Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

This week I featured daily sale highlights from Avon’s campaigns 14 and 15 as follows…

Every dang weekend is grey and rainy, so I visibly protested last weekend’s weather by wearing Avon’s Modern Abalone Pendant Necklace and the fans/half shells from the Everyday Glam Stud Earring Mega Pack!

First up is the necklace–it’s a layered necklace with abalone AND a choker!!  Those two elements put this in the “I must own it” category.  However, there are two things about this necklace keeping me from absolutely loving it: (1) the choker layer looks very cheaply made in person, doesn’t lay smoothly, and (of course) my pencil-neck means it’s more of a collar necklace than a choker on me because the chain doesn’t cinch up small enough; and (2) the pendant tends to stick to my skin, and tends to hang off-kilter.  ::whomp, whomp::

The stud earrings are super cute!  Because they are so small, the detail can’t really be seen from a distance, which is a shame because the detail is what make these so great.  This mega pack has so many terrific and flexible pieces in it!

Last Saturday, I celebrated my birthday by having homemade tacos with the fam in Avon’s Sparkling Pink Statement Necklace and Earring Set!

Every girl deserves a princess birthday–and with the help of this set, I felt like a was dripping in in jewelry fit for a princess!  The necklace, in particular, was a showstopper!  With the varying lengths of hanging glass stones, it makes just about every neckline luxurious.  Plus, white, pink, and gold together is a classic combo.  While the earrings failed to wow me as much as the necklace, they played a very important supportive role by not stealing the limelight and holding their own in the presence of a supernova.  Now, where’s my crown?

I stumbled through Monday in Avon’s Modern Pink Loop Earrings!

These earrings may be feather light, but they pack a big accessory punch!  The wire loop is unusually long, which I originally wasn’t keen on–but then I put them on.  I might just be a sucker for pink and black together, but I feel like these make a huge statement without having to take up the space “true” statement pieces traditionally occupy.  For those of us who are on the smaller side, these are a godsend!  Fun, interesting, beautiful–you can have all three!
