A week of fun, exercise, visiting family and eating (of course!)


Craig enjoying his cocktail at Merhaba Bar, BrightonHiya,

Hope you are well and having a good week?! Have you been enjoying the 'Share The Love' ongoing event? I think it sums up the way many of us feel about QVC.

I had a great week, really varied again. I had a long run of early shows which I very much enjoy, but boy, do they take their toll since I got used to doing lates! It's fun doing The Morning Show, just wonder if I need an extra coffee sometimes before we go live!!

After that I spent the weekend in Brighton, you can see me sampling a rather scrummy cocktail at Merhaba bar at the top of this post – it had rum, spices and passion fruit that had to be lit to caramelise, yum!! I only had 2, honest!!

Also went for dinner at Lee Hobein's place with Debbie (Flint). Lee made us a delicious meal and we had a great catch up. We also had a rather decadent experience of sipping champagne from glass slippers, in case you wondered what I was doing in this pic!!!!

Finally got round to unpacking my new cook's essentials mini pansWe've decided it will be like a little mini 'Come Dine With Me', just need to work out who's next… which brings me onto my new pans!! You may remember a few weeks ago in one of my cook's essentials show we had a OTO on the mini blue pans – I finally got round to opening the box last week, I still get SO excited opening QVC parcels!

You can see the photo of them and how well they go in my blue kitchen New cook's essentials mini pans in Craig's kitchennext to the Prepology knives!! I reckon at the dinner party I will make individual apple crumbles in them… yum!!!

I was also in Bristol this weekend helping my sister with her wedding preparations, the big day is not far away! Mum and I nipped out for lunch on Saturday and were lucky enough to get a table outside on what turned out to be a glorious day.

Craig and his mum enjoy lunch in the Bristol sunshineWe'd planned a quick lunch of an hour or so, in the end we stayed at the restaurant 3 hours just soaking up the sun and drinking coffee and having a great catch up – a perfect Saturday!!

Other than that, I have been lucky enough to try out some upcoming TSV's that I am launching; one is from Peony Flowers with an auto delivery option. They certainly add some much needed colour and Peony TSV optionscheeriness!

And I have been getting to sleep in Kelly Hoppen's latest duvet set, its a fab mosaic design and is reversible so you can go subtle or big on design and it really works on its own as a designer piece as well with any other Kelly throws as you can see in the photos. Oh and did I mention it is 100% cotton and 700 thread count, bliss!!

Grilled salmon with brown rice and chilli fried vegetablesOne final thing is that I am now on day 12 of my 'blitz' with my trainer, gosh its hard to stick to, especially as I have such a sweet tooth, you can see a photo of one of my new favourites – grilled salmon with a dash of white wine (a Simon Brown suggestion) served with brown rice and chill fried veg – yum!! and healthy, hurrah!!

So, that's it for this week, look after yourselves, do leave a comment and see you for Peony and Kelly Hoppen TSV's on Thursday and Sunday night respectively.

And don't forget, you can follow me @craigrowe_tv on Twitter, and you can also see more pics of the Kelly Hoppen and Peony TSV's on my Facebook page!
