Let’s Celebrate Christmas in July!

Are you ready? I know I am!

My Husband and I have been observing a Christmas in July ritual for quite a few years now. We usually watch our favorite Christmas movies together throughout July to lift our spirits during a hot Texas Summer.

This year, we decided to take it one step further. We’re decorating! I got the idea from a lady on IG who was putting up her Christmas tree in June to help cheer things up. We can all certainly use an extra boost of cheer this year, so who’s in?

When I was contemplating our Christmas in July this year, I decided that I’d like to help spread the cheer, and remembered seeing that Avon still had quite a few of their Christmas goodies up and on sale in the Good Buys Category. Can you believe it? They still have Christmas decorations like a Lighted Gingerbread Man, Star and Snowflake lights, special holiday makeup kits/sets, candles, and more at a discounted price. Yay! And I have pictures from my holiday posts of some of the available product, so let’s go!

First up, I found out that there are 2 of the holiday themed candles left. The Pass the Rum Cake Candle and the Mocha Merrymint Candle. I believe this is the very last chance and last Campaign in which we’ll be able to find them since they are no longer listed on my Avon website, but not to worry, I know a way that you can still get one during c.15 (till July 7th).

Pass The Rum Cake Candle, Order by Product Number

Make a Statement without Saying a Word

Makeup by Avon

What kind of statement do you like to make when you present yourself to the world? We are all many personalities (and sometimes many nationalities) rolled into one unique individual, and I think that is so wonderful.

I enjoy a dramatic look, especially with my eye makeup. I always have. I suppose it’s because I have very dark eyes. But I do love my eyeliner.

It’s been a little while since I put on a full face of makeup, and it felt really good! I’ve not been anywhere in a while to present any type of statement about me, but with the arrival of my new Shubra Statement Necklace from Jarlia by Jolina in London (an anniversary present), it gave me a good excuse to get dressed up for a photo shoot.

Shubra Statement Necklace from Jarlia by Jolina

Jolina designs gorgeous African Egyptian jewelries and when I saw this necklace I immediately fell in love. I had been looking for something special to celebrate recently learning of my African ancestry, and this was definitely it for me. It is so gorgeous (dramatic, as I love), and does make a beautiful statement about me.

I had a lot of fun getting all my Avon makeup out again and getting dolled up. I use Avon exclusively for all my skincare and makeup, and I really love it. I am a youthful 55, and I greatly appreciate that Avon helps keep my skin looking great every day, no matter if I am wearing full makeup or going au naturale.

Here is a list of Avon products used for this shoot:

Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser – You have to begin with the very best, and this is the best facial cleanser I’ve ever used. It is rich and moisturizing.

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream – I love this moisturizer. It is made from a 200 year old recipe and includes natural ingredients such as Sandalwood and Avocado. You’ve gotta try it.

Avon True Color Flawless Cream-to-Powder Foundation – I love using this with the little applicator sponge that comes with it. It is not heavy and is long wearing.

Avon True Color Flawless Mattifying Pressed Powder in Translucent

Magix Dust Finishing Powder – I LOVE this stuff! It’s brand new. You use a large powder brush and sweep this all over your face for a natural glow. It’s made with mineral powder like pearls and rubies. I received a compliment the other day that my skin looked glowing. I had used this!

Oh What Fun Mega Makeup Palette – Can you believe this is still available? This is the really cool makeup palette from Christmas time. I used a pretty pink blush from this collection as well as a shimmery light pink and gray eyeshadow. This is on final sale for $25.00. It’s full of all kinds of eyeshadow colors, blushes, lip balms, and a couple of highlighters. It also has makeup brushes. You really should snag one while it’s still there. This is amazing.

Oh What Fun Mega Palette
Oh What Fun Mega Makeup Palette

Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad – In Steel Blues. I used the dark Navy eyeshadow as a liner under my lashes. These Quads are on sale for $5.59 each palette.

Mono Pop Eyeshadow Palette – Corals, for a brush of glitteriness on my lids. These palettes will be available soon. Be sure to get on the Wait List.

