Hi there, how are you?! Thanks so much for reading my blog and as always I love hearing from you so please do post a comment below and I reply to them all!
What a wonderful couple of weeks it's been since our Breast Cancer Care event!! Firstly there was the huge Yankee Candle Christmas shows – what did you think of the TSV and did you buy any of the other collections? I treated myself to the USA Christmas Collection and as you can see from the photo, when it arrived it was smiles all round from me, I love it, especially Peppermint Bark – I am going to ask the buyers if we can get set of 3 of that and sell it all year round, haha!
What do you think of this crazy weather? I do hope you stayed safe and sound in the storms? London was fairly untouched from major damage but you can see the picture of the felled tree in my local park, what a shame to lose such a beautiful old tree. Then the following day we had glorious blue skies as you can see in the other photo, crazy isn't it!?
Did you do anything for Halloween? I was out in town catching up with friends from Ibiza that night and everyone was dressed up. I didn't dress up as I don't really like the scary stuff and also traditionally it was a festival of light so I guess I am a bit of traditionalist. However, look at what my nieces got up to, you can see Jasmine on the left as a scary Halloween doll, she is only 10 but I have warned my sister to be aware of what she's going to be like when she discovers make-up! And my baby niece Ruby in the middle as a pumpkin….. soooo cute!! I miss them both so much.
It was great to be part of Saturday Night Gifts with my colleague and dear friend Debbie Flint this week, we have such a giggle and in the picture you can see us trying out Paul Wayne Gregory chocolates, yummy!!
Are you looking forward to the Big Elemis Christmas TSV? How many did you buy last year? I am not telling you how many I bought but needless to say most birthdays this year for friends have been Elemis pressies!! There is a men's kit that will run alongside the main TSV that day and I recently spoke to Will Gowing about it, have a look at the video, could be a guy ticked off your present list?
Talking of beauty. What did you think of Beauty Day? I always enjoy watching it and this time I also go to be part of it. Alison Young was poorly so I (very happily) covered her shows and had a blast. The highlight was working with Adele O'Donaghue who I just adore and we had a really busy SBC show, do you like this range? Here is another video where Adele says something rather funny and we have a giggle!

Looking ahead – the next big event I am involved in is HOME DAY on QVC. That will be on 13th November and I will tell you more in my next blog but Kelly Hoppen will be bringing the TSV so you know it's going to be a great day!!
Finally, I am going to take a rest from the 3 THINGS.. is there anything in particular you would like to see at the end of each blog? I was thinking perhaps of a little poem each time that I would write for you and you could post yours too if you wanted? Or, perhaps a funny pic behind the scenes at QVC, what do you think?
For the moment, it's cheerio, stay in touch by posting below and hope to hear from you soon.
