Family, friends and ducks!


Hello! Thanks for reading my blog.

I was on a trip to Bristol recently and as always it’s such a treat to see my nieces. Here’s Ruby my middle niece, now six, being her usual adorable, fun self – this photos sums up how much laughing we do!

On the subject of family and friends, here’s my friend Emma, we have known each other since we met studying abroad when were were 21, needless to say that we’ve been friends for over 25 years, where does the time go?

We got together at the weekend to go and see the latest Ruby Wax West End show, it’s very funny and very clever, looking at (in a lighthearted but poignant way), the issue of mental health. And as we had watched the documentary on the BBC about the renovation of the Corinthia Hotel in London, we had a cocktail and dinner there before the show, it was wonderful! In the photo you can see me sipping a Mintology cocktail – delicious! The dinner was amazing too, a really creative menu with amazing British flavours, would definitely love to go again as a treat!

So, June Beauty Month continues all month at QVC, where postage on everything beauty is £1.95, and this week for #MyQVCFind I would like to mention two brands; one being Philosophy, as ever I am in love with anything Pure Grace (as you can see from the supersizes in my bathroom) but more recently have also discovered Amen Eau de Toilette – it has the clean, crispness of Pure but a warmer, muskier heart – I’ve been getting so many compliments wearing it.

The second #MyQVCFind is the men’s grooming range from Elemis. The beard oil is wonderful and I’m almost at the end of the bottle after it launched as part of a Christmas deal last year, and my staple favourites are the Deep Cleansing Facial Wash and the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men, both keep my skin looking really healthy for summer.

Finally, I just wanted to include a picture of these two rather lovely, lovable characters; there is a green just outside the entrance to my gym and these two ducks are often there, and I sometimes sit and just watch them quietly for a few minutes.

I am probably showing my ignorance now but I didn’t know that ducks could live somewhere where there wasn’t a pond or river set out, it has me fascinated. I also noticed that some people leave food out for them and I’m glad to say it’s not bread – one thing I’ve learnt from Richard Jackson is that bread isn’t actually that good for birds!

So have a great week and I will be in touch and I will be here with another blog soon.

Big hugs as always,

Craig X

    Hi craig,
    How beautiful are your niece and your friends and the ducks! Lovely blog! I just adore your little family. I just love that you went to ruby wax too. I saw her and she is brilliant. It’s so sad how so many of us struggle but it’s really not surprising. I sometimes think I should have done something less serious as a career!
    Enjoy your week x
