It’s time to Get Gorgeous this weekend


Murano Gold TSV ring I cannot believe the Get Gorgeous weekend is upon us! I love the concept of bringing you three days of beauty, fashion and jewellery, three of my favourite categories of products, to get you set for the summer that Richard Jackson has promised us this year!

It all kicks off with me at midnight on Thursday 13th May into Friday with a stunning TSV Murano Gold ring in a choice of three colours. If you haven't seen this range before it's all hand-crafted on the island of Murano near Venice and each piece contains 22ct gold foil. It has taken two artisans months of hard work to be able to bring you a TSV – I just hope we have enough to go round! Also on Friday you can enjoy Lulu, Nails Inc and Birkenstock.

I will be missing from my regular 5pm show on Friday so that I can join professional make-up artists Nina and Alison and be the first to show you the Smashbox TSV at midnight. I am a big fan of Smashbox make-up, particularly eyes and cheeks, both of which feature heavily in our Get Sexy, Tools of Seduction kit. I can't wait to get my hands on it, and Sophie my daughter can't wait to 'borrow' it!

Also on Saturday we'll be featuring Kipling handbags, Michelle Hope fashion and new sparkling Canadian Diamonds.

Julia and daughter Sophie Sunday is a big day for me. Not only will I be launching the Butler and Wilson TSV at midnight, a stylish and fashionable quilted handbag in a choice of 5 colours with Simon Wilson, I will also be bringing my mum, Josie and daughter Sophie 'on air' as part of our 'Mothers and Daughters' event.

My mum will be on during the 6pm Butler and Wilson show – she is so looking forward to meeting Simon and is already wondering what she should wear for the occasion. Sophie will be doing the 10pm show with Simon and I, and we'll probably be fighting over what to wear from the show. Ali Keenan has her daughter Lucy doing one of the three Elemis shows as well.

You've heard the expression 'Girls Night In', well this is more of a 'Girls Weekend In' and I really hope you enjoy all the goodies we'll be showing you…

Much love,

Julia xx

    Seen the Butler and Wilson Bag fromy my regular “Club” at Butler & Wilson email and it is absolutely fab, especially in the BRIGHT PINK & BRIGHT BLUE & I absolutely loooove the JEWELLED BAG CHARM.
    I have found out from Twitter that Simon has recently been to China & Hong Kong, so I am sure he will have many tales to “regale” from that.
    I can’t wait to see the presenters family members, basically because I am nosy and it gives a greater insight in to the presenters personalities and Alison & Julia regularly talk about them on air, (although I have already seen Julia’s daughter). The presenters relatives are so lucky getting “freer” access to QVC products and Julia regularly mentions that some of her products “mysteriously” go missing!!
    Good luck with the “GET GORGEOUS” event. I hope it is a great success and I am absolutely CERTAIN that Simon’s TSV will be a SUCCESS, (I predict an EARLY SELL OUT, so get your orders in early)!! Simons TSVs have been know to go in a record 15 MINUTES!!

    I agree with Rachel. I would love to be a relation of yours Julia lol !!! I keep seeing all the shows with audiences, and Im jumping about going ” how did they get there, I want to go too, big booohhooooo”
    Would be nice if QVC did a roadshow or something, I know there are events, but they always seem to be down South. Get up to Scotland!!!!!!!! When the weather is better Obviously!!!!!!

    Hi Julia
    Looking forward to seeing you and Sophie on the TV. Both my daughter and I LOVE Simon Wilson and you do make a great double act! It’s always fun watching you and Simon.
    Can you tell me the nail and make of the pink nail polish you always wear? You mentioned it a while back but I have forgotten. I would love to get some.
    Many thanks.

    Hi julia
    just watching your family show with Simon. he is a wee devil!!!
    I have to say, your Mum is just a lovely lady, she is modelling the TSV with Ali, and they both look so elegant.
    Im hooked, you naughty person. I just HAD to buy the pearl necklace and bracelet set. I was so lucky, the lady said I got the last one when I ordered it, phew!!!!!
    Love Una xx

    Hi Julia,
    How are you?
    Can you please tell me if the purple watch you were wearing today and the pink version yesterday the Gossip watches TSV that is coming up on Wednesday?

