Hello hello! I have so much to share with you this week, from QVC UK’s big birthday to Bareminerals and boots – the three B’s.
Let’s start with a happy birthday for QVC UK! 25 years old and standing strong and proud. It is an exciting time here as we have broadened our channels, and for me personally (I am very proud to have been with the Style channel since its launch back in 2016). We have also welcomed in new presenters which has been great fun. I want to add here that the QVC presenting team are remarkable and many have been here since almost the start. They really are such a fabulous, warm and fun family to be part of and I have made some friends for life here. Our team backstage and in production are pretty awesome too and work their socks off to make the cogs run smoothly to help us do our job.
You may have noticed that we have been celebrating our birthday with various promotions over the last month and we are going to keep the good times rolling a little bit longer by adding an Easy Pay event for you. You at home, our wonderful loyal ladies and gents are a HUGE part of making this all work so we want to celebrate with you too! Take a look now and treat yourself. You absolutely deserve it.
Talking about treating yourself, perhaps you might like to see this lovely set from Bareminerals. Actually the very first thing I ever bought from QVC was from Bareminerals. It was a powder eyeliner, lip gloss and rose blush for the cheeks. I still use the eyeliner almost every day! I’m not kidding. Look how well loved this is. I’ve also added some of my regular favourites which are very similar to our Big Deal this week. My shade is Medium Beige and glosses from BM are incredible and last for ages both on the lips and in the tube. I always have this one in my handbag as it’s my everyday colour. By the way, the cover underneath is from Alison Cork‘s interior range – I recently treated my home : )… and me.
I’m sure you’ll have seen gorgeous SJ – Sarah-Jane Froom – on your sets before. This super-talented woman has been in the business for over 20 years and worked with some true mega stars, she is an international make-up artist for Bareminerals and brand ambassador for them at QVC. There isn’t much she doesn’t know about make-up and how to make us gals feel great. I love it when SJ is at Q as she is so much fun to work with and incredibly generous with her knowledge and insider tips.
Have a look here to see what I mean. This is our Beauty Big Deal and it’s a little cracker!

Here is a pic of us before our show last week. I should also add she has fantastic style too!
Turning the attention on fashion, as you know I love my clothes. Now it’s got a wee bit chillier it’s time to pack away the shorts and dig the trousers out. Have you tried Women with Control trousers? I think these are great for holding the tum and waist area in and isn’t that what we all want? It just gives you that bit more confidence and they are great if jeans aren’t your thing. They are easy trousers and hassle free for everyday wear. It’s important to have some staple wardrobe items that don’t need too much work or fuss and these are them.
I’m not sure I really need to say anymore here. They look fabulous, they feel incredible – now go out and look like the most stylish woman on your street!
In this pic I was wearing a beautiful vintage dress that my mum bought in Edinburgh when I was only ten! I recently wore it to my dear friend’s wedding in Wales. Here it is again – this wasn’t how I drove to the wedding haha. I don’t think this car has left this spot for about 20 years!
I’m going to leave you on that wonderful design. In my next blog I’ll be sharing some snapshots of some of my many hair styles and some of the less great choices I’ve made over the years and why my hair has been in desperate need of some TLC… thank goodness for Philip Kingsley is all I’m saying at this point.
Have a great weekend and keep your messages coming in. It’s always a pleasure to hear from you.
