My Avon Story

Hi everyone!

 

I’ve always loved Avon since being a teenager.  Back in the 70’s, my next door neighbour was an Avon Rep and Avon had just launched a teen range.  She asked me to join her at an Avon Rep event which was promoting their new teen brand.  There was a raffle and I won a beige canvass bag with a rainbow strap which also surrounded the bag.  From then on, I was hooked on Avon.

 

My Aunty was also an Avon Rep and I loved helping her deliver to her customers, my niece now does the same with me!

 

In my late teens I became an Avon Rep, I had a territory of one road, I only did it for about a year as I started college and my studies took over.  I became a Rep again in the mid 80’s but only sold to friends and family, again it only lasted about a year.

 

Fast forward to the new millennium, I’ve been a nail blogger for over 5 years and LOVE all nail polish, especially Avon with my Avon background.  I discovered Avon Beauty Connects in July 2016 and I fell in love with Avon all over again.  So much so, after a lot of umming and ahhing, I took the brave step of becoming an Avon Rep once more.  I started in Jan 2017 on Campaign 4 and by the end of my first year made it to Bronze PC – I’m very chuffed with myself as I never expected that to happen.

 

My Avon nail polish collection is growing fast (hooray!) and I love sharing my nail polish swatches on ABC to show a true representation of the shades as you can’t always tell from the brochure.

 

Earlier this year I became an Avon Superstar – totally gobsmacked and highly delighted.  18 months ago I’d never heard of ABC, and now I’m a Superstar – magical things happen, if I can do it, you can too!

 

My latest Avon adventure has led me to become involved in a video promo for Avon’s Anew Ultimate Infinite Effects Night Cream.  It all happened very quickly and I haven’t stopped smiling since!

 

Here are a few of the lovely ladies I met from Avon

Great to hear about your background with Avon - it does draw you back doesn't it?
