Get To Know Your Avon Customers!

If you have just joined Avon you are probably just as excited as I am! I love meeting new people, talking to people and sharing amazing Avon products with them.

You may have started ordering 100+ Avon catalogs to get your name out there. Another great idea is to write an introduction letter to your customers. You can let people know if you are married, have children, are going to college, working, or whatever your heart desires. Give people a little information about yourself and why you are selling Avon. People like to buy from people they know. By sharing a little information about yourself you are helping others get to know you instead of just shoving an Avon catalog in their paper box or placing it on their door step.

At the bottom of the Avon introduction letter make sure you type your phone number, email address and Avon website address. Feel free to include a business card if you'd like or save it to hand out with the next Avon catalog.

Here is to getting to know your new customers and to a lot of Avon selling!


Get Rid of Nail Polish Bubbles

You are all set to paint your nails. Are you finding that bubbles start to form when you apply your nail polish? Or do your nails frequently peel at the tips? If either of these happen to you the nail polish that you are using is too thick. To prevent this from happening, try applying a few thin coats instead. Thin coats dry faster, last longer and give better coverage. You should also roll the bottle between your palms as opposed to shaking it before application.

As a last resort add a few drops of nail polish remover to your nail polish. This should thin out your nail polish and make for a nice and smooth application.

Bubble Bath-- Take Time Out for You

We all get caught up in the hustle and bustle of work, family and housecleaning. If you are the primary caregiver of your family you need to take time out for yourself. If you are constantly on the go and not getting enough sleep, you will find yourself weak and ill. Then what? While you recover your house gets messier, your work load piles up even higher, your family misses you and your in deeper then ever. 

Make sure you eat healthy. Get your daily dose of fruits and veggies. Take your vitamins. Get enough sleep at night. Need a nap? Sneak a cat nap in if you are able to. If you only sleep for 20 minutes you should feel fine. You will give yourself a second wind. If you sleep more than 20 minutes you will probably find yourself feeling tired and lazy. Drink as much water as you can as well. 

How can you take time out for you? Take a luxurious bubble bath with Avon's bubble bath. Choose from Vanilla Cream Bubble Bath, Fresh Peach Bubble Bath, Cucumber Melon, Lavender Dreams, White Lilly and even Sensitive Skin Bubble Bath. You'll also find Avon's bubble bath for kids. It only takes one capful of bubble bath to sooth your soul. 

All of Avon's bubble bath is dermatologically tested just for you! 

Try to make at least one night a week your time to relax. You'll look forward to that time and know there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

New Business Sign - Avon or Other Biz

Got a new business? Great! Make sure you have a sign in your front yard. At first my husband was like, "NO WAY!" He didn't want a sign in the yard as he complained it was another thing to move when he mowed the lawn.

Well, I won. I have a sign in my front yard and I get phone calls for orders. Once I get an order I usually gain a new customer as well!

Summer time is especially great to get new customers. People are out walking their dog, riding their bikes with their kids, etc. I suspect autumn will be a good time to gain new Avon customers as well.

You can order signs from Vista.com. This is the cheapest place I have found as well as other Avon Reps. I know I've blogged about this site before but the wonderful business products offered as far as quality and price cannot be beat!

I just want to offer tips for your business to get the most for your money. After all, we are here to help our customers and make money for ourselves to help our beloved family.

Avon Cookie Pans & Layer Cookies Recipe

                                                  My twins at age 9--they are 11 now

Yes, Avon carries cookie pans! There are so many new kitchen gadgets that Avon now carries. Just when you think Avon cannot add another item, they do.

Enjoy baking with your children for grandpa or grandma's birthday. The person that has everything would enjoy baked goodies as he or she probably does not have much time to bake. You and your children can spend quality time together when you bake. Think ahead. Christmas time you can save money by baking treats for the person who has everything as well as your child/children's teachers.

Our cat even liked to "help!" RIP our beloved Sami Jo.

The end result is happy bakers!

About This Recipe

"I can still remember the first time I had one of these cookies at a church picnic as a kid...MMmmm. I've loved them ever since. Easy to make and always popular. A classic!"


    • 1/2 cup butter, melted
    • 1 cup graham crackers, crushed to crumbs
    • 1 cup flaked coconut
    • 6 ounces chocolate chips ( 1 cup)
    • 6 ounces butterscotch chips
    • 1 (14 ounce) cans sweetened condensed milk ( fat free works fine)
    • 1 cup nuts


  1. Place melted butter in a 9 x 13 baking pan. Spread graham cracker crumbs over top. (I actually prefer to melt my butter in the microwave, mix in the graham cracker crumbs and then pat into the pan. It makes a more even bottom crust, I think.).
  2. Layer the coconut and chips in order given. Pour sweetened condensed milk over all. Top with nuts. DO NOT mix together.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. (Please check earlier if your oven runs hot!).

Imari Cologne Spray by Avon- Not Just for Wearing!

