Summery treats coming your way this weekend


Black Jacqueline Kennedy sunglasses Wow, what a great weekend we have coming your way! We kick off Saturday with an amazing Birkenstock's Today's Special Value and the Smashbox team are in town too. I love Smashbox make-up and have just been trying out a roller ball lipgloss in a very pale pink shade which is going to be lovely for the summer… of course we'll get one this year, be optimistic!

Jacqueline Kennedy in her trademark sunglasses So, if we're going to have a good summer, then one thing you have to have is a great pair of shades – and we have just the thing in the Jacqueline Kennedy Collection 5th Anniversary shows on Sunday. We all know her for her stylish jewellery, but possibly the thing she made most iconic were those fabulous oversized sunglasses. And guess what, for the very first time we're going to be selling replicas of those very glasses!

Our Jacqueline Kennedy Collection UV400 Sunglasses Model wearing Jackie O sunglasses look every bit as good as hers did, and are going to give your look some serious class this summer (I'll keep saying it, it's coming!). I love the black version, and they're also available in a lovely tortoiseshell finish if you find the black a bit heavy. They even come with a certificate of authenticity to prove that they really are worthy of the First Lady herself. Catch me wearing mine at 8pm on Sunday night!

Isn't it funny how how styles come and go out of fashion? I found this picture of Daniel, Sophie and I about to watch the sunset in the Maldives on a family holiday. Just by looking at the eyewear can you tell what year we were there?

One final thing, judging by the number of comments you've posted on my blog this week, you all really seemed to enjoy the Elemis mini series and I must admit, so did I! As Keeley mentioned (several times!), be sure to watch out for the next Elemis TSV on April 25th – it's a goodie!

Have a great weekend, whatever the weather, and don't forget that the clocks 'spring forward' in the wee small hours on Sunday.

Speak soon,
Julia. xx.

    I love the Jackie ‘O’ glasses,I have never moved on from that style,she was my role model.I could never understand her 2nd marriage,we will never know, the press were better behaved in those days,perhaps if our Diana had been given the same chance to retain her dignity things would have worked out for her as they did for Jackie. I am not at all good with dates but I think your smashing picture was taken in the early-mid ninties. If I’m miles off I apologise.Will look for you on Sunday in your Jackies.
    God Bless,

    Julia I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to reply to our comments. Both you and Ali Keenan take an interest in what we say (even if it is waffle!). Carry on the good work and thank you for taking an interest in us.

    Hi Debbie
    Sorry to hear about the mishap with the delivery – lucky the recipient didn’t know what was in the boxes or she might not have been so honest!!!!!!!
    So glad you enjoyed the shows with Keeley and myself – have you tried any of the ‘recipes’ yet?
    The top I was wearing was from Per Una at M&S last year, but I think they may still have them as I saw Catherine Huntley wearing one a couple of weeks ago and I haven’t seen her in it before – I hope you get one, it’s a lovely top.
    See you for the Elemis TSV launch in April

    Hi Marg
    I wonder if you managed to get the Jackie O’s before they sold out? There weren’t many left for my show in the evening – I really liked them on so maybe I will treat myself to a pair when they are back in stock.
    You were a little way out with the photo but I won’t reveal the year just yet.

    Hi Elaine
    It’s my pleasure! I am interested in what you guys have to say about the blogs we write – it would be awful not to have any feedback from you. So keep it coming and we’ll keep doing the blogs
    much love

    Hi Marg
    Although I missed out on buying them as they sold out so quickly, a sample arrived in my dressing room so at least I can use those until they are back in stock! Let’s hope we both get lots of use out of them due to a hot summer.
    By the way the photo was taken in 2003 – can’t believe that was 7 years ago, time flies!!

    Hi Julia, always love the show,us girls were heading into our clubhouse after a marvellous days golf this afternoon when we noticed a group of our male players including the captain and vice captain gathered round the tv, going by the comments that were flying around between them we thought it was baywatch or pamela anderson on the box,after a few groans and a few comments that i will leave to your imagination went up we decided to check out what was causing this was you Julia ! putting your hair up in a bun,it was driving them cuckoo, men what are they like??
    always enjoy the show

    Hi Joyce
    Thanks for your kind comments and pleased to hear you always enjoy the show.
    Having just celebrated yet another birthday ( they seem to come around quicker the older I get ) I am very flattered to have been the centre of such attention!
    Great story – thanks for sharing it

    Dear Julia, you look fantastic – well done for losing weight- how much did you lose in the end. You have encouraged me to lose weight although I did not like the Diet Chef but am using my pPilates machine regularly. What creams can you recommend so that the facial skin does not sag tooooo much. I am in my early 60s so am aware that the face might suffer- something for something, unfortunately.
    Keep up the good work and I really enjoy your programmes – you are such a hoot and good fun.
