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!

Trying on Makeup with Avon’s new Makeover Tool

Hey! Look who had some fun today!

It’s me – trying on makeup using the new Makeover Tool from Avon.

This was really cool, and really fun.

I only wore base makeup to do this so that I could see the different lipstick and eyeshadow colors on my face.

Here’s a close-up for you to see the lipstick really good.

This was all live and interactive. I thought I would need to take a pic and upload it, but it was live video, real time. Look how well the lipstick sits right on my lips. You can even see the shimmer. This was the Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick, and you can see how the real product is going to look when you wear it – gloss and glimmer and all. So awesome!

Now I’m trying on some Glimmershadow in Silver. I thought perhaps I may be too fair for the Silver to show up, but hey, I think I really like it!

Or perhaps a purple?

The Makeover Tool will tell you the name of the shade(s) you’re trying on. And see, I have no lipstick on – the pictures with me with lipstick are all virtual reality, and it looks so real. Here’s a lipstick pic with a more pink tone:

I really like the brighter reds and pinks on me. I tried on all kinds of colors. This was so fun. After seeing my pics, my husband really liked the sparkly Ruby Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick on me. I did too.

It’s really cool when you visit the Virtual Makeover Page – You can find it Here. You click on a product that you’d like to try. Then you click Try It On. You will need to give permission for it to take pics on your phone or computer.

Once you see yourself on the live video screen, you can click on the different colors you’d like to try, one at a time. Each color will appear where it’s supposed to – on your eyes or lips or face (if you’re trying foundation tones). Give it a moment to appear and then you’ll see a little camera icon – You can click on that to take your picture with that particular shade or color on. It will show you a countdown clock 3-2-1 and then take your photo. You then click to download the picture onto your phone or computer. This works from both your phone and computer cameras. I used my phone outside as you can see. The lighting was great outdoors for this.

I hope you give it a try – And if you do, I’d love to see your pics! You can use the hashtag #jfaysbeautyblog on IG. That’s where I’ll be posting mine. I may even pick my favorites to share here on my blog. I’ll be sure to tag you in a post on IG so that you will know that you’ve been posted and can come by here and see your mugshot!

Till next time, stay fabuluous!
