Amazon lately.

Happy Wednesday, friends!!

I don’t know about you, but my Amazon cart has been mostly Halloween things lately.  Between costumes and wigs, festive napkins, plates and more, the Halloween fairy has been delivering us spooky goodness every day!  In fact, I went to a fun dinner last night and my outfit came right from Amazon!  The theme was “wear all black”…

Did I nail it?!  My dress comes in a lot of colors, but in keeping with the theme, I bought black 🙂 .  My wig also comes in a bunch of fun and bright colors too!

So, besides all of that fun stuff, here’s what else I’ve been Prime-ing…

These are my favorite blonde bobby pins!

Our occupational therapist suggest that Ashby start using these because they help strengthen her left hand (which we’re trying to make dominate) since she has to squeeze while pushing down at the same time.  All three girls are excited we have them!  We have loads of glitter glue art at my house right now!  They are very washable.  I’ve gotten it just about out of every surface/article of clothing we own.  Ha!

I bought another one of these towels!!  We now have three over here which is probably not enough for Kensington, Ashby and me.  We’re obsessed!  I really do think it dries my hair faster!!!

Awe!  I love Beth Moore’s Bible studies the most!!  I’ve been really enjoying repeating this one for my second time.

I wore this top to flag football.  It’s a little short, so I wore a cami underneath it, but I thought it was super cute!

Chip clips…because I don’t know where all of mine went?!  It’s like one minute, I had a lot and the next, I had nothing.

This top right here!  It comes in a million colors and is just so easy to throw on!

Smith’s amazing costume was an Amazon find too!

And last but not least, I bought this dress off Amazon and have already worn it twice!  It comes in other colors and is only $29!

That’s it for today!  I hope you guys have the most fantastic Hump Day!! xo

    Love your Amazon posts, I have two post requests:

    1 – Amazon post but for those monthly purchases that you always do – shampoo, cleaning products, vitamins etc. So those that you always buy monthly or bi-monthly.
    2 – A home building post. We are in the process of planning our new home and would love to hear what you would have done differently when you built your house. Laundry upstairs vs downstairs, bathroom/bedroom layouts etc. Anything that you would do differently if you are planning on building a new home 🙂

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 5:13 am

      I actually think I buy all of that cleaning stuff at the grocery store. I paused to think about it, and yes, I don’t Prime that stuff. I did a home building post several years ago but could update it!

      I have both dresses in my shopping cart! So so cute! What size did you get? I am thinking XS for both?

    Amen to the chip clips. Here one day and gone the next. I also love those tops. I just bought the “baby shark” costume from Amazon ( My 2 year old put it on and started singing “Baby shark doo doo doo,” and I just can’t even!!!!!! Here is the one for bigger kids and they have one for adults. Maybe I am super late to the party and these have been a thing for a while, but they are awesome.

    • Reply Lauren October 23, 2019 at 5:52 am

      No way, I JUST bought a baby shark costume from Amazon too! Is it going to be the year we see a million baby sharks?? I hope so 😀

      • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 7:30 am

        That’s such a cute costume idea! Madeley would have liked that!

      • Reply Ahna @ Hammers N Hugs October 23, 2019 at 3:18 pm

        I might literally die laughing if I see more than one small child in the baby shark costume. A line up of baby sharks?!! Oh my word. I won’t be able to breathe haha.

    Your outfit last night was AMAZING. The End.

  • Reply Simply Styling October 23, 2019 at 5:37 am

    I bought the burgundy top in several colors as well. I saw you had it on in a few posts back and loved how it looked. Amazon Hauls are my favorite ! Loving the all black costume.

  • Reply Erika Slaughter October 23, 2019 at 5:41 am

    I have a LONG list of ideas for your Halloween costume for next year-including that wig. It was perfection! And my favorite part might have been your persona!

  • Reply Melissa Carswell October 23, 2019 at 5:51 am

    Great finds Shay. The link for the cropped top seems to be for the wig. Can you please post the name of the top and/or repost the link. Thanks much!

  • Reply Lauren October 23, 2019 at 5:51 am

    I ordered that twist knot sweater in multiple colors after reading your posts last week! Love it! I also did a (short) post on what I’ve been Priming this month.

    Love that you do this every month! Have you tht about doing a link up for it??

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 7:30 am

      What a great idea!

      • Reply Jenn Johnson October 23, 2019 at 10:32 am

        Yes! These are my favorite posts! Please do a link up!

        Also, you look EXACTLY like Monica from Friends in your black costume (at least in that pic.)! I totally thought you were her when I first saw it. Am I the only one?

    the link to the top you wore to flag football incorrectly links to the wig. would you please post the correct link? that top is super cute. thanks!

  • Reply Jennifer Davis October 23, 2019 at 6:14 am

    Hi, the shirt you wore the flag football game is a link to the wig. Could you fix it please:-)

  • Reply Kristi October 23, 2019 at 6:17 am

    Fun!! I just bought a few things off your list! I’m wondering if you got the new Apple Watch? Is it worth it?? Which one did you get? I’m thinking about updating!! Thanks!

