Hello there! Welcome to this week’s blog update! If you watch regularly, you’ll already have seen my new hairdo.
I did have someone on social media questioning QVC about how I’d been able to get to the salon to have my hair cut when they’re all shut… what a compliment that was to me! I didn’t go to a salon at all…
I went to my own bathroom armed with tips I’d picked up on good old YouTube, a comb, four elastic bands and some old scissors that came with my son’s clipper set a few years ago and I got to work!
I’ve always enjoyed playing around with my hair, my make-up and nails. For me it’s quite good fun but, during these days we’re living in, it became a necessity. I wanted to trim my ends and then I thought, hey, why not just go for a fresh new look altogether so opted for a bob.
Here’s the video of me cutting it…

Obviously, it’s not perfect but it will do until I can get back to a professional. Hairdressers of the world, you have my utmost respect and I will happily be bringing custom back to your doors as soon as it’s possible to do so. For now, though, I’ll keep playing with my new do!
Needless to say, my Dyson hair appliances have been brilliant for my new style. I wouldn’t be without them. The Dyson Corrale straighter is great for getting waves, curls and, of course, straightening but even if I use the Airwrap with the brush attachment or the Supersonic dryer it’s quite good to grab the Corrale for a quick bevelling-under of the fringe. And the shine.. wow! I’ve been using the My Hair Doctor range on it for the past week or so and I do feel that’s made a lovely difference to how healthy it looks and feels, too.
There’s a really exciting launch coming next month which will help me out if I regret going shorter, too! Easilocks hair extensions! I was so thrilled when I heard they were coming to QVC that my boss asked if I’d like to swap my days around so I could present the premiere show! Yippee! I’ll be sure to let you know when the show time is all finalised so you can be sure to tune in if you’re like me and love all things hair.
Ok, enough about the hair. Onto more practical things…
One of my all-time best buys and permanent household must-haves are the It Works blocks. I’ve used them for years. If you’ve never tried them before you might want to check out the Today’s Special Value offer coming up at 9pm on the 4th and featuring all day on the 5th.
There’s also going to be an Auto Delivery option to allow you keep the value going for another three shipments, each three months apart, so if you sign up to that it’s approximately a year’s worth overall and all at the special price! I’m definitely going for Auto Delivery!
I’ve been in the position of having run out of them before and went searching on the high street for something similar. I found it (but not the It Works brand) but I was honestly shocked at how expensive it was compared to our It Works offers! You might even know the one I’m talking about. I begrudgingly bought it, one solid block, and had to cut it down. It did work well, I won’t lie, but I’d never pay that price again!! I’ve yet to find anything that comes close to It Works value, personally.
The It Works 40-piece TSV pack of cleaning blocks are made from high-tech melamine that only needs tap water to work and can be used multiple times to remove all manner of stains. These environmentally friendly cleaning blocks are chemical free which could also save you more money on additional cleaning products.
The blocks can be cut into whatever size you need. Obviously, this makes them go even further but also allows you to get the perfect size for each job.
Here’s what you get:
- 25 blocks medium size 7.6cm x 5.7cm x 2cm
- 10 blocks large size 12 cm x 6 cm x 2cm
- 5 blocks chunky size 12 cm x 6 cm x 3cm
Here are just some ways you can use them. On cooking appliances, pans, ceramic hobs and cooker tops. Pretty much on all surfaces such as tile, laminate, wood floors and trainers. Use them to remove marks on leather (real or faux), from car interiors to handbags and even shoes. They can bring the sparkle back to alloy wheels and remove rubber scuff marks on bumpers, too.
Remove grime from computer keyboards and workstations, eradicate scuff marks on laminate and even permanent marker and crayon from floor tiles. I think you’ll find even more ways to use them once you get them home.
I’d love to know if you’ve been doing any DIY hairdos and also if you’re a fan of the It Works blocks. Let me know with a comment below. Even if I don’t comment with an individual response please know I do check back and read them all ❤️
Take care and stay safe. Lots of love,
