Ibiza-style celebrations, Wotton fun & Alpha-H!



Hope you are well and caught some sunshine over the weekend. What was it like where you are?

Last week was a great week and this week looks really exciting too! The big news is the Alpha-H Today’s Special Value I am launching!! I am beyond excited. I have never launched a beauty TSV before and I’m absolutely honoured its Alpha-H.

It’s a brand that I dabbled with in the past, and having this coming up means I have immersed myself in the world of Alpha-H; learning more about the products and road-testing the TSV with incredible results. Kathy even said to me after I removed my make-up live on the lunchtime show on Friday, “Craig you skin looks as good with or without make-up!!” What a compliment!



It’s £111 worth of product for under £39, including the QVC bestselling Liquid Gold formula, a supersize cleanser and a brand new eye product. Watch the video below to find out a little more, and of course, make sure you join me at midnight on Wednesday night, or for the Breakfast Show repeats on Thursday morning. This is one I think you will need to get in early for!!

Looking back then to last week, I met up with my Ibiza crew (as I affectionately call them) as it was Solenn’s hen-do before her wedding at the end of the month. Unconventionally, it was a mixture of guys and girls. We had so much fun drinking cocktails and dancing at an open top bar in Brixton – it felt like we were in Ibiza all over again!


Then this last weekend I was down in Dorking with my colleague and friend Debbie Flint as part of her fundraising event for Medical Detection Dogs – amazing charity, amazing dogs and incredible day! We also had fun on the train home with Patrick Hoy.


And on Sunday I had a lovely London tourist day with Ginetta and her daughter Emma. The sun shone for us as we took a river cruise, visited Maltby Street Food Market and took in the view from the Walkie Talkie building. All in all a wonderful time!



Thank you so much for reading my blog and welcome for the first time if you have come over from Facebook. I reply to all comments so please do post below.

Big, big hugs, and of course see you for the Alpha-H Today’s Special Value launch on Wednesday night!

    Hi Craig I always read and enjoy your blogs. It is good that you are presenting a beauty tsv you will be able to put another perspective on skin care. I have never used Alph H as I have dry skin so not sure if it would suit me perhaps you could ask the question as there must be others who would like to know. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Marie,

    Thanks so much for your kind comments. I really enjoyed the TSV and it was a lovely change for me.

    I have to say that Alpha h is great for all skin types, even dry. On sensitive skin you use a damp cotton pad with the liquid gold to dilute it a bit.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    Have a great weak and stay in touch.

    Take care
