Isn’t this lovely? We get given gorgeous jewellery to wear when we are on air, and I decided to wear the Michelle Mone big blue heart necklace and earrings set with lovely simulated diamonds, from the Diamonique range. Plus, I found out that my Diamonique bee range will be back on around the 26th May, together with… a watch with bees on! I am very happy. 🙂
I took ages to do this photograph. The problem is I’ve got a bit of a double chin going on at the moment, and getting close enough to the jewellery without getting any of my chin hairs in the way (!), while also trying to stretch out the waddle underneath my jawline was… a bit of a challenge. 🙂 The things we go through to bring you stuff on QVC! 🙂 I do love getting samples to wear though! It went very, very well with the Dannii Minogue range that launched successfully, check out her jewellery as well on our website here, especially if you get some money to spend on yourself for Mother’s Day. 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, if you are celebrating and thinking of you if you’re not. For me, I won’t see my little Phoebe or Lauren of course, but Brad will come over lunchtime on Saturday and I get to Blake-sit overnight as well. Then I’ll see my own mum on the Sunday and be in at QVC in the evening. Lovely. 🙂
So what about you, what do you love? Do you love our beauty? Would you like to join in? We would love to show your videos or audio clips. All you need to do is email the address above saying why you love QVC, give us any questions for Ali Young, favourite brands, or just why you’ve been shopping with QVC, the presenters banter, et cetera. Go for it!
Harp stays sharp

Was once more at the vaccine centre this week helping out, although only for half a shift, as I had to do an extra shift at QVC on Tuesday night. Thought I would show you this little video that I took when they played some wonderful harp music to entertain all the volunteers. Apparently it is ramping up and will be extremely busy from next week onwards! I love being part of all this. Hope you have got your vaccine okay?
Twinkle twinkle little wheelbarrow
Thought I would send you this, this week. It’s just a screenshot from a video I got sent by my lovely Lauren. Little Phoebe, aged nearly two and a half-years-old, is getting used to nursery now, and came home singing Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star, including as they bounce her along in the wheelbarrow. How cute! She has stopped crying when she comes out now, and only needs a little push to go in. I think she will really excel, as she is very intelligent and loves the stimulation. Really looking forward to seeing her again. At least I have Blake coming to stay this week. #Bubble
Another triumph for Rachael in make-up and the Dyson Airwrap. I have found the most perfect spray to use with it, though. The Philip Kingsley Perfect Prep Primer, which is sometimes in stock on our website here, and it really makes the style last, I love it!
Unusual words – take the test
Saw this on Facebook this week. How many did you get? I only only got four! One of them was aglet, which I knew from one of our shoe shows! Amazing what you pick up nowadays, isn’t it? I’ll never forget years ago telling people that I found out the gap between your collarbones was called the manubrium divide! 🙂 It doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue or come up in conversation does it? 🙂
Okay, so this week I started watching Ginny and Georgia, but not before I had completely binge-watched The Stranger, the Harlan Coban TV series based on his book. It is very dark, a proper thriller, and some really amazing acting. Dervla Kerwen stars and Jennifer Saunders has a small part. It got me wanting to get home and watch the next bit in true blockbuster thriller fashion. Must look up some more of his books.
Ginny and Georgia again incorporates that popular combination of proper dramatised flashbacks linking earlier life with now, for a daughter who is 15-years-old, and her mother who is 30-years-old, from Alabama. Ginny is really intelligent and articulate, and within a short while had me hooked when she showed up the teacher who was trying to belittle her. I love the mother’s friend as well, and her love interest – the mayor is quite hot! It’s only one series and it’s 10 episodes, I’m on episode six. Loving it. 🙂

Another belter this week as it’s the turn of Evey Amery. Tune in next week to hear Will’s conversation with Dr Nassif. You can listen to them all here.
A little meander here and a reminder that every Thursday night I go live for #ThursdayBantz over on my Facebook page. For social media links, see below. 🙂
Book of the week
I’ve just started The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman. But I also bought something very interesting. Malcolm Gladwell has been a favourite of mine since The Tipping Point, years ago, Outliers is also very interesting. Now his latest one is called Blink – Thinking Without Thinking. It’s all about making decisions on instincts and intuition. Now, what have I been saying for ages about gut instinct and basically about the gut? 🙂 Makes a change too, to have a little non-fiction. I am looking forward to reporting back on this one.

Next week – what happens this weekend when my lovely little granddaughter Blake comes to stay overnight as her mum and dad need time to themselves to start packing up the house for their imminent move in a couple of weeks. I love it when she is with me. Last time, I introduced her to Narnia and she won’t stop talking about it, reading the books and watching the film. Wonder what I can introduce her to this time – what do you recommend? A real children’s classic?
