Avon Personal Achievement

Hey Gang!

I’m very honored and grateful to be celebrating a personal achievement with Avon. And, although reaching the level of Star Promoter is a personal achievement, I could not have reached this without you or my Avon Team, so I wanted to say a very huge THANK YOU to you all.

I truly love what I do, and I love sharing the joy.

It will soon be my 2nd Anniversary with Avon (later this month) and I have really enjoyed the journey thus far. I am also very much looking forward to many more Avon Adventures with you!

Sincerely,

Jfay

Be a Happiness Instigator

Be a Happiness Instigator!  Jfays Beauty Blog https://jfaysbeauty.blog
Spread Happiness and Joy, and Makeup!

So what is an Instigator, you ask? An Instigator is a ringleader, inciter, motivator, leader, spur, goad, troublemaker, incendiary, and mischief-maker.

I believe this world could certainly use a lot of “Happiness” Instigators. How about you?

Be the sunshine, do something kind, smile, only speak of good and happy things, and laugh a lot!

Smiles and happiness are just as contagious as complaining and frowning, so let’s get the happiness cycle going again!

One of the first things I’ve learned to do is to create happiness in my own life so that I am able to then share the goodness.

Do things that make you happy, no matter how small or trivial they may seem. They are very important things if they bring you happiness.

I know for me, working my beauty business makes me very happy. Makeup to me is fun. It brightens my look and my life, and I love sharing that happiness with you.

I wanted to make a mention and extend a big thank-you to my Insta friend GRATITUDE GIFTED for inspiring the new Happiness Instigator tag-line. I thought of that as I was commenting on one of their posts regarding the Law of Reciprocity. If you’re on Instagram, it is a great account to follow. They always have uplifting posts.

Okay gang, I hope this simple message inspires you to shine your light and instigate happiness. Feel free to share the Happiness Instigator pic I created above. It would be fun to have Happiness Instigator pins made up, hey? I may have to check into that!

Till next time, you know the drill by now, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!

Beauty Therapy: Perk-Me-Up Makeup Makeover

Ever had one of those days – or weeks? You can see that I certainly have. I am now on the road to recovery, thank goodness, but it’s been a very trying time for your ol’ Jfay here. I caught some type of bug on a recent road trip and it really took it’s toll on me. But in my always fighting fashion, as soon as I was feeling a bit better, and took a look at myself, I was like, “You need to pull yourself together, girlfriend!”. No doubt….

And you know what? It made me feel better. There’s just something about pulling it together and getting made up that changes my whole demeanor. How about you? No matter the situation – getting over an illness, inclement weather days, lock-downs, just whatever. When I’m feeling low, and looking even lower, it’s always great to take some time to pep myself up.

Once I made up my mind that I was ready to pull myself together, I first began with my skin. I of course was able to still wash and moisturize (barely..), but I used my Isa Knox Polisher and Collagen Booster Serum Ampules the night before to help my skin look better. I love this stuff so much. You’ll have to check out my blog post about this dynamic duo.

So, now time to get all prettied up! After washing my face, I then moisturized with my favorite moisturizer Physiogel Moisture Therapy, and knew that my skin was going to need some help in the brightness department, so I also applied VDL Lumilayer Primer Fresh for a bit of luster and more healthy radiance.

Next to foundation:

As you can see, I love my Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. I first apply it with a damp sponge for full coverage, and then I go back over it with the dry sponge that comes with the compact to set and finish. It works just like a foundation (damp) and a setting powder (dry). There is great coverage without looking cakey or overly made up. There, already looking better. I use the C110 Cheesecake shade.

Okay! Let’s get something going on with those eyes.

Tattoo Station Brow Pencil and Ultra Luxury Eye Liner

For my brows I used the Tattoo Station Brow Pencil in Dark Gray, and the Ultra Luxury Eye Liner in Black. That’s already starting to bring my features back to life now. I knew I was still in there somewhere!

Now let’s really add some color back to my face, beginning with some eyeshadow. I have to have eyeshadow.

