One of the biggest shopping days of the year is almost upon us – Black Friday! Not only will we have a fantastic Emma Bridgewater radio as our Today’s Special Value offer on the day, we’ll also have some wonderful electronics products to keep an eye out for!
We caught up with guest Gabrielle Bradshaw, who tells us little more about this brilliant Emma Bridgewater radio…
I have been absolutely loving having the VQ Retro Mini Digital Radios with the iconic Emma Bridgewater prints in my home over these last few weeks. There are no less than six patterns to choose from and two of them are designed just for QVC.
Last week we did some filming with the radios for QVC and it was a delight to ‘style’ them around the house and even co-ordinate them with different clothing looks. It made me realise just how versatile they are and how amazingly stylish they look. They also have a fabulous retro feel to them, a wonderful mix of totally modern with a twist of nostalgia which makes them hugely desirable. All of this and I haven’t even mentioned the sound yet!
No surprise really as VQ (formerly View Quest ) are an award-winning British brand known to take their inspiration from the world of fashion and the arts and they care as much about how their radios look as how they sound. The sound is of course superb, whether you are listening to the radio or your own music. They are feature-packed and include not only DAB, DAB+ and FM radio but also Bluetooth so that you can listen to music from your phone, tablet or any other smart device wirelessly.
I tend to nearly always listen to Radio 4 but have made lots of new finds recently as the radio auto scans so many stations and lists them alphabetically. It has been a real journey of discovery and I can pre-set up to 30 of my new-found favourites to access at the push of a button. Other extras include dual alarms, a sleep timer, countdown timer and even a USB port for charging your phone.
Looking forward to Christmas I am thinking of who to buy one of these beauties for and which pattern would suit. I know my niece would love one – at 21 she is effortlessly stylish and always bang on-trend. I think she would love the Sampler and the Polka Dot patterns. My brother loves his sport and is never far from a radio, especially when the cricket is on. I think he would like the Black Toast design.
My mum often listens to the radio through the night I can see the Blue Daisy working really well in her bedroom. Personally I have my eye on the Marmalade design as I would like it in the kitchen. The sixth pattern in Rose and Bee with soft pink roses on the standard cream background. Beautiful.
I think these radios are wonderful gifts and perfect Christmas presents. I know I would be delighted to unwrap one on Christmas morning. However I am not sure I am going to wait that long. There is a little space in our kitchen right now which would be filled very nicely by a Marmalade patterned VQ radio… and as it is one of the new QVC designs I think I am going to treat myself to an early Christmas present on 27th November. Breakfast with Radio 4, toast and marmalade and a VQ Retro Mini complete with Emma Bridgewater’s Marmalade pattern to match sounds good to me!”
