The Thames, The Moon & a fantastic Yankee TSV!!!


On the Thames with AprilHi there,

Hope you are well and having a good week?

I am just back in from a fantastic day out with my friend April – we work together at QVC and as she is Canadian, she seems to always make the most of her time in London. So we made a deal that I would join her on some of her activities and I too could re-discover my city!


Today we had a great day cruising on the Thames – we took the city clipper from Westminster all the way out to the mammoth Thames Barrier, then over to Greenwich for a picnic and back again. The weather was glorious and it was a perfect day out. We even sailed past Lee Hobeins apartment en-route and you can see a photo he took from his balcony at us waving as we sailed past!!

Sailing past Lee's apartment The Moon








Talking of photos, I have been trying out a camera we had at QVC, the Canon SX280HS. And as it's a beautiful moon I have just been out trying the super-zoom and what a great photo I have got – best moon pic ever taken by yours truly! What do you think?

Yankee Candle teaserAlso – if you are a Yankee Candle fan – STOP THE PRESS!! This weekend myself and the wonderful Rosa are launching the latest Yankee TSV. I can't tell you too much, in fact I can't even show you colour photos yet, but I can give you a bit of clue in that they are USA exclusives and in fragrances that, other than at QVC, you won't even see until next year. Also, we rarely have a TSV on a set of 3 large jar candles and that's what this is….how exciting!!!


As soon as I can tell you more I will, but in the meantime, enjoy the sneaky pic!!

OK, so time for my 3 THINGS…

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK: sunbathing with April in front of the Old Royal Navy college in Greenwich.

FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: this is one of the Yankee Candles from the TSV, a wonderful hypnotic, enticing fragrance in a rich, seductive colour…. will tell you more on the weekend!!

HAPPY THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: with the recent passing of QVC models Beulah & Amica, it's made me really reflect on life and try to make the best of each passing moment. Love and empathy to the families of Beulah & Amica – beautiful people inside and out, we will never forget you.

Now, I would like to know yours!

Much love,

Craig xx

    Hi Mr Craig
    As I write I believe you are on yet another holibobs – good for you!!
    I am feeling a lot better now – no more funny turns/dizziness and my hair is finally growing back!!! On new mediation which so far is working without any side effects which is good!!
    I didn’t get my saucepans (she types weeping!). I had a letter saying stock wasn’t good enough so waiting on more, then another letter saying couldn’t get it so cancelled order!! Not entirely sure what happened there but no doubt there will be another set sometime in the future……….!!! I have made up with it by purchasing many items Mr Craig!!!
    Hope you had a lovely break Mr Craig and will see you soon on my TV!!
    LOH xxxxxxx Sarah P
