December countdown


Hi everyone!

Hope you’re enjoying all the preparations for Christmas now that we are officially in December! Are we all organised? Well, if like me, you’re not – don’t panic, QVC has it all in hand. I have done quite a bit of Christmas shopping of late, but the only problem is there are one or two pressies for my good self in amongst it all!

Still, it’s only once a year as they say! So what have I been treating myself to?

Well, check out the Look of the Week and you’ll notice some fab earrings…

They then took me on a rabbit trail, and I treated myself to this gorgeous Bronzo Italia watch in the Rose option (well it will actually be a present from my brother, which I will give to my hubby, who’ll then wrap it and give to my brother, who’ll then give to me!! You get the general drift I’m sure!)


Actually, as I write this blog, it’s a fab Skechers Today’s Special Value today and I made sure I got in early for the black. As someone who has struggled over the years for comfy footwear, I have utterly fallen in love with this brand and I’m delighted they do boots too now. Do you remember the previous Today’s Special Value (on the right)?


Two of my neighbours who pop in for coffee now and again turned up a few weeks ago both sporting them! (Different colours, of course!)

My final indulgence, following on from the hugely successful Centigrade Today’s Special Value, last week is a stunning reversible coat which has 26 5 star reviews! You know how so often when something is a 2 in 1 it doesn’t really work? (I have had my fair share of washer/dryers over the years, but then maybe I’ve just been buying the wrong brand!) well, I can honestly say with this one, I truly can’t make up my mind which way I prefer to wear it – both are equally fab.

It will be getting its first airing on Wednesday to the theatre (‘Phantom of the Opera’) with my lovely friend Fiona.

So – dates for the diary.

Well, the 14th and the 16th are both in mine (Cozee Home and Links of London Today’s Special Values), but what about this week?

It’s going to take every bit of willpower to resist the Lulu Guiness Today’s Special Value this Friday! I hope you love it! I’m in on Friday, but I can assure you I’ll be avoiding those hours like the plague! Lol!


I have a lovely hour at 11am with the fabulous Tova that day, doesn’t she just look amazing? I could listen to her all day! Join me also for some great gift ideas on Saturday at 1pm with Decleor.

But this weekend’s highlight for me is…

*tah dah* (that’s my attempt at a drum roll by the way)

Bareminerals Christmas Today’s Special Value! It’s beautiful!



Now, I’m not going to drone on (as I usually do) about how much I love this brand and their incredible mineral foundation (you can check out previous blogs if you want to know why I love it so much), but I will say that you have one seriously stunning eye shadow stick and an amazing lip colour – as well as all your firm favourites – in the most beautiful gold bag.

I know this is going to be very popular and lines will be busy, so we have all been forewarned, as they say!

I’ll be on with it in the morning show this Sunday and then a full hour with the girls at 11am, so please tune in.

Other than that, I’ll catch up with you on Monday afternoon for some Clarks and cheeky wee bit of Bibi Bijoux!

Have an awesome week y’all,

Big warm hugs,
Anne xx
