Nailed It: Jamberry Night Sky

20180302_172151.jpg

Mani Monday and I finally feel human again. I had bare nails for weeks, so finally getting a pedi and busting out a Jamberry wrap on the mani, all is right in the world once again!

I felt like doing nail wraps and these Night Sky wraps were calling my name! Sparkly mixed mani in cool icy tones, sign me up!

We have been having a cold spell in Nor Cal so these icy tones are oh so needed. And so is this scarf that’s my back drop. Its actually the signature print from the mark. Rebel Ice collection. Fun fact: If you bought the bath and body line its the print on the packaging!

I also just got these sterling silver rings in from Avon, and thought the complimented the wraps so well! Yes, Avon does have a line of fine jewelry, yes these rings are new and available, yes they include genuine stones, and yes you need them! The fine jewelry also starts at a size 5! I am wearing the Classic Peak Band (sale price $16.99) stacked with the Blue Topaz with Cluster Halo ring (sale price $34.99).

You can shop my rings and check out Avon’s fine jewelry new arrivals at my eBoutique. Message me if your interested in Jamberry nail wraps! I’m always looking for someone to go halfsies 😉

This microsuede jacket is a lightweight jacket that easily can be worn across the seasons.  I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on this guy!  And its seen some good use this fall/winter!  It is well worth the $49.99!

For an easy look I’m wearing mine with destructed denim (Old Navy), a black turtleneck (Guess), some grey booties (mark. Well Heeled Booties also on clearance for $29.99 at my eBoutique) and a statement necklace (mark. Tough It Out Necklace, last seen here).

Valentine’s Outfit Idea That’s Not A Dress

Valentine's Outfit That's Not A Dress

Valentine’s Outfit That’s Not A Dress

This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday.  So if you have plans on the actual day, then most likely you’ll be going to work first, so a date night dress probably isn’t the best option on a cold February day.  For a Valentine’s Day outfit that’s not a dress, try a pair of statement pants!  I’m personally loving the Avon Ashley Wide Leg Pant.

Ashley Wide Leg Pants

Ashley Wide Leg Pants

These wide leg pinstripe pants are kinda perfect for a date night.  They’re a little take notice, flatter the figure and a lot of comfortable.  You can easily style them for work with a simple white turtleneck (Avon Sloan Turtleneck in White).  If you wanted something a little more for date night try a black lace blouse or put a corset over your turtleneck which is really trendy right now.  Even pairing a slinky cami with a cardigan would be great for a day to night look.

Statement Wide Leg

Dress up your look for Valentine’s Day with some date night jewelry!  This ravishing red collection from Avon looks way more spendy than it is!  I like how classy it looks but yet sparkly and fun for a date.  I’m wearing the drop earrings, necklace, tennis bracelet also layered with this super cute XOXO pave bracelet.  I just LOVE the jewelry offerings this year from Avon.  They did the cutest pieces that add just the right amount of fun.

I love a good work tote and this reversible one from Coach fits my work needs perfectly.  I also like it for a Valentine’s Day work look because its my 3rd wedding anniversary present, the year of leather.

You can shop the entire Valentine’s Day collection at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.  For my pants and turtleneck you’ll have to backorder.  To do that, at the top right click “Product #”, scroll to the bottom of the page and where it has the search option type in “ashley wide leg pant” or “sloan turtleneck” and select campaign 3.  Your available size options should pop up.  Select the one you want then add to cart.  If you have any trouble please reach out to me and I can assist.

Trending Tuesday: Lots To Love

Lots To Love

Lots To Love

If the world of alicia was the internet #lotstolove would totally be trending. Lots To Love is the title of the newest Avon flyer targeting Valentine’s Day. In the world of Alicia, I’m just OBSESSING over it. I just LOVE these images and have me inspired for not just Valentine’s Day, but for my January, February, awards season, and beyond!

 

Makeup Looks To Love:

Sultry and Stunning

Sultry and Stunning

First thing that has me smitten is the stunning beauty looks featured.  Super simple clean skin, simple eye, LOTS of lashes, red lips and silver nails.  This looks so sultry with the strapless look, really letting those stunning jewelry pieces take the stage, but just as easily works more casual.  I NEED to recreate this look.