    Hi Julia
    Saw your 6.00pm show with Simon and your wonderful Mum…you are sooo lucky. I could definitely see the resemblance, especially your hands, when you Mum was modelling the TSV.
    Unfortunately didn’t have the courage to phone in and say hi (probably a Gemini thing!) as like yourself I don’t have a lot of confidence and am certainly not one to walk into a room first…I’d sooner run a mile, and if I could do that I’d be really fit!
    The thing that made me laugh was when your Mum said you kept moving back home…I did exactly the same thing having worked at Pontins for 3 seasons and whilst I was away, they moved to North Wales. The only difference was….they did tell me about it!
    Hope you all have a fantastic night together…something to treasure and look back on.
    love from one Roberts to another

    Hi Julia
    Soooo lovely to see your family on QVC tonight!
    I heard you saying that your daughter suffers from prickly heat? I’m a very pale redhead and prickly heat used to be such torture for me. I found that using a sensitive sun cream helped a lot (I use ultrasun now-there was a particular high street brand that made it worse!). Also using the homeopathic remedies Silica and Sulphur, helps a lot (they can be bought in the high street chemists) -start taking them about 2 weeks before holidays – carry on taking them throughout the holiday and for one week afterwards. I’ve never had prickly heat since using these remedies and I lived in Greece for 5 months!! Hope this helps xx

    Hi Julia , delightful show with your lovely Mum and Daughter and of course the one and only Simon, bought the TSV bag in cream think it will be perfect for my holiday in June and of course after too. Refreshing change to see family members on with you makes it so cosy somehow if you know what I mean.All good wishes ,Margaretxx

    Hi Julia, I just wanted to say that it was really nice to see your mum and Sophie at the weekend. What a glamorous trio you are. It really touched me, for some reason. Your mum seemed to enjoy herself too, how lovely for you all to be on air together. Best wishes to you, what is your secret – I heard you say you’ve lost some weight recently? Anyway, keep up the good work, it would be lovely to see more of your family again!

    Hi Julia,
    Missed your shows at the weekend as I was working but always look forward to you and Simon together. I saw you in several shows recently and in one show about 4/5 weeks ago you were wearing a beautiful black dress with an unusual design on front. The dress had three quarter sleeves and a lovely scoop neckline. As I am 5feet 4inches like you and about the same size and I also like similar style as you I just loved this dress and thought it would suit my style too. I checked on line as I thought it was possibly a Tiana B but have been unable to find it. So now I am asking you where you bought it as if it is a QVC dress I am having one.
    Hope you can help
    Kind Regards

    Hi Rachel
    Hope you enjoyed the Get Gorgeous Event? – what a great ‘girly’ weekend! Did you get your TSV bag and if so which colour? I think I liked the blue which is unusual for me as I am normally such a pinks and purples girl!
    Hope you enjoyed seeing Ali and my daughter and also my mum – she was very nervous at first but really enjoyed it and couldn’t stop talking about it afterwards!!!! – I think she is after my job!! Simon was lovely with her wasn’t he.
    much love

    Hello Una
    Thanks for both your posts – glad you enjoyed the show with my mum and thanks on her behalf for the compliments.
    I think a roadshow around the country is a great idea …… when exactly is the weather better in Scotland?? According to my sister you didn’t have a summer at all last year, or was that just south west Scotland LOL!
    You should write in to our Events Management team and see if they have any audience shows coming up ……. I’d quite like to host one too.
    speak soon

    Hi Silvana
    Hope you enjoyed all the Butler and Wilson shows yesterday? Did you get the TSV?
    The pink nail polish I was wearing yesterday is a Nails Inc one called Marylebone High St. but I do wear lots of different ones including OPI Aphrodite’s Pink Nightie.
    much love

    Hi Fiona
    Good spot ……… yes it is the Gossip Watches TSV on Wednesday. I was just talking to Pipa about it – she loves the sunshine yellow one and it also comes in white and I think blue. It is so reasonably priced I would recommend watching at midnight Tuesday/Wednesday as I think it will fly.
    I wonder which colour/s you will go for
    much love

    Hi Annette
    Glad you enjoyed the show but I wish you had rung in ……. next time maybe? I should set the record straight – I did know they were moving I just didn’t know exactly where to as communications in the mid seventies were not what they are now. I was on a cruise ship in the Caribbean and we only got our mail once a fortnight and mobile phones hadn’t even been dreamt of then! ……… found them eventually though!!!
    Mum really enjoyed her guest appearance and is very keen for a DVD – I was very proud of her, not many 83 year olds would have been that brave
    speak soon

    Hi Yvonne
    I’m pleased you enjoyed seeing Sophie and my mum on QVC last night – they both enjoyed themselves immensely.
    Thanks for your tips for Sophie’s prickly heat – my sister is very into homeopathy so I know it can have brilliant results if you find the right remedy. I’ll get some Silica and Sulphur so she can give it a try before we go away in early June
    much love

    Thanks for your kind remarks

    Sorry you missed the Get Gorgeous weekend – it was very popular so I’m sure we’ll do it again.
    The dress I was wearing was a Ronnie Nicholl but I’m not sure if we have any in stock at the moment. I know they have re-ordered but not sure when the stock is due in.
    much love

    HI Julia
    Had a great weekend your mum looked soooo sweet what a polite lady, she looks good for her age. You and sophie are like two peas in a pod, you looked so proud of her. Laura came over at weekend and smashbox was on so had to order auto delivery for her, she always say’s but ill pay you mam you can guess still waiting. Hope to see you all on again it was all relaxed.
    Love best wishes.

