Open up your Spotify/Amazon music and stream that JT album becasue 2020 is here and I’m here for it! Plus starting your year with a little Justin Timberlake sounds like a pretty good idea to me.  Been a minute over here at the blog, but hopefully you’ve been with me over on IG/Facebook.

2020 Vision:  I’m not one really into new years resolutions but I do like a fresh start and we all know I love themeing out anything so new year same me.  So for this year my theme is better connections, even if its 1 sided.  Wear more perfume in 2020.  I was gifted a new scent this Christmas and just made me realize how that is something I always forget, so I want to use this fragrance collection of mine.  Today I’m wearing Live Out Loud, which every time I wear it, I get complimented.  It has to be one my favorite new beauty products of 2019 for 2020.

Wear more fragrance in 2020

2020 is taking me traveling.  I am excited beyond belief, that with the help of some of you, I was able to earn the free trip to Jamaica through Avon.  A new place that my husband and I can explore, that without Avon could not of done.  Additionally, we have a Cabo trip planned for our friends wedding 😉  I’m also planning to add some more traveling for 2020, explore more of this state of California, a convention in Texas, and work to see some of my favorite people… better connections in 2020.

Made it!

2020 Refresh:  I’m just excited to start fresh.  Bye Felicia!  (and by Felicia I mean 2019)  I’m ready to hit refresh on my closet, on my organization, on being timely, on my life.  I’m ready for some fresh trends, activities, home decor, etc…  I’ll also be refreshing my Facebook.  If you are in my group or follow my page you’ll notice the title is “mark. and Avon by Alicia” or mark. by Alicia in 2020 that’s changing to Word of Alicia.

Word Yo!

2020 20:  Top 20 lists are just kind of a given in 2020.  Word of Alicia will be no different!  I’ll be doing lots of my top 20s, starting with 20 Lip of The Day’s as we countdown to Valentine’s Day.  And my top 20 for winter, centered around what I’m loving right now…  like everything gray!  Found some great gray jeans for $11 (hello after Christmas sales!), doing a gray mani, and currently on the hunt for a grey beret!

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.
