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

Trending Tuesday: December Inspo

Hello December! You’re the last so you have to be the best!  December I feel is the quickest month with the countdown to Christmas and all you have to get done, but before it’s here and gone here’s what’s inspiring me to make the most of the month:

1. Holiday Plaid

Work Gifts:

My favorite little gift idea is pairing a hand cream and a nail polish together.  Tie them together with a pretty ribbon and add a tag that reads “for your mistle toes!”  The Avon holiday hand creams are 2 for 1.75 pair it with the Avon polish or the mark. Nailed It Duos!

Guy Gift:

Avon Attraction For Him - 3 piece set for $30

Avon Attraction For Him – 3 piece set for $30

Guys are always hard to shop for which is why I love gifting cologne.  Something they want but rarely go out and buy it for themselves.  My favorite from Avon is the Luck for him but the new Attraction is popular scent (3 piece set for $30) or pick up one of the other collection sets like Black Suede ($9.99 an oldie but a goodie) or Avon Instinct ($16.99).  Those bundle prices are unreal for men’s cologne!

Avon Luck For Him - any 2 for $22

Avon Luck For Him – any 2 for $22

 

Hostess Gift:

Wine Glass and Plate Set - $29.99

Wine Glass and Plate Set – $29.99

There are so many cute hostess gift ideas from the new collection, Avon Living that was introduced this season.  What I’m loving are the stemless wine glasses and cocktail wine plates that fit right over your glass.  These two are bundled together for only $30!  Such a cute and unique idea that they’ll actually use!

What To Wear: Black Friday Shopping

 

What To Wear:  Black Friday

What To Wear: Black Friday

We’re almost to my favorite holiday… Black Friday!  (I kid, I kid) but I do love a good shopping day trip especially when there are mega sales and festive holiday spirit galore!  Don’t let the day get cut short by not wearing the right things.  Here are few tips for dressing for Black Friday.

1. Start With The Right Shoes

Wear A Walkable Shoe

Wear A Walkable Shoe

If your feet are miserable you are miserable.  It’s that simple.  So wear something walkable, comfortable and warm.  A good riding boot/flat boot is always a good choice or a bootie with a thick low heel like these burgundy ones from mark.

Hmm what to buy this black Friday!?

Hmm what to buy this black Friday!?

2.  Dress in Layers

Layer Up A Cami, Sweater, Jacket, Scarf

Layer Up A Cami, Sweater, Jacket, Scarf

You’re going to go from cold to warm to hot so dress in layers that you can easily strip off.  I like wearing a open front cardi sweater because for me it’s the perfect not to hot not to cold layer.  AND when you’re shopping especially on a busy day like black friday you’re not going to wait in line for fitting rooms.  This way you can easily take it off and try on tops/sweaters/jackets even if you’re just getting an idea of how something runs as you gift hunt.

3.  Bring The Right Jacket

Wearing The mark. Luck Of The Draw Anorak

Wearing The mark. Luck Of The Draw Anorak

Standing out in the lines (if you do such a thing) can get cold or start to rain/snow so a longer jacket with a hood is a good bet.  Double bonus if it has a lot of pockets so you can stash things like change and your phone quickly.

4.  Go Hands Free

Hands Free With mark. Good Things Mini Bag

Hands Free With mark. Good Things Mini Bag

Wear a cross body bag so you’re not bogged down by a big satchel.  This will help keep you hands free for touching the merchandise and being an efficient shopper!

5.  Bring a scarf and hair tie.  

Scarf and Ring - mark.

Scarf and Ring – mark.

A scarf will just be that added warmth when you’re outside or when you’re just a bit to hot for your jacket.  I know this seems super random but nothing is worse when you’re hairs all in your face when you’re fighting the shoppers and weather!   These two accessories are your must haves.

Happy National Lipstick Day! (and Get A Free Lipstick and Lipgloss!)

