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!!
Hi Beauty Connects!
How C-U-T-E are these new Royal Flamingo PJs , the latest addition to the Dream More collection?
The 100% cotton jogger- style bottoms are comfortable yet flattering and feature a pretty flamingo print.
My favourite thing about the set is the T-shirt style top with it's huge flamingo design of the front.
With the Dream More collection, you're guaranteed a unique print/ design, a comfortable fit and high cotton content all at affordable prices. The PJs are currently just £13.95!
To complete the look, why not treat yourself to the Flamingo Slippers ? The pretty, pink slippers feature a gorgeous flamingo in a faux leather design.
Shop now !
Oops, I did it again – another set of Avon PJ’s, only my second pair but I’m sure there will be more.
Flamingo designs and patterns are everywhere at the moment, so when I saw the Royal Flamingo PJ’s in the First Look book I snapped them up straight away. How cute are they with the miniature birds on the bottoms and a large regal bird rocking her metallic gold crown on the top.
The top is quite long, great for me as I have a long body. With a piped neckline and cuffed short sleeves for a smart finish.
The jogger style bottoms are slightly baggy with cuffed ankles, they are roomy and not tight fitting like leggings. I love the assortment of mini flamingos on the bottoms, and there are matching pink fluffy slippers too!
I’m 5’ 6” and wearing size 14/16 and in my opinion are true to size.
Made from 100% cotton, they are very comfortable, I feel a right royal bird wearing them!
Oops, I did it again a second time, will I make it a third…..I already have!

I bought this beautiful ring for my eldest daughter for her 18th birthday. I hope she will love it as it is so pretty.
The ring is sterling silver with rhodium plating and a total 0.1cts diamonds. It has a lovely engraving inside the band saying 'Always & Forever'.
I have the bracelet which I have saved from Christmas and next I will get the earings to match. That way, she has a very special set for her birthday.
This would make a lovely gift for a special someone.
Spoiler (Highlight to read) I ordered this for my youngest daughter's birthday as one of her presents,now both my daughter's do the Avon with me Katie was at home with it been Easter so she carried the Avon through and started sorting it out straight away,the first box she opened was this bag oh look how pretty this is she said to me,Ill not tell you what I said under my breath lol,oh tinas ordered that and took it straight from her and started sorting tinas order out and put the bag in then took it out later on,her birthday was five days after and needless to say she loves it,it is a very pretty looking bag which can fit a large purse in and other items it's quite a deep bag as well with a very strong and sturdy strapstrap it also has a small compartment on the front of the bag which you could keep keys etc in which has a zip on,I was looking at the Cathrine Lansfie!d weekends bag as well but after scrutinizing the size it looked against the model I decided it wouldn't be big enough but the cross shoulder bag I can highly recommend .

I've had my eye on the Nellie Elements Bracelets for some time, and when they appeared in the clearance section of last month's First Look, I decided to get one before they'd gone.
The Nellie bracelets represent the four astrology elements, Fire (red), Air (clear), Water (blue) and Earth (green).
I chose Air (clear), even though I'm Sagittarius which is Fire, each bracelet has a heart-shaped charm with the element engraved on it, but it's only on one side so if it really bothered you, you could reverse it.
The Nellie Air Bracelet has 31 faceted beads, initially I thought they were a mix of clear and silver, however, they are actually all the same, one half of the bead is clear, the other is silver. As they spin on the stretchy cord you get a mix of the silver and clear. I guess the silver helps the clear side sparkle from it's reflection.
It teams fabulously with my silver jewellery and Coveted Blouse from Avon. I'm so pleased I got it, a nice little gift to me. Do you have any of the Nellie Bracelets?

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!

