Are you feeling festive yet? I certainly am! I’ve always been someone who gets into the Christmas spirit early and I absolutely HAVE to get my tree on the first weekend in December. So it’s up and decorated in classic gold and red, as it is every year. I simply adore the smell it brings into the house too! Here’s a photo of how I’ve decorated – as you can see, no tinsel for us, but that’s not my decision… I may be in charge of decorating, but my Finace does not like tinsel so we go without! What do you think? And yes, the tree we bought is a little wonky! Let’s just say it adds charm?!
I am always interested in how people decorate their own tree – I like it all really, whether it be classic colours or a bit of everything – it’s all just great fun! We have some great decorations at QVC if you haven’t already got yours up or you’re looking for some more to add to the collection. I like to add some more every year! This year we’ve had to keep all the special glass baubles near the top, as Monty’s tail is a bit lethal if it goes near the bottom half!
I’ve begun my Christmas shopping, in amongst booking bands and deciding on flowers for the wedding next year – lots of decisions to make! Working at QVC is making life easier though, as I keep seeing things on shows and thinking how perfect they would be for a particular family member. One thing I am loving on QVC Style at the moment is the Diamonique shows – we have some amazing pieces that would make great gifts at very low prices. I had a show the other day which featured a big square cut Diamonique stone ring for just £20!
As you can see from the picture, I was very excited! What a gift to receive!
There are also plenty of pieces from the Diamonique range that are packaged it fun baubles for Christmas presents, which is a lovely touch.
I’ll be joining you tomorrow and Friday on QVC Style, which I am really looking forward to, especially looking at the Big Deal we have running this week. It’s an Aimee Kestenberg bag that comes in a few different colours and it’s a great price this week for a leather handbag. Perfect for a gift or as your own treat for getting all the Christmas shopping done! Ha!
The other Big Deals on the Beauty and Christmas channels are pretty excellent gifts too. We have a huge set from Philosophy that includes three Bath & Shower Gels and three Eau de Toilettes. The great thing is, it comes with three gift bags too so you can give these away in little sets, which is a lovely idea. Price-wise I think this is great, as you can give a really nice gift of shower gel and fragrance for around the £15 mark.
The Christmas Big Deal this week is for those children in your life who you’d like to get away from the screens and get more active. It’s the Garmin Vivofit Junior 2 Activity Tracker with a spare band. It has all sorts of great features to keep kids on the move and would be great if you have some in your family who like to work towards goals or enjoy routine.
That’s it from me for this week – I’m off to get some more Christmas shopping done and listen to some more wedding bands to decide on one for our big day which is (gasp) only four months away now! I hope you’re all enjoying your advent time and that you’re managing to tick off everything on the inevitably long list we all have at this time of year.
