Back from holiday, Butler & Wilson favourites and a kids update!


Hi there!

I’m back from Crete having had a lovely two week break with the family. I just thought I’d share this photo with you as the children are growing up so fast.

We got back in time for the all important GCSE results and after all the trials and tribulations my son did fantastically well, even getting a name check as one of the schools high achievers by the local paper. It  made us so proud! He still has no idea what he wants to do in life but is currently enjoying being reunited with his beloved X-box!

Meanwhile, getting back to the studios has been really exciting, especially with all the new products that are flooding in. It’s amazing how many things you can miss just by being away for a couple of weeks, so I’m making sure I’m back in the loop.

I’ve loved the Butler & Wilson shows. Simon Wilson, who is such an icon when it comes to fashion jewellery, celebrated  21 years of shows on QVC and we really did have something for everyone in the finale from the amazing necklace I was wearing which you can see in the picture and was previously seen on Britain’s Next Top Model, to the classic dancing couple and some of the whimsical pieces too. If you fancy treating yourself then take a look at the range on the QVC UK website. The pieces are exquisitely designed, beautifully made, and Simon’s prices are just incredible – here’s to the next 21 years!

As August draws to a close there are lots things to look forward to. I don’t know about you but as the kids go back to school the first thing I do is get the house looking ship-shape again after the onslaught of the holidays. One of the products I have been enjoying lately is the new Shark vacuum. It’s called the Shark Rocket and it really is a powerhouse, but weighs only 4kg! Where it differs from other similar products, is it really performs well on carpets as well as hard floors. It comes with two interchangeable brush rolls that you can switch really easily depending on the floor surface you are on.

So, instead of one brush roll that compromises you get a brush roll dedicated to that particular floor surface which makes such a difference. Watch out for the new AH450 power head model which I’ll be launching at midnight on Friday at a great Today’s Special Value price! Oh, and tune in on Monday the 5th September at 5pm when I’ll be joining Andi Peters for a two hour food fest special. I can’t wait. See you there!

    What a lovely family photo Jilly, can’t believe the children are so grown up! Where do the years go eh? I think they both look like you, so good looking. Well done to your son with his exam results, am guessing he staying on at school while he decides what he wants to do? Nice to see you back on our screens. All downhill now with regards to the weather/dark evenings soon and dare I say it, Christmas. I love Christmas but always think it’s a long haul Jan to March! Better find those warm coats and winter woolies!xx
