It’s funny, this time of year can often be my least favourite because Christmas feels like a lifetime ago and spring still seems so far away. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a glass-half-full kinda gal who always looks for the silver linings, even when faced with the most challenging situations, but it’s not called the ‘bleak midwinter’ for nothing.
I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions as such, but I do appear to have adopted an unofficial one, and that’s to spend a little more time enjoying the people in my life. Many of my dearest friends were made here at QVC. When I say it’s like a family I really do mean it. Pipa and I were chatting yesterday and we were saying how true that is. Many of us have grown up together in a way. We’ve been through the good and bad times together just like family, and there is a real sense of belonging to something very special.
Tom Ogden, who many of you will know and love for his passion and knowledge of beauty, spent several years with us at QVC with Alpha H. That chapter drew to a natural close not long after the very sad passing of his dear friend and founder of Alpha-H, Michelle Doherty. I was honoured to share Tom’s final Alpha-H show with him, which was bittersweet, as we were sad to see him leave, but also happy, to see him embark on his next adventures. We spent a wonderful afternoon together at The Ivy in leafy Richmond the other day. We laughed, talked about times gone by and discussed our pusscats (if you didn’t know, Tom has two sweetheart Ragdoll boys… you can find him on Instagram here. )
These days I much prefer an afternoon out than crazy late nightery. It was a perfect, long, lingering lunch. So great to catch up with Tom. He’s been a very busy boy – always working hard – and he sends his love to you all by the way. You’re a vital part of this family, too. Don’t ever forget that, we love you!
Prove it, you say? Ok, we say! With some help from Gatineau we have a brilliant Today’s Special Value offer for you this week. We are going to knock your little winter socks off with astounding value! Featuring a 50ml size of customer-favourite Melatogenine Cream worth £89.00 alone, the entire collection would cost a whopping £253 if bought direct. As 2022 is Gatineau’s 90th year milestone, they’re giving us incredible value as you’ll get the whole set for less than you’d pay for the Melatogenine Cream!
Gatineau’s powerful formulations combine natural ingredients with cutting-edge biotechnology to create a range of professional-quality skincare which helps deliver immediate and long-lasting results.
Is there a better way to celebrate Gatineau’s 90th year than with a fantastic start-to-finish routine? Not in our eyes! This four-piece collection has everything you need, a cleanser, a serum, eye cream, moisturiser, to help target the early signs of ageing… that’s your whole routine! Of course you can also mix these fab formulas with your existing faves or start a whole new regime, either way we’re sure you’re going to love these top picks from Gatineau’s lauded Melatogenine MorphoBiotique range.
Powered by science – formulated to help reduce the early visible signs of ageing, Gatineau’s superb Melatogenine MorphoBiotique range combines Melatogenine with special MorphoTriPeptide technologies, plus great burdock root and chestnut seed extract, and works to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while leaving skin feeling more hydrated and looking more radiant.
Refresh your regime – looking to update your skincare stash for 2022? This collection includes everything you need for a comprehensive beauty revolution that’ll help leave your skin glowing. Not only is it a great way of trying new formulas or stocking up on firm favourites, but if “New Year, new skin” was on your resolutions list this year, this edit is the perfect way to breathe new life into your beauty rituals.

Suitable for all skin types and those concerned with ageing.

I’m looking forward to airing this live in my ‘Beauty Loves with Gatineau’ show this Thursday at 3pm. Oooh, I nearly forgot to mention, there’s an Auto Delivery option too which means you can get this remarkable saving all over again in 90 days! If that’s not showing you Gatineau fans love, I don’t know what is.
I like to share with you when I try new products I love. Launching at the end of the month is a brand called Sea Magik. I tried their bath salts and shampoo & conditioner. Wow, what a lovely range and the scents in the hair products are divine. They reminded me of having a spa massage, they’re that sophisticated! I just thought I’d give you a heads up ahead of the launch. Definitely a brand to watch out for.
I hope you are enjoying your 2022 so far. Have you made any resolutions? If so, I hope they’re going well for you. Please share them in the comments below. I may not always get time to reply but I do love hearing what you have to say.
Lots of love and gratitude for your kind support,