Ultra Luxe Liner – in Black. Right now you can get the liner plus a sharpener duo for $5.59.

Love At First Lash Mascara – Black. This is my most favorite mascara ever. It goes on so good and is very dramatic. My lashes really show. It washes off easily too. On sale!

Avon True Color Glimmersticks Lip Liner – Pomegranate. This is on Final Sale for $3.99 each.

Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick – Dragonfruit Blush. These are also on Final Sale – $5.99 each.

And there you have it!

I hope you enjoy making your own personal statement about you – who you are, and how you like the world to see you. And I hope that Avon can help you make your own personal statement with all the gorgeous makeup offerings that they have available. There are a lot of new makeup items coming on the scene as well that I’ll be trying out and sharing with you, so I hope you’ll follow here and stay tuned. I appreciate your friendship and you being on this journey with me.

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

Magix Dust 100% Pure Mineral Finishing Powder from Avon

Magix Dust Finishing Powder

Hey everyone! How are you doing? Ready for something amazing?

How’d you like a little makeup magic (or Magix) in your life? I’m talking Magix Dust Finishing Powder magic. This stuff is really really cool. Magix Dust is Avon’s newest addition to their Magix line, and I am loving it!

Magix Dust

Get this — Magix Dust is made from a 100% pure mineral powder blend of micro-milled rose quartz, rubies, tourmaline and pearls. And that’s just what it looks like on — Pearlesque — It is so pretty. It is subtle, but noticeable. And definitely not overdone. I do not feel like I look like a glitter queen, but rather, radiant and glowy. Magix Dust sets makeup, diffuses light, visibly blurs pores, controls shine (zero flashback when taking pics), and blends effortlessly.

The Magix Dust formula also contains antioxidant green tea extract to enhance and smooth skin. It is talc, oil, and paraben-free. It is very light and gorgeous.

I paired it with my Avon Blushing Beauty Powder Blush that I showed you in my Mother’s Day post.

Magix Dust Mineral Powder

The Blushing Beauty Powder is so wonderful. It also has a nice sheen and is so lovely to apply with the little powder puff. The little powder puff is soft and actually quite easy to use as a blush applicator. No stiff color line, just a delightful way to color my cheek area. It makes my skin look really pretty, as the duo brings an appreciated hint of youthfulness. This is great for any age group in my opinion.

Look Radiant and Beautiful

Unfortunately, I must tell you that the Blushing Beauty Powder Blush is no longer available. One of my customers was very lucky to order hers on back-order (you can back-order from 1 campaign back) last evening just in time before the new Campaign rolled over. Be sure to sign up to follow this blog so that you can be informed of new and limited edition products that Avon releases for special occasions and holidays. I will be sure to let you know if I spy Blushing Beauty in the Good Buys makeup sale specials. Avon posts some seasonal items there that have not yet sold out, but are on special final sale offer. You will definitely want to check out this category for great mark-down prices. I just went by there and saw some amazing products and deals. Some are from the Christmas limited edition specials. But back to the subject at hand.

The good news is that you can snag yourself some Magix Dust, and it is on special right now for $12.99, regular price is $17.00, so a great deal.

When you receive your Magix Dust you will find a clear plastic covering over the little sifter holes. Peel that off, and you can also open and close the openings with the raised areas on the side of the sifter. When the sifter was open, I tapped on the side of the container to bring the powder to the surface.

100% Pure Mineral Powder

Tap in your Avon Pro Powder Brush, and apply. The Pro Powder Brush is also on special right now for $10.49, regular price $16.00.

Avon’s Pro Powder Brush

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post. I have more Avon goodness to share with you coming up very soon. You’ll definitely want to stay tuned for all the new product releases coming up. It’s all very exciting!

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

Pamper Yourself with Prettiness

Pink Magnolia Bubble Bath

Happy Easter weekend everyone! Hope you have some kind of fun plans, and I especially hope that you are finding ways to lift your spirits.

To help in this regard, I thought I’d post some pretty stuff for you to enjoy, and to pamper your senses with prettiness of all kinds.

