Gosh, it’s been a few weeks since my last blog! I’ve been so ridiculously busy, but finally a day off and a chance to sit down with my laptop. I’m freelance, so as well as my two day a week contract with QVC, I spend a lot of time zooming around the country doing other presenter/journalist things.
This week alone I’ve been media training some senior Army officers in Buckinghamshire, filming an industry awards ceremony in London and helping prepare a news piece for a military exercise in Wiltshire. Plus, I’m writing a novel so any spare time has been spent dashing off a few more chapters of that. I love to be busy though, so it’s all good!
Now – let’s talk about nails. Mine are DREADFUL. Always have been. They break, split, flake, and do everything in fact other than look all nice, shiny and glossy at the ends of my fingers. It never really mattered too much before, as when I worked in news there were no hand close-ups. Now though, it’s a whole different ball game – EEK!
So, since I started at QVC I’ve been trying various products to try to improve my stupid nails. So far, no real joy, so I’m just keeping them short and nail-varnished and hoping for the best. However I’ve just got my hands on some Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat which has pretty good reviews on the QVC website and which a little bird tells me may be part of a Today’s Special Value item in the near future. I’m starting with it today – I’ll let you know how I get on.
I’ve also been given some new Ultrasun sun cream to try. I bought some when I first arrived at QVC and took it on holiday to Barbados, and it was great. The new ones are different factors and formulations, so I can’t wait to try them. Although looking out of the window, I think I may be waiting a while…
In other news, my work-in-progress dressing room at QVC now has a proper mirror (pictured above). If you compare it to the picture I posted in an earlier blog, you can see the difference. Hurray!
That’s it for now – I promise I’ll blog again soon!
Have a lovely week.
Love Jackie x
