Avon Update and Giveaway: Violet and Lychee


I opened a separate bank account for my Avon money.  My daughter asked why I couldn't use the account I already have.  I tried to explain I could but it's not very smart.  I'm not certain she understands.  I had about $100 worth of checks from customers and added another $500 of my own money.  That sounds like a lot until you start thinking about how many businesses you can open with a $500 investment.  It's a very short list.  Avon only requires a $10 investment to get started, but I'm trying to build mine up with a little extra.   

I now have a free debit card for my business account so if I'm shopping for business cards, rubber stamps, or paying postage it's coming out of my Avon account.  Since I was an existing Capital One customer, my first order of checks was free as well. 

There are a lot of new colors and fragrances coming up.  In the campaign 3 brochure there is a new Imari fragrance, 2 new Nailwear Pro colors (Gunmetal and Night Violet), and 4 new shades of Ultra Color Rich Lipstick (Perfect Red, Iced Cocoa, Burnished Gold, and Oxford Wine).  There is also a new Naturals scent - violet and lychee.  The new Naturals scent plus some old Naturals favorites, bubble bath, and a variety of Skin So Soft will be on sale buy 2 get 1 free or buy 3 get 2 free in campaign 3.  The current campaign brochures can always be viewed on my website.  To receive an email at the beginning of each new campaign, register at my store and subscribe to email alerts.  The link to my store is located up at the very top of my sidebar.   

I am giving away some of the new Naturals violet and lychee to one lucky winner.  Pictured above, the giveaway includes: 

One Naturals Canvas Bag
One lychee flower sponge
One hand and body lotion
One shower gel
One body spray

I have used Avon Naturals in the Lavendar scent -- which is my favorite -- but am looking forward to trying the violet.

Skin so Soft is the BEST- mosqito/bug repellent in the world. When you are Deer hunting--or maybe that should be DEAR hunting..fragrance is frowned upon--but BBQ's, Fishing, anything outdoors in the Skeeter/Bug country!!!! So men--order up!!

I have a little left...so I will probably get some--er AVON-- from you! ar ar!

I used the Avon Naturals a long time ago. I like the Cherry Blossom scent. I don't even know if they still have it though.

Hi, I haven't used Avon Naturals before. My favorite scent would probably be the Banana & Coconut Milk. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
