Hello Everyone, I hope you are all well.
I’ve been pretty busy over the past month or so, what with getting used to things here at QVC and wedding prep! It might seem pretty quick after the engagement last month, but we have decided to get married in five months time so it’s all systems go here! Last week was particularly exciting as I found my dress! Obviously I’m not going to share much about it before the big day, but I am so happy to have found it and can’t wait to wear it.
I’ve also been outside picking sloes as we have decided to make sloe gin to put in mini bottles for wedding favours. I have really fond memories of picking sloes as a child, but I clearly blocked out the bit where your hands get scratched to pieces on the sharp thorns amongst the berries! Here I am picking them whilst Monty waited patiently to get on with the walk.
The top I am wearing is a lovely Joules number – I am a big big fan of Joules and have a lot of their coats and jackets, so I was really pleased to know they are a regular on QVC Style. This one is available on the QVC website here. It’s 100% cotton, so super comfortable and breathable if you are walking (or picking!) but it still looks lovely. The perfect option for walking to a pub lunch I think!! You don’t have to accessorize yours with a dog whistle though…
So far, I have 4 jars of sloes and sugar, becoming syrupy – I need to get back out there and get a couple more filled before all the berries disappear.
If you love walking the dog or getting out in the fresh air even as it gets cold, then you really must check out the coats we have at QVC. There’s an amazing range and, after a few outerwear shows, I am very, very tempted myself. I will admit to being very partial to coats and jackets! I love the Helene Berman edge-to-edge styles, which come in a range of amazing colours, and Centigrade have some really great choices that mix style and practicality.
I love this time of year for many reasons, but a big one is the fashion and style – I much prefer it to dressing for summer. There’s loads of inspiration around if you watch us on the Style channel. Remember, we are now live 3 – 7pm, 7 days a week. So if you’re looking to update your wardrobe for Autumn/Winter, then join us when you can, because we’ve loads of fabulous brands and ideas at the moment. And that includes the Big Deal: this week’s is fab for right now too, because it’s the sort of footwear you need for this time of year and also a great Christmas gift.
I’m actually after some ankle boots myself, so I am pretty tempted by these Moda in Pelle beauties, especially at such a great price. The only dilemma is which colour?! Which one would you got for? I do love the Red and Burgundy, but I’m also a sucker for classic Black. Let me know if you get your hands on them… I think I might go for it!
We do, of course, have other Big Deals running this week over on QVC Beauty and Christmas. Beauty-wise, we have the Perricone No Make Up Make Up Collection, which is fabulous if you are already a fan of scientific skincare and want to introduce it into your make-up too, or if you want to try the brand out at an unbelievably good price.
On the Christmas channel, we have a fab Magniflex 3-in-1 Mattress Topper. I think mattress toppers are great if your own mattress is a bit old, or perhaps you have an old one of yours as your spare room mattress (guilty!). Just adding this topper is going to make it feel more comfortable and more like new. Also, I think the fact that it is 3-in-1 is so clever. Go on the web and watch the video if you haven’t already to see how it works!
Well, that’s it from me for now – I’ve got to go and have a discussion about caterers next – once they are booked we can relax a bit I think! Let me know what you’re up to this week and what you’ve got on your list to update your winter wardrobe; I’d love to hear from you.
Remember you can find me on:
Enjoy the rest of your week,
