As someone who adores accessories, I love coming across shops & online boutiques that I’m not familiar. I was recently introduced to MODERN MIX BOUTIQUE & it was basically love at first sight. Modern Mix Boutique was started in 2012 by a Canadian Lifestyle Blogger named Vanessa. One look at the products she offers on her website and you can tell she has been staying on top of the latest trends. From twine wrap bracelets to bold statement earrings to cuff bracelets – this online boutique has everything the Accessory Fashionista will need to pair with her favorite outfit. I think we can all appreciate a boutique with stylish accessories at an affordable price point.

Here are some of my favorite items from Modern Mix Boutique:

I was able to speak to Vanessa via e-mail and one of the questions I asked was about the pieces she chose and if she planned to bring other types of accessories to the Boutique.

“I chose to begin with jewellery and accessories on Modern Mix Boutique because it was so simple to put together a beautiful collection of products. For now, I’m focusing on gold-toned products because I love the way it matches with bright colours and jewel tones.  To keep our products exclusive, we only bring in a limited selection of pieces.  We carry earrings and bracelets so my customers don’t have to worry about fit and sizing which is often a concern for shopping online – earrings and bracelets are pretty much one size fits all! In the future I may bring in necklaces, rings and other accessories.”

This month’s BirchBox is: Red Carpet Ready

Here is what was in this month’s box.

  • Jouer – Matte Moisture Tint
  • Lancome – Hypnose Drama Mascara
  • Twistband – Thick Headband
  • Vasanti – Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
  • Ghirardelli Milk & Caramel Square

This is by far my favorite Ghiradelli Square flavor – the blend of chocolate and caramel is so rich! It didn’t stand a chance in my household and was gobbled up in seconds!

Hypnôse Drama Mascara by Lancome gives your lashes instant volume & boost with just a single coat. This mascara has an S-shaped curved brush and has intense black pigments for max volume and color. I personally love this mascara! Have you tried it? What are your thoughts?

I’m new to the Vasantoi brand and this is one of the things that makes me stick with Birchbox. I love finding out about brands I am unfamiliar with. Their website states this product will: Dramatically improve your skin’s texture to reveal softer, brighter and younger looking skin! Brightens with powerful papaya enzymes to give radiance, exfoliates with dermatologist grade micro-crystals and gently cleanses with aloe vera, coconut and panthenol. That all sounds good to me! I will have to do a full review after a few times of using the product.

Jouer Matte Moisture Tint is lightweight and that to me is the best quality in a beauty product. It also gives a very smooth finish and is a great alternative for when running out the house and you don’t want to have to put on a full face of makeup or throw foundation on.

I try so hard to like the Twistband products but they just fall short for me. Maybe it’s just the way my hair is but the smaller ones don’t hold my hair at all and the head band is just blah for me.

On Giving Birth: “Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life.”

On her split with her father as business manager:  “My soul has been tarnished. My father taught me so much about being a businesswoman,” she says. “And I’m understanding him a lot now. . . . A lot of the crazy things he did were necessary.”

On rumors of a fake pregnancy: “That was very odd. Who even thinks that? Like, who would make that up. . . . You can’t take it too seriously.”

Beyoncé says her new music “is a lot more sensual . . . empowering.” It celebrates being a wife and a mother, reflecting the obvious changes in her life. “Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body,” she says. “I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame.”

The President’s “better half”, as he says, looked absolutely stunning in a red Jason Wu gown at the Inaugural Ball.

Mrs. Obama also wore Jason Wu to the 2009 Inaugural Ball.

Looking back at various outfits, I think we can all agree that this First Lady is more than beauty & brains — she is a Fashion Icon!

Shoes – a Girl’s Best Friend!

Therefore when I came across ShoeDazzle’s e-mail this morning I was thrilled.