Looks like I jumped ahead a step and put on some blusher first. I’ll show you that in just a minute.

But for my eyes, I chose the Avon Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Qaud in Purple Haze. There are 10 Quads to chose from, and they’re curated in shades that go very well together for easy application. I thought a pop of purple would go well with my shirt, and I like wearing a dark gray right around my eye to help accentuate my brown eyes.

Let’s put some color on those lips!

I chose to wear Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit Blush which is very very pretty, but a little bright for the pink in my shirt, so I topped that with Avon True Color Lipstick in Frostiest Mauve. Perfect! The True Color Lipsticks are on Final Sale it looks like. So if you’d like to get some Frostiest Mauve for yourself, better get it while it’s still available. Avon is adding a lot of new lipstick formulas, which is very exciting, but I’ll miss some of my favorites.

Okay, for my blusher and mascara.

fmg True Love Multi Palette and Love at First Lash Mascara

I just blogged about these two products actually. The (for Valentine’s Day) fmg True Love Multi Palette, and Love at First Lash Mascara.

The True Love Multi Palette is so cute and filled with 4 shimmery colors that can be used on both your cheeks and eyes. I wanted to try it out on my cheeks. I just kind of swirled the colors together and applied to my cheeks, forehead, and around my lower chin area. I really like the way it made my skin look more luminous, and certainly like I had healthy color back in my face. I’m really pleased with it, and glad I got myself this palette. I do not know how long it will be around since it was just released with the Valentine’s goodies, so if you’re interested you may want to snag one now while you can.

And my MOST favorite mascara – Love at First Lash. I couldn’t do without this. It really makes my lashes stand out with little effort on my part. I do not like to curl my lashes, and the Love at First Lash Mascara doesn’t seem to care. It does it’s job and makes my lashes stand out with just one coat. Two coats are really popping.

And here I am — feeling (and hopefully looking) like myself again.

I love my Avon beauty products. Jfay

It truly is amazing – the power of skincare and makeup.

Everything I use now for my skincare and makeup is Avon. I am not only a Representative, but a very devoted customer. Since going in all Avon, I really feel that it has been very transformative to me, for both my skin and my looks.

I love the ease at which I can use my Avon cosmetics and makeup. I like to look great, but not have to take 10 hours to get ready with so many layers, steps, and such. Know what I mean? Simple, easy, and very fine products.

Okay gang, I’m off for now. Hoping to feel better and better every day now. And this little skincare and makeup boost was just what I needed to help me go further in that direction.

I hope you take time to fix yourself up and feel fabulous too, no matter what the situation. It’s great therapy! Hey, there ya go – Beauty Therapy!

Share Your Beautiful Light

Hello friends! How are you doing?

I truly hope you are keeping your chin up and your spirits high.

You know, during times like these (well, I do not really recall any other times during my lifetime like these…), high spirits and good vibes are very important. It makes a huge difference in everything, and it all begins with what you’re letting in. When you spend time listening to and taking in only bad news, how do you feel? Down, depressed, angry? If you’re feeling that way, you are spreading that feeling to others as well, and it keeps going in a cycle.

BUT — if you choose to tune out negativity, only let in positivity, goodness, kindness, fun, happiness, uplifting tales, etc., your spirits will begin to rise. You’ll feel happier, perhaps even joyous – hooray!! Then, what do you think you’re sharing with others? Joy! Happiness! Beauty!! Then they will feel that joy and perhaps continue to share that feeling.

Let’s get a cycle of happiness going again, that’s what I say! Drive out the darkness. It cannot get to you if you do not let it in. And believe me, I know that can be a difficult task right now, but I have made myself a promise to not dwell in the darkness. I stay informed plenty, but I am trying to learn to tune out what brings me down, and focus on what lifts me up.

Give it a try for yourself. See what you think. How can you spread more joy, beauty, and light? I believe it takes just a spark from each of us to defeat the darkness and dark energy that seems to be ablaze right now. So what do you say? Care to shine your beautiful light?

