Hope you are well, thanks for reading my blog all your comments I keep receiving, I really appreciate them.
Had some very cherished and special time last week; firstly Thursday night was a special evening champagne reception that Tova threw at the Ritz Hotel in London to celebrate 20 years at QVC UK. It was so magical; champagne, canapés and a beautiful touching speech where Tova thanked all the people involved in the 20 years of her being a hugely successful beauty and jewellery brand. Alison Young also thanked Tova on behalf of us all and as she shed a tear so did we all; we all love Tova as I know you do and the evening was so unforgettable.
I also had my beloved family stay with me for a few days, which was glorious. My older niece Jasmine is now 12 so it’s much harder to get her to have a photo taken with her now uncool uncle Craig, but I managed to get one silly one with her.
The other ones are with my sister and my 2-year-old niece Ruby, who is always happy to pose for photos and is such a joy to everyone she meets; she smiles, laughs and just radiates love to everyone.
We did ‘London things’, such as taking in the view from the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building (you can see the Gherkin and the Cheese-Grater buildings in the background of that photo).
We also took Jasmine shopping (her new favourite past-time) and we had a wonderful sunny picnic with lots of friends on the weekend.
We also took a trip to Brighton to see my friend Alexa and I love this picture of her and Ruby, playing and having a giggle. They have gone back to Bristol now and the flat feels empty without them. Such treasured moments.
How excited are you about the QVC Beauty Excellence Awards on Friday night? I am SO looking forward to them particularly as I will be standing in for Will Gowing who is away on holiday. I will be in the Green Room chatting to the winners and nominees before they are presented with the award by Alison Young in the studio. Please join us 9pm – 11pm on Friday night for the awards show, your favourite brand and guests, glitz, glamour and fun – it’s going to be an evening to remember!
I will be tweeting about it on the run-up to and during the evening, so please get in touch with your thoughts if you are on Twitter using the hashtag #QVCBEA.
Again, thanks for reading my blog, I reply to ALL comments so do post one below. Would love to know what beauty products you think deserve awards!
Big big hugs,
