A weekend not to be missed…

Hello and thanks for stopping by to read my blog. This week, I’m focusing on the upcoming weekend September 17th, as there are three very exciting things happening. First of all, it’s Beau’s 2nd birthday on Sunday 19th, so a big day in our lives. Also this weekend at QVC, we have a fantastic launch of Ruth Langsford’s Intarsia Heart design jumper and an incredible four-piece Anti-Ageing Radiant Skin Collection from Elemis. I know how much both of these will be loved by so many of you, myself included.

Skincare has become an important part of my daily routine, not only as I make my way towards my mid 40’s – gulp! How did that happen? But also because of being pregnant and my skin fluctuating much more and, I dare say, showing the signs of ageing a bit more too. So I was delighted when professional skincare expert, head trainer at Elemis and Brand Ambassador, Keeley Aydin, asked if I’d like to join her on her regular Wednesday evening skin care session on Instagram live to talk specifically about skincare in pregnancy. Many of you have asked me about this over time, and now I can report back on what I use.

I am very fortunate in the work I do that I am asked  to sample various products and then speak about them, and for some time now Elemis, Liz Earle and Gatineau have become my staples. During pregnancy, it’s really important to me that I use skincare that is suitable in pregnancy. Keeley and I spoke a lot about how to care for the skin and bring back the glow. Contrary to popular belief, being pregnant doesn’t always give you a glow and this time round my skin has appeared duller and more marked than before. I’ve drawn up a little list of the items I regularly use, and if this subject interests you, then I would recommend taking a look at the chat we had here. After all, it’s not everyday you get the opportunity to speak with such a highly respected and regarded expert.

My skincare:

Elemis Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix

Elemis Pro-Collagen Renewal Serum

Elemis six-piece Pro-Collagen Rose Nourish & Glow collection

Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Pads Duo

Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil Duo

Gatineau Supersize DefiLift Neck and Decollete Gel

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Collection

Are you in need of a skin boost and upping your skincare? Does having a fuss-free skincare regime from day to night appeal to you? And are you entering the anti-ageing skincare group of people? Welcome aboard. I’ve been here a while and I find having a good and easy routine can make a huge difference to your skin and how you feel about your appearance, plus, make-up sits so much better on well cared-for skin.

This weekend at QVC we will be celebrating our fabulous brands with the beauty event running from September 17th – 20th. It’s a great opportunity to stock up on your favourites and be inspired with great gifting ideas too at great prices.

Here are the details for the brand new Today’s Special Value, which is already on pre-sale now here and will launch at 9pm on Saturday 18th September. It’s a HUGE saving: If  you were to buy the items in this Elemis Pro-Collagen Collection individually from QVCUK.com you’d pay £236.90, plus P&P. So for our Today’s Special Value price of just £67.98, plus P&P, you’re saving £171.92!

This four-piece Anti-Ageing Radiant Skin Collection from Elemis features super-sized Pro-Collagen Marine Mask, Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream, Pro-Collagen Tri-Acid Peel and Pro-Collagen Marine Oil, all formulated to target visible signs of ageing and leave the complexion looking smoother, softer and luminous. Reveal younger looking skin with the help of this fabulous collection, which will take your skincare regimen to a new level and slot neatly into your daily routine to help give you a radiant complexion.

Pro-Collagen is one of the signature collections of the Elemis brand, and features treatments specifically formulated to help target visible signs of ageing, helping to create a supple, moisturised and revitalised look.

This is the first time ever in a Today’s Special Value they have bought the Pro-Collagen Marine Mask in a supersize, which lets you enjoy the benefits of deep hydration and a dewy, luminous skin finish for longer. Boasting an indulgent cream formula packed with antioxidant-rich ingredients, you’ll unveil a firmer, more-toned appearance again and again, without the need to stock up for weeks.

This is a day-to-night anti-ageing treatment collection too, so your skin can stay looking smooth and soft, round the clock. Pro-Collagen Tri-Acid Peel works to lift away dull and dead skin cells for a smoother, luminous look in the day, while Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream intensely hydrates and targets the look of fine lines overnight. Meanwhile, the versatile Pro-Collagen Marine Oil can be used both morning and evening to plump your skin and leave it looking luminous.

Make your new regime last and stay stocked up on your favourite skincare by selecting the Auto Delivery option, which will give you the same fabulous products at the same amazing price, without the gift box, five times more over the next year – what’s more, on the fifth time, you’ll receive a full size 50ml Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream, making it even better.

Now, if we go back one day to Friday evening at 9pm, Ruth Langford will be launching her fabulous also now available on this pre-launch link.

I have a feeling this is going to be incredibly popular as well, especially at that price! I have the black one and love that the heart design is woven into the jumper. The neckline is very flattering, as is the length. I think it’s smart enough to look great under a blazer and has got that cool, classy look to work well with your faux leather trousers or pencil skirts.

Colour options:

  • Sunset
  • Latte
  • Black
  • Cobalt
  • Magenta

And it comes in sizes XS – 3XL!

I will be joining Ruth on Saturday 18th from 3pm – 5pm, so please tune in if you can. I love that Ruth’s designs can gives us all the confidence to wear clothes that make us feel great and you can be rest assured her clothes are always made to a very high quality. More good news is that you can use the code BIG3EZ on her Today’s Special Value.

Finally, but by no means least, our little boy turns two-years-old on Sunday, I can’t believe it! He is a proper toddler now and runs about, climbs on everything and speaks and sings. His two new words are “absolutely” and “definitely”, which sound very cute when he says them. On Sunday we have planned a little party with some of his friends and family. We are very excited to see his little face open his presents, especially as one of them is a little playhouse that he has seen in a shop already and loved it.

In my next blog I will share some photos of the afternoon. 🙂

Until then, take care of yourselves and I look forward to hearing from you too.

Love Eilidh