Today is National Lipstick Day and in honor I thought I’d share my lip favorites lately and a FREE Lipstick offer!

Summer Time Go-To:  Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon (NOW ONLY $4.99). This formula wears more like a glossy balm and has a bit of shine and extremely nourishing and I love it.  The easy melon coral shade is super flattering for an every day shade during the summer.

 

Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Creamy Melon

Basic Neutral:  Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Tender Mauve (NOW ONLY $4.99)  This is one of those matches your natural lip color shades so it’s good for a wear to work day shade.

Spicy Shade:  Avon Ultra Color Indulgence Lip Color in Chocolate Rose (NOW ONLY $4.99!) Brown shades are super on trend right now but this one is a little spicy with some red undertones.  This kind of shade is  a great way to wear a bold shade without being to loud.

{Sidenote:  obiviously I’m really digging this mark. Box Set Necklace ($24.00).  It just always goes!  All 3 pics were taken on different days and yes I wear black that often}

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.

These are what I’ve been wearing lately but if you just look through the archives (like here and here) you can see I totally love mark. and Avon lip colors!  Even better is that most of these are on mega sale at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger BUT TODAY ONLY get a FREE Lipstick and Lipgloss with a $50 purchase!  (if you missed my week of sales post from yesterday that’s today’s promo!)  In addition comment below on your favorite lip shade and type (lipstick, gloss, etc) and I’ll send you a free lip sample!

The Must-Have Spring (and beyond) Jacket – mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak

Your Must-Have Jacket For Spring

Your Must-Have Jacket For Spring

Everyone and their mother has a list of must-haves, wardrobe staples, etc, etc… but there are actually are a few things that pop up on all those lists every time for a reason!  One of those is an anorak jacket.  Not only is it functional, but it’s also super on trend and also a classic.  (is that an oxymoron?)  I own safari type jackets that are similar but not a true anorak.  Then mark. came out with this Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak and I was smitten.  But do I really need another jacket?  I really don’t like army green, is this really a must-have?  Well, after seeing a billion awesome looks on pinterest and reading a million different must-haves, wardrobe staples, etc, etc lists I decided yes I need another jacket!  So glad I did because even if it’s not my ideal color this is my ideal jacket!  Honestly, you never really have buyers remorse on a jacket, it will last you years and you can wear it every day if you really want to.

mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak

mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak

The mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak is a true anorak style.  It has a longer length, multiple pockets and a hood.  What sets this one apart is it’s ruching details on the sleeves and the ability to cinch it at the waist.  The material is a nice weight, canvas like cotton so not only will it look chic on but it will withstand the elements.

Wearing mark. Luck Of The Drawstring Anorak With A Lace Pencil Skirt

Let’s call it like it is, this really isn’t an Alicia jacket.  I’m not really casual and as stated I’m not a huge fan of army green.  But you know what is very Alicia?  Pairing it with a lace pencil skirt!  Pairing 2 very different styles pays off, because how cute are these 2 together?!  The mix of casual and dressy achieves a very wearable and approachable look.  You could also recreate this look with some white crochet shorts for summer of even lace/crochet pants that are trendy right now.  This just shows the versatility out of such a classic jacket.

It’s really worth it to break out of your comfort zone and try a style that you typically wouldn’t buy.  Especially when it’s a style that’s a classic must-have for a reason!  That’s why I really like trend brands like mark., you can try the style at an affordable price (especially when there’s a coupon! like AVONFB20 for 20% off at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger).

I’m not going to lie, a little bit of what sold me on it is all the cool girls have one.  You might recognize it from Jill in our last Spring Style Tips post on spring layers, but she also paired it with jeans and navy and white striped shirt for the perfect casual outfit, see more here.  I was not only inspired by cool girl Jill’s cute styling of this jacket but also all those cool girls on pinterest.  Here’s a few reasons why this jacket pops up on every must-have list:

Monthly Edit – What To Buy In February

If you’re anything like me you constantly feel like you want to just go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, but don’t have the budget, or honestly, the closet space to do so.  But I do love new things and being strategic and smart on my purchases, so instead of going all out each season add few key items each month that expand on what you have and keep you trendy and feeling good!  I’ve already shared my must-haves for January, here’s my word on February picks!