I hope you can find fun things and projects to keep your mind focused on what makes you happy. I’ve come to realize that caring about what’s going on doesn’t mean that I have to indulge completely in the bad “feelings” of what’s going on. I can pray for people or for a situation, do physically what I can to help, and put the rest in God’s very capable hands. I feel that I can be much more help when my spirits are in the right place. I am then more capable of love and light, and then sharing love and light.

I hope your spirits are high and that you are feeling wonderful inside, and shining your beautiful light!

Feel free to share in the comments what you’ve been doing to keep your spirits up. Would love to hear!

Much love, joy, and light,

Jfay

Pretty Taco Salad with Pinto Beans and Guacamole

Hey everybody! How’s everything with you today? I hope you’re enjoying gorgeous weather like we are here in Southeast Texas.

Beautiful weather always makes me think about beautiful salads. How about you? I love coming up with all kinds of different salads. They’re really fun, and there are many different types. And not surprisingly, a favorite type around here is Taco Salad. Taco Salad’s are delicious, and very versatile. There are so many variation possibilities that they’re never boring to make (or eat). I can go with whatever I have on hand, or sometimes they are thoughtfully planned.

This particular Taco Salad that I made last week was a very quick and simple meal planned for the holiday week. When there is a lot going on, like during the holidays, I like to make sure that we’re still eating healthy, so it’s nice to have quick and easy (and healthy) options.

So, for this salad, I knew that I wanted to use pinto beans. I sometimes go with a black beans, those are a great choice as well, but this time I wanted to go with pintos, and also decided on using red onions for their sharpness. Green onions are also very good, as are white onions. So many fabulous choices! Now, for the pinto beans, I went with canned ones…. I know…. But this was for a holiday week night quick and easy meal, right? First, I drained the beans. You can rinse them also. I added water and my own seasonings to give them the flavor I’d like. I added garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and I have a seasoning combo blend of cilantro, garlic and lime. That was it! You could add chili powder to make them more of a chili bean flavor.

I made a small batch of fresh guacamole – See, I did make something from scratch! I used 1 avocado for me and Hubby to share. I also used 1 Campari tomato. I like to squeeze the juice from the tomato into the diced avocado and then dice the tomato itself and add that in as well. I sometimes add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, and I sometimes add lime juice. It just depends on the flavor profile I am wanting. I also added the cilantro, garlic, and lime seasoning mix to this. You would not believe the flavor in this mixture. It’s fabulous and bright! It tastes like I added fresh cilantro, so that is a great time-saver right there. And voila’, a quick and easy guacamole to top my salad. Yay!

And of course we had to have some tomato. I used a medium vine ripe tomato, cut it in half and then sliced.

For the lettuce I used Romaine. I sometimes do a Romaine/Iceburg mix, so just whatever you prefer.

So, we’re ready to assemble our salads — But I forgot to mention that I added chicken fajita meat to my Husband’s salad. He wanted meat. No problem. I got some frozen chicken fajita strips (check the label for best ingredients), heated those up – fast and easy dinner night, remember? Okay, now we’re ready to assemble!

First comes the lettuce. I just eyeball the amount for each plate. I always give Hubby a bit more than me. πŸ™‚ I sprinkled shredded sharp cheddar cheese on top of the lettuce, then dropped pinto beans here and there around the salad. I cooked the pintos down while I was preparing the rest of the ingredients. I like for them to thicken up. I also let them cool just a bit before adding to the salad so all the greens will not be wilted.

Next, the sliced purple onions. These look really pretty and add a great pop of color as well as great flavor. I added the chicken fajita strips to Hubby’s (cooled a bit as well). I then placed the tomato slices around the salads. Looking great!

I always like to arrange tortilla chips (unsalted) all around the outside of a Taco Salad for a really nice presentation, so that’s what I did. I then added half the guacamole atop each salad, and popped a tortilla chip in the guacamole for a final touch.

I served each of our salads with a small bowl of our favorite salsa. We could then drizzle salsa on our salads and also dip our chips.

And there you have it! A very pretty (and easy) Taco Salad! Ta-da!

