I’ve just had my annual weekend away in Ireland with my mum and three sisters, always a much looked-forward to event and even more so this year as it meant a couple of days away from the slight chaos that still reigns at home as decorating, flat-pack furniture assembly and so on continues in the new house!
This year we went to Athlone, which is in the Midlands and on the banks of the River Shannon. We had a fabulous weekend of chatting, laughing, eating, wandering and shopping as always. And, much to Mum’s delight, our only brother joined us for dinner on the Saturday night too, as he doesn’t live very far away. Here’s a silly selfie we took while it was still just the girls… I’m the oldest of the “children”!
Now back to work and back to being very, very busy! As well as my shifts at QVC and all the house stuff, my new book comes out on Good Friday so will be out by the time you read this (that’s the Kindle version; the paperback will be out in June). I’m also going to try to run a marathon on the 24th as part of my “Run 1000 Miles in 2019” challenge to raise funds for Headway UK, despite the fact that I haven’t technically been training for a marathon! I have obviously been running a lot and did a 20 mile run a few weeks ago so I’m sure it will be fine (famous last words…).
Right, here’s a couple of my QVC picks for the coming week. The very clever LAB sisters will be back with another Today’s Special Value offer on Tuesday 23rd. This time it’s their Eye & Lip Focus tool, a nifty little gadget which helps to tackle lines and puffiness around the eyes and those pesky lip lines. This one has LED lights as well as micro and galvanic current, all technologies which are said to visibly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. It’s battery operated so no plugging in and comes with a special serum too. Definitely worth a look if the lip and eye areas are bothering you in terms of ageing.
I also want to mention a brand new Gatineau product – their Gentle Silk Transforming Cream Cleanser. It’s the most incredibly hydrating cleanser, so if your skin often feels tight after cleansing it would be perfect. I’ve tried it and loved it; my face felt so soft and looked all glowy! And the cleanser is in a supersize 200ml AND comes with a muslin cloth and a lovely headband too.
And that’s it for this week!
