Nice top, shame about the hat!

You know how we are supposed to help to show off our fashion with clever, model-like shots? You’ve probably seen the ones of some of the other girls, the tall, slim ones who always look brilliant in whatever they’re wearing? Well, this was my effort this week… Loved this Seasalt top from the fashion extravaganza. It’s so flattering – it fits neatly into the ribs then flows away from the body (handy!) and is a super, natural, breathable fabric! Cute print too. If it’s available, it is item 189333. Trouble is, I didn’t notice the plant behind my head! Ha ha. We have some lovely fashion still online, many pieces at special prices. Go here to have a look at the whole range with pictures online… and see how the professionals do it.

Best job ever

Talking of professionals, when I was helping out at the mass vaccine centre in Epsom again this week, I got a chance to interview a couple of the lovely nurses who administer the injections. Debbie is the head nurse and one of the regulars. She is a real character. She agreed to this clip and said something wonderful about her role in the national drive to make the country safe…

Another lovely nurse called Justina. She jumps up from the chair and dances around a little bit when she’s calling people over to her, making them really at ease. Lovely people work there… we both agree!

People really are making an effort to help the volunteers and staff lately. There was a whole batch of new treats and cakes delivered this week, thank you local people, especially those on the Facebook group – Banstead Today. Recently, there was even music!

A proper community pulling together. Wonderful, so glad to be part of it. No shift next week on my usual day, as supplies are slightly lower for a week, then they will pick up again after that apparently. I’ll probably miss it next week!

Snippets

Eye magnet

So, we had the launch of the new Benefit ‘magnet’ mascara last week, and in case you missed it, this was the before and after shot! Amazing, right? So, if you want it – if it’s still available – it’s here online. Really powerful building effect, almost like fake lashes, I would definitely recommend! Even though my Dry Eye problem came back this week, which meant another trip to the eye specialist, with a bright red eye on the left side again. Boo. Hope it’s gone by the time I’m back on QVC on Sunday night with the new charger TSV!

Blake and the big girls

Oh bless her little heart! Went to the playground with my lovely little granddaughter, aged three-years-old, when I visited my bubble again last week. She was utterly fascinated by the bigger children and attached herself to a nice group of 10-year-old big girls who all thought she was super cute. She got them to let her squeeze right in the middle when they were on the roundabout, and they loved her to bits – kept saying how amazing and gregarious she is. So proud of her. They move into a new place in a month or so, plus, a new baby sister or brother in September!  Yes, it’s all go in her little world 🙂 and I’m so glad to be part of it.

Phoebe and the hose

Meanwhile, over in Wales, my lovely little two and a half–year-old Phoebe was learning the hard way about her daddy’s practical joking! “Look in the hose”, he said, and you can imagine what happened next! She thought it was hilarious, and kept on wanting him to do it again. Then she decided it was time to do it to the dogs! “Look in the hose, Luna, look in the hose, Baloo!” she was saying. Miss them so much. Hoping to see them as soon as we are able, whenever that will be. Still trying to work it out , as things are different in Wales!

Rosetta Deb

Thought this was really funny! Do you see the likeness? #CartoonDoppelgänger lol!!

Podcast

This week, Will sits down with fashion designer Tabitha Webb, and look out for next week’s episode, where there will be a very special guest, a new face at QVC…  Don’t miss it on Monday! You can listen to them all here.

Vlog

Heathcliff, Cathy has nothing to worry about! Antics out on a walk in the woods. 🙂 Watch here. Plus, plenty more where that came from, I post regularly on my social media, follow me below!

Book of the week

Well, I’m still in the middle of reading ‘The Mask Falling’, which is just getting really good. And my presenter colleague, Jackie Kabler, tweeted this week about her bestselling book ‘The Perfect Couple’ going back into the top 100… In America! What an amazing success. I don’t have a new one this week, but I’d like to recommend to you the book of the TV series I just binge watched…

You may remember my book of the year a couple of years ago was Behind Her Eyes, by Sarah Pinborough. The best-selling drama has been made into a fab Netflix series and it’s number one in the UK at time of writing! The audiobook is really good, or watch the TV version. It’s a story of an affair which goes wrong, then horribly wrong… And people talk about not being able to guess the twist! I certainly did not see it coming when I listened to the book, I just kept smiling for days afterwards. 🙂 It’s highly recommended.

Watch

Oh, I had a little film fest… The Kingdom is a gritty film, alternative to if you don’t want dramas about affairs or a little bit of sci-fi. It’s an American-Intelligence-goodies fighting terrorist-baddies revenge film and maybe one for those who love a bit of adventure, “shoot them up and dodge them” style! Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman. Fabulous cast.

Also watched News of the World, (nothing to do with the predecessor of the Sun on Sunday). It’s a Tom Hanks 1860s deep south western, where he plays a travelling ‘reader of the news’ who encounters a young orphan. It’s all about the relationship they develop as he tries to deliver her back to her only remaining family – against her will. Bit slow and ponderous at the start, but satisfying if you stick with it – worth it for some heart-string pulling moments.

Plus, I started watching Firefly Lane, more about that next week! Loving it so far.
