Looking Back & Looking Forward


So, we are almost at the end of 2016 and what a year it’s been, how has it been for you?

I wanted to thank you very much for all your love and support as part of the QVC family this year and for reading and commenting on my blog. I thought my last blog of the year could be highlights in pictures – all taken from my blog so if you didn’t read them all here’s the best bits:

The QVC Beauty Bash in January – always a great way to star the year!


My first handstand with yoga guru Jessamy at Hot Yoga Society in London Bridge in February


Working with gorgeous Lisa Snowdon in March


A trip to Cornwall to see one of my best friends James in April


Fun on the lunchtime show with friend and colleague Chloe in April


Hanging out with beauty buyer Louisa at CEW awards in May


Cuddles with baby Mia in July


Lunch with mum and friend and colleague Jackie at Posetano in Italy

50th birthday celebrations with my cousin Yvonne in July (how amazing does she look?!)

Family trip to Weston-super-Mare in August

Yoga retreat in August

Another year older in September


Pirate fun on ‘The Lets Go Club’ the children’s show I present for the BBC in October


The curry awards with beautiful Saira Khan in November

Tradition of decorating my friend Emma’s tree in December.


It’s amazing how putting these together reminds me how blessed I am to have these wonderful memories with friends, family and work colleagues.

I do hope you’ve enjoyed my blog this year.
With love, thanks and hugs from the bottom of my heart, best wishes and Happy Happy New Year!
