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.

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.

If you’re like me, you’re stuck at work.   And basically half the office, along with half the States, is out already for the holiday posting their awesome swoon-worthy-not-stuck-in-a-cube-worthy instagrams.  Or maybe you’re home cleaning up the house for your weekend BBQ, or packing for your getaway.   Regardless, you need a playlist to get the long weekend vibes going and get through the super lame Thursday.  So if you enjoy some dope beats, throw my youtube playlist up with the chrome cast, blast it from your portable speakers like the mark. Great Play Portable Speakers ($32) or play on your computer as you countdown the minutes to the end of the work day!

Word Of Alicia:  July 2014 Playlist

YG – Who Do You Love?  ft. Drake — “And my name too big, and my gang too big, Young Money s-, me and Lil Wayne too big, I’mma crush that a- even if it ain’t too big, I would pinky swear but my pinky ring too big, Wassup”

T.I. – No Mediocre ft. Iggy Azalea — “Heels on me saying gimme 6 inches of space”

DJ Snake & Lil Jon – Turn Down for What  — I’ve yet to find a situation where the phrase “turn down for what” is not appropriate.

Iggy Azalea – Change Your Life ft. T.I. — hitting repeat on iggy lately, pretty blonde and a quick tongue, yep yep!

Ty Dolla $ign – Paranoid ft. B.o.B  — creepy video, killer beat

Tyga – Wait For A Minute ft. Justin Bieber — do not, I repeat, DO NOT watch the video while listening because then you’ll see what skinny pip-squeaks Tyga and the Biebs are and it completely discredits the smooth song.  And then you’ll realize you like a Justin Bieber song (well, feature).  YOU CAN NOT BE HARD IN SKINNY JEANS, I’m talking to you too Lil’ Wayne.

IGGY AZALEA – Murda Bizness ft. T.I. (Official Video) — The video tickles my funny bone, a lot.

Drake – HYFR  — shout out to the Rabbi and the Chabad house!  (but I do not miss being your maid)

Adrian Marcel – 2AM. ft. Sage The Gemini — Sage the Gemini, “turn it up”

T.I. – About The Money ft. Young Thug — The word art on the video makes my eyes happy.  Can you geek out over word art?

Tinashe – 2 On (Explicit) ft. SchoolBoy Q — shoulder isolations all day son!

Eric Bellinger – I Don’t Want Her ft. Problem – you sample kris kross, I will love you.  period.

Tyga – Rack City — Rack City will never get old, NEVER!  “Rack city b-, rack, rack city b- Ten ten ten twenties on ya t- b-”

Disclosure – Latch feat. Sam Smith — What!?  Rack city to Latch seems completely appropriate in a playlist to me…

Nico & Vinz – Am I Wrong — just a good listen all the way around.

Maroon 5 – Maps —  when did I become a decent Maroon 5 fan?

MAGIC! – Rude — just a good summer song to end it out on.  peace!
