Hello! Well, as 2015 draws to a close I wanted to share my highlights of of the year from both my life in and outside of QVC.
JANUARY – I hosted the premier of show of Comfortaire beds, one of which I still sleep on now; the most comfortable bed ever!
My mum’s birthday – a trip to Bristol to celebrate with her.
FEBRUARY – some lovely bright days in February shown here on my balcony with the Bethlehem Lights Today’s Special Value lantern, and a lovely river walk with my friend and QVC colleague Justine Balmer.
MARCH – I encouraged you on my blog to take part of ‘Mindful March’ and also co-hosted a broadcasting diversity event at the BBC in Manchester. I even made it as the ‘cover boy!’
APRIL – I joined Alison Young at the annual CEW awards, got to interview Lulu about her new album and chat to Calum Best about his book at QVC. I also visited one of my favourite buildings in London, the Walkie Talkie, for the first time – what a view!
MAY – I joined a few of the other QVC presenters to see Lulu at her brilliant concert and I enjoyed some partying with my friend and colleague Chloe in Ibiza!
JUNE – The Lunchtime Show was in full swing by now and was such fun to be involved with – love this pic of Chloe and I having fun as we always do. It was also an honour to meet Euguenie – the winner of the auction for Breast Cancer Care – to help her enjoy her QVC experience. What a wonderful lady!
JULY – a nice time in Nice with my mum. It was a truly wonderful seven days of quality time with her, along with much-needed sunshine and relaxation! I also discovered Z-pacs at QVC – oh, how they changed my packing life!
AUGUST – how special to celebrate 20 years of Tova at QVC with a special event at the Ritz! Tova is the most glamourous, loving lady; she is truly a hollywood legend. I also welcomed my sister and nieces to London where we had plenty of fun together – all smiling here at the top of the Walkie Talkie!
SEPTEMBER – my birthday! I love this month and used #LoveSeptember on Twitter to share with you why. I even wrote a poem! I also had the opportunity to co-host the QVC Beauty Excellence Awards and attended my Ibiza friends Solenn and Gary’s wedding. Mwaaah!
OCTOBER – treated to the most incredible facial I think I have ever had at Murad. My skin afterwards was glowing! And seeing Justine Balmer in her one woman show – what a talent! I also had a family holiday to Cyprus with my family which was pure joy!
NOVEMBER – I interviewed Anastacia at QVC! What a woman and what a voice – we were all so starstruck! I also got to do some modelling for the new men’s fashion ranges we introduced at QVC, and excitement built as we all chose #TeamOrchid or #Team Frangipani for the BIG Elemis TSV!
DECEMBER – busy-busy at QVC with so much going on! I was privileged to once again host the Miller Harris Christmas show and of course we got to spend time together as presenter team for our Christmas lunch.
Well, that was 2015 – what a year! So wonderful to look back, reflect and feel so blessed to have enjoyed another year at QVC.
Hope you like the pics and do post a comment telling me what your own highlights have been!
Hugs and love for a happy, healthy 2016!
