Hello! As always I do hope this blog finds you well?
Well, what a weekend it was!
Things kicked off with a bang on Thursday evening with a wonderful few hours at the home of Alison Cork; she had a get together for friends and colleagues who she works with from TV, radio and newspapers and a few of us were invited to go along.
It was a really fun evening and as you might imagine her house is absolutely divine – I did warn her I may never leave, haha! And I got to see the famous ‘Henry the stag’!!
Then over the weekend I caught up with my beloved cousin Vonnie and her husband. They were over from Hong Kong for a big birthday of his and I wasn’t able to make the party but I did see them for a lovely sunny Saturday brunch, it was great fun!
Then on Saturday night it was the night so many of us had been waiting for! The first episode of the new series of ‘Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’ in which the first celebrity to be pranked was our very own QVC Ambassador, Amanda Holden!
So myself, Laura, Emily, Stacey and Jack (Marketing, PR, Director and Engineer at QVC) all got to the ITV studios at 5pm all ready for a quick pre-show drink and catch up before we were taken into the studios for the live show. Oh wow, it was so exciting and what a coo to also be there when Kylie Minogue was performing her 30 years in pop medley – amazing!
When it came to the prank being played out it was such an exciting moment and the audience absolutely loved it along with Amanda’s reaction.
I also felt it showed just how professional QVC is as a company but also the sense of fun we have in what we do. If you didn’t see the show you can watch the whole thing on the ITV hub (catch up service). And be sure to watch out for Stacey and I dancing like loons to Kylie Minogue!
Or to just see the prank itself watch this YouTube link:
Amanda has told me she’ll never trust me again! Haha! Well I think she will after our next show when I launch her spring/summer BundleBerry Today’s Special Value with her on the evening of 7th into 8th March. One of her already iconic pieces in the range is the set of three trunks that have been a top seller since the launch on QVC and for the Today’s Special Value we are launching never seen before colours. I would give you an early warning on the White, Grey and Blush options – I would guess they might be first to go!
I was lucky enough to try out the white set for a few days and as you can see from the photos not only do they look stunning, they are also a brilliant storage solution!
You get a set of three in the offer and here’s how I used them:
Small trunk – perfect for storing beauty, gifts and keepsakes
Medium trunk – I used this in the family room for games, remote controls and the kids’ colouring in bits and pieces
Large trunk – perfect for bedding; I put one of my Kelly Hoppen bedspreads and a couple of pillow shams in mine.
So, do join Amanda and I for the launch at midnight on 7th into 8th March and if you miss that, be sure to watch the Breakfast Show repeat at 7am and 8am!
