Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

On Monday, I soaked up some rays during my lunchtime walk outdoors in Avon’s Tonal Spring Sweater, Adjustable Feather Pendant Necklace and the flower studs from their Bee and Flower Stud Earring Pack!

This sweater is a perfect weight for springtime!  A cami is a must and could really be interesting in different colors, but I remained boring (mostly to show off the sweater itself) and stuck with a white cami underneath.  I freaking love the button detail on the wrist cuffs, and I’m a huge fan of the scooped bottom edge of the sweater to assist with visual slimming!  Only one small annoyance: the tag calls for dry cleaning.  And I’ll be ignoring that.  It’s 100% cotton, so I plan on washing it in cold water and laying it flat to dry–you know, like every other sweater I own!

The feather necklace is on that same type of luxurious adjustable chain that I described here.  I am over the moon that Avon seems to be on board with creating more necklaces with this style of chain…it’s quickly becoming my second favorite–right behind chokers, of course!  The feather pendant is no slouch either!  Boasting an articulated skeleton, the joints move around, but aren’t floppy–making it meld to whatever curves are (or aren’t) there.  Plus, it sparkles! 

The two pair of stud earrings are so stinkin’ cute–if I only had two holes in my ears, I’d wear them together!  But, alas, I do not…because I’m traditional, yo!  So, for this particular outfit, I chose the more sparkly ones so they wouldn’t be lost in the leaf parade.  I really think it worked out a bit better than anticipated because the earrings shine bright in my sweater pics and the leaf pendant seems to fade away a bit.  

All said, this outfit (jewelry and all) will be making repeat performances in the coming weeks–all winners!

This week I featured daily sale highlights from Avon’s campaign 2 as follows:

A long while back, I was asked by one of my Avon customers how to prevent lipstick from feathering/bleeding. There are tons of tricks out there. The most common reason lipstick feathers/bleeds is because your lips are too dry.

The usual steps to take are…