 

A new pink lip color and multi-tasking shimmer pallet:

mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me

mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me

Nothing is better than adding a little glow to pale winter skin.  Go with soft shades of pink and shimmer to perk up winter complexions.  mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me ($11) is an easy investment plus it wears like a balm so you prevent chapped lips while getting the perfect light pink shade!  Pair it with the mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes ($16) for a super easy look with a super versatile pallet.  Check out my look with it here.

mark. Touch and Glow

mark. Touch and Glow

 

A sparkly statement necklace:

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Sick of wearing scarfs yet?  Try switching out a scarf with a sparkly necklace on those days when you’re not freezing!  Pair it with a chambray shirt for major impact that’s on trend and perfect for achieving the no- quite-spring-yet-look (as in with your leggings and boots).  mark. Clear Choice Necklace ($38) is the clear choice for this (see what I did there) and will work with your winter looks straight through to your summer looks!  {pic cred:  sealaura}

 

A spring scarf:

mark. Four Seasons Scarf

mark. Four Seasons Scarf (and wearing Baby Me on lips)

Not sick of wearing scarfs, then grab a new spring scarf in a lighter weight fabric and fun spring print.  I like the mark. Four Seasons Scarf ($18) because it’s super oversized!  I can wrap up in this baby and stay perfectly warm while wearing a print that just makes me spring-happy.  Plus this guy can transition into spring and summer not only as a scarf but also as a coverup for shoulder baring dresses (maybe during wedding season!?) or even at the beach!  Now that $18 seems even more appealing!

See how long this guy is!

See how long this guy is!

 

A new luxurious bath line:

mark. Naked Love

LOVE mark. Naked Love

Time to save winter skin and smell fresh for spring!  I can’t get over my excitement for the mark. Naked Love bath and body line.  This is probably my top pick (and favorite body line) in a long time.  Every time I lather up in the shower I’m immediately a little happier AND that gorgeous packaging makes me even more happy!  We’re over those deep scents from winter, but the notes of apricot nectar, white peaches, velvet freesia and skin musk are perfect for this time of year and beyond.  Whipped Up Body Butter is also super nourishing for winter skin.  It preps us for the upcoming skin-baring season.  This way, when those first few warm days hit we’ll be ready.

 

A chiffon layered top:

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

It’s hard to shop for clothes in February because we’re SO over buying those dark bulky winter items but it’s not quite warm enough for all those new spring arrivals.  So stick with buying tops that can work with many types of bottoms and in soft shades that work for winter and spring.  I’m loving the mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt ($28) for these exact reasons.  I can pair this with jeans for a casual look, or dress it up with a skirt or slim fitting dress pants.  The chiffon layer really let’s you dress it up, plus it takes away some of the bulk but still gives you that layered look!  I’m also looking forward to wearing this guy with shorts on those warmer days… like a cute pair of white denim shorts would look amazing with this!

BONUS:  An on-clearance favorite!

February is the best time to shop winter clearance finds!  Some of my favorites from fall and holiday releases are now marked down super low!  Like this top, necklace, clutch, polish set and MORE!  (all on clearance at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger)

 

Final Word of Alicia:

None of these items will break the bank (like under $150 for all of them, ALL of them!) and are new and now for February and beyond.  I also love how I can pair them with my January top picks and breath some 2015 life into my 2014 (and older, yikes!) wardrobe.  It’s like a breath of fresh air!   If you can only budget 1 thing this month my pick is the mark. Naked Love bath and body set ($34.99 for 6 pieces).  You can shop the items here and get 20% off with promo code AVONFB20
