12 Days of Deals – Day 10:  FREE Anew Vitamin C Serum a $44 value with promo code VITAMINC

Word of Alicia:  The Vitamin C Serum is one of my must have’s especially now that its been reformulated!  If you haven’t tried it with its new silky, quick absorbing formula then what a better way than to try it for FREE! Vit C really helps with sun and age spots and the winter is the BEST time to use it and help repair that damage.  Pair it with a super hydrating moisturizer as with all vitamin c products they contain alcohol so you actually absorb the vitamin c.  I really like it paired with the Anew Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Creme.  If I were to build a $50 order to get this serum for free this is the order I’d build:

My absolute favorite gift bundle is this Let It Glow Skincare Blockbuster for $49.  Not only does it have a $154 value but it contains some of my absolute favorites that I’ve talked about so many times it also has the perfect red lip matte lipstick for the holidays and beyond.  The Avon Mattitude Lipstick in Persistent is a deeper red that looks magical with simple eye makeup for the holidays.  And can we talk about that glitter bag!?  Its the icing on the cake!  Because we need to add another dollar to hit that $50 mark I suggest my fav senses in Starfruit & Coconut that’s now on clearance for $2.99 (see here).

You could either gift the Let It Glow Skincare Bundle, break it up and use as individual gifts and keep the free Vitamin C or keep it all!  Either way this order is worth $208 and you’d get it for $51.99…. A 1/4th the cost!!!!  I mean why would you not!?  You can shop this online at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Nothing solidifies the start of the holiday season like a Starbucks Red Cup! I most certainly got my Peppermint Hot Chocolate so I could get the free re-useable cup. Hashtag basic and I’m totes ok with it!

It may be too hot for flannel and a hot chocolate but I’m really good at pretending.  Also It’s Nov 7th it really should be cool enough for a flannel shirt.  I mean really Nor Cal, get it together.  Regardless I wanted those holiday vibes and I’m kinda obsessing over black watch plaid and this statement necklace so the two of them together is kinda obsession overload.

Week O’Nautical – Little Red Dress

Week O'Nautical - Little Red Dress

Week O’Nautical – Little Red Dress

Week O’Nautical is here for the short work week!  I’m counting down to the long weekend by theme-ing out my life in all things red white and blue with a loose – and I do mean loose – nautical vibe.  Last time, Memorial Week O’Nautical was all about the blues, but this 4th of July week we’re all about the red! Starting it all off with a Little Red Dress!

Red Dress For A Short Work Week

Little Red Dress – the Avon Myrna Dress

This little red dress was from the spring release via Avon which you might of seen me share on IG, but from the moment I ordered it I had nothing but Week O’Nautical OOTD thoughts on it.  A good red dress is a must in my closet.  I like this one because its off the shoulder which I love, even if I have to layer it with a bodysuit.  Its also lightweight, stretchy, kinda loose, kinda fitted and packable so perfect for summer trips!

Red White and Blue Wear To Work

Red White and Blue Wear To Work

For work I paired this with some nautical block heeled sandals (last seen here), a gold cuff and white hoop earrings all from Avon.  My bag is my new summer bag! I scored on a good deal on it at Marshall’s.  This Michael Kors metallic gold canvas bag with rope straps is the PERFECT for Week O’Nautical bag!  This is such a great summer work bag and I’m very pleased I found this gem.

I of course had to pair this look with the Avon Little Red Dress Fragrance.  I mean, I said I LOVE a theme right!?   Plus, Little Red Dress Fragrance Line is on sale too during the Semi Annual Sale going on over at the eBoutique.  I love all the summer sales that go on this weekend!  If you haven’t already checked out my eBoutique be sure to follow me on IG (@wordofalicia) where I’m highlighting my pick of the day’s and some killer deals.  Plus, building fantasy carts gets you through these few short days before our long holiday weekend!

mark. Mod Eau De Parfume

NOTES
• Top Note: swinging medley of rose
• Middle Note: capucine florals
• Bottom Note: spicy nutmeg allure

Word Of Alicia:  I would call this scent clean and masculine, and I absolutely adore it!  It is something completely different than anything else in my fragrance wardrobe.  The first time I sampled it I was like eh… then I used it and really got to explore the notes and how they layer.  OBSESSED.  Plus it lasts all day,  and then some!  Much longer than most mark. fragrances.  This one smells way more expensive than $30 would suggest.  It also has a really good retro feel to fit the mod theme.

Word on mark. Mod Body Lotion:  This creamy, extra-rich companion lotion leaves skin feeling soft, silky and eau so MOD.  mark. MOD is a swinging medley of rose and capucine florals spiked with a spicy nutmeg allure. 6.7 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• Provides moisturization
• Has a creamy texture
• Absorbs quickly
• Leaves skin feeling soft and silky
• Lightweight
• Non-sticky and non-greasy

Word Of Alicia:  Free with the purchase of the fragrance… sold!  Layering this with the fragrance really lasted into the next day, used alone still gave me a lot of scent.  Its a good weight too, not too heavy not to light. I personally liked that it lasted, and was free, so win win!

Word on mark. Mod Pop Eyeshadow Pallet:  Pop goes the shadow. An exclusive limited edition eyeshadow palette with 12 all new shades! Get muted brights when applied dry and even bolder hues when swept on wet.

Word Of Alicia:  Let me just say that this is my new go-to pallet!  Besides having super cute packaging this pallet is the perfect size, portable and thin.  The pans are a really good size too, so a good amount of product with the 12 different shade options.  These shades are a really unique offering for holiday too… this is one you can use on the day to day and still get party looks for the season.  (check back for tomorrow’s look using it!).  I loved this pallet so much I made a swatch video of it so you can really see how wearable the shades are.  Very buildable as you can see during the swatches but also really long lasting.  If you liked the mark. On The Dot Pastels this will be a good replacement. After doing some pinning on all things mod I really saw how all these shades are quite retro and very much of the mod movement, but wear very modern.   100% satisfied.

What To Wear: Potluck

What To Wear: Potluck

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:

20161121_154502

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!
