We’ve moved!

30

Hello,

Regular readers of the presenter blogs will have seen me harping on about moving house for many months (and indeed many will have heard me talking about it on-air too!). Well, after many false starts and disappointments, it’s finally happened! After more than eight years living in a Gloucestershire village, we are still in our beloved Gloucestershire but back in town where our friends and social life are, and we couldn’t be happier!

We are still surrounded by boxes, have lots of decorating to do and the garden to sort out,  but it’s just wonderful to finally be where we have longed to be for so many months. The first thing I did when we got the kitchen sorted was to unpack the gorgeous octopus bowl I bought last summer for our new house when we thought a move was imminent; unfortunately it had to stay in its box back then, but now it’s in pride of place on the island (an island! We’ve never had a kitchen island before!). I’ll show you more photos as we go along.

I’ve taken just over a week off work to get everything organised at home but I’m still keeping my eye on what’s going on in QVC-land, particularly in fashion as we have a lot of exciting stuff coming up. I’m trying to wear more dresses this year (and get out of my skinny jeans/leggings fashion rut!) and like many of the presenters I’ve rather fallen in love with the Jolie Moi range which is quite new to QVC. I wore this green leopard print dress on air recently and loved it, especially with my teal Bronx boots (both pictured below) which I’m also slightly obsessed with!

We have some great fashion Today’s Special Value offers coming up this week too. Thursday and Friday are Mid-Season Sale days (hurray!) with lots of bargains to be had across various departments including fashion. On Thursday, Isaac Mizrahi brings us a Today’s Special Value offer in the shape of a pair of slim leg, pull-on trousers. There will be Petite (27.5” inseam) and Regular (30.5”) options and five colour choices: Black, Dark Navy, Green, Mocha, and Grey/Stone.

Then on Friday there’ll be a Today’s Special Value offer from H by Halston: a set of two scoop neck, short sleeve tops. These are in a lovely modal fabric and have a wonderfully flattering, slightly swingy shape with side vents. The colour choice is Green with Blue, Lilac with Turquoise, Black with Red or White with Coral.

Both of these offers bring us great wardrobe basics for spring at really affordable prices. Look out for them later this week!

Staying with fashion, you’ve probably seen the ‘Love’ T-shirt by Luisa Conti on numerous presenters including me recently – I featured it in my blog of the 28th February. It’s been so popular that it’s currently sold out in lots of sizes, so when Chloe, one of our fab producers, tried to order one to wear on a special day out she was disappointed. We’re about the same size, so she came knocking on my dressing room door and I was happy to oblige! Hence my T-shirt headed off to Fortnum & Mason for afternoon tea with Chloe, who teamed it with a pair of high-waisted red trousers and looked very lovely indeed, don’t you think?

Right, that’s it for now… back to trying to make this new house into a home, and empty some more boxes! I’m back at work later this week so see you then.

Love Jackie x

    Hi Jackie,
    So you have finally moved. It will seem a forever job unpacking the boxes and getting it all sorted. But once it is all done, you will be able to sit back and enjoy. With your glass of wine of course.

    I do like the LOVE T Shirt. QVC do have some lovely things on especially the fashions. I love your shows with Ruth.

    Love your octopus bowl.

    Hope all goes well with the unpacking, and hope you will soon be settled in. Gosh your Husband is tall.

    Love
    Jean xx

    I bought some diamonique simulated tanzanite drop earrings some months back (item number 337996) at £25.02 I absolutely love them and have had so many comments and compliments when I have worn them I wondered if there was any chance that theses could be made in other colours ie red or green. I am also thrilled that you are doing more jewellery in coloured gems and as I love small drop earrings I would love to see designs like that many thanksI would be grateful if my name was not revealed

      So glad you’re happy with your earrings and I’ll certainly pass your request on to our buyers!

    Hi Jackie,
    Congratulations! What a grand front door! It’s stunning. As is your gorgeous kitchen and island. You need a big kitchen to have an island! It looks great. Now you can do more socialising in town! I live your green dress too. I’d love to wear nice dresses to work! Look forward to more photos x
