Had a friend from Australia in London this week and it was so great to catch up. We had some lovely meals out, I showed him all round Borough and Bermondsey and he even joined me for my Monday night meditation class. We hadn’t seen each other for eight years but felt like only yesterday, just like they say ‘old friends are best friends.’
Did you catch any of the Christmas Gift weekend? What a fun and busy weekend it was! I particularly enjoyed working with Lisa Potter Dixon and the Benefit team on Saturday, a range full of personality! I have already bought two of the ‘Best of Benefit‘ kits as Christmas pressies – brownie points for those I’m thinking!
So, lots to look forward this week at QVC:
– Sunday sees the final Amazon Fire Today’s Special Value of the year, a brilliant tablet computer from an incredible brand!
– Monday 31st October from 4pm – 6pm I will be hosting a very special two-hour show of the Great Taste Awards; a chance to meet artisan producers and award winning brands that bring truly delicious food and drink. There’ll be everything from cheeses and cider to pies and popcorn. Follow me on twitter for more updates nearer the time.
A couple of beauty goodies to look out for too; have you ever tried skincare by Gale Hayman? I know her Lip Lift is the iconic product from the range which you may have used but her skincare is worth a look too. I have been trying out this duo and have to say for £20 its remarkable! The eye cream is refreshing and leaves the skin feeling so much smoother and the super rich cream moisturiser is wonderful on these winter days to really hydrate and brighten the whole complexion. Reviews are good for this duo too!
Also keep an eye open for SBC‘s brand new sage and lemon cleanser, a wonderful refreshing cleanser that is a great if you want a foaming cleanser that is quick and easy, particularly good I would say on light make-up or no make up days.
And finally, competition time!! How would you like to WIN this collection of men’s grooming from new brand to QVC, Scaramouche & Fandango? All made in Britain with super cool packaging and wonderful formulations. This London men’s grooming company really know what it takes to get us guys looking, feeling and smelling good and ready to take on the day without the fuss or complication that some of us guys just don’t want.

I have been trying some of the range and I really like it, I think your son, brother, hubby or boyfriend will do too! Make sure you look out for them launching on-air on Thursday 3rd November!