I am actually planning another salad for our dinner tonight. A BLT, blue cheese, with avocado, maybe a boiled egg? I’ll let you know how this one goes!

Here is an ingredient shopping list if you’d like to try my Pretty Taco Salad with Pintos and Guacamole (for 2):

Romaine Lettuce, or Iceburg and Romaine

1 Can Pinto Beans

Frozen Fajita Chicken Strips (Optional)

Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1 Small Red Onion

1 Medium Tomato

1 Compari Tomato

1 Avocado

Tortilla Chips (Salted or Unsalted)

Your Favorite Salsa

Cilantro/Lime/Garlic Seasoning Blend

Cayenne Pepper

Garlic Powder

Cheers! I hope you enjoy!

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? πŸ™‚

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!

Girlfriend, You Need to Exercise Your Face!

That’s exactly what I told myself while looking in the mirror a while back.

Hey everyone! How are you? Excited to get back to work? I know I am! I had fun over the holiday, but have been eager to get back to my fun stuff here.

But yeah, I had to have that conversation with myself. We all know that immobility leads to sagging, and that includes our faces. I know that for me, I’ve always loved exercising, but recently, with the changes going on within me due to menopause, I sometimes do not have the motivation I used to, to get myself moving. BUT, after that OMG moment looking in the mirror, I found anewed motivation. I have also been inspired by others my age to get my exercise bike back out, and get myself toned up. So yay! I hope I can also help inspire someone else out there that may need a friendly push to keep on workin’ it, even when you may not feel that into it.

So, let’s get going on exercising that gorgeous face. You know what they say, move it or lose it!

Here are a few of my favorite exercises to do daily. And as with most things that I do, I love to multi-task, so some of these will also exercise your neck and arms at the same time.

The first one I like to do, kind of like a warm-up, is very simple. You can do this exercise, and all of them really, either sitting down or standing up, and I like to sometimes do these while riding my exercise bike.

I do not have names for these exercises, so for this one I’ll call the O-E Exercise. This is for your cheeks as well.

First purse your lips into an exaggerated “O” shape:

Then change to a very wide “E” shape:

I know this looks funny! Haha! But I can really feel the muscles in my face and neck area being stretched and exercised when I do this. I do this exercise about 12 times. And with it looking so funny, it may also lift your spirits and make you laugh – or make others laugh!

The next exercise I like to do is for my neck area. It’s basically opening and closing your mouth, but while stretching your neck upwards.

Just stretch your neck upwards and pull your bottom lip up. I can really feel my neck muscles being worked with this one.

Neck Exercise

I’ve always heard that a woman’s neck shows her age, so yeah, get those neck exercises in with your facial exercises.

The great thing about these exercises is that they’re not strenuous and you can do them anytime, and practically anywhere, and they do not take a lot of time. So, no excuses Jfay!

Okay, let’s get some more physical action going – not strenuous, just more active.

Let’s stretch those arms out…

Jfay’s Beauty Blog

S t r e t c h from side to side. Slowly… Really stretch your neck while you’re doing this, from one side to the other. You will feel those side neck muscles getting worked out with this one. I’m hoping this one will help with the side jowls as well, because I can feel it pulling my muscles all the way up to my chin area. I sometimes add an extra stretch to this one for my face by opening and closing my mouth while in this position. I can really feel it in my chin area then. Kind of a side mouth stretch. This helps get the blood flowing too.

Now, I’m going to stretch up and down.

Stretch those arms up to the ceiling, and your head up as well, with your neck stretched.

Then bring it all down.

Having fun yet?

No.. don’t look up! Haha! Although, that could be another angle to stretch from. πŸ™‚ But, I basically go straight up and down like this several times. It exercises my neck and the back of my upper arms (which can always use the exercise, if you know what I mean.).

So, there you have it! Those, for right now, are my favorite easy go-to daily face, neck, and upper arm exercises. I may add more to my routine later, but I am enjoying doing these, and have been able to fit them into my schedule easily. Plus my bike riding! I’m very proud of myself for making sure to ride my bike as well, practically every day. I’ve had to miss a few days during the holiday, but that’s not too bad. I’ve been riding a mile, a mile and a half, and sometimes 2 miles a day now. Hooray!

