Haiku Inspired Order Idea

Haiku Inspired Order Idea

“Find your Zen with the Haiku Collection. ¬†The calming and clean notes of Haiku Eau de Parfum bloom in harmony to create a fresh floral that evokes the serenity of a Japanese garden.”¬† To match this Japanese calming zen vibe I would build an order featuring trendy K Beauty, self-care staples, and some fun new beauty to excite. ¬†Avon Glimmershadow in Jade (seen here) is a pale green shade that would be super fun for the holidays especially paired with the rest of the beauty in this order. ¬†The A Box this campaign features a pretty pink lip shade that would wear really nice with Jade, in addition to a basic black liner and mascara and a fun exclusive choker necklace (seen here). ¬†With our collaboration with The Face Shop I would add in some K Beauty and Skincare with the trendy cushion highlighter and Rice Water Foaming Face Wash (personal favorite and great value!). ¬†To finish off the bundle I’d add in the matching Haiku Skin Softener (cross between a body lotion and a body cream) and a triple wick candle in Serenity (clearance price of only $9.99!). ¬†For $53.97 you are getting $131.99 worth of product!¬†I would definitely like to receive this haul on Christmas morning, I’ll tell you that! ¬†Just put all these items together in a decorative box, tie up with a pretty ribbon, and you’re all set for gift giving.

Experience more holiday, let me be your personal shopper!

If you like this idea, but would rather do a different candle or more K-Beauty items, modify it at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger but remember this Haiku offer is only good for today so act quick. ¬†OR – let me be your personal shopper! ¬†I can get this order together for your, wrap it expertly, and send to your recipient. ¬†If you want to switch out some items, I can make some other suggestions, either way utilize me as your personal shopper, I’m free. ¬†That’s free suggestions and order building, free gift wrapping, free holiday card to go along with it and you don’t have to deal with post office! ¬† ¬†Just hit me up! ¬†(aliciahess1 @ gmail.com) or DM me (wordofalicia on instagram) or leave a comment on this post and I’ll get back to you!

Nothing solidifies the start of the holiday season like a Starbucks Red Cup! I most certainly got my Peppermint Hot Chocolate so I could get the free re-useable cup. Hashtag basic and I’m totes ok with it!

It may be too hot for flannel and a hot chocolate but I’m really good at pretending. ¬†Also It’s Nov 7th it really should be cool enough for a flannel shirt. ¬†I mean really Nor Cal, get it together. ¬†Regardless I wanted those holiday vibes and I’m kinda obsessing over black watch plaid and this statement necklace so the two of them together is kinda obsession overload.

My Favorite Fall Outfit

My Favorite Fall Outfit

My Favorite Fall Outfit

Hello November! Halloween is always the switch here in Nor Cal. It’s now for sure fall. Seriously last week I was so hot I still had to pull my sleeveless tops out again. However, it did lead me to my favorite fall outfit. This combo from Banana Republic Factory: ¬†Sweater dress + Felt Hat + Ruana + Mules

Banana Republic Factory Ribbed Midi Sweater Dress

Banana Republic Factory Ribbed Midi Sweater Dress

This ribbed sleeveless midi dress is so easy to wear for fall. ¬†It’s comfortable, flattering, the perfect weight and extremely versatile. ¬†A few fall accessories and I have my perfect fall look. ¬†I liked it so much that I got it in both black and tan! ¬†Both are the perfect fall colors. ¬†*sidenote I’m linking the petite but I’m wearing a regular.

Pop of Plaid with a reversible poncho from BR Factory

What makes this look so fall friendly are the accessories. ¬†The hat is from Amazon, which for the price, an excellent find and its adjustable to fit multiple head sizes. ¬†The ruana, or poncho as they call it, is from Banana Republic Factory too. ¬†It is the perfect combination of fall neutrals in a plaid which reverses to my favorite print, black and white houndstooth. ¬†It’s also so soft and cozy so as weather transitions, or for cooler mornings, or cooler offices, this guy was my GO-TO in Sept and Oct. ¬†I liked it so much I might of got a few for gifts. Actually, this ruana and felt hat combo would make and excellent pairing for a Christmas gift. ¬†Especially for someone you really don’t know their size in clothes but you still want to get them something fashionable.

