Avon Anniversary

I received an e-mail the other day informing that it was my one year anniversary selling Avon! So, in honour of that, I decided to blog an Avon haul!

I got this purple leaf pillow cover.  I have to say, they look way better than what the cushions looked like before.  They were old looking, gold corduroy pillows!

I think this Penguin Wreath Holder is just the cutest thing ever!  I can't wait to decorate for Christmas!

I have to be honest about these candle holders.  I do like them, but I was expecting them to be a lot bigger!  Sometimes I don't look at the measurements and that's something you really have to do when ordering from Avon.

I needed a mirror to do my make up in and I love the look of this one.  I broke the last two smaller mirrors I owned, so hopefully the same doesn't happen to this one.  I'm so clumsy!

(Ignore the mess in the background :P)  This is a recipe book stand, and I love it!  It sort of matches the paper towel holder I already own, and I really wanted something similar to this for my cook books!  I loove cooking, so this will come in handy.

This is it in use:

Anyway, that is all for now!  Hope you enjoyed :)

August Glossybox

Last week my August Glossybox came in!

1. Sebastian Potion 9 Lite - $20.95/150 ml
I'm actually not quite sure how you use this stuff.  I searched it and found a lot of mixed reviews with people using it different ways. I guess I'll just have to try it and see what happens.

2. Biore Make-up Removing Towelettes - $14.99/60
I've recently become a huge fan of make-up removing towelettes!  I bought a container of Balea towelettes from Shoppers not too long ago, but I think I like these Biore ones a bit more.

3. Kryolan For Glossybox - Special Edition: For Glossybox Members only (Full Size)
I got this in the colour "Glossy Pink." not sure if everybody got the same colour or not. I actually loved this and I wore it out last night.  I got home late and was way too tired to wash my make-up off, and it was still on when I woke up this morning and washed it off!  That's probably the longest time I've had my lipstick stay on.

4. Kryolan Classic Lipstick - $16.99/4 g (Full Size)
I got this one in a red colour.  The number for this colour is "LC101."  I don't often wear red lipstick, so I don't know when I'll ever try this out.

5. Befine Fine Food Skin Care - $24-$30/50-150 ml
I haven't tried any of these yet, but the company also sent a coupon for 20% off Introductory Order.  I'm definitely going to try it out and check out the website.  I'm always looking for new skin care products!

6. Trend Trunk Mystery Gift Card - Range from $5-$250
This is how it is described:  "A trusted social marketplace to buy, sell and donate your amazing new and pre-loved fashion in a fun, simple, and social way!  On Trend Trunk you can also share your style, lust items, ask your friends for advice, and follow fellow trendsetters and tastemakers.  We hope you'll love Trend Trunk as much as we do - so have fun and explore!"
My gift card had a value of $5. I haven't spent much time on the website yet, but the idea of it seems alright.

7. Elastoplast SOS Blister - $5.99/5 units

Thanks for reading!

New books!

I ordered things off the Chapters website not too long ago, and they came in last week.  It's mostly gifts, but I did get myself one book.  I'm not very pleased with the way Chapters packages their products, because this is the second time I've gotten damaged things from them.  Unfortunately I don't have time to return them, so hopefully the people I give them to aren't too unhappy with it.

Those books, and the gloworm, is what I got my Godson for his first birthday!  I didn't know what to get him, I don't have a child and I have no clue about 1 year olds.  So I was told that books are a good choice.  I loved my gloworm when I was a kid, so I thought that would be nice too!

I got this Marilyn book for my friend for her birthday.  This is the one that was damaged, as you can probably see from the picture on the right.  I'm not too happy, but there's not much I can do about it.  Maybe she can return it as a gift?

And finally, this is the book I got for myself!  Dale Jarvis runs the Haunted Hike here in Newfoundland.  I'm really into to creepy stuff like this, so I can't wait to read this!  He has other books that I'll eventually buy too, but I'm starting with this one.

I have a serious problem with buying books.  I have a long list of books I want to own, and an even longer list of books to read.  There's not enough time in the day!  Thanks for reading. :)
