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.

I’m wearing the eyeliner and lipstick from this box along with the newly launched cream Avon Glimmer Shadow in Peach Sapphire.  These are so easy to use and nice and neutral with a touch of glimmer.  PLUS they LAST ALL DAY!  I am shocked how well these stay put and look flawless hours later.

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You’re Hosting

What To Wear Thanksgiving When You're Hosting

What To Wear Thanksgiving When You’re Hosting

I don’t host Thanksgiving but I do host a Friendsgiving before the big turkey day! The difference between planning what to wear when your attending (see here) vs when you’re hosting is all about being strategic for function and time. We all know when you host, you are running around like a chicken with your head cut off, and getting ready is usually what suffers.

Festive and Functional

Festive and Functional

Word Of Alicia on what to wear:  Start the day off with solid black leggings, ones that are more like work out material than a knit.  That way they easily dust/wipe/lint roll off anything you get on them while prepping.  Wear a t-shirt during prep time then switch to a short sleeve party top as the time gets closer.   A short sleeve top because you don’t want to pushing your sleeves up while you are cooking and cleaning, and you’ll probably be warm from running around.

Tip: Start with a good base, quick and easy skincare with Avon Anew Hydrafusion Serum and Gel Cream

Tip: Start with a good base, quick and easy skincare with Avon Anew Hydrafusion Serum and Gel Cream

This year I’m all about that luxe velvet, so I’m suggesting the Avon Velvet Off The Shoulder Blouse.  You can still get this one by ordering direct from me or backordering it from campaign 23 (product #’s at the bottom of this post).  But I would also suggest the mark. Get Ruffled Up Top!

Tip: Use a scented body lotion straight out of the shower incase you never get around to perfuming before guests arrive

Tip: Use a scented body lotion straight out of the shower incase you never get around to perfuming before guests arrive

As the hostess you’ll be doing a lot of the work so bracelets and rings aren’t really functional, I suggest going with a statement necklace or earring.  I decided to wear with this a black velvet and crystal choker necklace with some crystal earrings.

Festive Friends

Festive Friends

I am a no shoes house so why would I wear shoes and break this rule?  I opted for a sparkly slipper instead!  Mine are from last year but Avon currently as some SUPER cute ones this year.  My last little trick is to go with your quick updo.  Keeps the hair out of the face while prepping but looks chic while hosting.

Hard at work on the handmade pasta!

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You’re Attending

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

Are you hosting or attending a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If you are an easy going attendee then picking out an outfit is a little more fun and less strategic. My suggestion, the ever so popular sweater dress! It looks polished, put together but is oh so cozy and comfy. My pick is the Avon Elena Sweater Dress.

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Why is the Elena Sweater Dress my pick?  Well, first off its black so instantly chic, and flattering. Its also a straight fitting shape, not tight so you can eat and sit and lounge and still be totally fine.  Like I said, it’s cozy and comfy and that’s what fall is all about!  It’s also $39.99 so super affordable.

Cute and Comfy Sweater Dress

Embellished Details

Plus the Elena Sweater Dress comes pre-glammed with these fun rhinestone details.  No necklace required!  Just layer on some cute bracelets like these Avon Pearly Jet Stretch Bracelets.  I also added the Avon Sterling Silver Onyx rings for a little more glam.

To make it holiday ready I really like it paired with these Marc Fisher red booties and red plaid bag from Guess.  Of course it needed to be paired with a mega shiny red lip, the mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Glamour.  What I like about the lip paint for Thanksgiving is it has some serious staying power and is a bright red.

Matte Navy Lips for Halloween!

Matte Navy Lips for Halloween!

Word of Alicia:  This navy shade has just enough purple in it to be kinda flattering and wearable.  On dark skin tones they could wear it as an everyday deep lip shade.  Fair like me, its more of a certain circumstances kind of gig.  But I’ll tell ya, its super comfortable to wear, not drying like most mattes and lasts!  It’s just the perfect shade for Halloween!  You can get it in time for Halloween over at the eBoutique.

God Save The Queen

God Save The Queen

I have 5 ways to save the queen… and by save the queen I mean wear this on-trend graphic tee! This mark. God Save the Queen tee features a stretchy semi fitted heather grey tee with black embellished Queen silhouette.  For Wear and Share Wednesday here’s 5 ways we’re wearing this tee!

1. Casual Chic with Millennial Pink

Word Yo!  My look in the tee

Alicia Saves The Queen!  

For a casual chic look that works on warmer days I paired the tee with a casual lace up skirt in millennial pink (Express) and some embelished slides Express).  I also added my favorite statement earrings the Avon Cafe Chic Tassel Earrings.

2.  Jeans and a Tee

Sheray Saves The Queen

Sheray Saves The Queen

Sheray’s jeans and tee look is way more fun with the embellishment on this tee and her funky Avon Modern Geo Statement Necklace.  I just LOVE the pairing for a fun take on the oh so easy to wear, jeans and tee combo.

3.  Boots and Denim Jacket

Ann Save's The Queen

Ann Saves The Queen

Ann sports every girl’s fall uniform, boots and a denim jacket.  Pairing this combo over the God Save the Queen Tee keeps you seasonal and functional.  Also currently available, her jacket:  mark. Nomad Denim Jacket;  and boots:  Avon Cushion Walk Buckled Riding Boot

4.  Casually Glam

Natasha Saves The Queen

Natasha Saves The Queen

Natasha casually glams up her tee with a pair of statement earrings (mark. Primrose Pearl Dangle Earrings) and a glam red lip!  Just like Natasha, this look is so casually glam, and mega wearable!

5.  Back In Black

Nevonda Saves The Queen

Nevonda Saves The Queen

Nevonda channels her dark queen by pairing it with all black.  Black jeans, black boots, black tote all with a little interest to make things, well, interesting.

Yaassss Queen*

*note I hate that phrase but oh so fitting and trendy, you know, like this trendy fitted t-shirt…

When your birthday falls on a Thursday that means you celebrate all weekend long. Which also means Monday following birthday weekend is rough. For a non-milestone birthday, with last minute plans and most my family not in town it actually turned out to be quite a fun weekend. It all started with fun birthday pants! mark. Gilded Glamour Wide Leg Pants to be exact.

I opted for the gold pants for birthday OOTD because they would work for desk through dinner.  Instead of wearing the typical party dress, why not wear some party pants!?  I see these being equally as chic come holiday season and for when you want to be comfortable but fancy.  They made quite a statement without being too over the top.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I received!  Plus, I’ve seen this metallic fabric all over the place this fall as a huge trend.