Dynamic duo for fall - and a great gift idea!

Lip of The Day – errr season – Delicate Date

This has been my favorite fall outfit, not only this black version but also in the tan. ¬†I wear the same accessories and just reverse the ruana for a completely new look! ¬†You could definitely warm this up for cooler temps with a denim jacket, cozy cardigan sweater, or even a turtleneck underneath the dress. ¬†The ruana/poncho is really warm too so if you belted it and treated it more like a cardigan sweater you’d be plenty warm. ¬†Also, instead of mules switch into your favorite tall boots and done! ¬†I’ll be wearing this all fall and winter I’m sure.

The Fall Layering Trend: Necklace Edition

The Fall Layering Trend: Necklace Edition

The Fall Layering Trend: Necklace Edition

We all know that fall is the perfect time for layering… cool mornings, warm afternoons, and all. But what about layering your jewelry!? Layered necklaces is a huge trend this fall so Heather from Hopelessly Heather and I have brought you our tips and tricks on nailing this layered look this fall.

 

Alicia’s Tips and Tricks:

Layering Coin Necklaces

Layering Coin Necklaces

Move over big statement necklaces because layered necklaces are the trend! ¬†You can still get maximum impact with a more casual vibe. ¬†Take a trendy necklace, like these coin necklaces in different metal tones, and pendant details, and layer them together. ¬†I really like these Avon Sacred Coin Necklaces because they have adjustable chains so you really can get whatever length you want out of them. ¬†A nice rule of thumb when layering is go with 3. ¬†Don’t be super perfect on the layers, go for 2 that are closer together and one longer. ¬†Coin jewelry is really hot right now so its just the right trend to layer with.

Heather’s Tips and Tricks:

Layering Necklaces Tips from Heather

Layering Necklaces Tips from Heather

Layering doesn‚Äôt have to be a mystery‚ÄĒuse pre-existing layered necklaces as a base and build around them! ¬†Avon makes it super easy by creating collections containing necklaces of varying lengths and, lately, including layered necklaces‚ÄĒbut don‚Äôt think you have to stick to pieces within the same collection for them to work well together as layering pieces. ¬†You really only need one common element (e.g., pearls, silver, gold, beads, CZs, etc.) to make layering work. ¬†Not only is it fun and easy to do, it can also breathe new life into your existing pieces!

Mani Monday: Essie Fall 2019

It’s officially sweater weather with six limited edition nail polishes from Essie with the fall 2019 collection. ¬†“It‚Äôs time to get back to your roots and explore the home grown countryside with the essie fall 2019 collection of six autumn nail polish shades. As the leaves begin to fall and the outside air becomes crisp ‚Äď it‚Äôs official, it‚Äôs sweater weather. These limited edition nail polish shades are guaranteed to leave you on the bright cider.”

Essie Fall 2019 Collection

Essie Fall 2019 Collection

Essie is one of my favorite nail brands partly because they do really good seasonal collections. ¬†They build a color story that really represents a feeling, trend, season! ¬†Because of that I decided to google the fall collection 2019 and I barely found any IRL’s, swatches, etc and I was a little shocked. ¬†The ones I did find convinced me to head over to CVS and see what they had. ¬†I intended only to pick up one shade but after seeing the colors, the theme, the names I couldn’t leave without at least 3.

My top picks:  Hay There, Sweater Weather, On The Bright Cider

My top picks: Hay There, Sweater Weather, On The Bright Cider

The top 3 I picked were 3 colors I definiltey did not already have in my collection.  Hay There, a fall yellow, caught my eye first.  Its a perfect color to transition with.  On The Bright Cider, the color of apple cider, became a must-have for my Apple Hill fall outings.  Sweater Weather, a metallic green, which is the most out of my norm.  It was also the last bottle in this color at the store and from the reviews I read it was the one that everyone liked best so I grabbed it too.

