Get into the Zen Zone with Avon's Wellbeing Candle
Hi there, I’m Glenice from Avon Area 883. Sales Leader, Mother of Twins and author of the blog www.teamavonista.wordpress.com . I have had the pleasure of getting in the Zen Zone and have completely fallen in love with Avon’s new and relaxing , Wellbeing Range . The products are part of a new and exciting range of products that are beautifully packaged make you feel chilled out the moment you open them up. They are designed to give you a feeling of pure, natural energy and put you in a place of total calm. I always encourage people to take time out for themselves because I believe that we all need a good amount of time dedicated to our well-being. I personally love to meditate and centre myself when I wake up and when I go to sleep because it just helps me face the day and gives me a good night’s sleep when I need it. Candles, diffusers and other home fragrances are all part of the wellbeing range. They simply transform the energy in any home and this is something that Avon do really well. The beauty of these fragrances is immeasurable. From the cool cucumber complimenting the bamboo and white freesia will definitely give your home a refreshing lift that gives your senses the mellow, calm that you need after a hard day at work or even to give you a sense of inner peace when you wake up.     For a true statement candle that screams luxury without breaking the bank, the Wellbeing Candle is the perfect in between home fragrance in the Wellbeing home fragrance range. Whereas the diffuser gives a light lift to your room and the ceramic burner allows you as much intensity as you desire, the Wellbeing Candle is the perfect in between level of home fragrance in the range. For those that prefer a mid-way sustained flow of this gorgeous scent, you would do well to opt for the candle. I absolutely love the Avon range of candles that we have had so far – vanilla, salted caramel, but this candle is by far my most favourite. It is an easy-going scent that is subtle but really present. It really does help bring and transform an atmosphere in your home. The white freesia gives you a floral lift which is balanced out with the cool and calm of the cucumber. The packaging gives you spa luxury in your home and the wooden lid gives an added natural finish.   Feel free to follow my celebration of All things Avon on my blog www.teamavonista.wordpress.com . I look forward to seeing you there!!   Glenice xx

Get into the Zen Zone with Avon's Wellbeing Ceramic Burner and Wax Melts

From the cool cucumber complimenting the bamboo and white freesia will definitely give your home a refreshing lift that gives your senses the mellow, calm that you need after a hard day at work or even to give you a sense of inner peace when you wake up.   The Ceramic Burner and Wax Melts are absolutely divine! This beautiful burner wouldn’t look out of place amongst the furnishings in any home. You get a tealight candle and a pack of 10 pretty wax melts. They have the same incredible smell of the diffuser – freesia, balanced with bamboo and cucumber. They are perfect for those of you that want a more sustained home fragrance or those that have a larger room. The pretty petal design is just perfect for a dusk / sunset setting when the light from the tealight candle bounces around your room. The Wax Melts allow you to gain a more intense fragrance and 3 melts last give a fragrance for approximately 45 minutes, so you can determine the level of intensity. As a complete fan of this scent, I found that 2-3 were perfect to create that extra level of calm and perfect for total relaxation at the end of the day.   Feel free to follow my blog on www.teamavonista.wordpress.com . I look forward to seeing you there!   Glenice

Get into the Zen Zone with Avon's Wellbeing Diffusers

They are designed to give your home a soft spread of fragrance across your room and has the double add of looking stylish too. The Wellbeing Diffusers come in these gorgeous glass pots for your oil and gently spread the fragrance across your room. I poured the oil straight into the pot as I feel that this gives you the control of how much you want to use. I love the simplicity of the design and the wooden lid adds to the natural feel of the range but be careful because the oil can stain the wood if you’re not careful. I have been waiting for this scent to arrive in any of Avon’s home fragrance ranges. It’s light. It’s fresh and conjures up images of idyllic countryside settings.  If you want the light touch spread of Wellbeing then diffusers are for you. These diffusers are due to last for 7 weeks so are worth every penny as they are £7 in Brochure 15. You can alter the intensity by varying the number of reeds. I will be buying at least three of these diffusers to spread around the house because I absolutely love the smell of them. I hope that you enjoy them too.   I'm on a journey to reveiew an Avon product a day for 2017 so feel free to follow my blog www.teamavonista.wordpress.com for all things Avon xx   Glenice