Imari Cologne smells divine. Put Imari on behind your ears, between your cleavage and a dab on the backs of your knees. When your honey kisses you he will get a whiff of elegance. He will keep coming back for more. 


Passionate. Opulent. Exotic.
Imari...enter its garden and surround yourself with Oriental florals blooming luxuriously. A rich fragrance with a floral bouquet enhanced with incense and musk and highlighted with hints of spice. Wear it and let passion bloom. 1.2 fl. oz.

Another idea to use with your perfume:

Spray Avon's Imari on a cotton ball. Vacuum up the cotton ball. Now vacuum your room. You will enjoy the rich fragrance throughout your home. The smell is sure to get your honey in a romantic mood. Get the candles ready! 

Skin So Soft Fusions Light & Lush Dual Softening Body Wash- AVON!

Keep your skin looking healthy. Skin So Soft Fusions Light & Lush Dual Softening Body Wash can help you achieve this. 

Light & lush gel with little beads to get rid of dead skin! It will leave you smelling lightly floral and beautiful. 6.7 fl oz.! 

Feel refreshed when you get out of the shower. Perfect after a work out, waking up in the morning or before bed. 

Other tips to keep your skin looking its best is to drink plenty of water. Your body is made up of mostly water (as we've learned in school) and drinking water will keep your skin fresh looking. 

When going out into the sun make sure you use at least a 15 SPF sunscreen. If you are a sun worshiper at least wear a hat, sunscreen on your face and sunglasses. If you have to get tan let your body tan. Females can match up their body with darker make-up. I always do this. This way I can get a tan and not prematurely age my face. I've been doing this since I was 18 years old and I am now in my upper forties. 

Lastly, and models can agree to this, get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. I know, most people don't get this luxury but sleep as much as possible to "get your beauty rest." Your skin will thank you.

Beautiful Exfoliating Bar Soap & Paraffin Treatment

Avon has done it again! Avon knows how to take care of your feet. You work hard, you shop hard and you play hard. Unfortunately your feet take a beating. Take care of your feet and your feet will take care of you.

Use the Beautiful Exfoliating Bar Soap on your feet with walnut shells in it to scrape away dead skin.

After you get out of the shower or bath make sure you put paraffin on your feet. Avon’s paraffin will help keep your feet as soft as possible during the harsh winter months. I personally have diabetes and love all of Avon’s lotions and items to take care of one’s feet. My doctor always compliments me on how soft my feet are and I have no cracks in my feet. Cracks in a diabetics feet are not good at all as that is one way bacteria can enter the feet and cause big time problems. (For this I highly recommend Foot Works Cracked Heel Cream- I know other diabetics that agree!)

Even if you do not have health problems, take care of your feet and keep them looking sexy!

Smooths with pumice, walnut shells and tea tree oil. 4.2 oz. net wt.

Non-greasy formula delivers moisture for soft, touchable feet. Enriched with macadamia nut oil, vitamin E and aloe. 5 fl. oz.

Three Steps to Soft Feet:
  • Apply a thick layer of lotion to your feet
  • Wrap your feet in a hot towel for 3-5 minutes
  • Wipe off to reveal soft, moisturized feet
You can purchase this set here or from my Avon page: 

Girl’s Night Out Spa Party!

Looking for a fun way to spend time with the girls? Have an Avon spa party! You can order lotion, sprays and nail polish from Avon. I have about five of the blow up plastic foot tubs in my closet. Since I sell Avon I have a few different Avon foot lotions, sprays, masks, etc.

I am going to invite my girlfriends over for a spa party. Of course my girls will be greeted at the door with a glass of wine. Beer or soda for those that don’t care for wine. I’ll have Wildtree beer bread, dipping oils and other fun snacks to munch on while we pamper our feet.

We can all soak our feet in warm water with an Avon’s foot soak treatment of our choice. The lavender foot soak is quite divine. I have Foot Works masks to treat our forty-something feet. Next we can all rinse our feet and put on our favorite lotion. From Foot Works lotion for arthritis to Foot Works Intensive Callus Lotion, etc.

Next we can paint our own toenails or each others with some of Avon’s lovely nail polish. Avon’s nail polish dries in warp speed time! I was surprised at how quick it dried since it didn’t mention it is a special quick drying polish.

All in all, we have a relaxing night in catching up with each other without spending a fortune and our feet look pretty, too. If you decide to do this party, you can have extra products on hand and sell them to your friends. No pressure selling, only if your friends love the products (which they will!) and you will earn yourself some extra money at your spa party.

Avon’s Tiny Tillia Pink Baby Robe, Washcloths & Bath Baby Book

Look at this robe. Does it not scream cuteness!!? Picture your grandbaby or best friend’s new baby in this adorable pink robe. You can almost smell the freshly bathed baby with baby lotion on her.

This robe comes with matching little booties to keep baby’s feet cozy after a bath and it will get a lot of awwww’s when it is opened at a baby shower or by the new mother after her daughter is born.

