Beauty Bash news and a Revitalash competition!

736

I was just looking back at my previous blog and couldn’t believe that the heading was all about Christmas! I don’t know about you, but it feels much more like we are in the middle of spring as opposed to January. Not because of the weather, although it has been very mixed, but just because we have crammed in an awful lot over the last couple of weeks – no change there then! :)

However I am clearly not alone when it comes to keeping busy. Thank you so much for all your comments, and for keeping me up-to-date with not just your Christmas but New Year celebrations too! I do appreciate though, that for some of you, the beginning of the year has been difficult, and as always I’m very glad you feel able to share these times rather than worrying about them on your own. A problem shared is a problem halved – something I’ve always believed, and have benefited from over the years.

Something I do though find hard to believe is that it was five years on Monday the 18th January since I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This means that Ali’s Army has been in existence for the same amount of time! I wanted to thank you so much for all your kindness and support over these years, and for getting me through the difficult times, as well as sharing the good times! Fingers crossed for the next five years!

red sky

We seem to have had several ‘Michael Fish moments’ over the last week or more. I took this photograph the other morning as a red sky is meant to be a precursor to heavy snow. You may have heard the saying “Red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning, red sky at night, shepherd’s delight!”? Well, we didn’t have a single flake here, and it was the same story (thankfully) when I drove to see my friend Roz in Dorset at the beginning of the week. Once again snow was forecast, but this was the view from my bedroom window in the morning! A stunning, clear but cold day.

View from Roz's window

I love visiting Roz, not just because she is lovely company and lives in such a beautiful part of the country, but because she’s such a great homemaker. The log burner is always lit, she is usually baking something or another, and this time she had set aside some Seville oranges so we could make our own marmalade. It’s been years since I did this – to be honest almost 40 years! My mother was a great marmalade maker, and my sister Jenny and I used to spend hours cutting the peel for her with scissors that were invariably as blunt as Ben Busby’s boots!

Marmalade ingredients

Marmalade

However, this time, Roz had bought some special multi-bladed scissors, specifically for the job, and they made life a great deal easier! I’m please to say the end result was perfect! It set beautifully and tasted delicious.

The finished product

It was cooking of a different sort that had me in the kitchen for most of last Saturday though. Kathy, Claire, Debbie Greenwood and their husbands were all coming for dinner and I had decided to make coq au vin, complete with my very own bouquet garni using herbs from the garden. I was really chuffed that everyone enjoyed it so much, and along with goat’s cheese and filo pastry parcels to start, and an Italian trifle for pud, we weren’t able to move far once we’d shifted into the sitting room in front of the log burner!

My Bouquet Garni

Honey's crazy smileColin and I are due to stay with Lucy, Simon and Honey soon, and we have been promised a boeuf bourguignon, which I’m looking forward to very much! Lucy is an excellent cook, and they’re both great hosts. I am of course also looking forward very much to seeing Honey, who seems to be growing up frighteningly fast! She can almost crawl now, and has a wonderful selection of facial expressions, including a really strange little smile when she wrinkles her nose and shows her bottom teeth. How cute is this?!

My green smoothie

In spite of all my gluttony, I am trying to eat healthily, and my Nutri Ninja has helped enormously with that. My favourite smoothie at the moment is made up of spinach, apple, ginger and broccoli – incredible colour and tastes delicious! I’m also keeping up with my AeroPilates, and feel that it is definitely helping my back and neck. I have been trying to stick to Marjolein’s 30 day workout, but have missed a couple of days because of my visit to Roz and also the Beauty Bash last week.

Our three-day beauty event takes place each January, and this year featured 67 beauty brands. Some of them were new to QVC, and you may well have spotted them on air over the weekend when we had our Beauty Weekend event! Names like NIOD, Dr Dennis Gross and Nudestix were featured in our ‘New In Beauty’ shows, and will no doubt be majoring in our beauty hours and on the Beauty Channel in the year to come.

Mum and daughter from Beauty Bash

While I was at the Bash, I met a great many of you which was lovely, and I was interested to note that most couples were sisters, mothers and daughters, or best friends. I took this photograph of Angela Harrison and her daughter Emma Marshall, as they were both avid QVC fans. Emma made me laugh out loud when she told me that the QVC logo was now burned into the screen of their television because the channel is on constantly!

Competition prizeI’m sure they will both have been glued to their set this weekend, but if you missed the event and our amazing TSVs, I have two fabulous supersized Revitalash products worth £164 to give away as a prize.

This award-winning conditioner for lashes and brows has been proven to thicken and lengthen both! It’s not just me, but many other QVC presenters who have been using it for years, and it really does work.

To be in with a chance of winning this duo, I’ve set a simple question, and all you need do is to pick the correct answer!

 

When did we first start colouring/enhancing our eyelashes?

  1. a) 753BC
  2. b) 1533
  3. c) 1837

Leave your answer in the comments below before midday on Tuesday 2nd February and don’t forget to put your email address in where it asks! Don’t worry, nobody will see this. Terms & Conditions are here.

Good luck, and I’ll look forward to announcing the winner in my next blog! I hope you have a wonderful week, and that you manage to stay warm and cosy. Looking forward to hearing from you as always,

With my love,

Ali xx

    Hello Ali, Super blog and great photos as always; you could easily produce a book filled with artistic shots of the great outdoors, food and even more food. We haven’t had any snow either, a great the disappointment to the students at school but much to my relief because I’m not a fan. I’m not keen on January either and have used the evenings to catch up on my reading, I’ve also started to fill in my colouring book for grown ups – gosh that sentence puts me firmly in the middle-aged bracket! Honey gets prettier with every photo and I love her smile which is very similar to one Bex used to do when she was about 9 months old. Talking of my gorgeous daughter she had her anomaly scan yesterday and they’re having a boy so I will start to fill my baby box with all things male. Having had two daughters and then Tallulah it will be different and so lovely to experience having a grandson. Ant and Bex were also delighted to reunited with their cat Enzo after he disappeared at the start of the month, he was found, a tad battered, in the linen room of a local hotel, if only he could talk. We’re off to the theatre tonight to see a whodunnit so I’ll sign off by saying how well I remember January 2011 when it was very difficult to hold on to the idea that darkness is the absence of light. I’m so pleased our replies have supported you and I’m privileged to be invited into your life. Love from Jo x

      Dear Joanna, Thank you for the compliments re the photos! I must admit my editor Ayesha always does a great job of putting the blog together, and I know I do take quite a few pics, so maybe should compile them one day! :) Great news about Ant and Bex baby – a little boy – how wonderful for you. Having had two of my own it will be lovely for you to experience the differences – although to be honest outside of clothing, there are very few until they are quite a lot older! gosh that was good news about Enzo – as you say, if only he could talk! I hope you enjoyed the theatre – I’m off to see Billy Connolly on Wednesday night and can’t wait…. Bless you for remembering 2011.. Your constant support and lovely comments have often comforted me, and still do. Thank you Jo – it’s my privilege also. Take good care, and keep up with the colouring!! Love Ali xx

    Hi Alison. I think the competition answer is 1837.
    So another busy time for you..the marmalade looks amazing..I plan to do marmalade this year using oranges, lemons and limes. No one else eats it so I can put what I want in it! The dinner party menu sounded scrummy too..love goats cheese..one of my favourites.
    I couldn’t go to the Beauty Bash as working in a school makes it impossible to get time off to go..all the Facebook posts on Back to You made me so jealous I stopped looking at them; the goody bags looked fabulous. I hope QVC can run one day at least on a weekend as I am sure I am not the only one who is unable to go during the week..I would love to have met everyone. And you!!
    So busy as ever and lots going on this week. Not in the least it was my daughter’s 16th Birthday today. She loved her floating maltezer cake; I had made that Sunday because of time restraints and the house smells of malty chocolate. To be honest I am glad it was finally cut and now hidden in my lock N lock cake box.
    I have also committed myself to doing an online finance and book keeping course to complete in my spare time…yes that is rather limited I know but will be useful when the new Ale House venture starts..have a meeting tomorrow about whether it is financially a goer for us. Anyhow I am due to have surgery on my left leg soon so as I will be off work for a week I can do it then as I can’t drive for 5 days so will stop me getting bored. Plus it is probably a good general skill to have and I get a certificate at the end..hooray!!!
    Chloe wanted to go out with her friends tonight so a large group of them went to Nandos. She has a great group of friend, girls and boys, which I think is a great thing to have. She loved her pressies, a suitcase for her holiday in July after her GCSE’s, (her friend has grandparent’s who live in a villa in the hills near Malaga and they are going out for two weeks, flights booked!), some travel mini items, a links of London bracelet, a rose gold vermeil diamonique bar bracelet, Euros, makeup, CD and a bit of cash. She was spoilt by all the family and her friends so she is now in bed after a hectic day. I can remember her at Honey’s age. Don’t they grow up quickly?. Have a great week. Love Mary xx

    • Alison Keenan February 1, 2016 at 1:17 am -  Reply

      ooh Mary Lime marmalade is Colin’s favourite! Sounds as tho you are busy as always in the kitchen! Although I was sorry to hear that you have to have surgery on your leg soon…. For Heavens sake make sure you have back up and someone to ferry you around for a change! How did the Ale House meeting go?? It all sounds very exciting as did your Chloe’s 16th birthday – Nando’s is my Jack’s favourite eating establishment also. So glad she liked the cake – I am sure her friends were incredibly impressed. Thanks for your comments re the Beauty Bash.. I will pass this on as it is a valid comment, and remembering those days when I was a Monday to Friday girl, it was incredibly frustrating to miss out on things. I think we start promoting it some months ahead though so maybe you could book a day off?? Just a thought as it would be lovely to meet you! I hope that you had a good weekend, and look forward to hearing how you’re getting on following the op. Love Ali x

    Another hugely enjoyable blog. How do you fit so much in to your already busy life? Regarding the competition, I think the answer must be 753 BC, I’m thinking of the Egyptians, particularly Cleopatra! Fingers crossed and here’s to a far better February than January was (if you know what I mean!)

    Would love to win the Revitalash, at that wonderfu age when things start to fall off, well all except the fat!! That marmalade looks fabulous, it’s been years since I had home made marmalade. I can’t believe it’s been 5 years, my sister’s done 2 years so far so we’re all rooting for her. xx

      Brenda, just wanted to wish your sister all the best! Two years is great – stay positive and the next two will flash by also. You made me laugh with your comment, and glad you liked the look of the marmalade! It tasted good too! Take care, and so glad your sister has you to support her. Love Ali xx

  275. yasmin holmes January 28, 2016 at 8:46 am -  Reply

    the answer is c – 753BC! In Rome, eyelashes that were long, thick, and curled were a sought-after beauty trait. Women used kohl and burnt cork to darken their eyelashes. Roman philosopher Pliny the Elder wrote that lashes fell out from excessive sex—yes, seriously—so women would also look after them to prove their chastity.

    • Alison Keenan February 1, 2016 at 1:22 am -  Reply

      Well Yasmin, I am sure that will amuse and please a great many women who have taken part in this competition!! Pliny the Elder was a very learned gentleman I believe, but I have to admit that this is definitely one of the more unusual things I have read! Thanks for taking part in the competition though, love Ali xx

    Hi Alison,
    I love reading your blogs especially about little Honey. She is such a gorgeous little girl and looks so much like Lucy.
    I would love to try revitalash as mine are the shortest and points downwards so I have yet to find anything that would make them look long curly and luscious.
    I think the answer is 753BC as my memory of history tells me the Egyptians started the trend. Cleopatra even had the cat flick back then…
    Good luck to everyone x

    • Alison Keenan February 1, 2016 at 1:26 am -  Reply

      Jules you are kind, and I will pass your comments onto Lucy. You’re right Honey is like her mum, and even more like her mum was when she was a little girl too! All the correct answers will go into our draw on Tuesday, so I will keep my fingers crossed for you.. If not, it may well be worth investing in the lash conditioner anyway! Love Ali xx

    Hi Ali, I had to lol as our television also has the pink qvc logo burned into it, but the biggest lol is that its an expensive television from qvc bought about 7 years ago, my husband calls me the qvc queen as I have bought lots of things, kipling, make up , you name it I have it, he says I have more nail polish in the house than a nail bar. When I was in hospital 4 years ago, the surgeon and anaesthetist came to see me just 2 hours after my surgery and she said you are all glam wish all my patients were like you, I had put on my nail polish the one that had the magnet which made your nails look like stripes, the surgeon did a double take, he must have been wandering how I managed it. So glad to hear about your 5 years Ali, I ill be 5 Yrs in November 3rd this year, so blessed. Enjoy your stay with your family, Honey is a wee cutie with that smile.
    The answer is 753BC
    Much Love

      Dear Elizabeth, so good to hear that you too are in good health, and this is your fifth year – long may it last. You were lucky the surgeon didn’t make you take your nail polish off!! I remember my friend Colette, coming in to see me the day after my mastectomy, and while I slept she painted my toe nails bless her. So glad you enjoy the photos of Honey – she is definitely as you say, a cutie :) Take care of yourself, and keep in touch – tweet me some photos of your gorgeous nails @alikqvc! Glad you know you’re with us all here. Love Ali xx

    Hi Ali, I think the answer to your competition question is a) 753bc. It’s really hard to believe that it’s 5 years since your diagnosis and I’m so pleased that all continues to be well!!
    Your marmalade looks very yummy. I only attempted jam making once, many years ago, and I had to throw the” jam”, the spoon and the pan in the bin. It set like rock!! I’m afraid I’m no Mary Berry!
    We’re now looking forward to our Charlie’s 1st birthday tomorrow and his christening on Sunday. He’s such a little sweetheart!
    Your little Honey looks so happy, and I’ve just heard you say she started crawling today. There’ll be no stopping her now! The other day Charlie found his way into their kitchen cupboard and emptied a bag of pasta all over the floor. He was really proud of himself! I would love to send you photos of him but I’m not on Twitter.
    I’ve had the installation date for my new kitchen today. The 1st of March so it should be finished just in time for my birthday on the 4th! Soooo excited!! Anyway bye for now Ali and looking forward to your next blog. Love Sue xx

    • Alison Keenan February 1, 2016 at 1:34 am -  Reply

      Hi there Sue, how did the christening go? Do hope the weather stayed dry for you and that little Charlie and his mum and dad enjoyed the day? I hope also that his birthday was fun too. Such a lovely age – hard to believe that Honey is 9 months old next week – just after my youngest son is 23! Honey has just started to crawl, so heaven knows what she will find in my kitchen cupboards! We must both be Pisces and my son Sam will be 27 on the 10th March too! Very exciting about your kitchen, and if you’d like to send photos then you can follow me on Twitter by downloading the app and then finding me @alikqvc. Take care and thanks for writing and taking part in the competition! love Ali xxx

    Hello Ali
    another busy time for you but very enjoyable. Love the marmalade. It took me back to my mum teaching me how to make damson jam when I was at school. I must admit I haven’t made any for some years so who knows I may start doing so again. I love Honey’s expression. My youngest granddaughter is trying to learn to wink and she scrunches her nose up tight in great attempts to succeed. So funny to see! I’m making a slow recovery now having finally being diagnosed with a chest infection and then bronchitis. I have an inhaler which has proved a great help. Hopefully this will be the end of what seems to have been never ending. I like the idea for your competition and have thought long and hard for a answer. I’m going with 753bc with fingers crossed.

    Hope this finds you well and so very pleased with your news of 5 years and counting. Take care and love and hugs as always
    Judith xx

      My dear Judith, I am so sorry you are still feeling poorly…rotten when it brings you down like that. I hope the inhaler will continue to help. Lovely though that you have your grandchildren to cheer you. Your youngest granddaughter sounds similar to Honey.. who has just started to crawl! Her facial expressions though are priceless – she is such a joy to me. Yes, hard to believe it’s 5 years…. no remission but I base it all on how I am feeling, which is currently pretty well :) Thanks for keeping in touch. Love Ali xx

    Hi Ali,
    Thought I’d try and get my comment’s in quickly as I know whenever you run a competition you have loads responding!
    The weather has been quite mild until now. It was quite chlly when we went out today and blustery. There are quite a lot of daffodils out which I love seeing as I think spring can’t be far away.
    It doesn’t seem possible that it’s 5 years since you were first diagnosed! You have truely fought it so bravely and tirelessly. I don’t think I would be so brave .
    I’m in bed writing this feeling quite hungry after seeing all the food on your blog. We try not to eat to late before going to bed which usually means I start getting the munchies about this time! I usually have some grenola but I’ve run out so am trying not to go downstairs to get a biscuit!!
    Well I’m so glad the snow has kept away. They’ve only got to mention snow and everyone’s panic buying bread. The security guard in my local M&S said they’d given 6 inches of snow by the end of the week! If we do get it , it doesn’t last long anyway. I bought a special snow shovel a few years back and we haven’t had snow since, thank goodness… LOL.
    Well, time has run away again so I must turn in.
    All the best, Tina S. (S. Wales) x

    • Alison Keenan February 2, 2016 at 11:58 am -  Reply

      Hi there Tina, did you manage to hold off from grabbing the biscuits? I love granola too – especially with my Easiyo! I don’t possess a snow shovel, but did put a big blanket in the back of my car a few weeks back just incase I got caught in a blizzard :) It’s mild and sunny here today, so I think I may well get out into the garden once I’ve read the replied to the lovely comments here! I hope you have some sunshine in Wales too. Take care and keep in touch, love Ali xx

    HI Ali … Another interesting blog…. The beauty bash I guess was a great success it all looked very interesting ..I would love to come to London and be involved and see all the lovely products and the demonstrations … I guess you had a great time at your friends house with the marmalade making and the view from the window was lovely….I also read with interest that it was five years for you on Monday the 18th that’s great and you look so well… And so many things have happened for you the wedding and the birth of Honey… Her little picture so cute…. So much in life to look forward to I’m so pleased for you…. January seems such a long month not one I’m fond of really and Christmas seems so far away now but not long to wait until Spring and the better weather..I’m taking my youngest grandaughter to see “Thriller ” tomorrow night at the theatre in Sunderland she’s so looking forward to it no doubt we will be up dancing and singing ….and on Saturday Fiona and I are going to Newcastle for a meal at Marco Pierre Whites which was part of my Christmas gift from her … Looking forward to it….. So until next time Ali take care and keep warm and well… Chris x

    • Alison Keenan February 2, 2016 at 12:02 pm -  Reply

      Hi there Chris, great to hear from you, and I do hope you and your granddaughter had fun at “Thriller”? Plenty of dance tunes in that show I’m sure! Do let me know what you choose to eat at Marco Pierre Whites won’t you – I’m very envious! My friend Jo is taking me to see Billy Connolly tomorrow night, which I am very excited about. We were about 12 the first time we saw him on TV, and he made us roar with laughter then. So many things to be happy about as you say, and little Honey definitely an absolute joy to me. Take care, and thanks for writing to me, love Ali xx

    Hello Dear Ali,

    I have replied to the last two of your lovely blogs, but for some reason they didn’t make it onto your website, so hopefully more luck with this one. Firstly I am going with answer “A” to your competition and I have to say my poor old lashes could really do with a boost!

    Little Honey is absolutely gorgeous and at such a pretty age and I have to say Ali I really can see a resembalance to you. Your stay with your friend looks such fun and what a beautiful part of the world, I have to say where I am in Brighton it is all looking really bleak, but as you say signs of Spring are beginning to show.

    It is so true when you say a problem shared is a problem halved as at the moment I am going through some horrible legal issues, but my friends are really there for me and I feel so much better when I have spoken to my wonderful best friend over a glass of wine and a bowl of chips!

    Keep up the good work healthwise Ali because you are such an inspiration and it is lovely to chat with you via email.

    Lots of love to you and Colin,

    Gwen.X.

