Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my local Avon meeting.  Attending local meetings accomplish many things, including socializing and supporting my local sister reps, being able to see some of the new products coming our way, and (my favorite) learning tips and tricks that we’ve each picked up along the way.  During this particular meeting, I was discussing an issue I had with a new bath oil product: the pour hole was huge and I felt like I was consistently wasting product in the shower because of it.

Last week, I let you pick my pedicure!  I’ve previously let my readers choose my polishes and the results can be found here, here, and here.  Once all the votes from this round were tallied, both Option B and Option C were TIED for the winner, so MY VOTE broke the tie and the winner was Option B, which consisted of Avon’s Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Envy (this shade has been discontinued) and Avon DDazzlers Top Coat in Show Stopper Copper (line has been discontinued):

It’s Favorites Friday!!

Who among you is/was a big fan of Suave’s fruity shampoos and conditioners in the 70s, 80s and 90s?  Those mouthwatering scented products left my hair smelling fresh and delicious!  Enter Avon’s Kids Tangle Wrangle Leave-In Conditioner & Detangler Spray!  While marketed towards children, I actually use this spray in my own hair following my shower to help detangle my locks and keep it looking beautiful – plus it smells positively divine, bringing a giant smile to my face every single day!  The spray tames fly-aways and features a delicious very berry scent.  

I have now joined the ranks of so many great bloggers before me and been “interviewed” on Bottomless Coffee’s (“BC’s”) podcast!  To those already familiar with BC, it may surprise you that we interact regularly: me, a beauty blogger, and BC, a political blogger.  The two don’t naturally go together, but BC asks the tough questions and genuinely wants to hear all sides.  He is willing to admit when you’ve schooled him and is gracious when you flat out disagree.  I am especially delighted by the obvious respect between BC and Steve, two friends IRL who, often, have opposing political views.  It’s fun to hear them go at it while still being respectful of each other.  If you want to hear and read dynamic convos on hot (and longtime) political issues, make sure to check out his blog, Bottomless Coffee 007, and other podcast episodes – there’s tons of material there and you’re sure to find one or more that you’ll wholeheartedly agree, or disagree, with and want your opinion to be known.  On the flip side, BC also records podcast episodes with fellow bloggers of all sorts, not just political bloggers – no two podcasts are alike.  In that respect, he’s very much a people person and truly wants to get to know his virtual friends.
