The UK Jewellery Awards and permanent hair reduction from Iluminage


Hi everyone. I hope you’re all keeping well. I promised a little update on my night at the UK Jewellery Awards – so here it is!

The awards are an annual highlight for the UK jewellery industry. I was proud to attend last year with Graham from Clogau, when they were awarded Jewellery Brand of the Year 2015. They also scooped the top prize for their bridal collection. You may already know but I have designed several pieces with Clogau and they have a very special place in my heart. They kindly allowed me to borrow some diamond pieces from their collection. I felt like a princess in them.

I was delighted to attend again this year. Seated to my left was our lovely Graham and to my right the charming Clare Jones, the Welsh harpist who held the title of Official Harpist to the Prince of Wales from 2007 to 2011. We worked together on the first ever Preseli Bluestone piece for Clogau. It was great catching up with her.


I also had a little chat with Coral from Links of London and spotted Dominic from Aurora on the dance-floor!


The evening was hosted by Welsh TV presenter, Gethin Jones. He was a superb MC and had us all smiling. He was rather nice to look at, too! What can I say? I love seeing gents in the smart evening suits and when you throw in a bit of the old Welsh charm it’s a captivating combination.

The next day Graham and I met up before he went to QVC for more Clogau shows. We had a cheeky glass of fizz in the top floor bar of the stunning hotel where the event was held. Sadly this is the only photo of the two of us together from the occasion. I think we must’ve just had too much fun to take photos but we have vowed that if we go next year we need some pics of us together in our finery. If you haven’t seen Graham before he is a very snazzy dresser and I rather regret not capturing what he wore for you to see!


One of the biggest highlights of the whole thing was my hotel stay. I was booked in at the Park Lane Hilton, where the awards were taking place, but there was a mistake with my booking. Due to this error the receptionist apologised and gave me the Park Lane Suite! I could not stop smiling when I walked through the doors! It was like a massive apartment with views over Hyde Park.

The bathroom was about the size of my bedroom, if not bigger! I kept giggling as I explored it all! Every cloud has a silver lining and that one was well worth the temporary inconvenience upon arrival! I suspect that will be a once in a lifetime experience for me and I appreciated every second!


OK, enough about me… let’s talk about the subject of unwanted hair. Not the most exciting thing in the world but something lots of us are concerned with. Next Monday at midnight and all day Tuesday our Today’s Special Value offer from Iluminage will be focusing on giving us permanent, safe and fast results. This is true professional technology from a company who make machines for professional salons worldwide. Most importantly, for me, it’s painless!

There are other forms of hair reduction devices, we sell some on QVC. What’s really great about this is it’s suitable for ALL skin colours and is effective on the widest range of hair colours. I’ve watched some YouTube videos of people who have bought and reviewed this machine. I’d encourage you to do your homework if you’re interested. It’s the first and only device to combine IPL (intense pulsed light) with RF (radio frequency) energies to disrupt the hair follicle, reducing hair growth.

Studies have shown that it reduces hair by up to 95% in just 6 weeks (that’s after 7 treatments over 6 weeks). It can also be used on the face as well as the body.

The savings we have are just brilliant too, but only from midnight to midnight if it lasts that long. Typically you’d expect to pay around £375, but our offer is around £300  – plus, we will be offering a 90-day extended money back guarantee. So, if unwanted hair bothers you, this is a truly fantastic deal not to be missed.

Take care and see you soon on the old telly box!

Love Catherine xx
