My twentieth anniversary and a fabulous Lakeland offer



I just had to pop by and tell you about an amazing Today’s Special Value we’re featuring from Lakeland on Sunday 24th September.

If your house is anything like mine, barely a day goes by when the washing machine’s not running! It’s great in the summer when you can hang the washing outside, but I came back from holiday to torrential rain and not being a huge tumble dryer fan, trying to get four loads of washing dry took forever! So it’s no surprise that I jumped at the chance to try the Lakeland dryer and I must admit, I think I’ve found my new best friend!

Lakeland are still a family run company and are definitely all about problem solving and making household chores easier. The ‘Dry Soon’ which is a three tired heated air dryer is invaluable, drying clothes in just a matter of hours – I’ve even been using mine overnight. It costs around 6p per hour to run, so much more cost effective than a tumble dryer, it has an outer cover so no heat is wasted and you can even lay flat to dry, so no more stretched-out clothes.

I love that the Dry Soon also folds flat and can be neatly tucked behind a door, or could even slide under a bed for storage. With all the school uniforms, PE Kits, football kits, netball kits and dance wear (not to mention normal clothes), it’s the perfect household companion for me. Plus, knowing our climate, I bet it will be used all year round. It’s already got some fantastic reviews and I would urge you to put it to the test using our 30 day money back guarantee! I really don’t think you’ll be disappointed. If you buy it on Sunday, you can even take advantage of the Today’s Special Value Price.

Something else on the schedule to look out for soon is the two hour Decleor Special coming your way on Thursday 29th of September at 7pm. It’s not often I get to indulge in two glorious hours of Decleor, which is a brand I’ve been using for many years now. In fact, early viewers of QVC may remember the Decleor series we ran when I got married. We featured an eight week beauty series on the run up to my wedding in an attempt to get my skin glowing for the big day. The QVC cameras came along to the wedding, plus we had some great photographs in OK magazine which were lovely to keep.

Speaking of my wedding, we have just celebrated our twentieth wedding anniversary this month – my goodness how time flies! I still use some of the key Decleor hero products that I discovered all those years ago, and for me that’s testament to a great brand. You can discover more about the brand when I join Fiona Brackenbury (the education director for Decleor) next week!

See you there,
