We celebrated the first day of school – by not going

The first day of school…that happy time for parents who had the kids home all summer; for children wanting to get back and meet up with their friends; for days of learning and doing well.  And so, this year it was on a Wednesday and it was a beautiful day, hot but no rain.  So everyone was excited to go.  Except me.  I didnt go…instead I went to breakfast with friends…

How lucky are you?

Most of us play the Lottery, some play cards or go to Vegas to do the whole gambling thing like roulette and black jack.  But how many times do you win?  Are you the lucky type of person who always wins something….whether it’s a dollar or thousands of dollars.  I know I dont even win when I enter a book giveaway.

For years my son has bought me scratch offs on Mothers Day and – well, it was fun scratching them off.  But I do keep trying…because you never know.

And so, once again, we are doing Sweepstakes on Avon.  Very easy – just enter – nothing to buy – but you get the chance to win such great hydration products for your skin…..

 

Enter to win! 10 people will be chosen to receive an entire set of the brand NEW Anew Hydra Fusion skincare line. https://sweeps.youravon.com/ashapiro/stay-hydrated

 

 

 

 

So Sorry You Missed It

Yes, it has ended – As of August 20th you no longer can get it.  I am so sorry but I have been posting for the past two weeks hoping everyone would see it.  I did have three people who did and acted on it  They are very happy about it.  Actually someone asked about it this morning and I had to tell them that it is over……but

Plans change…and then

Have you ever had your day/week planned out.  I am a planner, I use a planner.  Besides the calendar in my phone, I keep a physical planner for my everyday life and my business.  And each moment is filled with something I must do, or see, or buy or deliver.  And so my week starts off with a visit from the grandkids, wanting to sleep over…so laundry that was planned does not get done.  I also planned to deliver an Avon order to a customer tonight. But alas those plans were changed because I could not install the thermostat I bought (you know the ones that I can control with a cell phone).

I waited for the tech to install it and in the process he blew out a fuse in my HVAC system.  So the plans I had tomorrow morning to go to my Weight Watchers meeting, will have to be changed as the HVAC tech will be here at the same time.  Maybe I will go later in the day or push it to Wednesday.  Was also planning to visit my son tomorrow night but he got a viral infection and with hubby’s resistance we could not chance a visit.

I still have to go shopping for the block party coming up on Saturday and trying to figure out when to fit that in.  Thursday is doctor day for hubby and I also have to take my grandson to his golf lesson.  Somewhere in between all this I will be delivering Avon brochures to old customers and new customers in the neighborhood.

I guess it is true what they say – Man makes plans and G-d laughs.  But this is minor compared other people’s  life changes and so it is all fixable or changeable.  And that is why pencils have erasers….

Stop Faking It

The thing about beauty is it’s fleeting.  We start out as a cute baby (most of us anyway) and grow into a cute toddler, and then by the teenage years we are experimenting with beauty and colors and accessories.  Our 20s and 30s find us trying to stay in those decades because inevitably we find ourselves pushing 40….and by 50 we are wondering what happened.

Some of us accept what we are and look like, content in that fact that at our age who are we kidding.  We would need a lot more makeup to get back to looking like 20.  Or you can go the other way, surgery is always a option, although I am not one to go that way.  And so we find what we were doing for our skin in our 20s has a way of catching up to us.

But if you turn on the TV today, you will find all kinds of skin care products telling us they will get rid of those wrinkles, make your lips fuller, lashes longer and skin smoother.  But are you willing to send hundreds of dollars to do that?  I always believed that starting to take care of our skin in our 20s affords us the best possible skin later in our lives.

I have always wanted longer lashes.  The boys in my family have such long and full lashes….while us gals are piling on the mascara.  Or maybe putting on some fake eyelashes.  Or permanent eyelashes.

Well, no more – because I have found UNLIMITED LASHES… In just weeks your lashes look longer, fuller and healthier.  Avon’s unique serum, with a peptide blend and botanicals, is designed to dramatically enhance the look of your lashes….so you never have to FAKE it.

Dare to compare to prestige brands sold from $80 to $150…..you can get this serum for only $39.99 Plus get a FREE Eye Lift Pro with your purchase…..Check out my store at www.youravon.com/ashapiro 

 

I chickened out

I made it a few weeks ago.  But as each day drew near, I started getting palpitations.  I didnt want to go, nobody could make me go and I wasn’t going.  I didnt have the nerve to call and cancel.  Hubby was going too.  But he wasnt having anxiety like me.  And so the weekend came and went….and here it was Monday, the day!

I couldnt get out of bed,  I was actually starting a headache….because of my anxiety.  And so I lay there until almost 9 am….our appointment was for 11:30 am.  Couldnt see myself getting out of bed for it but did have to get up anyway…had to drive hubby there.

And so we got up, dressed, ate breakfast and proceeded into the car to make the trip.  Getting there I found absolutely no parking available.  Good excuse…so dropped off hubby in front of office and told him to tell them that I had a headache….and therefore, there was no way I could make my DENTIST APPOINTMENT today…..lol
