Happy Valentine’s Day my Sweeties! Because I adore my readers so very much, I wanted to host a fun Valentine’s Day themed giveaway on behalf of myself and AVON. This fabulous Valentine’s Day Bundle was created with love and includes an assortment of sexy makeup, adorable body products and heart inspired home decor. This set of 20 products is valued at over $80 and I am giving away 2 sets of each of the following products and the winners will be announced on Valentine’s Day!
This is AVON’s newest uber FAB full-coverage conditioning lipstick and it is infused with fruit enzymes and a blend of super hydrating natural oils. It smells fruitilicious and makes your lips really moist and visibly fuller, softer and smoother. And you will be lucky enough to be among the first to try it because it is not available for purchase yet. The winners will get the top 5 lipstick shades: Mauve Allure, Make Out Red, Red Embrace, Plum Intrigue and Lovey Dovey Pink.
I am totally in love with these sexy corset-inspired eyeshadow palettes in both Forbidden (warm tones) and Bombshell (cool tones.) Aren’t they adorable and FAB?! Both of these super cute collectible palettes will be included in this giveaway.
Valentine’s Day Hand Creams (99 cents each)
These Valentine’s themed hand creams are adorbs, perfect for throwing in your purse and would make a super sweet Valentine’s Day gift for your girlfriends.

Happy New Year Beauties and Fashionistas! I’m totally ready to Rock 2013, how about you? And in my opinion, there is no better way to make a statement than with some fabulous show stopping accessories, jewelry and shoes. The right accessories can really turn an outfit from drab to fab, they can really set the tone for the night and they can instantly shift a girl’s mood. And oh yeah, if you are anything like me and over indulged just wee bit too much over the holidays and are finding your clothes just a little bit more snug than usual, you know that accessories always fit! Following is a fabulous collection of sparkle, bling, shimmer and studded accessories to really help you glam up 2013 and make an impression. Work It Girl!
I am constantly impressed with the creative and fashion forward jewelry designed by Stella & Dot. This vintage-inspired bib necklace knocked my socks off the first time I saw it-I absolutely LOVE it! This stunning necklace is made out of glass and epoxy stones set in oxidized brass and enhanced with hematite plated chains. This necklace is a statement making show stopper and every time I wear it, the compliments roll in.
Have you ever visited the Sole Society shoe shopping site? If not, I highly recommend checking it out because they have the most amazing, on trend, high quality shoes at very affordable prices. I am beyond obsessed with these uber fab studded booties from Sole Society. They are chic, edgy, a bit rock-n-roll and put a fab finishing touch on any outfit. The quality is superb (even though they are made out of faux leather) and they are super comfortable. I can’t rave about them enough!
I am totally smitten with the statement making, beautifully crafted accessories from Johnny Swain. These Swarovski crystal embellished bracelets are gorgeous and were my gift of choice this holiday season. I am kicking off the new year wearing the combo of Big Hunk O’ LOVE paired with the Little PEACE. That’s a mantra I want to emulate in 2013!
I switched my iPhone case to this fabulous blinged out peacock case this holiday season and it definitely made a festive statement. This case is even more stunning in person and I am impressed with Cellaris’ craftsmanship and attention to detail. Even more impressive it that it has held up to daily use, dropping and man handling.
Avon Celebrity Makeup Artist, Paul Innis with Haizel McIntyre
This past summer I had the distinct pleasure of meeting the lovely Haizel McIntrye at a fabulous party I hosted on behalf of AVON during BlogHer ’12 in NYC. Haizel was one of a few specially selected AVON reps who attended my party in order to share the brand and it’s wonderful products with influential bloggers. I found Haizel to be genuine, down to earth and beautiful both inside and out, and that is why I decided to interview her for this article. As you will see, your perception of the AVON brand is totally out dated and obsolete. Today’s AVON lady (now more commonly know as an AVON Representative) is modern, ambitious, entrepreneurial and a multi-tasker. With this evolution in mind, it is my pleasure to introduce you to Haizel McIntyre, a modern day AVON Lady.
Tell me a little bit about yourself: Family, Lifestyle, Hobbies, Profession
I am a mother of three. My husband and I live in NY with our children. I work full-time as a Bilingual School Social Worker and run my Avon business part-time, as I have been doing for the last four years. In general, my life is dedicated to my kids.
What is something that people might be surprised to know about you?
I’m not sure if I have any surprising qualities. Perhaps it might be a bit surprising to know that I didn’t start wearing makeup or know how to properly apply makeup until I started selling Avon.
