A busy brummie week!


How are you doing? I’m thrilled to get confirmation of the dates and times of when you’ll be able to see the first episode of my new show on the QVC Beauty Channel.

It’ll be an hour of makeovers by the illustrious Mikey Phillips (@makeupbymikey) and also a Q&A session with esteemed beauty blogger, Jo Gay of Patent Purple (@patentpurple). It’s all focussed on some of the make-up products available at QVC for women of colour. You can watch the video from my previous blog here.

So get these dates in your diary, set your TV box to record it and also please spread the word amongst friends who you think might be interested!

QVC Beauty Channel (Sky 668, Freeview 35, Freeview HD 112, Freesat 816)

Friday 26th June at 11am (first airing)

Sunday 28th June at 5pm (repeat of Friday’s show)

Please watch and let us know what you think. Feedback to me on my blog or on Twitter (@TVMarv) or my Facebook page (facebook.com/TVMarv) about anything else you’d like to see in future shows!

Make-up selection

I’ve had a mad busy week in Birmingham what with two viewings of our apartment, so a lot of cleaning. I’ve started to watch the much talked about House of Cards, featuring the wonderful actor Kevin Spacey, who’s just been awarded an Honour by the Queen.

It’s on the subscription service Netflix and is well worth joining to see all the incredible scheming he gets up to. Very good in comparison to the original British series from the 1980s featuring Ian Richardson.

House of Cards

You might have read about my Diamonique splurge in my last blog? Well lucky old me has gone and landed a couple of shows in the next few weeks so check my listing below and join me. And if you’re a rose gold lady, then you’re going to love the first ever Frank Usher jewellery Today’s Special Value offer that I’ll be launching next Friday 26th June.

I’ve got that show at midnight and then again another show later that day at 8pm. But the star performer will be this little beauty – the perfume bottle crystal pendant and chain. Here’s a close-up shot of it.

You’ll be staggered by the amazing price for what I think is a real stand-out piece. If you’re looking for a signature statement necklace to wear this summer, you won’t go wrong with it.

Marv's Livingstone bearPS) Have you seen my new travel buddy, Livingstone? He’s my trusty partner when I’m going between Birmingham and London. He was too cute to say no to when I saw him on air with Charlie and Will last week!

    HI Sue – thanks for getting in touch. Yes I am really looking forward to EasiYo with Jilly soon – it is gorgeous. I’ve not had chance to put my yoghurt maker in action yet – chiefly because my fridge isn’t big enough for it. But believe you me I’ll be like a demon with it when I get started. And the Frank Usher TSV is so cute. I wore it earlier this week – couldn’t yesterday but will wear again next week – it’s so intricately made! Lovely long necklace with it too. Hope you’re aok – always fab to hear from you!!

    Hi Jill – yes Donna Maria tweeted me about Dominic’s seductive voice – he went bright red when I read her tweet out on air, bless him. He’s such a sweetie and super-knowledgeable. I bow down to his expertise. Aurora is a range I’m fast falling in love with because it does look exquisite. Shame you missed out on the bracelet. See if it’s on Waitlistxxxx lots of love xxx

    Great blog as usual Marv. Love reading them, you always make me smile. Beware of those travel buddies though, they have a habit of multiplying when you’re not looking lol xx
