I have worn Avon Leggings for ages - in fact they are the only leggings I wear!! I find all other makes just go baggy at the knees and don’t fit as well - the Avon Control Leggings have been my favourites for years (in fact I’ve owned them for years and they still look as good as when I first bought them).
So when I noticed the new Zaria Bamboo Leggings in the brochure I had to give them a go!
Firstly Bamboo is a material chosen, particularly by walkers etc because of its breathability and because it stays fresher for longer... it is also lovely against the skin. There are clothing companies whose complete range is made from Bamboo.
So how did Avon’s offering compare?
Well I have to say they are amazing... my first impression was how soft they feel and yet when wearing they still have the great look of the original Avon Leggings I have - no bagginess at the knees etc etc. They are lovely and thick so no skin showing through the material and yet they feel lovely and airy (it was a hot day when I tried mine and I wasn’t feeling like I would start to overheat in them). This is really important for me as in the summer I want to look trendy and feel cool but I am really not going to be wearing shorts any time soon!! These Bamboo Leggings will be perfect - teamed with a long tunic and gladiator sandals I will feel summery and cool without showing off my horrible legs!
All in all I would definitely recommend the new Zaria Bamboo Leggings ... in fact have a look at the sports inspired bra, also in the range, it’s really pretty. Great items to keep cool this summer 😉
I am a handbag addict and have aboot 30 or more. However I can never find an Avon handbag I like. They are either too big, don't have enough pockets or else have a stupid pop fastener at the top instead of a zip - whihc is no security at all if your bag falls over.
I love the Kipling style bags but find it amazing that with all the Avon ones on sale over the years I have not found one I like or that I could recommend to anyone.
The one exception was a tan zipped cross body bag which was quite good for Avon but not the sort of colour I would go for.
Hi, I got a Multi way jumpsuit last year and now I've dug it out again for my holidays I can't remember how it ties to make the different top parts. Can anyone help? Pictures / video would be really handy. xx
These four gorgeous colours!
I have never brought glasses from avon but I thought hey why not! Everything I have brought from avon recently has been spot on and beautiful. These were an absolute bargain too at £3:50 , would recommend these to friends and family.
I tend to have trouble with my tiny ears and small nose with glasses sliding off but these were great and there was no such problems! Being a massive skincare and nail range fan off avons, I was a avon fashion virgin and I wasn't disappointed either. These came in green , purple and pink too!
They are also in a trendy oversize shape too ,with uv lenses and anti glare. I'm getting a pink pair next 💓 Only disappointment is the missing blue ones!! But I'm greedy I want them all!!
Loving these sunglasses!!
Uh–oh, I found another product from Avon which I know I’m going to get LOTS more of, the One Bra!
The first thing I do when I get in from work is take my underwired bra off. It doesn’t matter what style or size I wear, by the end of the day I’m desperate to get it off which is why I started looking for a comfy alternative. This is my first and won’t be my last. The Lace One Bra is sooooo comfortable, the lace front is a nice touch and it’s good quality too.
I ordered size 14/16, easy to put on over my head, I didn’t adjust the straps and luckily for me, it fit perfectly. The lace is soft and stretchy, the double straps cross over the back, and has removable cups. For my bust size it gives excellent support, and most of all, comfort. 87% Nylon, 13% Elastane.
Which brings me to my next new piece of comfortable clothing, the Frill Lounge Dress. The first thing that struck me about the dress was the quality of the material. I was expecting it to be T-Shirt material, or similar to PJ material, but it’s thicker than that and has a fleece backing.
The Frill Lounge dress will be perfect for pottering around the house and garden, or when you get out the bath/shower and it’s too early for PJs but you want something comfy to wear.
The fabric is super soft, I love the frilly armholes and has two patch pockets on the front. I’m 5ft 6in and ordered size 14/16. 86% Cotton, 14% Polyester.

I ordered this as a Christmas present 🎁 from my Husband and I love it and the pics don't do it justice in my opinion !! The Handbag has a pocket were the belt is and also has 3 sections inside the Handbag 1 zip in middle section which fit's the purse perfectly and is very secure !! You have to large sections either side that have pockets for phone, Lipsticks, perfume etc, The Kikyo Purse is a lovely size and fits about 6-8 credit cards and a zipped coin section. I love the Flower pattern on the inside material, They are both beautifully made.
If you have been considering getting these and like your bling order them,they are as sparkerly as they look in the book and when the sun is on them they look stunning,they are padded under foot so are very comphy to walk in, the under sole is made of rubber and is about just over a centimeter deep at the heel end so should last quite a while,I am saving these for my holiday these are nice enough to wear on a night out they are that nice,I don't take many heels abroad these days so these will be perfect for my needs both day and night.
Gooooood Morning ABC’s!
What better way to endure daylight saving day than going to bed early and new jarmas!!
Last night I couldn’t wait to hop into bed with fresh clean sheets and wear my delightful Hibiscus Frill Pyjamas from Avon.
The straight legged white pants are covered in bright pink bold Hibiscus flowers and have an elasticated waist.
The bright pink V-neck short sleeve top is decorated with a frill around the front neckline in the same material as the pants.
I’m 5ft 6in and I’m wearing size 14/16 and I would say they are true to size.
Made from 100% cotton, the Hibiscus Frill PJ’s are very comfy. These are my first Avon PJ’s and I’m definitely buying more. In fact, I’ve already got my second pair lined up and I’ve got my eye on a third!
I’m starting to wonder if my PJ collection is growing faster than my going out clothes. Hey ho!

