Family fun and lots of brilliant offers!



Hope you are well? Just when we thought spring had sprung we appear to be back in winter, fingers crossed it’s just a short blip!!

I have had a great week both at QVC and in my home life:

Took a trip last week to see mum in Bristol. She is recovering from heart surgery and we took a trip to Portishead to walk around the marina and have lunch. We were blessed with good weather and mum really enjoyed her day. I have told her to be patient with herself as recovery can take some time, but like me she is impatient and wants to be bounding around!

It was also a great chance to see my darling nieces and here’s little Ruby and I playing silly faces.

Back in London I missed much of the good weather as I was in the studio but did manage to catch one afternoon of sunshine and celebrated with a drink I haven’t had for ages; in Hungary we used to call it (I think!) ‘Vaross Cola’, red wine and cola – I know it sounds strange but it’s so good! If you like sangria you’d like this and as you can see it went down very well!

I did also manage to sneak out of work at one of my lunch breaks and borrowed a deckchair, let’s just say that lunch hour went by way too quickly!

So, a few things to look out for at QVC this week:

A reminder that this week sees the first Big Deal from Decleor, an incredible collection that gives you a full face, body and hand regime and costs almost half the price of just the Aromessence Magnolia Oil! Be sure to get yours now.

Today sees another Today’s Special Value from iconic British jewellery brand Links of London. It’s a pair of earrings from the Love Knot collection that launched last Jewellery Day in silver. These are the matching earrings and there are new vermeil rose and yellow gold options too. Perfect timing for a Love Knot with the royal wedding and wedding season coming!

Another Today’s Special Value this week on Thursday 3rd May that I am launching is the big ‘get ready for summer’ Ultrasun deal. There are two options, Family and Glamour, and the price is brilliant. You have everything you need from sun protection for face, body, aftersun and tan activator. This is one you will definitely want to stock up on!

Then on Bank Holiday Monday 7th of May we will have a Today’s Special Value from RAC; a dash cam to record every journey in your car. I found this dash cam amazingly simple to set up and it makes a real difference driving knowing that any type of incident or accident is recorded and gives you real peace of mind.

Have a look at this video where you can see it in action!

So that’s it from me, have a great week and a lovely bank holiday weekend… see you on here soon!

Big big hugs,
Craig XXX

      Hey Maria,

      Thanks for your message. Mum is on the mend, it’s taking its time but she’ll get there. Thanks for asking.

    Give my best wishes to your mom for her recovery.Slow and steady wins the day, no lifting anything heavier than a kettle , with enough water in to make a drink . Will be worth it after she feels strong and healthy once again.

    Hi Craig,
    I didn’t know your mum had had heart surgery. That’s scary but she looks great already! Hope she takes it slow.
    Where oh where would you be able to borrow a deckchair to sit out in your lunch break?! Other than qvc!
    Catch you soon x

      Hi Susan,

      Lovely to hear from you.

      Yes she did. They kept changing the date but she finally got it done. She is recovering well, I’m really proud of her.

      I know! Where else could you borrow a deckchair! It’s lovely In the sun!

      Enjoy your week. Craig x

    Hi Craig, glad to see you had a lovely Bank Holiday and your Mum is doing really well! Ruby is a real cutie!! We had great weather here too which was really welcome after the horrendous snow we had here in Scotland this winter. We were totally cut off and had to be dug out. We spent Bank Holiday down in Kendal and enjoyed some Pub food and drink outside which was lovely. Had a nice mooch around the shops too.
    Always love watching your shows on QVC. You always make us smile with your sunny nature ! Have a good week. Hugs x

      Hi Jenny!

      Thanks for your comment. Wow sounds like you had a very rough winter! We all think we had a harsh winter down here but it’s absolutely nothing up to what you all experienced up there! You all deserve some lovely sun!!

      Lovely to hear you enjoy my shows :-). Wishing you lots more sun and a great summer.

      Take care

      Craig x
