Getting fresh and fragrant thanks to QVC!


From fresh homes to fresh fragrance, QVC has it all! Hi everyone, I just thought I’d write a quick blog to tell you about  a couple of things coming up soon on our channel of wonder!

Firstly, we have a Today’s Special Value offer from Bissell launching on Tuesday the 13th of September at midnight and featuring throughout the day of the 14th. It’s the most amazing carpet cleaner which also has attachments for cleaning lots of other things, too, like upholstery and mattresses!

I spent some time with the Bissell team a few days ago to learn more about the company and this great offer. I found it quite remarkable that the company have been around since 1876 and are still a family run business. I was also surprised to learn they created the first ever carpet sweeper in the 1880s! I suppose you could say they know a thing or two about carpets after all these years.

The value we are offering with Bissell is astonishing! It’s actually not very far off half the price you’d pay if you bought direct from them!

Enough about the value, let’s talk performance. This was demonstrated to me when I met with Bissell to get acquainted with the offer. It cleans sooooo thoroughly! I saw it with my own eyes on carpets and upholstery. Even getting permanent marker and mascara out of a cushion wasn’t a problem.

Now, I don’t have carpets in my home but I do have a three-piece suite which has seen far better days. I also have two grown children and two cute little fur-ball cats whose hairs and mess get absolutely everywhere. So I was jumping at the chance to try it for myself.

I tackled just one armchair to trial the Today’s Special Value offer. Wow. I knew there’d be embedded dirt but wasn’t quite prepared for what ended up in the dirty water container! I chose sofas which would help to conceal the pet hairs and dirt so the visible difference between the clean armchair and the sofas is not particularly apparent, although it does look refreshed. This actually  highlighted to me just how much dirt can hide in our, apparently clean, carpets and furniture!

Here’s a before and after pic of the chair but I think the dirty water tank is what really says it all! Eww! Hope you’re not eating right now. So, my thoughts on it? An absolute must have if you want a professional level of cleaning in your home but without the massive expenses involved with a professional clean.

So now onto the fragrant part of this blog… on the 18th of September, which is our Beauty Day, we are launching Floris Fragrance. I have a whole hour with them at 5pm. They are a British Brand born in London and are 286 years old this yearTheir store at 89 Jermyn Street has been in the same place for all that time and are the oldest, independent, family run perfumer in the world.

They are also the only perfumer to Her Majesty the Queen. In fact, they have two Royal Warrants, one for Prince Charles and one for Her Majesty the Queen. Their products are a mix of classic timeless scents and modern fragrances with each one perfect for gifting. Take a look at this beautiful ladies coffret. Isn’t it stunning? Classy and elegant and the fragrances are simply divine.

Well, I do hope you’re well and enjoying the odd bit of sunshine we’re still getting a little of. See you soon on the old telly box.

Love Catherine xx
