Firstly, I just thought I’d remind you that you just about have time to enter my Christmas competition (get all the details here), but hurry – the deadline is mid-day December 10th!
Meanwhile, it’s been a busy couple of weeks with all the usual end of term shows, Christmas concerts and music exams that suddenly seem to come all at once. It was also my daughter’s 13th birthday, but she has been away with her school on a netball tour in Leicestershire so not seeing her on her actual birthday felt very weird indeed.
In fact, I was in the studio at midnight on her birthday and received a super hug from Veronica backstage, who knew I wasn’t going to see Cassidy, which I thought was lovely, and thanks to the help of the hotel staff where she was staying I managed to conjure up a few surprises to make her day special.
As Christmas draws even closer, I thought I’d turn my gifting thoughts to the younger members of the family and come up with my top three QVC toys for Christmas.
This a great gift, and it’s currently on Easy Pay installments! This is the glow in the dark version, with a loop the loop and two light up cars, and it’s so colourful that girls as well as boys will love it. Plus, you can add extra track and more cars if you so choose.
This is fabulous, every little girls dream. A handheld microphone, separate microphone complete with stand, karaoke machine with speaker and set of headphones all themed in Disney’s Frozen which just happens to be my all time favourite Disney film.
This is the ultimate toy for all ages and trust me – everyone, young and old, will be fighting over it on Christmas day. It’s a battery operated light up console that you can play several games on either against the pad or each other, and it’s so well priced and totally addictive. Also check out the handheld versions which come as a set of two!
While you’re busy shopping for toys, why not have a think about what you’d fancy for Christmas! If you or anyone on your gift list is thinking about a new handbag, tune in at midnight on Thursday as I’ll be launching an amazing Today’s Special Value offer from Lulu Guinness.
I’ve been using the handbag for the last week, and I must admit I have fallen in love with it. I even took it for lunch today! The bag is called Paula (my new best friend) and has been exclusively been designed just for us in five gorgeous colours. Everywhere I have been this week people have commented on how gorgeous it is. Even my daughter was so impressed I was carrying a Lulu Guinness bag when we eventually went out to celebrate her birthday – apparently I was very ‘on trend’, especially as I went for the stunning plum colour!
So, good luck with your toy shopping and see you midnight on Thursday for a taste of luxury!