And for ultimate pampering, who doesn’t love a scent and bubble filled bath? Woo Hoo! The new Senses Pink Magnolia Bubble Bath 24 oz bottle is listed at just $7.00. A totally affordable indulgence…

How about a gorgeous candle to light while you’re enjoying that relaxing bath?

New Water Lily Candle from Avon

Enjoy 30 hours burn time surrounded with notes of Water Lily and Blue Hydrangea. The new Spring candles are on special 2 for $25.00.

Soft skin is also a nice luxury –

Vita Moist Hand Cream

These little hand creams are listed for $1.49. So cute!

Another great way to lift your spirits is to wrap yourself in very pretty aroma.

Avon Flourish Peony Rose Perfume

The new Peony Rose perfume is so beautiful. You’ve probably already read my review of this fragrance, but it is worth reposting! And there is also the Honey Blossom perfume with the aroma blend of Sparkly Apple Blossom and Honeysuckle Nectar. Two gorgeous floral blends for you to enjoy.

Now, how about something to pretty you up? I know for me I miss getting dolled up to go out on the town with my honey, but I have a feeling it will not be much longer now till we’re able to mingle at least a bit more than now. Gotta stay positive!

So — Here are some pretty makeup, lipstick, and nail polish goodies for you to get yourself ready to fly the coop (so to speak) and look (and feel) like a million $$

Petal Power Lipstick and Pretty Polished Gel Nail Enamel
Nesting Beauty Color Palette

Such gorgeous colors and I’m really loving this new packaging for Spring. That alone helps pamper us with pretty.

I truly hope you and your family enjoy your Easter weekend. I’m planning a video chat with my kiddos. I know I’ll get to hug them in person very soon. I know you will get to hug all your family very soon too.

Much love,

Slaying it from Home, Comfy Slipper Edition

Comfy Slippers

How are you doing?!! I hope you’re finding comforts and joys and keeping yourself busy and uplifted through all this.

I wanted to share something comfy with you today. Something comfy (and fashionable) for your feet!

I was needing some new slippers (they’re all the rage at work now you know..), and I remembered that Avon had some really cute ones that came out at Christmas-time, so I thought I’d see if perhaps they still had some available, and yes, indeed, they do!

I just ordered myself a pair of the Slay Smoking Slippers. They are too cool and listed for Final Sale on my Avon website at $14.99. They are made with Black Velvet, soft memory foam on the inside and no-skid soles on the bottom. This is a get’em while you can kind of find, so I hope you snag a pair for yourself.

Those cute fuzzy Hot Pink slippers are also still available. These are listed for Final Sale at $10.99. They are awesome with the open toe.

Glitter Shimmer Slippers

How about some Glitter Shimmer Slippers to lift your spirits? These are also Final Sale items at $10.99. Yay!

There are also Festive Bow Ballet Slippers, and Lugg Fair Isle Slippers for those of you still experiencing cool temps.

I hope you’re able to snag yourself some of those cozy slippers before they’re gone, so you can do your work from home in comfort and style.

Slaying it from home in comfort and style

Till next time, stay fabulous with a slaying attitude, and safe! Much love,

Flourish with Avon’s newest Perfume Release, Peony Rose, Plus new Mother’s Day Gifts!

It’s Your Time to Bloom

Hello! And happy April everyone!

You all most likely know by now that Avon is there for you with personal care items that you can shop for online and have delivered direct. So with that, I thought I’d go in a more fun direction with you today. Even though we may be in temporary lock-down, that doesn’t mean that we cannot still enjoy goodies that brighten our days and gives us hope for tomorrow’s celebrations and get-togethers.

With it looking like Easter may be in the tank this year (hoping not), I am choosing to look ahead to May and Mother’s Day. And as I wrote to you the other day, my Anniversary is coming up in May, so yeah, May is where my focus is on at the moment for planning to go out and celebrate life and family. That is unless something else has changed since I began this post. Everything changes so quickly these days it’s hard to keep up sometimes. But anyway… That was a long round-about to get to the new stuff that was just released by Avon…

So without further ado – Introducing Avon’s newest fragrance, Avon Flourish Peony Rose!

