Hello! Hope you are well and had a good Bank Holiday weekend. I was at QVC all weekend which is always great fun especially when we have a big event like ‘Got To Have It’ where we get to do double-handed presenter shows.
So, the countdown has begun and not long to wait now until the on-air launch of BundleBerry by Amanda Holden. The range has been available for a while online but it has not yet been seen on QVC TV. We will premier the show on Monday 5th June, 2pm with me and 9pm with Miceal.
As you may remember from my last blog, I was spending the day with Amanda last Friday and as promised I wanted to share with you how it went:
We all met around 9.30am, there were various members of the QVC team from Marketing, Social Media and Planning. We spent time discussing Amanda’s ambassador role for QVC as well as the launch shows and some future ideas. Even though it was essentially a business meeting, we all had great fun and I have to say Amanda was absolutely wonderful to be around. She is friendly, warm and so funny!
Here’s a lovely photo of Amanda and I by the lake just outside QVC where we stopped for green smoothies (she is uber-healthy!)
We also had a rehearsal in the studio to give us all a feel for how the show could run when we go live. All in all it was fabulous day!
One thing I think you will be really impressed to see is that this isn’t a range that Amanda has just put her name to; she has been part of the design process and generated the ideas herself. Every piece has a story or a distinct reason why she wanted to create it with QVC. It’s such a gorgeous range and as well as the grey vase and the suitcase side table I think I will now be adding this table to my wish list and there is a lovely story behind it!
And then, after what I suspect will be a busy Monday with Amanda Holden, comes Destination Beauty on Tuesday 6th June from 9pm – midnight. If you liked The Beauty Haul that Chloe and I hosted in March this will be along the same lines: hero products, what’s hot and cult items to get you summer-ready. There will be a lot of new products from Molton Brown, Utan, Philip Kingsley, Ultrasun and Emjoi as well as a Tresemme hairdryer… it’s three hours you definitely will not want to miss!
So lots to look forward to and I do hope you will join me.
Any questions for Amanda – please post comments below and I can ask them during the live show.
Big, big hugs
