Gosh, where does the time go?


Jill and Lulu before the showToday, as I write my blog, it is a beautiful day and has the feeling of spring in the air.

I hope you had a wonderful Easter with family and friends and ate chocolate galore! We love to treat ourselves to delicious Easter eggs in the Franks household and, as you all know, it’s Cadburys Cream Eggs all the way. But a little surprise appeared on Easter morning  with the ultimate Easter egg from Leonidas chocolates.

I discovered these Belgian chocolates many years ago and once ate a whole box walking the length of Oxford Street in London. They were meant to be a gift so I had to go back and get another box. We have them for special treats at Christmas and for birthdays.

Easter eggThey were created by American confectioner, Leonidas Kestekides, but it is REAL Belgian chocolate. Trust me, I can vouch for that. My Easter egg was beautifully wrapped in yellow chick ribbon and was filled to the brim with Leonidas chocolates.

I have the best Nespresso cappuccino machine that, over the years, has produced hundreds of the best cappuccinos for family and friends, and with a Leonidas chocolate it’s the perfect marriage. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have these brands on QVC…

I am sure we will one day.

Jill and Lulu before the showQVC has been so busy with Lulu’s jewellery range. I had to make two purchases after the show. The hoop crystal black earrings and Lulu’s crystal armour ring. We had and always have so much fun and we go back a long way together to my days as a professional dancer. She is honestly adorable and a true Peter Pan of this world.

Thought you might like to see this pic of us when I was in my teens performing in a Royal Variety Performance at Drury Lane theatre in Covent Garden. Then look at the picture of us on Sunday preparing for her jewellery show (at the top). Proof that she is the Peter Pan of this world! I have a stocking cap to protect my hair ready for my show wig and full on-stage makeup but little else by the looks of it.

Join me next week on QVC as I have some incredible shows for you and brace yourself for our Lulu Guinness Today’s Special Value offer on Saturday night. I haven’t seen it yet but the handbag queen will have a sneaky look for you and report back.

Have a great week
Stay happy and healthy,

Jill Xxxx
