About Ashley

Hello! Ashley here.

Thanks for visiting The Mixed Bag, a place on the internet, that I call my random place. The reason I created a blog back in 2013 was to have a place where I could simply create and share my thoughts. I never wanted to fall into just one category as a blogger, I just wanted a blog where I could simply just do whatever I wanted to do – free from a niche, free from the rules, and free from feeling like blogging was a hassle. I blog for fun and consider it a creative hobby! This isn’t my full time job, but a wonderful creative outlet for me!

I appreciate each opportunity that comes my way; from working with companies that align with my life, receiving samples of new collections, launches or products and even once and a while being compensated to talk about something I feel relates to my life (see disclosures for more on that) has been fun these past couple years and as long as it continues to be fun, I’m going to continue to do it!

I’m a bonafide makeup junkie, and some of my favorite posts are me just sharing my thoughts and perhaps even introducing someone else to a new brand of makeup. I hoard makeup and so joining others who feel the same way makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! Beyond makeup there are a couple other things I enjoy just as much – baking, watching Lifetime movies, creating a post that goes outside my box – aka learning something new, and being introduced to a brand spanking new brand! I also love to save money anyway I can, and shopping at the Dollar Tree plays a big part of that! 

In other news, I live with my boyfriend and our two boys and one sweet kitty named Beau in the grand ole state of Wisconsin, where I am pleasantly proud to be a Wisconsinite.
