Hi! I’m Alex and I’m the new presenter on QVC Style, QVC Beauty and QVC Extra! This is my very first blog for the channel and I’m so so so happy to become part of the team and part of the QVC family.
The last few weeks have been all about meeting people, watching the professionals at work and learning from them. Everyone has been so kind and lovely, and I feel very welcome and blessed. This is Julia presenting a show with the lovely Lesley Ebbetts, I’m definitely learning from the best of the best!
One of the things you have done when you start here is have your QVC picture taken. Like most of us I find having my photo taken a painful experience, but thanks to the wonderful make-up and camera teams, I’m very happy! Having some gorgeous outfits to wear was lovely.
On the left I’m wearing the Onjenu London jumpsuit in Black/Lilac. It’s so comfortable and I love how vibrant the colour is. On the right is the Nina Leonard bomber jacket in Rouge with the H by Halston metallic knit pleated maxi skirt. The fashion at QVC is so versatile, there’s something for everyone!
One of the things I’m so happy about here is that I get to work with one of my besties, the lovely Craig Rowe. We’ve been friends for 15 years and he really is as lovely as he is on telly. It was his birthday this weekend and we went down to the Southbank in London. It was a great night. We used to live very close to each other and see each other all the time, but then we both moved and it’s been harder to catch up in person, so to see him at work now is just brilliant!
Whilst the last few weeks have been busy with learning the ropes here, it’s also been busy at home. Both my children have started school! Well, Josh is 3 so he’s started nursery, and Izzy is 4 and has started reception.
Josh has been so ready for nursery, he’s a ball of energy and after hanging out with his big sister’s friends and being made to dress up as a princess he’s thrilled to have some boy mates to play with. Izzy is very lucky in that she already has friends in her class at reception, but she’s found it a bit daunting as it’s a very large intake this year, but she’s getting there and is bringing me home beautiful drawings every day which makes my heart burst with pride. This is Grandpa and Joshie as mermaids – obviously!
We have two very exciting announcements on QVC Style, QVC Beauty and QVC Extra! We will now be LIVE Monday to Friday from 4pm until 6pm on Style and LIVE from 6pm to 7pm on Beauty or Extra, so please do hop over and join us. And the second fantastic bit of news, is that we have our brand new feature ‘The Big Deal’ running every week for you. It runs from Sunday midnight to the following Sunday midnight, so for seven days, while stocks last, and it’s a chance for you to make a brilliant saving on a quality item.
This week it’s the knitted coatigan with pockets from Nina Leonard, in five colour choices. It’s so versatile, and I love the pockets. It’s perfect for the school run or for meeting the girls for a cheeky vino on a Friday night.
But it gets even better, from October 9th not only will QVC Style have a Big Deal, but QVC Extra will have its own Big Deal too! And then, from October 16th QVC Style, QVC Extra AND QVC Beauty will all have Big Deals! So that’s three Big Deals running every week! It’s gonna be crazy!!
I’ll be using them to show you some of the beautiful pieces we have on the channels and what’s coming up, so you can stay ahead of the pack. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my very first blog.
See you soon!
