Retro Comebacks

This morning I saw an older lady stylishly dressed with her vintage pearl earrings, big gold rope chain, long black scarf...then I looked down to check out her shoes and almost fell over laughing - She was wearing silver L.A. Gear shoes! You go girl! Bring back those pointy silver shoes. I do have to admit that those shoes were pretty comfortable.

One thing I'd like to see come back (if it hasn't already) are Member's Only jackets. Jelly shoes and Swatch watches were fun to wear too. Can you tell I was a product of the 80's?

Avon Jewelry - Who Knew?

My first purchase as an Avon rep were these necklaces:

Not cute in the catalog, but cute on me! (And on you too, of course!) A friend of mine commented on it, so I gave one of them for her birthday. A few days later she saw the other one on and ended up buying it too.

I would've never thought to look through an Avon catalog to buy jewelry. Kudos to Avon :) And the excitement grows...

My Beauty Calling

I was never a y-girl until this past year. For the first time I put on pink nailpolish on my toes and fingernails. I was more a brown or purple for a long time. Who would've thought I'd be an Avon rep this year? If you had told me a year ago that I am going to become an Avon rep, I probably would have laughed in your face! Me? A makeup salesperson? Yeah...right! But here I am. And feeling more dazzling and radiant than ever :)

It's amazing what a little moisturizer will do! It's about that time to start really working on my beauty ritual. I have a 31st birthday around the corner and although I'm young on the inside, the outside just doesn't act like the 20-year-old it once was.
