A family trip to Cornwall plus I try Prai and Fillerina!



I’ve just returned to work after a lovely three days in Cornwall. My mum is a big fan of the ITV drama Doc Martin (so am I, actually!) which is set in beautiful Port Isaac, so for Christmas my sister Loraine and I gave mum the gift of a few days there. We had SUCH a good time. We always laugh a lot when we’re together, but we honestly never seemed to stop on this trip. It was great fun spotting all the Doc Martin locations – here’s a picture of me and mum outside the shop used as Mrs Tishell’s pharmacy, and outside the good doctor’s house. I half expected him to come out, dog at his heels, and tell us to go away in that delightfully grumpy way of his!

We also travelled around, visiting Tintagel, Rock and Padstow too. I love being by the sea (I spent much of my childhood living not far from the coast in the west of Ireland) and the view from our hotel in Port Isaac was just stunning, even in the wild and windy weather we had while we were there. I could have sat by the window all day, just looking at it.

Anyway, back to work now! I want to say thank you for the gorgeous  comments on my last blog, where I talked about my upcoming 50th birthday. So many kind words, you are so lovely!

I also mentioned that I’m going to be trying some new anti-ageing gadgets and products in the run-up to that, and the first is the Prai ageless throat device and serum. I do love a beauty gadget and this is pretty clever. It uses something called iontophoresis technology – basically the serum and the device both have a positive charge, so they repel each other, which in practice means they constantly push against each other when they come into contact, driving the product into the skin. That sounds a bit dramatic, but all you feel is a gentle, quite soothing vibration.

I’ve been trying it for about ten days and my neck feels wonderfully smooth and I’m sure my jawline looks more defined. Definitely worth a try if your neck is a problem area. Recommended!

In my next blog I’m going to be talking about Fillerina, a home wrinkle filler kit. I was very excited about this when I first saw it at the QVC Beauty Bash in January, but then noticed it has very mixed reviews on our website, so approached it with some caution. However, after a bit of trial and error, and with a few little tweaks to the application technique I have already seen seriously good results, so much so that I’m about to re-purchase. I’ll tell you my tips for using this next time.

I hope all is good in your world. I always love to hear from you, so do get in touch, either by leaving a comment below this blog or by saying hello on Twitter (I’m @jackiekabler).

See you soon.

    Enjoyed hearing about your trip to Cornwall with your mum. Recently had great fun with my daughter when we had a couple of day trips together. Mother and daughter time is very special.

      Hi Sandra,
      Yes mother and daughter time is very special, especially when like us you don’t live in the same country (mum lives in Ireland) so don’t see each other very often. Glad you have fun with your daughter too!
      Love Jackie x

    I love Cornwall too it’s a magical place I went there every school holiday as a child staying in gwithian near hayle that has one the best beach I’ve been to in the UK. Also it’s a very large beach but never crowded and there are always alot of serious surfers who come from far and wide the last time I was there I met surfers from Hawaii South Africa Australia New Zealand Bali and Canada all in one walk along the beach at 7am with my now in doggie heaven chocolate Labrador Monty who I miss so much. Anyway I’m glad you and your mum enjoyed your visit and I hope you enjoyed a pasty and a cream tea at least once I can’t refuse it when I’m there lol!!! Have a good week Jackie xx

      Hi Marilyn,
      I don’t blame you for not wanting to leave Cornwall, if I lived there I wouldn’t want to either! And thanks so much for the kind words.
      Love Jackie x
