I’ve been let loose on a beauty show!


Hello, I hope you're week has got off to a good start. I have an issue which I've asked you about before… which I need your advice on again!  I'll come onto that in a minute! 

Keeley from Elemis First I'd like to mention… I've been let loose on a beauty show! I'm thrilled. It's this Sunday morning at 10am with Elemis. This luxury brand of skincare is out of this world.

Elemis feature some of the finest active ingredients from nature to create the most wonderful products. What a great line up we have for you. 

We start the show with a hot pick (one of the star products of the day). We also have a kit for men which will make a perfect Father's Day gift. I bought my brother-in-law an Elemis kit for his birthday and he particularly loves the shave gel.

There's a surprise in the show too! I'm in safe hands throughout as I will of course be guided by our special guest Keeley. 

On to my dilemma in a moment, but while I remember, I have a brand new show the day before on Saturday at 2pm. Canadian Diamonds! I've had a preview of the designs and they are out of this world.

Interestingly Canada is now the worlds third largest supplier of diamonds, yet the first deposits were discovered quite recently (compared to much of the world) in 1991. Each piece comes with a certificate and a lovely finishing touch of a maple leaf engraved inside…really beautiful.

Ok, that dilemma!  You may recall a while ago I asked if I should dye my greying hair, which is starting to come through. I think every response was against me getting out that bottle of dye.  However, the grey is coming through even more now and I'm now rethinking the idea of dye.

I bumped into Glen Campbell (our fashion expert on QVC) and he says I need to let my hair do it's own thing and leave the bottle of dye unopened…I'm not so sure – any ideas? The dye does have quite an appeal right now!

While I ponder on that, you take care and hopefully I'll see you with Canadian Diamonds at 2pm on Saturday 15th May and then Elemis on Sunday 16th May at 10am.

Best wishes,

    Hello Charlie, don’t you dare dye your hair! It looks great.
    I have mouse brown hair and my hair has been going grey for the past 24 years or so. In fact I keep wishing it would hurry up and go all grey. I have blue eyes and grey hair goes brilliantly with them. I can’t remember what colour your eyes are but I am sure they are a light colour. Grey hair is not ageing. If you have a good hair cut which suits you it looks brilliant.
    This is, obviously, only my opinion but I hope it helps. What does your other half say?
    Hugs (bear collector so everyone gets these)

    Just think what you may be starting, its the upkeep of these changes that ties you down,please think it through carefully as it can be a real burden and rarely looks natural.We may not say it too often that is not to say we dont think it. Take your partners advice if she is happy then thats what matters.
    Good Luck.

    Hi Charlie – i’m really looking forward to your Elemis debut show i’m sure you’ll be great – you present the fashion shows really well always asking the right questions and giving the sizes as quickly as you can!! In the early days of QVCUK Paul Lavers(James’s dad) used to present some of the “In the Salon” shows with Ali Young – they were hillarious but always had good balance between fun and business – i loved them. I hope you have a great time – Keeley will look after you. I’ll be watching and no doubt buying!! Best Wishes Linda
