Giveaway: A Cute Black Bag Just Like Mine!

Several weeks ago, Avon sent me a surprise box of goodies that had nothing to do with makeup. Instead, the box contained an Avon handbag that was filled with Avon jewelry.

Yes. An Avon handbag. Filled with Avon jewelry.


The makeup brand has expanded to include these items as well as women's clothing, all at very affordable prices.

And I'll admit, at first, I didn't think I'd like the jewelry. It's very inexpensive and- well- when you take it out of the box, it looks it.

However, on Oscar night I wore the necklace on a whim. And surprise, surprise. Peeping out from beneath an open collar, it looked... fabulous. I got lots of compliments on it.

And I'll be wearing it again.

What I instantly loved from the moment I saw it was the handbag. I had been needing a black bag and this one perfectly fit the bill. It's got a trendy, yet classic woven exterior and even though it's faux leather, it's ultra soft and there's no way anyone would know it was faux by looking at it. Best of all, it's only $29.99. And it totally looks like five times that. I carry it now all the time.

That's me and my bag!

So if you know an Avon representative, ask her for the Spring catalog- It's got lots of cute handbags, jewelry and clothing options. Or you can go online and check everything out for yourself here.