If you want to you may add some soft pink baby washcloths to the gift for the new parents. You will get four soft washcloths to keep baby clean. A Tiny Tillia pink pig cloth, a pink and white checkered cloth, a Tiny Tillia bird cloth and a white and pink polka dot cloth. Add an inexpensive soft chewable bath baby book to the mix and you have yourself a precious and handy baby shower gift for someone special.


AVON Kelley Lang Tip: Oatmeal and Egg Mask

This is an all natural mask. I wanted to share this with you as it works wonderful to get rid of pimples. My husband actually gave me this recipe.

You will need:
1 egg white
¼ cup of plain oatmeal
Lemon juice optional

To prepare:
Crack the egg and put the egg white in a small bowl. You can save the yolk for baking or eat it for breakfast. Next add the oatmeal to the egg white. Mix well. Wash your face. Pat your face dry. Now gently put the oatmeal and egg mask on your face. Let the mask completely dry. Leave on your face about 30 minutes. If your face starts to itch and you cannot take it, just wash the mask off. Make sure you get all of the mask off. Pat dry with a towel. You can take a cotton ball and put a little lemon juice on it and freshen up your face.

On this day you will feel your face tightening up. Your pimples will shrink. Before you know it the pimples will have disappeared!

Match Your Deodorant with Your Perfume! Featured: Haiku

Avon’s Haiku perfume is one of my very favorites! Once you smell this divine perfume you are sure to fall in love with it, too. I have sold quite a bit of this perfume by handing out samples. If you would like a sample please send me a message.

Haiku also has shower gel, talc powder, lotion and Haiku deodorant. You can smell delicious all day long when you layer the Haiku perfume smell on your body.

Haiku smells like a soft, warm floral fragrance blooming with delicate jasmine, lilies and sparkling citrus. 

Buy the perfume and/or the entire set as a Christmas gift. Your mother, grandmother, BFF, child’s teacher and other special ladies in your life will love this thoughtful gift.


Avon Rose 3 Piece Gift Set

This particular Avon jewelry is one of my favorites. The photo does not do it justice. The Avon Rose 3 piece gift set of earrings, bracelet and necklace sparkle beautifully. Whenever I wear these matching pieces I get compliments. This jewelry really dresses up any outfit. 

Silvertone with rhinestone accents. Necklace, 16 1/2" L with 3 1/2" extender; bracelet, 7 1/4" L with 1" extender; pierced earrings, 1" L. Comes with decorative gift box.

All of Avon’s jewelry is nickel-free for those with sensitive skin & allergies to nickel.

If you love silver jewelry you will love this set. This set is also a superb choice as a gift. Christmas is fast approaching. A tip I’ve learned is to shop all year ‘round. I have been doing this for ages. When you shop all year ‘round it’s not a huge bite out of your bank account all at once. Or worse, putting all of your Christmas gifts onto your credit card. Come January you have buyer’s remorse. Not to mention your normal bills to pay.

Shop now for Christmas gifts and if you are really ambitious start wrapping the gifts! This holiday season enjoy Christmas. Get things done early. When you have your Christmas cards and gifts done early you can kick back and enjoy the festivities so much more. Say goodbye to panicking.

Avon Brown Leather Purse

Just look at all of the wonderful items Avon has to offer! I wear Avon sandals, clothing, scarves, jewelry, etc., and many times I get complimented on my attire. I definitely let people know I bought my item(s) from Avon. I often get, “I didn’t know Avon sold shoes!” It is my duty to spread the word!

Look at the gorgeous brown leather purse Avon has to offer. I do not think you can get this purse any longer. My mom already called dibs on one of the purses for one of her Christmas gifts. I have two. At this time I am selling the second brown leather purse. You can purchase it through my Yardsellr account or you can send me a message and I will send you a PayPal invoice. If you message me and pay me via PayPal you can save money and avoid Yardsellr slice fees.

This particular brown leather purse originally sold at $200. Right now you can get it on sale for $65 with free shipping. This is a great deal as shipping is $10 on an item this large and heavy.

Look sophisticated and fashionable when you carry this fine brown leather purse by Avon.


Avon Sells Baby Items: Tiny Tillia

Did you know that Avon sells baby items? This branch of Avon is called Tiny Tillia. The baby clothes, baby quilts, baby bumper pads, bibs, etc., are simply adorable. Not only are these items adorable but they add a whole new dimension in your Avon business.

Look at these sweet baby quilts that come with a matching crib bumper pad. Perhaps you want to give one of the quilts to a loved one as a gift. Perhaps you are a grandparent and will be babysitting your grandchild often. You can have fun with your own nursery in your home. By having a crib in a cute room for the new baby you will make the new parents and baby feel comfortable and like a second home.

Tiny Tillia also offers piggy banks. Start the little one saving right away with either the cute pink piggy bank or the blue dog piggy bank. As a gift you may want to start the baby off with a few coins or dollars inside of the Tiny Tillia bank.

I adore the Tiny Tillia baby line. I have bought most of the items as I sell Avon at events. If any of these items do not sell they will be for my grandchildren. I hope there is a lot of babysitting in my future.
