Cake and L’Occitane!



I’m writing this week’s blog from home. The sun is shining, temperatures are high, doors and windows are open, and I’m wearing shorts! It’s like summer has returned to London! It’s glorious!

To go a little bit further, I’m typing while listening to Jeremy Vine on Radio 2, while accompanied by a huge slice of chocolate cake… it has to be done every now and then!

I’ve enjoyed a few lovely days off work. A spot of DIY, with a fence post that needed repairing in the garden, lots of TV, and some wonderful walks… most of the time. Without going in to too much detail, my Cairns did a spot of ‘rolling’ in the most unpleasant ‘pile of something’ ever imaginable. It’s the first time it’s happened in 6 years, I’m hoping it’s the last! Dogs are known for rolling in what’s left by a fox, which is pretty horrible, but bearable. This was on another level. I’ll say no more 🙁

I’ve had some great shows of late at QVC. A really enjoyable hour of Charlie Bears (you’ll find many magical characters online), and it was a pleasure to be on air with Amanda Wakeley too. I also simply loved the three hours of Luxury Jewellery I presented.

I’ve another busy schedule ahead of me this week, and more fabulous shows to look forward to as well.

I’m thrilled to be on air with Alexis and an hour of L’Occitane this Sunday 23rd September at 5pm. It’s set to be a really special day with Alexis, when she brings us the exquisite Today’s Special Value from L’Occitane, the Four Piece Fragrance Collection. It’s great that we have two options as well for Women and Men.

In the Women’s option there’s a full size eau de toilette, shower gel, hand cream and body milk, and in the Men’s, a full size eau de toilette, shower gel, aftershave gel and balm. The entire range is beautiful and this TSV is extra special.

Hope you can join us. See you soon.

Time for cake!

    Charlie, sorry to hear about your dog tale – that must have been grim indeed! You can’t ever unsee/unsmell that! Still, you are without a doubt one of the funniest people on TV. You manage to combine ferocious wit, which, half the time, the guests are oblivious to – which only makes it funnier – with being charming and gentlemanly, and weirdly soothing. It is something quite unique. If you ever do a comedy tour, I’ll be the first to buy tickets! x

    Reckon your doggies were well pleased with themselves! Eugh! Hope they are fragrant and groomed to perfection again!
    You deserved that slither of cake after the clean up! Enjoy x

    Hi Shemag… you’re right, for me it wasn’t, perhaps, the biggest slice, although the plate is larger than you think!!

    Charlie 🙂

    Hi Sharon, thank you so much for your, kind, kind words! I’ll show my manager when I’m next in trouble! Haha! I sometimes have to reign myself in a little (or a lot!) – I’m not sure everyone gets me!

    All the best

    Janet. Thank you! Honestly, it was the worst ‘dog bathing’ I’ve ever encountered… I’ll say no more… I shiver to think about it… I took a photo and almost tweeted it, but thought better of it!! They now smell divine!

    All the best
