Behind the scenes with Ali Young!



Firstly, huge congratulations to Tammy who picked up the prize of our gorgeous Honora pearl strand in my last competition.

The prize I have lined up for you in June is rather special and VERY hard to get hold of! In fact it’s been especially made for me to give away on my blog! I’d better not tempt fate as I’m still waiting for it to arrive!

All will be revealed in my next blog… If it arrives in time!

I thoroughly enjoy my time at QVC and as well as catching up with you on air, I keep myself busy off air too.

Regular meetings with buyers, producers and managers and from time to time I’m invited to do a photo shoot. I’ll be honest. I don’t really enjoy them that much 🙁 I always feel really self-conscious. Have you seen the episode of friends where Chandler struggles to smile ‘naturally’ for the camera? It’s hilarious! Well – I can completely relate to that. I’m aware of every muscle in my face when a photographer says… ‘Ok, big smile please…’

However, this photo shoot was a lot of fun. We have wonderful and very talented teams behind the scenes at QVC and not only does Justin our photographer fall well and truly into that category but he’s especially patient too. Especially when it comes to Ali and me!

I had the iPad to hand and between shots picked up some footage. I’ll set the scene for this first clip. I’m considerably taller than Ali, but she had this covered…

Justin coped well and directed us beautifully, but ten minutes into the shoot, Ali had a few ideas of her own…

Then of course it was time to look through the photos. I also had a very important question to ask… It took a while to get an answer…!

Thank you to Justin for his patience… I hope there are at least one or two pictures in there that can be used.

A date hasn’t been confirmed yet but Ali and I are hoping to do some filming together in the not too distant future for our website and blogs. Having said that, once management have seen this blog they may have other ideas! What do you think!?

Take care and see you soon and watch out for that prize coming up in June!!

Charlie 🙂
