, Hopefully the weather is going to improve over the next few weeks so time to find something a bit more summery to wear. I'm not a great one for shorts but I don't like looking out of place when everyone has got on there summer outfits on. This is where a nice pair of light coloured jeans comes in very useful. I recently bought the Oyster Jeans from Avon's Jeanetic range, however the weather hasn't been good enough up here to wear them but today I decided to dig them out and plan some outfits. So I paired them with the new Casa di Rosa sandals and two tops with asymmetric hems ... love both but think I'm going to go for the lime outfit for Smart Casual party I'm going to in May!! The trousers also look great with tunics and Kaftan style tops as well ... and I may post some more ideas if I can get my phone to upload the pics properly😉
I have been on the lookout for a new watch for ages. This is such a lovely watch with a genuine leather, slim strap. I love the over-sized dial with Orla Kiely's signature pattern which is fresh and creative. It comes in a beautiful gift box with a unique black and white floral print. It is a slightly pricier watch than what is normally offered in an Avon brochure, although considering it is a designer brand watch, it is good value for money.
Let me know what you think of this lovely new watch. Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi guys I'm a new AVON rep and campaign 9 is my first one! However, I think I've got to my first hurdle - and it hasn't even been a week yet! Lol. I've got a colleague asking about Christian lacroix rouge perfume as she loves it and only has a little bit left because she now saves it for special occasions because she didn't have an Avon rep. I can't find it in the brochure or online. I've contacted my leader and she said it's a popular one and should be available but neither of us can find it. Does anyone know if it has been discontinued or renamed/rebranded? Thanks.
Hi Beauty Connects,
Now brace yourselves, I think this is the most exciting product to have landed on the ABC desk since I begun this feature!
This gorgeous cross- body bag was designed in collaboration with world- renowned designer, Kenzo Takada and is exclusive for Avon!
The bag comes in a stunning bright orange shade and features gold-tone trims and hardware.
The inside is just as impressive with a beautiful floral lining which is reflected in the flower logo detail on the front of the bag.
Available from Brochure 9 ( online from 4th May). I can't wait to wear this in the summer!
Hi Beauty Connects!
Love the look of heels but like the comfort of flats? It's something us women often have to weigh up. Our lovely Customer Panel were asked the question and this is what they had to say...
Are you a heels or flats kinda girl?
This is my recent underwear addition,I was going to take a photo wearing it then though eh let's leave the wripples off camera,so this looks loverly with the lace on it ,the rings ect are a lovely copper colour,and the fit is perfect it give me great support and looks good under a white top ,it is under wired and also has a good elastic band going around the bottom of the bra,I would highly recommend this one!! A few years back Avon was getting it so wrong with the bra fittings but now all my bras are Avon and they all fit a treat,I've got the new racer back one coming this friday .
I couldn't resist a few purchases ready for my holiday, ten days and counting! The Casa Di Rosa shoes are perfect for walking along the beach, I've tried them on and the are nice and comfy and fit great without splitting the toes apart, I just need to paint my toe nails so the are beach ready. The Tabitha Webb beach bag is a great size for all the daily beach essentials with a three year old and it has a drawstring top which is great as nothing can fall out and the pickpockets won't be able to sneak their hands in around the Spanish markets. The bag for the swimming costume also matches the inside of the beach bag and I love that it has a bag with it so once it's wet it can be kept away from anything dry. The costume itself has a nice stretchy material and a bow to tie to cover up the tummy! The sun bracelet is a great idea for my little boy to wear, it will make him feel grown up being important to tell me when the colour changes so we can make sure we get some shade. And we have Avon's factor 50 for kids packed and ready to be covered in plus some after sun. And of course I couldn't resist the handbag by Kenzo, perfect for the evenings, big enough to fit my purse and a few essentials and it fits over my shoulder for added security. I love the bright colour perfect for the bright and beautiful sunshine.
I ordered the Spider-Man PJ's for my little boy, they are so cute. They are lovely and soft and as they have shorts rather than trousers they are perfect for the summer. My three year old is a Spider-Man fan and was really pleased when he saw that I had bought these for him. He's three so I bought age 3/4 and they fit nicely. They have the Spider-Man logo on the shorts, perfect to help Mommy pair up the PJ's when they've been washed so I know which bottoms go with which t-shirt. I washed them inside out and they came out as good as new.
These sandles are quite stylish for a flat Sandie,there really well made the colour I choose was the mustard shade,my daughter choose the black ones I'll post a picture of her wearing the black ones when I can tie her down ,they fit great and feel very comply I would wear these for a night out with some smart trousers or casual for day wear,I've already showed them my sister in both colours and she's ordering them in mustard,the fact they are real leather suede is also a bonus I really love the look of these sandles.
I saw this beautiful weekender from the Casa Di Rosa collection and I knew I had to get it. I normally use my Tabitha Webb Weekender whenever I go away, now I have a new bag. Meet the lovely Belfiore Weekender.
This beautiful bag is very spacious and is made with premium craftsmanship and quality. It has metal feet to prevent scuffing and has a good quality back lining. It has a phone pocket inside and also a zipped pocket, good for things that you don't want getting lost inside your bag.
This bag is styling yet practical, the colours are neutral so can match with any outfit. The colours are an off-white and black. I really love it and there is an attention to detail. The price tag is £32.50 in Brochure9, which I think is extremely reasonable. This will definitely be my go-to bag this Easter weekend when I go away. It can even be used as a normal handbag, especially if you tend to carry a lot like my Sister does. 😁
I hope you like it. Have you ordered this or will your be ordering it, I'd love to know.
Spoiler (Highlight to read) The quality of these PJ bottoms are appalling, after the first wash which was a 30 degree setting the colour has drained out of parts of the bottoms making them look old and warn , now if these were mine I would be returning them but my daughter is very disappointed in what's happened to them but loves beauty and the beast so she wants to keep them but be warns if your thinking of getting these.
Hi Beauty Connects!
You may have spotted in our latest brochure (Brochure 7) that we're featuring women just like you, our customers!
Meet the panel as they describe their style in 3 words, their go- to fashion staple and what they'd pick between heels and flats!
I've just received the Madelyn Lace Up Woven Leisure Shoe, as soon as I took that from the box I was like 'these are ridiculously light' so light I was worried they wouldn't have any support. Boy was I wrong. They are really supporting and super soft. The laces look like ribbon but are really strong. Also the sizing is perfect. These are going to be my go-to shoes this summer 😊
I have to admit I’m usually a heels kind of girl, in fact it doesn’t matter where I’m going I’m wearing my heels. I had the privilage of visiting Avon’s Head office in Northampton yesterday and the car park was a short walk through the park away, but that didn’t stop the heels! I saw these shoes in Avon’s First Look magazine – that’s the magazine for Avon Representatives to purchase products before they appear in the main brochure six weeks later – and when I saw them something drew me to them so I thought why not order them. When they arrived I tried them on, I’m a size 4 so I have relatively small feet, and the fit was good and true to size. And my gosh they were amazingly comfortable. I expected some tightness like I get with trainers but these are so flexible and comfy – I'll be recommending them!
