Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Those who know me know I have a serious necklace habit with a tremendous lack of impulse control when it comes to chokers. There is rarely a choker I’ve met that I didn’t then covet or own. My love of chokers began when I was a preteen. I was drawn to the Victorian era ladies who wore chokers and I thought they were beautiful and elegant. I figured I could achieve a bit of their elegance by crafting my own choker with ribbon. Thus, my love affair with chokers was born.

A question that comes up A LOT is: I’m going to do my first event – what Avon products should I have for sale?

Avon has a ridiculously HUGE line of products that changes with every campaign – EVERY TWO WEEKS!  When you’re new to the bazaar world, it’s next to impossible to anticipate which products among hundreds (if not thousands) will be the best sellers.

I’d been in serious need of a mask for a long while – I should be better about doing them, but I consider myself lucky if I manage to remove makeup and wash my face before slamming into the pillow at night!  I finally got around to doing it last Saturday night and decided to scare you all with the pics cuz I’m a sharer! 😉  I do think it’s hilarious that Facebook knew the second pic was of me but had no clue the first pic was – so much for facial recognition, eh? Just walk around with a charcoal mask on your face and you are good!

I have an oily, acne-prone teenager face, so I use Avon’s Clearskin® Pore Penetrating Black Mineral Mask.  It’s effective for me, and I really like it primarily because it changes colors to let you know you’re done!

How did YOU spend your Saturday night?

Avon Moisture Therapy In-Shower Body Lotion

It’s Favorites Friday!!

As an Avon lady, I hate admitting that I suck at certain things that my customers (and other Avon ladies) consider to be basic.  Applying body lotion is one of these things as I generally hate the process of it.  I have historically been bad about putting lotion on regularly for two main reasons: (1) it’s time consuming; and, (2) it’s messy. Blech!

Early this year, Avon released their Moisture Therapy In-Shower Body Lotion line and I figured I’d give it a whirl to see whether or not I’d be any better at applying body lotion more regularly.  The verdict: I LOVE IT – it’s been a total game changer for me! Continue reading

Did you know that there is a PROPER way to apply hand lotion? I learned this trick in 1996 at an Avon meeting – one of my first as an Avon rep.  It’s stuck with me since and I’ve shared it hundreds of times over, much to the delight of many! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the technique, I demonstrated it in the following video:

My actual nail polish collection

First things first, I never paint my fingernails.  I am rough on my hands and my  fingernails are just plain woeful.  There is absolutely no need to draw any kind of attention to my jacked up fingernails.

On the flip side, I love having painted toenails; however, my feet are pretty disgusting.  I power walk and run, so my feet are constantly sporting blisters in various states of healing and the calluses should be named.  To deal with my feet, I have found several things that can make them appear party ready…at least until the party is over!