Another thing I wanted to mention to you about keeping that gorgeous face and neck look fabulous and youthful, is to also try to make moisturizing a daily habit as well. It can be very simple and not take much time to do, especially with this new line of moisturizers I’m about to show you. Which, I did a blog post just a while back about Physiogel. I love this so much, and it is now my favorite moisturizer.

I cannot laud this nearly enough. It is so fabulous. This humble looking moisturizer is designed to repair, restore, and hydrate your skin. It is made for dry, sensitive skin, and feels so wonderful.

Here’s what Avon has to say about Physiogel:

Our Physiogel BioMimic Technology contains lipids that are similar to those found naturally in skin that help repair and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, restoring the hydration your skin needs to stay strong and visibly healthy.

I use this on my face and neck twice daily. It smooths into my skin quickly and does not leave any greasy residue, so it’s perfect under makeup as well.

Avon has a full line of this product. For your face, your body, and for facial cleansing. Here’s a link for you to read more about it, and see all the products in this line. And with our new Campaign 2 right now, you will receive a free gift of a trial size facial cream with any Physiogel purchase. I’ll be getting mine for sure! Here’s a link to the new Brochure’s Physiogel page 1. Just click the side arrow to browse the pages.

And there you have it – some of my very favorite self care tips for my face and neck area. I hope this helps get you inspired and motivated too. Always take time for you, and take good care of yourself. It’s never too late (or early) to begin a great skincare and exercise regimen.

If you give Physiogel a try, let me know how you like (I mean, love) it!

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:
β€’ fmg Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Diamond Dust, .07 fl. oz.
β€’ Avon True Color Lipstick in Candy Red, .106 oz net wt.
β€’ The Face Shop Dr.Belmeur Cica Recovery Cream, .34 fl. oz.
β€’ 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!

Celebrating Beauty Over 50!

Thank you Avon!

I love the phrase Over 50 and Fabulous! It’s such a wonderful milestone in a woman’s life I believe. To reach the age of 50 (and beyond), and feel awesome, and feel like you’re still looking pretty awesome too. We’ve raised our families and are now on a new journey. It’s pretty spectacular.

I’ve partnered with a couple of my Avon Teammates to celebrate the fact that we are over 50 and pretty darn fabulous, and to say a huge Thank You to Avon for being part of the beauty in our lives, inside and out.

I’d like to introduce you to these stunning ladies. First is one of my Avon Mentors, Keely Johnson.

Keely is a very youthful 57 yrs old and has been using Avon skin care for about 15 yrs now.

Keely says, “People always tell me that I don’t look 57. Thanks Avon!!! I use all the Avon skin care and Avon makeup. I switch it up and use different things on different days. Here are some of my favorites. I use the Rice Water Cleanser, The Face Shop Oil Anti Age Facial Serum, the Cica Peptide, the Anew Ultimate Dual Elixir, sometimes the Ultimate Day Cream, Ultimate Eye System, Anew Hyaluronic Serum, Vitamin C Serum, and Vitamin C Eye Cream. I like to use it all and switch it up, I want all the benefits of it all.”

Let’s meet beautiful Michelle Butler.

Michelle is 51 but has been told she still looks 30…. thanks to Avon!

Here are Michelle’s favorite skin care products from Avon: “I use Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser and Multi-Performance Day Cream and Night Cream. I also use Anew Ultimate Supreme Dual Elixir at night. For eyes I use Eye Lift Pro Eye System and Anew Vitamin C Brightening Eye Cream.”Β 

And look who’s next, meet Jfay, your Beauty Blog Hostess.

I am 55 and have been an Avon skin care fan since I was 12. My first Avon memory is during a church trip I took along with some older teenage girls. They were impressed that I was using a skin care regimen at my age, and that made a real impression on me since I looked up to them.

