I hope all is well. These summer holidays (sometimes with sun!) are flying by! I heard a track on the radio a couple of days ago which I haven't heard for years, even though it dominated the charts for weeks and weeks.
Do you remember Lisa Stansfield's number one hit 'Around the World'? It was released 22 years ago in 1989 and reached number 1 in the UK charts. As I heard the track and I was suddenly sent back in time! I recall, like it was yesterday, walking through Woolworths in Portsmouth with my headphones on listening to a compilation tape with Lisa singing away!
My little rucksack was packed with cassette tapes from Madness to Billy Joel. Now of course we cram thousands of songs onto our MP3 players and iPods! How time has flown.
If we go back 22 years, mobile phones were fairly non-existent and back then of course we were buying vinyl, cassette and the occasional CD. And then of course, there was photography! I'm not even sure the word megapixel existed - rolls of film were what we were buying! So where will we be in another 22 years… any ideas?
I'm really excited about the Today's Special Value I'm launching this coming Wednesday 10th August at midnight. A choice of two trilogy gemset rings! I was lucky enough to meet with the buyer earlier this week to see the designs; they're out of this world. It's a choice between Australian Opal and a brand new, and very hard-to-come-by, gemstone never seen before on QVC. The colour is delicious. All will be revealed this Wednesday night!
Take care and see you soon,
