Avon Voice's Talent Search


NEW YORK – January 27, 2010 – Thirty seconds is all it takes to potentially make it big and gain exposure to audiences from more than 60 countries and be professionally judged by music-industry greats like Fergie, six-time Grammy award winner; legendary songwriter, Diane Warren; Natasha Bedingfield, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter; Lea Salonga, Filipina singer and actress and Russian sensation, Valeriya, among others.

Be empowered! Avon Voices is inviting people everywhere to join a worldwide movement that unites and inspires through the universal language of music. Women around the world are making their voices count by telling their stories, sharing their dreams, and showcasing their talents at www.avonvoices.com.

It’s easier than you think. Through February 13, 2011, women can sing out on a 30-second video clip from the approved song list at www.avonvoices.com and be a part of a global movement. Talented finalists of the year-long program will travel to exciting destinations such as Hong Kong, Hollywood, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Paris and Nashville. With that comes professional coaching, Avon makeovers and studio time for performance videos.

Avon Voices is the company’s first-ever global online singing talent search for women and songwriting competition for men and women in celebration of its 125th Anniversary. At the conclusion of the program, Diane Warren will be providing an anthem to be recorded by up to 10 global finalists alongside many of Avon Voices celebrity judges. The anthem will debut live at the Avon Foundation for Women Annual Awards Gala, scheduled for Fall 2011 in New York City.

This moving anthem, as well as other Avon Voices recordings, will be available for purchase in certain countries, and a percentage of your purchase will help advance the Avon Foundation for Women’s global campaign to end violence against women and girls. Find out more about music purchases at www.avonvoices.com. To date, Avon global philanthropy has raised and awarded more than $30 million directed to domestic and gender violence awareness, education, direct services and prevention programs.

Famous Dave's Moisture Tan Review


It's winter, it's cold and I'm pale! Time for a fake and bake, but minus the bake - no tanning beds for me!

I tested out Famous Dave's Moisture Tan and loved it! Despite the name that sounds like a BBQ joint (ha!) it works really well for great coverage.

It holds to it's commitment of not smelling for the first couple of hours, but then I could smell a slight self tanner. I have given up on searching for a non-scented self tanner, so this didn't bother me. Plus, it was very faint, a lot less than Jergen or Neutrogena's products.

The color fully shows in about 4 hours. It's not 'Snookie-orange' and looks like a natural tan.

I applied this tanner with both my bare hands and using the Self Tanner Application Mitt. Both worked the same, but the Mitt is a good solution if you're not careful about staining your hands.

It retails for $25.97 for 8 ounces. It's more than your average drugstore self tanner, but produces really good results.
