Christmas is coming!

Hello everyone,

I have only just realised today that Christmas is next week!! I can not believe how quick this year has gone! I think 2012 has been quite a hard year for alot of people I know, including myself too, in some ways. I still have a couple of people to buy presents for, and I still have presents I need to give out, and lots more wrapping too!

Avon wise, my sales have actually improved towards the end of this year, but I think that is due to the fact that I worked harder this year to get new customers etc. Also I have the most Avon reps in my team since I started which I am pleased about too! But still heaps of room for more!

Around now, is the time I should be putting some goals into place for next year, business wise, but with the stress of preparation for Christmas, I don’t seem to be focusing and having the self motivation at this moment in time! Is it just me, or you too?!

After Christmas (but before the new year) I shall be sitting down and getting in the mode ready with a plan, for when I go out there in the new year!

I am sure I will be more ‘christmassy’ by the end of the week, when everything is almost done. I would love to hear how everyone else’s Christmas preparation is going or how your year has been, please leave a comment in the box below!

Thanks for reading! xXx

Long time, no….post!/ Live your Dream part 2

Hello Everyone 🙂

It has been quite a long time since I wrote a new post on here! A couple of months ago, I was working 6 days a week running a coffee shop aswell as many other things, so it was all go go, but finally I can write my next post, so I will carry on with part 2 of Live your Dream….

Me and Grace was in our room at the hotel getting ready for the gala dinner, and I was soo excited! I love dressing up glam and I couldn’t wait to see what was going to be happening next. Once Grace and I got ready, Ally and Usha met us in our room and we all went down together.

When we entered the hall, there was round tables with pretty light decorations on, and there was little gift bags at every seat, lots of wine on each table, the place just looked great! Here is a picture.

All of the ladies were dressed up in gorgeous dresses and the men were in smart suits. Everyone was having a lovely time, talking to each other, having dinner, drinking wine and there was lots of entertainment too which made it extra special! Especially, as the pop star and face of Avon, Alesha Dixon was on the stage singing! Here are some pictures of our night!

Once the gala dinner had finished, there was then a party room where everyone was dancing and enjoying themselves and letting their hair down 🙂

After that, Usha and me decided to go and have some tea in the lounge area, by this time it was around 12.30am I think, and it had been a long day with a lot to take in. We then decided to call it a night.

The next day, I woke up to the alarm ringing at 5.30am *yawn*. It was a very early start and I didn’t want to miss breakfast lol, so I got up and ready, packed my things, and a little while after me, Grace was up too and we went down for breakfast. I have to say I was impressed with the choice of breakfast, I didn’t expect there to be as much as there was. I decided to go with some hot food and some fruit juice 🙂 By then, I was ready to start the day.

This was our second day, and it included lots of recognition. People won vouchers, mobiles, Ipads for their hard work. There was also a raffle where everybody in the room had a chance to win a car! That was an amazing moment for the winner! We all went home with lots of goodies and found out what was coming in the brochures in the run up to Christmas.

It was all in all a fantastic experience and I am definitely going to be attending again!
