I know it’s almost mid-February – But hey! This little booklet just showed up and it was hiding some pretty good little secrets inside. Always be sure to check the special little insert brochures – both when handed to you in person, and also online – you can find all kinds of specials and bundle deals that you’ll not find in the regular brochure or when shopping by category online.
Do you remember all of the fabulous and gorgeous limited edition products that were released during Christmas time? Well, there are a lot of those on special discount right now in the special insert brochure named Good Buys. Here’s a direct link to the Good Buys online brochure. This link will only be good till February 18th, and then a new campaign will be loaded. If see this post after the 18th, you can still shop my Avon website anytime and click on the menu category BROCHURE to find the latest Campaign brochure plus the special insert brochures that are currently posted.
But, back to the Good Buys brochure — There is fashion – men’s and woemen’s jewelry – makeup – perfume sets – men’s cologne sets – men’s and women’s watches – Christmas themed gifts and home decor – kid’s stuff – and more! You’ll definitely want to check this out. As I’ve been looking through the brochure, the biggest savings I’ve seen so far on a product is $33.00 – Woo Hoo!
Here are some of the items currently listed at a special sale price in the Good Buys brochure:
I cannot believe there are still Oh What Fun Makeup Mega Palettes available! You’ve gotta snag you one of those! I LOVE mine and use it all the time. There are so many colors, and it folds up, and is compact to take with you when you travel. It’s a definite must-have item for all of you makeup fashionistas.
OH, and the Sparkling Vanilla Champagne items – I’m definitely getting more of the hand cream. It smells sooo good.
I hope you enjoy looking through the special insert Good Buys brochure, and find some wonderful deals for yourself.
Happy Monday everyone! What’s new and happening with you? I can tell you that there is definitely a whole lotta new and happening going on over here in Avon Land. It’s all so exciting, and tomorrow is Campaign 4 launch day, with even more new goodness. My head is spinning! But in a good way.
One thing I can tell you about the new items being released by Avon, is that they are definitely more luxe, and this is intentional. With our new CEO at the helm, Avon is going in a new, upward, and definitely trend-making trajectory.
So, the newest and truly “luxe” item that caught my eye was the Fruits and Passion Cucina Hand Soap. I knew immediately that this was for me. I am a foodie and a home cook – I wash my hands a LOT, and my hands pay for this fact with dryness (and I do have my favorite Avon hand cream for that), but it is nice to have a moisturizing hand soap to help prevent the dryness in the first place, right?
Well, this new luxe hand soap line from Avon is just the ticket. It is a gentle, (also biodegradable), natural ingredient, plant-derived formula, which includes olive oil and glycerin, both of which are greatly touted for being super moisturizing.
There are 3 formulations to choose from: Grapefruit and Rhubarb (pink soap) – that’s the one I chose to try – it smells sooooo good. I definitely get the grapefruit notes. Not over-powering, just really, really nice, which is another intentional factor of this luxury hand soap, it is exquisitely scented. There is Sea Salt and Amalfi Lemon (white soap), and then also the Coriander and Olive Oil (green soap).
I love the packaging of this soap as well. Cucina means kitchen in Italian, and these bottles and the ingredients definitely lend to an Italian kitchen feel. So in essence, these cuties look fabulous, feel fabulous on your hands, and smell fabulous.
As you saw from my first picture posted, these hand soaps arrive in a nice white box that says Avon. I think these hand soaps would actually make wonderful gift ideas. I was thinking like a thoughtful gift for your Mom, your Sister, a co-worker, or a teacher, or anyone really. Your bestie would probably love receiving a luxe hand soap, I know I would! Ohhh — How about your cheffy guy friends, and don’t forget to treat yourself as well. These look so pretty in the kitchen.
I’m hoping to post more this week than the last several weeks. I’ve been a bit distracted with the holidays and my birthday – Yay! Very fun distractions, but my brain has been on wanting to get back over here and share all this fun stuffs with all of you.
I celebrated my 55th birthday on January 14th – oh hey! It definitely feels like a marker birthday. It seems like I was just celebrating my 50th, and that was quite a lot to take in, and now I am over 50, and actually really enjoying this stage of my life, being an empty-nester and just following my passions and joys in life. Here’s a pic of my fun little birthday cake:
Man Alive! I’m 55! Yay! Haha! I couldn’t resist a bit of comedy for this. My sweet hubby surprised me with some gorgeous tulips and an all day shopping spree day together and also dinner out. I told you I was enjoying this stage of my life!
