Getting ready to be Bridesmaid

My little sister is getting married in August, and it seemed so far away but all of a sudden it’s now two months away.

The dress is sorted (for Bride and Bridesmaids), my nail varnish is sorted – super organised Avon lady here!  But my body is not Bridesmaid ready.

Today I went to the dentist for the last two of six fillings, oops too much chocolate.  And talking of chocolate that could be why my belly isn’t in great shape right now.

So today for the first time in about six months I went to the gym.  If I hadn’t paid for a year upfront then I would have most likely cancelled my membership by now but I’m glad I went.  I decided to start easy with a 30 minute cycle class, it worked up a sweat and got me back into the gym routine- now to fit in another class this week.

As an Avon lady I should be pretty active, and I did post some expired brochures in my street this morning in the hope of gaining some new Avon Representatives.  Old brochures tempt people into joining my team as they can see the amazing products Avon have to offer and want to come on board- I should do more of this as it is a great way to get more steps into my day, the weather is nice and I’m building my business.

I’m off for a soak in the bath before I pamper myself with all of my lovely Avon products.

Work Haven

IMG_2160.JPG

Last week I was lucky enough to have a week down south in Somerset.  We had a Monday to Friday break using the Sun Holiday scheme at Haven in Burnham on Sea.

The booking system is simple online, allowing you to search by date and park until you find something suitable for you. It also allows you to upgrade if you wish to.  Much easier than the postal system where it’s the luck of the draw which park you get.

We chose Haven as we have visited this particular park before and had a lovely time.  Last time we got an upgraded caravan for free so we decided to pay for an upgrade this time, although I wouldn’t bother again as the free upgrade was better than the paid for one.  No balcony this year was a bit disappointing given the beautiful weather.

The caravan itself was nice enough, although the beds were a little uncomfy.  The phone signal also wasn’t great to catch up with a bit of work but I suppose holidays aren’t for working!

We had some great weather for England last week so we were lucky we could go to the beach.  We also went to the theme park in Brean, the little one had a great time but it is small so not much for older kids, the Sooty show was brilliant though, worth a visit for that.

The swimming pool on the Haven site has a slide indoors and a toddler pool so enough to keep the little one entertained for an hour.  There is also an outdoor pool for those brave enough.

The entertainment was ok, not what it used to be when I was growing up but still good for the kids.  The Seaside Squad characters are the main attraction for my little one and he loved meeting them.  The drinks at the bar however weren’t great, very overpriced but it seems to be the norm for those sort of places which is a shame as it seemed quiet in there so perhaps drink prices had put people off.

The food onside was average quality and highly priced but we did find a lovely fish and chips shop just off Burnham high street, I think it was called British Chips.

Overall we had a great holiday, and luckily I remembered my Avon Sun tan lotion as we had the unexpected heat.  Not much work was done so I best put a bit of effort in before the next holiday.

£1 Delivery Offer

IMG_1912.PNG

Who doesn’t love an offer?  I have to say the marketing people have me hooked in as I can’t resist a bargain.

I don’t really like paying delivery charges to have a product bought to me, although I’m not one to go to the shops very often.  So I’m always on the lookout for a delivery Offer.  Avon are really good with codes for delivery offers and there is usually one every couple of weeks which is great for anyone who loves their Avon products and wants them delivered directly to their door.

The latest code is TROPICAL and that gives you delivery for just £1 with a £20 spend at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup O really don’t mind paying £1 to get my products as it would cost me more than that to drive into town and pay to park and go somewhere like Boots for my makeup, and Avon’s prices seem much more reasonable!

The other advantage with online shopping is you can see what your putting into your basket and how much it costs, so if you want to spend exactly £20 to get delivery for £1 or if you have a budget to work to you can stick to it online.

Although with Avon’s latest promotion they are declaring Summer, I hope their declaration works as I’m sitting here writing this sat inside with a nice hot cuppa watching the rain outside.

The lastest voucher code is only valid until 8th June 2017 so shop quickly to take advantage of it.

Top Avon Representatives

IMG_1869.PNG

I was surprised to see an email in my inbox this week inviting me to Avon’s head office as part of the recognition for being in the top 100 representatives in the UK.

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would achieve such great sales to get me into the top 100 in the country.  There are around 160,000 Avon Representatives in the UK so I’m ecstatic!

The invite to head office includes an evening meal, overnight stay and the chance to meet with the top staff the following day.  It also includes transport to and from head office in Northampton.

Avon really do go above and beyond to recognise its top selling Representatives.  There are meals, free products, love to shop vouchers and even a holiday.  What other company gives all of this to a self-employed workforce?

The recognition programme is called Presidents Club and to become a member you need to sell £6,500 in the year, this gets you an invite to the quarterly events. The rewards then keep on growing.

The holiday this years sales qualify for is to Lisbon in Portugal and to qualify Representatives need to sell over £40,400 in Avon products, have an increase in sales above the previous year and be one of the top 50 in the county to have done so.

At the end of brochure 9, half way through the Avon year I am at number 99 so there is still time to increase my sales and creap up the leaderboard.

I’ve been an Avon Representative for just over 11 years and I’ve always plodded along but this proves with a bit of determination anyone can increase their sales and go for the top sales.
