Week O’Nautical – Little Red Dress

Week O'Nautical - Little Red Dress

Week O’Nautical – Little Red Dress

Week O’Nautical is here for the short work week!  I’m counting down to the long weekend by theme-ing out my life in all things red white and blue with a loose – and I do mean loose – nautical vibe.  Last time, Memorial Week O’Nautical was all about the blues, but this 4th of July week we’re all about the red! Starting it all off with a Little Red Dress!

Red Dress For A Short Work Week

Little Red Dress – the Avon Myrna Dress

This little red dress was from the spring release via Avon which you might of seen me share on IG, but from the moment I ordered it I had nothing but Week O’Nautical OOTD thoughts on it.  A good red dress is a must in my closet.  I like this one because its off the shoulder which I love, even if I have to layer it with a bodysuit.  Its also lightweight, stretchy, kinda loose, kinda fitted and packable so perfect for summer trips!

Red White and Blue Wear To Work

Red White and Blue Wear To Work

For work I paired this with some nautical block heeled sandals (last seen here), a gold cuff and white hoop earrings all from Avon.  My bag is my new summer bag! I scored on a good deal on it at Marshall’s.  This Michael Kors metallic gold canvas bag with rope straps is the PERFECT for Week O’Nautical bag!  This is such a great summer work bag and I’m very pleased I found this gem.

I of course had to pair this look with the Avon Little Red Dress Fragrance.  I mean, I said I LOVE a theme right!?   Plus, Little Red Dress Fragrance Line is on sale too during the Semi Annual Sale going on over at the eBoutique.  I love all the summer sales that go on this weekend!  If you haven’t already checked out my eBoutique be sure to follow me on IG (@wordofalicia) where I’m highlighting my pick of the day’s and some killer deals.  Plus, building fantasy carts gets you through these few short days before our long holiday weekend!

Let’s Be Mermaids

 Let's Be Mermaids

Let’s Be Mermaids

It’s August! And birthday month!  So what’s a better way to celebrate than with my current favorites!  Summer is the perfect time to be a mermaid; beach waves, beach bums, and vitamin sea.  I haven’t made it to the sea (but I am headed to the lake this weekend!) so I need to channel my inner mermaid with Bath and Body Works Sea-Tox.  This bath and body line is and has been my new all time favorite from Bath and Body Works.  It smells exactly like the scent they pumped into the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas, so it immediately takes me back.

Bath and Body Works Sea-Tox

Bath and Body Works Sea-Tox

Sea-Tox:  A mermaid-approved blend of soft sea breeze, salty ocean waves & crisp aquatic florals.  Currently available in a body cream, body lotion, body polish, all over mist and sheet mask.

Available in a range of products

Available in a range of products

Word Of Alicia:  I’ve been so obsessed with this collection that I’ve gone back and rebought it 3 times this summer.  The beach wave foam is wonderful but now sold out.  My top pick would be the body cream, the scent lasts all day and keeps you moisturized.  But honestly need the shower gel, lotion and spray, its that good.  I would call it more of a clean beachy scent, not a typical coconut beachy scent.  Honestly, just get it, it’s amazing.

Word Of Alicia:  I absolutely am obsessed.  When I first smelled the rub your wrist here sample in the book I was like eh, but once I received the bottle and actually put it on I was like wow this is nice!  It’s not something I would typically pick out, it’s warm and a little more sophisticated, but the floral notes are so so so good.  It definitely is a year round scent but switching to this for fall seemed right with a cozier scent.  I really love the packaging too.  It’s just fun!  Wearing this scent I just feel more put together and sensual, and honestly I just love smelling it!  I don’t think the staying power is amazing unless you layer the lotion and shower gel with it, but I don’t mind reapplying mid day because I just LOVE that top note!

Word Of Alicia:  This has to be one of my absolute favorite fragrances released by Avon/mark.!  And that says a lot because there’s been some really really good ones.  I think this smells sophisticated but still clean and sparkling.  It works day or night and the staying power is pretty good.  I liked the original Luck but wasn’t in love with it to buy it again, but this one I’ll stock up on.

#yachtlife!  The scene set by Maria Sharapova for the look and feel of this campaign makes me wish that was a hashtag I actually use.  Until my nonexistent yacht life changes I’ll just have to feel like I’m there with this pretty perfume,  it’s pretty quilted bottle topped with a bow, and sport some luxe white and gold looks.

It's as luxe as it's quilted bottle would suggest!

Obsession Alert: Avon Senses Starfruit and Coconut

Obsession Alert: Avon Senses Starfruit and Coconut

Obsession Alert: Avon Senses Starfruit and Coconut

You know what I’ve been obsessed with lately, Avon Senses Body Care in Starfruit and Coconut. Seriously this scent is so amazing I want to smell it all day every day!  I usually don’t buy Avon Senses because I’m more of a body cream kind of person (mark. Whipped Up I’m talking to you) but when I saw this coconut scent launching I was like well I’ll give it a try!  ESPECIALLY at the price!

Starfruit and Coconut Body Lotion

Starfruit and Coconut Body Lotion

About the scent:  Let your senses get swept away by the island breeze…with clean, crisp notes of sparkling starfruit, refreshing coconut water and an accent of rich musk. Enhanced with vitamins C and E. 

To me this has a really clean citrus scent that the coconut just warms it up enough.  This is more of an everyday kind of coconut scent not the beachy coconut scent.  I personally like it better than mark.’s Crusing on Coconut which is heavier and warmer.

Starfruit and Coconut Shower Gel

Starfruit and Coconut Shower Gel

About the product:  For ONLY $9.99 you can get the Avon Senses bundle including:  A $30 value, the collection includes:
• 2 Avon Senses Starfruit & Coconut Hydrating Shower Gels – leaves skin cleansed and conditioned. Each, 5 fl. oz. a $6 value
• Avon Senses Starfruit & Coconut Body Lotion – creamy formula, with 30-hour moisture. With vitamins and shea butter, leaves skin looking healthy and feeling velvety smooth. 8.4 fl. oz. a $8 value
• Avon Senses Starfruit & Coconut Body Spray – spritz on lightly scented mist infused with coconut water extract any time for an allover refreshing feel throughout the day. 8.4 fl. oz. a $10 value

Starfruit and Coconut Body Spray

Starfruit and Coconut Body Spray

Like I said, I’m more of a body cream person and I never use body sprays, but the shower gels I like, so why not.  Well I’ve been using the lotion and its actually pretty moisturizing!  Actually really great for these summer months.  Body spray, yep been using that too!  Layering them is key for keeping the scent and since I’m OBSESSED over this scent I’ve been using the spray like it’s the 6th grade!

Avon Senses Body Care in Starfruit and Coconut

Avon Senses Body Care in Starfruit and Coconut

You can shop the Avon Senses collections at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger including this 4 pack set for only $9.99!  In addition to the best summer scent ever, there’s a ton of other scents at really killer prices too.  I really like the Cherry Blossom scent too (see here).  I really can’t get over how much I love this one… think I’ll go put some lotion on right now!