But anyway — I’m back here for ya, and ready to rock it big time and keep you in the know on all things Avon fab.
And speaking of Avon fab, be sure to use the code GODDESS when checking out to receive a free sample of Avon’s new Green Goddess Facial Oil. This is good through the end of Campaign 4, so you still have time to get your sample.
And remember also that I am paying for your shipping when you place an order of $60.00 or more. My sincere thank you for your patronage.
Okay gang, I’ll be back very soon with more goodness to share. You’ll not have time to miss me this go around!
Hey everyone! I don’t know about you guys, but for me it’s not the Holidays or Christmas time till delicious and warming candles are burning. And, I have a candle that takes the cake – and smells like cake – well, even more delicious and beautiful than cake… Avon’s Pass The Rum Cake Candle.
It’s a limited edition Holiday candle with the very scrumptious aroma blend of: • Butter cake • Gold rum • Whipped caramel
I can tell you that after this photo shoot with the candle in my Avon studio, I brought the candle into our living room to set it out on the bar. Within minutes my husband was asking me if I was burning the new candle. I told him no, I hadn’t re-lit it. The candle’s aroma was already in the room, without it being lit. I catch whiffs of it as I walk by, it is so delicious and very aromatic. I have put its lid back on though to keep all the aroma inside till I am ready to burn it again. Which is another fabulous feature about the Avon candles. Not only do they arrive in a very nice box, they are 3-wick candles and come with a nice metal lid. These are the best candles, and you will not believe the price. Right now they are on special – 2 for $25.00. That is awesome! And right now you can use the Code: AVONCYBER to receive Free Shipping on all orders $20+. I would definitely recommend getting 2 of these. When they’re gone, they’re gone.
This Campaign’s theme is Holiday Gifts of Glam! So fabulous! So awesome! So cool! I love glam! How about you?
This book is really thick, and chock full of A-MAZE-ING Holiday goodies – Gifts for him, her, the kids, everybody on your list, makeup, Iconic Avon collectibles, jewelry, fragrances, and on and on, so I thought I’d take a few pics from my brochure and give you a peek inside. You can view the entire C25 Brochure online – Click Here.
You can choose your favorite (or both) from Prissy (Pink Cat) or Prim (Black Cat). Each are listed at $20.00 each, on page 61.
And how about some very gorgeous and glamorous jewelry for your holidays? Check these out!
And don’t forget the men in your life –
The Men’s Jewelry is also Buy one, Get one Free. These jewelries are a very nice quality made in Stainless Steel. I actually prefer Stainless Steel to Silver. It does not tarnish and is very durable. See pages 30-31.
Now, how about something comfy?
How cute are those socks? And that Singing Snowman? Awwwww……!! That’s Simon, the Singing Snowman. His little cheeks light up red, and his belly changes color when you squeeze his hand. He’s too precious… And he’s listed at only $29.99 – page 34. And those socks — I actually purchased a pair for my Grandson. They are more than just socks – they are slipper socks with a faux-sherpa lining and have really cute pom-poms. I know I won’t get by with getting him cutesy stuff for long! These are on page 35 and are $9.99. The adult version is $12.99.
And, now, some of the new Iconic Avon cosmetic goodies this Holiday Season:
We have the Limited Edition Iconic Avon Eye Palette and the Sparkling Vanilla Champagne Collection. These are both so pretty and feminine and great gift ideas for the wonderful women in your life. The Vanilla Champagne collection smells devine! It’s a blend of warm vanilla, whipped coconut, frosted cranberries and soft iris. I really love it. I got the Hand Cream to try, and it smells so good I like to rub it on my arms like a perfume. It comes in a Body Mist (I think I need to get that!), a Body Lotion, a Hand Cream, and Shower Gel. Each sold separately on page 65.

I absolutely LOVE this time of year — How about you?
The colors, the scents, the crispness in the air. It’s all so wonderful.
And here in Avon Land, we’re happy to help you welcome in the new season with beautiful Autumn colors and scents.
To begin our Fall color journey, the new Avon Mattitude Liquid Lipsticks are the perfect way to get a bold punch of Autumn lip color.

Now let’s talk Fall Scents! Yum – Yum – Yum! This time of year we all seem to crave warming, spicy types of aromas, so let’s see what we can set you up with here.
