Word On A Fall Jewelry Refresh

Word On A Fall Jewelry Refresh

Word On A Fall Jewelry Refresh

What’s the one thing that always fits, you could wear everyday if you wanted to and fits in your budget? Jewelry! Additionally, you can change your entire look with one piece, try a new trend and/or add a pop of color all with jewelry. With Avon’s big fall jewelry update just launching at my eBoutique here’s my word on the top picks to refresh for fall!

Number 1 Pick:  Avon Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace

Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace

Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace

The Avon Layers Of Fun Statement Necklace ($24.99) is a multi strand black and gold statement necklace, that’s really lightweight and easy to wear.  It’s basic colors allow it to be worn with a lot of different outfits the the shiny gold and layers let it stand out and really make a look.  You can wear it with a lot of different necklines an because it’s so lightweight you can wear it all day!  Personally it is very Alicia as well so that’s also why it’s my #1 pick!

Pick #2:  Avon Glitzy Hoop Earrings in Rosegold

Glitzy Hoop Earrings in Rosegold

Glitzy Hoop Earrings in Rosegold

You need those everyday hoops with a little something, these Avon Glitzy Hoop Earrings are it.  They come in gold, silver and rose gold.  My pick is the rose gold because it will still match with your gold items but it’s the on-trend metal of the moment.  Plus those rhinestones play so nicely with the warm tones for fall and at only $7.99 win win!

Pick #3:  Avon Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings

Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings

Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings

Cascading multi-faceted stones from a lotus like design are nothing short of statement making with the Avon Fall Into Color Chandelier Earrings.  I love a statement earring especially when you’re wearing a pattern or something with an ornate detail/neckline (like all those strappy tanks and lace up tee’s that are in).  These ones are super lightweight for a statement earring so they’re actually wearable for longer than an hr, and they come in amethyst, aqua or topaz and an intro price of $5.99 you could get all 3 colors!

Pick #4:  Avon Secret Escape Necklace

Avon Secret Escape Necklace

Avon Secret Escape Necklace

A Calypso-Inspired necklace may not be a top pick for fall but what I love about this Avon Secret Escape Necklace ($19.99)is its amber toned jewels agains the turquoise will really play well with fall colors, making it an ultimate wear now wear later piece.  Pair with your summer whites and lights now and with your camel and denim later.  It’s a little 2005 in design but maybe that’s why I like it, since I’m a lady in my 30’s now…

Either way, adding in some new jewelry is kinda perfect for your fall wardrobe refresh.  With back to school shopping we always focus on the basics like jeans, shoes/boots, sweaters/blouses and/or maybe a new coat, but we forget the details like jewelry.  You can check out all the new fall jewelry items in the latest brochure from Avon and you might just see yours truly!  If you would like a brochure comment and I’ll send one your way!  Or you can view it all online at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Live The Luxe Life

Live The Luxe Life

Word Of Alicia:  This has to be one of my absolute favorite fragrances released by Avon/mark.!  And that says a lot because there’s been some really really good ones.  I think this smells sophisticated but still clean and sparkling.  It works day or night and the staying power is pretty good.  I liked the original Luck but wasn’t in love with it to buy it again, but this one I’ll stock up on.

#yachtlife!  The scene set by Maria Sharapova for the look and feel of this campaign makes me wish that was a hashtag I actually use.  Until my nonexistent yacht life changes I’ll just have to feel like I’m there with this pretty perfume,  it’s pretty quilted bottle topped with a bow, and sport some luxe white and gold looks.

It's as luxe as it's quilted bottle would suggest!

National Fragrance Day: My Favorite Fragrances

Happy National Fragrance Day!

Happy National Fragrance Day!

Happy National Fragrance Day and welcome spring! Because I love both fragrance and spring, so I’m a happy camper today! Fragrance is such a personal thing but that doesn’t mean I can’t share my favorites.  In no particular order here are my favorite scents:

Avon Femme ($30 currently on sale for only $15!)

Avon Femme (Sale $15)

Avon Femme (Sale $15)

Description:  It’s your moment to shine. AVON FEMME captivates from day to night. An elegant fragrance with sparkling freshness and opulent florals. Rich jasmine petals and stunning magnolia touched with radiant amberwoods. Luxuriously long-lasting, for hour after hour of beautiful scent. 1.7 fl. oz.

Word Of Alicia:  Pretty much all my favorites are wear anytime scents but this one I particularly like in the spring/summer.  It has good staying power, and the florals are are balanced really well with a fresh scent.  Plus the price is the biggest selling point.

Ralph Lauren Blue ($46-$82)

Ralph Lauren Blue ($46-$82)

Ralph Lauren Blue ($46-$82)

Description:  Cool and fresh, Blue Eau de Toilette by Ralph Lauren is a soft floral fragrance that melts into the skin with notes of lotus flower, gardenia and pink peony, exotic blossoms such as tuberose, rose de mai and orange flower enriched with musk, ambrette and sandalwood.  Notes: Lotus flower, muguet, gardenia, sparkling jasmine accord, pink peony, rose de mai, tuberose, jasmine petals, orange flower, musk, ambrette, sandalwood, mousse de chine, vetiver.

Word Of Alicia:  I had no idea this fragrance was so floral until I pulled the details here!  This one I became a fan of while working at Elder Beerman Department Store in college and it’s stayed in heavy rotation ever since, and I’ve had A LOT of perfumes since then.  It’s really crisp and clean for being such a floral (apparently) scent.  Kind of what you associate with a scent from Ralph Lauren!

mark. Instant Vacation Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

Description:  Each year mark. does a capsule collection inspired by a hot vacation spot and it’s core features a fragrance.

Word Of Alicia:  These mark. Instant Vacation scents are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!  They’re usually an Eau De Toilette so a lighter scent, not as long lasting but that’s usually what you want for a vacation scent.  From Ibiza Sol, to the Hamptons, Marrakesh, Saint Barts and more I’ve loved them all!  This year’s hot spot is Maui and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the next one in the collection!

mark. Naked Love Bath and Body ($6-$14)

mark. Naked Love

mark. Naked Love

Description:  Fresh and clean in the most amazing way with notes of apricot nectar, white peaches, velvet freesia and skin musk.

Word Of Alicia:  I’m lazy, this is no secret.  So as much as I love perfume I’m lucky if I actually put it on.  That’s why a good fragrant bath and body collection wins out.  I’ll pair a shower gel and a good body cream for a more lasting scent and this mark. Naked Love has a great scent.  I think the peach and apricot stands out the most, and it has secured the #1 position as favorite away from Lemon Sugar (a close second) in the mark. bath and body core collections.

 mark. Windswept Bath and Body ($6-$14 ON SALE $4.50-$11!)

mark. Windswept Bath and Body

mark. Windswept Bath and Body

Description:  Feel the breeze and let your spirit soar with this exhilarating mix of sparkling grapefruit orchid essence and cedarwood

Word Of Alicia:  Windswept is a seasonal scent but it’s been my FAVORITE go-to scent since it launched.  For me it’s perfect for spring, like a fresh spring breeze.  With all bath and body collections layering is key for the scent to last, plus spraying something like the body mist mid day is a good pick me up!

Bath and Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel:  ($5-$16.50)

Bath and Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel

Bath and Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel

Description:  Top notes: vanilla, sweet butter cream. Heart: caramel, benzoin, chocolate. Base: soft musk, sugar cookie.

Word Of Alicia:  This is another seasonal scent I HAVE to pick up every year from Bath and Body Works.  It is the ultimate layering scent.  I love it under my perfume, it never seems to clash just add warmth and in winter that’s exactly what I want.  I stock up every year.
