Avon Absolute Fragrance Review

Avon Absolute Perfume with LED candles

Just in time for Mother’s Day gifts, Avon recently released their newest Fragrance and first Parfum, Absolute.  They describe it as pure as absolute love.

Leaf Vein Nails with Avon Envy & Born Pretty Store BP-L015

Born Pretty BP-L015 Stamping Plate Swatch - Avon Envy - MdU Forest

After a week of red and pink nails, I decided to switch things up with a little bit of nature.  I love the leaf vein stamping image from Born Pretty Store’s BP-L015 plate.  It looks great with leafy colours but also just as a regular image in neutral colours.  This one looks just as good with black and silver as more natural leafy colours.  The BP-L015 plate also includes some smaller images for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and mini flowers[Read more]
