Hope you have been keeping warm and safe in the snow and cold?
London I know wasn't affected as badly as some parts of the country but it was still a winter wonderland here! Last weekend I was due to go and see friends in the country but had to cancel those plans as they were snowed in. So, instead I made the most of being in London, enjoyed the city in the snow and even attempted a snowy run in Regents Park.. (yes, I must be mad and have since ordered another pair of Wintertrax!!) – the picture is of Regents Park.
This week was also the QVC Beauty Bash; I had never been before and it was truly an amazing day – I love skincare and have this last year or so started doing more skincare shows. It was great to meet and get some wonderful feedback from viewers and was also a fun day with colleagues Ali young, Julia, Will & the newest team member Chloe. In the photo below you can see us having fun in the photo booth and me having a laugh with 2 very smiley QVC viewers who were by their own admission complete beauty addicts!!
This weekend I am off to Bristol to see my family and to organise and supervise over the madness of my niece Jasmine's 10th birthday party. We are playing Laser Quest, having pizza then going home for games, pressies and a movie. If you are someone who follows me on Twitter or Facebook thanks for the suggestions and I will keep you posted over the weekend. I will also put some pics on this blog next week. My sister is also due any day now, a very exciting time for the family, again I promise I will let you know when I have a new niece or nephew!!!
Finally, thank you SO much for your responses to my new blog feature "3 things" – I loved reading them and PLEASE let me know what they are again this week. Here are mine…
BEST BIT OF THE WEEK: This has to be the day I spent at the QVC Beauty Bash – it reminded me just how much of a big family QVC is and how blessed I am to do the job I do. I feel so privileged to have had a whole day with colleagues I adore, chatting to guests and brands I respect so much and most important having lots of laughs & hugs with beloved QVC viewers. I am still reeling from it all!
FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: I did say this wouldn't always be a QVC product and this week it isn't!! It's actually a shirt I bought with QVC model, stylist and self confessed shopping addict Katherine Russell (oneyou.co.uk). I find it really hard to get well-fitted, smart, trendy shirts and this one I LOVE, and what's more it was half price in the Calvin Klein sale, I had loads of compliments at the Beauty Bash wearing it, it's on the pics but I will wear it on air soon for you.
HAPPY THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Experiencing Regents Park in the snow made me think about the wonder of the natural world, the light, the textures and the beauty. Let's take 5 minutes sometimes just to breathe in this wonderful world.
Now, I want to know yours….. I will read them all, I will reply to you and I will try and read out on air on QVC too.
Hugs and lots of love,