I now enjoy using some of Avon’s newest skin care items. I absolutely love the Avon x The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser and the Avon x The Face Shop The Therapy Oil Blending Cream. I also love the Green Goddess Facial Oil.

Avon’s makeup products are also wonderful for skin at every age. They have foundations, primers, color correctors, face perfectors, you name it. Here’s a link to all the facial beauty products. I use Avon makeup products exclusively, as I’m sure my 2 teammates do as well. Avon has fabulous eye makeups, lipsticks, blushes, mascaras, and more. You can look through my previous posts to find the products that I love and use, and you know I’ll be posting more about favorite makeup items in the future too, so just stick around!

I hope this post helps bring some inspiration to ladies our age, and a realization to younger generations that maintaining your looks is very possible, fun, and easy using Avon products. You’ve just met 3 (very happy to be) Avon Representatives who are here to represent, and to keep the Avon legacy going into the future.

Till next time, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!

Self Care Is Very Important Right Now

Self Care is So Important Right Now

Self care is very very important right now. Taking care of your body, mind, and spirit, and keeping yourself uplifted and feeling good is a great way to shift your focus off of what’s going on around you, and instead channel a good feeling inward to help you through. The more we can stay uplifted, the more we can uplift others, and you know the saying – “That’s a good thing!”.

Avon has set up a whole new category to help us all address this, called Self-Care Heroes.

In this special category you will find everyday essentials such as Beauty Self-Care where the focus is shifted from pampered indulgence to your everyday necessities. You will find hair care products and tools, a pedicure kit, root touch-up product, hair color, facial cleansers, moisturizers, masks, and more. I wanted to mention to you all that you may want to get on the waiting list for the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser is the bomb – I love it so much, and I am also on the wait list. This will definitely lift your spirits. It is so soft and creamy and moisturizing and smells so good. The smell reminds me of soft pink powder. It really makes me feel good when I use it. Every little thing counts right now you know.

Join the Wait List for Avon’s Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser – It is really awesome!

Next on the list of Self-Care Heroes is Body Defense Faves. In this category you will find personal care items for both indoors and outdoors. There are body and hand lotions, moisture therapy lotions for dry skin, anti-fungal foot spray, hand soaps, bug spray and more. The Moisture Therapy line is a must-have for me. This is great for my sensitive skin. It is unscented and really has a positive impact on my skin. The lotion in the little jar is my fave. Very rich and creamy.

Avon’s Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing for Your Skin

I also love and recommend the Moisture Therapy Calming Relief line of moisturizers.

Now we’re on to Home Essentials. Here you will find goodies to keep your home space clean and serene. There are the Fruits and Passions Hand Soaps (these are super awesome!), beautifully scented candles, toothpastes and tooth brushes, as well as aromatherapy oil blends.

Grapefruit and Rhubard Hand Soap

My favorite Cucina Fruits and Passion Hand Soap is the Grapefruit and Rhubard. It smells really really pretty. Not overpowering, just really nice, and it is made with olive oil, so this also helps keep your hands moisturized. I use this in my kitchen as a hand wash only – not for the dishes – it’s too pretty! It’s a little something special, just for you…

And then we have a very popular category right now, At-Home Leisurewear. You might as well be looking good while you’re wearing your at-home leisure wear, right? There are leggings, tanks, tees, sports bras, flip-flops, and more.

Pack of 4 Reversible Tanks

My Sister-In-Law ordered these tanks and she really loves them. They are reversible so you can have either a V-neck line or Scoop neck line. They come in a really pretty Raspberry Pink, a Light Blue, White, and Black. They’ll go with all your leggings and sweat pants!

And I say, while you are shopping for necessities, why not take a look at all the fabulous lipsticks and lipstick colors? This is a great time to browse and shop makeup colors. I know a new tube of bright lipstick always lifts my spirits, how about you?

I hope you find some things here that will brighten your stay-at-home lifestyle right now – and beyond. I know we are all hoping this will all be over very soon, but in the mean-time, we’ve got to be good to ourselves and treat ourselves to some new and fun things that can bring happiness into our new routines.
