Christmas in July Goodies and Gifts!

Hey everyone! Hope you’ve been celebrating and enjoying Christmas in July!

My Husband, Willie, and I certainly have. We’ve been watching Christmas movies, there’s Christmas music playing on my favorite radio station, and I just ordered a small Christmas tree for our fireplace area.

I really enjoy inviting the Christmas spirit and feel in during the middle of the year, it’s so fun.

So, to wrap up this month of Christmas joy, not only is Avon hosting a Summer Sizzling Sale featuring Christmas items, but I have also just sent all my Email A-Listers (2) Coupon Gift Codes to use by the end of July. Woo Hoo! Be sure to check your emails tomorrow, and if you know me, you know what I’m going to say next — If you’re not already one of my fabulous Email A-Listers, you can go sign up right now on my Avon website. Just scroll down to the bottom of the Home Page and you will see where it prompts you to Sign Up. Be sure to contact me to let me know that you’re in, so I can send you the same gift codes as everyone else.

When you shop Avon’s Summer Sizzling Sale items and purchase $50+, you will receive Yvette, Pretty Purrfect Bubble Bath, for free.

Isn’t she a beauty? The Yvette Bubble Bath is a $40.00 value.

You do not need a coupon code to receive her with a $50.00 purchase from the Summer Sizzling Sale Items, so that means you could also use one of the coupon codes I just sent you to receive either (a) a free gift, or (b) a discount. PLUS, with a $60+ order I pick up the tab for your shipping. No coupon code needed for that either, so yay! Your early Christmas shopping is off with a very giftful bang!

Here are some of my favorite Sizzling Summer Sale (Christmas in July) items for your look-see:

This festive Holiday Light Up Scene with Santa was originally priced at $64.99, but is now listed for $25.99. It plays 8 popular Christmas Song.

This 60’s inspired Wreath Pin is collectible with AVON engraved on the reverse. This was originally listed for $34.99, and is now $15.99. I own several Avon pins, and they are fabulous. I’m so happy to see pins and brooches making a come-back.

All of these light up Christmas decorations are among the sale items – the house with chimney (candle luminary), the 2 trees, and the star.

Here’s the Light-Up Cut Out Star. I really like this one. It was originally priced at $36.99, and is now $18.49.

Mouse Shelf Sitters. These little Christmas Mouse plush cuties light up! Each was listed for $32.99, now $16.49 each.

You can even get in the Christmas spirit with the aromas of the season. The Avon Senses Shower Gel, Body Mist, and Body Lotion are all included in the sale and have a fragrance blend of fresh apple, icy melon, and twinkly vanilla flakes (gotta love that description!). The body mist was listed for $18.00, and is now $9.00.

And last, but not least:

I know this doesn’t scream Christmas, but it’s very pretty, and would make a very lovely Christmas gift.

I hope you find some favorite items for your Christmas in July shopping and gift-giving coming up in December. There are many items to look through, including gift sets, jewelry, watches, makeup, fragrance, fashion, etc., and everything is highly discounted.

Remember to check your email tomorrow for your gift codes, or go sign up and contact me to receive yours. Here is a peek at what you can receive:

The Romance Me, Pamper Me A-Box is not listed for sale, so you are extra special, and can only receive this via the gift code that is exclusively for you, sent to your email.

Cheers!

Eat Your Black-Eyed Peas at Midnight for Good Luck! Happy New Year!

Who’s ready to ring in 2021? I know I am! Woo Hoo! I am so ready to just put 2020 in the rear-view mirror, be thankful for making it through intact (and with much gained new gratitude), and head into this new year with very high hopes.

And with high hopes at the beginning of every new year, eating black-eyed peas right after Midnight has been a family tradition that my husband and I have acknowledged since we were first married, 37 years ago. This came from his dear mother, Reba, who always told us to “Eat your black-eyed peas at Midnight for good luck!” It’s one of those southern “thangs” I suppose. I know it dates back to the Civil War. But for us it’s just fun, and something that we look forward to every New Year’s Eve. Which, I’ve got to get mine going here in just a few. I like to let them cook long and slow so they get thickened up really good, and they are hot and ready to serve right after the stroke of Midnight.

Do not want to leave anything to chance this year, right? 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s celebration and that you have family traditions of your own that you enjoy. I’d love to hear all about your traditions. Feel free to leave a comment below!

Cheers to you and yours! Cheers to a very prosperous 2021 for all of us! Cheers to good health for all in 2021!

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!

And if you’re looking to shop online this year, well, I have some fun goodies to share with you. Yay!

There is so much to enjoy browsing Avon’s new Christmas Brochure. We are now in Campaign 26 – belif in miracles – gifts that make your holiday wishes come true. You’re going to enjoy all the fabulous (and affordable) offerings. And since there is so much to view and choose from, I went through and picked out a few of my definite faves, you know, in case you’re shopping for me!

Dear Santa,

I love you and I love this gorgeous genuine Garnet Jewelry Set.

Sincerely,

Jfay

Think that will work? Haha! But I really do love this set. If you’re looking for fine jewelry to gift this year, these are gorgeous genuine Garnet and .925 sterling silver. The Garnet necklace stone is 1 1/2 carats, the Garnet ring is 1 carat, and the Garnet earrings are each 1 1/2 carats. Each piece is sold separately, making it easy to choose your favorite(s).

Another fine jewelry trio that caught my eye is Avon’s Sterling Silver CZ Winter Flower Jewelry Collection.

How beautiful are those? Again, each is sold separately. You can choose the Sterling Silver CZ Winter Flower Necklace, Ring, or Earrings, or mix and match.

Avon’s just released a romantic floral fragrance, LYRD Bouquet De Freesia.

This smells very beautiful. It is a blend of sweet freesia, tulip, and warm amber.

AND — I found some really great makeup value sets in the Glam Tidings Brochure:

The Glam Eyes Trio includes Black Mascara and Eye Liner, plus your choice of Liquid Eyeshadow. There are 9 Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow shades to choose from. This set is a $30.00 value, on special for $16.50. That’s fabulous!

And check out the Pout Perfection 2-Piece Set:

This set includes a Beyond Color Lip Conditioner and an Avon True Color Lipstick (shade of your choice). This is a $22.00 value set, on special for $11.00. It’s pretty much buy one get one free. There are 15 lipstick shades to choose from. You could get 1 set for every lady on your list plus one for yourself!

A great hint for you when you’re checking out the Avon Brochure online – Check all the special little insert brochures that you can see peeking out from behind the main brochure. There are always little hidden “gems” in these sometimes overlooked booklets. Click Here to see what I’m talking about.

You can also shop the new Christmas Brochure Digitally – Click Here.

Here is a link directly to Avon’s Holiday Gift Guide. You will find gift ideas by price point, like gifts under $15.00, gifts under $25.00, etc., plus gift ideas by category. Makes it fun and easy to find what you’re looking for.

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!
