I’ve had a lovely trip away since my last blog. As part of my mum’s Christmas present my three sisters and I said we’d take her away for a family weekend in March, when the weather got a little better. Remarkably, it was the first time all five of us had been away together as adults, mainly due to several of us living in different countries for long periods (Ireland, UK, Japan and Australia over the years) so this was SUCH a treat not just for mum but for all of us.
As my sisters and mum now all live in Ireland, it made sense for me to go over there, so we booked a weekend in beautiful Cork. We stayed in Kinsale (so pretty!), but travelled around a bit too, although the weekend was mostly about shopping, chatting, eating and laughing (SO much laughing!). Inevitably the conversation often turned to the sister who was not with us – sister number five, Deborah, died nearly seven years ago – but it was all about happy memories and how proud she would now be of her three gorgeous children, who are growing up to be such wonderful girls.
The weekend was over far too soon but we’ve vowed to do it all again next year – I’m already looking forward to it. Here are a few pictures from the weekend – a fabulous location with some of my favourite people in the world.
I’m abruptly changing the subject now – hands up who’s got a problem with unwanted hair? I don’t mind admitting that as a woman whose natural hair colour is almost black (like my sisters, see above!) my body hair is also dark, and I’ve tried pretty much everything over the years – shaving, waxing, bleaching, plucking, you name it! In recent years though I’ve decided laser is the way to go and have had great success with a couple of home laser hair removers I’ve tried.
There’s a new one coming to QVC as the Today’s Special Value on Friday 24th March, and I must say it’s the best one I’ve tried yet – really quick and painless, and the before and after shots I’ve seen are very impressive. It’s the SensiLight by Sensica, and uses RPL (reactive pulsed light) which is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This damages it, permanently reducing hair growth. Anyone with hair colour darker than their skin colour can use it and it’s going to have a 60 day money back guarantee so definitely worth a try if you struggle with unwanted hair.
I’ll be launching it with Ruth Frances at midnight on Thursday so if you have any questions please leave them under this blog or tweet me (@jackiekabler) and we will do our best to answer them all.
That’s it for now!
Love Jackie x
