Spring Fashion Jewelry Parade

Statement Cocktail Rings with rhinestone accents.
Statement Cocktail Rings

Hello gorgeous! Ready to make a fashion (jewelry) statement this Spring? Avon is really bringing it with Statement Jewelry and Jewelry Collections here in Campaign 6. Get ready for some beautiful viewing. I’ll provide you with links to items listed here. There are so many beautiful pieces and sets, you’ll want to be sure to view the complete Jewelry Category in case I may have missed your favorite style.

First up – you saw them, Avon’s new Statement Cocktail Rings. These are so fabulous. I’m not sure which is my favorite. I love them all. This is a very easy way to add a splash of glamour to your look, and they are listed at $10.99 each. Each one has little rhinestone accents going around the band. Avon’s calling these Glamour in Full Color – Gotta love it!

How about a Sparkling Champagne Jewelry Collection? Yes, please!

I love a silver and gold combo for jewelry. So versatile. You can wear combo jewelry with so many things and also incorporate them with other jewelry items of either silver or gold. I am linking you to the online brochure page for this set. You can click on any individual item and it will take you to that item’s page to purchase. There is an individual Long Necklace and then also a Necklace and Earring Set with the Champagne or Honey-Gold Stones. I love that watch too. And another Statement Ring, just $9.99. Cannot go wrong there.

And here’s a little inspiration for you:

Every jewelry piece in this collection has a message. Find what speaks to your soul. Love that. The whole set looks really great together. The Love Life Watch, plus the Believe, Breathe, and Love Bracelets. There are great prices on these too. Again, I am linking you to the online brochure page for these. You can click on your favorites. And do not forget those pretty little Elegant Rhinestone Bracelets pictured below there. Those are listed at $8.99 each. Those would look great stacked as well.

Let’s go Jet Set next!

Love the drama of this onyx look jewelry collection! So sleek and sexy! Each piece is sold separately, all at great prices, but the necklace and earrings come as a set. That’s a great deal for those. And, I’m sure you see a pattern by now. If I’m showing the collection page from the brochure, then yep, the link is going to the collection page in the online brochure so you have access to each piece collectively.

And, going in the opposite direction, next is a Modern Pearly Collection.

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any more gorgeousness, this faux pearl jewelry collection has some really interesting pieces. There’s a pearl choker necklace (so cute), an earring pack of 3 types of earrings, a ring set with 3 stackable rings, a layered stretch bracelet, and a strap watch with rhinestone accents. Here’s your link to the brochure page. Again, the prices are so affordable on each of these pieces.

Avon is now also carrying Sterling Silver Jewelry items. I’ll link you up to see those stunning pieces. The silver jewelry is guaranteed .925 quality and are over 90% pure silver. Avon Fine Jewelry.

I hope enjoyed this Avon Spring Fashion Jewelry Parade, and that you find yourself some stunners to wear (or gift!). Don’t forget to check out all the jewelry items. There’s so much more that didn’t make it into my little blog parade today.

Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

Say Merry Christmas to You! Treat Yourself and Try Something New

Hello everyone! How are you doing? I hope you’re enjoying your Holiday Season.

And while you’re enjoying your Holiday Season, I wanted to remind you to be sure to treat yourself. I know a lot of you are probably busy getting things all set for everyone else in your life, but make sure to take time to say Merry Christmas to you.

Perhaps treat yourself to a spa day if that’s what you enjoy. Or maybe a new do or makeover, or a little present just for you.

Do something for you that makes you happy, especially this year ladies.

I wanted to share with you, that in taking my own advice, I decided to treat myself to an upgrade for my Pixie Hair Do, and also treat myself to a gift of beauty. Nothing like a new do and beauty products to make me feel awesome!

I was chatting with my Hair Stylist, Whitney, about when I transformed my hair from the Bob Hairstyle that I used to wear (when I dyed my hair) to my now grown-out natural hair color and Pixie Hair Cut. It felt so great to take the leap and try something new. Whitney told me that you wouldn’t believe the number of women that come in and say that they really like a certain type of style or cut, but felt they were too “this or that” to pull it off. I say, “Go for it!”. Don’t be afraid to try something new. You may really like it!