First of all — One of my all-time favorite Avon aromas to wear – Velvet… This aroma is so warm and decadent, made from the finest ingredients in the world. Fig and Pomegranate from the Mediterranean coastline, Rose from Bulgaria, and Velvet Patchouli from Java. It is simply irresistible…
It doesn’t feel like Fall without candles, and Avon’s bringing it when it comes to seasonal aromas. My Husband and I have already been enjoying our Autumn Candle. We chose Spiced Apple Cider – It’s smells soooo good. I think I’ll be needing a replacement soon, and Fall has just begun! Haha!
And last but not least for today’s Hello Fall post, let’s talk Autumn Berry Twist. This is totally scent luxury for your body. A very delicious berry blend of Ripened Blackberries and Luscious Pomegranate blended with the aroma of Amber Spice. Each piece in this collection can be purchased separately, so you can mix and match as you please. These include the Autumn Twist Body Mist, Body Cream, Shower Gel and Hand Cream.
What a way to welcome Fall! So much to enjoy. I truly do hope that you have a wonderful, wonderful Fall this year filled with beautiful colors and scents, and that this blog post has lifted your spirits and has you ready for the season.
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!
Hello everybody! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
I am super excited about the soon to be arrival of Autumn and the arrival of Autumn scented goodies – especially candles. They give you an overall atmosphere of the season, and the aromas of the Fall season are always so warm and inviting.
My husband and I looked through all the delicious candle choices that Avon is offering this season, and we had a hard time deciding which one to choose for our home (they’re all so enticing), but finally agreed on the Spiced Apple Cider Candle. There’s just something about the aroma of spices in the air this time of year that is so heart-warming and nostalgic.
We are both very happy with our choice. It smells really really good. AND — you know me and my candle-making sniffer – I detect the hint of creme brulee in the mix, along with the cinnamon and spice. (UPDATE: After burning for a longer period of time (after photographing), there is definitely a creme brulee yumminess in this candle. You know, like a creamy caramel aroma amid warming subtle spices – it’s just very delicious and comfy.) This is perfect for us, as we both love vanillas/brulee types of aromas too – so yay! Bonus!
The candle arrived nicely boxed and has a metal lid with the word Avon stamped onto it.
Avon candles always make great gift ideas. They are really nice and they are 3-wick candles that have a great burn time. These 11 oz sized jar candles have a 30 hour burn time.
So nice! Makes me feel all warm and cozy inside.
You can click here to see all the Autumn Candle Scent choices. And here is the link to the Spiced Apple Cider Candle. There are 5 Autumn/Fall scent blends to choose from: Maple Pumpkin Pancakes (We almost went with this one, and this aroma is also available in a cute ceramic pumpkin as well), Spiced Apple Cider – yay!, Creamy Vanilla Frosting, Fall for Berries, and Autumn Stroll. The 11 oz jar candles are listed at $12.99 each (regular price $19.99), and the ceramic pumpkin candle is listed at $14.99 (regular price $24.99).
I hope you pick your favorite for your home. Let me know which one you get! I’m always very interested in your choices too.
OH — I have some good news for you today as well. Avon is going to be offering Free Shipping tomorrow ( 8/27 only) on orders $25.00+. Use Code: FABULOUS at checkout.

UPDATE: You do receive a FREE sample of Live Out Loud with ANY Purchase made in C19 and C20!! HOORAY!! That’s so fabulous! Thank you Avon! ❤

Okay gang — I’m signing out for now. I’ll be back soon with more Avon fabulousness. Till then, I hope YOU stay fabulous!
It’s so exciting with Fall being right around the corner – Yay! It’s definitely one of my favorite times of year. I love smells, the crispness in the air – it’s just all kind of magical…
And speaking of smells in the air… I’m here to give you an inside peek preview at what delicious and delightful Autumn scents are arriving just next campaign for you!
Let’s begin with candles — glorious candles! If you’ve followed me for a bit you’ll know that I am a huge candle lover as well as an ex artistic candle maker. I loved making unique aroma blends. That was one of my most sought after designs for people – to have me make a unique aroma blend for them. So, I do enjoy a gorgeous scent blend, that is for sure.
And I will tell you that I have been very impressed with the Avon candles that I have tried thus far, and certainly look forward to trying these very tempting Autumn themed candles.
Here is a quote from Kate Berger, Avon Fragrance Brand Manager, on Avon’s approach to candles:
We’ve taken a whole new approach to candles! By working directly with world-renowned perfumers and using superior raw materials, we’ve increased the overall quality of the fragrance oil going into each candle.
