Feeling more fabulous every day!


Hi everyone! I hope you’re all well and happy. Personally, I’m feeling fantastic as I’ve made some very positive life changes. I’m calling this #theyearichangedmylifeforever – more to come on that later…

This month’s Technology & You run of shows also makes me extremely happy as we’ve had such positive feedback from customers who are really appreciating the back-to-basics approach. Our guests are on hand to help jargon-bust and answer your questions live on air. The series has been running, and continues to run, at 3pm every Saturday during August. Last week was the exception due to our 50 hours of fashion event being on.

803343 Samsung vacuum cleanerThis weekend we are back with big name brands such as Bose, Archos, Samsung and more. We have a great 4G phone which is our most affordable 4G phone to date! I’ve been trying it out and it’s a lovely phone. 4G is kind of like getting broadband speeds but on the go so everything operates quickly and easily. Abby Horne will be joining me to thoroughly explain all the technology clearly. Great size phone too, big enough for everything to be clear enough to see but compact enough for pockets and handbags. I think you’ll love it.

As for Samsung, perhaps you might’ve thought it would be a laptop or a TV we might be featuring? You’d be wrong in this case. It’s actually our Today’s Special Value for Saturday and is a…wait for it…vacuum cleaner! This is a vacuum with a huge difference, actually a few, to be honest with you. It’s your main vacuum but then, residing on board the main machine, there’s a detachable handheld which is really helpful for lots of jobs where you don’t want to be dragging the main vacuum about with you. Make sure you tune in to see more of this as it really packs a punch!! Super suction!

Please, if you haven’t joined us for Technology & You before, consider yourself cordially invited by me to take part. It’s through your direct feedback that we can ensure we’re bringing you the products you want and explaining them in the way that helps you. No question is too small or big. It’s a very different technology show to the usual set up and we are able to offer the floor to you to ask anything you like. I’ll try to ensure our wonderful guests break everything down for us so it’s really easy to grasp because technology is for everyone, not just self-confessed computer nerds. Get yourself involved!

AdornMe Fashion JewelleryThis Saturday I am also thrilled to be launching a brand new jewellery range which is vibrant, different and über stylish! It’s called Adorn Me. You may have noticed a few of us presenters wearing it and mentioning it live on air recently. Definitely one to look out for if you fancy something fresh and new! Tune in at 4pm this Saturday, right after Technology & You.

Now, back to feeling great. I’ve been following a new healthy way of life for the past few weeks which has meant cutting out certain foods, caffeine and alcohol. I’ve lost a stone and five inches on my waist! But it’s not only about that for me. I wanted to make big changes and get healthy for life and it’s paying off. I have more energy, enthusiasm, clarity. It’s great to feel I’m getting ‘back to me’!

Week 1       Week 4

Speaking of which, ‘Back to You’ is Debbie Flint’s show which focuses on getting you back to health, back to fitness, back to your true you. It returns in the very near future so check her blog for more. Alongside the show, Debbie has a Facebook page of the same name. I was honoured to be invited to take part in their Monday night ‘live chat’ session this week. It was great to speak with so many lovely people who made me very welcome and had some really good questions. Thanks Debbie!

No doubt I’ll be updating you on my progress regarding #theyearichangedmylifeforever very soon. Watch this space…

Lots of love,

Catherine xxx

    Hi Catherine,
    Wow you did well with your weight loss, you can see a difference in the photos. And I expect cutting out certain foods and drink will make you feel better. I find with things like bread that it will blow me out so I try not to eat it. It is surprising what certain foods contain.
    Glad you are enjoying your technology shows, I expect it is very interesting. The Samsung ,vacuum sounds good, and the bonus of any vacuum these days is to have the detachable one included. There are so many brands out there, you never no which to go for. I have a Miele I purchased from QVC and I love it.
    The jewellery looks lovely, will have to watch this.
    How are your gorgeous cats.
    Take care.
    Love Jean XX

    How are you losing weight Catherine, because for some reason, no matter what I do lately, I cant stop eating. If I had a Regime to stick to, I may be able to start myself off, thats all I need is to start it off, and that will encourage me to carry on.Thanks Catherine. I am so glad for you! xx

    Hi Catherine well done with your life changes. You have been so inspiring, what with your blog and tweets, that I have also started day 1 today of no sugar, no wheat, no processed food, no caffeine and daily exercise. What an inspiration you are – thank you. Keep us updated!

    Hi Catherine, I have never written a comment before, I have just bought a laptop, I am a bit behind the times. I love QVC and have bought a few things normally when my husband is out at work.
    My son has been very helpful while muttering under his breath.
    Anyway I just thought I would write a comment, before I forget, I think you look really great. keep up the great work it really is playing off. Bye for now.

    Thank you all for all of your lovely comments. I’m sorry my reply is so late! I’ve been crazy busy..even more crazy busy than usual!

    I’m so thrilled to tell you that the fitness plan I’ve been following is due to come to QVC on January 2nd. So you’ll still have time to polish off the leftover choccies before the book arrives and the New Years resolutions kick in!

    It’s by Christianne Wolff. She is a celebrity fitness trainer and, also, the sister of lovely Marie-Francoise Wolff, our Kipling guest! What a beautiful and talented family they are.

    I will put some more details in my blog as we get nearer to the launch. The recipes are lovely!

    Sending you all my my love & hugs,

    Catherine xxx