Here’s a before and after pic of me. I’ve shared this previously here on my blog, but it’s been a while, so I thought I’d show you the transformation again for inspiration.

Before and After, From Bob Hairstyle to Pixie Cut

It really did a world of good for me! I fell in love with Pixie Cuts when Katy Perry was sporting one, but was a bit timid about going that short. I’m so glad I did. The inner me knew that this was for me. I’m still working on my look, changing things up here and there in my style. But I love it so much, and am now getting Pixie Undercut Styles – Wooo! I’ll be turning 56 in January, so hey! It does not matter what your numerical age is, werk it girlfriend!

AND — my next Christmas gift to myself was an Avon A-Box. You may remember seeing this one just a little while back. I sent everyone a coupon code offer to receive this beauty for free. Check it out —

The Avon A-Boxes are so fabulous. They are each filled with makeup and skincare goodies. Some of the beauty products are full-sized and some are travel or trial sized. My Spring Fling A-Box has Peony Rose Perfume (smells soooo pretty!), Lipstick, Lip Liner, and Anew Power Serum. What a treat and great gift to myself. I am really going to enjoy this.

Now, even though the time has expired to get a Spring Fling A-Box for yourself…. I know…. BUT — there is a new A-Box — Hooray!!

The Face the Day A-Box is a $37.00 value set, but you can snag it for only $10.00 with any $40.00 purchase! How awesome is that?

Includes:
• fmg Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Diamond Dust, .07 fl. oz.
• Avon True Color Lipstick in Candy Red, .106 oz net wt.
• The Face Shop Dr.Belmeur Cica Recovery Cream, .34 fl. oz.
• Anew Vitamin C Brightening Serum, .23 fl. oz.

This is a great gift to give yourself. Just think, when you’re shopping for someone else, you can snag this great goodie just for you! You have till this coming Tuesday, December 15th to order with Standard Delivery in time for Christmas, so I hope you get one for yourself.

And the Candy Red Lipstick? I definitely love it — it’s what I’m wearing in my new pic!

Avon releases a new A-Box every campaign, which is every 2 weeks, so you’ll want to be sure to be in-the-know when these cuties arrive. You can always purchase them at full price, or when you add them to your cart they are automatically just $10.00 when your other purchase amount is $40.00 or more.

Also, you may like to sign up for my email subscription list (Sign up on my Avon Website) so that you will not miss out on any freebies like the Spring Fling A-Box. That was a good one!

Okay gang, I hope this post has given you some inspiration, a nudge to treat yourself, break out of your comfort zone sometimes, and take a chance on something fresh and new. Merry Christmas to you!

Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

Beautiful Iconic Avon Starburst Pin

Iconic Avon Pin

They say it’s not nice to show off, but when I’m showing off something that you can also get for yourself, I suppose it’s alright. What do you think?

Well, I’m going to show you anyway! Haha! You probably know by now that I’m a stinker.

I’ve recently become obsessed with pins (or brooches). I’ve never really worn them a lot before. My Mom used to wear pins and brooches all the time. I actually have one that she gave me, probably from the 1950’s or 60’s. I remember it from my childhood. It was one of her favorites.

But anyway… I also love stars, so when I saw this Iconic Pin that Avon introduced as part of their 134th Anniversary/Christmas celebration jewelry lineup, I knew that I must have one.

Collector’s Pin from Avon

It is so pretty. The pictures I took do not do it enough justice. It’s really shiny.

Here is Avon’s official description:

CELEBRATING BEAUTY SINCE 1886
Enjoy a unique collection of products inspired by the rich heritage of a company that began its groundbreaking approach to beauty 134 years ago. The legacy continues with our exclusive anniversary-inspired jewelry pieces presented in Avon’s iconic designs.
Unique statement pieces with the look of stones set in goldtone.

FEATURES
• Collector’s pin
• Inscribed with ‘Avon 2020’ on the back
• 1 ¾” diam.
• Starburst-shaped pin

MATERIALS
• Goldtone plating

I love that it is a Collector’s pin. And it does have Avon 2020 inscribed on the back. Take a look:

Avon 2020 Inscribed on Back

I know I will enjoy this for years to come.

