What are you hoping that April will bring? For me April will be filled with aspirations, the main one being finding a new house. I’ve never been involved in buying a house before, so any tips you can pass on would be gratefully accepted. What to do, what not to do – that sort of thing? Anything you can tell me that you’ve learned would be fantastic.
There’s so much to navigate through and understand. It’s the strangest process to go through – daunting because it’s the biggest financial commitment that the majority of us make in our lifetimes, but also exciting at the same time. Of course, that said someone’s also got to fall in love with our apartment yet, so that we can buy that dream house. We saw something and kind of set our hearts on it, only to find it sold just the day before we called the Estate Agents to view it! I have a feeling it’s going to be a rollercoaster of a month.
What are you doing for Easter? I’ll be bringing you some amazing jewellery this Good Friday. I love Diamonique and I am crazy about loveRocks, so it’s a good job I’ve got two shows on that day! Make sure you tune in for some tempting pieces.
I’ve been chatting to the lovely Keeley from Elemis on Facebook lately. We’re both Brummie girls and I wanted to drop in the video Will’s done with her about the forthcoming TSV. It’s got a hint at the price too (!) I am a fan of the Pro-Collagen, so if you love this and the Frangipani Monoi too then… hold on tight!

I wanted to say thanks so much to all of you who often Tweet and Facebook me during my shows on QVC. It is so much fun to read them out and also it really truly does make my shows much more dynamic and ‘real’ (if that makes sense) so please do get in touch on this blog as well – I promise I’ll answer any questions you might have about me or life at QVC. This pic of me in this James Lakeland ribbon print dress got over 40 comments the other week!
I’m super-proud to say I’m going to be hosting an event in Birmingham which will celebrate the achievements of women in the West Midlands. It’s going to be over High Tea at the very posh Hyatt Hotel, and organised by my incredible friend Justice Williams, who is an MBE in her own right: a woman who’s helped countless young entrepreneurs start up their own new businesses.
I really think it’s so important that women are sisterly, by that I mean try and support one another. In fact I get very angry at seeing the glut of TV programmes that see women being constantly catty to one another, or being pitted against each other for entertainment on shows like The Real Housewives, which almost backs up the stereotypes that people have about women overall – that we’re not to be trusted and that we’re manipulators who are all out for themselves.
I can truthfully say that’s NOT true of my lovely fellow female presenters at QVC. I’ve never experienced such a family feeling anywhere else that I’ve worked. That’s one of the many reasons why I enjoy working at QVC. OK, so I’ll stop gushing now. Lolz! So keep an eye on my Facebook page for more details of the awards!
Plus don’t forget to give me any tips you might have on Mortgages and house-hunting, I’d really appreciate them. And let me know what aspirations you have for the month of April?
See you soon!