Meet the LLFC squad
Hi Beauty Connects!   Back in April we revealed a very exciting partnership with Liverpool Ladies Football Club, becoming the first  independent shirt sponsor of the club. The groundbreaking move for a beauty brand to sponsor a women's football club shows how Avon continues to break down boundaries and force out gender stereotypes. You can read more here .   Women's football has increasingly become a huge topic of conversation over the last few weeks with Clare Balding's Chanel 4 documentary highlighting how women's football is on the rise regardless of the obstacles it has faced in the past. On top of this, the Women's Euros 2017 are currently being played in the Netherlands, gaining press coverage like never before.    If you've been watching the games then you may recognise some faces from the Liverpool Ladies team representing their respective countries, England, Scotland and Netherlands.    Here at Avon HQ in Northampton we are cheering on Siobhan Chamberlain, Alex Greenwood and Casey Stoney from the Lionesses who are of to a winning start and are our favourites to win.    Other Liverpool Ladies players in the tournament are Caroline Weir from the Scottish Women's team, who are having less luck having been beaten by England yesterday, and stiker Shanice Van De Sanden who is part of the Netherlands squad and scored the opening goal of the tournament in-front of the home crowd.   When asked by LFC magazine about the Euro's the ladies said the following:    Siobhan Chamberlain - England “Every single fixture is going to be a difficult match where you’ve got to be on top of your game to get a win.”     Alex Greenwood - England “Can England win the Euros? Yes, absolutely. Why not? I’m confident and I know the team is confident.”     Casey Stoney – England “I see it as a massive opportunity for us to go there and be successful and keep changing the face on women’s football in this country. Then hopefully my little girl and her generation will grow up with far more opportunities than my generation had when we were growing up.”   Shanice Van De Sanden -  Netherlands “Because we are playing at home, there will be loads of people and it should be very colourful – they’ll be singing and getting behind us. If performances are right, it can be really important for our country because then the women’s’ football league will be of greater interest to other players as well.”     Caroline Weir – Scotland “It’s going to be the biggest women’s Euro tournament there’s ever been.”     Fancy knowing more about the Liverpool Ladies involved in the Euros? We have the need-to-know on the international stars of the summer.     Ashley Hodson Nationality: English Squad No.: 36 Ashley has come through the club’s coveted youth development scheme and is making great progress.

Fresh and Fabulous Blog - What’s In My Summer Clutch Bag?

Hi, LovedByLaura here!

 

Summer is finally here and you know what that means? It’s wedding season! If that didn’t keep my weekends busy enough, I’m also cramming in a trip to London for afternoon tea and a day out at the races this season so my clutch bag is going to be kept very busy!  

 

Here’s what I keep in mine (a very cute Lipsy number by the way) to see me through every eventuality: 

 

Mark. Glow On Pressed Powder- This little compact does triple duty which is great news when you only have a little bag! Not only does it help keep my makeup intact and my face shine free, it’s also SPF30 and has a really good sized mirror too which is super handy for touch ups when I’m out and about. 

 

Avon Whats In My Clutch Bag 8 .jpg

 

Mark. Be Blushed Cream Blush Stick- This applies as a cream but gently buff a small amount into the apples of your cheeks with your finger and it will transform into a powder blush with a beautiful hint of shimmer. It looks gorgeous with a hint of a tan and is perfect for bringing back a healthy glow after a long day! 

 

Avon Whats In My Clutch Bag 7 .jpg

 

Mark. Plump It Up Lip GlossI prefer lip gloss to lipstick in Summer and this slimline version from Mark. is the perfect choice. It provides a subtle tint to enhance your lips natural shade and has a non sticky lip plumping formula to leave you with luscious fuller lips!

Safety Pins- You’re not going to need one of these very often, but on that one occasion where your bra strap breaks or your skirt unexpectedly rips you’ll thank me for this one. I never leave the house without one after my own embarrassing incident! 

 

Avon Whats In My Clutch Bag 12 .jpg

 

Tissues- There’s always some reason that you need a few tissues in your bag whether it’s the disaster of queueing for hours to find that there’s no loo roll, or an unexpected makeup emergency!

Mints/Gum- For that time you meet The One after having a garlic pizza! Or, er, just want to feel minty fresh after a long day.

Mini Purse- I hate that awkward moment when I know I’ve got the change to pay for my drink but just can’t seem to find it in the dark recesses of my handbag! Nowadays a slimline little purse for coins and notes earns its spot in my clutch to save my blushes! 

 

So I hope you liked having a peek inside my Summer clutch bag. What essentials do you keep in yours?
