Fun with Amanda, Greek natural beauty and up with the tree!


Hello! Hope you are well, how are Christmas preparations going for you? I must admit I am always so glad at this point that I started mine early and have been doing bits throughout the year. I actually went up to Oxford Street last week to get some extra bits and I lasted two hours, it was mayhem! I know I am biased but so much easier doing it all with QVC! Remember our last shopping day is Wednesday 20th December so its not too late.

So a few things to report this week:

Great fun with the wonderful Amanda Holden for her Christmas BundleBerry visit to QVC this week. I just adore working with her – she has amazing star quality yet is so down to earth and lovely. I am so glad her range is doing well and really being enjoyed by many of the QVC family.

I have been trying out the Greek natural skincare range Korres. Do you remember when we had the rose oil from the range as a Beauty Pick of the Month? It’s a wonderful range full of natural premium plants, flowers, fruits and herbs from Greece and if you are looking to increase the naturals in your beauty routine, you’ll really like it.

I have been trying out the Castanea range for the last couple of weeks; the serum, eye cream and dry cream moisturiser and the fruity bathing products. I wasn’t sure how I would get on with the moisturiser as my skin generally is more combination than dry but in this icy cold weather actually my skin had become very dry so this has been perfect. I really like the serum too, it has the texture of an essence and sinks right in and leaves a wonderful radiance to the skin ready for the protective, softening quality of the moisturiser.

I ordered my first wine hamper from Laithwaite’s this week too – time to bring on the festivities!

Finally as you can see in the photo my little Swedish paper Christmas tree I bought from Home Reflections three years ago is up. Some friends tease me saying how bare it looks but I rather like its simplicity and I dress with handmade ornaments I have picked up over the years at Christmas markets and some illuminated gifts boxes from QVC. It always makes me smile when I first switch the lights on!

That’s it for this week, send you a big warming hug for these cold days and hope you can join me for the Korres show on Tuesday 19th at 2pm.

Bye for now!
