 7:01 am

    I love Tula! I bought a product of theirs a few months ago and they sent me a sample of those cleansing pads and I was also obsessed.

  • Heidi February 9, 2018 at 7:02 am

    Can you link directly to the individual bracelets? I love them but can only seem to find the middle 3 on the site.

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 7:27 am

      Their site is tricky sometimes. Look under new arrivals (that’s where I ordered the other two!).

  • Dollie February 9, 2018 at 7:06 am

    Hey shay what kinda socks do you wear with your wellies? I don’t always wear the wellies warm socks with the boots and they hurt my heels sometimes.

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 7:26 am

      Just normal ones (unless it’s cold and then I wear wool socks).

  • Alexis deZayas February 9, 2018 at 7:12 am

    What a fun giveaway!!! After seeing you wear them so many times, I think I would choose red too 🙂

  • Jenny February 9, 2018 at 7:14 am

    Hi- how many times a week do you use those Tula pads and is it morning or night ? Thanks.

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 7:26 am

      I’ve been using them about every 6 days or so at night.

  • Sarah February 9, 2018 at 7:20 am

    Totally buying those face pads!! Thanks for the recommendation!! Also, hooray for a Wellies giveaway!!! After losing TWO pairs of sneakers to puddles this WEEK, I’m really hoping I win LOL!!!
    Happy weekend!!!

  • Maura February 9, 2018 at 7:28 am

    Hi Shay!!! Love your posts! Was wondering if our instagram accounts have to be public in order to win? Happy Friday!!!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 7:54 am

      They do not!

  • sydnee February 9, 2018 at 7:31 am

    We’re finally getting a Trader Joe’s near us…so excited! And those face pads sound amazing!

    Try the seasoning on 2ingredientdough bagels. Equal portions of self rising flour and plain non-fat Greek yogurt. You can use the dough for an individual pizza crust, make rolls, or bagels.

  • Jena February 9, 2018 at 7:42 am

    I love everything about that “Valentine’s Breakfast” photo of Madeley! You’re a lady after my own heart. Celebrate everything and always be festive! 🙂 <3 Happy Friday!

  • Laci February 9, 2018 at 7:55 am

    I love skin care post!

  • kellie carrara February 9, 2018 at 8:04 am

    Love a new skin care product. I’m using Hollywood Glow right now — it’s working and not irritating my sensitive skin and it SMELLS.SO.GOOD!
    I LOVE my wellies but need a NEW pair, since I’m heading to the KY Derby this year! Would love to win matchers for my bestie and me! Thanks, Shay!

  • Kate Oman February 9, 2018 at 8:30 am

    I love skin care products…will definitely be checking this one out!! And Wellies…you are amazing, thanks for the opportunity!!!!

  • Lindsay February 9, 2018 at 8:46 am

    We are also Olympic obsessed! I am currently on maternity leave (sweet baby George joined us on December 6). When I was looking ahead to maternity leave and realized I would not only be off of work for the holidays but also for the Olympics, I could hardly believe my luck! Enjoy the games and GO USA!

  • Kathy L February 9, 2018 at 8:46 am

    I love Tula products but haven’t tried the treatment pads yet, so I’ll have to check them out! We started recording the Olympics last night and will be on the couch watching them all weekend while it rains! 🙂 Speaking of rain…thanks for the opportunity to win some wellies for myself and a friend! Love the cute picture of the three kiddos when they were younger, and Madeley’s smile with the hot cocoa just melts me!

  • Heather S February 9, 2018 at 9:12 am

    Have you tried the Foreo Luna? It totally replaced my Clarisonic- it deep cleanses so much better and has antimicrobial properties too! Win-win in my book.

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      I’ve never even heard of it!! Looking it up now!

  • Ralinn February 9, 2018 at 9:25 am

    The bracelets look so good on you. I will definitely make a trip to Traders. The sprinkle looks so good. I need to check out the face pads. They sound amazing.

