Hope everyone who was celebrating Mother's Day had a wonderful one. I wasn't able to be with my mum sadly, as she lives in Ireland, but as I mentioned in my previous blog one of my sisters and I bought her a present that we were EXTREMELY excited about handing over. It was… drum roll… a Coronation Street tour! Aaaaaghh!
We are all massive Coronation Street fans and have been as long as I can remember, so when I heard they were doing tours of the set for a limited period I just had to book us up. Mum was absolutely thrilled to bits, and my sister and I can't wait too!
Therefore, in August we'll be flying mum over to Manchester, for a couple of days in a nice hotel to do the tour, plus some shopping and other girly delights. We're so excited at the prospect of walking along the famous cobbles and stopping off at the Rovers. There's more information about the tour here, if you're as big a fan as me:
Talking of girly delights, I've been getting a sneaky peek at a gorgeous bracelet that will be a Today's Special Value offer here at QVC on Tuesday 8th April. I know some of you have already noticed me wearing it on-air and have been asking about it. It's from Aurora and it's a friendship bracelet. I won't reveal too much more now but here is a photo of just two of the gorgeous colour options. Join me at midnight on Monday for the launch!
There is also another stunning jewellery range launching at QVC in April – it's called Love Rocks, and we have all been oohing and aahing over it! Here's a picture of a couple of pieces – I'm in love with the huge ring. Look out for the range soon.
I do love the fun we have on air at QVC – I always find myself doing something I never thought I'd do, especially after working in news for so many years where I had to be very serious all the time! Last week, for example, I found myself on air wearing a pair of bunny ears (pictured above).
I'm still not sure exactly why, to be honest – but our lovely fashion designer guest Antthony was in a silly mood and decided that as Easter was coming up, he was the fashion Easter bunny, and so we should both go on air in bunny ears. Mad, but hilarious. I've got used to doing bizarre things like putting on pyjamas and slippers to go on air during nightwear shows, so I suppose bunny ears is just one more step in this QVC journey!
That's it for this week. As always, feel free to leave a comment under this blog or say hello on Twitter – I'm @jackiekabler.
Lots of love,
