Don’t you just love surprises? Well I do, and I got one the other day whilst having a bit of a sort out: real photos!
Gosh they’re positively becoming antiques these days what with our iPhones, smart phones, iPads, tablets etc.
Well, my discovery was more than appropriate given it is Beauty Month here at QVC…
I found photos of a trip Alison and I took 10 years ago to the massive beauty trade fair in Bologna! We stayed in a beautiful hotel on the River Arno in Florence, not far from the famous Ponte Vecchio! Stunning! And I have to say, doesn’t our Ali look stunning too?!
You can tell from her expression that she wasn’t expecting the paparazzi in the form of Anne Dawson (although the woman behind with large bag on her shoulder doesn’t exactly look camera shy, does she? Lol!).
We had such a great trip looking at the incredible range of, not only worldwide renowned brands, but also the new and exciting ones looking to make their mark on what can only be described as a hugely competitive market.
This is of course where QVC shines; remaining, as always, ahead of the game in current trends and constantly searching for new and innovative beauty products, that will eventually find their way to your screens to be fully demonstrated and explained by all the experts.
That certainly includes our own resident beauty expert, Alison!
During that trip, I think I discovered partly why she’s so clued up, take a look at a photo of her hotel bathroom sink! In fact, I should say, take a look at a photo of half of her bathroom sink!
How many beauty products does a girl need on a three day trip? Well lots, apparently, if your name is Alison Young! I just had to take a photo, hilarious!
I do hope you are enjoying Beauty Month with us, I have some great shows coming up on Saturday including OPI‘s Summer Series show at 6pm and an hour of favourites in our Beauty Loves… hour at 10pm including Caudalie and Alpha H.
Do join me.
Lots of love to you all!
