To Cleanse or Not To Cleanse

That is the big question right now! I desperately need to get my system back in order after the eating binges (Halloween … Thanksgiving … PLUS every day pick pick picking). And as a new Avon representative I do need to try the products in order to sell them effectively, correct?         

Enter into my life ……. Espira by Avon Ideal Cleanse

You can read more about the product information and/or purchase HERE!  In the Search area, type in Ideal Cleanse and you will be directed to the product.

Originally, I was going to wait until the New Year rolls around … but then I got to thinking – why wait? I should do this Cleanse before the next big holiday; Christmas and then New Year’s following right behind. This way I can remind myself that I did just cleanse my body so I need to be ever vigilant by eating the right stuff during the possible binge days. 

Sounds good in theory ….. (maybe I should wear post-it notes or set an alarm on my phone) …….. “”You have been Cleansed””

Instructions are included and I read them over a couple times. Three pills in the AM and 3 pills in the PM … drink tons of water. This is only for 3 days so the ideal time would be Friday – Sunday if you work outside the home I am guessing, but we will see how it does. This Cleanse can only be done every 3 months so it’s not like I can do it now and then again after the New Years. 

I will let you know how it goes ……. and please, if you would like to try the Espira Ideal Cleanse yourself, jump on over to my NEW Avon store and order some. Let’s be proactive this New Year 2019 and begin with a clean body and outlook on the future!

Cookie Christmas Tree by Avon and Me

Avon Cookie Cutters 

Being obsessed with baking creative artisan sugar cookies this past month or so, I just had to purchase this set from Avon. Labeled as Build A Tree Cookie Cutter Set and priced crazy cheap $7.99. I will have to purchase more for Gifts!!

First step to making this clever, clever creation is  baking the cookies. My tried and true recipe was the perfect size!

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 sticks butter (I use 1 butter, 1 margarine)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 teaspoons almond extract
  • 3 cups flour

Cut out all 10 stars and had extra dough so made extra stars and a few umbrellas for my tribute to Mary Poppins Returns (can not wait to see that movie)!

The Royal Icing recipes is as follows:  had plenty for both the tree and umbrellas

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons meringue powder
  • 3 Tablespoons water (add more to develop proper consistency for flooding)

Back to the Christmas Tree ………

Colored the stars in light green and outlined with white – all except the top star which I colored white and placed upside on the last top star. I added little circle sprinkles to act as ornaments. I swirled the royal icing to give the cookies a tree effect (if that makes sense) instead of a smooth finish. I let the cookies dry overnight before stacking them.

I absolutely LOVE this and it actually was super easy to do! I would say 2 of these would make a Great centerpiece for a large Christmas party!!

Officially an Avon Representative

I am excited to announce that I have once again joined Avon and will begin a new journey building my own business with a company that has been around for over 100 years! I was an Avon representative almost 20 years ago and amid life’s many twists and turns had to let my growing business go, but here I am once again returning to Avon. It really wasn’t a hard decision since I know the products are outstanding, the quality is top-notch and I do have the entrepreneur gene running through my veins.

Join Now

On-line shopping has taken off! I have to admit I do most of my shopping now on-line where even 10 years ago, I was hesitant. The new generations don’t even blink an eye when it comes to shopping, comparing and reviewing products on the internet.

Avon provides the tools, training and a Leadership program where you can achieve as much as you desire. The Avon products are Amazing … you as an Avon representative have the task of marketing a wonderful catalog of products. Plus, practically Everyone has heard of or used Avon!!

If you have a inner drive to excel in business and want to enjoy what you do every day, sign up with me and we can take this journey together! Here is a tip that I will share if you are thinking of this new venture in your life regarding your on-line presence since this may or may not be a huge part of your business (depends on how you plan to focus your selling). 

Take a good look at your social media accounts – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, your Blog, the groups you are active in and focus on Two of them. Start building them up daily, work on your profiles and photos and get yourself ready. You can build all your accounts if you wish, but the smaller focus on the two at first I believe will create a stronger foundation of connections. I am currently working on my Twitter and Pinterest accounts. Creating better photos and descriptions along with #hashtags will assist you in standing out and looking professional.

I have created a Facebook Group called Soapy Sisters for my Team where I will be sharing a whole lot more tips and suggestions for running your own Avon business. Once you sign up under me, I will invite you (remind me, if you don’t see an invite arriving shortly after signup!)

I am so excited to get started with my new Avon business … what a great holiday gift to myself!!
