I'm thrilled to bring you the very first look at February's jewellery icon before it goes to air! More on that in a moment in my new 'blog reveal'.
It's been a non-stop few days for me. Last Saturday was a day off. I woke fairly late in the morning, checked out the weather and decided, there and then, to do a quick day trip with the dogs to the Isle of Wight!
When I say quick day trip, it was lightening fast! I was on the Island for less than two and a half hours! But it was worth every minute. The hovercraft touched down in Ryde and I was met by my amazing Mum. We walked the dogs along Ryde seafront, grabbed a bite to eat before hopping on the hover to head back home! Thanks so much to Mum for lunch. I always like to treat her but she was really insistent this time… There was a look in her eye on this occasion – I didn't dare argue!
I did well to leave early. When I arrived home the heavens opened and the ferocious gusts of wind were incredible. It only lasted a matter of minutes but it was enough to damage our fence and lift our eleven foot trampoline off the ground and move it several feet across the garden. It was an astonishing sight, if a little nerve racking. Thankfully things soon settled.
It was back to work on Monday (having been thrashed at badminton by my son on Sunday!) with a fabulous 3 hour Gem Clearance with Claire. Other than the topic of gems you never quite know what will come up in conversation. I certainly didn't expect this!!
It was great to be back with Destination Gems the following day. Hopefully we'll see it on our screens again soon. Mark Walker is a charming guest, his knowledge and experience in jewellery is second to none.
I'm also really looking forward to launching the Miele Today's Special Value this Sunday 2nd Feb at midnight. I've been lucky enough to be trying the cylinder vacuum out. The results are incredible and the suction is so powerful. I can't wait for the demonstrations.
I'm also launching the very next night. After all that house work it'll be time to snuggle down with our Cozee Home Today's Special Value… Brilliant, I get to sleep on the job!
If you enjoy watching my jewellery hours you'll know how I love to 'reveal' the jewellery. Hence the 'Gem Reveal' in Destination Gems! Well, on that note, I'm thrilled to be the very first to reveal our Jewellery Icon for February. It's your chance to see it here before it goes to air. You can even order it too, and if you'd rather call us than order online it's the usual number – 0800 50 40 30.
We'd love your feedback on how we've filmed this. We have an incredibly talented team in production who manage to create 17 hours of live transmission every day. Well, for this presentation they flexed their creative minds even more. Do tell us what you think – we thrive on your feedback. This 'blog reveal' is this iconic Links of London bracelet for the month of February. I think it's gorgeous and there is so much sterling silver. Enough written, I'll let the video tell the rest!

Take care and see you soon,
P.S. just for fun, here's the return of guess the picture! Answer next week!
