A Giveaway!!

Guess what friends, I have a giveaway and I'm super excited about it!

As you may or may not know, I am an Avon representative.

Yoooo Hoooo, it's your A-VoooooN Laaaady! 

But let me tell you why.  I started getting interested in makeup around the 6th grade.  My Mommala (holla to the Mommala!) used to order Avon, and I would put a little on before heading to school.  I had to learn to be discreet because I didn't want her to know I was pilfering, which you know, in a way was a good thing because I learned the "natural" look.  I have asked her if she ever knew and just ignored it or never noticed, no response yet.

It's ok to admit to these things 20 years later.  Forgiveness comes easier, right Mommala?

A-nyway, I always put on just a little bit of makeup, a lil mascara maybe some blush, UNTIL. (Dun dun duuuuun)  I became a flight attendant.  While in training I got spoken to every day because my lipstick wasn't RED enough.  "Red promotes confidence" they told me.  Is this true?  Would you listen to me asking you to please fasten your seatbelt faster if I was wearing darker lipstick?  When I say I got spoken to every day I mean EVERY DAY!  It was crazy, and difficult on a girl who is not used to RED lips ya know? 

Well. I didn't go completely red those years as a flight attendant, but I did boost up the color a little bit.  Besides that, I really fell for makeup, and I fell hard friends, you hear? I loooove makeup, in particular new makeup.

This is why I started selling Avon.  And you know what surprised me?  I didn't know about all the other fun stuff they sold, like fragrances, purses, shoes, even clothes!  All my favorite things!

Back to the giveaway bit:

Avon's newest fragrance, Eternal Magic, the fragrance of none other than Zoe Saldana (I mean, who didn't love Avatar?) is coming out in April.

I just happened to get me some a month early!!  Hello! Who doesn't love to wear something exclusive?

Besides being exclusive?  It smells reeeaaally great!
"As enchanting and memorable as the woman
who wears it.  An ethereal portrait of
velvety rose and orris reveals
a sensuous trail of soft
vanilla and fluffy woods."


Who doesn't adore fluffy woods?

In fact, nothing makes me cringe like flat woods.

Oh you want to go for a walk in that forest?  The trees are a little flat dontcha think?  I mean, I think they could stand for a little fluffing.

Here's what I have to giveaway:

Full size bottles of
*Eau de toilette spray
*body lotion
*shower gel

Layering is the best way for fragrance to last, dontcha know?

To enter:
1) Be a follower
2) Leave a comment below and please tell me, do you wear one signature fragrance or do you like to switch hit depending on your mood or occasion?

I'll pick a winner at random on Monday evening!


  1. I have a collection of fragrances. I get one for my birthday and one for Christmas. I keep all of the bottles. It's the only "collection" I have and I love it!

  2. I actually used to only wear one fragrance, but now I like to change them with the seasons! In the fall and winter I usually wear a heavier, woodsy fragrance, and in spring and summer I switch to light, citrusy floral versions! It seems to work for me!

  3. Entry #1 - Just became a follower. Absolutely adore your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine as well.

  4. Entry #2 - I actually tend to wear one fragrance at a time. I got a bottle of Juicy for Christmas and accidentally broke it a few weeks later (you can reference on my blog!) and I just haven't had the money to buy a new perfume yet. So I haven't been wearing anything for about a month now. I'm hoping someone will get me some for my upcoming birthday (two weeks!) but if I won your giveaway I would't need any! It's such a great giveaway! Thanks for offering it - hope I win!! :) :)

  5. Switch hitter!!! Depends on where I'm going. Work, play it safe. Out? A little more potent!

  6. Love finding new fragrances. And I am sure your mother is a very nice person who would feel there was nothing to forgive 20 years ago.(wait a minute.... 20, how old were you 20 years ago?)

  7. Hi Kaloula!! I usually wear one fragrance, Chanel Mademoiselle.. but sometimes it depends on the mood or the weather if I will switch my scent.

  8. I absolutely LOVE the graphics on your blog, and the navigation bar makes it even better! I started blogging just a few months ago and need a serious update, but I have no idea how to do any of it! Any suggestions?
