Ding Dong! Avon Calling!

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Ever on the quest for microhappies, I thought I would share one of my oldie but goodies with you. I have a few new ones too but I'll share these at a later date :)


This may sound a bit 'fuddy duddy', but I absolutely bloomin' well love it when the Avon Lady (mine is called Sarah and she is tres nice) drops off the catalogue. I like to make a little time for myself (a good 15 minutes usually does the trick), sit down with a pen to hand in case I want to order anything and have a gooooood look at every single page.

I don't order something every time but I do keep an open mind when flicking through. This time I am ordering this really sweet 'Dana Bird Cage Necklace' -picture from avon website-. It's soooo pretty and for only £5, I figured why not hop on the birds-are-so-in bandwagon?


I always order liquid handsoap from Avon because they come in pretty colours and scents so I chop and change depending on my bathroomy mood. I also luurrvvee Avon makeup brushes (I use my powder brush every day. It's very soft and dense) and have an array of Avon lipsticks and mascaras. The best thing I ever ordered was about a year ago and I bought my watch. It's Morgan which isn't usually my style but it's black and sparkly and draws in a LOT of compliments. Perhaps I shall show you my Avon treasures in another post if it tickles you?

So bargainistas, I strongly advise you to have a look through your brochure next times it flops through your door or have a gander online. I really like the personal service of having an Avon Lady and having things delivered to my door. Most the time, by the time it arrives a week later, I have forgotten what I ordered and it's a wonderful little surprise. Sometimes Sarah the Avon Lady even pops a sample in with my order. A lllllloooooonnnggg while ago I was an Avon Lady myself and I know that it's not free to dish out samples so I always appreciate it when she does that for me.

So what do you think of Avon? Are you strictly MAC/Illamasqua/Nars/Clinique etc or do you ever opt for a more affordable brand?

Bloggeroo your thoughts!

Toodlepip!

  7. I used to be an Avon lady! :) Pretty time consuming though for not a lot of cash so I guess all the more reason to appreciate them. Think they'll prob get a few more sales from having Reese Witherspoon advertising them too. You might have tempted me to see if there's an Avon lady when I move house in a few weeks... xx

  9. I love Avon. They're clearskin or whatever scrub is the best I've tried and I love their glazewear lip glosses. I found them similar to MAC lipglasses TBH.
