Hope you are well and that the sun is starting to peep through wherever you are?! All well with me, as I write this blog I am sat in my garden in the sun listening to the birds singing, sipping an orange juice with my neighbour and feeling very blessed
It's been a great couple of weeks: my friend Sue (the lady who hosted my 40th birthday celebrations last summer in France – check out the blog here) was over for the weekend and we had an action-packed weekend – we had a dinner party, went exploring round Portobello Markets, saw 'Wicked' in the West End and saw London from the London Eye!! We also on the Sunday morning had a wonderful brunch in my sun-filled garden – on the menu was veggie & salmon frittatas, warm pastries and lots of Bucks Fizz! Thank goodness Sue was there, I am not great at cooking on a large scale but she was a natural. You can also see Justine Balmer who came along too, couldn't get her to sing though, drat!
Also, last week Ali K, Pipa & I attended a fragrance course along with some the buying team at QVC. What a brilliant day, the event was hosted by master perfumer Roja Dove and I learnt so much about fragrance, its history and how the different elements all come together to make every fragrance so unique. I had the pleasure of working with Tova on-air not long afterwards and I am hoping I will get to host more fragrance shows soon on QVC.
One other thing, have you heard of AudioBoo? It's a recording system on the internet where you leave 'Boos' – I have signed up to it and I am going to be using it to answer the many questions I get about upcoming TSVs, skincare products and to share other happenings that I don't always get chance to on the blog, here is my first audio boo. I'll let you know when I have done more by Tweeting, Facebooking and mentioning it on my blog.
Ok, it's the famous 3 things!!
HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK: Being in my sunny garden at the brunch I did surrounded by people I love, lots of laughter and some good food. Who could ask for more?
FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: 'Handsome' fragrance by Tova – I have a new found passion for fragrance since doing the course and I have worn this fragrance every day this week and get so many wonderful compliments!
HAPPY THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: I hurt my back recently lifting weights and it's really taught me that as I am getting older its time to re-think the way I exercise and introduce more yoga, pilates and stretching in order to keep myself supple. Out of something seemingly negative like pain there is always a lesson to be learnt.
How has your week been? I would LOVE to hear YOUR 3 things.
Thank you for reading my blog, it is much appreciated.
As ever, sending big BIG hugs,