Avon Flourish Peony Rose

The essence of lush, glistening blooms in the early morning light, this fresh composition of watery florals shines with notes of dewy peony petals, pink currant and sheer musk.

This fragrance smells soooo good. You of course get the floral at first whiff, then there is a freshness, and an undertone of slight sweetness. It’s really beautiful. It’s not too heavy on the rose notes, and not too much for my sensitive nose. It does not smell “old-fashiony” in the least bit – it’s rather bright and fresh I would say. I will definitely wear this. No weird after-notes of any kind. I’m typing this review as I am trying it on and experiencing the first notes right from the bottle, then first applied to my skin, and then the transformation of the fragrance notes as it sits upon my skin. It just seems to get prettier, and a bit softer. And you know – I do get the water notes. That’s the fresh smell I was picking up. Avon’s description says “glistening blooms in the early morning light” and “watery florals” “dewy peony” – Yes – definitely! I get the fresh water notes for sure! And the pink currant must be the sweetness in the background that I’m picking up. It’s so cool – Their description is right on, and I am experiencing every note that they describe. They do mention sheer musk, so that must be the note that ties it all together beautifully into one cohesive and enjoyable aroma. Yay! A new favorite fragrance and perfume!

I hope you’ll give this one a try. It’s perfect for Spring and Summer. Here’s a link directly to the Flourish Page on my Avon website. You can meet the perfumer and read his note about this new fragrance. Peony Rose is listed at $35.00 a bottle, but when shopping with me as your Representative, it is listed on my site at $20.00. So awesome!

Okay — So I told you that there are new Mother’s Day gifts that launched with this new Campaign 9, right? Well, one product in particular caught my eye, so I made sure to order one to show you.

This is called Blushing Beauty Powder Blush. Look how cute this is!

Blushing Beauty Powder Blush

It’s blush that comes in a little cardboard type container and it has its own little powder puff!

This is so retro you do not even know!

I had a similar little container of powder. It wasn’t mine though. It had belonged to my Great Grandmother. It was larger than this one, very similar, but it was face powder. It had been given to her by my Great Uncle and he had handwritten a note to her from him on the little container. This reminded me of that as soon as I saw it.

New Blushing Beauty Powder Blush

It’s so cute – it fits in the palm of your hand.

I bet your Mom would get a kick out of one of these too. She may remember her Grandmother using beauty products similar to this as well. Avon is so cool to make these memorable products that bring back great memories that warms our hearts – especially now – it means so much.

Blushing Beauty Powder Blush – Perfect for Mother’s Day

There are 3 shades of blush to choose from – Ink Red, India Red (that’s the one I got), and Ginger Beige. Each one of these little cuties is just $8.00 on my Avon website.

Retro Blushing Beauty Powder Blush from Avon

I hope you enjoyed meeting these fabulous new products as much as I have. Both of these have brought me much joy – Joy to my senses and joy to my soul. I will have fun wearing each one, and I hope you will too!

Avon is back up and shipping. I just received a package from them – as you can see – it was shipped very quick and I’ve been seeing others that are so excited to be receiving their packages as well. It’s a link to the outside world that we can still enjoy, thank goodness. And Avon is being very safe. You can read about their safety guidelines as well as UPS’ on my Avon website. They answer any concerns you may have.

I am hoping that we can all get back to “normal” again very soon. I appreciate you stopping by to visit me here. Leave me a comment – I’d love to hear from you!

You can stop by and visit my Avon website and browse all the new goodies anytime you like. Check out the new brochure, shop by category (there’s a new Mother’s Day category for ease of shopping for Mom), check out the How-To videos and guides – there’s just a lot of fun stuff to help get your mind off the negative and to hopefully brighten your day. Not to mention stuff to help you look and feel pretty (awesome)! Yay! And I’m still picking up the tab for your shipping when you shop from my webstore (on all purchases of $60.00+)! Yay-Yay!

Here’s a look at some of the other new goodies just listed for Mother’s Day:
