Bristol, Home Day and Yankee News!


Jasmine and CraigHi there!

Hope you are well and had a great weekend!

I had a great week last week with attending the Beauty Bash (am waiting for photos so more on that next time!) and then this weekend I was in Bristol with my beloved family celebrating my niece Jasmine's 11th birthday – we had great fun as usual and as you can see Jasmine is now pretty much as tall as me!

Exciting week this week as I will be launching New Year, New Home on Wednesday into Thursday and what better way of refreshing the home than with some designer style from the fabulous Kelly Hoppen?

Kelly Hoppen beddingI have been lucky enough to sleep in this over the last week or so and, as you would expect, it's bliss!!

High thread count and Egyptian Cotton – I will tell you more with Kelly at the launch. I opted for white – so fresh and timeless. In the photos you can also see a perfect little display from Peony flowers as they have two shows that day too. 



BamixAlso on Home Day there is a Bamix kitchen show and you can see in the photos how I made the most scrummy salsa – I didn't even look at the instructions – just plugged it in and got going – easy!

And yes, the moment you have been waiting for…the Large Jar Yankee Candles in the NEW and USA 2014 fragrances on auto-delivery are coming soon, hurrah!!!



Flowers and Jar candle bed-sideI can now confirm that they will first appear on air during the 3pm show on Sunday 2nd February. If you want to get ahead of the game though follow me on twitter (@craigrowe_tv) as I will be tweeting the item number as soon as I get it and that means the minute it's in stock you can order them; even ahead of the show.




Home Day itemsDid you buy the Yankee 2014 Today's Special Value? What's your favourite? I adore 'Under The Palms' with its subtle coconut fragrance combined with fresh, sea air and green notes, but my favourite so far is 'Luau Party' – fun & fruity, yum!!!

So, there you have it – you now know the date and the time and as soon as I have an item number I will let you know!

Do post a comment below, I reply to them all.

Hugs, Craig x

    thanks for the info Craig! cant wait to see what the large jars are, so great that QVC enable us to get these! I have the tsv and have fallen in love with Under The palms, Ive bought the large jar too and am burning it now, just beautiful! love all 3 of the fragrances, Luau Party is just SUMMER! am so excited to smell all the new UK and USA fragrances throughout the year. Very interested to see some comments that a few people are finding these fragrances less strong than usual, as I find they have the same fragrance strength as always, I wonder if different people have different ‘noses’ for different fragrances as some do with food! xx

    Great blog as usual Craig.
    It is nice to hear about your life on and off screen.
    I missed out on the Yankee candles TSV at the beginning of the year, so can’t comment on the new fragrances. I am looking forward to the next Yankee Candles shows.
    Can’t wait for the Kelly Hoppen TSV.
    Take care and keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the insight into the large jar auto delivery is coming soon. My mother in law is dying to get them ordered.
    Can you confirm if item number 792791 is going back on the ‘super bargain price’ as it was on it one minute & not the next.
    Also, 703237 was on auto delivery but I missed it. Is it coming back? Thanks.

    Hi again Laura!
    Did you mean 702791? As 792791 doesnt exist. If so this one has premiered today. I’ve just checked pricing and it should be on Super Bargain price, but I would advise to buy early as I think this will sell out today
    The 3 large jars are on theย 3pmย show on Sunday on A/D.
    Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Craig love reading your blog and watching you on tv you always make me laugh .I have to say watching you do the tsv with Kelly Hoppen made me really laugh when you said you had been sleeping in flannel the shock on her face was really funny .Thanks for being so cheerful xx

    I’m sorry, yes I did mean 702791 #typo
    I got my order in before they went out of stock, thank-you. And they have been dispatched now, so I should have them early next week.
    As for the auto delivery large jars – I have also placed an order for the UK/US collection, but on the QVC website there is another collection for Q1 2014 large jars that was on auto delivery for a very short period of time, I was wondering if this collection would be coming back on auto delivery.
    Thanks for your efforts to answer my questions, I appreciate it.

    Hi Laura,
    You’re welcome, Glad I could help.
    I’ll try and find out if that new collection is coming back on auto delivery and will let you know once I hear back.

    Hi Laura,
    I have been advised that once auto delivery has been taken off the system it is no longer available. They are for a limited time only
    Probably not the answer you wanted, but hope that helps :-).
    Hope you’re having a good week and catch up soon.
