Firstly, can I just apologise in advance as my blog will be considerably shorter than usual today – I had an early start at QVC and have quite simply run out of time.
Thanks to those of you who have been commenting today about my on-air look.
I created the make-up look myself using the fabulous Lights of Venice Today’s Special Value from Laura Geller, launching at midnight tomorrow.
I think the packaging is really lovely and will make a great Christmas gift. The only choice is in the Balance and Glow illuminating foundation, but there is so much more to the collection including a beautiful shade of blusher, fabulous bronzy eyeshadow crayon, two lip products, liquid eyeliner and the iconic mascara – which I hadn’t tried before. I’m loving it, and I hope you will too if you order it.
It is supposed to be my weekend off, but I couldn’t possibly miss Laura. Our show is at 3pm and I also have a L’Occitane show at midday.
Speaking of Today’s Special Values, yesterday we had Peony flowers and I decided to set you a little challenge – no prizes, just a bit of fun!
Take a look at these three photos of phalenopsis orchids. Can you tell which are real and which are fake between the pale, mid colour pink and deeper pink?
I’ll let you know next week, and I won’t be surprised if some of you get it wrong as the Peony ones are so realistic.
I also thought I’d share a picture of my Christmas cactus which is laden with buds already.
I think it is going to be in full flower way before the ‘big’ day itself, although I will have to buy a new poinsettia. Mine is in the conservatory and is now over two foot high, but no sign of any red flowers.
I have decided to give Focus on Fashion a break until the new year with so much else to write about in the run up to Christmas. If you need a fashion fix, you can always check the Style List on our website for a heads-up on a lot of the different QVC fashion brands. I will keep updating you with the shows I’m doing; Centigrade next Thursday and Fashion on Friday next week is Kim & Co with Carla.
I will be doing a new blog on my website over the weekend and sending out a new newsletter on Monday announcing the winner of my signed Liberty Sands trilogy books. I’ll also be letting you know how you can get hold of an exclusive short story, so do feel free to sign up. You’ll also read an update with my charity news – an exciting development which I’ll share with you on here next week.
It’s Bonfire Night tomorrow – our cats don’t go out, but please keep your pets in as they are not as keen on fireworks as we are.
Have a great weekend,
