I hope all’s well. Firstly congratulations to Coral Laws the lucky winner of my gourmet food competition – hopefully you received her prize in time for the Easter break. Many thanks to all of you that took the trouble to enter.
I know Easter was a bit of a washout and it hasn’t got much better since – but Richard Jackson has promised better weather to come!
That fills me with a sense of foreboding as Richard is a dear mate of mine and a brilliant gardening expert – he is also a dreadful weather forecaster and when he says it’s going to be sunny I instinctively reach for my wellies! I hope you can join Richard, Kathy Tayler and I this Sunday for Richard Jackson’s 20th Anniversary four-hour special. I’ll be taking over from Kathy at 11am and I can’t wait – it’s set to be a great show.
I’ve tried almost all of Richard’s Flower Power range over the years but I haven’t tried the latest version of his premium plant food as it now includes bio-active technology. There’s a great opportunity to try it out as he has a tub containing two bags of the new formulation as our Gardening Pick of the Month – as such it’s a great saving and is delivered to you without any P&P!
Richard’s celebrations are part of what is set to be a stupendous weekend at The Q starting on Friday as it’s Diamonique Day. We’ll be showcasing a sparkling Today’s Special Value three-row, tennis-style friendship bracelet in a choice of four finishes – yellow or rose gold plate, rhodium or tri-colour plated. Each one is wrapped around a core of precious sterling silver and set with around a 123 stunning round-cut simulated diamonds and over 6 carats of diamond equivalent weight. The design combines the luxurious, timeless appeal of a tennis bracelet with the sizing flexibility of a friendship bracelet, due to its adjustable sliding clasp.
I’ll be presenting three hours on the day starting with Diamonique Favourites at 11am, followed by Diamonique Statements at midday then back at 2pm with Michelle Mone for Diamonique. Our theme for this special day is ‘We love Diamonique’. Not just because we obviously do, but because we know so many of our customers do too. Take a look at what they have to say…
If that wasn’t enough on Saturday we have an exciting TSV from brilliant British spa skincare brand Elemis, in the form of the six-piece Head to Toe Overnight Radiance Skin Collection. As always it’s at an unbelievable price and available in 4 Easy Pay instalments! It includes the New Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix and the New Frangipani Monoi Body Polish. Our value for money compared to buying direct is incredible and if you follow me on Twitter I hope to be able to tweet a link before the weekend so that you can order yours early.
I always like to include a photo from home in my blogs, so I thought I’d post this pic of Ellie selecting a fabric for her new bed. I posted it on twitter (@dalefranklintv) and it attracted quite a few likes, thank you if yours was amongst them.
Until next time… stay verdant, sparkling and fragrant.
