Wear and Share Wednesday: Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is May 12th incase you were wondering. If you still need some ideas Wear and Share Wednesday has got you! Heather from Hopelessy Heather is back and ready to share with you a look at the Limted Edition Iconic Avon Collection.  I let you in on the 1967 inspiration on this Limited Collection but there’s more to the Mother’s Day Shop.

Alicia’s Picks:

Word Yo!

Word Yo!

Mother’s Day is all about appreciating the beauty in MOM.  (and I’m going to use all caps there because my Mom always writes it out that way, as that’s now she was taught — I think during her shorthand days — google shorthand if you don’t know that that is).  I always like beauty gifts for these kind of gift giving opportunities.  They are personal, as you’re picking out something you think she would like, flatter her.  They’re extremely useable and something Mom doesn’t really treat herself to all the time.

The Mother’s Day beauty selections are really wearable, practical and pretty.  The packaging is extremely giftable, you could just tie them up in a bow and give!  The actual item’s design are really pretty too, and they all mix and match to create a perfect little bundle/gift set.

I selected my top picks here and look how pretty they all are bundled together.  The Iconic Avon Blooming Blush Palette is the star of the show.  Substantial in size, weight, and product amount is worth far more then the $9.99 its going for.  The formula is spot on as well.  VERY wearable shades and who doesn’t want a healthy flush!?  Here I’m wearing the pink shade and you can see how healthy it looks! (also wearing the peachy/coral shade in this post)

Bundled along side are a few lip products, the Iconic Avon Lipstick in Natural Shimmer, the Mom’s The Balm Lip Balm in Melon and the Iconic Avon Blooms & Kisses Lip Gloss.  These three all stand on their own or paired together.  The Iconic Avon Lipsticks are in those classic metal lipstick tubes that are so fancy and feel so luxe.  In these pics I’m wearing the Blooms & Kisses Gloss in Lively Violet and let me tell you how pigmented and long lasting this little guy is… and at $4.99!  Also shown, the Iconic Avon Pearly Earrings (see Heather’s picks below for more details!)

Finally, fragrance!  Not only did Avon launch a pretty new spring scent, Flourish Honey Blossom, we also have some gift sets released for Mother’s Day.  I JUST LOVE the gingham design, marrying perfectly with the other beauty products.  Giftsets available in Velvet (shown here) and Haiku including a full size fragrance, body lotion and travel size mist.

Heather’s Picks:

“On Mother’s Day we show the mother figures in our lives how much we love and appreciate them – and Avon has released the perfect vintage inspired jewelry line that includes a heart brooch, pearly earrings, a dangling charms bracelet, a pearly ring and a pendant watch necklace.  All the above are absolutely stunning in traditional gold settings and would make killer gifts for your wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt or other mom you want to celebrate. Make it twice as nice by getting your favorite ladies matching pieces and present them at the same time.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the brooch, earrings and watch necklace.  The brooch is hefty and features gorgeous scroll work with some sparkly bits sprinkled on top.  Brooches make great additions to hats, coats, scarves, tops and even as hair decorations.  The earrings show off two beautiful pearls in a leafy bed of gold that simply delights.  The watch necklace features an incredibly long chain and a sturdy watch pendant – the chain could be wound around a wrist instead of worn around a neck or the pendant could be removed from the chain altogether to attach a clip assembly and tack it to a handbag, keychain or tons of other places!” – Heather

Heather styled these vintage inspired pieces perfectly with her vintage inspired look.  Excuse me while I go grab a scarf to look as adorable as she does in her neck scarf.  Classic pieces make excellent giftables… even as a gift for yourself!

Iconic 1967

1967 – an Iconic year!  If you didn’t know, the 60’s are kinda my spirit animal.  I love the fashion, the looks, the music, the spirit, just dig it all.  Maybe it has a little to do with my parents who were newlyweds and new parents at the age of 20.  I just loved looking at those vintage family pictures, spurred my infatuation.  When Avon showcased their Iconic Avon collection for Mother’s Day featuring inspiration from vintage Avon from 1967, I already knew I would be smitten!  Let’s take a look at that Iconic 1967 in some snapshots of the year, vintage Avon ads and to help feel the spirit of the 60’s I recreated a few of these Iconic 1967 looks!

1967 History Snapshot:  A little history, in 1967 we had the world’s first heart transplant and the first ATM!  The music scene was strong with Monterey International Pop Music Festival.  Times were shaken with strikes by US teaching staff throughout country for pay increases and with the Six Day War and Arab Forces attack Israel beginning the Yom Kippur War.   And have to note the first Super Bowl was played between Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs!

LOVING this A Box for Spring!

Word on the Spring Essentials A Box:  Neutrals are a huge trend in beauty for spring so a neutral lip, and a fun eyeliner over a neutral eye shade are just the wear-everyday-essentials you need to spring into the new season.  I was expecting a dark brown lip color but Brown Sugar is really wearable.  The hit of this A Box is the travel size perfume, its the PERFECT size to take along in your bag and for travel and updating to a spring scent is just what the dr ordered!  It instantly transports me to a spring frame of mind and I just love the brightness to the scent.

Roasted Chestnut Swatch

Roasted Chestnut Swatch

Word on Roasted Chestnut:  This is one of the newly released shades in the line that I picked up during the sale last campaign.  I was expecting this to be a darker brown shade but its actually a very wearable deeper nude.  It’s more flattering than a “foundation” nude color and goes with pretty much any color you’re wearing and will work year round.  Works especially well with spring florals.  😉
