Gearing up for Christmas


What’s been happening at QVC

It was a real mixed week last week and I had a lot of fun with it! Firstly we launched the gorgeous new home fragrance range Luxenoa from Rylan Clark-Neal. He had his very first experience of a Live QVC show in the Morning Show with myself and Kathy. He was so nice and actually quite nervous before the show. It doesn’t matter how much TV you do, something new is always a little nerve wracking, particularly when you are introducing something you have created yourself. Well he had nothing to worry about because everyone has loved his range. The luxury candles smell incredible, particularly Fuego.

We had a very popular Today’s Special Value day with Lola Rose. I was on with lovely Anna Green and I fell in love with the Lilith Semi Precious Earrings in Green agate. I think I will order them to wear for Christmas.

Lastly I have to mention the Wicked Body Bubble Ball just because it was one of the funniest products I have ever sold on air. If you want to see me trying to take down a man twice my muscle weight then have a watch here. It was very popular but is still available on Waitlist if you want to check it out.

What I’ve been up to

You may wonder if we do anything else other than go for walks on the beach. Well to be honest, a week doesn’t really go by where we don’t! Sometimes it’s just a quick half an hour to get the kids outside, even if it’s cold and windy. It always ends in a hot chocolate and even if the kids moan before we head out they are always so happy once we are there. Rosy cheeks and fresh air is the best. I always wish we could add a dog to the mix for these beach walks, one day we will but we just don’t have the space at home at the moment but I know the kids would adore to chase a dog around on the beach. Ivy is forever going up to people to ask if she can stroke their dogs, she just loves them. She marches up to them bold as brass and says ‘Hi I’m Ivy, please can I stroke your dog’.

What I’ve been wearing

Fred and I got to go to a Christmas lunch with our friends on Saturday. My mum came down to look after the kids for the day so they were thrilled. We went to a lovely restaurant called Maison Sax and there were about 25 of us which is always a bit of a test to a restaurant but they didn’t disappoint. I went for the baked cheese, followed by salmon and then a chocolate torte and it was all gorgeous. I wore my new sequin jacket from Helene Berman, I know I know I showed you one of her coats last week but I can’t help myself, when I love a brand I really do tend to go back to them again and again.

I’m sure I’m not alone in that! This jacket is just fabulous, I love that it’s navy rather than black just for a point of difference to the norm and it’s matte sequins so it’s not too much for a lunch like this one. I teamed it with a MarlaWynne blouse that I’ve had for years, jeans and a pair of heels and I felt like it was the perfect outfit for a day like this. Here I am with one of my best friends, and Godmother to Ivy, Becki. It was so nice for Fred and I to catch up with our friends without chasing kids around the place!

What I’ve been using in Beauty

Two things to tell you about this week, Firstly something a little unusual-looking as you can see from the pictures!! I can’t pretend that my kids haven’t been running around with it on pretending that they are storm troopers from Star Wars! Amazingly though this is way more than a fancy dress mask. It’s actually from LAB Life + Beauty and it is coming your way this Friday (14th December) as your Today’s Special Value. It’s brand new and launching with us at QVC. It’s an LED face mask that gives you customised facials in the comfort of your own home. The different settings and light colours are for anti-ageing, purifying, radiance and balance. It has a remote control for easy use and it also comes with serums to help elevate the results you can get with the mask. It’s beauty on another level!

Next up I am very excited about the Bareminerals TSV which is coming your way on Saturday, but you can order early from today! I just adore the finish you can get with it. I popped by to see SJ from Bareminerals at home to go through the kit with her and have her show me first hand what you can do with it. We filmed a video to give you a really good idea of how to use the kit so please have a watch to get the full picture.

It includes the Original SPF15 Mineral Foundation, I am wearing Medium Beige. It comes with a Beautiful Finish brush too and that is gift-boxed so could be a perfect gift on its own. You then get the Twilight Radiance palette which I have fallen in love with, it’s three gorgeous cream shades to brighten and highlight called Gold Obsession, Luminous Glow and Luminous Bronze. Finally you get three fabulous Moxie lip glosses in Charmer, Dare Devil and 24 Karat, all of which will be perfect for the party season and beyond. Have a watch of the video to see how SJ applied it to me and her tips for doing it at home.

That’s it from me this week, I am off to make a dent in the Christmas shopping. I have got really behind as always. I promised you my Spiced Gin recipe too so I shall make sure to put that in next week in time for Christmas! How are you all getting on, are you ready for Christmas or panic buying like me?! If you want to keep up with how I am getting on follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Lots of love
