I just want to give big hugs and kisses to the wonderful people of
Avon who delivered this pretty big tote
to me this morning. My baby cat Candy seems to be pleased too, or intrigued.
Nevertheless, the bright purple and pink vinyl bag got his attention up.
Did I say bag? It opens up to a beach mat full of goodies just in time for summer. Hello
Avon March products, you scream summer, my favorite
season! The bag alone is a goody as it’s roomy enough to fit beach essentials, big
beach towel and book included and it’s comfy enough to let you lay on the sand
as you work on your summer 2012 tan with no worries of getting sand wedged inside your bikini. It’s
even got a tiny pouch to house in small items like lip balm, alcohol, etc.
Just a reminder, in the
March 2012 collection, gray tabby cat and cat treats not included. :P
Should I fill you in on some of the goodies? Okay, let’s start off with makeup. Many ask me if I wear makeup during the summer. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t, but most of the time, I do. Although our skin gets darker, a bit of color can add a bit of sugar.
The eye quad called Smoke and Mirrors has very sheer and subtle wearable pastel shades that would look awesome as a wash of color or a sparkle here and there. This shimmery powder stays dazzling for up to 12 hours.
The Smoke and Mirrors Ultra color Rich Lipstick feels creamy and cushy to the lips. This one’s called Apricot Mystery.
It was very sheer on me, almost a gloss effect without the annoying tack, as if I ate a melon pop or something.
Remember how a cold glass of fruitshake quenches our thirst by the beach? Think fruity shakes for dehydrated skin from Avon Naturals with yummy “flavors” like Strawberry and Guava and Pomegranate and Mango combinations to quench our fried skin from a day of swimming and sun worshiping.
The best accessories with the tan? Dainty jewelry of course!
Spice Market collection, with exotic-colored stones to go with a basic white or turquoise maxi dress.
with the flowers remind me of an island princess in a cabana. Real flowers
wilt. They don’t.
I love animal prints, and this sunglass case seemed to call to me. I don’t buy expensive shades so sometimes, they don’t come with protective casing. This keeps my case protected so it helps me save money from buying and buying glasses after my shades break. Not to mention it looks super cute and really rar.
Higher temperatures call for lighter fragrance. Very potent perfumes can overwhelm during the day. If you find yourself switching to body splashes or EDTs during the summer, you’re not alone. I do the same thing myself, or sometimes I go with no fragrance at all.
Heaven Scent Splash Colognes have got the fragrance department covered with light fragrances – fruity, floral, or pure, it’s up to you. The picture reminds you of a deck of cards yes?
Since summer means whisking to getaways, and if you’re OC like me, travel organizers in loud pink colors (I like loud colors for travelling goodies because they make me see things in a flash because a sea of neutrals can render me blind because all look the same and I hate losing things when I travel) spell awesomeness to people who have high risk for obsessive-compulsive disorder like me. It separates the shoes from the slippers, keeps teensy underwear in place, and separates dirty clothes from clean clothes.
Having fun staring at them yet? Guess what? I’m feeling generous because I’m sharing my blessings with you, yes you! Because I have another contest and I’m giving away this much prizes!!!!!!!!!!!
