TGIF – Instant Vacation Flashback

Flashback Friday needs to take an instant vacation. I’m not sure about you but I could definitely go for a vacation right now.  With the long Memorial weekend coming up, planning summer vacations, outings and bbq’s I’m in a vacation mode today.  Well that and mark. just released this years Instant Vacation capsule collection!  Every year mark. releases a vacation-ready capsule collection themed around a killer vacation destination, this year being Buenos Aires.  Each piece of the collection is anchored around a fragrance and always themed out perfectly, and we know I’m a sucker for a good theme execution.  Since the mark. Buenos Aires Vibe collection is my Friday Favorite for today, let’s flashback to the last 4 Instant Vacation collections that read as as a summer travel bucket list!

The Ibiza collection has a special place in my heart.  It’s the exact campaign when I joined mark. in 2011, pre blog, so I don’t have any looks but it’s what introduced me to these Instant Vacation releases and I’ve been forever smitten and brings me 4 years later to the Buenos Aires Vibe collection!

Destination:  Buenos Aires!  Cobblestone streets, neoclassical mansions, surly tango parlors… Welcome to South America’s chicest metropolis, where old world elegance meets contemporary cool.  Today’s biggest decision:  Explore the bohemian barrio of La Bocca?  Shop the posh boutiques of the aristocratic Recoleta neighborhood?  Or maybe just linger over a cortado at one of the city’s cafes, staring at the impeccably dressed locals, aka portenos?  Either way get ready for a night on the town, weber the clubs start thumping at 2am and you’ll dance till dawn.  This is Buenos Aires… let our fashion and fragrance take you there!”

Check back for my reviews and looks from this collection that will fit your summer vacation no matter where you go!  Here’s a few looks from the collection and Lucy Hale I’m totally loving!

Nailed It – Instant Vacation Marrakesh

I already  introduced you to the limited edition Marrakesh beauty collection but I left out one major beauty component, the nail polish!!!  Of course this is my favorite, the Nailed It Trend Marrakesh Mini Nail Lacquers.  With nails being the hottest trend around, these gorgeous shades of Marrakesh take yours to an exotic new place! Saffron, a glistening warm gold, will add spice to your look while mint tea, a lush, shimmering green, warms up any ensemble.

What I love the most about this duo set is they are mini’s, only 0.09 fl. oz. each so for a small price ($7) you get just enough to last you a season then on to the next trend.  I HATE wasting polish and this is the perfect amount.  AND in coordinating shades your mani pedi setup is already figured out or do what I did and wear the coordinating shades together.  I wore the gold shade on my thumb, pointer and pinky then the green shade on my ring and middle then freehanded a stripe of gold on top of the green.  The mini brush make it super easy.

How awesome does the Stack and Style Ring ($18) look with this polish!?!  I love how expertly coordinated the Marrakesh collection is!  You can shop the ring, polish and the rest of the Marrakesh collection at my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

mark. Night Iris Capsule Collection – Get The Look

mark. just doesn’t launch a fragrance… we celebrate it by giving its own capsule collection! It’s not about the scent itself its about an entire mood.  Get the Night Iris mood head to toe… a pedicured toe that is, in our new night iris nailed-it shades. Night Iris is about purples and pinks, a striking print and the splendor of spring!

Fearless Vivid Color

Night Iris Capsule Collection

This has to be my absolute favorite launch from mark.  A complete capsule collection based off their new fragrance Night Iris.  I’ve been wearing this scent NON-STOP since I got it and haven’t looked back.  Its perfect for spring, it’s got enough heart to it that it works on rainy days, enough fun to wear out on the town, and enough sweetness to wear basking in the warm spring sun.  I can’t express how much I LOVE this collection.  Everything about it, the colors, the scent, the fashion, the new beauty items.  It all wears so seamlessly together to put that spring in your step as you leap out of winter.  This has been the BEST selection of products from mark. that I’ve seen in my opinion.
