mark. Neutral Territory Bag

mark. Neutral Territory Bag

This camel colored bag with clean structured shape is the perfect bag for now through fall!  It will look equally chic with a white tank and jean shorts as it does with your fall knits!  This is my top pick and what I’m for sure ordering!

mark. Closely Linked Bracelet

mark. Closely Linked Bracelet

The mixed metals and textures will be perfect for pretty much any outfit.  I’m a bracelet person and this is kind of like the bracelet version of a statement necklace.  Again another wear now and later piece!

Avon’s Home Fragrance Tripple Wick Candles in Autumn Day, Fresh Apple, Whipped Pumpkin and Salted Camel are a definite must!  Stock up now because they’re under $10 and all the perfect fall scents!  This are also handy to have to on hand for last minute gifts for birthdays, hostess, etc.  Plus it’s a better price than Bath and Body Works and just as good!

Mercury Glass Pumpkin with LED Lights

Definitely need a little home decor to accent your fall candles so this LED light up mercury glass pumpkin is it!  Fall decor just makes things a little bit more cozy as the cooler weather creeps in.  The warm glow from the light up pumpkin just helps it along!

Avon Touch Of Lace Top

Avon Touch Of Lace Top

Wear it now with shorts and sandals or wear it later with a blazer and jeans this top is a great little neutral number with a touch of lace!  Classic and versatile!

Avon Glam Time Heel

Avon Glam Time Heel

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

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!

Honestly there is something for everyone in this little fall preview sale but at the very least head over to http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and take a peek on what’s coming up this fall season.  I personally will be taking advantage of this little deal and I hope you will to!  Remember to use promo code AVONFB75 for an extra 20% off!

Trending Tuesday – #fallpreview

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!

…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

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!
