A very busy few weeks!


New dressing roomHello!

Gosh, it’s been a few weeks since my last blog! I’ve been so ridiculously busy, but finally a day off and a chance to sit down with my laptop. I’m freelance, so as well as my two day a week contract with QVC, I spend a lot of time zooming around the country doing other presenter/journalist things.

This week alone I’ve been media training some senior Army officers in Buckinghamshire, filming an industry awards ceremony in London and helping prepare a news piece for a military exercise in Wiltshire. Plus, I’m writing a novel so any spare time has been spent dashing off a few more chapters of that. I love to be busy though, so it’s all good!

Perfect FormulaNow – let’s talk about nails. Mine are DREADFUL. Always have been. They break, split, flake, and do everything in fact other than look all nice, shiny and glossy at the ends of my fingers. It never really mattered too much before, as when I worked in news there were no hand close-ups. Now though, it’s a whole different ball game – EEK!

So, since I started at QVC I’ve been trying various products to try to improve my stupid nails. So far, no real joy, so I’m just keeping them short and nail-varnished and hoping for the best. However I’ve just got my hands on some Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat which has pretty good reviews on the QVC website and which a little bird tells me may be part of a Today’s Special Value item in the near future. I’m starting with it today – I’ll let you know how I get on.

UltrasunI’ve also been given some new Ultrasun sun cream to try. I bought some when I first arrived at QVC and took it on holiday to Barbados, and it was great. The new ones are different factors and formulations, so I can’t wait to try them. Although looking out of the window, I think I may be waiting a while…

In other news, my work-in-progress dressing room at QVC now has a proper mirror (pictured above). If you compare it to the picture I posted in an earlier blog, you can see the difference. Hurray!

That’s it for now – I promise I’ll blog again soon!


Have a lovely week.

Love Jackie x

    Hi Jackie, how busy are you!? You are superwoman! What’s in the water with prsenters and books though!? Had to tell you how amazing you looked in that dress with trinny and Susannah! Don’t ever say you’re flat cheated though! You aren’t! And I hate it when people go on about it like it’s a bad thing..not that ywdid. More so than when people talk about weight! Can’t add on boob if you aren’t blessed!! Keep up the good work! X

    So nice to see you back on screen again, this presenting on QVC is very you. I used to watch GMTV or TVAM can’t remember which, I stopped when they had the reshuffle a couple of years ago when Penny John Andrew et al were axed.
    Love your hair too, so nice to see a trendy short hairdo.

    Hi Jackie,
    Me again! I’m just catching up on your blogs and I came across the one of your GORGEOUS bedroom! It is divine. Just wanted to tell you that! And not surprised you’ve bought so much already…esp with the discount no doubt!!
    Love Susan x

    Hi Susan! You are right, we are all too hung up on body shape and it is very silly! Yes I really liked that dress, I like a lot of their clothes. As for the book, I started it over four years ago when I left GMTV…one of these days I will get it finished! Thanks for getting in touch!
    Love Jackie x

    Welcome to Qvc Jackie it’s a pleasure watching your shows,hope your settling in and finding your feet.
    I heard you mention you’d like a QVC Blackberry app during one of your presentations,I would also find that useful too.
    I dare say we aren’t the only two QVC Blackberry uses, Jackie.
    Are you able to encourage QVC to provide one for us please?
    Fingers crossed that you can help Kathryn.

    Hi Sue
    So glad you like the fleece bedding, I am totally addicted to it! I had never seen it before until I came to QVC. Not sure I will ever sleep in anything else during winter months now!
    Love Jackie x