I can tell you as a candle maker, the raw materials utilized make all the difference in the world. If you begin with inferior wax or fragrance oils, then you cannot achieve an awesome product, but with superior materials – you achieve a superior product. Makes perfect and easy sense – or scents!
And let’s get on with the scents, shall we? We know they’re going to smell fabulous, it’s just going to be tough to choose…
Creamy Vanilla Frosting Candle – Ohhhh…. they know my weaknesses! Haha! I’m a vanilla fiend! How about you? And this one has notes of vanilla frosting, sweet cupcake and creamy caramel. Get OUT!
Autumn Stroll Candle – This one’s description says – Breathe in the cool Autumn air with notes of crisp apple, red maple leaf and honeyed acorn. Sounds wonderful!
Fall for Berries Candle – Like a long walk in the woods, explore notes of cranberry, pink currant and crushed cassis. Berry is always a very pleasant aroma this time of year.
Spiced Apple Cider Candle – Now this screams Fall, don’t you think? It says, Welcome Fall with notes of apple cider, cinnamon and star anise. The perfect Fall scent combo!
Maple Pumpkin Pancakes Candle – This one has me intrigued for sure – It says, Let’s go pumpkin picking! Start your day with notes of golden pumpkin, buttermilk and maple syrup. That’s so unique and sounds really yummy. This aroma is available both in a jar as a 3 wick candle and also in a cute little ceramic pumpkin. You’ll get more burn time with the jar, but the ceramic pumpkin is just too cute for your Autumn decor.
Now, how about some fragrance for you to wear?
This smells really really good! How do I know? See that pink circle area? That’s a rub and smell patch! Yes, I’ve been taking pictures of my What’s New Book (preview book for Representatives) and giving you an inside view. This particular Campaign 19 preview book was just so exciting to me with all the Autumn previews that I had to share.
This collection consists of a Body Mist, Body Cream, Shower Gel, and Hand Cream, all priced separately. This is a limited edition collection. Here is the scent description for you: Tangy sweetness with ripened blackberries, luscious pomegranate, and a warm twist of amber spice. And I do concur that it is a very delicious berry aroma with a nice back note of the warm spice.
The Campaign 19 book will also have a scented page for you to try, so be sure to let Avon know that you’d like to receive a book when you place your Campaign 18 order – they will ask you during checkout. Bath time is going to be so luxurious, and you’re going to smell so pretty!
And, another fun fragrance collection for you!
This is Avon’s Stories Collection. It’s a collection of stories about scent to express all the beautiful sides of you – Isn’t that so fun and awesome!
There are 4 Scent Stories –
Skip a Beat Eau de Toilette – This is a Fresh fragrance with joyful notes of sparkling lemon blossom and fresh water lily.
Work Your Magic Eau de Toilette – Warm fragrance blended with hypnotic notes of lotus blossom and golden honey.
Something Amazing Eaude Toilette – Fruity fragrance with confident notes of juicy pomelo and vibrant solar florals.
Cloud Nine Eau de Toilette – Floral fragrance with blissful notes of blushing peony and creamy whipped vanilla.
So something for every story about you – a Fresh fragrance, a Warm fragrance, a Fruity fragrance and a Floral fragrance.
I do have Scratch and Sniff sample stamps of these. Let me know if you’d like to give any/all a try. If you’re a Campaign 18 customer, I’ll be happy to mail these samples for you to try – free!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Autumn Aroma preview. Campaign 19 will begin Wednesday, August 21st, so mark your calendars! That’s when all of this fabulousness will be available. The Scent Stories are actually available now, priced at $9.99 each, original price is $17.00 each. But keep an eye out for the candles and Autumn Berry Twist collections.
Have fun shopping Campaign 18 and all it’s specials till August 20th – Be sure to click to receive your free Campaign 19 brochure upon checkout and also once you place your order, send me an email (email@example.com) if you’d like me to send you some Scent Stories Scratch and Sniff samples. Yay!
Well….. I had promised to blog about the new Scents of Summer Candles, but it looks like I was a little late on that. There are still 2 of the Scents of Summer Candles left, but the rest have already sold out, so I thought I’d show you these really cool Zen Candles that are available and on special right now, 2 for $25.00 – Yay!
The Find Your Zen Candles are a home fragrance collection enhanced with essential oils to promote the union of mind, body and soul.