    Hi Julia
    I so wished that I had had the courage to phone in whilst your Mum was there, Chris kept saying he’d ring in for me, but he got the ‘Roberts look’ or shall I say glare!
    So glad the lack of communication was the reason for not knowing exactly where your parents had moved to.
    When I worked at Pontins there were no computers, so we were taking telephone bookings, filling in forms in longhand and passing them on to be allocated. You can imagine what it was like when somebody wanted to know there and then if their holiday was booked and you couldn’t tell them for sure. That’s why I really appreciate customer service!
    Glad your Mum and Sophie had such a good time.

    Hi Julia,
    I enjoyed what I saw of the event at the weekend – a popular one to be repeated I’m sure! I also get prickly heat though I tan like your daughter too. I swear by aloe vera. I’d give the homepathy a try too. Gosh you are a lucky duck getting away to the sun again!! I won’t be seeing any for a while!! And I’d love a tan!! I need to get myself a holiday house like you…well in my dreams lol!
    Take care

Your Mum is an inspiration – she’s a beautiful elegant lady – now we know where you got from !! Sophie you are just as gorgeous as I thougt you’d be. Julia thank you so much for sharing your wonderful family with us, your warmth, charm & sense of fun radiates over the airwaves. Hopeully we’ll see more of you all sometime soon.

    Hi Julia
    Thats a good idea. I will drop the team a wee note, and see what they think.
    You are so cheeky Miss Roberts. We DID have a summer last year. It was on July 2nd, I remember it well LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Your sister stays on Uist? These islands are gorgeous arent they? The beaches are amazing. My own sister lived there for a few years, and I loved to visit. Wasnt too keen on the ferry though!!!!!
    Love Una xx

    Hi Dorothy
    I’m pleased you enjoyed seeing Sophie and mum on the Butler and Wilson shows and thanks on their behalf for the compliments!! Sophie has got more like me the older she has got – but only looks wise, she has quite a different temperament!
    Glad you ‘treated’ your daughter to the Smashbox TSV – I love their eyecolours and the new pencil is lovely.
    much love

    Hi Susan
    We’ve tried Aloe Vera for Sophie’s prickly heat – it helps but not much. I am definitely going to try the homeopathic remedies for her combined with the tan accelerator – I hope it does the trick!
    I’m looking forward to the break in June but apparently we are due for a really hot weekend this weekend, so fingers crossed

    I was so chuffed with your comments about Sophie and my mum and they will be too!
    I think mum is an inspiration when you think she is 83 and she has been through Breast Cancer – I am very proud of her ….. well both of them of course!
    Mum would love to be on again …………..!!

    Hi Una
    I think it might have been a typo!! – my sister lives in south west Scotland near a beautiful place called Glentrool – do you know it?
    Mum and Dad lived on the Isle of Skye a few years back so I can relate to the ferry – it was before the bridge was built!!
    Here’s hoping for better weather this summer

    Well done you getting 2 of the TSV Gossip watches – I think you’ll love them!
    The glow I wear on my skin at the moment is the Laura Gellar Baked Body Glow – I checked for you and I don’t think the darker colour that I wear is in stock at the moment, but keep checking the website.
    Hope the wedding goes well

    Hi Julia
    Congratulations to your Mum for joining the show with Simon, she was lovely! I enjoyed all the shows -as usual – but that one was extra special –
    You must be disappointed by the poor reviews for the TSV bag , especially the number of people who found the bag charm arrived with stones falling out — what happened? I didn`t go for it myself in the end as it looked a bit small and I like to carry everything around —quite glad I made that decision now.
    Thanks for your note and glad Ginger`s Adventures found you!

    Hi Susan
    I didn’t get it yet – bit of a hectic week! Sophie went down to Wales to see her boyfriend this weekend and they were lucky enough to get to the beach on Saturday. She has come back with a tan and no prickly heat, but it usually kicks in 3 days into a holiday for some obscure reason. No beach for me, but sun loungers in the garden were almost as good – what a lovely weekend, shame it wasn’t Bank Holiday!
    I’ll keep you posted on the prickly heat issue
