Hello, it feels like an age since we last spoke. I hope you’re all well. I’m so excited that September is here! I actually skipped into work today as the kids have finally gone back to school. Hoorah! I asked them to let me take a nice pic but they were having none of it!
We survived the school holidays. It was pretty event-packed. We took a trip to Javea in Spain and visited some friends that have just moved there. It was lovely to get away and the kids all played so well together.
We also visited my brother and his partner Ellie in Falmouth, Cornwall. We had great fun and we got to meet my brand new little niece, Pip, who is just delicious!
We also took the kids to Kidzania, which we’d never been to before, and I’ve never experienced anything like it! It’s basically a world for children where they go and work in different jobs and get paid in Kidzania money, which they can spend on the way out. There were lots of jobs to try, they could be a Spy, TV Presenter, Radio DJ, Shop Keeper, a Policeman or woman, a Firefighter, a Banker and Vet!! The list goes on! There was so much to do. A top tip if you decide to go is to pick which ones you really want to do to get those done first, and also to go early as there can be a wait. Iz and Josh loved being pilots!
The weather is definitely turning and I’m excited for the autumn fashion here on the Q! We have an amazing selection of ankle boots. I’ve just order these Kisha boots from Moda in Pelle in the teal. Dreamy! I’ve also gone for these pointed ankle boots from Peter Kaiser.
And these from Bronx in the white! Another lovely thing about September, is that it’s the 15th anniversary of Yankee Candle here at QVC – so expect some fabulous shows! I’m loving this Coastal Drift set at the moment as it makes me feel I’m close to my brother.
As it’s a new month, it means that we also have a new Beauty Pick of the Month, the Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer from Benefit. It’s available in 12 shades and is a full coverage liquid formula that hides under-eye circles, and redness or blemishes. It’s lovely and lightweight too… and the packaging is great!
A new Supersize of the Month is the Perfect Night’s Sleep Supersize Pillow Spray from Neom. You spritz this on your pillow, then lie back and inhale for 15seconds and the formula of 14 beautiful essential oils will help you enjoy a deep night’s sleep. There’s English lavender, chamomile and patchouli, all 100% natural. And best of all its only available here at QVC.
We also have a promotion this month on the Luxform Stainless Steel Dual Head Battery Powered Security Light, to help you feel safe as the dark nights start to draw in. AND our Diamonique Pick of the Month is this beautiful 1ct tw heart pendant with a 45cm sterling silver chain, there is rhodium-plated or gold-plated to choose from!
So many fab deals!! And can I just add… if you’re looking for something to keep your jewellery in then check out this set of 2 velvet jewellery boxes that Amanda Holden’s range, BundleBerry have created. The value is nuts… I just have to choose which colour I want but I want them ALL!! The Light Grey is so cute!