I Love This Collection and have also reviewed the Handbag already but have now added the Cosmetic Bag, Keyring and Scarf to my Collection !! They are so lovely and I am looking forward to using the Handbag !! I'm hoping they are going to bring out a purse to match !! @leighmavon aare you able to find out if they will be bringing out a purse to match ?
The Cosmetic Bag is a lovely size and is a very durable vinyl material with pink lining, The Keyring is another lovely addition to the collection and is quite weighty, then we have the Scarf which is just beautiful and my photo doesn't do it justice !!
We had the tiniest amount of snow last night but it is oh so cold! I ordered the Lipsy Hoody from brochure 5 2018 (available in the first look to order in c3 for Avon Reps) and as it’s cold outside I just want to stay warm and cosy inside so I have a black pair of leggings and my new Lipsy Hoody.
The Hoody is soft and feels nice and cosy to wear. I went for a 10/12 and I’d say it’s true to size as I’m probably in between a ten and a twelve. Some of the jumpers I’ve had from Avon have had tight sleeves - or I’ve got fat arms! This Hoody went on easily and the sleeves push up easily to do the washing up.
The Hoody is pink with blue sparkly text saying Lipsy London, I’m comfortable wearing it as I’m sure teenagers and girls in their twenties would be, I don’t feel too young, just cosy for lazing around the house in between Christmas and New Year.
Hi every1 I'm just wanting to no if any1 nos if there is a purse coming out to match the Tabitha Webb cream bag with the pink lining. I have the bag and I'm lookin the purse to go with it. I no they would usually come out near enough together. Thanks in advance 😁

I love the Tabitha Webb products that Avon have introduced to their Designer ranges... but in particular, the scarves. The lovely silk material, the gorgeous eye catching designs and the beautiful way they are presented in matching boxes, all add to the feeling of having a little bit of luxury.
Now these are not the usual big scarves that we all collect, wrap around our necks and wear every season- don’t get me wrong I love these scarves too but the Tabitha Webb Scarves are a bit “daintier “. The beautiful silk material makes them softer and less bulky and they are smaller in size - not so much modern celeb snapped shopping but more Grace Kelly photographed in Monte Carlo!!
The first two scarves were a long, narrow shape and I particularly love my blue one - it looks gorgeous with jeans.
But now there is a new Tabitha Webb Scarf available- the Selous Silk Scarf.
The first thing that catches the eye is the striking Zebra print - by that I mean actually Zebras not Zebra skin print!!
The colours are lovely too - pastel pink, minty green and black - this designer always has lovely colour ways. The shape of this scarf is different from the previous two - this is a square shaped scarf - very 1950s!! So I will be making it into a triangle and tying it round my neck like a 50s film star - I even managed to get a pink Jaeger jumper in an outlet store to match! Bring on the black pencil skirt and winkle pickers!!
As usual it comes in a lovely box so if you can bear to part with it it would make a lovely present - or you could just keep it and collect all the Selous range ... cosmetic bag, handbag charm etc etc
Now I just need to find out what Selous means 😉
You read that right^^, I managed to get my hands on the gorgeous Disney The Little Mermaid PJs!
I think I'm in love! The bright aqua T- shirt top takes lounging to the next level- slightly oversized for extra comfort! The bottoms are a flattering fitted legging style with a pretty purple 'scale' print. I love the sassy slogan of 'Mermaid Off Duty'. I can picture myself lazing around in these on a Sunday afternoon indulging in a Netflix series!
The top is made from 100% cotton so is super soft and comfortable. The bottoms are 95% cotton and 5% elastane.
The Little Mermaid has to be one of my favourite Disney films so I was so pleased to see the PJs in Brochure 7 (available online from 22nd March). What's you;r favourite Disney film?
OH! MY! GOD! I think I'm in love!! If you haven't seen or tried this yet, get one as soon as you can. I wasn't sure but I thought I'd give it a go...and I love it : ).
It feels like the softest leather (but of course it's not), it fits well and I've had loads of compliments. Put it this way, when I took it out of the bag my daughter just said OOOOH and was wearing it before I had the chance to try it on!! 2 sizes too big didn't bother her she wanted it. I wear it all the time and it's money very well spent.

I always have my Avon Lipsticks(epic, matte and 3d plumping) in my bag. Even I'm in a rush and can't put make up on, a simple lipstick will brighten up my face. 😍 This purse is perfect to keep all my avon cosmetics tidy. Esp with all the other baby stuff I always have to carry.
