Earlier this week I received an email from Andrew Bagley from Gatineau. It appeared to be just a PDF of the brochure for this year’s Henley Regatta – for a minute I got quite excited as I thought Andrew was extending an invitation to attend – but then I read the one line email:
‘Check out the couple on page three!’
I had to laugh! The official photographer had captured a shot of Andrew and my daughter Sophie walking along the path together and used it in the brochure – take a look at the photo above. The really funny thing is that they were not there together and ran in to each other by chance for a maximum of five minutes! Just goes to to show though, you never know who may be watching!
Mentioning Andrew, if you love Gatineau they are the featured Today’s Special Value during our next Beauty Day on Sunday 24th April. Unfortunately, I won’t be in that day as I will be at Wembley watching Crystal Palace take on Watford in the FA Cup semi-final… come on you Eagles!
Focus on Fashion this week has to draw your attention to the great Kipling bag that is featuring at midnight tonight and kicking off our Easter Weekend on QVC.
It’s available in a choice of plain colours along with prints and is a really good size, with two big compartments either side of the main compartment. Join Marie-Francoise and myself tomorrow at 2pm and 5pm if you can’t wait up until midnight tonight, although some of the colour options may well sell out early.
More fashion to watch out for over the weekend is by Susan Graver. In the early days of QVC UK, Susan herself used to visit. However such is the popularity of her range in America, where she has fixed weekly shows on QVC US on a Sunday and a Thursday, now we don’t get to see her that often. Fortunately, we have an expert UK-based guest in the form of Lesley Ebbetts to give us all the information and styling tips we need.
There is a lovely drapey cardigan to watch out for in a choice of six colours – the Kiwi Green or the Brilliant Blue will be perfect for spring and summer. There is also a LOGO by Lori Goldstein Today’s Special on Tuesday 29th – I still wear my red and cream striped top with the lace trim at least once a week!
Well as I mentioned, I am on air tomorrow – Good Friday – but I am off for the rest of Easter. If you are too and have a little time on your hands to read a couple of books, check my webpage www.juliarobertsbooks.co.uk for the link to be able to purchase the Kindle version of my novels for just 99p each instead of £2.99.
It’s an Easter promotion so you could say: ‘Eggstra, Eggstra! Read all about Holly, Harry, Philippe and co!’
If you get them this weekend, you should just about be ready for book three by the end of May. I have started working on the cover this week and should be able to share it with you in a couple of weeks’ time.
Have a great Easter weekend, whatever you have planned, and enjoy your chocolate eggs – I’m hoping for Lindt Excellence, fingers crossed – and hot cross buns!
After tomorrow, I’m not on-air until next Thursday when my hours will be 2pm with Kim & Co and 4pm with Liz Earle (can you believe it’s the 20th anniversary? – I wonder how many of you remember the colour of the original packaging?)
