Welcome to my mind. It is a confusing place in here. You will probably find love, happiness, anger, frustration, confusion, and most assuredly, incoherent thoughts. Don't expect a new post every day. I am not a "super blogger". I have things to do, not that there is a list or a plan for those things to get done! Mainly I just "fly by the seat of my pants".

Please refrain from hateful comments. If you don't like or agree with what I say, get your own blog. I have enough negative, hateful people in my life. If you enjoy it, read it. If you don't, go away.

I have many roles in life, like everyone else. I'm a wife, mom, homeschool teacher, cook, maid, meal planner, pet owner, "taxi" driver, and etc, etc, etc.

Welcome! I hope you have a good read!

New Addiction

I have a secret to confess. I have a new addiction. I'm addicted to Avon! Yes, I still have the old addiction, too. What with the nausea, I gave up the pills and started smoking again. I know! I know! Anyway, back to my new addiction...It all started when a friend of mine started selling Avon. Now, I've always liked Avon, but I really started buying it to support her. Now I'm totally hooked! I can't not shop the brochure in every campaign. I try, and I don't always buy, but I always shop the book, talking myself into and out of buying this or that. Lots of time, I just cave and succumb to purchasing. The marketing makes my eyes gloss over as if I'm in a "you must have it" trance. So, today, I am waiting on my package. I can't wait to smell my Naturals Banana and Coconut Milk Shower Gel and Body Lotion combo. Yummy! Pina Colada! Can you hear the steel drums?

So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite products from my previous purchases:

Any and every Moisture Therapy product-THE BEST lotion on the market!
Wish of Happiness perfume-light, citrusy, delicious!
Perfect Wear All-Day Comfort Lipstick SPF 12-Great moisture, good staying power and SPF!!! I have this in "Capture", after my new shipment arrives today, I will be trying the "Classic Berry".
Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream-instant lift! I'm not exactly a spring chicken anymore...well, at least not from THIS spring!
Advanced Techniques 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner-Awesome! Rinses clean, soft hair, not too much conditioner.
Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus SPF-Great protection from everything outside!
SOS Fusions Dual Softening Body Wash and Lotion-Amazing!

Avon's got a killer marketing gig, the product changing every 2 weeks, sales in every brochure, prices low enough to give you that "why not?" attitude, a personal feel from the old days of the Avon lady going door to door, and some pretty impressive products for the price (Anew gets really great reviews, for example). Also a very easy return policy that makes it easier to try products without worry. People develop a loyalty to not just the brand, but to their Avon representative. All in all, Avon struck onto a really effective way to sell.

Oooo....maybe if they have a light shade of that longlasting lipstick, I'll get some. But I sure ain't as brave as you and won't be sporting big bright berry lips. I'm too chicken! Hee hee!! I still have that Mary Kay stuff that you and the other musketeer convinced me to buy (and yes, I do still use it). I'm into mineral stuff now though, for foundation....I LOVE it!

I use and love mineral make-up, too. I have for a couple of years now. I use the Physician's Formula in the pressed compact. I don't really care for the loose stuff.
