If the world of alicia was the internet #urbansafari would totally be trending. Mix a little safari, with a little bit modern, a touch of tropical, and a tinge of uptown and you get yourself some #urbansafari. Here’s what’s been inspiring me for the urban safari trend.
Need a cure for the summer time blues? How about my go-to dress all spring is now on clearance for only $29.99 the mark. X’s and Oh’s dress. I wore this dress non-stop all spring, so much its surprising I never got around to featuring it here on the blog before now!
It’s so super easy and comfortable to wear. The printed shift style looks great worn casually or dressed up. I will warn you it has no stretch in it, but it still fits and wears really well. It may be just another printed dress, but the lace up neckline and cuffed sleeves add some trendy detailing that make this dress better than your average.
I’m wearing mine with mark. Isle Style Hat and the Isle Style Bag from the mark. Instant Vacation Havana line. For more summer time blues, I love how the cream and blue detailing look against the pattern. My pink lip is the mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Pop Tart.
I’m also digging my new nautical accents with the Avon Seaside Starfish 3 piece set, including a necklace, bracelet and earrings all for only $9.99! A cute little set perfect for summer. This is the kind of set you just leave on during all your vacation days, surf through sun through sand! Plus it looks really cute with my new favorite navy watch, the Avon Seaside Watch, only $14.99!

The first day of summer is Wednesday and what a better way to kick off the summer than coming back from a killer vacation in the Bahamas (thank you Avon!) and a killer limited edition Havana Sol beauty collection from mark.’s Instant Vacation Havana capsule collection. Every year mark. transports us with their capsule collections (see here) and this year’s Havana Sol was no exception with a limited edition hook up consisting of a bronzer/blush pallet, eye pallet, and 2 lipsticks!
Let’s start with my favorite, the mark. Havana Sol Blush Bronzer
mark. by Avon Havana Sol Collection—a limited edition shade of the square-shaped palette that holds a mark. blush. Two buildable cheek colors meet radiant-boosting bronzing powder in a unique palette that recalls a stunning beachy Havana sunset.
• Provides radiant flush
• Shimmer and matte shades
• Provides superior coverage
• Has a silky smooth feel and texture
• Get a sheer wash of color or build for intense color payoff
• Convenient connectible palette to create your own personal color collection
I like to use the bronzer to contour and define then swirl the two color shades as a blush, or I swirl them all together and sweep upward on the cheeks.
Pairing perfectly with the cheek pallet and as part of a hookup, connect the mark. Havana Sol Eye Contact:

Happy Thanksgiving from my home to yours! Eat, drink and give thanks! Just for fun here’s a few thanksgiving-tastic eye candy from http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and our Black Friday weekend sales and specials!
With the ultimate holiday meal tomorrow, today let’s look at what to wear to a potluck! I collaborated with Erica Gerelmann on two looks that will work for your next potluck this holiday season.
A potluck is all about being stress free and your looks should be the same. You want to be comfortable to sit, eat and socialize in but still a little festive because, well, it’s an excuse to be! Usually I would find any reason to wear red during the holidays but this year I’m all about icy shades of blue, silver and grey! A stress free sweatshirt dress, statement necklace, statement boots and topped off with a statement lip takes casual potluck to something special while remaining festive and fun!
Wearing: Sweatshirt Dress, mark. | Clear Choice Necklace, mark. | Don’t Let Go Satchel, mark. | boots, Shoedazzle | Lip, Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Electric Pink | Blanket Check Scarf, mark.
The holidays are here and in my family, we keep things simple and casual. We gather at someone’s house and everyone brings a covered dish for a big potluck dinner. When deciding what to wear, I leave the dress and shapewear at home and break out a pair of “fat pants” and a roomy shirt. I know I’ll eat too much! This outfit is definitely something I would wear to my family’s holiday party. I wanted to give this look the red and green Christmas feel without being too cheesy and there is no better time to break out the sparkly accessories then at a holiday party!
Erica is wearing Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick in red supreme, mark. Funnel of Love Sweater, Avon Radiant Beauty Teardrop Necklace and Earring Gift Set, Avon Glitter Sparkle Strap Watch, Avon 2016 Holiday Collectible Pin, and the shoes, headband, and pants are oldies from my closet.
