Hope you’ve been enjoying the fabulous sunny weather (if indeed it has been sunny where you are, and if indeed you do enjoy sunshine!). It’s a busy, busy time at QVC, and I’m working right through the summer before taking a short break again in September. The big event of the coming week will be the fabulous Davina McCall joining us on Wednesday 8th – I can’t wait to work with her on the Morning Show that day! I mentioned this briefly in my last blog, but I have some more details now, so here you go…
Davina is bringing us two fitness DVDs – first, her 7 Minute Fit, in which she and trainer Ed Lumsden show us how to get in shape for summer with ten workouts based on the medically proven High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) technique, which is said to give maximum results in minimum time. I tried this one this week and its BRILLIANT – exhausting, but quick!
Then (and this is the QVC exclusive) there’s the 7 Minute Fit Part Two, which gives you an extra six workouts along with an easy-to-follow cookery seminar with Davina and her nutritionist Max Tomlinson. Both Ed and Max will be here with Davina so we’ll be working out in the studio and also demonstrating some easy recipes in the kitchen. It’s going to be great fun, so do join us for Wednesday’s Morning Show at 9am.
Next – Morning Style! I’ve always enjoyed watching Kathy Tayler’s regular Wednesday Morning Style show so I’m delighted to have been asked to stand in for her next week while she takes the day off for a family event. The show has a different theme every week, and mine will be all about colour blocking, colour in the form of print, and how to brighten up a dark or simple outfits with a pop of colour in the form of shoes, bags or accessories. We will also be featuring some great wardrobe basics. Fashion expert Lesley Ebbetts will be with me in the studio and our super-talented stylist Charlotte will be putting the outfits together for us. I adore fashion so I’m very much looking forward to the show – it’s at 10am on Wednesday, immediately after the Morning Show with Davina, so I’ll be doing a very quick change out of my workout gear in the two minutes or so we have between shows!
It hasn’t been all about work though – since my last blog I had the joy of joining a host of friends and colleagues to celebrate our gorgeous presenter Ali Keenan’s wedding. It was truly the most fabulous party – Ali looked STUNNING, and if you haven’t see any photos yet there have been several on the QVC Facebook page and on the @qvcuk Twitter feed. There’s also a lovely video message from Ali and Colin on Ali’s blog. I wish them a fabulous honeymoon in Italy and look forward to hearing all about it when she gets back!
That’s it for now – don’t forget you can always leave me a comment below this blog, chat to me on Twitter (@jackiekabler) and I now also have a Facebook page for my other job as a debut crime novelist. Have a fabulous week!
Love Jackie x
