Modern Southern Belle: Linda

Meet Modern Southern Belle Linda!  Linda, a fellow Avon representative, is optimistic, fun and effervescent.  If you’ve caught any of her videos (live on FB or on her YouTube channel) you’ll easily agree.   Which is why she’s no stranger to Word of Alicia to dose in some fun.  (see here!)  She’s a true Southern Belle from Virginia, so her modern take is kinda straight from the horse’s mouth.

Hello Spring

Avon Modern Southern Belle

Avon Modern Southern Belle

With the Avon Southern Belle collection there are so many options to mix and match!  Pair the Blue Strip Michelle Boatneck Top with the Cobalt Annabelle Cardigan and you have comfort, style and modern southern belle charm. The 100% cotton boatneck top has a flattering cut and is definitely on trend with stripes. The fine-knit, long-sleeve sweater with pearl-like button closure feels so soft and is this season’s must have layering piece. Both the striped top and cardigan are wardrobe essentials.

TGIF: Clean Friday Favorites

TGIF!  Maybe it’s because last weekend was spent being dirty camping in the Sierras, but this week I’ve been favoriting everything so fresh and so clean clean!

Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual Sale

Bath and Body Works Haul

Bath and Body Works Haul

We needed more hand soap and how perfect is it that the Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual sale is going on.  So not only did I get more soap I also walked away with some new home fragrance in summertime scents.  I walked away with all of this for under $30!  Usually I don’t leave the sale under $60 but I restrained this time… but it’s a great time to stock up on your favorites especially if you pair it with a coupon.  So Fri-Yay for cheap clean hands for me!

Anew Clean 

Anew Clean Cleansers

Anew Clean Cleansers

New arrivals hit the eboutique this week including the new Avon Anew Clean cleansers and vibrating cleansing brush.  I’ve wanted a cleansing brush for years and never got one so I was SUPER excited when I saw this was coming out, but this week I got a chance to use and it love it as much as expected!  And these new cleanser are legit, I love the Everyday Scrub.  Full review coming soon but these are all now available and at a special intro price so check them out!  So Fri-Yay for new clean face for me!

Clean White Suit

Heidi Klum In Clean White on AGT

Summer TV means the return of America’s Got Talent, which is a little reality tv pleasure in our house.  Judging by Grace and her golden ticket it’s going to be a good season.  As much as I love variety show acts Heidi Klum and Mel B usually are styled expertly!  Heidi has always been a personal favorite but when I saw her in her white suit, red lips, gold eye, statement ring and bright red nails I was smitten!  I scoured the internet trying to find a picture but came up empty handed.  So you’ll have to watch the vide to see :).  Now if only I can recreate this in a summer friendly way.  So Fri-Yay for clean white inspo!

And Fri-Yay! to the weekend!

You might recognize the shoes from yesterday, and the necklace from Wednesday but they’re Athe perfect nautical accents I had to wear them again.  Additionally, I added my go-to blue bag from Christian Siriano for Payless, and added this nautical bandana from Target for a little more nautical fun.

Summer Time Treat:  Infused Water!

Infused Water For Your Weekend

Infused Water For Your Weekend

This was probably the best idea as of late.  Fill multiple mason jars with your favorite fruit, fill with water and refrigerate.  Grab and go options that are not only tasty, refreshing and portable but also super cute and pinterest worthy!  How great would these look on your picnic table this weekend!?  Mine includes lemon, cucumber, strawberries, blueberries and kiwi.

Casual Friday!

Red Lace OOTD

Red Lace OOTD

Casual Friday might not be so casual around here, nor is it that nautical, but red white and blue for the win! See the last time I shared this dress here.  Paired today’s OOTD with a red lip (Avon), mark. jewelry and some summer heels (Steve Madden).

Mini playlist on repeat as of late.  Don’t be discouraged by the image of the Biebs… it’s Skrillex so enough said.
