Just a quick blog this week as I don’t have much to tell you… I haven’t been doing much except working! I did squeeze in another half marathon at the weekend though; I’m now almost at the 600 mile point of my 1,000 mile charity challenge for 2019, hurray! This was a rather hot and sweaty race as it was warm and humid in the south east on Saturday but, rather wonderfully, the organisers brought out ice pops for the runners at the 10 mile point which were very welcome!
And the medal was fantastic – the race was a Harry Potter themed one called “Chamber of Runs” and the double-sided medal bears an Albus Dumbledore quote: “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities”. Love it.
I’ve been pretty much living in running gear outside work recently so I’ve quite enjoyed dressing up when I’m at QVC; I’ve been making a big effort to wear more dresses this year and I’m really liking it! I’m such a jeans girl normally but I’ve embraced the dress this summer and have even found a new love for florals! I loved wearing this Marley printed dress from Ghost (that’s lovely fashion guest presenter Evey with me, also in Ghost). The range has such gorgeous prints and styles.
Now… what’s in the pretty bag? That was the question I asked when I opened up the box containing the latest Elemis Today’s Special Value offer which will be on air on Sunday 21st (but you can order it early here now!).
It’s a lovely toiletry bag but of course it’s what’s inside that really matters and this one is a cracker! A six-piece 24/7 Face & Body Collection, including for the first time in a Today’s Special Value offer the new Peptide4 Plumping Pillow Facial. You also get a Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil, the multi award-winning Pro-Collagen Marine Cream in a choice of Original or Ultra-Rich, a Cleansing Micellar Water, and then for the body, the divine Frangipani Monoi Bath and Shower Milk and Body Cream. Amazing collection, amazing price – don’t miss it!
Stay cool and speak soon.
