Welcome to my last blog in August and before I’m off on holiday! As I sit here in my living room in London I can hear that all too familiar sound of cars splashing by in puddles and rain hitting hard on my windows. It’s confusing me as I can also see my Ultrasun all lined up for my holidays in three days and yet I’m in a big jumper drinking loads of tea?! More on that later…
This has been a really busy and somewhat celebrity-filled couple of weeks, so let me fill you in on a couple of the highlights. You may know of the range of jewellery that we have here by Lisa Snowdon..? If not take a look as it’s gorgeous! I had the pleasure of interviewing her and finding out what she has been up to lately plus asking for some insider beauty tips. Lisa has been a top model for many years and has lots of fun stories and ideas about fashion and beauty. Here is the link to my Instagram with some pics of us, and the interview itself if you fancy taking a look.
She is so down to earth and sweet and it was a real treat to meet her. Talking of lovely women, cue Alison Cork! The interiors guru and home decor queen. Alison has been working in interiors for many years and has also been on our TV screens advising and helping the nation with her expertise and knowledge. I had the opportunity and may I say utter delight to interview her this week. We had so much fun! Her stories from her childhood were fascinating – a true artist at a tender age- and her quick sense of humour makes her such a joy to be around. Keep an eye out for Alison’s designs here at QVC. I can tell you that there are some real must-haves. I can give you a little clue to some new upcoming treats, if you love fragrance then your senses are in for a real treat…
Let’s move into the subject of why I’m in a big jumper when it’s still summer? There is a short answer here, it’s tipping it down outside!! Grrrrrr! I have a day off today and was so looking forward to going for a run and getting some fresh air. This weather has a whiff of next season which quite frankly I am NOT ready for. I feel like I haven’t had enough of summer!
There is always a silver lining to things though and I’m a firm believer in that. This time it’s two things. One, I can see my holiday suitcase essentials growing larger as I keep adding Ultrasun Glimmer, after sun, Ravel wedges, Vionic flip flops, Ghost dress, Philip Kingsley Elasticiser, Color Wow shampoo, Tarte Man Eater mascara and the list goes on! I wish I had this set from Elemis (pic above) to add, it’s this week’s Beauty Big Deal. I’ll be away but I hope can pick one up as it’s a proper goodie bag.
I am so excited as myself and Elliot are off to Crete! We went last year and fell in love with it so thought let’s explore another part of it this time. I will post some pics on my Instagram over the next two weeks.
The second silver lining to the weather is that we have a truly stunning Big Deal from Peter Kaiser this week but you will have to be so, so fast as they are some of the most beautiful knee boots I’ve seen in a while. These make me want to get my thick tights, oversized jumpers and dresses out for autumn! Love love love them!!!! And even worthy or four exclamation marks.
By the time I return I hope it’ll be the Indian summer that’s been predicted and that you have all been enjoying some relaxing time too. In fact recently I’ve been burning candles to chill out. If like me you love candles you may enjoy this five-piece collection from Price’s, they last for hours and hours!
Okay, I shall call it a wrap here. Sending you all my best and I’ll pop some holiday pics up on Insta and Twitter.
