I am writing this blog in the beautiful Lake District, where we have escaped to for a quick midweek mini break. I actually can’t believe I’ve never spent any time here before, and I’ve been absolutely blown away by how stunning this part of the country is. My presenter colleague and friend Kathy Tayler has often told me it’s her favourite place in the world, and I can see why.
I’ve been running (of course!) in the mornings in the woods and hills, which has been wonderful, if hard on the legs! And so far we’ve explored the areas around Ullswater and Windermere, and today are heading for Coniston Water and planning to visit Beatrix Potter’s house. We’ve also loved walking the grounds of Lowther Castle, drinking hot chocolate at the top of the Kirkstone Pass, trekking up to the Aira Force waterfall… so many wonderful places to see, I could stay for weeks!
I also made a couple of new friends (see photo below!) who seemed to rather like my Du Jour dress when I ditched the jeans and shorts for an evening and dressed up for dinner. Well, they certainly smiled a lot, even though they weren’t very talkative…
Anyway, I’ll keep this brief as I’m on leave, but I always keep my finger on the QVC pulse so just a couple of things to tell you about that you might want to keep an eye out for this week. First, the first ever Today’s Special Value offer from fashion brand Phase Eight. It’ll be on air tomorrow (Wednesday 29th) and is a scoop neck tunic designed especially for us at QVC. It comes in five colours and sizes 8 to 18 and is one of those classic “dress it up, dress it down” tops perfect for this time of year.
Then on Sunday 2nd June (how can it be nearly June already?!) we have a Today’s Special Value offer from Revitalash. This is my seventh year working for QVC and this product is still right up there in my top ten best QVC buys of all time. I’m never without it and it’s one of the best beauty products I’ve ever tried in terms of significant, noticeable results for me – my eyelashes have been transformed! (I’m also a big fan of its sister product, Revitabrow, which definitely saved my eyebrows after I accidentally shaved half of one of them off. Long story…)
Anyway the Today’s Special Value offer is the fantastic Revitalash lash conditioner plus the primer mascara. If your lashes need some TLC, I can’t recommend this set highly enough.
Right, back to my mini break. By the time you read this I’ll be back at work so see you soon!
