Amixofthings is a blog/online mag hybrid. We don’t completely consider our site as a ‘blog’ because we don’t just post hi-res res pictures of pretty things. We love written content and that’s what we deliver. We tend to geek out about food, fashion and other random things.. We love New York and we geek out about it too. We support local events and we endorse independent startups. Our goal is to provide readers with entertaining original material.
