Depression
This may seem like a negative post but I know many people who suffer from it! Soon I think it's going to be Mental Health Week (I think it's called that) so I wanted to post my perspective on depression and how you don't have to feel alone, if you have it, or if you know people who suffer from it - please be sympathetic with them! (This is my own thoughts from my FB status, this morning).   Was thinking about depression today, and how it's not something a depressed person can get out of by pulling themselves together! By saying that - you may as well go up to a person with cancer and say - pull yourself together - can't be done! Being depressed is like:   Being in a very deep and dark pit which has slimy sides and no footholds With 2 broken legs A dislocated shoulder A concrete block on your head weighing you down   (Or imagine being in the sea and not being able to surface - something is keeping you under the water!)   There seems to be no way out - it's so dark down there. There is a way out, but the depression clouds judgement, clouds the person's inward vision, it makes the person very introspective - all that matters is their world - no they are not being selfish - they are struggling to see beyond themselves because the darkness of depression surrounds them like the darkest and blackest of nights. They feel helpless, hopeless, alone, out of control, fearful, unloved and the last thing they want to hear is - Pull yourself together!   Don't dismiss anyone who may have signs of depression - they need YOUR love and support, not your judgement!

How do you store your make-up?
  This is the whole range together - I look organised, but this is about the only thing which is organised lol!   The storage for the foundation etc, I bought in The Range and it's really for desk storage, but hey - why not use it for make-up? I can't remember how much it was.   The little boxes were also bought in The Range (again, I can't remember the price)   I have a labeller so each lipstick has a label of the colour on the lid and on the base Each eye shadow has a label of the colour on it so it's easily identifiable Each Blusher has a label on too!   Non-labelled products:   Eye liners, lip liners etc, I put upside down so the identfying colour strip is showing! Mascara - I only wear black and that's not often because I don't like it! Concealers are the same colour (tone) so I don't label those either   How do you organise your make up products?

Highlight of the Year Competition!
Hi everyone,   Contouring seems to be HUGE right now, with everyone creating that bone structure they've always longed for using a mixture of highlighting, sculpting and blushing techniques with their make-up!   Well, Avon have done something great! They've created the Blush and Bronze Trio compact that allows all of these things to be done in just ONE mirrored compact      We therefore thought that it would be great to give 10 away to 10 lucky Avon Beauty Connects winners     SO, for your chance to win 1 of these 10 Blush and Bronze Trio compacts, all we want you to tell us is:   " What’s your highlight of the year so far, or to come? "   This could be absolutely ANYTHING, from going blonde for summer, to going on - or having been on- a great weekend break or holiday!   Whatever the highlight of YOUR year, please let us know! We'll then announce our 10 winners on Wednesday 15th July    Good luck everyone!   Char x

My Avon Story
Hello everyone, I began selling Avon 15 years ago when i found that i had no representative in my area-so i thought ' why dont I do it?! I always used to buy Avon from when I was 18years old and knew the products were really good.   I must say my avon business has grown over the years without me trying because its a well known brand and it really sells itself. Now with the POB online, my customer base is really taking off. I love it because it encourages social interaction and that can only be a good thing, and ive made so many freinds. Now my children have grown up I can devote more time to selling Avon, and I know my business will only get bigger and better. I feel my life has been enriched by Avon so a big thank you to for all the support and help on the website!!!
