There’s just something special about your favourite fragrance, isn’t there? I’m a big fan of perfumes, it starts my day off with the feeling of luxury. One of the first things I do each morning is pick out my choice of perfume depending on several factors such as my mood, the weather, the season, and what my plans are for that particular day. This is why I have so many, I love collecting perfumes and always have done.
Think about when you’re treating yourself to a new perfume? It’s an enjoyable experience, right? From the moment you clap eyes on the bottle design to the very first spritz to the empowering campaigns that promise you confidence and self-assurance. From beginning to end, the process of finding your favourite perfume is the beginning of making good memories. A certain perfume can evoke a past time, turning what appears to be a ‘nice bottle of perfume’ in to one of the most powerful ways to bring back a certain memory.
I adore how unique a perfume is to your senses and skin. Detecting different fragrance notes, what we can smell is totally different to what someone else can.
What Avon had in mind when they developed three new Eve Discovery fragrances is that you can have one for every occasion and every mood. The three new Eve perfumes from their Discovery collection are aptly named Elegance, Alluring, and Confidence. With the affordable price points, you really can treat yourself to all three; three different scents to wear depending on the moment or the mood, to create an inner sense of elegance, allure, and confidence.
Avon perfumes have been a favourite of mine. I keep in my handbag as a daily beauty essential and I also have a bottle sitting on my desk at work and spray whenever needed (my work colleagues always ask to borrow it too, they can’t believe it’s from Avon either). They’re high in quality, affordable, and they look gorgeous on the dresser, especially with the way Avon’s Eve Discovery bottles are cut. They almost resemble precious gemstones.
One of most exciting thing about the launch of Avon’s Eve Discovery fragrance range is that Hollywood star Eva Mendes is the face of the new campaign - a strong, sophisticated, beautiful woman that empowers other women. But what about the perfumes? How do they measure up, I hear you ask?
The pretty faceted pink bottle houses a sophisticated floral, fruity scent of pomegranate, jasmine petals, and amberwood. Upon first spritz, the juicy zing hits your nose but the dry down is a light floral. It’s a great day-to-night perfume. The pink bottle design reflects elegance and femininity.
Although it is hard to pick, I think Confidence might be my favourite (I have to stress that it is really hard to pick, though! They’re all so gorgeous). Described as oriental, vanillic and woody, Confidence combines notes of blackcurrant, frangipani and oakwood for a beautiful day time fragrance (perfect for Spring and Summer!). The bottle reminds me of a canary gemstone with it’s triangular cut and radiant appearance. It gives off the confident vibes as soon as you set your sights on it.
Show the alluring side to your personality with this lilac toned bottle which is filled with a perfume that offers a more sensual and captivating scent. The main fragrance notes are pink plum, neroli and sandalwood which creates an oriental floral woody aroma. The bottle design is smooth, slightly elongated with a curvy base and the fragrance is much more suited for the evening.
Which fragrance from the Eve Discovery collection will you be trying?
I’m really excited to show you some of the latest pieces from the new Coveted collection and introduce you to fashion blogger, Ashley Wilson who recently worked with Avon for the launch of the collection.
Ashley, also known as @amothersedit, has a huge following of 33K+ on her Instagram platform where she documents her life as a mum, her OOTD’s (outfits of the day, FYI) and her love of accessories. When asked about what inspired her to work on the collection she said “I’ve always wanted to work with Avon. It’s an amazing brand that empowers women to look and feel good with quality products at great prices”.
From the collection of unique, limited- edition pieces (that are EXCLUSIVE to Avon), Ashley said that loves the look of the ripped jeans. “These ripped jeans are so on- trend and super comfortable! I love the cool rock- chick studs on the pockets”.
Ashley loves accessories so it was no surprise that she’s a fan of the Allana Drop Earrings. “I love the 2- tone gold and silver effect on these earrings, stunning! They’re perfect for dressing up any outfit!” Ashley said the collection reflects her style in that she likes to team basics such as the jeans and Coveted biker- style jacket with jewellery and accessories.
The Allana Hobo bag is a stand- out from the collection, Ashley said that the “patent strap with studs and metallic finish give the bag an edge and make it a statement piece”.
It's me- Misha! I'm here to show you how you can up your brow game in 2018 using the amazing range of brow products from mark.!
Let me start by saying that Avon truly haven't missed the ‘Mark’ with their brand spanking new mark. brow range (do you see what I did there?!). First things first, let’s discuss the mark. Perfect Brow Sculpting Pencil; think creamy, sharp and intense (and no I am not talking about a chocolate gateau on this occasion!!) It takes your brows from a solid 2 to a sparkling 10 in seconds. If even me, Misha Grimes can achieve a (kinda) Cara Delevingne vibe brow than by golly you all can!!
Moving on to quite literally a pot of chocolatey goodness (I wouldn't actually suggest eating a mark. Perfect Brow Crème Gel Pot but you get the jist). Brow Crèmes seem to be a big fear within the eyebrow community (let’s pretend that is an actual thing and if it isn’t then we're making one). Fear not for Avon’s pot of gold teamed with their Eyebrow Duo Brush means its so so simple; it’s like putting pen to paper… but… if you are a clutz like me just grab the spoolie side and you brush away all the negativity in your brow life.
Are you ready this… You can go on that swimming date!!!! Both the Brow Pencils and Crèmes are waterproof. YIPPPEE *grabs snorkel & flippers*
Last but most certainly not least, we have the mark. Perfect Brow Kit; this little palette of goodness is perfect for that "I didn’t even try but I still look blooming fabulous" look. If you're planning on getting fit in 2018 and want to exercise with these brows than feel free as the wax sets those bad boys in place- no slipping and sliding for you! Personally, I shall still save the exercise to the pros and sit back and adore my beautiful brows all thanks to Avon.
