Time to clean house and teeth


Hello – I hope you’ve all been keeping well. The summer holidays have arrived and the kids are already driving me nuts! I took them to the dentist for a check-up and they passed with flying colours, Izzy is a little shark, that’s what they call them when their big teeth come through before the little ones fall out.

We have finally managed to book our holidays for the end of August, we are going to Spain with friends. My mum is going to have them for a week in Wales soon though, which they will love. I’m so excited that they’re going, not because I will be grateful for a relief from the endless bickering, but because I’m going to decorate the house when they’re away. I am ridiculously excited!

I’m changing the play room into a dining room, and creating a little space for me to work. I am craving a little spot in the house just for me… no Lego in sight! I will show you how it all turns out next week!

It always amazes me the variety of products that we have here at QVC, and it’s definitely worth searching for items you might not think we would have, because we might surprise you!

Did you know that we have wallpaper? We have two styles from Mini Moderns. The Whitby in Lido is my favourite.

We also have the homeware giant Habitat now too. This set is such great value for an oak extending table and four chairs! At the time of writing this blog these rope storage baskets from Amanda Holdens’s BundleBerry range are nearly half price! Love the Coral! Great for storing kids toys, magazines or blankets.

If you’re looking to add glamour into your home then JM – Julien Macdonald’s home range that he designs exclusively for the Q, is fabulous! I love these mirrored table lamps, and they come with the shades too. For finishing touches we have the most amazing selection of Peony faux florals – how stunning are these?

I love these jewellery boxes from Lola Rose – the malachite is stunning! If you’re looking to organise, these Collier Campbell desk tidy pots are so pretty, and you get all three!

In other Q news Butler & Wilson are celebrating 50 years in business this year and we have a special show at 6pm on 1st August with Julia showcasing their new anniversary range to celebrate. I’m loving so much of their range right now.

And check out our Big Deals this week…

We have a gorgeous light viscose top from Frank Usher, the Green Caviar set from SBC, a Morphy Richards steam iron and three-piece Wetbrush detangle set.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Speak soon

    Lovely family orientated blog from you. You have two very attractive and happy children…just like you! Hope decorating is going well and children are enjoying time with Granny. She will be able to spoil them.