    • Alison Keenan February 2, 2016 at 12:08 pm -  Reply

      Dear Gwen, I ‘m so sorry that your last two comments didn’t appear on the blog, especially as you’d taken the time to write, but lovely to hear from you this week. Thank you for your kind words about Honey – I am seeing her and Lucy tomorrow and will pass them on. I’m very glad that you also have friends you can lean on while you go through what sounds to be a tricky and stressful time. I’d definitely be lost without my friends, without a doubt! Brighton is one of Colin’s favourite places and it’s where he asked me to marry him, so pretty special to us both. The sun will no doubt shine on you soon I’m certain :) Take care, and do keep in touch, love Ali xx

I’m just so sorry it’s also then been the same amount of time since both amika and buellah passed away. I wonder how their families are .

Your kind words are much appreciated, although you are right, it’s been several years now since we lost Amica and Buellah… I often think of them, and like you, hope very much that their families are coping… I do hope all is good with you, and thank you for writing, love Ali xx

I am known at work as the “nail girl” as I always look after them paint them twice a week my hubby says I have more paint than Dulux or any otber reputable manufacturer!! Your granddaughter is such a poppet no wonder you are so proud of her.

      Hi there Linda, it was lovely to meet you too, and Ali told me she had seen you, and commented on how beautiful your nails were. Honey is such a sweetie isn’t she? She has just learned to crawl too – nothing will be safe now! Thanks for taking part in the competition, love Ali xx

  461. Katie January 30, 2016 at 1:32 pm -  Reply

    I think the answer is a)753bc. I have horrible eyelashes & eyebrows, very blonde & sparse. I used both when they were on a good offer on QVC & bought on several occasions. It was brilliant I could not believe how much thicker & darker my non existent eyebrow went. My gaps in my eyelashes filled & they did get a bit longer unfortunately I couldn’t afford to keep buying it when it ran out so it would be amazing to win this. My eyelashes have however stayed without gaps but eyebrows have gone back to normal.

    • Alison Keenan February 2, 2016 at 12:17 pm -  Reply

      Katie thanks for letting me know how you got on with Revitalash, which was interestingly the same results I had. I think the hair on the brows is thicker and takes longer to grow generally, but I will keep my fingers crossed for you and this competition. Thanks again, love Ali xx

    What a lovely blog Ali. I have been watching you on QVC for years and kept meaning to reply to one of your blogs but never get round to it. I made it a New Year’s resolution not to put anything off and do as much as I can. Hence why I actually posted on on Julia Roberts wall recently. I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since you were diagnosed with cancer, time has flown by, but I am SO SO glad you are well and I pray that your good health continues. I’m in love with your positivity, your joy and your wonderful smile during all your troubles. (I think the same of Julia Roberts). Amazing!! I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 15 years ago. Life has not been easy but despite the disabilities that it has left me with I feel incredibly blessed. This is my opinion, I know others may feel differently, but I know that we are here for a short time so I try to find the blessings in every day and believe me there are many. Thank you for being you and keep smiling.

    I am in love with the jewellery shows – diamonds are my favourite – the more the merrier I say. I also love Alison Young – she is so funny. I could listen to her all day. In fact al the presenters are lovely.

    Your little Honey is so so beautiful. Don’t they grow up so quickly. I don’t have grandchildren but my children are 24 and 22 and I can’t believe where the time has gone.

    Keep up the good work

    Love and God bless

    Ruth

    • Alison Keenan February 2, 2016 at 12:23 pm -  Reply

      Dear Ruth I am so glad it has been your resolution to not put anything off, especially as it means you are writing here on the blog. Thank you very much for your kind words, and I admire your positivity and outlook on life. Multiple sclerosis is a very difficult disease to live with I am sure, and I always feel very blessed that the worst of my cancer and the treatment was over and done with within the first year. For you to have to contend with this on a daily basis as well as being a mum to your two children must be very hard. I’m glad that we are able to keep you company, and that you enjoy the shows. I will pass your comments on to Alison Young – she is as you say, a star! Take good care and keep in touch, love Ali xx
