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!

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!

The Avon 2020 Christmas Holiday Gift Guide is Here! Happy Campaign 23!

Shop the Avon 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!

Seasons Greetings! It’s that time again! Avon’s just released their 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!

Holly Jolly Gifties!

The other big news for Campaign 23 is the release of Avon’s new LYRD Artisan fragrances. These are described as fragrance artistry, expertly crafted by master perfumers, using unexpected combinations of the finest ingredients.

LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum

Those that know me, know that this is a subject that rings very true to my heart. Formerly a candle artist and perfumer, I know a little about fragrance blending. Getting the right combination of aromas that dance together in perfect harmony. It truly is an art, and an art that can delight your senses.

LYRD Artisan Santal Musk Eau de Parfum

I’ve had the privilege to try the Cherry Vetiver aroma, and I absolutely love it. This definitely reminds me of the types of aromas that I would blend. I am so looking forward to trying the Santal Musk Parfum. I love musk based aromas, they are in my top faves, and the Santal Musk Parfum is described as being a blend of Indian Sandalwood and magnetic White Musk. Guess what? I love sandalwood as much as I love musk, so yeah, I’ll be giving this one a try very soon.

The Cherry Vetiver Parfum is described as a blend of Sweet Cherry and smooth Haitian Vetiver. I’ve blogged about this particular aroma blend so you’ll have to check that out. But this one smells so beautiful. I love wearing it. It is not hard on the nose at all, which, if you’re wondering, is why I had to leave the world of scent-blending behind. It became sensory overload for my very sensitive sense of smell. It’s taken me a few years to be able to wear scent again, and I can only wear those that are not too overpowering. So, yes, I definitely recommend the Artisan Cherry Vetiver, and look forward to trying the Artisan Santal Musk.

Another amazing thing about the Artisan Parfums is that they are unisex aromas, so you can gift either of these to anyone this season, including yourself.

And so you know, there will be more fun Christmas goodies being added throughout the next several campaigns, including Avon’s Parisian themed Christmas items, so you’ll want to be sure to sign up to get blog post notifications to be the first to know when all the fabulousness is released.

Also, be sure to sign up on my Avon website to receive email notifications. You will receive email directly from Avon with unadvertised specials that you can take advantage of during the holiday shopping season, plus I send out special free gift opportunities to my customers and email list recipients. It’s very easy to sign up – Click Here to visit the Holiday Gift Guide – Scroll to the bottom of the page, and you’ll find the SIGN UP button. You can also sign up to receive email when you enter the Avon Monthly Sweepstakes. Yay!

Here’s a peek at the free gift offers I will be sending my email recipients during Campaign 23:

Free Gift Offer for My Avon Email Recipients C.23
Free Gift Offer for my Avon Email Recipients C.23

So go get signed up! I’d love for you to get in on the fun! The Festival Vibes A-Box pictured above is a $40.00 value gift set, so yeah, that’s a fabulous gift that you could give to yourself or save for a special Christmas gift.

I’ll give everyone a little time to get signed up before I send out the emails for the free gift offers. I usually post a head’s up here on my blog as well as on my Social Media pages when the coupon codes are on their way.

Okay gang — I shall close for now. I’m so excited for the holidays this year. I hope I can help spread some fun, and comforts and joy this season for you, your family, and your home.

Till next time, stay fabulous!