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 7:30 am

      I think I’m about to do a review! I’m still getting my thoughts together!

        I was going to go upgrade today!! Should I wait?!?! Hahaha!

    Do you buy smalls in most of your amazon tops? I love these and want to try!

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 7:29 am

      I read the reviews and for the most part, xsmall unless it says it runs small.

    Love your amazon posts! Can you link your past amazon posts

  • Reply Lisa Nortman October 23, 2019 at 7:05 am

    Love when you share even the smallest items that work for you! Chip Clips are fine and pretty, but wooden clothespins work well too:)

      That reminds me of my dad’s mom!! I love that!!

      We use wooden clothespins, too! 😊

      • Reply Jenny N October 23, 2019 at 11:20 am

        I use wooden clothespins too! I get a big bag at Walmart for $2-3 dollars and that way when they get broken or lost I don’t mind so much. I have had the same bag for several years because we don’t go through them that much.

    Love the all black outfit!!! So fun, especially the wig. What a fun idea!

    You look great ! Thanks for sharing . Where are the boots from? I didn’t see you mentioned those . I love them .

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 9:10 am

      They’re not current. I’m sorry! I think they’re four-ish years old.

  • Reply Kristen October 23, 2019 at 8:19 am

    I love your style and all of the cute clothes you post, and I love that they are affordable! I’m in need of some new boots! Any good finds on booties or tall boots???

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 9:09 am

      I’m still on the hunt for the perfect bootie this season. I love my peep toe booties, but the weather is making those hard to wear.

  • Reply Allison October 23, 2019 at 8:34 am

    Your all black outfit looks amazing on you and how fun is that wig! I think I might get the red one just for fun to hand out candy on Halloween. May I ask you where you found the black boots? Thank you!

  • Reply Natalie October 23, 2019 at 8:40 am

    Hi Shay

    I love your costume .. you look great . Where did you get the boots from ? You didn’t mention those and I love them .. thanks so much for sharing.

  • Reply Ciara Chase October 23, 2019 at 8:42 am

    You probably listed them in a different post, but could you post the link for the light brown booties you are wearing in picture you took of your flag football outfit? Thank you!

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 23, 2019 at 9:07 am

      Those are oldies but goodies from the Anniversary Sale probably three years ago. They’re Rag & Bone.

  • Reply Danna October 23, 2019 at 8:43 am

    You look great in a dark black wig! Will you tell us more about the party? Was it a couples, ladies only, or theme party? Love getting ideas on doing something different for Halloween or birthday parties for adults. I too have bought my costume, wig, and accessories on Amazon and anxiously waiting to see it and the quality.

    I truly thought you were dressed as Monica Gellar–remember the episode with the expensive tall black boots?

  • Reply Meredith October 23, 2019 at 8:58 am

    I also thought you looked just like Courtney Cox in the black wig- funny I never thought it before but as soon as I saw the picture I just assumed it was your Halloween costume

      I’m going to have to go as her next year. Maybe Andrew can be Chandler??? (Although, I liked Tom Selleck more!!)

    Hi. Can you advise on the sizing for the black dress? The reviews are so different!

      The last one that I have worn to church? I bought an xsmall and find that it’s very true to size.

    I really love that last dress; it’s so cute! We have a funeral next weekend and that would be perfect.

  • Reply Beverly October 23, 2019 at 4:56 pm

    I have a better idea for you instead of chip clips! We have a FoodSaver and we use the sealer to reseal our chip bags! I use that to reseal cereal bags, powdered sugar bags, and chocolate chip bags, The possibilities are endless. The FoodSaver has saved us a lot of money over the years!

  • Reply October 23, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    I saw this picture of you on Instagram and had a mini freak out and thought who the heck is in Shay’s closet?! Then I realized it was you and laughed aloud! I love it! So fun! And I love the black dress!!

  • Reply ERIKA MILLS October 23, 2019 at 8:09 pm

    We used to spend SO much on chip clips but know what works great…..clothespins!! I let my kids decorate them with stickers, glue things, markers, etc and they’re great rainy day craft and then boom chip clips galore!

  • Reply Ashley October 23, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    Could you do a post on what you use / take for your hair? It always looks so good. But lately it looks so long. Just wondering what products/shampoo/ vitamins or supplements you take for your hair? Thanks! Xo

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama October 24, 2019 at 5:12 am

      Same products that I’ve been using! I can’t take hair supplements because most of them contain fish oil, and I can’t take fish oil. I think it’s because my hair hasn’t been in the sun/chlorine lately.

  • Reply Renee October 25, 2019 at 9:59 am

    I love that dress, what is your height? The dress looks much shorter on the model on the Amazon website. I prefer the length on you than the model.

  • Reply Stacey Mahon October 25, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    So funny about the chip clips! Where do they all go? 😂

      Right? All of a sudden you have zero, and you’re like, “did they walk away?!?”. Bahahaha!

  • Reply Ralinn October 26, 2019 at 1:14 pm

    I have the Aquis towel and love it. It really does cut down the drying time. We also have had the bag clips for years and they work great. Amazon has so much to choose from. I love your wig and dress. Now we know what you look like with black hair. Lol