You can also enjoy this Collector’s pin for yourself. This lists for $22.99, but on my website it is $16.99. You can’t beat that for a collector’s item. It comes in a nice gift box (as shown in the pictures), so it is a really nice gift idea as well.

Here’s a direct link for you so you can check it out. Let me know if you snag one for yourself.

Merry Christmas shopping!

Avon Christmas 2020 is Here! Step Inside for a Parisian Holiday

Hello everyone! Are you ready for a Parisian Holiday? Yay!

I think this may be my favorite Avon Brochure cover yet. I love the Christmas in Paris theme this year. It’s just what we need to lift our spirits.

So, come on, step inside the C.24 Brochure with me for a look at our Parisian Holiday!

Avon’s Paris themed Christmas is a collection of chic limited-edition goodies full of vintage charm and romance, like Dreamlife Cologne, bottled in a very unique Eiffel Tower spray bottle. The perfume itself is a magical blend of mimosa flower, aspirational rose, and glowing amber. It arrives in a Parisian-themed gift box. How special would this be to give as a gift this year? And you know that this is going to be a collector’s item. So fun!

Say hello to Yvette. Isn’t she gorgeous?

You will find Yvette sitting pretty on Page 8 of the C.24 Brochure. She is filled with a fruity floral bubble bath. I love these vintage cat bubble bath decanters and am so happy to see them (well, her) make a come-back. I remember these from my childhood. Brings back really warm memories. Just imagine how she’ll warm someone else’s heart this year.

Hold the presses! This stunning beauty stopped me in my tracks!

Avon has pulled out all the stops for this gorgeous Statement Necklace, and it’s only $44.99. Fete Fabulous, indeed! You can find this beautiful necklace on page 13.

And accompanying the Statement Necklace, check out what’s on Page 12:

Avon has released another collection of Iconic Jewelry for Christmas this year. This collection truly has a romantic vintage look and feel. I am definitely eyeballing the Starburst Pin. I think it is going to be my “must-have” item this year. I have really been enjoying wearing brooches again, they’ve seemed to have made a come-back, at least in my heart.

Let’s see, how about some Christmas home decor to swoop you away to France?

I love that they’re calling it Bonjour Decor. It’s so beautiful and luminous. I think my favorite may be the Light-Up Cutout Star. How about you? Which is grabbing at your heart-strings? You can shop the entire collection on pages 16-17.

And my last, but not least, favorite pick from this Parisian excursion of holiday joy, is some makeup, of course! We’re backing it up to Pages 6-7.

Vive Le Makeup! On Page 6 you’ll see the City of Light Illumiator Powders. These little containers are so cute and so fun to use. I got one last year from that season’s style, and I really love it. The little powder puff is adorable and so soft. Very easy to apply color to your cheeks with the fluffy puff, and it’s just different and very feminine. This year’s collection of illuminating powders are delicate and illuminating. They add a lasting touch of radiance to your face and neck areas. The color choices are Charm, Bonjour, and Champagne.

You will find the Love in Paris Eye Palette on Page 7, along with the Dazzle Me Makeup Brush Set and Voilette Veil Holographic Lip Gloss. These are all very giftable makeup items, in very gorgeous colors. Check out all the glittery eyeshadows in the Paris Eye Palette.

Love in Paris Eye Palette

I hope you enjoyed your Parisian Christmas tour and that you’ll stop by and stroll throughout the entire C.24 Brochure. There is still a lot to see that we did not visit here.

You can also stroll through the Virtual Catalog – Click Here. It’s really cute. The kitty cats on the front cover come to life.

Avon’s Holiday Gift Guide is also up – You can browse the different categories and experience all the magic for yourself.

It’s all so fun and very exciting! I’m so happy that the Holiday Season is now upon us, and I’m very happy to share all the joy with you!

What Colors Look Best on You? Your Personal Color Analysis

Do you know what colors look the best on you? Which are more flattering to your skin tone, eye color, and hair color?

Well, that’s what we’re here to find out.

Performing Color Analysis is something I learned to do many years ago while in Beauty Consultant training. This was in the late 80’s, to give you an idea. The concept of Color Analysis has been around for quite some time now, and is a great way to help you coordinate your wardrobe, your accessories, and your makeup, to enhance your unique complexion.

