Lakeland kitchen and homeware will be launching this week at QVC UK, and we couldn’t be more excited! This is the perfect time of year for sprucing up your home.
There’s no need to wait until Wednesday 24th August to see the launch show, we’ve put together a preview of some of the most exciting pieces from the range for you lucky readers.
We’ve also sat down with lovely guest and Lakeland expert, Wendy Miranda, to find out more about her, including her experience in haymaking and her top tips for the home. Wendy will be joining Jackie Kabler at 7pm on Wednesday 24th to expertly demonstrate the products.
Six-piece baking set
Ever wondered how to make spherical cakes? Lakeland have the answer! This collection includes two moulds, an icing set , an anti-gravity cake pouring kit and two cooling racks. Showstopper cakes such as this ladybird pair are within your reach thanks to this baker’s dream set!
Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of a remoska, neither had we. It turns out it’s just a really innovative one pot cooker that can be used to cook anything from roast chicken to toasted sandwiches, and even bake cakes! There’s a recipe book included to provide you with plenty of inspiration for how to use this little wonder, check out Jackie Kabler’s latest blog for a closer look.
We really like the idea of making our own jams and preserves, but it’s always felt like a little bit too much work. Well, this is no longer the case thanks to this handy collection, featuring a stainless steel pan with a specially designed base to prevent sticking. If anyone tries this set out, please let us know what flavours you’ve created.
Meet Wendy Miranda:
QG: What was your first job?
WM:Haymaking. The lads insisted I drive the tractor instead of stacking bales because I was a girl! My first ‘real’ Saturday job was at Lilley & Skinner – perfect for someone with a passion for shoes.
QG: If you weren’t in your current profession, what do you think you would be doing instead?
WM: I am incredibly lucky to have a job that I enjoy so much. I love the day to day contact I have with our customers and I’m also involved in product selection and product development as well, I really enjoy this diversity. I am very interested in herb and plant extracts and their uses so maybe some kind of herbalist. The team tell me I should be some kind of investigator as I need to find out the reasons for everything!
QG: Where have you visited in your life that took your breath away?
WM: I am fortunate to live in the Lake District and something takes my breath away every day, it’s a truly special place.
QG: What’s the one achievement you’re most proud of?
WM: My son Ashton, he is following his dreams, enjoying life to the full but still calls his Nana once a week to make sure she is okay.
QG: What are your top tips for realising your goals in business or in life?
WM: Give it a go, the worst that can happen is that it doesn’t work out – you’ll learn loads along the way. Always treat others how you would like to be treated yourself and lead by example.
QG: What’s your top home tip?
WM: Little and often keeps everything under control. Find products that do the hard work for you!
QG: If you could travel back in time, which era would you visit and what would you do?
WM: 1920’s – I would like to meet my grandparents and great grandparents. I wouldn’t stay long – life was a lot harder back then.
QG: What three things would you bring to a desert island?
WM: An incredibly large book that I could read over and over, Earl Grey tea and a lilo to escape after the novelty of me-time had worn off.
QG: If you were facing a zombie apocalypse, which three QVC presenters would be on your survival team?
WM: This is our first time on QVC so I don’t know. What I do know is that everyone I have come into contact with at QVC is just lovely. Everyone is warm, friendly and always ready to help.
