Well as I mentioned on my last blog I have a few days off, but I didn't mention that I was lucky enough to be invited to travel with a friend to Canada! I think you might recognise the friend in question, Jaynie Roberts, who brings 'Slim n Lift' to QVC.
We sometimes meet up in Spain as her sister owns a restaurant in the same area as my house and we've become good pals. But I must admit I was suprised to get an email a couple of weeks ago asking me if I'd like to join her on a trip to Canada where she was to be doing some filming for a new 'Slim n Lift' product the Aire Bra… I do hope we are going to be getting it on QVC!
How could I refuse – I've never been to Canada before and Niagara Falls is definitely on my 'to do' list! So here I am enjoying an unexpected experience.
Yesterday we went into Toronto to visit the CN Tower, which used to be the tallest building in the world and I must confess I don't have the greatest head for heights. It's so tall that your ears 'pop' in the lift on the way up!
The views over Toronto are spectacular but the bit I wasn't so keen on was walking on the glass floor! Of course you don't have to do it, but my daughter Sophie did when she visited on a sports tour with her school, so I just had to conquer my fears!
You can see down to the ground below – equivalent in height to a 116 storey apartment building. Thank goodness Jaynie took a photo of me – proof that I did it, cos I can hardly believe it myself!
We then went to a lovely restaurant that Jaynie knows for dinner and you'll never guess who was sat at the next table… Colin Farrell! We had seen them doing some filming downtown but had no idea what or who, and then he turned up in the same restaurant!
We even had fun getting home. The ticket office in the subway was closed and we didn't have enough change to buy the tickets from the machine so I stopped a 'local' to ask if they could change us a note for some coins. Instead the chap said he'd swipe us through with his pass, but he could only do it once… have you got a visual image of us squeezing through the turnstile together – it was hysterical!
Friday we are planning to visit Niagara Falls before flying back – hopefully I'll be able to get some great photos to share with you.
My only regret about coming is that I am missing some brilliant shows and TSVs on QVC – Tiana B, Elemis… I could go on!
Have a great weekend and see you on Tuesday,
Love Julia xx
