All systems go!


At Errol DouglasWell what a whirlwind first few weeks at QVC. Everything from getting my hair done at Errol Douglas salon to getting my make-up stocks, it has been brilliant. Today as I type – I’ve spent 3 hours trying festive food for your delectation with Green Seasons Festive Hamper and The Real Pie Company.

I want to take this opportunity to say thanks to you all for your lovely messages of encouragement, both here on my blog page and on Twitter too (@TVMarv)

I’ll be setting up a Fan Page too where I’ll drop on some pictures, so if you’re not on Twitter you can also see those.


My first show with Michele Hope was great – hard to believe it was 3 weeks ago. She’s a joy to work with and we caught up backstage as she was deciding which of her great clothes our models were going to wear on-air.

So much has happened – I spent an evening with you all and Dale on Saturday Night Gifts which was amazing fun. That was the day of the Today’s Special Value H20 Supermop, which I got to try at home too. It’s a whizz around the house. And Phil Parker – our King of Steam was a barrel load of laughs too.

I’ve been trying some of our beauty products too in advance of working on shows. Judith Williams is such a fascinating lady. A former Opera Singer but a lady on a mission to help us all to protect our skin with some sumptuous items. I did a whole show with her last week and I made sure I had sparkly skin by using her Luxury Diamond Body Butter when 'The Hubz' and I attend the Royal Television Society Midlands Awards in Brum last week. Austen was up for an award for directing 7 cinema adverts for Bournville College.

Winter’s moving in but when we had a sunny Sunday a few weeks ago so we scrumped for apples in my Mother-in-laws garden up in the Black Country. I’m going to attempt some Apple Crumble with the haul she’s going to give me! Wish me luck – I’m not the best of cooks!

I’ve been trying some Stila make-up and bareMinerals make-up. I was really wowed by the GOLDEN DARK PSF15 Flawless Foundation and so if you’re curious about them too, or if you’re already a fan, there are more shows and a Today’s Special Value coming up in a few weeks time. #Excited
