Cant make up my mind..

This weather is playing havoc on my clothes.  Hats, no hats.  Gloves, no gloves.  Boots, no boots.  I dont mind the cold weather….although I prefer the warm.  But this ping pong of weather we are having is driving me to drink….(a glass of wine now and then!)

It’s February and now March and there is no let up on the crazy weather.  One day it hits 70s or high 60s and I tend to change my outerwear and then it plunges down to the 20s where I am upset because I didnt take that hat and the wind is hurting my ears.

So my wardrobe looks like half and half…half winter clothes and half spring clothes…just got a great pair of sandals that I want to wear so badly.  I also got a beautiful vest that will go great with them…and so today I went out with my sweater under my winter coat and my boots (forgot the hat again.)

But spring is just about 15 days away, spring baseball  is on TV (the Mets play in Florida and I envy that type of weather) and so I will wait until finally I am able to shed these winter clothes and maybe start planting my flowers and tomatoes?  A little too early just yet….


The cost of Lipstick

You bought lipstick for only $4.99?

You saw such a variety of colors?

I have just recently been using lipstick because besides keeping my lips soft,  I love to add a little color…..but I dont want to spend a lot for lipstick because, face it, I like to change colors often.

So I put in a search on Google for lipstick just to get an idea on how much I would have to spend if I wanted at least 4 different colors….the cheapest was $24 and the most expensive I found was $90.  At those prices it would cost me $96 for 4 of the cheapest; and $360 for 4 of the most expensive.  I would not spend that much on lipstick so what to do?

So I went over to Avon and have found at $4.99 x 4 – my cost would be $19.96 – now doesnt that make more sense?  Also, if you are not completely satisfied, Avon will take it back and refund your money (within 90 days!)  Do those other companies do that? Even the local pharmacies charge more than Avon….So what is your excuse for not trying Avon?

This campaign there is a variety of colors and a great price….don’t let it slip by!

And when you are done with your shower – use Senses body lotion and body spray to complete the feeling.   Right now buy two and get two free…..at my online store – www.youravon.com/ashapiro

chalchihuitl…better known as –


Out of all the stones out there….and my birthstone which I love (amethyst) turquoise comes in as one of the top ones.  It goes with everything….diamonds do too, but who can afford them…so I tend to go with turquoise for wearing casual wear and dress up.

I love it with black and dark colors but in the picture below you can see it also goes well with white.  I love the necklace more than the bracelets or earrings because it is the first thing your eye will go to.  And it makes a statement…people will ask you where you got it!

The necklace and earrings come as a set for only $19.99 – available now at my online store www.youravon.com/ashapiro

Mom said “No Makeup”

When I was young I wasn’t allowed to wear lipstick much less any other makeup.  I guess way back then you were considered a “loose” girl if you did.  So as a good daughter I listened and didn’t wear anything.  But alas I changed parochial school for a public one and yes, many girls wore makeup….but of course I couldn’t tell if they were loose or not.  So I stuck by what Mom said.  And then I graduated high school.

Those days (oops dating myself) college was not only not necessary but it was something girls just didnt attend.  So off to work it was.  A city job as a secretary – Civil Service Job I think they called it then.  I loved working and meeting new people….and then met a girl who said “Why don’t you wear makeup”?  And then it started.  She introduced me to foundation, mascaraeyeliner and my favorite, lipstick.  Don’t leave home without it.

Recently I have been trying out a Lipstick Crayon which I really love.

Comes in creams or shimmer and right now there is a great sale going on….buy one get one for half off..Check it out today at my e-store…there are 12 shades to pick from…