Well, I did it again, my 3rd set of Avon PJs and this is my fave so far…..well, until next time!
As I’m a self-confessed crazy cat lady, the VIP Leopard PJ’s are purrfect!
They emerald green top (my photos make it look a bit blue) with an adorable leopard looking out, has ruched shoulders, metallic details on the leopard’s collar and wording VIP Pyjama Party on the front. The top is long and roomy.
The bottoms are black leggings with gold metallic stud effects on the ankles.
I got a size 14/16 and I say they are true to size.
Now.....which PJs shall I get next????

My bags are all packed and ready for the Lisbon trip tomorrow, my hand luggage bag is of course the new Antler bag.
I love the summer colour and the fact that it fits on top on my suitcase handle leaving my hands free for my passport. The bag itself has three zip compartments so it will fit all my daily essentials- beach towel, sun tan lotion etc. for when we are out during the day.
I just had to share this super cute pic of my friend Emma and her girls wearing the new Little Mermaid PJs - how cute? I have the set too and it's so nice to snuggle up on the sofa #twinning with my daughter!
Have you got your set yet? We would love you to share your pics!

The sun is out, summer holiday booked and the mission to find a swimsuit completed. After trying numerous swimsuits and tankinis (I am not a bikini fan, love them but don't have the body for them), my new favourite is the Ruffle Leaf Print Swimsuit. Initially I was sceptical about the colour as the majority of the white swimsuits I had or tried can be see through when in the water, but this one has not only the tummy control, but also extra cover for the front. You can wear it in couple of ways and the flower details are as beautiful as they are in the picture.
Is anyone else finding it hard to get Avon clothing to fit. The current sizes are restricting some of my customers, I thing it would be better to have 16, 18, 20 as the current 18/20 are too big and the smaller size too small! Also get asked for larger size slipper or sock. My granddaughter is 14 and haze size 9 feet and hates. It being able to get the slippers or boots on sale. What you think?
Summer is here and what better than to add a little accessory to your summer outfit. Tabitha Webb is associated with quality and affordable high end fashion pieces, specially designed for Avon. The scarf is luxurious and presented in a gift box making the perfect present. Priced at £35 usually, it comes at a steal price in brochure 10 where it is only £15.
There have been some great products in First Look recently - as you can see I couldn’t resist getting ready for my Summer holiday’s. First I have the Avon trip to Lisbon next month then in August I have two weeks in Tenerife and a week in Scotland- I might need to stock up on Skin So Soft dry oil spray before my visit north of the border.
I wore the grey lounge dress this week when we had the beautiful weather, it’s nice and light for the hot weather we’ve been having, although it is quite short so it might not suit someone who is very tall. I teamed it up with the new Dunlop shoes, I wasn’t sure whether to buy these but I’m really glad I did, they look very sparkly in real life and they are really comfortable.
The Antler Bag is ready for me to throw in my hand luggage essentials as I come across them and it even fits on the back of my suitcase so I don’t need to carry it. It’s a great Summer colour and the perfect size for the aeroplane.
The solar charger has also been put to use (it has a usb charge option as well so it can be used all year round), it was great to give my phone a little boost of charge when I was out prospecting for new Avon Representatives to join my team.
The face mister has been stolen by my four year old, he’s found it great to keep cool in the hot weather so I’ve had to order another one of those. It’s great for a little cool spray when your out in the glorious weather.
Not forgetting the sun tan lotion, I’d stocked up ready to go on holiday but my little man has needed some for school this week, luckily I had some to hand - but Avon have an express delivery option for anyone who might have forgotten.
Have to say Im disappointed with the sizing of the jegings. Know they meant to be tight but having bought the size I am and tried them on, found they too tight around the hips. Several of my customers have also been disappointed and not been able to fit into their usual size. Has anyone else found this to be the case?
I wasn’t sure about ordering these as the small print said that the pattern could vary from the picture but I thought if Avon send me something that looks nothing like the picture then I can use their return guarantee and send it back.
I was happy with it when it arrived, it didn’t look exactly like the picture but it was similar and I like that my bag is pretty unique as everyone who orders will receive a slightly different cut of the material.
The bag is great for me as it goes over my shoulder so I have my hands free to hold my four year olds hand and two separate zipped sections so I don’t have to have my purse visible if I just want to get a baby wipe for example. It’s a lovely size for taking a few bits out for the day or for the evening on holiday - I always feel safer with a bag over my shoulder.
Unfortunately, I took the bag to use on a day out to Chessington World of Adventures with my son and towards the end of the day whilst queuing for a ride I heard my bag fall to the ground - the strap had broken so I had to carry it round as well as trying to carry my son who was exhausted by that point!
I have a replacement and so far so good, I’ve used it a few times and the strap has remained in one piece, I really like my new bag and the matching purse - the only downside is I can’t fit an Avon brochure inside 😉
I ordered this this dress for my daughter - I like to take little pressies to her when I visit - usually Avon pjs but when I saw this dress I had to order it for her.
To start with it is slightly misleading to call it a Maxi Dress- to my mind a Maxi is floor length and this is below the knee - what I would call a midi style. However it is very obvious from the brochure picture what length this dress is.
When I first opened it I was impressed with the quality of the fabric - it is a stretchy jersey material and because of the polyester content it does not crease which is great for packing for holidays.
The colours are beautiful and the little details make this a lovely dress eg little peephole detailing at the sleeves and navy plaited leather look belt.
I think this is a great dress for the price, it looks much better in “the flesh” than in the brochure, the quality and look of this item is fantastic... I may need to order one in a bigger size for myself!!
