If you go down to the woods today…


Hi again!

First, thanks so much for all the lovely comments on social media during and after Rick Stein’s first show with us last week. He was honestly the nicest, sweetest man, and admitted he was really nervous before the show as it was something very different for him. But as I think you all agreed, he did absolutely brilliantly! I thoroughly enjoyed working with him – and tasting his delicious food – and I hope it’s not too long before we see him again. It’s so nice when people you admire from the telly are just as lovely in real life, and he definitely didn’t disappoint.

Jackie and Rick Stein

Now I know summer is set to return this weekend for parts of the country, but there’s really been a feel of autumn in the air over the past couple of weeks. I have a new favourite running route at the moment – it’s part of the Cotswold Way, which I’m lucky enough to live close to, and is a delightful area of fields and woodland. I went out early one morning last week when it was really misty, and it was so beautiful that I just had to take a few photos on my phone. The leaves have already started falling and it just looked magical. I do love living in a country where we have changing seasons. Isn’t nature wonderful?

In the woods

If you like a wander in the woods, Emu’s Today’s Special Value offer on Monday 3rd September will be right up your street. The company is known for its premium Australian sheepskin, and is bringing us a pair of water resistant, button-down boots, with memory foam insoles for added comfort, absolutely perfect for a British winter. There’ll be five shades to choose from – classic Black, Charcoal and Chestnut, and then two “trend” colours, Metallic and Red Wine – and they’ll be available in sizes 3 to 9.

Emu Ore boots

Talking of fashion, we have some very exciting new brands coming to QVC over the next little while, including a jeans range which I can’t wait to try, so keep your eyes peeled!

That’s it for now – don’t forget you can also keep in touch with me on Twitter (@jackiekabler) and Instagram (@officialjackiekabler).

Love Jackie x

    Lovely photo Jackie. So nice to capture a moment, or a scene. Taking a photo makes you really look and appreciate natural beauty which is easily taken for granted. Happy snapping! X

      That’s my problem Janet…I keep stopping during runs to take photos! Need to run more and snap less but it’s just toooo pretty!