Casual and Confident

Beauty Gifts To Love:

Darling Ring Dishes

Darling Ring Dishes

This year’s giftable collection is too cute to boot!  Between the darling ring trays, the fun graphic lip prints, and the mix match appeal, I’m smitten!  The ring trays would be super cute for a candy dish at my desk at work!  I love to theme out my life so a pair of Valentine’s Day PJ’s is kind of a must!

This Lots To Love flyer definitely has given me lots to love!  It’s funny how a retailer’s flyer/ad/campaign can really create a lot of inspiration.  I’ve definitely been letting my jewelry be the statement of my look and piling on the Big and Daring mascara!  You can shop the entire collection at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and add on that Eye Love You A box to bring it full circle! For some more inspiration here’s the entire Lots To Love flyer for your eyes!

Apres Ski: Ski Prints

Apres Ski:  Ski Prints

Apres Ski: Ski Prints

Winter has me currently crushing on all things apres ski (as seen here). With my upcoming winter weekend trip I’m planning and pinning so many ski prints. Ski prints range from fair isle to plaid and everything in-between. Basically, all you winter favorites fit for a chalet!

Avon Zoey Knit Vest

Avon Zoey Knit Vest

I picked up this Avon Zoey Knit Vest from the Southwest Capsule Collection.  It technically is an Aztec print, but by pairing it with winter pieces it reads ski print.  It all comes from native prints which are all very similar.

Wrap Belt Tied In The Back!

Wrap Belt Tied In The Back!

For winter wear, I layered the Avon Zoey Knit Vest and tied the wrap belt in the back so it give is a little different shape.  Layering over a black turtleneck, Avon Sloan Turtleneck in black, lets the vest be the statement piece.

Layer A Knit Vest For Winter Wear

It wouldn’t be winter wear without some boots!  These glossy black Hunter boots are staples for me in the winter.  I find them be so comfortable and they work better than any boot to keep out the wet, plus they are fashion friendly!

Winter Staple:  Hunter Boots

Even though I am in mild weathered California, I still find a need for warm winter pieces.  Especially for weekend trips to snowy Tahoe!  Which is why I’m super excited of my pearl embellished knit hat find from Charming Charlie!  Perfect winter piece to go with a casual winter look.

Peal Hats and Statement Earrings

Apres Ski is by definition the party after skiing, so what makes this look more apres ski than a sparkly statement earring!? This Avon Looped Linear Earrings glams up an otherwise super causal and functional outfit.

I think I definitely found a good look to pack for my Tahoe weekend, along with wearing it all winter long!  You can get my vest, turtleneck and earrings at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger which would also qualify you for the newest A Box!  (see more here).

APRÈS SKI PART DEUX

With all the winter weather, snow days and cold its time to embrace the cozy.  Cozy with a little luxe, that’s what apres ski is all about.  You might recall my last inspo post from last January (see here) but this time around I’m back with more!  Even if a luxe winter weekend isn’t in your plans you can at least dress like it is!  Here are some things to embrace for that apres ski life:

Vests:

Ski Prints:

Cozy Knits:

I have an upcoming weekend getaway to Tahoe at the end of the month so I’ll be planning on how to apply this apres ski inspo to some weekend wear!  See more of my pinsperation at http://www.pinterest.com/ach167/apresski

Buffalo Plaid, Feathers, and Red Lips

Only 6 days until Christmas, and another festive mani Monday down!  I’m feeling the festive spirit with finding a way to bring a little red, green and glam to my everyday.  Today’s festive is a buffalo plaid mixed mani, feather necklace and a classic red lip!

Julep and Jamberry

For my buffalo plaid mixed mani I started with Friday Flannel nail wrap from Jamberry on my ring.  I then used Julep polishes to do my black and gold nails.  Once it dried I drew the line down the side of my ring and middle with that same gold and then cleaned up around the nail.  This really matched a lot of my festive red and green outfits I’ve been wearing lately, like this feather and red lip look!

mark. So Fly Necklace In Full Sun

The mark. So Fly Necklace with its black feather, hematite metal and gemstone details is a really fun piece for the holidays.  I paired mine over this off the shoulder sweater (WHBM) and a black and white wool plaid skirt (Nordstroms).