With those names how can you not pick up one... or three!?

These 3 shades were my September mani colors. ¬†Usually I stick to my pinks, berries, reds but I’m glad I got something out of my comfort zone. ¬†Sweater Weather got the most compliments from strangers haha. ¬†Its kinda alien, kinda fall, kinda shimmery. ¬†I see Sweater Weather being a really fun color for Halloween too! ¬†These 3, well the whole collection really, go so well with the fall trends… menswear, 70’s vibe, plaids, neutrals, marigold, denim…¬†Now the question is do I need the other 3 shades from this collection!? ¬†I really like the other three for all my other fall activities, visit to the pumpkin patch, friendsgiving, regular Thanksgiving, etc. ¬†I think I just answered my own question ūüėČ

I know I say that about all the A Boxes but they REALLY have upped the game and its staying that way through the rest of the year.  Warm Sunrise is a user favorite, its just the perfect warm toned neutrals that work for all skin tones.  You can create a basic or dramatic look.  The Olive Glimmerstick is so unique but looks stunning on!  And because its not a harsh black it really works for everyone, even the makeup novice.  Can we just talk about these earrings, how unique for Avon and even better that multi-faceted glimmer!  $10 for all the fall trends, DONE!

Wear and Share Wednesday: A Touch of Fall

Fact: ¬†It’s still officially summer. ¬†The first day of fall isn’t until Monday, and it’s still going to be 90 degrees this weekend so even if I want to embrace fall early, it’s really only a touch of fall. ¬†I think I’m so tired of the same sundresses I’ve been wearing all summer so I’m ready for a wardrobe refresh, even if its just a touch. ¬†I have done some great back to school shopping and picked up a bunch of fall 2019 trends, but I can’t quite wear them all yet, so I need to add in a touch of fall where I can.

A touch of fall with camel accessories!

A touch of fall with camel accessories!

I achieved a touch of fall with camel accessories! ¬†This fall color is not only classic but neutral and really anchors my LWD. ¬† I’ve known I wanted a camel tote as my fall bag since the spring but I haven’t been able to find one until last week! ¬†I scored this clearance find at TJ Maxx and it was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

New fall bag of my dreams!

New fall bag of my dreams!

Lucky for me my camel and tortoise double ring belt from Express came in right at the same time and nothing is better than matching your belt to your bag.  This white dress is from my Express Style Trial box and belting it gave it just the touch of fall I was craving.  Plus this LWD is really well made, lined and the perfect quality for transitioning from summer to fall.

LWD gets the fall treatment!

LWD gets the fall treatment!

You know what also arrived at the same time as my belt and new bag purchase… my Avon order! ¬†Which included this beautiful camel faux leather strap watch and this leaf bracelet that look amazing stacked together. ¬†I had this bag/watch combo going in my dreams since I saw this watch in person at our conference 6 weeks ago! ¬†These two are launching soon but as a rep I get them a few weeks early.

Obsessories!

Obsessories!

I’ve been obsessed with these white slides from Shoedazzle. ¬†They actually have a camel sole so they work perfectly for this late summer look. ¬†As we head more into fall and it drops down to the 70s ūüėČ I can switch out these slides for these snakeskin booties and I have an even deeper fall look. You can already see how I’m working in these booties and that animal print trend for late summer in my last post (see here).

Obsession + Accessories = Obsessories

Obsession + Accessories = Obsessories

21 Days of Beauty at Ulta

21 Days of Beauty at Ulta

21 Days of Beauty at Ulta

One can not live on Avon alone. ¬†Even though I could challenge that, but confessions of a product junkie, I shop around. ¬†Usually I don’t pay much attention to the 21 Days of Beauty Event at Ulta but I’m going through a little Ulta obsession right now and there are some KILLER deals in this event. ¬†Its half way over but some of the best deals are yet to come!

Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Daily Deals

Everyone blogs/IG’s about the Sephora VIB event but honestly I kinda like Ulta better. ¬†I like more bang for my buck, having more options, and up until a yr ago Ulta was just closer and more convenient. ¬†What I hated about Ulta was the checkout line, it is always so long and takes forever… BUT now they added buy online pick up in store and LIFE IS CHANGED. ¬†I shopped the Beauty Event last weekend and here are a few tips I discovered.

My Ulta Birthday Haul

My Ulta Birthday Haul

Buy Online Pickup In Store: ¬†This will depend on your location. ¬†I did this and for the most part it was AMAZING. ¬†I got my weekend deals without dealing with the weekend crowd. ¬†HOWEVER I did not get the matte eye pallet I ordered. ¬†For the daily deals they got a memo that they are not allowed to pull the online orders until an hr after the store is open so customers have a chance to shop the items first. ¬† So if a location doesn’t have the stock the online in-store pickup orders will suffer. ¬†I did notice now online some of the daily deals tell you if they’re available for your store or not, but if its something you REALLY want then go to the store when they open for your best shot.

Only got 1 of the 2 palettes I ordered online picked up in store.

Only got 1 of the 2 palettes I ordered online picked up in store.

Utilize the calendar notifications: ¬†This was the first time I used these and was a huge success for my scatterbrain. ¬†I scanned all the deals late at night so you know I wasn’t going to remember which days have which products I want. ¬†Since I was on my phone, I clicked the calendar notifications and all week I’ve been getting the alerts so I know to swing in and grab what I wanted.

Too Faced Neutrals Palette is as pretty as Bandit... er handsome as Bandit

Too Faced Neutrals Palette is as pretty as Bandit… er handsome as Bandit

Stack daily deals with freebies: ¬†A lot of the daily deals have free gifts associated with them too! ¬†I picked up this neural Too Faced Eye Palette and with a $35 Too Face purchase you get this Juicy 4 Piece set. ¬†I’m stoked for more freebies! ¬†(see all free gifts here) You can also use your Ulta coupon, but normal restrictions (like prestige brands) apply – $3.50 off of a $15 purchase coupon.

Got this primer for $3.50 and this Too Faced Gift Set for FREE!

Got this primer for $3.50 and this Too Faced Gift Set for FREE!

I’m not going to lie though, I have a problem. ¬†One of the main reasons I signed up to be an Avon Rep was that I quit my 2nd job but still had 1 job income, so I needed to re-evaluate my spending. ¬†Ulta was a big culprit of that. ¬†I signed up to sell Avon for 2 reasons, make some extra money to fuel my habits and get some just-as-good-as-Ulta products for a MUCH better price. ¬†Who knew it would lead to all these awesome opportunities, income and fun! ¬†Which also means I may not spend as much at Ulta these days but I do go through my spirts and shop it like a mo fo. ¬†Picking up my free birthday gift was what set off this spiral. ¬†I of course strategically planned my purchase to include whatever free gift they had going on, this time it was the bath and body sample set. ¬†It included such a great selection of products and brands. ¬†I’m REALLY loving The Body Shop 3-1 Tea Tree Oil Cleanser. ¬†This gift set doesn’t look to be available online anymore but in my store, they still had it available with a $35 bath and body purchase.

Found some new favorites at Ulta!

Found some new favorites at Ulta!

I also got the September Ulta Birthday Gift as my August gift because they ran out of August. ¬†This NARS mini lipstick in Pour Toujours is the Ulta September Birthday Gift and it’s just ok. ¬†The color is a nice true nude that’s not too foundation-y has the right amount of cool undertones, but the formula is heavy, I just don’t find it comfortable to wear. ¬† And if my lips are dry they look even more dry with this formula. ¬†I would of loved that Benefit Hoola Bronzer more… ¬†Anyways… Ulta 21 Days of Beauty, it’s fun, it has good deals this year and tell me what you’re picking up so I don’t feel like the only product junkie out there.
