Smorgasbords, Yankee treats & a sneaky look at SBC!


Hi there! How are you? Hope your week is going well so far?

Now firstly I am going to ask you if you love SBC? I do and I cannot wait to host the 4pm show on 19th February with the wonderful Adele. There is an SBC TSV that day and if you watch this video, I give you sneaky peak of what you will get, sssssh, just don't tell anyone I told you, haha!! Sorry I say it's in March in the video, it is the 19th February! Enjoy and do drop me a line. I reply to all comments and would love to hear from you…

It's been a pretty tough year so far with things going on in my personal life but I continue to smile and I love that my job at QVC is a constant reason for me to smile and feel blessed.

A few highlights of the last week have been spending some time in Hackney, East London with friends, one of them being Justine Balmer. It was a mini celebration as Justine has just reached her pledge goal to complete her debut album – if you would like to find out more or offer your support just go to She is definitely the next big thing in the world of classical crossover music – watch out Katherine Jenkins! ;-)

The final part of the celebration was a wonderful Smorgasbord that our friend Emma put on, doesn't it look scrummy!

Craig with Peppermint BarkTalking of scrummy – I was very happy to find a little gift posted to me from Amanda Busby, a friend on my Facebook Page (Craig Rowe TV Presenter) – her brother had recently been to New York and kindly brought me back a bar of Peppermint Bark to try – I have the candle and now the sweet itself, can't wait to try it – am saving it for a special occasion and not sure if I will share it or not yet!!

I do hope you will join me for my shows later this week. Friday I have Yankee and Bamix and on Saturday 3pm Diamonique Rocks which I am looking forward to. I love getting dressed up and don't get to host jewellery very often so please join me.

Much love,
Craig xx

    Ooh fab TSV Craig! Love love love my arnica. I use it for my bad back,mum uses it for arthritis and niece Kiera uses it for all the bumps & bruises she gets from sports, climbing trees, falling out of trees! I also find it soothing on a headache. Will try the tip for puffy eyes too, great tip! :)

    Hi Craig. I have trouble with my back and sciatica so ordered the TSV which arrived today. Funny enough I found an old bottle of arnica in the back of my bathroom cabinet that I’d purchased from QVC years ago with a tiny bit left, if I realised I would have used it sooner, although it’s probably out of date. Watching your video prompted me to try it again and I can’t believe how good the propolis smells! I have had a difficult and stressful time lately and one of the reasons I ordered some of the SBC items was because of the homeopathic ingredients.I am hoping a combination of products will be calming and relaxing and take my mind off of things. We all would like to be happy and healthy and its sad to read you have also had some personal issues. I, like you, hope this year brings about positive changes. Take care. X

    hi Maureen
    Thanks for getting in touch.
    Just to be clear, I had said I used ARNICA on my back when I had sciatia but I was also doing physio, yoga and other treatments so it was just part of what I was doing.
    Propolis is more for problematic skin creating a clean, fresh environment so its great for break-outs etc.
    SOrry for any confusion! Hope you get the product and relieft you need. I would really suggest googling or talking to your doctor about stretches you can do for sciatia, its agony so I really sympathise with you.

    Hi Craig, You would never know that you have personal stuff going on in the background. You are always bubbly and professional and one of the my favourite presenters to watch. Like you I love Yankee Candles and have a candle draw to store all my QVC goodies. My favourite is Lemon/Lavender at the moment, people always comment on how lovely my house smells. Love SBC. Keep bringing such great TSVs. Hope things improve for you, stay strong. xxx

    Sorry, you are going through a difficult time at the moment Craig. you always have a beautiful smile on your face and you always cheer me up when I’m having a tough day. I enjoy watching you presenting jewellery shows I wish you did more of them. Enjoy the rest of today and keep smiling. Take care. Xxxx
