Well we're now only about six weeks away from Christmas! The time goes so fast once we get past Halloween and Bonfire Night. I've been shopping for Christmas with QVC already but you can bet I'll still end up chasing my tail nearer the time! Always a mad scramble no matter how prepared you are.
Back to Halloween for a moment, though. Many of you know how much I adore New CID Cosmetics. Make-up artist, Mikey (pictured with me), is now one of my very good friends, and our mutual friend, actor Chris Clynes, was starring in a production of Dracula recently so a few of us went along to see him perform on Halloween night (here's a shot of his page from the programme, left).
It was incredible! Very atmospheric as it was staged in a very old church in London. There was an after show party where Mikey and I strutted our stuff on the dance floor. Our favourite was the now famous PSY "Whoop em Gangnam style" to which we performed all the moves! It was a very fun night.
As Bonfire Night itself was not on a weekend, one of my best friends, Dave, had a party at his house complete with fireworks galore. It was a fun night with lots of great friends and, thanks to my best chum, Mel, it was another chance to change hairstyles! She brought a bag of dress-up wigs with her which transformed all the guests! My other best friend, Mandy (left), was unable to join us for that so we had our own little do in my garden on the real bonfire night. No real fireworks but lots of sparklers. We enjoyed ourselves!
This Sunday is Big Brand Day on QVC! If ever your friends have mocked you for your love of QVC, wrongly thinking it's only about steam cleaners and faux diamonds, tell them to tune in on Sunday and they'll see what we're all about, with brands such as Bobbi Brown, Fenn Wright Manson, Breil Watches, Lulu Guinness, Vax and even Apple electronics! I'll be on from 9am so I hope you can join me for some fab Christmas shopping.
Keep well and warm (slankets are a must now the chill is in the air)
Love, Catherine xxx
