School’s out for summer


I remember the feeling well of finishing school for a whole six weeks.  Six weeks of fun and freedom, family and friends.  And of course a holiday or two!

But now I’m a parent, I have the added cost of nursery fees increasing for the summer as well as planning lots of fun activities for the little man before he starts school nursery in September- or big boy school as he refers.

We made the most of the last cheap holidays until the little man turns 18 by having a trip to Spain earlier in the year and a family holiday in Tenerife a couple of weeks ago – a great place, lovely and relaxing but now it feels like summer is over before it has begun!

I’m working building my business and I found three lovely ladies to join my team of Avon representatives today and hopefully we will have some sunshine for them to get out and deliver their brochure whilst the little ones get some fresh air – the perfect job for the summer, earn some extra pennies for day trips whilst getting the little ones involved in the fresh air as well.

We are off to Windsor tomorrow ready for a trip to Legoland on Friday followed by Alton Towers next week – or should I say CBeebies Land.  Then I’m struggling for ideas, hopefully we’ll have some nice weather for some trips to the park.  Oh and my little sisters wedding in August.

Please feel free to comment with any suggestions for summer days out.

Anew Reversalist Infinite Effects Night Treatment Cream

Avon are launching their first rotational anti-wrinkle night cream.  It will be available to buy online from Friday 25th August 2017 at




I’m really excited about this not only because Avon did their first every year long trial so we know this actually works on real people but because it makes sense!  You find a great product and you see great results – it works for you and your skin and you feel amazing, but after a while you get used to the product and the effect it has reduces but with the rotational product it essentially has two products so your skin never gets too used to one cream.  The first side is to replenish and repair your skin which you use for a week, then you move to the opposite side which repairs the look of wrinkles.  You then alternate between the two a week for each thus your skin never adapts to one formula.

Its a bit like the 5 – 2 diets you see, you don’t diet for the whole seven days you give your body a shock by eating something different so it works more effectively when you return to the healthy foods, it’s the same theory with your skin – don’t let it adapt.

I’m so excited by this I can’t wait for it to be on sale, and what is even better is for the launch price of just £25 you also get a free gift containing an Anew Reversalist Day Cream (50ml), an extra lasting lipstick in fiery red, a Mesmerize black for her EDT purse spray (10ml) and an Anew vanity case.  You have to try it!

Need a new handbag?

Probably a silly question to ask the girl who loves shoes and handbags.


Yes I’m her if you hadn’t guessed, I just can’t resist a beautiful pair of shoes or a nice new handbag.

And Avon haven’t disappointed with this lovely new bag designed by Lipsy.  It’s spacious, sturdy and a great colour.  Neutral bags go with anything so there’s no need to change handbag if you change your mind on the outfit.

The bag is perfect for an Avon lady because it has plenty of space for brochures as well as life’s essentials, mainly things like baby wipes and fruit shoot in my case having a toddler in tow.

I will be adding this bag to my collection, if only someone could come up with a better storage solution or a lottery win so I can have a room just for handbags.  A girl can dream!

Holiday Nails


I’m off to Tenerife at the weekend so I’ve had my nails done today.  I went for the new Mark Nail Style Studio Enamel in Electric Dancer.

It’s a lovely bright pink shade, perfect for a week in the sunshine.

I had two coats followed by a top coat and some Swarovski crystals.  It went on nicely and dried nice and quickly.

I can’t wait to get myself by the pool so I can get myself a tan to go with my new nails.

Give me light

If anyone has a toddler you may be able to relate, my little boy was in bed, it was night time, dark and he was sleepy.

All of a sudden I hear full on tears, what’s gone on?  I go up to him and his lightbulb has gone! End of the world!

So I shout my other half to grab a new bulb, there in the shed he says.  I have no idea why he’s moved the spare lightbulbs to the shed but off he goes.

Then I realise I had a colour changing mood lamp in my box of Avon goodies.  So  in I go with it to the little one’s bedroom and all of a sudden the Gruffalo is no longer going to come and eat him and we have “super cool light”

The little one loves it, it has stars or flowers and they Project onto the ceiling.  You can also choose whether to have a white projection or colour changing.  The latter feels nice and calming.  The lamp will be a permanent fixture in my little boys bedroom.

Thanks Avon!
