Happy Friday, friends!
You guys…we have warm weather and sunny skies in our forecast. I. Am. So. Excited.
I remember being young and having so many great things to look forward to each weekend…you know, concerts, trendy new restaurants and lazy mornings with my coffee after sleeping in a bit. Now, I’m over the moon because the weather will be sunny and Smith’s baseball tournament is like five minutes from my house. This is 40, people. 😉
You guys, I AM FLIPPING OUT…
…Sally Hepworth is coming to McKinney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Come celebrate New York Times Bestselling author Sally Hepworth who will be meeting and greeting fans, and signing copies of her newest suspense novel, THE YOUNGER WIFE, from 4 to 6 PM at Sharla’s Boutique 109 East Virginia Street, McKinney, TX 75069, on the North side of the Historic Square in Downtown McKinney.
Um, so, not to name drop or anything, but Sally Hepworth and I are friends.
How cool is that?
We’ve been friendly over the internet, messaging and social media for years and years, but now, this Australian beauty is about to launch her US book tour and asked me what my thoughts are about her coming to little ole McKinney, TX. (Um, my thoughts are that I’m going to fangirl hardcore, so I hope she’s ready.) She’s coming to visit and I am beyond ecstatic! If you’re local (or can drive down!), come see Sally (and me!) on Thursday, April 14th.
I’m so excited to hug your neck, Sally Hepworth!!!!!
If I had to write down the most popular questions I’ve received over the last 14½ years from readers, without hesitation, I would say that one of the most frequently asked question (maybe THE most frequently asked question) I’ve received is…
…where did you get your yellow Apple watch band.
I’m not joking.
I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times.
I just looked and I *think* I bought mine in 2018 but honestly, it could have been the year before. Out of all of my Apple watches (I’m on my 7th one) and all of my bands (I’ve had about 24)…
…yellow is my very favorite. So, why am I telling you today? Because I just saw that Apple has them out again this year (the first I’ve seen them out in YEARS!), so if you’re one of those people who want one, you better grab it before it’s gone. Please read this: I’ve had at least 5 Apple watches since I bought my yellow band, and it’s worked beautifully with each one. So whether you have the Series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7…this band will work for you (just buy the size closest to your size). You’re welcome. 😉
Friends, what took me so long to buy a heated lash curler?! My mother-in-law has been telling me for years that these are game-changers, so I finally bought one, and it’s seriously going to be my favorite Amazon purchase of 2022. It arrived right before Hawaii, so I stuck it in my bag. I’m obsessed.
It’s thin, it’s light, it heats up in seconds and it only requires two AAA batteries. It’s so easy to use that I feel very silly to just now be purchasing one. It makes my lashes lift and curl significantly better than the old-fashioned variety. I’m a believer!
So, Andrew and I don’t give each other Christmas gifts, but this year, he surprised me with something that had me laughing for days…
..he put my brand in neon. Bahahahaha!
How fun is that?! I mean…it wasn’t a bag. Bahaha! I’m still laughing now.
I’m creating a very French vibe in my office, but a little hot pink neon was apparently the touch I was missing. I absolutely love it and have so much fun playing around with it (there is a remote to control how bright/dim you want it).
It’s fun, it’s happy, it’s pink…it’s all the things I hope you all think about when you think about Mix & Match Mama.
My sweet hubby had it made off of Etsy at a shop called Manhattan Neons.
Merry Christmas to me 😉 .
Friends, I have a new obsession. I started reallllly listening to podcasts about a year ago and now, I listen all the time (when I run, when I do chores around the house, fold laundry, take a bath, put my makeup on, and drive around by myself). One of my very favorite podcasts is The Simple Sophisticate. She’s a woman about my age whose entire brand is built around making every day and every little thing you do, simpler and more special.
I want to be friends with this woman.
She speaks my love language.
I love looking at each day and finding JOY in the small details (and hopefully you’ve seen me live that here in blog world).
Well, her third book just came out this week, so I decided to buy…
…all three. From food to her garden, traveling, home decor, her dog…seriously, this woman is my soul sister. I’m so excited to dive into all three of her books!
And because it’s Friday and the weather is warm, I thought I’d share this with you again…
Until Monday, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by this week! xx
