Weekly Mix: Blush & Reds

Button Down / Bangle / Ruffle Sweater / Earrings  / Pumps / Clutch / Bomber Jacket / Trench Remember last Spring when I was in love with blush and pink? Well, I still am. This week I’ve gathered some of my favorite spring forward pieces and they are all blush, pink, or red. I’m seriously ready for soft colors and warmer air. Winter has been very mild in my area but nothing beats warm air on my face. Even though the weather is still chilly, I’ve put together some items I’ve got my eye on as we transition into Spring.…

Classics & The Brown Moto Jacket

I love classic looks but I also love edgy pieces. What could be better than mixing classic and edgy? Not much my friends. A moto jacket is the easiest way to add edge to any outfit. If you don’t own a moto jacket – go get a moto jacket. There is something so fun and cool about a moto jacket. I’ve had this moto jacket for awhile and I’m always hesitant about wearing it. Strangely, I don’t have a truly valid reason why. I think the color throws me off a bit. I’m always drawn to dark colors. I’ll be…

Rodial Nude Eyeshadow Mini-Palette

My makeup routine consists of neutral looks I can wear all day and transition into the night. For my eyes, I also gravitate towards neutral looks. For the last week I’ve been using a Nude Eyeshadow Mini-Palette  and Smokey Eye Pen c/o of Rodial to create both neutral day and night looks. The Rodial Nude Eyeshadow Mini-Palette is nothing short of awesome. The colors are a mix of high pigment matte and pearl shadows that blend perfectly.

Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex

I’m teamed up with Exuviance today and talking about the Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex. If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m on a serious skin care and improvement streak. My goal is to improve my skin and work against the signs of aging (fine lines, etc.) that have appeared in my 30’s. Being in my 30’s, I’ve realized that great skin requires upkeep and care. I have oily skin but at times my skin is more combination than oily. I’m often battling both oil and dryness. Sensitivity is another issue that has appeared in my 30’s. I’m focused on using products…

What Does it Mean to Invest in your Wardrobe?

What does it mean to invest in your wardrobe? I often hear high price-point items referred to as investment pieces. I get the reason why high price-point items are referred to as investment pieces though there isn’t always an equal return on value. When I purchase a luxury, designer, or high-end piece I expect to use it for multiple looks on repeat. (previous look here). These pieces are a long-term investment into my wardrobe and personal style. I like to have a mix of practical low price-point and high price-point items I can rotate through multiple looks. The investment is…

Sole Patches: Loving Your Shoes Pain Free

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen in love with a pair of shoes that hurt my feet. Sadly, most of those shoes end up in the love and leave it corner of my closet or hangout as decoration. I also can’t tell you how many times I’ve carried an extra pair of flats or rearranged my outfit and opted out of wearing the perfect shoe because I wanted to be comfortable. I recently tried these comfort inserts c/o of Sole Patches. If you’ve followed my blog for a bit you’ve probably caught on that I love supporting…

OzNaturals Vitamin C 20 Serum + Hyaluronic Acid

For the past few months my skin care routine has been heavily focused on anti-aging and skin improving benefits. I’ve tried several products lately which either focus on improving the surface of the skin or provide anti-aging benefits. I recently tried OZNaturals Vitamin C + Sea Hydration Mask c/o of OZNaturals. You can check out the post here. I’m currently using a second product from OZNaturals, the Vitamin C 20  + Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Some of my general skin concerns are dullness, fine lines, oily skin, and a few acne marks. One of my main skin care goals is to…

2016 End of Year Countdown

2016 year end countdown. That doesn’t even feel real. Wow, I can’t believe 2016 is almost over. I know everyone is saying that right now but seriously, I’m shocked. It doesn’t feel like that long ago I was counting down 2015. Also, the blog has turned 1 year old. Happy Birthday to The Every Day Mix! Time goes by so quick! Crazy! What happened in 2016?

Restyle: Dresses and OTK Boots

For the month of December, I challenged myself to restyle some of my favorite wardrobe pieces. Basically, I didn’t want to purchase new clothes and I thought it would be fun. Confession, I bought these boots. I love boots. I’ve loved boots since about 2004. I’m not going to say I knew how to style them properly all along, but I loved them. It was instant love when I spotted these. Internally, I was screaming – Get on my feet! Instantly, I thought about how I was going to restyle some of my favorite items with them. I often want…

The benefits are a reduction in redness, fine lines, and flaky skin. How…

Time is my Friend

Time is a topic I love to discuss. Probably because of my love for the past, vintage, and history. I’ve posted my thoughts on time before. Time is a tricky thing. Often I feel time flies by without warning. Time is here, and present. Then, time is gone. Some of the most precious moments of my life arrived and disappeared so quickly. Time past as though it was a blink of an eye. Time is a wonderful mix of beautiful, kind, and cruel. I’ve faced many heartaches and disappointments in my life. Through each of those struggles one thing remained…

Polished and Cozy

I don’t know how you feel about the cold but I for one have a love-hate relationship with it. When the season’s change, I love seeing the first snow but I hate being cold. I also tend to like fall/winter looks more than spring/summer looks. The part I don’t like, is when the air outside is so cold, it hurts my face. On cold mornings, I’m thinking about what will keep me warm more so than what looks nice. I’ve been on the hunt for mix and match pieces I can stay warm in while still remaining polished looking. I’ve…

Hello 34!

About a month ago I turned 34 years old. 34 is awesome, can’t even hide it. I can remember being in my 20’s and thinking – 30 is so old. I’d like to go back in time and smack my 20 something old self. My 30’s have been by far the best years of my life. I’m a woman and I feel like a full-grown woman more so today than any other time of my life. I feel strong, confident, sexy, and driven. I know what I want and what I don’t want in my life more so than ever…

The Perfect Oversized Sweater and Jeans

If there ever was a perfect sweater, it’s this sweater. Chunky, soft, a tad oversized, and longer in the back. Pinch me. I’m sure everyone has days where they just want to be comfy but still need to look decent. I’m having one of those days right here. I found this sweater at H&M after trying on tons of fluffy oversized sweaters. I was at my breaking point and my hair had so much static I got a little shock from everything I touched. Then love happened, and I found this green gem. So far I’ve paired this sweater with…
