So, summer finally gets going and I've been loving the weather over the past week or so. The joys of working odd shifts is that sometimes you get a few days off midweek.
This week hubby took a couple of days holiday so we were both off together. We zoomed down to Cornwall to have a quick catch up with some family and also to cycle the Camel Trail.
Have any of you done it? It's a fabulous, 18-mile recreational trail for cyclists, runners and walkers that runs between Padstow and Wenfordbridge via Wadebridge and Bodmin. It takes you through some beautiful Cornish countryside, from stunning coastal paths to forest tracks.
Of course, as 18 miles wasn't enough for us (why, I ask myself?!) we decided to do it both ways and somehow managed to get a bit lost in Bodmin.
By the end of the day we had covered 44 miles in total, slightly more than planned! It was great, but if I ever tell you I'm off on a long cycle again, could somebody please remind me to either get padded cycling shorts or a softer saddle. OUCH is all I'm saying…!
Hope you're enjoying Beauty Month on QVC. We've had some fantastic shows already with lots more to come. Did you hear that our lovely Leighton Denny has been awarded an MBE for services to the nail and beauty industries?
Not bad for a lad who started his working life as a fork-lift truck driver. We're all chuffed to bits for him. I have a show with him and the lovely Nina on Thursday 26th June so am looking forward to congratulating him in person then.
Speaking of nails, I'm delighted to be presenting an OPI show on Saturday 21st June, which will see the launch of an exciting collaboration with The Coca-Cola Company.
Several of the most well-known drinks – including Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke, Sprite and Fanta – will be the inspiration for a line of limited edition nail colours.
Something very different and I reckon they'll fly out- so don't miss the show!
Staying with beauty- L'Occitane fans, brace yourselves! There is an amazing Today's Special Value coming up on Sunday 22nd June - here is a little sneaky photo!
Looks fabulous, doesn't it? Let me know what you're loving about Beauty Month – you can always get in touch by leaving a comment under this blog or by saying hello on Twitter (I'm @jackiekabler). See you soon!
