Before you get the wrong idea this is nothing to do with wedding plans, haha! Let me explain…
Sorry Mum, but it worked as a catchy title! It was my mum’s 80th birthday on the 16th of this month. She had friends and family from all over come to celebrate with her over two weeks. Despite my hectic schedule I was able to join in and really enjoyed her being made such a fuss of. She loved every minute, too!
Our family, like so many these days, is very spread out. My brother Mike and his wife, Christine, live in Oregon in the United States. Years pass so quickly in between seeing each other; it had been about 14 years since we last saw each other in person! Seeing them was a highlight of the celebrations, and we squeezed in as much time as we could together.
My brother has worked in construction for years, so he and Christine insisted on helping me with my house build whilst they were visiting! Such an amazingly kind thing to do. I’m very lucky indeed.
On to something new…
I have been fortunate enough to get my hands on Friday’s Diamonique Today’s Special Value and some gorgeous matching pieces to try and report back on. Well, they have received so many compliments both on and off air! The earrings are beautifully fluid; I’ve been wearing the yellow gold and I feel it looks like liquid gold suspending a diamond. Of course, it’s not a real diamond but it sure gets the attention of one! Do look out for them and place your order early as I just know they’ll be very popular.
Many of you already know I recently overhauled my life, including getting healthy and losing weight thanks to the Body Rescue Plan by Christianne Wolff (if not, please browse back through my previous blog posts). Well, she came along to the QVC Beauty Bash and left her sweatshirt there, so asked if I could pick it up for her. I did and put it in the boot of my car, where I promptly forgot about it until yesterday.
I was soooo cold as I had forgotten my coat, and so I popped it on when I found it. Wow – it’s super comfy! I’ve told Christianne she needs to bring her clothing range to us, and confessed to having ‘borrowed’ it – she told me to keep it! I kept it on all night with my fluffy jimjams and felt warm as toast. Can’t wait to see her back at QVC. Keep me up to date with your progress if you’re following the plan, too.
Finally, something Blue!
Boyband Blue are back and they came to QVC to perform tracks from their new album. Jackie had the pleasure of interviewing them, while I had the pleasure of sneaking a couple of piccies with them. They really impressed us with their singing live, especially as it was quite early in the morning when voices can be a tad temperamental. They were all lovely, bubbly, professional and just a pleasure to work with. Come back soon, Blue!
So that’s my old, new, borrowed and blue theme. I must just also mention that I have the very enviable job of launching Triple Day next Tuesday, which kicks off with the bareMinerals seven-piece Today’s Special Value offer! Tune in at midnight on Monday 2nd March and all day Tuesday 3rd to see some cracking offers – all on three Easy Payments!
