New! Smooth Minerals Lip Tint

Smooth Minerals Lip Tints!! On sale for $3.49!! Slightly skinnier than a lipbalm or chapstick, but feels just as good! I have Smooth Berry, which gives a nice hint of color with the feel of chapstick. I like that the tube is skinny, so I won't get it outside of my lips.
Also comes in colors: raisin, shimmer, coral, nude, and pink. Very sheer color, looks natural, and feels good! A must try for only $3.49 at my online Avon store.

My sluggish Cures

Well, today was a long day-- I worked, showed some homes, delivered some avon, saw my sister, talked to my brother (he has my car again....but I don't have the energy to talk about its new problems), and now I will see AB and relax. Tacos tonight!!

Whenever I am feeling sluggish or not 100%, I have a few cure alls:
  • The fruit and yogurt parfait at McDonalds. Its delicious and I really think it helps me feel better.
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice. I mean, F R E S H. I go to the store, buy 2-3 oranges, and squeeze them myself and drink asap. Delicious and really fixes me.
  • Water or Vitamin water. I only drink the Revive or Essential. When Vitamin water first started selling in the health food stores (1999-ish), it was very pale in color and had more natural flavor. Essential, the orange one, looked like watered down orange juice with sediment at the bottom. My sis and I drank it like it was going out of style...or going into...whatever you prefer.
  • tylenol. I take 2 tylenol when I have a headache. doesn't always work, but helps.
  • Smelling AB. He smells good. I think he wears Armani Code, but I'm not sure. Mix that with a bit of his sweat and a hint of garlic (he eats lots of garlic), and I feel better real quick!
  • Over Easy Eggs. They must be fresh and served with buttered toast...not toasted light, toasted well done.

Car Update

Well, I got my car back last night!! God bless my brother-- he replaced the fuel filter, all spark plugs and boots (what's a boot?) and now my car feels like it has more power and not revving when I am stopped at a light!!
He said my spark plugs were fried and needed replacing.
Now, I have a powerful monster of a car. Its a definite wake up call that I will need to get a new car this fall. I am going to start saving all my avon money and hopefully Avon will pay for my new car in the next 6 months!! I think its very possible, too.

One of my regulars came to pick up her last order today. We were talking about how we keep extra deodorants in the car, one in the desk at work, one in my bathroom, one in my boyfriends bathroom...and the best part? Avon's deodorants are around 99 cents each (sometimes 89 cents when they are on sale!!). Roll Ons dry without leaving a "goo" on your skin. They smell great and work just as good as the $3-5 dollar varieties at the drugstore.
For every $1 deodorant you buy at my website, I will be 20 cents closer to paying for my new car!! lol.
Actually, I do love Avon's deodorants. My favorite is the skin so soft signature silk. It has a nice smell and works pretty good. You might not be able to run a marathon with it, but you can work in the office or run errands without offending anyone!
Don't forget to stop by my online Avon store and check out everything in the outlet section---this week it is jammed packed with super deals on EVERYTHING!!
Enjoy the spring day!!

Some Spring Musts

I know I have talked about Smooth Minerals Foundation before, but I love it! Sometimes I wear just Mark tinted moisturizer and the transparent glow Smooth Minerals over it and it looks great! Not cakey, not shiny, not powdery....just me, but better!!
Right now, Smooth Minerals has a sale with selected products 2 for $9.99. This includes Blush and Foundation!! How many brands do you know where you can get the loose powder foundation and blush, made of minerals for less than $10?? With a 100% guarantee, its worth trying, isn't it??
Make sure you have a great brush to apply your loose Smooth Minerals. I always dip the brush and tap it against the rim of the container. This way, you can "build" your coverage, layer by layer. Its better than putting too much on or applying it unevenly. I would suggest a Foundation that matches your skin tone (I use both Soft Ivory and Nude, depending on summer or winter) and then the Transparent glow to help set your color.

Astonishing Lengths Mascara is also a spring Must for me! Sometimes, I just wear my foundation or tinted moisturizer, lipbalm or gloss, and mascara. Subtle yet put together and simple. Astonishing Lengths Mascara is on sale with other eye products at the great price of 2 for $7.99!

Finally, my favorite of all things Avon: Naturals Bath Products!! This spring, try something that will awake the senses and you in the morning--- Grapefruit and Mint Naturals Shower Gel, Body Spray, Lip Balm and Lotion!! Right now, get the shower gel for only $1.89 and the lip balm for 99 cents!!!

Enjoy the day, spring has finally arrived!!

Win a Car with Glazewear!

I might be a bit early on this one...I am in Campaign 10 right now, but starting March 30-- You can win a car from Avon!!
Avon's Now is the Time to Shine Sweepstakes is simple. For every Glazewear purchased in Campaign 11 and 12, you will get one entry to fill out and mail in. One lucky winner will win a new, fully loaded 2010 Chevy Malibu!!
That's not lucky representative will also win a new car, too!! So, I will need your help because I want to win one!!
Glazewear Lipgloss will be on sale in Campaign 11 for $1.99 each. I love Glazewear lipglosses. There are ones designed to give sparkle, shine, or intense color. There is even a clear one with spf, just to add a traditional gloss. They are not sticky at all---very comfortable to wear! I remember buying a glazewear lipgloss when they first came out (I wanna say maybe 1999??) and I thought it was too thick...but they changed their formula since---so if you were turned off back in the day, Glazewear is great and worth trying again at $1.99!!
You can email me or visit my store --
This contest starts March 30--- You can PreOrder by email!!!!

Happy St Patrick's Day!!

Well, I am in the spirit, just not wearing green!
What a long day!! I had to do a bpo, which took an abnormal 5 hours!! Usually, I can belt one out in 2 hours. Not today. Nope. Also, I would like to think I am busy for the season (in real estate), but sometimes I think I am going super slow. I need some buyers and sellers!! I am sending about a dozen buyers lists of homes, but no one is looking right now. Not good! Offers need to be accepted by April 30 for the tax credit.
I put in my Avon order for this catalog, and it was huge!! That makes me happy, but ultimately fearing next years taxes after this years!!
**March will be the last month for my giveaways***
Please note this!! I may be doing giveaways again in the future, but as of today, March will be the last regular month for the large grab bag gifts I have done all last year!!
There will be a giveaway for March-- you must order something online before March 31 to qualify for the drawing. One winner will receive a grab bag full of Avon and Mark goodies, valued at more than $20.

Life sometimes sucks

My car kinda crapped out this week. I know my car is getting old, I got in 03, but I was hoping for another 6 months with it at least. Right now, its at my brother's home, he will try to fix it first. He is very sweet and let me borrow his work car, which isn't in the best shape, but runs.
I'm hoping the problem is fixable and under $300.
In kinda fitting news...Avon is having a new sweepstakes that everyone should try for! Coming in Campaign 11 (we are in 9 right now), you can try to win a new Chevy Malibu! For every Glazewear Lipgloss you buy, you will also receive an entry that you can mail in. The best part? They are giving away a malibu to one lucky customer, and they are giving away a malibu to one lucky rep, too!! So, my goal is to sell tons of Avon Glazewear Lip Glosses!!! I want (no, I NEED) to win!!!
This starts in Catalog 11, but that doesn't mean you can't help a girl out and order something you need now !! My online Avon Store is .
