AVON Ireland is no more

It’s officially two weeks ago now that AVON pulled the plug on the business in Ireland. Apparently they were losing money.
Since I stopped being a business developer last year I read the news on facebook.
I was in shock. And also a bit sad.
Not because the loss of income, because even though I officially was still a representative I didn’t do a lot of AVON work. But I still felt a loss.
I felt a loss because I had become so dependent on so many AVON products myself and I was just about to put a nice order in for myself for some products we use at home and which had run out.
The prices of the AVON products are so affordable and what I also loved about AVON shopping is that you didn’t have to leave the door to go to a drugstore or supermarket to look for products. It was so convenient.

Apparently a few business developers- for whom this still was their main income – have decided to take their teams to Oriflame.
I’m not so sure about trying that yet. But I’m interested in seeing a brochure.
If they really have similar products and prices I might at least become a customer.

Apparently here in Ireland we can still order products through the UK website and then get them shipped through Parcel motel. I had a look though and the AVON shop unfortunately doesn’t have the same offers as the brochure. So I’m not sure if I will ever do that. We’ll see.

At the moment I’m about to blow dry my hair and straighten it with a flat iron after not having done that for almost two years.
I did some research on internet through youtube and so on and realised that I needed a lot of products to moisturise and protect my hair.

So I decided to shop my cupboards and found a lot of different hair products I had purchased from AVON. Anti frizz shampoo, damage repair shampoo, mask and leave in elixir, conditioner, leave in conditioner, heat protection spray. I was thrilled.
It saves me from having to buy all those products.

Today when I got ready for work, here are the AVON products that I used.

Washed my face with Avon care 3 in 1 Cleanser, toner and moisturiser
Used AVON Solutions Lift and firm body firming scrub
Showered with Senses shower gel
Used AVON Solutions Lift and firm body firming treatment gel
Used ANEW eye cream on my eyes
Used Diamond perfume
Used AVON Cellu -sculpt rolleron my legs
Washed my hands with Senses hand wash
Used glimmerstick eyeliner, Supershock mascara and lipgloss on my face


I guess I will have to find a way to replace all those items (and others not mentioned) when they finish.

What are /were your favourite AVON products?
What other favourite brands do you use and which items would you recommend?
I’d love to hear from you so don’t forget to leave a comment below.

Watch my blog for a (probably last) AVON  giveaway.

Enjoy your day.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.
I still have a s…

What Kids Wore Wednesday; Kitty love (day 11)

Ir's Wednesday so it's time for another Kids outfit post. As I mentioned in my last What Kids Wore Wednesday post, Nevaeh really loves bunnies a lot and she loves clothes with bunnies on them. In the same way Yovannah really loves cats and clothes with cats on them. We mostly buy clothes from H & M because they have cute items of reasonable quality and low prices and we had gotten a gift card from H & M a while back so we are used to shopping there.
They happen to have a lot of cats and bunnies in their collection for some reason, so the girls could not be more pleased with shopping there. They get to pick their own clothes so when Yovannah saw this cute black skirt, she really had to have it. I love it too. It is made out of ‘leather look’ fabric and it has this cute face on it and on the top of the skirt there are two ears sticking out.
In the pictures she is wearing it with a blue/grey-ish top with a cat on it and dark grey tights with a black stripy pattern on t…
