Limited Edition

I recently bought another hand cream. It’s not as if I dont have enough of them.  And they are everywhere.  In my car, in my bedroom, in the kitchen and living room.  I am never without creams…throw a few in my tote bags and of course, since I sell them, there is a box of them in my car.

So why would I buy another one?  Because I love to try them out so I can tell my customers about them….I try all Avon products so I can talk about them honestly.

And so, for a limited time, Avon has come out with a new collection – shea butter – and I love it….I plan to stock up on it and maybe even give it out free to some good customers who make purchases from me.  Besides the hand cream, there is bath oil, body lotion, body wash and even body butter…..it makes your skin feel like silk and is infused with the warm scent of vanilla, sandalwood and musk….check it out today.



Get off that couch

I often read of people who get depressed and turn to extreme measures to deal with it.  Some people are hoarders, some drink, some shut themselves in a house never to come out.  I have seen people who are angry at everyone and everything in their lives.  I have met people who do not have a nice thing to say about anything.  They feel the world is not their friend and cannot cope.

I think everyone has been depressed at one time or another and how you deal with it means the difference between needing therapy or not.  I know there are days I dont want to get out of bed…living in the East when the weather is bad I tend to hang around the house, no makeup on and just want to vegetate.

There is nothing wrong with that.  But is it the norm for everyday or just an occasional thing.  Thankfully I can say it is only out once in a while.  I am the type of person who needs to be outside, meeting other people and taking in the sights of the world.  But I do know people who would rather sit on the couch all day and watch tv.  How to get them out and about has not been easy especially since it is family.  You always become the bad guy in these situations.  But I will not stop and think once the weather gets nice it will be easier.  In the meantime, I sometimes want to sit around the house also.  (Although there are some things I have to do around here like cleaning out closets and laundry!)

Large Women and Clothes

It has come to that time of year where I look to get spring clothes.  I have some from last year but always need more as I tend to clean out my closet and donate a lot of clothes.  The problem is – I hate shopping.  So that only leaves the internet.  I am also limited in sizes as I am a big woman who needs the larger sizes.  Therefore I have to shop in stores like The Avenue – sometimes J.C.Penney has good clothes for me….but I am truly hooked on an online store called Fullbeauty.com where their clothes fit me like a glove.

I also love the fashion that is now Avon.  But the sizes only went up to either a 16 or sometimes an 18…so I was never able to really enjoy their clothes.  Most people think of Avon as the makeup place to go to……but now they are into fashion (shoes and sandals included) and jewelry, skin care and health and wellness (have lost a few pounds with their Hunger Block).

So now I am sitting at the table trying to figure out what to buy as everything looks great…..what do you think?

The weather outside is….

crazy…this is February in New York and we should be having snow and cold and ice.  Instead this week I opened up my doors and windows to let the beautiful weather of 75 degrees flow into my house.  I loved it but it is like waiting for the other shoe to fall.  Will we be getting colder weather with snow and ice again?  I can hope not, but who really knows…this is February.

Meantime, I will be cleaning my closet and getting reading for the spring and summer.  Where I wear pinks and pastels – on my nails and toes.  But not yet putting away those boots…
