Haiku -- A perfect Summer Scent!

Good Morning!

This is Haiku Skin Softener. At $1.99 on sale, its a great deal! This scent is one of my most popular scents I sell for Avon, and I found out why. For the summer, its light, it smells crisp and clean, not too overpowering, and I love it!!

This jar is the skin softener. Its a light lotion you can apply anywhere on your body. I put some on my arms, wrists, (not hands...its not hand cream) and my upper chest. I don't use a lot, just a dab, which goes a long way.

Avon describes this scent as Oriental Floral. They describe it as a japenese garden. I just love it! I think it smells light and crisp. It is also available in shower gel, body lotion, cologne sprays, and body powder.

If you would like to try this scent, email me with your name and address, and i will happily send you a sample. Otherwise, at $1.99 for the body powder or skin softener, its a great deal.

Have a lovely day, stay cool, dry, and don't forget to smile!!

Its almost 5 o'clock, and that means quittin' time! Before I leave for work, I just want to say that I watched More to Love on FOX last night with my boyfriend. I didn't like this show. I am happy that normal people are portrayed on reality television, but just barely. Every woman on the show was over 175 lbs. Some were pushing 275-300. Is this the normal sized woman? No. Is this healthy? No.
I didn't like this show for numerous reasons, but mainly because these women (all beautiful) were not happy with their current situations on the love front. And for this, I was sad for them.

This man is initially attracted to you for your body...not your personality, not your smile, not your eyes, not your brain, but instead because you are overweight. Do you want someone like that, really? I don't.

I'll tell you why. I want (and think I am lucky enough to have) someone who cares for me enough to worry about my health. I want someone who was intially attracted to me for my smile or that I made them laugh, or that they thought I was intelligent. I want a man to be physically attracted to me, but I want him to want me to be healthy. And, I also think the relationship is better if its not BASED on physical....but emotional or mental attraction. There is a big difference there!!

Please don't take this the wrong way. I think it takes a lot of guts for all these women, and even this guy to be on this show. I think they are all beautiful, but I feel sorry for them, because I think FOX is using them for ratings and for the public to make fun of them. I am worried that these gals who have never been on a date will be humiliated and/or depressed if they are sent home.
I don't think they deserve to be made fun of by the general public. What do you want to bet that this show will be featured on the Soup on Friday?? I am sure there will be many jokes, and I don't want to see anyone hurt.

Smooth Minerals Before and After



My test this morning was the Smooth Minerals makeup by Avon. I used the Smooth Minerals in Nude and transparent Glow.
I also applied a dab of the rose garnet Smooth Minerals Lipstick with SPF!
I'm awake and ready for my day. Big difference when I smile, huh?? It took only a few minutes to apply the loose powder makeup, but it really seemed to even out my skin tone and brighten me up a bit.

Uh...finally feeling better!!

After almost a week of not feeling myself, I finally feel better. I suffer from IBD, similar to IBS, but it is a disease, not a syndrome. Anyone else have tummy problems? It isn't easy. One minute I am fine, the next is awful and intense cramping and frantic dashes to the bathroom. But, we all have our own little glitches, don't we? Even computers get bunked up and constipated, or they get loose and contract, that's mean.

Anyway, I don't have a review for you today of beautiful avon products. If anything, today I used Avon Deodorant...Light and Lush Skin So Soft roll on deodorant. Its only 99 cents, how can you beat it?!?! It has a light citrus smell, and its not a strong smell. I personally don't like deos that smell so strong you notice it all day. I am a smelly gal, I sweat a lot, even if I am not working out or being active. This stuff does work, and it lasts a long time. A 99 cent bottle of roll on lasts me two months.

If you decide to try it and don't like it, let me know! You can return it for a full refund!

Being Beautiful on Days you Don't feel Good

Good Wednesday Morning!
This morning, I woke up feeling rather ill. Its probably the mexican food I had the other day, finally getting ready to attack! Anyways, its hard to be beautiful when you feel like the most productive thing you should do is grab a book and read in the bathroom. That's me today.
I am at work, putting in my Avon order for campaign 18. I am excited about the start of campaign 19---- smooth mineral makeup sale!! I love Avon's Smooth Minerals makeup. They have blush, eyeshadow, foundation, and smooth mineral LIPSTICK!! Its free of dyes and perfumes, but has amazing color! It goes on rather sheer, its not too cakey or thick. I love it, its perfect for summer!!

If you are interested in this new product, please visit and search for smooth minerals. This new product may not appear until Friday on the website, but its not expensive for lipstick, and I absolutely recommend it! If you order online, enter promo code:REPFLYER to get free shipping.

Now...if only my stomach would behave.

I tried ANEW Rejuvenate Gel Cleanser

I have been using Clinique's three step system for years, but since I became an Avon lady, I thought I ought to try one of Avon's cleansers.

Now, I will say, I am still using Clinique's moisturizer (for now), but I started washing my face each morning with Anew Rejuvinate 2 in 1 cleanser. So far, I love it! My face feels amazing after I wash, and I have noticed fewer breakouts. I wish I had a before and after pic so everyone could see the difference! My skin does feel radiant and fresh!
Now, I wouldn't say I have an acne problem normally, but I do seem to get a small breakout near my chin every month. My skin doesn't feel "greasy" or "oily", but not "dry" either. I don't usually use cleaner with acne medication, and this Anew cleanser isn't that way, either. My skin is the type to get a breakout if I use acne-medicated cleansers, they just seemed too strong always.
If you use this cleanser or another Anew cleanser, please let me know what you love or don't love about it.
Your Avon gal,

My first Post!

Deciding to sell Avon was easy. I had a huge order right off the bat, and all I had to do was leave my catalogs at the grocery store. I was hooked, but I really didn't know the product. This website will be a daily trials and tribulations type of log---with what I like and don't like about Avon, especially the products. I have come to realize every customer will ask you about a different product, and when you don't know or haven't tried it... they get mad!

Guess what? Avon sells TONS of stuff! Not just makeup, and I haven't tried most of it. But, I have tried numerous items, and I can't wait to tell you about them.