Using Color Analysis, I learned how to determine someone’s Color “Season”. There are 4 Color Seasons, just as there are 4 Seasons in nature. Winter, Summer, Spring, and Autumn. It’s very fun to experiment and find out your Color Season, so let’s go!

To determine which you are, you can try several different methods that are quick and easy. Firstly, what is your skin’s undertone? Do you have a pink undertone, or are you more golden? Pink will indicate a “cool” undertone, and gold (or olive) indicates a “warm” undertone. You can also check the veins on the underside of your wrists. Are your veins blue, or green? Blue is cool, green is warm.

The next thing I would suggest is color draping. You can use clothes from your closet, or get a variety of clothes in various colors to try out when you’re shopping. But very simply, drape different colors of fabrics right beneath your face to see which colors make your skin color, eye color, and lip color “pop”. Do you look best in reds and hot pinks? Or do you look better in golds and browns? This is one of the quickest tests, using these particular colors. If you have golden undertones, your skin will radiate beautifully in golds and browns, whereas if you have pink undertones, they will be enhanced with the bright pinks and reds.

Wearing the Right Colors Can Be Magical

Next, what Season are you?

This will be determined by both 1. your skin undertone (which you will have assessed already if you are cool or warm), plus 2. the lightness or darkness of your hair, eyebrows, and eye color.

If you have a cool, pink undertone and dark features such as dark skin, hair and brows, and dark eyes, you are a Winter. You can also have very light skin with dark features – like me – I am a Winter.

True Color

Winters look fabulous in bold cool tones such as black, hot pinks, bright purples, royal blues, and cool reds. The bolder the color the better for you!

Now, if you are cool but have lighter colored hair and eyes, you are a Summer.

Glimmershadows

You look beautiful in the same color tones as a Winter, but softer. You really rock those soft grays, pinks, lavenders, light blues, and softer reds like raspberry.

For you gorgeous warm toned beauties, if you have darker skin, hair and eyes, you are an Autumn. And again, you may have light skin with dark features and be an Autumn.

Mono Pop Palette

The colors that really bring out the warmth in your skin are golden browns, pumpkin, marigold, olive greens, and teal.

On the lighter side of Autumn is Spring. If you have a warm undertone and lighter features, these colors are perfect for you:

Iconic Beauty

Spring is to Autumn as Summer is to Winter – a lighter version of the same color palette.

Springs will shine in lighter browns, warm golds and oranges, softer olive greens and teals.

One thing I must point out, is that black and white are neutral tones and can be worn by all Color Seasons.

I would recommend beiges or off-whites though, over white, for Springs and Autumns. It will enhance your natural coloring better.

Knowing your Color Season is a great way to be a very savvy shopper. You can coordinate your clothing, accessories, and makeup colors much easier. Always look for colors in your Seasonal palette and you’ll be coordinating like a rock star while you magically enhance your natural beauty all at the same time.

One of the first things you may want to shop for after determining your Color Season is your makeup foundation. This is the very first basic stepping stone to enhancing your natural skin tone. Here is the Cashmere Complexion color-chart to help you find the perfect foundation shade for your skin:

Cashmere Complexion Foundation

The Cashmere Foundations are divided into Light, Tan-Medium, and Deep shades. You will then see each shade begins with either an N, W, or C. These stand for Neutral, Warm, and Cool. Are you warm or cool? I am a cool Winter with very light pink toned skin, so my foundation shade choice is C110 Shortcake. It is a perfect match for me. I love it so much. My natural tone can shine through uninterrupted yet I still get the coverage I need. Check out my blog post all about Cashmere Complexion Foundation.

And now that you know all about your Color Season, I hope you enjoy experimenting with all your colors. You can try on different makeup shades virtually – Visit my Makeover Tool Here.

Another tip for you — if you have a favorite color that you love to wear and it is not in your Color Season palette, no worries, simply put something that is in your color palette close to your face. Try a scarf or jewelry items, or even a bright lipstick that will shine above the other color. There is no need to completely eliminate colors that are not in your palette. Perhaps some pants in your favorite color (that’s not in your palette), teamed with a blouse that is. Just play with it, and have fun!