  • mary February 9, 2018 at 9:34 am

    I’m obsessed with the Olympics. I swear people are either obsessed or do not watch. How can you not watch, I just don’t understand! 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 12:50 pm

      Me. Either!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick February 9, 2018 at 10:41 am

    Those little face pads look amazing!!! I want!! That Inspired Chick

  • WhittyWife February 9, 2018 at 10:48 am

    This New Englander with dry skin definitely needs those Tula pads… headed to Nordstrom online now to get some (they have amazing reviews on the Tula site too!!). Thanks for the recommendation! 🙂

  • Sarah Foteff February 9, 2018 at 10:54 am

    Love when you talk about your skin care products! As someone that has struggled with skin issues into adulthood, I really appreciate your honest and informative reviews! Have a great weekend! 🙂

  • Katie James February 9, 2018 at 11:48 am

    Hi Shay! The Everything Bagel Seasoning is AMAZING in a frittatta. I saute the veggies/meat in it, season the eggs with it, then top with cheese and even MORE seasoning before putting the whole thing in the oven. My TJs sometimes runs out, so I now buy multiple bottles at a time. Enjoy!

  • Anna Henderson February 9, 2018 at 12:46 pm

    That yogaglo app looks amazing! I’m definitely going to try it out!!

  • Alexandra February 9, 2018 at 1:18 pm

    What’s your all-time favorite face mask? Do you still use the pumpkin enzyme mask from Peter Thomas Roth? Thanks!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 1:58 pm

      I do!! If I had to pick one, it would be the Tula one that is blue. It’s such a multi-tasker!

  • Sue February 9, 2018 at 1:29 pm

    What nail color are you wearing in the pic with the face oil and cleanser?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 9, 2018 at 1:58 pm

      OPI Let’s Be Friends 🙂

      • Caitlin February 9, 2018 at 4:33 pm

        Have you purchased the OPI let’s be friends recently? I have seen you wear it a bunch and it’s such a nice color!! It doesn’t appear Nordstrom and Amazon sell it any longer.

        • Mix and Match Mama February 10, 2018 at 6:21 am

          The last time I bought it was this fall off of Amazon.

  • Beth Knecht February 9, 2018 at 4:53 pm

    Does your dermatologist have their own skincare line? I’m curious if you use any of their products or what makes you choose most products from a department store?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 10, 2018 at 6:21 am

      They don’t. They recommend what kinds of products to use (serums, moisturizers, Retin-A), but they don’t have a line.

  • Kare February 9, 2018 at 5:29 pm

    Watching the Olympics with my family growing up is such a fond memory! My husband and I always watched with our boys as well….and I hope they look back on those times as great family memories some day too. I just ordered the cleansing oil and Tula! Very excited to try both, my skin needs a little boost as I roll towards 53 in a few weeks.

    Heading to Insta next for my shot at Wellies! Happy Friday!

  • Amy February 10, 2018 at 9:15 am

    Here is some info for your yoga friends. I went to Groupon and got a great deal on Groupon. It’s called the It was $15 for a year and there are so many choices. I have done about 5 classes this far and love it.

  • Kay February 10, 2018 at 3:47 pm

    This is a random question, but that is the most appetizing turkey bacon I have ever seen – where do you buy it and how do you prepare it? Makes me hungry!

    • Mix and Match Mama February 11, 2018 at 5:24 am

      It’s just butterball and I crisp it up on the skillet 🙂 .

  • Michele Roux February 10, 2018 at 11:51 pm

    Those face wipes look amazing! Also, I think my little sisters are going to love the Valentine’s Day breakfast 🙂

  • Eileen February 12, 2018 at 6:39 am

    Hi, Shay. Someone told me a couple of months ago that the TJs everything seasoning was life changing. I thought that was quite the exaggeration but I’m now obsessed. Have you tried the 21 seasoning salute? That one is also great. Love your blog and your sunny outlook on life!

  • Erin Port February 12, 2018 at 1:18 pm

    I need to check out that skincare line, I have not heard of it before 🙂 xoxo ERIN

  • Lauren February 13, 2018 at 7:10 am

    Your avocado toast always looks so yummy! Is it just mashed up avocado or do you add something to it like lemon juice?

    • Mix and Match Mama February 13, 2018 at 7:18 am

      Sometimes, I get fancy, on this day, it was just mashed up avocado with that seasoning…because that stuff is amazing!
