The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Everyone loves getting bonuses and perks with their jobs!  Just because Avon is a a side hustle for me doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy achieving incentives to win prizes and getting swag bags at events!  Luckily, Avon is incredibly generous and I’ve gotten loads of prizes and freebies over the years.  The slideshow above only shows a portion of the goodies I’ve received over the past 3 years.  (Prior to that I failed to capture and post photos.  Sorry, my bad.)

What was the first perfume you wore? The first makeup product? The first skin care product you bought? Buckle your seat belts and be prepared for a walk down memory lane as I admit to some of my firsts!

In mid-1996 I started my journey as an Avon lady.  I joined because I’d moved from California to Oregon and I was faced with the decision of finding a new (unknown to me) Avon lady or becoming one myself to get the discount on my own purchases.  If you know me, you know I’m all about deals, so I opted to become what we in the biz call a “personal shopper”, e.g., someone who becomes a rep to utilize the discount for their own purchases.
