The holidays (and the representative discount) brought me back to AVON!!

You know, there is something to be said about the holiday season, it's one of the most joyest, thought provoking parts of the year. We show our gratitude and thankfulness for our loved ones and the things that  make our lives special, we celebrate the birth of Jesus with family and friends who have become family, and we reflect on the past year as we bring in another trip around the sun.

I absolutely love the holidays!! And I would be remissed if I did not mention that a big part of the holidays consist of gift-giving and shopping. While I am not a fan of extreme consumerism and people spending what they don't have or going into debt for the latest and greatest merchandise, sensible gift giving does the heart good! I do enjoy the look on a baby girls face when she gets a new doll, the expression of joy when a family can get a much needed furniture item for half the price to make their family time that much more intimate, and perhaps my favorite, price slashing on professional classes and products to help me run my business more efficiently. Being able to purchase items at an extreme discount and give gifts to those who could use a show of love, gratitude, and compassion, always makes me a happy girl.

That bring me to the point of this blog post............

As the holiday season started and I began to make my list of my gifting goodies, I also had to decide on the best way to budget my funds. I could not help but to notice that without using my AVON representative discount, those pennies did not stretch as much as they had in years past.

You see, I put my AVON business on hold this year for a few months while I worked harder at my part of the family business. While I don't regret m decision and we saw great growth with our family-owned transportation company, I longed to play in the world of colorful Make-Up, pleasantly scented Bath Products, the cutest Housewares ever, and Dresses & Shoes that made me feel like a confident, cute diva. I missed shopping at my AVON store personally, but more  importantly, I missed servicing my customers. So you know what happened next.............


I CAME BACK TO AVON!!!!

YYYIIIIPPPPEEEEEEE!!!!!

Plant-Based Eating Plan - Meal Prep (11/19) - 1 Week Trial

Hey Corner Clique!!

So it's mid November and while Thanksgiving and Christmas are still approaching, I have my eyes set on another upcoming holiday....... New Years Eve!!


Living away from my family means that there are some years when I am unable to go home for the holidays. This usually happens especially if it's the holiday season before our big family reunions, which happen every three years. This coming summer, we will be headed to Sacramento, California for our big gathering!!

I guess that brings me to my why..... I hope this doesn't sound shallow but..... I really want to wear (and look good in) a sequin dress for New Years Eve. Not just this year, but year after year, after year, after year, after year..............................Let's be real, sequin can be very unforgiving, it's just not one of those fabrics that everyone loves. But it can be so beautiful and festive during this time of year. Sequin makes me happy!! :-) Therefore, I'm going to work ha…

Perfect Music In My Shower.... And Its Not My Own Singing LOL

I could not have been more excited to receive this package in the mail today!! It finally came..... My AncordWorks Bluetooth shower speaker in Army Green. And while I'm not the easiest critic on new technology because I've tried some duds in my day, I could wait to rip open the Amazon box on this little ray of sunshine. It didn't disappoint!!

I had been considering purchasing a BlueTooth speaker for quite some time but there are so many on the market these days that I had a hard time narrowing down my choices. I considered a "Beats By Dre" brand but ultimately, I just don't believe the hype about them. I think they are too expensive and are mostly recommended based on the celebrity fan fare associated with Dr. Dre and the brand. While I am, of course, a fan of Dre, I wasn't about to drop over $100+ bucks for a simple speaker, especially considering I probably wouldn't use it daily.

As you can see, I've been living in the stone age using this ancie…

BUSINESS REVIEW: Panera Bread, Greenville, SC (Haywood Mall)

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I had the very best experience today at Panera Bread at Haywood Mall in Greenville, SC. Managers Marc, Susie, and Keith and the rest of the staff made it very hard for any other Panera to impress me more than they did today!! I am officially #TeamStore654
Panera also has this new "Fast Lane" and "Rapid Pick Up" system that makes the experience super convenient and easy! Who doesn't LOVE easy? With the fast lane, you walk in and order from a Kiosk (read: ipad) and everything is right there in words and pictures for you to select. With the "Rapid Pick Up," everyone with a mobile device essentially becomes a cash register. You order through your phone and when you arrive to the store, your order is waiting for you in the "Rapid Pick Up" section. Easy Breezy!


THE GOOD: ~ Free Cookie for using the Kiosk - This might only be for a limited time but every time I used the kiosk today, they gave me a free cookie! No explanation neede…
