I hope you are all well and enjoying our progress towards longer, lighter days and warmer temperatures.
The winter can seem long and never-ending at this time of year, and I think it's because we have so many dull, dreary days.
I was lucky enough to enjoy a skiing holiday a couple of weeks ago and although it's obviously a cold holiday, if you are lucky with the weather and see blue skies and sunshine, there is no environment more uplifting and invigorating.
We arrived to temperatures of around minus 20degrees but were well equipped with gear from Trespass, with cosy fleece tops to wear under specialised ski trousers and jackets that I ordered through the Trespass website.
The snow and skiing were the best I have ever experienced, better even than when I travelled to Breckenridge in America to make a film for the BBC Holiday programme. One advantage was that the resort was quiet, even though it was British half term.
After an incredibly cold but sunny start to the week, Wednesday brought a day of snow to give us the most sublime skiing conditions for the end of the week. Our last day saw skies the colour of the sleeping beauty turquoise that will feature as our today's special value on silver day this Tuesday,13 March.
Startling, pure, cloudless blue. Perfect to ski under, but also a stunning colour for jewellery. It's a stone found in just one mine so the amount we have is always restricted – the TSV earrings may not even last to the Morning Show, but I will be bringing you a gorgeous ring featuring the same stone, at a special silver day price of well under £40.
I hope you can join me at 9am for a Morning Show that will bring a selection from the whole day of stunning silver jewellery. I may even buy the ring to remind me of how lucky I was to enjoy the perfect skiing holiday!
