Christmas is coming!!


…and so is Elaine Paige and L'Occitane and so much more for our Christmas Launch Weekend!

We are launching head on into Christmas shopping this weekend. I love Christmastime. It seems to bring the best out in people and is a great time to shower those you love with your time, love and carefully chosen goodies.

It's only 2 months away now so a great time to start crossing off some presents on your to get list. I love the fact that QVC offers an extended 30 day money back guarantee (extended to the 25th of January) on Christmas gifts bought from this saturday up until Christmas so you can start buying for family & friends with confidence.

Elaine Paige is returning to QVC after her first show with us earlier this year where she sold her DVD/CD Elaine Paige – Celebrating a Life on Stage which was incredibly successful selling thousands of copies.

The new album is called Elaine and Friends and is a duets album of modern, contemporary yet classic tracks. She duets with John Barrowman, Billy Ocean, Olivia Newton John, Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond, and many more.  We will see clips of her in the recording studio with John, Billy and Olivia and hear what they have to say about working with Elaine. If you have any questions you'd like me to put to the lady herself please comment below and I'll do my best! Elaine will be with us at 9am and 1pm on saturday. My mum will be setting the video to record as we are both massive fans, hee hee!

Now, L'Occitane fans will be overjoyed at sunday's Today's Special Value! It is GLORIOUS!! It comes in a stunning gift box with incredible value and two different options. It features full sizes, new fragrances and 2 supersizes!! I will definately be getting my orders in, no question about it, and at least one will be for Chez Huntley.

I order lots of L'Occitane for my own bathroom as well as for gifting and know the value for money QVC offers as standard but this is mind blowing value and such a treat. I'll be joined by Alexis on sunday at 1pm (provided the bundle of joy she is expecting at any moment doesn't have other ideas!) so tune in for some truly tempting gift ideas.

I hope to hear from you soon. It's been way too long since my last blog! Busy busy busy!

Much love & happy Christmas shopping!

    Hiya Catherine
    Im SO excited about the L,Occitane TSV. I got 2 of the Xmas TSVs last year, and they were FAB.
    I have been doing a wee bit “research” the last couple of days. I am SO organised for Xmas this year, that I only have 3 gifts to get. Unfortunately, I have to go to the shops to get them, BOOOHOOO!
    EVERYTHING else is from QVC. Mostly L,Occitane, Elemis, Yankee, and Liz Earle. I was at a bit of a loose end, so decided to do a like for like comparison. Boy, did I get HUGE shock. I have saved £317.00, even including P&P. I just could not believe it.
    Im watching Murano gold just now. Seeing as I saved all that money, I decided to treat myself to a gorgeous ring!!!!!
    Hope you are ok Catherine
    Lots of love
    Una xx

    Hi Catherine
    Nice to read your blog, wow only 2 month to Christmas, where did the year go? I”ve started to make my Christmas cards 2 weeks ago as I have so much staff from last year and wanted to use them before I go mad on Craft day. Thanks to QVC I”ve also managed to get a few presents to put away, and now I can”t wait for Christmas shopping week-end, I”ll be watching. As you know living in Mallorca is hard to find all the staff I need, so I”ll be so lost without QVC, and believe it or not I ordered an earring from B&W show and it got here in 2 days only WOW.
    Much love.

    Hi Catherine,
    I love Christmas time too! So cosy & snuggly even if it is just with the dog!! It’s lovely to hear from you again. We all missed hearing from you & hope you are ok? It sounds like you’ve had a bit of a rough time of late. It’s still not a good time for lots of us in general really is it!? Things have got to get better though. And with QVC deals & fun it is a sure thing! Hope the kiddies are doing well? Take care,

    Hi Catherine
    Just read your wee message from your mum. I had a lump in my throat reading it. Im so glad you have a close and loving family around you. It makes you realise just how lucky you are doesnt it.
    You are maybe a grown woman, with children of your own, but you are still your mums little girl. Its just awful having to watch when your children are hurt, but unfortunately, sometimes we just have to do it.
    You are obviously a strong gutsy lady, and i totally agree with your mum, you have been SO professional.
    Lots of love
    Una xx

    Hi Catherine
    Nice to see you blogging again. I too love l’occitane and love gifting so it gives friends and family the same pleasure to use it as I get.
    Just heard that December 1st is a lulu guineas tsv – I don’t suppose you can give any hints on what style / size we can expect? I can’t wait and have my diary reminder set already.
    Take care
    X x Jan

    Morning Catherine
    What a joy it was to watch one of my fav QVC presenters this week. I had 2 days A/L but was unwell so “Thank, God” for QVC! I still think you are wasted on QVC and how Christine got Daybreak on (ITV) is beyond me!! Do you ever apply for other presenting jobs?? You would be “Wonderful” they don’t know what they are missing!so i will take it upon myself to get in touch with CEO’s of different TV channels. If you don’t mind of course??

    Hi Catherine,
    Just had to stop by and say how much I love your hair the way you had it today. It is so flattering and made you look even more stunning than usual.
    You are always a delight to watch.
    Keep smiling!
    Love, K.

    Hi Catherine
    Lovely to see you back. Hope you enjoyed your wee holiday.
    I was laughing at you and your “sports injury” . I know EXACTLY what you mean about these air hockey games. We got my son a table top one about 4 years ago for xmas. My brother came along on boxing day, realised how much fun it was, then called a couple of his friends, and they had “TOURNAMENTS” till 3 a.m.!! The noise in my house was unbelievable, my neighbours must have hated me. Was very funny though, as 2 boys in particular were very competitive and got quite serious about it all. I was in absolute fits of laughter, the tears were streaming down my face at one point.
    My son took it when he went to uni, and they had a few sleepless nights, when they had their little tournaments. Happy days.
    Lots of love
    Una xx

    Hi Catherine!
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
    I’ve love seeing you on QVC but you must stop apologising for having a laugh. We all enjoy some fun and it’s great that you can make jokes when you are on air! 🙂 Do you get told off? 😮
    Thank you for a wonderful year. You always look amazing.
    Hope you have a super New Year.

    Hi catherine!
    I have just been watching you on the everyday beauty show on Monday morning with the yogi wand and perfect formulae for nails. You look fantastic and I LOVE your dress!!!! I was just wondering if you could tell me where its from? I love all of your clothes so you’ll probably get more of these messages in the future…SORRY!

    Been nice to see you back on air.
    I didnt even realise it was you at first! I was in the kitchen when the show started, and when I came into the lounge, there was a side shot of you, and I just couldnt figure out who was presenting! Then, you were out of shot, but I could hear your voice. LOVING the long hair, it really suits you, and you are such a skinny minny!
    Hope everything is going well for you Catherine
    Love Una x

    Hi Catherine,
    Had to write as I’m watching your Red Carpet show and just like Miss Jill last night you too look absolutely stunning!! I adore your dress and your figure is so svelte! Like Una I am loving your hair!! Especially the curls – gorgeous on you. I really hope things have picked up for you as you hadn’t had a great time of it clearly towards the end of last year. You’re a great gal so hope things have picked up a bit.
    Loving your show and you should all get to do more beauty shows as it’s nice to have a variety!
    Take care
    Susan x
