Returning to QVC

54

Really delighted to be asked back to cover Pipa while she takes a break! The time has gone so fast!

My 'bump' turned into beautiful Caspar, who is now 3.5yrs  I've done a couple of plays in London and some TV & radio since he was born, but am really thrilled to be back with so many old friends and new faces as I catch up with what QVC's been up to.

And it seems that it's also been very busy! Becoming the World's best and largest television retailer, moving to its new home in the stunning Richard Rogers-designed Chiswick Park – I love the new building!! – and having more new and exciting brands than ever.

I'm so looking forward to being back in touch with all of you at home. Thinking of Audrey, Silvia and Carole, to name but a few, and hoping you might write back and share any news you all have. How are you all? How have these last four years been for you I wonder?

I'd love your support for my first shows, which will be on Thursday 19th -  a shared Diamonique show with Simon at 11am – looking forward to catching up with the finest dazzle the world knows, short of real diamonds – Nails Inc at 12 noon, which has a simply unbelievable Today's Special Value.

Then on Friday I'll be with you for the professional make-up artists's favourite, Laura Geller, at 11am – in fact, we've just done the Christmas shoot and, sure enough, our amazing make-up artists, Lauren and June, had plenty of Laura Geller they chose to use during the shoot.

After that we'll be snuggling up for Carole Hochman Heavenly Sleepwear at 12noon and 3pm with again, as you might expect, one of the best value, three-piece sets I've seen since in a while – perfect for these chilly Autumn days we're having.

Please send me your news here and join me on my first shows back…

Sending much love and thank you for some of the lovely messages and support I've already received on Twitter too… Sara x

    Hi Sara!
    I’m delighted to hear you are returning to QVC. Welcome back!
    The last time I saw you, you were being wrapped in a huge, gorgeous Dennis Basso coat
    By the gentleman himself!.. And you’ve only just missed him this month..
    The last 4 years have not been good for me. I’ve been forced to take Ill Health Retirement and my health continues to deteriorate. You all on QVC are great company. You have no idea how you brighten my day!
    I’m really looking forward to the return of the Saturday gift shows. Dale this week apparently. I hope John Barrowman will be able to fit us in. He’s such fun!
    Yes, there have been huge changes to QVC stock.. (Not all for the better I must say)
    Have you seen the exquisite Lulu Guinness bags? .. Nothing wrong with my eye for style!
    Maybe you will get a chance to meet her today. How exciting!
    I got her Summer TVS Anabelle lips bag in red/hot pink for all my medical paraphernalia I have to carry round with me. SO much better than the black medical bag supplied. Cheered me up no end.Thank you Lulu!
    I’m looking forward to seeing you back onscreen at lunchtime Sara… A dear friend returning.. Lovely
    Rose

    Best Wishes Sara ….glad you are back….you might like to stay?
    you always had a sincere believable genuine attitude and voice when selling
    which I think is a rarity and important to us buyers
    Good Luck… Violet

    Hi Sara,
    Welcome back! I saw you on Nails Inc and it’s like you’ve never been away – you are completely professional and relaxed on screen. Pipa is fab but it’s great to have you back even for a while!
    All the best,
    Beth XX.

    Welcome back Sarah. Lovely to see you return.
    When I saw on show before you always dressed so nice.
    Can I ask which brands you shop mainly for clotthes and shoes.
    Also can I ask how tall you are and what size shoe you take?

    Dear Rose,
    Finally I have a few days off and wanted to reply to all the lovely messages I was sent! Thank you so much for yours. I am enjoying being back more than I ever imagined & catching up with friends old and new. You might have seen I just missed Dennis basso again, although I did see him off air before his show and he was absolutely lovely. We both said how much we were looking forward to a show together again. I always loved being on with him. I visited him once when in New York some years ago, which was great fun, to see him in his own environment.
    Sorry to hear you’ve had a challenging time with health things! You certainly sound as if you approach it in the most positive way possible. I think a Lulu Guiness bag for medicaments is a genius idea! :-) I don’t actually have one, as have not treated myself to date, but I always remember being very tempted and enjoyed the shows I did with her before I left. I know she hadn’t been there too long at that point, but is now a huge favourite – lovely to think everyone is treating themselves…I really must have a good look next time!
    I do hope you’ve caught some of my shows back Rose and that I’m getting back in to the swing of it for you :-) Lovely to hear from you on here and count yourself a dear friend I’m returning to when I’m on air! My twitter – if you tweet – I didn’t much, but am actually really enjoying being able to chat so easily to viewers is @SGQVC if you get the urge to try it at some point! Much love, and stay positive, it’s wonderful. Sara x

    Hi Beth, thanks for your kind words! I was actually so nervous those first few days, but had to just ‘jump in’ for the Nails Inc show :-) but really enjoyed it! I had quite a bad throat the past 2 weeks, which made talking a bit of a struggle, (!) but seems better now, so hope am nearly back in the flow after this first month. Am certainly really loving it and so happy to hear from you!

    Hi Margaret,
    Thanks for the message! I had great fun trying lots of new brands when i got back. So I picked from Fenn Wright & manson, Trinny & Susannah and quite a few pieces from Ronni Nicole…
    I am 5’5″ tall and shoe 38! If that helps at all… Really loving being back – thanks for the support

    Hi Susan, yes, that would be fun! I must find a pic or bring one on air maybe at some point…?!
    I’ve been a bit resistant putting pics anywhere on the internet as it’s amazing where they end up, but will think about it. Thanks for your kind welcome back!
    Love, sara x

    Dear Sue,
    I couldn’t help thinking about your lovely message in the last few weeks and smiling – you probably heard I had a rather hoarse voice for a couple of weeks, so sounded rather strange, as well as was a bit of an effort to talk! Anyway, all better now! Thank you for your support, it means so much. Am loving being back and getting in to the swing now having been back a month. Hope all well with you & to hear from you again
    Much love, Sara x

    Dear Fran,
    I am so touched that my coming back was enough to make you comment! Thank you!! I have so appreciated the support so it really meant a lot! Maybe you’ll even be tempted again, as I love having a dialogue with you all when time allows – twitter’s good for that too as it’s so instant – even though I wasn’t sure about it at all at first…but I think everyone feels that, from what I hear people say. Anyway, loving being back, thanks again and do hope all’s well with you!
    Love, sara x

    Hi Eileen,
    Well, I’ve made it through the first month(!) & am loving it!! It did feel more scary than I expected to start with but i think am relaxing now. Anyway, I do hope you’re still enjoying watching and I really appreciate your support.
    Many thanks and love, sara x

    Thank you Cathy! I didn’t realise how much I’d missed you all until I got back – I knew however whilst I was away, as I had time to realise how much I loved the job…it genuinely doesn’t feel like going in to work at the moment. really fab! Hope you’re well. Love, sara x

    Hi Michelle,
    Thanks for the warm welcome! Sorry my ‘nice soft voice’ hasn’t been that for at least 2 of the weeks back!! I had a bad sore throat, so was really battling with talking! Anyway, better now. Really enjoying being back. Thanks again

    Hi Shirley,
    Be so happy to ask re your Red Carpet nail polish, but can you let me know what you mean by ‘curing’?! Was it a misprint or am I being silly!? let me know and I’ll definately ask for you! thanks for your kind words.
    Love, Sara x
