Many of you will already be aware, if you watched Founder's Weekend, that QVC UK will be twenty this coming October. As you can imagine there are lots of things being planned to celebrate this momentous occasion, one of which is to have some of our celebrity guests and some of the presenters choose their favourite fifteen products.
When I was asked, my difficulty was not in finding fifteen products it was how to narrow it down, but I have done my best and here goes.
This is the Home and Away set so that I am never without it, at least that is the plan. I recently was down to my last one which I had inadvertently left at work and I was going to be off for three weeks. No problem I'll just order one, I thought, only to find out it was out of stock. I had to beg our lovely guest Sam to send me one and when it arrived, I texted her, "My lips say thank you!"
This is normal size although I usually order the supersize when it is available as I use this gorgeous orangey fragranced cleanser every morning to give my skin a really fresh look and feel.
This was my first and is still my favourite Liz Earle product. Who would have thought of making a toner that wasn't astringent and even has vitamin E in it!
This is the supersize of this hand cream which I keep by my bed and use every night. It might be a combination of good product and good genes but I still have no age spots on my hands even though I am fifty six and I love the sun.
L'Occitane Foot Cream – 216855
Unlike most foot creams, it has a beautiful lavender aroma rather than peppermint and it has a wonderful 'slip', perfect for a foot massage when I can persuade Chris!!
This again is the supersize. I like to use this to take my make-up off at night, but I also use it as a moisturising mask, leaving it on for around thirty minutes or so.
Up to this point all my favourites have been beauty products however I do buy lots of other things from QVC…. Where would I be without my…
I am currently on my third one, the 4 cord machine with the cardio board and the wider platform, and I've recently added the pull-up bar. It is an integral part of my fitness regime and so handy to jump on when I only have twenty minutes and I don't really feel like exercising… no excuses!!!
What a brilliant product. I am a little unstable in snow and ice because of the weakness in my left leg but these have given me confidence. I was so impressed I bought them for every member of my family and my daughter Sophie even runs in them.
This was my first B & W brooch although not my first piece of Simon's jewellery. I have the original clear option but I hear there may be a colour coming soon to celebrate our birthday that I am going to have to have!!!!!!! I've lost count of the number of times I have loaned this out to friends for special occasions.
I have two of these. I have the original white one, which I used to keep at my house in Spain, and the red one that splits so that you can use it as a handheld steamer too. I will never use an ordinary mop and detergent again… just love the power of steam.
I have lots of cook's essentials pans, including an egg poacher, frying pans and a buffet pan, but this set of saucepans is used every day in my household. The non stick is second to none.
I like lots of the Birkenstock designs but this particular style really suits my feet. With my large toe joint and high instep it is really difficult for me to find shoes that I like so, when I do, Chris always says I should get more than one pair. For once I listened and I'm happy to say I have 3 pairs of these, pink, white & black… so far!
Again I have a few pairs of Emu boots but this particular style seems to have more structure, although I did have to order down a size to a 3 instead of my normal 4. I have them in the chestnut colour.
If you've read my book, you will know from Chapter 29 that I have 29 of these beautiful handcrafted lamps but this is the only one of my collection that we currently have in the inventory.
And finally, and maybe surprisingly to those of you who know I am something of a technophobe, I LOVE my…
Chris always jokes that we have become attached at the hip (or should that be finger) and maybe he is right because I can't imagine how I managed without it!!
So these are fifteen of my favourite things from QVC and it set me wondering what yours might me? I realise fifteen is a lot so why don't you let me know your top three?
I hope you can join me for a special Fashion at Five today, it's our Summer Catwalk Show previewing the launch of our summer fashion event all day Sunday and Monday. We have some great new brands and some old favourites including Kim & Co which kicks the event off Saturday midnight, also with yours truly.
Much love, Julia xx
