All Bundled Up Fall Exclusive

All Bundled Up Fall Exclusive

Word Of Alicia:  Usually anything with musk or amber I tend to shy away from but this one is different.  It isn’t too overpowering just adds a nice warmth.  The crisp pear keeps it fresh.  It’s really the perfect bath and body scent for this time of year, like the crisp fall air with a little warmth of sweater weather.  I really like how it’s light enough to layer perfume over too.  I’ve been wearing the new So Very Sophia from Avon paired with it and it’s just the perfect base.  Top pick by far is and will always be the Whipped Up Body Butter.  This is my favorite formula from a moisturizer from any brand.  It’s super rich and luxurious and really moisturizes.  It’s like a little spa treatment with every swipe.  I would definitely recommend this limited edition collection as a must have for fall.  Even better, you can get it for FREE!

How To Get It For FREE!!!  THAT’S RIGHT, FREE!  Now through the 17th you can get a FREE All Bundled Up bundle with a $45 purchase at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger that’s a $30 value and you get free shipping so really this is the best part of customer appreciation week I think!  I say shop some new arrivals, the big fall makeup sale and add the Whipped Up Body Butter too and you’ll get this bundle.  It’s worth it even if you just save it and gift it come Christmas, for a free gift it’s one of the better ones!

In addition if you want to get this bundle and also get the new upcoming Avon Anew Ultimate Supreme Creme before it’s launch you can use promo code TAKE20 and get the cream for a special intro price of $28 and the bundle will be added too with your $45 order.  If you want a luxe creme like that you’d find from Chanel for a minimal fraction of the cost then try this Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Creme!  Shop now at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Maybe pair the above top with this fun heel!  It has fall friendly features in the the metallic detailing and faux suede upper but will work perfectly now with the cutouts!  I love that it almost has a shootie feel to it!

mark. crazy for cranberry whipped up body butter

mark. crazy for cranberry whipped up body butter

Last but not least this mark. body butter in crazy for cranberry!  These mark. body butters are my absolute favorites, they are super moisturizing and smell wonderful.  I know this scent I’ll be sporting all fall and winter but it’s nice to get a little bit of that now on my summer sunned skin!

Fall Preview: The Trench Coat

There are a few things you can count on to be in style every season, every year.  The Classic Trench Coat is one of them!  This fall the trend is still that classic coat but dialed up a notch with trendy details.  Here are a few options to start your fall shopping with or at least pin onto pinterest to pick up once jacket weather starts to creep in.

mark. Classic Move Coat  $75

mark. Classic Move Coat

mark. Classic Move Coat

 

mark. updated the classic trench by making it black instead of tan, and added quilted leather detailing to the sleeves and shoulders.  Its still basic enough to go with everything but has enough interest to make it worth while!  I have a black trench from Express I got back in 2000 that is my GO-TO coat for fall.  Sadly, it has a rip in the back, but 14 years is a good run.  I will be replacing it with this coat.  Knowing how much a good black trench works for my wardrobe I’m pretty excited to replace it with this one.  Plus the mark. Classic Move Coat ($85) has a bit of that equestrian look with the faux quilted leather so it will goPERFECTLY with some riding boots! (available at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger starting Aug 8th)

Ann Taylor Trench Dress $149

Ann Taylor

Years ago Ann Taylor put out a sleeveless trench that had me OBSESSING!  I never picked it up and kick myself each September when a sleeveless trench would be PERFECT to ward off the slight morning chill and still look SUPER CHIC!  This year AT updated the classic trench by making it a sleeveless dress version.  This is my pick for wear now, wear later!  I love it as a dress or draped over as a vest.

Burberry London Sandringham Leather Trim Jacquard Trench Coat $2495

Burberry London

Burberry London

The ultimate in trench coats, Burberry London has the classic trench DOWN, but for fall they updated it with a textured print.  I’m loving the luxurious jacquard print which really dresses up the look.  Jacquard prints are another trend shaping up to be big for this fall/winter.

Whichever trend you want to embrace, leather accents, sleeveless or jacquard, a trench coat is NEVER a bad idea.

Trending Tuesday – #fallpreview

Zoey Getting Snuggly In A Fall Scarf

Zoey Getting Snuggly In A Fall Scarf

If the world of Alicia was the internet new fall arrivals for #fallpreview would totally be trending!  This time of year is a total love hate relationship for me.  I LOVE summer, absolutely LOVE summer so I would never want to wish it away, but fall is a pretty cool time too!   Plus, all the best stuff comes out for back to school and the new season.  It’s like going back to school, you really dread it and you hate that you can’t sleep in everyday and watch daytime tv like The Price Is Right, but on the other hand you were excited to get new stuff and go back and see your friends.  I’m highly enjoying my hot summer days but here are a few things I’m slightly obsessing over new for fall.

 

Bath and Body Works Home Scents

Can shopping at Bath and Body Works actually be a tradition!?  Well, it is in my world!  Fall isn’t complete without attending the fall scent event (usually in late Aug/early Sept) where I stock up on all my favorite fall candles, sleeves, hand soaps and wall flowers! Usually the event involves some mega deals and free gifts and we all know we’re a sucker for anything FREE!  One product that always makes the cut is a triple wick candle in Leaves.  Its perfect for filling up a whole room with a crisp, not to overwhelming fall scent.  Which is why I’m so excited that this week is their Fall Preview Week!  In stores they have a small selection of new releases and favorites that you can get now, or at least preview and make your list for their fall event.  This display is only out for a week before they pack it up and send it back to wait until it’s official release.  My pick from the preview event is the pumpkin mini candle gift set ($24).  I might already have it sitting out on my coffee table.  (with my summer scented coconut candles in the kitchen, oooops!)

Fall TV

Fall TV is the best!  All your favorite shows return and a bunch of newbies come on the scene to fill up your DVR.  I’m most looking forward to the return of The Walking Dead!  With Comic Con just happening last weekend we got a preview of Season 5 and it looks CRAY CRAY!  Remember when the craziest thing was the walkers being kept in the barn… we’ll Dorothy, we’re not on the farm any more!  But what I can tell is they survive being shoved in that trailer and not being eaten by the possible cannibals.  AND at the very end of the trailer we see a sneak peek at Beth, which was a serious question in my book…  I’m so scared, I’m so excited!

Watch The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer here:  http://www.amctv.com/the-walking-dead/videos/comic-con-trailer-the-walking-dead-season-5

…aaaaand the walking dead chat is now open… what are your theories?  what are you most excited to see and not excited to see.  I totally am over the long drawn out episodes so I hope there’s more action and bringing them more together so I’m not flashing between a million different story lines.

The Odd Couple

The Odd Couple  (source)

And on a lighter note I’m kinda super excited for new show, The Odd Couple on CBS featuring Chandler and Dangle aka Mathew Perry and Thomas Lennon.  I loved the original Odd Couple so its going to be hard to recreate such a Nick-At-Night masterpiece, but if anyone can do it, its them!  What other new shows coming this fall are you excited about?  Seems a lot of super-hero type series are coming out and as always a ton of new dramas, but not a whole lot of comedies…

Be sure to check back all week as I continue Fall Preview Week here on the blog!  New arrivals, plus what you can use now and later and just what to get jazzed for!
