I hope all’s well with everyone. It’s been a busy few days both at home and at The Q.
Firstly home. As mentioned in my last blog, Tracey and I celebrated 30 years of marriage. We kept a very low profile and didn’t go for the big party or get together, but spent a lovely few days quietly together. To be honest our timing was a bit rubbish, as we should have known 30 years ago that our future little darlings would be on their way to university around the time of our anniversary! Fortunately, they aren’t going to the same uni and their moving in weekends are a week apart – phew!
There are many things I have learnt from 30 years of marriage and one of them is that you really shouldn’t be stingy when it comes to buying a quality mattress. I’ve often said on-air that there are certain household items that we consider a bit of a grudge purchase and often a mattress is considered by many as such an item. This is daft really, as a quality mattress really can make a huge difference to the quality of one’s sleep and therefore wellbeing. But, Mrs F and I are no different – we’ve been talking about swapping our mattress for a new one for a while now, but we always seem to find a good excuse not to!
So you can imagine how chuffed I was to receive an email from our Homestyle buyers, whilst on my little anniversary break, inviting us to try out the latest Magniflex mattress that will be offered at The Q at an amazing Today’s Special Value price on Wednesday night into Thursday.
Features include four levels of support within one mattress and reduced motion transfer, meaning that Tracey and I can sleep through the night without feeling any disturbance from each other’s movements. This is particularly great for Tracey, who now might be able to remain asleep when I jump into bed at 2am after our Today’s Special Value launch!
It also has a cover which has been treated to make it Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Mould and Anti-Dust Mite by limiting bacterial, fungal and dust-mite growth. I’m sure this is the first time we have offered this treatment on a mattress. In addition, this treatment wicks away excess moisture and balances temperature through the night. This cover can be removed and dry cleaned, which should increase the life of the mattress.
Magniflex is a family run business based in Tuscany, Italy – a country renowned for premium quality manufacturing. With over 50 years of experience, the company is passionate about comfort during sleep. The charming Stefano Marescotti, our Magniflex guest and a man passionately involved in new product developments, tells me that they now sell in over 70 different counties worldwide and have very quickly become a QVC UK favourite too.
You can try it for yourselves for up to 30 days, available in Single, Double, King and Super King in 3 Easy Payments and with free P&P! I can tell you – it’s amazing! I had only previously tried their mattress topper and pillow but this mattress takes comfort to another level. It’s also amazing the way it supports each of us so well at the same time and we are very different in size – in fact by one foot! Being 7ft tall can be a problem for Tracey when buying clothes!!
I was also given a sample of Tuesday’s Today’s Special Value offer from Home Reflections and set it up on a sideboard at home. I think you’ll agree it looks great and created a very welcoming, chic yet cosy atmosphere. It comes complete with a stylish mercury glass tray and four different sized flameless candles that can be set to stay on ‘constant light’ or ‘flicker’ like a real candle. They can also be dimmed and set on four or eight hour timers, all remotely! To top off our fabulous offer, we supply 100 glass beads in an organza style bag to lay in the tray around the candles. The set has been made especially for QVC UK.
That’s all from me this week, I’m off for a relaxing lie down on my Magniflex mattress. I hope they forget to ask for it back!
‘Til next time stay safe, bacteria, mould and dust-mite free !
