The Life of Bon: Give oh give, Give oh give!

Give oh give, Give oh give!

I about lost it on a pack of 40 ravenous sophomores today.  I literally stamped my foot on the ground and told them they all needed to go back to fourth grade.

Not my finest moment.

But there's a HUGE test coming up on Thursday and they couldn't identify the verb in a sentence for me.  Then they claimed they didn't know what a noun was.  They just sat there, staring at me with glazed over eyes.

You understand my frustration, don't you?  Please.  Please!  Tell me it's okay to call a bunch of sixteen year olds fourth graders!

I am wondering if I'll be able to make it until summer.

Summer.
Summer.
Summer.

That gets me thinking.  With summer coming and all, we gotta get prepared around here. You know, prepared for sun, lazy days, pools, endless tan lines, and low maintenance looks.

What three things do you need for summer?

1. Light lip gloss
2. Light bronzer
3. Light eyeliner


Obviously. Every girl knows that. An easy, light look that says, "Hello! I'm ready for anything you throw at me, summer!" Oh gosh. I'm getting so excited just thinking about it.


You know what? I like the people that read this blog. And you read this blog. And because I do nice things for people that I like, I'm going to hook you up. Hook you up with the perfect summer look.  Annie is giving away a summer set- gloss, liner and bronzer- along with a bottle of bubble bath. BUBBLE BATH!!! Can life get any better? I submit that it cannot!




The makeup is absolutely perfect for summer. I simply cannot get enough of it. The bronzer is in beads, and I don't know about you, but any make up that comes in beads has already got my vote! The lip gloss is the perfect mix of color and gloss... a beautiful, light look for summer.

And the eyeliner. Oh the eyeliner. I will be wearing this stuff until the day I die. I have searched for ten years for an eyeliner that does the trick for me. I've tried liquid, lead, even eyeshadow disguised as eyeliner- nothing did what I wanted. It smudged, it didn't go on even, it made me look gothic.

Somehow Avon has had the perfect eyeliner all along, and I didn't even know about it. The liner goes on so smooth, not too thick not too thin, and it is the ideal bronze color for summer.

Whoever wins this giveaway is going to get the hook up and the ultimate look for our favorite season!




Ignore the fact that I look like a horse in these pictures and pay attention to the fact that
the make up is GORGEOUS!

Don't forget to stop on by Annie's Avon shop for a couple of pieces of summer make up necessities. It's surprisingly affordable and you'll be singing praises to my name forever!  And we all know I would love the world to sing praises to my name.

  1. They know what a verb and a noun are, they're just being lazy sods. Which is typical for 16 years old. I admire you- I would have likely said something like "Identify the verb and the noune in the sentence: You ought to be slapped." :D

  11. I would love to try the beaded bronzer! Maybe it would help me shed my pale, grad student look?

    (P.S. At this point in the school year, I'd say those kids were just being lazy! They have got to know what a noun is by now!)

  13. One of the celebrities on Celebrity Apprentice didn't know what a syllable was. I told her from my couch that my 2nd graders I student taught know what a syllable is--they've known for two years now. A grown woman not knowing a syllable...sigh. ANYWAY--I've been following Life of Bon for MONTHS now, so check that off the list. :)

  14. I would want to try the lip stain marker. My husband refuses to kiss me if I have something sticky on my lips, so I think that would be a good compromise. I also think the lip gloss would go great with the stain when I want to go out with my girl friends, am I right? I hope I win! That make-up looks awesome!

  21. I'd get some lengthening mascara-- my friend had Avon mascara once and it was ridiculously long lashes time. A little clumpy, but not if you apply it carefully.

    I'll also take some bright pink lipstick and some nude/white eyeliner....if they have that color. I've been looking for some nude/white EVERYWHERE but all the drugstores only have it in brown/black/blue/green/purple.

    Oh, and I'll take some bronzer beads too. :)

  36. I think the lip stain market is genius! Lipstick is hard to wear when you're married because let's face it, no one wants to be seen walking around with the guy wearing lipstick :)
