Rainy days in Italy


Hello, I hope you’re all well. We are all a bit snotty and coughy in our house – can’t tell if it’s a bug that won’t shift or hayfever, either way it’s very annoying! But hooray for June! It’s finally getting warmer and the kids can play outside.

Scott and I went to Lake Como in Italy for a few nights, Scott had to work in Milan so we tied the trip to that and Granny once again stepped in. Thank you mum. The hotel was amazing. It had an infinity pool over-looking the lake. We hired a car and drove around to different towns, and took a boat out over the lake… but it rained the whole time! We were gutted! But still enjoyed ourselves and the food was amazing. Maybe we’ll get to go back one day in the sunshine.

Anyway, thankfully the sun has been shining back home and the kids have been trying out some of the new Joules pieces for kids that we have at QVC.

Izzy is wearing the Go Lightly rain jacket and Josh the Screenprint T-Shirt. Joules is definitely one of my favourite brands here at QVC. We offer their range for men and women and the quality is always amazing. We also now have their homeware range. I love their Fruit Stripe Duvet set.

We have our annual Summer Fashion Event live on QVC on Friday and Saturday this week, with a new brand joining us at the Q! Monsoon. How exciting is that? I’ll be launching it on Friday 7th June at 6pm. I hope you can join me. If you want to shop ahead, some items are already on our website – I love the Zia Zebra Print dress and the and the Alice Animal Print Jumpsuit. The best part – every item featuring in the Event online and on air has just £1.95 P&P!


Of course the 7th is the 1st Friday of the month, which means it’s Gok time! We will be having lots of fun at 8pm so pop it in your diary and don’t miss it!

Another exciting piece of news for you is that we have a mini-series with the lovely IT Cosmetics ladies starting on Monday June 10th at 6pm and running at the same time on Tuesday and Wednesday – I’ll be hosting the first show with our expert guest and make-up artist Rose Gallagher so make sure you join us then. My personal favourite item is this great Foundation which I absolutely love to wear!

Even better than that – we’ll be running a Twitter competition where one of you lucky people can win over £800 worth of IT Cosmetics products simply by listening out for and tweeting a key word from each of the three shows with myself, Catherine and Pipa. All you have to do is watch, listen and tweet to have a chance of winning!

The winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday night so listen out for my hashtag on Monday and good luck to all who enter – I wish I could myself, what a prize!!

The Big Deals this week are: a Phase Eight foil top, Pestle and Mortar Discovery collection and Walk Fit Orthotic insoles.

Thanks for reading my blog and I look forward to seeing you all on Friday – it’s gonna be a fun night!

Lots of love

Alex xx
