To The Male Populace...

Just nestled in here with kitty sleeping under my legs-- does your cat do that? She crawls underneath the duvet and sleeps under my bent knees. Sweet girl :)) I hope everyone has had a great Saturday. I just have a few thoughts before I disappear into a novel, and then to sleep...
Avon has some good buys for men. I say this because I've talked to a few of my guy friends about my business and they all kind of became pale with fear and started backing away like I'm selling used tampons or something. Lol!
Avon actually has deodorant in various fragrances for only a dollar (for men). We have many colognes, jewelry, watches, clothing, shoes. We always have new items with their favourite hockey team's logo on it.
This is what we've got goin' on in Campaign 4 for the guys:

Black Suede Eau de Toilette Spray on for half price $9.99 from $20. Sure, maybe you want to smell it first but with Avon's awesome return policy you can buy it to try it and return it if it doesn't meet your expectations.

Bonus Sized Men's Deodorant 99 cents from $1.99 Comes in all sorts of flavours!

Batman Watch on for $29.99 from $39.99

Those are just a few of the items on special for men in the Campaign 4 Avon brochure. If you would like to see what else is there, shop online by cutting and pasting this address into your browser:

When you shop online, you can shop from anywhere in Canada! The shipping fees are reasonable and delivery is fast.

So I'm off to disappear into a novel. Until we meet again!

Hands Up!

Hands up if you are the type of person who prefers to read books online, on your computer or an e-reader. There are a lot of you out there. I haven't gone as far as bought an e-reader but I have read books on my computer. For me, if there are books involved, i'm not picky!

What about those of you who can't get enough of dusty, musty, paper pages, the weight of a novel in your hand, using your favourite bookmarks...? I must admit, I personally would rather read a paperback than anything else, and so I can understand when my customers request a physical version of the avon brochure. Sure, the brochure is available online for free and you can order right there as well, but I get it folks. I get it.

Let me tell you about my dear aunties (I don't think they'd mind). At all the family gatherings, first thing in the morning they can be seen drinking coffee (let's put things in order of importance ;), putting on makeup, and going through Avon catalogs together. It's a ritual. That's something that could probably be done with a few laptops, I admit, but I'm telling you IT'S NOT THE SAME.

So if you'd like an Avon catalog to flip through over coffee with a friend, or for your own unique Avon rituals, send me an email and I will send you one or drop one off.

I get it!

P.S. Tell me about some of your Avon Rituals :)
PPS. For you die hard internetters:

Keep Calm and Order Avon...

So, we all join Avon for different reasons. Some people want a new business, some people just want a discount on Avon products for themselves, some people want a way to meet new people. Please share if you joined Avon and you have a unique reason :) I joined for all those reasons I guess, but part of the reason I joined was also so that I could have the experience of setting goals, working towards them, and hopefully, occasionally, achieving those goals.

Avon sets up incentives for their reps to keep them motivated and focused on their business. The one I'm working on right now is, if I sell $350-$1149 I will receive a 25% discount on all my personal purchases from avon for a year, and that comes off of sale prices too! Your purchases from this campaign will go toward this goal. If you would like to purchase something from me, look at Campaign 4:

and shop online anywhere in Canada. If you live in the Nanaimo area, feel free to send me an email at and I will order your items for you :)

If you would like to join Avon too, click Join Avon on the home page of that link.

Thank you for your support!

It's Almost THAT Time of Year Again...

And by THAT time of year I mean the time when couples in love go out for dinner and feed each other chocolate and annoy the rest of us with their public displays of affection. This year I will probably only be half aware of the pink holiday and spend the evening on my couch. What about you? Married to the love of your life? Escaping the holiday by going on a fabulous trip outta here? I wish. I believe there is big love in my future but at the moment it is evading me.

And so I turn to my one solace in this cruel world of pink holidays: perfume. I have a bit of an obsession. I have way more perfume (and shower gel for that matter) than any one woman could possibly need. This is the one I JUST bought and I'm waiting anxiously for it to arrive:

On sale for a few more days for $14.99 from $30!

Here are a couple more that I will probably have before the next major holiday lol

Just give me time!
So have an awesome St Valentine's Day because it isn't just for the lovers. It's about beauty and indulgence and don't we all need a little of that every once in a while?

Reward Thyself

So I'm on a diet right now, as some of you know and for the most part I feel pretty great about the changes I'm making in my life. I'm eating a bit less, losing some weight and I'm fighting those all too familiar urges to drown my sorrows in a waist high bag of chips. Most of the time I feel a lot better now that I'm not bloated all the time, now that I'm not always over eating. But sometimes life threatens to get the better of me and I reeeeeally want to jump ship from this whole dieting thing. Like last night. A lot of personal issues seemed to be converging on me and I had made the unfortunate mistake of PURCHASING some bad food. Those of you who also struggle with their weight know the temptation of the unhealthy options calling to you from the cupboard.
I made it through. I don't know how. This was actually the first really bad temptation in two weeks. I'm really trying to focus on other things that make me happy like my hobbies, my business, and a little on the other unhealthy fixations in my life lol Like shopping! People need to reward themselves for their hard work. Have a look at Campaign 4 and see if there might be something in there that will give you the energy you need to keep fighting your daily battles.

Thanks for reading,

Jacquie xoxo

Avon Bubble Bath-- Who Knew?

I just love a hot, fragrant bubble bath, almost as much as I love a clean house! With Avon you can have both using their line of bath bubbles in many different fragrances. Clean your house, then slip into a soothing hot bath :)  Here are some ideas I've come across, of different ways Avon customers are using their Avon bubble bath in their cleaning and household chores:

-car wash
-handwashing delicates
-window cleaner
-floor wash
-dish soap
-pet shampoo
-jewelry cleaner

And Avon Bubble bath is always a great price. Check out the current campaign for the deals on right now :)

Have a great week!
