This is It!


Well hi to all of you lovely people!

Is it too late to wish everyone a happy new year in the third week of January? Probably!

Anyway, I do hope – now that Christmas, wrapping paper, and left over turkey are all but a distant memory – life has now resumed to a more normal pace again.

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves, just in case you didn’t get what you wanted, or those resolutions are getting tougher and have been relegated to “start again next month”, or you’ve just got a dose of the good old ‘January blues’, we have the answer here at the Q (even if you answered in the affirmative to all of the above!).

This is indeed It!

We have two full days of beauty coming up this weekend, here’s a quick rundown on my highlights – starting with Sunday’s Today’s Special Value from IT Cosmetics (see above!).

It Cosmetics Brow Power - 216541Now, in case you’re not terribly familiar with the brand, it has become increasingly popular over the short period that we have featured it on air. My daughter-in-law Bex absolutely adores this range and Santa saw fit to include several pieces in her stocking!

The coverage is excellent from their foundations, and she adores their bronzers. My favourite, however, is their brow product, Brow Power . It’s a good job it comes in a duo as you wouldn’t want to run out!

Not just me talking though, 51 five star reviews!

Molton Brown will also be making an appearance. I bought so many of their little bauble shower gels at Christmas for everyone, they were a real hit, but also great for traveling or a long weekend somewhere. One of their most popular items though is their Pink and Black Peppercorn Duo.

My current favourite mascara is from BenefitThey’re Real! – and yes they have a full hour show coming up at 3pm on Saturday. The results are amazing and, if you haven’t tried it – I reckon the name just about says it all!

Tarte Lipsurgence - 208715But without a doubt, when it comes to make-up, one brand that has shot right up there between professionals and consumers alike is Tarte!

We will be treated to two shows on Saturday at midday and 9pm. There too many amazing products to mention here, but I will say that both Catherine and myself adore their lipglosses and Lipsurgence is simply stunning!

So what with other longstanding huge brands such as Gatineau, Elemis and Liz Earle, there sure to be something for everyone this weekend.

After having a wee post Christmas break, I will be back on your screens on Sunday at 4pm with an hour of IT Cosmetics and also at 6pm in a premiere show with our very own resident beauty expert Alison Young.
Look forward to seeing you then.

Lots of love and, by the way, if you are waning somewhat in those New Years resolutions – don’t panic! There are millions of us all in the same boat.

Just need to step back out of the boat and get those toes firmly back in the water (talking to myself here!)!
Take care,
Anne xx

    Hi Martin. Good to hear from you. I started in November 1999 and Charlie in January 2000. I think we ended up being only a month apart actually going on air though…. So yes very close indeed.
    Hope you’re well 🙂

    Hiya Anne
    Happy New Year to you as well.
    Not made any resolutions this year, just go with the flow, think you do better without making any, and that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it.
    Much Love
    Elizabeth X
