Getting Rid of It

Split Ends.  My hair, as I get older, has become a bit dull and dry.

Having changed my shampoo and conditioner several times, I was at wits end to find something that will help my hair.

I came across a great sale on one of Avon's serums.  And decided why not....I usually buy - try a lot of Avon's makeup, skin care and fragrances, so why not their hair products.
Avon makes a Daily Shine Dry Ends Serum and they are having a special offer of buy one, get one for 99 cents.

I used it for two days - my hair is shiny and the split ends have disappeared.  Use it on wet hair or dry hair (what I do) - a drop in the palm of your hand, rub throughout your tresses.  You wont believe the difference.

Get yours now at the special price of $7.00 with the second one at 99 cents.  Item #883261

Go straight to my store to order at

Every two weeks Avon puts out a new brochure.  And I just love browsing it to see what’s new, what my customers would like and what I can order as gifts.  I love to give Avon as gifts since people sometimes are reluctant to buy when they dont know anything about the product or are not sure it is for them.
So I sometimes add a gift to a loyal customer’s order or just gift it as a “thinking of you” gift.  This campaign #15 is filled with lots of good items, some of which are very new.  There is vinyl high-shine finish and velvet matte finish with a built in primer that guarantees a smooth, even application and keeps color on lockdown.  
And just look at these beautiful colors…..Get yours now while they last…or browse the new Avon Brochure……here

Review: Honor Bound

Honor Bound Honor Bound by Brenda Novak
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am not fond of reading romance novels that are set in the 1700s. But this book surprised me and I really enjoyed reading about the adventures of Lt Treynor and Jeannette. When Jeannette is forced to marry a elderly baron in order to give him heirs, at the wedding she finds out he is impotent and plans to have his friends impregnate her.

So she runs away and hooks up with a ship going to England and there begins her adventure from trying to hide as a boy, become involved with the Lieutenant and finds herself in the middle of a war.

Great story!

Review: Allie and Bea

Allie and Bea Allie and Bea by Catherine Ryan Hyde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a heartwarming story. Bea who becomes homeless and lives in her van. Allie whose parents are arrested and she is put in a group home. Two separate lives who meet up when Allie runs away from the terrible things that happen in the home.

This unlikely couple become friends, travelling together....their adventure makes you believe in the kindness of human nature as they meet so many helpful people; and the ending will make you smile.

Love Catherine Ryan Hyde - never get tired of her books.

What are you reading?

I have stepped up my reading time.  I love it and have been finding books that I just cant put down.  All of my reviews are here on this blog or you can see my books at my favorite book place at 

The best part of my reading is my Kindle.  I have several and the sync very easily.  So if I am reading downstairs and go up to bed my nightstand Kindle will sync to where I left off downstairs.

And I also carry one with me because you never know when you will find the time to read...waiting in a doctors office, waiting in any office (and we all know we do that quite frequently).

I am always curious to find out what my friends are reading.  One reason I belong to Goodreads - I get great ideas, recommendations and find new authors to read from them.

What are reading?  Feel free to friend me on Goodreads and maybe we can discuss  a book or two?

Review: No One But You

No One But You No One But You by Brenda Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ms Novak is writing them faster than I can read them. But they are soooo good. This story is back at Silver Springs where Dawson has been let out of prison after serving one year for killing his parents and being acquitted. But the town still thinks he is guilty.

Planning to rebuild his life, and bring his sister home, he also plans to find the person who did kill his parents.

Then there is Sadie who is going through a divorce and trying to make ends meet and raise her son, Jayden. She accepts a job with Dawson to take care of his sister even though her ex-husband is a police officer who also believes Dawson is guilty. Things get hot when there are suspicious fires and happenings that cant be explained.....a page turner for sure.....

Rain Rain Go......

make my roses grow.

All the rain we had did a great job on my roses.  So now that it has stopped and the weather will be turning 92 today......I will have to make sure I go out every day and water them.  I did it last night in expectation of the hot weather today and they already look like they are drying out.

I still havent filled up my all planters with flowers but plan to do that soon.  Just isnt enough time in the day to do everything.
