Avon Beauty Items Under $25!

Avon Beauty Items Under $25!

Word of Alicia:  Orders usually ship free at a $40 price point, so when the free ship at $25 comes around this is the best time to get makeup!  We’re so reasonably priced that you can get your basics for under $25 – like Love At First Lash Mascara ($12), Glimmersticks Eye/Lip/Brow Liners (3 for $10), foundation ($14-$25), my fave Nourishing Lipstick ($6.99)… however my order suggestion this time around to get the free ship at $25 is the Time To Shine Palette Collection.

Time To Shine Palette Collection

Eye Palette #2:  Cool and Neutral

This is SUCH a nice set for only $25.  As someone who shops a lot of brands, high to low, the quality on this one stands out just as nice as those high end brands.  As someone who shops holiday sets at places like Ulta, Sephora, Macy’s, etc… this holiday set gives you so much between the 24 eye shades and the 4 face shades.  PLUS the packaging is to die for!  It’s not *too* holiday making this a great set to use year round.

Time To Shine Palette Collection Only $25 * Cheers To You Shower Gels $7 ea.

Last year we had a similar version (see here) that Oprah actually mentioned as one of her top gifts to give and get.  This year it’s just as good of a gift and even better packaging and color options!

This would make a great gift for any beauty lover, anyone who shops as said stores, and anyone who loves *living their best life*.  You can shop the Time to Shine Palette Collection online at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger be sure to use promo code HOLIDAY25 for free shipping.

Holiday Hangover

I’m a keep my holiday going till after the New Years kind of person so now that I’m on Christmas vacation I’m kinda in a holiday hangover. Don’t really know what day it is, what I have done, what I need to do before year end, but I do know there are a lot of blog posts I never got around to in Dec. so here’s a little re-cap of the things I meant to post…

Christmas Eve is spent at my sister’s.  We go to Christmas Eve service then head over for her formal dinner which usually always includes lots of pictures, fun and cheesecake.  This year Avon had some really fun and festive holiday jammies so we got in the spirit early.

Perfect Red Dress

Little Red Dress

Little Red Dress

This perfect red dress is what I wore for Christmas Eve.  Since it is now winter changed it up and paired it with tights and some lace up patent leather pumps (mark., old) and a pretty rhinestone bow belt (WHBM).  I felt very Mrs. Clause in it which was very appropriate.  I meant to have it hemmed, but never got around to it.  Maybe for Valentine’s day make it more fun and flirty.

Winter Solstice had me feeling the icy vibes with silver gray and light blues.  This fun sequin reindeer sweater (Avon) was a simpler way to be festive.  I really liked it paired with my boot skirt (WHBM) and OTK mushroom gray boots (Shoedazzle).

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!

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).

Christmas Day OOTD!  Nothing I love more than a good holiday tradition, which is why Erica’s Fashion and Beauty and I are having a pajama party!  If your pj’s ever count as an OOTD Christmas Eve/Day is it, and with some really cute options from Avon this year there’s no reason not to refresh your lounge gear.

When we were little my brother and I planned our jammies for our favorite day and now I kinda still do that.  I have a stash of holiday jammies in red and green I pull out every year but when I saw this Winter Soft collection from Avon in soft shades I knew it was time to add something different to the collection.  I went for the Winter Soft Solid Knit PJ Pants in the soft lavender color.  I thought they would be something that I could wear year round with how soft and lightweight they are, but for the holiday’s I’ll pair them with an extra soft snowflake sweater and some new Avon slippers. Plus I just love the big satin bow tie!

I was so excited to see these Avon Winter Soft Memory Foam Bootie slippers in grey (also come in white and pink).  My Muk Luks died this year and I needed to replace, and these Avon booties did not disappoint!  The memory foam is so comfortable.  They were a little tight when you first put them on but once the foam shapes to your foot you’re golden!  I can not get over how comfy they are, they go from baking cookies to lounging watching Christmas movies on the couch, one of my favorite recent items, perfect for a chilly winter day.

These are a few of my favorite (Winter Soft) things…

The Winter Soft collection from Avon all starts with the seasonal favorite Winter Soft bath and body collection but this year also features a range of products in soft shades from these pj’s and slippers to this gorgeous blue necklace to stunning home goods, games, blankets and more!  They all beautifully pair together to create a really stunning gifts.  I think pairing the pj’s and slippers with a robe and bath and body set would be magical.  Or how about the beautiful throw blanket, 7-in1 Game board, and the set of mugs for a winter night in!  Either way I’m ready for my holiday traditions in my new Wintersoft pj’s!

What To Wear: Potluck

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.

Alicia’s Look:

Stress Free Look for a Potluck

Stress Free Look for a Potluck

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!

Erica's Casual Holiday Potluck Look

Erica’s Casual Holiday Potluck Look

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!

Red Accents from Avon
