Well, another busy week has flown by. I’m quite pleased as I like January to speed on by and get us closer to spring. Once Christmas and New Year are over I’m done with winter. Oh. Unless it snows. If it snows I am happy to live in a winter wonderland til it’s summer!
So, this year’s Beauty Bash was a big deal. Over 4,500 attendees were treated to expert advice, facials, brow shaping, makeovers, massages, skin analysis and more. We always wish we could invite everybody. There simply isn’t a venue big enough. I loved meeting so many of you. You shared stories of beauty, shopping, sadness & happiness. I laughed, listened, talked and even welled up more than once. You’ve no idea how much it means when we have the chance to meet. If you didn’t get an invite this year please cross fingers, legs & eyes for next time. It’s a great experience.
I was, literally, swept off my feet by the lovely James Read! He said I’d lost so much weight he could pick me up and whisked me up into his arms. He always makes me laugh, he’s a bundle of fun. Another fun loving friend is Ali Keenan. Although we attended the Bash together we hardly saw one another as it was so busy, but we did get this pic at the start of Wednesday. I think we both had a secret ambition of being game show girlies… Julia Roberts did it for real on The Price Is Right. Wonder what she thinks of our posing efforts!
The most commonly asked question, for me, was how I’ve lost my weight. I told the story, which you can find on my previous blogs, several times over and heard some great feedback from those who’ve tried The Body Rescue Plan by Christianne Wolff, too. As I had so many questions on the first day I decided to invite the lady herself to the Bash the next day. She loved meeting so many folks who are planning to change their lives by using her plan.
The next date the book is scheduled to air is the 10th of February in the morning show from 9am with Kathy Tayler, who has also had great success with the system. I am delighted to tell you I have a copy of the book available for one lucky reader to win! Just post a comment below before midnight on the evening of February 1st, and the winner will be selected, at random, the next day. What you write will not influence your chances of winning, so it really will be a ‘names out of a hat’ process and it’s as fair as it can be. You can find the full terms and conditions here.
Onto the less glam side of my week… my house project. It’s still in full flow – here’s my son throwing his weight around bashing down a wall! We took it in turns to get it down. My goodness, what a workout! I’ve discovered muscles I never knew I had! Will Gowing will be paying a visit to the site on Friday so watch this space for more on that.
Onto Technology & You. What a great series it has been. We’ve had some wonderful feedback from those of you who have been tuning in and enjoying it. This Tuesday at 9pm we see the season finale. Remember you can get your questions straight through to the experts on the night on Twitter (@qvcuk) and our QVC Facebook page. We will be joined by social media whizz kid, Will, for this show so he’ll make sure your questions get through. Any that we run out of time to answer live will be answered as soon as possible after the show. I really hope you can tune in for some great buys, especially as that long awaited January payday has finally come! January’s such a long month. I (and my bank manager) am delighted the January bank account drought is, at last, over.
I hope you’re all keeping well & warm.
Lots of love,
