Modern Southern Belle: Sealaura

Meet Modern Southern Belle Sealaura!  Sealaura, aka Laura, is a coastal lifestyle blogger with a mission to remain authentic.  She shows you a real life take on life on the west coast with her scientist husband and their pups Newman and León.  She is also no stranger to Word Of Alicia, with her latest, showing us her take on wearing a sequin skirt (see here).  Lucky for us we have a guest post today from her, a west coast take on the Modern Southern Belle with her pick from the Avon Savana Blooms collection (available now at http://ww.youravon.com/aliciahessinger)


Guest Post:  Sealura

SAVANNAH BLOOMS IN LA…

I never met a stripe I did not like so when I saw the Megan Tunic from Avon’s Spring Line I had to have it. When it comes to adding new pieces to my wardrobe I stick to what works for my lifestyle and shape. Tunics are essential for beach life especially in sunny blue stripes.

The slit sleeves makes this piece different for Spring 2018. I know I will appreciate the extra breeze come summer and the ruffle cuff is also a nice detail. Can you believe this tunic is only $29.99? That’s what I really love about AVON fashion, it does not break the bank. Adding one new piece can add a little pep to your Spring wardrobe and I believe this top is it for me.

Pin on Pinterest

Avon ‘s Southern Belle collection consists of a lot of fun pieces that mix and match. This is my favorite piece because it will be great for travel and for beachy adventures. I am definitely taking this to Hawaii when I see B in February and during Spring Break.

This past weekend I was able to spend some time with León. He is currently living with my sister in Vegas because I am traveling a lot and am also finalizing the Hawaii travel for him and Newman. The boys will be taking a red eye in March and then B will pick them up at the airport and we will be done with this saga!! Moving pets to Hawaii is NOT easy!
Anyway, I miss those guys! But I was grateful to spend the weekend with him and have some snuggles before he headed back to Sin City.

In 20 days I will be in Hawaii to visit B. I can not wait. It will be a whirlwind weekend but we have set these little markers to make the time we are a part go by faster.

Do you have any weekend getaways planned?

Perfect Summer Accessory — and you can get it for FREE!

 

Perfect Summer Accessory - and get it for FREE!

Perfect Summer Accessory – and get it for FREE!

Summer times means long warm days… or chilly ac ridden days.  Poolside lounging… or trying to cover up in a itty bitty suit.  Either way, it’s still way more fun than winter and sometimes just requires the right accessory.  That’s why I’m claiming the Avon Multi-Way Printed Sarong as the perfect summer accessory, and here are 10 reasons why:

 1.  It’s tropical print

Palm Leaves And Tropical Birds

Palm Leaves And Tropical Birds

During summer anything tropical print is an instant mood booster.  Instantly feel like your in a tropical paradise when really you’re in your cube.  I absolutely adore the lush print with palms and birds, a little different than your typical tropical flowers.  Yes, its a little old lady but its so cute!  Anyways, who said old ladies aren’t cute!?

 2.  Its fringed

Fringe Trend On The Avon Multi-Way Printed Sarong

Fringe Trend On The Avon Multi-Way Printed Sarong

Fring is having a major moment right now, so the silky black fringe (that doesn’t tangle) will keep you on trend!  So that x’s out that old lady-ness right?

3.  Its silky

Summertime Details in Summertime Friendly Fabrics

Summertime Details in Summertime Friendly Fabrics

May be hard to tell from the picture but I can vouch on the quality on this guy.  It may be polyester but it’s really silky, which means it won’t be TOO hot in the summer heat.

4.  Its oversized

Oversized For Tons Of Ways To Wear It

Oversized For Tons Of Ways To Wear It

Measuring 59″ L x 43 1/2″ W + 6″ fringe which means you can wear it a boat-load of ways.  Wear it mulit-ways for multi-purposes.

5.  Wear it out

Worn As A Scarf Over The Avon Ruched Crochet Detail Dress

Worn As A Scarf Over The Avon Ruched Crochet Detail Dress

It is thin so you can easily wear it as a scarf.  Wear it like you would a statement necklace.

6.  Wear it to work

Sling It Over The Shoulders In Chilly AC

Sling It Over The Shoulders In Chilly AC

Wrapped around the shoulders it wards off the chilly ac in offices… or at the grocery store, at the movies, etc… and it would stuff in your bag easily when you don’t need it.

7.   Wear it at the pool

Perfect Poolside Accessory

Perfect Poolside Accessory

Wear it as your typical sarong style at the pool for covering up.  It really is the best poolside cover up because you can adjust it to be as high or low as you want it… cover the gut or show off the abs, you pick! Long or short, you pick!  Either way you’ll be looking like a tropical goddess!

8.  Wear it as a dress

Avon Multi-Way Printed Sarong Tied As A Dress

Avon Multi-Way Printed Sarong Tied As A Dress

Get more bang for your buck by not only getting a new accessory but a new dress as well!  How perfect for a summer party or nights out.  Wear a tube top/bandeau and some spandex like shorts underneath to feel comfortably covered up.

9.  Wear it as a maxi skirt

Instantly Taking A Vacation With This Packaging

WORD ON THE LOOK:  I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and good advertisement images, and this one did not disappoint.  Every year they do a little extra effort on the package design.  This year the pretty sunset colors and image really captures the warmth of the scent.  It really smells like an Hawaiian sunset!  I love the palm leafs too and that stunning model in the stunning pink dress.  They had me at Aloha!

The Signature Scent: Maui Bliss

The Signature Scent: Maui Bliss

WORD OF ALICIA:  I can’t lie, I’m a little disspointed they didn’t do a true perfume because I LOVE THIS ONE SOOOO MUCH!  The body spray is nice, it lasts a good amount of time, it’s refreshing but I would of loved to layer it with a true perfume and I totally would of bought multiples.  The whole line is wonderful, typical of mark bath and body.  If you haven’t tried them the body cream is so rich and wonderful and not too greasy and the shower gel is moisturizing.  They work so well layered together you’re going to want the whole line, but my top pick is the Shimmering Moisture Gel.  Its lightweight moisturizing gel with really great fragrance pay off.  The shimmer is sun kissed and it works WONDERS as an after sun.  I’ll be stocking up on this for sure.

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.

Trending Tuesday – Fall IT Color #camel

If the world of alicia was the internet then #camel would totally be trending.  This fall I’ve had a color crush on camel.  I’m not much of a brown person but camel is like it’s creamy cousin that looks excellent against that end of summer tan and your classic blacks and blues.  That’s why camel is totally trending in my world… if you couldn’t tell by my #1 camel pick, my camel colored bag that I’m OBSESSED with… and a few other camel inspirations…

A camel bag – My must have as of latemark. Neutral Territory Bag.  Big and structured so super effective!

Red Hot Lip Color – mark. All Butter Now in Fired Up ($11).  This red is the perfect summer red.  Because the formula is more a nourishing balm you wouldn’t expect the color pay off to be so much but it’s amazing.
