It’s been a very busy week for me, which started with a rare night out in Clapham last Friday. I met up with some QVC colleagues, both past and present, for my friend Natalie’s leaving do. She actually left QVC several months ago but it has been quite a challenge finding a date when we were all available, and then she organised it for the night of the England v Scotland World Cup qualifier! And she’s a football fan.
Fortunately we were in a private area of the venue that had a huge flat screen TV, and they allowed us to have the match on on mute. It was a good win for England and I hope it will cement Gareth’s position as England manager. I only had one eye on the football though, as it was good to catch up with former colleagues, some of whom I haven’t seen for years. Do you recognise our lovely model Sally in the picture?
Of course it was very busy at QVC over the weekend, particularly with the Elemis Today’s Special Value. I hope you have all received yours by now and are enjoying using it. This weekend it is the turn of Keeley’s friend Fiona, with the Decleor Today’s Special Value. I’m sad to be missing her but I really do need the weekend off after working the last three.

So, having gone out socialising on Friday, I was out again on Wednesday after my shift at QVC.
This time, I headed up to London with Debbie Flint for the Romantic Novelist’s Association winter party. Sophie also came along to the party and we had a lovely dinner in Chiswick afterwards before heading home.
I am still quite new to the RNA, so don’t know too many people, and I found myself peering at people to see if I recognised them from their photos on Twitter.
Speaking of Twitter, I have made a slight adjustment to my Twitter username… it’s now @JuliaRobertsTV, very similar to my Facebook page.
Two nights out in one week – I’ll need a lie down at some point this weekend, but not until after the Palace match tomorrow.
It will be my first game of the season and we’ve been on a bit of a slide recently, but I’m still hopeful of three points against Man City – keep everything crossed for me.
Well, there was no Fashion on Friday today because of the Christmas Food Event. If you love our QVC fashion, our QVC Style channel now has a Look of the Week:
It will feature live on the channel at 4pm every weekday, and it changes on a weekly basis.
Fashion on Friday is back next week and I’ll be able to tell you about some special shows in that time slot for December.
I’m hoping to get some words done over the next few days – check out the blog on my website for the latest information and to receive my newsletter.
Have a great weekend,
