As part of QVC’s 20th birthday celebrations, we’ve got a whole host of presenters, guests, bloggers and celebs lined up to give you their top 20 QVC products. Here are mine (it was very hard to narrow it down to just 20!) –
1 – Bose portable iPod SoundDock – I love my music and with my SoundDock I can enjoy all the music, books, plays and lectures I have on my iPhone and iPod.
2 – cooks essential’s jug saucepan – I use this pan every day, it’s great for soups, stir-fries and even porridge – nothing sticks and it’s a doddle to clean.
3 – Kelly Hoppen Paisley 700 thread count duvet set – luxurious and decadent, not only does it make my bedroom look chic, it’s a dream to sleep in.
4 – Camouflage Company storage tray – I love the blue gingham pattern and it’s great to being organise around the home and when out in the garden.
5 – Samsung 32" LCD TV – I’m not a huge TV fan but I love keeping up with QVC when I am not in the building and I do get quite into these big shows like The Apprentice and The Great British Bake Off, you can’t beat putting your feet up in front of the telly.
6 – Yankee Candle 'Clean Cotton' - Yankee is my favourite candle brand (no surprise to anyone!) and I love so many of the fragrances but there is something about Clean Cotton which just makes it top of my list. I love the fragrance when I am at home, particularly if I am tidying or doing paperwork. The smell reminds me of summer holidays in the West Country and running through the clean white sheets after they had come out of my mum's twin tub!
7 – Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial – Sarah’s skincare is so high performance and I love this treatment product, I am always amazed at how awake and glowing my skin looks the morning after I use it. I also occasionally add it to my day cream to give that an extra boost, particular in harsh winter days.
8 – Emma Hardie Moringa Balm – wow, what can I say about the all conquering Moringa balm!!? I actually have 10 ways of using it – to find out what they are – listen here.
9 – Decleor Aromaessence Solaire – I love sunbathing and this dry oil from Decleor gives my skin a healthy glow as well as encouraging a long-lasting, deep bronze tan.
10 – L'Artisan Parfumeur La Traversee du Bosphore – I was asked by the buyers to write a piece about this fragrance, this is what I said:
I discovered this fragrance at a masterclass with L'Artisan Parfumeur expert Florian; I was immediately transported to memories of being on holiday in Turkey. The smell of fresh fruit and flowers from the narrow street markets combined with warm exotic spices nestling in huge hessian sacks. I remember squeezing and inhaling the fragrance of quality leather bags and shoes whilst noticing how the delicate fragrance of rose and almond Turkish delight wafted around me. Rich, gourmet and seductive, that is why I love La Traversee du Bosphore.
11 – Spacemate Space Bags – I am a Virgo, I like stuff organised, I am also seriously short on storage space just having a small ground floor flat – these bags mean I can store winter clothes, bedding and even my spare featherbed with ease!
12 – Oreck vacuum – I am not the biggest fan of housework but being a Virgo (see above!) I like things clean. With my Oreck I can keep on top of vacuuming and keep those dust bunnies at bay!
13 – Prepology spatulas – I use at least 1 or 2 of these everyday – stir-fries, porridge, scrambled eggs, cake decorating – these are great!
14 – Kelly Hoppen paisley bedspread – I use this with and without the paisley duvet set mentioned above and during these hot nights I am finding just a sheet and this bedspread is perfect!
15 – Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish – oh and we are talking!! I love this cleanser, I cannot ever imagine not having at least 2 of these on the go at any one time. Whether it’s removing the pollution of the city or taking make-up off, Cleanse & Polish does it beautifully and leaves my skin looking soft and fresh, I can see why it just keeps on winning awards after all these years!
16 – Links of London Team GB friendship bracelet – I know the Olympics was last year but I still wear my bracelets from Links – they remind me of the great summer we had and I think the style is really funky.
17 – It Works! Orange Oil – I use this on wood, stainless steel and the high gloss furniture in my bedroom – it makes everything gleam!
18 – Liz Earle Superskin – ok, I know this is a full range but I am doing the oil and the moisturiser here – I have quite good skin anyway but when I step up to Superskin I really notice the difference, my skin just glows with health.
19 – Elemis Quiet Mind Bath Soak – I sometimes find doing shift work and late nights my body clock can go into disarray, this wonderfully aromatic and relaxing bath soak just seems to help me drift off and relax.
20 – Relax Master dual control king size bed!! – ok, I am not lucky enough to have one of these but I would SOOO love one; comfortable, beautifully made and all British, when I grow up this is the bed I want!
